We hear a lot about that we should be careful about our rhetoric so we don’t come across as Islamophobic since it will help ISIS to recruit people and increase homegrown radicalization. I am here to say that this is nonsense. Look at how careful President Obama was when engaging Muslims and his language. He never criticized Islam, was super nice to Arab and Muslim countries, traveled there, was very respectful to their leaders and their religion but we still had several terrorist attacks in our country by Muslims. Thus, we have tried to be nice to Muslims and watched our language for 8 years under previous administration and the experience and results shows that it does NOT work!
The explanation is simple. The reason is about the ignorance of majority of Leftists about the ideology of Radical Islam. Radical Islam is about surrendering everybody to Allah and implement Sharia laws and the Khalifa. Islam does not say to not concur a people if they are nice to you. There is no difference if we are nice or bad. Their goal is to concur the world and covert everybody to Islam. Actually, if we are nice to them, we make their task easier. They can force their agenda on us easier!
To hard core Muslims, everybody who is not 100% following Koran is infidel. It could be their Muslim neighbor who doesn’t follow every letter of the Koran, it could be any Christian, Buddhist, atheist, gay, etc. No difference. You are still infidel if you are the nicest person on the earth! This is the fact they most people don’t get. Their ideology has nothing to do with our behavior or personality. You are their friend when you surrender to Islam. If you don’t, you are the enemy. It is that simple. Your ethics do not matter.
If you wonder how ISIS manages to recruit people born in US and Western countries, it is very simple. . They point out the majority of the Mosques do not teach the entire Koran and that the Mosques teach the cherry-picked verses of Koran or the sugar-coated version of Islam. The truth is that most Mosques do preach the nicer verses of Koran and teach their congregations to be productive and positive member of their society but ISIS used this an excuse to claim that they are the true Muslims. ISIS makes educational videos about what Koran says about making everyone surrendering to Allah and ask them to join ISIS to be a true Muslim and respond to Allah’s call (i.e., Jihad). This is simple since there are verses in Koran that support their ideology. According to them, as a true Muslim, you are supposed to follow Koran 100%. Thus, joining Jihad becomes your duty. So they teach the young Muslim born in Western countries that they cannot be a true Muslim if they continue go to their Mosques. Joining ISIS makes them a real Muslim.
So what we in West say or do has no impact on Radical Islam’s agenda. They want to establish the Khalifa, focus on violent portions of Koran and advance their agenda regardless of our behavior in West. We either have to accept this fact and figure out what to do or choose to still believe that by being nice to them will make them not follow their agenda.
I have to emphasize that I am NOT writing this to preach hate or scare you. As mentioned above, Mosques do preach the nicer verses of Koran and teach their congregations to be productive and positive member of their society. My goal is to educate you about how the people with radical Islam ideology think and how the Leftist do not get it.
Please read my other blog about how to engage a Muslim in love and I am doing what I am preaching. I am currently part of a church who is dealing with Muslim people and help them to realize the good news of Gospel.
I would love to hear your feedback so please share it with me.
