Sweet, Sweet Surrender: Kos Diarist Says 'Convert to Islam'

Is this Kos entry just heavy handed sarcasm? Hard to tell with KosKidz; they don't feel bound by the rules of logic as the rest of us:
All in all, converting to Islam would be a small price to pay for an end to the killing and maiming of our sons and daughters, not to mention the billions of dollars we could put to better use than fighting this perpetual war.
In any case, most of the commenters are taking it seriously:
It crossed my mind just after 9-11.... (1+ / 0-)

If I were President.....I might call bin Laden's bluff and convert...maybe declare America a Muslim nation.......which, actually, American Muslims report that America is, in many ways--the spirit, not the rituals.

If it would avert so much tragedy, I'd even make a pilgrimmage to Mecca...
Unfortunately, according to a Kos Muslim, it wouldn't be enough:
As a Muslim, of course, yes, I want non-Muslims to embrace Islam, but the reason for the "conversions" is something few Muslims would want to see happen. In Islam, intentions are very important. What is your intention for becoming Muslim? To end the war on terror? Sorry. While that goal is laudable, it's not enough. We don't want people to become Muslim for such a petty reason...
