You are being obtuse ...

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance
in response to reader comment: you have Zero idea about Islam

Submitted by kman (United States), Nov 28, 2008 at 20:15

I know there are "many Arabs who are Christians". Don't be so obtuse. That isn't anywhere near the point.

You say I know "zero" about Islam. That's a pretty big statement. I know the Muslims of the Quran. I knwo the various Muslims in my own country. I know the Muslims in many nations in the Middle East. I know the Muslims of Great Britain, Canada, and, again, the U.S. I know the Muslims across the expanse of Northern Africa, Pakistan, India (including the Hindus and Buddists), Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, and many other nations.

I know your vast ignorance and the multitude of personalities that dwell within Islam. I know American "Muslims" who buy into fashionable belief and Muslims that came here from the "old country". I know Muslims who are here as part of the double pronged effort on the behalf of radical Islam - those who probe deeply into the "discriminated against" minorities and those who work powerfully within Ameican mosques to get the "faithful" back on the track of "actual" Islam as laid out clearly in your Quran. I know of those who infest the dark tiny communities of radical and terrorist cells.

When you can point out in fact what I don't know about Islam, take a shot at it. When you approach my level of understanding and knowledge of Islam with anything close to who Jesus Christ was and is, then presume to lecture me on "what I know".
