I keep hearing from politicians, media, pop singers, and other deep thought-leaders that we will not be divided by Islamist terrorism.
Sorry, pards, but division is the last thing that Islamists want. Quite the opposite. They want no division whatsoever in society. They want everyone to be part of a universal caliph with all of us using the same words, holding the same thoughts, worshiping the same understanding of Godliness, and practicing the same regressive worldview.
If thought-leaders would simply read what the Islamists write and distribute, this would not be as misunderstood as it is.
Looks like I'm not the only one to notice: The Ruin of England
[Before anyone loses their water, an "Islamist" is one who believes in conversion through terror and force, with mortal punishment for infidels. That word does not describe the Muslims with whom I've been honored to share classrooms as colleagues and students over the past thirty years .]
