Casualties of self-described religious warriors, 3000 unarmed victims were massacred on 9/11/2001. On March 11, 2004 hundreds of simple commuters in Madrid, Spain experienced the same fate, at the same hands, with 1400 left maimed. Israelis know intimately the nature and intents of Islam, while the children of Beslan, Russia had their up-close and personal introduction to ‘real Islam’ in 2004. These historical facts are simply indisputable. Muslim terrorists kill people in the name of their God, while vast numbers tolerate such actions. To civilized human beings, such acts in Gods name are a great sacrilege. Muslims, however, seem largely oblivious to the self-evident truth that the greatest blasphemers in any religion are those who appoint themselves God’s executioners.

Muslims seem to have enormous capacity to absorb huge contradictions and great hypocrisies, remaining completely unfazed. With nary a blink, moderates and extremists alike call monsters who target Jewish children in Israel ‘mujahedeen’ (holy warriors). Arab Muslim societies, instead of developing any empathy for the victims of Muslim terrorists, race backward into ever deeper superstition, bigotry, and a culture of blame which renders reformation impossible. Huge parts of the Muslim world are afflicted with what can only be called world-wide denial, if not a deep psychosis characterized by a false sense of superiority and irrational hatred of all others, particularly those capable of defending themselves.

If a small group of Muslim terrorists are humiliated in Abu-Graib prison, and all Muslims take it personally, gathering in great numbers to demand revenge. But the treatment of Iraqi western ‘collaborators’ by the prisoners ‘peers’ evokes little concern. If any American (non-Muslim) soldier were to be captured, is there any doubt as to his fate? Muslims around the world appear largely indifferent to the most in-humane treatment of infidels in Iraq. Many even relish videos and reports of atrocities as if it is some sort of Islamic national sport (”An American is killed with a road-side bomb, …score one for Muhammad!”)

Horrendous crimes are being committed by Muslim Arabs against their Muslim brothers, sisters, and children in Sudan, while a deafening silence is observed throughout the Arab world. Arabs know all about what is going on in Darfur, even Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya have started reporting some aspects of the crisis, but they don't react. Muslim public opinion with regard to the ongoing genocide has remained muted, causing barely an eyebrow to be raised. Yet had the slaughter targeted Arab Muslims perpetrated by Infidels, there would have been an uproar.

A poor Palestinian child in proximity to terrorists is unintentionally hurt in Israel and Muslims are incensed, but when hundreds of children are massacred in Beslan, those same sensitive Muslims seem to feel nothing, just go about their business as if nothing happened. The ‘best’ people also seem incapable of feeling pain for any of the hundreds of child victims of Palestinian homicide-bombers. When the victim is not Muslim, or insufficiently Muslim, hyper-sensitivity suddenly turns to mind-boggling apathy. With the knowledge that the victims in Beslan were not Muslim and the attackers were, acute empathy and compassion is instantly replaced with casual indifference. Yet if the attackers would have been non-Muslim and the children and their parents Muslim, is there any doubt protests and revenge attacks would have spanned the globe?

If a Palestinian is killed in Israel, even if he has been involved in hundreds of attacks against Jews, Muslims worldwide chant and demand revenge. Yet if hundreds or thousands of Spaniards in Madrid, or Americans in New York, are massacred, their stone-cold hearts feel nothing.

A U.S. Marine in Iraq kills a wounded terrorist, in a place where wounded terrorists are a fatal threat, and Muslims are mad as hell. But when vile Muslim murderers kill an helpless, benevolent woman serving poor and needy Iraqi Muslims for decades, Muslims can only say, "Bush and Blair are at fault."

Islamic politicians demand western societies show tolerance toward Islamic laws and customs. But when Dutchman filmmaker Theo Van Gogh was silenced by an Islamic assassin, the same voices suggest he brought such misfortune upon himself by insulting the words of the Qur’an. Islam crushes resistance, protest, and disobedience in all lands where it has the upper hand, while taking full advantage of protections of speech, religion, movement, and association in its ongoing efforts to make host lands ‘Islamic’. Playing a political game, spokespersons demand their adoptive societies show tolerance for the most intolerant, restrictive, harsh, cruel, misogynist and reactionary ideology in human history.

