I always thought that the one thing that says it all about how perverse and violent Islam is how at one point the prophet himself ordered the sodomizing of young boys. Any religion whose main prophet and founder would do that is pathetic and just evil.
Never did Christ tell his followers to rape, kill, loot, sodomize, or kill anyone. NO ONE can say that about Mohammed. God is less the center of the religion than the Christian religions.

this is coming from an Arab-American (yes, both are in my blood, not passport)who have lived in both the Arab and American worlds,
Jihad is not about fighting infidels. It is about fighting infidels who are attacking either ISlam, or Islamic countries.
Now I wil lset a few things straight. Arab culture is NOT the enemy. Whoever thought of this idea was completely ignorant. The arab culture is a very generous and welcoming culture. The morons (Bin laden, brainwashed followers, Khomeini) pissed all over the once great Arab reputaion of hospitality. IF you would leave your (probably) secluded town yo live in and actually visit the arab world you might not make yourself look as rediculous with your opinions. My mother wold be considered a WASP, she moved to Kuwait in the 1970s to teach (after teaching al lvoer europe and the USA) and fell in love withthe people and has been there ever since. She is a Christian (Catholic) and sometimes attends one of the 4 churches lcated in Kuwait. yeah, the arab world is so evil huh? If you are ever invited to a typical Arab family's home, you would be treated better than every member of that family.
The purpose of Jihad has been abused, just like the crusaders. oh yeah, buddy, you forgot to mension that when the Crusaders intered JArusalem they also slaughtered every non-christian (Jewish civilians, Muslim civilians). There is a huge amount of stupidity going around the muslim world and that makes all the good muslims look bad.
by the way, i dont know if u have ever heard the term 'BS', but Bin Laden is full of it, and that is precicely why he uses Islam as an excuse for the 9-11 attacks, which by the way killed more Muslims than Jewish people. There were a good number of Muslims in the twin towers atthe time of the attack. ahem the media didnt bother to mention that.
The topic of Isreal, alot of you people seem to show your ignorance when it comes to this. YES, suicide bombs in Israeli civilians is horrible, and I condemn it. the only thign that bugs me is that nobody botherd to look at how the problem started in the first place. A bunch of Zionists convinced the UN that because their holy book says current day ISrael belongs to the jews, that they should be able to kick all its inhabitants out, and form their own country with no regard to where they will live. Oh, and if they attempt to fight back, they are evil and shouldbe killed. Last time i checked, kicking someone out of their own land and playing the victim and using a holy book that is almost a millenia old is not only STUPID, but unreligious in every shape or form. Though shall not kill my a$$. Hundreds of thousands of palestinian children and adults have been mutilated and killed since then and nobody has done anything about it. None of you seem to be bringing up that issue now do you? SOme of you may not know this, but an american protestor was killed by a bulldozer by the israeli government while she was standing in the way of the demolition of a palestinian family's house in 2003. She is looked at as a martyr by the muslims in the area. So how evil is this Arab culture? Oh, but what the Israeli government has done to the palestinans is good, right? (notice the sarcasm, for those who are unable to pick it up).
I could go on and on disproving alot of you. But my conclusion: the holy wars, with both the muslims and christian crusaders, were both equal in stupidity, their sense of evil, and sense of expansionism. They all killed in the name of God and ironically, Islam and Christianity have alot more similarities than differences. You will find the story of the Virgin Mary and Jesus in the Quran as well.
a note: throughout my 10 years of ISlamic studies, and observations of the Quran, I never once saw anything pertaining to the idea of Prophet Mohamed sodomizing young boys. That is looked at as evil in the muslim world; it is considered rape. For rape, is capital punishment.
forgive my typos if there are any.
