Dear Infidel,

first of all, i don't see you as an infidel. I'm guessing you are what true muslims refer to as a person of the Book; ie, a christian or a jew. If not, i still respect you. Like you i can't wait for the day when those crazy extremists die off and leave the rest of us to practise our respective religions in peace. I love living in the UK. I love the freedom i have here, the freedom to think as i please, the freedom to argue or to agree. Unfortunately, at this stage in our history none of those things are available in most muslim countries. As a muslim it pains me to admit this.

Heres a joke (which is all too real) that i saw in the satirical magazine Punch: 1st muslim:"did you hear the Pope saying that muslims are violent by nature?" 2nd muslim:" yeah, thats terrible, let's kill him!" That would be funny if it weren't true.

regards and peace, Raheel
