Kudos to letter-writer Laura Armstrong (“Muslims ignoring facts of the last two decades,” Wednesday’s MDJ) and the others who have sent letters to the editor in response to the application for a mosque on Jiles Road.
In response to those who vilified the people who have written in opposing this mosque, I challenge you to read the Quran. There is one available at the NW Cobb Library donated by CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorist trials in 2008.
As children, most of us were taught the Judeo-Christian values to love our neighbor and to respect other religions. I find it difficult to consider Islam a religion. What modern religion demands the death of anyone who leaves it? What religion seeks to impose its laws on others?
Under Islam, you convert or accept the position of dhimmitude (a lowly legal status of non-Muslims) and pay Jazyah (a poll tax imposed on non-Muslims under Islamic Rule). Does this sound like a religion or a form of government?
Ultimately, the goal of Islam is to eliminate all who do not convert to their beliefs. Using the status of religion mosques have all the benefits of a religious organization. Our tax dollars are paying for this.
Muslims have mastered the art of playing the victim using our laws to further their goals of local and world dominance. When someone challenges this, they are called a bigot or worse. Read the Quran, study it and understand it. Islam is not your friend, and unless you accept Islam as your faith, you are the infidel.
What is relevant is the total lack of understanding of many Americans and elected officials of the ultimate goal of Islam and how those goals if achieved will impact our American way of life.
