Reader comment on item: Another Islamist Soldier Turns Terrorist in Texas

Submitted by oostIndische (Indonesia), Aug 5, 2011 at 11:13

"I cannot be a soldier in the U.S. Army and continue to remain true to Islam.". The statement is normal for this type of Muslim.

Even in Islam majority nation like Indonesia, which the army/country never do something wrong to Muslims across the globe. A lot of my Indonesian Muslim "fellows" share that view. To remain true to Islam for them is to change the govt with the caliphate/sharia system, and fight the Jews/zionists/Americans/kafirs/infidels.

Although there are a lot of Muslims who don't share that particular view, but most of them could not and would not reject/condemn it, because that view have points in the Koran.
