in response to reader comment: Welcome To The 21st Century Islamic Warfare

Dear Abdul Rahman: Are you any relation to the Afghan Christian who was put on trial for apostasy for Islam?

I think the way Islamic radicals think is now very much an open secret. But, even if they were to win the entire Islamic world from Ningxia to Nigeria and Morocco to Mindanao; even if they were to recover Falstin, Andaluz, and the Balkans, they will lose. Indeed, even if they win Europe by 2050, they will lose. Why? Islam is transparently false.

The Qu'ran represents the Christian Trinity as God, Jesus, and Mary--when it is in fact the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It says the Jews declare Ezra to be the son of God as the Christians so declare Jesus--which is manifestly unlike any form of Judaism known to history. It says Jesus did not die on the cross, even though Christian, Jewish, and even Pagan Roman sources state clearly that he did. Clearly, Muhammad was one very misled individual; and if God is Truth, Muhammad cannot be His prophet. IAlready, many Muslims are recognizing the fact, and Islam is cracking.

In triumph, Islam turns in upon itself very quickly. Hence the Shi'ah and Sunni have been at each others' throats since Muhammad's corpse was cold. Hence the Mojahedin-e-Khalq, the first Iranian "students" into the "Nest of Spies" back in 1979, got outlawed by the Khomeinists, and now must peddle their brand of Islamomarxism on the Washington Mall (I urge every reader, if confronted by them, to get angry and tell them that they have no business in the USA, and whatever dunce in INS granted them asylum ought to be fired toute de suite--and watch a swarthy face turn chalky white but fast).

My own pious opinion (speaking as a fundamentalist Christian) is that we are witnessing God's controversy with two great apostate cultures--Islam and the post-Christian West (and how I pray that I am wrong!). Both will bleed and suffer badly, but the survivors will probably be more open to genuine conversion than any other in history. And here lies the difference between fundamentalist Christianity and radical Islamicism: while both agree that God's judgments are always just, the former sees his calling as praying for God's grace rather than hastening any on his way to Hell.
