An email from a “friend”

in Friends, Ranting

I received an email from my so called childhood friend commenting on the entry and email I wrote about sect discrimination in Kuwait (Sunnis and Shiites) I’m sharing this email just to show you how some people back home are pure ignorant, here’s what she wrote:

WE ARE STILL FRIENDS BUT I HAVE NO TIME FOR YOUR TRASH EMAILS (ABOUT SHIITE AND KUWAITI PEOPLE) , SO STOP SENDING THESE KINDS OF EMAILS . A USEFUL EMAILS WOULD BE MORE SUITABLE FOR CIVILIZED PEOPLE.

Now keep in mind we are both Sunnis but unlike her she believes that Shiites and other Islamic sects that differs from her beliefs, for example Sufism, are heretics. then again not all Sunnis are alike. Some are respectable and willing to debate in an intellectual manner, and of course others choose to personally attack you like my dear “friend” here. It’s kinda funny and it doesn’t bother me at all. At least I’m not blinded by lies and ignorance, as a matter of fact my reply to her was a simple “Thank you”.

IF
speaking the truth, respecting other people’s religions, not being a racist, not treating foreign workers as slaves, not being an extremist, not calling people infidels or heretics. Thinking that terrorist attacks against innocent people even if they’re NOT Muslims was wrong, thinking bin laden is NOT a hero but a murderer, believe all Islamic countries are corrupted, and majority of Muslim rulers are tyrants
is considered as trashy and uncivilized then I’m one proud happy uncivilized and “trashy” woman 😀
