Trouble In Londonistan

Reader comment on item: Trouble in Londonistan

Submitted by Seamus MacNemi (United States), Aug 31, 2006 at 17:11

There was a time in my life when I felt some sympathy for the Arab Peoples living in such poverty as many of them do in their native lands and I felt it a good thing for them to have the chance to come to the west and learn to raise themselves above the conditions of their birth. I read about the Golden Age of Islam when the Islamic world was a womb of intellectual ferment and new discovery in many fields of science and medicine and mathematics and I thought it possible to rekindle the greatness of those times.

I no longer believe that. In my own view, Islam has been corrupted and perverted beyond redemption by those who imagine themselves to be Mujahadin in the killing of innocent people. Such a mind set cannot be tolerated in any civilized community and all who embrace such notions should be excluded from participation in civil society.
