in response to reader comment: Ideology: Ideas; Moderate

I have a great tendency to agree with you.On the other hand what are our options? Islam was made profitable for the have nots, for it allows the murdering and stealing of others just because are of a different religion.That is a double edge sword that hangs over the neck of lots of people,not merely the kuffar.It is a known fact that in Muslim countries,and the Kuran mentions it,the rich Muslims make sure to keep hidden as much as possible their own riches for fear of being targeted.

Now we see that the rich Arab countries are getting uncomfortable with the advance of one type of Islam that would have no qualms about wiping them out.Until now,those same countries,gave big money to those that kept the danger away from their paradise,namely Islamists in search of ways to harm others, Israel and the West. As we are accustomed to a change of face of those that zigzag for their own interests,so we see those same countries trying to condemn the same ideology they have supported before.Islam is an ideology and a religion,all at once.An ideology,because has rules for reaching a political goal,while is also a religion,because uses Allah as the one all is done in his name.Here however we have a glitch.What the Muslims use as their model is not Allah,but Mohammed himself.And Mohammed zigzagged like crazy to get whatever he wanted.

The radical change that Muslims have to accept is in fact the inconsistencies between Allah and Mohammed.If in fact the Muslims take Mohammed as their role model,they fall into polytheism,but to use Allah as a role model,risks to get the show less exciting for a lot of Muslims.A lot of blood is going still to be shed,before the Islamic world will find,hopefully,a way to reconcile the divine with the profane.Until then...
