Islam: Can We Get Some Answers Here?

11.16.05 - In light of the recent violence outbreaks in France and the hotel bombings in Jordan, we are reminded again who instigates the majority of unrest and violence around the world. How long are we going to ignore the fact that Islam wants to see us all dead? Is it just fanatics? Don't be fooled by the dismissive claims that all this hatred is instigated by a few radicals.

In recent article in the LA Times, Commentator Dennis Prager presented the following five questions to Muslims that the West has yet to hear answers for. If the majority of Muslims are such peace-loving, compassionate individuals, then:

  • Why are you so quiet?
  • Why are none of the Palestinian terrorists Christian?
  • Why is only one of the 47 Muslim-majority countries a free country?
  • Why are so many atrocities committed and threatened by Muslims in the name of Islam?
  • Why do countries governed by religious Muslims persecute other religions?

It is about time we got some straight answers to these sticky questions. Until then we must conclude that Islam is at the root of the rampant violence today.
