Islam is not a race; it is a theologically based system of government with legal, political, and religious elements. It's religious texts REQUIRE everyone under its control to submit to Allah or face death or pay confiscatory tribute through the jizya tax.
Islam should be afforded no comfort or support from ANY people who desire to be free and live outside the subjection of Islam... In my opinion, those that support the imposition of sharia law within their borders should either be arrested for sedition and treason or deported upon conviction in a common law court. The very system of Islam violates the maxim "do no harm" and anyone who attempts to impose it on any nation is attacking that nation as sure as an armed invasion, since the eventual outcome of any form of jihad is subjugation under Sharia law.
The war against Mohammed's madmen has raged on earth since that pedophile, caravan robber, and murderer first tried to get the world to follow his insane ravings. Until it is either eradicated like a colony of rats or contained in such a manner that it consumes itself, it should NEVER be allowed to take root among free people. People who make the mistake of trying to change Islam and trying to "save" the people of that culture expose their fellow man to subjugation and death.
God saves but not the god of Islam and the followers of that god will destroy everything it envelops and subjugates. If missionaries and other good people wish to risk their lives trying to spread love to Muslims, they're free to do so at the risk of their own lives; but to invite Islam into their own country in order to "expose" those people to freedom always results in Islam gaining power through deception, intimidation, and ultimately the sword... we have over fourteen centuries of experience to draw from. There are many forms of Jihad and the results of it are always the same, subjugation.
Well-meaning people with the sincere desire to save a lost world often lose perspective in their zeal to do so. Exposing their nation to Islam in their efforts to save Muslims cost many more lives than they save; such has ALWAYS been the case with Islam, which is the fundamental reason nations have repelled it by force for these many centuries. Consider the cost/benefit ratio in lives and freedom as well as the lessons of history before you support something with such dire consequences.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busy bodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”—C.S. Lewis
