BASTA! religion is a serious matter we're talking about

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by An angry, and a frustrated Muslim (United States), Feb 22, 2003 at 04:54

Lets make it straight, i have been doing research on something about Islam, and from somewhere I end up into these web-sites where I see these comments by people.. may i say "ignoraNT" people, who say such racist stuff about Islam that it hurts being a Muslim. We have a heart too, and we have feels in it, in case you don't know!!!!
lets just put it this way... every Muslim is not bad and every non-Muslim is not good.
One can not.. on any grounds of 'intellect', just go on and abuse a religion without even having the slightest hint of what that really is.
You call Islam a religion that promoted terrorism! well, lets see, The Bible and The Tohra.. Don't they allow war for religious purpose??!!! Yes they do. But hey! The credit goes to the Quran!
well, if there are some ignorant Muslims who take Jihad to such an awful extreme, that it is not Jihad anymore... it has more of terrorism in it ( which is in reality strictly forbidden in Islam) then guess what? The entire Muslim civilization is held responsible for that one act in which not even Christians but also Muslims were killed (the Sept. 11th attack). However, for some reason we do not "CONSIDER" the number of Muslims who lost their lives, because we have this myth in our heads that they were involved too! WOW! We are so smart!
Therefore, the US can go to war because they are not Muslims. Does that sound right?
The point of this was to tell you all that Jihad is NOT IN ANY WAY the same as terrorism. Jihad has some rules, but terrorism does not. According to jihad, a Muslims can not initiate a war, s/he can not kill women, children and old people, the opponent is supposed to be given a warning before the attack etc., etc.
God bless you all!
