Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: Nothing's more fun than debunking "Muslim Logic"

to answer the comment , quite easily , its just a matter of time . Islam is a force unto itself -it simply is the reality of our and the universe's existance -it is far far more than a mere religion in the Western sense. It is ultimately independant of human folly and it is only those who get with the divine programme that is Islam that will succeed and I do not mean that these will be neccessarily "muslims" in name. It's quite possible that the west is more likely to adopt Islam as is should be practiced rather than the" East "remaining true to its principles. I say this because contrary to what is generally believed , Islam encourages debate, reflection , seeking knowledge, the spirit of enquiry and the advancement of human society as a cooperative body and that applies to both men and women. Unfortunately but not suprisingly it is misrepresented extensively and deliberately .
Where the Koran says do not take the Christians and Jews as your friends it is advising the believers don't rely on them to protect your interests from a political viewpoint and rightly so ! It is not in anyway talking about fighting /attacking/murdering them . Infact it refers to those of them who have stayed true to the original faith as "people of the book" and also worthy of dignity and respect. Islam preaches great tolerance and it is those Koranic passages which have been so conveniently overlooked .
Besides , the reason why so many Muslims are up in arms against the West is because either they are themselves oppressed and manipulated by the West (USA , Israel and allies) or their Muslim brothers/sisters are,so it is very logical for them to resist this oppression isnt it? And the level of oppression will dictate the degree of resistance. End the illegal occupation by Israel , end USA hegemony where it should stop trying to police the world and dominate world politics and resources and then you might just see the so called "terrorist threat" go away .
Noah Wilk is so decidedly prejudiced against Islam , he is incapable of being open - minded ,that any logical explanation of its Koranic principles rather than how it is interpreted and practiced in various traditions are wasted on him. He can only ever have a coarse superficial biased view of it becauses he chooses to hold on to his warped notions of it for dear life , lest any of the real message get through. That's what he is really afraid of, what he doesn't even comprehend.
