We would all get along better with muslims if more of them would openly denounce the actions of the muslim terrorists. Their silence gives us the impression they agree with them.

1- Our founding fathers had favorable views toward Islam
==> Really? Evidence?
2- Thomas Jefferson studied the Qur’an
==> It is wise to know one’s enemy.
3- The Obama administration believes that understanding Islam is key to improving the U.S.’s international image
==> Obama needs to be politically correct.
4- Islam has deep roots in America
==> Too bad we can’t just keep the ‘roots’ in the ground.
5- Islam and Western civilization cannot be defined apart from one another
==> Right. You can’t have a North Pole with out a South Pole.
Nor can you detect a Negative Charge with out a Positive Charge.

it is also the constant need to defend and to rally on behalf of terrorists who are in the news which lead us to believe they are in favor of their actions.

But like all Muslim discoveries, they never let anyone know until someone else discovered it.

Why do you suppose that it?

I think the answer is obvious. Muslims believe lying to make their religion look good is justified.

Or maybe, as a Muslim, you automatically believe any pro-Islamic statement, no matter how ridicules it is.

Look up the Muslim concept of Taqiyya on Wikipedia. It is their duty to lie to save themselves or to further the cause of their religion. This is something every judge in the Western world should know.

When you denounce - they refer to wikipedia and call you a liar
When you explain - they accuse you of making it up
When an outrage happens against Muslims - you are all silent

Don't be surprised that people are silent. Silence does not mean approval. But debating with idiots and old goats is a waste of time.

You know there are men who stare at goats.

They sire can't, after the Ottoman empire almost single handedly destroyed the areas they conquered, brutalized and killed. Don't believe me? Type into Google the following words: "Armenian & Greek Genocide by Turkish Muslims against Christians". Over two million Christians were made to march about 800 Kilometres out of turkey and were killed, tortured, starved, etc... have a look for yourself. And this is only a tiny part of the destruction and attrocities these Muslims did during their brutal rule that lasted over 500 years in many countries. Do oyu dare to look at this histrical information and photos? Let me know what you think....

to tie the malay race to islam and islam to politics is not peaceful it is bondage and an eternal bondage of hell for those who cannot exercise freewill to choose his/her religion since apostasy laws will do that in just the same. that is evil, nothing peaceful about it.

alter ego bmz will be most upset for the paki and indian muslims in malaysia especially when all the indian muslim mosques are being wiped out.
