Muslims have own problems [Archives:2005/829/Letters to the Editor]
H Adolf Hughes
It seems as though the Arab world is obsessed with placing fault for their own problems, with either US or Israel or both.
Algeria appears to have successfully engaged itself in a civil war within its borders, without the help of either the US or Israel.
Not many years ago, Jordan had kicked out their Palestinian brothers out of the country.
Prior to the Kuwaiti invasion by Iraqi, many Kuwaitis held the same opinion about the US and Israel, yet today their thinking seemed to have changed a bit.
Iraq and Iran have engaged in a long war, no thanks to the US or Israel. Iraq killed many of their Muslim Kurdish brothers in North Iraq, no thanks to the US or Israel.
Egypt & Libya almost went to war.
Then there are conflicts of Pakistan / India, Russia / Chechnya, Sudan, Bosnia / Albania, Western China, and Sunni / Shiite.
It seems to me that Muslims seem to have problem with Hindus; Muslims seem to have problems with Christians; Muslims seem to have problems with Jews; Muslims seem to have problem with Muslims; and Muslims are more likely to die by a Muslim than by anyone else.
If Israel had disappeared from the Middle East, which some Muslims would love, the problem within the Muslim and the rest of the world would remain, as above mentioned.
