There are so many. However, to illustrate the point that Islam and the civilized world are utterly incompatible, let's focus on just one--the notion of suicide bombing. Civilized humans (Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, agnostics, atheists, etc.) cherish life, particularly the life and well-being of their children. Far too many Muslims, on the other hand, encourage and actually celebrate the death of their children, particularly when the process of dying involves killing as many innocent civilians as possible.

True, not every Muslim lobbies for their child to become a suicide bomber. However, neither do they march in protest against such atrocities. But God forbid, let someone draw a cartoon of a 7th Century pedophile and the Islamic ummah goes apeshit. And therein lies the core of the problem. Because the Muslim mindset is pretty much hardwired for homicidal lunacy. At any given moment, its just a matter of pushing the right buttons in the right believer. Here are all these fine Muslim fellows living and working in our midst.

But how are we supposed to know, by looking in their eyes, which of them are merely passive enablers and which are ready, at the drop of a hat, to light the fuse for Allah. When a Muslim wired to self-detonate steps on to a bus full of women and children and explodes himself murdering scores of poor innocents in the process, the Muslim world, in a cruel bastardization of a heretofore noble phrase, refers to the mad act as "martyrdom" and the vile murderer as a "martyr". So, the five year old little girl riding the bus with her mommy whose face was torn to shreds by flying shrapnel is but an infidel worthy of hellfire, but the fellow who, for no good reason, snuffed out her precious little life is, according to Islamic doctrine, a sainted martyr destined for 72 flavors of heavenly delight.

Photos of the brave lad who committed the "martyrdom operation" are hung gently and reverently on the wall. His act is praised again and again in firey sermons down at the neighborhood mosque. The faithful are encouraged that more young lads should follow his example and strap on suicide vests and blow up buses and airplanes and trains. It is the will of Allah, don't you know? See, eventually the infidels will give up and Islam will reign across the planet. Really, its all written right there in the holy book. The holiest of holy books. The magical wonderful mystical Qur'an.

...Based on this evidence alone, the non-Muslim world should rise up and rout out the Islamic pestilence from every town and every country not already under Islamic domination. We don't want them to go away angry. Just go away. Before its too late. Before what is happening to Eurabia happens to the United States. I am curious. How many people agree with the statement "we don't want them here, we don't need them here, we want them to go away!!!!! Not tomorrow. Not next week. Not if they promise to be nice. We want them the hell out of our cities, and out our country, and out of our lives, RIGHT NOW!!!!" How many more 9/11's do we need to get the message? ISLAM EQUALS DEATH! ISLAM EQUALS DEATH! ISLAM EQUALS DEATH! Wake up people! Before it is too late.
