The problem is when you mix civilized 21st century culture, with cultures that are still based on ancient believes and following the laws and tradition of yesteryear. The yeast of barbarity rises and the flames of cruelty burn deeply, all compassion is thrown to the winds.
The facts show a clarity that human kind can not live in harmony due to indoctrinations that have been passed on from generation to generation. With that indoctrination, hatred and religious based vendettas of our accident past have infected human society with distrust and jealousy of others that follow different Gods.
The main problem with the semantic based religions is Judaism was based on the laws of Moses a very wise ancient philosopher of whom decided to center the original religion on one God Yahweh of whom was possibly the Jewish god of war. The laws where very firm and straightforward, the punishments for breaking these laws were mostly cruel, as these where barbaric times. The Torah of course is a book of law and Folktales some true, some myths such as the creation. We could term this as Judaism-fascism.
2000 years or so ago Jesus Christ another very clever philosopher led the way to start a new religion by a very clever Roman Emperor called Constantine. The religion spread by followers Jesus was still basically a form of Judaism, of which was exploited by Constantine he wanted one religion only to suit the Roman Empire. The original god of the Jews, now had a human wife and son, God is seen as being much softer, forgiving to the point he invites his believers to his kingdom in the heavens after they die. We could term this as Christian-Socialism.
600 years or so later Islam was started by Muhammad a so call Arab Merchant of whom I suspect was a follower of Judaism. He is in fact quoted as being the last prophet of the faith of Abraham. This religion has similarities concerning strict laws and barbaric punishment. We could term this as Islam-fascism.
The followers of Judaism and Christianity have molded themselves to democracy and capitalism needs of a separate governing system where as many of the original Judaism laws and punishments have been made more socially accepted and humane. Whereas the laws of Islam have changed very little, Muhammad’s words and thoughts are sacred and above all else.
The western nations are mainly run by members of the Christian Faith each nation has a government that is suppose to be separate from the church, but many governments are highly influenced by the church. The laws and punishments have been mainly made by political law makers. Where as those countries within the Arab states are still relating to religious based laws and punishment of which are mostly barbaric.
The problem is that it’s been though that to have diplomatic relationships with any nation you have to respect the culture and its laws. Many western nations’ leaders and their diplomats have turned a blind eye to the barbaric laws of Islamic nations. It only seems to become a problem when a nation’s citizen falls foul of the laws.
Due to the war on terror and the spotlight has been placed on Muslim extremist, Islamophobia has reared its ugly head and more media attention has been placed on Islam-fascism. The problem is I really don’t think any thing can be done to stop the barbaric laws as they are part of the Muslim’s Faith. The indoctrination is to strong, it would be easier to move a mountain
