Reader comment on item: [Saudi Arabia:] Not Friend or Foe

Submitted by may (Saudi Arabia), Jun 3, 2003 at 21:24

I'm a saudi female student.I have studied in our saudi puplic schools and now I'm in college studying medicine,there is nothing wrong with our education system!!!. I think bin laden is the biggest terrorist of all time..and many saudis think that he is not truley a muslim. Islam is a word derived from "salam" which means Peace..How could u people generalize ideas as if they are facts?? our community is the most secure..we don't have metal detectors in our high schools...and most teenagers here are crazy about a lot of musical american bands...we don't hate non-muslims or anybody!
few years ago 3 british men put explosives near a mall in Riyadh city...they were arrested ofcourse...I didn't hate british ppl after that! and certainly I didn't think that all british ppl enjoy blowing things up!...
so 15 of the hijackers were saudis...they were teenagers mostly and terriblely affected by bin ladin's poison...DO u think that 15 individuals determine the minds and hearts of more than 20 million other saudis??
what happened in 11/9 was about to happen Here in Saudi Arabia (in Jeddah city 2months ago) ... terrorism has no religion ,No nationality....
