Traditional Islam not our friend

Reader comment on item: The Scandal of U.S.-Saudi Relations

Submitted by ROB BARQUERO (United States), Feb 6, 2003 at 17:42

Wahhabbi Islam was founded in Saudi Arabia in the late 1700's. This from of Islam is intolerant to its core, and much like the KKK of the US, this sect claims to follow God. God would never allow hatred to flourish anywhere. ... The fact of the matter is, since the 1970's Saudi Arabia has been spreading Wahhabbi Islam due to a huge influx of money form oil sales to primarily the west. The Saudi's collectively have declared war on us and use us for their own means.
We need as Westerners, Christians, Jews, Hindus... need to seek a new reality. We are progressive culturally, socially, and economically. Our only solution is to abandon Saudi Oil, and transfom our economies in to the dynamic engines that they once were, able to create new products and frameworks and transform our societies. We need to focus on creating new energy sources to include ethanol (grain fuels) and utilize solar energy. We have the climates to produce inexhaustible amounts of grains for this purpose, and this will certainly open up new economic ventures at all levels of our economies.
Finally, I recommend assisting China, India, Russia, Europe, the Philipines, and Sub Saharan Africa fight these awful incursions. We need to publicly contradict people who defend Islam as a peaceful religion in a professional and eloquent manner, that frankly, it is peaceful if you are muslim, but all others do not have this peace. Spain, France, Greece, Austria, Russia repelled imperialist Islamic quests and are now free, so it is possible to fight Islam and win! We too must do the same or face the fate our the Assyrians, Armenians, and Lebanese. If we lose Europe, South or East Asia, or even the Americas that would be too much. it will be the death of modern progressive democratic humanity. But worse of all it will be the end of monotheism, the belief in GOD.
Finally, remember that not all muslims hate us, probably half. One day we will need to interact, but not in such a one sided manner as we do today. A brotherhood can occur, but only after they as a cultural group have experienced a european style enlightenment. We need to promote this, because it is our shield and future.

dan: you can edit out the "probably half" w/o any problems from me.
