Apathy is a dangerous game!

Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam

Submitted by Nick4693 (Japan), Apr 2, 2007 at 20:50

Like the proverbial ostrich, burying one's head in the sand won't make the threat of Islam go away, and it is a distinct and real threat, make no mistake about it! Apathy is a dangerous game to play!

Many I'm sure will say that moderate Muslims BY far surpass the number of radicals, so we have no reason to fear, but that only proves how ignorant most people are concerning the contents of the Koran, which ALL Muslims must obey, like it or not, even today, 1,400 years after this evil book was written. There is no difference between moderates and radicals; they simply play different roles.

Moderate Muslims are simply preparing the way for the inevitable -- the takeover of the West AT THE POLLS -- by lulling us all into a false sense of security. Meanwhile, terrorism continues unabated!

Has anyone wondered why "moderate" Islamic organizations such as CAIR and Free Muslims Coalition only offer watered-down condemnations of Islamic acts of terror? That is their role and they play it to the hilt. They "condemn," but even a child can see through their insincerity. Both groups support the radicals (such as soliciting funds for overseas terrorists), yet both are privy to the White House, which has permitted the construction of mosques all over America, while not one single church is permitted to be built in, for instance, Saudi Arabia. Worse, the Saudis provide the very funds to build these mosques, most of which openly preach hatred and mayhem for the West. Whatever happened to the old political game of "quid pro quo?" Hasn't this situation raised any eyebrows? How naive can our leaders be!

In other words, while the enemy refuses to entertain us, we have naively invited him to dinner, after which he will stab us in the back. Who is the idiot who not only permitted this to happen, but allows it to continue?

I have contacted both CAIR, the FMC and others and offered to debate the Koran, but neither took up my offer. I'm no expert on Islam, but I know enough about it to win hands down against any Muslim, simply because no Muslim can deny such plainly written edicts as Sura 8/12: "I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers; smite ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them." Those who do Mohammed's will are exonerated in the following Sura 8/17: "It is not ye who slew them; it was Allah." The Koran is filled with such moronic verses, which Muslims truly believe they must obey, EVEN TODAY!

Though I am an unbeliever, the Bible, too, contains some pretty bloodthirsty edicts, however, Christians no longer accept them, but Muslims, whether moderate or radical, must believe and follow every single word in the Koran or die denigrating its authority. No wonder there are few if any Muslim apostates.

I am in no way a scaremonger, but understand clearly one thing; THE ENEMY IS AMONG US!
