Wahabi Imam to burn the Bible in Cairo!
Wahabi Imam to burn the Bible in Cairo!
The question is why didn’t the western and most influential mediacomment on this racist and discriminatory incident? The diehard bigots and hypocrite racists who want to burn Quran and smear Islam are the real terrorists.

 What if some Wahabi Imam in a mosque decided to burn the holy Bible after Friday prayer in Cairo .

Let’s imagine the headlines of the highly ranked newspapers, websites and dozens of bitter Islamophobes on their websites truly they would have a field day.

That was hypothetically speaking, now back to reality and what has in fact happened in the US to be precise a church in Florida was planning to burn the Quran, however the appalling truth is that all news bulletin corporations and smearcasters failed to report such incidents abstaining from writing or publishing a word on this subject.

In a tilting of scales, it seems to be normal and acceptable to have a Church burn Quran Day but in the event of a Muslim burning Bible Day imagine the uproar and scandal.

The question is why didn’t the western and most influential mediacomment on this racist and discriminatory incident? The diehard bigots and hypocrite racists who want to burn Quran and smear Islam are the real terrorists.

Although terrorism cannot and will not be justified the burning of the Muslims Holy Quran may lead to such undesirable actions in response to the provocative actions illustrating anti-Islamic tendencies.

The Independent websites, who discussed the Quran burning day, unfortunately are not high profiled or effective news sources. They focused mainly on the lack of exposing of the incident wondering why the more famous agencies abstained from discussion.

Throughout Islam's long history, Muslims have never been involved in any actions of religious suppression against Jews and Christians. The Ottoman Empire received thousands of Spanish Jews refugees after the defeat of Muslims who existed with other different believers in Andalusia, And within this history, Muslims didn't try even once to fight the ideas by sword! they always were trying to oppose ideas by ideas.

Current events in the US with the burning of the holy Quran reveal some Christians’ lack of tolerance to a different religion and culture exposing their true ignorance. Rather than discuss and engage in open dialogue with Muslims they chose to burn the Quran demonstrating pure hatred and animosity

Many questions will be asked, and the true, factual answers will not be in favour of news corporations such as CNN and FOX News. Do they support these bigots? Are the smearcasters supporting the Christian bigots? And the most important question remains … What if they were Muslims how would they react?

"Throughout Islam's long history, Muslims have never been involved in any actions of religious suppression against Jews and Christians." - Yea maybe Jews and Christians, but I find that hard to believe. What about Hindus and Sikhs, have you ever heard of the Mughal Empire??? Muslims have been killing Sikhs since the beginning of our religion, but they will never be able to finish us off. We will give up our heads like our gurus, but NEVER convert to Islam!!!!!!

Neither story is newsworthy David
If one small group of christians in a backwater burned a Quran it simply isn't newsworthy, just as if some small group of muslims burt a Bible. Your whole argument is based on false presumptions and a misunderstanding of how news organizations judge news-worthiness. Just ignore the rednecks in Florida and go on living a good life, that is what we do.

islam is a religion of tolerance, patience, forbearance and peace. there's no need to follow the example of several non muslims who are trying to burn the holy koran in the west. the noble of islam would never been reducing just because of many non muslims burn the koran but when we show intolerance, like that wahabi imam did, well that would bring negative impact to islam and muslims.

so-called martyrs Infidel
I'm interested in knowing why you think this statement is true: Throughout Islam's long history, Muslims have never been involved in any actions of religious suppression against Jews and Christians. The Ottoman Empire received thousands of Spanish Jews refugees after the defeat of Muslims who existed with other different believers in Andalusia, And within this history, Muslims didn't try even once to fight the ideas by sword! they always were trying to oppose ideas by ideas. How does this statement stand in light of those who martyr themselves while blowing up cafes, markets, police stations, high rises.. in the name of Islam?

