Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]
in response to reader comment: The tight connection between Islam and Marxism

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Sep 29, 2006 at 00:31

As I read your holy epistle no doubt inspired by Allah, I thought I saw a certain radiance around my computer very similar to the one around Ahmadinejad's head, when he spoke at the United Nations.

You ask the following question; Does any reasonably thinking person in the world believe or accept the above statement by a self-proclaimed and self appointed so call Sheikh with no standing among the legitimate "imams" of Islam? By phrasing the question in the above format, you completely discredit someone you know nothing about. Why did you do that? The Sheikh I quoted was heard on Aljazeera, a Muslim TV broadcast station. Aljazeera is very sympathetic to the Muslim cause and their articles are always negative regarding Israel and USA. So why would they choose an Imam of no reputation to encourage Muslims to war?

For the record, he was not the only Imam I've heard on the internet encouraging Muslims to go to war. Rabi Meier Kahane of Israel was murdered by a Muslim, surprise, surprise; however, Jerry Falwell, the 700 Club clans and the rest of the paid-off televangelist mouth pieces have never counseled war against anyone, so why did you need to include them?

Your reference to the Japanese kamikaze pilots is ridiculous; Japan was at war; is Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria and the other Muslim nations at war? Are you aware of any current kamikaze pilots or have you heard of any since WW2? And by the way, Japan did not rise from the ashes, they were raised up by the Americans. Was Japan's undeclared war against USA and bombing of Hawaii humane, their unprovoked attack on China was humane, attack against Philippines was humane. Had the USA not used the atomic bomb, the war may have continued and thousands more people may have been killed including of course, more Japanese.

So the "Islamic bombers" the "Islamic fascist" the "Islamic terrorists" are part and parcel of our bankrupt and defunct foreign policies. Were Muslims sitting around one day and chatting and someone said, you know the American foreign policies are defunct, we got to start bombing them and while we're at it, lets bomb some other countries? How logical is that?

You ask the question, where was Islam 10 years ago?
For the record, they were actually quite busy as
suicide bombing in the name of Islam has occurred in more than 20 countries:
Lebanon (1981),
Kuwait (1983),
Argentina (1992),
Panama, Israel, Palestinian Territories (1994),
Pakistan, Croatia (1995),
Saudi Arabia (1996),
Tanzania, Kenya (1998),
Yemen, Chechnya (2000),

And while you natter on about Timothy McVeigh, you did forget to mention; Feb 26 1993: six people killed by a 500kg bomb beneath the World Trade Center in New York. We can explain McVeigh's problem, he was sick and demented, but how do you explain the problem with American Muslims who celebrated when the Twin Towers went down? Did you see Christians and Jews dancing and rejoicing when tsunami killed 300 thousand Muslims in December of 2005?

You state that, "if anyone bothers to read Quraan, the holy book of the Muslims (of Islam) one would be shocked to see how closely related Islam is to Christianity and Judaism".

Well Mr. Melik, I've read 3 Qur'ans from cover to cover, all 114 Suras, 6,246 Ayas and all 93 Chapters of the Hadith plus I refer to the 3 Qur'ans in my library on a daily basis, as well as my 11 Bibles, and I can tell you today that there is nothing common between Islam, Christianity and Judaism except for the confused Ayas plagiarized from the Torah. I found rather amusing that not a word was borrowed for the Qur'an from the New Testament Bible, I wonder why? You could almost conclude that Muhammad found a wayward Jew in Medina, not a problem as there were an estimated 30 thousand Jews living in Medina including Dhu Nuwas who hated and persecuted Christians and he may have taught Muhammad everything he knew about Judaism, which must have been very little. After all, either the Qur'an is correct or the Torah is correct, as there are too many differences between the two books to assume that they bring the same message.

You state that, you came back home to America with a very confused state of mind. According to your comments, your mental problem has not gone away. You live in the USA, enjoy their standard of living, enjoy their freedom, enjoy your liberty, enjoy the education you received and then turn around and curse the nation that makes this all possible. Only a Muslim. America is blessed to have you as their citizen, right?
