It may be the single most vexing question in today's world: What to do about Islam and its rapidly expanding violent jihad?
The answer can be found in the October issue of WND's
always-groundbreaking monthly magazine, Whistleblower, in a provocative
issue titled "THE PROBLEM WITH ISLAM."
Most Americans were oblivious to Islam until a certain Tuesday
morning five years ago. But on Sept. 11, 2001, they woke up to learn
they were in the midst of a world war, targeted for destruction by an
enemy they had scarcely ever heard of. Today, militant Muslims are on
the rampage worldwide, some recently calling for the assassination of
the pope, with others threatening that unless Benedict XVI converts to
Islam, Christian churches will be burnt to the ground.
But such outrageous threats, as well as the mass murder that
often follows, have become commonplace. On the slightest provocation –
a newspaper publishing cartoons depicting Muhammad, a journalist making
a comment about Muhammad during the Miss Universe pageant – angry
Muslims erupt into a campaign of arson, brutality and murder.
Meanwhile, as Western governments and journalism organizations
continue to refer to Islam as a "religion of peace," virtually all
terrorist acts worldwide – over 5,000 instances since 9-11 – have been
committed by Muslims, against Jews, against Christians, against other
non-Muslims, even against other types of Muslims.
Yet, there's an even bigger Islamic threat than violent jihad.
Today, the West is being transformed by Islam. Especially in Britain
and Europe, where Islamic immigration is already well advanced,
analysts conclude it's simply a matter of time before some of these
nations have Muslim majorities. Then comes Sharia law and the total
transformation of these formerly Christian countries into repressive
Exaggeration? Consider that the Netherlands' justice minister,
Piet Hein Donner, recently announced he would welcome Sharia law to his
European nation – already rapidly filling up with Muslims – if the
majority votes for it. Under Sharia, just as in Arab-Muslim nations
currently under this strict Islamic legal system like Saudi Arabia,
Europe may see amputations – as prescribed in the Quran – as punishment
for certain crimes; women publicly flogged and sometimes hanged or
stoned to death for adultery or other so-called "crimes against
chastity"; and death sentences for leaving the Muslim religion, or even
for preaching Christianity, as occurs in Pakistan under its notorious
What about America? Though the percentage of Muslims in this
huge nation is much lower than in Europe, the growth of radical Islam
already has a powerful foothold in many parts of American society.
Beyond the rapid proliferation of Saudi-funded mosques, Islamic centers
and schools teaching hatred for America, consider the nation's prison
"Radical Muslim chaplains, trained in a foreign ideology,
certified in foreign-financed schools, and acting in coordination to
impose an extremist agenda have gained a monopoly over Islamic
religious activities in American state, federal, and city prisons and
jails," says author Stephen Schwartz. "Imagine each prison Islamic
community as a little Saudi kingdom behind prison walls, without the
amenities. They have effectively induced American authorities to
establish a form of 'state Islam' or 'government-certified Islam' in
Despite all this, most politicians and journalists in the West
– whether out of sympathy, or out of fear of having their throats cut –
are afraid to criticize Islam publicly. Yet if radical Islam can
succeed in throttling all criticism, from the pope on down, it will
have succeeded in imposing de facto sharia law– which prohibits all
criticism of Islam or its prophet – on the entire world.
