Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"

Submitted by Joshua (United States), Jan 30, 2007 at 23:06

...that this whole discussion was started concerning the validity of Walid Shoebat and turned into a discussion of the validity of Islam as well as Walid.

At least that's what I'm guilty of...

The fact is that Walid is the sort of person who is extremely important to the world because he pulls no punches in regard to exposing the true nature of Islam. Yes, his life is in danger because of it ; and no, you cannot invalidate his claims based on the fact that he has not gone into hiding. In fact, not going into hiding validates him even more because what good could he do by hiding himself away? Trying to prolong his own life by becoming inaccessable does nothing to help expose the truth of Islam, and by the way, all of our lives are in less danger because of his unselfish motives.

I've noticed a number of comments on this discussion board so far and the ones that strike me as most hateful are the ones that are trying to mock Walid, the Bible, or poeple who hold either as credible. Spiritual blindness is a condition brought on by one of the things God despises most; and that is hate.

Unfortunately ignorance can lead to the same end.

If you find yourself defending Walid Shoebat, you must realize that you are engaged in a spiritual battle.

If you find yourself mocking him or spreading lies you must realize you are defending hate and ignorance.
