    You don't have to understand the Koran to make sense of their religion but you do have to understand each Muslim. Most will take revenge from someone who would put down their prophet on anyone who does not share in their faith. These people think that their prophet is the one who sits on the right hand of God when the fact is the devil trying to make up from his sin to overpower God went to Mohammed and came up with a new religion to glorify God. Well his appearance to Mohammed has given us a bunch of maniacs who will fight and kill if anyone has anything negative to say about their prophet. This kind of religious belief is not from God but the devil! When Jesus died all of God's work for salvation was complete and there was and is no need for another prophet. Zechariah was the last not Mohammed!

    Islam not violent? The Qur'aan in Surah 5:51 says "Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends. Surah 9:17 says "It ill becomes the idolators (that is non-muslims) to visit the mosques of god. And then Surah 9:27 says: Fight against such as those to whom the scriptures were given (again Jews and Christians) until they pay tribute out of hand and are UTTERLY SUBDUED. This last verse sounds kind of violent to me. Be aware of Sharia Law!

    Hi Randi:
    Americans must never ever anything about any movie or alcohol to any muslim. These are sins in Islam religion. People never change. Egypt is backward. Be careful. When you see the news, people are in the streets. This means revolution. It means trouble. Be extra cautious.

    Edsel: Your comment is exactly what I have been trying to understand! The tidbits of information you mention from the Qu'ran, only gives evidence, that these people are religious fanatics! While I support MOST people's right to accept their own religion, Muslims are different! They don't ask for understanding or respect, they DEMAND IT! And watch out if you have anything negative to say about it! 1.5 Billion Muslims in the world, YET, we continually hear that these "acts or terrorism" are from only a FEW! OK, so where are the MAJORITY of Muslims, yelling, screaming, that the acts of the few and NOT in following with the writings of the Qu'ran Their religious leaders obviously SUPPORT acts of Killing & Terror as they say NOTHING against it!
