Islam is not just against Jews and Christians/westerners

Reader comment on item: The Jihadi Truck Attack in New York City
in response to reader comment: Form of Islam or component of Islam?

Submitted by Prashant, Nov 5, 2017 at 11:51

Dear Dr Pipes,

a lot of people whose introduction to Islamist violence is recent make the mistake of thinking that Islamists are merely anti-semitic and anti-western. In reality, Islam's intolerance is targeted toward all religions other than Islam itself. Christian bible is a corrupted word of God, Jews are bad for some unknown reasons, Hindus and other eastern religions are sinners because they attach symbols to God etc etc. For Muslims only thing kosher is Islam.

It is not Muslims' fault: Any philosophy that is as air-tight (unmodifiable) as Islam, will become like what Islam has become. Flexibility is the key that is missing in Islam.
