How jejune must be the argument of those who equate harsh and violent aspects of the Old and New Testaments to those of the Qran, and use this thin level of scholarship to imply, state, document how Islam is no different than any other religion. To state otherwise, they assert, is no more than 1. ignorance 2. hate 3. Islamophobia. When one examines the above, it becomes clear that the usual liberal motive of hiding their mean-spiritedness, combined with claims of being a more righteous individual is at work. The catalyst for this type of argument is diaphanous: one must champion this view or face the possibility of being drummed out of the lemming-liberal crowd. After all, this corrupt position reinforces so many of the Left-wing touchstones: 1. Americans are too dumb to be allowed to form opinions; events are not what they seem. 2. America is always in the wrong. 3. Any offenses against America must be based on something this country did wrong. 4. Always hate Judeo-Christian religion, and western culture. Of course any religion can take on evil and offensive aspects. It depends on which attitudes of the founding documents are emphasized. The Qran has all sorts of postures, and the same syncretism is reflected in the Old and New Testaments, as well. Foolish it is to make the argument that followers of the Bible are as likely to emphasize the violent, inhuman aspects as are the adherents of the Qran. To make that argument is akin to who are you gonna believe, me or your lyin eyes. 1. At this moment in time, there is only one major religion in which it is not uncommon for religious services to be followed by murder and mayhem. 2. While all Muslims are not terrorists, a valid generalization is that all terrorists are Muslims. 3. Huge numbers of Muslims support terrorism and violence. History and individual experience has shown that human nature is malleable, and this discord will pass- but not if we acquiesce to evil behaviors.
