    The "PROGRESSION" of Islam
    Certainly Islam is declining, absolutely no doubt about it. Why ? It is simple: just observe and think deeply, although nowadays most people do not want to take their time to stop for a while to keep a strike eye over and work their mind. If ‘Islam’ were really in progression as the Moslems claim to do themselves and make us believe it that way, why would they have a need to kill? Why would they make terrorism and call the world for hatred and war –their ‘jihad’? Are not they so sure to win in the future, though? If they are so certain to win, such attitude would just turn against them and make them be blamed for all the damage they cause around the world. So, why do they do that? By doing that they are the ones who run the risk (smile) to give – let me say it – a really bad Islam’s trademark. In fact, it currently occurs with Islam what happens among gangsters –some of them unknown, some others famous as Al Capone and his “siccarios”. When they feel the end is coming for them, they desperately seek to move back to expiration. That is the reason why they make use of violence and intimidations, machine guns and all sort of weapons as much as possible. But that is in vain… that is for nothing.
    How long will it take before Islam will no longer be a great religion? May be two or three centuries? Perhaps longer? or perhaps a shorter period of time? I do not know. But something is certain about it for me : Islam is already in decline. The ‘conversions’ which they talk about, and which our free press and television quotes and show, are just superficial conversions, even if they like them to be filmed spectacularly while praying on the ground so that other people can tell they are Moslems. They just want to make an impression on us. All this comedy they are ordered to play for us does not impress me at all, though. I think that in the way towards freedom, it will happen one day in their own soil something like ‘Solidarnosc’, because recall you that communism was also a kind of religion.

    belalady, who are you and why do you kick so much ass? You seem to have an insider's view of the islamic world. Are you from there? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I'd disagree with your premise. Islam has implemented conversion by the sword since it's inception, and is now one of the world's 'great' religions.

    This contemporary manifestation of jihad can not neccesarily be explained as a frustrated Islam's dying gasp.

    check your fact sheet- islam is the worlds fastest growing religion.
    it is also the fastest growing religion in the u.s. with mormonism #2.france also has a large number of muslims but the greatest concentration of muslims is in the middle east and north africa.islam isn't going anywhere,i guess you could say christianity or buddhism will be gone in 200 years but we just don't know.

    Mindlessly stating that "Islam is the fastest growing religion" is a misuse of statistics.

    To use an extreme example, If there is one convert to X religion in a country, and he converts 10 others, the religion would have a 1,000% growth rate. That would make for an extremely rapid growth rate by any definition......, but wait......

    for the southern baptists to have the same growth rate, the entire North American Continent (with Mexico) would have to become Southern Baptist.

    Statistics lie even when they tell the truth, sometimes.

    I also think the statistics are misleading. While i dont doubt there is some growth in Islam there are nations where you have to be Islam or you die. That is pretty good motivation not to convert.

    Thats one of my main issues with Islam. If its based on God, then what does it have to fear from competition in religion. I think the truth can stand on its own. Look at what the religious competition has done in America, Americans are now more religious now than during the revolution. (although you wouldnt know that if you listened to the way some people talk.)

    Agreed.

    Agreed.

    Mark my words.

    Currently you are seeing with the EU, a forced law of rule with Islam to be the model. Beheadings for certain crimes and such are coming about. Catholocism will replace Islam as a "national" and then "world" religion. A look at EU documentation, catholic progress documantation, and statements by Solana will verify all of this.

    As such, this whole thing about Islam being peaceful and dying out, and whatever else is a bunch of horsecrap. It rules by the sword, it is not going away, and it is a root cause of the biggest socialism/religious take over the world has ever known.

    Albania already has one of the highest per capita Muslim populations of any non Arabian country. It's spreading fast through India and even Red China, as well as eastern Russia. In Europe, the almost forced secularism present in the government is leaving a religious vacuum that is slowly being filled by Islam. Taking into account an exponential curve to plot the conversion rate (the more converts you have, the fewer there are to convert, so growth is slower), Islam will be the largest European religion in less than a century. It is also extremely strong throughout northern Africa and is rapidly spreading south, although it's having a hard time with both the independant rebel factions and the heavy Christian missionary population around equatorial African. About the only place where Islam isn't going strong is Latin America and the Carribbean.
