The traditions of Islam and those of the West are entirely different. The West evolved into a free society that valued tolerance and self-responsibility, including the development of personal ethics and integrity. The legal system evolved to represent those views. The Christian Church encouraged (with notable lapses) the use of reason to interpret the scriptures in order to better understand god’s word. To that degree, it was forward looking. It believes that all men are created equal in the image of god.
Islam went in the opposite direction, embracing a personal and social mode of behaviour that conformed down to the minutest detail with the Will of Allah – as determined in the seventh century. The law was immutable, ruthless and unforgiving – Sharia Law. Islam is, and will remain for as long as it continues to exist, backward looking. It separates the world into Believers and Non-Believers.
Christianity and Islam are incompatible to a profound degree. Islam forbids integration; it demands dominance.
The attempt to forcibly integrate Islam into the West will result in a level of violence not seen since the Romans sacked Carthage.
Whichever ideology wins, the other must now be totally destroyed.
What a damned mess.
With regard to the Islamic apologists: they know not what they do.
