Dear Nuray,

I have seen the post you wrote to Don. Frankly i don't see any "damaging mistake" from what he said. I think you have exaggerated the issue. The story of the Quran flushed in toilet is true. BBC and CNN had broadcast the news. May be you didn't hear it. You can get the story in the following CNN's website.

or you can also read it at CBN's website

I have observed that many atrocities are being done by Muslims against not only Christians other religions too. Muslims never apologize, but if a little something anti- islam is said or done Muslims start rioting and killing. This is very very sad. I have observed that Muslims are somewhat selfish (no offence) in this. They don't apply the Golden rule. They don't respect other people's belief but they demand others to respect them. How can this be?

Recently i heard a story of a Pakistani girl (i think 16 years old) who was raped by a Muslim man holding gun inside a Church. The Christian communities complained to the police but the Muslim man is still free.

Compare this to what happend in French school where a little Muslim girl was not allowed to wear head scraf (for Sikhs also no turban and for Christians no cross)..Muslims around the world made the Muslim's girls case a big issue. Even terrorists in Iraq captured French journalists and said "this is for what is done to the Muslim girl!!"...compare this, human value is bigger or a head scarf? imagine a Christian man raping a Muslim girl inside a Mosque?
I also heard of many stories of Hindu women raped by Pakistani militants in Kashmir and other areas. But i never heard of any Hindus creating riots and killings.

On this opportunity i would like all Muslims to be sensitive about the feelings of other human beings too.

Thanking you,
Elias.
