This isn't Islam

Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam

If radical islamists feel that islam is the answer to world problems, then why is taliban given as an example? why is the examples of women not attending schools, or the ban on flying kites! Islam is not that bad, or not bad at all, the way afghani taliban had shown, nor is it as horrible as the ignorants pracitce.

islamic civilisation has a history longer and brighter than this cheap example, they know little of islam and inspite of that are being taken as the best example to show the world. where in the history of islam have women been deprived of education? or how were we expected to have a greater generation of people when we leave their mothers (or rather the most important part of the parents) as ignorants?

Islamic civilisation has a great past, a bold history which should be respected and sought and copied, the advancement in science and technology were remarkable, all the fields of sciences have grown rapidly in that era, buildings, roads, farms and all aspects of life had been push steps ahead of what they were before the coming of the religion of submission.

Indeed it would be impossible to bring about those glorious days by members such as the talibans, a mostly ignorant lot of fighters in the middle of the afghan deserts, away from the light of truth and doing what they want by their tribal standards understanding the religion rather than from the perspective of an educated scholar.

It's a propaganda used against a weak and divided religion, unjust and unfair...
