No problem!

Reader comment on item: Hating Valentine's Day

Submitted by Neena (Egypt), Dec 30, 2005 at 14:33

Well if some Moslems or Islamic governments don't like to celebrate Valentine, I don't think this should be a problem to anyone. They have their own celebrations and they never criticize others for not celebrating it. It's all about cultures & beliefs.

I've been living in a Moslem country for years & what I realized is that they love & are loved and they enjoy their life too! It's just that they are confined with their religious regulations, a thing that shouldn't be considered as a mistake, so if their religion is not for celebrating Valentine, why should they bother! They can celebrate their love any time of the year and they don't have to wear red to show their love

I don't think Moslems resort to violence, well I used to see them as terrorists but they also see the Americans and Israelis as terrorists, which is true in a sense as their governments do far more then those Moslems do. Yet in this world some citizens ruin the image of their countries while some governments ruin the image of their citizens.
