    I believe one of the few good ideas that America has is religious tolerance (even though it isn't truly practiced). The truth is that religion divides as much as it unites, and Africa is all the proof of that anyone will ever need.

    I agree.

    One of the best things about the West is it's religious tolerance.

    Unfortunately most people of color around the world aren't so tolerant with eachother, especially those who don't go along with the views of the majority.

    This is the case whether your talking about religion, politics, social events..ect....

    We just have a problem in general respecting other people's views and opinions that differ from ours.

    We can argue about history all day and night.

    We can argue about who is oppressing who all day and night.

    We can argue about which religion or "non-religion" is the best.

    .....but let us first separate TRUTH from FALSEHOOD.

    The article above begins with this statement:

    "The Koran commands Moslems to wage jihad for the forcible conversion of the whole world. Africa, with its generally low level of civilizational development and corresponding lack of the power to defend itself, has been singularly vulnerable to these aggressions, particularly after the hiatus imposed by colonialism (whatever its drawbacks)."

    Hmmm....

    But in the Koran itself, in Surah 2:157 we read:

    "There is no compulsion in religion. Surely the right has become distinct from error; so whosoever refuses to be led by those who transgress and believes in Allah, has surely grasped a strong handle which knows no breaking. And Allah is All-Hearing. All-Knowing. "

    So now if an article STARTS OFF lying or spreading misinformation.....what does that say about the rest of it?

    Let us first deal in truth and accuracy before we let our emotions and what we THINK we know about history cloud our reasoning.

    I also noticed something else about the VERY FIRST STATMENT of this article that lies on the Koran.


    "The Koran commands Moslems to wage jihad for the forcible conversion of the whole world. Africa, with its generally low level of civilizational development and corresponding lack of the power to defend itself,"

    What does the author mean buy "generally LOW LEVEL of civilizational development"?

    Is this a more articulate way of saying that Africa lacks the level of civilization the rest of the world has?


    Well, you can take a look at the author Mr. Trifkovic:

    ...and you make up your own mind.

    If Islam is so tolerant, why are there no other religions allowed in Muslim Countries. like Saudi Arabia

    Nice try by trying to throw the baby out with the bath water. You say his opening statement is a lie huh. Is this also a lie:

    http://www.secularislam.org/jihad/subjects.htm



    You try to discredit the validity of the article without being able to discredit all of it's references. This is what the sahu Ralf would do lol

    How interesting.

    Here you go family.

    Africa has been Under-developed by European and Asian incursions, . This is your so called LOW LEVEL of civilizational development.

    You talk about Muslims in Africa doing so well, why have YOU and other Muslims been so silent about the Corruption of your fellow Muslims in Africa?

    Who cares if the author is white, prove him wrong. Line by line tell us what he says is untrue.

    Like I said, let us first deal with TRUTH.

    I already caught him in one lie CLAIMING the Koran orders Muslims to convert the entire world through Jihad when the Koran says just the opposite.

    Now whether or not you agree with the Koran is one thing, but to LIE and say something is in it that isn't, transends all religious and ethical boundaries.


    Besides.....

    If a white man started off a conversation with you saying "Africa already has a low level of civilization"......would you believe or even listen to anything else he had to say?


    That's 2 STRIKES!

    I'll be back later on to find the third strick and take him out...lol.
