Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Jamil Al-isis (Jordan), Feb 10, 2006 at 10:06

Many topics were opened lately with many questions to be answered by me. I'll try not to ignore any of them and if I did it would be by mistake.

First let me answer the question posted by Lisa,
She asked: Do you accept that your sister, daughter or a female of your family member marry a Christian man and convert to Christianity? Please be honest

Lisa, the answer is no, I wont accept it, but I won't also accept it if a male member wanted to marry a Christian woman, and that's because of the huge differences between both mentalities. but the Islamic point of view is that this marriage reflects on their children, and as the children follow their father in every thing like name and religion, so it wont be accepted for a female member to marry a non Muslim man, but it is accepted on the opposite. But if wanted to know what if she did it anyway, you have to know that she won't be punished by killing or torturing, she's on her own.

Mr. John Bastile, I don't know what you were aiming by your post, but your post had many mistakes, the stories you mentioned are true, but they didn't meant what you were explaining, we can talk about it later.

Back to the main subject, Gabriel Grosso said that Denmark and Norway are not religious societies, I agree with that, but I say also that the west in general are way far from religion, that's why they have no respect for religious beliefs, ours, theirs and others like Jews.

You can make jokes about Arabs and Muslims, but not prophets, holy books and above all, God, which remind me of a post that I forgot who wrote it, he claimed that we Muslims worship Mohammed and we believe that he is our god, where did you get this idea from? The holy Quean say: "Mohammed is not more than a messenger from God, following the other messengers who were sent by God"

He is a normal human being who lived an era doing his mission, we only worship God, and only God, the same God that Christians and Jews worship.

Yuval Brandstetter and Dr RJP asked how many Jews lives in Jordan, I don't know how, never counted them, but I don't think that they want to live here, but you both should know that before the Israeli-Palestinian conflict ( I can't not mention it since it was opened) before 1948, Jews, Christians and Muslims lived together in Palestine, Syria, Egypt, morocco, and other Arab countries, you cant deny this, but the conflict you are ignoring started all the hate among the generations who lived those events and their grandchildren.
My father himself, who was born in Jerusalem in the 40's was named after a Jew who was a neighbor of his family, does this reflect the hate you are talking about?

I can't say that we have a long hate history since the days of Mohammad, but it also had it's reasons, which was that Jews didn't accept a new prophet, which happened at the time of Jesus, and other prophets who were sent to them.

I know that I'm talking far from the main topic, but you were asking, what do you "Yuval brandstetter" expect the reaction from the Palestinians to be towards the army who killed them and took their land? Those were the real terrorists, the Zionists, not Jews, but they took that religion as a cover, just as recent terrorists do in the name of Islam, but unfortunately, Jews followed them blessing their acts, I don't think that we are doing the same now.

Back to you Dr RJP, converting from Islam to any other belief is a crime punished by death because they are betraying God, but we don't kill who are non Muslims at all, what about the crusaders who had a long bloody history in the middle east? I don't think that they were fighting terrorism, they were the terrorists.

You asked how many Muslims openly embrace Jews as their friends. Jews and Christians believe one should "Love thy neighbor."
How many Muslims not only believe it, but put it into practice?

All Muslims believe it, but the true Muslims, who still follow the rules of God and Mohammed.
The point is that I'm here defending for Islam and Muslims who still follow it, and believe me they are the majority, I don't defend those acts I and you saw on TV.

There is a lot more that I want to say, but I think that I said too much for now, but I want to end it with Mr. IS, if you are ready to fight again, I hope that we both meet in the battle field. You don't know how ready I am to defend Islam and Mohammed.

Thanks for you all
