Gs - that article. A nice little lullaby to sing us to sleep. Take Tahloube's advice - read the Koran, (and the Hadith, and the Sira) and see how much peace for the infidel you can find. Also, visit islamic websites and see what they say about the filthy kufar (that's you and me, boy) on the forums. You will find much on which to hone your Buddhist tolerance. btw CAIR is associated with terrorism - several officials have been prosecuted, yet they continue their propaganda. Don't belive it.
To the contrary, the article speaks volumes of why reaction of people in the US differs from some of those in the ME or Europe... The more freedom you give to people, the more civilised they'll behave. No bitterness to ignite riot and no goverment hands behind vandalism. Obviously, GermanStar doesn't share your biased, if not racist, ideas.
Had you read the Quraan, you would've known that God promises infidels severe punishment in the Afterlife, not by Muslims in this life. Although Muslims are asked to defend themselves against agressors which is only logical.
[Fight in the Way of God against those who fight you, but do not go beyond the limits. God does not love those who go beyond the limits.] (Surat Al-Baqarah 2:190)
Do some reading, jjl, or give those who want to read/did actually read a break.
I see you want to silence me, Muslimah. You are the brainwash victim, parading your vicious dogma for all to see, not I. Go read a little yourself. Perhaps you would like to start with The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
I see you accuse me of 'racism'. What has race to do with Islam (or Christianity for that matter)? The are Nordic Muslims, Chinese Muslims, African Muslims, hell there may even be Australian Aboriginal Muslims for all I know. The 'racism' canard is a rhetorical device routinely employed by Muslims when they are called on the anti-human aspects of the IDEOLOGY that is Islam, to silence opposition. Anyone with half a brain can see through this nasty little trick.
As I said before. I've read the Koran and much of the other scripture. Recently, the eyes of many in the non-muslim world have been opened as to the nature of Islam - the inherent violence, the misogyny, the mind-numbing ignorance and hostility, and currently, the grave threat to civilization.
Don't believe Tahloube when she says that Infidels (by the way, that is offensive to non-Muslims, Tahloube) will be punished by god in the afterlife. Islamic scripture is packed full of exhortations for Muslims to punish non-Muslims in this life. This is the central reason why so many terrorist organizations manage to quote scripture so easily to justify their barbarity. Read the Hamas charter for an example.
Finally, all you 'what about the bad things in the OT' guys - please, go read the damn books and acquire an informed opinion, and stop trying to develop an understanding by osmosis, or toeing the PC line.
