I don't even believe you

Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: On the contrary !

Just once, read aloud how you sign each and every of your posts on your favorite forum, Mme Delcambre:

"L'islamisme c'est l'islam dans toute sa logique, dans toute sa rigueur. L'islamisme est présent dans l'islam comme le poussin dans l'oeuf, comme le fruit dans la fleur, comme l'arbre dans la graine. (R.P Henri Boulad, Jésuite.)
My translation:
Islamism is Islam in all its logic and exactness. Islamism is present within Islam like the chick within the egg, like the fruit within the flower, like the tree within the seed.

If the problem we face here in Europe is only that of defending democratic rights against a bunch of agitated extremists (leftists and Islamists), as most of our politicians would agree, btw, then people like Wilders and Père Samuel just need good lawyers and much talking about freedom (of speech) indeed.

But if our problem is the revival of the age-old ideology of hatred concentrated in that travesty of a holly book where Muslims are supposed to find the word of God, what we need is to break free from smooth talking, to get our hands dirty, and to tell the truth about that mess of a religion. In a strong, structured, winning way. Otherwise the most important people among us will just spend more and more time dealing with that hatred and we will descent into chaos, just like everywhere people are routinely chanting lah ilaha illallah. And that, just like that chanting, won't help anybody.
