This American Crash Course on Islam Has Been Corrupted and Requires "Correction."

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam

Submitted by Joseph Guida MD (United States), Aug 23, 2010 at 05:34

The Number One Corruption in this Crash Course on Islam is the concept that Islam differs from Islamofascism. As Wafa Sultan, MD has explained numerous times, there is NO SUCH THING AS RADICAL ISLAM. Islam is Islam. Islam is violent! Islam is a way of life that espouses violence, pedophilia, polygamy, and ethnic cleansing (in some cases, murder). It's fundamental tools are intimidation, misogyny, promise of sexual reward, and the premise that no men are created equal...that men are more "equal" than women, and that women just don't count. Islam is diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution (our Judeo-christian values) and the twain shall never be met!

As difficult as it is to say, and as difficult as it is to do, we must first try to convert Muslims back to Judeo-Christianity, or whatever religion that term covers, and away from Islam. Failing this, this may one day require utilizing weapons of mass destruction to rain death upon Muslim countries that are reticent to believe that Islam is a conjured up faith with little basis in reality. Clearly, if you examine the teachings of Mohammed and familiarize yourself with recent analyses of the origins of Islam, it becomes very obvious that Mohammed suffered from temporal lobe epilepsy with resultant vivid dreams. He interpreted these dreams as divine in nature and acted upon them, initially in somewhat reasonable ways, but ultimately, with violent recoil and dis-compassionate acts. Marrying a six-year old girl and consummating that marriage at age nine is clearly pedophilia in any century, notwithstanding Aisha. Beheading approximately 800 men and boys of the Banesh Queryza tribe (sp?) because they refused to drop their faith and become Muslim isn't exactly a peaceful act! No, Islam has no place in the modern world, and no amount of massaging or reform is going to cut it. Reform is the act of corrupting a religion.

Many feel that reformed Judaism is a joke. It certainly is one-sided...God didn't issue forth a communique allowing the consumption of pork! You are either Kosher or you're not! Likewise, transubstantiation in Catholicism is not an elective action. There is no buffet amidst the canons of "Holy Mother Church." Any violence that the Christian 'churches" may be guilty of then (the Inquisitions) or now (bombing abortion clinics) is not written into Christ's teachings, Paul's Epistles, or Apostolic teachings. On the other hand (and it is a big hand), violence is hardwired in Mohammed's teachings. You cannot remove it and still be left with Islam. What you wind up with is something other than Islam. In short, you are NOT going to convince the majority of Muslims that reforming Islam would leave you with Islam as the remainder...defanging Islam makes Islam something else again. Fear of violence is a massive part of Islamic belief and Islamic motivation. Threat of violence is again a massive part of Islam when it comes to converting infidels. Sexual gratification in the next life is the reward for jihadis that press the button of the suicide belt that they are wearing. Here is a rare example of a religion (actually a way of life) that espouses violence that results in sexual gratification. Sounds awfully similar to the crime of rape, doesn't it? How the hell do you reform that? You don't. You have to expunge it. You simply have to mourn over the loss of human lives that are lives counted as Islamic lives. They have to be thought of as a form of walking dead.

A committed Islamist is quite lost....irretrievable...inconvertible for the most part. If you can convert them, that would be rare and dangerous. You see, many would let you go on thinking you converted them right upto the last minute before they press the button on the suicide belt! They are excused for lying by the Prophet if lying serves the purpose of advancing their faith-way of life. It's like hyphenated space-time, only with violence added in. And borrowing from Einstein and Hawking again, we need to let Islamists go the way of the singularity, without taking us Judeo-Christians with them!
