in response to reader comment: My final words...İslam is beautiful

Dear Sultan,

As I read your post, I wished that all muslims had the same outlook as you. You sound very sincere and desire that everyone live in peace.

Today I came across two articles that lead me to believe that peace maybe a long way off. The first article was about statements made by the newly elected president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad. He is quoted as saying "A nation with martyrdom knows no captivity. Those who wish to undermine this principle undermine the foundations of our independence and national security."

"Have no doubt....Allah willing, Islam will conquer what? It will conquer all the mountain tops of the world."

After I read this, I was reminded of the speech that Soviet leader Nikita Kruchev gave at the United Nations in the 1950's. He stood and the podium and banged his shoe on it stating that the Soviet Union would bury the West.

Thus, the Cold War became even more colder and more dangerous.

Sultan, when muslim leaders do not speak out against this and demonstrate that they wish to live peacefully by not desiring to change the political and cultural order, non-muslims become very nervous in the least. It confirms that muslims have no disagreement or objection to Islam dominating the world.

The other article was about statements by muslim religious leaders like Saudi Sheikh Muhammad bin Abd Al-Rahman Al-'Arifi, Imam of the mosque of King Fahd Defense Academy, discussed the coming Muslim conquest of the Vatican. Citing a Hadith in an article posted on the Kalemat website in 2002, he stated: "… We will control the land of the Vatican; we will control Rome and introduce Islam in it. Yes, the Christians, who carve crosses on the breasts of the Muslims … will yet pay us the Jiziya [poll tax paid by non-Muslims under Muslim rule], in humiliation, or they will convert to Islam…"

As a practicing Catholic, I would be on the first plane to Rome to fight them. You would have war.

This is the hypocrisy I see in Islam and many muslims. Muslims are so ready to condemn US foreign policy and it's perceived aggression but are completely myopic when it comes to your own religious inspired violence.

If you truly respect Jesus, then heed His words "Pull the plank from your own eye before you attempt to pull the splint from your neighbors."
Submitting....
