The Terrorist, The Clueless, And the Politically Correct: Recipe For Doom

Over a fortnight ago, the mother of all surprises has stunned the world. Needless to say, the global community is still reeling from the shock at the sheer terror that befell the city of Paris in France. Islamic terrorists ISIS have once again sowed terror in the hearts of men showing their might and will -  to reduce the famous, the romantic, and indefatigable city to a complete disarray. Their recent exploits rendered 132 deaths and hundreds of wounded, still others in critical condition.

In light of the brazen assault to the French dignity, lots of questions remain unanswered and everybody seems clueless why such level of brutality still possible in a first world city like Paris? Who would in their right mind feel mandated to murder peace-loving individuals who casually dine in restaurants or are whiling their time away watching a concert? Who would have imagined such a beautiful and magnificent city could go down to its knees in few minutes?

Reports have confirmed that one of the perpetrators had slipped into Europe via a camouflage of migrants that had crossed from Greece disguised as a refugee. By all indications, the 9/11 tragedy, and the 2004 Madrid train bombings were no fluke and Paris being the latest casualty certainly makes a strong case that a determined enemy will have its way no matter what - into the lives of men small and great, if only to bring about destruction.

Notwithstanding the overwhelmingly massive indicators pointing at Islamic terrorists being the culprits, a deafening chorus of silence from pointing out the root cause of such hatred pervades mainstream media offices for fear of  backlash from liberals - who would die to defend the slogan of Islam as the religion of peace. Mainstream media won't say it is Islamic terrorism for fear many would get offended, and Obama won't like it either. 

Questions Rarely Asked

ISIS or Daesh makes good of its vow to bring Western civilization to its knees. They have made their intentions known. Those they deem enemies when captured are subjected to the most painful methods of death no human civilization is ready to comprehend. While wisdom is not hard to come by as to the mystery behind such hatred for "infidels", still very few have mustered strength to tread on dangerous path to demand rationale:

Why an Islamic god supposedly the creator of the universe would call his people to war with the "infidels" because they by chance or destiny happened to be born into another religion and not Islam, thus earning for themselves the name tag "infidel"?

Why the disdain of this god at his own creation namely Jews and Christians that he doesn't want his "own" people (the Muslims) to make friends with them? Did he commit a grave mistake when he accidentally formed "lesser" human beings called Christians and Jews and still remorseful of the blunder?

Why every time a bomb goes off or an "infidel's head rolls in the ground, shouts of "allahuakbar" reverberate in the air? Does this god entity take pleasure in the murder of "lesser" human beings that he is out to annihilate them all including women, children, newborn babies, and the helpless? How did this inexplicable appetite for blood and sufferings of other human beings come about?

Who are the real Muslims?

Some Muslim apologetics, however, would come to the defense of their book saying it should not be interpreted literally because when one does, ISIS ideologies are outrightly validated, thus making so-called moderate Muslims bad Muslims for not heeding the instructions written in their book. So who is the real Muslim? Is he the one who religiously observes literal instructions from their book or the one who nitpicks verses that suits his own likings but disregards those that are fundamental to their identity as Muslims?

If religions will only have their way to unilaterally lay claim to a particular word or slogan that exclusively identifies or describes them and that no other religions are allowed to embrace or at least share a synonymous slogan, then Islam would have the outright monopoly of the word PEACE or PEACEFUL appended to its name. Ask a kindergarten pupil what is the religion of peace, and you will hear a ready answer; even children don't get confused as it is taught especially in American public schools. Still, no matter the indoctrination to get its monopoly over certain words or slogans, words and slogans remain just that - letters - but its fruit is entirely another thing.

ISIS's inspiration

In every battle, there is always an inspiration behind it. Throughout history, wars were fought among nations, kingdom against kingdom, the savages against the civilized, and so on and so forth. Even individuals have battles of their own caused by a myriad of reasons because it is their inspiration that drives them to win. Having said that, ISIS is no different, they too operate behind an inspiration, and this determined and inspired group vows to cease not to advance its cause because a written mandate to savagely subdue and annihilate its enemies is the inspiration behind all its bloody conquest.

Bombings here and there have become a fodder in the daily news, severed heads skewered on fences have replaced traditional adornment at some city parks, sometimes they make a perfect substitute for a football while children gleefully cheered at such unique innovation. Captured suspected enemies get their bodies chopped up and their parts and entrails put on display as if a slaughterhouse just had a bargain sale. Others get burned alive in a cage and others die of drowning in the most despicable manner. Some suspected homosexuals in blindfolds get a free trip to the top of the tallest structure in the city and pushed to their death - and if they're unlucky to survive the fall, the blood-thirsty "morally upright" mob puts on a show as to whose rock gets to hit the final blow that would send the "bad Muslim" to his final doom.

