The Imam wears no clothes

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by Izzy Palmer (United States), Sep 7, 2010 at 13:42

Americans, in their efforts to be fair and tolerent, do not see the Ground Zero Imam for what he really is. Nor do we see Islam for what it really is.

Ground Zero Imam speaks of and claims 'freedom of religion' and of 'tolerance' for Muslims in America. Yet he and his fellow Muslims will not extend the any measure of 'freedom of religion' or 'tolerance' to Jews and Christians (or even Muslim women) in any of the Islamic countries. Lets see now, exactly how many churches are there in Saudi Arabia? Are the numbers of churches growing in Iran, Egypt, Turkey, Libya, Pakistan, Syria?? In the last 100 years the Jewish and Christian communities have been decimated to near extinction. Today, in Lebanon and Syria the once proud Maronite Christian community is practically held hostage by the Islamist population. In Egypt, Coptic Christians are under siege in their own homes. By contrast, Mosques are prolifirating in the West.

Ground Zero Imam is quick to embrace 'religious freedom' and 'tolerance' for Muslim in the West but spits on non-Muslims everywhere in the Muslims world.

We must wake up to the fact that Islam is not like any other religion and that its followers are on a mission of world conquest.

Traditionaly, America has been a haven for religous refugees who could freely follow and practice their religion here without fear of persecution. Catholics, Jews, Mormons, Bahhis, and others came to America with the twin goal of becoming good Americans while practicing their faith. These religions thrive side-by-side in an open and free Ameica.

Not so with Islam. Muslims where ever they settle, will actively, by politics or by force, seek to impose Sharia. Without regard to the religious or political position of others. Unlike the other religions, which carefully seperate their religious, political, professional lives, Islam forcefully and brutally subjegates all within its sphere to the primitive savagery of Islam. Make no mistake about it. Islam IS NOT the religion of peace, tolorance, and freedom.

Islam is not interested in Muslims becoming 'Americans' or 'French' or 'German'. On the contrary, they demand that Americans , French, and Germans become Muslims. Islam is the Borg of Star Trak fame. The motto of Islam is 'resistance is futile'.

Question is, do you want to be The Borg? Or do you believe, as I do that RESISTANCE IS NOT FUTILE.

The Ground Zero Imam would like us to believe that he is cloaked in the mantle of tolerance, peace, religious freedom when in fact he is not. When it comes to tolerance and peace and freedom, the Imam stands stark naked.
