Islam is not benign, peaceful, loving or accepting as its adherents, Islamists, would have you believe. It is anything but benign, peaceful, loving or accepting now, nor has it ever been benign, peaceful, loving or accepting in the 1,400 years that have gone by since it first came into being.
It is rather a completely proscribed way of life covering every aspect of a persons existence, including their thoughts. There is no room for anything but conformity in it and woe betide anyone who doesn’t conform to its dictates, whether they are an adherent or not. Deception, hatred, violence, cruelty, misogyny, submission, supremacism, expansionism and conquest are intrinsic to it and part of its nature and essence. That is the simple, unvarnished truth and all one has to do is look at Islam itself and how it manifests itself in the world and has always manifested itself in the world honestly, objectively and knowledgeably to see that this is so. The record is clear and undeniable if one cares to look at it with open eyes.
An excellent place to begin looking at Islam itself and how it manifests itself in the world and has always manifested itself in the world would be with the article entitled Hating All Infidels in the February 6, 2014 edition of Canada Free Press. It is both an excellent eye-opener and an excellent base to begin your examination. All over the world Islamists are trying to keep anyone from exposing Islam for what it really is, to suppress honest discussion or examination about it in any way, shape or form, to bully and intimidate critics into silence. Many of those who do speak out about it or who do attempt to present an honest picture of it suffer terrible consequences, up to and including getting themselves killed. Canada Free Press deserves congratulations for publishing the article and so does the person who wrote it. Both took a great deal of courage. We need more of the same in the media, especially the mainstream media. Since you’re already here, you may like to begin your examination by reading various posts on this site, perhaps beginning with the August 5, 2011 post entitled A primer on Islam on the eve of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
In any case, start examining and then start acting, and insist that your politicians and officials start acting too…do everything legally within your means to beat back encroaching Islam and keep Islamists and Islam from entirely taking over your life, your children’s life, your communities life and your country’s life. Make no mistake and don’t harbor any illusions…Islamists and Islam will do exactly that unless they are stopped and the gains they have already made reversed.
