Islam and communism

in response to reader comment: Islamocommunist is not a word!

You call for the "naming" of Islam as Islamocommunist. The Marxist ideology is secularism which is the mother of both communism and democracy!

Mother of both? Yeah, because communism and democracy are so much alike.

They were both created by atheists.

I thought the first democracy was created by pagans?


We all know how Muslims feel about secularism.

By reading your posts, we know how YOU feel about secularism. Some Muslims embrace it with open arms.

In fact, what aspect of Marx can you attribute to the religion of Islam?

Stop referring to Islam as solely a political movement when it is a religion. In fact, Islam can be called the anti-Marx.

Islamism is pretty much anti-everything non-Islamic, isn't it?

It's amazing how much of these responses are so void of sense.

Everyone's except yours and sTs's, right?


The fact that God exists in this system would be anti- communism!

Socialism does have a way of keeping God out of the circle, yes.

The fact is that Islam is something unlike the world has known.

That's not a fact, Nura, that's a perception, and one that I have disproving to you all along. The ideas behind Islam were taken largely from other religions---pagan, Judaism, Roman Catholicism. Mohammed's ideas on subjugation of those who don't agree with him and on masking secular ambitions through a fake prophecy are hardly original or unique.

You can not put it in any group other than its own. Your desire to group Islam with communists is only for the benefit of war lingo.

Actually, the communists and Islamists have united to cause chaos before. Their goals are similar: to destroy Judaism and Christianity.
