Every generation faces new and different problems. You and I will be in the ground when this one finally arrives - yet it is up to us to figure out now how best to deal with it. Islam is referred to as a religion but it is much more than that. It is an entire way of life based on civilization as it was hundreds of years ago. Since it is so intertwined with laws, rules, ethics, morals and psychology - I prefer to think of it as a POLITICAL SYSTEM rather than a RELIGION.
Islam, as a political system, is a ruthless, bloody, medieval way of life - and not acceptable. Regardless, we must find some way to deal with it's increasing numbers. Muslims will soon dominate our modern and sophisticated societies whether we like it or not. That means it's crucial and urgent that we devise NOW a plan to accommodate the transition.
1. Can it be done?
2. If so, how?
CAUTION: I have not verified that all of the information
in this video is accurate. I think it is, but
it needs to be checked out. Bump
From my pedestrian point of view I think we must first FACE THE INEVITABLE FACT that Muslims will outnumber non-Muslims in Europe very soon, and in North and South America a few years later. If it is not acceptable to modern societies in it's present form, Islam will have to change to be accepted. Since it is a huge religious/political/social and legal system, perhaps it is more practical to encourage the change in just one element at a time.
Let's look at it from America's point of view. Since Americans accept virtually ALL religions (except those advocating intrusion their neighbors), perhaps a peaceful dialog with leaders of Islam could initiate changes to make it acceptable to infidels? For example:
1. If Americans could convince Islam to drop
their advocacy of MILITANTdomination of
all non-Muslims, they might convince all
infidels that the religion of Islam has merit
making it certainly more acceptable.
2. Americans have their own peculiar republican
democracy and they will vigorously defend it.
3. Muslims that choose to live and work in America:
a. must agree to live under American
laws and not Sharia Laws,
b. agree to become citizens with loyalty
to America only,
c. and agree to learn English, the common
language of America.
Despite all of the recent terrorism, I can't believe that Muslims or Non-Muslims want another shooting war.
North and South Americans and Europeans must learn how to get along with peaceful religious Muslims. Perhaps they, the NON-RADICAL intellectuals and theocratic leaders of Islam, could be convinced that it is in Islam's interest to modernize (change) and join the other peaceful religions of the world. It doesn't sound impossible, does it?
It stands to reason that convincing the RADICAL FUNDAMENTALIST MUSLIMelement of Islam will be considerably more difficult. I would suggest that it would be substantially easier if the NON-RADICAL MUSLIMS were to be on our side in this.
At least, in America, I believe our peaceful Muslim friends and neighbors do not condone or approve of the radical terrorists in their midst - but it is very difficult for them to safely condemn the terrorists. They have no forum or organization, yet they have embraced civilization and put the bloody past of Islam back in the history books. I submit that if these fine Muslim neighbors had a suitable and protective forum to help America, they would.
