True Islam from Someone Who Knows

How can anyone believe that Islam is a religion of "peace"?!

... It is a catastrophe that it has somehow gained the title of religion and is treated as such by politically correct individuals. People of all faiths and beliefs ( or non beliefs) need to wake up and stand firm against the escalating danger of the jihad dictated by Mohammad's god to "believers". This ... 1400 year old belief system has the potential to destroy the planet by necessarily triggering unending wars . . . If it wont be amenable to a peaceful solution , then all means available SHOULD be used without hesitation including war, military,cultural and economic.

This movement is deadlier than anything we've ever known in history. Putting our heads in the sand and pretending that this movement is a "religion" that is peaceful or cultural or in fact spiritual is nothing but delusional and the worst form of denial. A quick look at headlines from around the world will prove to you that this is but the tip of the iceberg.

More is yet to come and it may well be from so called mainstream Muslims who some writers try to distinguish from radicals.

In fact, when it comes to the belief itself, there is absolutely no distinction between the "Islamist" or the everyday Moslem. The only difference is that the Islamist acts immediately on his belief, while the mainstream Muslim delays any action or rejects part of his religion and remains peaceful, or simply decides it's not a great idea to attack unbelievers wherever you find them!!!

Accordingly it is strongly suggested that everyone else wake up and deal with this before this jihad accomplishes its catastrophic goals!
