An invitation to Muslims around the world.

Reader comment on item: The Key Issue of Hamas vs. Israel

Dear Dr Pipes: I will begin with a quote from your above interview and after that I will switch to my invitation. You said, "Palestinians have a full century's record of caring far more to pursue their anti-Zionist passions than to improve their own lives. They constitute the most radicalized population on earth."

I would invite all Muslims to abandon their 1400 year old hatred toward Jews and other religions primarily based on how these good folks choose to pray to God. In our current world, our common problem is that people are moving away from religions/God/righteousness. As long as someone prays with humility, it is frivolous to ask how they pray. So, dear Muslims, please give up your hate toward non-Islamic scriptures and worship and rise above your narrow-minded distinctions.

I see professional Muslim women in Hijabs and Burkhas wearing nice clothes and carrying fashionable purses in cafes in Western cities. Let us give the same chance to Muslim women and children and men in Palestine and Jordan and elsewhere. Imagine a Muslim mathematician from Gaza solving the next problem of Mathematics or a musician from Amman creating a symphony. Why are you ruining it all for 70 or 1400 years?