Bibles At Saudi Airports - What happens to them? Hallowed
If there is not a problem make one up!! The need for Islamophobia ~ but why don\'t non-Muslims have equal rights in the Islamic world under Islamic/Sharia type laws ~ do you expect that one day the whole world will look like this? Muslims could give non-Muslims equal rights in their own countries! Let\\\'s get together and get some equal rights for non-Muslims in the Islamic world !! Yeah!!! But then equal rights for non-Muslims would violate Islamic law!! But for now ~ its Islamophobia, Islamophobia!

Who cares about a bible ... Stop burning Christians (and others) Axb
Hey Omar, Its almost impossible to burn a bible in many Islamic places (eg Saudia Arabia) because its actually illegal to flash one around in public. And anyway who cares what Muslims do to a bible. I'd much rather they stopped burning Christians and people of other faiths they don't agree with (see Pakistan on a daily basis). Grow up Omar and deal with the real issures.

www.infideltaskforce.webs.com Infidel Task Force
They are going to burn the Quran. So let me say to you, what muslims say to us: Ask yourself ..WHY? Why are they doing that? What did we do to provoke such an act? Maybe its the violence that Islam promotes throughout the world? Maybe people are sick and tired of all the demands that western imams are placing on non-muslims? Maybe its because Islamic leaders are turning your religion into cult? Maybe its because your leaders are speaking openly of controlling the world through Islam? Maybe its none of the above...or maybe its more. There is a reason why that Koran is being burned. There will be more Koran burnings. Don't think that by staging a bible burn will solve anything. Thats the mind set of Mid-eastern muslims..."Eye for an Eye" Hence no peace in the middle east. SO start asking yourself ...WHY this is being done.

Islamic histor. Ahmed Salam
There are a lot of comments I can comment on the article and on the running debate. but I wanna comment on the comments first. Infidel Task Force says that because of \\\"What Muslims did\\\", so Quran need to be burned for this! Actually this is hilarious! No One can fight Ideas by burning them, and who do this is just a mentally retarded. Do they bigots believe that burning Quran will solve any problems? I think that this provocation will make more terrorists to target America! This is not warning! but the American bigots should know that they fanatic deeds will have unwanted reactions from some Muslim bigots. On the other side, we should separate between Muslims and Islam, what happens in Saudi Arabia is very unacceptable by a lot of Muslim scholars and Moderate Muslims in general. And what the Saudi regime do is not expressing the real Islamic thoughts! then we should see what American Army did in Iraq and Afghanistan is completely expressing about the real American soul! Personally I believe not! Americans should stop bigots and extremists before asking Muslims to stop the Muslim extremism, because every Islamic extremism is a reaction for extremism and terrorism from the other side.

Hypocrites Jim Smith
When Palastinians took over a Church in Bethlehem, they wiped their bums with pages from the Bible. The Western media had little coverage of the offense. Christians just complained but then forgave. Muslims use any excuse for violence.

You forgot to mention some vital history Joe
You need to do some background checks: Christians in Gaza Fear for Their Lives as Muslims Burn Bibles and Destroy Crosses: (this took place in 2007) http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/285123/christians_in_gaza_fear_for_their_lives.html Muslims burn a Bible in Pakistan in 2008: http://www.speroforum.com/a/17283/Muslims-burn-Bible-in-Pakistan The following took place in 2007. The boys were 7 to 10 year olds. The school tried to contact the parents who refused to comment. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/muslim-boys-urinated-on-bible/story-e6frg6nf-1111112640400 Tell me in all honesty: What would you do to defend the Bible being burned in your country? Also, can I build a church there? Thank you for your honest reply.

Muslims and Bible Burning Timothy Miles
It is totally disingenuous to claim Muslims have never participated in Bible burning or religious suppression against Christians. Just Google \"Muslims burn bible\" without the quotes and you will find numerous instances in Gaza, Pakistan and elsewhere of just such instances. Burning the Quran is wrong just as burning the Bible. The difference is Bible and Church burnings along with the occasional beheading of a Christian hardly get the kind of news coverage that this story is. Why don\'t you put equal effort into condemning Muslims who act out against Christians and their churches? It would be a different world indeed if Muslims took as strong a stand against their extremists as Christians do against theirs.

