OK Hind Samy, which is "your country"? Without knowing which country you are talking about how can any of us comment. But you may well be right. Even Iraq has practicing Christians (Assyrians). You have to agree though, that there are countries under Islamic law where Christianity or any other religion other than Islam is not tolerated. (Saudi Arabia for one)

Your country is predominantly muslim (30%,40%,50%,60% ???), yet the richest and most powerful man is a Christian. So what you're saying is your country is not one of those countries that persecutes other religions. Great! bully for you, your country is not totalitarian and probably democratic. I'm unclear of your point here.

"Many Muslim countries are poor as a couple of posters here love to make fun of this sad fact. I never knew being poor was a sin - being a Christian I'm sure you'd agree - being poor isn't a crime"

What point are you trying to make? Are you suggesting that being poor is an excuse for the mayhem we have seen over the last few months?

"I am Muslim and I call on Muslims to stop attacking the Danish people".

"If you would just take the time to see what our Prophet (pbuh) taught us about religious tolerance and learn a bit about Islamic history, you would see that Islam never encouraged violence against anyone for having a different religion. "

This is great and I salute you for saying it, but unfortunately your religion has been hijacked by a bunch of fundamentalist nutters. Until you claim back your "beautiful" religion and start regulating from within there will be no progress forward. Muslims are going to have to deal with this themselves.

So are you going to start the Islamic reformation required to project your vision of peace and understanding?
