in response to reader comment: RADICAL ISLAM VERSUS WESTERN CIVILIZATION

Submitted by Imdad Ali (Pakistan), Mar 14, 2007 at 01:28

First of all, I appreciate the views of Mr. E.J. Shafer on topic where in I narrated facts on the basis of historical truth. It has never been my intention to malign any body irrespective of believer of any faith. It is also truth that a little knowledge is dangerous thing.

World literature is replete with facts that Holy Prophet (Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him) inked pact with Jews to live with harmony and to defend against foreign aggression. Further more, when Muslims captured Jerusalem, they did not shed blood but on the contrary, welcome the Jews to live in Jerusalem. It is also historical facts which can not denied that when ever Muslims captured any state, they declared general amnesty but when Muslims were and are defeated, conquered committed genocide either it Spain, Bosnia, Palestine or Iraq.

The tenets of Islam gives exclusive permission to get marriage with Jews and Christians which is ample proof that Islam never intends to violent against Jews or any other religion. It is mere tool of propaganda to distain and malign Islam, which is swiftly, and fastly spreading across the Europe.

It is also fact that her allies and US made propaganda and staged drama to invade Iraq and concocted the theory of nuclear technology. Hundred of thousands peoples of Western countries made processions and condemned the aggressive policy of Western countries. Persecutions in Abu Graib prison are notorious events of history. Still US is adamant to divide Iraq on sectarian basis which change the course of history.
