We all are at risk

Reader comment on item: Israelis Want Victory
in response to reader comment: What it is with the year 2024 and Palestinian Islamists? (Another aspect to the recent polls.)

Dear Dr Pipes,

Those who are predicting that Israel will be defeated by a certain date may just be right. I am sorry to agree with the devil but, in this case, devil is probably right. Unless Islam changes in a significant way, we all are at risk. Why do I say it? First, I will quote the Islamic sources. You will routinely hear Muslims say that Islam is the best religion and it will take over the world. There is plenty of evidence that any where Muslims achieve a majority status, they do not really stop until they achieve 98% majority. Pakistan, for example, is a 98% Islamic country. Adjacent to Pakistan, there are districts in India's Jammu and Kashmir states that are 99% Islamic. Israel's neighbors like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Tunisia and many others are massively Islamic majority how long can Israel be Jewish majority? I hate to say this but it is entirely possible that Israel will not remain Jewish majority for too long.

Further, there is evidence in Islamic history that Islamic wars hardly ever end. While most people compromise and settle for peace, Muslims do not stop until they win. The (so called) Palestinian war is now almost 3 generations old. The land in dispute that is the cause of this war is a mere 10,000 square miles (assuming that entire Israel is a disputed region). Saudi Arabia alone is 100 times bigger than Israel. Let me repeat, Saudi Arabia alone is 100 times bigger than Israel. If Islam truly valued peace, some one in the Islamic world by now would have proposed that a region that is not even .1% as big as the entire Islamic world is not worth wasting three generations of humans on. But no such call exists in the Islamic world. Let me repeat again, no such call exists in the Islamic world. And, Israel is not the only example. The war in Kashmir is also three generations old. They are not interested in growth and prosperity in Kashmir. They just want to build a Caliphate there. These are the hard realities of life. We have to deal with them. What I just said is the naked truth.

Imagine, if Britain today decides that they will keep attacking India until they win it back and make her Christian. Imagine if every single British person decides to fight a violent war until Britain wins India back. You would think that such a war cannot start and, surely, it cannot persist for 70 years. But the wars in Kashmir and (the so called) Palestine have persisted for that long.

And, Islamic history provides enough evidence. I invite your readers to read about Muhammad Gauri the 12th century Islamic attacker of India. It is said that he attacked Delhi 13 times and was defeated and forgiven 12 times. He won the thirteenth time and did not forgive any one. During his life long campaigns, Gauri was not interested in peace, prosperity, culture, growth, brotherhood, spirituality, or even, the welfare of his children and family. His only obsession was to win India for himself or Islam (I do not know which). Today Pakistan that is 98% Muslim calls the tomb of Muhammad Gauri a national heritage site of that country. And the wars that Gauri started in the 12th century are alive and well and continuing in Kashmir almost 900 years since. This is history.

So how can we trust that Israel will win this war? 70 years looks to be a long period in the modern history. But it is a tiny period in the history of the world. Very tiny. Muhamamd Gauri, the Afghanistani war lord who brought Islam to India lived just 57 years before he died. And just 400 years before Gauri, Afghanistan itself was a Buddhist nation where Buddhist monks used to teach non-violence. What will Kashmir look like in 2417? What will Israel look like?
