In my humble opinion, this is the most well thought out video ever made against Islam. The producers, the writers and the directors have very expertly questioned Islam and raised some very intelligent objections. All makers of the documentary and the participants deserve full marks and even congratulations.
Consultation with many friends has led us to the decision that the Truth must be told in all honesty and errors in the above presentation gently pointed out.
As we will show, this video, at times, rightly objects to Muslim behavior. Other than that, it is a conglomerate of misquotations, mistranslations, subtle distortions, even blatant falsehood and fabricated accounts of history and Hadith turning it into a crafty propaganda. Many of the fallacies in the video could simply be the result of plain ignorance and innocent misunderstandings. The ancient Muslim clergy, and not CNN or Quixotic, are responsible for some of the fabricated history and Hadith alluded to above.
THE OBJECTIVE of our rebuttal is not response for the sake of response or to incite any argumentation. We wish to educate ourselves, Muslims and non-Muslims, and even the makers of the above video.
