Why being Muslim pays

Reader comment on item: The Rushdie Rules, 25 Years Later
in response to reader comment: ISLAM cannot get better unless...

Christian teachings put the poor and humble in a moral superior position to the rich and powerful,and promise him a better life in the world after.What we have with Islam is the same teachings,the poor and humble shall have the better part in the afterlife,but it gives a twist to the notion of correct behaviour of a true believer. He becomes suddenly judge and executioner of the non-Muslims,putting him above all others,especially those superior to him intellectually and socially.

This is a change in the known religious expectations in the world after for those that behave in a moral way.Muslims can still keep their most immoral instincts and behavior on this earth,and still expect a great afterlife.A win-win situation for a Muslim.If you want to be a good Muslim all you have to do is make sure to be a good man amongst your own,and then you have absolutely free rein to do whatever you animal instincts drive you to do when you deal with " kuffar",the the unbelievers.This is the best selling point for turning Muslim,we see how thousands flock from our societies to join the Islamists in the search for the ultimate experience:do "bad" things and still get praises from Allah.

Who could beat this deal?
