In the comments on one of yesterday’s posts, Egghead wrote an excellent series of analyses about the current dangerous stage that has been reached in the West’s response (or lack of response) to the worldwide advance of the Great Jihad.
There was, however, a single small error in one of Egghead’s comments:
…the Koran orders Muslims to violently conquer ALL non-human Muslims and reclaim the whole world for Islam.
This is not precisely true, and in our current circumstances the threat of violent jihad is like the waving of a brightly-colored cloth to distract the audience’s eyes while the magician performs his deft sleight-of-hand.
Islam orders that the whole world be compelled to submit to Allah, but it does not compel violence to achieve that end. Violence may (and must) be used if necessary, but the preferred methods are persuasion and deception, which erode and weaken an enemy at the lowest possible cost to Muslims, until the final — possibly violent — step is taken to implement full sharia and establish an Islamic state.
All of the above is laid out clearly and explicitly in Islamic law — consult Reliance of the Traveller for details.
The leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood are shrewd fellows. They know that if Muslims force a violent confrontation, they can never possibly defeat the infidel West. Hence their strategy of persuasion and deception. Their plan is long-term, and is available for our scrutiny in the Project documents captured in Switzerland, and also in its explanatory memorandum, which is on the public record from the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2008.
The Ikhwan means to infiltrate all of the West’s major institutions and subvert infidel society “by their hands” — that is, they plan to trick us into destroying ourselves. This process is obviously well underway, and has been very successful so far. Think about Fort Hood and the various other terror attacks, and the absolute refusal of our law enforcement authorities and political leaders to name the ideology responsible for what happened. The Obama Administration’s decision to embrace the Ikhwan in Egypt is another bitter fruit of the MB strategy.
The Muslim Brotherhood really does want to avoid terrorist attacks, because it sees such outbreaks of jihad violence as counterproductive — for now. The time for jihad will come, but Islam must first gain the upper hand.
If the Ikhwan is successful, the terror attacks on Westerners will abate. People will return to their TVs and forget about Islam. When they happen to think about it, they will regard it as just another religion, like Judaism or Mormonism.
Meanwhile, more and more Muslims enter the country. More and more mosques are built. More and more Islamic “community outreach” is initiated. More and more people who are dissatisfied with the dominant hedonistic culture, and who have been inoculated against Christianity by its ascendant “lite” versions, will convert to Islam. Women — young women who crave “respect”, feel the need for a strong unabashedly masculine hand in their lives, and are not comfortable with the sexual free-for-all — are especially attracted to Islam. Large numbers of them in Europe are converting and marrying Muslims to escape the mean streets of the formerly white working-class neighborhoods in which they were born.
To focus on terrorist attacks is to miss the point. Dawah and stealth form the double-bladed battle axe which is used as the primary weapon against the infidel.
Jihad is simply the stiletto that delivers the coup de grace.
