It make me sure that part of DEutschman ,supporting the satanic verses of Salman Rusdi and protect him to divide Islam as a World Religion. Maybe it a shape of jealous of the progressive of Islam compare with the other religion and Islam as a religion that can be accountable its learning for the life inthe world and the end of life.

It is not insulting to reveal the truth about islam. It would be dishonest to let muslims believe in a lie. Muhammad could not tell whether it was god or satan speaking to him. If he cannot tell the difference between god and saatan how can he tell the difference between good and evil?

Why do you want to abide by the UN when muslim countries do not abide by nor have they signed the UN Human Rights Act.
Islam. The religion for cherry pickers.

Would you like to see blasphemy laws put in place in countries in the west?

well, if they were, the quran would be the first book to be banned in those countries. It contains many blasphemous ideas towards christianity

you're right, if the religion had nothing to hide then they'd leave the rest of the world alone.
Funny how they are the only religion in an uproar about the truth. its time they face the facts that the QURAN is a book of hate and lies.
It's been read by some of the great scholars and translated as well. And it always comes out the same...its a book filled with Hate ..and if the ones who convert to this sick religion believe it will be better on that side, well then, I say, not only convert, but go live in the lands that control your way of thinking as well

there is no god but the one god Allah, and Muhammad is his messanger....you can write all the satanic verse type books you want....Islam is the truth and you can not defeat the word of god....you can misconstrue verse frm any religion if you choose to ...i can take a verse frm the bible and and say AH HA!!! LOOK THE CHRISTIANS ARE VIOLENT - AND I CAN DO THE SAME WITH THE TORAH...BUT the reality is that we are creatures of God, and he created us and he gave us guidance to deal with all aspects of life tht we may face....and that includes what some deem as violence....and no....Islam does not condone wanton , unrestricted violence...but it recognizes violence and taxes and childbirth and food and etc etc etc....so to those who hate Islam., its unfortunate tht you do...but your hate will consume you before it consumes us...for God is the protector of those who have faith....and for my broters and sisters in islam, remember to love those things that god loves and hate those things tht god hates....dont let the kuffar disrupt what you have to do as a muslim...make salaah,,,,give zakat and sadaqah, fast and make hajj if you can...dont get caught up in shirk....and remember..everything we do is dawa....ad dawatusalaffiyah....give the call of our predecessors....

very well said ashanti.

i wish people would learn that the actions of a small percentage of a large group of people does not represent the beliefs or religion of ALL of those people.

look at how many people have performed terrorist acts in the name of religions other than islam. however, you disassociate them conveniently by calling them cults.

i think it would be best for us to respect eachothers differences whether they be based on religion, race or whatever else.

Peace to all.

It is not a small percentage. It is the majority. Practically all countries with a muslim majority are fascist countries. They have no concept of human rights. They believe in sharia law which discrimnates against non-muslims. It is racist. Clean up your religion and the way it is promulgated in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, syria, Pakistan, Malaysia, nigeria, Egypt etc etc and then talk about it being humane. Untill then try keeping to the truth and do not talk of terrorism being a minotity when muslim countries terrorise non muslims.

Muslim Med Students in U.K. Object to Baring Arms For Proper Hygene

To appease, or not to appease. That is the question the British Health Ministry is probably asking themselves. Americans beware, this will probably come to a hospital near you very soon.

Female Muslim medical students in England are refusing to obey hygiene rules enacted to stop the spread of deadly superbugs, asserting that they are against Islam. Continue
Isn't anybody getting sick of these people yet? They're more of a pain in the ass than a house full of termites. If they don't want to follow the rules, get out.

What is Jihad: The Arabic word Jihad is derived from the root word Jahada (struggle). Jihad has come to mean an offensive war to be waged by Muslims against all non-Muslims to convert them to Islam on the pain of death. Jihad is enjoined on all Muslims by the Quran.

This site brings you the history of the Islamic Jihad from a neutral and factual viewpoint.

I am stunned at the hatred here! I am a Muslim and VERY proud of it. Islam IS a religion of peace and that is why more people are converting to it then any other religion (despite all the islamophobic propaganda). The anti-islamic comments here are nothing but rubbish comments by people who have NEVER read the glorious Quran or have spent ANY amount of unprejudiced time learning about Islam. It is pointless arguing with them as all they want to do is insult and this is what gives them pleasure. Lets just leave them to it. We do not have to sink to their depths. If these people want to know about Islam then they should ask sensible questions and not act like they know what Islam is.

From your statement it becomes obvious that you have not read your Quran, hadith, Sirat Rasullah, etc. to see what and who Muhammad was. Are your sure you do not want to take the time to do that before you cokent further? It is all in your books ..... nobdy is asking you to convert.

I have to agree with you.

Wow, we studied the concept of 'Morality plays' like in 5th grade.

'Morality plays are a type of theatrical allegory in which the protagonist is met by personifications of various moral attributes who try to prompt him to choose a godly life over one of evil. The plays were most popular in Europe during the 15th and 16th century. Having grown out of the religiously based mystery plays of the Middle Ages, they represented a shift towards a more secular base for European theatre.'

Theatre goes back to early Greece ... what has happened to the Mideast?
I think I remember studying a couple of Persian plays in college.. what has happened to change the character of their civilization to go so backwards?

Rather than riot, burn and destroy stuff, and kill people someone should give these people a clue.

Neutral and factual? I just visited the site, and looky what I found:

"We can say that Islam, which was born by the sword, shall die by the sword. As it was a death threat that made people into Muslims and kept them as Muslims, the only way these scum can be shaken out of their adherence to the savagery called Islam is a death threat. Not individual death threats as the Muslims hurl today at Hirsi and Salman, but a death threat of extermination through a nuclear holocaust of the entire Muslim population across the globe!

Only when the beastlike Muslims see the determination of a world to do them in, upto their last man and woman, can the Ummah of Islam be smashed."

If that is what you call "neutral" I'd hate to see what you would call biased. Aside from that excerpt, it was a very interesting, almost compelling read, were it not for spelling, punctuation and grammar errors unbefitting anything in writing other than a public blog appealing to the lowest common denominator. Oh, and if you stop scrolling down or pause too long to read, your browser will be whisked back up to the top of the page; very annoying and time-consuming to find where you last got hijacked from. Thanks for recomending it. I don't think it's fit for serious consideration by acedemia, hollywood, or journalism (unless it's trash journalism), as the author strongly proposes. Didn't anybody proofread that mess? I guess I'll have to pick up a copy of the Quran and read it myself. You can't trust what other people have to say about it. Everyone has an agenda.

Many Islamic people were converted by the sword and many today are being held hostage by their Islamic "faith".

People have been insulting Christianity forever and Christians have taken it but say one little peep against Islam and the chilrden of that faith cannot deal with it.
