Reply to Amitabh Tripathi on a compact of civilised cultures

Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by Swahili Dinaz (India), Sep 1, 2005 at 13:42

Unfortunately, the extreme secularists and leftists throughout the world, who are uncannily the greatest infidels of all, noisily occupy the centrestage as of now. They continue to shield the Islamist killers of innocents with the milk of human rights kindness. In doing so, they contribute to silencing the voice of modernity and pragmatism in the Muslim communities, which ought to occupy the middle ground, but has been pushed underground.

If the path to hell is paved with good intentions, these guilt-ridden headless bunglers among our own are in fact responsible for further beheadings and terrorist violence. Islamist sympathisers have cleverly used the 'leftist-secularist' combine to further their not-so-hidden agenda of Islamist intolerance. A fair amount of zakat funds must be involved in oiling this curious phenomenon. More active vigilance against these apologists of violent Islam -- more loyal than the king -- is called for, to expose their lies. Islamists are quite clever at speaking with forked tongues from the dawn of their violent ideology, to create this splitting in their adversaries, who are no match for their barbarism in the first place. Thus the very reasonableness, tolerance and self-censorship in the name of political correctness in the civilised world is misused by worst criminals and liars. In the end, however, when all reason has demonstrably failed, we will have to be well prepared to use the only language the hardcore Islamists and their sympathisers understand, to be able to convert them to more civilised beliefs.
