Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Diana Nielsen (United States), Jan 23, 2004 at 14:32

And I tell YOU "Saud" or whoever you are. I am a 50 year old woman and I and the rest of my nation are NOT ""of you and NEVER will be!
You need to grow up. I know that you have been lied to and indoctrinated all your life, but that is no excuse to make such an assumptions.
Do you live in an unfree land by choice? Are you someone with power and money?
I tell you even if both these things are true; you may NOT believe what you wish; you may ONLY believe the majority view or you must keep it secret or you will be persecuted and maybe even killed!
Does it not ever occur to you why "the truth" needs to be protected by the threat of persecution or death?

We WILL stand for freedom against so called "Islamic" tyranny, regulated thought, indoctrination and any other thing we think is evil though it costs our very lives (whether you think we are afraid of you or not).

The very fact that you felt you would write such a thing PROVES you have indeed been thinking about your fear of the West.
You should not fear freedom and the good life so much: it's wonderful!

There are those of us who hate pornography, crime and other evils, but we certainly will NEVER be willing to give our freedoms just to get rid of those things or take away another's.

I tell you those that tell you the way they force you to believe (even if you do not have to be forced) is go to FREE lands so they can do what they wish without you seeing!
