Islam as a religion of peace?

Reader comment on item: [Freedom House report on] Saudi Venom in U.S. Mosques

Submitted by Concerned European (United States), Feb 7, 2005 at 04:46

Anyone who has been keeping up with the actions and attitudes of the Saudi government and the Muslim world in general, and still insists Islam is a religion of "peace" must no doubt be a candidate for a rubber room.

Islam appears to have but one major reason to exist. That is to spread hate, terror, and try to crush Christianity and Judaism. If it had not been for the Crusades, which has of late come under such unsubstantiated vitriol, it is likely all of Europe would have been gobbled up, as had much of the most ancient sites of Christianity. In that case, it is unfathomable our United States would have ever been created. That, it seems, is in the eyes of militant Muslims, a blunder they will do anything to rectify. Unless you have been living in L. A., New York, on a major university campus, or the moon, that translates into one simple maxim: they want you very, very dead.

While I concede there are Muslims who are people of goodwill as well as good sense, they, too, are on the hit list of predominant Islamic leaders and their followers. Unlike we good-hearted and often pudding-headed Americans, these peaceful Muslims know this. Do you really think if push comes to shove, they will sacrifice their lives for Christians or even Americans who claim to have no faith at all? Get real! They know all too well what happens to those who oppose jihad. One has to look no further than the headless widows and butchered children in Afghanistan for proof.

Americans in general are always ready to admit new immigrants to our shores as the inscription on the Statue of Liberty proclaims. To our sorrow, the rules have been changed. We must become aware we are not loved, in fact we are hated, by the envious and evil. In time of war our government has interred and/or deported people on far less evidence of intented harm than exists now. We are in a war. It is not a war about geographical territory alone. It is a war for the very soul of the world. We cannot afford to lose. May God have mercy on us.
