Being Pro Democracy in a habitual clear way rather than being only anti-Islam

Uncle Vladdi, awesome, you are far ahead, deep! I see it as a privilege getting this highly informative inspiring answer from you.

First my context; I think we can react beautifully + strongly + more & more united to Islam. After we study and know it well. That's where people like you are so (in)valuable.

In my vision more pro-democratic instead of only anti-Islamic. It reguires commitment with habits, time, energy to first formulate again well key democratic ideological tenets, then refining them.

In the repetition + refinement Islam can be beaten because Islam is unclear + stagnant by Muslim's own choice. We can do quality upgrading with our own ideology which they can't. Nowadays we also have superb technology to help us. Smart start-ups can even make "apps"!

That is why I emphasized some sort of assessment of Islam as unclear, vague, incomplete, obsolete, multi-interpretable. As opposed to giving Muslims the honour of having inherited and maintaining a CLEAR ideology. It is NOT clear by objective standards + this is shown by the diversity among interpretations + practices actually made by Muslims + their huge lack of knowledge + understanding of their own ideology. Plus their need of taqqiya.

Now to your comment: Wow; you nailed Islam in it's totality; Quran-Sirat-Hadiths, in sorts + then the 5 "Maddhab"s. This alone is invaluable; it means we now "own" real comprehensive understanding of Islam. And thus the contents of it's competition with our own Ideology.

You nailed Muslim's adherence to "Divine laws over manmade laws + to a worldwide Islamic governing system. You even enlightened me very much about our fellow non-Muslim leftist citizens. I too indeed am often enough annoyed with them + likening them sometimes to traitors.

You explained "the perfect cannot be improved upon"-mentality of Muslims. Surely that is a big weak spot of them, to be exploited. With a beautiful, strong reaction to Islam's rules, tenets in a pro-democratic way. And also a reaction of ridicule, like David Wood's on Answering Muslims, "Allah's poor communicating skills", exacerbated by, say, 1200 years of silence!

Thank you for giving us their perfidious texts that provide them with motivations they normally keep secret from us. We are not like that, I think, we need to have, then publicize + broadcast our own MIG texts. MIG as in Most Important Guiding Texts. To compete with theirs, as opposed to only be against theirs.

You show us where we contradict and breach their laws in the comprehensive body of Islam you described. We could aim to show them and as many as possible of our fellow-citizens where they contradict, breach, disobey and fight our comprehensive body of Democratic Ideology. Which you also already described by the way.

Thank you again.
