A large part of what's wrong with Islam is its refusal to acknowledge fault. The Muslims had been promised world dominion. When it didn't materialise, when they saw that European civilisation had utterly surpassed them, they could have engaged in a process of self-critique. They could have asked what had gone wrong, what could we change to catch up? But that would have implied the acknowledgement of fault. And since they had been told their religion, their system, their prophet was perfect, no acknowledgement of fault was possible.

Acknowledgement of fault can certainly go too far. Present-day Europe, for example, is characterised by a pathological excess of it. But, at least in moderation, the recognition of past errors brings with it the possibility of moral growth, the opportunity to become better than we are. This attitude, however, is alien to the Muslim mindset, even that of the supposedly moderate Muslims paraded in front of us as paragons of modernity.

What's bizarre is that this refusal to accept blame or acknowledge fault, this rejection of the possibility of moral growth, is praised to the high heavens by non-Muslims.

Here, for example, the pitiful Fraser Nelson in the Spectator (a supposedly conservative publication) collects various tweets from "moderate" Muslims distancing themselves - but not just themselves, distancing Islam - from the jihad attack yesterday.


This conduct is not praiseworthy, however. In truth, it is a form of holocaust denial. Europeans have matured morally by acknowledging past wrong-doing such as slavery and imperialism. They have engaged in deep, mournful reflection on these themes and have acknowledged their own guilt, to excess even. Muslims have never engaged in any similar process for their thousand-plus-year long campaign of brutal jihad against the world. It is simply absurd to say that these attacks have nothing to do with Islam. Islamic texts and doctrines clearly sanction attacks against non-Muslims. They clearly foster a trans-national sense of community among Muslims, imposing a duty to "defend" Muslims perceived to be under attack elsewhere. They clearly promise posthumous rewards for committing murder. And they clearly nurture a psychological gulf between an in-group (Muslims) and an outgroup (infidels). It is preposterous to claim that these key Islamic concepts are unrelated to the jihad attacks that now routinely occur in the western world. But that is what most Muslims living in western countries do, at least publicly, and, bizarrely, they find themselves praised for doing it. Smug equality cultists present this Muslim repudiation of responsibility as if it is some kind of moral triumph. In reality, of course, it is evidence of a profound moral failure.

Claire Anne Fuller Edl are a joke. You're all so stupid - these men weren't Muslim. Muslims can't kill it's a sin just as it is in any religion. You all need to wake up & stop being spoon fed stereotypes.

Jahid 'M' Muhammed Allah (One God With no Partners) Says in the Qu'Ran In Islam, if you kill a innocent human being that is as if you killed a the whole human race and you will be punished for that and if you save a life that's as if you saved whole human kind.

So tell me how is Islam a religion of hatred, and that is a fact and it is written in the Holy Qu'Ran for all you who have a brain go and look it up and stop insulting Islam.

Max Phelps Islam isn't about hate. Mohammed reunited people at war. Stop preaching hate & encouraging hate crimes against people based on their faith. It's people like you within their faith, who are extremists, that cause the problems.

Those "moderate" muslim may say anything they want, but they will never fight those jihadists who commit crime in the name of Islam. They will fight the Islamophobs instead who have the same view of Islam with the jihadists.
The moderate muslims are those who try to make non muslim unaware of the danger of Islam so that the jihadists can slay the non muslim easily.
There are no moderate muslims, they are only the muslims who are more dishonest than the jihadists.

Surat At-Tawbah (The Repentance) – سورة التوبة :

Sura 9:29 – Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

By way of the Naskh, or Quranic abrogation, Sura 9:5, also known as the “verse of the sword” overrules dozens of peaceful (Meccan) suras:

Sura 9:5 – And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Some Islamic theologians have asserted that the Verse of the Sword abrogates no fewer than 124 more peaceful and tolerant verses of the Quran. (http://schnellmann.org/PIG_abrogration_naskh.pdf)

Muslims interpret the word “peace” in a very particular way indeed. This religion is grounded on violence, hate and enmity against non-muslims who want to practice their faith in peace. Islam itself began being successful only in Medinah, when Mohammed changed his utterly failed Meccan peaceful rethoric to a violent and aggressive one.
