AN OFFER OF PEACE TO OSAMA BIN LADEN

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam
in response to reader comment: "Islam is an irredeemable death cult"

Jaladhi is correct. Islam has, time and again, demonstrably proven itself to be little other than a death cult masquerading as religion. If this premise were wrong then, for one thing, there would be a deafening chorus of voices within Islam castigating the "We love death more than you love life" crowd.

Instead, there is deafening silence. Silence that is until, some poor Christian bastard makes the mistake of drawing a Charlie Brown figure with a turban on his head. Then, by Allah, the streets are filled with wild eyed Muslims screaming bloody murder for "REVENGE!!"

I think I have this straight, but let's double check. It's fine to murder, mutilate and destroy, as long as the perpetrator is waving a Koran in the air and chanting Allahu Akbar while doing so. But it's a horrible crime to draw a stick figure with the word Muhammad written underneath. Okay, clearly, there is not much common sense to be found in the twilight-zone like Muslim world view. So what should the West do in the face of this rabid madness? Roll over and play dead? Accept dihimitude like meek little sheep? Perhaps there's another approach more befitting a civilization worthy of survival in the face of this onslaught from the messengers of Allah.

In the spirit of fair play I would propose that we offer Islam, all of Islam a truce. Taking a cue from Osama Bin Laden, I say we give the Muslim world a chance to accept conversion to Christianity and/or Judaism. If they don't accept that option, then let's give them a chance to become second class citizens. They can pay us a tax for the privilege of sharing the planet with us. And just cause we're nice guys, we'll even let them use their own word to describe themselves "dhimmis". If they're unwilling to accept these two reasonable offers,then maybe we remodel Mecca and Medina in the same way they remodeled our World Trade Center six years ago today. Let them pray facing a smoking hole in the ground and see how much they like that. I say, "what's good for the goose"....
