Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: Islamophobia, really?

Submitted by Islamophobia no more... (United Arab Emirates), Mar 29, 2007 at 16:38

many scholars in the east and the west have been addressing the issues you've raised on the misinterpretation (Wahabi/ignorant) and the misrepresentation (what your types do) of Islam... including Hamza Yusuf

you and the Islamophobes out there are only focusing on the negative aspect of the eastern hemisphere now which is still (from my experience all over the Muslim world) a minority... the majority caucus of the Muslims is stll sufi had you not known... the Wahabis tend to make the News quite often hence they appear more in number... Sufis run from ostentation and conceit hence you wont find alot of them running to the major news outlets and + most Sufis/sunnis are humble hence you won't find them giving opinions over issues that scholars only should give their opinion...

thirdly, Hamza Yusuf followed the greek orthodox sect of Christianity... that doesn't mean he is Greek... infact in one of his lectures he said "Scot/ Scot Irish" - the lecture title is "Changing the Tides" you can find it on you tube... listen to it it'll help ya...studying in Saudi Arabia doesn't mean you automatically study in Medna university (Wahabi)... there are big and well known sufi scholars and saints in Medina/Mecca and Jeddah that still teach privately in their homes...
have you ever been to the Muslim world? i wonder whats behind the skewed perception of Islam commonly found in Islamophobes...

in fact i see more hatred coming out of your posts than the people you're talking about in your post...
