in response to reader comment: A sincere cry from a real Muslim.

Submitted by John Bastile (Malaysia), Oct 14, 2005 at 08:46

I refer to a weblog written by Mr. Muhammad, October 13, 2005 at 21:04. I doubt that you would be reading this weblog since you mentioned that you would not return. However, I would like to address your issues nonetheless.

You mentioned that this website contains hatred for muslims and it is well organized and involves a lot of minds and hard work. You said that its main target is to distort the image of Muslims and Islam and spread the hate against the people who love Allah and work hard to obey His teachings.

My answer to you is that it is not hate but natural human responses to threats to our lives and our way of life. I'm afraid when muslims work hard to obey Allah's teachings. That means more terrorist attacks. I would prefer if you follow the majority of muslims – who are ordinary human beings following a long list of religious rituals. Just don't read the Quran. Please just follow your 5 pillars of Islamic beliefs and not desire the highest form – jihad.

You claim that some of us distort the image of Islam, yet you offered no rebuttals. You merely claimed that the truth will always prevail if not in this life, then in the hereafter. I encourage you to present your arguments. I sensed that you used "veiled threats" by using words like "hereafter" and "the fire will mainly burn itself". This is an immediate tell-tale sign that you are a muslim. These are what your imans may have replied you. However, you are dealing with 21st century people when you write to this website. Please present your intellectual arguments. Please defend so that we may be enlightened to your understanding of real Islam.

We are always informed of what DO NOT represent the Real Islam. We learn about what are not acts of Real Muslims. Yet, we only received "advertisement jingles" about Islam. Islam means Peace. Muslims are loving people. Muslims respect other religions. Well, thanks for the advertisement. I'm trying hard to buy. Now, please deliver.
