Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists

Submitted by Lynn (United States), Oct 8, 2008 at 08:59

It would be impossible to sway Muslims since they would have to deny the words and deeds of the founder of their faith since he himself practiced the behaviors and spoke the words we are fighting against. There is also the fact that in their faith they are allowed to lie so the answers to the polls can not be trusted as true. There is also how the faith was spread through fear so there are many who would not deny the militants or try to stop them because they are terrorized.

One of the reasons that we are experiencing a world wide push to spread Islam and sharia law is because I think they are worried that people are starting to question the teachings of this faith and they are being exposed to other ideas and the beliefs of other faiths so the militants are worried that their time is short before enlightenment reaches the entire world and they will be exposed.
