Yeah, Sure

Reader comment on item: Al-Qaeda Invites Me to Join Its Ranks

Submitted by John R (United States), Sep 3, 2006 at 19:45

This just goes to show you the wacky dynamics behind Muslim enthusiasts. See I use the word now Muslim enthusiast. Maybe that is even better than Islamist, huh? Anyway, the fact that you got invited to join the light of Allah is a testament to the absurdity of many Muslim enthusiasts frame of mind. What do they think of us? Fools? That there is even a chance, apparantly he believes, that of all people, not ordinary ones, but prominent outspoken and dedicated critics of Islam, to convert to Islam, only cast more pall of flimsy logic, flimsy substance, and flimsy credibility hanging over Muslim enthusiasts. Yeah sure we're unintelligent goody-two-shoes so we'll consider, we'll convert. Thanks!

I will do my part to defeat radical, totalitarian Islam and to usher in the emergence of a modern, moderate, and good-neighborly Islam in its place.And when may I ask do you believe this will happen? When will the defining moment be? Because say I follow the logic of Islam eventually turning to such you say like how other religions have, it took hundred of years for other religions to modernize, become moderate, and good-neighborly. I do not even think that case can be compared to Nazi Germany. How long did that last? 4 years? With religion, with God as the backdrop, it's different.
