Reader comment on item: When Conservatives Argue about Islam
in response to reader comment: Moderate Muslims?

Kenny wrote "A moderate Muslim is an oxymoron. Right now, Islam has to be viewed as much as a subservisive ideology as it is a religion with the burden on individual Muslims to prove otherwise. And it follows from this that there has to be severe restrictions on Muslims being allowed to enter America on visas, work permits, or as students. Political correctness notwithstanding, the United States is not obliged to accept any and all comers. We can set the criteria for entry into our country and we need to do it with national security in mind.".

Kenny:

I can only agree with you partially.

Islam as a moderate religion is an oxymoron. And to me, considering islam even a religion is an even bigger oxymoron. Islam is not a religion; it is a violent cult ideology. Islam and Democracy are incompatible and should be declared so by law (by all western democratic states).

As a member of ACLU, it pains me to make the above statements (sorry, I have no intention of resigning from ACLU and no intention of reducing my small support to ACLU).

We should stop all entry of all muslims for any and every purpose, except for a very short entry for business travel (no family visa for business travel); for a muslim, US is an immoral place for vacations. Moreover, the only thing a muslim can do during vacation is to recite Koran continously. A muslim man or a woman will be a hypocrite if he/she vacations in Las Vegas or Atlantic City or Monaco or even on a western cruise ship where gambling is allowed and booze flows easily.

There is no half-a*s solution to muslim/islamic problem and we should not look for one. Extreme problems require extreme solutions. Rather, the solution, though extreme, is very simple -- declare islam and democracy as incompatible and get rid of all muslims from western democratic countries (I am sure we can find some ways to ignore US Constitution in this case).. Islam has nothing more and good to contribute to the civilized world; we already have plenty of knowledge of Islam.

The only contact should be for very short business relations only; other than oil (and that too only from the Middle East), they have very little to contribute to business (in any case, oil will soon be exhauseted and muslims will have nothing to contribute to the world of business either -- just remember Peak Oil.)
