Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Radical Suggestions for Dealing with Militant Islam

Submitted by G.Vishvas (Germany), Apr 20, 2007 at 06:48

There are muslims born and brought up in islam (A types), and some few who became muslims later (B types).

They are told or come to "know" that:

Allah is the one and only one god, kuran is his last revelation and Mohammad his last and best prophet. A non-muslim is a loser in the next world. Whoever doubts islam and its perfection and finality is going to land in eternal hell. An ex-muslim must be killed and the muslim who carries out this deed is a hero of islam.

About violence he is told that:

Muslims are always the noble peaceful people, all acts of violence by muslims are merely retaliatory.

He is also told:

The non-muslims started all the trouble between muslims and non-muslims. Non-muslims are all scoundrels or fools or backward people. Islam alone brought forth everything that is good and great.

This poisoning of the muslim mind, even of children, never leaves him again. Even a moderate or liberal muslim has his permanent doubts about being friendly or tolerant towards non-muslims.

Islam is, in its core spirit, a fascist totalitarian ideology. It is so in the kuran, hadith and shariah. Also in Mohammad's biography (sirat). No muslim can escape from that. All our criticism of islam is either not read or falls on deaf ears.

Coexistence betwen muslims and non-muslims is neither possible nor desirable. But there is no escape on this one earth and non-muslims have to live with them and suffer till the muslims exterminate them.

If we use Dr. Pipes method, or any other method for that matter, then our extermination may take a little longer.

...Islam will self-destruct - but only after no non-muslims are left on the earth. Only muslims can destroy islam and they will do it - but only after the bogey of non-muslim opposition or subversion to this "wonderful faith" has disappeared and they can no more blame the non-muslims for islam's evils and failures.
