ISIS in not self destructive

Reader comment on item: ISIS' Imminent Demise

Submitted by Curtis Freedland (United States), Dec 11, 2015 at 00:58

The Muslim value system is reflected in Sharia law, which holds a different set of standards for Muslim males, Muslim females and non-Muslims. This is in direct conflict with the US constitution. A united Muslim country free of the WW2 borders is very popular amongst Muslims. ISIS incorporates this unified front especially among Sunnis and conforms to strict Sharia law and the dictates of the Quran. Only those that are not Muslims believe that ISIS is self-destructive and will implode on its own. Those that believe areas controlled by Muslims will give non-Muslims the same rights of true believers are sadly mistaken or misguided. Those that believe that countries with large Sunni populations will help unseat ISIS are living in fantasy. Commitment of US troops will be required. Ignoring this problem will quickly become a worldwide problem. We should not condemn those that stand against Sharia Law as being racist. Nor should we be quick to label them an "Islamophobe". People have real and legitimate concerns. Unfortunately ISIS will flourish if we continue the Obama doctrine of containment.
