Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Your Brother (United Kingdom), Oct 24, 2007 at 20:41

I am disappointed to see so much hate & anger being targeted at Muslims.. Why is it that every non-muslim feels they are qualified to (so harshly) criticise a religion they know very little about?

Islam has existed since long before we were all created.. Yet, it is only in recent times it has been attacked so viciously & labelled as a 'terrorist' religion. Ask yourself: why is it that 'islamic terrorism' did not exist 100 years ago? Could it be, perhaps, MODERN events have distorted your view? Hitler followed Christianity. Does this mean Christianity preaches mass murder? Would you believe it if your TV told you so?

Islam is the true victim of terrorism. Everyday Muslims overlook ignorant predujices & attacks. I sit here & I read comments of bitter hatred & anger & it breaks my heart but I forgive you. Islam has over a billion followers, not bad for a 'sect', huh? If it really was as hostile as you are led to believe, 1 in 5 people wouldve let you know by now.. I thank you for your time & I hope you research into all avenues in your personal quest for knowledge, for there is more to learn about Islam than can be covered through this forum.
