in response to reader comment: I believe you

Dear Zionist,

I guess it's better that we are speaking in more civil tones. Thank you for believing me because many people doubt the sincerety of muslims. I do have to agree with you that the Arabic CULTURE does treat women in a horrible manner, but don't be mistaken that all arab countries are that way or that the religion of Islam approves of this.

Being a female, I thank god that I don't come from a country with that mentality, I come from Libya. Yet I have something to point out, nobody has ever told us to kill anyone, but being raised in a muslim household, you see the other side of the story. I mean I have many Palestinian friends who have fled their homes in fear of being killed by the Israeli army. I f someone told you such atrocious stories, wouldn't you want to help those in need? As for the suicide bombers, they are only trying to defend their country. Just put yourself in their place. what would you have done? would you have stayed quiet as you saw your friends and loved one's being killed? ask yourself that question.

Now I come to the important question. The one that everyone asks which is the" kiling all infidels" This translation of the verse from quran is taken out of context. what this verse really means, is to kill infidels when youre at war. not some innocent ones, shopping. I mean if that was the case than Prophet Muhammed(PBUH) would have slaughtered all the pagans in yathrib and mecca. But he didn't.

Hope you have a nice day.
