Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism
in response to reader comment: I will never submit to their demands

Hey Mark,

Thanks for the correction regarding Mohamed and Allah. In my haste to speak to this issue I didn't correctly make the distinction between the prophet Mohamed and their god Allah. With that said however, there was a little more than bending the knee to the schoolyard bully, but as you know this website chooses to edit the writers comments a little. The issue is a lot deeper than the surface but no one wants to discuss it because they might offend one another.

My real point is that the fringe groups within the Muslim faith cowardly hide behind the "cloak of religion" to espouse death to the west and Israel. Why is it that Israel gets dragged into this? Because the real objective of the Muslims is to annihilate Israel, wipe it from the face of the earth.

If the world caves in and supports the demands of the Muslims in any guise, there goes the neighborhood. The liberal politicians in the United States and around the world will use their bully pulpits in the name of "can't we all just get along agenda" and give the fanatical Muslims what they want without firing a shot so to speak. Sound familiar, (parastroyka), they learned the lessons from history only to well and we are too stupid to see it.

I don't pretend to know much about the prophet Mohamed or their god Allah, because I choose not to study my enemy as maybe I should. But I know enough that I don't want any part of the Muslim prophet, Mohamed or the god they serve Allah.
