Nuray, you're right. There's cureless habit of seeing others inferior

Nuray,

You're right about how the muslims tend to see others being inferiors. We hope that muslims can play down the hate verses about calling non-believers - infidels and residents of hell-fire. We also hope that your imans stop preaching hate sermons and calling Jews and others decendants of apes and pigs.

If I were to consider myself superior, I would have sing praises about my religion and talk down on others. That's not it. I'm merely asking questions about Islam and you're answering them. Perhaps, you have misunderstood me from other webloggers that are confronting you.

When I asked you about Paradise, all you mentioned in your first answer to me were all about fine clothes, jewelry, food, wine and sex. You are then one that wrote about houris for men and none for women.

That's the reason, why I asked you why Allah and your Muhammed only promise carnal pleasures that appeal to the animal instincts in men?

You did not bring up these verses until I probe further. Let me understand this. Most muslims are attracted to the carnal rewards. That's why, you introduced them first. Only when asked further on why muslims, as you did, talked only about animal pleasures, then only you introduced the friendship with Allah that's also in the pipeline. How come, you never talked about this 'friendship with Allah' in your first reply to me? Why did you introduced only animal pleasures?

It's your mindset that's the problem. I merely asked questions.
