Understanding Islam In The Light of Sep. 11th Attack

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 this Jihad has been going on LONG before Israel and USA were even in the picture, we are currently in the 3rd jihad, the first made by the had of Mohammad the second by his direct followers when they took over north Africa and all of the middle east and got all the way to Spain! They had control of the Mediterranean sea which no Christian vessel could cross anymore, this sunk Europe into a deep economical disappear since they now had to travel by land (mucho more expensive endeavor, now to go from Italy to France they had to cross the alps) This also destroyed trade. There will never be peace until the islamists change their ways. Not every muslim is a terrorist, but every islamist is a terrorist, and every islamist is a muslim. Israel is the only country that is actively attacking these scum bags! Think about it.

I come not to bring peace but to bring a sword
Bible quote
+23 # Abd El-Massih 2011-09-08 17:38

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 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 .

"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."

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.

If christianity is the true religion why are you all doing all the things that will hurt yourselves(e.gD rinking liquor , smoking even having sex without marriage)

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.

Don't Muslims do these?

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.

Too much of anything is not good for you or your world. Moderation in all things will keep you from going off the deep end. Extremism = Crazy, no matter what the topic is.

Hi, thanks for the great information. I am using some info in my college critical reading and writing class!

Not all Muslims are good people, but at the same time, not all Christians are good people. This world needs to stop categorizing and labeling people because we are all uniquely different, no matter what we believe in.

I am glad that this was brought up. When people jump to conclusions and stereotype a group of people based on a few, people get hurt.

The fact that this website exists is a sign that people in the world are trying to help break through the stereotypes and prejudices toward Muslims.

1. Terrorism is above all murder. Murder is strictly forbidden in the Qur’an. Qur’an 6:151 says, “and do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” (i.e. murder is forbidden but the death penalty imposed by the state for a crime is permitted). 5:53 says, “… whoso kills a soul, unless it be for murder or for wreaking corruption in the land, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and he who saves a life, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.”

friends,do not just follow because you came to meet it or were born into it. find a conviction before you put your life in it. because one day,you cant blame anybody for your life's outcome. i wont kill to preserve my GOD,if He is indeed all powerful then let Him win. i am convinced both physically and spiritually that Jesus is Lord of all. and i don't need to kill to prove it.
