Muslims don't blame their culture for worldwide Islamic terrorism!

Reader comment on item: Winning the Propaganda War [versus Radical Islam]

Submitted by Nonie Darwish (United States), Dec 27, 2005 at 12:57

While Muslims claim that their own terrorists are just a fringe minority that Muslim culture is not responsible for, they blame Western and Israeli governments for being directly responsibility for the actions of any of its citizens.

Most Muslims have developed a ‘disconnect' between the idealism of Islam and the reality of the actions of Muslims. They were trained to criticize others and never themselves or their religion. Only other religions is responsible for the actions of their people, but Muslims deserve to be understood. Only the actions of Muslims deserve justifications and explanations; because, you see, Islam is a religion of peace. In the eyes of many Muslims, the world does not need an apology from Muslims or Muslim governments because they cannot apply the same standard to themselves.

They are using every PR strategy to tell the world they are not responsible for any of the world wide Islamic terrorism. These are the same people who would be the first to blame all Jews or non-Muslims for the actions of one. They are the same people who would violently demonstrate and demand an apology from Western governments for the action of one non-Muslim citizens.

Very few Muslims are able to see this double standard. Watching Western media might get them to see this hypocrisy and thus reevaluate their values and take responsibility. Thus many Muslims in the West resort to the same old propaganda outlets coming out of the Middle East.
