Reader comment on item: Is the Middle East "Freer, More Hopeful, and More Promising"?
in response to reader comment: We should fear ALL MUSLIMS!

Submitted by Raul Alvaro Fraser (Spain), Dec 10, 2008 at 18:44

A few decades ago in Australia there was a deep "paranoia" about the "Japs" in even after the war, now some are afraid of the "Muslims"? I guess there is an answer to all your thoughts, and I am sure this one is not in the Bible. (well, there is always an answer to ANYthing, but we could have wars on how to "interpret" truths) You say, "those inmigrants who come from who knows where should be screened for diseases before entering our shores"... well, you just said what a poor Australian aborigene would have said about us (I am also Australian) 2 centuries ago. That same aborigenee would have been tried to be converted to Christianity, and probably later died of diseases brought from Europe. Or just shot. Now, that really DID happen in recent history and near you. DonĀ“t you worry about Persians. Read another book! Try 'The Kite Runner' by Khaled Hosseini Words should do you no harm.
