This is good background information. The "Moon god" aspect of all this is being suppressed in the major media.
Many Islamic countries have the Crescent Moon on their national flags. Pakistan does for example. Some, don't, but those that don't tend to have pure green flags, like Libya and Saudi Arabia. The Saudi flag has some Arabic script and a sword on it. One flag, that of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, is pure green, with a yellow Crescent Moon and five-pointed star on it. Interestingly, the official flag of Afhanistan (as of 1995) did not have a Crescent Moon on it.
In Islamic countries, their equivalent to the Red Cross is the Red Crescent.
Islam uses a lunar calendar.
Extremists like bin Laden are literally lunatics!
I haven't read down throught the thread yet, but I am sure that there will be reactions against what you posted. Many people DON'T WANT to know the truth about Islam.
One thought: I wonder if the Muslims thought that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin somehow "defiled" the Moon by setting foot on it in 1969????

If Islam worhips the moon because it uses a lunar calendar then do the Jews worship the sun and the moon because they use a combined solar/lunar calendar that requires a leap month every third year or so? What do Catholics worship since Easter, their second holiest holiday, depends on the date of the full moon AND the vernal equinox to determine what day it falls on?
I'll agree that many people don't want to know the truth about Islam. And if they do they won't get it from you.

As a matter of fact, Islamic revolutionaries do not believe that Americans have gone to the moon. They simply refuse to believe it, being resolutely entrenched in their veneration for the moon and in their hatred of modernity.
I know this from listening in Islamic chatrooms on Yahoo.com. It is astounding what some of these people actually believe and practice. Female Genital Mutilation, FGM, documented by the World Health Organization, has been perpetrated upon 25% of all muslimahs (females muslims). That is about 300,000,000 females, most as newborns but many when they were forcibly converted to Islam by muslim husbands. According to Time magazine, American doctors are now reporting increasing numbers of American muslimah children to have had their clitoris removed right here in USA by muslim parents.
