Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think
in response to reader comment: there is only one islam and one muslim

Submitted by Jack hawkins (United Kingdom), Oct 24, 2006 at 06:37

Technically your version of Islam should be called Muhammedan Islam - have you ever heard of Hanif?

You say there is "one Islam" - well you are ignoring the blatantly obvious schisms in Muhammedan Islam. Contrary to Christianity where there is a command to obey the civil authorities, there is no such obligation in Islam hence the problems of Islam in the West. There are so many examples that could be given of Muslims ignoring the law of the land.
