Not all Muslims are terrorists???

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

Submitted by Ahmed (Netherlands), Mar 22, 2004 at 12:18

Sure we're not all terrorists, but when was the last time you heard and Imam preach against terrorism, or a muslim publicly denounce terrororism, or a group of muslims taking to the streets to protest against terrorism. Or an Islamic government preach about Human Rights, equality of women, and tolerance. The most recent thing we muslims have protested about amidst the threat of terrorism is the prohibition of our veils in France.

The truth is, we muslims secretly harbor a grudge against those peoples and religions who have wronged us in the past. Let's just be honest about that.

But don't forget that we have wronged other peoples and religions too: IN THE NAME OF ISLAM. Our Koran begins with condemnations agains Christians and Jews. You accuse people of earmarking all of us? Read our BOOK! Ask our own people what they think of all christians, all westerners, all Jews. Do the majority of us know that to a lot of westerners religion is not even an issue? Yes I'm muslim too, but I am ashamed at how defensive we muslims act, thereby revealing our true intentions. Let's stop being in denial, let's just get out in the open and be honest, we hate Jews and Christians because we believe they've strayed from Allah, we dream of one day ruling the world under Allah, subduing all who don't believe because all unbelievers are considered the children of Satan. And you Christians, stop being naive about your own religion. Fundamentalists Christians (most of them Republican Americans by the way) are also waiting for the 2nd coming, also seek to convert the whole world, and dream of a day when the whole world is ruled by your Christ, you hate muslims, and consider all unbelievers children of Satan, expect the "anti-Christ" to emerge from the middle east, and your brothers in the Catholic church consider non Catholics damned as well. Let's point fingers at our own people before we point it to others. Let's ask ourselves why the world treats us this way. The most we've said about terrorism is that our religion does not like it.

But our silence tells the world the obvious truth that deep inside we CONDONE THE GOALS. MY BROTHERS! TAKE A LOOK AT YOURSELVES!!! Now, tell me, how many muslims can stand up and say that?
