What do you Muslims want? Please answer us honestly, and no taqiyya!

Reader comment on item: Piggybacking on Terror

What is it that you Muslims want?

It looks like you, followers of Islam, are running out of excuses and fresh ideas; you can't deny that your war against us has commenced long before bin Laden, Khomeini or Kara Mustafa; long before our War on Terror and the intifadas, the Siege of Vienna or even the Crusades. Oh, I see: you're only following the Koranic instructions to the letter, and we can't blame you for being so… religious, can we. Let's see…

The late Houari Boumedienne (it was him, wasn't it?) predicted that "young Muslims will conquer the infidel world with the wombs of their (and our) women, by multiplying rapidly and outnumbering us…" So, Hadrat Muhammad was not the last prophet, after all…

Making a good use of our liberal laws, you have crept in, converted ignorant idiots to your crazy ideology, erected thousands of mosques while burning churches in Dar-ul Islam, slaughtered non-Muslims indiscriminately around the world, parked airplanes in buildings full of people, blown up schools full of children, raped, pillaged and burned your host countries, and then invariably played the victim card when asked uncomfortable questions.

We're genuinely sorry – we've never meant to offend you; after all, you're so noble and open-minded, so advanced and superior to us; yours is verily the religion of peace and your G-d is the wisest and most merciful of all known and unknown to humanity, deities. We know that when he commands you to slay us wherever you find us and you follow his orders, you're doing it out of devotion and, of course, for our own good. Please forgive us for treating you with such distrust and suspicion – we are only human. How can we make it up to you?

Ah, you want more rights and privileges; haven't you got enough? Don't you enjoy seats in European parliaments; don't you extort millions of dollars and Euros, undeservedly, from the governments of your host countries, under false pretences and/or under threat? Surprisingly, the more funds you get, the more "disenchanted" you become; you import foreign preachers of hate and provide them with luxury at the infidel taxpayers' expense – what else do you want?

Privileges, like deciding on our domestic and foreign policies, like being left alone and outside of the circle of suspects, when it's only too obvious that the culprits have come from within, and have been aided and abetted by, members of your community? Now you're saying "Muslims are afraid of possible backlash…" Good – when they aren't afraid, the rest of us are. What, "hunt terrorists, but leave Muslims alone"? What a sense of humor you have; sorry guys – your claims are rejected as being grossly unreasonable.

You want to practice Sharia law, allegedly "in family matters"? We know what that means – you'll be able to murder your daughters to "protect family honor" and practice taqiyya by providing false alibi on behalf of your family members involved in planning or carrying out terrorist attacks. We know – you call it "holy jihad", but we call it "terrorism". Apparently, we don't even speak the same language. Your claims are, therefore, dismissed as contrary to our national interests.

What; you want us all to covert to Islam and live the way you do? Hang on; you've come here as refugees, fleeing oppression and misery in your Islamic paradise; oppression and misery caused solely by – Islam; and now you have a cheek to say that you are "disenchanted" with our values and our way of life? "Islam is the answer", "Islam is the future", captions on your posters say, and "Islam or death!" This smells like the old slogan "Socialismo o muerte!" – remember what has become of the socialist-communist ideology? Please remember – and learn, if you can. Your requests are thus denied, your claims dismissed.
