Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by Aasia (South Africa), Nov 22, 2005 at 09:28

Just read through most of the posts here, not all mind you ...

As far as a muslim womans rights goes she is the freest woman on earth. Islam has been preaching women's lib far longer than any other government or state that i know of. I will not quote Haddith but go purely on sunnah. Islam see's women and men equally ( i can here you snigger ) Most of you are confusing culture with Islam most country deprive women of their rights but not Islam. Women are allowed to earn their own money, chose their life partners. As far as honour killings are concerned don't be absurd, those are cultural and not religion based.

To some women here , i know you cannot imagine a life of submission to GOD because thats what it is, Islam is a way of life, peaceful at that but terrorists are rife i am sorry to say but look at their motivation. #1 who trained Osama bin laden???? the US what has the west done to most of the countries in the middle east, attacked taken over etc etc I would be upset too if another country jkept on pushing their noses into things which don't concern them. For istance look at palestine is was islamicaaly ruled till the 1940's and the jews with the help ofd the US took over. Read the bible or Qu'raan the jews were doomed to be a wandering nation. As far as atheism is concerned, unfortunately yes, we do believe you are going to hell, for the doors of heaven will only be available to the people of the book (Torah; Qu'raan and the bible. ) besides if you don't believe in God/Heaven and hell why worry?

Also don't take quotes out of context about if a muslim woman displeases her husband yadah yadah yadah because it works both ways a husband has his duties too! Islam promotes peace is what i want to re-iterate. Because the Crusaders too were biblical terrorists.

I have learnt if some one hates you or your people, find out why! There must be a reason Islam is the fastest growing religion. Think on that.

FYI. Jihad can only be declared if someone threatens your life not for any other reason, terrorists are people that are pissed off nothing else. Look at the IRA, those are relgious killings too.
