in response to reader comment: Take a class about Orientalism

Dear Jenn,

Thank you, but I suspect I know far more about Islam than you ever will. I am not a minority for as long as people see the true fruits of Islam and people are, the ranks of fellow believers who see what Islam truly is will only increase.

Have you read the Quran completely? I have. Have you read the Bible completely? I have. Besides I am an avid reader not only with regards to religion and religious texts, but also politics, economics, and other important works. To say that I am closed minded is a statement made out of ignorance. I did not go to college and a very prestigious law school (more prestigious than UNC), obtaining a Juris Doctorate, to leave with a closed mind, BUT with a mind that can critically think and with a will to speak out against evil such as Islam.

An "open mind" for many is a mind that lacks the character to stand up for anything. Accepting diversity when an element of that diversity is tyrannical is foolish, evil and wicked.

I appreciate diversity, but not when a segment of that diversity puts Western civilization at grave risk. Islam and Western civilization are incompatible. Islam is hell bent on domination, both a a religious and political force, and the Quran supports said contention. A day is coming when Europe must purge itself of Islam or cease to exist as a free society. Eventually that day will come to the U.S. as well.

Examine your own mind Jenn, it appears that your mind is both blinded and closed to the truth. Learn this Jenn: Islam means "submission" and Islam is hell bent on bringing Islam upon the whole world with force if necessary. You with your "open mind" is just the type of "mind" that Islam is looking for, i.e. a mind that is gullible and foolishly naive.

Submitting....
