rich but poor

Reader comment on item: Islamic Economics: What Does It Mean?

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Sep 28, 2007 at 20:41

So many islamic nations have an ungodly amount of money and yet so many muslim people live in ungodly conditions.

There is extreme poverty in most islamic states. Most muslims live pathetic lives while a few are wealthy. The reason for this is the system in place. Recall years back a country like Russia, it has extreme natural resourses but most people lived in extreme poverty while a few were rich. It was the system, in this case communism. There is a sameness between communism and islam.

Both systems control and abuse the masses. They create false enemies to blame the people's troubles on. With communism it was the "west" , with islam it is Jews, Zionists, Christians et all. There is always someone or something to blame for the trouble the people have. It is never the fault of the evil system or it's evil creators. Marx for communism and mohammed for islam.

We all saw how communism hurt people both inside those countries and out. Now islam has been doing this , presently is doing it and ... maybe in the future.

Will islam continue for a while longer or roll over and die like communism ?

Or will islam have to be taken out like the way nazi facism was defeated by total war ?
