Unbelievable-- to commenters

Reader comment on item: [Freedom House report on] Saudi Venom in U.S. Mosques

This is so very interesting....

People need to get a life and look into their own hearts before they can start hating the actions of others. Sounds like an obvious thing, no? Apparently not. Yes, it is true that Saudis treat women worse than animals, and yes, it is true that if one does not believe in Allah and Muhammad, then according to the Quraan, they are considered disbelievers and will only go to hell.

However it is also true that if one does not believe in the Trinity, accoring to the Bible, they will go to hell. EVERY religion claims it is the right one. Is this so hard to understand?

Yes, it is true that jihad is mandatory upon every muslims.... but how many of YOU know what jihad means? (I am not talking about the definition that media has spoon fed the public) Self-defence sounds like a reasonable thing to Americans, right? It holds high value in the Western justice system. Any lunatic can claim to have murdered anyone and get away with reasonable evidence of self defence.

So, I ask: why is it that when a group or nation (i.e. Muslims, Nonmuslims, Blacks, etc.) tries to defend itself from the Americans or christians, it becomes such an abominable act in the eyes of Americans that it MUST be either 'terrorism" or some other pathetic term.

How many people today understand that Muslims are, in reality, the biggest victims of 9/11?? More than the number of american soldiers, it is the number of muslims that have died in a post 9/11 world. Makes you guys happy? I bet. Less terrorists, you think.

There is no excuse for suicide bombers to bomb a public building. Islamically or Unislamically. BUT there is no excuse for people such as yourselves (so called education people) to sit on your computers and HATE a group of people that you have very little knowledge about (this very little knowledge coming from the media).

I request all of you, for the sake of humanity, muslims/non-muslims/anti-muslims/atheist to please increase your levels of tolerance. It is true that most muslims display little or no tolerance but that is no excuse for us, civilised people, to consider EVERY muslim "violent" that needs to be "kicked out of America" this kind of talk is extremely disgusted, ignorant and threatens the existence of our very society.

Next time, when we have something "smart" to say about Islam/muslims... lets all try to please keep it consistent with the same values we so cherish! (Being educated, intellectuall and civilised human beings!)

Submitting....
