I want to tell you that this war never end until the occupation end and the killing the inncents (what ever the killer) end also
My missiles, my planes?....I am Canadian, but regardless of that nobody is forcing Muslims to commit acts of terror, especially against fellow Muslims. By defending or attempting to shift the blame for these atrocities, you put yourself squarely on the side of these butchers. Is that what you want?

You are correct that Christians in the long ago past have done their share, but so has Islam. The difference is that Christianity has moved on and no longer do such things, whereas Islam is still stuck in the dark age and revenge oriented mentality.

I think it depend on the Muslim that is practicing it. I have a friend that is Muslim and He is peaceful and loving. So, I don't associate Him with terrorist. But if you turn that around and meet Muslims that believe in blowing themselves up, well that is a different story.

I don't believe in the religion of Islam, but I do know the difference in someone who is peaceful and someone who is not. I love my friend dearly and I am Christian. He is nothing like the ones who kill in the name of allah.

There where times that I forgot that He was even Muslim because He is very humble and friendly.

So, it depends on the Muslim that is practicing Islam if they are peaceful or not.

Yes, there are knuckleheads within Christianity.

Our religion though, does not guarantee paradise with 72 virgins for someone that dies in the act of terrorism.

I agree, but I did not say that all Muslims are terrorists, but there is something wrong with a religion that has killed 11 million of their own since 1948....I have no idea how many they have killed that were not of the Islamic faith, but I'm sure those numbers are also high.

As far as I'm concerned these things are not only indefensible, but should be severely condemned.

In an illuminating collection of essays entitled Islam's Predicament: Perspectives of a Dissident Muslim, he maintains Islam is afflicted with "a terrible malady," which "reflects the irreparable breakdown of the civilization's centre . . . which at one time in history was co-equal, if not briefly superior, to Christendom."

You deny that Muslims have killed 11 million of their own? Exactly what crimes committed by Christians and Jews are you talking about? Do you mean that Israel won't just sit back and take it when Palestine sends rockets and suicide bombers into Israel?

Did you know that what you call the land of the Muslims was previously occupied by Christians? All of it. In the 1st century BC, the expanding Roman Republic absorbed the whole Eastern Mediterranean area. As the Christian religion spread throughout the Empire it took root in the Middle East and cities such as Alexandria became important centers of Christian scholarship. By the 5th century, Roman Christianity was the dominant religion in the Middle East.

Islam hadn't even been invented yet.
