Islam is a System, not a religion, & is dangerous

Reader comment on item: [Hasan Akbar and] Murder in the 101st Airborne

Submitted by Alex Cross (United States), Mar 31, 2003 at 15:01

This type of action by Akbar will not stop. It is part of the system of Islam. Islam is not just the outward visible manifestation of 'religion' (prayer, Haj, fasting), but the control by Shariah Law of judicial, educational, legislative, social, economic, militaristic, and social behaviors and norms, NONE of which can be separated out individually and looked at through western eyes and models.

We fail as Westerners when we try to interpret Islam in Judeo-Christian terms; it will NEVER fit. A Muslim's allegiance is to Islam and Islam alone, and Akbar acted on this. Islam supersedes ANY VOW OR OATH to any government, agency, etc (think military, America....) which is not under Shariah Law.

The media and military are either naive or ignorant of this fact, and MUST be educated about the 'true Islam'. This knowledge CANNOT be gained from imams or other Muslims, as the doctrine of lying will come into play, which allows and encourages Muslims to lie to defend the faith or Mohammed to kafer, unbelievers. Excellent articles are written on this by Silas and others on the Answering-Islam.org website. Not every Muslim is a terrorist, but every Muslim has the potential to become a terrorist based on the foundations of Islam and the teachings and example of Mohammed. I pray America and the West will soon be educated in the true teachings and motives of Islam.
