Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: counting apologies

Submitted by susan (Italy), Dec 22, 2006 at 17:59

"Open Letter to Pope Benedict XVI by 38 leading muslim scholars and leaders, condemning and apologizing for the misapprehension of the meaning of jihad and for not being able to counter such attacks. And what is better about it is that they, unlike you, want to establish discussions and open mindedness, thank God for the Pope... Signed and delivered October 12, 2006."

I am not impressed, I have read the letter and they have NOT apologised, no muslim ever apologises. No muslim posses such a thing like open-mind. If they had they wouldn't be muslims anymore

Those "prominent" muslims are probably a couple or 3 and they count less than ZERO. Big numbers.

"AA Gym (a muslim preacher/ustadz) in Indonesia, apologized and condemned the Bali bombings-2002(Apology extended towards everyone, he didn't have a "category" like you so technically he wasn't saying sorry to non muslims only, since he didn't say it with a prejudice sort of viewpoint)

An open speech by the Fillipino muslims (non ARMM) for the fighting going on in and outside Mindanao on the "so called" behalf of muslims-sometime last year, Philippines.

My Bosnian friend (Elvir Birkich-muslim) apologizing to his Physics Olympiad team mate Goran (serbian and christian) for stepping on his foot, you can find them if you type IPho or Physics Olympiad 2002 in Google and type in Bosnia-herzegovina in the site search. Very good friends"

I am rolling on the floor laughing.

As I said they are nobodies and they count like zero.

"I am sorry that you feel that way about Muslims and I am truly sorry for you... It must be hard keeping all that hate inside..."

not as much as it's easy for muslims to consider the life of others worth nothing.

Beside being the typical hypocritical, double standards holder muslim that you are you can be sure about one thing. Whatever the west will do about the muslim problem will consider deportation as option before killing.

Muslims around the world use killing before anything else.

Enjoy the goods and freedoms of the west, the goods and freedoms that non-muslims can only dream of in YOUR lands.
