Muslims Are Warriors

I just read through your entire great article about Muslims, Islamism, Jihadism. I lived with my husband in Saudi Arabia on the Persian Gulf side in two different decades, the early 80s and the late 90s up until the attack on New York on September 11, 2001, after which we returned to the States.

My husband, a Chicagoan, with a MA in English and Middle Eastern languages however, spent his entire working life in Middle Eastern countries, starting as a Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan in 1964. He taught English to young Arab girls. (Yes Girls) After all this were only the mid 60s. He went on to Iran, Lebanon, where he first studied at the AUB and later taught English as a Foreign Language. He lectured during 3 different decades at the University of Petroleum and Minerals with 3 different kings. He painfully experienced the decline from the early 70s to the late 90s, meaning saw the Muslim countries retract from a somewhat life of the 20th/21st century (equal to the 1500 according to their calendar).

When we came back to the US, he started lecturing wherever welcomed about the culture, religion and the 2 Islams and/or the different factions of Muslims, Shia, Sunnis, Salafis, Sufis etc. and ultimately his own life experience there.
Americans were very keen on learning why Muslims would want to kill us. What did we do, they asked.

I agree with many of your statements. Although my knowledge only comes from my relatively short stays (4 years and 2 years), I have probably some different views on a number of things. I found it interesting when you compared the Hitler regime, which was practically and very successfully a (Volksverdummung) dumbing-down of the German people. I feel that something similar is happening to our world. The rise of socialism, fostered by people, who are billionaires and millionaires only to mention one, George Soros, the violence of protest groups, mostly financed by those, who will only want one thing, CONTROL. It appears that very few people can actually see or understand what is happening. It is the attempt FOR submission OF THE PEOPLE , control and oversight in return for a government that takes care of “You”. That is the communist idea, that was Hitler’s idea and it is the Islamic system and to an extent the LEFT here in America. It is basically happening in many countries, that are prosperous and are successful for lack of a better word.

I feel lucky to be in my late 70s, because watching our world frightens me. There is a book that I would like to recommend to you and I would love to hear your reaction. It is written by an Egyptian woman, fairly unknown, who emigrated to the US in the late 70s, (just like I did) married an American and became a Christian. She is about my age now. The book is called “Now They Call Me Infidel”. To hear her version of Islam, who knew nothing else while in her own country, to me is quite astonishing. Her expressions from my experience are completely alongside my views about Islam and Muslims of all kinds. I had many Muslim friends from different countries and regions while living there. The university’s faculty was housed on campus and very mixed with people of different ethnic groups and countries. In spite of some of the negatives , I did cherish my life there and all the travel I did in the region, through what I had read about in my childhood, “Thousand and One Night”.
