TaJ Ashaheed, from your writings I could see that you have high education, all what I am saying is that do not take what islam taught about the bibles, do not take for granted that the bibles are corrupted, all what I am asking is just research for your self before making such judgment.

I don't know about Islam from CNN, I have been researching it for at least 20 years, I was taught Quran from trusted sources in its original language (Arabic) I read 100's of hadith, Sira't alrasool, fiqh, tafseer, etc. I say with humility that I may know about islam more than majority of muslims.

Again, Taj, harrak and Tariq, all what I am asking is to open your books, read in an open mind, do not try to make excuses for killing... Put yourself in the shoes of the other people and see the unjustice Islam brought to others. do not think that being clean is washing yourself, cleanless is from within, a woman who has her period is also clean and can touch a holy book and can pray. free yourself from these limited boundaries, don't you think that GOD will accept us in any shape we are when we sincerely pray to him?

I have high sympathy to muslims today who are suffering in Iraq, Palastine, Afganistan, and all over the world. If I want to follow the law of Islam or the justification of Banu Quriazeh massacre explianed by Taj and Tariq, then I will only feel sorry for my people, but the law of grace brought by Jesus taught me to respect humanity regardless of origin or faith, taught me to work for the peace of the world not only for my own people.

My final comment is why do you blame America on attacking Iraq? what Bush is doing today is maybe similar to what the leader of Islam did when was in power. Don't you agree that America action is a respond to the terrorists attacks?. However, Christianity point of view on this is that "violence can not be solved by violence", what happened 1400 is wrong and what is happening today to muslims is wrong and can not be justified. Crusaders although were politically right (according to islam standards), are also wrong and thier actions can not be justified by any verse in the bible or the law of grace.

Peace be with you
