Muslims vs Fear?

in response to reader comment: Mission from God Fear?

It is interesting that the use of Muslims and Fear are so easily used in the same sentence. If I thought Muslims could be engaged in dialogue then perhaps there would be something to be gained but when there is no tolerance by Muslims in a Koranic nation why should one think that there was hope of anything better outside its borders. Clearly, there is an ingrained intolerance in Islam for any other religion or form of government save Sharia law, a most barbaric Satan to sit beside the throne of Islam.

All of the people who think that Islam is not violent in nature need to give their heads a shake. When all the most prestigious people in Islam are preaching hatred for all else, along with a whole country, tell me that we should engage in dialogue. Islam needs to clean up its act and get with the 21st century, no the 20th century even, before it can be taken seriously as a non-violent institution.

If Islam wants to share in the prosperity of democratic countries then it needs to become more tolerant of the freedoms of Democracy. When Islamist want to take away freedoms from democratic peoples there is going to be conflict - Duh! If Muslims find that they cannot come to terms with living in a democratic country they should leave rather than try to impose their brand of democracy on their hosts!!! Didn't anyone ever tell them not to bite the hand that feeds them eh! Ahmed!!!
