The concept of moderate Muslims not only has captured the fascination of media, but also of Western society and even ordinary citizens in the streets. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of Turkey, was bold enough to say it like it is. “The term ‘moderate Islam’ is being lathered up again. The patent of moderate Islam belongs to the West. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam; Islam is one. The aim of using such terms is to weaken Islam.”
The least we can do is give this man credit for making our lives easier describing the differences between the two.
Terms such as “Political Islam,” “Radical Islam,” and “militant Islam,” for instance, have been the contributions of our leftist intelligentsia. As President Erdogan correctly professed, these terms do not even exist in the native parlance of Islam itself, simply because they are redundant. Even a cursory study of Islam and its charter—the Quran—will clearly reveal that it is a radical political movement. It is the socialist leftists and paid-for-media and politicians who sanitize Islam and misguide the populace by saying that the “real Islam” constitutes the main body of the religion; and, that this main body is non-political and moderate.
Personally, I have refused to join or accept several organizations that seek to combat or expose the antics of “radical” or “extreme” Islam, because I know that it is not extremism causing the violence…it is mainstream, typical, normal, traditional, specified, canonical Islam. If our elected politicians start toying with this subject and avoid addressing, the future generations will be unforgiven.
Why do our elected officials refuse to deal with the Islamic threat? My answer: Various concessions are made, some of them as good faith offerings and some in the hope of placating the Islamists. Yet concessions to threats are appeasements. And appeasements have never solved any problems. They only whet the appetite of the aggressor, give it more power, and make it even more dangerous.
Notably, those of us who, through reason and tremendous act of will, have freed ourselves from the enslaving yoke of Islam placed around our necks (without our permission) from birth, know about all the heinous inside dirt of this plague of humanity. We hardly need to be lectured by some politician whose main goal is to get votes and elected. We have experienced Islam first-hand and up close from the inside.
Many of us have studied the Quran, the Hadith, and the Sunna in depth. Many of us have witnessed Islam in action where it wields sway. Some of us even tried desperately to cling to this security blanket that was wrapped around us from birth. Yet the more we learned, studied and the more we experienced Islam, the more our effort to remain in the fold became untenable. Ultimately, we broke away from Islamic slavery and found it to be our solemn duty to expose this fraud of a religion, help other Muslims to free themselves from it, and warn the good-hearted and gullible non-Muslims against falling prey to it.
Is “Moderate Islam” an illusion? Please allow me to decipher this enigma. Moderate Islam is a wedge that will jam open the door to Jihad, and “evil will triumph when good Muslims do nothing.”
Understandably, the great majority of Muslims are not adherents of the radical line. Yet, because the Islamists wage their war under the name of Islam, they receive immense direct and indirect support from the rank-and-file ordinary Muslims. It is this support of moderate Muslims that keeps the Jihadists alive. And it is the Jihadists who intend to show no mercy to any and all who do not share their theology, be they Muslims or not. For the record, all Muslims, moderates, radicals, Shiite, Sunnis and other sects and sub-sects of Islam are in unanimous agreement that the Quran is the word of “Allah.” All Muslims are also in agreement that “Allah” spoke through the Angel Gabriel to Muhammad.
Hence, to be a loyal follower and faithful Muslim, one must adhere to and perform many rituals, as specified in the Quran by Allah and the Hadiths/Sunna, every waking moment of his entire life. Disobeying these rituals does not make one a moderate Muslim, but rather it would make him a non-Muslim, facing an uncertain future. That is why people like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, who claim to be Muslim, are, in fact, apostates.
Regrettably, our liberal leftists take advantage of the provisions of the most benign system known to humanity, democracy, to implode it from within. Muslims by sheer numbers, not only in America, but in every Western country will be in a position to vote out democracy in favor of Sharia law. They will elect Muslims to all positions of local influence, who will create and enforce policy according to the Quran. Once they have control over a town, they will begin to establish informal Sharia, and there’s nothing the government can (or will want to) do about it. Sharia is the brutal means by which Islam controls its populations by force, intimidation, and punishments for offenses against Allah.
In short: let us not fall for foolish accusations by the incurably sick leftists at home and America’s ill-wishers abroad level at this country. America is not perfect. Yet it is the very best hope for a humanity struggling to find its humanness. America is worth defending. And remember, we must always vote for the candidate who is not going to cut and run in the face of Islamic jihadists.
