Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: christianity and jews are evil

Submitted by Benjamin (United States), Jul 5, 2006 at 01:02

Well, I'd like to point out a few things: 1. It is HIGHLY UNLIKELY that the US planned 9/11 2. Most ISRAELI attacks in Palestine are responses to violence (e.g., the capture of Gilad) 3. While some extremist Muslims do things like shooting rockets into Yisrael and capturing innocent children, most do NOT. There are also Frum (highly orthodox) Jewish extremists who, referencing Bereshit and Sh'mot (Genesis and Exodus) especially, say that Aza and the rest of Palestine should belong to B'nei Yisrael. There have been attempts by Jewish extremists to attack Muslims. The IDF does not support this, in fact it does whatever it can to prevent these attacks from happening. 4. I completely agree on the injustice of the war in Iraq. 5. No religion is completely evil. 6. It is true that Muslims are often viewed as terrorists in general by American extremists.
