Pat,

That was a valiant attempt to have honest communication w/Harrak. However, I can assure you, honest communication is not possible with him or other Islamists .. and for exactly the reasons you've noted .. and then some ...

Harrack is demonstrating the occluded thought process that is brought about by submission to Islam. Harrak is also practicing taqyia, which is most basically, lying in order to preserve Islam. He and others like him believe Islam is here to dominate other social systems. His is a totalitarian Islam. This is why he is so ridiculously condescending. This is not aberrant behavior within islam; it's normal. We are only seeing the effects of Islamic imperialism, once again and now in our lifetime, in the West. His buffoonery may come off as amusingly harmless .. but trust me, it's not any more funny or harmless than a stupid SS officer's would have been.

Instead of trying to engage with such arrogance and dishonesty, it probably would be better to take a nice walk and then come home and write letters to your Senator, Congressman, President etc. about your completely legitimate concerns. Our President, in particular, needs to know he has our backing in calling Islam what Islam is ... not what's it's not: a ... religion of peace.
