God gave us religion so we could all live with each other through peace and equality and not to despise each other, also to live with each other through truth and JUSTICE. During George Bush Jr. he passed a lot of laws and regulations that would not be excepted by the Torah, Bible, and Quran. Capitalism that we practice today is not accepted by GOD. That is a FACT. Religion is being used for propaganda. Religion is the number 1 tool to scare people and keep people divided, and filled with hatred towards each other. As an black American shia muslim I want everyone to know I love my country and religion, but my fellow Americans we are lost in ignorance. Let me first start off by saying this Islam at one point in its early years my Prophet and his follwers were kicked out of there homeland, and were living in the open dessert for 3 years. Then one day a group of people from the city of Medina who were Jews and Christians openly invited him and his companions to live with them and to govern over them. This Is a historical fact. All three relgions lived together as One. The problem we have which we don’t understand is we are very misinformed and we are badly ignorant.During George Bush Jr. term he passed a lot of regulation and laws no Prophet or Jesus Christ would except nor Prophet Musa. For one example the interest rate that were allowed on home mortgages would not be accepted by God law in any religion. Second of all as far as the Taliban and Al-Qedia anyone who Murder any individual will never
make it to paradise and destined to go to Hellfire. Quran 5:32. What i’m really trying to say is that we are being used and abused. America we as a nation have to really start Knowing and Reading for ourselves. As Americans we are not told the entire Truth.

The crusaders tried it before and they are preparing the ground work fo the repeat of a holy war against Islam. In Islam there are no holy wars, nor any justification to kill other humans. It was the crusaders who went to Jerusalem at the behest of the christian church to eliminate the barbarian muslims. The so called christians are once again on the same path, any criminal act by a muslim is associateed with Islam and any criminal act of a state to invade another muslim country is considered an innocent undertaking to free the people or to introduce democracy or protect the women? Unless we witness George W, Tony Blair and their associates being tried for war crimes, I shall hang on to my opinion of coming clash of civilisation.

Most of what I’ve seen is a common thread of conflict and violence. All sides think they are right; to own this land or that land, to preach this or that, or suppress others who do not believe in what they do. Acts of suppression take many forms. From the subtle to the horrific. History proves that all religions above (and their various sub-sects) have committed atrocities. Their fanatical adherents are ruining this world and the rights of all people who believe in peace and/or secularism.

The religion was spread by the sword for a thousand years 634 – 1453 AD and would have taken over Western Europe had it not been for some push back by the Crusades. Islam’s recent turn to militancy is not new, not extreme and it’s not going to go away by ignoring it’s past and insisting that this is all caused by non-muslims who just need to be more ‘respectful’, ‘tolerant’ and ‘understanding’.

I haven’t heard any calls for tolerance, respect and understanding by Muslim leaders in Muslim countries towards Jews or Christians. Try entering Saudi Arabia with a Bible in your possession if you want a taste of “Muslim understanding”. If New Yorkers can deny a building permit for “Walmart” they certainly have a right to deny a “Islamic cultural center’ two blocks from Ground Zero.

All I ever needed to Know about Islam I learned from 634 AD through 2001 AD.

Except I see significant cherry picking in facts used to support your article. Seeing the comments of our friends and former colleagues patting you on the back behind the curtain of impartiality on Facebook really made me chuckle. Not least, you conveniently fail to remind your audience that Mr Bloomberg has been Democrat, Republican and only now is impailed on the fence of political convenience.

Isn’t this really a discussion about real estate, its all about location location location!
How about we transpose the Ground Zero Mosque discussion to Buenos Aires and envision a Mosque rising within two blocks of the ruins of the Amia building? Wouldn’t that have been equally provocative? Actually an Islamic cultural center, “El Centro Cultural Isl├ímico Custodio de las Dos Sagradas Mezquitas Rey Fahd” was built soon after that 1994 atrocity, and the earlier 1992 Embassy bombing. At least that mosque was located next to a predominately Catholic Jumbo supermarket, at a considerable and sufficiently conciliatory 6.8km from the AMIA bombing site (checked the distance on Google Maps). Strikes me then that the Ground Zero Mosque could reasonably be built further away, that’s what most New Yorkers and Americans appear to be asking. Is that really so intolerant?

The country is now a permanent residece for the evil. George W left the white house but the evil is still living in there. May God have mercy on this Nation, which is certainly going down the route of once great ROME. Let us hope that the USA leaves other spots in the world including Japan, Korea and not to forget Iraq and Afghanistan. Let us then hope that more houses of God would be built in the vacated territories.

Islam is not a danger for america.Islam does not rule to change people’s mind by using hidden methods which american people indict mosques for.Please before you comment on something try to learn about it deeply.The religion of islam never needs people who do not believe deeply or believe by other’s directions.Islam says:
Tell them about islam,leave them to think about it,if they believe hug them as brother,if no leave them do whatever they want.This is that simple.
thanks.
