Man Beheads Wife in NY, but Lets Not Forget Islam is a Religion of Peace

Muslim apologists running out of fodder.

This story, about a Muslim TV executive’s wife who had filed for a divorce who was found beheaded has me really fired up. These people are professionals, and from the looks of them, you would have a hard time convincing me that they aren’t part of the Muslim mainstream. In 2004, the husband in this case said “Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a ‘Muslim extremist, militants, terrorists, or insurgents. But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that ‘Bridges TV’ hopes to tell”. Five years later the same man beheaded his wife. Oh, and this happened in America.

Ever since 9/11, it has been trendy for cliché liberals, and TV pundits trying to make themselves sound smart to say things like “Islam is a religion of peace” and “Muslims are a peaceful people”. Such statements are at best ridiculous and at worst ignorant. The truth is Islam is extremely violent, patriarchal and intolerant. It is the only of the major religions to be primarily spread by the sword. Don’t get me wrong, the other major religions are no better, but people in this country don’t feel the need to point out that they think Christianity is peaceful because it is (wrongly) assumed to be, like they do for Islam. So many times in a conversation I’ve heard some pseudo-intellectual say, “well you know Islam itself is really peaceful”. Even a self-described Muslim friend of mine one tried to tell me that “nowhere in the Koran does it say to use violence, Islam is a religion of peace.” I guess he hadn’t actually read the thing.

Here are a few links documenting violence in religion, Islam, and Christianity, source of our morality indeed. The most dangerous of all these being the certainly believers feel about their religion as to create a perceived moral high ground which is used to justify all kinds of heinous acts.
