We Agree on the Threat – What to do

Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think

Submitted by Al Ginsburgh (United States), Jun 28, 2006 at 17:52

I have been reading various books on Islam; the most recent is" The Sword of the Prophet" by Serge Trifkovic. Most recently I have picked up Arberry's translation of The Koran. I have found nothing to recommend the religion on any basis. It is full of war, death and limitations of liberties. Even the Prophet adjusted his revelations to excuse his own improprieties. It is impossible to fathom why any thinking being would accept it except to save his life. It is not hard to understand why the Muslim world lost its way to the West when they cut out one half their brainpower by limiting women to the bed. And the Prophet had no faith in Western technology as well offering negative views of Music and Art. It seems that Allah frowns on achievements other than spreading the faith over the world by the sword.

The Australian leader had it right when he welcomed Muslims willing to come to his country if they accepted and would live by the Australian culture and laws and made no effort to change them. If they were unwilling to accept and swear to this, he would help them find a home elsewhere. I am sure I haven't the quote exactly but I would hope our leaders would do the same making it a legal requirement. Muslims don't understand the importance of freedom in Civilization and wealth development. They don't recognize that some negative things also come with it and must be continually guarded against including the willingness of some of them to damn the countries they have adopted and seek to overcome them.

This latest Pew study is scary in that they continue to penetrate our societies and demand changes to adapt them to their own failed ways. I don't think we should allow any adaptations to Muslim culture or laws as has been done in France and in parts of Canada. We must hold the line or we will be overcome as they take advantage of our own freedoms.
