Why are Islamists Terrorizing the World?

by DR. SAMI ALRABAA August 11, 2014

Radical Muslims, the Islamists are now almost everywhere; not only in Somalia, Nigeria, Mali, Libya, Gaza, etc, but also in Western countries, especially Germany, France, UK, USA, Canada, etc.

Most recently, Islamists/Jihadists, the ISIS have established their own Khalifat/state in the northern parts of Iraq and Syria. In Libya the Islamists are still working on that.

Some Muslims, in some European countries - who might one day fall under the influence of Islamists, some of them, though, already sympathize with Islamists - are occupying key positions in some European countries' administrations.  

Sayeeda Warsi, a British Foreign Office minister, of Pakistani descent, and the first Muslim in a British cabinet, resigned two weeks ago over "the intolerable mild attitude of the British cabinet toward Israel". In several interviews she sympathised with Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic terrorist organization.

Two Turkish women in Merkel's administration in Germany have also been appointed in key positions. They are in charge of helping to integrate Turks in Germany. There are around 4 million Turks living in Germany. The majority of them are Muslims. They hate Yazidi Turks, Armenians and Kurds.

With the help of these Muslim Turkish officials, and unlike other migrant women from other countries, Turkish women do not need to learn German before they are allowed to migrate to Germany. Turks are also allowed to possess two passports: a German one and a Turkish one.

In sum, the two Muslim Turkish officials are not helping to integrate migrates in Germany. On the contrary they are doing all they can to disintegrate Turks, help them keep their Turkish culture. Therefore, many Turks in Germany speak Turkish as the first language, followed by German. Many Turks speak broken German or no German at all.

Islamists have always dreamed of conquering the world. Under the "Prophet" Mohammed in the 7th century, the Muslim troops managed to reach and occupy Spain.

Under the Othoman Empire, the Turkish Muslim troops, reached the gate of Vienna.

Now the majority of Muslims and in particular Islamists are dreaming of conquering the whole world from both inside and outside.

By democratic means they might get to that aim. Although Islam in all its scriptures: the Quran and Hadeeth reject democracy. Islam pleads for governance by dignitaries in each Muslim community.

Demographically, it's believed that the Muslim Turks in Germany, for example, will make out 50% of the German population in 2050.

In other words, sooner or later, Islamists would take over and control the whole world, unless the West takes appropriate measures to fight and eliminate Islamism.

The West must start battling the causes of Islamists which many Muslims and non-Muslims are not aware of.

Politicians across the world still talk, knowingly or unknowingly about "peaceful Islam", including Barack Husain Obama.

However, unlike all religions in the history of mankind, if you read the Quran, the "holy" book of Muslims, you find passages like:

"Kill the infidels (non-Muslims)."

"If you turn your back to Islam, (if you opt to leave Islam: apostasy), you must be killed".

"As a Muslim, don't take Jews and Christians as friends."

In other words, these and other passages from the Quran, are the best "instruction manual" for radical Muslims to carry on their crimes and cause so much bloodshed. They believe that they are fulfilling the Instructions of Allah/God and none else.

By the same token, they (Islamists) are promised Paradise if they are killed while fulfilling their "holy mission".

If you start discussing the roots of Islamic terrorism, namely the Quran, politicians, and the media at least in Germany, for instance, stop the discussion and brand you as someone who is inflicted by "Islam phobia"

Some journalists and "Islam experts" recommend re-interpreting those atrocious passages in the Quran.

What do they want to re-interpret? "kill" is "kill" no matter how you interpret it. "Kill" means take the life of someone by hook or crook. There is no room what so ever for interpretation. In no language in the world "kill" means" "kiss"!

The majority of politicians and media in the West avoid criticising Islam as a religion for fear of provoking confrontation with the Muslim co-citizens. They try by all means to ingratiate themselves with all Muslims.

On the other hand, and this has been my experience, lots of Muslims are startled/shocked and not offended when I show them those atrocious passages in the Quran. For over 90% of Muslims have never directly read the Quran.

Almost every day, we get news which proves over and over again how brutal and ruthless Islamists are. The only thing they know and do is "kill". And that is what their "holy" book tells them to do.

In Gaza they store their rockets and weapons in schools and hospitals and from there they launch their missiles. They deliberately use civilians, children and women as shields. Then they and their sympathizers start shouting: you see how brutal the Israelis are?! They target civilians!

Islamists are uncivilized. They are unable to sit down at the negotiation table to negotiate a compromise or a deal.

They insist on lifting the embargo which Israel imposes on Gaza. If this embargo were lifted, they would not focus on reconstructing their country, no. They would import more weapons to kill Israelis, mostly civilians. 

It is a proven fact that Saudi Arabia and Qatar support Islamists with weapons and money across the globe. Those friends of the West do that!

Why do they do that? Saudi Arabia and Qatar which hate the guts of each other follow a double strategy. They support Islamist terrorists and later they, if need be, they act as mediator or brokers between terrorists and the other side of the conflict. Qatar has been doing so between Hamas and Israel.

Furthermore, these oil-rich countries use part of their petrodollars to keep the world busy with Islamic terrorism, so that no body has got the time to demand democracy and human rights in Qatar and Saudi Arabia.  

Some politicians in the West know all that but they deliberately ignore it. Why? These two oil countries might lower their oil production and perhaps turn off the oil tap completely. Oil will become more expensive. And that is not good for the global market.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar have huge investments in western economies. Besides, they yearly purchase huge amounts of weapons in the West for billions of dollars, on which thousands of jobs in the West depend.

What has been so far the contribution of Barack Obama, the president of the most powerful nation in the wirld in the fight against Islamic terrorism?

He and his Foreign Minister John Kerry draw red lines, and when these lines are violated or crossed, they hesitate to take action and invent all kinds of excuses! 

It is good t be peaceful and to try all peaceful means. But sometimes you have to intervene by force to prevent the worst.

Thanks to the hesitant policy of Obama, the Islamist have become more and more powerful.

In addition, we have in the Middle East politicians like Nuri Al Maliki of Iraq who are corrupt and inapt as political leaders. They have failed to deliver democracy and all kinds of reforms in their countries. Al Maliki also failed to build a competent modern army.

All this has contributed to strengthening the Islamists in their fight for a medieval Islamic state.

Islamic terror is not a natural catastrophe. It is man-made by local and international politicians in the wrong position, taking wrong decisions. 

I think it's high time that we start discussing the causes of Islamic terrorism. It's pointless to carry on discussing the symptoms at the cost of causes.

The causes of Islamic terrorism have got to be straight forward discussed. Otherwise we keep running in a vicious circle.

Politicians, the national and international media must start exposing Islam as a violent "faith".

Atrocious passages in the Quran must be exposed every where, so that Muslims and non-Muslims see what kind of "religion" Islam is.

First, the causes and then the symptoms. I hope that one day we'll reach this point before it's too late.
