in response to reader comment: My concern

Submitted by touati mourad (Algeria), Apr 5, 2005 at 16:53

I am awfully sorry to comment on one's viewpoints, but I feel a bit obliged to do so , in a way to clarfy certain things on Islam and Muslims...Things can not be understood superficially as they are unique to a certain religion or group, However, there are certain sociological and political considerations that should be understood before we can proceed in any analysis.

I would say that the religion has nothing to do or to be a target to blame , only if it is understood. I do Not think That Islam is scary for anyone except for only those who see things from the very narrow window. However, and surely saying the Muslims Mr. Johnatan is referring to perhaps , he is judging them from the point of view of certain customs , deeds or claims that are typical to their communities or racial stock and they have nothing to do with purity of religion. I hope that Mr. Seaward would accept to exchange contacts and friendly we may discuss the subject. Perhaps , my opinion is correct and yours is wrong , or probably you are right . Who knows , only if the matter is discussed plainly .

With due respect to anyone's opinion and anyone's creed.
