Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: blame all faiths and men

thank you, Firoz, for responding. I agree, many in many religions have corrupted themselves to the point where they are no longer religious people, rather, they are haters of any other people. in Palastine, for example, some (but not all, mind you) of the muslim fighters there are not brought up to love Islam, rather, they are brought up to hate the Isrealis (again, this only applies to some). so you are absolutely right about that. however, i do have to say that religion is also a very beneficial aspect of life. for example, what do you suppose happens after we die? religion has answers to this and many more difficult questions. now, in regards to Islam, Islam has not been classified as a religion, rather, it is a complete way of life (DEEN in arabic). so it is not only rituals and beliefs, but is a total explanation of how one should live life in peace. so in todays world, what you say is correct. but we have to wonder if that means we should look at things differently.
