Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Jamil Al-isis (Jordan), Feb 8, 2006 at 14:32

The moment i finished reading the article (Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism) by Daniel Pipes, i understood that there is something wrong out there, i mean in the west, or to be more specific in the western minds.

Many words crossed my mind and i wanted to post it here, but then i read the article (Double Standards) by Mohamed Al-Lawati, i was a little bit relieved because he said most of what i wanted to say, but then, i was shocked when i read what was posted by Islamic Imperialism under the title (The Islam Comic Book), what the heck happened to you people? we are not like he described, not at all, not even close to was said there, we are normal people just like you, living our lives trying to make it peacefull and secured life, we believe in god just as u do, we believe in Jesus christ, we also believe in Moses, we respect all god's prophetsas same as we respect our prophet Mohammad.

maybe its true that our cartoonists did some cartoons before as mentioned by you, but did we ever reach to a level were we insult any of the other prophets like you did? did we insult any of the holy books or any other religious believs you have? Whats wrong with you? they are prophets, they are in a level were we are not allowed to insult or make fun of, we only owe them respect, but when the devil and his companions start to play with your minds, you'll act like you did for sure, you"l lose respect for holy believes, even yours, and days will show you that i was right, and if you cant wait, just check this site, www.southparkstudios.com, which is a official site for the comedy series Southpark, check the charachters, you'll find that Jesus is a character that lives in this town, southpark, try to download the episodes and see for yourself how they insult God himself by picturing him as a disgusting creature, see how many times they made fun of the jews through one of characters who is jew.

We had never done this, because our religion prevents us from doing this, we respect all people who believes in god and his prophets, and even if they don't, we respect them as long as they respect us.

We are all against terrorism, and all these terrorist events made by the name of Islam, Islam has nothing to do with it, we fight it, because our prophet Mohammad taught us to, its written in the holy Quran as an order from god to fight those who are killing people and destroying lives.

Our prophet, Mohammed once was sending an army to fight those who fought him, he did a speech in front of the soldiers, ordering them: "do not kill any woman, children, old people, men who don't fight you, and don't cut any tree."
TREE, A man who respect other god's creatures like trees can not approve terrorism and actions made by the name of islam. and we also don't.

And let me end my words by saying that what you did cant be forgotten or forgiven, and even if your governments apologized, there apology will never be accepted, because what you did is way beyond the limits of apology.
