Why I Like The Islamic State

Reader comment on item: Islam Bulldozes the Past

Submitted by Dave (United States), Mar 20, 2015 at 18:25

The Islamic State is the living embodiment of literal Islam. It thus serves as a sort of warning to those who are trying to convince others of Islam's benignity. It is a wonderful distraction for those "moderate" Muslim regimes who like to make annihilating Israel a national pasttime. It is already drawing strength away from Hezbollah and other members of the Shiite Axis, and has the potential to bog Iran down on its home turf in the future. And, should the Islamic State get too powerful, nobody will cry should a major military invasion be launched against it. IS is the Frankenstein monster that Saudi philanthropy has helped create, meant to to save the world through Islam. Now, the monster has come to life, lives right next door, and is looking to eat Dr. Frankenstein himself.
