Islam Is An Imperialistic political/religious System

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Eliezer (United States), Jul 31, 2002 at 20:07

A prominent symbol of Islam is the sword. I suppose one could assert, because Arabs use "salem" as a salutation and greeting, that this word means peace and therefore Islam is a religion of peace. Often, one finds what one is looking for, rather than what is really there. As the Torah explains, the nature of Ishmael, son of an Egyptian woman named Haggar and whose father was also Abraham, "Ishmael will be a wild ass of a man, whose hand will be raised against every man, and every man's hand raised against him." Now does THIS suggest Islam, the religion of Ishmael, could be a religion of peace? One must judge a teaching by it's fruits, and the fruits of Islam have been war, bloodshed, barbarism, slavery, debauchery, deception, repression, brutalizing of women and children and a legion of other uncivilized crude conduct and behavior. And exactly where can we find an enlightened Arab leadership which strives to uplift and guard the dignity of it's people?

What is an Islamist terrorist other than one who advocates and promotes Islam throughout the world as THE dominant religion, which by the way is 'inclusionary' of politics? In fact, one of the most bigoted and racist and exclusionary teachings in the world, IS Islam. As a non-Muslim, try to be buried in Saudi Arabia for instance. And one last thing.... Whereas millions of young boys are preyed upon and buggered by Arab pederasts, this is the etiology of barbarism and ignites violence throughout the Arab world. Peace will not come to Islam until even this one plague is resolved, and to do this, women must beable to assume their rightful and equal role beside men in the Arab world. Paradoxically, what the Arab world and Islam fears the most, is that which WOULD bring true peace to Ishmael. God willing... one day soon.
