Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Submitted by Paul Martin (United States), Mar 20, 2003 at 19:27

We've heard all about the Islamist ideal you've presented here before. Two points for you to consider:

1. Your assertion is disingenuous; you won't stop at trying to dominate your own lands because your interpretation of Islam compels you to dominate the whole world or die trying. America's response to Sept. 11 should serve notice that we are also willing to make great sacrifices to defend ourselves and our culture from your kind, but we also have a deep respect for life. Here's something to ponder: dead men are of no use in a fight. Look up the famous words of General George S. Patton about dieing for your country to give you more insight into the American way of thinking about this.

2. Try as you might, you will not be able to isolate yourselves from the rest of the world. Your people won't be able to resist the temptations of the West's technology, affluence, and freedom. Human nature cannot be denied, and it's something that is stronger than Islam or any other ideology. You will have to reconcile your religion to the facts of existence or you will wither away and perish due to your own obstinacy. It's your choice.
