Must we really be making excuses for Islam?

Reader comment on item: Islam vs. Islamism (article)
in response to reader comment: So what is the answer

Valin, There is an answer, but are we willing? The solution is not violence against Muslims or 'nuking Mecca' as you put it, for violence will beget even more retaliation from the Muslims. However it is neither by appeasing and making excuses for their religion, which is even worse because it proves to them that we are intimidated by their threats. The only thing that will work in the end is honesty, If we tell the Muslims, moderate correct otherwise, that the Sharia is not compatible with any western democracy, that the koran's language of hate towards all people is real, and proselytizing Islam in any western country is banned, ( this law is alreay in effect in Japan), immigration from Islamic countries should require a signed waiver by the Muslim of the rejection of the Sharia. Only when we ourselves realize that Islam is NOT here to harmonize with the rest of us, but has a definitive agenda of world domination (9:29) and we stop spending our precious resources trying to make them 'fit in', deport all radical Islamic elements, close down all mosques that preach hate, etc... There are numerous ways other than violence and appeasement that can help our cause in combating Islam's totalitarianism that poisons hearts and minds that delve into it's evil ideology.
