Reader comment on item: A History of Muslim Terrorism against Jews in the United States
in response to reader comment: Avoiding Zionism: Avoiding Hatred

Submitted by The Last Propht (United States), May 24, 2009 at 02:16

"Islam itself was tolerant as many Jewish scholars prospered in Islamdom and contributed to Islamic sciens"
Islam was tolerant as long as others paid the religious tax (Jizya).

"We cannot blame the victim for resistance."
As Muslims all over the world are bent on the destruction of Israel, they are not the real victims.

"associating Islam with Terrorism and legitimate resistence with sabotage" .
These associations are not without reason and strengthened by the acts of Islamists and the support among the Islamic community for such acts. These associations are further strengthened by the fact that the Madinan Surahs of the Muslim holy book, the Quran, contain verses that encourage violence, though Muslims tout the preceding Meccan surahs to support their claim of Islam's peacefulness.
