i am at a loss as to what to say. i've read through this whole thread, and imho, theres a ton of garbage. And not much decent conversation. Its like
going to the landfill, and you see trash everywhere, but theres this one couch that would look great in your dorm, so you take it. Except it still
smells like the landfill. Shame.
Kudos to the OP. i've read many posts espousing the need for people to use intellegince and logic when viewing the propaganda spouted by the media
against Islam. Never a thread though. Kudos.
The cold hard truth is simply that Islam has been hijacked, and there is nothing we can do about it. Fundamentalists will be fundamentalists. What the
world at large views as mainstream Islam is simply the perception being giving off by a tiny percentage of Muslims who have the loudest voice in the
room so to speak. World views of Christianity are quickly headed down the same path, albeit without major concern, what with the lack of exploding
materials . Many of Americas global brethern view us as a nation of psycho bible thumpers. Thank you Pat Robertson and company
When you have the representatives of Islam being a country led by back assed Bedoin Wahhabist hypocrites, then the world will view Islam as a back
assed, wahhabi type bedoin religion, hypocritical in nature.
When you have the representatives of Christianity being a country led by war mongering, holier than thou hypocrites, who intend on bringing about the
eschaton, then the world will view Christianity as war mongering, holier than thou, eschaton immenentizing religion, hypocritical in nature.
Lucky for Christianity, their are a few alternate perceptions available for the masses to view, whereas Islam, there isn't.
And thus we have our current conundrum. Is Islam a violent, sociopathic, infestation. Well, this all depends on wether you view human beings as
violent, sociopathic parasites. i'll leave that up to you to decide.
You know what i find extremely funny? That damn near nobody has heard of Sufis. i myself am Sufi. When i take a step back and look upon myself from an
outside perspective, it sure does explain alot.
And for arguements sake, lets not credit the Deobandi sect as being Sufi, they are the farthest thing from it. (to all those in Uk, you know what im
Love and Peace
