Imperialism and Islam

Reader comment on item: Mecca Mean Time?
in response to reader comment: Another victim if Arabian ignorance

Submitted by AY (United States), Aug 23, 2009 at 22:22

I read your comments. Your assumption that I speak Arabic was wrong, like many other assumption that you have. I did not understand many sentences in Arabic and I definitely have not read the book you were refering to. Any one can have his own view of Islam and I am not going to defend other people's ideas; rather what I believe what Islam is.

You have said Islam divide people; it does not. All people are equal in Islam and this egalitarian view has created such fear as yours among imperial powers. It does not let some people abuse and steal other people resources. That is why Cambridge and Harvard has middle east departments so your supremacist approach "look" scientific. Well, it does not; but nice shot.

I do not live in Canada anymore; thanks god. I went there to see how other people live; well it was not my taste. To promise that I "obey" another person and her heirs (see the oath of citizenship of Canada). It is disgusting. I admire you Americans on that aspect to give British empire a good lesson. Also, I admire your religious country; I love to see each bill says "in god we trust"; yes we do trust in god. I guess you are isolated on that aspect in US.

About University, thanks for asking; yes I have two doctorate degrees although it is none of your business.

About Canada; I have a lot to say. Poor, uneducated, racist, no self-respect. In one word, they are disgusting. No self-identity, aristocratic society, who are freezing to death. I am glad that US has this humanitarin approach to help Canadians, otherwise they would have died so many years earlier because of the cold. They do not have anything from themselves except the bigotry and a Queen.

May god bless us all and guide us.
