Islam: The Folly of Appeasement The Folly of Appeasement

In the interest of the past posts, I'm in a mode to harp a bit on the necessity of identifying what the War on Terror really is, and by doing that, identifying what is a proper response to it. Although the Bush administration has been aggressive in the past in the current war, my cynicims raises to the boiling point by calling Islam a religion of peace. Further from the truth. There may be peaceful Muslims, but in the teaching of Islam, if a Muslim or "believer" is to follow Allah in Islam, he must engage in "jihad." Plain and simple.

Author of the book The Sword of the Prophet, Serge Trifkovic outlines a very simple strategy, we must face fighting a religious war. Here's an exerpt:

"Changing the self-defeating trend demands recognition that the West is in a war of religion, whether it wants that or not and however much it hates the fact. This war is being fought, on the Islamic side, with the deep and unshakeable condition that the West is on its last legs. The success of their demographic deluge enhances the image of “a candy store with the busted lock,” and that view is reinforced by the evidence from history that a civilization that loses the urge for biological self-perpetuation is indeed finished. Even after its unfinished victory in Afghanistan, America is viewed as a paper tiger, with F-16s and dollars but no strong heart and no long-term stamina. Indeed, it is uncertain that anything significant has taken place in Afghanistan: the Afghan Talibs were forced to change their coats as one set of Islamists took a lot of money for replacing another."

Read the article and see if Trifkovic doesn't appeal to logic. And as you do, know that the part within you that has been conditioned by our political correctness may cause you to do violence against reason. Fight it, my friends. It's time for a "jihad" against illogic and unreason.

Yup, you are completely correct. Anyone who has read the Koran or studied the religion knows you're right.

I wish I was wrong. I'd like to think that Islam is a religion of peace. I do believe that there are Muslims who are for peace, and that is to their credit personally, not to their religion. They hold a belief that is a contravention of their religion. In that case, may all Muslims, for the cause of justice, rebel against their religion!!!

Ok, will buy into this one as well. First thoughts.. you cannot kill an idea with a gun. The Romans tried it 2000 years ago, and look what happened. You cannot kill a faith with massacre.. the Germans tried it 60 or so years ago. Americans will not defeat "islam' with the military. If it turns into a war of attrition between "Fundamental Christians" and "Fundamental Islamists".. we are in for a long one, with much 'collateral damage'.

Yes, I agree with you, you cannot fight Islam with a gun. That is getting close to my point in these posts. It is not a war against Terrorists, or Al-Qaida, or OBL, or Zarqauwi, et al. It is an ideology first, that must be defeated with another ideology, and most assuredly it is not moral relativistic religious pluralism or secularism...the brand that we Americans like to export. It will require, in my estimation, a surge in religious activity that is meant to alter the beliefs of these people. If we try to combat with pluralism, we may be tolerant of them, but their religion will NEVER tolerate us. They will kill us or convert us. They do not know the meaning of pluralism. Allah forbids it with the threat of death.

This, of course, has it a large set of challenges, since our religion, namely Christianity, is so divided that we cannot agree how to go about making our religios impact on others. More on this later.
