Resolved Question: Imam in Florida says
If you agree that Terry Jones does not represent Christians everywhere, can you also understand that terrorists who claim to be Muslims do not represent most followers of Islam?
Aren't Christianity and Islam both religions of peace? And the terrorists who are Muslims or Christians are simply criminals, and not the faces of their respective religions?
Or perhaps many of you think Terry Jones is correct, and is a good Christian and a fine American. Tell us why, please.
In the article, Imam Muhammad Musri, president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida states,
"I know he is not a man of faith. He's not a true Christian. He claims to be a pastor, but he is furthest from that title. The man is after fame." Waldo asks, "Yes, but how many Muslims will speak out against these Islamic extremists"
FYI, there are entire websites, created by Muslims, listing article after article Muslims have written to denounce extremism and terrorism done in the name of Islam. Start here: http://theamericanmuslim.org/tam.php/features/articles/muslim_voices_against_extremism_and_terrorism_2/ I was attempting to highlight the fact that it seems hard for many Christians to recognize that Muslims doing awful things "in the name of Islam" do not represent Islam, any more than than Pastor Jones represents Christianity. While many Muslims do believe that Jones and other Koran-burners ARE typical Christians, it's great to hear Islamic leaders like Imam Musri say NO, those are not true Christians. More Christian and Jewish leaders ought to follow the Imam's example and remind their congregations that Islam does not equal violence, and peaceful Muslims should not be lumped in with the Muslim extremists.
It's hard to choose best answer, but jehen wins for mentioning The Three Wise Guys. While this topic seems to belong in the R&S category, I think that if more religious leaders of different faiths worked to promote religious tolerance like the Wise Guys do, it would go a long way to resolving political problems that result from religious differences.

Resolved Question: Why do so many British
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Terry-Jones-Barbarians-Region-Import/dp/B000WVPXAE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345106682&sr=8-1 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Terry-Jones-Barbarians-Region-Import/dp/B000WVPXAE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345106682&sr=8-1 how his account of how the barbarians ransacked Rome differs from other historians?
why he has so many 5 star reviews on Amazon.com.uk...but on Amazon.com (USA version)...he is not nearly highly rated? Also, I checked the History Channels version of the Barbarians..and they had very high ratings on Amazon.com..but opposite of that on the Amazon.com.uk..instead reviewers were saying to get "Terry Jone's version"..but why? Who is he really?

Resolved Question: I know what Terry Jones
Ive asked this Question before I'm just trying to get more answers and opinions
I read they put a bounty on Terry Jones head, but I dont understand why dont Muslims just be like ok he's wrong for doing that and move on? Why is there always a need a bloodlusting over every little thing?
Why act so primitive?
Why act so barbaric?
Why cant you love thy enemies ignore what people do and move on?
Muslims say only bad Muslims(Taliban) want to kill. But I find that highly false by the whole country of Pakistan wanting to kill,behead,slaughter, murder, Terry Jones etc
People make fun and do cruel things about religion ALL THE TIME ok just IGNORE it and go about with your life and look towards brighter things...yet over every LITTLE thing most Muslims always got to LUST for someones BLOOD if they insult Islam
Why do they have to act to primitive? ITS 2011 why act so barbaric and always wanting to kill someone who Insults Islam.
Also Muslims except Obama to have stopped this? Why Would He? He's the president even though I disagree with what Terry Jones did. America is a country of FREE SPEECH. If America had the same rules of Pakistan,Afghanistan etc we would be chopping off hands all over the place
But Im just asking WHY DO MUSLIMS ALWAYS GOT TO BLOODLUST?
