Other than passing acquaintances and working relationships before I retired, I have never really known or befriended any Moslems. Nor have I ever visited any Islamic lands. So this is a 30,000 foot view of the subject, from someone who has only learned what he could learn about them from a remote distance.
Using the Koran as a primary source of information, and using history as a secondary source, I feel comfortable in stating that Islam itself is barbaric, and only under "Secular" governments, in which the Islamic religion is not also the law, have Islamic lands ever been other than barbaric.
And therein lies the real problem: Islam insists that Islam is the law. The only law, and that all other forms of law are invalid.
And so any time the Islamic religion is allowed to operate inside any nation governed by any non-Islamic form of government, that nation has within itself a growing revolutionary entity whose very purpose for being is to eventually displace and replace the nation's government and system of law, one way or another.
That's just the way it is.
I would surmise that the only Moslems who might reject Islamic barbarity for another religion or another legal system are the older ones who remember the golden days of cities like Beirut, and the Shah's Iran. And those who are weak in the Islamic faith, and who recognize the barbarity in it for what it is. And they still face the problem of incurring an automatic death sentence upon themselves if they convert out of Islam.
Now, you may call me an Islamophobe or whatever for calling Islam barbaric. But any religion that encourages acts of terror, murder, piracy, slavery and plunder to be committed against and among non-believers is, I maintain, barbaric. As is "honor" slaying. As in, for instance, a father slaying a disobedient child, on his own. In all civilized lands, that sort of thing is known as murder. Not in Islam.
I got to know several Vietnamese when I served there, and generally, all they wanted was to be left alone to live under their own duly elected government, and not be subjected to Communism. Some were Catholics, most where Buddhists, all wanted the same thing: Freedom from Communist domination. And safety, from Communist infiltration and terrorism. There, too, the enemy was often able to sneak into the ranks and pass as loyal soldiers until some critical moment.
If any vets of Middle Eastern conflicts know or have known any Moslems who don't fit the mold I have described above, please enlighten me. The Kurds, for instance, have been loyal allies against other Moslems. But they're still Moslems. At the root, they're still anti-Infidel, with a long history of persecuting Christians.
Can any long-term friendship be formed where one party is Moslem, of any variety whatsoever, and the other Party is Christian or Jew? If the Moslem remains a Moslem, will his own religion not one day induce him to turn on his infidel friends, as Islam itself insists that he must?
It's a question I felt needed to be asked.

If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

The Purpose of this grouping of links is to organize articles exposing the fraud of Islam as a religion and Mohammed as a prophet.
The Islam Pages
With war declared on the whole non-Islamic world in the year 622 A.D., no one should have been surprised at Osama Bin Laden's declaration of war in 1966. Mohammed himself declared war on us long before we existed as a nation. To find the true source of the "radicalization" of peaceful Moslems into Jihadism, all you have to do is read the Koran. It's all right there, and there is nothing radical about it.
The Islam Pages: Setting the record straight for the non-Islamic world. The Islam Pages describe the war declared upon us all by Mohammed after the Hijrah in 622 AD.
"Civilized" Islamic Nations versus the True Islamic Religion. When Politics drives Religion in Islamic Nations, the whole world is safer; when Religion drives Politics in Islamic Nations, the whole world is menaced.
On the necessity of using Barbarian Allies against the worst Barbarians. Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other Moslem nations so fear ISIS that they will ally with despised America and Israel against it. But never forget that Barbarian Allies are still Barbarians, at the core.
Civilized Moslems: Ataturk's Turkey and the Shah's Iran had them. Once, Civilized Moslems, Educated Women and Peaceful, Attractive, Beautiful Cities predominated in lands where now we see little other than Typical Islamic Barbarity.
The Islamic Connection between ISIS, Random Terrorism and Global Jihad. It is the unseen Islamic Connection that is conquering Western Civilization: The Known Terrorist Groups, Native Born Convert Terrorists, Global Jihadists, etc. are all Moslems who read the same Koran.
The sole path to Islamic Heaven is to die a martyr in performance of Jihad. That's it. Islam assures no one else of salvation. Male martyrs get a permanent erection; female martyrs get a permanently erect penis. No kidding.
The Looming Islamic War: Sunni, ISIS, Shia, Kurds, Russia, Israel, USA? Sunni nations allying with Israel against ISIS? Excuse me? Shia nations allying with Russia? Who's on First here?
The Source of Radical Islamic Terrorism? Mohammed and the Koran. Radical Marxist Terrorism comes out of the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. Similarly, Radical Islamic Terrorism comes right straight out of the Koran.
Should we treat Islam differently than other religions? If not, why not? Doesn't Islam treat the whole non-Islamic world differently than it treats Islam?
Refuting Mohammed and his ideology of conquest masquerading as a religion. Here we refute Mohammed, who should be seen as little more than a popular fraud among pagans.
