Mr. Harrack,

You have just let the cat out of the bag. Thank you!

Your point of using the Old Testament is excellent. By subscribing to It, we will not turn the other cheek, and "God's wrath will smite down the enemies of His children [or enemies of the Children of Israel]." This just goes to show how little you/Muslims understand about our stance today. We have been subscribing to The New Testament, Jesus' teachings of "love thy neighbour" and "turn the other cheek" which works with intelligent humans. And it makes perfect sense not to bring a knife to a gunfight. Of course, we can always come back to the New Testament when we have peace.

Most Christians don't fully understand Islam and are thus vulnerable to believing that there is good in everything. (But is there any good in Satan?) However, Christians along with all other non-Muslims are coming to a realisation/conclusion, which is based on more than 1300 years of Muslim actions, that Muslims despise everything about our beliefs love and peace, our good deeds and our SUCCESS. Keep in mind, the success of the West is based on its sound belief that every man/woman can ascend to a higher level of happiness through hard work and good deeds - and responsibility is our rock. We believe in diversity and freedom of choice, Muslims detest it. We believe in forgiveness, yet this is an alien concept to Islam [Dhimmitude, excluding].

We believe in forthrightness (honesty), and yet your teachers tell you to lie if it furthers Islam's position – i.e. kill more non-Muslims or extend Dhimmitude to other lands. We are clearly on opposite poles of difference, and once non-Muslims realise this fact - provided they aren't guilt-tripped into blindness and/or Dhimmitude – there will be growing support for the declassification Islam as a religion. Simply, a religion is about "do good unto other." This will then enable more clarity of purpose for the peaceful peoples of this world, and they will all unite to define Islam as nothing more than a Cult.

And for anyone who thinks that Islam has something positive to offer, look at the failed results that following the Koran has resulted for Islamic countries:
- they are failed nations, economically - i.e. Indonesia, Pakistan, Middle East, North Afica. Oil resources have made a big difference but even with all this wealth, which ends up in the coffers of just a few families/rulers, Muslim countries still do not do great good for others, except where it enable Islamic conquest or Dhimmis.
- these Islamic nations are not tolerant to diversity - Muslim countries have double standards for Muslims and non-Muslims within their realm; Christian, Jew, Hindus and Buddhists are regularly killed and/or terrorised by Muslim, yet other Muslims do not condemn these actions.
- they radicalized their children - brainwashing tiny children to become terrorists and suicide bombers is not something to be proud of, is it? Harrack, Amir?
- Muslims do not have freedom to chose their religion, for any good Muslim is directed to kill a Muslim who changes his religion. So, Harrack, Amir, you don't have choice in your life, even if we prove to you that we have something wonderful to offer. Like Gabriel Grosso said, there is little/no point in "discourse" with you.

In conclusion, how can Muslims like you (Harrack) even comment on our world when you obviously are so limited in your understanding of it - watching American movies wont show our steel. And while were using the Bible to educate, here is another wise statement by Jesus Christ [yes, the same Jesus that Mohammad claimed was a liar] who said, "a man can see a tiny speck of dirt in the eye of another, yet he cannot see an entire wooden plank in his own eye." Simply, Muslims must look inwardly at Islam itself to find the problem before any solution will ever be possible.
