The hate of Islamism against West is not intelligent

Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism

Submitted by I.l Nath (Spain), Jan 20, 2004 at 07:10

I have read the main article and the two comments. I have to say that both comments are for me lot more interresting than the article itself.

I agree with Dyan,S. that Islamism is not compatible with a real democracy (just give a look around the islamic countries). Islam maybe it is, but Islamism it is not. How is a democracy to stand that half of a society (women) be considered to have less importance than the other (men)?. That is just the most simple example, but there are lot others.

I agree with Iqbal Ahmed that the western policies in the middle east are giving good reasons to the each time more fanatic islamists to promote war (or terrorism, say it as you like; you kill me and I kill you, that's the idea). About the Indian sub-contnent I desagree, and I think that one of the biggest nonsense of the Bush's team is supporting Pakistan, which is the biggest refuge for islamic terrorists in the world. Let's see how long they are taking to convert Pakistan with P. Musharraf included into the second Afganistan.... Just a matter of time (no so long...).

But about the title of my comment: I think the hate of islamists againts West is a matter of jealousy more than any other thing. God has very little to see in all this. They are each time reacher and powerfull and we all poor muslims are each time poorer and less developed in comparison to them. But tell me, why instead of complaining and employing the whole day in thinking how to hurt West more and better, you all muslim countries don't employ your time working hard?. Why you all muslim countries employ so much money buying guns and promoting terrorist groups when your people has no proper education and health system?. Instead of bleaming us of your problems you should have the courage to face them, asume them, and fight to go out of them. But fight with your system, with your politicians, with the mafias, with the extremists that are living like God and sending others to die. In other words, behave as men if you are.
