in response to reader comment: Ahmed your contrition is insincere

Vasco de Gama, you ask very pertinent questions to Muslims: "The current travesties perpetuated by radical islamists has become the scourge of the 21st century. Why the indifference by the Muslim ummah to, for example, the atrocities of Sudan's orchestrated genocide, Somalia's spiral into total anarchy, the ever spiralling blood-letting of Sunni on Shi'a and on others . The butchery of indegenous Hindus in Indian kashmir simply because your brethern should not suffer the indignity of living in a democratic, secular, pluralist society goverened by the rule of law.-WHY?"

Great post, great questions!!! However, Muslims cannot answer these truthfully. All you will get is the usual heave ho and nonsense about non-Muslims not understanding their religion. In these days, do they honestly believe ( I said believe and not think because they cannot think) that we don't understand what is written in Quran. At least that's what they hope against their hope. And if the non-Muslims tell the truth about Islam, they are immediately branded racists, islamophobes etc, etc.

Atrocities of genocide being carried out by Sudanese government is not being condemned by any Muslim nation in the world, as if those citizens of Darfur region have no right to live. If these nations are not taking any action to save the life of fellow human beings (Perhaps fellow Muslims, although of a different color) because teachings of Quran prevents them to speak out against fellow Muslims nation, then we know the value of those religious teachings. You raise valid questions about what is happening in Somalia, Iraq, Kashmir, Afganistan, Pakistan, etc wherever Muslims are following teachings of Quran.

Vasco, you appear to be a Muslim but you don't seem to follow blindly the mullahs and imams. Wish there were more Muslims like you, then perhaps Muslims can end this barbarism going on for last 1400 years!!!
