    You are right. In fact, any of the misguided infidels who'd argue otherwise are really looking at things through their own chauvinistic goggles.

    Consider this.

    What we must understand is that Islam has its own vision of the world and man's place in it.

    To say that Islam is incompatible with democracy should not be seen as a disparagement of Islam.

    On the contrary, many Muslims would see it as a compliment because they sincerely believe that their idea of rule by God is superior to that of rule by men which is democracy.

    Look at our precedents -- legal and social -- and theirs. Look at our history and theirs. Look at our founding documents and theirs. You can't make the comparison. Sharia law (of which there is no one unified code, by the way) can't take root here any more than a movement to compel people accused of a crime to testify against themselves in court or face the death penalty.

    We give Israel lots and lots of foreign aid. We sell them weapons. We share intelligence with them. Would they be our friends if we stopped doing all of those things, or would they accuse us of being anti-Semites and cut us off? We'll never know until we do it. Same with any other country.

    England's problem is that it's government and criminal justice system are screwed all to hell. France's problem is youth unemployment. Neither of these problems are rooted in Muslim populations.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Holy ****...I need to start following Islam apparently because that's some actual prophetic **** if they listed "America" in the Koran centuries before it existed!

    Re: If you felt the person was qualified would you vote for Muslim president?

    If any particular Muslim were an Islamist, they would not get my vote. If they were traditionally conservative as are the majority of Muslims when it comes to gender roles, the relationship between religion and secular society or the lack of respect for diversity, they would not get my vote. If their actual views of the world were in alignment with mine, however, I would not only vote for them, but think such a person could do much to solve the problems inherent with Islamism.

    Precious few people in these forums seem to understand that Islamism is profoundly CONSERVATIVE by nature, as is traditional Islam, and what Islam needs as a whole to be more compatible with western society is a profound liberalization. What, with the dogmatic leftists in these forums defending the Islamist and ultra conservative forms of Islam out of blind political correctness, and the dogmatic righties painting with a broad brush as if all Muslims were Islamist, the discussion becomes muddied by all the people who are just repeating stupid platitudes and conforming to group think instead of approaching the subject from the standpoint of the actual world views involved. The stupid people on the hard left call a person an "Islamophobe" if they criticize the archly conservative nature of traditional Islam and the stupid people on the hard right just blather on with whatever Glen Beck tells them, and all do so without even the tiniest clue as to the underlying values they are attacking or defending.

    Since Obama said he is a Muslim and since until marriage he wore a ring with a declaration of being of the religion of Islam, we already know Americans would and have. Of course, that does not disqualify him and everyone knows he says whatever he thinks best to say at the moment.
