Fundamentalism or Islam

Reader comment on item: My Gloom: Back to September 10

Submitted by Joe Marschall (Australia), Dec 20, 2005 at 16:30

I agree with so much of what is stated - how could I not, there are so many facts?

I just wish that you would focus on the real issue - FUNDAMENTALISM.

FUNDAMENTALIST Islam, FUNDAMENTALIST Christianity, FUNDAMENTALIST Sikhism, FUNDAMENTALIST Hinduism, FUNDAMENTALIST Jewry

Each of the religions has many good, worthy and shared teachings - all attempt to maximise the net sum of human happiness.

Add the FUNDAMENTALISM word and we arrive at the JIHAD, Northern Ireland, Nurning Temples, Bombings and land grabs.

EDUCATION not ANTI-ISLAMIC teachings have to be promoted. FUNDAMENTALISM - a religious or political movement based on a literal interpretation of and strict adherence to doctrine, especially as a return to former principles - is our enemy. NOT Islam.
