Here are a few off the top of my head

Reader comment on item: Israel and Clear Victory
in response to reader comment: lets start and list your problems

Submitted by Don (Peru), Jan 25, 2009 at 19:14

1. Over 12,000 recorded terrorist attacks just since 2000 in the name of Islam or committed by Muslims from Thailand to the Philippines to Spain to the Uk to the United States to Russia to India to Kenya and every point in between. That´s about 11,990 more than all the other religions combined.

2. No free will or choice of religion for individuals born into Islamic lands or to Muslim parents.

3. An "apostate" if you choose to leave a religion (Islam) forced upon you, and the Koran sanctions an apostates death. No other religion attempts to force a person to remain in it, besides be born in it without a choice. (Christians may be raised in a Christian home to Christian parents, but make a choice to become Christian themselves, if they choose, later when they are old enough to read the New Testament and make sound choices on their own.)

4. Men relegate women to lower staus, allowing men to marry up to four wives, yet allowing a woman only one husband; a female rape victim needs four male Muslim witnesses; the Koran states a daughter is to get half of what a son would get in inheretance, etc. Koran sanctions beating a wife. Christianity and Judaism allows for reform on matters obviously from ancient times, but the Koran cannot and never will.

5. No criticism allowed of the prophet of Islam or Islam itself. If you think you can, write a column to your newspaper doing so and give your name and address.

6. Islam´s prophet was a war lord with blood on his hands who sanctioned to deaths/murder of untold numbers.

7. The prophet of Islam and the Koran encourage the hatred of Jews, Hindis (polythiests) and to not befriend Christians.

8. The concept of Jihad, which is today the cancer of the planet and a threat to all humanity.

9. "Fatwas" put on the heads of people who criticize or question Islam; people like Geert Wilkders, Hershi Ali, S. Rushdie, The Dutch cartoonists, and untold number of others whose lives are ruined now because of Muslims who believe t}killing people who insult Islam or its prophet will gain them paradise.

10. The concept of "the ummah," where Muslims are always supported and backed no matter how wrong and evil their deds, which is why you see Muslims protesting like raging maniacs at cartoons, yet not a peep about Breslin or Mumbai, and even cheering in the streets when 3000 innocent civilian Americans die at Muslim hands.

11. Muslisms all over the world in the last month going into the streets either praising Hitler or berating him for not finishing the job, calling for the seaths of Jews openly - and not just Israeli Jews, but Jews period - and publicly without recrimmination from anyone in the Arab press, because Mohammed himself called for the deaths of Jews.

12. Over 200 verses in the Koran calling for Jihad and fighting the "infidels" and "kufrs" and "unbelievers" until Islam is supreme over all, which if followed (which it is by millions of Muslims) means perpetual war in the world until everyone is a Muslim or serving Muslims as dhimmis.

13. The belief by Muslims that God Himself would choose as a prophet a man of war, a raider of caravans (thief and robber), a killer of innocents, a peadophile who actually married a six year old little girl and had sex with her when she was nine, a bigot full of hatred for all who questioned hhim or did not follow him, and demanded his followers also hate, and a dozen other wonderful little tidbits about Mohammed - that over a billion Muslims actually believe a man like this would be chosen by God as an example of manhood and to be a prophet. (Or do most Muslims know God is loving and intelligent enough to know what major and very serious problems a Mohammed brings into the world but are too afraid to say so for fear opf losing their lives?

14. Islam is hated by the masses because it deserves to be hated by the masses because of its violence, bigotry, hatred, and oppression (just to name a few things). It is the cancer of the Earth and a threat to all nonMuslims in the world. Read the news....daily.

15. Islam is political and not separate from an Islamic country´s policy, which presents a myriad of problems as we see today (and throughout history). There is only one "Christian" country: The Vatican, the smallest country in the world, where The Pope resides. And it is non-political. Jesus set the principal (because He KNEW what was best) of separating religion from government.

16. I could go on if you wish me to continue later about my "problem with Islam." Mostly the same things the rest of the Western world and most of the Eastern world consider problems with Islam.
