GUEST,Steamin' Willie The Black Cloud of Islam by Roy Harper (100* d) RE: The Black Cloud of Islam by Roy Harper 16 Feb 11

Expect a bit better from Mr Harper. I'm a tad disappointed.

I have Muslim friends, I work with Muslims and whilst irreligious myself, respect that people of any faith are following a moral compass.

I don't recognise my friends in any of that. None I know wear a veil other than one who wears it when attending prayers, none of them walk behind their husbands and to my knowledge are saddened when the media tar them with the same brush as those who use religion as an excuse for their more temporal issues. Jihad is just that, an excuse to appeal to peoples' faith in order to compel them to do the deeds of those hungry for power.

There are parallels in most organised religions, including (very much so) Christianity.

When my mother in law goes to church, I don't expect her to be attending brain washing sessions on how to oppress minorities, yet the Bishops love to push their bigotry on the telly?

Same with Islam. it is a way of life, a moral code and is being exploited by those who see religion as a tool. T'was ever thus.

A bit sad in the meantime for Mr & Mrs Khan down the street who want to make friends and get out more but have been brought up in a society where they are looked down on by others. But that's Western openness for you......
