Only one option in dealing with evil

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Although I usually find myself in agreement with your writing, I don't this time.

What you are advocating is the same as saying that if we had only defeated Hitler and his cadre, Naziism would have reformed itself into a respectable/acceptable political movement. Islam teaches that deceiving an infidel, which is defined as any non-Moslem, is perfectly permissable; even encouraged. The belief among all sects of "true believers" is that Islam must eventually conquer. And conquering by the sword is never discouraged.
