Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism

Submitted by C.J. (United States), Dec 14, 2006 at 03:34

This page has a beautiful message, interesting, and very delightful! I wish this message could be heard or read by all of us "westerners". I am fond of Islamic traditions, although, I am Christian. I have personally known some Islamic people in my life, and I am so thankful I have. I am also thankful for finding your site. This is the most beautiful writing I have read in a very long time!

I am in college, in my Ethics class we are currently discussing Arab, and Muslim discrimination isuues. I plan on giving my class a copy to this link, and hope they all read it too. We are also talking about how to resolve the issue. Studies suggest the best way to do that is for peope to be more exposed, and integrate, with personal contact (firends etc.) on a regular basis.

I like the idea of looking past the trouble, and thinking of what should be, its so beautiful. I think Islam is very beautiful, I have learned better thinking, and about whats really real, and knowing my heart from Islam. I think the problem here is some people cant handle the truth about whats real in thier lives, and they just drownd in it all. Another issue is religion, of course. I would like more people to really know about Islamic Prinicples, and for them to realize we all have the same GOD, and we all beleive there is Only one GOD. There are some who seem stuck on beleifs about Jesus, why cant people accept the differences, and get over that?

The "Western World" could learn many Islamic principles, and apply them to their life. I beleive they would find them very beneficial for their faith. I have found passages in the Bible relating to some Islamic Principles. "Greeting and departing eachother with a Holy kiss" and saying Grace and peace be with you from our Father God. (Very similar to Islamic traditions. ) I found another passage in the Bible stating women should cover thier head in prayer. We should be in constant prayer, I find when I cover my head, I feel so safe, and protected. I have learned other things from my fiends, but I found it very interesting those were in the Bible. When we make movies of times of the profits, the women always have their head covered, and I often wondered why we dont do that anymore.

I really enjoy your site, Grace and peace be with you from our Father GOD!
