Whichever way you slice and dice it, the unfortunate truth is that Islam promotes violent conquest. It does this as a way of expanding its reach. There is also no way to reform Islam.
There may be long periods where Islam is relatively peaceful. This invariably occurs when Islam is not powerful. That is the moderate kind of Islam we have had since the end of WW1 when Islam was crushed militarily. As Islam grows in numbers and power however, violence will follow as surely as night follows day.
The only way to prevent this is to convince Muslims to convert to another religion or, if they prefer, to abandon religion altogether.
This may sound like an almost impossible goal but I don’t think it is. All it will take is for the people of the non-Muslim world to stand as one and insist that Islam is evil.
We need to make it clear that Islam is the source of the Islamic world’s problems. We must be clear that it is the product of a medieval Arab bandit and his narcissistic wish to rule the world.
Islam is indefensible in rational debate. When Islamic leaders cannot refute these claims, Muslims will have their faith shattered.
