MAGDI ALLAM: TERRORISM IS THE MATURE FRUIT OF THE QURAN

Recent convert to the Catholic Church, Magdi Allam, has written an open letter to the pope requesting him to inform his top aide for relations with Muslims, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, that Islam is not an intrinsically good religion and that Islamic terrorism is not the result of a minority gone astray. Allam's communication preceeds the Catholic-Muslim Forum which is to take place Nov. 4-6.

From CNS: In [his] letter, posted on his Web site Oct. 20, Allam said he wanted to tell the pope of his concern for "the serious religious and ethical straying that has infiltrated and spread within the heart of the church."

What follows is an excerpt of a new book by Peter Schweizer called Makers and Takers which fleshes out the ugly truth.

"[G]o to the streets of a liberal enclave like San Francisco, Seattle or Vermont. There will be plenty of expensive boutiques, antique dealers, health spas, sushi bars and upscale coffee shops. But you won’t see very many children. The reason is not that right-wingers have dumped buckets of birth control pills into the San Francisco municipal water supply. The simple fact is that many on the liberal left today just don’t want to have children.

"A 2004 U.S. survey showed that a typical sample of 100 unrelated adults who called themselves liberal will have 147 children. That contrasts with the typical conservative, who is likely to have 208 children per 100 unrelated adults. That’s 41% more.

"The liberal Northeastern states — Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, and New York — have the lowest fertility rates in the country. They also have the lowest percentage of population under the age of five. In progressive San Francisco, there are more dogs
