Bolstering Moderate Criminal Tribal Warlords

Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims

Submitted by DCM (United States), Apr 22, 2007 at 17:28

Bolstering moderate Muslims is like bolstering moderate criminal tribal warlords.

Islam equates itself with the state. There can be no separation of church and state. The "church", i.e. the mosque, is the state; the Islamic clerics are the dictatorial government, selected much like the capo de capo and capos of organized crime.

Islam demands for Islamic law to replace all other law.

Islam does not allow or tolerate any other religion.

Islam is opposed to democracy.

Islam imposes the death penalty for minor offenses.

Islam is a male chauvinistic based culture. And an extreme one at that - if female does not conform to the required subjugation, she may or will be beaten, scarred with acid or killed.

Islam arose from Mohammed, who was a failed, small time gangster until he went off to his cave one day by himself and came up with the a new scam - the idea that god ordered him to rule the world, plunder and kill all who opposed him, rape their women, enslave their children and divide up whatever he didn't want for himself with the thugs who worked for him.

The Islamist apologists can argue all the nuances they want -

I know several Islamists and they didn't kill me;

Islam has been hijacked by a few hundred million bad apples, they rest are really OK as long as they are the minority, don't have weapons of mass destruction, don't have swords to cut off our heads and don't make us wear baraques;

Most Islamists are really good people - they are just afraid that if they come out against murdering innocent woman and children in the name of Islam that some of the few hundred million bad apple Islamists will hack their head off with a dull knife;

Verse 2, page 5 of the Quran could be interpreted to mean "try to talk the infidels out of their beliefs" even though it actually translates as "unless they submit their beliefs and money, chop the infidel's head off", which is really just a quaint old Arabic tribal expression;

Whose to say that the Judeo-Christian, Western culture is any better that the Islamic culture? Take a look at Afghanistan, Iran, Somalia or any place where Islam gained control. Any of you want to live there? If yes, go ahead, the US is not keeping you from going.
