Submitted by Larry B. (United States), Oct 18, 2008 at 22:39

Dear Marwan, I do not know of any one or Govts. that are actively (punishing muslims), rather it is muslims who are punishing what they call infidels etc. It is easy to place all the blame on wahabism as the root of islam fanatiscism, but, are not these schools , not named wahabist, found in pakistan, libya, lebenon, in palestinian territories?? Do they not teach and preach death and destruction to any who do not believe as they do? Are not these the people who frequent mosques to celebrate horrific acts of violence done to innocent peoples around the world?

Is all of collective islam, or rather the muslim people unable to curb thier own? No! The news are replete with hoards of muslims running hell bent for revenge at the slightes percieved wrong against thier religion. How vain!, How weak! Is the rest of the free world to sit by passively while the (extremists) blow them up and kill them ? All for the sake of satisfying a blood-thirsty doctrinal mind set of an archaic religion withot claim to spiritual validity other than the ramblings of an obviously deluded prophet?

No, Marwan, I submit that it is all of islam, or muslims that are supporting the pillar of terrorism by silently voicing your approval by not speaking out against those evil acts. But then to do so in your religion would be a self proclamation of being an infidel. Very devisive religion isn't it? Dont thing outside of the box, or you will be branded the enemy.

No one is punishing muslims! But, everyone is judging islam and muslims by thier deeds, and I do not blame only the wahabists, but every muslim who passively sits by and watches these daily events of terrorism with your catch-all phrase of inchalla, God willing!

To EVERY MAN AND WOMAN has been given the knowledge between right and wrong, good and evil. It is islam and muslims who punish muslims. Peace.

Submitting....
