No hope for peace with Islam

When we listen to "moderate" Muslims like Mansoor, how can Christians or Westerners ever hope to ever get along with Islam? We can never accept what they're selling, and they can never accept what we're selling. Simply two entirely different mindsets, both of whom believe theirs is the way.

Even if there were no Israel, Muslims would hate Jews because their prophet orders them to, so 1400 years later they hate Jews, whether they are American Jews, European Jews, or any other Jew they would meet on the streets of a Western country (since a Jew cannot live in an Islamic country). They are also to hate Christians...because their Koran tells them to. In fact, they are to wage Jihad on all "unbelievers" until the whole world is Islam.

Guys like Mansoor (and probably a very high percentage of Muslims) honestly and sincerely, I have no doubt, consider Islam a religion of peace. To us, that's not only a laughable stand to take, it's a downright scary one that they'd actually believe that Islam is peaceful - so diluted and warped are their minds from Islam. They actually believe that because Islam aspires to peace that it is, when in fact it's only peace among themselves and an eventual peace on Earth...when all of Earth is Islamic.

In the meantime, the rest of us suffer from their ideology and Muslims tell us they are a religion of peace while they spread hate and bigotry and terrorism all over the planet. Yet hundreds of millions of Muslims, and it's growing daily, belive it's their time in history to rid the Earth of what they see as a foul, decadent, mentally polluted Western ideology. They honestly belive this is the will of Allah - to wipe our way of life from the Earth. Believe it; I'm not paranoid - it's the truth.

There's no hope. The only way for the West to survive the surge and the mission of political Islam is to fight it tooth and nail, and to be brutal and merciless with it. I see a WWIII on the horizon when the time comes when the West is going to be pushed too far and realize there is only one way to survive islam: Destroy it. It will make WWs I and II look like walks in the park, but it will save our planet.

Fanatics will not reason or negotiate or compromise, and so the time will come (as more and more Muslims are becoming radicalized, and it will grow at an alarming rate) that we will have to take the gloves off and unleash our fury. It's sad it will come to this, but it will be necessary if we are to survive and prevail. History will tank us for it.
