Saudi writer: Islamophobic extremists are a threat to world peace

In last week’s column, I wrote about Islamophobia and how it is misleading many and making them enemies of Islam in the West.

I had hoped that my article would influence a more tolerant approach toward innocent Muslims who are being killed and displaced and whose homes are being destroyed by terrorists in the name of Islam.

However, I was really saddened by the attack I received for trying to address the issue and promote a better understanding.

One of the letters that was very disturbing showed an extreme contempt for Islam, closing all doors for dialogue and rapprochement.

I will include some extracts that reveal the extent of the defamation that goes on in the attempt to give Islam a bad name.

“I just don’t like Islam and what it stands for. I don’t like the lies being told about a peaceful religion but the Qur’an and hadiths tell a different story.”

“I can read and do not need a Muslim cleric to reinterpret the Qur’an and hadiths. They say what they say and no amount of reinterpretation will change that.”

“I have read many stories about your Prophet, and I don’t find anything that he did or said to be an example to mankind”…

    Well the Soddy Gazette didn’t like my comment!
    Tolerant as always, I see.

      They’re real models of toleration in Saudi..

        Maybe I’ll get my own fatwa now.

      Yes, they have free speech for everyone who regurgitates the words of the Grand Mufti of Soddy Barbaria.

    Islam and islamiphobia are doing the same thing for world peace that NAZIism and nazipbobia did for it.

    I wonder if this idiot is aware that some of his readers might recognize those quotes from the letter as the truth.

    Jose Cuervo should be warned there is a new takkiya coming on the market

    Writing that nice article saved her from getting bitch-slapped later…

    I guess it all depends as to how one defines peace. The Saudi/islamic variety sure doesn’t fill the bill for me.

      Moslemic peace is when you are free to slaughter your own citizens without someone else doing it for you.

    This is actually kind of funny. It must be aimed at the sort of people that _still_ fall for the Nigerian prince scam. Who can look at the Muslim world today and think it’s anything but a collection of nasty theocratic dictatorships full of violent religious fanatics? That the world of Sharia law is anything but oppression? Who can look at the history of the Koran and Mohammed and see anything but the ravings of a power-hungry brigand who made up a bunch of stories to hook people in [when he wasn’t buying their loyalty with loot and slave girls and sending assassins against his critics]. It’s truly a Bizarro world…

    This woman is paid to write propaganda for the Soddy Barbarians. She feels that criticism of Islam causes young people to become terrorists. So if we don’t criticize terrorism, there simply won’t be any terrorists. On the other hand, if NO ONE criticizes the terrorists, what will be done to stop them?

    The Muslims will certainly not criticize the jihadists who are the heroes of the majority of Muslims according to the opinion polls.

    This writer tells us to simply surrender and it won’t be so bad, will it?
