Bad analogy

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Submitted by Roger Williams (United States), Dec 5, 2006 at 23:09

Granted the brutal totalitarian garments of Nazism and Communism, however, this ideology seemed to occur during a short period of time and was then extinguished. I am not an historian, but it seems Islam has come in out of violence from the beginning of its history going back some 1400 years. Like a cancer, the violence recedes and then comes back in a stronger form with the same intent of engulfing the whole body of Mankind. The religious dogma (Koran, Sunnah, Sira) is the origin of the disease. It may be ignored by what you call "the moderate Muslim" but it certainly inspires the most depraved natures to levels of barbarity, glazed in layers of ignorance and arrogance. It has no basis of Divinity and the elements of its subjugation will only bring destruction and no creativity. Look in areas where it takes complete control of political entities. Do you see a process for creativity and an advancement of our human race?
