Reader comment on item: Why Hamas['s Electoral Victory] Leaves Me Neutral

Submitted by Vinodgupt (United States), Feb 3, 2006 at 10:39

There is much consternation about Hamas victory in PA. Fundamentally there is no difference between the two -- both are Islamic entities and no Islamic entity can go against the diktats of the Koran.

One must understand the basic guiding principles of Islam. The kafir world when it says "Islam is a great religion that has been highjacked by a few radicals" don't understand what damage they are causing to themselves. IF they are using this ploy with the idea of dividing the Muslims -- they are seriously mistaken. Actually it only divides and misinforms the kafir community. Most kafirs get information from the media and when they learn from the media leaders and politicians calling Islam peaceful and tolerant, they believe it. Such pronouncements don't really divide the Muslims -- they know what Isam is all about.

Instead of giving platitudes to Muslims and Islam, both should be confronted ideologically with the statements in the Koran and a serious debate started how do they propse to live with non-Muslims with such hatred being their fundamental beliefs?

Every day that goes unopposed gives more power to the forces of hatred ...
