Hello Nabil! I hope that I did help after all. :)

Nabil, it looks like finally we are converging on some issues. I must admit that I can accept most of your last posting. I hope that you realize now that our dispute is not over who's religion is more correct. It would be indeed a futile and nonproductive argument of deaf people.

I certainly can understand and accept your faith in Islam, and your despair in face of what your brothers in faith are doing to it. What I am objecting are the attempts to prove to us, and in particular now, that Islam is not worse than other religions, especially on the background of the presently raging worldwide Islamic revolution. You see, as I proposed earlier, the problem is not necessarily the religion per se; the problem is what people are doing with their religion, what they learn from it, and how they implement their learning. And as it looks now, with the exception of a very small minority, most Muslims align themselves behind a Jihadist Islamic agenda, with the unveiled objective to take over the world.

My friendly advice to you is to stop arguing with people who criticize Islam on this background. Don't try to show us that in the past neither Christianity, nor Judaism were better. The issue is not the past; it is here, now and today! Islamist terrorists are ruthlessly attacking non-Muslims all around the world in the name of their faith, and the rest of the Muslim brothers are forwarding their Jihadist agenda by so called "peaceful" means like terror apologetics, "persuasion" to convert, or at least to recognize Islam as a peaceful religion, etc. This is what all the Ahmad Zafires, Saladins, Sohails, et al are doing anyway.

As a learned and intelligent person as you seem to be, you should know better than that.
