An Islamic State: Yeah, So?

This morning I was thinking about a quote I saw posted by a news feed I receive every morning.  It read, “We will win because Americans don’t realize…we do not need to defeat you militarily; we only need to fight long enough for you to defeat yourself by quitting.”

The comment came from one of the masterminds of the 9/11 tragedy, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

As brazen as it seemed, the more I thought about it, the more I have come to the conclusion that he is right.  The Muslims will win the day, even though Islam itself is self-destructive.

Ask the average American about Islam, what it stands for, or even who Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is, and you will get either a blank stare, some kind of drivel about it being one of the great monotheistic religions, or a rambling diatribe about “towel heads.”

Very few really know anything about Islamic history, doctrine, or the goals it has in mind.

When it comes to an Islamic State amid the United States, most Americans are not informed, much less do they really care, about what that is all about either.

In fact, in many ways, our negligence and carelessness have opened us to the acceptance of an Islamic State, and often that without actually even knowing we are doing it..

Our main defense to discouragement of an Islamic State, namely a biblical worldview, is held by less than half of those known as Evangelical “pastors,” which further means that by far less than half-of-the-half following the pastors subscribe to a biblical worldview either.

Leftist elites control and influence our children’s minds through public education and the secular media, so as to have them believe that all religions are basically the same, thereby mitigating the Christian message even further, which is based on absolute truth, while exalting atheistic relativism as the only answer whatever problems that might beset us.

Both of those conditions have led to a proliferation of fraud, whereby greedy opportunists and self-exalted “experts” on the subject have managed to capture the camera lights and public attention.

Those opportunists and experts never actually get in the battle, but stay on the periphery collecting donations and promising the moon, while causing hardship for those who really do know what they are talking about and are trying to influence society for the absolute good.

In short, the United States is prime for an Islamic State.  Over 2,000 mosques now dot the American landscape, with more than 80 of them determined to be centers of “radical” activity.

With each passing year, the vacuum created by kicking Jesus Christ to the curb, except during holidays of convenience, is filled with more relativistic buzz terms like “diversity,” “tolerance,” and “Islamophobe,” meaning there is less and less substantive argumentation, debate, or discussion about why the Islamic ideal is not ideal for anyone, including the Muslims.

So, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was right; the Muslims will not have to wage a physical war, necessarily, with Americans in order to subjugate them one day.

All they will have to do is wait.  Finally, when enough Americans have come to the conclusion that they have nothing to fight for, they will simply bow down and submit.

This is the hope of the real, true blue, “radical” Muslim.  It is what Americans can one day expect, when they have simply grown too tired, empty-headed, and weak-willed to go on.
