Syed, if America and Israel are truly so vile, and if Islam is so perfect and Muslims the greatest and noblest people on earth, why do the Muslims fight like cowards? Why do they blow up innocent, unarmed civilians instead of confronting the American and Israeli military? Why do they hide their faces in shame when they cut off the heads of unarmed, kidnapped, innocent women and journalists? Why do they hide in civilian clothing and cower behind their own women and children when "fighting" the "Great Satan" instead of proudly wearing an identifiable uniform like all reputable, honorable militaries world-wide?

Even the vile Nazis had more courage, more integrity, more honor than Muslims. That's saying something!

So how about explaining to us why your people are so cowardly, dishonorable, and vile?

And while we're at it, if Islam is such a wonderful paradise, why then will Muslims do anything for Islam (including murdering, raping, and maiming innocent, unarmed women and children), except live in Islamic countries? Why do they move to America, Israel, the UK? If the USA is the Great Satan, and Israel the Little Satan, why then do so many Muslims emigrate and suckle at the teats of the Satans?

Are you man enough to give us an honest answer?
