Islam is not evil...

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Anon. (Australia), Oct 18, 2005 at 22:42

I have to disagree with your views. Although my knowledge of Islam is limited, it is the political bodies such as Jammah Islamia (sp?) and others that are to blame, and the only connection with Islam that these political bodies have are the fact that most of their members are Muslim. The religion of Islam condemns terrorist acts and sees suicide as a sin. I suggest that before you place judgement upon a religion/group of people/whatever, you do some homework.

(By the way, I am not Muslim and I do not know any Muslims personally - I say only what I have learnt through a year's study of the religion and background knowledge I've picked up. Anything I don't know has not been stated here.)
