Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?

Submitted by DONVAN (United States), Feb 7, 2006 at 17:10

Why,exactly, is it a .."Tragic mistake " to lump all Mohammedians (Muslims) with the forces of darkness?? Are not all Mohammedians avid devotees of the koran, a "Blueprint for armed aggression"? Do not all Mohammedians preserve defend and protect the institution of jihad?

Those Muslims who reject the koran, jihad, Shri'ia, are not Mohammedian. I do not know what a "Muslim" is. The definition changes to suit the circumstances. The "Peaceful religion" mantra has become a bigger laugh than the Danes' cartoon. Academics can and do parse and discuss, and rationalize. Well rationalize this: the west is rapidly becoming dhimmitized.

This much noise concerning a cartoon will chill and eventually end all Mohammedian imagery. The cost is too high, the politics too risky,the outrage too manic. The deconstruction of islam is the only approach. Academia can do this...
Perhaps the 20 million at Georgetown and Harvard trumps freedom of speech.
