Salam, Kinzi asked me and some of the fellow Muslims Bloggers to answer this article at Sabah's blog. The article is at LA Times By Dennis Prager. Here is some of the article: Five questions non-Muslims would like answered By Dennis Prager, Dennis Prager's nationally syndicated radio show is heard daily in Los Angeles on KRLA-AM (870). He may be contacted through his website: www.dennisprager.com. THE RIOTING IN France by primarily Muslim youths and the hotel bombings in Jordan are the latest events to prompt sincere questions that law-abiding Muslims need to answer for Islam's sake, as well as for the sake of worried non-Muslims. Here are five of them: Here are my own personal answers; I speak only for myself not for anyone else; (1) Why are you so quiet? Well, Israel occupied Palestinian land and the whole world was quiet for over 50 years, did you bother to ask why that is? A handicap old man being killed by a missile from an F16 killing him and everybody around him on his way from worshiping God, or a whole camp being slaughtered with the blessing of the Israeli army or a rocket hitting the apartment of a political man killing him and 9 of his family members is also called terrorism. While I might not agree with people blowing up themselves, I also do not agree on F16 rocketing civilians. You personally didn't say anything about the F16? I haven't been through what the Palestinian been through these years. I don't know what makes a person strap a bomb around him and go around blowing himself along with everybody around him. Must have been a tough life. I pray for both people to find peace together. (2) Why are none of the Palestinian terrorists Christian? That's a false statement. Wadee Hadad, George Habbash and many Palestinian organization leaders are Christians. (3) Why is only one of the 47 Muslim-majority countries a free country? Easy, most leaders were appointed by The British and were help to stay in power by the Americans. Which is something the US is rethinking. (4) Why are so many atrocities committed and threatened by Muslims in the name of Islam? Well, a lot worse has been done by Christians, remember McVeigh? The Crusades? (5) Why do countries governed by religious Muslims persecute other religions? I would blame this on the government itself not Islam, if you read the history of Islam you would find that Islam is the most tolerance of all. Are there any mosques or temples in the Vatican City? Peace
