okay I'm really confused... the website your'e reffering to is not an Islamic comic but is instead a website made by people who have dedicated their lives to degrade Islam for no obvious reason. They do this by taking verses from the Quran and using them totally out of context where they do not even apply.

Seriously, how can you understand something if you if you only pinpoint all the bad aspects and delibrately close your mind to everything that is good? Is that really a good way to learn about something.

And Miss Janet Ann, how could you say that "there are no such thing as "moderate" Islam" (and I'm not talking about the English and grammar lol) but what are you impying? That Muslims are not humans? That they not capable of loving and being loved? That does not make sense to me because if that was the case, Islam would not have survived this long and flourished so much.

It is not right either that Islam was spread through the sword, if you ask any scholar or any professor, you will know that the Muslims never forced anyone to accept Islam... this explains the fact that there are still a large number non muslim minorities living in many Muslim countries. Most Jews living in the Byzintine Empire were happy when the Muslims came as the Byzintinians could not offer the religious liberty and freedom that the Muslims did.

Also why doesn't anyone look at any of the good stuff in Islam? Did anyone know that the renaissance started in the west because of the Muslim efforts in education? The violence and Jihad only apply when you are opressed and it is only against the opressor. In other words if someone kills someone else, he himself is to be punished. Not his family or his relatives! No one innocent should suffer. Therefore whatever Bin Laden did was very wrong. And it is totally wrong to assume that all Muslims are like that. There are good and bad people everywhere.

And seriously Janet where is that comic of yours? Do you even have a comic? Or were you just joking? cuz I dont get it... plz explain. Oh! okay nevermind... apparently the website changed and the new website does not have the comic book. But look at the title: Mohammed's Believe It or Else! would any Muslim make a book like that? And would parents actually give a book like this their 10 yr old son? You just made up that story didn't you? I bet so many people figured this out long before me cuz there's smarter people out there lol.
