Reader comment on item: The Muslims are Coming! The Muslims are Coming!

Submitted by Stephen M. St. Onge (United States), Jul 27, 2005 at 02:56

Linda:

      Go study some history.  Once, the Islamic world was wealthy (for its time), powerful, cultured, and generally led the world in all areas except representational painting.

      Then, they stopped, dead.  They haven't produced anything new in the last 800 years.  And their culture hasn't adapted well to the changes imposed by the West when it conquered most of the world in the 16th through 19th centuries.

      And what's the big Muslim response to us?  'We have abandoned true Islam, and must return to the past.'  In other words, don't learn anything knew.

      Their culture is frozen and they must thaw it out.

Adam Rasheed:

      If you'll stop making excuses that the reason you people are poor and oppressed is what we do to you (it's actually the way you treat each other), and if you'll supress the terrorists, then we'll be happy to ignore you.

      But the people doing terrorism in the world today are almost all Muslims.  If you won't stop that, we will.

Jodie:

      . If Sharia produced the things you think it does, there would be no poor Muslims in the world.

      And if Muslims would concede the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state, the present troubles would end quickly.

      And of course, all that stuff in the Koran calling on Muslims to conquer doesn't really mean what it says.

"And I am Marie of Romania."
