“Muslim fundamentalism” is the problem.
People who believe Mohammad’s core propositions for dealing with infidels.
- nonmuslims must be converted
- subjugated (taxed or enslaved)
since Islam doesn’t have a concept such as grace, the only way aa muslim an be assured of a peaceful afterlife is to die as a martyr in the process of contributing to the goals of a Muslim dominated culture by killing infidels.
Muslims who buy into these principles of Mohammad, expressed in the Quran and related literature. Mohammad’s history and legacy is one of banditry, arbitrary slaughter of innocent civilians, intolerance, persecution, sex slavery, pedophilia … there are probably a few other endearing characteristics that might readily come to mind if there were unlimited space and time. Mohammad was not a nice guy.
There are some sincere “good Muslims” who disregard the essence of his teachings and sincerely try to live a pious life, peacefully with regard for their neighbors. These are the real “radicals.” The others, the “fundamentalists” who try to live by the letter of this horrific, hateful “philosophy” eventually act it out in the slaughter of “infidels” and the perversion of any reasonable family values consistent with Natural Law–our human nature designed by our common Creator..
Muslims who are prepared to reject the evil teachings of Mohammad and adopt civilization, living in peace with the rest of us as equal human beings under a merciful god are the “radicals” the “apostates.”
For those who are faithful to the teachings, There will not be any “72 virgins.” Scholarly study has revealed this is a mistranslation. Sorry about that.
Here is a view if the situation described in Glenn Beck’s newsletter, the Blaze.:
Terror in Brussels: Traditional Islam, Not Radical Islam By Lori Updated 03/22/2016 | 11:44 AM EDT
Terrorists struck the city of Brussels today in a coordinated attack at the city’s international airport and subway system. At least 31 people have been reported killed. According the TheBlaze, European security officials have been bracing for a major attack for weeks, and warned that the Islamic State group was actively preparing to strike. The arrest Friday of a key suspect in the November attacks in Paris heightened those fears, as investigators said many more people were involved than originally thought, and that some are still on the loose. Glenn had some very stern words to share Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program. “I’m tired of hearing people say that this is radical Islam. No, it’s not. This is traditional Islam. Radical Islam is Zuhdi Jasser .
. . those radicals that want to change the basic fundamental aspects of the way Islam has been practiced in the Middle East for over 1,000 years,” Glenn said. The vast majority of Muslims in the Middle East — and those in power — want to kill people like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser who practice a peaceful version of Islam. Glenn likened Dr. Jasser to Martin Luther King, Jr. “Martin Luther was the radical at the time he nailed his demands up on the door of the church. He was a radical Christian. Now we look at him as a great Christian, a great Christian theologian, but he was a radical at the time. That’s why the church, the power, wanted to kill him,” Glenn said. Also critical to understand, the Muslim Brotherhood — traditional Islamists — have infiltrated the government of the United States.Source:
