Reader comment on item: Another Voice Predicting Islamism's Doom
in response to reader comment: Muhammed has to step down

Submitted by Jerry (United States), Aug 1, 2016 at 18:37

Your thesis is correct in every area. However, Mohammad stepping down? Problems there. If he's truly their prophet, he won't. Of course, he first has to appear again. My bet is he won't. If he does somehow, then far as I'm concerned he's the antichrist. Regardless, it's impossible that the Muslims will ever back down with Mo as the chief reason.

That leaves the other options. They get bored with it and move on to other things. Doubt either will happen.
The usual answer here is military action. I do believe at some point they will get high on their own testosterone and pungent smell, piss somebody like Israel off, and get bombed off the planet. The rest of Islam will suddenly lose the urge for fighting. Then a redux of the early 1900's, where Islam was viewed by its followers as any other religion. The military aspect will be forgotten and instead science, math, and academia will be pursued.
Peace might even break out.
