Islam is a clear and present danger to every other thought

Reader comment on item: Israeli Arabs: An Existential Danger to Israel

Submitted by Prashant (India), Oct 10, 2022 at 17:10

Dear Readers: These are my views and not Dr Pipes but I am putting 2 and 2 together. All the blame is mine and not of anyone else's.

Dr Pipes mentioned three existential risks to Israel: 1. certain Muslim nations 2. External Palestinians who are Muslims and 3. Internal Palestinians who are also Muslims. (the adjective 'muslim' was added by me).

If all existential risks are Muslims, can we admit that Islam is a risk to Israel?

I would even say that Islam -by its own confession- is an existential risk to every other religion and culture. Islamophobia is not a phobia. Islam is a clear and present danger.

Recently I have been observing the Islamic life in Hindu-majority but democratic India. I am becoming seriously concerned that Islam -having already stolen Pakistan and Bangladesh- is indeed an existential risk to India. In just two or three decades, if Islam does not change, India can become a hot-bed of Islamic terrorism, politics, and petulance (I will provide my reasons in a future message).

Religions are competing thoughts and are always in a state of an intellectual war with each other. So, at a certain level, all religions are existential threats to each other. This intellectual war is always going on and Islam is a participant. What makes Islam different is that Islam is CHEATING in this war OPENLY. The rest of the world has willingly allowed Islam to cheat.

While all nations are choosing to become democracies, Muslims are creating their own Muslim-only enclaves.

While all people are tolerant of inter-faith marriages, Muslims are stubborn about converting others for love.

While all people frown on conversion of one of their own to a different religion, Islam has apostacy laws and actually kills who leave the religion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_blasphemy_cases_in_Pakistan)

The list can go on and on. A typical Muslim on the street is not a threat but Islam as a whole is an existential threat to every other thought.