Why is the Quran so important? Jason
Why when muslims do something offensive towards christians, we christians are expected to accept it and allow for diversity and free speech, HOWEVER, when christians do something, we are considered evil. Muslims and the teachings/practices of the Quran have done far worse. Stop treating muslims like victims. America's sovereignty is at stake.

Burn Korans, not Christians Stewart
In Pakistan the relentless hatred of Sunni Islamic fanatics towards all minorities is continuing and the reasons, like always, are based on their hate-filled minds. Therefore, at least six innocent Christians have been killed on the grounds that the Koran was desecrated. Of course, no evidence, and even if evidence, does this mean you can burn alive women, men, and children? Well in the eyes of radical Sunni Islam it does. You see, in the past few weeks many Shia Muslims have been murdered by radical Sunni Islamic fanatics in Iraq; meanwhile Buddhists are often killed or beheaded by Sunni fanatics in Thailand; and now it is the turn of Christians to be killed at random in nations like Somalia and Pakistan.

Koran Burning Maynard
Nonsense - there has just been, in the last 5 minutes, a prominent news article on National BBC radio here in England - Radio Five - I\\\'ve just listened to it. I considered converting to Islam once. I read the Koran and was horrified at how it mixes evil with good. It is an awful book, and m,y personal experience in 20 countries of the middle and far east is that it has enslaved hundreds of millions of otherwise good people. It certainly has nothing to do with any concept of a good god.

Koran Hugh
A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. \"Very few people were true Nazis,\" he said, \"but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.\" We are told again and again by \'experts\' and \'talking heads\' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the \'silent majority,\' is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 40 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China\'s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were \'peace loving\'? History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

The way USA journalists work today is this: If it can be political and they can spin it their progressive believe way, that\'s the stories they go with. Anything else is Lindsay Lohan and Brangelina and kooks all over the USA....weirdos they can spin like the average American. Only the real story is that today\'s American journalists are the weirdos.....they are 60\'s holdovers and brainwashed and they all think alike; so they fit the \"we all want to be the same; nobody better, nobody worse, unless it\'s a Christian or a \'Conservative\', of course.

Islamic traditionalists are against free speech and freedom of religion and are lawless. They burn Bibles by the thousands every year. They condemn people to death for converting to Christianity. They protect the kidnappers of Christian girls for forced marriages with muslims.

People burn bibles all the time... Reza
The christians in america typical don't really seem to react strongly to burning of their bibles, and it happens pretty frequently. Recently the u.s. military operating in Afghanistan even burned a shipment of bibles that were sent to them by some religious group as a way to dispose of them. Also american youth rebelling against the restrictions of their society will often demean christian symbols as a form of protest against puritanical idealism. Now, if Muslims are going to be intellectual honest, the destruction of the Bamiyaan buddha's (previous to the WTC act) was a fairly more dramatic desecration of another religions sacred objects than is some backwards american preacher trying to make a name for himself by burning the Qur'an. And if you recall, buddhist didn't really get upset about that... some buddhist even redirected the focus on to the humanitarian crisis occurring in Afghanistan.

confusion Peng
"What if they were Muslims how would they react?" There are several instances in the last five years that included Muslims burning bibles in Saudi Arabia, Australia, Pakistan, and Gaza (http://plancksconstant.org/blog1/2010/09/muslims_burn_bibles_routinely_and_often.html) and the western news sources you cited - CNN and Fox News - didn't even report them. So if they were Muslims how would the media react? Apparently they wouldn't react. Apparently Muslims get to freely express their religious intolerance without repercussions but when Americans decide to express their intolerance, the Western media is all over it. I'm not really sure why you're complaining. The western media you seem to despise so vehemently seems to give Muslims a "get out of jail free" card whilst the rest of western society has to live up to a different standard of acceptable behavior.

