Reader comment on item: Al-Qaeda Invites Me to Join Its Ranks

Submitted by Jay (Canada), Dec 21, 2007 at 11:35

These extremists try and tell us that we are killing them, innocents, and whatnot and have the guts to call the west (or anyone different than them) infidels. Yet here we are day after day reading stories about a coward (aka suicide bomber) blowing himself up in a market (no infidels there) or a mosque (I thought they frowned on attacking religious sites) killing hundreds of innocent people, MUSLIM people. I wouldn't care so much if they attacked military targets but when they attack women, children, and people praying it just smacks me of hypocrisy.

Ya, Islam isn't a violent religion. HAHAHA Why is it then that when someone, ANYONE, is perceived as insulting Mohammad or w/e, the streets are suddenly filled with rioting and torch bearing Muslim men, women, and children?

Constantly calling for the destruction of Israel is funny too. The way I see it, and history sees it, is that they were there first and Muslims from the middle east are the true squatters. Check history and you will see that most of the Islam faith has roots in Christianity. Now, I'm athiest so in reality I don't give two shits what they do, just leave the rest of the world alone as you self-implode because you can't come out of the dark ages and join the rest of society in advancing past the need to kill each other as a way of keeping honor or some other barbaric bs reason.
