Regretfuly, I must agree with those who take issue

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

Submitted by Francis W. Thornton (Canada), Aug 13, 2002 at 11:43

It is with some regret, that I must agree with our friends on the vision you have raised of your belief in the "Tooth Fairy" and "Santa Claus". Assuming the man from the CIA really had made the statement in grafitti, it was a statement of truth. I simply doubt, it was made by the CIA.

I actually did a double take, when I read your article and assumed immediately, that there were reasons better known to yourself why you had made such comment.

I made no comment therefore, at that time. Now I ask, why did you make such a statement at all.

My kind suggestion to you, is to take a look at the book, "Inside Islam" by Reza F. Safa. The author is a former radical Shiite Muslim.

Christians more easily understand from where the evil of Islam stems; it is Islam's rejection of Jesus of Nazareth as the Son of God and its penchant to dominate the world in order to have the world worship a substitute. That is why Christians are persecuted by Islam. I am sure you have heard about this most recently.

You must understand that while George W. Bush is the commander in chief, Islam's commander in chief is this entity known as allah.

My regards to you and your team.
