To Mr. Harrak

I do not know whether you are a muslim or not…, but let me try to explain.

Islam is 1400 years old – not a new untried ideology. Islam has had resources at its disposal like no other ideology (time, land, wealth, population, power, weapons etc.) We have to judge a philosophy by its results and the time is now ripe to judge islam. Islam has proved itself to be a fascist totalitarian arab-imperialist ideology. Islam is incompatible with honesty, rationality and independent thinking.

Choice or obligation? First we have to analyse the word "voluntary". What does this word really mean? When can we say that a person did something really voluntarily?

So the crucial question is: Is a god who expects humans to become slaves or be called slaves a genuine acceptable noble-minded beneficial god? Why can god not learn to respect human beings, their dignity, their wishes etc.? Why is god so inefficient in his teachings, in his pedagogical abilities? Do not sink into piety complex. "I am so humble therefore I am so good" stuff. Ask tough questions – also of those who claim to speak in the name of a god.

Arthur Koestler wrote the famous book "The God that failed" denouncing communism. Have the other gods also not failed? We should write a new book "The GodS that failed". The Islamic god is the biggest failure to-date. Communism got only 70 difficult years (with nazism and capitalism as ultra-strong enemies) to prove its worth. What is islam's performance?

You ask: "Slave to god, to women, to men, to money, to fear?" Yes, I am all that – but nothing by choice. At least god should have the good sense and the decency to treat me honourably. About the others I am not complaining. "et tu Brute" as Julius Caesar uttered when his trusted friend Brutus stabbed him as the last of the killers.
