Islam, Terrorism, and the Koran

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Submitted by John R (United States), Dec 16, 2006 at 10:17

Whenever there is something, some book, some writ, some movement, some organization that calls for killing of or inflicting of malevolent harm to innocent people unprovoked, is evil. In our culture, that is what we call such thing. So why should we give exception to the Koran? Because it is the bible of Islam? We all know what the Koran says. Let's not discriminate. The Koran is evil too.

But just because the Koran is evil does not necessarily mean a person whose religion is based on the Koran is evil. Like Christianity there are those who are not religious, those who do not go to church or mosque, those who refuse to interpret the spouting of the bible correctly, those who turn a blind eye on the bible's odious, evil phrases. Not every person fall under the Koran's spell. For those who do, they are evil.

Islam therefore is evil because Islam is based on the Koran. It is the true Islam. True Islam is evil. Terrorism flows from Islam because those who commit terrorism are only practicing their religion well. They are the excellent, righteous Islamists, primo followers, straight A students of Islam as opposed to those Muslims who fail their religion, those who flub the dub.

It is not those Muslims who follow true Islam are the good ones. Those who do not are the ones that are good.
