Muslims: Love the People, Hate Their God

Here are two people with very different backgrounds making what I perceive to be similar points about Islam and the Muslim people.

In the Wall Street Journal today, we have a piece quoting Mosab Hasan Yiusef, the son of a Hamas leader, arguing that:
"At the end of the day a traditional Muslim is doing the will of a fanatic, fundamentalist, terrorist God. I know this is harsh to say. Most governments avoid this subject. They don't want to admit this is an ideological war."

"The problem is not in Muslims," he continues. "The problem is with their God. They need to be liberated from their God. He is their biggest enemy. It has been 1,400 years they have been lied to."

Then we have this very brief (55 seconds) in which Geert Wilders explains his concerns with Islam:

Many intellectuals argue that there are many understandings of the Quran and not one Islam. But both these men see the violence in Islam as essential to it, as the way God is portrayed in the Quran.

I believe it is the Muslim's prophet Mohammad that is the problem. It is his teachings that have deceieved the Muslim people. Having chosen to accept Ishmael as Abraham's first born and following his line has established the conflict and antagonism that exists between Muslims and Christians. Ishmael hated Isaac. This is a very thought provoking blog.
