Shazia, Actions Are Stronger Than Words

Reader comment on item: Christianity Dying in Its Birthplace
in response to reader comment: True Nature of Islam

Anyone reading your post can only conclude that you are intelligent, knowledgeable and a creative writer. So no doubt you will understand then, that after reading your post several times, I could only categorize your post as a superb "oxymoron". How else can you explain your beautiful description of Islam and the Qur'an on the very page where Dr. Pipes so clearly chronicles the heinous crime committed by Muslims acting on their understanding of the Qur'an? In the name of Islam, family members murder one of their own, and Muslim men break into houses and steal furniture, jewelry, and electrical appliances. They threw Molotov cocktails at some buildings and poured kerosene on others, then torched them. The damage included at least 16 houses, some stores, a farm, and a gas station. The assailants vandalized cars, looted extensively, and destroyed a statue of the Virgin Mary. Is it because they did not understand the methodology of interpreting and applying the Qur`an in their lives? Or perhaps they forgot to examine the root words in Arabic and expound on them. So my suggestion to you is that YOU work together with your Muslim brothers who wreak havoc on this planet and cause misery and suffering to others instead of prattling on to us infidels about how peaceful, fulfilling and sanctimonious your religion really is and how it is that Islam is so misunderstood. Predictably, the world is judging you by your actions and not your words, and so it should.
