What about the Nation of Islam, TO AHMED

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: The True, Peaceful Face Of Islam by Karen Armstrong

The Nation of Islam in the United States, started by immigrated Muslims, and the first form of Islam in the United States, blatantly states that white men are the devil. The NOI says there is a blond haired blue eyed devil. This idea did not come out of thin air.

We all know that most of Islam does not, however, follow racism. But we can attest to a majority of Muslims following a "religionism", despising everything that isn't Muslim. Even on this forum, most comments by Muslims attest to the superiority of the Qur'an without question, and with blind submission. Everything un-Islamic is evil. This is worse than racism, because it puts God as the inspiration for war and hatred. It also affects many more people.

Now you might say that every Muslim does not espouse a certain hatred for Christians or pagans or anyone else. But, in the back of your mind you are smiling for every desecration of every other infidel. Why does Saudi Arabia prohibit any Christianity? Many other theocratic nations are similar--nations based on the ultimate truth of the Qur'an.

The Muslims are the only ones so belligerent when it comes to religion, and it is not because they are more pious, it is because they are cultivated that way through the Qur'an and hadith. Muslims, moreso than any other culture, are so obstinately against any other belief system, that it is far more dangerous than any kind of racism
