THERE IS A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!

Reader comment on item: [The Need to Name and] Know Thy Terrorists

Submitted by Ahmad (Canada), Nov 22, 2002 at 09:49

From a commenter: "I still don't understand why you, President Bush and whoever else out there makes a distinction between Islam and Militant Islam... If the Islamic religion condones the slaughter of any person who doesn't want to convert to Islam, then why the distinction?"

-------------

There is a big difference between so-called "Militant" Islam and Islam;

There's one; the Quran did not teach Muslims how blow up human beings up; the Quran taught us to defend ourselves from the aggressors

Furthermore, the slaughter of "a person who does not convert to Islam" is pathetically baseless!!!!

For thousands of years, Muslims and Christians were living together in the Middle East; Churches in the Middle East are still active and prospering. And Christians are still practising their faiths under Islamic governments.

It is a very unfortunate thing that a handful of Islamic Zealots, who gave you this Idea, lead you to that disgraceful conclusion that 1 billion and 300 Million Muslims are the same!!!!
