Islam solution - say nothing

"If you mock Islam with a drawing or a novel, you get riots and dead people. News of mishandled holy books yields riots and dead people. Insufficiently reverent short films by a Dutchman yields a dead person, specifically the Dutchman.

Now we add this detail: Quoting medieval religious colloquies is a reasonable justification for burning churches, shooting a nun and holding up signs demanding that the pope convert to Islam or saw off his own head. (There have been reports of carpal tunnel syndrome among radical Islam's enforcers, and they have requested we all help out.)

This is a new twist: Now history itself cannot be discussed. Since it's difficult to predict what else will enflame the devout, Islam has to be treated with unusual deference, like a 3-year-old child with anger management problems."

If criticism provokes such a reaction then the religion deserves the criticism.

The truth of the matter is that Islam as a whole has not defined itself as a Religion of Peace. Therefore, the objective is to destroy Jihad and make Islam a Religion of Peace.

Jihad does not equal violence!!! Most Muslims are peaceful people and disagree with the extremists, we just hear the coverage of all the violent protests, which actually in reality aren't that many in relation to the whole Muslim world, but the media makes it seem much more broad than it really is.

Jihad is an inner struggle, it is a personal journey to find God/Allah...that's how the majority of Muslims view it.

stop spreading reason -- if you do, the Republicans might not win the 2006 elections. all they've got left is nativism, fear, and vaguely racist, islamophobic hints at an upcoming "war of civilizations."

Yes, we all know there are peace-loving Muslims out there. That's not the point.

That's what they tried to sell me, too.

Are you saying that the violent Muslims are in the majority?

No, but the majority in the Muslim world have been fed enormous falsehoods about the Western World.

Such as we have about them. This is the part so many of you don't get.

Correction: that is the part YOU THINK many of us don't get.

We all agree that Islam is supposed to be a religion of peace.
We all wish for Islamic terrorism to go away.
We all know that there are many peace-loving Muslims.

But then there are the 1960s regressives who distort these truths in order to backwash the merits of going after those who kill innocent people.

Many of who?

Oh yes, the many of Americans who don't think that it's just infidels who take to Koran out of context.
