Islam Threatens Democracy?

August 29, 2006 § 3 Comments

If possible, I would like to invite British nationals like Thabet of Under|Progress and Indigo Jo of Indigo Jo Blogs to comment on the following statement,

“The alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners and last year’s terrorist attacks on London have made more people fear Islam as a religion, not merely its extremist elements, a poll for The Daily Telegraph has found.

A growing number of people fear that the country faces “a Muslim problem” and more than half of the respondents to the YouGov survey said that Islam posed a threat to Western liberal democracy.” (P. Johnston, Telegraph)

This statement was recently cited on Lawrence Kudlow’s blog. Lawrence Kudlow is a nationally syndicated columnist of CNBC’s Kudlow and Company and is also on a few radio shows and things… anyway, on a post entitled, “Majority of Brits Fear Islam“, Kudlow’s readers seem to agree that “Islam” is a threat to democracy. I have heard much talk about Muslims, “radical Muslims” and “Islamic extremists” being a threat… but now Islam (un-hyphenated) is being targeted in the mainstream media.

    Salam brother..
    When Islam appeared, there was nothing called democracy,, in fact Islam founded the demcratic community in non-democratic area
    one of the western writers (can’t remember who) said something about “The utopia” which existecd only in our prophet Muhammad “Sala Allah Alih Wasalam” Era….
    The only thing that made people fear Islam is the media propaganda teling people that Islam is the religion of terrorism, sometimes I wonder how & where they made their researches about Islam itself!!!
    & if there’s just there’d be no fear in this world, the western’s world enemy is a western hand-made
