Just like the KKK

Reader comment on item: [The Boim Trial:] Exploiting the Koran to Terrorize

Submitted by Kenneth S. Besig (Israel), Dec 14, 2004 at 10:43

Although the members of the Ku Klux Klan did abuse some of the teachings in the Jewish and Christian Bibles to justify their unholy behavior towards racial, ethnic, and non Christian religious minorities, fundamentalist Islam is far more radical in its abuse of the Koran to promote its murderous agenda, and it is also far more extreme than the KKK ever was in its use of violence towards those it considers its opponents, whether or not they are Moslems. I am very encouraged by the court decision you mentioned and even though the fundamentalist Islamic organizations are much wealthier than the KKK ever dreamt of being, this is an excellent beginning.
