Dont you want to answer my questions on page two?
Frankly no I don't. But if it will move the conversation along to whatever point you want to make, I will oblige as best I can.
The Socratic Questions were...
What, to you, would be the difference between criticism of and hate-speech against Islam? Examples?
A criticism of Islam might be, "I don't feel that Sharia Law should be acceptable in this world as it violates human rights."
While an example of hate speech is...
Something to ponder…Can a Muslim be a real American?
In light of the murders at Ft. Hood by a Muslim Officer (who had sworn to defend the people, our Constitution and the United States ) this article
becomes more timely and real than ever;
Can a good Muslim be a good American?
I sent that question to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:
Theologically – no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia
Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam.
Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).
Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great
Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him.
Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be
Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist.
Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually – no. Because when we declare “one nation under God,” the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as
heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.
Therefore after much study and deliberation….perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both
“good” Muslims and good Americans.
What percentage of the Religion as a whole might this be?
Really that would be impossible to answer. The numbers of practicing Muslims fluctuate all the time. Of those numbers a percentage of them might be
indoctrinated by people who feed them jihadist propaganda.
To guess, I would come up with the conclusion that between 1 and 10% of all Muslims can be considered extremist. But of course that's a guess.
But what I really want to focus on here is the conspiracy about propaganda. There is a propaganda campaign that is being conducted in the western
world against Muslims, just as I am sure that Islamic countries are conducting their own propaganda campaigns against the west.
