it is the honor that is so important

Reader comment on item: Denial: A River in Egypt

Submitted by phil Greend (Canada), Aug 2, 2007 at 21:02

There is in the muslim culture a belief that honor is the most important thing above all else.

This total fixation on ones honor or family honor or the honor of islam its self has led to wrongness and pain in muslim countries. Everything from honor killings to the belief that radical muslims have , that Israel must be retaken because it was once under muslim control therefore it is the property of islam and allah.

Pride goeth' before a fall. The people under radical islam have fallen. They live a life that is not as good as it could have been. There is oppression with the islamofacists, a total lack of free speech and thought.

. This false pride blinds the radical islamists to the truth and sadly lies reproduce themselves over and over again. To the extent that people who don't hear the truth simply believe the lie.

The good muslims must expose the lying muslims at each and every turn, if there is to be a postive islamic culture.
