If they are Saudi, they are fanatics

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by samy mikhail (United States), Jun 19, 2002 at 23:25

As a person who is very familiar with Islam and Muslim extremists and also from a Middle Eastern origin, sometimes I wonder; is our president truly ignorant about the issue of Islam or he has simply sold this country willingly to the Saudis for the sake of oil. Any Islamic organization or Middle Eastern organization that is not supported by the Saudi will never get recognition from this administration. On the other hand, any Islamic organization or Middle Eastern organization that is supported by the Saudi is indeed a fanatic, extremist, anti-American organization. It's hard for me to believe that this president is not aware of this fact. There is many true moderate Islamic organization and Muslim people around the world, in Turkey for instance, that are truly modern and moderate.

These organizations should be getting the attention and support of this administration, even if the Saudi don't like it. I believe the American people should send a clear message to this president; you are either with us or you are with the Saudi, the only axis of evil that I know of.
