IGNORANCE causing the downfall of the world

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Solomon (Australia), Nov 10, 2002 at 09:11

I believe the muslim world for nearly a century knew about the rise of fundamental Iislam and had many chances to crush its rise of power but decided to IGNORE it and that was a dangerous thing to do as most of us have found out. ..If they continue to IGNORE them it would only bring the downfall of peaceful Islam and it will be seen or received as a heavy burden for Moslems around the world.

The western world has also itself to blame for the fact it IGNORED the way it was treating the Middle Eastern (predominatly Moslem)nations in the late 19th to early 20th centuries. The Americans are largely to blame for they know they did wrong by deciding to IGNORE the Middle East and continue to destroy the pride of other nations.