The "Palestinian Problem" is just an Evil Mask; it's really an "Islam Problem". There was no state or nation of Palestine when modern Israel was born. It was Islam, not Palestine, that attacked Israel in 1948.
The Truth about Islam, finally, in a homily at Mass. You never hear the unvarnished truth about Islam, or other evils, from Catholic clerics. Maybe that's finally changing.
American survival itself depends on getting Islam out of America. Cult forms Culture; Islam forcibly attacks all non-Islamic cultures. American national existence depends upon getting Islam out.
Recognizing, at last, the Islamic Declaration of War on Human Civilization. Congress should Recognize the long existing Islamic Declaration of War, and Declare War against ISIS and all other active Islamic Jihad organizations.
The common link between Paris, San Bernardino, 9/11, etc.: Islamic Jihad. It was common, ordinary, every day Jihad. No one was radicalized; nothing was hijacked; no one went berserk.
The argument within Islam, and about Islam, regarding the true nature of Islam. The true nature of Islam: Ron Paul, King Saud, Ali Khamenei, Comrade Obama, all have their versions.
The French Islamophobia: Was it real? Or is Islam really something to be feared? If the French Islamophobia turns out to have been warranted, what about ours?
What would War on Islam look like? Would victory even be possible? With what successful overall strategy could we wage war on an ideology?
Definition of Islam: Ideology of Military Conquest Masquerading as a Religion. The Definition of Islam describes the “Convert, Submit or Die” War Strategy of Mohammed.
The Islam Way Versus The Way of the Lord, and the way of Western Culture. The Islam Way stands at loggerheads with the moral, social and civil codes historically common to Judeo-Christian, Western Civilization.
How Orthodox Mainstream Islam Opposes America, and all other National Existence. Islam's Lesser Jihad seeks to (1) Convert All, or (2) Subjugate All, or (3) Kill All. Islam opposes America and American national existence.
The hard, cold, truth about the murderous nature of the religion of Islam. Islam is a religion of Peace? Excuse me? If that's true, then you must agree that Islam has a very funny way of showing it.
OK, the strictly Koranic Islamic teaching on infidels isn't TOTALLY murderous. A changing view on the Islamic teaching on infidels, and other important issues this political election season.
The Islamic Theocracy menace Vs. the U.S. Constitution First Amendment. How to attack the expanding Islamic Theocracy here while remaining true to the Constitution: SANE may have found the way.
Could we, and should we, outlaw Islamic Sharia in the US? Our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion; but what of a "religious law" legal system that has a core goal of the destruction of our Constitution itself?
Can we outlaw Islam in the USA and still be a free thinking society? I say we can and should outlaw any ideology that seeks the elimination of Constitutional America.
Again, it's Israel up against what appears to be the whole pea-picking world. Weak lip-service and pretty speeches aside, America is Israel's only real ally. And, as war is imposed upon her again, even many Americans are lukewarm in their support. Why?
The latest Israeli conflict is little different from all the previous ones. The first Israeli conflict with her neighbors, and every one since then, has been a simple matter of self defense.
Faith And Reason Vs. Islam: A Pontiff on faith and reason again, and again, etc. It is and has always been faith and reason vs. Islam; Islam is unreasonable, it's faith equals submission, and it is by nature violent and war-oriented.I
slam is the enemy; the non-Islamic world just doesn’t know it yet. I keep saying that Islam is the enemy here, and you keep not wanting to hear it. But it's true.
The Ground Zero Mosque. The ground zero mosque is an Islamic slap in the face of all 9/11 victims.
Tolerating intolerance of America is what Americans are being trained to do. In tolerating intolerance of themselves some Americans think they are proving something or other.
More concessions to the Palestinians? Do concessions run on a one way street? Israel is called to make more concessions to the Palestinians. It is never the other way round.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
Three fatal oversights of the top conservative cognizanti: Glenn, Rush and Sean. Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity are on the right track, but just nibbling around the edges of who the enemy is.
n support of American Nationalism and American Patriotism. American Nationalism and American Patriotism have been demonized long enough.
Argument opposing Sharia law as brutal, oppressive and murderous. Opposing Sharia Law means opposing brutal domination, wife beating, child abuse and even bloody murder.
Who "radicalized" the Boston Marathon Bomber brothers? It's the Koran, Stupid. Yes, it's the Koran, stupid, and it's mainstream Islam, and there's nothing radical about either of them.
Fair warning: Beware of the Moslem Liars holding olive branches and smiling. If you have Moslem friends, you need to learn about the religious Moslem Liars
War Begets War: It's About Islam; It Always Was. Undoing Islamic Lies of "Peaceful" Moslem Propagandizers.
Rethinking War on Islam: War on "parts" of Islam, or, Unlimited War. Rethinking War on Islam may mean a perpetual state of war, for Islam's evil cannot be separated out.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
