Abraham, you are so right. Muslims do not want the freedom that democracy affords, merely the means to elect their next kleptocratic tyrant and a forced revival of "pure" Islam, which will miraculously solve all their problems, at least the few that aren't directly caused by the West.

This has been proven in Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, and now Palestine. And let's not forget the democratic mullahs in Iran, who sit unelected on their thrones and allow the people to "elect" a president. They voted in a bonafide psycho last summer, the latest version of Hitler, but far deadlier due to the technolgical advances in modern weaponry.

.... I learned about Islamism over twenty years ago, not after 9-11. Islam's manifest destiny is to destroy all other religions and rule the world. If they have to massacre nine tenths of the world population to achieve their goal, they are ready, able and willing. I cannot believe the self-hating elites that rule the West have deliberately allowed these bellicose primitives to invade our countries, proliferate obscenely, and threaten the stability and security of the Western world. They refuse to assimilate because they have nothing but contempt for our culture and our people. They have invaded the West to exploit the economic opportunities that cannot exist in Islamic countries because of the retrograde, archaic, stultifying edicts of Islam, and to breed themselves into a position of power, at which time they will attempt to forcibly implement Islamic law and dhimmify the indigenous people. They are incapable of acknowledging the intrinsic limitations imposed by Islam, which make economic prosperity and cultural evolution impossible. When people are restrained from creativity, individuality, skeptical inquiry, free thought, and compelled to perform silly, meaningless, robotic rituals from daylight to dusk, little time is left for constructive endeavors. Islam is the most insidious form of mind control ever devised.

Europe is suffering the consequences of rampant Muslim immigration and if nothing changes, within twenty years several European countries will become Islamic states. Instead of curtailing Muslim immigration and deporting illegals, the Europeans are appeasing the millions of Muslims living on welfare at the expense of the taxpayers, and passing laws that make criticism of Islam or Muslims illegal and punishable by imprisonment.

What will it take for the multiculturalists, social engineers, and promoters of imposed utopianism to admit the folly of their failed social experiments and take steps to save the most advanced and enlightened civilization since the dawn of mankind? Or maybe they are advancing a planned agenda---the deliberate destruction of the West.
