Dear Amar,

I disagree with you that my undestanding of islam is contradicting real islam. what is real islam.Terrorists islam?All the educated people believe it my way. Uneducated ones dont think too much ,just listen to their mullahs and follow the certain rules of İslam without thinking the real goal of it.İt is not my business to interpret islam.but some more knowleged civilised people must do it.and it must be reinterprated may be in every 30 years to make it practible for us believers.

About what you ask.you must know that in the first years of islam it was obviously not accepted by the majority of the people who lived in that area.And they opened war against it. Muhammed had to make islam survive.and had to defend it.İt was a war.İn the war if you dont kill your enemy, he will kill you.So this was an order in such a condition.may be today we can interpret it this way. Even if all the world be one country someday.Even if christianity or another religion becomes the most believed one we as muslims must always peacefully keep our religion and never change it.This dont mean that we kill non believers.

I am more interested in American politics in Irak than discussing islam. I am trying to understand what Americans think and why really they are in Irak. We all know that Irak is not america's old buddy that they love them so much that they came there to help them. Why they dont go to venezualla who also has oil and also an enemy for example. Yesterday ı saw on the tv that kurd leader meeting with Bush. He was like a great hero.These scenes will make us cancer from our sorrows.

Turkey was a long time good ally of USA. We fought in Korea,we are still together in afghanistan and bosnia. we went to somali. Our soldiers are still in those countries doing the job you gave us.We are one of the first countries who recognized israel. We were always against islamofachism. And suddenly one day Mr Bush gave us a super surprise gift Kurdistan!!!

We dont want a Kurdish state. So what should we do? Open war against to USA? And do you people really think that all this ırak tragedy was worth it to do or no? I will be happy İf you would be nice enough to answer my question. But not a strereotype kind, an honest one.
