Islamic roots and synergies

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Submitted by Arnold Fishman (United States), Dec 6, 2006 at 11:20

Daniel,

The Islamic movement was used and empowered both by the German Fascists of the 1930's and now it has happened again by former and current day Socialist/Communists. Communism alive today is both stealthly encouraging Muslims to destroy the west thru targeted radical violence as well as thru other non-violent dialectical forms as a fifth column within the west. Islam has learned well from their intrigues! Muslims will win if they get partial control over, or influence segments of governmental institutions and internal policy making apparatus (it will be the "short-walk" down through the institutions this time, since communism has already done much of the decaying work ahead of time). I agree with the post concerning Christianity as another viable way of defeating Islam.

I believe that Christ offers the Muslims the only way out—secular humanism will not be able to defeat the stronger ideology of Islam just as the soviet union ultimately gave up trying to defeat them militarily in Afghanistan. Also as a minor correction, fascist and communist governments have not killed tens of millions of its own citizens as you wrote, but hundreds of millions according to the book Death by Government by RJ Rummel.
