Dialogue is needed

Reader comment on item: [Freedom House report on] Saudi Venom in U.S. Mosques

Submitted by Mohammad A. Toor (United States), Feb 6, 2005 at 02:50

Going back in history through the last 4-500 hundred years of colonial rule on earth, maligning Islam by non Muslims is more prevalent.

...For 1426 years of advent of Islam was & is the culmination of Divine Message to humanity of tollerance & respect for People of the Book-Jews & Christian in particular. Moses(peace be upon him) & Jesus Christ(peace be upon him) are revered & respected by All Muslims comprising 1/4-1/5 of humanity.

Muslims were the longest lasting super power from 7-15 century Christan Calender. In Spain for 6-700 hundred years of rule is declared by the Jews as their Golden Period. Thay prospered as a community with equal rights & freedom of religion.

After the WW2, enslavement for humanity is ending & freedom for Muslims is being partially being realized. Still however, help from the developed world is needed with compassion & care. Holocast tregedy suffered by Jews & Christians in Europe must not be tolerated anywhere in the world.

Minorities' civil rights must not be compromised. Since 9/11, dialogue among Faith Communities is taking place for better understanding. More contact, communication, sharing of mutual concerns is welcome.

Last but not least, words like Venom/Wahabism/Saudi etc.as titles of articles do not foster need for much needed dialogue, more of which in needed.

Sincerely,
Mohammad A. Toor, MD.
