Militant Islam??? Islam is Militant!!!

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by Al-Mansur (Malaysia), Nov 29, 2002 at 02:55

First of all bravo and best wishes to Daniel Pipes and Ali Sina who have been doing an excellent job.

As a non-white from a non-Western (i.e. Muslim) country, I am not obliged to be politically correct (i.e. you cannot condemn, criticise and joke about anything else except for Christianity, the Caucasian race and European culture) unlike many of my fellow visitors to this site. So let me make it loud and clear ..........

There is no such thing as "Militant Islam"! Islam is militant! You certainly do not use the term "White Caucasian" or "Yellow Chinese", do you?

Conclusive proof that Islam is Militant :
i) Its Teachings and Ideologies
(i.e. which other religion commands its believers to conquer, kill, rape, pillage until the whole world embraces that religion?)
ii) Its Track Record
(i.e. which other religion has gone on the offensive since the 6th century conquering Christians, Hindus, Jews, Zoroastrians etc. and now dominates 80% of the world news?)

I'm sorry to say that it is not a war on terrorism, nor a war on a terroristic version of Islam. It is a war against the ideology/teachings of Islam!!! (Although I don't share their religion) .......Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Franklin Graham, Jimmy Swaggart are right! Yes, there are tens of millions of Muslims who do not personally (at least) take part in the war against the infidels. That is because they are good people and their conscience tells them not to resort to violence. This means they choose to ignore or interpret differently the verses in the Quran advocating violence.

HOW DO WE FIGHT?

Say no to being "politically correct"!!! Expose Islam for what it is instead of condemning those who are not so politically correct in their statements. Christians distance themselves from Jerry Falwell etc. Do you see Muslims distancing themselves from the Islamic clerics who say killing infidels is okay?

The media plays an important part. Sadly, the Western media airs news about Palestinians etc. What about the infidels and apostates killed or persecuted by Muslims in Sudan, Iran, Egypt, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Kurdistan, Kashmir, Pakistan, Nigeria, southern Phillipines etc. The media is pretty silent, ain't it?

Take for example the Hundreds of Christians who were massacred in the riots in Nigeria and Indonesia. What does the Western media portray? Religious rioting!! This is deceptive as it appears as if both religious communities are fighting on equal footing when it is killing mainly from one side.

To fight, we have to 'fight' (I obviously don't mean it from the Islamic sense of the word) the politically correct media, and Islamic apologists such as Karen Armstrong, John Esposito and Prof Michael Sells. In this regard Ali Sina has been doing a fantastic (but thankless) job.

Why did America "lost" the Vietnam war?? Two reasons..... because :
i) the US soldiers in the Vietnam didn't even know who was the enemy (both the peasants and the Viet Cong wore balck pyjamas) ....well, sometimes the peasants were the Viet Cong.
ii) the US Media was the enemy within and stabbed them from the back. USA lost the war because of the media! That is how powerful the media is.

Until America and the West knows who they're up against..........
Submitting....
