Without reforming Islam we should not expect any thing but more terrorism

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

Submitted by Dr. Nahed Hamid (New Zealand), Mar 14, 2006 at 22:26

Many westerners expect that Islamic terrorists have apparent violent behaviour (e.g. conduct disorder) through out their life. Unfortunately, this view is not correct.

It is not surprising for me that law abiding Muslims change into terrorists. This is because what I call ‘mental training camps', are available everywhere, including in the western countries. Such ‘mental training camps' represent the Salafi Islamic teaching, and is available in many Islamic books on the shelves of Islamic centres, Islamic schools, and Mosques. This teaching praises hatred, aggression, and violence . As well as beating wives to discipline them, killing apostates and attacking on Non-Muslims.

Without reforming such teaching no one can guarantee who is going to be the next terrorist but certainly we can guarantee that Home grown terrorism will cause major troubles in the western world unless Islam is reformed.
