I Agree and Disagree with commenter AM

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

Submitted by Ayesha A. (United States), Feb 11, 2005 at 17:21

I agree with AM that most of what is described can happen under islamists ; talibans did that in Afghanistan. But disagree that disgusting people use Islam to do it. Talibans spent many years studying quran, hadith and prophet's biography and knew their religion better than most muslims. They implemented "sharia" in the country which is all based on quran and sunna.
In recent history no other country implemented islamic sharia laws to the extent as talibans did. There is no sense blaming wahabis, Saudis, Talibans ,Bin Ladens, Khomeinis and other islamists for what they do. They just follow what is written in Quran or what prophet said and did. Any muslim who says otherwise is either ignorant of his own religion and history or using "taqiyya" to fool "infidels".
