Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: Whatever

Submitted by Seamus MacNemi (United States), Jun 19, 2007 at 20:10

Hey Jack, You keep missing my point. I never said that Islam means piece. I KNOW Islam means submission.. What you don't seem to understand is that the Christians have pulled that same card from their deck in expecting the rest of us to "SUBMIT" to Christ. We're caught between a rock and a hard place. On one side are the Christians and on the other side are the Muslims both hell bent to either convert us or kill us and that has been going on for a longer time than you seem to recognize.

We have borne the burden of over two thousand years of continuous warfare and oppression and it's only been within my own generation that we have been able to call ourselves finally free. Muslims are no better and no worse than Christians in this matter. Neither one will simply leave us alone to live our own lives in peace. If they are not attacking us openly they continue to try to trick us into converting by creating phony worship services and inviting us in to celebrate and then turning the whole thing into an hour long harrangue against the "JUDAIZERS" of the gospels. They've even got a phony outfit called "JEWS FOR JESUS" run by apostate Jews. It's something like "JEWS FOR JIHAD" and there are those in the world.

Your words and your whole mode of expression make me feel very uneasy. What are you trying to bring into this house anyway? You are just a little bit too radical in your expressions. You refuse to admit that there have ever been amicable relations between Islam and the rest of Humanity. I know from our history that that is not true. Muslims saved our butts in the fourteenth and fifteenth century. It was the Church that was then our bitter enemy. My folk do not forget those who have been our benefactors, like wise we do not forget those who have been our detractors and persecutors. When you bring in that character Mike who ever he is the hackles on the back of my neck stand up and I begin to feel like a cornered cat. At that point my only instinct is to attack. I do not like being made to feel that way.

Submitting....
