If AMC is mainstream, what is Islam

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Chuck Twombly (United States), Jul 5, 2002 at 10:07

If the AMC is, "the most mainstream Muslim group in the United States.", what does that say about Islam as a whole?

We need to expose the myth of the "moderate" Muslim. All religions and cultures are not equal. Some are more dangerous than others.

It is the ultimate goal of Islam and all practicing Muslims to conquer the entire planet for Islam. If you don't mind being enslaved to Islamic law then this might not bother you. But I view it as at least as big a problem as the spread of communism was during the cold war.

I am strongly "anti-Communist" and I am also strongly "anti-Islamist". Am I still free enough in America to say this? Hmm, The fact that I'm even wondering is scary.

Do I hate Muslims? No.
Do I hate Islam? Yes, and there is a huge difference.

I don't want to hurt them, I want to convert them. In the market place of ideas.

If this had been Mohammed's teaching we wouldn't have the problem we have today.

Like it or not there is a real war going on, sadly only one side really knows it.
