I see people making a sweeping-generalization that Islam has been murdering people for 1435 years. They are right.
IS is not a nation state. They are a natural outgrowth of Islam, as has been, every single one of the “other Islamic organizations just like it”. Why is it, dear reader, that the “others” are “just like it”? Because they all practice the same faith, per chance?
Islam is a political ideology, masquerading as a religion. Islamic State began as ISIS (Iraq & Syria), then they gained momentum and changed their name to ISIL (Iraq & the Levant meaning “the rise, place where the sun rises”, as viewed from Rome – i.e. all of the Middle East).
Now, they are but the latest iteration of the Islamic State (Caliphate). The Caliphate is the management team of the political ideology, as this “succession” was insisted upon by Muhammad, before his death.
The goal of every Muslim is to see the Ummah (ummat al-islamiyah – collective of all faithful Muslims) inhabiting and governing the whole of the earth. This must happen before the resurrection (yawm ad-qiyamah) and day of judgment (yawn ad-deen), belief in which is one of the 6 pillars of faith (iman). Their hope is in the final Caliphate, which shall be ruled with an iron fist, by their version of Jesus (Isa), as he lays waste to all Christians, Jews, and other assorted non-believers (kafir – infidel).
Do not fool yourselves into believing the pap about Christians & Jews being “the people of the book”. What you are not being told is that only a very few Christians & Jews qualify as “people of the book”. If you believe in a trinity, or that God has ever taken the form of man (Jesus, Krishna, Budda), you are a kafir and as such, a perfectly legitimate target during war – for which the mujj believes he will be greatly rewarded.
They have proven over the past 1435 years that Islam is spread through the sword, as well as demographics. In fairness, they are forbidden from fighting you, unless you are actively fighting them… or oppressing them… or allowing them to be oppressed. Then, it’s perfectly okay to kill you and your children, because Allah knows best and sees all (masa’allah).
Before the Day of Judgment comes, each and every faithful Muslim will be required to find and kill all remaining Jews & Christians. We are not at war with Islam, but Islam is sure-as-shit at war with us … and everyone else who is non-Islamist. They have been for 1435 years.
Making apologies to them or for them has done favors for ABSOLUTELY NO ONE.
The aberration we are currently witnessing in Iraq & Syria is only so, because a minority have declared war upon the non-believers. This happens in cycles. There are periods of growth and decline, but Islam never cedes ground it has seized (through war, subterfuge, or demographics) without being forced to do so.
Charles Martel “Matamoros” (Moor Killer), did just that. If we wish to see the continued existence of Western culture, we must have the resolve to fight.
Otherwise, you can calmly bow your head, in fear and shame, and pay your Jizya (2nd class citizen tax – for protection) so that you’re allowed to pray inside your own home and never discuss your faith with anyone (or have your head ceremoniously removed from it’s base).
If you are okay with me living as I see fit, and worshiping (or not) as I see fit, then we have no quarrel. If you believe that I can live and worship as I see fit – so long as I pay, then we have a definite problem.
You can take your beliefs, your prophet, and your tax and shove them up your ass.
