Boycott Islam

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism
in response to reader comment: BOYCOTT MUSLIM GOODS??

Submitted by Wiley Freeman (United States), Sep 19, 2006 at 15:39

A boycott is a form of protest first developed in Ireland. It means to abstain or avoid dealing with a person or a group in any way so that the person or group cannot function. There are many Moslems doing business in the United States. We are not required to do business with them.

The silence of the Moslems in the US about Islamic terrorism has been deafening, yet we continue to support them with our patronage. THIS MUST STOP NOW. The recent attacks on the Pope has finally put me over the edge on this issue. I am now willing to start my boycott of Islam and Moslems. For example, this week my teenage daughter and I went to buy her first car. We stopped at a car lot and looked at a Honda. After a while a salesman came up who was obviously Iranian by the name of Mo. I told him we would not buy a car from a Moslem and left. I felt somewhat bad that I had been "intolerant" but I stood by my decision to boycott Islam and Moslems until they stop threatening our safety and lives. There is no law that says we cannot discriminate against Moslems when we buy things. We don't have to work for them or provide them with services. In Ireland, the people even persuaded the postman not to deliver the mail. How great is that!
