Ergo Islam is a huge THREAT to everyone else. The more "pure" a
Moslem > is,
the less likely they are to put up with YOU.
Islam is a religion, but it's as varied as Christianity. And about the
most extreme are the Wahhabis, which is the sect promoted by the Saudis.
Islam is a malicious virus in the human network.
islamism is a backward religion...socialism is an even more
"Socialism" often claims to be based on Christianity,
the concept of "Christian charity" especially. It's good
and moral to improve the lot of the poor.
However that Jesus guy never said that institutionalized
theft and govt micro-management was the way to go
about it. The State should NOT rob Peter to pay Paul ...
Peter should be encouraged to do so, but isn't actually
obligated. And if Peter thinks Paul is a hopeless bum,
he can help out Luke instead. Paul isn't necessarily
deserving, entitled to, Peters help.
As for Islam ... it *is* a problem right now. Dangerous
to others, destructive and expensive. A hostile meme,
a mind-virus, that too easily leads to a really scary brand
of fanaticism. Nothing more dangerous than people who
think they're "doing gods will" by slaughtering others.
The long-secularized "west" isn't used to that sort of
thinking anymore ... doesn't get it. That leads to errors.
For NOW "Islam" remains an annoyance for the most
part. However the increasing volume, sophistication
and power of numerous primarily-Islamic countries
is changing that picture. Already Pakistan has nuclear
weapons AND the means to deliver them and Iran
probably does too by now. Egypt and Iran also have
large and well-equipped conventional armies.
Egyptians DID elect a president from the Islamic
Brotherhood. Pakistan is always in danger of an
Islamist take-over ... meaning you-know-who would
get control of the nukes. IMHO India would have to
launch a pre-emptive attack if Islamists took over
So, both the extremist sentiment AND the means
to persue it exist in the Islamiverse right now. That
"annoyance" can turn into a huge, very real, threat
any time now.
