Reader comment on item: Al-Qaeda Invites Me to Join Its Ranks
in response to reader comment: Islam will never take over the world

Submitted by GetReal (Gibraltar), Apr 23, 2008 at 20:33

The western societies are so weakened by pacifism, feminism and homosexuality that I dont see how they can withstand Islam. The islamic movement comes at the right moment in history when the western world is spiritualy empty. The governments are trying to destroy any possible form of unity that exists in the society : the family, national feelings, christianity and in the vacuum created islam can easily be introduced as a replacement.This might be part of the islamic strategy well funded by arabic rich countries.

So what can you do against an ideology with so many believers when you have nothing that oposses it, nothing that can create a similar form of unity,Even if democracy and human rights are values worth fighting and dying for it seems that nobody has the courage and determination to fight for them. Everyone wants peace, rights and prosperity but they are not ready to stand up to defend themselves and these values.
