That is right those who commit atrocities in the name of Allah are not radical Islamist. They are fundamental Islamist.
Jews and Christians are the children of the God of the Bible and the Koran demands that the followers of Allah kill the children of God.
The differences between the two religions are very clear and easy to see if you compare what a fundamentalist of either religion do.
A fundamentalist is one who rigidly adheres to the basic principals of their religion.
The fundamental Christian will do absolutely nothing to harm anyone; even their enemies! They will not lie to, or kill their enemies, because their religious guidebook forbids it.
The fundamental Islamist will lie to their enemies and kill them if they do not surrender to them and their god, because that is what their religious guidebook demands.
Islam singles out Jews and Christians as their enemy. The goal of Islam is to destroy all of the children of the God of the Bible. Islam must control the entire world in order to accomplish its basic goal of destroying God’s children and that is the cause of the recent wars and strife that the world is facing.
God and Allah cannot be the same God. Both claim they are God, but they have entirely opposite goals. Allah teaches hate, but God teaches love. Allah teaches it is right to lie to others, but God teaches it is not right to lie to anyone. Allah teaches it is right to kill those who do not summit to it, but God teaches it is not right to kill anyone.
Isn’t it clear that Islam was founded by the enemy of God and its goal is to oppose God?
Would a god that teaches it is right to lie to others, not lie to them? Would a god that teaches it is right to kill others, not kill them? Who, in their right mind, would worship such a god?
If we use the term “Radical Islamist” to identify terrorists, that commit atrocities in the name of Allah, we give Islam a free pass and it is not blamed as the root cause. The true title of those who kill in the name of Allah is “fundamentalist” and Islam “is” the root cause of the atrocities.
Those who say that Islam is a religion of peace are not fundamentalist. There are many who call themselves Christians that are not fundamentalist as well. Both are lukewarm and really have no religion, they only think that they have.
