I want to tell you all a little story. It involves my nephew, who was around 22 and living in Scotland at the time, where he played in a cricket team. The team was made up of various ethnicities and religions. During an after season party, my nephew happened to mention to one particular young man that he was an atheist. The man he told was a Muslim, around the same age as him, maybe a little younger. He was also supposedly a friend and team mate. So what did my nephew get as a response to this innocent remark?


A punch in the face!!!


This man is not someone you'd consider an extremist. He is unlikely to strap a bomb to his chest. This is the reaction of a “moderate.” Violence against non-believers is so inbuilt to the Muslim belief system, it was an automatic reflex. Those who claim the majority of Muslims are “moderate” in order to defuse tension and hatred towards Islam, should maybe be spending their time teaching these people how to actually be moderate in their beliefs. Teach them to respect other people's opinio...Wait, what am I saying? This would go against their religion and make them infidels too. Never mind!

I had a road rage incident with a Muslim who tried desperately to start violence, as a 200 pound metal worker with martial arts and being tolerant I simply stood my ground. He on the other hand practically begged to be punched and beaten, citing that being Muslim made him better. Funny as his mind was the only one trying to incite violence in the face of calm reason. Makes ya think....
