Oliver taunted Islam in its concept that religion and politics is not separable! Yet he is ignorant of the fact that the said Islamic concept is just the very same of the Biblical concept of governance, specifically in the Old Testament ,from the time of Moses down to the Kingdom states of Judah and Israel! This is so because Muslims obey the Law of God ,not the law of men, as in democracy in the same way the Jews obey the Law of God/Torah and not the law of men/foreigners! This Islamic/Biblical concept of combination of church and state is inevitable if the people will truly repect the Law of God and obey it, becase God is the owner of heavens and earth and His will should be done on earth(Theocratic government!) as it is being done in heaven as what Jesus had prayed to happened during his time!

Oliver brags about democracy, the separation of church and state, because christianity is not actually founded by Jesus but by Paul! While Jesus strongly advocated the implementation of God'sLaw(Matth5:17-19) and for Jesus the Law/Will of God should be implemented on earth as it is being implemented in heaven(Matth6:10). But in contrast Paul, the real founder of christianity, had abolished the Law of God and throw it in the garbage can as useless(Acts13:39;Gal 3:10-11;5:2-5;Rom4:14-15). and what Paul wanted to be followed is not the law of God but the law of men or the secular authorities, ie the pagan Roman Empire(Rom13:1-7) whom Paul describes it(ie the pagan Roman empire) as the servant of God!

See the truth Oliver? You have to take note also that muslim extremists are just very few compared to the true/moderate Muslims! Yes the extrremist like the al=qaeada and other terrorists is very well-published in the media all over the world, but they were very well-known, not in their good works but evil. Of course it does not mean that they are very well-known in their evil deeds they are then the true Islam - only fools will argue like that.

We have to take note that because the narrow-minded extremists are perhaps successful in murdering or silencing their brave critics, it does not mean that the position or views of the extremists or militant terrorists are the true Islam! Only fools will argue like that!

The very reason that the extremist/terrorists are still persistent is because they are armed men, ready to kill anybody, while the true and peaceful muslims just live as ordinary peaceful citizens ,who have no idea in killing also the extremists or neutralized militant terrorists!! That is the big difference between majority of true muslims, compared to those only few narrow-minded and self-centered extremists!!! For the true muslims who are allmost civilians in the first place.

the idea to kill also the terrorist/extremists in return so that they will be eliminated in the face of the earth is simply impossible and unislamic way of dealing the problem!

The terrorists/extremists did indeed kill or murder, but it does not mean that they are victorious or their view of Islam is the correct one! The majority of true and peaceful muslims are just silent all the time and just wait passively till the time these bigot narrow-minded extremists will vanish into thin air through government campaign to eradicate them, or through self realizaton through proper education!

see how ignorance blinded you?
