Reader comment on item: "I Had a Good Time at Guantánamo, Says Inmate"

Dear Daniel, I'm sorry but I have to disagree with the way you are portraying Guantanamo as a ‘holiday camp'. This is ridiculous and is also not typical of "the real truth" usually found in your web site. I agree with you on - Yes most Muslim's are nice, decent people. Yes there are fanatics wherever you turn in every culture. But to dismiss the evils of Islam's teachings and blaming it on those few ‘fanatics' who follow its teachings implicitly, is like looking at the teeth of a lion and not realising that; it is the ‘nature of the beast' (i.e. Islam) that makes it so terrifying (& not the weapons themselves).

I am English (and a newly converted Christian) and I have to say Guantanamo is very evil and a black blot on good name of (Christian) America. The sooner this is realised and a proper Christian attitude of love is adopted by yourselves & the (presidential) administration. Then I am afraid that most Muslim's will also see the West as the Lion portrayed above.

Yours faithfully Brad
