a charade!

in response to reader comment: Islam is not merely a reliligion

Couldn't agree more, Bob! I've been saying the same thing for years, but still our politicians allow these Islamic Fifth Columnists into our countries, totally ignorant of -- or wilfully turning a blind eye to -- their very transparent agenda.

Sometimes I despair of our pols. They are supposed to know better than the hoi-polloi, but they have proved time and time again to be totally unaware and uncaring of what's going on around them, uncomprehending of public opinion. One of the problems is that too many of them -- read most of them, if not all -- are self-serving career politicians, who, because of their inexperience, don't have a clue of what life is like for the people they vow to represent and protect.

Most are too busy feathering their own nests, as per the shameful, MPs' expenses scandal in the UK.

Meanwhile Europe's liberal immigration laws under the EU have been to the detriment of the UK and other European countries, and, like a cancer, has spread to the U.S.

The bottom line, of course, has been the fascination of various civilizations with religion, which, in the eyes of many, grants it an imprimatur of respect, when in reality religion is the epitome of puerile ignorance. I have said many times that Islam is an ideology, NOT a religion, and I will continue to espouse that contention.

Islam, as a religion, is a charade!
