      u need educated reply to uneducated comment?...well he is right that bin laden is not doing all this for money or pleasure..bin laden is doing all these bcoz he is convinced of false interpretation of religion...he believes that even saudi is not islamic regime forget rest..he believes that taliban which used to flog girls and force them to live behind four walls, ban games , force man to have beard irrespective to whether they wish or not and hang people for small crimes , behead them was only islamic regime in recent times.

      bin laden is  man who doesnot understand even his own religion

        i know the comment is a fanatical rant but still the man who posted this is on the other side of the fence and firmly believes in what he says. so its only proper that a educated reply is in order from our side.

      If he thinks it is Osama's religion that makes him a terrorist.  Then I would say he was a religious man worshipping at the feet of evil.  No loving god would condone or support the horrific actions of a brutal man. If this person thinks that Bin Laden is a hero then he is also an evil person.

      My educated reply would be something like 'Thank you for that opinion.'

        Well i was thinking of making some points like Arthur did in a polite manner. Thank you for your opinion is letting him off too easy smile

          Actually, you missed the irony of my reply. The reason I suggested an overtly polite reply was to undermine any feeling of power the detractor might presume. I thought my reply quite dismissive and terse; somewhat the opposite of what the detractor might have sought.

          I don't see these posts as a way to make points, nor to change people's minds. If you think the poster needs 'punishing' then you take upon yourself a form of authority.

          You posted a topic in a the public domain in a world where such opinions exist. What real harm do those words inflict?

          I had similar issues with questions I posted and resolved to ignore the detractors... I have better things to do with my time than buy into petty power trips...

          But hey, it's one opinion among billions

      Um....

      So, a person who thinks the radical Islamist guy who's taken credit for orchestrating the killing of the people in the Twin Towers is doing "good" and "God bless him"   is one that you can't figure out how to reply to???

      Lord have mercy on us all.

    I would be respectful and honest (in your unknowing) thank the person for their careful thought and consideration and for taking the time to leave a comment.  We are but one voice and comments section is a place for all to express themselves.   WE don't know how the world will react so it's best to stay nuetral and not to risk insulting ones beliefs and feelings with uncertain remarks.  Thanks and Peace smile

    The polite and civil comment would be:

    "Thank you for your opinion".

    The rude & truthful response would be:

    "Why don't you learn to spell....?"

    don't think the person will really 'hear' the reply.  they might just want to make a statement.  and...may not interpret any response very well because of the language barrier.

      I have a tendency to agree with this thought.

      Sometimes a reply in question form may cause some thought in the other person. For example:

      I understand your feelings, but isn't working by peace a better option for all of us?

    Seems like he is just a die-hard fan of Osama.You can think about thanking him for his personal opinion.

    This is what i replied back.I mixed it up a bit. thank you all smile

    AL-BATTAR Thank you for your opinion.I understand your feelings, personally i believe no loving god would condone or support the horrific actions of killing another human being. that is evil. Islam preaches love. How can Osama bin Ladin be doing God's work if he is killing innocent people in the name of Islam? isn't working by peace the way your Allah thought you? If its indeed Osama's religion that makes him commit all these acts of terrorism then I would say he is a religious man worshipping at the feet of evil. Thank you for visiting my hub.

      This is a good reply if you are just trying to appeal to those people whose god is "a loving god" and whose ideals involve preferring peace over war. But let's face it, most of the sacred literature from around the world includes some praise of war-like behavior and some injuction to show no mercy to infidels. Do we really do ourselves a good service by simply ignoring those portions of religion that don't fit with our idea of decent behavior?

      Or might it be better to acknowledge that this could represent a rift between the values of one set of people and those of another?

    I'm not sure that I even understand what his opinion actually is. Irrespective of the (un)reasonableness of his own views, the real crime here is grammatical in nature!

    I cannot believe that an actual living person would write something so unintelligble and voluntarily submit it for public viewing and expect it to be taken seriously. I don't even think it's an "english as a second language" issue - even people who are learning another language are generally intelligble...I get the feeling he's a younger person, a member of the generation that language forgot.

    Kudos to you for having the respect to attempt an intelligent response!

    I'm a pacifist by nature, but if I could find the person who invented SMS texting slang, i'd go back in time and shoot them in the face.

    The last thing I would do is send him a mixed message by saying, "thank you for your opinion"  as someone else suggested. Surely here his comment was confusing enough so I understood why you hesitated in providing him with an answer.
    My take on it would be to respond sending a clearly strong message back to him. As to what message you choose to send back. I will leave that up to your choosing. wink

      Hi Susanlang i have since replied him thanks to some wonderful suggestions by fellow hubbers.

      AL-BATTAR Thank you for your opinion.I understand your feelings, personally i believe no loving god would condone or support the horrific actions of killing another human being. that is evil. Islam preaches love. How can Osama bin Ladin be doing God's work if he is killing innocent people in the name of Islam? isn't working by peace the way your Allah thought you? If its indeed Osama's religion that makes him commit all these acts of terrorism then I would say he is a religious man worshipping at the feet of evil. Thank you for visiting my hub.

      I hope this was polite, respectful and at the same time strong enough a reply for Mr AL-BATTAR who by the way is from Hong Kong smile

        ASHWIN,  That was a detailed and strong response, very good. Much better then just saying, "Thank you for that opinion."  And nothing more. smile
