Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Islam Exposed

It is tragedy that acts of few people are attributed to Islam. Any terrible act in which innocent people lost lives irrespective of any organization is condemnable. I condemn aggressive policy of Hamas or AlQuaeda or any radical Islamic organization which hurt human beings. But western countries supported war against Iraq, in which hundred of thousands people are died, millions are injured and economic loss can not be calculated.

George Bush, told media that he was told by God to liberate Iraq people. Does it mean Christianity believes in aggression and why not act of George Bush is not attributed to whole Christianity? Simply, it is very difficult for partial critics to utter such words which are used for Islam. Islam is most misunderstood religion in the West. It is rightly said; give ear to every body to voice to few. I would request before criticizing Islam, please refer Quran or any authentic Islamic book in order to make up mind.
