in response to reader comment: Sharia: To err is human and to forgive divine.

Dear MsM,

You evidently defend Sharia Law as divine and clear-cut. Please translate your opinion into words for the modern world, so every Quffar can understand.

Do you condone the behaviour of the mentioned muslim to rape his wife?
And, since the answer to that must be yes, please elaborate on the role of the woman in the muslim world.

As you can see, any modern thinking human looks upon Islam with confusion, distrust, fear and disgust. Why do you think is it so?

The Muslim world is in a stagnation on every level and dimension conceivable - for a thousand years now.
Literally with the emergence of Islam, the decline in comparison to a free western world has begun. Without the oil - after all sheer luck and certainly no human achievement - Muslim nations would still hover around the status of a medieval western country. From art, to science, military to economy, the Muslims nations with Allah in the center of all behaviour and activities have become irrelevant. Without importing or appropriating at least some western technology or developments, likely muslim nations would not even exist anymore, many even supported by western help and support.
Why do you think does this dramatic decline coincide with the emergence of Islam?

Since Allah is so great and powerful, how come he allows his people to become this ostracised and despised? How come that the great religions of the planet allow for debate, discussion and dissent and thus reformation and evolution, while Islam remains strict, rigid, stagnating?

While all Religions of the world know periods of fanaticism, and many atrocities were commited by religious zealots, only Islam has managed to bring such into the 21st century. Why?

A vast majority of societies with various belief systems and religions is willing and legally obliged to welcome Muslims also into their own free societies which grant religious freedom, if Muslims would only abstain from violence, treat women as equals, stop preaching hatred and reform their dogmas to the extent which allows for peaceful co-habitation, cooperation and tolerance. Why is this not good enough for you?

Most of all, how do you justifiy converting me, if need be with terror, violence and oppression, to adopt your religion? How do you justify 50 years of worldwide misery and tragedy, terror in the name of God? Do you not see the terrible cognitive dissonance of screaming Allahu Akhbar, while literally sawing of the head of an innocent hostage or flying airplanes into a skyscraper? How can such possibly be a sign and testimony of honoring one's God?

Can you not see the tragic irony that, if the name Allah was replaced with Satan, all the acts and behaviour of Muslims would quite actually make terrible sense? If I was the Devil, the great seducer, bent on undermining peace and bringing utter chaos and destruction to this world, exactly this strategy I would employ. Terror, genocide, oppression, seduction, indoctrination, fanaticism, subversion.... all presently used by Islamists in the name of Allah with the mission to bring a Khalifiat to this world. The reign of Sheitan.

Submitting....
