The Islamist ideology resonates with many Muslims around the world. It resonates because it contains elements of mainstream Muslim belief. There is accepted Islamic law for:
The call to Jihad is strong. It guarantees a place in heaven and is an obligation for most Muslims. It is little wonder there are so many recruits around the world.
What Islamic law implies for multiculturalism in the West is clear. Given prevailing demographic trends and accepted Islamic law, non-Muslims will become persecuted minorities in their own land. From past precedent their future is bleak.
There is not a lot of Hellenic culture left in most of the former lands of Byzantium. A thousand years of history gone. Similarly for Persia, and who knows how many other cultural groups. Of course something might change. History makes fools of most fortune tellers. It might just change in reaction to the actions of Islamists in the West. Particualrly if they follow the advice of Al Qaeda.
Al-Qaeda is quite clear on what it expects of Muslims living in the West:
“To my Muslim brothers everywhere especially in the West… Assassinations, bombings, and acts of arson are all legitimate forms of revenge against a system that relishes the sacrilege of Islām in the name of freedom.”
The Islamist threat is enabled and advanced by the “left” in much of the West. This is despite the fact that the atheists amongst them will fare particularly badly under Islam. But no doubt they will happily convert. Many will end up using the Koran rather than Karl Marx or environmentalism as their source of received wisdom. They will accept anything that justifies their haranguing of us. That justifies their punishing us for our sins, which in turn confirms their superiority to the rest of us.
The malign influence of the left with its multiculturalism and political correctness weakens our cultural glue. It does so at the very time we need it to stick to Muslim migrants. Multiculturalism will make it very hard for the experiment of mass Muslim immigration into the West to work out well.
Western culture and society is alluring. It attracts people from around the world. It has resulted in an unprecedented number of people living incredibly long, healthy and wealthy lives. They have access to more knowledge than anyone ever before. This is worth protecting. It is assimilating. Trust the left to make of it something to reject.
Perhaps the West could assimilate millions of Muslims immigrants. Perhaps it could inculcate a love of liberty and the Western way over a love of the Koran. This we do not know. Thanks to the Left. The Left with its humorless political correctness, rejection of our Judeo-Christian cultural base, apologies for our past and for our present. Denigrating the West and building up the rest encourages Muslim immigrants to reject the West. Naturally many reject the West and adopt beliefs that are incompatible at best.
There are numerous sites online that track the Islamist threat. Some even go into philosophical depth. This site will focus on their Western enablers, the left. It is the left that undermines the West, makes Islamists an existentialist threat. If our way of life is to go, the left will not be able to say “we did not know”. They will be responsible for all that is to follow.