burning Bibles C Jones
This really happened and we Christians did not threaten to kill or behead Muslims. Australia : Muslim Students Urinate, Spit On Then Burn Bible--Sunday, December 10, 2006 http://justifythis.blogspot.com/2006/12/australia-muslim-students-urinate-spit.html Uh oh, does this mean the worlds 2 billion Christians are gonna start rioting in the streets and calling for the blood of Muslims to be spilled? Hmmm probably not, but I'm sure the MSM will report this at and make it front page headlines for a month just like the Koran desecrations : TWO Muslim students have been expelled from an Islamic school in Melbourne for urinating and spitting on a Bible and setting it on fire. The explosive incident has forced the East Preston Islamic College to call in a senior imam to tell its 650 Muslim students that the Bible and Christianity must be respected. Anxious teachers at the school have also petitioned principal Shaheem Doutie, expressing "grave concern" about an "inculcation of hatred and radical attitudes towards non-Muslims" at the school, including towards non-Muslim teachers. The Bible desecration took place last week at a school camp held near Bacchus Marsh, about 50km west of Melbourne, attended by 33 teenage Muslim boys ranging in age from Year7 to Year 10. A school report of the incident, obtained by The Australian, says it happened late at night and involved three students and another two watching. "The main perpetrator (a Year 7 student) urinated on the Holy Bible, tore some pages from the Holy Book and burnt them then finally spat on the Holy Book," the report says. The second boy, from Year 9, "tore pages from the Holy Book and burnt them", while a third student, from Year 7, "tore pages from the Holy Bible and then he rolled it up like a cigarette and pretended to smoke it". The boys come from a variety of ethnic Muslim backgrounds -- one is believed to be an Albanian/Malaysian, another Lebanese and another Indonesian. Mr Doutie, whose school receives about $3.9 million in state and federal government funding each year, told The Australian yesterday that both he and the school community were appalled by the Bible desecration and that he had expelled the first two boys and suspended the third. In a letter to all staff on Monday, Mr Doutie wrote: "The school unconditionally apologises for this horrible act as conducted by some illiterate and ignorant students while under the care of EPIC teachers. "We regard the desecration of the Bible in a very serious light and therefore we have taken serious action against the offenders. "The Bible is an important book both for non-Muslims and Muslims and should be treated as a holy book by all religions." Mr Doutie said he did not believe that the boys realised the significance of their act. But to ensure it did not happen again he had called in the assistant imam of the Newport Mosque, Oman Haouli, to tell the students that the Bible was a sacred book. "My lesson to them was to respect their neighbours and respect all religions," Mr Haouli said yesterday. But the desecration incident has shaken the nerves of the school's teachers, about half of whom are non-Muslim. A petition signed by 22 teachers expressed "anguish and dismay at the grave incident of the desecration of the Holy Bible". "This whole incident implies a deep hatred inculcated in the students towards the Christians/non-Muslim teachers," it says. The petition said there had been "previous incidents of students misbehaving towards non-Muslim teachers". It called on the school to "take steps to rectify this explosive situation" to ensure the safety of teachers. Mr Doutie said the school had tried to contact the parents of the expelled boys to find out why they had desecrated the Bible. But he said the school had not received a response. EPIC is an eight-year-old primary and secondary school in Melbourne's north that caters mostly to the children of working-class immigrant Somali and Lebanese families. The Bible desecration comes at a time of heightened tension among Australia's 300,000-member Islamic community, many of whom believe their religion is being unfairly discriminated against because of terrorism