Islam's cosmic battle against the west

Reader comment on item: Islam's Battle with a Hostile World

Submitted by Darwin Barrett (United States), Jul 7, 2003 at 19:07

We seem to continuously underestimate the Arabic Islamic culture. Every individual who embraces this culture is duty bound to do anything in their power to thwart the Infidels and further the cause of Islam. Any form of deception, any act of violence, any denial of responsibility, any attempt to excuse or condone the acts of Muslims against any Infidel are all tickets to paradise. Even passive silence. They are masters at changing sides, and deceiving one enemy into fighting another enemy("The Enemy of My Enemy is My friend", at least until that Enemy is defeated). This is not a conspiracy, it is a culture. They know the west cannot attack them "as a religion" because the west's main platform is religious freedom. They will hide under the guise of a religion. They are really a culture. A civilization complete with Laws and Traditions. The head of this culture, and it's role model, is the Prophet Mohammed.

They are holding some very high cards in this "Clash of Civiliations".
