Thank you, Abdullah

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: HOLY WAR

Submitted by Jeff (United States), Apr 6, 2009 at 21:47

Here in the USA, we have Muslim groups like CAIR and the MAS that constantly try to convince us that, amidst a stream of bombings, beheadings and honor killings, Islam is the "religion of peace." And we keep hearing that jihad has nothing to do with war, that it simply refers to an interior spiritual quest.

So, I appreciate your honesty. Thank you. You make it clear what Islam really is.

Thanks also for pointing out that 2: 190-191, allows you to kill any Muslim whth whom you might disagree, as many of us in the West have had trouble understanding the ongoing mayhem and murder in the middle east, mosques exploding every week in Pakistan, and the sight of Hamas guys throwing handcuffed Muslims off rooftops in Gaza. Now, thank you, I understand that all that destructive behavior is perfectly Islamic.

Though I have trouble understanding why you choose to live in Singapore, with its freedom of religion, and laws against murder, slavery and polygamy. Sounds like a terrible place to live. Wouldn't you be happier in Saudi Arabia, Libya or Sudan?

I have no idea what "hit your ash" means, though it sounds like a vile threat. Could you direct me to a verse in the Koran that explains what that means? In any case, I don't think you'll be hitting my ash anytime soon, Abdullah. And I'll keep my freedom of speech.
