Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Greg Lee (United States), Mar 16, 2004 at 17:34

Islam is not the religon of peace.

1. Islam was spread through conquest and through forced conversions.

2. If you do not believe in Islam then you are considered an infidel and thus have less rights and are seen as being less then muslim.

3. The Koran is contradictory in its message of peace and violence.

4. Palestine is a land originally held by Jews and Christians. The actual occupiers are muslims who live there.

5. Other religons in muslim lands are not tolerated by Islamic countries.

6. Muslims claim that they are being victimized when in reality they have oppressed and victimized millions throughout history.

7. Islam oppresses all minorities and women and uses the Koran to justify this.

8. Muslims blame the west for their woes when they should look inward to their own countries and leaders for blame.

9. The Koran states that muslims should start jihad wherever they are. This way of thinking causes Muslims to justify violent acts and causes conflict with the indigenous populations.
