I think you are polarizing matters in the name of 9/11

Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: 1.8 Million Christians converting to Islam because they actually believe in it makes me laugh, but 1.8 million converting because money issues, pressure, social climbing, promotions, threats, to divorce ,to marry several women….etc. makes more sense.

Dear Mr. Daniel,

I respect that your faith is different from mine, your belief is different from mine.

Muslims do not hate Christianity, they just hate the oppressors, who happen to be Christians or Jews by name. I have been in the Kingdom all my life, and I have turned out to be a perfectly neutral human being, who has at least tried to follow the teachings of the Holy Quran which is to respect the other religions. And Christianity is close to us, as we Muslims love Jesus too. Not as God's son or God himself, but as one of the most important Messengers of Allah.

I agree that there has been a lot of polarization in today's world related to Religion. But whose fault is that? Only and only the power mongering poiticians, who can see millions of people killed and fill their pockets with it.

I expect normal and educated people like you and I to move forward together towards Peace, and defeating these superpowers who become more powerful by the innocent blood that's spilt.

9/11 was a horrific moment for not just Americans, but all humanity, regardless of religion. I do not believe that an Arab would actually be rejoicing after that attack. All the folks I knew were sad about what happened. Only thing they feared was, "Oh God, please let it not be a Muslim who did this..."

Islam is a beautiful religion of Peace. The wars that took place during the time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) were necessary, and that was his role. You cannot compare and distinguish between the two Messengers. They had different conditions and different destinies to fulfill. I would never dare speak ill of Jesus (AS).

Appreciate if you check out a few videos of Dr. Zakir Naik on youtube, and find out more on Islam.
