Gullible Americans

Reader comment on item: Identifying Moderate Muslims

Submitted by M. Wolf (United States), Nov 30, 2004 at 12:00

We are familiar with orthodox Jews, orthodox Christians, ultra-orthodox Jews and Christians, even ultra right Jews and Christians. But why are we not familiar with orthodox Muslims. All we hear is Islamist terrorist, Muslim terrorists or simply Muslims...

Ask yourself one question: up until the fall of Communism, why there were no Islamists or Muslim terrorists in your main stream media? if Islam and Muslims were such a menance to the world for last 1400 years, how come the Americans were not aware about it until 15 years ago?

How many of you know that millions of Muslims around the world fought to defeat Communism from Egypt to Indonesia? Subsequently millions of Muslims laid down their lives to defeat Communism on the behalf of America including defeating the Soviets in Afghanistan. Israel was receiving Soviet funds then and still a socialist country receiving US funds now. (i wonder how many of you are going to call me anti-Semite now). where there was no significant Muslim popluation, America has to fight communism at great cost in blood and money, example:vietnam, south america etc.

The worst terrorist atrocities on US soil has claimed about 3000 innocent lives. The world agrees with it. The world now points out the killing of at least 100,000 (read lancet) innocent Iraqis along with insurgents and terrorists. Why does america refuse to take the moral stand and accept the war crimes it is committing in a country it invaded with ever changing reasons (wmd, saddam, democracy, alqueda, insurgents, zarqawi, elections..) Don't buy that collateral damage etc. as acceptable. People in this country don't have a clue about the impact of depleted uranium US is using in iraq now or the 500, 1000 and 2000 lbs bombs it uses in residential area. So much for a Judeo-Christian nation without any remorse. The Christianity in the US today has nothing to do with Jesus Christ.

The world see us as the biggest terrorists. America and Americans are now in more danger than ever. For all the ignorant Americans fallen to the twisted neocon propaganda.

Here is a fact: the world will cease to exist when 1.5 billion people of any religion have no moderates and turn into extremists.
