From the UK, this article shows how out of touch with reality government leaders can be.
Muslim women should be sent on assertiveness training courses as part of the fight against extremism, say government ministers.
Lessons in confidence building and communication will help them resist intimidation or recruitment by Al Qaeda or other violent or hardline groups, they believe.
And what good is that going to do against an ideology that has no intention of allowing their women to act freely??
These foolish government people believe the lie that only part of Islam is the problem – that the ‘peaceful’ Muslims can be brought around to a better way of thinking and behaving. I’ve news for them and it’s all bad. Islam is the problem. The whole religion is infected by the corruption of the Koran – there’s no escaping the fact that this so-called ‘scripture’ preaches intolerance, oppression and even death to those who are the infidel. This same book preaches cruelty and subservience of women to the point of being treated even worse than animals in countries run by Islam (think Saudi Arabia.)
The very language those government officials use shows their mind set: “Oh, only the extremists are a problem.” Once again, all of Islam as a religion is extremist. Then again, I’m at the point of being so cynical about government that I’m inclined to believe that they are aware that Islam is the problem but are more interested in keeping the status quo or even outright power than in dealing with the problem.
