ATTIDUDES OF COUNTRIES
Submitted by berk akk (Turkey), Apr 28, 2009 at 04:13
Your letter written in cordially make me smile happily.So i do write in same way .I try to write in numbered items to be clear.
1-Even in same family members,critical verses in quran understood diferently by the members..some people understands that friendship with jews or christs is forbidden in all case ,but some understands in only war situation.I think depends on the country,personality.etc.Me for instance understand such situation that friendship with jews and christs is forbidden only in a war case, even today there are such military rules in almost every country ."many muslim man married with christ woman."
2-Islamic world is not a solid block.They are also not good friends in eachother.In history great wars happend between them.Today ,See news.There are many colors in it.Great differences exists in way of understanding.I personaly think that revision of quran is imposible but way of understanding should be revised.Revisions is especially required in way of understanding in terms of how to be happy in world,how to improve friendship ,love,,social life,personal skills ,scientific facts ,etc.
3-Unfortunatelly i am not agree in your anxiety of islamisation of west.This is both technically ,socially imposible.Muslim ottoman empire settled in greece ,bulgaria ,hundreds of years but islamisation of greece did not happend.How would happen islamisation of west? There are only invited muslim workers over there and may be a small numbers of westerns moved to islam.Remember EU is more than 400 million.How can several millions workers in a huge cuntinent dominate whole western world?
4-Spreading of a religion world wide can not only be related to islam .Please remember even korea,japan ,russia ,unknown tribes in africa had been christianised through the history.Dar al-christ?
4-Turkish movement from Asia to western border in history ,in my oppinion,can not be related to dar-al islam.This movement has many antropological reasons.Large scale human migration acrros the history happend not only Turkish origins but even Europians .Unfortunately migrations brought war anywhere happened.
5-Raising difuculties to prevent a posibble peace between Ermenia and Turkey can not be "game created by muslims" .This has no logical reason.But there are many other actors in the region.We can discuss those in detail.
6-Attidude of an islamic country does not necesarily represent islam itself.As hitlers germany doesnot represents Christ;turkey,iran or arabia doesnot represent islam.
7-We assume Any kind of terrorist attack against people is strictly non human behaviour.
