Reader comment on item: The Middle East and Islam Dominate U.S. Public Life

Submitted by Stefan Ullrich (Germany), Feb 22, 2007 at 17:55

I do appreciate Your London lessons amongst these multi-kulti left-wingers obviously being inspired by our gone red-green disaster-administration in Germany! (Additionally You should have reminded them of the biggest mosque-project ever to come in this world and being realized just in the heart of THEIR city in the year 2012 - a complex building for more than 70.000 Muslim visitors!)

The only point I would NOT agree with You is Your rather sharp drawing of a difference between "radical Islam" and the "religion of Islam". As long as nearly everything al Quaida is doing and commanding can be justified with "the prohete's" doing and commanding out of the Quran there is definitely NO significant difference but just following and practicising Muhammad's words - or not doing so...

We should be so honest to state that most of our Muslim citizens still behave civilised, because they DO NOT follow their scripture, but their human hearts (often without knowing about this, cause they never read or at least understood the Quran's verses)!

With that the REAL difference to draw would be more the one between an "AGGRESSIVE/COLLECTIVE MOHAMMEDANIAN QURAN-ISLAM" (including violent Jihadism as well as non-violent political Jihadism) on the one handside and an "CIVILIZED/PRIVATISED FICTIOUS HEART-ISLAM" (still lived out by most muslims) on the other handside.
