Islamophobia

Reader comment on item: Trouble in Londonistan
in response to reader comment: Islamic Ideology is the inspiration & motivation for the Islamic Jihad & Suicidal Attacks

...people are expected to believe he took the time to research modern Islam and form educated opinions? His blanket statements about all of Islam and his Rightist viewpoint leave him looking less like a credible source of commentary..., It is disgusting to see such blind rhetoric thrown about in such an unseemly manner, especially when he is attacking Islam for its supposed "fiery" Mullahs and its spouting of "propaganda".

As for banning such television and media networks, as this man proposes, does he ever truly watch networks such as Al Jazeera? True, they do air tapes from Islamic militant factions, yet they are news networks nonetheless, and are obligated to report on affairs in the Middle East.

If Britain or the United States was faced with militant armies operating within our own borders or in neighboring nations, you can be sure that CNN and the BBC would be covering those groups just as heavily as Al Jazeera covers Hamas and Al Qaeda. This man has no right to speak about Islam, he is only an Islamophobe - his knowledge of the modern Islamic world is obviously limited. ... I can only hope he reads this comment, and knows that he is wrong.
