i guess even the muslims, like us americans, get lost over the years and forget about what some of our "founding fathers" actually did or said.

so, why have muslims changed since back then?

In 628 C.E. Prophet Muhammad (s) granted a Charter of Privileges to the monks of St. Catherine Monastery in Mt. Sinai. It consisted of several clauses covering all aspects of human rights including such topics as the protection of Christians, freedom of worship and movement, freedom to appoint their own judges and to own and maintain their property, exemption from military service, and the right to protection in war.

you can read about the charter here...quite interesting...a far cry from what we hear today:
