Islamophobia Cometh

Reader comment on item: Debate in London: Radical Islam vs. Civilization

Submitted by moderate Muslim (United States), Mar 18, 2007 at 22:27

... Violence has causes.

The causes are NOT religious

All around the world, where you see violence done by Muslims, its is caused by occupation or anger.

It is not religiously motivated

People may have their parents killed by a special forces squad or their brother abducted, and they will commit violence and justify it on religion. Religion is the excuse. THe cause is the violence.

I do not condone violence commited by Muslims

I merely think we need to look at the root cause.

Sure, killing terrorists stops terrorism in the short term, but it doesnt do anything but strenthen it in the long term. It is a viable options, but we need to have better options. We need to stop Hezbollah teror while stopping Israeli incursions. We need to condemn murder in Iraq, while stopping the continuing destabilization caused by our forces.

Their needs to be a better plan then "kill dem A-rabs"

Cuz its not working


Thank you, and may Allah bless Islam and America\

Now thats a phrase you dont hear much in Iraq, why, because we are killing them.
