Is this culture

Reader comment on item: Caught on Tape: The Middle East's Culture of Cruelty

Submitted by Kamran (Pakistan), May 21, 2009 at 14:37

According to the cambridge dictionary, culture (WAY OF LIFE) means
"the way of life, especially the general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a particular time".

Well then if all of us are convinced that the culture of Middle East is sadistic torture then I suggest such a people have no right to exist and should be eliminated. A single nuclear bomb should be enough for these barbaric and inhumane people.

Believe me the rest of us will be quite happy to see the sight of melting middle eastern bone and flesh.

However, thanks to ALLAH, there are still enough people left on the surface of this world that can distinguish between culture and a single person's wicked crimes. That is why Hitlers massacare of the Jews is not called German culture.

Peace cannot be achieved within the human society by propogating hate. Criminals of humanity should be brought to justice. Linking these criminals to a particular race, culture, religion, color or nation only gives them the protection of their own kind.

The greatest man ever to live on earth, Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) never ever gave a hate speech against anyone. Even though he and his followers were tortured,jailed and finally bannished from their homes in Mecca. He fought to uphold justice. The result of his fights (in which less than a 1000 people were killed in 13 years) ended in the unification of the whole of Arabia under one single rule. ( Before this Arabs were divided into hostile groups of plunderers that fought amongst themselves on petty issues) This in turn brought peace and prosperity to Arabia.

If the prophet were to be alive today, he would have ordered the immediate punishment of Sheikh Issa. Unfortunately the prophet is no more amongst us. The world needs to learn from his teachings.

If the United States believes in justice and is fighting for it on all fronts ( e.g. drone attacks in PAKISTAN), then I see no reason why it cannot pressure the government of U.A.E to punish Sheikh Issa according to Islamic law.
