Good against evil

Reader comment on item: Oklahomans Say No to Sharia

Submitted by Jiddrid (Morocco), Nov 20, 2010 at 12:26

Mr. Pipes, et al.,

I am Muslim. Amongst the little things I know is that you know little about the Sharia. What I see is a ridiculously massive mobilization of hatred around something you barely have any sustained knowledge about. By sustained knowledge, I mean the ability, which I know you cannot show, to discuss Sharia, with references to the Muslim scientific community which has academic authority to write about it, and discuss it, and debate it like any other issue you might think of. Note that your attacks on Sharia are based on anecdotal evidence, effervescent emotional jargons, and almost every single argumentative fallacy. I guess ... the lobby which produce this kind of knowledge are deluding the American citizens, whom we cannot but feel sympathy for for their acute limited knowledge about other people, and who are especially made to feel 'scared' of others. We know Americans are the ones who do the killings most around the Globe, but we do not blame Americans. We blame ... et al for lying at the Americans. For constructing a false enemy called Islam. I think Americans should wake up. Insisting on making Muslims feel they are foreigners is such a tacky strategy. It does not only 'not work', it also shows, year after year, that Muslims are patient, tolerant, and wise, which earns them respect and love ( i am thinking of American converts). Because I am Muslim, I know where that comes from: Muslims believe Allah is Great and Wise. He'll make you work for His cause while you think you are fighting Him.
