[Muslims] have made hypocrisy an art, and have spun for [themselves] a web of lies that blinds us to the real world around [them].
[Muslims] seethe with grievances and resentment against the West, even as [they] have prospered in the freedom and security of Western democracies.
[Muslims] have inculcated into [their] children false pride, and given them a sense of history that crumbles under critical scrutiny.
[Muslims] preach tolerance yet [they] are intolerant. [Muslims] demand inclusion, yet practise exclusion of gender, of minorities, of those with whom [they] disagree.
[Muslims] repeat endlessly that Islam is a religion of peace, yet too many of [them] display conduct contrary to what [they] profess.
