Hushing Muslim silence

The reform of Islam cannot be initiated by non-Muslims; it can be catalyzed by non-Muslims, making it clear to moderate Muslims that sticking one’s head in the sand is no longer an option.

The crimes committed by ISIS in the name of Islam are unrivalled in their cruelty. Moderate Muslims around the world have uttered their dismay at ISIS actions, labeling them “un-Islamic” and even Nazi.

Remarkably though, the streets of Paris and London – which thronged with anger at Israel during the Gaza War of 2014 – are quiet. No major Islamic organization has summoned its followers in the West to rally against ISIS. The silence of the Muslim street is deafening.

    There is an old legal adage: “silence implies consent”.

      The problem is the fear and silence from the French people,we all know the old adage of “History repeating itself”. Are we so advanced as a species to forget the one thing that has given humanity life? We used to learn from our mistakes,now we allow others to decide for us?

    OK here’s the broken record pointing out the same thing again …
    The Islamic definition of slander is what’s in play. Islam considers slander to include even mentioning something that another person would not want talked about.

    There will never ever ever ever ever be any moderation in Islam.

  • Muslims cannot speak up. Here is why.

    Would you wear a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it?

    You might in Montana. Don’t try it in Mecca.

    Why?

    Because, Islam trains a small number of its most devout believers it’s OK to kill. And Islamic killers have been trained to kill anyone who insults Allah and/or Mohammad.

    In Montana you’d have a good chance none of these Islamic killers would see you.

    In Mecca you wouldn’t last five minutes. One of Islam’s killers would come from out of nowhere and kill you. It is that simple.

    You don’t believe me? Ask any Muslim!

    Islam cannot be reformed by anyone. It can only be quarantined or beaten into submission.
