Reader comment on item: [Fixing] Islam's Image Problem

Submitted by p.vanderveld (Netherlands), Sep 5, 2007 at 07:09

Islam should step out of it's role of victim. Moderate Islamics must speak out against violence. It is high time that Islam matures into a religion where introspection is allowed and tolerance. Respect for other people, believers or other becomes te bottom line. As for suicide bombers, no virgins in paradise for them because the Quran denies entry into paradise to those who choose the time of their own death. Poor soul that blows him/herself up . They are the misled victims of politically motivated power seekers with no religious motivation. In human history, religion has so often been used for political games that if i were God I would turn my back on humankind. Fortunately He does not do this because He is greater than us. He has more love than us. He is a God of life, not of death.