The ‘Red-Crescent’ was formed to be an answer to the western ‘Red-Cross’, yet it follows strict Islamic doctrine in limiting its services to Muslim Brothers and Sisters. When terrible, brutal things happen to non-believers anywhere, at the hands of Muslims or not, shoulders are shrugged as they say “it is the will of Allah”. But such antipathy disappears when Muslims strike a blow maiming any part of a population of non-believers, say …Americans, Indians, Russians, Jews, Australians, Italians, Spanish, Brits, Philippines, etc etc. Such malice serves as proof manifest that their ‘most compassionate, most-merciful’ Allah is indeed God. Hell, they seem to get the same warm giddy feeling of self-righteousness and superiority when Sunni and Shiite kill each other in large numbers.

Muslims throughout Europe and the US were enraged when Tariq Ramadan (an Islamic ‘intellectual’ with radical, anti-Christian, anti-American ideas) was denied a visa and so tenure at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Suddenly so many Muslims were terribly worried about stifling intellectual freedom. Of course no one thinks to ask just how many Christian or openly anti-Islamic scholars have jobs at Islamic universities, as such a question is unthinkable. It is amusing to see Muslim folk rise to promote diversity, freedom, moral values, or equality. Sort of like the owners of the sunken Titanic coming out to promote ‘Iceberg Awareness Week’.

The intractable problems embedded within Islamic doctrine and culture are often quite obvious, to anyone but Muslims who seem to have their Islamic blinders super-glued on. Whereas the rest of us usually see ourselves as humans first, Muslims see themselves as Muslims first. As such Islam is an anti-individual, anti-human religion, As in Gene Roddenberry's classical Star Trek ‘Borg’ culture, individuality and humanity become the first causality of ‘the Muslim collective’ (Ummah). Reinforced by the concept that they are the ‘best’ of people, the only individuals of worth to their Allah, they easily view all misfortunes of non-brothers as a good thing. Similarity, if any ‘Brother’ or ‘Sister’ is humiliated or hurt, it is an evil thing, doubly so if the misfortune comes at the hands of vile non-believers. Such feelings are not attenuated by the fact that Muslim suffering if usually a natural consequence of the acts of Muslim militants. As they pile one misfortune after another upon themselves and their communities, in the Muslim collective they easily escape all culpability. Islam offers them a Teflon theological/psychological shield from guilt or regret. Being neither blind or stupid, they plainly see the blood on their own hands, yet remain unmoved in sincere belief that Allah is pleased at such a spectacle. With introspection unlikely, the prospects for enlightenment remain dim.

In many lands, Muslims danced in the streets when 3000 innocent Americans were killed. Today, many worldwide take glee witnessing the various beheadings, and bodies drug and hung over the Euphrates river. Tongues click in many ‘peaceful’ households for what passes as spirituality to these miserable people. George Orwell, an expert in ‘groupthink’, said it correctly: "There are spectacles before which even satire herself stands mute." Islamimaniacs strain and choke on a nat, yet an adult camel easily slides down their throat with no problem whatsoever.

In many parts of this country, you can hear both Muslims and other non-Christian groups discredit Jesus and the Bible. Muslims and others publicly mock Christians in school halls and communities. They do it openly, without fear of reprisals. Liberalism (the PC police) allow it, and the ACLU vigorously protect, if not encourage, Christian persecution. But the same groups, champions of individual rights and free speech, openly oppose any who suggest that Mohammed is a poor example of a prophet, or that Islam is the ideology and path of terrorism, calling it hate speech. An opinion on a religion is that, just an opinion, unless it is found to be remotely offensive to the delicate feelings of ‘peaceful’ Muslims. Now anything and everything, regardless if it has foundation in fact and history, can be regulated under Judicial oversight of ‘hate speech’. When Islam calls Jews ‘pigs’, or non-believers ‘Infidels’, and praises suicide bombers and Jihadists worldwide, …that is simply free speech. Anyone suggesting otherwise is called ‘Islamophobic’ or bigoted’. Apparently in Muslim culture the ‘Pot’ pretty regularly calls the ‘Kettle’ “black”, and no-one takes any notice. Muslims claim no one is allowed to criticize Islam and the Qur’an, essentially claiming principals of free speech are subservient to Islamic hyper-sensitivity to criticism. Pious Muslims tell us that critics of the teachings or person of Muhammad are blasphemers who have lost their right to live. Oh, …and Islam is a religion of ‘tolerance’ and ‘peace’.

