My comments as regards the Crusades, Sept. 11th and other matters

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

Submitted by Diana Nielsen (United States), Jan 23, 2004 at 15:08

I am sad to see so many ignorant comments by so many Muslims on this website.
The "crusades" happened because Muslims went into Europe, SWORD IN HAND, to take Christian land and property plain and simple. Those that say otherwise are simply lying.

I will NOT EVER apologize for the "Crusades". And if too many Muslims again insist on turning to the "sword", they will find our nation's answer to them most unpleasant! We will be very patient and those that "wield the sword" against my nations and it's citizen's will be hunted down. Those violaters, if they are very, very lucky, they will be put into jail or they will be unlucky and killed outright.

Even now so called "moderate" Muslim organizations like Cair tries to shut up any criticism, justified or not, such is their fear of the truth (which is only a step away from having no freedom of speech) about either this religion or some of its adherents.

Wonderful "Islam"currently subjegates millions of women, persecutes so many of either sex and allows either no freedom of religion or religation to second class citizenship (or a life of fear from some of the adherents of the "peaceful" religion.

As to so many supposed converts to Islam, I am witness to how well some Muslims lie about their own religions history of forceable conquest (including lyiing about the true history of how the Quran was put together), and about the atrocities that even now occur in so many "Islamic" lands. ... What is one to do when these lies are allowed, taught and even encouraged and paid for when those in power believe the "ends justifies the means"?

As to Christianity, unfortunately, America didn't know she was going to beset by an enemy of freedom otherwise perhaps more Pastors would have been more interested in educating their populace rather than in money collection.

I believe the numbers of converts is VASTLY overrated; as I said before their are many that teach a lie is okay if it serves the end cause. As to the Muslim person who claimed some nefarious illumenty or freemason organization is responsible for Sept. 11th: gird up your loins, boy, Usama, the Muslim, took the credit on behalf of Islamism, and is yet to face the responsibility for that horrific act.

We know that self professed Muslims committed the barbaric acts themselves and we know they were NOT influenced by any organization other than those who preach a violent Islamic interpretation of Islam. They had it in their mind that we would abbandon Israel because of their cowardly attack.
That simply, is not going to happen.
