Telling Islam is clear cut in its instructions is not complimentary- just telling the truth!!

Reader comment on item: Why the Paris Massacre Will Have Limited Impact
in response to reader comment: Calling Islam clear is a compliment, calling it vague, multi-interpretable is the real insult

You say:>"It seems then, that the protestations of peacefulness, innocence, neutrality and beneficial effects of Islam are at best mis-interpretations or at worst deceitful lies. And that Islam must be seen as a CLEAR anti-Democratic Ideology. It is also aggressive, mighty and expanding. Therefore it is a grave threat. I almost 100 % agree with that!"<

My answer; Exactly, all this talk about Islam being peaceful is a lie spread by Muslims apologists and some Western "experts"!!

You say: >"And .... I put it to you that you are more complimentary to Islam than I am! You judge Islam to have high CLARITY, I give it no such status;"<

My answer: Telling the truth about Islam is complimentary - hmm.. Muslims don't think so and that is why they try to suppress it by threats and intimidation.

You say: >"How CAN Allah's instructions be clear, complete, comprehensive, updated, singularly interpretable? No! Islam is demonstrably ridiculously unclear IMO.",

My answer: This is total antithesis of Muslim understanding! Who knows Islam more, we or they? And we try to tell them we know more about Islam - how does that fit in any scenario of discussions about Islam with them?

You say: >"I am heart and soul PRO Democracy, for the whole century. But being Democratic I need the majority! And the majority of non-Muslims MAY accept the "Islam-is-vague" standpoint whereas this majority MAY NOT accept the the "Islam-is-clear+anti-democratic+grave threat"."<

My answer: We are democratic doesn't mean Muslims are. Democracy does not work in Islamic lands - show me where it working and if works there is a strong arm of theocratic subjugation behind it - Iran and Malaysia.

You say: >"Why? Because "Islam-is-vague" seems to give Muslims an honourable enough way out, something the majority seems hell-bent on giving them (because they by now know so many very nice "innocent" Muslims!)."<

My answer: Yup, is that what we are intersted in giving an " honrable way out" for the Muslims who live here with us and would not do anything to control the followers of true Islam. If they think there is a problem with Islam they should either reform it or leave it. They do neither and keep accusing us of Islamphbia whenever the "true" Muslims go on a rampage!! The very nice "innocent" Muslims are what they are inspite of Islam and not because they follow Islam!!

We are not going to achieve anything by obfuscating the real clear Islamic agenda by saying Islam is horribly unclear which only works to further Islamic agenda and taqiyya!!
