Evangelist tells the truth about Islam

We read:
"A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today requested a meeting with Christian evangelist Franklin Graham to discuss his latest remarks attacking Islam.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said it has received a number of complaints from concerned Muslims who watched an interview last night on CNN during which Graham stated in part: "...we have many Muslims that live in this country. But true Islam cannot be practiced in this country. You can't beat your wife. You cannot murder your children if you think they've committed adultery or something like that, which they do practice in these other countries... I don't agree with the teachings of Islam and I find it to be a very violent religion."

There are many examples of what Graham described so I don't see what CAIR has got to protest about. Truth hurts, I suppose.

Make no mistake, Islam is not a peaceful religion. It cannot exist in the United States under current U.S. Constitutional law. For Islam to flourish in the U.S., Sharia law must be imposed, resulting in the persecution of all non-Muslims. It is inevitable unless we put a stop to it. But that will be an extremely difficult task given the over-tolerance that the Left breeds.

How come these muslims never protest in their own country? Could it be because whining and protesting here is so profitable? It's also very convenient how they use only certain parts of islam, while ignoring the other parts that call for world domination and the death of all non-believers.

Demanding death for non-believers makes islam a cult, not a religion. And it should be treated as such.

Because they like their heads to remain on their shoulders.

Anon 304am: To be fair, there are Muslims protesting in the streets of Iran. Protesting their own horrible, repressive government. And that government is cracking down in the manner that leftists accused the Bush administration of, but could never prove. If the Iranian government does not relinquish some of its control, they lose all of it when the people of Iran rebel. I wish the Iranian protesters well, may their efforts prove fruitful.

There are some muslims against radical Islam, but they face persecution from the jihadis themselves.

That may be true Bobby but Islam itself teaches violence... that's difficult to overcome

You may be right Bobby, but so far, the only muslims we see are either wearing a bomb vest, or are here, living the good life and complaining about us because we don't like muslims who wear bomb vests.

Fact: Islam = death to non-Muslims

Let the fact speak for itself.

Muslims are so tribal and partisan that they will not accept facts - as seen after the muslim who was very recently arrested right outside the house of the danish cartoonist which he had entered trying to kill him, and now reported by some muslims in denmark to be just a fake plot to justify continued persecution of muslims .

Hey, doesn't that make them liberals?

Specifically, because in Muslim countries, dissent against the ruler is viewed as also being dissent against God, and therefore blasphemy. And Muslims consider death the only suitable penalty for blasphemy.

---Well, most moderate muslims don't make waves, unless they happen to be authors like this woman. She has faced a bit of persecution from her own community:

"Irshad Manji calls herself a Muslim refusenik. "That doesn't mean I refuse to be a Muslim", she writes, "it simply means I refuse to join an army of automatons in the name of Allah". These automatons, Manji argues, include many so-called moderate Muslims in the West. In blunt, provocative and deeply personal terms, she unearths the troubling cornerstones of Islam as it is widely practised: tribal insularity, deep-seated anti-Semitism and an uncritical acceptance of the Koran as the final, and therefore superior, manifesto of God. In this open letter to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, Manji breaks the conspicuous silence that surrounds mainstream Islam with a series of pointed questions: "Why are we all being held hostage by what's happening between the Palestinians and the Israelis? Who is the real coloniser of Muslims - America or Arabia? How can we read the Koran literally when it's so contradictory and ambiguous? Why are we squandering the talents of women, fully half of God's creation?" Not one to be satisfied with merely criticising, Manji offers a practical vision of how Islam can undergo a reformation that empowers women, promotes respect for religious minorities and fosters a competition of ideas. Her vision revives Islam's lost tradition of independent thought. This book should inspire Muslims worldwide to revisit the foundations of their faith. It might also compel non-Muslims to start posing the questions we all have about Islam today. In that spirit, "The Trouble with Islam" is a clarion call for a fatwa-free future."

Hmmm - she certainly has her work cut out, let's hope she has the equivalent luck of the Berlin Wall collapsing.
