RE: Islam and the west: incompatible?
You want to push your religious dogma here, that's your right, but as far as I am concerned, it's fair game along with the rest of the religious nuttery that infects this sorry planet. Your religion isn't anymore "perfect" than the rest of the garbage pushed by holy rollers who have been screwing up this planet since men first crawled out of a tree. In fact, it is ruthlessly unfair to women, fundamentally undemocratic, in love with war as a way of settling problems, it brutally surpresses free speech, and its rules only allow freedom of religion if the other relgions recognize subservience to Islam. It has resulted in a third of the planet not progressing past the 13th Century, and is as royally screwing up the planet as Medieval Catholicism did during the Crusades. You people need to hire a Martin Luther, and clean up your act so your religion can function in a pluristic, democratic world. As things currently stand, Islam is the religion having a hard time co-existing with the modern world to the point it is scaring the shit out of the rest of us. I am all in favor of building a wall around you guys, and leaving you to kill each other instead of us.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
