Sources of Cause for Resurgent Islam Continuing Its March Against the West

Reader comment on item: Why I Am Not a Muslim

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 22, 2021 at 16:09

A notice again of Dr. Pipes' review of 'Why I am Not a Muslim, and the more recent topic of Muslims rejecting Islam for relief from religion into atheism, the two and a half decades appears to contrast as much as compare why former (or apostate) adherents of Islam find themselves taking up the issue of the validity of such a belief posture in a time of a greater conflict within Islam, let alone the greater notice of converts to the Judeo-Christian Savior in a time of resurgent Islam in Afghanistan and the Iranian Islamic Regime and its proxies, a major source of fatwas against such rebellion.
The situation, now institutionally embedded globally, presents a dilemma that world can no longer afford to 'look the other way.' The review of the book more than twenty-five years ago and more currently the dissatisfaction apparent today might lead to a conclusion that times are changing: maybe they are, but not nearly as fast as the angst that is building internationally for which not even the loss of American stability to control what is happening can explain it.
Even now, it is inexplicable except if one knows what to look for. Explanations for the new rise of Islam against the West can be traced to its roots, as has been explained in Dr. Pipes' forum for decades.
