Reader comment on item: Music and Islamists

The islamic world is so completely controlled by the muslim imans et al that there is no freedom. This then takes on a life of its own.

Nothing new is invented. If the flute and piano is banned, who will be able to write a new opera or musical? No one that is who. This type of shutting down of peoples minds is the reason that islamic countries are so backward and ignorant. This is perfect breeding grounds for terrorist recruiters.

Now there is internet and channels from all over the world reaching islamic countries. They see what we have, and they are mad and jealous. Most people in islamic nations have horrible lives.
When the people strive for freedom they are hurt, the latest example is the good people of Iran who took to the streets against the muslim iman supported government. They were slapped down hard , some were murdered in the streets while others were arrested and tortured.

On a more positive note, maybe seeing and living some of our culture will inspire the muslims to reject the evil teachings of mohammed and tell the imans to take a flying leap. One day maybe the good muslims will be able to think for themselves. Good luck to them !
