Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Mohammad the perfect example!

Submitted by twin sisters (United Kingdom), Dec 27, 2005 at 17:00

it was very interesting reading your essay on islam as a learned priest (not).

"Obviously the author of this article does not know the history of Islam and Muslims"
this quote from your article clearly states that you have no idea about the history of islam and muslims which indicates that the rest of your article has no validity and therefore pointless to read.

"The only reason there was any tolerance in the very edges of their empire was because they was a miniscule minority and had to rule over a population that could over throw them at any time "

firstly, i would like to point out to you that you have a grammatical mistake (no hard feelings). "they" is a plural form, therefore words relating to these people should also be in the plural form- not "they was".

now to the point, if muslims were a minority and the population of this community did not like them for their values, they would have been overthrown. However, history relates that the Muslim empire stretched from the Middle East to Africa and certain parts of Europe. therefore, this point is also considered invalid and i would like to know your sources of information.

"Muslim "fundamentalist" assassins as his secret police" this quote seems as though you have been watching too many heart rendering epic movies. COME BACK TO REALITY, DEAR!!!

"Muslims have been killing Christians and Jews, let alone those indigenous faiths that did not share a common history with the bible, since the so-called Holy prophet (piss be on him) struggled for control of the family business (the Kaba and Arab Allah priesthood), right up through to today."

The first few words of this quote may be true, but in these "massacres" Muslims also died. Christians and Jews have also been killing Muslims, so this quote does not throw alot of weight into your argument.
also, the whole quoted paragraph makes no sense whatsoever, so go home and rephrase it.

"Islam is socio-political ideology of violence, hate and war, based on the teachings and example of Mohammad, who was a genocidal, blood thirsty, child molesting, power mongering Mafioso, who raped and pillaged and murdered his way to power in Mecca and then beyond."

firstly, you stated that Islam was a miniscule minority and now you have just contradicted yourself by saying that Islam had power in Mecca and beyond.

Make your mind up about what you believe, write it, check it so that it makes sense and then post it...
Your quote is also one sided and biased, relating back to your personality.

"(what outsiders are taught is very different and the truth is thoroughly hidden from the outside world)."
can you please state in ENGLISH what outside world you are living in? if you happen to know the truth, then why are there still people out there who will have a different argument to yours, supposing they are not blind (which is your typical comeback when you know you are wrong and do not know what to say).

"Nazi'ism is seen for what it is by the world (as an embarrassing footnote of human history) and so the same must happen of Islam."

if you consider Islam to be so embarrassing, then why is it still the fastest growing religion today? surely, not everyone is blind.(You may have been but thats your loss.)

Also, you claim that Islam will be history, but as of yet it is not, and with so many Muslims in this world, i somehow don't see that happening.

"All I know of Islam I know from the inside looking out, as someone who studied Islam honestly, originally with the intent of becoming a Muslim, "
Can i ask you how you were looking at Islam? through your open eyes or your backside? It is true that you see it from a different angle considering which way you would have looked at it.

If you believe that your article was taken seriously i have to say that it made me laugh and feel quite sad at the same time. Through reading your article there is a huge lack of knowledge not just about Islam but about other religions too, because if you have something to compare islam to then you will see the light and the beauty of Islam.It has no flaws the only flaws are your flaws and misconceptions which have been exaggerated way out of proportion.

May Allah grant you the power of seeing through your EYES.
May Allah grant you the power to know the truth (Islam).
