The full retreat of Sword

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Why killing a peace activist ?

I see "Sword" has been a bit speechless for a while - that's new - probably due to the excellent responses by Sarah, Another One, Annonymous, Sally, Wild, Wild West and others here. I raise my proverbial hat to you all - God bless each and every one of you. Sarah, I just love reading your posts, you go girl! *grin*.

It's funny to notice the majority of Muslims on this board have the patience of Job when answering hateful comments whereas most of the "peace loving" Westerners seem to be twisting facts and being sometimes downright rude in an attempt to test people beyond the limits of patience.

This debate is rather like convincing someone who hasn't seen a movie but who is relying on the reviews of others that it isn't worth watching. The people attacking Islam here are like that person who hasn't seen the film and is only regurgitating other's views and opinions of it - my advice to them would be - see the movie first, make your own opinion of it then come and discuss. Before you attack something, try to learn more about it so you have a proper foundation on which to base your arguments, you just might be surprised.
