I was willing to buy Islamic fundamentalists were giving Islam a bad name… Then I noticed that people purporting to be Islamic, are all over the planet doing the most horrific things.
Even the worst of Christian Fundamentalists aren’t running around burning, kidnapping, killing, and engaging in the slave trade. Most of the time they’re running their mouths and nothing else.
When I see stuff like the snippets below, I have to rethink my position.
Boko Haram kidnaps schoolgirls to sell into slavery.
What can you say?
Islam says slavery is OK. I find it ironic that 300 – 400 years after the white man was being sold slaves on the Nigerian coast.
We have slaves being sold from a Nigerian Islamic to other Islamic countries as sex slaves. Honestly, this makes my heard hurt.
CAIR would say; “Islam is a peaceful religion. This is a group of fundamentalists. They don’t represent the mainstream of Islam.”
For the record, I’m opposed to the US Military becoming involved in Nigeria.
My reasoning is this; our military would be encumbered by rules of engagement.They’d have journalists, and cinematographers and cameras of all types up their asses. I’d suggest sending in Blackwater or another Mercenary group instead.
No reporters, no photographers, no movie crews, and nobody is going to say anything about what’s done to boko haram. The civilized world will look the other way. So any of those crazy mercs that need to get their freak on… This is the time and place to go let their killer instincts run wild.
Give them the simple requirement. “Get the children back.” Pay them handsomely and if they happen to run across assets of Boko Haram like gold, or bank accounts, well, nobody needs to know about it do they?
The West would be be doing the peaceful followers of Islam a favor by wiping this aberrant group off the planet.
Then everyone could get to know Islam as the peaceful and gentle religion it is.
Crucifixions In Syria
There’s the village in Syria where the people still spoke Aramaic.
A village of christians who were terrorized by an Islamic para military group with the threat of crucifixion if they didn’t convert to Islam. Those who maintained their faith in Christ were in fact crucified.
CAIR would say; “Silly rabbit, that old Convert or Die belief isn’t something Islam takes seriously anymore. This was obviously a group of deranged fundamentalists.”
Rape Victim to be caned
The woman was GANG RAPED. The rapists thought she was having an affair. They Raped her to punish her and then when the justice system of her country found out she’d been raped, Allah’s infinite mercy was to cane her for being a victim.
CAIR would say; “The woman must have done something requiring the punishment of gang rape.”
Facebook insult to Muhammed, CITY on lockdown.
Yesterday, Bangladesh had trouble because someone insulted Muhammad on facebook. Apparently a muslim mob took to the streets pillaging and generally terrorizing everyone else.
CAIR would say; “ ?????”
We won’t even talk about what most islamic countries do to gay people!
At the risk of CAIR calling me names…
This isn’t aberrant groups within the fabric of the religion. The IS the fabric of the religion. As proof I submit to you that these atrocities are happening worldwide, on a daily basis. The only common element is that the people are followers of Islam.
These aren’t independent fundamentalist terror cells. These are average people with a threshold for violence that’s set so low if they can’t find an enemy to kill, they’ll apparently kill each other at random for the slightest reason.
This behavior begs the question for me, what exactly are these people hearing from the Imams in the Mosques?
The only answer that fits behavior is something like “everyone hates you, they would deny you your religion, everyone else is evil and would eat your children, they’re coming to get you, when they do these evil people will rape you, your wife, your children, and then they’ll burn your home to the ground.” Hell after hearing a message like that all my life I’d be pissed off and ready to kill too!
(Wait, I do hear a message similar to that in this country. Only here it’s being said about conservatives and the Republican party on every news cast and Presidential press conference!) Another commentary for another time.
It’s been said, “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth.”
I can no longer buy into the repeated lie that Islam is a peaceful, just, religion. It can’t be, at it’s foundations its a religion based on a “convert or die” philosophy.
Peaceful religions don’t explode into violence when their prophets are; Drawn, Insulted, or portrayed in a negative light.
If this behavior were the norm, Islam wouldn’t be a problem at all. The West would have already nuked the fuck out of Islamic countries for insults to Christ.
Its time for us in the West to stop attempting to delude ourselves.
This is no religion of peace.
At best, this religion will leave it’s neighbors alone.
At worst, this is a religion that sanctions violence in all its many forms in the name of God.
The question for the West, is how to handle a ticking time bomb now embedded in every city of every nation?
