Calling evil good and good evil

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" (NKJV)

I remain continually baffled at world leaders these days. From
: Jacques Chirac said "We must avoid any confusion between Islam, which is of course a respected and upright religion, and radical Islamism, which is a totally different form of behavior that is political in nature." WAKE UP Mr. Chirac, Islam is not a peaceful religion. It never has been. As the Pope has recently said (albeit if it is a bit out of context), Prophet Muhammad brought "things only evil and inhuman." Christians are slandered all the time; do we thence start to riot in the streets burning whoever it was that made the comment in effigy? The Christian gospel is spread by the preaching of the Word; Islam is spread by the sword. Christianity sets people free; Islam brings people into bondage. What more blatant contrast could there be?

I long for the day when evil is called evil and people stop making excuses for Islam.
