Death Does Not Solve the Problem in the Long Run


On our web site and our Facebook page, we've often seen this comment, or something like it: "There really is only one answer for jihad and that is death to the jihadis."

The only problem with that answer is that the ideology from which a jihadi is made would still exist, even if every last one of them were killed. So it's like trying to destroy a particular plastic toy rather than destroying the factory that makes them.

And really, you can't destroy this factory. There will always be Korans in this world. What you can do, however, is expose the game while non-Muslims are still a majority. The non-Muslims of the world could realistically expose, contain, and marginalize Islam. But to do that, they would have to understand what Islamic doctrine says. As long as they stay in the dark about that, they are vulnerable to being "scammed." They'll go along with things like public calls to prayer, Muslims having their own no-go zones, or whatever special consideration is being demanded.

But once the general public is aware of the true and disturbing nature of core Islamic teachings, they will be willing to do what needs to be done: To stop all concessions to Islam, period. Islam will wilt on the vine. It will have no air to breath, no sunshine to grow.

Don't get me wrong: Orthodox Muslims committing violence need to be stopped — jailed or killed. But that will not solve the problem of Islam. Only the education of non-Muslims can do that.

Non-Muslims who don't know what Islam really is are vulnerable to being bamboozled. Those who know can see right through taqiyya and will not be moved by it. Consider the latest scam that cons money out of U.S. taxpayers. Almost 300,000 people in the last two years have been called by someone claiming to be an IRS agent. The taxpayer is told they owe taxes and must pay right now or face dire consequences. Believe it or not, some people pay right on the spot. So far these scam calls have conned taxpayers out of 14 million dollars.

A person who doesn't know about this scam is vulnerable. But if you know the IRS always contacts people by mail if they owe money, it would be impossible to fool you with such a call.

People who see what ISIS and Boko Haram are doing get upset. It's completely understandable. And a feeling of anger makes people want to lash out. Also understandable. The education of our fellow non-Muslims may seem too mild a remedy for such horror in the world, but in the long run it can push back Islam better than anything else.

And it's not such a mild remedy. If you think talking to your fellow non-Muslims about Islam is easy, you haven't tried it yet.

"I once was the enemy."

My sister has reminded me many times that I was once the enemy - that I once considered her a nutcase, a right wing bigot (or something along those lines).

She vividly remembers my cutting her off, not listening whatsoever, when she told me she supported Joerg Haider, the Austrian politician who stood for "Austria for Austrians." (He died in 2008, so we are going back quite a while.)

I had forgotten all about that. Now I'm the one with more knowledge about Islam, the one who does more to make known the dangers of Islam.

But thinking back, paying attention to faint old memories, I do remember her insistent vehemence - and mine, in response to hers. Where was my nice sister? What was going on with her? I angrily cut her off. Over and over - as she has reminded me over and over.

Anyway, I've just gone to look up Haider: anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, Nazi sympathizer. I'm not surprised I responded with outrage. My sister and I were - and are - strongly against anti-Semitism, 100% anti-Nazi, and the children of immigrants.

One thing I see: people are reached, one at a time.

Another thing: we need to be able to reach people. My sister had knowledge. She could not reach me.

What reached me? For me it was the Danish cartoons - it did not make sense, the huge Islamic response contrasting sharply with Islamic silence at the murder of Muslims in the name of Islam (10,000 murdered in one year, in just one city, Bagdad). That was my turning point.

Could anyone or anything have reached me earlier?

I don't know. I know I was firmly "the enemy" - I remember that I responded with shock and horror at any suggestion, for instance, that having a mosque in an area lowered home value. How could that be? There were churches all over the city, and also a scattering of synagogues. That did nothing to home values.

Could someone have sat me down and reached me?

I don't know.

What I do know is that it's important - for me, anyway - to see the politically correct as people who can be reached, can be woken up, just needing the right "medicine". I remember a movie, Awakenings, about people who have been in a catatonic state for over 20 years, and are awakened through a new drug treatment. In the movie, the awakening is temporary. My experience of people waking up to the threat of Islam is that the change tends to be permanent, but that the awakening is slow and partial. There is so much to be learned, so much that goes against what is considered non-racist, non-biased, tolerant.

This is a fitting time to reiterate that one of the many ways that Islam may be defined is that Islam is a powerful religious/political system of tyrannical mind control the has terrible power and influence over the thoughts and lives of millions of people around the world. With that stated the wisdom of the words of Thomas Jefferson may ,very much, apply to this subject. For Mr. "I have sworn upon the alter of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

Near the end of this informative article in does mention the two brutal a deadly and brutal jihad entities, ISIS and Boko Haram. One important thing to always remember is that all the members of those jihadist terror Islamic organizations are ,indeed, very destructive. In that they are vicious, cruel, malicious, malice-filled and murderous. So much so that they are similar, in character, to the villains described in the Bible in Romans 3:15-17. Which reads "Their feet are swift to shed blood. Destruction and misery are their ways,and the way of peace have they not known." K.J.V.]

I agree death to jihadist is not the answer. However non-Muslims should never let their guard down because Muslims want to convert or kill. I am 74 years old
When I was 19 years old, I was in Karachi, Pakistan with a Jew. For some reason they started yelling "Jude" and advancing toward us. The police stopped them. We were military.

Recently I had an encounter with a "black Muslim". He was saying hateful things about Dr. Ben Carson. I challenged him. He went into a tirade. I believe that he was shocked how much I knew about Islam. He went away angry. I prayed about this.

My Lord told me: " I want you to go to him and tell him that your Lord sent you to tell him that he loves him and that I want you to love him too." (I had never experienced anything like this.) Two days later I saw him again. I told him. It took him by surprise. I know it had an effect. I just don't know how much.

Although I very much agree that we should stop all concessions to Islam, there is a confusion in the article. It challenges the often expressed view that "There really is only one answer for jihad and that is death to the jihadis" but the illustration is not just a picture of dead jihadis but one of the Islamic heartland obliterated by a nuclear blast. That is a different matter.

Not only would such an attack take out Iran's and Pakistan's nuclear weapons, it would destroy Mecca and Medina, plus the regime most responsible for spreading Islam around the world and crucially the financial source of Islam's power, the Arabian oilfields.

Islamdom would be reduced to a collection of extremities without a head but more importantly it would destroy the Koranic claim that joining Islam brings success. Muslims around the world would surely scratch their heads and think "Mmm…maybe not such a strong horse after all".

One of the most unusual articles on is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
