Societal Ignorance of Islam Will Be Its Demise

In a world where we have split-second access and transference of information, brainwashed ideas about the value and necessity of a college education, and a proliferation and migration of Muslims to traditionally non-Muslim parts of the world, it never ceases to amaze me just how ignorant we are when it comes to the religious and political ideas of Islam.

Take, for instance, this past week when Hillary Clinton Tweeted, “Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” What?

For the past fourteen centuries, Islamists faithfully following the dictates of Muhammad found in the Koran, Hadith, and Sunnah have murdered more people in the recorded history of humanity (270 million) than any other humanistic ideology. And that is not adversarial? Murdering the infidel, as the Koran repeatedly prescribes, is considered “peaceful and tolerant” according to what objective standard?

Then, there is the insistence of Barak Obama, who compared the Syrian refugees to “tourists,” as he blithely dismissed and insulted Americans who wished to be more cautious than cavalier when dealing with the influx of Syrians fleeing their homeland. So, the Syrians are just touring the country, Mr. President? Just how many tourists do you know that have the historical pedigree of those who have murdered 270 million people? And Americans should not be concerned about that?

Moreover, Obama’s comments that ISIS was “contained,” were just plain asinine, given the bombing of the Russian airliner, as well as attacks in Paris and Mali. That “JV” squad causing so much mayhem throughout the world is about as contained as Obama’s nauseating rhetoric, with or without the teleprompter.

Most recently, however, several non-Muslim protesters have showed up at a mosque in Irving, Texas, bearing arms and attempting to make some point about its attendees. While some on a social media outlet have made valid points about the inanity of acting like those they are seeking to intimidate, the general tenor of those critical of the protesters was one of pure ignorance. The social media pundits made it perfectly clear that they did not have a clue about what Muslims believe or what their history entailed. They just wanted to feel good about themselves, while ignoring the overall goal of Islamists to replace the “jahili society” with their religio-politico ideal.

It is this very ignorance and touchy-feely criticism that is vacuous of the facts, both historical and doctrinal, which is leading to the demise of Europe today and the Americas tomorrow. Nevertheless, given the reality that fewer and fewer westerners have an objective reason for living at all, much less dying for something of value, it comes as no wonder that those same persons sputter the mindless stupidity that they do in the social forums. In fact, their commentary is reminiscent of those ready for the picking by those in any number of religious cults. The only difference now is that the cult happens to be Islam.

After reading, studying, and writing a dissertation on Islam, I have concluded that it is an “adversary” to every living, breathing, and thinking human being, including those who claim to be Muslims. Its history is replete with one death wish after another and its doctrines lead people straight to hell. Death and hell are not the friends of anyone, nor do they engender peace. Those are the facts and they are indisputable.

If society continues down this road of ignoring the facts about Islam, all the naysayers, mockers, and ignoramuses will soon meet their demise in the very ways that ISIS—who are Muslims and have everything to do with Islam—keeps broadcasting to the world on an almost daily basis. Unfortunately, they will drag others to the execution with them. To argue otherwise will only compound the terror to come. If you do not believe me, please consider the words of Seyyid Qutb, who wrote of the dreamed for homeland of the Muslim.

This Islamic homeland is a refuge for any who accepts the Islamic Shari’ah to be the law of the state, as is the case with the Dhimmies. But any place where the Islamic Shari’ah is not enforced and where Islam is not dominant becomes the home of Hostility (Dar-ul-Harb) for both the Muslim and the Dhimmi. A Muslim will remain prepared to fight against it, whether it be his birthplace or a place where his relatives reside or where his property or any other material interests are located.

But, then again, this is just another bit of information readily accessible to those who really want to educate themselves about Islam. What is done with it remains to be seen. Thus far, though, the prospects are not promising, as ignorance continues to rule the day.
