Earthquake and Islam

Reader comment on item: Bush Declares War on Radical Islam

Submitted by Hari Iyer (United States), Oct 16, 2005 at 03:16

To say there are contradictions and ironies in islam is an understatement.

During the earthquake in Pakistan, of course, there aren't that many trained dogs to locate survivors, because in the islamic scheme of things, dogs along with pigs are 'unclean'; But dogs arriving from western countries are fine to come and locate survivors. On the one hand, islamic preachers keep saying that all things are coming from allah and in the same breath say dogs and pigs are not good.

By the way, have you seen a islamic guy donate his/her organ like people do in western countries. Naaah.....Now here we have a saudi guy bribing his way up to get a organ transplant over people waiting in line. Would he preach to other muslims to be organ donors?...Naaaah.

Women are not educated in many islamic countries (including saudi arabia); however, when a man in the family gets old and he cannot read the prescription, can he get his wife to read the prescription?...

Submitting....
