I'll bite the bullet here. I am not here to challenge you but i just want to know how you feel about all these attacks on Christian churches by moslem terrorists. Do you feel grief? Sympathy? Or is it shame? Is there a disciplining group of muslim preachers who tried to pacify them? Is there any among you who would feel woah-woah-woah-my muslim brothers.. what is going on in here? I would like to share to you my experience though. I guess you have heard of the filipino cop who had killed chinese tourists in a bus. Those news shook the world and had our country blocklisted for a while from foreigners. If i may be honest, i am ashamed to have been a filipino because of one cop who had gone berserk. I couldnt look at my chinese clients in the eye because of that. There had been many investigations on that matter and i for one could say that the government has tried hard to look into the breaches for improvements in the system. Again, i would say i have felt shame but i am glad that there is this sense of accountability. Going back to topic, how do you feel... honestly....

I'm moeslem and try to answer your question. In Quran (our holy book) no verse allowed to kill non Moeslems who don't hate moeslem. To whom who kill, they should be punished and paid some money to the victim's family. We (Moeslem) also feel hurt because Christian, Jews, and other religion kill our brother in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, and other place by reason to fix the condition. In short, I disagree with Moeslem terrorist like i disagree with Cristian, Jews, and other religion for killing my brother.

Where you error you are labeling religions to be the ones killing muslims.. It's not religious people..Countries are at war because your country men some.. have blown up innocent people and continue to do so. WE are not trying to destroy a people..but a trend .. a mislead ideal..such as that which labels people of faith as being responsible for killing. You are wrong in your thinking.. no one is killing your brother in the name of religion. People are at war in the name of justice.. When people from Iraq and Afghanistan and other areas stop terrorizing people war will stop..

@littlefranciscan : ohh...so you're pointing to Moeslem that we've started a terrorism and your country deserved to attack our country? So is it a problem of religion or country? If the terrors came from Moeslem why your country destroy our country? Not all Moeslem did terrorism, but your country kill many people here though they just ordinary citizens. And did you know that who started the terrorism? it was coming from the west, they started killing people in Palestine or minimum they supported that action. So, if our brother got killed, would Moeslem keep no action? These war between moeslem and non moeslem will be last forever. But it happens for some specific people only (called terrorist). For me, as I'm a moeslem, I'll treat non Moeslem who don't hate and disturb us equally as Moeslem (this is stated in Quran). But not for them who disturb us.

Justice is quite hard to serve. I once had a topic about fairness and justice and it had been quite confusing to me still. Is it justice or misunderstanding?

Oh, for petes sake, that is just one MAN. he no longer represent the entire country when he made that choice. In my opinion, I have one life as a Filipino, and I don't intend to waste it being humiliated and not look on the foreigners eye because some people from hongkong made it big because they think they step on us since we have maids or other low class jobs in that country. I have no time feeling the same since WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW WE ARE NOT THE ROUGE POLICEMAN. Some Filipinos have done shame in their lives, i think we should look at this incident as a lesson not to repeat and Strive to be BE BETTER FILIPINOS on the Foreigners Eye instead. We have bad apples. let's do our best being a Good one. * You tell this to you're clients if they ever brought that issue: You are not the rogue cop, he was* The issue in the Muslim Attacks is a total different issue. because this is base on pure belief and some MISGUIDED people who i believe literally does not belong in the Muslim Religion as they are using some verses of Quran just to KILL or Harass women. they were some muslims who went against it and protest.

Well the question in here is for the Muslims and yet I would like to share my opinion on this. I do believe that our Muslim brothers don't like the word "terrorist" be linked to the word Muslim and of course Catholic, Buddhist and all the religion in the world don't like it also with their religion's name. But the fact that this evil doing is happening and most of the people involve on doing this are Muslims, we cannot blame people like me and Graceekwenk to mention the word "Muslim Terrorists". I do believe that not only the Muslims are capable of doing this terrorist act, but most of this terrorist act done by non-Muslims doesn't reflects their religion and never did they do it for the sake of their belief, unlike what most Muslim terrorist have done. I also watch that terrible incident in Manila where in a cop killed his hostages on cold blood. I guess the cop is a Christian but is it right to call him "Christian Terrorist", or a "Cop Terrorist". I do believe Muslims are good people, they are just misunderstood. But let us all remember killing people is never a teaching of Allah nor Buddha nor Christ. Allah Akbar!!! Buddha Bless Us!!! and Christ Bless us all.

Hi Graceekwenx, Great question! I am not a Muslim but from what I am reading in this discussion, my thoughts are that it is not about religion at all. I tend to think it is our governments that are creating and keeping the war going. I mean, really, we did wage war after the 9/11 attacks and a lot of innocent people did get killed. Can we blame them for their anger? And to this day, we still haven't gotten the guy they originally said they were after....Bin Laden!! How would we feel if we were them? And do they all realize that we are not our government? Our soldiers are over there doing what they are told to do and believing that what they are doing is a good thing...is it really and do we know for sure. It's not like our politicians are real honest with us. I don't know...I see both sides of this. As individuals, we don't want to be judged as the ones that killed their mother or child and likewise neither do they.

I am not a Moslem, but--if I were--it would be 'in a Buddhist way' ... i.e. I would see the cause behind jihad (dissenters-genocide, caused by the inability to accept that Our Father doesn't tell you everything), and would thus forgive the jihadis and keep to the right Islam path.
