There are others who disagree with this benign approach. This latter group sees all the so-called aberrations as inherent and part and parcel of Islam. They believe that it is Islam that actively promotes and is terribly out of sync with the best interests of the 21st century world.

They contend that Islam may have served the primitive Arab people of 14 centuries ago. But by breaking out of its cradle and morphing into a world-dominating crusade has inflicted incalculable harm to its victims as well as those who ended up in its fold.

At present, Islam can be thought of as a stagnant body of water. Over the years, the body of water has become greatly polluted to a point that it has become a breeding medium for all kinds of death-bearing insects such as ‘West Nile Disease’ mosquitoes.

Humankind has suffered horrific wars in the past. Yet, the present multi-form and multi-front war waged by Islamists has the potential of inflicting more suffering and destroying more lives than ever before. Ruthless Islamic forces advance rapidly in their conquests while those of freedom are acquiescing and retreating. Before long, Islam is poised to achieve its Allah-mandated goal of cleansing the earth of all non-Muslims through ‘grand Jihad’ and establish the Islamic Ummah.

Jihadists have searched the scripture and selectively choose those statements and precedents that they do use to legitimize their violent and primitive agenda. The Jihadists, for instance, claim that the Quran itself urges them to make jihad, “jahedoo fee sabeil-u-llah,” (make jihad for the cause of Allah.) The word “jihad” has at least two vastly different meanings. It means exertion. It also stands for making war, and it is the latter that the jihadists invoke as their mandate.

While so-called peaceful Muslims are generally silent, either out of fear, lack of organization, or apathy, Islamists work around the clock and around the world to further their agenda. Hardly a week passes without a Grand Mufti or an Ayatollah who issues pronouncements in support of extremist Islam. The rank-and-file Islamist clergy, for their part, transmit these fatwas and edicts to their flock in mosques and hammer them into the minds of impressionable children in madrassahs. Through this grassroots process, Islam is recruiting greater and greater numbers of adherents. On the one hand, Islamists engage in acts of violence to disrupt the functioning of societies, while on the other they cleverly exploit the freedom they enjoy in non-Islamic lands to subvert them from within.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a former U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander and supposedly a devout Muslim wrote in an article a few years ago (Islamism, not Islam is the Problem):

“Most should understand that strategically, identifying ‘Islam as the problem,’ immediately alienates upwards of one quarter of the world’s population and dismisses our most powerful weapon against the militant Islamists—the mantle of religion and the pulpit of moderate Muslims who can retake our faith from the Islamists.”

Well, of course it does.  Shaming the devil incites the devil, calling the USSR an “evil empire” did not win Ronald Reagan points for diplomacy, but nonetheless, it was an evil empire.  Calling Nazis evil did not make the Germans happy, but they were slaughtering the Jewish Poles down to the last child.  This is also why liberal appeasers in 1938, who refused to call Hitler “evil,” got the world into so much trouble by creating a similarly confused intellectual forum about the Nazis.  They tried to build bridges to the “moderate” Nazis; they lectured clear thinkers about the dangers of inciting German hatred by pointing out the truth. They accused conservatives of being “just as fascist” as the Nazis; they sent ambassadors and made treaties and trusted that the moderates would come out and “reform” their zealous leadership. 

Humanity, with the Muslims in the lead, must stop deluding themselves and abandon Islam altogether. It is really nothing more than an infested corpse that needs be properly disposed of.

We all need to move on. To move away from exclusionary, primitive, and tribal mentality to a vision of all humanity being one, with justice and liberty for all.
