Typical Islamic Rhetoric

Reader comment on item: Muslim Zionism

Submitted by Elizabeth (United States), Jun 8, 2006 at 16:52

If Muslims truly cared for Jerusalem they would do all they could to show the world they loved the city. Instead they constantly try and blow it up.

Islam for centuries has used "Islamic Holy Site" for their own gain. Iraq was the country in which the Caliphate was set up. More Islamic holy sites there than most Muslim countries. Yet the country itself has been reduced to poverty and rubble due to their own leadership way before the Persian Gulf war. All one has to do is look at Kashmir as a perfect example.

It is understandable since it is known that once a city or country has been under Islamic rule it can never go back. It has to stay. But if it doesn't then it is the job of every Muslim to fight unto death to make it what it once was.

The use of Muslim Zionism is very bothersome. Zionism by definition has nothing to do with Islam. Zionism represents itself as a political movement concerned principally with the establishment of a state in Israel to be controlled by and for Jews. Nothing to do with Islam. A better term would be " Once Muslim, Always Muslim and we will die for it."
