Ed Melik, Great comments, bad conclusion

in response to reader comment: The tight connection between Islam and Marxism

Your article is most informative and interesting, that is until you come to the last line. "Islam will continue to be labeled by the west as a menace for there's a compelling need of an enemy so our defense industry and their economic growth remain healthy".

I'm extremely puzzled as to how some one as informed and intelligent as you, can end your comprehensive comments with such a foolish statement. How can you possibly believe that; "Islam will continue to be a menace because we need an enemy" ? Is this limited list of Muslim atrocities insufficient to label Islam as a terrorist religion?

Suicide bombing in the name of Islam:

Lebanon (1981),

Kuwait (1983),

Argentina (1992),

Panama, Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories (1994),

Pakistan, Croatia (1995),

Saudi Arabia (1996),

Tanzania, Kenya (1998),

Yemen, Chechnya (2000),

USA, Kashmir, Afghanistan (2001),

Tunisia, Indonesia, Algeria (2002),

Morocco, Russia, India, Iraq, Turkey (2003), Uzbekistan and Spain (2004),

United Kingdom (2005)

Read carefully, Islam is an enemy and a menace because Muslims have made it very clear to the world that Islam is the only acceptable religion. We either, except this knowledge and submit, or Muslims will be forced to continue killing us until we do. That's why Muslims are engaged in Terrorism.

The Hadith clearly states that the world belongs to Allah and Muhammad, and thus the Muslims. Since the world is not converting to Islam at an acceptable pace, the only other option is terrorism.

Hadith, Volume 9, Book 85, Number 77

"You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to exile you from this land, so whoever among you owns some property, can sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle."

The statement below was made by a Sheik and posted on Aljazeera on Aug 11/06:

"What's wrong with you Muslims? You have set your sights too low. Don't you know that the world belongs to you? Instead of fighting the Jews, you need to fight the whole world. You should've had control over the whole world by now. Allah is angry because you have forgotten."

In closing, I would like to repeat that I really liked your article, excepting of course your last comment.
