Islamsists, Get Out

Dear Mr. Pipes:

Of course most informed people know that there is not a huge gulf, if any at all, between so called Islamic Extremism and Islam. In fact I contend that Islam is the problem. It's fatalistic predeterminism where salvation (or damnation) is in the hands of Allah no matter what the believer does (forget the non-believers - they are toast - so states the Koran) is among one of the many problems with Islam. Islam is set against and is thus incompatible with individual freedom(s) upon which the foundations of the West are built. One of the great mistakes recently committed by certain Western leaders exemplified by Bush and Blair, is calling Islam a 'religion of peace'. Nothing could be further from the truth. Islam is an ideology of conquest and aggression that only hides temporarily within a guise of 'moderation' until such time as the conditions for conquest are ripe. When those conditions are right (namely Muslims have achieved a critical mass) it is duty of all true and faithful Muslims to migrate to Dar-al-Harb and seek to force all other members of society to switch allegiance to Allah.The key word is 'force'. Can you name me one Muslim dominant society where there is toleration? For women? For minorities? For freedom of the Press? For Jews? For christians, Hindus, etc? For unfettered education and publication and the pursuit of secular knowledge? For modern production and provision of consumer goods? Can you name just one? The reason you or I can't is Islam.

Islam is today the single greatest threat to the West. Today nearly 50% of all births in Brussels are Muslim. How ironic isn't it? The so-called capital of the new Europe - is this an adumbration for the rest of the continent?

Israel is forced to build a fence. What is our excuse? After all we have the Atlantic ocean.
