of course islam is 'just' islam

Reader comment on item: Oklahomans Say No to Sharia
in response to reader comment: "Islam" is just "Islam"!

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Nov 23, 2010 at 03:48

MdShafiqM, writing from the sheltered Wahabist kingdom of Saudi Arabia, frustrated at his inability to convince sane people living in the real world that they can benefit from his particular form of madness, continues on with his demonstrably untrue assertions:

"Islam is just Islam."

yes, just as communism is 'just' communism, just as scientology is 'just' scientology, .........just as a snake is 'just' a snake.

"....There is no such thing as "moderate" Islam."

Well done! A good liar cleverly states one truth in a whole bunch of lies to con people. Now - here's an historic quote you might learn from:

""If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." - Joseph Goebbels

Now - replace the word 'state' with 'umma' (the islamic supra national quasi-state) in that paragraph and you've got a good picture of what is happening to islam.

"....Islam is not "to be judged" by, rather, it is Islam that "judges"!

OK, another truth thrown in - Islam certainly judges - we can agree on that. But because of that fact - islam is certainly to be judged. Throwing judgement out the window in an effort to appear to be tolerant is sheer, unmitigated stupidity. "...By their fruits ye shall know them" a great teacher once stated. Discernment is a function of intelligence. No doubt you'd really, really like people to stop using and exercising discernment.

"....Who has more divine knowledge to qualify the divinity of 'Islam"?

When trying to ask rhetorical questions don't set yourself up for immediate failure by asking questions that have obvious answers. Who has more divine knowledge to qualify Islam?? Hindus, Buddhists, Christians and Jews come to mind - in fact any non-Islamic people living amongst or on the edge of muslim societies. Even atheists.

"It is on the knowledge of Islam one gets literal-qualification!"

Right - after 20 years of studying Islam - you too can get qualified to turn out like this - or this , this or, if you really study hard - you can finally achieve such an incredible state of calmness and bliss , perception and insight as this guy.

"....No human power has the right to censor, pass opinions or judgments on "Islam".

Oh, you mean you'd like to muslims to take advantage of all systems and technology brought about the hard work and struggle of generations of Westerners - but somehow allow muslims to maintain a special magic ring around themselves so that they or any of their ridiculous beliefs can never be criticised? Apparently allah doesn't mind criticism of islam - there has been no opening of the heavens to stop it. The light of truth disperses the darkness of ignorance - but the dark tries to maintain its illusory power. In fact it has been left up to the forces of ignorance to try to force the peoples of the world, via the agency of the UN , to stop all criticism of islam.
