A Child Sees With Childish Eyes

Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: So is it creation or is it Zuhuur? That is the question!

For those who read the book with a child's eyes a childish answer must suffice. Your question is that of a child and it has been a long time since I have had to answer a child's questions about the universe. You walk upon the way of the Apikoros. I have no words then. Let them think what they will so long as they leave me alone.

LOGIC? Logic is a tool like any other. When put to a proper constructive use it may serve well but it can be made to serve an evil purpose as well. It is only quite logical that the Muslim should try to kill or to convert the infidel since his basic premise is that the infidel is base and evil and in order to protect himself he must eliminate all that is not Islam.. Once upon a time the Christians thought the same way, some still do. They're still trying to convert us only they don't call it that any longer What they really want is to steal our souls and replace them with something else entirely. That is the meaning of conversion. They want to destroy the traditions and memories that make us who we are. They want to lobotomize us but we are not fooled by their smiles and glad hands. They cannot tolerate that we are a nation apart from them and will remain so.

If this is about the meaning of an Arabic word then WHY do you bother me with foolish Greek questions?
