I've always known all this.

Reader comment on item: Two Decades of the Rushdie Rules

Submitted by Michael (Egypt), Oct 1, 2010 at 20:58

For decades, through my life in Egypt, I've been aware of all that. Islamism's progress is not because of power, but because of the flimsiness and passiveness of the Westerners in the first place.

I had known a German woman who had married an Egyptian Muslim ten years ago. He forced her to convert to his religion so she obeyed blindly. After delivering his child, whom he called Ahmed, he came to Egypt with her and the child. Here she found out that he was married to another woman. She asked him to divorce her. He laughed and said no. Then he beat her and divorced her and threw her away; and the child he kept with him in Egypt irrevocably.

I had always wondered how come a European woman like that would marry a Muslim man. And I knew not the answer untill I made her acquaintance. I didn't see a courageous smart woman as I had expected, but a passive, shiftless creature who had been infused with a great dose of humanism and multiculturalism crap.

The reason why they are winning over you is that you let them do that. I'm a Christian living in Egypt and I know what dhimmitude is like. Please save yourselves for no one else will save you.

Fight Islam before it is too late. Ask the non-Muslims of my country.
