Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]
in response to reader comment: Muslims' persecution complex

Submitted by ahmad zafire (United States), Sep 23, 2006 at 01:25

Number one when i said "Coming from a people that through history was oppressed and forced into slavery, looked down upon as less than human." I was talking about my own ethnic background as a African American so lets get it right. Secondly it doesnt suprize me that somebody like yourself as always find something to negative to say about my or anyone remarks that are given their opionion on a situation thats not aimed in a negative but neutral way.

As a muslim i dont like when everytime someone makes a comment people react so violent again maybe because as a African American my people of orgin endored bad treatment through history. Even thou the world isnt perfect we came a long way. But not through violent all the time, my suggestion to the muslim world would be when an injustice happens march and protest as you do and have done. But take it to the people who in charge the higher up let your voice be heared and continue to put pressure on the government through yours voices not negative actions.

AS you can see the world already knows you are there. Here in America we have groups,programs aimed to help people from all walks of life one at comes to mind is CAIR. I just came from an interfaith meeting with all different brother and sister from deifferent faiths and it was wonderful. How eventhou islam is put on trail because of muslim actions and getting all this bad wrap. Their opionion have not been negative towards islam which is great. But what did come across was the actions of muslims in other lands and that is the probelm for muslims and other faiths alike.

Again use your resources that are out there !!
