The Alternative Will Not Be Stopped by Denial

Reader comment on item: Why Politicians Pretend Islam Has No Role in ISIS

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Mar 10, 2015 at 14:01

The world and its confused cascading immersion into chaos appears to be missing the reality check afforded by the unrepentant violence being perpetrated upon vast numbers of peoples who were able to one time depend upon peacemakers; but now the tragedy is that peacemaking is not as profitable as the materialism alternately being sought by the power brokers. Worse, it is more evident that the Adversary of the world is not only in the details, but his choreography is explicit.

In the same denial that Christianity is caught up in, the works of the Adversary of humanity are found hidden in the various dialogues and diatribes, where if there is a basis of denial for the outright slaughters of thousands of peace seeking communities, then the perpetrators of those murderous tragedies can be given a benefit of doubt that their actions are not so heinous, dependent upon the perspective. Accordingly, if it is so bad what they do, why are young people trying to get in on it.

So further, why is there the political motivation to be so dismissive of blatant acts of violence when the decent response is to defend with compassionate political will and active demonstrative force against the rage of so much hatred? Look closely at the operative word - motive. What drives the hatred seen in the actions of the ISIS/ISIL/IS marauders - they have said so themselves; and yet it seems many in the leftist political area such as that in the United States, who think to deny the Islamists' claim, waffle on truth.

Ultimately, truth will prevail; not in secret, but in triumph. Many of this current world will not get to see it, for the denial does not always allow the consequences to be seen.
