Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam

Submitted by donvan (United States), May 18, 2008 at 09:08

The ability to ignore reality and embrace ones own belief as fact is a common human trait. No matter the actual events and acts of individuals who act on the teachings of the mythology advanced by Muhammed. The mythology he advanced has demeaned the entire notion of religion, the notion that religion must elevate all human beings . "Islamic" teachings clearly encourage , infact require, those who have internalized the dogma of Muhammed to force non Mu'slams to 'submit' to the rule of the so called "Mu'slams".

This is not a recent development, but has been a central theme since Muhammed, in his demented rantings, imposed on the desert tribes of Arabia, the insane notion of forced conversion. This is not conjecture, but is documented and replete in the historical record. You would have us ignore entire countries which have fallen under the sword of Muhammed, and the pathetic conditions Mu'slams, not to mention non Mu'slams.

How can you possibly assert that the Mu'slams of Saudi Arabia are treated the same as non Mu'slams? To do so is ignorance at best and delusional.
