Muslims and burglars: an analogy

Reader comment on item: Piggybacking on Terror

Imagine, if you will, a group urging the government to pass an anti-crime law based on the premise that people should leave their doors unlocked as locked doors only serves to encourage more violent breaking and entering.

Sound familiar? It should. This is Islamic logic. For example: why are Islamic women forced to walk around covered from head to toe? Because showing any skin will only encourage men to rape them.

Which countries around the world have institutionalized the practice of racial and religious profiling?

Why, Muslim countries, of course.

Muslims in non-Mujslim countries are not demanding equality -- they are demanding privileges for themselves and themselves only. When they do not get exactly what they want, then they cry that they are being singled out and discriminated against.

What does "Islam" mean? Not "assimilation," that is for sure. It means "submission" and the examples cited above serve to reinforce that definition: Muslim leaders in the UK are demanding that non-Muslims submit to their wishes, "or else."

Here's a riddle: "How do you NOT offend a Muslim?" Answer: "Who cares!"

As history has shown, time and time again, Muslims do not need a reason or an excuse to become more radicalized or violent. All it takes is a mindset that blames everyone else for your own shortcomings. Viable societies cannot be built upon these premises as has been shown in Gaza.
