in response to reader comment: Islam - a resounding success story, why and how

Submitted by yfi (Australia), Oct 2, 2006 at 03:01

thank you so much for taking the time to write such an exhaustive essay. Ever since I was a child in Germany, taking the train to school and being consistently and for years, pestered by (in most cases obviously married) middle aged muslim men of turkish origin, I have been trying to learn about and understand what I can about Islam.

Much of what you wrote about i already knew, but there were many worthwhile cross-references which helped my understanding to deepen. Most of all, I continue to be amazed by the seeming lack of resistance to all of this repression by muslim women. What kind of 're-education' must a women have undergone for her to willingly send her sons into death via suicide bombing or fighting for some islamist terrorist army! Anyone who has given birth to a much prayed for child and has nursed him and cared for him, has seen him smile up at her from the breast and say ""I love you mummy" a little later, knows that giving this son away to be killed is so monstorus that no love for any kind of god can make a mother willing to do that....only naked primeval fear might possibly cause this behaviour: fear for her other children (not necessarily herself). Hello!! Is there a muslim woman out there whose conscience is not seared with hot irons and who can still feel how totally degradingly unjust this stuff is? I would love to talk with you. If you're allowed to talk to me that is ....

Submitting....
