By Comparison....

Reader comment on item: Should We Blame a Florida Pastor for Deaths in Afghanistan?

Submitted by terence hoare (Australia), Apr 12, 2011 at 23:01

It is difficult to know what one can do not to offend Islamics! However, I do know that the Religon of Islam is not in a Book, as such. By comparison, I do know that Nightclubs, Embassies and Churches have been 'burnt' with people in them. My problem is: I do not believe in Revenge. I do not believe in War and hope for Peace, (irrespective of opposing denominational incentives towards ongoing unrest.)Perhaps, I need to view Islam more as a Politic than a Religon. If I do, then the statement by the late President Sadat of Egypt when asked if he expected a third world war, replied that ;"It has begun but few know it" is a situation I can understand; I know where I stand!
