This is, perhaps, the most important post I’ve made to date.
On any number of levels, from any number of GOWP sources, we are constantly barraged by the Leftist meme that violent Islamist individuals and groups who carry out bombings, killings, beheadings, spilling blood in the name of Islam, are the exception and not the rule.
..اسلام به عنوسلام به عنوان اسلام می کند
I said a number of years ago and say now: “Islam IS as Islam DOES.” Nothing more complicated or cerebral than that. To excuse Islam from actions carried out in its name excuses over a thousand years of bloodshed and unnecessary deaths on behalf of a barbarous religion that is unmatched in its ferocity via any other religion on the planet.
Islam isn’t “gray” and it isn’t “nuanced” and it isn’t “subtle.” Islam will and does tell you precisely what it wants day after day after day. And we, the various Western nations, are not listening.
Worse yet, we are choosing not to listen.
“Those who make all Islam their enemy not only succumb to a simplistic and essentialist illusion but they lack any mechanism to defeat it.”
An incredibly simplistic statement in and among itself, promulgated by Leftists.
Most lawful citizens of Western nations are good people. They want to believe in the inherent goodness of people. They want to see the proverbial glass as half full, as opposed to half empty. They want to believe that most issues can be solved with good will, communication, positive intent and low voices.
With the exception of Islam. Which has proven over the past thousand + years that it cannot be reasoned with, it cannot be corrupted, it cannot be subsumed, it cannot be modulated and it cannot be ignored.
Please listen to Colonel Allen West as he happens to nail Islam precisely, and names it for what it is:
Sadly, Allen West refutes feelings and emotions with nothing but solid facts and history and knowledge. To the detriment of Leftists and Muslims and Muslim-apologists.
It really is this simple: Islam is as Islam does.
Islam is a cancer. The problem to date: there is no chemo for Islam.
