Hi, Michael,

Thanx for a very informative + inspiring post. I am open and I learn from you. I see better now the nature of Islam, the mindset of Muslims + the almost impossible practical distinction between "good and neutral or bad"Muslims. Reading you, I admit getting anxious about the many Muslims, radical and neutral, and the many superficial materialists and political correct fellow citizens surrounding us and thus about real pro-democratics ever getting a majority.

But still my aim for us is to develop, to train, but not in being anti-Islamic but in being pro-democratic. I am in it for the democratic system and the democratic nations (last count there were # 34 Western Dem.countries, incl. Israel + Japan). Humans are creatures of habit + many of us could perhaps train in knowledge, arguments + support of Democratic 5 pillars, tenets, values.

And here comes; with this habit we can beat the Muslims on CLARITY, PRECISION. And that's a start. They voluntarily let themselves be stuck with a Quran-Hadiths-Sira, and then TAFSIR, with their 4 schools of thought + all these clerical + Political leaders. And what have they got to show for it? Huge diversity and internecine war! Is that coming from a CLEAR message? Or a non-contested message? Even if they commit endless taqqiya; the fact that they need that, is that a sign of strength or of weakness? Would we pro-democratics resort to such vile tactics? No!

Under conditions like many of us knowing what we are FOR, which is a much better alternative to Islam, and commitment to habitual (daily or weekly) learning, educating, repeating and precisioning our own Democratic Ideology, which we strongly desire to survive and thrive, by quality upgrading constantly, we can so beat these Muslims, clinging as they do to a 1000-year-old immutable text (not counting the subsequent manmade tafsir), which prohibits quality upgrading!
