“Those yearning for a ‘Muslim Martin Luther’ don’t realize there are Muslim Martin Luthers all over the place, and they’ve been fomenting religious oppression and cruelty in the Middle East and terrorism abroad for generations now.” p. 238I have always been mystified by people who call Islam a religion of peace. They obviously have only read the Readers’ Digest translation of the Koran which was prepared by undercover Muslims for gullible snowflakes. The only peace that Islam offers to the world is a peace based on submitting to slavery or accepting death. The idea is that the grave is very peaceful.
And I have wondered what carousel people fell off of when they claim that Islam needs to be reformed. That is what the “kill the infidel” of jihad is all about. Those involved in the violence are the reformers. They feel that Islam has drifted into the state that Christians feel about the United Methodist Church. They think the average Muslim is a Muslim in name only and a clone of the dominant culture.
So don’t root for the reformers of Islam. They want sharia to be your next experience in law.
