I am not pointing the finger at Muslims here. I am not suggesting that they are any more to blame for terrorism than any other religion (look at history, its all bloody Christians). However, the point in discussion is Islam, and I am asking you, as someone who knows about their religion a great deal more than myself, what you think causes unrest and anger at the Western World. To the best of my knowledge you have a great deal to be angry about. I am not saying that all of you are angry or hate filled, but I you cannot deny that a minority, at least, dislike the West. I will tell you now, a lot of British people dislike Muslims, mainly because of a lack of understanding.

Dialogue can solve much. That is what I am trying to instigate here. A discussion. I am not trying to point the finger or incite racial hatred. I appreciate that you may want to defend your beliefs, but you must understand, from me at least, they are not being attacked.

Your point was quite clear Moshei, but Mezian seems to have missed it. He is probably, and understandably, a bit sensitive on the subject.
he seems like a pretty reasonable bloke though, so hopefully this will be a lively discussion. I'm quite looking forward to the answers to the questions you are asking.

Oh my :) Hey people... lets calm down a bit and seek some reasonable ground to tackle this issue... first of all; is it about misunderstanding of Islam itself? or a matter of generalization where good muslims are drown in the bad and cruel deeds of others who claim to be muslims? or a matter of dislike to the basis and rituals of Islam itself which is completely a matter of one's choice as any other religion?

These are main points we have to identify and settle our talk about and I guess there is no idea of misunderstanding between us here as a community of "Quotations page" because simply we are representatives of our nations and countries ... if we are to debate and fight then no need to blame our extenstions representing our people, families, relatives...etc.

I believe we are here to discuss without any sensitivity all matters since we adhere to decency and care to others' feelings, thinking and beliefs.
Islam does not need me or you or whoever to defend it ... it stands by it's own since many past centuries and still a fresh subject of discussions ... It proved its solid basis since a very long time until our current moments and if it is fragile and nonesense it would have evaporaized and vanished immediately. So what I care about is not a mere and naive defending either to Islam or to myself but I need to prove to myself first am I being a trustworthy person to carry the real message and spread it so justly not by forcing but by being a true human being cause Islam means peace and I believe that this is the best and first message to refect about this great religion.

Kindly, lets be interested to share one others' thoughts and feelings and forget all about misunderstandings and vacant debates.

Peace all....

Libra.

I think of this as less of a debate as a chance to learn from Mezian. I think he took my questions the wrong way. I hope he comes back and we can continue this conversation.

Hello, welcome back mate. We know you won't know everything. We're just curious and want to pick your brains.

What do you think about Saddam Hussein's hanging by the way? (Straight in with the questions- sorry)

I'm glad to 'see' you as well, I look forward to learning something of Islam from a true insider. Moshei's question was to be mine as well.

I think we probably knew that.

I'm asking mezian what his views are. I don't have the opportunity to talk to many people who live in Morroco, so I am going to take advantage of the situation and ask him his views. I know what some young people in the UK think. If I don't know something I'm going to ask. I'm not going be ignorant to it, as you consistently paint me.

Good call Moshei, I thought the 'by the way' had said it.
I hope you don't think I'm at odds with you?
