MYTHS DEBUNKED: “True islam is not violent, which is proven by the fact that it is the 2nd largest and fastest-growing religion on earth”

ANSWER: It should not be surprising that a violent political ideology is proving so attractive to much of the world. The attractive power of fascist ideas has been proven through history.

Reason for its “success”

Mohammedanism combines the interior comfort provided by religious faith with the outward power of a world-transforming political ideology. Like the revolutionary violence of communism, jihad offers an altruistic justification for waging death and destruction.

Such an ideology will naturally draw to it violent-minded people while encouraging the non-violent to take up arms themselves or support violence indirectly. Because something is popular hardly makes it benign.

Growth

Furthermore, the areas in which mohammedanism is growing most rapidly, such as Western Europe, have been largely denuded of their religious and cultural heritage, which leaves islam as the only vibrant ideology available to those in search of meaning.
