Nabil, you've got a BIG problem!

Reader comment on item: [Naveed Haq and] "Sudden Jihad Syndrome" in Seattle
in response to reader comment: To Moshe again

Nabil, I am reading carefully your last comment, and trying to make some sense out of it. In some places you are describing the murderous practices of your fellow Muslims:

" I can tell you righ here, right now that 2-3 million of my people, mostly fellow Muslims like myself, were slaughtered in the name of Islam by the Pakistani armed forces and their "Islamic" fundamentalist, extremist backers among my own people."

"What you don't seem to realize, Moshe, is that there is a war within Islam going on, and has been for the last 100 years or so."

But nevertheless, you claim that:

"Just because many Muslims have "corrupted" the religion of Islam by violating its most sacred commandments and principles doesn't make Islam a bad religion"

Well, this is basically in agreement with my constant argument that the problem is the barbarian and inhuman practices of your fellow Muslims, and this sheds the light under which the rest of the world views the Islam.

In still other places you are explaining to me that it is impossible for you to argue with your fellow Muslims because of the personal dangers to which you would expose yourself:

"I would probably be barred from entering my mosque if its leaders found out about my views..."

"Do you know why I can't talk to the Muslim fanatics out there, Moshe? Because they don't want to talk...they just want to kill."

But nevertheless:

"I have been arguing for nearly TWO DECADES with fellow Muslims with regard to religion. Do I need to go back in time and videotape all of my encounters and then show them to you in order to prove myself here?"

Nabil, if you indeed already did this before, just keep on arguing with your fellow Muslims and don't waste you time on non-believers of my kind.

As I already tried to explain this to you before, this is the worst possible time for you to try to convince non-believers what a "great and peaceful religion Islam is". On the background of the inhuman atrocities committed daily by your brothers in faith, this is outright disgusting.
