Jordan: Is Islam the Solution?

“When people say that Islam is the solution I get sudden mental flashes of the morality police marching down streets burning books, whipping indecently clothed men and women, and the strict application of an extreme interpretation of Islam. Because this is where we are today. Islam is not being introduced by degrees nor is it progressing as it once did. Instead, the religion remains in center field while society swings from one extreme to another; like a pendulum that never comes to a complete stop,” rants Jordanian blogger Naseem Al Tarawnah.

  • That is not the only face of Islam. In fact that is a deviant sect of Islam, in my opinion.

    Whenever such a thing happens in the name of Islam, the Media jumps at it. But when similar things happen in the name of other religions, media looks away.

    Please look for yourself. Look into Islam itself. Not the various images you see of it on wavy water of current politics.
