As someone who just met the man....

Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: What a nerve?

Submitted by AF (United States), Feb 18, 2007 at 19:15

....I had an interesting conversation with Mr. Shoebat over dinner just last night. And he raised a question that is very valid. If Islam is TRULY a religion of peace and you are a TRUE Muslim, why are you not going to those that are usurping your religion of peace (the radical islamic fundamentalists) and teaching them what the Koran truly says? Instead you focus your energy on arguing with those who can see that there are peaceful Muslim peoples without denying the fact that there are many who use Islam to promote terror, death and hatred of all who do not call "Allah" god.

Could it be that you know that you would be called a heretic and killed by them along with all the other "kuffars"? And for your information Mr. Shoebat did not speak a word of hatred against the Muslim people in 5 hours of listening to him speak and in private over dinner. He only spoke against the hatred that the radical fundamentalists are propagating.

Maybe you should hear him speak, you may change your mind about him.
