muslims on thin ice

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Larry Bryan (United States), Sep 11, 2005 at 04:44

what happened after 9/11? we went into Afganistan and Iraq and took the ability of these nations to govern themselves away. We can do it again, and again, and again. Keep pushing our buttons, and we'll put you back in the stone age. If you are a religion of peace, then prove it. Put a leash on your radical bretheren, stop their idiotic rheoric, make talk of violence taboo. If you don't the world will eventually turn on you, and islam will disappear. Your religion may be the fastest growing in the world, but it's spreading through the poor and uneducated that don't have the faculties to understand their being duped.

The US will eventually move away from fossil fuels, due to soaring energy costs. The average american won't be able to afford fuel at the rate it is increasing. The economy is suffering, the environment is suffering, Western civilization is suffering. The shift to alternative fuels is coming, and it will be devastating to the middle east. Oil is your only resource. When the terrorists have no money, they won't be able to fund their activities. Their days are numbered, and they don't know it. The war on terror is not going to be won by tanks or bombs, it will be won with ethanol, natural gas, and hydrogen fuel cells.

Fifty years down the road, when oil isn't worth the barrel it's rotting in, I wonder if Islamic extremists will be too proud to accept foreign aid from infidel countries.

Islam does not have enough depth or history, to have longevity. When the money runs out, I expect it will revert to it's tribal cult origins, ...
Have a nice day, and God bless :)
