A Miered Religion

Via LGF:

In Alexandria, Egypt, a Muslim mob attacked a Christian church and rioted to protest the release of a DVD that portrayed Muslims attacking Christian churches...

It is getting harder and harder to think of Islam as anything other than a poorly written and over-extended joke.

In 1009 Hakem, the Fatimite Caliph of Egypt, ordered the destruction of the Chruch of the Holy Sepulchre and all the Christian Churches in the Empire the First Crusade did not start til 1096

Islam is so twisted that it is more dangerous than Hitler and the Nazi's ever were. They have spent hundreds of years brainwashing their people to do whatever some nut tells them to do, no independent thought, just follow the leader. Hey, that's probably where the dim-wits got the idea to follow the Screamer. All are as brainless as the Islamic population world wide.

The evils of Islam concern me, but not as much as our self-destructive position of not publicly acknowledging the violent nature of the religion. The position of "not wanting to offend" is a one-way street; we cannot offend the sensibilities of a Muslim or Islam, but they are free to persecute non-Muslims at their will.

A case in point is the burning of the two Taliban corpses in Afghanistan by US troops. The decision was made by a lieutenant (with probably two years service under his belt) for sanitation reasons. Digging a hole was most likely out of the question, the Muslim religion’s amount of time within which to bury the dead had elapsed, the town had been asked to retrieve and burry the bodies and refused, so the decision was made. (I’ll be damned; a lieutenant that can make a decision – promote him immediately!) The scene is reported by two radical left Australian reporters who embellish the report to make it into what it isn’t (the burning was purposely done to disrespect Islam) and Islam goes into an uproar. The really sad thing is our political left is shouting even louder – our uncontrollable military is at it again; another Abu Ghrab. Oh, by the way, it is perfectly okay for the incensed al Qaeda terrorists to behead our citizens, and it is perfectly okay for the Muslims to burn and hang the corpses of our dead citizens (noncombatants, by the way).

I’m tired of the double standard that always claims we are in the wrong (automatically condemned without an investigation) no matter what. In case you haven’t noticed, we’re fighting a war against radical Islamic fascists who want to kill or enslave the rest of the non-Muslim world. They will be satisfied with nothing less than world domination and we are hamstringing our gallant military. It is time to take the matches away from the terrorists not just run around putting out the brush fires they start. It is time to unbind our military and let the generals prosecute this war. The liberal’s sensibility may be offended, but at least they will be free and within that freedom, they’ll get over it.

I guess that’s my rant for the day.

Islam? A peaceful religion? Naw! Muslims? An informed people? Naw! Neither in our lifetimes!

Afghanistan and Iraq are the first steps in a right direction but I'm not holding out much hope after the coalitions leave.

Are there places were Islam is peaceful? Sort of, in a few places but not many! Are there a few places where Muslims are not so ignorant? I'm aware of a few places, but not many!

Is Islam a more dangerous "ism" than the Nazi's nationalism? You bet it is! And not just for the West, it's dangerous for all peoples everywhere!

God help us with the leaders we have.

Isn't it, though?
