I have read the Koran and I for one believe there is a dark side to Islam.... Any religion that says it is tolerant and does the things Islam has done for the past 1400 years had better look up the definition of tolerance, because Islam was, and is a 'religion' of war and intolerance. How was Islam spread? I realize most people don't pay much attention to history, but perhaps they should. Islam was speard by wars of conquest. Regardless of what Moslem apologists say to assuage the feelings of people in the West, Mohammed did tell his followers to wage war on the infidels. We had best wake up to that fact and act accordingly.

Sharia and liberal democracy can not coexist and I for one would rather die fighting this evil than live under Sharia which is nothing more the the codified ramblings of a degenerate, immoral sheik that lived 1400 years ago... Not taking these people at the word, not confronting evil allows that evil to gain strength. We must abandon the politically correct nonsense and have the moral courage to make moral judgements. Islam treats women worse than I treat my pets and believes in slavery and waging war for god. All of this is evil so have the courage to call it what it is.

Someone made a comment about Hitler. If one examines Hitler's philosophical underpinnings it had very little to do with Christianity and a whole lot to do with a strange form of paganism and twisted mysticism. One may infer in fact that Hitler was on his way to building a new religion for his global empire, much the way Mohammed piggy-backed empire building on religion, which I think was the whole purpose of Islam.
