Reader comment on item: Violent Jihadis v. Lawful Jihadis

Submitted by Culturist John (United States), Dec 28, 2008 at 22:27

The idea that the some Muslims would correctly interpret the Koran to say Buddha statues jive well with Islamic monotheism is incorrect. To not get this is to miss the basics of the faith. The closer one follows Islam, the more violent you must be. It is good that most people do not read. If the Imams left, many more Muslims would be mellow. The Al-Queda style Islamists are - unfortunately - true to the creed. This is precisely why we need to stop allowing Wahabbi funding of mosques in the West; it ignites the potentially lazy Muslims who don't really practice their faith. www.culturism.us
