I have a few things to say about Islam, but I would like to make clear that I am not talking about Muslims as individuals, or even Muslims in general. Muslims are people, and should be treated with all of the rights and dignities with which we treat all people. I have great respect for many of my Muslim friends.
The problem is not with Muslim people, but with Islamic ideology. Unfortunately a large amount of Islam is dedicated to telling adherents that they are the chosen ones, and that people who do not follow Islam are beneath contempt. This is what is written in the books of Islam: the Quran, Hadith, and Sira.
We are in the middle of a war with radical Islam, but many people in the West do not recognize this. Whether this is due to ignorance or deliberate blindness this disconnect must be overcome if our culture is to survive.
