Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism
in response to reader comment: Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by donvan (United States), Jan 23, 2008 at 15:09

The meaning of "Islam" is to "Surrender", " Mu'slam is one who has surrendered" or "Muslim". The notion of "Surrender" to a deity which is remote and nonpersonal leads to "Surrender" as a psycological manipulation to whomever claims to speaks for the deity. The Egyptian Imam advocating wife beating, or justifing hate toward Jewish persons, or murder/suicide "Operations" , or spewing the normal hate which is an integral pary of the mythology of the "Mu'slam"s . The "Mu'slam" presume to speak for the deity. "He has no son", " He hates Jews", " He approves of the enslavement of women", blah blah blah. "Mu'slamia", the totality of the mythology of the Mu'slam's, is a failed mythology.
