I feel sorry for those trapped within Islam.
Although I quite readily attack Islam and the criminals it too often produces, that doesn’t mean I don’t feel for those who are trapped within this vile cult, and who may be desperate to escape.
I have often said that the first victims of Islam are Muslims, because Islam prevents people from growing, learning and progressing and fulfilling their full human potential. Those who are born into Islam* are born into slavery
In Islamic societies anyone who asks questions, especially about matters of religion, is marginalised or silenced, often by violent means. Those who depart from Islamic doctrine and decry Islamic doctrines such as Jihad, as the Ahmadiya Muslims have done, are treated like lepers and excluded from society.
Islam imprisons 1.3 billion human beings in a prison without walls, guarded by those who follow the words of a mentally ill, lying, 7th Century, paedophile warlord called Mohammed. That’s a large portion of humanity which is denied the chance to be at peace, denied even the right to think for themselves. That is not good.
Throughout the Islamic world women are mutilated, oppressed, treated as chattels, burned and forced to endure the horrendously misogynistic culture that Islam has created. Children are sold into sexual and physical slavery with education beyond religious education often denied.
The ideology of Islam hollows out those countries which it controls. The main reason why there are so few Nobel prize winners is not because of poverty, or racism, or lack of opportunity, but because there is a fundamental lack of respect in Islamic societies for non-religious learning.
I do not believe that individuals who were born Muslim were born evil, or born lacking in some factor that makes us human** but I do believe that Islam often turns babies who are born innocent, into monsters. When you come across individual Muslims who are good people remember that these people are good not because of Islam, but in spite of it.
Although members of all religions have the capacity for hatred and violence it is only Islam that has turned this hatred and violence into a fundamental commandment of the religion. Some may point out that the G-d of the Tanakh (which Christians call the Old Testament) can be uncompromising and in ancient times commanded violent acts. However, that was then, this is now. In the modern world Islam still commands violence, still commands appalling acts of oppression both physical and psychological. The violence in the Bible relates to a time past, the Koran cheer-leads for violence in the here an now.
I wish all those readers of this blog who were born Muslim to actually read the Koran in a language that they understand and recognise that the Koran is not a book of life but a book of death. A reasonable ethical person would not encourage their child to live by the tenets of Hitler’s Mein Kampf but the Koran is not much different from that accursed volume. There are the same hatreds, the same arrogance, the same falsehoods in the Koran as contained in Mein Kampf. .
Islam took the words of Jewish and Christian scribes and inverted the morality contained within them. Shortly after doing that the followers of the Mohammed gang wiped out the Christian and Jewish kingdoms and tribe who were dwelling on the Arabian peninsular. Truly, Islam has done what the Biblical Prophet Isaiah described and ‘called evil good and good evil’.
My hope for the future would be that every Muslim saw the light, opened their minds and abandoned this foul cult of death. That way they would become fully human with all the rights and responsibilities that humanity requires. There are better people to follow, better ideologies to promote than that of Mohammed and Islam.

Another personal account of leaving Islam
* those who choose to follow Islam by conversion, knowing what Islam is, and being aware of the evil that it does, are no better than Nazis in my opinion. They let down humanity. They have succumbed to the darkness. I hope that one day they wake up to what they have done.
**inbreeding in Islamic societies has not helped the general IQ level though.
