Religious Fanatism is an Western Invention!

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by irfan P (Netherlands), Jun 21, 2003 at 18:25

The "modern","wise" and "enlighted" western people who think that religious fanatism is an Islamic Invention should buy a History book. Here they can read that the "enlighted" europeans made crusades to free the holyland. Ironically their first victims were christians in the Ottoman Empire, because they...could not understand that the Ottomans didn't make any difference between religions. they were muslims, but jews and christians were ALSO people of the Book were treated accordingly with same rights.

For those who think that Islam is a religion of hate and terror i would advice to buy one and read it so that they can discover that the islam is a religion of Peace (=Islam).
islam is the only religion which has tolerance for other religions. Moses and jesus are both very important prophets in Islam, but the real jesus and not the Roman Jesus.
