Between Jihadoxication and freedom

Reader comment on item: Teach Arabic or Recruit Extremists?

Submitted by Harrak (Canada), Sep 6, 2007 at 00:09

It is obvious that Dr Pipes is determined to a battle where the winning face will be the extinction of Muslim extremist from the educational posts. This battle in fact should be fought by Muslim families -tax payers- who risk to have their kids instructed perhaps the hatred of the other or non-sensical ambitions like the dream to a Caliphate.

Muslim families would better join the hands with people like Dr Pipes and benifit from his expertise; if not to eliminate the radical Islam as Dr Pipes does, then it would be to have children that will become one day good citizens and appreciate the country that welcome them. Not the children that yearn for the Mawdudi Jihadoxication. Children that will understand that in their Islam, killing one person is equal to killing all the people..

Muslim families should understand that they are free to be Muslims and NOT free to Islamize freedom. Because it is through freedom that people should chose to be Muslim or not.

Just before I forget something, there was nothing worse in the history of Islam than the establishment of the Caliphate rule. It is thru this system that the dearest people to the prophet of Islam were beheaded in Karbala and at best were cleansed from the Arabian peninsula to seek refuge in the Atlas of Morocco, to suffer the cold of Iranian mountains and taste the harshness of Indian weather. If some people hate Islam, they may wish for a Caliphate.
