Reader comment on item: Identifying Islamists through Interrogations
in response to reader comment: The Continuum between Islam and islamism

Submitted by Philip (United Kingdom), Feb 26, 2016 at 07:26

I have known Moslems and Israelis since school. I was brought up in a culture that fought Early Islam for 700 years. Then was occupied by it (Ottomans) for 600 years. I knew a Pakistani and an Omani Moslem at school. Neither would like Islamism or Jihadism, but neither would fight against it. If their children went into active Islamism/Jihadism they wouldn't oppose. I knew these guys before 1979 and the Khomeini Islamic Revolution that changed everything.

Now already in the 60s Saudi had decided to expand Islam through the petrodollar. 1974 was the first action in this regard. Now Sunni and Shia are fighting it out for religious and economic supremacy. Its Millennial. But the Moslem phrase Dar al Harb doesn't just mean 'House of Conflict', it also means 'House of the West'. Islam has targeted Christianity and Christian Europe from the very beginning. From the first attacks across the Caucasus in the 7thC to the invasion across the Pyrenees in the mid 8thC (Poitiers./Tours). They will continue to try to take Europe by all possible means from immigration, mosque building and 'Presence', to Islamism/Jihadism and 'Deception'. Read 'American House of Saud' and 'House of Bush House of Saud' for US context. Read 'Londonistan' for UK context. Read Revolution in Europe ... Its happening already... Saudis (princes esp.) are the greatest enjoyers of the Western lifestyle... and the greatest contributors to Globalised Islam, by billions of dollars... Think about it.
