A variety of ceremonies of remembrance took place on September 11 calling to mind the 3,000 Americans who perished at the hands of Islamic terrorists in 2001. Vice President Mike Pence offered a sobering thought when he spoke at the Pentagon by mentioning that 25% of all our citizens were not even alive on that fateful day. Simple extrapolation would suggest that the number would rise to 50% in seventeen more years. If memory can be lost in the fog of human experience, vigilance will accompany the exodus.
The 9/11 Commission Report was issued in 2004, and in it the word “Jihad” was used 126 times, the word “Muslim” 145 times, and the word “Islam” 132 times. The Muslim Brotherhood, in the form of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, wrote a letter to the chairman of the 9/11 commission which said in part: “Terminology is important in defining our goals as well as removing roadblocks into hearts and minds. The 9/11 Commission identifies Islamist terrorism as the threat. The Muslim Public Affairs Council recommends that the U.S. government find other terminology.”
Well of course they do! In two more decades or less, half of the country won’t even know who was responsible for this vicious act. The Muslim Brotherhood and like Jihadi organizations are actively working to remove all language from U.S. Government documents and agencies which actually defines the enemy. “Words mean things,” which mandates this axiom to be observed in the “Great Commission” of the Koran which Muslims use as their guide: “Fight and slay the unbeliever wherever you find them, capture and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush” (Koran 9:5). On 9/11/18 Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of Al Qaeda, told Muslims around the world they must declare war on the United States! All Muslims are constantly reminded that their duty is to wage jihad to establish an Islamic State (Caliphate) under sharia (Islamic law).
During a recent interview on Fox News retired General Jack Keane acknowledged several military victories that the U.S. has claimed against ISIS and other terrorists, but was quick to add that we have largely been unsuccessful in attacking the ideology of Islamic terrorists. The result is that they continue to recruit at a rate faster than the rate of elimination.
The question that begs an answer is: what weapons have been used to counter an ideology that is cemented in a religion that preaches total world control? This is a competition that features not bombs and bullets but one of ideas and principles. A nation that has gravitated so far to the secular and the left is in a poor position to assault a religion that looks upon our compromises with utter disdain. Does anyone seriously believe that the continual elevation of the LGBPTXYZ movement is going to sway a society that regularly executes adherents of that persuasion? There are no Muslim countries that have an open border policy or anything close to it. In their estimation the idea is utter insanity and those who propose it must be mentally disabled.
What philosophical artillery does America have at its disposal that will batter down the bulwarks of a religion that is dominated by hate and fear? Let’s trot out the possibilities:
Perhaps our atheist friends, who dominate Hollywood, the media, and academia could persuade a hostile religion to lighten up. They have, after all, convinced a great preponderance of their adherents to view themselves as the only god of necessity. However, history would suggest that Allah would not tolerate such a display of infidelity…off with the heads of the unbelieving dogs!
At the local university, Professor Slipjaw dragging his evolutionary chart of human progression to the forefront might be interesting. He desperately attempts to prove that barbaric behavior is a thing of the past, but modern man has been elevated to the lofty level of logic and reason. Even a half-crazed terrorist might see some humor in that presentation before they.. shoot the professor. But wait, courses in “Psychiatric Orientation” will save the day. Let us find ways to introduce information concerning interpersonal relationships, compulsions, phobias, self-realization, social attitudes, adequate spontaneity and self-evaluation. The problem is some of the enemies’ leadership have attended American universities and walked away unimpressed and more determined.
Lies and distortions can only be successfully combatted with the Truth. Jesus correctly said, “Thy word is truth” (John 17:17). The solution is so politically incorrect that it will never be pursued, but it is fascinating to imagine the results if millions of copies of Truth were to be dropped out of cargo planes over Muslim villages and cities. After all, Bibles are less expensive than bombs. Proliferate their air waves with satellite Gospel radio!
The Bible is the only Book in the history of the human race that has been responsible for the conversion of millions to righteousness, mercy and love. But why let history mess with political aspirations. The final resolution will be the Word of God (see Revelation 19:11-16)!
