dear Anwar,

yet again we talk...

i can see that you are very angry with muslims, from your name I guess that you are a Christian from an Arab country? Remember that most so called religious strife has a political/economic basis. Jews property was sold to christians in Austria and germany and wherever the nazis went, jews were made to serve the economic needs of the nazis, even down to the gold in their teeth. Ok the regime was some pagan/christian cult mix, but most nazis were christians despite the official state religion. Should Jews hate christians for the litany of outrages. No.

The phooey that goes around about muslims marrying christians is a load of rubbish. nothing specificaly prohibits women from marrying non-muslims. read the verses in question and do some research. The prohibtion is a traditional legal opinion (ie fallible words of men) that is linked to the contexts in which it was developed. Islamic law is not static and our manifestations of it will never match the perfection God wants of us. Scholars back me up on this, this is not just my opinion. Women may marry people of other faiths. this is not just limited to Ahl Al Kitab.

You are not called Kaffirs, swine or disbelievers. read the qur'an properly, and stop imposing your own hatred/ignorance on it. see other posts of mine on these topics.

How can you defend a city that you have under siege and when you conquer it spil the blood of the people you have just "liberated" of all faiths (including christian)? this stuff is silly anyway, the actions of people who do wrong are not exapmles for us to follow, no matter what faith. So if crusaders did good, then good, if they did eveil then Allah will judge them for it, same goes for Muslims. Lets start living in the 21st century, if you want to justify your hatred and unwillingness to reconcile of the bad actions of previous people, then all that will ever happen is more of the same.

When I was growing up, we called Japanese people Japs, they were people to hate for trying to invade our country, the only good thing they could do was get killed in our childhood games. Now we have close ties with Japan, culturaly, economicaly etc...More young people are learning their language than almost any other foreign language. The only people who can't forgive the Japanese now are the men who actually fought them in some of the bitterest fighting of WWII except that on the Eastern Front and who were nearly killed in their concentration camps, an opinion they are entitled to hold, but they are a small minority now, all but died out. Do you get what I am saying?
