On line dialogue with Muslims usually does not result in breakthroughs. One such exchange, in the Islam is a CRIME! discussion thread in the ISLAM: Not compatible with western values Facebook group, brings an extremely significant fatal fact to the foreground with unusual clarity.The above linked discussion thread delves into the criminal nature of Islam. The thread was recently revived by a new commentator who asserts that Islam is peaceful. My citation of Shari'ah relevant to offensive jihad asghar provoked this response: [All original spelling & syntax.]
This outline of the essential elements may help the uninitiated to comprehend the enormity of the revelation.
- war is not always bad

To the accepted standards of 'just war', Islam adds obstruction of Islam as a casus belli. But that does not mean blocking their 'missionaries', it means refusing their demands and resisting their invasion. Moe's missive to the chiefs of Aqaba makes this point with a fine flourish.
Now we have a Muslim asserting that aggression is justified because we resist Islam and conversion might be difficult if not preceded by conquest. I do not expect to see a better confirmation of the fatal facts which are open on the text of Islam's canon.
That was an extortion letter. Its essential message was: 'become Muslims or submit to extortion; otherwise I will invade and conquer you'. There will be peace and security if we surrender without a fight, otherwise there will be war.
