    And thank you for giving me permission to continue thinking what I want, but it's unnecessary. It's already recognized as a human right as laid out in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. This protects people's right to believe whatever the hell they want to believe and to express that belief, regardless of whether someone else thinks it's delusional, strange, unbelievable or just idiotic.

    You'll also be glad to know it protects your right to think it appropriate to use the death of more than 6 million human beings to try to score some cheap points in the god/no god debate. What an amazing thing freedom of thought and belief is.

    [2:194] And fight them until there is no persecution, and religion is freely professed for Allah. But if they desist, then remember that no hostility is allowed except against the aggressors.

    http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/sh … ;verse=187

    1.    The Meccans were intolerant people; they did not allow freedom of religion.
    2.    The persecuted Muhammad and his followers and did not allow them freedom of choice of faith or religion they thought truthful. The Meccans tortured them and burnt their houses.
    3.    When the peaceful Muslims migrated from Mecca even then the Meccans pursued them and denied them freedom of choice of the religion.
    4.    The Meccans were the aggressors evidently.

    So Muhammad and his followers had to fight back for their existence and win back freedom of choice of religion.

    I am sure the American people are lovers of freedom; they would uphold the stance of Muhammad and his followers.

    This is what the Americans believe; it is the only civil way out there.

    Who agrees?

      so by your comitment to freedom as above, then Muhammed was a Freedom fighter?

      a profit or freedom fighter????? make up your mind Parr!

      you could cast Taliban, Al-quida, and the PLO in this light, but would you clasify Muhammed as same? 

      This should show that you you are changing the aspects of his, Muhammads'.  personality, to fit any situation or result that happened.

      This is why I say Islam is not different than any other Religion here in US, both do the same.

      Both beliefs Change the personality of the Hero to fit any situation that happened!   To explain any doubt away?   No good, and no truth to it!

      If both are to be real, then they had a personality and a purpose, not an ever changing two way make-up. That is if they were honest- spiritual and formal- Men as is told.     hmmm...

        Muhammad was much more than a freedom fighter; his real goal was much more than that; to guide humanity to the Creator-God Allah YHWH and he did uphold this primary goal always.

        He could not be deterred from this goal by anyone.

      All you seem to be saying is your freedom to believe whatever god you want only goes as far as it is your god they believe. 

      Because your belief enables you to persecute aggressor ie: people that don't believe the same things as you, then you are suggesting that the law is only good for your belief and it nullifies all others in the event someone disagree, kill them.

      That's what I see you saying here.

    Muhammad never occupied or wanted to occupy any territory; when he had to enter Mecca to restore peace and freedom of religion he did not stay there for long, he returned to Medina and remained devouted to his lasting goals assigned to him by the Creator-God Allah YHWH.

    Oh please!!! Every time a thread is opened and somebody poses a question and christians answer it... nothing directed towards your religion whatsoever... simply something using the name "Jesus" or the "bible" you always insist on informing them that Jesus was just a prophet(not the son of God) and The bible is just for historical purposes and has no real value then you go on to tell how the qu'ran is the true word from Allah! You've even went as far as to tell me to change my comment because Jesus was only a prophet!

    I'm sorry but that is asking for trouble! To constantly tell Christians they are wrong... and tell them their bible is wrong but yours is correct!

    Then you come in here and say everyone has the right to believe whatever they want to believe!

    That is no peaceful! And it surely is not pushing "everyone's rights"!

    It's the same as your Muhammad forcing his men to attack the Meccans when they clearly did not want to go! He told them Allah told them to! And it was because they did not believe him to be a true prophet! So he forced his way in and forced the Qu'ran upon them! That is freedom of beliefs! And it is a true reflection of what you are pulling here! Deceptive!

    God Bless you Parrasurrey but you are really contradicting yourself in every way humanly possible! Go back and read your own posts or should I go copy and paste some of them???

          Jesus did intend to fight and told his disciples to sell their clothes and use the money to buy  SWORDS (Luke 22:35-38).

          Perhaps from his experience with his followers; they preferred sleeping rather than praying for Jesus; Jesus knew it was exepcting too much from them.

