Islamic extremism is neither rare nor fundamental seems to be the main point of an Islamic Peace Conference. Is this radical normalcy, extreme moderate?
“Muslim “peace conference” in Norway confirming that all muslims want murder by stoning method, not only radicals. Muslim ask, “what shall media and politicians say now, shall they deport us?”
How dare you call us “extremists” when we represent so many? We are not extreme. This is Islam. They have a point. And it is time for secular liberals and (truly) moderate Muslims to stop denying it.
Jaclynn Glenn youtubed on this and rightly blames the Koran and not economic circumstances or retaliation against colonialism. The people at the conference are not saying they believe this because they do not have jobs or because they were oppressed by the West. Look at all those men.
The EU central governments are forcing local counties to accept masses of new refugees that the central government don’t know what to do with. The situation is so desperate after 20 years of massimmigration. Europe is now housing 80 million immigrated muslims who mostly live on EU welfare plus additional millions of non-muslims from outside Europe.
About 2000 new refugees arrive to Sweden each week from Syria. This is a record despite that fact that Sweden already broke all records of bringing in new refugees. Due to the pressure the Swedish government decided to give all Syrians permanent residency with lifetime welfare, free housing, food, clothes, cars, educations, priority before swedes to government jobs and welfare, etc. (This sound strange but it’s true.)
The Swedish government has no intention to slow down the mass immigration of mainly muslims from about 900 different tribes / ethnic groups and about 210 nations and non-nation regions in the world.
Liberal countries seem to think people seeking asylum from religious wars will embrace the ideals of the country to which they move. Safe harbors for the oppressed. Those who leave from wars often leave because they are losing. They would prefer to be winning and they would prefer their politics-philosophy-religion ruled wherever they are.
Islam is a religion of peace because whatever they believe it is believed by many as Islamic not because of any consideration of agression or radical as action.
The question these Islamophobic journalists need to reflect upon is; are these so called ‘‘radical’’ views that they criticize endorsed only by these few individuals being invited around the globe, or does the common Muslims believe in them. If the common Muslims believe in these values that means that more or less all Muslims are radical and that Islam is a radical religion. Since this is not the case, as Islam is a peaceful religion and so are the masses of common Muslims, these Shaykhs cannot be radical. Rather it is Islamophobia from the ignorant western media who is more concerned about making money by alienating Islam by presenting Muslims in this way.
Just remember you must say “Peace be upon him” whenever you utter the name Mohammed or you insult Islam and offend Muslims which is blasphemy which is worthy of a fatwa punishment–oh wait, “old” moderates said it was worthy of intellectual discussion and the Koran never directly says to punish others except in war, sedition, or rebellion. By that measure the above group in Norway was seditious and rebellious and should be punished. Where are the Imams now?
