Reader comment on item: NATO Fights the Jihadis
in response to reader comment: "mohammedian" drivel

I never said that people who follow Mohammed "Cannot be Muslims". the concept is that the philosophy advanced by Mohammed may be accepted by other than those who have internalized Mohammedism and elevated his preaching to the level of a religious experience. Obviously english is a second language for you, and I mean no disrespect, at least you have attemped to understand a concept which you find difficult to grasp. There is no hate implied, in a non Mohammedian culture various points of view are encouraged.

Regarding reference to Jesus of Nazereth, in fact it is the philosophy of Jesus which non christians may embrace. The American Federal holiday of "Christmas" is to celebrate the philosophy of Jesus of Nazereth, not the religious "Christ" which refers to the transformation into a diety. One need not accept the later to embrace the former.

I am pleased that you reject violence, and sincerly hope that you continue to do so. I am at a loss to explain your assumption of racism. As an American, I believe racism violates the basic values my countrymen and I have fought for so that we can live up to the creed of all men (and women) are created equal, and endowed by their creator certain inalienable rights, among which are life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness,this applies to you too Raheel
