Indeed -- enough said. The Sunday after 911, I had an American couple visiting in one of the congregations that I serve and naturally the issue was on their minds and I said I would speak to it during the service.Having done undergraduate Middle East studies, I came prepared with something old and something new.Something Old -- words from the A. Khomeni and Something New -- were words from Osama.I recall saying if I set these words besides each other and blacked out date references, all of us would have a hard time figuring out who said what because the words were so similar.I recall saying how many Muslims in North America are horrified by the violence, because their views have been changed by Western ideas. But many views have never changed.I recall saying that Islam is a religion born in blood for the conquest of the world by blood. And a true Muslim, that is one being true to their leader, must be prepared to do violence in order to bring about the blessed society where Islam dominates.A religion of peace? Hardly, for that would be a denial of the aim of its founder. For violence is necessary, especially when enough forces are available to make the grab for power very plausible or possible.Do I believe there are many individual Muslims who desire to live in peace? Yes!But they do so in denial of one of the fundamental ideas of their religion.
islamic definition of "peace" means their sharia law theocracy rules the land. there is no radical, moderate, hijacked or any other nuanced semanticism type of islam. there is only islam which is based on the life of a murdering 7th century warlord.the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.see the links in the pdf version below for more accurate info about islam==========islam is a horrible ideology for human rights5 key things about islam 1. mythical beliefs - all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.2. totalitarianism - islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.3. violence - islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.4. dishonesty - only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo's peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.5. misogyny - present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.conclusions ??there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.graphics versionhttp://img829.imageshack.us/img829/5792/dangero.jpg1 page pdf version - do file/download 6kb viewer doesn't show fonts well, has better fonts header footer links, great for emailing printing etchttp://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B_UyNP-72AVKYWNiNTFlYTEtMTA1ZC00YjhiLTljMDUtMDhhNDE0NDMzNmYz
