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

Submitted by people in england (United Kingdom), Dec 12, 2003 at 16:20

i am relieved to read some of the comments on this site. People in the usa have finallyseen what is happening in the world. They are right to stand up and fight for democracy and freedom, instead of letting the muslims (definition: those who follow islamism) strat to implement their islamic ideas into society. These people come to the usa, and then try to change the way it is run by complaining about things being "westernised" or "non-islamic". If you dont like it....leave! The situation is far worse in Europe, where we are ahead of the usa (for once!). Here muslims are greater in numbers and have started to threaten the way of life here. Europe has been accepting immigration for a number of years, but those who came (west-indians, indians, chinese) have at least tried to INTEGRATE into the british society, and attempted through sheer hard work to make a better life for themselves. It seems many muslims though just come here to take the handouts and then complain that "nothing is done for them".

Everyone gets a free education here, but the muslims complain that their girls should be taught separately, or schools should build prayer rooms for muslims etc. (all at tax-payers expense). This is britain, this is how it is, many new cultures have come here and integrated and prospered. Why should you come here and start trying to change things just to suit yourselves? Another thing.....how can you really trust muslims, when their holy book says its allright to kill non-believers, accepts that holy wars are ok, and generally asks present muslims to adhere to the religion and try to convert as many non-muslims as possible?

In england we regularly see young muslims wearing soccer shirts with the numbers 9/11 on the front and back of them. They are celebrating (yes, celebrating) what happened on 9/11. How can we possibly accept that? The best thing to do, is hit them where it hurts (in the pocket). boycott all muslim businesses. The usa is the ONLY country with the power to actually stop what is happening....if it isnt for the usa, by 2025 im sure islam will take over the world, and non-muslims would either be killed or converted by force (as happened to hindu's in india). The major wars in the world (bosnia, middle-east, kashmir) all involve one side vs muslims. trouble seems to follow them. Me...i just keep away from them as experience has shown that when push comes to shove, they will fall behind their religion, even over common sense.
