Why opposing islamophobia is not a defense of extremism – Le Monde diplomatique – English edition.
I have little use for those who make excuses for radical Muslims.
And that is the stand I would think you would take….one that all Muslims are radicals….pure crap!
I was going to say that I hope Christensen doesn’t expect Islamophobics to comprehend this but then Terrance pretty much did that for me.
Asinine, Larry. Just asinine. It doesn’t occur to you for a second that perhaps we “Islamophobics” have good reason to be suspicious of Muslims, ‘eh? Either we accept that good Muslims exist, and therefore Islam is peaceful – or we’re small-minded. Nice.
Good Nazi’s existed too. Whenever you want to debate the fundamentals of Islam, you let me know.
I believe most Muslims are good people. I believe most are peaceful. But I cannot say that Islam is a peaceful religion. It is much easier for a person of poor character to justify their crimes with Islam than almost any other religion.
Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism can all be hijacked by bad people. Islam, however, is much easier to hijacked and use to justify murderous actions and causes. The Qu’ran specifically allows for Jihad.
Quran (8:55) – Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve
Quran (4:52) – Those (Christians) are they whom Allah hath cursed…
Those are just a couple of mundane examples. If you want, I can quote the verses that call for war on the unbeliever, the Infidel. And I can show quotes that you’d think were pulled from a Nazi handbook because they say some of the most awful things about Jews.
Islam itself is not a peaceful religion to anyone who’s actually familiar with it.
