MUSLIM VS MOSLEM..I think I will use MOSLEM from now on out....

So why do some people say Muslim and others like myself say Moslem. Well originally up until around 1992 Moslem was the word of choice for journalists and the the public.

Muslim was preferred by scholars and the like Then almost overnight everyone starts to use the word Muslim. Why?

The cult followers of Mohammed objected to the term Moslem and the weak journalists and the like switched to Muslim under pressure from Islamic groups.

Moslem and Muslim are two different spellings for the same word. But to the super sensibilities of the Moslem's the two words are very different during pronunciation.

Muslim in Arabic means "one who gives himself to God" and by therefore is by definition someone who adheres to Islam.

But Moslem in Arabic means "one who is evil and unjust" when the word is pronounced in English as Mozlem.

I will use the word with the truest meaning from now on out.......MOSLEM

Now the other interesting thing about the Moslems is they used to be called Mohammedans. But that is for another time...
