Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by awake (United States), Apr 21, 2003 at 13:16

Jihad... Is not a proclamation of a holy war in defense of Islam. It is a declaration like the crusades against all non-muslims. If you are not muslim then they want you dead.

I live near Dearborn, Michigan and I have a lot of Arab friends. You can not stop them from breathing death and destruction to all jews and boasting how great and pure their religion is. There is no dought from the reaction I see in the world and in the US that there is a war and Islam is in it. It isn't a war against Islam... It is a war derived from Islam.

I am told by Muslims that isn't true. I hear about the death of muslims in the world. They don't cry for the Jews that are killed by palestinian gunmen or others. I was told by my friend that the Muslim that killed a room full of Jewish girls (13 years old) at a Bat Mitzvah celebration in a religious place of worship was perfectly justified in murdering the little girls. This is an american arab muslim. That is what muslim means. It means that they can kill anyone that is not muslim and it is ok. That includes little girls.

But if you spend 600 thousand dollars on a missile to try to prevent a civilian casuality and a civilian gets hurt (human shield) then you are evil. When muslims stop trying to kill everyone and spend more time trying to help people then I will listen. I am awake and I hear what they are saying. Islam is a theology of hatred and doesn't yield for anyone. Whay do they have to do to wake you up? Muslims have killed more people then Hitler or Stalin, yet we look at them as if it was some sort of misunderstanding. It isn't.
