Reader comment on item: Bush Declares War on Radical Islam

Submitted by Yair Weinstock (United States), Oct 11, 2005 at 13:03

While we should not ignore the global ambitions of the faith of Abraham, or Jesus, nor the willingness of their followers to employ violence in their cause, the current strain of radical Islam is worrisome in its willingness to kill and terrorize Muslems as well as infidels, innocents as well as combatants. Ultimately, it turns religion on its head by strivimg to impose it by force rather than to inspire followers by its message.
