Reader comment on item: Hating Valentine's Day

The islamists are not about love. Valentine's Day is nothing but love. A total conflict of ideas.

I think the islamists feel that if they allow people to show love to one another it will distract them from the love, respect and fear they should have for allah and the prophet mohammed.

it is interesting that in the islamists own teachings they never teach that allah loves them, only that allah hates anyone who doesn't believe in exactly what the islamist believe.

In many parts of the islamic world arranged marriages are the standard. So regular western romance and dating is not allowed or common. Does this translate into loveless marriages and a love free society ? Is this the reason that there are so many honor killings and child abuse in islamic society ? Is this the reason why it seems that human live has little or no value in the islamist world ?

Once again the islamists have shown clearly that they are not tolerant of anyone who has different ideas than them. Does this mean that islamists who are immigrating to the west are not going to be tolerant of our western values ?
