in response to reader comment: Was it coming for the French

Many thanks for your thoughts and contributions.

Firstly you must understand that those purporting to bring around violence in the name of Allah will indeed have it come round back to them it doesn't matter when. This is not what Islam is all about. However Allah (SWT) will also deal with those non-muslims bent on destroying Islam. HE said that HE brought down the Quran as the last and final favour unto mankind and that HE would Personally Protect it from any form of tampering, falsifications, amendments, etc, etc

In fact Islam does recognise other faiths and we are indeed instructed by Allah SWT to respect other faiths. Remember that it is only in the Holy Book of the Quran that we have the verses Jesus (Issa) and Maryam (Mary), etc, etc without indulging deeply. We as Muslim have no faith if we do not believe in Allah's prophets including Jesus. BUT WE MUST BELIEVE THEM TO BE PROPHETS AND MESSENGERS OF ALLAH AND NO MORE.

However Muslims are most oppressed (from time before terrorism if you may) and especially by America and Britain (America & British Administration and not Americans and the British people). Yes I appreciate where you are coming from and hope you appreciate that those ruining the name of Islam are definitely going to have their own to deal with from Allah (SWT) irrespective of whether they are Muslims or Non-Muslims. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) once found that women and children had been killed during a war and instantly instructed that women and children should not be killed. Now tell me for those who take innocent lives belonging to women and children, aren't they on the wrong and aren't they ruining the name of Islam?

Might I add that here in Kenya, you should see how Muslims are living in peace with everyone else. In fact some of my best friends are Christians. My wife used to be a catholic before becoming a Muslim. I work for a British firm here in Kenya without any reservations.

My final words are that Islam does accept other faiths (read the Quran translation and learn more truthfully about Christianity than the Bible tells us) but it is other religions who do not recognise Islam.

I still maintain Islam is the final abode for mankind because it was revealed last and God's last favour unto mankind. There will never be another episode of Prophets coming down and God destroying those who did not accept his Message (etc, etc). What will happen is; we will hear the trumpets on the final day and yes Jesus Christ will descend from the Heavens BUT in the Name of Islam. Are you and I ready for that day?

Once again these are my personal comments, thank you.
