Islam In This World

Reader comment on item: Trouble in Londonistan
in response to reader comment: To ban Islam is the most natural way to go

Submitted by Shaun Moorcroft (United Kingdom), Oct 24, 2008 at 05:59

islam has no place in this world.

I ask (but I no doubt that anybody can give me a seriously straight answer): can anyone tell me about one act carried out by one muslim (acting through Islam) that would equate to a work of charity?

Can anyone tell me about any muslim (in the name of islam) or islamic group that has simply gone out of their way to the furtherence of mankind?

Can anyone tell me of any organisation or charity, that seeks to bring comfort to the hungry, the diseased, the displaced, that is islam based?

Can anyone tell me about any event which has brought about hope or peace or freedom whereby islam has been the driving force behind it?

Can anyone tell me what good deed has ever been carried out to the benefit of all mankind in the name of Allah or his so -called prophet?

Apart from beheadings, stonings, football stadium executions, suicide bombings, hijackings, threats of world-wide jihad and general ranting, demanding and constant claims to being 'offended' has there ever been any news story involving islam which is cheery, heart-lifting and encouraging?

So, what use is islam in this world? Answer: it serves no end other than it's own. Thus, the people of the world (non-muslim and muslim alike) need to wake up, open their eyes and stop this evil madness before it is too late. islam is not a race issue; it is an issue of ideals: it is a war of ideals - and know this for sure: we are at war.

(notes: a) I could not find it in me to capitalise islam and muslim despite my urge for proper grammar. b) I suspect that any muslims reading this are being offended; my answer to them is: grow up.)
