Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: What Islam is and what Islam is obviously not

It seems to me that Muslim males are so denied any sexual outlet that it causes destructive behavior. There have been articles written in regards to the sexual suppression of Islamic males and how it has led to terrorist acts. Afterall, they are promised a few dozen virgins if that die for their beliefs. (I accent the virgin part because any man who actively seeks a virgin has serious insecurity issues.) It is this insecurity in their masculinity that has probably led to the veils, burkas, and controlling of women. Studies of abusive and domineering men have almost always pointed towards this.

Furthermore, all muslims in general seem to unable to accept any view other than their own (or what they believe was handed down by their false deity allah, (who IS NOT THE SAME GOD OF THE JEWS AND CHRISTIANS) and are quite hypocritical it the application of their views. For instance the nutcases in the middle east wish to reject western culture, yet I have seen many automobiles, airplanes, computers, printing presses, televisions, telephones,microwave ovens, ball-point pens, antibiotics, elevators, sewing machines, radios, air-conditioning units and especially firearms, being used by the very same people who despise western culture.

The fact is that ALL of the aforementioned are western inventions. (Before any of you write me to state that gunpowder came from China, let us clarify that the arquebus was invented in Europe, which led to modern day firearms) Therefore, if the Muslims of the middle east and the world over want to really reject western culture then they must reject all western inventions. To do otherwise proves hypocrisy of the worst form. The western culture and what it has invented cannot be seperated. Without Western ideals and society these inventions would not have been. If you you don't believe that, then take a look at the middle eastern culture where nothing has been invented since the 8th century. So if the muslims hate western culture and values then they should return to the 8th century standard of living, they seem to have the mindset, all they need to do is lose those horrible western devices.

By the way, leave Israel alone. It is their homeland. Judaism predates Islam by about 3,000 years. They have the historical claim on that little piece of land.
