Is the spread of Islam as great a threat as the spread of communism once was?
Any rigid, judgmental, discriminatory, women hating and using doctrine, ideology... is a danger to the world. When the reward for disobedience (even just being yourself in your corner) can bring a death penalty, we need to think about it.
Then, people need to realize why this religion is spreading so widely and fast, why young French men and women go do Jihad in the Arab Peninsula or North Africa? These people are thirsty for direction, authority, values that our society has traded for money, sex, glamour, technology...
We need to not attack Islam that can be practiced a loving and constructive way, but to single out the extremists and the consequences of their actions, while recognizing the participation of our world to the destruction of cultures, families, countries.
Today, this extremism has destroyed so many women that are functioning slaves for life, children that will never get a chance to know themselves because they have to be clones. It is the same thing in most communities, families and groups, but in this case, choosing to be you can mean DEATH OR TORTURE FOR LIFE.
This subject is so complex and difficult to treat because all sensitivities are involved, every level of education are touched. The whole Umma (Islamic community) feels attacked when things are done and said, except for those who reason.
I pray everyday that peace may come, though we all know that we have to fulfill the book.
Love and peace to all. keep on showing loving kindness to all while protecting yourselves.
