Death of Islam


Death of Islam

Islamic state

One might wonder what the Jihadis and Islamic extremists are trying to achieve, apart from sowing mayhem and destruction of life and property. For centuries Muslims around the world have practised their religion peacefully without attacking the “non-believers.” The Koran itself does not call for the killing or attacking of followers of other religions.

Islam has been one of the world’s major religions since its founding. The actions of the current crop of “Jihadis” would seem to suggest that they are either following an ideology of violent nihilism or wish to see a world-showdown between religions, a showdown that Islam would surely lose. This nihilistic madness certainly has economic, political and social aspects. The failure of the Islamic Spring and the failure of the establishment of widespread social justice in the Middle East has only added fuel to the lunacy.

It is up to all the Imams and Islamic authorities to absolutely condemn any and all acts of Islamic terrorism and the belief system that lie behind them as an anathema and un-Islamic. Failure to do so on their part is likely to lead, in the long run to the death of Islam as a major and respected religion in the world.

The recent terrorist attack in Paris by extremist Islamist Jihadis poses a double whammy for free thinking people. On the one hand, these Jihadis totally disagree with anybody who thinks differently or even vaguely insults them. On the other, security agencies of the West are constantly increasing the power of laws to combat this threat. Where does this leave us? It is becoming increasingly likely that most of our cherished freedoms will cease to exist (that is if you ever believed in “freedoms” in the first place). Throughout the history of mankind freedom has always been a handmaiden of power.

The really sad thing, apart from the loss of innocent lives, about these terrorist attacks is that they give the looney right a political leg up in their quest to promote a totally miserable and inequitable world. Lying idiots like Tony Abbott and Campbell Newman (I haven’t even called into question their honesty or political integrity) make headway under these conditions by distracting the populace from the major issues closer to home.

I must apologise for the miserable image of Mohammed at the top of this post. It was the most reasonable one I could find. Having never personally met the man I have no idea what he looked like. However, if he and his religion are worth anything whatsoever (which I doubt), he would be rolling over in his grave at what the extremist Islamist Jihadis are doing in his name. If the Jihadis are offended by my post, bring it on! They simply cannot kill all of us.

To me, the ignorance and stupidity behind this extremism has its roots in the Old Testament of the Christian bible, the Koran (obviously) and the Telmut and Torah of the Jews. Sure we all need to believe in something beyond ourselves, presumably. Nonetheless, we could choose to believe in positive things. The tenets of Buddhism and also Hinduism do not preach violence at all. Buddhism particularly reveres all life. Acts of violence committed by Buddhists and Hindus are not committed in the name of their religion. They are committed by their followers in the name of all too human concerns and exhibit a lack of spiritual understanding of those religions or else are simply a result of human weakness.

Most Muslims despise terrorism of any sort but it does seem odd that so many followers can interpret their beliefs into supporting savage violence. I am not forgetting about the killings done in the name of various sections of the Christian religion in previous centuries. All I am asking is, “What is it about Islam that seems to be malleable enough to lend some support to obviously deranged and hideous views?”

The Jihadis seem to have a great appreciation of death. That in itself isn’t necessarily a bad thing since we all die. Nonetheless, a true appreciation of death and life allows life to take its natural course without wanton violence and killing.

There are of course political and economic causes also behind the upsurge of extremist Islamic Jihadi behaviour. The Arab spring gone wrong, the misery of the poor in the Islamic world (and the rest of the world) and the greed of the wealthy powerbrokers in much of the west have further fuelled it.

It seems whatever we do, we are condemned to lose. It is likely that Islamic extremism will be defeated but at what cost? 1984 is coming to a country and neighbourhood near you!
