Why would they reform if victory seems so probable?

Reader comment on item: [William Blum and] Al-Qaeda's Leftist Brigade

Submitted by Marcus Julianus (Canada), Jan 24, 2006 at 13:03

Putting this article in relation with the previous one ("The Pope and Koran"), I would say that whether or not Islam is reformable, Muslims will never change unless they are put in front of evidence that they will never win...

The popularity of this author, William Blum, is another proof for them that the "Munich" spirit (peace at any price) has an important place in US and Occidental mind...and that the Caliphate final victory is not only possible but also probable...

Pacifists and leftists may pretend to be "anti-establishment Rebels" (in a Democracy, it's a relatively "safe" way to look "cool") but their rhetoric is only a disguisement for cowardness.

Radical Muslims know it and I can help myself thinking that they are looking at us now the same way Genghis Khan's Mongolians looked at China before invading it or the way Turks were looking at the Bysantine Empire shortly before they destroyed it in 1453... they see us as big fat cattle that will soon be ready for hallal...
