Islamic duplicity: the good and bad cops behave as if they have never met each other.

Dear Dr Pipes,
Reader Dave's last sentence in his message ("Let's keep Turkey in NATO. Maybe some day it will join the Abraham accords, though Hell may freeze over first.") led to the chain of thoughts that I am presenting here. Islam has been a deep amalgamation of religion and politics throughout its history. It has also been an imperialistic and expansionist force. The safest form of engagement with Islam is to defend us forcefully against them if/when they attack us violently. Otherwise, we should have as little participation in various fratricidal Islamic wars as possible. Even societal engagements with Muslims (like immigration from/to Islamic countries) is fraught with dangers. When non-Muslims visit Islamic countries, they have little or no human rights vis-à-vis their religions. For example, it is difficult or impossible for non-Muslims to become citizens of Islamic nations even after living there for decades. When Muslims come to non-Muslim societies, the discourse soon changes to more and more rights for Muslims in the host societies at the expense of the host societies. Constant demands for diversity, exclusive prayer times and zones etc. are examples of the latter. The world fails to notice the stark contrast between the Islamic behavior inside and outside of Muslim societies.

Today's Islam survives and thrives due to the Islamic duplicity. Muslims have carried the "good-cop-bad-cop" strategy to the global stage. The Muslim "good cops" go around the world advertising how modern Islam is. They absurdly say that Islam is compatible with democracy because so many Muslims live so comfortably in so many democratic societies and countries. They constantly apologize for Islam with straight face. Citing just one of the thousands of possible examples, they present Muhammad's first wife Khadija as a business woman par none while ignoring the obvious contradiction that she was not a Muslim when she became the businesswoman that she is described to be. These apologists constantly lie about Islam to present it in the best possible light. Islamic bad cops impose medieval qur'anic dictums anywhere and everywhere they can. They shoot innocent people in places like Kashmir, (the so called) Palestine, and in the streets and villages of countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan (the readers are reminded to research the case of the Indian woman murdered in Afghanistan (ref1). Sushmita Banerjee was like an idealistic fool until she was murdered.). The Islamic good and bad cops behave as if they have never heard of each other!

In our world Islam survives and thrives due to the persistent Islamic duplicity. So, yes, Turkey can remain a part of NATO as long as 1) we never have to go to war on Turkey's behalf and 2) we keep highlighting the duplicitous Islamic behavior. We should expect very little good to come out of it.
