Suleiman

This is not tolerance but weakness and a perversion of our faith. I believe Africans, particularly the ethnic peoples of West Africa practice an unsophisticated form of Islam which crumbles at the slightest contact with Western "civilization".

The Quoran is very clear on its position about Christianity:

"They surely are infidels who say, "God is the third of three"; for there is but one God; and if they do not refrain from what they say, a severe punishment shall light on those who are unbelievers."

As for the muslims of Bamoun, let them pay heed to the following verse:

"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued"

Ma Mary

What constitutes tolerance then, Suleiman?

Historian

What do you know? The first person to respond to this article is an Arab fundamentalist imperialist, with their usual condescending tone towards Africans. FYI the Bamouns adopted your religion. Your religion did not adopt the Bamouns, so they can leave it if it becomes an instrument of destruction and division of their people.

Before the Bamouns adopted Islam during the time of the grandfather of the present Sultan, he had the choice to adopt Christianity, but chose Islam because he already had many wives and monogamy is required in Christianity. Even at that time, he gave his people the right to chose either of the religions.

This is your racist statement:

"I believe Africans, particularly the ethnic peoples of West Africa practice an unsophisticated form of Islam which crumbles at the slightest contact with Western "civilization".

I would like you to know that before the Bamouns adopted Islam, they were Bamoun and still remain Bamoun, with their own as you put it "civilization". The Bamouns have been good hosts, putting up with elements of your Arab "civilization". If you are not happy, take your "civilization" and religion and LEAVE Africa.
