"The Religion of Peace" - is this a sick joke?

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by J.A. Morris (United States), Sep 26, 2006 at 12:08

I confess, I knew absolutely nothing about Islam until 9/11. In the post 9/11 world, the garbled and convoluted messages flowing out of our moronic media and Muslim organizations reeked of propaganda. So 5 years later and after researching historical and modern Islam, it is clear beyond any reasonable doubt that absolutely no one has ever peacefully co-existed with Islam throughout its 1400 year history except in a slave-master relationship. In the modern world, Islam is intolerant, murderous and ruthlessly oppresses Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

When I'm reading about the beheading of Christian school girls in Indonesia, the murder of a nun in the Sudan, the Beslan jihad against Christian schoolchildren, the never ending killings of Jews and other daily atrocities performed by the religion of "peace" just practicing their religion, it becomes abundantly clear that Islam isn't even a religion in the convention sense. Most of us view religion as a deeply spiritual experience that connects us with God and enhances our humanity. What humanity exists in throat slittings and non-stop calls to murder in the name of a deity? Islam is really no more than a deadly ideology masquarading as a religion; like Nazism, anothe religion, Islam deserves no religious protections.

Ah, but the Islamic apologists never cease telling us that violence and murder are un-Islamic. Yet, Islam remains a "killer" religion so we need to directly confront Islam on it's record of savage and inhumane brutality. Christians, Jews, Hindu, Buddhists and other religions aren't suffused with a natural instinct to murder human life.

For Muslims to deny violence, jihad, dhimmitude and its intention to fully dominate the earth is tantamount to renouncing the Koran. It's just not going to happen. So as this myth of "peaceful" Islam perpetuates as a carefully orchestrated fraud, non-Muslims and especially us folks in the West will slowly submit to Islam.

We are signing our civilization's death warrant.
