Rule by non-Muslims is an abomination

Reader comment on item: The Roots of Iraq's Rebellion

You say that "For Muslims, rule by non-Muslims is an abomination". This is scary because if true it means that being ruled by non-Muslims in any country is an abomination. This must include being ruled by Christians in the U.S. , Canada etc.

This then means that there are no "moderate" Muslims. They all want to destroy the U.S because they don't want to be under secular or Christian rule. . A moderate Muslim would then be the same as a moderate Palestinian. A fundamentalist Palestinian wants to destroy Israel by force and a moderate Muslim wants to destroy Israel by demographics or the slow destruction of Isreali society until it can be taken over easily. To me that does not make the Muslim a "moderate" .

It certainly leads to the conclusion that if all Muslims would like to live under Sharia Law then they would be happy to get rid of our system of laws. This would probably lead to the end of democracy as well as we would then have a rule of law and legal opinions based on religion.

Although this sounds very negative, it is the direction that your statement takes us and seems to be the way Muslims in the U.S. are heading.
