Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: use your words carefully in regards of the prophet muhammed

Islam evil or not? I would say the question is somewhat irrelevant . It has been stolen for evil purposes and evil people, therefore the "silent" majority must speak up or be branded as evil as well.

Where is the outrage of Muslims(American) over the 9/11 attacks or the murder of people ridding a bus to work in any given nation? Islam has honor killings, girl circumcision, general oppression of women, stonings, suicide bombers etc... While I would agree that no organized religion is innocent of past horrors, most have moved past it into a age of tolerance. Islam in its current state has more in common with Nazism or Stalinism. The goal seem to be more political and a desire to rule the world and subjugate the rest of the world to their views (sounds a bit like Hitler doesn't it?).

So in the current state of affairs I would argue that it is the non-Muslims vs the Muslims, kill or be killed or enslaved, take your pick. So until we quit bowing to the ACLU and stand up for traditional American values and the costs that come with being free, I am afraid that the good men on women trying to give freedom to the oppressed may be in vain. My greatest fear is that my one year old son will be fighting Muslims in the streets of America twenty years from now.

It is time to quit being nice, turn the mid east into a glass bowl. In the long run it will be us or them.
