Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech

Submitted by Mohammed Saleem Akhtar (United States), Sep 22, 2005 at 22:51

First of all to some Hindus who are posting typical anti-muslim posts.. look, we can pick on you even though you have put a Pakistani name. Its pretty clear that you are 'trolling'! PS- check out the definition of troll. If you are so honest with the Jewish people, why are you getting so frustrated? Lets not forget that you are one of the most antisemitic nation on this planet and many of the hardline Hindus simple want to wipe Muslims from their country. Infact they sing laurels in praise of Adolf Hitler.

Now let me get back to the Arabs and Muslims. Musharraf was quite right in that both Jewish and Muslim people, in general, do not have any conflict. This has been proven by their coexistence of thousands of years. Even prior to islam, Arabs and Jews lived together quite well. Ofcourse this wasnt a perfect relationship but then give me one example of a 'perfect relationship' between 2 different races? We must think practically and it is a true fact that even within a one house there often are fights between 2 brothers.. its just a fact of life. Human is an animal who is cynical and basically every human has a selfish desire in him/her (men are worse than women, to be honest).

I do think that islam and Judaism are the most similar religions on this planet. It is a true fact. Muslims will never blame the Jews for 'killing' Christ, the Christians will always do. The Muslims will eat Kosher meat with a Jew, the Hindus will not even touch the utensil of a Jew.

Both Muslims and Jews have so many, I mean so many things in common.. I being a Pakistani am simply astonished why are these 2 people fighting with each other for past 50 years. I think the fault to some extent lies with Arabs. They have forgotten their history. They have forgotten that Israel is the true land of the hebrews, Abraham, Solomon, Jacob, Moses.. all of these prophets, the people of God, were Israelities and Jewish, basically. Israel deserves to exist simply because it is the true ancient land of the Hebrews. And Islam, infact, gives the jewish people that right. Problem is Arab ignorance, nationalism, non-education, lack of knowledge and simply denial.

Mr. Daniel Pipes very eloquently describes his honest opinion on the Musharraf speech which I greatly admire.

Thank you!
