Islam and the message

Reader comment on item: Once considered anti-Islam, senior scholar says he's now in the middle

Islam has three serious problems as it is a proseltizing religion, and it is also a political system, and that islamic theology is based on polemics, which means that it invites close scrutiny and examination of its political and religious messages. and the end result is not very pretty and muslims still do not get it

The good news here is proselitizing religions rise and then they split and then fight the whole world and then they disappear and good riddance but the bad news is it takes lots of work to expose a horrible human idea that is no more than a political ideology with a thin patina of religion and there really is nothing spritual about islam not a thing

Hinduism and Judaism will always be there as they are ethnic religions and are not out to change political systems of to convert the unbelievers and they do not claim that they found the only truth as islam does

Buddhism? It is really more of a way of life than a religion and this is why it will always be there

It makes me wonder how come we here in the US will have no difficulty with a Hindu or Buddhist temple located at the site of the ground zero mosque? Islam? it is a different story

Now back to the fault lines of islam and they are: Islam is not just a religion which is based on polemics as it is also a political system as in Islam deen wa dawla (Islam is religion and state) and there is no separation of one from the other. And i do not see anything wrong in going after bad political idealogy as in going after communism (which also happens to be not just a political system but can be regarded as a religion just like Islam). We infidles must expose that the likes of al-shari3a and dhimmism and the anti-women and anti-non Muslim nonsense that comes with islam and all we are doing is we are telling Muslims what their books say and if they do not like it then they can change their books or get rid of them as you shall see below but in typical Islamic fashion "blame the messenger" and call it islamophobia

As for anti-Islam bloggers and those that spread their message on the internet I cannot think of any one better than Father Zakaria Botros who is a Coptic priest and whose command of Arabic is great and he can read their Islamic sources in Arabic and tell Muslims what these sources say and at times it is really ridiculous as in the case of the breast feeding of the adult tradition or that drinking of the urine of camels and of Muhammad can cure disease. The strange thing is he is very popular in the Arab world and he is not liked by many Muslims and even al-Qa3ida is willing to pay 60M dollars for anyone that would kill him. But can he be refuted? No Muslim so far has been able to refute what he is saying and he also says the same and I'm paraphrasing here: I'm only telling you what your books are saying and if you do not like it then get rid of them (their books)

Muslims had the chance after the 9/11 atrocity to check their holy books and find those doctrines that were responsible for such atrocity and declare them as unislamic as those Islamic terrorists were not acting on their own as their actions must have been insipred by doctrines in Islam. So what did we get from Muslims and even our leaders: Islam is the religion of peace and those terrorists were not acting in the name of Islam. This meant that it becomes our duty to find out how did such atrocity happen and how is it linked to Islam and Muslims just do not like it and our foolish leaders still repeat the same nonsense that islam is the religion of peace

And while we are at it Muslims from Paksitan and India that cannot speak read or write Arabic must stop this nonsense that the word jihad does not mean holy war and that the word islam means peace

Oh the vicitms of islam? It is women and non Muslims and great civilizations that were destroyed by islam but the most significant victims are the non Muslim Arabs like the Pakistanis and Indian Muslims that do not know any Arabic and are regarded by the Arabs as never equal to the Arabs and still they are out to spread the religion of the Arabs and their imperialism and this is really sad

Islam must be exposed for what it is ...
