With the brutal beheading of Lee Rigby in Woolwich, London this last week, it is an event we shouldn't really be surprised by any more. Muslims have wanted to execute Salman Rushdie in a similar manner, as Bruce Bawer writes, as far back as 1989. Rushdie, the Indian/British author (of Muslim descent) was sentenced to death by Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini for Rushdie's book the Satanic Verses. Upon issuing the Ayatollah's fatwa, there were scenes we're now all too familiar with: violent protests worldwide with Muslims outraged over some book they'd never even heard of and certainly not read.

Looking back, what was strange about the Rushdie episode was not just the fatwa (religious ruling) itself, but the controlled reaction to it. Despite the many column inches dedicated to the problem, not a word was said about the underlying justification for the death sentence, the religion. More specifically, Islam.

A little over a decade later, and with a far higher Muslim immigrant population in Europe both Theo van Gogh and Pym Fortyn were murdered for their anti-Islamic opinions. As a result of this, Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and many more are in hiding needing around the clock protection for having expressed anti-Islamic views or simply written about subjects which the Muslim community considers taboo.

Read Muad'Dib review in this section

He has said everything wonderfully

I am NOT religious, I have NO religion, I DO have Muslim friends. However they admit they have no time or room for other religions and as such, that in itself says it all i think.

I cannot add much else to Muad'dib's excellent review

No doubt the intellectual elite who consider themselves mentally superior to others will claim, those that dare criticise Islam are "Racists"

Pathetic nonsense.

It is generally the gutless, who are too afraid to speak up against Islam, that claim to be morally superior.

They are not, they are just cowards!

Muslims are not bad, it is Islam that is!!!

As an Atheist I always hear Muslims complain that America and the Christian west cause wars "not the peaceful Muslims"

Well where have Muslims ever lIved in peace?

Iran/Iraq? both countries were enemies of USA and still they were killing each other!!!

Muslims have NEVER lived in peace with one another, they are originally a tribal middle east peoples and as such will always find some grievance to fight over.

Sorry I know its politically incorrect, but until this mad religion is curtailed there will be non stop trouble.

There will be NO peace until EVERYONE submits to Islam and that is what the "liberal elite" dont get.

They think if you keep giving ground, Muslims will be satisfied at some point, THEY WONT, until everything has been given to them, including you believing in Mohammed, the pedophile, murderer and supposed prophet.

He married a SIX YEAR OLD, and Consummated the marriage when she was 9 and he was 52!!!!!!

The elites tell us that Islam has always been part of one big happy human family. Islam is here and it is a wonderful thing. Islam is a foundational part of our civilization. Muslims make wonderful neighbours.
The elites tell us that if we don't get along with Political Islam, if we find a problem, then the problem is with us. The fact of the matter is that Mohammed attacked every single neighbour he had. His only success came through violence. His dying words were to hurt Jews, Christians and all Kafirs. Mohammed was Islam and he was never compatible with any Kafir. The Big Lie is just that. There is no way to live with Islam. Life with Islam is a succession of demands. Mohammed never stopped until 100% of his demands were met. That was life with Mohammed--the Sunna.

Islam is a civilization that is designed to extinguish all Kafir civilizations down to their last cultural vestige. Annihilation is Sunna. Mohammed did not stop until the Kafirs surrendered to his demands to change the smallest details of their lives into his way of doing. The last 1400 years of history is proof of the brutal efficiency of Islamic politics. There has never been a culture where Islam and Kafirs existed in long-term peace. After a long enough time period, Islam takes over the civilization. This is the goal of Islam.

But since Kafirs don't know anything about the history of Islam, they think that we will work this out like we always have. We will find a compromise. After all, in Kafir civilization, progress is made through teamwork and compromise. The first and crucial error is thinking that Islam is analogous to our civilization and that our rules apply to it. Let's compare Islam with our civilization's ideals.
