Trump calls out Republican Senators for being phony! Do your job… Do what you were elected to do.
Can moderate Muslims modernize Islam to be more peaceful and tolerant? In the new book by award-winning journalist, Christine Douglass-Williams, The Challenge of Modernizing Islam she interviews prominent moderate and reformist Muslims on how they intend to challenge jihadism and how they will spread the message of an Islam that is genuinely peaceful, tolerant, pluralistic, and compatible with secular governance, freedom of speech, and the equality before the law.
Jihad is defined differently depending on which ideology you ask. Jihad means an internal struggle. But in practice, moderate Muslims won’t use it because they know it is a loaded term. Jihad by the sword. Jihad by conquest.
When you understand the schools of thought of Islam, the Quran is not consistent in practice with our Constitution.
Sharia Law within Islam, is divine law. Under Sharia you do not criticize Islam or Muhammad. It is a serious crime. This is not consistent with Democratic law.
ISIS and al Qaeda are talking about reforming back to the 7th century. They come to the West to conquer, not to assimilate. It is written clearly in the Muslim Brotherhood documents.
If an ignoramus maligns someones deity, that’s their prerogative. If a Muslim cannot say that you have that RIGHT, they are not open to pluralism.
Islamophobia is not anti-Muslim bigotry.
There is supremacy intertwined in Islam. They do not consider themselves equal to others.
Israel’s right to exist is a litmus test for Muslims. Are they fair toward Israel? If not, Islamist.
The leaders of Europe have completely failed their constituency with the Muslim influx.
Our leaders need to protect our western democracy and our citizens FIRST!
