Erdogan accidentally spoke the truth

Reader comment on item: Erdo─čan: "Turkey Is Not a Country Where Moderate Islam Prevails"

Submitted by James McCluskey (United States), Dec 17, 2007 at 06:24

When Prime Minister Erdogan said in so many words that there is no moderate Islam in Turkey he spoke thre truth. He also said there should be no qualifying words before or after Islam."There is only Islam". How true this is.

The Koran and Hadiths are very unambiguous when they speak about the treatment that is to be meted out to unbelievers."They are accursed of Allah"."Kill them wherever you find them".The Koran instructs the faithful Muslim to fight us unbelievers until we either convert or agree to live in humiliation as "dhimmis" under Islamic jurisprudence.What is so difficult to understand about this? To borrow a phrase from Charles Krauthammer,"the Koran says what it says".There is no moderate or radical Islam.There is only Islam.

Some of the wonderful things Islam brings to the world are:forced conversions,arranged marriages of pre-pubescent girls to much older men, female genital mutilation,presecution and killing of unbelievers in Muslim lands and the destruction of their churches and temples,relegation of women to second class status, temporary marriages,polygamy,the stoning to death of adulteresses or any other woman who is deemed to be immodest,the killing of any Muslim who dares to leave Islam.These are just a few examples of the tender mercies of Islamic jurisprudence.In the past 1350 years this vicious political system which masquerades itself as a religion has slaughtered over 300 million people in the name of Allah.This killing continues on a daily basis around the globe.

www.thereligionofpeace.com gives a daily running account of terrorist attacks around the world.It says in the Bible when speaking of how to judge a peoples character that "you shall know them by their fruits".We see the fruits of Islam every day on television,in the newspapers and on the internet.It is inescapable.Islam now dominates every news report every day with accounts of it's death and destruction to others.The notion that Islam should not be associated with terrorism is beyond ridiculous.C.A.I.R.,just like it's counterparts in Europe,is doing it's utmost to stifle free speech in America through harrassment and lawsuits against anyone they believe offends Islam.

Excuse me,but it is high time this religion was offended and held accountable for it's actions.All this hatred is being taught to Mulims in their mosques in America and around the world.Where does all this hatred and persecution come from? Look in the Koran.
