rebuttal to answer to "educate yourself"

in response to reader comment: answer to "educate yourself"

Submitted by Jim Thomsa (United States), Nov 17, 2008 at 21:22

I have studied Middle East politics and it was Sayyid Muhammed Hosein Fadlallah That provided the theoretical framework for the acceptable use of violence only in response violence. It is not in the Qur'an despite how hard you look, and even harder if you cannot read Arabic. If you really want to understand and stop political violence, then you must first educate yourself in politics and then the culture of the area you would like to understand.

Trust me it is very important.
