Reader comment on item: [The Hamas Electoral Victory:] Democracy's Bitter Fruit

Submitted by Paul Rinderle (United States), Jan 27, 2006 at 13:32


I take exception to the paragraph below:

"It's not Islam or some cultural factor that accounts for this difference; rather, it is the fact that ideological enemies in the Middle East have not yet been defeated. Democratization took place in Germany, Japan, and the Soviet Union after their populations had endured the totalitarian crucible. By 1945 and 1991, they recognized what disasters fascism and communism had brought them, and were primed to try a different path."

Islamism, Communism and Fascism are of one type, knotted together by similar ideology and written covenants i.e. the Koran, Mien Kampf and the Communist Manifesto of Karl Marx.

Those who failed to read and react, to these documents of guidance for their adherents, suffered death. We now are in the throes of ever heightened Muslim wars everywhere their are Muslims.

What do we do, and its short term solution I agree with your concluding paragraph of points but add ONE more

We must encourage Muslims to leave this CULT in order permit freedom not only to others but also themselves.

The violent passages of the Koran, Hadith,Sira and Sharia leave no breathing room or hope for reform of Islam ever.

Thanks for your mission to peace.
