Whenever I begin to question my attitude towards Islam, a new story emerges that reinforces my earlier opinions. The last couple of days I saw two stories that exemplify the savagery of Islam. The first one came from Afghanistan where a young couple that fell in love and eloped despite the man being engaged, was captured, tried and stoned to death all in the course of one hour. No trial, no evidence, no extenuating circumstances and no appeal.
The next story came form the Wahhabi kingdom of Saudi-Arabia where the family of a man who was left paralyzed after a fight, asked a judge to have the attacker paralyzed under the doctrine of "an eye for an eye." The judge has began the search for doctors to perform surgery that would damage the spinal cord of the accused, despite the fact that he has already served time in prison for the crime he was accused of committing.
This is not a punishment that is promoted by a specific brand of Islam, it is Islam, a religion where any attempt at reform is meted with death.
If we removed God from the Koran, what we have left is a philosophy of hatred that makes Mein Kampf look like a progressive book. And the mainstream media continues to describe the majority of Muslims as peace loving. Where are the statistics to support this? The silence of more than a billion Muslims is enough enough evidence of their support and compliance with the violent edicts of Islam.
Isn't it time that we called it like it is? Islam is incompatible with Judeo-Christian philosophy and it is a threat to Western civilization. Muslims who live by the tenets of their religion should stay as far away as possible from the regions of the world that they so despise.
