'Moderate' Muslims a 'Fatal Illusion'Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
So you think that there are "moderate" Muslims and that Islam can be reformed? Think again. As Pamela Geller (whose must-read website is Atlas Shrugs) notes in her piece on Ali Sina, an ex-Muslim from Iran that's "telling it straight in an essay about the impossibility of reforming Islam" - that's a "fatal illusion"
Ali Sina has written a book titled Understanding Muhammad, which Fjordman reviewed previously at Jihad Watch. The excerpts below from his essay provide insight into Ali's message: Islam cannot be reformed and there is no such a thing as a "moderate" Muslim. One either is or is not, a Muslim. There is no in-between.
Since, thanks to Islamic terrorism the interest to know Islam has picked and Islam has come under scrutiny, the westerners began asking where are the moderate Muslims. Well, there is none. The concept is absurd. Muslims view this issue differently. You are either a 'good' practicing Muslim or a bad wishy-washy Muslim. It's the latter group that the westerners have misnamed moderate Muslims. As far as Muslims are concerned they are 'hypocrites.' Not surprisingly, the 'moderates' also confess of being hypocrites. They will tell you they believe in Islam but they are not good Muslims. In the back of their minds however, they plan to become 'good' Muslims once they have done all the 'sins' and enjoyed life enough.In the conlusion of his lengthy, comprehensive, and highly informative essay, Ali writes that Islam cannot be reformed.
Islam is really a bad religion. The problem with Islam is with its sacred book and not just with its followers. Taking advantage of this confusion, a breed of Muslims has come up with the idea of "reforming Islam." A few of these "reformers" have also gained some recognition among the unwary westerners who have placed their hopes on them , even though they are ignored and derided by fellow Muslims at large.
In this article I would like to discuss whether Islam can be reformed.
You cannot reform Islam and you cannot transform it. All you can and should do, is dump it. Please, let us stop this charade. Either be a Muslim and do as Muhammad said or leave Islam and don't become a shield for the terrorists. Don't muddy the waters. Don't mix among the enemy and pose as a friend. This is the same taktic that Palestinians use in war. They mix among civilians and innocent children to make it difficult for their enemy to target them. You are causing confusion. You provide a protective shield for the enemy. I am not writing this for you. I know you are not going to change. You are a deciever. I am writing this for the non-Muslims so they do not fall into your trap and don't provide for you free podium to deceive them.In other words, to believe that there are "moderate" Muslims, is to delude oneself. And if Western civilization fails to recognize this, it will in fact become a "fatal illusion" that brings about the demise of our culture and freedoms.
They tried it in every imaginable way. The Mu'tazelis tired it, the Sufis tried it, hundreds of old and new schools tried it and they all failed. If you cannot stomach the Sharia, why do you want to keep Islam at all? Islam belongs to the toilet of history. Dump it and flush. Get rid of it and don't fool yourself with this nonsense. Accept the truth. Yes truth matters. Islam is a lie. Mhammad was a mentally sick conman. Get over with it and stop this ridiculous farce of reformation.
Be sure to read all of Ali's essay in its entirety here.
