But, the real enemy is us

Reader comment on item: Israel's Partial Victory
in response to reader comment: Why not recognize the "State of Gaza"?

Submitted by Prashant (India), Feb 7, 2023 at 22:56

Dear Dr Pipes,

Reader Robert made a case for how Israel can recognize the 'State of Gaza' and eventually defeat the (so called) Palestinians. Solutions like Robert's would work for rational enemies but Islam does not follow the standard rules of human conduct. After all is said and done per Robert's plan, Muslims will keep killing and dying for Islam. Peace, prosperity, and progress will remain secondary to them. Freedom will be only as much needed for them as is required to spread Islam. They will keep converting our women by falling in love with them. Etc. They will keep doing it until they capture more and more land and make the land 98% Islamic.

We should know the enemy: it is us. We abandon our God and religions at the drop of a hat. We fail to assert that Islam is ancient, different, and inferior. We fail to remind the Muslims that the Sharia should be humble and kind or it should not just be. I can go on and on.

Muslims have chosen to keep Islam regressive and inferior. The true victory will come when this point is driven home. Short of that, we will keep following the varied traps that Islam sets up for us all over the world.

Submitting....
