Machines of Rage Operating as Tools of Hatred Against Common Humanity

Reader comment on item: Islam Bulldozes the Past

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Mar 23, 2015 at 11:26

Why is there so much confusion as to why ISIS/ISIL/IS Islamists conduct themselves as they do; or more to the point, why do those who hypothecate some alternative motives for these barbaric actions seem to not realize there is more to what these merchants of evil do than what meets the eye? There is no more hyperbole left to obfuscate the obvious - ISIS/ISIL/IS are the frontrunners, the point team, the pathfinders for an evil that cannot be comprehended in any civilized context of humanity; and they are bent on a pan that is intended to alter the reality of humanity and its roots to the truth of a past ISIS/ISIL/IS Islamists do not want to explain away. To do that, they must erase the common history they are not willing to allow to infiltrate their seared sense of conscience, whatever they may have left.

In a twist of the Al Gore coined phrase, there is an 'inconvenient truth' about the Middle East. Human history has been recorded for having made a mess of life and death, and sometimes the incapability to love life as it could be because of an 'ages' old enmity that can be traced to the beginning of the human race - a hatred of brother against brother. There also ancient spiritual implications that form part of the context - where does hatred come from in the first place?

That being posited, to understand why these destroyers of ancient common history do these things with so much rage is because they have pledged allegiances to a hatred that cannot be understood unless one understands the true target of their rebellion - Israel and the Almighty Sovereign that gives life and death to those who oppose execution of Israel's destiny. Many have tried to argue that applying Biblical overtones to what is happening should not work; but they cannot begin to understand that the Biblical context is the ONLY WAY to make sense of the blinding hatred being foisted upon otherwise peaceful communities - or the exquisite example of the four young lives that were praying and praising to Jesus before being mortally terminated.

Yet as is it promulgated here, ISIS/ISIL/IS Islamism is merely yet another forerunner of things to come. As Iran and others are demonstrating, a common cause against Israel is being formulating in the region in a way that can only be explained Biblically - no other rationale, not even the most sophisticated of human philosophically based thought processes can compare - and in its finality, the Biblical message has seen this brutality in the prophecy of the Middle East and foretells: only the Savior of Israel is going to stop it.

And THAT is what ISIS/ISIL/IS and their compatriots of destruction hate.
