Ask them to explain these quotes and the video linked here.
Alija Itzbegovic, once Président of Bosnia, said to be “very moderate,” stated in his 1970 Islamic Declaration:
“There can be neither peace nor coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic social and political institutions. The Islamic movement must and can take over political power as soon as it is morally and numerically so strong that it can not only destroy the existing non-Islamic power, but also to build up a new Islamic one”
-Dr Wafa Sultan agrees:
“There is no moderate Islam Islam is different from any other religion . Islam is not a religion, Islam is a political ideology ”It seems to me sometimes it is much easier to make my point known rather in the Arab world then to penetrate the American mind. I can understand why. You are living by the American ethical code. You don’t want to judge anybody based on their religious affiliation. But you need to understand that ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION, ISLAM IS A VERY DANGEROUS POLITICAL IDEOLOGY.

I’ve talked to some of my Muslim friends about such words. They call it nonsense, rhetoric, not representative of their own beliefs. Of course, like many Christians, they would like to see others join their faith. But never by force.
