This is my post from yesterday, 9/11, on Facebook. I was surprised when one of my readers, a fine person whom I know personally, asked “…But how do we balance that with compassion for the good folks here.. It gets dicey.. ”
My answer is below my post. And here it is:
Not a plug for my work, but on this anniversary it’d be remiss of me if I didn’t mention that Islam’s avowed goal is to destroy, subjugate, and covert each and every one of us to their barbaric point of view. If you haven’t learned it yet, “Pure Islam” hews to the writings in the Quran, and they demand total world domination for their faith. It is not some “bastardization” of a great faith, it is the logical conclusion for its adherents.
Simply stated, “Islam” is the command form of the Arabic word for submit. Get a linguist to explain it to you if you have any question about what that means. But it’s an order. Viewed as coming from Allah. And if you are given that command, you have three choices:
Submit and convert
Live as a second class person with a gigantic tax levied upon you.
Your choice. That’s what Islam means in practical terms.
Thankfully, most Muslims are like most Christians: lukewarm. But the true believers are out there and wish us to be no more.
Today I remember all those that died on September 11, 2001 and those who have given their lives in service to this country since.
Here’s my answer to my reader:
There can be no compassion for those that try to kill us. We can pray for their conversion, but we must be aware of what Islam is, and how the adherents practice it.
Even the “non-hardcore” members of the religion will protect and fund their jihadist brothers rather than turn them in to the authorities. If Christians did the equivalent, they’d be providing bomb-making materials for blowing up abortion clinics – and that’s not happening. In Islam, it is.
Some, an extremely small number, of lunatics have bombed abortion clinics and shot abortionists. They are reviled by Christians, and turned in as fast as they are found. In Islam, this is not the case.
