Islamism is not

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
in response to reader comment: ..... after you've already swallowed the Koran

Submitted by Ahmed (United States), Sep 13, 2008 at 18:04

Well, First let me give you the definiton of Islamism. Islamism simply means following the very message of the Holy Quran and the Statements of the Prophet Muhmmed. It is not about violence, nor is it about murder. I don't understand why the West want to westernize the Muslim World by force and then they talk vehemently about the respect of others and their beliefs.

Again, I hate terrorism and I condemn all those barbaric atrocities. But what I don't agree with and can't swallow is listing the former South African president as a terrorist by America. What does that tell you, folk? Listing any Islamic organization as a terrorist organization meanwhile America is slaughtering the Iraqis for oil and noone can utter a word. What I don't agree with is labeling every Muslim woman who obeyed her GOD by dressing modestly as a backward. Noone can talk about American atrocities in Japan which were more recent than the Holocaust which is still the talk of the hour.
