Not if it causes menace

Reader comment on item: Study the Koran?

Submitted by Brother Daniel Tobin (United States), Jan 20, 2004 at 13:49

Assalam Alaykum: Islam should not be studied if it leads to more blood shed as so many arab nationalists are intent on. The Moslem menace has been underestimated by so many Jews and Christians and alienated so many people in to atheism that it seems to me a reformation or rebellion against extremist elements of Islam is impossible.
I certainly hope that I am wrong, and that the West's desire for affordable transportation and energy will prevent us from negotiating on foreigners terms. I would like to see the Moslems take care of their own problems and see photographs of blood drives for United States Marines who have been, and will probably continue to be a force for stability in moslem countries. Insha allah,Brother Tobin
