I am so taken by the Shah's logic, that I'm compelled to respond.

1. No mankind is allowed to change a single verse of Qur'aan.
Well, I've 3 different Qur'ans in my library at home; The Qur'an by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Glorious Qur'an by Dr. Syed Vickar Ahamed, and The Koran by J.M. Rodwell, and there are many differences between the Ayas. 2. No humankind is allowed to be killed in Islam. Absolutely, Space Aliens must be responsible for the killings listed below. SEPT 11, 2001, killed nearly 3000 APR 11 2002: Twenty one people, including 18 German tourists, killed when an ancient synagogue was bombed in Tunis. OCT 12 2002: A bomb in a Bali nightclub killed 202 people, mostly Australians.
NOV 28 2002: Sixteen dead, including three bombers, at the Israeli Paradise Hotel in Mombassa, Kenya. Two missiles missed an Israeli plane carrying 200 people. MAY 12 2003: Suicide bombers hit three compounds for foreign workers in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The 34 dead included nine attackers. MAY 16 2003: Fourteen suicide bombers attacked four targets in the Moroccan capital Casablanca. Forty one people were killed. AUG 5 2003: Twelve killed by car bomb outside Marriott Hotel in Indonesian capital Jakarta. NOV 8 2003: Housing complex in Riyadh attacked by suicide car bomb. Seventeen dead, 100 hurt. NOV 15 2003: Two synagogues in Istanbul attacked, killing 23 and wounding at least 300. NOV 20 2003: Attacks on British Consulate and HSBC bank in Istanbul killed 27 and injured more than 450. Among the dead was Consul-General Roger Scott. MAR 11 2004: In Madrid, TEN bombs remotely detonated on four trains in the rush hour killed 191 commuters and wounded 2,000. MAY 29 2004: Gunmen stormed residential buildings for foreign workers in Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Twenty two workers killed. OCT 7 2004: At least 40 people killed when three suicide bombings hit resorts on Egypt's Red Sea coast. At the Taba Hilton, a huge car bomb killed at least 30 people.

No doubt, Allah is the only one who has right to give and take life, and he rewards his volunteer killers with "houris in heaven". Come on Shah, are you not tired of spewing lies about how peaceful your religion is? And, furthermore, who appointed you as spokesman for Allah and Muhammad?

When I wanted to understand Islam, I didn't search for Islamic apologists, I read the Qur'an all 3 translations and I read the Hadiths, all 93 chapters. Why do you think that we will ignore the facts and listen to YOU? No religion is responsible for more murders than Islam, yet you keep insisting that it's a religion of peace. No religion is more intolerant than Islam and no religion demands the tolerance of others more than Islam.

Don't you ever listen to Radio and Television broadcasts from Muslim countries and hear what they have to say about Christians, Infidels and Jews? Listen, I have to say this and I know it's going to shock you, BUT YOU'RE NOT FOOLING US; we read, watch TV and listen to radios. It's our foolish Governments of "Political Correctness", that accept you lies and cause us to tolerate your murders and lies, BUT, the times, they are a changing, and when Europe retaliates, the entire Middle East will be awash in blood.
