Somebody is always left out...

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Steven Malcolm Anderson (United States), Aug 1, 2002 at 16:42

I notice that in all these debates over whether Islam is "nice" or "not nice", somebody is always left out. It may well be that the Koran instructs Muslims to be nice to Jews and Christians, fellow monotheists, "Peoples of the Book", on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and weekends, and nasty to them only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. But, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, all atheists and all polytheists must either convert or else, be exterminated. Homosexuals, too. That is not an aberration, it is the official doctrine of Islam. A moderate Muslim is like a moderate Nazi, a moderate Communist. There have been a few such, but they are the exception, they don't make the rules. Islam _is_ the Enemy.
