ISLAM WILL ALWAYS BE HARD TO UNDERSTAND

Reader comment on item: When Sunni and Shiite Extremists Make War

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Jun 5, 2013 at 21:01

An ancient hebrew proverb goes like this :

""At the fall of your enemy you shall not rejoice""

What to say when both the Shiites and the Sunnis are my enemies and they are killing each other?

Shall I rejoice? Especially when I am not the one doing the killing.

Someone told me that these two sects hate each other more than they hate the Jews. So what to make of it for the Westerner who cannot comprehend this animosity? Sadly, this will carry on ad vita eternum and there is nothing to say or to do to prevent such behavior.

Islam may be an interesting religion but it is so complex to understand and appreciate. Yet it lives amongst us and we have to live with it. What I must sadly say is that we are willing to live with it but does it have the will to live with us?
