Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Submitted by rodney allsworth (Australia), Dec 5, 2006 at 19:03

mr pipes, the comment that counterterrorism can only be accomplished by non muslims (because muslim communities being generally incapable and /or unwilling to purge [deal with ] their own). actually highlights the flaw in the following statment that islam can be modernised let alone give equal rights to women as the west understands this to be

[by the way what happened to the wests femminists]. that non muslims can help by supporting MODERATE muslims, the general muslim society is subject to the teachings of their muftis and leaders of the islamic culture ISLAM remember means [submission] to [ALLAH] there is nothing else to which they may be sbmitted to EXCEPT when done in accordance to the teachings of the quran

in the day that islamic countries allow christian missions the same privigles that they demand and expect under our democratic govts ,then maybe i would give a second thought to working with islamic movements.
