Reader comment on item: More on Those Alcohol-shy Taxi Drivers
in response to reader comment: Time for everybody to chill out

Submitted by Moshe (Israel), Oct 18, 2006 at 04:58

It is indeed time to stop this pointless agitation about Muslim violence and intransigence. Why should we keep blowing out of proportions this so called "Muslim terrorism"? Are these Muslims really so dangerous? Are they really threatening anybody?

There is no doubt that as soon as we stop arguing with them, openly and officially recognize Islam as the only true (and of course most peaceful) religion, and institute Islamic Sharia law everywhere, there are good chances that they will reduce their terror activities, will stop blowing up themselves in crowded places, and perhaps will start behaving like human beings.

On the other hand, based on most recent Israeli experience, there are strong indications that contrary to our hopes, the more we will try to accommodate them, the bolder they will become, and it will just increase their "appetite". Who knows?
