Saving Western Civilization Demands that We Study Islam

~ Presenting a simple resource guide to gain a clear understanding of the REAL Islam

Why do Westerners need to study Islam? The answer is very simple.

If Islam were “just a religion,” studying it would not be necessary unless one simply wanted to learn about the religion.

However, Islam is not just a religion. It is also a political ideology that when put into practice results in loss of freedom, violence, and ultimately mass slavery of its populations. To many, this statement may seem “intolerant.” However, those who study Islam in depth, without apology for Islam, and those who study Islam’s historical record, will indeed find that Islam poses an existential threat to free civilizations.

This does not mean that “Muslims are bad.” That would be bigotry, because one must assess a person based on his or her character, heart, and actions, not based on race, color, or creed. Just to clarify, Muslims come from all races, and thus expressing discontent with Islam is not “racist.” It is also not “Islamophobic,” because it is not an “irrational fear” to be concerned about the loss of freedom under totalitarian ideologies. Islamophobic is a nonsense (but very clever) word, coined by Islamists to shut down criticism of Islam by impugning the mental state of those discussing it.

Many Muslims don’t study their own doctrines. Others ignore their doctrine, and just try to lead good lives. Many feel trapped by Islam, and in fact are Islam’s first victims—especially among women. Some support Islam’s goals, but don’t take direct action. At the end of this essay, there is a link to a fourteen minute video called By the Numbers, which reports on what Muslims around the world actually believe.

Thus, because of Islam’s political ideology, I believe that Westerners must study Islam. If we do not, preserving Western civilization with all of its freedoms and values will be very difficult.

"A code of ethics for public school teachers that was recently introduced in the Maine Legislature is making headlines, and will serve as an important test-case for efforts to prohibit indoctrination in our nation’s schools. But local educators are responding with hysteria to this commonsense education reform proposal, even as its legislative sponsor responds with calm and logic."