Even our own ‘liberal’ Judicial system seems to agree with such nonsense, letting one group openly discredit and disparage another, yet not allowing the other group the same right and privilege. As the concepts of justice and equality are laid waste by such practices, does the word prejudicial come to mind? The scales of justice held by the blindfolded lady Justice can not help but become badly tipped when the standards are shifted from morality based on the ‘Ten Commandments’ to medieval Sharia concepts of jurisprudence. Does this sort of PC policing constitute state-sponsored bigotry? Are those who point to the realities of 1400 years of violent worldwide Jihad, and news and historical accounts of non-Muslim suffering at the hands of faithful Muslims, themselves bigots? Is all truth remotely connected to Islam and Muslims now to be censored, and regulated? Does this mean the eventual creation of an American Gulag, to be prepared to receive intellectuals, historians, Hindus, Christians, Jews, Atheists, and Agnostics found to have insulted hyper-sensitive Muslims?

Were the millions of victims persecuted by devout Muslims following the enshrined tenants of anti-Semitism, bigotry, and racism, themselves bigots deserving of their fates? Were the 3000+ infidels brutally murdered 9/11 deserving of their fate at the hands of Islam? Were they truly worthless and ‘unloved’ by Allah? Are Muslims really superior and entitled to the lands, wealth, and lives of non-believers?

In Iraq, nary a peep is heard as devout brothers kill while using a white flag as a cover, civilians are exploited as shields, or passers-by are blown apart with or without damaging the declared enemy. Add to this the deafening silence connected to hundreds of kidnapping of civilians, UN and NGO workers, and the decapitation of all such “prisoners.” In Muslim minds, condemnation is unthinkable for reasons of faith and a theology which dehumanizes non-Muslims, and with which many western elitists concur. Morally blind, Islamic apologists claim that normal outrage toward such actions are negated by invoking the ever effective liberal weapon of ‘moral relativism’. Undoubtedly, this kind of logic/response was first perfected in elementary school-yards when as children they responded to criticism by covering their ears and chanting “whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you!” The absence of outrage is foolish, cowardly, or at least an act of self-deception, if not the unintended revelation of a limited IQ. The desired effect is to water-down Islamic terrorist acts and render them ‘moral’. The only thing those making such lame arguments prove is that their own hearts and souls clearly lack normal human empathy, demonstrating they are in perfect moral harmony with the murderous inhuman monsters they excuse. Over and over they repeat “One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter” then sit back smugly oblivious that actually one mans terrorist, another mans terrorist! In fact, any man who worships or thinks like a terrorist justifying terrorist acts, is also a terrorist. Lost are those incapable of seeing and feeling the centuries of pain, suffering, and oppression connected with devout followers of Islam. Having little or insufficient basis in fact, and no moral compass to base any judgment, yet they feel perfectly qualified to viscously lash out with PC name calling and PC judgment. Name calling is, of course, devoid of logic or reason and only serves to prevent rational discussion which might lead to findings based on fact and the subsequent reasonable judgment based on the same. Name callers want everything to be bounced against PC standards with no basis but emotion, and often irrational emotion at that. By adopting the Islamic cause as their own, the Left is siding with a fascist enemy who is working to extinguish values they themselves claim to honor and best represent: women’s rights, gay rights, separation between religion and state, freedom from slavery, etc. etc.

Muslim spokesmen claim to oppose intolerance, then in the same breath attack anyone who exposes the extremism of any Muslim brother, calling him/her a ‘bigot’ and ‘Islamophobe’. To Muslim intellectuals, anyone critical of Islam is intolerant, yet it remains acceptable to exercise on such individuals extreme forms of intolerance, up to death. Indeed, dare complain about a very real history and culture of intolerance, and be called intolerant for even equating the word intolerance to such facts. Islamists play well the injured party, thereby sweeping all real issues under the carpet in a barrage of name-calling. Such antics are tactical, but meaningless as the poor ‘victim’ escapes having to engage in any real debate to try and defend the indefensible.

Muslims also play the ‘race’ card to deflect honest and fair debate as well as any group ever has. All the while Islam continues to persecute and subjugate people around the world, using the pen to project a false image opposite of reality, with the sword in the other hand cutting down new victims daily. As in all times, today there is great conflict between the sometime opposing principals of ‘free speech’ and ‘political correctness’. For some reason, our society obsessed with both these values can not yet call a Muslim bigot a bigot, or a Muslim liar a liar, or a Muslim anti-Semite an anti-Semite, or a Muslim murderer a murderer, or identify Muslim hypocrisy no matter how obvious, nor call Muslim traitors treasonous, and on, and on, and on... Free speech has become subservient to our cultural ‘thought police’. Hollywood icons, media elitists, liberals, and self described intellectuals willingly operate as unwitting tools of the Islamic misinformation campaign, remaining blissfully oblivious that in the Islamic vision of the final world order they would be the first targets. Should Islam ever take power in this country, they would be offered neither gratitude nor mercy for their earlier collaboration. They should remember what happened to the socialists, intellectuals, and communists who helped bring the Iranian Mullahs to power, …they were all slaughtered!

