what we need to understand about islam and terrorism

I am not sure why, well correct that... I understand why people, which would include the media, politicians and many, simply uninformed, individuals would look at islam and muslims with a simultaneously awkward and hopeful gaze. It is a hard subject to approach on a number of levels, not the least of which is factually.

However, when scrutinized with an unflinching eye for facts one simple truth is revealed. islam and the koran promote intolerance, murder and subjugation of sexes and non-muslims. Is this all the koran espouses? No, of course not! Yet the most dangerous despots and harsh political systems of history have never achieved success and the ultimate depravity they have unleashed through single-minded origins.

One of the key elements that people mistake in approaching this subject is the core understanding of what islam truly is. Many Westerners view it as a religion, in fact, numerous weak-willed leaders refer to it as 'a great religion of peace and tolerance'. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Muslims and apologists will deny this by showing parts of the koran that do, indeed, advocate peace and tolerance. What they will not show you, either through ignorance or deceit is the portions of the koran that were written later than these early more tolerant elements. The latter portions of the koran invalidate these earlier writings - literally and instead promote murder and oppression.

Islam is not a religion. It is a religious political movement with the goal of creating a world Caliphate where sharia law is the law over all and non-believers are either killed or made 2nd class citizens.

This would be akin to a Christian world government except the love thy neighbor part is changed to offer them a chance to convert then either kill or subjugate them.

Imagine how those who would consider this writing to be intolerant might react to the concept of a Christian government!!! Oppression they would scream! Backwards, bible-thumping idiots! And while I might agree with them in many ways and express the same opposition to such a notion, these same people/organizations will bend over backwards to simplify and minimize, even deny the truth that islam is a far more dangerous reality than the notion of a Christian world government.

How terrible! How intolerant! How racist! will be the cry of the unaware and pseudo intellectual elements of society. They will turn away as if at the site of blood or something unbearable to witness and all will again be well in their world of hybrid cars and NPR. (both of which I like by the way).

How wrong will be the cry of most muslims who will be either a)ignorant of their koran or b)all knowing of these truths and simply denying the obvious.

How true! will be the far smaller voice of former muslims or those with enough fortitude to wade through the cesspool of painfully awkward and sad truths that make this post factual.

For those that have been able to get this far and want to know more - the strange truth is out there and plain to see. If you are a peaceful muslim and pained by this writing I offer you my sympathy - I hope your side wins but your religion is lined up against you and you know this.
