Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Freedom has a price (Germany), Aug 30, 2010 at 03:43

Islam is a religion of subservience and "blind" faith. A minority of followers stand up to say that it is a religion of peace. The religious code may be easily twisted in any faith, but followers of islam do little to rebuff the islamist who chooses to use the blind followers to carry out their cowardly deeds.

I have spent years in muslim countries, and I have very little respect for the system set up. Show me a "first world" country that is muslim majority based.....there are none. All the countries that are majority muslim are poor, under-educated, and seeking a strong hand to guide them, usually corrupt as they come.

So is islam evil? No, but it, as any other faith throughout history, has allowed for corruption and terrorism to overwhelm the core tenets of the religion. This is due to the failure of the follower to fight/ resist/ rectify the influence of supposedly minority of islamists to cause widespread suffering. Lemmings.
