Islamic Believers versus the Lukewarm

Reader comment on item: Islam vs. Islamism (article)

Submitted by J Glueck (United States), May 14, 2013 at 19:20

The Ayatollah Khomeini prophesied that Allah had permitted the rise of the state of Israel on Islamic lands to arouse the sleepy lukewarm masses... that they would arise and destroy the Satanic miracle of Israel as a stepping stone to the conquest of Europe, the USA and the rest of the world. The whole earth will finally be submitted to Allah with Sharia as the perfect will of God (implemented by the Islamic Messiah, the Mahdi, of course!) Whether Shia or Sunni, the Koran and the Hadiths are taken quite literally leading to these things by differing paths, including a final offer of conversion or death. These "truths" are now revived and inculcated into countless young fanatics.

Dr. Pipes believes that it is possible to negotiate with those who characterize the 85-90% of subservient Muslims. He is missing the fact that these 15% are the believers in Islam. In Judaism, Christianity and Islam, it is the believers who are "ideologues"... they actually believe in what they practice and seek to allow their God to govern everything in their lives. They speak for their culture, not those who wish peace at any cost. They have now taken over most of the Islamic world.

They will subvert the status quo and increase pressure on the West. The rise of Islamic barbarism is an ancient reality reborn that will need to be subjugated on the battlefield and then in the minds of countless millions of deceived people.
