A clear and succinct summary of the situation - thank you so much

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?

Submitted by Bob Jenks (United States), Apr 17, 2008 at 08:57

Thank you, sir, for this uniquely clear summary of what our moderate Muslim brothers are facing, and struggling to overcome, in order to bring their Islamic faith into the modern world.

Sharia law has no legitimate place in today's world, nor does the tribal mentality of the so-called "cradle of civilization" which gave us also Judaism and Christianity. God loves us all, even if we choose to climb the mountain by different paths with different guidelines, so long as those guidelines are based on tolerance and helping neighbors. (My personal opinion of course.)

We need to remain eternally vigilant against the aims of violent Jihadists who will stop at nothing to achieve their long term objectives. Only very aware moderate Muslims can ultimately bring them down to the ground, however, and neutralize them. (My personal opinion, again. See my site: http://bobjenks.com/terrorism.htm )

Thank you again for this great commentary.

Bob Jenks
