Caution of electing Muslims in democratic governments

Reader comment on item: Lawful Islamism on the Ascent in Majority-Muslim Countries

Submitted by Lowell (United States), Sep 25, 2006 at 07:38

Electing [a] Muslim in a free democratic government is only opening the door to shari'a laws to be imposed on all free peoples. The below should support my convictions.

Every Muslim I met in college would get very angry when discussing the written history of Mohammad ... If it were not for Muslims being afraid to go to jail for their violence, I would probably have been killed years ago.

In my recourse with Muslims, I would bring up the paedophilia of Mohammad and A'isha, the beheading of 900 Jews after the battle of Badr, Mohammad's excess of wives and his restricting all other Muslim males to "only" 4 wives, his against prostitution but allowed to have "temporary wives" for Muslim males during war or long periods away from home, as well as many other situations, such as; contradictions in the Qur'an, the ahadith, etc.

It got to the point that Muslims didn't want to even try to convert me into Islam, much less engage in discussion about Islam and Mohammad.

I attribute campus police, local authorities, expullision from college and the like, is what kept me from being seriously injured or killed. This was back in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Today, I feel certain injury would occur should I get involved with Muslims by myself as I did then.

Thanks for reading.
