What I fail to understand, and those who are brainwashed into believing that killing themselves in the act of killing us infidels is a sure road to paradise, never seem to question. If those so called leaders, Osama Bin Liner et al, (not a spelling error) are in fact convinced that this is true, why are they not the first in the queue?

Surely the essence of good leadership is to lead by example. A good officer would never order his men to do something he himself would not do. Apart from which, do they not want to go to paradise themselves? It appears that the Koran can be interpreted any way that happens to suit them. If our society is as hateful to them as a good many of them seem to think, why bother killing us? Those innocents they kill cannot be converted. Simply go and live in a society more suitable to their creed. There are enough of them.

Shabina Begum for example, campaigning for her right to wear the Jihab at school (ably represented by none other than Cherie Blair) conveniently forgets, that under the Taliban in Afghanistan, she would as a female have been denied an education altogether. Yet we are pilloried for overthrowing them. It should be obvious to all, and especially what we have in what is laughingly called a government. That as I said before, any argument will suit, until they finally have what they want. a Caliphate in Britain. Since Jihad, in one interpretation is the working towards an Islamic society, and is a pillar of faith, it follows that from that standpoint there is no such thing as a moderate, peace loving Muslim.
