muslims are merciful

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law

Submitted by PDM (United States), May 16, 2008 at 04:18

muslims have the perspective that they are being merciful to infidels by killing them. How can this be so, you might ask? Since islam teaches that infidels are defective and not allahs chosen people. [This is a great parallel, because Jews and Christians believe THEY are the chosen people - but, I've yet to see a Christian behead a muslim to advance that cause - ok, maybe in the 11th century - do I really need to explain this?

anyway, back to my original story. Since infidels are not in favor with allah, and the wrath of khan - oh sorry - allah is too horrific to contemplate, muslims will MERCIFULLY kill the infidel so that the poor bastard infidel doesn't have to face allah until after death - where allah will punish the infidel until eternity [again this sounds like Christianity - forever punishment].

Except with islam, the unbeliever NEVER has the chance to repent - the infidel is DOOMED forever. Hey, now I get it - perhaps, muslims believe infidels are martyred by the beheading, and then the infidel will get 72 virgins! Hey - muslim - over here - I'm an infidel! Be merciful to me! Really, It's like living in the twilight zone! do do dooo do, do do dooo do, do do dooo do. Sheeesh! Ok - maybe it IS the opium.
