A Message to Islam
A Message to Islam:
First, let me say that the American people, on the whole, do not have a problem with Muslims and their religion. You, however, may be drastically changing that opinion, by your silence and inaction. What we do have a major problem with is your extremists and the fact that you do not police them yourselves. Every religion and every nation has extremists, that is true. It is also true that each of these groups or nations should consider themselves solely responsible for policing themselves to prevent such radical outbursts. That is where you fail. Is there a written or unwritten law amongst you that says you cannot criticize another Islamist? Americans criticize our own weaknesses all the time. It is a fundamental right to do so and an obligation on our part. We have not enforced as often as we need to the fight against corruption in our government and now we are paying for that. You will also pay for the neglect of self-regulating your people. Rest assured of that.
We, as Americans, believe in freedom of religion and tolerance. Do you realize that you are fostering MORE INTOLERANCE amongst us by not speaking out and acting AGAINST your own radical extremists? When you allow burning of our Bibles, do not consider it a weakness that we do not retaliate in the streets. When one burns your Koran, you allow extremism and lack of self-control to disturb peace on a worldwide basis. Is this being a good neighbor to anyone? No. Is it being responsible? No. Does it show strength? Certainly not. It shows an overall lack of emotional strength and self-discipline. It is strongly akin to a child throwing a tantrum when he cannot have his way. Islam is seen as a spoiled child by much of the world, who simply want to live at peace with their neighbors.
Make no mistake that when the day comes that it happens here, in our nation, there will be a backlash that you have not counted on. But then you seemingly don't care if innocent and law-abiding Muslims die because of the few of you who lack integrity and discipline, do you? Even your women are now standing up against the abuses you press upon them because of your silence or compliance to inequality traditions. You see the world through distorted glass. You do not lie to one another, by law, but it is no sin to lie to those you want to convert to your faith? What kind of example is that? May Allah be merciful to you for THAT ideology, for I do not accept it nor do I understand it. Would you not be better off to raise a moral standard that sets an example others will want to follow, not out of fear but out of admiration? On that we could agree with you and even join in such efforts.
While I personally may not be the best example of a Christian, it does not in the least cloud my eyes as to who are the best examples of Islam. Conversion by force is Satan's plan and will never work here, so do not even try. You will be met with that which your women and children will cry over and there will be no reward in Heaven for those who steal peace from the earth when they could have set proper examples of reponsible adult behavior. Who wants to listen to the neighborhood bully? It is time to stop throwing childish temper tantrums and grow up.
