American in the Middle East

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Amin

As an expat living in the Middle East and a non Muslim, let me tell you firsthand that there is no love found in Muslims to non Muslims.

The religon is based on fear. Fear your "god" and fear anything that could be un-islamic. When I asked my neighbor why he does not use a child seat for his infant son, he replied that if there was an accident it was "allah's will".

The goverment has blocked MSN and Yahoo chat because it is Un Islamic. As an American I cannot put up Christmas lights or form a church. I speak Arabic and keep this to myself when in the presence of locals. You would be amazed at what you will heare when others think you can't understand. "You will drown in a river of blood with your children" is my favorite as of now. This from a "peace loving Muslim".

Imagine how quickly I would be in court if I said that in the States. The local goverment has routinely taken picutures of my car and house. Fear? So don't force feed us the open mind story and the religion of peace... Show me one Muslim country that is not attacking a Christian neighbor? Its the end goal of Islam...world domination. Maybe the war on terror is "Allah's will"
