Morphing the Islamists' Movement

Reader comment on item: Two Weaknesses Could Undo the Islamist Movement

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 5, 2016 at 12:03

As the world wobbles in its attempt to survive yet another rush for the chasm approach to the abyss, the dialogue (and diatribe) of political malaise that tends to distract the thinking of many in the delusional realm of world politics, leads many to the wrong conclusion about Islam: Islam, Islamism (both moderate and militant) and the radical trending of a disenfranchised sector of Muslims, are trying to seek some form of stability (or instability in the case of the radical Islamists) in that same world which will never support a complete submission to Islam. Why; it might be asked?
Simple: the world was not (sorry for those who would arbitrate otherwise) created for an Islamically centered existence. Further, peace cannot be maintained from a philosophically challenged tome that bears its own evidence of a struggle that can never be escaped.
Yet further, it is true from a number sources that the peace of the world is not going to be settled in the occidental mindset; for the Occident did not originate the circumstances in which peace might have a chance in this world. (The Holy Writ of the Jews provides that clue).
Neither does the Daish have the formula lock on that as well. If that were true, then the Daish would conquer by peace, which they do not. Instead, the propensity for peace is not even in their vocabulary; for mere cessation of violence is not peace, only a pause before the next round of forced submission by fear and threat of death.
Were the radicalized propensities of Islam able to be contained under a more 'moderated' approach to obedience to the Quran, even this would fail since it has yet to be demonstrated where in the Quran an origin of world peace could be found, leaving judgment under its provinces still in the hands of a humanity that has yet to forsake its violent ways.
Thus there are always the sectarian variants of Islam that will never settle differences by virtue of the Quran, for one will always seek the others submission, even it they cannot get an entire world to submit.
