Stop fooling the people.

Why are you fooling the people with this stupid presentation - 'JUST FOR YOUR INFORMATION".
None of these question raised by unknown German Scholar leads to an answer as MUSLIMS. (Would appreciate if you could mention a source if it does)
Muslims were never part of these heinious strategies..

Just for your information

I like the answer of this German Scholar when he was asked about terrorism and Islam: He said:

• Who started the First World War, which killed 37 million and injured 22, 379, 053 that includes 7 million civilians? Muslims?

• Who started the Second World War, which killed over 60 million, which was over 2.5% of the world population? Muslims?

• Who killed about 20 million of Aborigines in Australia? Muslims?
• Who drop the nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which killed 166,000 people in Hiroshima and 80,000 in Nagasaki? Muslims?

• Who killed more than 100 million Red Indians in North America? Muslims?
• Who killed more than 50 million Indian in South America? Muslims?
• Who took about 180 million African people as slaves and when 88% of them died, threw them into the Atlantic Ocean? Muslims?

• Who invaded Iraq, Afghanistan killing over 135,000 Civilians? Muslims?

No: They weren’t Muslims! First of all, you have to define terrorism properly…. If a non-Muslim does something bad… it is crime. But if a Muslim commits the same, he is a terrorist. So first remove the double standard… then come to the point.
