Dualistic deception

Reader comment on item: Canada's Muslims, Not of One Mind

Submitted by William East (United States), Nov 15, 2011 at 23:30

Muslim dominated societies do not practice a lasting tolerance for opposing religious or secular views. One would think that for any person, including all practicing Muslims, the freedom of self expression would hold a higher priority than the institution of a medieval system of required constraints but that is not the case. The Koran mandates intolerance and justifies the intolerance to the degree that the murder of a non-Muslim is not only justified and tolerated but expected and even applauded.

Islam is dualistic. One side proclaims tolerance while the other demands subjugation. The problem will always be that those who preach tolerance and practice peaceful lives will never effectively protest and stop the elimination of non-Muslims by Islam's destructive counterpart. The subjugating forces will always continue their oppressive and destructive efforts. Both behaviors are justified in the Koran.

Until "tolerant" Muslims stop their destructive counterparts, Islam will continue its well established historical pattern. Don't count on that happening anytime soon.
