Plato, you reminded MM, : "Moderate Muslim referring to the Beslan school massacre you say: "... Nothing could make me more angry. Nothing. Because nothing could make Islam look worse. than that. It is so sad and horrible. To think about how they died, it is so sad."

Nothing could make Islam look worse? What about the massacre of the Banu Quraiza Jews?And disposing off their women and children in the slave markets, does it make you sad as the Besalan massacre did? What about the blood-letting by Khalid bin Walid, a companion of the Prophet? What about Taimur, another Sword of Islam? What about Gazni and Ghori? Does reading about the massacres of the Prophet, his companions and his followers make you elated? When you read in the Sira and hadith about the prophet ordering the chopping off of hands and legs, blinding and leaving some murderers to die of thirst and heat, does it make your stomach bring up whatever you have eaten? (Bukhari Vol 1, Book 4 No. 234)."

Plato, it's good to remind Muslims, specially those who call themselves Moderate Muslims and shed crocodile tears at Beslan massacre of innocent non-Muslim children, what their ancestors starting with Muhammad did to the world. Genocide of non-Muslims is their most favorite game - still continuing in Darfur, Sudan. Years from now these genocides will be described by Muslims as "just" in the cause of allah as they have done describing all the other gencides from 650AD onwards.

How can one forget killing of 80 to 100 million Hindus and Buddhidts of India starting with the invasion by bin Kassim and continuing with Gazni, Ghori, Lodi, and Mughal kings. They desecrated, demolished Hindu and Buddhists holy temples and built mosques over them. The present day Muslims are no different - their thinking is same as it was in 7th century, and they are doing this in many parts of the Muslim countries even today such as in Pakistan, Afganistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, etc, and will repeat all those "crimes" their ancestors committed without any hesitation in a nanosecond today and in future!!! No doubt about that!!! That's their leagcy!! How can they deviate fro such "holy" path.

Plato, you ask Moderate Muslim: "Your plea to Allah: "may he show his creation their similarities, and show them how to live hand in hand in peace" will be ignored as Allah himself encourages his followers to go after the despised infidels in his Koran time and again. Allah wants his followers to subdue unbelievers and make them pay a poll tax in humility. Allah also admonishes the Prophet for taking prisoners in Badr instead of going for a general slaughter (8:67). Allah showing humanity how to live hand in hand in peace? Give us a break.

Read 9:23, 9:29, 8:65, 8:12, 9:05,3:151, 2:161, 4:74 to get a feel of the kind of peace that Allah was interested in."

You are right!! This comment really reveals the hypocrisy practiced by Muslims so clearly. They practice what is written in Quran and then they ask their allah to "show his creation their similarities, and show them to live hand in hand in peace". As only Muslims are not interested in living in peace with anybody, Moderate Muslim should ask allah to guide his fellow Muslims to follow what he wrote here!!! The rest of us don't need such hypocritical guidance from anybody. Any human being following his conscience and brain(i. e., assuming he is not brain washed and brain dead) will distinguish between right and wrong.

Enjoyed reading your post!!!
