We Have To Be Informed

Reader comment on item: Islam's Inadvertent Patterns

Submitted by Mark D (United States), Mar 16, 2014 at 00:06

Inadvertent patterns, sometimes called Islamicate, change over time, with some (slave soldiers) becoming defunct and others (polio) starting only recently. These patterns remain as powerful today as in premodern times and are key to understanding Islam and Muslim life.

The practice of Islam flies in the face of modern society. Such grab bag of ills it produces! But we have to be informed. Our politicians and lawmakers have to be informed or our whole world will come crashing down on us. We have to know what we are dealing with. We are at war with terrorists and I am sorry to say Islam the religion is up, front and center of it. It plays a central role.
