A Democratic Islam?

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?

Submitted by Ilbert Phillips (United States), Apr 17, 2008 at 05:20

The basic premise of your article seems to be anything can happen and anyone can change? The premise either proves nothing or it proves too much. I am not aware of any other religion, at any point in history, where suicide bombers kill innocent men, women and children of its own faith as a means of converting the world to its point of view. I know that the Tamil tigers use suicide bombers and being born in 1941, I am aware of the Japanese bonzai suicide pilots,that atttacked military targets, usually ships during naval battles.
