in response to reader comment: The Moment of Momentum for the Islamic State - When Will It Stop

Submitted by saiful (United Kingdom), Aug 21, 2014 at 07:31

First of all there is 'islamic state', which actually should be given little English letters and perhaps even spelt in windings font. Given the notoriety in world media, rather insecure citizens of this planet should now be able to utter the name of this group clearly in their nightmares perhaps with a rather good English accent. Fact is the contemporary islamic state to most muslims is really nothing more than a replacement demon 'Al Qaida rebrand' that the savour of our planet, 'Captain America' believes must be exorcised. All the drama for what is little more than a marauding guerilla army of pea brained thugs.

Many adherents of IS, people should be made aware will already have early signs of schizophrenia having grown up in the west, alienated by frequent dichotomy with western beliefs and corrective Islamic teachings. However, little mention has been made as to the questionable leadership and control of IS, where and from who they receive their weapons and training, why they remained so silent over the Palestine and Israel conflict, why they do not criticise the Saudi monarchy which is an invalid form of leadership in Islam, why they do not understand the notion of dhimmi etc.etc.

Then there is the aspiration of all other Islamic organisations who understand the shariah ruling for the reestablishment of Islamic governance and the unbroken succession of leadership it instills. A form of governance that accommodates difference of juristic opinion, embraces technology that can benefit mankind etc etc. Enough already for sincere readers to dig into and learn for themselves of this blast from the past.
