in response to reader comment: mo, slow day at the madrassa?

Dear Susan,

Your hostility against Islam and Muslims is alarming; please show some civility. Perhaps if you have anything productive to say other than senseless comments and remarks… it would be helpful.

"Iran is not considered by the majority of Sunni Muslims to represent them, so your argument there is void."

That comment was made by me in response to someone else, so clearly someone does care.

"what about the islamic world domination? what about the fact that everywhere muslims are a majority they kick out, murder, harass and expel everybody that's not muslim? (malaysia, indonesia, mindanao, pattani kosovo,etc)"

What Islamic world domination? ... Muslims everywhere merely want what is rightly theirs, without foreign interference. Afghanistan has been plagued by war and destruction for over a century, their infrastructures continuously destroyed and rebuilt, with the British during the 1880's, the Russian during the 1980s, and now the West in general under NATO, have systematically took advantage of an open area of a relatively weak nation, whilst having a strategic importance to all invaders and occupiers.

The countries that you have mentioned (Indonesia, Malaysia) co-exist fine within their multicultural society. We may see some tension here and there by fringe groups and elements, but isn't that common? Look in your own country for the evidence; you have fringe groups like the neo Nazi and other white supremacist movement, even political parties such as the BNP (British national party) who favour one race over anther. While you fail to realise what is common amongst nations, you dismiss your own shameful inequities as nothing more than fringes, and smear, generalise and discriminate a whole nation with their fringes, please be objective and fair.

"So what are you doing muslim turks in northern cyprus that you ILLEGALLY occupied?"

Susan, you have referring to Turks, who have their own political agendas, the last time I checked, they were a secular state, far from having any Islamic influence in the political system. This can be further illustrated with the Hijab from public place which they so militarily impose. You illustrate the word "illegally" in cap locks for emphasis; if you have so against this occupation, then do you consider the Israelis occupation of Palestine "illegal," or do you consider the USA's occupation Illegal, just a thought?

We will continue to say "our land" because it is "our land", there may be a question mark on certain countries, but in general what is certain and sure will be considered by Muslims to be theirs. You call the Turks looters, then what would you call Israel or the USA?

"LOL, their seats in tents and caves?"

That was not funny actually.

"the real world allegedly didn't permit hiroshima too ...."

You have a point there. But look at the consequence, USA's reputation is forever in tatters. People will always refer to these events whenever giving evidence to the USA's double standards.

"here's the reply: yours is not a religion, it's a pagan death mafia cult that belongs to arabian tribes. You don't care about spirituality, you care about your ancient tribalism. The intelligence and mental capabilities of every muslim is so limited it's a miracle you can walk. Yuo know yuo are nothing outside your "tribe" because muslims are uncapable to create anything worthy, so if you lose islam you lose everything."

There goes your hatred again. Tribes are common amongst many Bedouin people, it exists in all places and is integrated in all religions, including that of Christianity. Muslims are worthy of creating many things, just a point for you to ponder. The computer that you are in front of is made up of 1s and 0s. It was the Muslims who first devised a method of coding and decoding with 1s and 0s several hundred years before the inventions of computers.

We are capable of many things; it's just that the current system under which many people find themselves in, undermines their potentials. As the west gives many people the opportunity to express themselves and be whatever they what themselves to be, the same cannot be said for other people who live in countries who do not have the resources and infrastructures in place for this to happen.

"we don't know what to do of your mafia-style threats. That just sums up the patheticness of islam."

You perceive it to be a threat; it was not, but a response to the person who this post is originally intended for. I shall correct you; it is you who threat me (us) with nuclear arms, threatening me (us) of total annihilation. It's sad that you would go that far, but I'm sure you don't really mean it… or do you?
