The Guardian’s Rula Jebreal in this article, brought to us by Dr Alf, should explain how certain verses in the Koran are compatible with Western values and how Sharia law, is compatible with Judeo-Christian ethics, which is the foundation of English Common Law, which is in turn the foundation of all American law Constitution.

Proponents of Islam pretend that it is a peaceful religion, that Muslims are “misunderstood” and that only a tiny minority are radicalised. They play down that Islam is a potent political force. The reality is that Islam is against the values of the Guardian newspaper itself, which favours more liberalised divorce laws, gay marriage and the rights of woman.

Further evidence for this can be found in the BBC 2015 survey of Muslims, which found that 11% favoured Muslims fighting against the West, 20% believe that Western liberal democracy cannot ever be compatible with Islam, 11% feel that organisations which publish images of the Prophet Mohamed deserve to be attacked.

Rula Jebreal and Muslim apologists have nothing to say about the consequences of political Islam, so her article should be disregarded as the self-serving nonsense that it is.

Opinion in America is hardening against Muslims because they, like me, understand all too well that this religion, as actually practiced, is increasingly incompatable with the Western way of life and that too many of it’s adherents are political radicalisers, who need to be challenged.

Moderate Muslims need to be much bolder.
