Reader comment on item: Too Many Mosques?

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Oct 4, 2007 at 19:08

Do we want the United States to resemble the Middle East?

Mosques in the U.S. are like little embassies; they represent Islam. So what is Islam? Stand back and view the globe. Where do vast numbers of followers of Islam live? What are their societies like? Is there extreme poverty? Is there extreme suppression of women? Is there slavery? 'Honor' killings? Lack of freedom of religion? Totalitarian dictators? Public executions? Public hangings? Children bringing honor to their families by strapping on suicide vests?

Islam might not be evil, but there is much, much evil within Islam. Undeniably.

So they bring their "little embassies" here to the U.S. What starts to happen? The evil permeating their homelands starts to emanate from within their Mosques. Here, in the U.S. Should this surprise us? Should we be shocked?

The Evil that swallowed up the Middle East is hungry again, and, not being satisfied with tasty tidbits like Indonesia, the Philippines, France and Great Britian, it has set it's sight on the main course, the U.S.A.

You can't integrate Islamic society into U.S.A. society. Look at Middle Eastern society. Look at U.S.A. society. It can't happen. One or the other has to bow out. Successful integration of Muslims in the U.S. seems to happen, more often than not, when they leave their religion behind. It's a gradual process, but that's what I've seen happening. Many Muslim-to-Christianity converts are of the opinion that you can't "modernize", or "reform" the Muslim religion or integrate Islam into the 21st century. They speak from personnal experience.

Look at the record of the Middle East. Look where their religion has led them. The more I learn, the more I'm of the opinion that Islam is not a just a religion, it's a religion that fosters hatred and evil in many forms; it contains a dictatorial nature that is diametrically opposed to the freedoms of the U.S.A.

Do we want the U.S. to look like the Middle East? No. Does the Middle East want the U.S. to look like the Middle East? Yes. Think about that. -JS
