Coming Pressing Problems

 

Our world is in a state of flux with only one driving force determining the future and that future is a bleak one. The greatest force being exerted is one which demands of all they surrender their will and simply follow a strict set of rules enforced at the will of self-appointed learned ones. The definition in this future of a learned one is one versed in The Book which was compiled approximately twelve-hundred years ago and derived its base ideals and ideas from two centuries earlier. The most revered figure in this book was a man of conquest who eradicated his enemies, not simply vanquishing them and ruling over them. Those he fought were less than human simply because they fought against his armies and refused to accept him as the voice of the deity he imagined from visions in a cave. This conquest is being accomplished through infiltration and upon attaining a sizeable percent of any population demanding equal rights and the exalting of their law over any law in place. Their intention is the replacement of Judeo-Christian culture with Islam and the eradication of liberal societies replacing them with a retrograde society ruled under a political system which they pass off as a religion, it is nothing of the kind, it is a ruling ideology which suppresses human emotions, thoughts, will, imagination and freedoms. This is the future which is winning the day simply because those who should resist and demand their rights are too passive and have completely lost any respect for their founding principles and their former religious teachings which exalted mankind as a reasoning, rational thinking entity, not a slave surrendered to drudgery of an existence. Look wherever Islam rules and ask yourselves, do I desire to have my society mirror that of those nations? Do I want to live in New Saudi Arabia or New Egypt or New Turkey? These are actually the more ordered of the Islamic societies. Others include Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran. There is even the possibility that there might be a disagreement over which version of Islam that should be followed and then you end up with something resembling Yemen, Libya or Syria. There are alternatives but they require effort.

 

The first thing which must be stated is we have no problem with Islam as one religion amongst other religions and ideologies. Islam would be welcome as a coequal partner in our society with Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shinto, Confucianism, and even Secular Humanism. We would welcome those who believe in Allah as long as also included in the society is freedom to believe in Hashem, Jesus, Confucius, Buddha or no deity at all and follow rationalism or other philosophies and religions all accepted on equal grounds. This is acceptable and as soon as Islam can agree to such an arrangement then they are welcome but as long as Islamics, Muslims that demand their rules be superior to all others and theirs be the preferred religion on the way to being the only religion enforced initially through coercion and in the end by the sword, then Islam must be fought as would any other fascist imperialist dominance seeking force. Should Islam continue to be determined on world conquest, just as is and was Communism and were Nazism and a multitude of others before including even Christianity at an earlier point before the Reformation, they will sooner or later run into opposition which will stiffen as their pressuring increases resulting in an unimaginable conflagration if they insist on world domination. Islam is capable of being pluralistic if only they would apply elements from the Mecca Quranic writings from earlier in the life and preaching of Muhammad and replace the later texts which were granted preeminence by a later interpretation so as to further the conquests across North Africa and into Western Europe as Islam conquered much of the Iberian Peninsula (see map below). Subsequent expansions by Islamic forces reached the Philippines, Indonesia, as far as Tours, France before being turned back by Charles “The Hammer” Martel and took Constantinople which fell in 1453 and continued on laying siege to Vienna which was relieved when Polish King Jan Sobieski III (Depicted Below) took command of his entire army aided by troops from the Holy Roman Empire and Hungarian forces in the year 1683.

These were the active conquests by the Arab Islamic Empire followed by the Ottoman Empire which was defeated finally during World War I. The Arab expansive colonialist conquests have colonized and all but eradicated through totalitarian subjugation and intermarriage similar to the Spanish influence in their colonial expansions. These conquests persisted even during and throughout outlasting the European colonialist holdings which began after World War I in 1918 to 1921 and almost all were released to local rule by the end of the 1950s while the Arab’s conquest and colonial empire still exists and has existed for anywhere from a thousand years to twelve-hundred-fifty years. Theirs is the longest colonial empire in history with the sole exceptions being Russia and China which some claim are empires due to the sheer size of the nation of Russia and the size and population of China despite neither actually conquered their peoples and lands as much as congealed rule. So, the claims by Arabs of suffering from their European conquest and colonialism, this is an empty accusation when one compares the Arab conquest and colonialist empire which spread from the Arabic Peninsula across an area greater in size than Russia and rivalling China in population. The Arab Islamic colonial expansionism is now once again surging in an attempt to complete the commands from the Quran to spread Islam over the entire globe converting every inhabitant to Islam by coercion or by the sword only coming to a conclusion once all follow Islam as commanded by the Quran. Here is a video showing Muslims in their own words defining their intentions.

 

 

One more forceful faction calls for terrorism as a form of intimidation also following the command in the Quran to terrorize the enemy which in this case is all of the infidel living in the decadent Western World. There is another driving force behind terrorism which is money. Yes, there is a lot of money to be made conducting terrorism providing you terrorize the correct target and for an approved cause. One of the apparently favored causes is the replacement of the State of Israel and the home of the Jews into a terror state ruled most likely by Hamas called Palestine where a second Holocaust would be perpetrated by Muslims who do not believe there was a first Holocaust but are prepared to commit a second. Their conquest of Israel would be complete once they have murdered every Jews residing in Israel and according to the Hamas charter going on to conquer the world for Hamas and its leadership and finish killing the Jews the world over. As far as the monies, well, that comes from the United Nations, the European Union, the United States, and many of the European nations. Many of the nations sending millions of dollars and Euros to the “Palestinian cause” are seriously in debt and actually have no real funds to send, but send they do. Think terrorism does not pay? Then explain this video which covers much of the perfidy committed by those purporting to care for the Palestinian refugees and the downtrodden poor under their rule. Ever wonder why the plight never appears to be relieved despite the monies given to relieve their plight? Watch this and see.

