Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon

Submitted by Mu'een Ud Deen (United Kingdom), Jul 19, 2006 at 05:54

Asalaamu Alaykum to all the mumineen,

First and foremost, I am a servant of Allah, The Blessed, Most Merciful, Beneficent.

What are all you people on about? Israel is in the wrong. I would like to point out, that I am deeply disgusted with Israel - not its people. After so many centuries of retribution and the holocaust - I would have thought that they knew what it meant to be the 'victim.' I thought Israel had some sense. People do not realise the social implications of war - many of you say 'lets have war' but lucky people like you are nowhere near it. Why should people like you have a say on Israel and the Palastinian people when you don't even live or have lived their - I have even though it was short.

People here in this forum, do not realise why their is hatred for Israel on behalf of many Muslims; Palastinian people are treated like dogs, even though they outweigh the jewish population considerably. The major reason for the hatred is al-Aqsa. Many people on this forum, do not realise the condition of the sacred mosque - Masjid Aqsa. It has stood in Jerusalem for centuries - Muslims are not allowed in to their mosque but 'Jews' are. On top of that, they treat it with disrespect, they don't even bother taking of their shoes whilst walking in which is practised by all Muslims and whats worst they are weakenning the foundations - trying to topple it.

To Muslims it feels like the 'West' are trying to demolish our religious identities which we hold dearly. The reason why their a distinct difference; Muslims emphasize more on faith and religion than any other race (this is a fact), the 'West' is failing in terms of religion, Christianity is starting to whither - why? Many people have faith in nothing but themselves. For example, Britian - I have been to my Jumah prayers (Friday prayers) and so many Muslims pray at their mosque, unlike the christian community which seems non-existent. Us Muslims pray 5 times a day, fast for 30 days, give Zakaat and Sadaqah, read the Qur'an regularly as well as being a multi-racial religion - who are still unified. The difference between Islam and Christianity is massive, Islam is meant for all. Whilst the bible says that the Bible is meant for the sons of Israel - have good look in your in the bible - you'll see.

People feel threatenned by Muslims because of Islam and its influence. So many people are converting to Islam 'black slaves' and mostly 'white Europeans.' So many people talk about Islam preaching to black slaves in jail - but what you don't realise is that most of the sahabah (companions of the prophet) were themselves black!

You look at the position of Israel - in the middle of nowhere. It is surrounded by Arab states - doesn't that tell you something. As for chemical weapons - look George Bush or shall I say Georgie - you wanted to protect the world from terrorism and Iran's nuclear missiles - look further East - North Korea are already firing nuclear weapons - why don't you go after them? And why did you censor 25 pages of the dossier belonging to the public enquiry of september 11th. LAST BUT NOT LEAST TONY - HOW CAN A PUBLIC ENQUIRY INTO 7/7 BE SO EXPENSIVE? WHAT AN EXCUSE.

Why did Bush fail to mention that America sold 'chemical weapons' or 'weapons of mass destruction' to Iraq before the 'cold war.' Why attack the mujahideen after givening them billions of dollars?
