Days of Change

Extremist | May 2, 2013

One of the things that has been used by the left and their lapdogs in the media is redefining the religious terrorist. The Boston bombers were “radicalized” to become “extremists.” The terrorist commonly known as speed bump was seen as a nice guy before he discovered Islam. His girlfriend dumped him after the conversion and he eventually ended up with no American friends. His companions were foreign students willing to hide his bombs and Vaseline. Was he radicalized by extremism or  Islam?

First of all. there is no moderate Islam. In the US alone, something like 80% of Imams are more supportive of terror than our government would usually find acceptable. Most Muslim populations live in countries that have a far too cozy relationship with Islam and use it for political purposes. There are some countries that are secular enough that violence is not condoned in the name of Islam, but that is becoming a thing of the past. Islam can be interpreted moderately, but it is a tortured interpretation, much like the “Christian” who thinks gay marriage and abortion are fundamental rights.

Her’s another case in point. While Christians have missionaries around the world, Muslim recruitment is very popular in prisons. It’s where Malcolm Little became Malcolm X. His conversion came through the use of racism to paint the Bible as oppressive to Blacks. That vision was shattered when Malcolm X made a journey to Mecca and found Muslims of all races and colors (including White) worshiping with him. He came back separating Islam from Black liberation. He would be considered a race traitor now.

When the Bible was used by slave owners to keep their slaves in line, they instead learned the value of freedom. Even looking at history, Christians were far more likely to go to war to defend their religion from sinister forces than to initiate a conflict. Most wars fought in the name of Christianity were fought by nation-state using Christianity, much like Muslim countries use Islam to reach political goals.

When read directly, the Koran can easily be seen as a call to war against non-believers. This may be an outdated concept, but most of the Muslim scholarship in the world reinforces this interpretation. Until that changes, terrorists are not practicing radical Islam. They are practicing Islam more actively.

  1. terrorists are not practicing radical Islam. They are practicing Islam more actively.

    I have observed elsewhere that Islam is not a religion. It is a political system based on violent conquest and sharia law.
