Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]

Greeting to all Commentators, and a word or two to our friends from "the religion of peaces"

Muslims, it comes down to this, if you want to join the modern world, you have to be able to discern right from wrong, even if it is in your own camp, even if it hurts. And our views of right and wrong are not, and will never be, based on the Koran or Sharia law - let's just get that clear. If you want to be taken seriously, you should apologies now for your "Brothers" who have killed Christians in Nigeria (as Richard pointed out), chopping the heads off of 13 year old Christian schoolgirls in Indonesia, high jacking elementary schools in Beslin (Russia) and raping the 13 to 15 year old girl, as well as the abuse towards every country that welcomed you in, in the last thirty years. Or just continue to TRY to pull the wool over our eyes. Don't take our generosity to be weakness, I would suggest.

Making excuses, you should learn, is something that we detest! We detest excuses for many reasons, including that it shows a real lack of character - a friend one minute, a foe the next, for example. And character is something that you have to earn through hard work, not something that the UN can give you on a silver platter, or that you can demand. You just have to stand up and be counted. Unless you can apologize to all non-Muslims for the rotten apples/deeds in your basket then you aren't here to find a solution, you are only hear to try to mould, manipulate and mandate the commentators that do still believe that Islam is the "religion of peace." Actually, I believe that anything is possible, but even my imagination has reached its limits on this one.

That said, if you are able to take your medicine and apologize for something that you know is not write, you may plant a seed that flourishes to one day cover the whole of the Middle East with green pastures of peace. May God help you to choose wisely.

Good luck.
