in response to reader comment: Poking fun about Muhammed?

Mohammad is not the first person to claim to be a prophet of his god or close to divinity. Roman Caesars and Russian Tzars would also add to your lists of Chinese Emperors and what nots. Well, that is not my immediate concern.

Muslims can bow down to a black stone in Arab 5 times a day or more is also not my concern. Muslims being intellectually retarded and uninclined to work as a progressive nation is also not really my concern. Muslims wishing to practice "muta marriages" (marrying a woman, have consensual sex, divorce the next day) in order to remain virtous is also not my concern.

My concern is the rise of Islamism. So many Islamists have openly declared their outright intention to seek world dominion. Don't get me wrong, you may think it is a far fetched dream that would not materialise. Many would have thought that way too about the Third Reich. Pol Pot's regime too wished to seek a fresh Khmer dominion. Whether their ambitions are regional or global, millions have died due to such ambitions. Now, Islamism is at the gate. Now, the muslims are getting bolder with their "cult of death".

Look at the current situation. If nothing forceful is being done, the world is converging to a global genocide yet again. The tensions between muslims and the free world are increasing. 1.2 billion muslims against 4.4 billion free people. What a world war to remember. My concern is whether my children will be alive to remember such "history". You may call this concern paranoid. I invite you to study the Pol Pot regime. I invite you to read about Hitler's dream of the Third Reich. These events happened during my father's time.

When I said forceful, what would I be recommending? Bomb Mecca flat? Evict muslims from the free world? Ban Islam? Well, these acts would spark the very genocide that I pray would never happen.

Thus, "Satire Out Islam". If newspapers in the free world could publish cartoons poking fun of Islam everyday, what do you think would happen? Will the muslims come out to the streets everyday? There will be violent protests - no doubt. Shops will be burnt, people will be killed. But, will their governments declare war? I don't think so. Will they ban trade? Yes, I think so. However, can they ban trade from ALL free world? I don't think so. Muslim countries are dependent on the technologies of the free world. They cannot afford to go without the free people's goods and services. Will they ban export of oil? That's a high possibility to force apologies. Can they stop exporting oil forever?

This is what I recommend.

Step One - become independent from muslim oil.

Step Two - Satire Islam out.

The muslims will definitely go to the streets and burn flags and effigies. Though they are not inclined to seek meaningful employment, they definitely cannot afford to riot everyday. The riots will soon die off. Many muslims will begin to leave their religion. Those who left silently long ago will begin to be more vocal, such as ex-muslims in Holland. Governments will soon lift the ban of oil export as they too need income. They too will soon begin to import goods from the free people. Internet porn is big business from Arabs.

The free world may suffer economically at first. Economic crisis could occur. But in the long run, another Great Depression or the 70s Oil Shock is definitely better than global genocide or religious wars.

Islamism can be defeated by using idelogical warfare. Satire is very powerful to shame those who harbor dreams of world dominion, racial supremacy, and those who believe in violent acts.
