am an Irish convert to Islam and after listening to
the piece on The Last Word with Matt Cooper
I felt it necessary to allow you to see an
article written by a leading Islamic scholar.
is a balanced piece written for consumption by Muslims
however you may find it interesting. I am personally
disappointed by your publishing of the cartoons but
then I am not your keeper. I believe in free speech,
many people died in order to attain it, and I feel
they would be disappointed to see that right used
as a method of ridicule or worse as a medium for lies.
Prophet Mohammed is well recorded in history so his
story is easy found. He was not a terrorist so any
articles or cartoons depicting him as such are fictional.
It is correct that there are problems in areas in
which Muslims live but you will find that these are
caused mainly by either customs which are not from
Islam such as genital mutilation or sects of Islam
(wahabbism) which hold extreme and narrow interpretations
of Islam which are very distant from the reality of
Islam which has existed peacefully for 1400 hundred
would be delighted to hear from you regarding your
thoughts on the article
below or if you have any further questions relating
to the true Islam which I studied that does not get
much media time because it is mainly peaceful and
does not over react.
