Islam the religion of peace does not allow this

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)

Submitted by tariq (United Arab Emirates), Mar 14, 2006 at 10:06

"Individual Islamists may appear law-abiding and reasonable, but they are part of a totalitarian movement, and as such, all must be considered potential killers." "
Dont non-muslims kill?
Iraq war, afghanistan, palestine...

"That was when a just-graduated student named Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, 22, and an Iranian immigrant, drove a sport utility vehicle into a crowded pedestrian zone. He struck nine people but, fortunately, none were severely injured."

Out of 1.2 billion ppl...

"This is what I have dubbed the Sudden Jihad Syndrome, whereby normal-appearing Muslims abruptly become violent."

Non-muslims are already violent.
Anyways this has nothing to do with jihad.

"He told the 911 dispatcher that he wanted to "punish the government of the United States for their actions around the world."

(then punish the people responsible not innocent people.

He explained to a detective that "people all over the world are being killed in war and now it is the people in the United States' turn to be killed."

It IS tru that USA is killing many people around the world, and that christians are responsible for many innocent muslim deaths directly or indirectly, but this is no way for a muslim to behave.

He said he acted to "avenge the deaths of Muslims around the world."

Then were the people injured directly involved?

He portrayed his actions as "an eye for an eye."

Let christians answer that.

A police affidavit notes that "Taheri-azar repeatedly said that the United States government had been killing his people across the sea and that he decided to attack."

Hmmm. thats true. but they should defend themselves from the attackers.

He told a judge, "I'm thankful you're here to give me this trial and to learn more about the will of Allah."

First he should himself learn the will of Allah.


T"he Muslim response of denouncing these views as bias, as the "new anti-Semitism," or "Islamophobia" is as baseless as accusing anti-Nazis of "Germanophobia" or anti-Communists of "Russophobia."

Theres a difference. people have islamophobia. instead they should have munafiqeenophobia. people would say germanophobia, why not christianophobia?

"Instead of presenting themselves as victims,..."

Actually we ARE the victims; the victims of west as well as 'muslims' who dont understand Islam.

"...Muslims should address this fear by developing a moderate, modern, and good-neighborly version of Islam"

Islam already IS moderate, modern, and good-neighborly.

"that rejects radical Islam,..."

there is no such thing as radical islam

"...jihad,..."

Non-muslims have no idea what jihad is.

"and the subordination of "infidels."

There is no-compulsion in religion.
