Islam its the sea in which Islamists swim

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims

Submitted by Anthony A (United States), Dec 12, 2015 at 09:32

One can see why this idea attracts Mr Pipes. But the problem with Islam is not just Islamism, for this nothing but the natural outgrowth of Islam. Allow large numbers of non-Islamist Muslims into the country, and the religion would just, all by itself, produce more Islamists from amongst the supposedly moderate communities imported. Islam itself is the problem,, not just Islamists.
