Radical Islam and Shari’ah Law (or as I call it, just plain Islam) as I have debated and written about for umpteen years, is premised on the division of the world into Dar al Harb (the abode of war) and Dar al Islam (the abode of Islam). The whole goal of Islam is to bring Dar al Harb into Dar al Islam by jihad or by conversion until the whole world is in Dar al Islam. This is what drives it to war not only against all non-Muslims but against Muslims in countries not governed by shari’ah, which countries they consider as being in Dar al Harb even if the entire population is Islamic. The idea that this is a “religion of peace” is ridiculous and contrary to the tenets of Islam. Are all Muslims murdering jihadis? Of course not. But Islam is a religion of conquest and coercion which leads to the worldwide religious warfare we see played out every day in some part of the world or other. And to compare (as idiots do) Islam with Christianity as “having the same God” is bordering on insanity; “love, joy, peace; longsuffering, gentleness, goodness; faith, meekness, temperance” from the Christian side; while “death to the infidel and the smiting of the necks” from Islam.
Military friends who fought in both wars and served time in the area of Iraq, say it is a “dark, dark, part of the world – fraught with fear and suspicion”. As a Christian, you can almost feel a permeation of evil that transcends thought. The people are steeped in tribal differences, trusting no one – especially strangers. Islam is considered as the ONLY religion, and like the Nazi’s of WWII, the “Thought Police” are everywhere, and total fear grips the populace. Islam is a world-wide cult of evil and nothing better describes it than to never forget the catastrophe of 9/11; an example of the minds of men completely overwhelmed by Satan.
Daniel Greenfield is an expert prognosticator on all things Islamic-Muslim, and he expounds once again on the evils of this ideology; Islam and shari’ah law…
Few divides are as impossible to bridge as those of religion. You either believe or you don’t. When it comes to Islam, non-Muslims are expected to take its goodwill on faith. If you believe your eyes and ears, Islam and violence go together like peanut butter and jelly. But if you believe Muslims and their spin doctors with academic degrees, Muslims are the victims of other religions.
If Muslims fighting Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists are the victims of non-Muslims, what are we to make of Muslims fighting other Muslims in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq? Religious civil wars make it hard to believe that Muslims are the victims of other religions instead of the authors of their own violence.
Religions have a long history of not getting along with one another, but there is only one religion that has never gotten along with any other religion, is engaging in a religious war with every religion that exists, with atheists who have no religion, and even with its own co-religionists. Is all this violence someone else’s fault? Or is it Islam’s fault?
Muslim hostility to Christians and Jews is not a phenomenon that began with the modern State of Israel or American foreign policy. Muslims have warred with Christians and Jews as minorities and persecuted them as majorities. Academic apologists claim that Muslim hostility toward Christians derived from an ongoing conflict, but at no time during the history of Islam until the twentieth century did the Jews have a functioning state.
Israel has conveniently become the focus and explanation for Muslim hostility toward Jews, but that fails to explain over a thousand years of Muslim hatred and persecution … long before Herzl or the IDF. Why did Muslims persecute and kill Jews long before Zionism was even a word? For the same reason that they killed Christians.