Recently, a Malaysian hostage victim had his head chopped off by his Muslim captors in the Philippines. Bernard Then a 39-year old engineer was just dining out in a restaurant when he was seized along with the restaurant manager and did not do anything to merit such a gruesome death. His family could not meet ransom demands, thus his fate. He was not a Muslim and was targeted and his religion was a giveaway. The Abu Sayyaf Islamic terrorist group that operates in the Southwestern islands of the Philippines is notorious for beheading their captives who are mostly non-Muslims, and if by chance a Muslim gets in the mix during a kidnapping frenzy, he or she is often freed right away.

In Kenya this year, 147 got murdered when Islamic terrorists Al Shabab stormed a university and fired at victims who were mostly Christians after separating them from the Muslims. The same pattern follows the siege of a Kenyan mall in 2013 which killed 67 people mostly non-Muslims who obviously cannot recite the Islamic creed and if the target is suspect for falsely claiming to be a Muslim he will be quizzed some passages from the Quran to which his answer determines his fate. The same SOP was carried out by these Islamic terrorists who killed 28 non-Muslim passengers of a bus after failing to recite the Islamic creed. Of course, Muslim passengers have mastered that creed since they were young so they were rewarded mercy by their "brothers".  All and many other cases of a murderous rampage by Islamic terrorists around the world follow the same pattern of discriminately targeting non-Muslims.

Sowing Terror as a Mandate

Simply put, logical reasoning does not apply or irrelevant if one insists on getting to the bottom of it all in a rather skin-deep perspective without giving a chance to dig deep into the source of such "hallowed" resolve to kill.  Even Ivy Leaguers would have varying takes why acts of terrorism are mostly appended to the Muslim religion. Could it be because they wanted to emulate their prophet who was a warlord? Or maybe those joining ISIS had been perennial rejects in the job market that tossing homosexuals from the rooftops and chopping infidel's heads are the next suitable skills to craft a career? All possibilities are boundless if we choose to be continually lamebrain.

If only we pause a bit and have a look at these mound of menacing texts found in their book, then we will not wish to remain in our stupor state:

Quran 2:191 ~ "Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them."
Quran 3:28 ~ "Muslims must not take the infidels as friends."
Quran 3:85 ~ "Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable."
Quran 5:33 ~ "Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam."
Quran 8:12 ~ "Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Quran."
Quran 8:60 ~ "Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels."
Quran 8:65 ~ "The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them."
Quran 9:5 ~ "When the opportunity arises kill the infidels wherever you catch them."
Quran 9:30 ~ "The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them."
Quran 9:123 ~ "Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood."
Quran 22:19 ~ "Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies."
Quran 47:4 ~ "Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them."

Need we say more?

Western governments fear of Islam exposed

Brigitte Gabriel in her reply to the question of a Muslim law student Sabah Ahmed on "how can we fight an ideological war with weapons and how we can end this war" - said that, in specific historic cases of large-scale violence and terror against innocent populations, "the peaceful majority were irrelevant" in terms of preventing atrocities.

In her book "They Must Be Stopped", Gabriel wrote, "We, as infidels in the eyes of our enemy, need to understand the danger we face: A totalitarian ideology - whether its origin is mainstream or marginal - threatens to enslave, dominate, and murder us in order to realize its vision for global conquest."

Gabriel portrays Islam as a religion thoroughly bent on destruction and domination and is totally incompatible with values that exist in any democratic society. Having been born and lived in an environment where Islamic terrorism became integral parts of their daily existence, she could not have grasped it any better as far as its sinister agenda of global conquest is concerned.

Many prominent figures from all social spectrums such as political, religious, the military and the academia have already validated these claims based on their own testimonies yet mainstream media remains adamant to juxtapose these acts of terrorism with the commands explicitly written in the Quran by which every devout Muslim is avowed to fulfill. In their show of defiance and disgust at those who attempt to educate and inform the politically correct, mainstream media and government banded together to label them bigot Islamophobe hence "unwanted and dangerous to society".

Speaking of dangerous, two prominent personalities have been labeled as such by the UK government and are not even allowed entry into the country because their presence is deemed "not conducive to public good".  Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, two US bloggers who have in-depth knowledge of Islam and are keen on educating people on what Islam stands for - have both been banned from entering the UK for fear their message would provoke Muslims into rioting, again. Okay, we've seen videos of very scared police in their dozens being chased down by hundreds upon hundreds of Muslims in London itself, so we understand where the UK government is coming from, and so they resolve never ever dare offend a single Muslim's feeling again.

