we should ask ?

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Nov 16, 2007 at 22:03

We should really question if fear of islam is irrational or ok.

We should ask someone if they know if islam is safe or scary.

Let's ask the people who were killed in the first attack on the World Trade Centre in 1993 and also the people killed on September 11 2001, those who were murdered in Africa during two bomb attacks on embasies, or the 11 athletes from Israel killed at the Munich Olympic Games in 1972, , the Armenian killed during the genicide by islamists, or the six million Jews killed by the nazis with full help from the islamists,or for today we could ask the Christians of Sudan who are now victims of a twenty first century genocide.

Oh, wait we can't ask these people if islam is to be feared or respected, because by the hands of islamists they are dead.

May be we shall have to decide for ourselves if fearing the islamists is rational or a phobia.
