in response to reader comment: Living in a fantasy world: How Muslims cope with reality

In reply to Dr RJB's comment,

No personal offence intended but ... Only a small measure of intelligence can reveal that behind the "Moslem States... Peace" statement is miserably naive and illiterate but terribly wicked mind. Consequently, capitalizing on such a misinformed statement to remind us of the infamous utterance about the non-existence of the Palestinian people is equally terribly wicked. Time has proved it as such.

You really need to know that Muhammad is a Prophet who, like all other Prophets, was only assigned to show the way to salvation. Muslems do not need to perfect his memory. If I accepted the guidance, good: if not, I would only be told to suit myself. The Prophet, if you really did not know, liberated the Arabian peninsula from the idols that enslaved man. His followers, some 40,000 or so men, women and children came out of the desert to liberate their fellow tribes of the Middle East and North Africa from the hundreds of thousands of the decadent Roman occupation soldiers.

Islam later spread wide and large but, unlike the practice of many other CIVILISATIONS, it respected the religious beliefs, land ownership and, even loyalty, of others. It is true that the Jews of Arabia (who were Arabs on whom judaism had been forced -- read the true history) were asked to leave when they had betrayed the Muslems in their hour of need, but the Jews never prospered and lived safely except in Muslem lands; the christians, likewise, never practised their religion freely, that is to say without massacres, except in Muslem lands. And let's not forget that Spain became the envy of all of medival Europe only when it was under Muslem rule. Did the Spanish christians and jews regret the defeat and departure of the muslems? If they did not, then "moslem" states may ineed be a menace to world peace.

But this is not to say that outrageous acts like 9/11 and the burning of embassies in reaction to cartoons are part of Islam or the message of the Prophet. These horrible acts are, I guess, not viewed with the same eye in Western and Muslem countries, only because they are part and parcel of the crazy post-cold war era, with far more political issues attached to them than religious motives. If we were to condemn a World Jewish Conspiracy, we should be equally prepared to condemn a World Muslem Conspiracy.
