At War With Islam

"It is time we admitted that we are not at war with "terrorism." We are at war with Islam. This is not to say that we are at war with all Muslims, but we are absolutely at war with the vision of life that is prescribed to all Muslims in the Koran. The only reason Muslim fundamentalism is a threat to us is because the fundamentals of Islam are a threat to us. Every American should read the Koran and discover the relentlessness with which non-Muslims are vilified in its pages. The idea that Islam is a "peaceful religion hijacked by extremists" is a dangerous fantasy — and it is now a particularly dangerous fantasy for Muslims to indulge."
Sam Harris, the author of "The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason." and columnist for the Washington Times.

And MMM comments:
So it's a war with Islam but not with all Muslims?!
It's a war with the vision of life that the Koran prescribes to all muslims?
And what vision is that?
What fundamentals of Islam are a threat to Americans or any other non-muslims?
This is all crap and lies.
I too urge everyone to read the Koran or a decent translation of it and discover themselves how many lies people like this spread about Islam without having any clue.

Thank you MMM.
