Reader comment on item: Finding Moderate Muslims - More Questions
in response to reader comment: Dhimmi

Submitted by Larry (Canada), Nov 7, 2008 at 09:51

In response to Ahmed. A Dhimmi who lives in the Middle East has no choice because he is automatically a second class citizen because he is a non-Muslim. He has no rights and freedoms and is taxed at a higher rate than are Muslims. What you are in America is a whiner and cryer who believes that as a Muslim you are better than non-Muslim Americans. Why you don't work, vote and fear deportation is probably because you are unworthy of living in America. I know plenty of Muslims who work and own businesses.

Your second statement is incorrect as Islam is a political, social and religious control of every aspect of your life; while the bond between western people is varied because we are not controlled by religion, politics and social aspects in our lives, unless we so choose. We have the right of freedom to choose in the west and you do not have the right to choose in the Middle East how to lead your own life. You treat women and Dhimmi's like dirt because the Koran and your Imams tell you too.

You are not of the Abrahamic faith because the Abrahamic faith's principles are about a God of good who Loves his creation and would never tell his creation to kill in his name. The Koran tells you to kill in the name of God and justifies stealing the property of those you kill. The Abrahamic faith tells us to Love everyone and the Koran tells you to Hate everyone, different from you. Terrorism around the world is commited by 99% Muslim against non-Muslims.

Peace and Tolerance in Islam is only from Muslim to Muslim. Whereas Peace and Tolerance in the western world is for everyone who will live in Peace and Tolerance with us. Murdering and taking hostage young children in schools is intolerable to us, but Muslims believe that even children and peaceful people are legitimate targets to be killed. Lastly, if you are going to comment you should first know what you are talking about, rather than acting the poor downtrodden Muslim. Perhaps you should go home since you don't want to assimilate to our western world, but want the western world to assimilate to you.
