Radical Islam: A Crusade to Convert, Subjugate or Annihilate The World
(This is a transcript of Al Stefanelli’s “Voice Of Reason” segment on my American Heathen® Internet Radio Show)
“We are at war against infidels…I ask all Islamic nations, all Muslims, all Islamic armies, and all heads of Islamic states to join the Holy War. There are many enemies to be killed or destroyed…the final aim of which is to put Koranic law in power from one end of the earth to the other.” – Ayatollah Khomeini
I am not an expert on Islam. The Islamic faith is complicated in that there are different factions, sects, definitives, interpretations, cultural issues and many other factors that are involved in this religion. As with Christianity, there is also a fair amount of misunderstanding and misinformation. I have made it quite clear throughout my career as an activist that there are differences in Christianity that range from the liberal to the extremist, and Islam is no different.
As with many of the Christians I know, most of the Muslims I interact with are not militant. They get up, go to work or school, try to get through their day with minimal conflicts and integrate in their communities very well.
But this is not about them. It is about the radical, militant Muslims who strap explosives to their chests, fly planes into buildings, participate in honor killings, usurp governments and threaten to behead anyone who dares to disagree with them or have the audacity to render an image of their prophet.
The very fact that radical Muslims issue death threats for cartooning Muhammad, as well as the likelihood that I will get yet another fatwa for my execution (already have seven), is revealing of just how twisted this faction of Islam is. Death threats for speaking out against horrific crimes and demented ideologies, as well as the practice of brutally murdering innocent women for the utterly ridiculous “crime” of blasphemy is enough evidence of how psychotic and delusional radical Islam is.
The sight of Muslim extremists wearing sandwich boards that suggest the beheading of anyone who states that Islam is not a religion of peace speaks for itself. I have no doubt that many Muslims try to defend their faith by saying that honor killings are not part of Islam, but they are. Maybe just not part of the Islam they practice
Islamic apologists are popping up all over the media from cable news to YouTube for the express purpose of explaining suicide-bombers who detonate their explosives in crowded marketplaces, as well as all the other innumerable horrific acts committed under the banner of Islam, as not being the “true spirit of Islam.” No, not all Muslims are terrorists who go to sleep at night and wake the next morning thinking of all the ways that they can rid the world of the infidel, but there are enough of them that it should cause us more concern than we are warranting because like Christianity, Islam is a meme. It is a virus of the mind, a mental disease that is highly infectious and as I already iterated, when you add ideologies that support acts of violence and doctrines that call for world domination, you end up with the physical manifestation of unconditional obedience to a twisted, barbaric philosophy that we know as terrorism.
In spite of what the Islamic apologists are spouting at every available opportunity, radical Islam is not interested in the premise of freedom that the United States was founded upon. A Muslim extremist does not and cannot believe in freedom of choice. They are unconditionally submissive to the will and decree of their god and their militant, radical doctrines demand that the world be converted, subjugated or annihilated.
Fear and intimidation can garner many things, but respect is not one of them. Respect is something to be earned through actions that are beneficial either to society as a whole, or to an individual or group of individuals. This is a concept that is lost on the Muslim extremist. Horrific violence is often the result when Muslim extremists believe that Islam has been disrespected, and in some cases, entire countries are living in fear behind dead-bolted tongues.
However, many of us have about had enough of the politically correct talking-heads demanding that we respect Islam just for the sake that it exists. Like Christianity, Islam has factions and sects that do not deserve respect by virtue of the destruction and disaster that has been propagated in the name of these Islamic factions. Their activities continue to be an international scourge on humanity.
The intentions of many individuals, the President of the United states included, who endeavor all of us to be respectful of Islam may come from the desire for humanity to live in harmony with each other. But the reality of the situation is that a relatively small subset of Islam seems to be controlling the strings of the world as if humanity were their own, personal marionettes. Our eyes are inundated every single solitary day with images of death, destruction and acts of terrorism committed by Muslim fanatics.
No matter how loudly the apologists defend their faith, people are dying every day, sometimes for the simple act of not being Muslim. Humanity as a whole should be ashamed for allowing the situation of fundamental Islamic terrorism to get to the state where we are so afraid of inciting horrific acts of violence that we are allowing them to slowly, methodically and systematically succeed in their effort to adhere literally to the command of world domination.
We are acting in fear of having the shit kicked out of us by that giant rolled-up newspaper we know as Radical Islam, which is not merely an extreme version of Islam, but a cultural and social ideology that dominates all the aspects of the life of the Muslim extremist. It is a violent movement with a primary objective of domination of everything it can, and the suppression of all other things in its path, including other beliefs, movements and ideologies. As I have already stated, Radical Islam is dedicated by any means possible to the domination of the world.
Just because all Muslims are not radical or politically motivated does not mean that the ones who are do not possess the capacity to put the whole world at risk. In addition to terrorism, Radical Islam has other dangerous tactics such as censorship and the concept of jihad.
The constant touting by American conservatives that the United States is a Christian Nation is not helping at all, since many Muslim extremists take historical conflict such as the Crusades in to account.
Religions are what their adherents understand them to be, and that understanding has a lot to do with what how leaders of those religions interpret their holy books. This is as true for fundamental Christianity as it is for radical Islam. Until a better understanding of the differences between mainstream and radical Islam is reached, we will continue to be at the mercy of those Muslim extremists who live their lives according to Surah 47:4 , which states
“when you meet the unbelievers, smite at their necks.”
As the owner of one of those non-Islamic necks, I will be keeping a close eye on the Islamic extremists as they operate on our planet.
