Radical Islam and Democracy

5 posts in this topic

Do you think that expansion of radical islam around the world is going to put and end to western civilization?

Do any of us will ever like to live under any other form of government than democracy?

In how much time do you think it is possible that Great Britain, France, Hollland or Spain collapse as free societies and fall into the hands of islamo-facism?

:eek

No chance of this happening. When given the chance, most muslims males do not act according to muslim rules (they do of course try to get their women to do so because it is a male dominated religion). I lived in Brighton a couple of years ago and large numbers of muslims in the clubs and casinos. Islam has little attraction for those living in western societies.

The main issue concerns how muslims will be treated in western democracies. For example, in the UK I fully expect to see the end of muslim state schools.

Hello John,

I wish I should be as optimistic as you are, but I'm not...

A form of intolerant Islam is on the rise, it is called "salafism" or "wahabism"... It is promoted by Saudi Arabia and financed by big oil money... So is the islamic terrorism promoting jihad, the war against the kuffars in the Dar al Harb lands...

Did you watch this Channel 4 documentary: Undercover Mosque?

May I suggest you read Peter Dale Scott's new book entitled The Road To 9/11. [although I could name others] that will show you that most all of the Islamic 'terrorists and extremists' of your imagination, having bought the Oligarchy's propaganda, are of OUR MAKING...trained by us, armed by us....doing our bidding. Read also The Great War For Civilization by Robert Fisk to see how first Britain and then the USA have been the agents provocateures and the evil ones in the Middle East....to the extreme. The Arabl and Islamic peoples are just like you and me and care about life, their children, their day-to-day lives, liberty and being left alone. WE have been the problem and the 'stone in their shoes' and lives....because of the geopoliticial greed for their land and oil. Shame on us...not on them. I'd also suggest you read Chis Hedges book American Fascists about the Christian Radicals who, in my humble opinion are a whole hell of a lot more dangerous at the moment and the ones who stired up much of the hornets nest of revenge in the Middle East.

dear Peter,

You are already speaking like a dhimmi, not like a freeman...

Too much leaders of the Free World act as Chamberlains in regard of the coming islamist menace...

Believing that 9/11, 3/11 or the 7/7 "incidents" are figments of the imagination is pure delerium tremens...

Christian radicals who regard the Biblical vision of Armageddon as a policy aim are particularly scary, especially when they have links with people who control nuclear weapons. (And the reading list kindly provided on this thread will therefore remain on hold till I've got through someone's 1000 page thesis on Christian Zionism!)

However, other Christian radicals are, on the contrary, involved in peace-making.

Islamic radicals made a name for themselves in North Africa after the Second World War because 'Western Civilization' appeared to offer very little to the poor, while some of the radical movements did. Radical muslim self-help and educational organisations sprang up, and brought about a certain degree of redistribution of wealth - something most governments failed to do.

'Western civilization', 'Democracy', and 'Islamic radicalism' are all terms capable of fairly wide interpretation and of conjuring up differing pictures. One such picture summed the question up for me. Any sort of religion which is enthusiastically supported looks scary to 'Guardian' readers in Britain, and I often wonder whether when that newspaper published a photograph showing a mass array of muslim men bowing down to the ground in a public park in a British city they were deliberately setting out to disturb their readers' sensibilities. Christianity in Britain, on the other hand, finds it difficult to recruit men, even as priests, and unlike Islam only functions one day a week. It has been suggested very reasonably, therefore, that Islam could replace Christianity as the main religion in Britain.

Europe seemed to discover democracy in the 17th Century at around the same time as it developed capitalism, and both these concepts have gone global and appear to be here to stay irrespective of what happens to the spiritual landscape. Personally I would like to see all religions concentrating on the task of redistribution of wealth (towards the poor rather than the priesthood I suppose I have to add!) which is one thing global capitalism seems incapable of tackling.

A key ingredient of democracy is tolerance. It is interesting that the historian of civilizations, Arnold Toynbee, cited the Ottoman Empire as an example of tolerance existing as it did in a period in history when Europe was still struggling with the term.
