No hope. No redeeming value whatsover.
Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
Submitted by howlin (United States), Jan 17, 2006 at 14:38The Holy Roman Catholic Church, since its founding in 324 A.D., has had a sometimes turbulent and checkered history of force, plunder, and violence throughout the world. However, nothing in the Bible's New Testament, from which this religion has freely amended and altered in word and meaning, approaches or even suggests the viciousness and human degradation as that of Islam. "The Koran is the most stubborn enemy of civilization, liberty, and truth which the word has yet known." William Muir
Islam is a strange 1400 year tribal mixture of Arabian Desert warrior tales, hallucinations, blood, taxes, fable, folklore, and superstition, seasoned with adeptly altered Bible piracy and historical distortion. It's content professes dysfunctionality. It is actually a "how to" War Manifesto against human safety, freedom, and dignity. Its founder was primarily motivated by greed and hunger for money, stolen swag, and the constant marauding plunder to obtain them. He saw, desired, and took as he willed. Beheading, murder, lies, deception, rape, and hostage taking were his mantras. His devised "god" was one who encouraged these constant vicious and chilling actions. Customs and more sorcery came later when the "scholars" began compiling written "laws" and prophetic writings to govern the ignorant and those already subdued, some 200 years after his death. What kind of a religion causes people to think that terror, human mutilation, and murder is good? The founders raids on the innocent numbered some 700. The combatents always waged attacks on the unsuspecting, giving Muhammed 15% of the spoils of thugery. Those Mughazi [as in mugging] of Waquidis who succeeded in the best plunder were made "Jubes" = War Bosses and could also skim for themselves from the spoils.
Fast Forward to today and we have the historic evils all rigidly in place throughout the world with some varying choices as to individual dark pursuits. Any practitioner should be ashamed of Islam. With the added destructive ingredient of nuclear technology and a mindset that embraces war and death, throughout this culture of martyrdom and masquerading as a peaceful "religion", we are all now in grave peril. There is a monster in our midst, friends, that makes naziism pale by comparison.
However, to the Muslim, an entire world culture has developed and been built upon it's original and later precepts of many being controlled [by force] by a few mystical "prophets" who are actually a community of liars attempting to salvage illusions. Islam is a crime against all humanity. It cannot co-exist with civilized people. It is a terrible spreading disease.
The premise that this mind-set of "Double Speak" can be "reformed" or "rebuilt" seems totally ludicrous, absurd actually. It is a demon that must be looked squarely in the eye before it destroys most of mankind. We must soon become intolerant of it in our own communities before the planet is destroyed. What will you do?
The constant pressure and paranoia that the raw and primal rage of Islam places upon the patience and psyche of all people of good will pushes us all to rightous indignation.
Islam, sometimes referred to as "Muhammedism, Hagarism, or Allah's Path" is the status of being condemned and cursed with no freedom or choice. The damnation that is this way of a life of wretchedness should be abandoned. How long then, shall this man be a snare unto us?
"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke
