Thuggees

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by donvan (United States), Aug 29, 2007 at 15:46

The Hindus had their Thuggees, and the Abrahamics have Islam. Similar in dogma, ie deception, killing non believers, and apostates. Imagine if the Thuggees had nuclear weapons, mass media, and billions of dollars. As the pattern and practice of Islam reveals itself over time, a similar image emerges of a cult -like belief system, with static laws,customs, and rituals and enforcement by inhuman brutality and murder. Just as the Thuggees introduced murder to children at age ten, and glorified it , one has only to look to the Islamics in Gaza, Iran,and other Islamic lands to see the similarity. The notion that we may not use the tools of law making to discourage the Abrahamic Thuggees seems like granting a license to kill.
