Yet the truth is that people who practice Islam have been living in western cultures for centuries, and the vast majority of them are as westernized as you or I.

Extremists in all religions is what makes each religion dangerous, yours and yours are certainly no exception to that friend.


Sigh, the same old cliches. I would like to know what you define as ''Westernized.'' Besides, it's not a matter of Westernizing, it's a matter of integration. Not speaking the local language properly while you have lived here for more than three decades, is not exactly integrating. Not having a sense of unity and belonging (German-born Turks feeling Turk, rather than German) is not exactly what I call integrating.

I'm Dutch, but I live somewhere else. My opinion on Wilders is that he's a demagogic populist not contributing anything to the debate. After all, saying that the prophet had a brain tumor is not exactly helping anything.

However, there is a problem and frankly, respectfully, speaking, I'm getting pretty much fed up of people like you, who seem (in my opinion) clueless and try to downplay the problems that exist. Multiculturalism (or to be more specific: the integration of large groups of Muslims) has failed. I guess you are not from Europe, otherwise you would not be downplaying this problem.

Besides, it is a fact that there is a very significant group of Islam followers that share an extremist view. The standard answer of apologists is: there's extremism everywhere. True, but we have to distinguish between the extent. I know not of a large number of Christians using violence (against muslims) in the name of God. If you do, please provide me with some information.

Westernized according to Proto is as follows:

Pays taxes
Has a Credit Card
Has a Mortgage
Shops at outlet stores
Takes trash to curb two nights a week
Drives speed limit
Watches FOX, CNN, and or MSNBC
Has contemplated at least once, why McDonalds ever came out with the McRib Sandwich!

Westernized!

Westernized - Has a long legacy stretching back millenia of rugged self-determination.
Recently hijacked by certain monotheistic religion's and very recently subverted by casino capitalism and multiculturalism. Now incredibly vulnerable to outside influences, including islam...

THe point is that he's trying to spark tensions before anythings happened. Personally, I have no problem with Islamic people living in my community, I was best friends with one from grades 5-7, and he was no less Canadian than myself. What I'm trying to say is don't throw all people of one faith into one category... There are good Christian/Catholic people just like there are stupid ones, i.e. Pasture Terry Jones

" And as your Avatar amply demonstrates, Christians are just as likely to kill Muslims for not believing in the Christian faith as Muslims are to kill Christians for not living by the Muslim faith. "


FALSE.

Again, the crusades followed the orders of men, NOT the Words of Christ! and as proof, Christians do not slaughter in the name of Christ today.

muslims kill and slaughter in the name of islam....because ' the very book they read ' the koran, instructs them to!

Which is why they ' muslims ' continue to slaughter and kill to this very day in the name of islam!

this isn't hidden.. simply GOOGLE the words ' muslims kill ' or ' muslims murder ' along with the year... and you will see a large number of non-muslims slaughtered and murdered by muslims worldwide!

STOP BEING FOOLED AND DO THE HOMEWORK YOURSELVES. each and every one of you!

i just now googled ' muslims kill 2011 ' and this is the very first link and not even a few days ago!

' Nigeria: Muslims kill 17 Christians, including wife and three children of a pastor '

www.jihadwatch.org...

the story is always the same only different parts of the globe..

so many of you proclaim " DENY IGNORANCE! " yet you decieve yourselves by not doing the proper footwork and lean on assumption.

the crusades , the kkk , hitler were not following the words of Christ!
they were following the words of men the same many of you are doing today.
do not be offended and respond in anger! simply do the homework is all i ask.
thank you.

No, he is not. Wilders is exposing the Islamic ideology for what it truly is. He is NOT singling anyone out or a group out. Just the Ideology of islam!


Dont critise Muslims or Jews. Even though what you say is the truth they'll label you bigot or racist. There are many who fail to recognise religion for what it is.

Did any of you folks catch Wilders being interviewed by Sun NEWS Ezra Levant? It was quite excellent and Mr Wilder raised some very good points specifically that islam really isn't a religion but rather an ideology like the nazi's followed; an oppressive authoritarianism ideology. Wilder raised a very valid point when he asked why mein kampf was banned in Holland yet the koran, a book that is full of a doctrine of pure hatred, is not also banned.

