Every muslim is guilty, please do not pat the backs of moderate muslims

Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam

Submitted by Mohammed (United States), Apr 6, 2007 at 11:32

The islamic problem will not alleviate itself if we continue to pat "moderate" Muslims on the back, assuring them that we "know" nothing is really wrong with their religion, only that there is something wrong with the Bin Laden's of the world - most of americans never having picked up a Qur'an in their lives, and not even knowing what the Sunnah is, and therefore having no basis of "knowing" something is wrong with Bin Laden, not Islam.

In the same way that ignorance of the law does not constitute a valid defense, not bothering to find out about the true nature of Islamic precepts and practices and blindly doing Islam's biddings constitutes inexcusable wrongdoing. Muslims, therefore, are indictable for subscribing to the Quran and committing themselves to carrying out its ruthless instructions at great harm to the non-subscribers. Thus, every single Muslim knowingly or unknowingly is practicing crime against humanity.

The fact is that being a Muslim is a clear admission of wrongdoing, the extent of which depends on the degree of a person's Muslim-ness. If he is only no Muslim and does not practice Islam, then he is, at the very least, guilty of hypocrisy. If he is somewhat of a Muslim by tithing, from time to time, following the ranting of the local mullah or imam, and swallowing whole the pronouncements of the high divines, then he is guilty of significantly contributing to the evildoings of Islam.
