in response to reader comment: wrong

Submitted by donvan (United States), Jun 29, 2007 at 08:45

thank you for your response. Please allow me to explain:

neither I nor the people I know "Hate " people who call themselves "Muslims". However people believe what they are taught by family and associates. Muslims associate with others who share the belief in islam. Islam has a very violent and hostile componet to it, as we have seen and continue to see in countries around the world. Consequently, non Muslims struggle with the reality that with "Muslims" the more "Religious" they are the more likely they are to advocate, or actually take aggressive, albeit cowardly, action.

Car bombs, suicide, serial murder, murder suicide, beheadings of captives,destruction and violence. All justified in the name of some god that only they know, in the name of Al Lah. The message of Muhammed is : to get to paradise, kill non muslims. You can see why this might upset some non muslims. Muslim have no more rights than non Muslims. Yet any act, no matter how terrible , is justified simply by saying that Al Lah wills it. These are evil people who will kill muslims and non muslims because its "Al Lahs" will. Yet Muslim are and have been content to let the most evil among them to commit these acts in their name.
