Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by Namir (Canada), Apr 28, 2003 at 19:43

... I would like to point out that ...

1)like Chritianity there are many sects within islam

2)In Arabic ,the original language of the Quran, words somtimes have multiple meanings (i.e islam , can be interpreted as peace or submission or the actual faith and muslim, which can mean any one who submits to god ,Christians, Jews, or a follower of Islam) therfore translations may come out with altered meaning

3)Often minority fundamentalists gain power over islamic states and impose a perverted interpretation of Islam that outside nations believe to be the true essence of Islam

4)Often readers and writers of historical accounts, new's, ect... express their own bias towards Islam in their work ( i.e Marco Polo and the Legends of the Assasin's)

5)The world during the advent of Islam was different from todays world. It took a population of violent blood thristy people and transformed them into a civilization that was among the most advanced scientifically and culturally at its time.

6) the Quran is very different from the Bible, thus cannot be read like a book

8) people tend to fear what they dont understand