There is sufficient basis in theological fact based on their own sacred works, and further basis in both distant and recent history, to identify Islam as the most bigoted, intolerant, and racist religion in human history. The harm it has caused both believers and non-believers alike is greater than any political or religious movement in Human history. Yet the few brave authors and historians pointing to any subset of the innumerable examples of such harm are called bigoted by Muslim bigots. “Lies, lies!”, they scream, claiming conspiracy. If the perpetrator is not immediately available to be stoned or hung, the first line of response is to issue fatwa after fatwa calling for the death of all who insult Muhammad or Islam. How is it that an entire religious culture can continue to throw such adolescent tantrums, yet still hold sway in the minds of so many. Is it some sort of mysterious enlightenment unknown by those who have not yet accepted Muhammad as their prophet, or simply fear and/or ignorance. I would put my money on the latter, particularly after studying in detail the particulars of Islam the theology, Islam the political structure, Islam the economic system, and Islam the social culture (all different faces of the same Islam). What is really stunning is that so many believe in a doctrine to dominate and subjugate others, believing in a man who told them God sanctifies murder, slavery, lying, rape, arson, and thievery against other human beings (albeit non-believers), as acts of great piety which will be rewarded in Islamic heaven. Core Islam, ‘Real Islam’, teaches religious apartheid and promotes violence against non-Muslims. Slavery and persecution of every sort (based on religion, sex, and/or race) is rampant in Muslim cultures, including the many non-integrated Muslim communities in Western lands, yet the same group with the biggest problem continue to scream and complain the loudest.

Islam cannot be compared to other benign forms of religion, as there is really very little in common to compare outside of the term ‘religion’. Comparing Islam’s ethics, or its followers ‘acts’ to other religions, Islam does not have recognizable spiritual standards that can be called lofty. Many Muslims have been brainwashed since birth to believe that violent Jihad is the highest expression of personal spirituality. Indeed, any preview of its ethical precepts in relation to conduct toward non-Muslims are deplorable by any standard of human and civil behavior, …except Muhammad’s personal standards of Arab Imperialism expressed in the Qur’an and the Hadith. As such, with neither spiritual nor ethical precepts of a genuinely religious nature, and because it aims to conquer the world, it’s much more realistic to call it a political system. Politically correct or not…, sensitive or not…, the philosophy and methods of group control, otherwise known as Islam, is simply not a religion. We must stop trying to protect them from the truth, and hide from it ourselves. And why, exactly, should anyone really care about the ‘feelings’ of people following a cult seeking to kill us, our families, and dedicated to the destruction of everything we value. When they show a little empathy, sensitivity, and remorse for current and past atrocities, then perhaps we can approach our relationship with a little more delicacy. Until then, why tip toe about carefully worrying about their tender feelings? I mean, they aim to brutally kill us all anyway and take our young women as sex slaves, who cares if their feelings are a little hurt. Should not we all become much more concerned with our own tender feelings of survival, or the feelings of the tens to hundreds of millions of victims who in the past 1400 years suffered extreme horror, pain, humiliation, and death, at the hands of devout Muslims practicing Jihad. Instead of respecting and protecting it, shouldn’t their precious religion be mocked by all of humanity to avoid reinforcing their own silly grandiose feelings of superiority, which is at the root of their dangerous psychosis?

If Islam could possibly permanently cut-out huge sections of their sacred works, removing teachings related to slavery, polygamy, violence, and bigotry, then it may yet serve a positive role in the lives of its adherents. Absent that, it can only prevent the advancement of societies trapped in such nonsense, and represent a threat to human progress in general. The world can not and should not wait for Islam to spontaneously reform itself, as its own tenants prevent that eventuality. This corset of political correctness is way too tight and must be loosed, …before it kills us all. Of course, now I’M a ‘bigot’ for stating the obvious. (“No, … Muslims are bigots!” … No, YOU are the Infidel bogot” … “No, YOU are a much bigger bigot, and an IDIOT!” … “No you are a Zionist PIG, a racist, and a intellectual MORON!” … “No you are!” … “No YOU are! NAH nah NA NAH naaa” … “Whatever you say bounces off me and STICKS to YOU” … “LIAR! I’m going to KILL you, you infidel son a prostitute” … “I’m TELLING!” … And on, …and on, …and on…
