islam is a stunted culture and world

Reader comment on item: A New Round of Anger and Humiliation: Islam after 9/11

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Jun 2, 2007 at 07:50

The muslims hate us . They see our wealth and they can not understand why they dont have what we do , so they get mad at us. The islamic countries have invented nothing in the last 1000 years this is due to the rigid way the koran and clarics run the lives of muslims. Out of fear the people can not question anything , how can they discuss the stars , planets, and planes when islam teaches that the world is flat due to the fact that their prophet mohammed said " the world is laid out like a carpet " In some culture people are encouraged to ask questions and seek knowledge . Not in islam , asking questions is not good this has led to the economy being shabby in many places. Imagine if islam did not have all that oil or only half of it , what would they be doing to get by. The people who have power do not want people asking questions or learning more than they need.

The modern world has left islam behind , muslim then get mad for this and blame us for their failings. The Christians and Jews have invented t.v. computers , planes . radio and all modern medicine , this is why the muslim feels humiliated , the muslim looks at all we have and thinks we must have done something wrong to get it , why else would we have so very very very much and the muslims have so little.

if muslims wish to be part of the modern world they must allow free speach and free ideas in their culture.
