Respecting Muslims

Postby Donald » Tue Nov 30, 2004 7:34 pm

Osama bin Laden's second-in-charge is seen on a recent video tape telling the world in general and Americans in particular that they will be OK if they will just treat Muslims with respect. Well, that certainly sounds easy enough, doesn't it? Just treat Muslims with respect and everything is A- OK.

Definitions. We need definitions. I keep remembering the old Soviet Union and their protestations that they were soooo interested in world peace. Their definition of "peace" left much to be desired. To the communists, the definition of "peace" was "the absence of opposition to the world communist movement." That brings us to just what is meant by "respect." My guess is to treat Muslims with "respect" means to avoid any opposition to the Muslim radical's goal making Islam the world's dominant religious and cultural movement.

Muslims radicals need to learn that respect is earned...starting with treating their own with respect. :idea:
