Why is Islam fighting the world, including its own more peaceful sects?
The ultimate goal of the fundementalist Muslim is an Islamic state from Indonesia to Spain. This only matters due to this areas oil supply and its command of vital sea lanes. On top of this, Muslims are in a position, via "peaceful jihad" of births
, to overtake England, Italy, Spain, portions of Russia, France and Germany
. Iran is poised to gain nuclear weapons. Pakistan has them, and is likely to fall to fundementalism. India's ages old Hindu culture is being de-emphasied. Small bands of men will soon have nuclear weapons, and no one in the West has the guts to stop them. Thus the West does not have time for moral platitudes and equivocations regarding its mortal enemy. It does not have time to preach to the savage the glories of civilization. The West has about fifty years by most estimates, and after this it will be submerged and superseded. The West either destroys Islam or is destroyed by it. Islam leaves us no other alternative. Wars of religion are a zero-sum game. Islam is first and foremost an ideal enforced by the sword. Only when this sword is parried and broken by a heavier sword will its dogmas decline.Islam delend est.
Calling for the destruction of Islam does not mean that every Muslim has to die; only that we must be willing to make it so. When total warfare was waged against Germany is was not neccessary to kill all Germans, just 10 million of them. One cannot reasonably expect Muslims to fight to the last. But the must be faced with a very real choice: cease the jihad as one or die as. They have given us no other choice.
For many in the west the Crusades are ancient history. They have been forgotten. But among the bards of Damascus the tales of Saladin still ring out. No matter how much we in the West condemn the Crusaders the Islamic world will never forget and never forgive. We gain nothing by spitting upon the deeds of our forefathers. Secular humanism has made the grave error of lumping together every religion. It has thus lost the power of discernment. Its cutting sword has grown so used to cutting into the Christian faith that it has come to see Christianity as the greatest evil on earth. It seeks to destroy Christianity and to this end it gives Islam a "get out of criticism free" card. When criticism of Islam is offered to the secularist, he avoids the question by pulling out the book of Joshua and thus equating the Jihad which threatens us all to the long over conquest of Canaan.
Basic facts can dispel any comparison between Christians and Moslems, or the Koran and Bible.
First, Moslems do not worship "God". They worship Allah, "the God" in Arabic. The God of the Bible(Yahweh, or "I am that I am") is not the same god of the Koran. The notion of the Triune Godhead is regarded as heretical by Muslims. Allah is a tribal deity whoses tribe has managed to carve a portion of the world out for itself. The teachings of Christ have provided a balance to the violence present in the Old Testament. Nothing of the kind exists in Islam.
Second, there is a basic Islamic view of the world. The world is in two camps according to Islam: the House of Islam and the House of War. The meaning is clear. Christianity has no concept of the world like this. While violent portions of the Bible certainly exist, theology of Christianity since St. Augustine has tended to move in the opposite direction. Islam will not allow peace. Ever. Islam has bloody borders. There does not exist a nation on earth which borders and Islamic nation that is not under assault. From China to Spain the tale is the same: Jihad.
Third, Muhammad is seen as the model of a man by Muslims. Christians believe the same about Jesus. Unfortunately for mankind, Muhammad was no Jesus, no Buddha, no Asoka. In order to draw an accurate comparison, Muhammad is more like Joshua, Moses, Isaiah and Christ all rolled together. He is considered by Muslims as an example to follow, an example set by the Hadith and backed up by biographical works. If Muhammad was the model of the perfect man then we should all marry six year olds, rape captive women, kill unarmed merchants, engage in terroristic warfare, plunder, kill our families if challenged, take multiple wives, take slaves and kill all Jews. If you think this is unfair, or that Islam is really not that bad, take the time to read the faithfreedom.org Sirat Rasoul Allah which I have linked to in this piece.
These beliefs come ogether in a witches brew and have prdocued the most effective killing machine of conquest man has ever known: Islam. The list of Jihads, past and present, show us that Islam has lashed into virtually every nation. No people or belief system is free of its destruction.
But something in the West is changing, or at least in America. Decades of the Cultural Marxism have not completely succeeded in destroying our faculty of reason. Many, after the 9-11 attacks, this author included, sought the truth from facts. We all went out and read the bestsellers which now line bookshelves. We turned to pundits. But they gave us only a bit of the truth, followed by inane platidues devoid of sense. Next we turned to scholars and finally to the Islamic texts themselves. What we found in them was terrible. Islam embodies every evil we were told was true of all religions. With Islam exposed one has to look for new solutions. It was in answer to this question that the sources are silent. They offer nothing new, no new ideals, no new spirit, but platitudes of a different sort.
The only question worth asking is: What is to be done?
Can we democratize a society whose worldview is diameterically opposed to democractic principles?
Can we sit by and do nothing?
Can we simply go after individual actors?
Or can we wage total war, the kind of war which defeated the fascists?

But Muslims still deploy the "Islam is a peaceful religion" lie.
Am I attacking Islam from the outside? Take Muhammad's word for it.
From the Koran:
(Text via "Prophet of Doom" Koran, which has five major translations to work from)
"Permission to fight (against disbelievers) is given to those (believers) who are fought against, because they have been wronged and surely, Allah is Able to give them (believers) victory" [Quran 22:39]*
"Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (anything worshipped other than Allah e.g. Satan). So fight you against the friends of Satan; ever feeble is indeed the plot of Satan."[Quran 4:76]
"Do you fear them? Allah has more right that you should fear Him if you are believers. Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of believing people. And remove the anger of their (believers') hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise." [Quran9:13-1]
"So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior ( in victory )if you are indeed (true) believers" [Quran 3:139
“So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world). But if they cease, Allah is Seer of what they do.”
“They are surely Infidels who say Christ, the Messiah
is God.” (5:72)
What would Muhammad do? Context will be important to establish what the next verses say. Muhammad fled his native Mecca for Yathrib, a city built and fed by the Jewish tribes of Arabia. He promptly began to raid the caravans of Mecca. He was the aggressor. Finally the Meccans had enough. Amr ibn Hisham, a noble Meccan, led out the warriors of the city to fight Muhammad. His name was later changed to "Abu Jahl" or Son of Ignorance. This will make what happens next much worse.
From the Sira :Ishaq:304
“Abd Allah bin Mas’ud said, ‘I found Abu Jahl in the throws of death. I put my foot on his neck because he had grabbed me once at Mecca and had hurt me. Then I said, Has Allah disgraced you and put you to shame, O enemy of Allah?’ ‘In what way has he disgraced me?’ he asked. ‘Am I anything more important than a man whom you have killed? Tell me, to whom is the victory?’ I said,
‘To Allah and his Messenger.’”
One of the Meccan merchants said: Ishaq:342 “I wonder at foolish men like these who sing frivolously and vainly of the slain at Badr. This was nothing more than an impious and odious crime. Men fought against their brothers, fathers, and sons. Any with discernment and understanding recognize the wrong that was done here.”
Ishaq:308 “When the Apostle was in Safra, Nadr was assassinated. When Muhammad reached Irq al-Zabyah he killed Uqbah. When the Holy Prophet ordered him to be killed, Uqbah said, ‘Who will look after my children, Muhammad?’ “Hellfire,’ the Apostle replied, and he was killed.”

If the Islam is a "religion of peace" then I guess the following never happened:
-The Library of Alexandria must not have been burned by Arabs, who, like the rioters in Afghanistan, believed in the self-sufficiency of the Koran.
-Kabul must still be a Hindu city
-Byzantium must still be alive and well
-Persia must still be the great civilization it once was, with Zoroastrians in bounty
-Hindustan must never have been invaded. Muhammad bin Qasim never invaded the Sindh. Debal, Mathura and Dehli must never have burned.
-Thus, Pakistan will have to give up its national hero, Mahmud of Ghazni
, and erase his deeds
-Yathrib must still be Yathrib, a Jewish city, not "Medina". So all the maps have to be changed thus
Wishful thinking has killed millions before. Today the monolithic opinion of American media, government and academia is exactly what many have voiced: That Islam is a religion "hijacked" by Wahabis or Al-Qadea, or at worst, maybe five-percent of Moslems who are "extreme".
Wahabis were not in the early Arab armies. They did not scale Jib-al-Tariq. Al-Qaeda did not fight at the Battle of Talas
and smash the Chinese. It was not "extremists" who stormed Constantinople.
It was Muslims, doing exactly what the Koran told them to.
Many believed Germany had no ambition, only to return to it's glory, or build an Empire like the British. Many people excused or apologized for the Germans. In today's world they would say German Nationalism was hijacked by the Nazis. Is Islam Nazism? For the Moslems following their faith it is damn close. Hitler is back, alive and well, but this time has a religion to call his own and believers in a claimant prophet to follow him into hell.
