What you call my 'strange theories' are easily found, especially since you have the internet. Of course, certain countries don't allow their citizens full access on the internet. The quotes and facts I listed were from reputable websites and not some anti-Muslim sites. Yes, I used the term 'thief'. That was my interpretation of what he was doing. We call that stealing or looting in my country when you take peoples belongings without consent. Are you telling me that you've never heard of these occurrences related to your prophet? I believe the word given in the article was 'ghazawāt'. Even your Qur'an contains the stories which show the way Mohammed dealt with others, things much worse than stealing. My view is that our country is currently dealing with those whose mindsets are straight from the Qur'an, which aren't as peaceful as portrayed on this board.

I'm glad you live side by side in peace with one another. Unfortunately, that's not what we're dealing with in the West. We're living with Muslims who aren't happy just living side by side in peace with us. The anti-American sentiment has been thrown right in our faces by the events of 9/11, making it impossible to stand by idly. Some (even some Democrats from our own country) believe we deserved it due to all the 'evils' we do in the world, just read the posts on this board-- most recently by a poster called Extremely Innocent. These types could be found dancing in the streets when we were attacked, taking pleasure in our pain. Even you yourself called us aggressive and cruel. That's the attitude a passive or oppressed person takes towards someone who has a backbone and the ability to take action against such attacks. By the way, you're the one calling your own people uncivilized, uneducated creatures. Not my words. It sounds like your government is probably failing your country and should be voted out of office.

Hopefully, you have the right to vote in a fair election, not an election such as Saddam Hussein would hold.

I wish you and yours well.
