Reader comment on item: Militant Islam's New Strongholds

Submitted by Allen E. Wiesen (United States), Oct 22, 2002 at 12:07

This useful article illustrates the surge among even Muslim moderates to fulfill the Koranic requirement of eliminating secular government so that Sharia, Islamic law, will govern instead.

Few Americans and Europeans realize that this is not merely a goal of radical Muslims, but a quest of any serious Islamic scholar. In Islam. There is no Caeser to whom to render, but only Allah, as represented by the various Imams and Mullahs who govern the Islamic theocracy.

As such, Islam is antithetical to democracy.
