Allegiances to Which Adherence of Islam - Fundamentalist or Apostate?

Reader comment on item: Tolerance and Risk

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 8, 2021 at 13:00

Further consideration of how the world may, or may not, survive this ages old battle of tolerating or resisting Islam in its variant forms, variously Fundamentalist, Sunni, Shiite, Sufi, and any other lesser practice of its frame of religious references, must adapt how the world believes those who are not so inclined to adopt Islam as a way of life are going to be allowed to continue, if, the big if, adherents of Islam are permitted by the ruling class of Islamic leadership (mullahs, Imams, etc.) are so inclined. Are they(?): the continuing conflicts of hatred suggest they are not.
And so, the conflicts continue. Actually, the ancient prophetic prognostications and ascriptions portend a differing path to certain attempts of religious reconciliations as being futile in both efforts and outcomes. Ultimately, innate to the fundamental conditioning of humanity is the perennial failure to come to terms without resort to violence. Rebellion, as it is seen pandemically driven in dramatic scenes of inflamed wreckage and ruin world-wide, even in places where the former government was predicated on peace through freedom such as was found in America, are now in scatter mode of seeking some new 'paradise' to which an immigration of millions of mankind's deplorables are on the move to.....well, to where? There are no more safe havens left. Humanity's Adversary has seen to that; vis a vis Afghanistan, is a good example.
If not Islam, then Christianity? There, division amongst the supposed faithful to the Savior has brought the message of the Gospel to its predicted place of refuge, in the Savior Himself - wait for it, is the message now.
Does Islam tolerate that? In its final form, as the Mullahs dictate, not on their watch: some there wait for the al-Madhi; but no promises there; thus the Islamic apostasy brings little hope either.
This indicates for the purposes of upon what to base anyone's future, in the Judaic-Christian Gospel of the Savior; or the hopelessness of Islam's inability to predict why Israel still waits for her Holy One to reappear.
