Mohammed, you're wrong

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: OSAMA'S TAPES

Submitted by Don (Pakistan), May 10, 2008 at 22:47

The bin Ladens are a huge family. Osama's father, in the 60's and 70's the owner of the largest construction firm in the world (whom the Americans dealt with in the building of much of the Saudi infrastrucure), had 57 children and sometimes divorced one of his wives a week or two after he married her just to keep the limit to four (so he could remarry).

There have never been any ties between Osama bin Laden and the Bushes. Osama bin Laden wasn't even raised by his father because he divorced Osama's mother in no time, and has been considered a pariah in the bin Laden family since the 80's. As a Saudi, you should know that.

But, as a Muslim, you are prone to believe anything your conspiracy and excuse-making imams, clerics, and fellow Muslims tell you. Why? For the same reason conspiracy theories and down-right lies are so prevelent in the Muslim world: Muslims, because of Koranic teachings, have little reasoning and inquiry skills. You're brought up from babies to never question anything! Nothing is to be challenged, from the Koran to your parents to your imams. You Muslims are prisoners of your own minds, and it is because of your "religion"...
