Understanding Islam In The Light of Sep. 11th Attack
Three Types Of Muslims
Islam is a religion of intellectual censorship
All Pages

World Trade Center AttackThe barbaric, horrific terrorist attacks on Tuesday, September 11, 2001 on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, DC have caused every American to ask why did it happen? Who did it? And why do they hate us?

The investigation of the CIA and FBI has concluded that the attackers were Muslims. Does that mean that every Muslim is a terrorist? By no means. There are many decent Muslims. But while many news commentators and politicians are proclaiming that Islam is a peace-loving religion others are warning of Islamic Jihad, or Holy War.

These conflicting descriptions of Islam can be explained by examining the three types of Muslims: Secularists, Moderates, and Fundamentalists. The Quran the holy book of Islam, is used by each group to justify their way of thinking.

They are wahabbi Muslims from Saudi they did it to draw attention to the thousands of Palestinians forced from their homes /killed by Israelis, backed by USA. If USA stops supporting Israel you'll get peace. Nothing to do with religion.

Emma,

You miss-quoted the Bible. Please quote the whole passage and don't yank verses out of context. This is verse from Matthew 10:34 - here is the passage where the Lord Jesus Christ tells His followers to follow Him and not put anyone before Him:
10: 34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

This website has helped me much to understand islam and the spirit behind it
It is a pity that only very limited people know and have ever visited it. This website along with www.answering-islam.org must be spread widely everywhere especially to Moslem people in moslem countries so that they may know the truth. From now on you must make a strategic plan to make the sites be visited my as many people from all over the world as posible. If so far only visited by a merely few thousands now set a goal for hundreds of thousands visitors. God bless you .

Um Whabbis are religious, Saudi Arabia is a theocracy based on Islam. The Muslims have expelled more Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, Bahai, etc from countries combined than all of the inflated numbers of the 800,000 Palestian refugees - they are the only refugees who count their descendants as refugees. Imagine the grandchildren of 12 million Germans expelled from Prussia during WWII or grandchildren of Americans who came to Elis Island calling themselves refugees. Asking Christians and Jews not to support Israel is like asking Muslims to abolish Mekkah and Medhina. Jordan is Palestine - 80% of the population is Palestinian, so is the queen.

We are not, Zahra. Please do not look at Hollywood and the "West" and think that is what Christians do. Simply put, it is not.

For Women,
Is it right and just to show off your skin to all men when you go out ?
Is that right and for you Christians who's your God then ? Jesus ? You have really gone astray ... :-|

Zahra, I am a woman who lives in the "west" and I do not "show off" my skin to men when I go out. God in the Bible tells me to dress modestly, and because I want to please Him I clothe myself well. I live for God, not man. God is One God. Through the Bible, He shows us who He is and reveals aspects of His character. He is often called "Father" because He loves, guides, cares for, protects, and desires a relationship with us. We see His great love when He came to the earth, called Himself Jesus, lived the perfect life we could never live and took our punishment for sin. He rose from the dead, proving He is God and that the punishment for sin has been taken away if we believe in what He has done. Jesus and God are one and the same. When we believe in Him and what He has done, He puts his Spirit inside us so we may be directed of and lead by Him. There are no saints and there is no confusion. God is the Creator, Sustainer, Father, Savior, and Spirit who we worship.
