MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

Reader comment on item: Offer: $1 million for Finding "Jerusalem" in the Koran
in response to reader comment: Jerusalem in Koran

Submitted by alhagie (United States), Dec 7, 2007 at 15:12

I keep wondering what we muslims are, what we want to be and what we shall become? I no longer have the childhood pride I used to have back in my village in Bassori for being created by Allah a muslim. Now all I see in Islam (Na Uthu Bilah) is terror and intimidation of everyone. When muslims feel otherwise and criticize the way people act in the name of Islam some arrogant Imam in Tehran passes a crazy Fatwa to kill them. This is sure going to change. I live and work in the USA and my job requires touching pork all day . I felt like I am not clean to do my prayers at work but another muslim who works with me keeps making me feel uncomfortable by quoting all kinds of hadith against delaying prayers.

Now I feel like Ayan Hirsi Ali. I think she has a point that Islam is a terrorist religion. Stop the terror and lets live our live in peace. There is too much ado about nothing in Islam. Lets help one another make better life than jump on each others throat. If anybody wants to kill me for saying this I am willing to die. But this madness must stop.
