It's NOT a tiny minority of extremists

I am sick and tired of hearing that some "tiny minority of extremists" are the problem with Islam. Islam has NOT been hi-jacked by terrorists. Islam IS a terrorist ideology that has hi-jacked more than a billion souls... always was... always will be. The notion that the problem is evil people and not the ideology can be readily refuted by examining the Quran, the SIra, and the Hadith collections. By any measure, the apostle/messenger Mohammed was no saint. The Islamic scriptures command Jihad, a cult-like us-vs-them mentality vis a vis non-Muslims, and incite violence against all who do not follow Islam.

The violent response to the cartoons publication is indicative of the supremacist, millinarist, imperialist Islamic mindset. Islam promotes itself as the supreme law, so it considers the entire rest of humanity subject to its rules and punishments. Hence the fatwas against entire populations, and the authoritative pronouncements by clerics that victims of the 7/7 London bombing and other terrorist attacks were "guilty of disbelief."

Unless the West wants to endure an endless stream of bombings, murder and intimidation, it must stop Muslim immigration, and deport any naturalized Muslim citizen who breaks their oath of citizenship. I fail to see how any true Muslim believer could take the US Oath of Citizenship in good conscience. Any Muslim who does is by definition an apostate, subject to punishment under Islamic law. Allowing people whose only true allegience is to Islam to serve in sensitive government or military roles is tantamount to suicide.

Until the West wakes up and smells the coffee, it is only hurting itself by allowing its tolerance and freedoms to be exploited.
