Discredit Islam to End Terrorism

Reader comment on item: CAIR's Assault on Paul Harvey

Submitted by John E. Matheny (United States), Jan 1, 2004 at 05:03

Organizations like CAIR need to be opposed vigorously. They need to be exposed for the lies they tell and shamed for their ignorance and lack of civility. Finally, I suggest ... they consider returning... to their countries of origin--since they are so deeply offended by the freedoms afforded in America.

Christian Mark Gabriel was raised a Muslim, memorized the Koran by age 12, and earned a PhD in Islamic studies. I think his comments are well worth reading. I recently ordered 50 copies of his book "Islam and the Jews", and I am giving copies to friends and acquaintances. Chapter 8 of his book is especially enlightening. The link below covers some of these same topics.

Islamism is the cause of terrorism, and the correct way to fight terrorism is to discredit Islamism. Islam was once seventh century Arabic culture, elevated to the status of a religion, and then spread throughout the world by violence.

Bookstores offer a plethora of titles that portray Islam as a peaceful religion. I suspect that militants are paying for writers to keep shelves well stocked with these books in order to keep Americans anaesthetized to the realities of Islam and terrorism.

When a scholar and former Muslim like Gabriel says that Islam is a religion of contradictions and violence, I think his comments are worth careful consideration. He points out that Jews and Arabs lived together peacefully before the appearance of Islam.

I am now reading "An End to Evil" by David Frum and Richard Perle. America, we have a huge problem. Wake up!
