The West cannot coexist with barbarism. Either we believe in Western Civilization, human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, gay rights, science, moral progress, self government, individual liberty and the Rule of Law… OR… we allow in our midst believers in sharia and islamism who violently oppose those rights and who, with our implicit permission, treat the least among us barbarically. It’s a binary choice.
Islam is killing everyone it can reach in order to force a return to a – literal – Stone Age rule of the strong oppressing and enslaving the weak at their whim, including raping infants, beating wives, whipping and/or stoning female victims of rape, and murdering children.
All progress – material, philosophical and moral – since the Stone Age is rejected by sharia; by Islamic theology.
“Coexistence” is an immoral, facile philosophy in which we absolve others of crimes against the weak in order to feel good about ourselves; little is as immoral as this.
When every religion – moral philosophy – on the planet, but one, can peacefully coexist with one another, but that one kills all the others, the only way to peace and moral progress is to terminate that murderous philosophy.
If Muslims exist who can parse what we would call “religion” (a Western word with the foundational premise of “not State” that does not exist in Islam) from the political and totalitarian theology of the Koran, then a case can be made to allow Islam to continue to exist. Because this is doubtful, Islam must be treated as is any other destructive parasite – polio, smallpox, etc – and removed in its entirety from the body politic .
Those who complain that a belief system cannot be destroyed lack historical perspective. Imperial Japan and NAZI Germany both were belief systems. These people also offer no Plan B other than the continued acceptance of terror against us and our children – and savage barbarism against the weak under Muslim rule globally. This cannot be acceptable to any civilized person. (It is not surprising that those accepting terror as the “new normal” are, as a group, barren of children and so any care of the future.)
The continued acceptance of Islam within the planet’s philosophies is destructive to humans and to all progress moral and material.
Allowing sharia within the West is a moral failure ranking among the worst moral failures in history.
It must be annihilated. Even “containing” it as we did the USSR is an acceptance that other human beings do not deserve protection from this inhumane philosophy.
The longer we wait, the less value we put on human life, on moral progress, on peace.
