You are right about the fact that there are good and bad people in every religion including Islam. That is why I was drawn to study Islam after Sept 11. I want to know more about the muslims that have driven themselves to kill innocents on the World Trade Centre. Yes, muslims claimed that their people have been persecuted by the "West".

As I delved deeper, I realised that the bad people in Islam are the true believers of Muhammed. I have come to learn that the self-proclaimed prophet ordered the murders of critics, raped young women (he called in marriage), tortured people for money and raided trade caravans. He made laws such as "4 eyewitnesses to a rape trial", ordered the killing of deserters or apostates. He even made up a divine law so that he can marry his daughter-in-law. He raped a 9 year old girl called Ayesah. He cursed a lot, especially towards the Jews. Such a vulgar, crude and evil man.

The other muslims, such as yourself, have been evolved to hear the pleasant sound bites of Islam that you're too lazy or too scared to understand the real Islam. You just continue to believe that if you bow in this direction, eat at a particular time and fast at other time, chant prayers, you will have salvation at the end. Extra points if you kill infidels. For you as a muslimah, your reward in Paradise is to be with your husband for eternity, if you do not end up in Hell as most women do. Your husband, on the other hand may have up to 72 perpetual virgins with him. Hopefully, he'll remember you one of the days in eternity.