fears. Many Muslims remain angry about the public humiliation suffered by their spiritual leader, the mufti Taj Din al-Hilali, after the Sheik likened female rape victims to pieces of meat who brought the attacks on themselves. Link... Where would the children get these crazy ideas from you may wonder? Where does this hatred come from? A good start might be the school library where Islamic hate videos are kept : EPIC principal Shaheem Doutie said the school community was shocked by the desecration and said the college placed great emphasis on religious tolerance. However, as revealed in The Australian yesterday, the school's library contained a video of a banned cleric calling Australian Christians "evil" and non-Muslim schools "sewers". Although the radical tape, of Abdur Raheem Green, has been shown to some students at the school, Ibrahim said he had not seen it. Link... Not to worry though, the guy who made the video, who still lectures to school groups on behalf of a London mosque says he's "shocked to the core" that some students were influenced by the video of him calling non-Muslims evil. Shocked I tells ya : THE British Muslim lecturer accused of inspiring anti-Christian feeling at a Melbourne Islamic college says he is disgusted by news that three students had defaced a Bible. Abdur Raheem Green said he was "shocked to the core" to be told that students at East Preston Islamic College had urinated on and burned a Bible. "These boys need to repent to God because, quite apart from being offensive to Christians, this is seriously wrong under Islam," he said. "The Koran tells us not to insult other people's gods." Mr Green, a 42-year-old former Catholic who lectures to school groups on behalf of a high-profile mainstream mosque in London, said he was horrified by suggestions that the boys could have been influenced by a video in the school's library of a 2003 lecture in which he referred to some non-Muslim Australians as evil. "I have changed my views a lot over the past few years and I have also come to realise that I should be more careful in how I express myself - I regret some things I have said in the past," he told The Weekend Australian. "But even back then, when I saw things in more simplistic, black-and-white terms than I do now, I was not calling Christians or Christianity evil. I was talking about things that go on in Western society, like 14-year-olds having sex, and drug abuse and alcohol abuse. "When I say marriage outside sex is evil or homosexuality is evil I do believe that but I am not saying that those people are evil, I am saying the act is evil. Conservative Christians and Jews feel the same way. There is a theological conflict with Christianity because we happen to believe it is blasphemy to say that any human was the Son of God, but it should be a peaceful conflict." The 2003 video shows Mr Green warning that if Muslim children attended non-Muslim schools "they will be destroyed - you think you live in a sewer and you come up smelling roses?" But yesterday he said he was mystified by those comments, saying he changed his mind on the issue "well before 2003". Mr Green, who works as a full-time "outreach officer" for London Central Mosque, lectures on Islam to about 10,000 non-Muslim students a year. The father of 10 describes himself as socially conservative - his wife chooses to wear a niqab face veil - but says the main political criticism he attracts is from hardliners saying he is too moderate. He supports armed jihad, "meaning the defence of our religion against aggression", and spent two weeks doing military training in Afghanistan in 1990 when the US was supporting Islamic fighters against the Soviet invasion. But he considers Osama bin Laden a "twisted" murderer. Mr Green, who has visited Australia four times, said he had never been banned from visiting despite being placed on an Australian government watch list, which forced him to cancel a visit last year because the delay involved in applying for a visa caused him to miss a scheduled speaking engagement. "I would like to come back there and sit down with the teachers and students at that school and talk these things through," he said. Link...

