Will do Naut
But you’ll have to give me some time, this stuff takes time to read, research and respond to  and with all the Blogit reading and commenting to do it is not easy. Still, I am glad that I could be of help. I know what you mean about not getting answers to your questions, when I read you comments page it felt like the dialogue of the deaf, it happens amongst us Arabs and Muslims too, it’s a cultural thing! In this part of this world to criticize someone is equal to insult them, there are exceptions to this weird rule of course, but in general don’t be surprised if people take things personally and fly off the handle without waiting to hear the full argument or think about it.

Taps
My pleasure . As I said in my post I had always avoided the two subjects of religion and politics because of the emotions they seem to stir, but with all the hate mongering going around in this world I think that we should start to peddle the values that realy matter: tolerance, respect for our fellow humans regardless of their color, creed and nationality and above all the ability to accept that Truth is not the monopoly of one particular group of people. All the best Taps and thank you for stopping by.

Troosha,

 

Why should I lash out at these people when we have given them plenty of reasons to hate us? I am a Muslim myself but I find a lot of the rhetoric coming from our side to be pretty offensive, I am not surprised that it offends non-Muslims. It will take centuries to undo the damage done in the past 20 years alone. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, I know that it was not an easy read, your comments made the effort worthwhile.

I agree with Taps.  You wrote an informative piece without lashing out or chastizing those who tend to associate Muslims with evil.  Thank you for the time you invested in the piece and for enlightening us on a couple of misnomers.

What a beautifully written post.  I loved that you wrote it without anger and without vitriol, but instead shared your faith with patience and kindness.   Great example for all of us who would write about religion.

Thank you for this post. For the first time, I find a Muslim addressing the issues I am concerned with in a thoughtful and articulate way. You have touched on many different areas, and I will have to reflect. I will probably post something in response, but you will have to give me a little time. In the meantime. you might want to take a look at my 'Bible and the Koran' series, http://www.blogit.com/Blogs/Blog.aspx/Nautikos/447275, and my 'Islamist Tsunami' series, http://www.blogit.com/Blogs/Blog.aspx/Nautikos/422393

I would certainly be interested in your response!
