This blog is written by a Christian living in the Middle East. My desire is to discuss Islam and Christianity in ways that will be helpful for people of the other religion.

I dont know whether to laugh or to freak out.Lets first start with the ''experts'' in the clip.1. The ''dispatches'' programThe ''radical imams'' have been interviewed and have shown the faults of the documentaryhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uo7-T63UEJEhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3_ZqeR27MgIf anyone finds this hard to believe I suggest they watch their shows live athttp://www.peacetv.tv/also see huda.tv2. Stephen GashHis organization, SIOE, has been run by Pamela Geller, who is described as '''relentlessly shrill and coarse in her broad-brush denunciations of Islam and makes preposterous claims, such as that President Obama is the "love child" of Malcolm X. She makes no pretense of being learned in Islamic studies,... Geller has mingled comfortably with European racists and fascists, spoken favorably of South African racists, defended Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic and denied the existence of Serbian concentration camps'''
Forced marriage is forbidden.Dont take my word for it. http://www.onislam.net/english/component/jvideodirect/?v=S2LdfQhQivSJqAs for honor killings'''''Experts have agreed that honor killings, which dominated headlines after the grisly family murder in Canada, are driven by cultural and tribal reasons and are not sanctioned by Islamic teachings."There is nothing in the Quran that justifies honor killings,” Taj Hargey, director of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford in England, told CNN. ''''''''http://www.onislam.net/english/news/global/455627-honor-killing-un-islamic-experts.htmlTo conclude, neither Muslims nor Islam pose a major threat to Europe''''Islamist terrorism is still perceived as being the biggest threat worldwide, despite the fact that the EU only faced one Islamist terrorist attack in 2008. This bomb attack took place in the UK…Separatist terrorism remains the terrorism area which affects the EU most.

Also, even if Islam was taking over Britain, why is that such a bad thing.''''Among the most commonly accepted reasons for low crime in Saudi society are harsh punishments, relatice homoneneity, economic prosperity, and most norably the way religions permeates all levels of society and culture''''Comparative Criminal Justice systemspage 87by------Harry R.

What about chopping off hands for stealing? Or gouging out an eye for making someone blind? Or how about all of the death penalties? More importantly, what about the fact that Islam is fielding an army to defend it's sovereignty? ALL other religions got out of the army business many centuries ago. I can see why many find Islam 'backward' and "medieval". And any 'religion' that has its leaders forming and leading combat units IS a THREAT.
Regarding the harsh punishmentsI recomend you look again at the quote I gaveHarsh punshments have been shown to be more correlated with lower crime rates. Here is another source“Most scholars attribute the low Saudi Arabian crime rate mainly to the strong influence of Islam in various spheres of life in Saudi society, particularly to the implementation of Shariah"Transnational and Comparative criminology, By Prof Sheptycki & Prof Wardak Page 94 My advice to all of us is to not judge things based on our feelings as the bible says"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."1 Thessalonians 5:21What army are you talking about?I have no idea what you are saying?
Abou Daoud, Too few people realize the rising danger that Europe is under from Islam.Here's an article I read only today which typifies the strategy of some Muslim groups, organizations and preachers:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/9875954/Muslim-preacher-urges-followers-to-claim-Jihad-Seekers-Allowance.htmlI'm a Middle Eastern Christian, somewhat your reverse. I spent last year in Britain, and the decline in your country's Christianity is evident and lamentable. Nevertheless, in spite of all this, I saw holdouts and I lived with people who believe and love and live together as communities. I am still in awe at the rich Christian heritage of Europe - (even now in its waning!). I've just come across your blog, but having gleaned its content, I believe you're saying some very insightful things about our region. God bless you. p.s. How can I get in touch with you?
I would not recomend you trust the media.They have been caught lying about Islam and Muslims beforehttp://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/debunked-zionist-and-islamophobic-libel-rape-epidemic-muslims-norwayhttp://www.csmonitor.com/World/Backchannels/2012/0430/Ahead-of-elections-Egypt-s-state-propaganda-machine-rolls-on Like the quotes I used above''''Depicting Islam as manifestly medieval, backward, and cruel is not new, as it has been going on in one form or another since the Israelis and Palestinians first locked horns. Recognizing that the propaganda that is being ground out in the mainstream media derives from that conflict, it is easy to understand why Muslims are persistently portrayed in negative terms.

I dont know much about him, but here is some things I foundMember of the Racial Equality Council in Swindon for and management committee member of the Al-Habib Islamic Educational and Cultural Centre in Swindon said."I travel regularly to Birmingham, Bristol and Reading where my children and grandchildren live. And I have never met anyone who knows or agrees with Choudary," he said, referring to the group leader.Nagdi, the Leicestershire Federation of Muslim Organizations spokesman, agrees."(Their number is ) small and insignificant,"
''''In many ways, the descriptions of Eurabiaparallel classic criticisms of Jews within anti-Semitism – ironic given that the fourframeworks identified here are tied up with unqualified support for the state ofIsrael, the last line of defence against Islamisation.The parallels with anti-Semitism are underlined forcefully by Matt Carr, whopoints out that Jews in Victorian Britain were thought to harbour a secret ambi-tion to subvert, dominate and possess. Carr also points out that, ‘the fear of culturaland racial extinction has a long pedigree in European history’, traceable back tothe ‘racial Darwinism of the nineteenth century, and articulated by writers suchas Count Joseph-Arthur de Gobineau, who argued that only races that maintainedtheir racial purity would survive’ – only, today, the Eurabia-ists substitute cultureand civilisation for race.'''''Liz Feketeexecutive director of the Institute of Race Relationshttp://rac.sagepub.com/content/53/3/30page 44
