It is not easy to be the devil's advocate. I can feel and understand your desperation with what your Muslim brothers are doing to your religion. For that I do not have to study Islam as you are suggesting. Suffice to see how large sectors of your coreligionists, who have studied Islam, are interpreting it and applying it on us.

I think that you indeed have every reason to be worried about how the world is regarding Islam, because as you most probably understand, the punishment for the atrocities perpetrated in the name of the Islam is on its way. It will be very harsh, and many non-participant Muslims will have to suffer along with their criminal terrorist brothers.

You are wrong when you try to compare the crimes perpetrated by the Ku Klux Clan and a few other criminals with those of the Islamist terrorists. The Ku Klux Clan is a small, weird, and unpopular sect in hiding, and is tolerated only as long as they confine themselves to legal activities. They are widely condemned by the public, and if they commit any crimes they are treated for their hate crimes even more harshly than plain criminals. Their crimes are certainly not celebrated publicly by wide masses, and not regarded openly as heroes as the Islamist terrorists are among the Muslims. Just have a look at the almost unanimous condemnation even by official Arab authorities, of the execution of a notorious criminal like Sadam Hussein. Look how they publicly mourn his death, and vow revenge.

In any case, Ahmad Tariq, you must be aware that the real threat against you religion is coming from the Islamist terror organizations, their supporters, and their apologists, and only from them. We, the rest of the world, are only the victims, who eventually will come to our senses and wipe out this curse from our midst.

If you indeed wish to do something of help, try to direct your efforts and energy to stopping and fighting this insane Jihadic Islamist ideology, which is dragging the whole Islamic world to an imminent catastrophe. Do anything you can to stop them, before it's too late!

Don't waste your energy on us!

Have a nice and peaceful Id el Adha!
