Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]
in response to reader comment: My final words...İslam is beautiful

Submitted by Tony (United States), Dec 3, 2006 at 16:33

America has grown weary of the Arab states after having seen what some muslims are willing to do in order to prove a point. From back before i was born with the murdering of Israeli Olympians, the first basement bombings of the world trade center, to 9/11, to the london muslim "peace" protest, to the London Train station bombings, how can the islamic community in the world feel that the christian/judeo society is being judgemental of them.

It is common sense to know that when you are doing something to make an impression to any number of people, you are representing your people, be it only your family, your school, your religion or your nation. Those who have taken what they have seen from muslims from Arab nations, or from muslims in general and put it to a stereotype of muslims has not done anything wrong, that is a completely natural instinct. The brain will remember similar repeated events and teach us to learn from it.

Going around the main point of the argument doesnt help your case. I have a school friend who is muslim, and i have absolutely no problem with him, i rarely ever think of him as muslim, more just as a fellow American, even though he is a descendant of Mohammed, i do not care what religion he is because he doesnt care about my religion, we co-excist without thinking about it. And why choose the name saltan as your blog name, real helpful for trying to smooth things over for us westerners. Islam is not beautiful, christianity, judaism, and all religions are not beautiful! Humanity's desire for answers, beliefs, and hope are beautiful.
