It Was Never Intended That Islam (and Islamism) Would Last Forever

Reader comment on item: Another Voice Predicting Islamism's Doom

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 13, 2016 at 11:32

After looking at this discussion from one perspective, sometimes in a mental drone fashion, other aspects of the divisive conflicts in the Middle East that are laid at Islam's feet appear in such a way that tends to add to the confusion and deliberations as to why a belief system continues after 1400 or so years to baffle the societies of the earth with no apparent solution, let alone, any relief in sight. People continue to wonder: how does Islam persist when it does not lend to peaceful coexistence?

Islamism, from this perspective, is merely an extension of Islam that tries to contain the ideological elements of all factions in order to provide a way to deal with the more extreme aspects while not trying to condemn all who claim to be Muslim; yet they are inexorably intertwined, just as the extremists require to remain relevant in their efforts to achieve chaos in a world that seeks peace at any cost. The extremist Muslim will always reject being curtailed; for if they are, they would be doomed as it is speculated here.

But an interposing aspect of this deliberation is that Islam, its precepts and execution by followers of the Muslim prophet have been operating in its variant forms for reasons many reject as inconsistent with modern elements of world political control; for Islamism, like the other political 'isms seek a common goal: global conquest. This best seen in the efforts to create a 'Palestinian' state with its center in Jerusalem; for everyone who knows history knows that 'he who rules in Jerusalem rules the world.' It is expected that they will be given a chance at that attempt by an unknowing UN.

So now we can contemplate the doom of Islam from a perspective that recognizes the Islamists' goal and what needs to be done to frustrate that global ambition. For starters, it needs to be recognize that for 1300 plus years, Islam has not been truly eliminated, though defeated severally throughout the centuries. It is in a resurgent mode now, specifically targeting Israel (and America) as the last standing bastion to overrunning Jerusalem one last time. (Note here: America no longer seems to be able to counter the Islamists' threat, not from a lack of power, but political will).

But Islam does not recognize the power that covers the Jewish state; therefore they are not cognizant that there is no power they can muster that will defeat Israel, who has supernatural power to defend against all comers; and as such, therein lays Islam's ultimate demise. After all is said and done, Islamists never really had the power necessary to accomplish their goal, but instead, like the powers that thought that Babylon would rule the world forever, they became a part of that history in which the true King of Jerusalem will have all other world powers submitted to Him alone.
