Islam is a set of memes, a series of conflicting ideas.
Ideas are not threats in themselves, they only become threats when they are embraced by individuals who then use that meme for their own ends.
For example Marxism. The theories of Marx were the unknown ideas of an unknown ex-German Jewish emigre in London who wrote in the corner of the British Library and who was unknown except amongst a small circle of revolutionaries and lunatics.
No-one read him and the meme of marxism remained just an obscure set of ideas drifting around the collective consciousness of mankind with a myriad other insane memes.
The ideas of Marxism were wisps in the wind, febrile and fragile thought forms with no substance and no existence.
It was not until a few Russian revolutionaries led by Lenin took up that meme, politicised it, used it to start a revolution in Russia and then used it to create one of the largest and most powerful empires in human history - the Sovie Union, that the meme of Marxism became the monster that almost destroyed the planet.
Ideas only kill when Men give themselves to them.
Memes are nothing until they lodge in a human brain and then become 'real'.
It is only once an meme infects a mind and that mind then transmits that meme into reality as actions evolving in time, that the meme becomes a threat.
This is explained best in the most superb book of the last twenty years 'The Lucifer Principle' by Howard Bloom.
This is why Islam is not the threat, it is the Imams that use Islamic memes and the Koran to grab power, resources, land and money for themselves who are the threat.
The meme seeks to grow, to conquer, to devour resources just as a wolf does, just as a man does.
Memes justify the crimes of men, and that is why men give themselves to memes.
The meme and the man are in the perfect symbiotic relationship for each feeds on the other.
It is the Imams who translate the Koran as justifying murder, rape, slaughter etc in the name of Islam who are the threat - not Islam itself.
It is their Fatwas that lagitimise murder, war and hate. The imams use the memes to justify their crimes.
This is the same with all memes - such as Christianity that turned the teachings of a poverty stricken spiritual aescetic into the most powerful secular political and religious empire in history that slaughtered millions in its name and in the name of Jesus Christ - The Holy Roman Empire with a Pope more powerful than kings.
It is the Imams, the Preists and the Rabbis and the gurus and teachers that use a meme to empower themselves, enrich themselves and impose their will on others that are the enemy.
A Holy Book is just a collection of ideas that mean nothing until someone believes in them.
Those ideas only prosper and grow when they are fed on fresh blood.
The meme is just an idea, it does not exist until someone takes it up and gives it form in the real world.
A meme is not a threat until someone is prepared to kill in the name of the meme.
The only way to defeat the islamist threat is to create new memes that counteract the deadly Islamist memes.
This requires an Islam of the individual spirit, an Islam not of Imams or the Koran but of the spirit.
Just as modern Christianity must rediscover the spirituality of Christianity and reject the power of the Church and its cult of power, so must Islam and Judaism and all other religions.
The age of the dictatorship of the Books, Imams, Preists, Gurus and Rabbis must be replaced by the Era of the Spirit, an era of individuals seeking their own spiritual revelation.
Only when the last of the Holy Books, the Imams, the Preists, the Rabbis and the Gurus are replaced by memes of the spirit will we be free of the poisonous memes of the past and the fools and criminals that use those memes to justify their crimes.
