What’s So Hard to Understand About Islam?

BY ED KUGLER

Every day the headlines confirm what we already know. The ideology of Islam is archaic and has no place in modern society. Yet, we have leaders around the world who deny, cover up, pander and support the cause of a tyrannical, totalitarian system of government. What is so hard to understand?

Every action produces a reaction. If we plant corn seeds, we get corn. If we plant flower seeds we don’t just get any flower; we get the specific type of flower we planted. We feed the bears in the wild, and they will come to depend on our generosity and if we quit giving they become aggressive. Life is not hard to understand. Action and reaction.

I’m struck by reading headlines across different news outlets with the same familiar theme. Take a look. University of Central Florida: Muslim arrested for “inappropriately touching women” hard to imagine someone in the West not knowing this is wrong. Yet, we see daily headlines of this happening in Europe, committed by young Muslim men. In Europe, it is worse. “German women in fear: New anti-rape pants sell out very quickly” Can you imagine you live in such a time this is considered a ‘normal’ response to rape? What don’t we understand? It is madness.

We travel to Malaysia, a Muslin country and find this headline. Malaysia: Muslim who beat his 9-year-old daughter to death would “recite the Quran during the night.” Who does that? Or try this on for size. Canada: Two Muslims convicted of forcing 15year-old girl and two other women into prostitution. Again, who does that? Muslim men do that the world over.

We travel to India and find the same behavior. India: Muslims slit Hindu’s throat for dating a Muslim woman. Who does that? Have you ever heard of a Hindu striking out in this manner? How about a Catholic? In the United Kingdom, where their culture is being rapidly turned back centuries, we find, UK: Muslim teens repeatedly rape women at gunpoint in her own home and behind a mosque. Yet, we’re always told, by our leaders and the media, behavior like this is normal. What? It may have been ‘normal’ 1,400 years ago, but it is not normal today.

The Islamic ideology is like an infectious disease that turns individuals into something other than they are. Are all Muslims bad? Of course not. Is the Islamic ideology bad? Absolutely. A wise man once said, ‘by their fruits, ye shall know them.’ Since the tragedy of 9-11 at the World Trade Center, the ideology of Islam has murdered over 30,000 people, with over 80% of those killed were Muslims killed by other Muslims. How can the media and our leaders treat this as ‘normal’?

What other ideology migrates to an accepting nation and then seeks to change it at every turn to what they left. Take this headline. Oregon: Muslim inmate sues state over failure to provide halal meals. Here is a young man who beat and raped a young woman, sent to prison and is demanding and suing for his ‘right’ to a religious meal. We see it every day in demands to ‘not serve’ ham, take a drivers license picture with a mask on and stop work so we can have prayer. And oh, by the way, provide a special place for me to do it. There is no end to the demands of Islam.

The ideology manifests itself in many ways. Uganda: Convert from Islam to Christianity says “The Muslims are trying to kill me” Can you name any religion on earth, outside of Islam, that has doctrine and teaches to kill those who leave the faith? Name one? It is insanity to ignore this behavior. With Islam comes the practiced are of double-dealing. Egypt: Muslims who attacked church get no jail time, Christian fined $20,383 for unlicensed church. While this example is in Egypt, it happens all over Europe and Canada every day. The Judicial System is pandering to Islam.

What is so hard to understand? We in the West are invaded by an ideology that is incompatible with free society. It is high time we take the blinders off, pull our collective heads out of the sand and see the light of what is happening, not what they’d like us to think is happening.
