The True Evils

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Ra (Malaysia), Nov 9, 2005 at 01:24

To understand the religion and the teachings of the Koran, one must accept the truth of it. It is like some Muslims who don't really see why Christians believe in the Crucifix, when it was really a tool of evil used by Romans even before Christ or should I say Isa a.s. Same goes why some Christians think we are praying towards the moon, the sun and violence is part of religion. And why does Christian believe in the trinity, why is there a son of God? Why do Muslims believe in a one and only god and believes in the Prophet Muhammad who is said to be evil, cruel and violent.

Most faith rejects blood, violence and discrimination of others. But all of these are basically human nature. If God did not want to have violence in his dominion, he should not have created Adam in the first place. The on going issues in the world are mostly because of politics. Countries now fighting for Oil, Wealth and Power. Islam is not a tool of evil nor it is evil, but yet there are evil muslims who succumb to the devil's ways. Why would a religion preach to do good and just be called evil? I guess it's probably because of the media. I can even see how most of the United Nations agreed attacking Iraq. Unfortunately for them they did not find any WMDs, all part of the media. How do we even know if Osama Bin Laden is even a partner or in league with Bush? I'm just theorizing, the US has the best GPS satelites around the world yet they cannot locate some old fart hiding in a cave for the past 4 years.

As for Prophet Muhammad, he had to take the sword to fight for his country. I haven't heard a word he joins in a fight and kills anyone yet, I wonder where people get their sources (made up i guess). He married more than 4 wives to establish a platonic relationship with them, he pity those wives who lost their husbands in the wars. Whenever there was a prison of war, he gave them a choice either convert to islam or if they teach around 10 arab children how to read they are to be set free ( i guess none of you would know that since you're just ignorant and want to know a bloody history). But there is nothing about forcing someone to submit into Islam or putting them to the sword.

I guess it's the fact that Christians and Jews should always be high hopes and dreams of this world.
