Reader comment on item: A Muslim reformation?

Submitted by Tova Mattero (United States), Oct 5, 2003 at 19:48

I think it will be very hard for Muslims in this country to come forward in a real movement bcause the US government really doesn't want peace, whether it's peace with Islam or peace with Israel. Our government speaks with forked tongue. I'd rather live here than in any other country, but I refuse to close my eyes to what the government has been responsible for (largely for oil). We set up most of the tyrants and still support them; we trained them; we've turned our backs on the horrible massacres in many of the middle eastern countries, and still refuse to see Saudi Arabia for the enemy that it is. Unless Americans wake up to what is happening in our country and start to demand changes, I see little hope for Muslim reformation. I hope I'm wrong, but I believe a serious study of our history bears me out.