As long as we deliberately choose to ignore the truth wiggling under our noses, there would be similar or even worse tragedies than what we have witnessed coming tantalizingly close to our doorsteps. Devout Islamist groups like ISIS that follow the Quran in its literal context - have issued serious warnings that they are out to conquer and defeat Western societies. They vowed to wreak havoc on places no human imagination deems possible. They have warned New York and Washington, D.C. would come next. And quoting Brigitte Gabriel, the silent "peaceful majority" remains silent and in fact, is secretly cheering on the exploits of their radical brethren - hence complicit to their collective world agenda, that is, world domination.

The Coming Delusion

It's mind-boggling that despite the glaring dissimilarities between biblical and quranic texts pertaining to the treatment of one's enemy, still Christianity is being viewed unfavorably and Christians are generally at the receiving end of persecution because of their faith. Okay, we've heard it countless times, and even atheists are familiar with Jesus commands to "love your enemies, pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44), do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you and pray for those who spitefully use you (Luke 6: 27,28). Of course, loving your enemies and praying for them that persecute you is a general command that covers everyone else including Muslims because Jesus also died for them. Yet Christians are called to be vigilant and discerning of those that are blinded by hate for them.

In America, the public school system has already begun outlawing Christian prayers within its premises but encourages students to recite the quranic prayer saying "there is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet" while penalizing students or grading them zero if they don't recite the quranic creed. If parents complain, teachers would insist it is part of their subject to study world religion but Christianity surprisingly is not one of them. Under the pretext of teaching world religion to students, some schools even make it mandatory for students to attend a field trip to the mosque and let their female students experience wearing a burqa.

The double standard could not get even more glaring with one school having to suspend one of their teachers for gifting his student a Bible because he had asked for it. Meanwhile, a Christian athlete who placed third in a marathon was stripped of his medal by school officials because he wore a headband with a Bible verse written in it, but no rules had been violated. It is ironic however that the authors and implementors of this double standard would, in the long run, be unwilling to submit themselves under Shariah law if the time comes that Islam overtakes the land of the free and they have succeeded in marginalizing Christianity.

What American woman would wish to wrap her shapely body in black and turning herself into a ninja because Shariah demands a woman needs to cover so as not to tempt any man into committing adultery? What about long queues for women everywhere waiting in shackles for their turn to be stoned for adultery or fornication? Forget about limbs and fingers strewn around Walmart parking areas, at least shoplifters are still given a chance to live another day. And what about homosexuals and lesbians, will they be storming Shariah courts to demand their gay pride parade be reinstated? Or what about a queue of homosexuals on top of Chrysler or One World Trade Center for them to receive their free gift of bungee jumping experience sans the rope?

Would Islam's primary supporter Obama even allow his daughters to cover in black with eyes popping up like ghosts in the Oval Office? Forget about Bo, Shariah law hates dogs, so no presidential dog of any kind will be allowed on the lawns of the White House. And Michelle? It would be a sad day for the first lady when she stops flaunting her bulging biceps if her stylist gets the ax in favor of tons of ready-made black abayas imported from Syria.

Practically speaking, no one in their right mind except those whose only mission all their lives is to annihilate infidels - is willing to live in subjugation under Shariah and their freedom afforded by the Western civilization be curtailed at best if not totally snuffed out from them. Notwithstanding the danger it poses on account of its incompatibility with a democracy or any civilized society for that matter, Islam remains a darling of the political left and the increasingly politically-correct West sees to it, it thrives and is well-protected. Guess what, the same cannot be said of Christianity. And if it's not insanity to label Christians as potential terrorists due to its vocal opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage, then what is it? If this twisted rationale is anything to go by, this world predictably is going nowhere but the road to perdition.

Hope in a hopeless world

Scriptures had already predicted thousands of years ago that in the last days people will have a warped view of what is good and evil. What has been shunned as evil barely two decades ago is now considered good, and what has been called good for as long as humanity can remember is now called evil. If we want banner models let's not look further: Obama has been aggressively working on deporting Christian asylum seekers while being doubly aggressive on importing unscreened Muslims who can be potential terrorists. Of course a White House invitation for every clock boy who screams Islamophobia would always be considered a presidential mandate under his administration.

It's only a matter of time and we'll get to see this madness exacerbates to the point of global chaos. But while social paranoia overtakes those that have their hopes pinned in this world, true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ will only have their hopes firmly pinned on their coming redemption. This world is going nowhere but to damnation because it will be what it has chosen to be. People will scramble to hide from terror but terror will they find in places they least expect it. They will buy their way to find peace, but peace will shun them because they refuse to acknowledge the only source of peace, instead, in their disdain for the Prince of Peace, they choose to scoff at him, reduce him to an object of mockery, but it will be too late. After all, they have been adequately warned.
