Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Is this Islam?

Mansoor Ijaz in the Los Angeles Times: "In fact, the most glaring truth is that Islam’s mobsters fear the West has it right: that we have perfected the very system Islam’s holy scriptures urged them to learn and practice. And having failed in their mission to lead their masses, they seek any excuse to demonize those of us in the West and to try to bring us down. They know they are losing the ideological struggle for hearts and minds, for life in all its different dimensions, and so they prepare themselves, and us, for Armageddon by starting fires everywhere in a display of Islamic unity intended to galvanize the masses they cannot feed, clothe, educate or house.

This is not Islam. And the faster its truest believers stand up and demonstrate its values and principles by actions, not words, the sooner a great religion will return to its rightful role as guide for nearly a quarter of humanity."

This author has it about right -- Islam does not encourage a culture of innovation and entrepreneurism. It will never create a dynamic modern system. What these Islamic radicals fear is not that we are doing it better, but that their religious beliefs are inherently inferior and can never match the West. Our existence actually threatens their identity, and so they’d rather drag us down than change to compete. A very old story.
