Religion of peace?

There is the truth, and there is whitewash. For the most part what we get from our “leaders” in the West is whitewash on the subject of Islam.

George W. Bush kept calling Islam a “religion of peace” after the 9/11 atrocity. Many on the Left, including our president (middle name “Hussein,” what did you expect?), will call names the moment any public figure starts asking hard questions about this so-called “religion of peace.”

Even the military, in the person of Army Chief of Staff General George Casey, appeared more concerned about the Army’s “diversity” than he was about the fact that an Islamist, in uniform, had just gunned down our soldiers at Ft. Hood.

Enter now the always intense Bill O’Reilly, who has the temerity to label Islam for exactly what it’s always been: a religion whose central tenets include the forcible conversion or extinction of those who will not join.

From the days when Mohammed beheaded Jews in the Arabian desert, to the very gates of Vienna, Islam has been spread at the point of the sword. When the West got better and bigger swords, Islam resorted to terror. O’Reilly’s central point, that Muslims have it in their DNA to kill Christians and Jews, should now be beyond question.

The past several days have seen but the latest atrocities committed by Muslims in the name of Islam: Christians murdered in Pakistan, dozens murdered at a shopping mall in Nairobi Kenya.

And the list goes on. The West, and Christianity, has left those barbaric days when the faithful could be expected to go on a bloody crusade in the name of Christ. We realize now that violence to spread the faith is against what our Saviour told us to do. Bringing up things that nominal Christians did a thousand years ago does not make us equal to Islam, whose forces continue to party like it’s the year 1000.

  1. If you really think about it, most of the Christian crusades were anti-semetic back then. People have to also realize that God stays the same and Isriel is still the apple of His eye.
