President Karzai experienced the Florida church’s plan to burn Korans (which was later cancelled) as an insult to 1.4 billion Muslims. President Yudhoyono urged the US government to take action to prevent the burning. Both statesmen obviously felt that this was a matter that should be of official — and punitive — concern to President Obama and the United States government.
So the United States is required to protect the lives of its troops serving in Afghanistan by:
|1.||Making sure that no Americans burn Korans, and|
Hmm… What’s wrong with this picture?
And what conclusions can we draw from it?
Now, we can certainly say that Islam is violent and barbaric, that Muslims are intolerant and exhibit a double standard, and that our leaders are craven appeasers who invariably cave in to Islamic extortion. All of these assertions are true, but virtually everyone reading this post has already been there, done that. So let’s not bother rehashing it all.
The most important conclusions to be drawn from these news stories are the following:
– – – – – – – – –
|1.||The Muslim world is demanding that the United States enforce sharia law, both in Afghanistan and within its own borders.|
|2.||The United States is actively and willingly complying with this demand.|
|3.||American officials are unaware of #1 and #2, with the exception of highly-placed agents of the Muslim Brotherhood (and possibly President Barack Hussein Obama).|
The desired goal of both jihad and da’wa (Islamic proselytization) is to induce the nations of the unbelievers to obey sharia law. Jihad is the sharp end of the spear, and will be used when necessary, but da’wa is the preferred technique, because it is less costly — and, when dealing with powerful but gullible Westerners, it is much easier to accomplish.
In other words, by its own standards, the Muslim Brotherhood is now approaching victory against the infidels of the West, and the kafir doesn’t realize that he is being beaten, nor does he understand the nature of the war that is being fought. With the United States in voluntary submission — even as it fights “terrorism” and “violent extremists” abroad — Islam is more than halfway towards its goal.
