To Jason and all those who are questioning if Islam is the Religion of Peace

Reader comment on item: Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad
in response to reader comment: The Religion of Peace? HA!

Submitted by A (Canada), Apr 2, 2008 at 17:44

Islam does not order to invade or kill. However, Islam does ask to fight against invaders (Iraq, Palestine, etc.). Islam orders us to treat people of other religions in the same way as we treat Muslims, as long as these don't attack us. Do you want to know why Muslims (and many other people in Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa) don't like Americans? Simply look at the recent history. The US has always openly supported Israel in all means, including direct military intervention in 1973. The US destroyed a country with 4000 years of civilization (Iraq), raped its women, killed its children, and robbed its fortunes (including oil).

You want more, ask Europeans about arrogant US attitudes, whether this is in environment protection issues (Kyoto protocol, human rights issues, colonialism, immunity to "US peacekeepers" who rape women in Japan, Korea, Bosnia, and Europe (in addition to Iraq, Vietnam, and of course).

Can you explain to me what the American "civilization" is about? Macdonalds, Marlboro, huge cars, Playboy, ExxonMobil, etc. Do you want more ...?
