To Oliver: West should NEVER reconsider FREEDOM over the SUBMISSION to any form of Human dictatorship

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone
in response to reader comment: THE WEST WILL NEVER 'RECONSIDER' FREEDOM

Submitted by Syed Rafey Husain (Pakistan), Jul 2, 2007 at 05:00

"I'm sorry Syed, the West will never reconsider FREEDOM - it is our most precious possession."

Dear Oliver, West should never reconsider FREEDOM, over the SUBMISSION to any form of Human dictatorship (May it be Arab Kingship, Queen & King of UK, President of USA or for that matter Pope). And I am with you shoulder to shoulder on this.

But think about justice and calming down reactive souls around the world with your words.

Think about modern "interest based economy and banking" has deprived Asian and African societies and has taken the FREEDOM to live, let alone FREEDOM of soul. Although Oliver, you know, interest is prohibited for the followers of Quran, Bible and Taurah.

And you know that Rushdie is Asian by birth, ask him he will tell you situation in which people are living in India, if you do not believe me.

Don't you have a heart for to work for the FREEDOM of people who are the slaves of "interest"?

"your Imams teach you to love death rather than life".

If by death you mean suicide bombing, I always think contract is better than war. But sometimes war is inevitable. But in general sense, I myself prefer and teach everyone to love ever lasting life here after as compared to this short worldly life.

"it's history has proven it to be 'the kiss of death' to all who have encounted it and have resisted."

Give me a reference of book and particular incident.

"Like the gift of the Holy Land (Canaan) to the descendants of Abraham, ISAAC and Jacob (Israel)."

I am also a descendant of Abraham. Give me a path to Mosque in Canaan to pray All Mighty. Will you pray with me to our One True Creator?

Oliver, Canaan or nearby land is for those who surrender to All Mighty. You know Taurah which makes it clear "No Obedience No Land". And you know Bani-Israel has been killed many times and land was taken away because of no obedience like once by king Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon.

"Perhaps Islam should reconsider SUBMISSION"

Oliver, talk about people. Islam has no reality without people. Let you and me surrender to God of Abraham and submit our will to Him. This statement will clear our heart more.

My love to you.
