Reader comment on item: Who was the Prophet Muhammad?
in response to reader comment: Mass murderers of History

Submitted by gavin (New Zealand), Feb 6, 2009 at 16:55

Faisals post was brilliant and I want to thank him because it displays so well the typical islamic mindset and also the willing ignorance that one needs in order to be a part of, or to validate the Islamic religion.

Faisal starts of by stating that: "it is amazing how people try to forget that most of the mass murderers of this century were either by a christian or Communist. ......."

And then to validate his erroneous statement Faisal goes on to list a range of "mass murders", none of which have been organized or carried out by genuine practicing,born again Christians. Thus we establish imeadiatly that Faisal is unable to discern the difference between the roman catholic religion/system, secualar "christinaity" and that which is genuinly christian).

Despite this, Faisals post was very helpful and should be a lesson for us all. Because it not only displays the "projection" exactly as earlier described by Emma, but it also displays clearly how the best defense islam (and the islamist) can give for their huge history of violence (and ongoing violence) is to point to the violence of others and claim the "two wrongs make a right" type of defense.

It also displays nicely the lies,errors, and ignorance that the islamists need to immerse themselves in in order to justify their thinly veiled hate (also nicely illustrated by Faisal) of all things "western" or "Christian" etc .

The islamist apologist either deliberately or in his brainwashed ignorance makes no distinction between communists/catholics/nazis/western leaders/genuine christianity etc, and the various acts of such groups even when these groups are diametrically opposed to each other. Because this lack of distinction allows the brainwashed islamist to condem ALL these other groups on the grounds of the acts committed by any of them,.

The irony here for the Islamist seeking to use such a strategy in order to condemn others, is however, that one can hardly look anywhere in the world where islam exists either in majority or substantial minority and not see the ,disharmony, friction, violence, and terrorist activities that are continually born directly out of official islam itself and continually perpetrated by it most loyal,dedicated, and fervent followers. One certainly does not need to lump Islam indiscriminately in with other non related eastern groups in order to build such a case against it.
