Prologue to History Being Rewritten - Destroy the Evidence

Reader comment on item: Islam vs. History

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Jul 2, 2012 at 19:28

While there may be argument of "eliminating infidel remnants establishes the superiority of Islam, while eliminating Muslim ones establishes the superiority of Islamism," that could be made to distinguish certain variations to the Islamic threat to the rest of the non-Muslim world, within Islamism there is no distinguishing rationale that prevents the ideology of purification in preparation for the 'end-time scenario. In example, smashing the doors to the Sidi Yahya masjid is a signal to some that they are of the end time mindset preparatory to the return of the 12th imam.

For the ideology of eliminating 'infidel' remnants to establish the superiority of mainstream Islam, it is also a purification process seen as a duty to prepare for the coming proposed domination of shari'a law. Israel's complaints of the 'purification of al-Quds' of Hebrew artifacts is of that very same agenda, though trying to eliminate the Jewish influences on the Temple mount has ancillary purposes-to establish an anti-Jewish domination in anticipation of expelling Judaism from Jerusalem altogether. It is a dream for them, a desecration for the Jewish population; and the beginning of a nightmare for a world that sits idly by and says nothing for fear of offending the Islam sensibilities.

In the end, it's going to cost a lot more than the destruction of a few artifacts; it will cost the whole world its peace for looking the other way when a better approach should have been taken.