I love how so called 'liberals' just love to sit on the fence when it comes to islam and it's encroachment into western modern societies that are accepting of gay people and look at women as equals of men. For years women have struggled for equality in the work place and in society in general. Now, along comes this barbaric hate filled authortarian ideology and these same 'liberals' are silent when it comes to speaking out against it's stone age beliefs and pratices. Americans and Canadians need to pay close attention to what has happened in Europe and the failure to integrate islam into a modern civilized society.

Islam has absolutely no place in a modern civilized society, nor does ANY belief system, doctrine or religion that preaches hatred and assimilation.

I too am a Westerner living in a Muslim country for the past 9 years. There are several Muslims in my family and most Muslims I know are gentle and kind folk and they live in harmony with the 10% Christian population. There is more tribal/regional differences (often very violent) between Muslims than between Christians and Muslims, although I would be lying if I said that there had not been Muslim/Christian violence occurring in the country since I moved there. Not once have I been approached to convert to Islam.



You can be sure this is truth, its all in there and a whole lot more. Its no suprise why the lies contained within this book are there.


I do not speak Arabic but I have an English translation of Al Quran (English does not translate from Arabic very well) but I have read much of the book, primarily to see what all of the fuss made by MSM is and quite frankly, I see no more violence in this than in the Bible. I suggest that there are no more lies in Al Quran than in the Bible.



If you look into their prophet muhhamed a troubled child he was, then brainwashed was he. He who loveth a meteorite and slept with men and married a child from within his own family,


One could Argue that Catholicism actively promotes both homosexuality and Paedophilia since the Age of consent in Vatican City is 12 yrs. As Protopalsmictraveller says; all of the Abrahamic religions have fairly cataclysmic endings for those who do not follow the teachings.

In fact, when you look deeper into religion you will see that most are very similar. Allah is the same God as the Christian God, Jesus appears in Al Quran but it is Muhammad who is the last prophet and therefore delivers the word of Allah to Muslims. Most of the common religions are based on ancient Astrology from times of the Egyptian Pharoes. Only when you understand this will you truly understand what a scam all religions are.

The Bible and for that matter, the Torah have been edited and modified so much over the centuries to suit certain agendas of the elite and deprive readers of certain ancient wisdom. This has led Muslims to encourage the passing on of the Holy script through generations utilizing Human memory. This is why you see young boys learning Al Quran verbatum whilst we in the west, not understanding their reason for doing so, poke fun at them and blindly accept our corrupted texts believing we are somehow superior.

There is but one God for all mankind and I for one think it is more important to be a good human being than to blindly follow any single religion. All people from all faiths have enough problems bestowed upon us by those who wish to control us and we really need to find peace and harmony amongst ourselves. Only when we can demonstrate this kind of tolerance and respect for our fellow man will we have any chance of breaking free from those who wish to control us.

PEACE,
RK

I live in the GTA, and by no means am I threatened by the muslim population.
In my area, I'm actually a minority as we have many immigrants from the south east asian and middle east, and even alot of africans. Many people complain about how the canadian culture is being burned by immigrants.
I disagree, if anything- it teaches us alot about each other and other cultures.
I worked with a muslim from Nigeria in a warehouse.
Wisest man I have ever met, and could hold a conversation/argument better together than anyone in my family.
Not once did he ever push his faith on to me... I actually found my self asking him alot of things ( I was brought up catholic and a J-school student, so I am a tad curious) Majority of things he said made sense, and the stuff that didn't would usually make sense at some point in the future. I learned alot from him, not only history and foreign culture- but true wisdom.
These people are not our enemies- and if you ask me, majority of people who live in the GTA would say they don't have a problem with muslims. Hell theres a brand new mosque right down the street from me. No outrage from the community, instead that community is fighting off the introduction of a new condo complex.
They are not here to take-over and nor do I think they would ever be able to. Many of them just wish for a nice place to live, and I don't blame them Canada is an awesome country.

