Number one thing is... let me tell you something...new comer!!. I've been on this forum for a good while now and may have or not seen you here before but anyway. You must not have been here too long cause if you did you would already come to the conclusion or knew that i am not a terrorist or hope not according to my profession as a United States Soldier (some may say i'm in the same ball park...matter of opionion). Second i dont ever mean to bash other faiths from G-d but to only point out issue in all including islam.

So before you go on, think about what you say and read the article correct. Thats one of the reasons why the world is as it is today. miscommunication!!!!"


I have been around here for many months....so before you start talking about miscommunication you ought to check you know what you're talking about. I've had a break of a few weeks because my life doesn't revolve around arguing the toss with people who don't understand the concept of debate.

Secondly I don't give a toss who you are or what you are, the fact remains muslims are killing muslims at a higher rate than anyone else in Iraq.

You obviously got upset about my last sentence. "You kill you own people, but as usual you point the finger at others instead of at your own !!!!!!" That was a broad statement aimed at the muslim contingent in general. Bearing in mind your profession, I would find it very difficult to believe that you don't agree with what I said. Just substitute 'you' with 'muslims'. If you still feel that it is a personal attack on you then you have to change the public perception of followers of Islam.

However, regardless of who or what you are, fundamentalist islam is far more powerful than your peaceful Islam and will only increase in power because the 'moderates' either haven't got the the gumption to stand up to them or they secretly support them. So which is it?

To be brutally honest I am angry. Angry that the western leaders have let it get to this state, being held to ransom by idiots. Angry that the muslim community have let it get to this state, turning a blind eye. If the muslim community won't address the issue then it's up to the western governments to sort it out. If the latter then it won't be pleasant in any western country for ANY muslim. It's not what I want but I admit I'm beginning to care less and less if that's what ends up happening. At least then my family will be safer.

People like you have to stop the rot.
