They came from two seemingly opposite ends of the spectrum.

Muslims and Mennonites.

But in the gymnasium at Fairview Christian School on Saturday night, they were just there to hear each other out.

Representatives from Berks' Christian and Muslim communities squared off before about 150 people in a friendly debate on why each group believes theirs to be the true religion ...

from Reading Eagle/Reading Times:

"'Islam is unique in that it's probably the only surviving religion left, based on historical fact that it's the only one that has a direct lineage to the past,' said Scherfen, a Gulf War veteran whose wife is from Pakistan.'Islam is untampered. It is the only religion out there that hasn't been conquered altogether.'"

Apparently Scherfen hasn't heard of Spain's "reconquista," but if "islam is untampered," it's only because it's qu'ran has already been abrogated.

..... Anyone can invent a belief system in competition with the many others; the difficulty is to get very many people to pay a lot of money to its clergy for centuries.

And Muslims are the only surviving true belivers.

Who amongst the religionists could match the courage, and character, and enthusiasm, and inspiration, of Muslims?

Who have defeated the mighty Romans, wrestled the Persians, handcuffed the Mongols, tamed the Chinese, and tussled with the Americans?

Muslims are so strong, they made the enemies withered.

Actually, the Quran has some Syriac words in it. Muslims don't even realize this. It's supposed to all be in God's language, which is Arabic.

Comparing a Muslim myself against a neo nazi is a very unfair evaluation.

May be a neoconservative American rightist is the right match for a neo nazi likeness.

I am an ordinary man who worked hard to develop the talent I was given.

I believed in myself and I believe in the goodness of others.

I believe there is Allah who watches our conducts.

A religion is defined by it's scriptures. And tell us all about the courage, character, enthusiasm and inspriration of those who commit violence in the name of Islam all of the time by screaming Allahu Akbar before they commit this violence. Tell us all about all of the Muslim terrorist organization where they ALL have names related to Islam.

They did no such thing, the Roman empire was already dwindled by the time Muslims got to Spain via the sword. Read what you prophet, guided by God did. Looks like God wanted him to attack the Romans without being attacked first, and then had Muhammad gather 30,000 men to do so, only to change his mind and send the Muslims back home. Who tells you this crap? Here's a very respected Muslim scholar and historian.

http://www.qtafsir.com/index.php...

"Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the People of the Scripture,) This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah's religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims' control. Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination. The Messenger sent his intent to various Arab areas around Al-Madinah to gather forces, and he collected an army of thirty thousand. Some people from Al-Madinah and some hypocrites, in and around it, lagged behind, for that year was a year of drought and intense heat. The Messenger of Allah marched, heading towards Ash-Sham to fight the Romans until he reached Tabuk, where he set camp for about twenty days next to its water resources. He then prayed to Allah for a decision and went back to Al-Madinah because it was a hard year and the people were weak, as we will mention,"

I am completely astounded by all of the false things that Muslims of today are told. It's the biggest false propaganda machine in history that put's Hitler's to shame, and it's all driven by Saudi Oil money. You debunk one lie and they have already created four more by the time you debunk the first one.

Does anybody know about the claim of Neil Armstrong hearing the Muslim call to prayer on the moon and converting to Islam? And many Muslims swallow this whole.

Then there is the clearly fraudulent Gospel of Barnabas that has been proven to have been written in the middle ages, but since it tells Muslims what they want to hear, they swallow it whole. It even contradicts the Quran by claiming there are nine heavens and it speaks of rolling wine in wood caskets which was a technique used in the middle ages, and stupid Muslims just ignore this and swallow it whole.

And the people who create these lies don't care about lying in the least. All they care about is how many Muslims there are, and they will tell you anything you want to hear. Very, very dishonest people.

Who even knows what this clown could possibly be talking about. He's just fed utter crap from the Muslim false propaganda machine funded by Saudi oil money. Muslims don't have the least bit of a problem lying, not even to fellow Muslims, as long as it increases their numbers.

Sure, until Muslims feel powerful enough. Their prophet was a deceiver that lulled non Muslims into a false sense of safety, so why would you expect Muslims to do anything different?

The Rewards for Justice Program has been effective. Since the inception of the Rewards for Justice program in 1984, the United States has paid more than $100 million to over 70 people who provided credible information that put terrorists behind bars or prevented acts of international terrorism worldwide. The program played a significant role in the arrest of international terrorist Ramzi Yousef, who was convicted in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Today, the Rewards for Justice Program plays a critical role in the 2014 Afghanistan Transition Plan.

People with information on any past or planned act of international terrorism against the United States anywhere in the world are urged to contact the the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. military, or Rewards for Justice. Rewards for Justice can be contacted directly via any one of the following avenues:
