It's ignorance

Reader comment on item: Muslim Taxi Drivers vs. Seeing-Eye Dogs
in response to reader comment: Hypocrites

Submitted by Mai (Kuwait), Jun 27, 2011 at 07:34

Hey Beth, I am with you, but coming from a muslim myself, and esp after reading the article it shows you that they aren't practicing what they have read, but what has been drilled in their own mind. It's pure ignorance. I currently am living back in my hometown Kuwait, and after 15years in NY I ran across a few frowns of people who looked at my dog (sweetie pie Amsatff, now 5yrs old) as if he was a walking disease. Depending on my mood I either fight back or laugh at their ignorance, or refuse to let them walk away without the know so I will tell them "u know, if anyone threatned me in the least bit, my boy would protect me with his life, but if ur nice, he will cause you to shower from all the licks, I let him sit, and their little child runs up to him, pulling his ear, or tapping his body, and just like a staffy, he sits oh so politely, and I smile inside...I have proven my point. One person, each day...I will try to make a difference & fight for this animal until my last days.