BIBLES ARE REGULARLY BURNED BY MUSLIMS & NO UPROAR. LiberalCanadian
You don\'t understand the West at all, obviously. People DO burn Bibles, and no violent protests break out, and it hardly gets noticed by the media. (see link for example) http://www.news.com.au/national/muslim-boys-urinated-on-bible/story-e6frfkx0-1111112640931?from=public_rss Westerners aren\'t religiously intolerant or violently \"medieval\" anymore (the crusades were a long time ago). And so we don\'t go around stoning those who offend our religious sensibilities. Please feel free to burn bibles, if you feel the need -- it will only show how petty and mean-spirited you are. Now, maybe muslims could likewise just relax and accept that the Florida pastor who wants to burn korans is just a childish, angry little man who should be ignored. Seriously, don\'t you have better things to be passionate about in your lives?

Media coverage. YaYa Ahmed
Omar, have you lost touch with reality? This "koran burning" has been headline news throughout the World and has been equally as roundly condemned. The real "tilting of the scales" is that when our dear brother Muslims DO go and burn the Bible (eg in Gaza, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia), it is then that there is (virtually)no reportage on the matter.

Plain Truth Tughlaq
I heard of Christian leaders personally ordered to slaughter Muslims and they named the project "Crusade". I heard Christian of Europe slaughtered innocent native population of Africa, America and Asia for 5 centuries in the name of Colonization. I heard Christian were ignited two world wars and killed millions in the name of power hungry. I heard Christian involved in murdering of millions in Koreans and Vietnamese in the name of new world order. I also heard Muslims fought wars only for self defense, that is to protect their faith. This is not fabrication but a fact very clearly recorded in the history. Now let us know who are power hungry, blood thirsty, murders, criminals.

Is that so? JCR
If so many Muslim scholars and Moderate muslims observe the occurences in Saudi Arabia as unexceptable why aren\'t they protesting of the unjust portrayal that most Muslims are subject to? Anyway, so Muslims have really NEVER been involved in \'religious supression\' of Jews and Christians? So the various destructions of churches, Hindu and Buddhist temples over history is not supression? Is the conviction of Jews in Europe by Muslims not supression? Why are Muslims allowed to burn many American and Jewish flags, but one suggestion of burning a Quran is aired everywhere? Yes, it was heard EVERYWHERE. Even watching Fox news, it was referred to many times. If this reveals Christians\' lack of tolerance, why do Muslims require their own schools, why is a vast majority of foods in shops Halal, why is eating in front of a Muslim during Ramadan offensive, why is having pork in butchers offensive? Why do I have to stand by and see Governments of the world bend to Muslim demands because of \"discrimination\"? Under a banner of diversity, Muslims are now fighting for Parallel systems of law. What is the point of multi-cultural societies being united under one form of government when Muslims want their own laws for themselves. Is this your idea of tolerance?

The scary thing is that people actually get angry about a lone idiot burning a book. I have no respect for people who would burn a religious book intending to offend and I have no respect for religious people who would actually be offended because someone destroyed the magic book.

The Burning of the Quran or the Bible April-Dawn
I wish I was not so late getting into this discussion as this is a very important one. I would like to add that I live in a very rural country location in the US and even I heard about that man who was planning on burning the Quran. Many of us were very upset about this and put the pressure on for it not to happen. It is not right for any of us to dis respect anyone\'s beliefs and books. I for one would never let it happen if I can help it and I would always speak against such things. The Muslims and Christians need to unite and stand together - not apart. It is apartness of this world that is breeding the lack of peace. I am tired of war, I am tired of hate, I am tired of seeing anyone hurt. I love my Muslim brothers and sisters. I have friends in Egypt, Iran and Palestinian friends who live in the US. Just as I tell my US Christian friends that any human group has a bad one in the crowd - so do we. We must all do what we can to stop the hate. There are more civilians than government - we must stop it. We must stand together as humanity. With much love, This crazy American Christian lady =)

Gimme a Break! KompisvBoy
This \"article\" is a joke!!! The media in the US DID cover the hypothetical burning of the Quran. IT DID cause an uproar in the country. So do pretend we are all ignorant haters in the US. And I believe he was making a point. IT was a mind/thought exerise. Jesus.

Burning Qur'ans Jack Korbin
I am an American and I can tell you this is absolutely false. This was an enormous story in the United States and was on virtually every news station around the clock. This is absolute garbage. Everyone knew about the PROPOSED burning of the qur'ans and was even discussed in my local school. This received enormous media attention and was widely denounced, even by the president of the united states. Dont just consider things on this website to be fact, look it up for yourselves. Assalamu aleikum.

Bible burning Christopher Long
It wouldn't offend me if a Muslim burned the bible. There was an idiot here in America who burned the Quran. Our Constitution covers such acts called the FREEDOM of SPEECH. It's just a book anyway. There are plenty more where that came from anyway. It's the words that should be important not the book or pages the words are in.

What are you talking about King Sikh, when Muslims entered South Asia they gave special rights to Hindus and Buddhists similar to the People of the Book. Muslims still believe Guru Nanak was Muslim. And how can you say a warrior people like the Sikhs were always at war with Muslims, your holy sites are in Pakistan and you have the right to visit them.

