What do we owe Muslims? Nothing

  • Follow Letters

I agree with other respondents to the letter from a Muslim who thinks America owes the Islamic world an apology ("Here's why we're apologizing to Muslims," Feb. 10).

Muslims owe the world an apology for the thousands of atrocities committed by Muslims in the name of Islam. I am sick of perpetually enraged, supremacist Muslims engaging in grievance theater while waging jihad to spread Islam and establish a worldwide caliphate. I am sick of Muslims persecuting Christians and Jews in Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Palestine, Lebanon and throughout the Holy Land, the birthplace of Christianity and Judaism.

Saudi Arabia forbids the practice of any religion but Islam, and forbids its millions of foreign workers to practice their faiths, and Jews are banned from entering Saudi Arabia. Yet they send their rabid Wahabbi clerics to America and around the globe, where Muslims enjoy unfettered freedom to practice Islam, proselytize and build mosques.

Islamic clerics, protected under our First Amendment, promulgate the predatory, intolerant doctrine of Islam, inculcating hatred of America, our culture, our way of life and our government. Muslims are obligated to spread Islam, by force if necessary, seize our wealth, usurp our governments and abolish all other religions. These radical clerics disseminate Islam's doctrine of hate, intolerance, supremacy and imaginary Muslim victimhood throughout the West, while our multicultural, politically correct politicians tell us that Islam is a religion of peace.

Islam is not a religion of peace; it is a bellicose, imperialist doctrine of perpetual war. Nobody should be allowed to promote sedition, rebellion and religious supremacy in America under the guise of freedom of religion, yet it occurs daily in thousands of mosques.

We owe Muslims nothing, least of all an apology. We need a drastic change in our immigration policies, which have become profoundly suicidal.

I'll trust Charles Manson

I'll trust Charles Manson before I'd trust the Muslims. Their own religious text states that it is ok to lie to the infidel to accomplish their goals. No Mazen, I don't trust you, or any other Muslim, any farther than I can throw you.

This is what you get when the blind and gullible vote for an inexperienced, unqualified community agitator that bullied, threatened, had questionable 'friends and connections' and used people to win office. He was proven to have marxist and social leanings when he was running for office. And now you expect anything different? The blind and gullible will continue to make excuses for barry hussein and be blind and gullible.

Dear Susan, The muslims are

Dear Susan, The muslims are not the only race on earth who use religion to start a war, we christians have started a few ourselves. I do agree that we owe no one an appology. I doubt if it would be accepted anyway. And Patricia I wonder how much money was sent to Israel to continue its barbaristic hold over the Palistenian people? But of course thats ok because thats against Muslims, and we need to get them converted or wiped out anyway.

When's the last damn time a

When's the last damn time a war was fought over Christianity, dissman? Also, Israelis' hold over the Palestinians? You're another one that's either naive or extremely ignorant. The Israelis have offered concession after concession after concession to those dirtbags and how are they repaid? By being barraged by rockets. ...and no, it's not just Hamas. If it was just Hamas, and the Palestinians truly wanted peace, they wouldn't have elected Hamas as their leading party. They'd have elected the semi-peaceful Fatah or installed another moderate form of government. The Palestinians don't want peace, unless it's pieces of the Jewish people at the bottom of the Med.

Since some continue to make excuses and can't give us anything positive about barry hussein, his policies/plans, and his administration, yes, they continue to be blind and gullible. No I'm not a sore loser, just realistic. When we state information with facts, we're sore losers and every other name. By your continuing posts, you prove the 'blind and gullible' fact to be true.

Susan Petrea, Regrettably I

Susan Petrea,

Regrettably I don't have time to address some of your points specifically; however, from your note it appears that your experience with Islam is entirely limited to indirect interaction with the culture. To comment intelligently on any situation, I believe it is valuable to have first hand experience with elements contributing to that situation. Having spent a considerable amount of time in Israel, Egypt, Turkey, and Palestine as well as several other countries in the region, I can tell you that your perception is naive at best. Of course there are bad apples in any batch, including other religious groups, but I highly recommend you use something other than 3rd person information prior to forming such a strong opinion about a subject.

For the record, I agree that an apology to the Islamic world is not called for. Certain policies that are supported by most Americans do lack any international perspective and garner their support entirely from incomplete or inaccurate information such as that proposed in your letter.

Best regards,

marantzer

JRHC: I believe you mean Boers, not Boars. The Boers were South African whites descended from Dutch nationals. Boars are male hogs. I'm reasonably certain the British didn't bother to go to South Africa to slaughter pigs.

BTW, when is Islam going to apologize to all the countries they've essentially taken over like the Philippines, Chechnya, Indonesia, the Sudan, etc.? There are more people in this world killed by Muslims each year than any other single country OR religion on Earth.

Cain, when are the Muslims that behaeded an innoent civilian and brodcast it to the world, unspeakabley tortured US soldiers by punching out their eyes and other atrocities, murder of 3000 innocent US civilians and I could go on? We owe Muslims NOTHING. How about YOU go and personally apologize to the Iraqis, Saudis, Yemenis and the other rag heads that are jihadist murderers in the name of Islam. Let's see how long you last.

Mazen, if the Saudis allow other religions to be practiced in private, why are US troops not allowed to bring their own private Bible into the country? BTW, weren't most of the 9/11 terrorists from Saudi and the Saudis don't owe us an apology? Yep, Muslim thinking at it's best?
