Beating Back Radical Islam

Contributing editor Robert Sklar’s Aug. 18 essay “Can Israel Overcome Palestinian Religious Decree” (page 6) was interesting. Unfortunately, the “elephant in the room” is political Islam.

You can’t have peace when you teach your children to hate, and that ties to political Islam (Sharia law).

Over a year and a half ago, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt, a devout Muslim, made the need for a reformation in Islam clear when he addressed the Islamic scholars at Al-Azhar University.

You can’t have peace when you teach your children to hate, and that ties to political Islam (Sharia law).

On Dec. 28, 2014 (www.memritv.org/clip/en/4704.htm), he said, basically, “We can’t keep preaching we want to kill all those who don’t believe the way we do.”

Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, as is ISIS. The Muslim Brotherhood creed is: “Believers are but Brothers,” “Islam is the Solution,” “Allah is our Objective,” “the Qur’an is our law,” “the Prophet is our leader,” “Jihad is our way,” and Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

Moderate Muslims who don’t buy in are afraid to speak up, and their voices are not sought out or supported by our government in any aspect of the “peace process.”

Unfortunately, without a change in ideology, how can there be peace?
