in response to reader comment: Taqiyya in use in Islam

About a month or so ago, Robert Spencer, director of jihad watch, reported on the gathering of Islamic countries.

He noted that instead of talking about terrorism and suicide bombings, they declared that Islam was under attack.....by people such as the Danish cartoonists.

Your concerns are very well noted, because Islam has pretty much spread by the sword. That is what Mohammed did, and like any loyal followers will do, they followed his example and do so today. The spread is a growing problem even in Canada, and liberal governments continue to ignore it thinking that everyone in the whole wants to be just like them.

Of course, the radicals are exploiting this.

Forty years ago, when Muslim immigration to the west got going, any such remarks about Islam would draw ire and chants of racism (they still do). But more and more academics such as the Vatican, Dr. Pipes, Robert Spencer and others seem to agree that radical Islam and Islamism is a great threat.

Robert Spencer, who has a degree in theology and is an expert in Islam, feels that sharia is a very real possibility in some European countries in the near future. I feel the same. What is going is very secretive, and radical Muslims are gaining control of the inner complexes and turning them into mini Saudi Arabias. This is just a start. They are not expanding so much so as not to draw attention, and invariably they know the Muslim population will grow in Europe, and they will wait a few decades before they make their move.

In Ontario, I am aware that several rural terror training camps were busted by police, and a prominent Pakistani imam is encouraging Muslims to move to rural areas to set up terror cells.

Even in USA, a man was keeping Indonesian women as a slave girl as Dr. Pipes writes about: http://www.danielpipes.org/article/2687

We always hear about how everyone wants to come to our countries for our freedom. We are oblivious to the fact that

1) many people get snuck in against their will.

2) Not everyone wants to live in our countries

3) Not everyone likes our way of life, and they will use our democratic institutions against us.
