Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: My thoughts

Submitted by Jerry Pike (United States), Sep 18, 2006 at 19:11

You sound very intelligent, but how can you say "please don't drag Islam into this." It's ALL about Islam! People, please go to http://www.memri.org/ Watch some of the videos. These are mostly from mainstream Islamic television programs from across the Middle East. They will turn your hair white.

While we are watching Oprah, they are watching some of the most black-hearted, insipid propaganda, and buy into it hook, line and sinker. It seems MANY Muslims lack any critical thinking skills, whatsoever. Anything some Cleric says, nomatter how bizarre, is embraced with open arms. Half the time, it sounds like something a violently crazed little kid would say.

As Westerners, we have to pretend that Islam is peaceful, and only a handful of extremists want us dead. And those extremists are not really Muslims... Mmkay.. Westerners are very tolerant, but don't think certain things aren't BLAZINGLY obvious. We actually think for ourselves and can come to reasonable conclusions without some extremist Cleric or Imam pounding nutso rhetoric down our throats. And when someone tries to do that, we don't get whipped up into an animalistic frenzy and start chopping heads off in the name of Christianity.

Take care, Jerry Pike
