How can you say this...

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Mehdi (United Kingdom), Apr 26, 2004 at 18:22

I read all this posts, and most of them are disappointing. Ok lets start with this: islam cannot live in peace with other countries. well OK, it cannot. Not because it doesn't want to but because countries like UK, USA and Israel don't let them to live in peace. If you look back at history of all these contries, well ok apart from Israel, led the politics of divide and conquer. Pakistan and India was divided in two so Britain can rule this countryand blackmail others by supporting one or the other in it is own interests. Palestinians were attacked by Israel in demand for more land, again they start the war. Indonesia, well they live in peace as far as I am concerned.

Second, if Islam is a lie how come it is fast growing religion in Europe? and how come more people from non muslim countries join it? If you ever had a chance to read Quran, I'm sure you will be amazed!! As it is the best book ever written!

I'm muslim and I can say thay I am a bit dissappointed in the way how muslims live. First of all about the womens look, I totally agree they have to cover their hair and follow all what it is said in Quran, but they don't have to use black colors or cover their faces, because by doing that they reject the rest of the world! But believe me, whatever is built on lie will break, and I am sure Islam will be the way of life because it is the most peacefull religion ever.

You cannot say that people like Osama represent Islam because they are using religion for their own purpose it is same as all this US channels taking people's money by reading out some passages from Bible. Extremism is always wrong, but in Quran none of that! Most of YOU probably don't even know the real meaning of Jihad!!! Jihad first of all is war with your self and not with the rest of the world. War with your self means to fight your mistakes and your minuses.

And my last point is that before you argue and make any decison about one or another topic you have to learn this topic.

Take care.
