Few in the West Are Serious About Islamist Terror

It appears that no matter how many men, women, and children Islamists slaughter or maim, few in the West take Islamic terror seriously. This may sound odd given how much talk there is about terror, but a compelling case can be made for this assertion.

One: The Western elites. The elites of the Western world are far more preoccupied with and afraid of global warming than Islamic terror. They regard those who believe that Islamic terror is the greatest threat to civilization as not merely wrong, but as bigots. They have labeled such people Islamophobes; but, of course, there is no such thing as a carbon-phobe or a fossil-fuel-phobe.

Two: Universities. The universities of the Western world not only do not identify Muslim terrorists or Muslim terror organizations as Muslim, they teach students the falsehood that there is no moral difference between Islam and Christianity or Judaism. This has helped leave the West incapable of dealing with the root cause of Islamic terror — some of the teachings and practices of Islam.

Of course, there are vast numbers of peaceful Muslims; and the great majority of American-born Muslims are just like their Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish neighbors. But to deny that there is something Muslim about the theology of the Muslims who commit atrocities against “infidels” is to deny one of the most important truths about Islamic terror. And it therefore prevents the only solution to Muslim violence — a reformation of Islam, starting with overthrowing its ideal of a sharia-based society, and then moving to Muslim views of women, of non-Muslims, and of Muslims who convert from Islam.

I like Prager, but this “reformation” thing is a pipe dream.

    “the great majority of American-born Muslims are just like their Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish neighbours.”

      Bullshit indeed it is.
      No mater how moderate of a muslim you encounter, the moment you bring up the slightest criticue about islam, you have an angry muslim on you hands that will threaten you with violence.

      Yeah, that statement shows a profound ignorance. No offspring of non observant, non practising Protestants, Catholics or Jews, return to the faith of their parents and start killing all non believers. How many times does this have to happen for people, especially like Prager, to figure out that Islam cannot be compared to any religion. If you want to compare it, then compare it to Communism or Nazism.

    These immigrants are marinated saturated with anti west anti white sentiment from their toes to the tops of their heads. They absorb the enmity from childhood from parents teachers and religious leaders in their community.
    They also have a massive burden of inferiority when they compare our civilisation to the one they escape from.
    Takes a particularly healthy resilient strong personality to overcome those potentially debilitating characteristics.
    I couldn’t guess how many are or are not successful.
    Perhaps twenty percent are free of their past……I dunno.

    That’s why in certain cases we just have to let go of the controls and let the plane crash into a big something while the liberals in first class sing revolutionary folk songs. Yeah they hate us, the liberals hate us more. We need to get to the point where they’re all burned beyond recognition. If that means that liberal enclaves are depopulated with fire, so be it.

    The idea that Islam can be reformed is right up there with the idea that rat poison can be made safe for human consumption. There is going to have to be a concerted, unified effort to show Islam up for the stupid, vicious bunkum it is in order to destroy, or at least defang it. Blood will be spilled in any case, but that is the road to saving Western civilization.
