"Decent" muslims: to Gabriel Grosso

Reader comment on item: The Scandal of U.S.-Saudi Relations

Submitted by Willie (South Africa), Nov 5, 2005 at 14:26

This is in response to Gabriel Grosso

I, like him, find many decent Muslims. Fortunately, these decent Muslims, like the majority of other muslims do not know arabic and they just recite koran without knowing the meaning of it. If they really know the meaning of each and every verse, then they would be beating their disobdient wives, which is allowed. As th Bengali writer Taslima Nasreen said, Islam is flawed. Since majority of the muslims are illiterate do know know the arabic, they remain decent. Of course, they can remain decnt even after having fully understood the Koran. In that case they are not living by Koran and ceased to be Muslims. But one should not be happy about this, espcially the non-muslim.

One day or other, if Islam becomes the majority of a country, the mullas will take over and proclaim Islamic law. The innocent koran-illiterate mulsims will support that also thinking that everything in koran is perfect, only to find that they have imposed death penalty or life imprisonment on themselves. Iran is a good example. Now, even if the people want to rvert this, the ayatollas on't allow. The enlightened muslim women are against sharia law to be incorporated in the iraqi constitution. We all must support them. Once it is there, then no one can repeal it. Despite Saddam, Iraqi women and other minpority religions enjoyed freedom. Now there is no guarantee. From Lahore to Casablanca there is a group waiting to take a vast portion of humanity to th middle ages while the rest of the world is forging ahead. Let us all be united to stem this at the earliest.
