    This “lady” simply made the very sin and err of thought of her supposed detractors and could no see it; ie, she confused the fact that most of the Arab world is Muslim, yet not every Muslim is an Arab. Which is the same to say that not every Arab is a Muslim. Affirmative logic 101; I mean, not even college stuff, but basic high school nowadays. Also because obv there exist a subset of moderate people that are obv not as extreme and fanatical in their point of view; doesn’t imply that the other group would not either attack us, or them, at any given moment. We should be prepared; and denouncing it. Not doing so is not only morally wrong; it’s eventual virtual suicide; and even more obv stupid. So not stating this basic truth in the sake of some public, dubious and bias “political correctness” is a no-nobrainer deal. In order to do so; I’d have to be aware that I’m either selling out my people, my system of belief, and my freedom; or be a very easy persuadable weaked minded fool. I obv chose neither… Her apologetic efforts inc a notch and her second reply is much better constructed; yet still flawed in many points. More noticeable to me are the fact that to her you were never a “true muslim”, and that you were obv somehow miraculously spared to send a senseless message of “love my slaying conqueror”. And just for the record; I think that drug control is a stupid policy that creates more harm that good; but that’s just me, IMHO. Just like the police brutality at the end, it’s more of an excuse for them to beat people up anyhow. It’s rather obv that you have to stand up to your aggressor or he will never stop pounding you. More basic life stuff and common sense. Groupal self defense if you’d like. Even assuming that she’s genuine going about it; kindness will seldomly work to turn someone like that around. If she’d actually try that IRL she’d get herself killed so fast that she’d never see the stones flying towards her. It’s commendable that she wants to try it in a positive way; but still, it’s her funeral… Again, statistical suicide. And finally about that, those Drs dudes sure sound like some real party mood killers to me. You should introduce them to Sima. I’m sure they’ll get along just fine; regardless of the outcome 😉 And of course your rebuttals are way better. Indeed, the err of PC is applying to the other persons an attribute you posses that they may not necessarily have. Hence confrontation is inevitable, specially if it’s being sent your way. The disease that is Islam could have been stopped relatively easily until recently. But now; this very day; there are protesters demanding that the US opens its border in lieu of some famous GOP candidate remarks (DT) People think that the cops, the government, or whatever, will protect them; but effectively they’ll turn against the very people they swore to protect. At the end of the day, you can only rely on yourself. And respect for the rest of another very good article… 😉

  2. In search of the one true religion: save yourself first and then try to save others and the world.

    Many Muslims from the East may much talk about “the racism of the West. Nevertheless, they really have no room to talk about the subject of the evils of “racism.” This is because their “holy book” ,the Koran is very racists against the Jewish people. For example, the Koran teaches the Jews are decedents of “swine and apes.” As found in the Koran in 2:65.7:166;5:60. Likewise,many Muslims have from reading the words of the Koran a hateful spirit for the Jewish people. So if Muslims talk about the “racism of the West” they should and need to examine the racism of Islam .For Islam is full of anti-Jewish racism. Moreover ,to apply to this topic the ancient Greek philosopher ,Socrates, was reported to have said “An unexamined life in not worth living.” This same may apply to the subject of religion. Which would then be “An unexamined religion is not worth believing in.”

    As for the topic of “The rise of racism in the West.” As the title of the above article reads , it thus needs to be made clear the Islam is not, nor ever has it been a race. One of the many ways that Islam may be actually defined is that “Islam is a religious/ political system of tyrannical mind control that has total power over the thoughts and lives of millions of people around the world.” Which that stated ,it’s therefore very fitting to site the wisdom found in the words of Thomas Jefferson. For his words apply to this subject. For Mr. Jefferson had declared “I have sworn upon the alter of God eternal hostility against all forms of tyranny over the minds of men.”

    Unfortunately, because of the illegal Iraqi war and the mess in Libya, we in the West are loathe to use full military strength in Syria. But how else do with destroy ISIS? Also, how do we destroy an enemy when our political wimps won’t even name the enemy?

    Ali, there is no place to comment on “peeling back the layers Taquiya”, so I’m putting it here. I think you are wrong about Maajid Nawaaz. You are also wrong about Judaism. There are plenty of Jews (Ultra-Orthodox) who believe fervently that the Bible is THE Word of God himself. Then there are the “moderates”; Conservative and Reform Jews, who take a more practical approach to their religion. I should know as I’m one of them. I do not believe the planet is a mere 5776 years old for example.

    You have stated (I believe) that Islam cannot be “reformed”. That ISIS itself is the essence of that “reformation”. I agree with you. But you have also stated that Muslims CAN be reformed; and I think that Maajid is a perfect example of just that. He puts his life on the line for apostasy every time he opens his mouth. That says much more than any letter he may write to you. That’s how I see it. And as much as I laud your blog it would be unseemly for me not to point out that the Maajids of this world are what will move us all forward to peace.

    Fight the ideologues with Truth. Fight the violence with Force. Amen.

    I don’t want to read any article that preaches political correctness on this website. I believe political correctness has opened the gates of Christian Europe for the barbarian Muslims to invade the continent. Muslims never leave their religion and convert to another faith. We know Islam and Nazism are the same, and that is why Adolf Hitler made the following statements:
    “The Mohammedan religion [Islam] too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?”

    Hitler is absolutely right! Islam is compatible with Nazism in maiming, gassing, and slaughtering human beings. And that is why thousands of Muslim refugees prefer to come to Germany to going to other countries.

    We also need to acknowledge that for many muslims their religion is bound up with their cultural identity, It is not reasonable to expect them to discard all that at once. They cannot be expected to convert to a western version of Christianity (or atheism or agnosticism for that matter). We need to offer them a route through eastern versions of Christianity. That will not be such a big cultural jump.

  11. Ali Sina – I have such respect for you. Even on issues we see differently, I still admire how you put your opinion forward. You express yourself with such elegance and grace, without being even remotely soft in how willing you are to face Islam dead-on and call for it’s defeat. Thank you.

    Dear Ali, Alleluia. It’s the first time you write that you’re a Christian. Before, you wrote that you’re not a Christian, only a follower of Jesus. Congratulation. Praise The Lord.
