in response to reader comment: How does the ordinary citizen fight Islam ? contd..

Impressive!!! saying that Islam is the only religion which mandates its followers to convert as many people as they can, and then saying that if 7million americans adopt the responsibility of converting one muslim into something else only then this war can be won?! Wow, suffering from short term memory loss? Confused? Maybe need to do a bit more reading, starting from your own writings...

See, this is the problem. While labeling others for seeing themselves superior to everyone else, you yourself from your ethnocentric point of view think that your values are superior and have to be adopted by everyone else. Isn't this kinda contradictory? There is no universal truth, everything that you see and believe in is constructed by you, by me, by all of us. In that sense, making a counter arguement from your own reality is totally plausible, but doing the opposite of what you are saying, now that is far from being rational. Education is the key!