          The intention of Jesus seems to be there, perhaps.

          Nevertheless; the Christians did take up the sword and had been fighting, as they say against the teachings of Jesus, and for that purpose they made a new law by the name "Just war Doctrine".

                    Paarsurry I thought you had studied the Bible? I ask this because apparently you do not know what this scriptures means! Jesus taught against fighting! He told Peter to put away his sword because if you live by the sword you die by the sword!

                    You have taken scripture that you do NOT understand and twisted it to make Muhammad look equal to Jesus! And a bad attempt at that! .. no where in the Bible did jesus go to war or kill anyone or have anyone killed! He was truly peaceful! Can you quote from anywhere in the Bible otherwise??? Please post any verse that you find from the Bible that states Jesus led his disciples to war, or he killed anyone? Or Anywhere where Jesus told his disciples to kill or go to war???

                    This verse you are quoting does not literally mean a sword! I will let you study and figure out the rest!

                  Christian Jesus is mythical carved from air by Paul and the Church; it has two faces, maybe three or more; one is PreachingJesus like  "if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also" (Matt. 5:39)." and the other AgressiveJesus of the "Just War Doctrine" of the Christians; it could drop even Athomic Bombs declaring them "Just Bombs".

                  The real Jesus of Quran is peaceful and rational, a brother of Krishna, Moses and Muhammad.

                  Muhammad's life is crystal clear and recorded in Quran with every necessary detail in it; he is peaceful, defensive and rational; doing everything at the appropriate time and occasion. Muhammad is the real model of an examplary real man of all times and places.

                    Paarsurrey you are depending on the qu'ran which was written by a self proclaimed prophet! Can you answer me this??? Muhammad had 14 wives after his first wife died, correct? Why does Muhammad get 14 wives but his followers only are allowed 1 to 4 as he wrote in the qu'ran! So he was not practicing what he preaced????

                    And can you answer this for me? Didn't Muhammad marry a six year old little girl? Then when the little girl turned 9 he has sex with her? Answer this!

                    If Muhammad has sex with a 9 yr old little girl he is nothing more than a sexual predator of chidren!

                    And you tell christians their Jesus is a myth carved from Paul??? I believe the Qu'ran was a bunch of writings from a man who used "prophet" statis for sexual and other desires! If your authority comes from Muhammad's babblings then you have none!

                    Answer my questions above!

                    Thank you!

      Good one Paarsurrey! However, the Qu'ran tells a different story than you! Tell us of the other wars? The ones where Muhammad pushed into their land and pushed war! Tell us of those wars!

      The Meccans didn't want to worship a fake God or listen to a false prophet and this angered Muhammad! So he waged war! It had nothing to do with "freedom of religion"! It had to do with Mumahhad's way or death... or pay them a tax! When I read the tax part in the Qu'ran it really showed what really was at the heart of Muhammad! It's about religon and Allah but if you pay a tax then you are protected! That's a man talking...not a God!

      So.. tell us of the other wars! We are listening!

              I wouldn't go that far to call him Hitler! Hitler killed many, many people! Muhammad killed but I believe for different reasons... booty and women! His religious views had underlying reasons... he wanted to be leader and place himself in a "god-like" state... which he did! If you read the Qu'ran you will find he puts himself right up there with allah! Many times if it says something about not doing something against Allah it will have Allah or his prophet(meaning Muhammad)! Although him and HItler do have a lot of things alike!

                  I'm sure you can probably find it online... just be sure you find a nonbiased one that hasn't been changed to suit the fancy of people who want Muhammad to be peaceful!!

                  If you get  a hard copy at the Library you will be sure it's accurate!

    I believe there is no problem with beliving what you want and expressing that belief to others, even if it might hurt some feelings.  Having said this: I don't believe destroying the lifes of embassy officials can be justified in any way by these so called followers of Mohammed.

    I believe in speaking your mind and belief, so long as it is not disrespectfully intended as a devisive means to cause a reaction in others.  Obviously that is what occurred over this film, but dialog is the answer.  Killing over ones opinion is just plan stupis and cannot be supported in any way.
