Regrding radical Islam versus "good" Islam

Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists
in response to reader comment: We should not collectivly punish muslims

Submitted by kman (United States), Oct 19, 2008 at 18:31

I have been an intent follower of the "news" since I was a young boy. I'm now 62 years old and much dissapointed with what pathetically counts as news today. Consequently, I began looking for my own sources.

Amongst many other things, I have watched the cancerous growth across and thoughout Europe. Wherever Islam sets up a base camp, the radicals follow and I find it extremely rare to hear anything from the "peaceful" Muslims. I find the peaceful Muslims are very quick to jump into bed with the radicals. You won't find but the barest traces of this in Christianity.

Here in the U.S. and our neighboring country of Canada, I have found increasing moves made by radical Islam to wedge its way into our society by bastardizing our own laws. (Check into the organization called CAIR.) They did this in Great Britain and, now, one cannot publish one little peep in the newspapers or even a book that says anything negative about Islam. Muslims have free reign throughout the Middle East, Pakistan, India, and most of Northern Africka to bomb, burn, and defecate on Christian churches. You won't find like behavior practiced as policy amongst Christians.

Don't give me that old malarkey about a "few" Muslims who are practicing Wahhadi militant Islam against what the majority wish. Islam is currently laying waste to any Christian element at all in all of Northern Africka, the Middle East, Pakistan, and what used to be a Chrsitian nation - Lebanon.

Our own publishers here and in Canada are under increasing pressure to re-write history to lie about the past histories of Islam. The peaceful effort is made first and, then, like a one two punch, it is followed by "anonymous" phone calls that allude to knowing where one's wife works and one's children go to school. I have seen Islam move in whatever way proves affective.

I have heard Islams stinging rebukes about corruption and filth in the West. I have also, read numerous accounts of radical Islamic cells being busted here in the U.S. and countless files of various kinds of "porn" found on terrorist computers. I know, they are just "checking out" how bad us westerners are. I see the vast corruption of my own society. I don't care for any of the alternatives offered by Islam.

I can't claim to read every speck of news that is out there. What I find conspicuosly absent is almost a total void in any American Muslims' abhorrence to radical Islam. I read shortly after 9/11 about a group of Islamic leaders in the U.S. who got together in California immediately after 9/11. Their topic had nothing to do with outrage or horror over what had just happened. They talked long about how soon a Muslim would be elected president. I know the Muslims are very committed to covering their trails so, I'm sure this has been largely discounted and in serious error by now.
