Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]
in response to reader comment: Don't blame Islam? Blame Mohammed?

There is an old saying about "not being able to see the forest because of the trees." The movement by the Muslim Brotherhood to return Islam to its roots threatens the very soul of humanity. Allah and Muhammed may only require "submission," but the absolute requires "critical thinking" and "free will."

If, as most mystics teach, it is the individuals responsibility to align himself with the "All" in pursuit of the fourth level of conciousness; do you really think that being a Muslim releases an individual from making moral judgments?
