No Resistance Without Truth

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Feb 21, 2008 at 14:33

The idea that uniting against shari'a law, or any of the Islamic sensibilities that come from the variable interpretations of just what exactly the Quran is saying can be a daunting task, if one does not fully understand what the premise of the Islamic ideology in modern societies is, that of countering Judeo-Christian sensibilities. To try and counter the onset of the Islamic mindset with a PC secularist mentality is tantamount to accepting, tacitly and/or implicitly, the perceived inevitability of a society dominated by Islam. It cannot be done.

Nor can it be done when one of the mainstream Christianesque denominations has a very visible clergyman say as well that it is inevitable. Without a strong spiritual dissenting voice, it IS inevitable.

It is an urban legend that a notable crime boss in the United States said he could do more in profiting from his illicit activities with ten lawyers and their briefcases than with ten thousand gunmen. In a similar way, the ideologies being promulgated on behalf of the adherents of Islam could in fact be disseminated to an otherwise unbelieving world for the lack of a strong position in true Christian beliefs and the spiritual strength to stand on the Holy Biblical principles that surround Israel and her people, and her right to the land promised long before there was a Mohammad or a Quran.

These things notwithstanding, it has been asserted before and is re-asserted that the Islamic mindset is to diminish and eventually eradicate Israel from the international community, the true motivation for any Islamic activity which intends to remove the last obstacles for taking over and ruling in Jerusalem. Everything done in the world away from that central determination is a decoy, just as Gaza/Lebanon ‘Palestinian' sympathies are anathema to Israel; as Kosovo is to Serbia and Chechnya is to Russia, or any activity that distracts the world when it really should focusing on how to protect Israel.

The world will never get it right until it recognizes the truth, and recognizing Islam for anything else than it is will never get it right.
