Reader comment on item: There's No Difference between ISIS and ISIL

Submitted by Dajjal (United States), Sep 12, 2014 at 15:40

ISIL=ISIS=IS. Same men, same material, same ideology. The ideology is the LCD. The LCD is key to the actual identity of the terrorist menace.

One word is common to all three names: Islamic. One affiliation is common to all its members: Islamic. Their flag bears the Shehada. Becoming Shahids is their highest aspiration. Global imposition of Shari'ah is their objective. Somebody oughtta connect the data points and get a clue.

Every name used to identify an organization of Islamic terrorists is an alias for Islam. If we would read and comprehend Islam's canon of scripture, tradition & Jurisprudence we would discover the fatal fact: genocidal, terrorist imperialism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam. Not radilcalism. Not extremism. Islam as Moe revealed and exemplified it. What Allah and Moe said about terror and conquest should curdle or boil the blood of every lover of life and liberty. I have blogged this string of citations frequently, with links to source texts. Anyone can search for it and follow the links. 3:151, 8:12,39,57,60,65,67, 9:5,29,38, 39,111,120,123, 33:26,27, 47:4,49:15, 59:2,13, 61:10-13; Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 & 4.52.220.

Where Islam goes, heads roll and blood flows. Examine the TOC of any Islamic history or biography: they are replete with raid, ghazwat, attack,expedition and conquest. Dropping PC and recognizing objective factual reality is long overdue.
