Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by REXUS AMATICUS (Australia), Oct 31, 2005 at 07:16

Just before writing this letter I noticed the "Note" about how I must watch what I write including my "tone" and any "hostile" comments will be edited out.

Just one perfect example of what Islam expects and capitlizes on from Western culture.

So let's see now, it's ok to allow to show an Islamic shot video tape of a young soldier's beheading on the net, and it's ok for them to publicize their hatred towards the west, but we can't express our anger as we feel. Oh WE have to watch what WE say and how WE say it..

Well I've been reading posts from this site for the last 3 hours and I only have a few things to say about all this.

To all that call yourselves "good" Muslims, it is time you redeem yourselves by showing your revolt against all your murderous brothers by publicly condemning them and their hostile actions against innocent lives. Why do you all sit in silence? When was the last time you marched down a street bearing anti-terrorism banners? And how can you expect the rest of the world to believe your "innocence?" I for one do not, and I have good reason....
