Much has been made of late about extremist or radical Muslims and their campaign of terror, then the commentators will say that “moderate” Muslims abhor what the radicals are doing.
But what is an extremist or radical Muslim? That is someone who would be taking their religion to the extreme or executing it to a radical degree. Is that what is happening? Absolutely not. Those so-called extremist and radicals are only carrying out what the Koran tells them to do: Convert or kill all non-believers. The Muslim prophet, Mohammed, told his followers to kill non-believers.
There have been stories, anecdotal, not confirmed but highly believable of ISIS Muslims beheading young children for not converting to Islam. If true, and I believe them to be true, then the ISIS Muslims are just following an age old tradition of true, fundamental Islamic religion.
These Muslims are not radical nor are they extremists, they are merely fundamental Muslims doing what their god and their prophet told them to do. The goal of the Islamic religion is, and always has been, the conversion or killing of all non-believers in the world. (There is a third option, living as a special tax-paying, second-class citizen who can never rise up in society, but mostly, Muslims like to kill the non-believers.) Al-Qaeda,
Boko Harum, among other fundamentalist Islamic groups are only doing what their
prophet and their god have told them to do.
You have to ask yourself, what kind of inhuman, unfeeling, evil person must a man be to murder innocent children? That is the very bottom of the pit of human depravity. Their god is an evil, ravaging, flesh-eating monster and yet they call Islam the religion of peace. They can’t even have peace among themselves. Sunnis kill Shiites and Shiites kill Sunnis, like Catholics and Protestants used to go to war and kill each other. The only thing is, the Christians got over it. The Muslims are no where close to getting over it.
As to the so-called moderate Muslims, in order to trust them they must openly and publicly repudiate the parts of the Koran, as well as the words of Mohammed, that call for violent jihad and/or the conversion or killing of people who do not accept the Islamic religion. They must repudiate “honor killings” and the unequal status of women and they must repudiate slavery, among other things that their holy book and their prophet tells them is proper Muslim conduct. That would be the Islamic equivalent of The Reformation of the Christian religion. After that, they must be willing to fight to the death against the fundamentalist Muslims until they either repudiate violent jihad or are eradicated from the Earth.
I know this will never happen and the cancer of Islam will be with us for generations, eating away at the more free and open democracies of the modern world. So be afraid, be very afraid, because the governments of the modern, open societies, keep trying to placate the monster and lie to us when they say that Islam is really a religion of peace, after which, the monster laughs and takes another bite. At base, Islam is not a religion of peace. It is a religion of violence, hatred, intolerance, misogyny, and ignorance.
