    Below is an excerpt from a statement/essay from Ibn Warraq, Islamic scholar and leading figure in Quranic criticism on how the U.S. and others are ignoring the true cause of Hasan's actions at Ft. Hood.

    I agree.
    It is schizophrenic to publish a mixed message at such times as this....... Either islam is good or islam is bad....... when viewed as a causative factor in events like this. It can't be both. To present it as such presents no clear message to either the community of islam or the community outside it. The treachery of islam wont change as long as people within and without make excuses and pretend it doesn't exists. Freedom to practice one's religion doesnot extend to covering or protecting events of cruelty and murder or self-destructive acts.

    Islam is a false religion. Worshipping a false/fake/non-existent god.
    It is fake.
    When people who believe this false faith do horrendous things to other people, my, what a great way to bring them to god.
    Mixed messages? How about, no message.

    There is a message which is; islam is false and it leads to destruction..... often in this world and definately in the next. This message must be loud and clear and events like this give justice and opportunity to proclaim it as it really is. If there is no message, there is no change.

    Which do you want?

    HUH?

    You believe in the true God, who sent His one and only Son, who takes away all our sins, or you don't.
    It is not the false god of islam who does these things.
    Maybe I misunderstood you. If I did not, then you are definitely on the wrong web-site.
    We believe in Jesus Christ here.

    I don't know if you misunderstand or if you have difficulty with reading.

    Jesus Christ is my savior and he completed his work which paid for my sins at calvary. He rose. He lives. He is my strength and I need him even more than I know and I love him which, even at my best, is still so feeble. I look forward to the day when I'm relieved of the bondage to this life and the veil, struggles, and appetites of this flesh to be with him. I rejoice that every day he is my blessing as well as my hope, and should I praise him for all that he is to me there should be no time left to complain or agitate over what is temporary and will become nothing. I answer you as seriously as I know how because I receive you as a brother in Christ and believe you are earnest in your question and not trying to be sarcastic.

    Both. I'm a cod-brain.
    I'm just so tired of seeing people try to pollute the Word of God that sometimes I just skim over the threads and really not read what the person is saying.
    This will stop.

    Please forgive me.
    I'm probably too harsh in this and in the other thread under politics.
    We both will do our best. I think each of us love and serve Jesus, the risen Lord and have good intentions.

    Let's not forget that Hasan was dressed in that Middle-Eastern garb much of the time.

    Here is a comment from a letter writer to the Vancouver Sun:
