Trojan horse

Reader comment on item: Radical Islam as Its Own Antidote[, Argues Reuel Gerecht]

Submitted by praful bidway (United States), Jun 27, 2005 at 00:57

Reuel Gerecht's views and opinions is another trojan horse for islamic fundamentalism to spread to remaining secular freedom loving countries where respect for democratic institutions still exist.

There is no such thing as islamic fundamentalism's best cure is another islamic fundamentalism where people are tired of it and want to change it. Since when people are tired and change their religion? This is what exists in islamic countries today. It is not possible and people who want to reform islam get death threats.

islamic people flee from islamic countries to western/secular democratic countries seeking political asylum; after getting political asylum you would expect these people to actively seek/advocate/embrace democratic norms, but they do not. They in turn, seek to convert where they live as islamic ghettos seeking to incorporate what they left behind.

Judge islamic people by their actions, not their words. Their words are meaningless.

The koran as a book is oppposed to democratic institutions, including respect for the US Constitution which respects individual rights. Koran and islam are essentially a 'blame others" failed ideology like communism.
