You Say Radical Islam As If There's Some Other Kind
on 25 December 2008
Let me be clear, that as an atheist, I find the Bronze-Age rooted desert spawned theism of Islam as savage and extreme as its Jewish and Christian forbears. Numbers 31: 15-18 gives us a fair example of the barbarian blood-lust underpinning Judaism and Christianity and of the glass houses that Jews and Christians live in when they throw holier-than-thou stones at the violent texts of Islam.
That said, I am an admitted Islamophobe - I DO fear the spread of islam. I watch and understand that the international community of Muslims (Ummah) strives with varying degrees of fanaticism for hegemony over all other ways of being through a systematic ratcheting up of aggressive confrontation and usurpation. Unique among modern-day major faiths, Islam roots and cheers for the decimation of all that differs with the Koranic version of how human beings should live.
Wherever Islam gains a foothold, intolerance, oppression, suffering and slaughter follow. The Muslim made a wasteland out of his land, then he laid waste to the land of his neighbor; now he seeks to do the same to ours. I may disagree on many fundamental political and religious levels with the author of this book, but on this I could not agree more: They must be stopped!
