I don’t believe that what we are witnessing in the 21st century is an organized, planned conspiracy for world domination. I think that this is what universalizing religions do – they spread, they convert and they seek to grow. However, the world has never seen a universalizing religion like Islam. Islam is aggressive, it is vocal, and it has never in its history discouraged the use of violence. Islam is formidable and Islam is coming for us all.
Liberals will, in any discussion of religion, often quickly move to counter the negative of a religion with the line “But Christianity…” after which they’ll launch into a tirade of the Crusades or a discussion of the Inquisition or some of the various other crimes committed at the hands of Christians somewhere in the world. It’s a straw man argument because the leftists aren’t willing to recognize the key difference between Christianity and Islam.
The difference between the two is Scripture. In the New Testament, violence by Christians is almost never even considered. In the Old Testament, the violence is given the boundaries of historical context, each specific action had its reasons from a historical perspective. In the Islamic Quran, most of the passages which speak to violence against the enemies of Islam are left ambiguous for the reader’s own discernment.
“The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.
Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.”
In the United States only about 2% of the population is Muslim, but those numbers are ever increasing. In Europe, the massive growth of the Islamic population is of much greater concern for nations with shrinking natural populations.
Today, Islamic violence is mostly contained to the Islamic majority world. While Islam conquered these regions of the world through violence and evangelism, the religion has moved on Europe and North America in a very different manner. In Europe, the decline of the population which demographers have been noting since the end of World War II, gave Islam a foothold on the continent. The aboriginal cultures of Europe are all shrinking, their natural populations quickly withering away as more and more Europeans choose to have less children.
Human Geographers note that the only reason the European population has stayed stable is the large influx of immigrants from Asia and North Africa. A population that is largely Muslim. These new immigrants to Europe continue to have large families, and so we see a massive growth in ratio of Muslims to non-Muslims throughout Europe.
