Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: do my homework?

Submitted by TC (United Kingdom), Jan 14, 2009 at 23:59

you clearly are very passionate about Islam, and it is undeniable that the time you devoted studying this religion is no little, and yet despite your age and knowledge your wisdom seems imprisoned to the the prism of your own beliefs, lets agree with you that Islam is evil and that all Muslims must therefore be little agents of the devil working hard to spread wickedness, terror and crime in every part of our world, my question is and now what? where do we go from this point? what is the vision you try to project?

let me outline to you that its because of patterns of thoughts similar to yours that the world witnesses all terrible crimes, it because of the same philosophy that vilifies the other, humanity had to suffer the holocaust and genocides, it is because of the same ideas that there is war in 49 countries as you mentioned, and it is also the same ideas that terrorists have in their minds when they strike, ending innocent lives. its the same ideas both sides of every argument poses. the same words always used to describe the other barbaric, inhuman, evil, satanic. the same actions claimed on the other raper, murderer, burner and thief. the same fuel used by both sides to keep the war machine moving.

I defy to take part in this insanity that has cursed humanity throughout all ages, and I say it is about time to remove our filters and try to see good just like we have been seeing bad in the other, it is time to recognize that humans are imperfect and so are their believes and therefore believes shouldn't be the cause of our arguments but rather a reason for a discussion since we can't see the faults in our own beliefs we need the other aware us of them and may be then we can improve ourselves and perhaps serve better humanity.
