islam shows it's true colors

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

There is no escaping the truth...

Suicide bombings every week show islam's intolerance of jews. The slaughter of Christian missionaries (who feed the poor) in Indonesia, the tossing of grenades into churches in the middle of services, the myriad daily events of persecution shows islamic intolerance of Christianity. The muslims regularly commit horrific acts of brutality in Kashmir showing hatred of Hindus. The islamic persecution of Buddhists is well documented and we need not even begin to mention 9/11, Khobar Towers and the piling evidence of hatred of "the west". The evidence is overwhelming and the very substantiable, logical verdict is that islamism is a "religion" of intolerance, hatred, blood-lust, bigotry, violence and death. islam is intolerant of EVERYTHING other than islam itself (and with some of the uncivilized tribal brutality within islamic countries, even that statement is subject to debate).

The inability (or unwillingness) of muslims in the civilized world to openly confront these daily horrific acts speaks volumes. Their silence is deafening. The occasional debate along these lines with a muslim seems to inevitably get bent into an Israel vs. Paletstinian debate. This obsession permeates and seems to dominate any and all debate about the nature of islam today.

The average islamic supporter has a strange selective ability to recall history. It seems that history starts with the birth of their chief filth-monger, that perverted, murderous, delusional child-raper, mohammad himself. There is a strange inability to see or admit to the butchery by which islam spread, and no mention of the dominant religions of the area which prevailed long before the filth if islam began it's spread. How convenient.

A very substantiable case can be built for the superiority of our western culture, one which is embedded in a Judeo-Christian tradition of democratic priciples. I illustrate this point by comparing the acts of 9/11 with those of August 7, 1945. On 9/11, thousands of innocent civilian lives were snuffed out in a horrific, unprecedented act of barbarism. Within hours, there were hordes of islamic sheep in the streets of various mideast countries praising "allah", whooping, smiling, carrying on like so many mindless jackasses. They were really having a good time over this. Compare this with our use of the atomic bomb over Japan. After years of built-up disdain and hatred of Japan, we ended the war with the horrific use of the atomic bomb on our enemy. There was no whooping, there was no hollering, no carrying on, no praising of God or similar asinine actions. Quite the contrary, prayers for peace in that time of war were nearly ubiquitous.

...
Times such as we now live in are not ripe for Neville Chamberlain-esque "peace in our time". There needs to be a limit to Christian charity. Let's stop the little charade, the gandy dance around that which is obvious to the intellectually honest student of history. ...
