Islam is at war with us all, so it is logical to use new converts for terror as they are so full of zeal....April ..2010

Reader comment on item: [Beltway Snipers]: Converts to Violence?

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Apr 7, 2010 at 11:42

True we can not think of all converts to Islam as terrorists. However the reason we are talking about it is due to the high number of islamic acts of terror committed by new converts to Islam.

We don't see this when other people convert to being Jews or Christians!

Islam is fully at war with us all and we need to start to develop new ways of thinking. Firstly that radical islam people don't hate us for what we do i.e. support Israel or have democracy but it is simply the fact that we do not submit to allah. Secondly that there are new converts to islam who have taken violent actions against us. Third is the fact that these act of terror are not "crimes" that should go through the court system ...but ...rather the terrorists are " illegal enemy combatants and they need to be tried in military court and capital punishment should be used frequently.

Clearly many many followers of Islam hate us, we need to be defending ourselves in a serious manner, sadly now in early 2010 , all of us are not thinking of radical Islam as the true threat that it is.

Submitting....
