While you speak in platitudes and of lofty ambitions of the faithful, there is a hard, brutal reality that this administration refuses to face or
confront. Every day, around the world, there are murders and kidnappings and terror visited on those who have no animosity to Islam or Muslims,
merely because of where they are or where they were born. This is all done is (misguided?) reliance upon their faith, their mullahs, their Imams and
We have no business "negotiating" with those who have sworn blood-oaths against us and our ways of life(secular or in faith), even if the bases of
their motivation are "religious" (or sacrilegious).
It is folks with thinking like yours that only ensures we mankind will wage with Islam. There is a difference between Jihadists and muslims.
Majority of muslims are only just like the rest of us fellow humans, with only human desires and common grounds of goals in life for themselves and
their next generations. This is nothing lofty, platitudinal, or even any issues with sincerity. It is only a reality ALL mankind shares and aspires
towards, not just muslims.
The Jihadists are a minority, with little support, and are only acting outside of the muslim greater Community that the prophet had taught, and all
which honest imams teach.
The Jihadists and hardliner clerics' only hope to get their way to power is by converting the ordinary muslims to their cause, and will succeed if the
rest of humanity refuses to comprehend the true teachings of Islam, but instead to denigrate ALL muslims because of the unfounded fear of being
converted, alienating them to look for support in the arms of Islam's apostates.
Islam is not evangelical. Your submission can only be based upon free will. In the 7th century, when the prophet taught, he DID NOT teach forceful
conversions, but only by convincing others to adopt a civilised way of life. He had fought with those who wished his followers harm, and coversion
then was the only way to ensure that the barbarian infidels truly ended their horrors.
However, he had never nor taught anyone to convert children of the book to Islam, and had even lived side by side with them. As for the claims that
non-muslims were taxed heavily, it was only for that period as the jews then were the richest compared to the uneducated and illiterate new converts,
and thus their funds were shared to build the new society in Arabia, a case of balancing and redistribution of wealth which is part of the centrality
At latter years, his teachings had been misinterpretated, as is common whenever the divine Teacher of a religion leaves. Christianity too was not
spared. But ultimately, the central tenets of moral and ethical guidelines are the same, for they came the same source - our common Creator, and thus
our common grounds of common aims in life.
Therefore, if the ignorant continues only to alienate the muslim community, which shares the same common ground with the rest of mankind, the
Jihadists and the persian apostate infidel Khamenei would have won, and greater bloodshed will be spilt, not just by this generation, but the next as
Only the truth can set us all free, not ignorances or manipulation of religion for personal glory and gain.
Once the jihadists - taleban, radical militants,Khamenei and his hizbollah butchers are isolated and shown in reality of what they really are, there
will no support for them by the muslim majority, and no sane youth will join in their abominable causes. With them just a small pack, a few drones
will exterminate them once and for all, if they refused to end their violence and face justice.
As for negotiating with the Taleban, there is no need to. My hopes for peace from them ended when they suicide bombed even peace envoy clerics. The
Taleban are not muslims for sure, but only in the pay of someone else - proxies of either Pakistan or Iran or even both on part-time basis. If the
west or afghanistan want peace - its the taleban's masters that are the ones to either talk to or whack them if they refuse talking.
Pakistan and Iran are the only 2 nations on Earth today that uses PROXIES to destablise, invade and wage war upon other nations for decades. Their
cunning charade is only far too plain to see in daily events around the world today. They fooled not many. May they give it up and come clean, or it
will only lead to their own doom as even more of their despicable doings are revealed.
