in response to reader comment: the real conspiracy

I too am sick of the left wing media and even President Bush telling us Islam is a peaceful and tolerant religion. What history books are they reading? It must be alternate history of the type written by Harry Turtledove, because it certainly has nothing to do with this world. I majored in history back when universities were actually seeking the truth and not some PC let's everybody feel good nonsense.

... Kemal Ataturk, founder of modern Turkey saw the problem, and I quote, "Cruel and criminal laws in Turkey have been fixed for more than five hundred years on the rules and theories of a old Arab sheik, and through the abusive interpretation of ignorant filthy priests... Islam, this absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, is a rotting corpse which poisons our lives." (quoted from Jihad by Paul Fregosi page 408)

Well now the rotting corpse is poisoning the whole of the world and I for one think the world should defend itself aggressively. If the Islamist want a war, give it to them! The whole world should unite, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Shintos, Pagans, secular lovers of liberty and anyone else who feels Islam is a threat.

The world would be a better place without Islam as long as they wish to dominate others , other have a natural right ot defend themselves by any means necessary. Let Islam set the rules for the conflict and do unto them as they do unto others! Having studied Islam, its history and its teachings, the life of its founder, I see nothing particularly good or religious in it. In fact I find it anti-religious and anti-life... Islam should not be allowed in the west as Islam seeks to undermine and destroy Western Civilization. I care nothing for all the talk about moderate Muslems. Where are they? When if ever do they condemn all this violence against innocent poeple?

As a moral person and a Christian I hate evil. It is the duty of every moral person to confront and oppose evil. I will not mince words and I will not retreat from my position. Islam ...believes violence in the name of God is right, it believes in slavery and genocide and it subjugates half of humanity into virtual slavery. That is evil. To do evil in the name of God is the most evil anyone can do... and until people start confronting this we are lost. I truly hope the moderator allows this post through unedited. I am truly unconcerned about offending Muslems feelings. Lets talk about three thousand Americans buried under rubble in New York on 9-11, or people slaughtered in Madrid and London. Let's talk about Hindus slaughtered in Kashmir this very day. Let's address the ongoing genocide in the Sudan or let us even disuss the rights of women unfortunate enough to be born under Islam's baleful rule. Let us address these issues before we start worrying about offending people's feelings. The Islamic world was more upset by a few Danish cartoons than killing thousands. I can care less about Muslems feelings. We are in a world war with them and they have proved to be as ruthless as the Nazis. For the sake of civilization it is a war we can not afford to lose.
