Bottom line. It aint gonna happen on U.S. soil. The only people who kill large amounts of people on U.S. soil are TPTB here in America. 9-11 should
have driven that point home.
What? So in your very educated opinion [sic], you think Americas (or Americans) only enemy is their own government? That's a very naive view, even if
it possesses some modicum of validity.
While I agree Americas elite have their own agenda above and beyond the interests of the average American, you have to be a total halfwit who has
never read a book on Islam: Muslim brotherhood (for instance, the writings of it's founder hassan al bannah would be edifying), Hezbollah, Hamas, Al
Qaeda or the manifold other Islamic terrorist organizations, or, for that matter, the plethora of statements from contemporary Islamic authorities,
Yusuf Qaradawi foremost among them, of the very real threat Islam poses to western civilization.
And I am not an "Islamaphobe" - my personal library has quite a few books on Sufism (Islamic mysticism/metaphysics) - because I acknowledge the
reality of a disparity in weltanschauung between Western democracy (based on Judeo-Christian ethics) and Islam, which is coming from an entirely
different metaphysical outlook; Islam is UNABASHEDLY - and not some 'fringe elements' - possessed by a zeal for converting the world's masses to the
one true religion, Islam, and I'm personally doubtful whether it can be rehabilitated by western concepts.
Islamic metaphysics is so incredibly different from Judeo-Christian metaphysics. In the former, there is no distinction made between this world (the
realm of appearance) and the Absolute (God as He is in himself); meaning, in Islamic thought, the ONLY truth is TRUTH from Gods perspective, which is
the truth from the metaphysical; consideration of real-political realities, are SUBORDINATED to Islams metaphysical prerogative, which is the will of
Allah, as conveyed by the Quran. In simple terms this means: Muslims will do anything to achieve that end - because that End - the Absolute will of
Allah (as contrasted with Judaism, where God has two different names, indicating two different realms of existence) subsumes all temporal activity.
Thus, lies are only a means to an end; no religion makes use of the axiom "The end justifies the means" as Islam does, because Islamic metaphysics is
ALL ABOUT THE ABSOLUTE STATE OF EXISTENCE - which is life IN ALLAH.
Now, because I totally understand Islam's esoteric thinking, I know how very real the threat it poses is.
It's quite the quandary - not only in that Islam is essentially irreconcilable with modern thinking (and morality), but that the western media has
blinded it's public to this threat. Now, not only do thinkers, both muslim 'moderates', and those who understand the dichotomy between Islam and the
west, have to deal with this basic issue, but they're also having to contend with educating a public who is eager to disclaim any contention that
Islam is problematical to western civilization, which it most certainly is.