There is a difference between those who call themselves muslims and those who actually follow the instruction of the koran.

The muslim who follows the instruction of the koran are murdering in the name of islam.


the ' muslims ' who are not murdering in the name of islam are not muslims.







GOOGLE ' muslims kill or muslims murder including the year.... their you will find true muslims.


i do not say this hatefully. i do not say this with a racist tone.

this is simply FACT. the koran literally teaches this nonsense. Although, ANY person who sides and defends the koran also defends the entity of hate and murder, therefore they also take part in the hideous book of bloodshed and lies.

When you leave your Country to live in another you should become a part of the Country you move to.


I have severe issues with statements like these. Why? Because most of the time, the people using them are oblivious as to where/why these statements originated.

According to pfffff laws and human rights and all that "some" people only incidentally believe in, every human being is free to believe as they wish. Now I know this will upset you, so please put on your big boy pants, but it has to be said: Those people living in your country have the same rights as you do in your own country. They are free to believe and say as they do, in accordance with law. That LAW does not state that they HAVE to eat what you eat, wear what you wear or believe what you believe...and if you believe they do then I suggest you incarcerate yourself you Nazi scum.

Or are you talking about the IMAGE you have of foreigners inside your country? IMAGES painted by commercial news agencies and whatnot...?

Statements like the one I quoted are the foundation for division amongst your OWN people.

If Canada wants to protect its democratic freedoms and Western beliefs, it must act now and keep “Islamic ideology” outside of Canada’s borders, said Geert Wilders, leader of Holland’s Freedom Party, during an interview on The Source with Ezra Levant.

Um... Isn't that an oxymoron? Protecting democracy by banning Islamic ideology and cracking down on those "freedom hating" muslims is not protecting democracy. It sounds more like protecting authoritarianism. The sad thing is that so called "freedom lovers" listen to morons like these.

Honestly I don't have a problem with monkeys like this preaching hate. It is bound to happen when we live in a society where people hate what they don't understand. Plus they have every right to excersize their freedom of speech- no one should stop them from doing so. However I hate it when monkeys like this preach their hate while being hypocritical. If there's one thing worse than a liar it is a hypocrit.

I have three questions,

1- Are you being paid?
2- Are you not being paid because you're doing it out of principle after being convinced?
3- Are you brainwashed and just repeating what you heard from your pastor?

Or do you think it would be a good idea to go to Africa and warn everybody of the white man? Go to South-America and warn everybody of the Catholic man? Go to the US and warn everybody of the British crown?
Go to Persia and warn everybody of the Muslim Arabs?

Oh wait...I see, you live in the past. Otherwise all of that wouldn't make sense today...

Painting muslims with one brush...........................because muslims are all required to follow the Koran, sunnah and hadith - there is no choice, no dissention, no apostising - just submission to the direct instructions of allah and the perfect unquestionable example of Muhammeds life.


Does the same brush apply to everyone who follows The Bible? If not, why not? Interpretation is everything. Consider the difference between Billy Graham and Jim Jones and see if you cannot understand the difference between a Moderate Muslim and a Wahhabi. The first two followed the same book. The second two follow the same book.

I hope you can perhaps clear this up for me.

your sarcasm defines you.

Violent attacks against Christians in Indonesia have forced the closure of 20 churches in recent months, testing the fragile religious balance in predominantly-Muslim nation.But the government denies the incidents are a sign of growing religious intolerance, putting the blame on politics and regional elections instead.Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from West Java.

english.aljazeera.net...

' aljazeera ' source.

Watch this very important video and see for yourselves firsthand of the mindset of a true muslim nature.

the koran literally instructs violence to the non-believer.. this is a horrific fact!

the very book they follow instructs the muslim to ' conquer ' all infidels.

surely the muslim who denies this is a liar or ignorant.

yes, im fully aware i may be ' unpopular ' for informing others.. but i highly encourage you all to investigate for your own safety and awareness. do not be fooled! DENY ignorance.
