I think you obfuscate more than I do

Reader comment on item: Why the Paris Massacre Will Have Limited Impact
in response to reader comment: Telling Islam is clear cut in its instructions is not complimentary- just telling the truth!!

Jaladhi, you wrote that "We" are not going to achieve "anything" by obfuscating the clear agenda of real Islam (I parafrase because I was unable to copy-paste).

Yours is the prevailing opinion on this clear agenda of Islam and it's huge immorality and on big antipathy for obfuscating and downplaying, relativating it. So much so that divers counterjihadists even disparage Daniel Pipes.

But what I propose is making matters more clear!

You see, Muslims and sickening Political Correct people, including Obama, Cameron, Rutte, they try to assure ONLY about what Islam is NOT, even when they use the catch-all frases like Islam is peaceful. They overwhelmingly tell us that Islam is NOT what it is accused of, used for by IS + radical Muslims.

Sometimes they do come up with "good tenets, values, texts of Islam. But not often, because they are very vulnerable to the Islam-critics, who make mincemeat of all such claims, like you can too. I KNOW THIS.

No, I say, let us humour this denial of "badness" by Muslims and yes, OUR MAJORITY, intelligentsia, OUR media and OUR politicians,

by giving them what they demand; legitimacy for their versions of Islam! While vehemently still denouncing the so-called radical Muslims and having NONE of this DRIVEL that Islamic State is NOT ISLAMIC, which is so preposterous!

The way to do it; Insult Muslims as much as you want on the ridiculously poor-on-clarity-state of QHS. and therefore it's interpretability for both good and bad,

in relation to manmade achievements in superior clarity of our own constitutions and laws. Satisfy you anti-Islamism in that way! Choose Democracy over Islam also on that ground!

And sugar-coat it to the majority by saying that "regrettably Islam is dangerously multi-interpretable". I see this as better than denigrating Islam as CLEARLY incredibly immoral. Because the majority does not get it and rejects it.

And a majority can make A difference. Your policies are useless without it.
