in response to reader comment: the boy in the bubble

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Oct 14, 2006 at 18:49

After all these misunderstandings between Muslims and the west, it is difficult to see Muslims in a positive light. I was glad to leave the UK, but for different reasons. In tolerant Britain, there is still a branch of the parliament where men wear wigs. But this is off-topic. Just because I said "I don't like Muslims", it does not mean that I am a Nazi. At this point in time, we have a lot of instances of violence coming from Muslims. People are getting a bit suspicious. You should read what some Muslims say about Christians and Jews. By comparison, my comment is very soft. I left Britain, but I came back to my country, where there are even more Muslims. Let us put it this way: if Christians beheaded people and called for Holy War, wouldn't you get a little bit suspicious? As for alienating the only Muslims who was willing to talk to me, I am sorry. I hope you still want to talk to other non-Muslims. God will not forgive me: maybe. But it is becoming more and more difficult to be open-minded in these days. God will understand why I said what I said.
