Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think
in response to reader comment: Muslim assertions vs. Muslim beliefs

Submitted by Kevin M (United States), Jun 29, 2006 at 18:09

Roland is absolutely correct. Of what use is objective truth when you live in a society where your voice can be your own demise? If Muslims in Muslim-ruled countries cannot voice dissent or speak the plain truth, the plain truth will never see the light of day.

Imagine the so-called "moderate" or "liberal" Muslims are like white people who know that racism is insanity. They all live in the American deep South in 1930. You think they want to speak up? They'll have the Klan on their porch by midnight. Until the threat of jihad and suicide murderers is removed from the Middle East, no free-thinking Muslim will risk his neck for a shot at objective truth. Anyone care to guess how many Saudis, Yemenis, Qataris, Bahrainis, Emiratis, or Kuwaitis are against bin Laden? Who among these groups is stupid enough to speak his mind?

The sad reality is that until everyone who refuses to bow down to Islamists is ready to wage TOTAL WAR against them, the fear of the bomber, assassin and 72-virgin-seeking fruitcake will prevent progress from happening.

Get ready for a looooooooooooooong war!