I have a question for Muslims? Brenda
What is the diffrents between Allah, prophet muhammad and God, Jesus Christ. Inorder to convert to Islam you would have to say their is NO GOD but Allah. So another words you are denoucing GOD, Jesus Christ and accept Allah as your God. I am only asking thats all. I want you to know I do not hate you or anyone.

Jesus paid for your sins so that you would be saved through him. Jesus is the only way. The only way to have peace is through Jesus Christ. Amen. Accept Jesus into your heart and ask him to forgive your sins. I love you all. John 3 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 14 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

A respectful disagreement Mills
Mr. Mazen, As a friend of many Muslims in the United States, and as a follower of Jesus the Christ I must tell you that I am sincerely sorry for the man who burned the Qur'an in Florida. I am thankful that he did not go further and that he repented from continuing these acts. You said: "In a tilting of scales, it seems to be normal and acceptable to have a Church burn Quran Day but in the event of a Muslim burning Bible Day imagine the uproar and scandal." Please do not think that it seems to be normal and acceptable to burn the Qur'an. It is honestly a very sad thing. Thank You

Bible Burning John Muhammad
A book is a book- granted, burning a religious text is a grossly insulting thing to those who follow its teachings, but a book can be replaced- the religion should be in the hearts of its believers. As for the hypothetical 'what happens to Bibles in Saudi Arabia?' question, that is simply an attempt to stir up trouble. The fact of the matter is, if it is against Saudi law to display a Bible in public, or own one, or whatnot, that.is.the.law. Period. If a Christian group doesn't like the law, it can go somewhere else or take their chances with the Saudi police and courts. As for burning the Qur'an or the Torah or the Bible, I would never do such a thing out of spite; to do so is deliberately troublesome and not in keeping with the spirit of brotherhood we are supposed to be maintaining with our brothers and sisters of other faiths. But, in the end, what is being burned is only a book- books can be replaced very quickly. As I said earlier, faith is in the heart- not on paper. If burning paper reduces a person's faith in God, maybe they need to re-examine their faith. Brother and sister Muslims, do not let yourselves fall into that trap.

Burning bibles Anon
Islamic countries burn the bible every day - 100\'s of Islam extremist, murdering, biggoted scum have now killed internaional UN staff because one ignorant ,biggot in the US burned a Koran. If you have any belief in what is right and good then you must denounce this American idiot for burning the Koran as the majority of Westerners did, but round up and lock up for life the murdering, extremist, scum that killed these memebers of UN personel because their actions just turned thousands of millions against Islam and unless something is done a million Korans will burn, the biggots in the west will have won.

Burning Wholey
True believers would be offended by the burning of any holy book weather the Bible or Koran but reacting violently to such offense goes against the teaching of both. They have lost there way. We should prey for them not insult or attack them. Those who want to burn the Koran or Bible should read them first. The word of God is in both.

Faith and Questions for an Imam Dr. Burney
I was under the impression that the Muslim faith incorporated the Bible as parts in the Koran, If this is the case would you not say it would be radical to Burn this Holy book? Also this again shows the Muslim Faith is very confrontational, It is what drove the crusades. Mohammed himself as a man according to what I read in the Koran would make him a brown Archie Bunker. Maybe I need Enlightening on the Mohammed you pray too, would Martyr for, and hold as the Lords son. If anything I would say the Christians and the Muslims are climbing an uphill battle with the Jew Religion which runs the world and claims both or our Prophets as fictitious. I need the date of Mohammed's days so I can do more research. Also Muslim often use the word infidel to identify a lot of people such as myself who are not Muslim, the definition of "Infidel" is one without Religion, That is not the case with 90% of those who Muslims categorize as faithless infidels, We are Christians, not without Religion. If Mohammed was stuck in a room with only two other's, one Jew and one Christian who do you think Mohammed would conversation with the most? The Christian? and the Jew? Your answers help me understand the Brotherhoods thinking. These questions will do for now, but I will have more after reading the answers for these. Bless you. Dr. Burney
