Barbaric Activities not Exclusive to Islam-But Not Excluded Either

Reader comment on item: Islam Bulldozes the Past
in response to reader comment: Barbaric activities dosn't mean Islam

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Apr 4, 2015 at 15:14

For all of the rhetoric bandied about as to whether or not the proponents of Islam are purveyors of terroristic acts of discriminate destruction, the unfortunate evidence that quashes (the legal term) any argument of peaceful intentions is manifest for all to see. In concert to that, most all of the affirmations that give cries of satisfaction to the destruction occurs to the sound of allahu akhbar, unmistakably Islamist in its inception and execution.

One of the few exceptions to the voices of the Middle East calling for the destruction of all non-Muslim institutions is that of Egyptian al-Sisi, to whom major credit to this debate must be given. It is one of the few voices that lend to Dr. Pipes assertion that moderated Islam is the answer to terrorist Islamism. While this reader is still skeptical of a moderation of Islam that all of Islam should follow, the Quran is quite obvious in its exclamation of the Islamic Prophet's teachings.

As for the underlying causes that lead to this conclusion, Iran is still executing the plan started with the Islamic revolution, ending with the Iranian proclamation (and not ISIS/ISIL/IS's) of a world wide Ummah-caliphate. But the darker theme, still not openly discerned in the west's evident inability to deal with the religious extremism, runs concurrent with the terrorist's activities even as the mullah's mull the Islamists' apocalypse version on the world scene.

That being said, we must conclude that while many might think that Islam does not harbor ill will towards the non-Muslim world, actions speak louder than words.
