Critiques of Islam
If the evolution of Islam is truly found to be benign for infidels, then criticism is useless, and such criticism will eventually be relegated to the dust heap. If, however, Islam is lethal for infidels, deep criticism of it will be found to be both life and nation-saving. Unfortunately, there are 13 centuries of Jihadist activities that belie any supposed benign nature of Islam and Muslims.
If I am to bet my life and that of my children on the blathering of some apologists for Islam, or instead upon the cogent reasoning of a Robert Spencer and others as to the grave threat Islam represents to infidels--there is no contest.
The daily news exposes the horrors of jihad to each and every one of us, which confirms by Jihadist actions what Spencer has written. One has to be a fool to see and ignore the signs, and an even greater fool to stick one's head in the sand and hope it all blows over.
Any religion that fosters:
Hacking off heads
Hacking off hands and feet
Hacking out tongues
Gouging out eyes
Hacking off genitilia
Drilling into bodies of live people
Mutilation of corpses (or were they live?)
Rule by fear...
all of which we have been treated to on the news, TV and the web by Islamic fanatics or Jihadists, which bespeaks of nothing but 8th century barbarism in the 21st century.
