But that noted, here are a few posts from another Muslim forum:
"Donating blood is a definite no no, but what about donations?...(Immediate next post) Actually I just thought of something. When you go to donate blood in general, you don't know where your blood is going to go (muslim or not-muslim) so this [donating] isn't too different."
"I agree this is the work of Allah. i'm more interested in the issue of the palestinians and iraqis..."
"Agreed. Nice post."
"I second that, but I can't help feeling a little sympathetic."
"There are restraints on sympathy, and some muslims see this as a chance to show their solidarity to their 'adopted country' or some other similar rubbish. Opportunism at its absolute worst. Either we be constant in this involvement in community or we don't."
"To use the statement 'our troops' or 'my Prime Minister' is very dangerous. Do you have an attachment to your troops or Prime Minister?"
