The Caliphate=Danger

Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]

Submitted by Jeff (Romania), Jul 26, 2005 at 15:52

Dear Dr. Pipes:

Your analysis is correct. The reason behind the terrorists' actions, which some consider not only dangerous, but also chaotic is to spread Islam in the West. Those who read the Qu'ran are familiar with the three stages of the Jihad. Only one talks about the personal challenge to be a better person; the other two levels clearly express the fact that a good Muslim must impose its belief on others.

The idea of the caliphate should freak out the people; in UK there is Hizb ut Tahrir who publicly claim that their ultimate goal is to suppress all Jews, Christians, all ‘kuffars' known as infidels. No wonder the Londoners were attacked! These people live among them; use the human rights rhetoric to establish Sharia law courts and to change our systems, not to adapt as it would be normal. But, in Qu'ran, Prophet Mohammed said that deceiving the enemy is not only ok, but also requested!

The world should keep wide open the eyes to the radical Muslim communities; after all, there is no such thing as moderate voices in Islam. When did these moderates take a stand against the suicide terrorists, against Bin Laden ? Never.

p.s some months ago, I've read a piece on the caliphate issue&political Islam– may be an interesting reading to others, as well:
