It would be something like (1) appeasing/ pandering/ apologizing, (2) scathing letters, (3) lawyers, lawyers, lawyers, and lots of them. Smells like rank cowardice and hypocrisy to us, given realities on the ground in Iraq. Do you Episcognostics ever ask yourselves WHY people like that get along with people like you?

Fear Allah Almighty God the World Greatest Most High Exalted Creator & Ruler of the Universe. Who will destroy all counties & nations that will not worship Him only, showing Superior {Power & Strength} the All-powerful Lord God? Who has no son name Jesus or no wife name Mary. And it is a sin to say so. Will you not take heed? To Allah alone is true worship due. He alone is worthy of exalting to the highest highs of glory, honor and praise. It is “Allah” who warns you all before destruction (to repent) and fear His exalted (Power). Or be destroy by Him with: Fires and Smoke, Winds, Thunderstorms and Flooding, Mud, Snow and Hailstorms, Earthquakes, Tornados & Hurricanes and many others destructions by Lord God. Allah, let misery & misfortune falls on those that will not worship Him only.
