Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Jennifer Longley (United States), Aug 13, 2002 at 11:08

Mr. Pipes - I have enjoyed your many articles and I'm grateful to you for sharing them freely on the internet. I do however have to disagree with you concerning Islam... There is a such thing as good and evil in this world, there always has been and there always will be. It is typical for most humans to wish for a kind of peace that will only come to this world when Jesus Christ returns. I think you misunderstand religious beliefs. This isn't a case of misunderstanding, this is a case of one group's hatred of another.

Islamists won't all of a sudden stop hating Christian's and Jews if they just had the prosperity we do. A three bedroom house with attached garage with a white picket fence is not what these people want. These people want Islam to replace every other religion and they want Christians and Jews dead. It's their religion, it's what they believe. Unless you change what they believe, this is what we deal with. Its reality. They may fool people in laying low for awhile, but the objective will always be the same.

Thanks for listening. :-)
