Reader comment on item: Away with Crusaders, Crucifixes, Crosses, and Christmas

Submitted by Muhammad Arief (Indonesia), Jul 7, 2006 at 02:58

Dear friends, I myself am a muslim and still as a muslim I am from Indonesia, and now working in France. I am very sorry about the attitude and behavior of muslim in the world especially in the western countries. For me they are very hypocrite for all life dimensions. They hate jews, christians and westerns but they still live and of course they are happier to live in the western society than the islam society.

You know why? because according to them the people of west are stupid and weak so that they are brave to demonstrate and protest the western policy. They forgot that they are living in west not in an islamic country. I myself don't agree with their attitude and behavior. For me is very simple, if you are muslim and you feel that you are not comfortable anymore and you don't agree with any kind of the jews or christians society in west so it will be better that you have to move away to arab countries or islam countries. Don't bother them as same as that the western society will not bother the arab or islam society.

In Indonesia many muslims will be glad if they will study or work in western countries rather than in arab or islam countries, that's the fact! Only a little bit number of people in Indonesia who have emotions associated with the arab or islam countries. Maybe they will be glad if Indonesia is to be a province of saudi arabia than to be a free country.

Though I am a muslim I don't respect the typical muslim who has attitude and behavior as hypocrite person in western society. I do respect the Jews and Christians in western society. Don't always take a look the past time, make it as a history, the crusades and other colonialization is a history, now we have to respect when we live or stay in another culture and society.
