The tyranny of Islam

Reader comment on item: [The Issue of Compulsion in Religion:] Islam is What Its Followers Make of It
in response to reader comment: Quran is first and Last, nothing Else

From a UK perspective. Islam is growing too much by a high breeding rate and illegal immigration of mostly Pakistani origin into the country. Islam shows itself to be seriously flawed. The greatest cheats and liars are from their community. They avoid taxes, ignore laws and act as though everything they do is a 'right'. They cannot see that Islam is a death cult. It looks after its own and curses those who live outside its narrow world.

Islam hates beauty. Islam hates music, art and light. Islam takes everything and gives nothing. Islam wants to live in a cave and ritually slaughter animals. Islam wants to stone to death a 13 year old girl who was raped by powerful men. Islam loves darkness and death. They want a world caliphate, where no-one can think for themselves. If this primitive state could happen, how would it be. Forget anything which is pleasing or which improves the human condition. Inventions would be outlawed unless some self-appointed mullahs approved, everyone would pray five times a day to a god who demanded everything from them and gave nothing in return.

What is it that sets mankind apart from the animal world - intelligence and creativity. Mankind has lifted himself (herself) from primitive conditions and can travel any distance, dream any dream, climb the highest mountain or even go to the moon. Islam demands total obedience. Nothing must be questioned or the verdict is always the same - death. Look how the jihadists delude themselves. They will kill innocent men, women and children and expect to go to heaven and rape 72 virgins. They say that no westerner is innocent because their governments have retaliated aginst their self-styled jihads. Not even babies who are not old enough to decide for themselves.

These murderers will have felt every death on their way to hell. every piece of shrapnel in every human being. What does Islam 'bring to the party' - is it goodwill to fellow human beings or tyranny? In the Tsunami disaster, UK collectors raised millions of pounds without regard to the religion of the affected areas. Christians and non-Christians alike helped people in distress. They saved lives and made poor lives better (except for some fraud in Indonesia where new hotels were built by Muslims with the money).

But Muslims do not care about non-Muslims. They are not compassionate or merciful - words which begin every chapter of the Q'ran - except towards fellow Muslims. What of their god? Mankind has spent millions of years reaching the current point of advancement but Islam says that non-believers in their primitive rites and religion are worthless beings and can be disposed of like dogs. Would any sensible god behave like that. And, talking of behaviour, is their god so much of a girl that he is upset by cartoon drawings. At least the God of the civilised world can take a few insults without crying. No, Islam is the path to oblivion.

The example of Muslims is that it leads to criminality, selfishness and corruption. It is a dead end and revels in death. It gives nothing to the world but demands everything. Mankind has withstood many challenges throughout our development and this one will eventually be seen for what it is. Intelligence and humanity will wipe it from the earth in good time. The human spirit will prevail over tyranny.
