We're Better Off Without Islam

Reader comment on item: UCLA's Embarrassment: Prof. Abou El Fadl

Submitted by Dave (United States), Jan 7, 2015 at 21:30

Good luck on trying to defeat Islamism. In my opinion, Islam itself is the problem, mainly because it demands the imposition of Sharia Law as a sacred duty. That dogma was probably invented as a way to justify and regulate the Arab conquests. Today, Islam has become a colossal nuisance since many Muslims still think they should rule with Sharia, but they no longer have an empire to impose it on, and Sharia itself has no intrinsic appeal beyond some Third World backwaters. Consequently, we have frustrated supremacists like El Fadl who just can't stand the eclipse of Sharia and Islamic rule, so they whine and name-call, and sometimes even kill people.
