May It Not Come To
Bombing Millions Of Muslims?
By Joseph Grant Swank
Sam Harris’ book, THE END OF FAITH (W. W. Norton,
$16.95), puts forth a "militant critique," according to reviewer
Alan Wolfe, professor of political science and director of the Boisi
Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College.
"Harris is on — no other word will do — a crusade. Religion in
general, and Islam in particular, hold to beliefs that any mind searching
for evidentiary proof would have to dismiss as absurd," Wolfe writes.
With that admitted, author Harris then hammers away specifically at the
insanity of Islam in this recent publication. He sizes up realistically
that the Allah-is-great religion is a killing force to undo the planet’s
population. In that, Harris is correct. That’s exactly what the Koran
demands of its devotees. There are no moderate Muslims in the light of the
Koran; they are but cowards if they will not slaughter every
"infidel," that is, the non-Muslim, the Jew in particular.
Therefore, realizing that Islam is abhorrent, Harris warns the planet that
it might have to set loose drastic measures in order to insure the ongoing
safety of non-Muslims. Understanding how crazy the Muslim
"faith" is, the reader’s one side of the brain could very well
agree with Harris’ thesis. On the other hand, most of us would hope for
Wolfe writes in his review of Harris’ book: "Comparisons between
Harris and the fundamentalists he opposes are strengthened by the fact
that he, like they, have a taste for the apocalyptic. Since Islam by its
very nature cannot live with the West, and since Islamic states are
acquiring nuclear weapons, we might have to just take them out through
‘a nuclear first strike of our own.’ Killing tens of millions of
people may seem like ‘an unthinkable crime,’ Harris acknowledges,
‘but it may be the only course of action available to us, given what
Wipe them out with a nuclear blow? That’s what Harris concludes might be
the only realistic solution to bringing closure to the Muslim murderers
millions of innocent people for the sole reason that they are Muslims is
not only disgustingly inhumane, it is also not going to eliminate the
danger of nuclear bombing of our cities but rather justify it. Those who
are after the nuclear bomb are the Islamic terrorists such as the Iranian
Mullahs and al Qaeda. How by killing millions of innocent people in
can we stop these terrorists from blowing up our cities?
Isn’t removing the
a much easier and more humane way of dealing with this threat?
Also isn’t educating
Muslims so they can see that Islam is a satanic cult and not a religion of
God a much better way for fighting terrorism?
It makes no sense
protecting Islam, this ideology of hate and terror on one hand and then
kill by millions its adherents. If we want to stop Islamic terrorism and
end the threat of a nuclear war, we have to eradicate its ideology. Sites
such as FFI are the only answer, not a preemptive nuclear strike. So far
this site has been growing, thanks to the word of mouth. I expect the
number of visitors this month (Jan 2005) reach
180,000. But this is nothing when we have a billion Muslims to reach
and educate. Education is giving its fruit. This site is effective. Why
think of weapons of mass destruction when we can do much more with weapons
of mass instruction?
