Moderate Islam

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by Observer (Germany), Sep 12, 2010 at 11:08

Thank you for not throwing all Moslems into one basket as is so common and usual nowdays and noting that there are moderate Moslems. In Germany since Sarrazins's books one again sees daubings like "Death to all Moslems" or "Kill Islam" etc. People forget that US Moslems were also killed on 9/11 in the world trade centers and in an effort to oversimplify, do not draw any distinction. It reminds me of the days when German Jewish refugees were interned overseas (eg Australia, USA) as alleged Nazis. Life is more complex, and people are individuals, and the flames of ethnic hatred can be increased very easily.
