I admire your honesty

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: To Armageddon

Submitted by Armageddon (United States), Jan 27, 2006 at 22:03

You see my dear, you have answered all my questions, honestly, and indeed you are probably a true representative of the peaceful Muslims worldwide (am I right ?).

Here is what I understand from your answer, point by point:

1. "You are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill"
this means, you are minimizing the September 11 attack and all other attacks in in Europe. They are all to you a "molehill" when in fact they are true "mountains", to me and to the families of the innocent victims that your people have massacred there.

2. "THOUTHANDS AND THOUTHANDS "

I have asked soldiers and I have soldiers in my family who served there. A few hundreds of innocent people (not soldiers) who died there it was only because of the suicide bombers and their continuous effort to stop this country from getting a democracy. The fact that you are not supporting the process of democratization of Iraq (otherwise you would support US), this means
that you actually support the dictatorial regime in these countries along with the oppression of women, other religions and speech freedom. Are you saying that in Iran people are living a free life ? And not only in Iran but in all other Islamic countries.

With the enormous amount of money they made from Oil, you would expect to see a flourishing culture in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, etc.. But in fact, what you see is a huge discrepancy between their economical status of their leaders as opposed to the majority of people who live in very bad conditions and are convinced that this is the will of Allah for them to live this way. Tell me something my dear, in Saudi Arabia, are they still practicing the limb amputation ritual when they catch a thief ? area they still stoning an unfaithful wife ? I've heard they are still practicing these duties when necessary.

3. "Tell me who made the two great World Wars 1 and 2 ? Examples are too much to be counted either in the past or now..."
Well my dear, these European wars have started because of Germany, who later had as best allies, the Islamic countries. In fact, there are many Nazis who have escaped Europe after the war and who are currently leaving peacefully, in Islamic countries and that is a fact, you can browse the internet and read about it. One of these criminals by the name of Ho Brunner, 87, was the private secretary of Adolph Eichmann and the chief engineer of the Holocaust. The French government is exerting intense pressure on the Syrian government to extradite Brunner from his safe haven in suburban Damascus, where he lives under the pseudonym Georg Fisher. And there are many others. In fact, some Muslim regimes/countries are currently denying the holocaust. This means, history will return if Islam will rule the world, in the near future.

4. "Tell me how many wars occurred under the name of the cross..."
Let me remind you how many were killed under the name Jihad, the Arabian Sword and the Koran. Do you remember the Ottoman empire and what they did in Europe ? Islam still leaves the past and dream about conquering the world again and rule it by force.

5. "As for suicide bombers,if they are fighting to defend their religion, land, and right as in Palestine or Iraq,they must be encouraged and supported by the whole world as long as they do not harm innocent people,i.e.just killing soldiers or occupiers."
tell me please who are these soldiers and occupiers to you ? you see, from a very peaceful Muslim you became militant (at least in words). Tomorrow, when Muslims will be a majority in Europe, they will claim the Europeans to be the occupants like they are doing in Spain (the moors), in Russia, etc. So, in the future, the occupants in Europe will be non-Muslims andtherefore Suicide Bombers will be justified, according to you (and other Muslims) and supported. So where do you draw a line between Peaceful Islam and Militant Islam, my dear ?

So if a Muslim sacrifices his own son or his life, in order to kill those occupiers, is this allowed by the Koran ? Because this is what you implied in your answer. You said, if they occupy, suicide bombersare to be supported. Are you citing the principles of the Jihad from the Koran my dear ?

Thanks for your honesty, I admire you.