 

 

For those seeking links to facts and information about the terror hoax and how Western Nations pay others whose intentions is their downfall and to commit terrorist acts until they succeed in destroying all around them while pocketing millions and billions of dollars, money beyond what they could ever spend in their entire lifetime, here is an article with many links and much information within which says much of what we wish to convey and feel is a good reference.

 

Some of the more prescient commentaries included in the article are truisms which have historic proof that they have held true throughout history and can be counted upon to make predictions in the world today. One of the most frightening has been whatever starts with the Jews never ends with the Jews, it will spread and potentially have effect throughout the world and as far as we know, potentially beyond the Earth itself on out into the cosmos. Slavery may have predated the Jews but the greatest historical work tells the story of the Jews being saved from their torment of slavery in Mizraim (Egypt, Hebrew Spelling: מצרים). Slavery has slowly but inexorably been erased from the world of civilized man much as Hashem freed the Jews from slavery. Yes, when the Jews receive favor, that favor will also bless the remainder of the world, perhaps beyond, even if it takes thousands of years. Unfortunately for the world, when evils are visited upon the Jews, it spreads to the rest of those in the affected area with an undeniable and certain and immediate future. The Holocaust murdered six-million Jews and at least nine-million additional who were Roma, mentally challenged, physically deficient, unwanted, Polish poor, Russian soldiers and more (see graph below). Then there were the military and civilian deaths from the war itself which spanned the entirety of the globe (see graph below). This was the ultimate in carnage by mankind thusfar, but the coming apocalypse will dwarf World War II civilian deaths just as World War II surpassed World War I civilian deaths when compared against military deaths (see graph below). This is what the world is facing if a new force does not emerge to stabilize and resist the coming Islamic rewriting of the history and future of the world allowing only the definition of the world which allows only for Islam and must erase all else. The claims of world conquest and the remaking of the world in the image of how Muhammad remade the Mecca-Medina area and the areas conquered by him and those following related in our above video are a real and valid threat. This coming push intends to finish what was started in our first map first conquering the Western World as once they have conquered the West, the Muslim leaders rightfully believe that the remainder of the world will succumb or be destroyed in a cleansing fire brought on by the use of nuclear weapons as the Islamic leaders have no fear or hesitation of implementing whatever weapon is available as they have proven throughout their history. It is necessary that there be a force which forces the Muslim leadership to understand that the West will not just lie down and allow them to cut our throats as they intend.

Much of this is ominous to say the least, but nothing is set in stone thus the reality can always be altered providing the right moves are made. The Nazis appeared unstoppable but between errors in judgment and tactics and the stubborn resolution of one Winston Churchill and the bombing of Pearl Harbor bringing the United States and its manufacturing power into the war on the side of Churchill, Russia and the allies, the end of Nazi and Japanese imperialism was doomed. Napoléon was another who appeared unstoppable but he was stuck fighting in Russia during the winter and the battle of Waterloo and that was all for Napoléon. The Soviet Union ran aground when the United States under Ronald Reagan instigated a project known as Star Wars but was simply the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) which literally spent the Soviet Union into bankruptcy. Ronald Reagan believed that the Soviet Union was on shaky foundations financially and vulnerable due to that weakness and he twisted that wound until they broke. He was not in office when the end came, but he was definitely the causal effect and his Vice President George H. W. Bush was elected and continued Reagan’s initiatives bringing the end to the Cold War. Similar walls have been struck by every empire which attempted to conquer the world. What remains to be seen is whether a force will arise which will force, or enable, the alteration of Islamic Quranic interpretation such that the Mecca moderation becomes preeminent over the more violent and imperial Medina verses. This is what is necessary for the world to continue to live in peace and with progress and freedom and human rights. The cries from Muslims that they are demanding their human rights are deceit with which they are applying their initial push and foothold from which they will usurp the entirety of the Western World through subversion. In a free society it is the public who are ultimately responsible and the votes in coming elections and the reporting by the media will tell what the future will hold and not necessarily what is desired. If these forces refuse to address the immediacy of the situation it is up to the people to demand a change in priorities. The coming United States and European elections will be telling and all we can do is vote, wait and pray.

Refugee Lack of Civility Breaking the Silence

 

Angela Merkel and the rest of the European and Western leaders, including President Obama if his hopes for bringing hundreds of thousands if not millions of these so-called refugees to the United States unvetted, was an egg which sitting on only made the reality strike their home-front all the harder when their criminality rose to heights insuppressible. That threshold was surpassed when all-told in Germany alone there were well over a thousand women who filed police reports over sexual criminality from manhandling to rape and virtually every indiscretion and criminal act inbetween in just the first week of the new year. Now that this dirty little secret has been exposed and reporting the criminal and anti-social behavior has lost its protective labeling of being racist or worse, we can expect the police to soon be so inundated with complaints that actions, and fairly drastic action at that, will have to be implemented before a general revolt of the citizenry explodes and vigilante justice begins to me meted out by the people. The gamble that the refugees could be allowed to enter into a society for which their life experiences had not prepared them sufficiently for fitting in and that those allowed in without any certification of need or appropriate qualification of actual refugee status was an open invitation for the worst of the worst to rush in under the guise of being in dire need of saving and even remotely thankful for the generosity being given.

 

The initial signs that there was an obvious problem with the influx of presumed refugees was the higher than expected numbers of total refugee population and within that a far higher number and percentage of what has been termed military aged unattached males. The severe imbalance should have been the first signal that something was amiss and the hoped for relief effort was not actually providing relief for families suffering from the civil war tragedies in Syria but rather a planned invasion designed to inundate Europe with an army of disruptors whose presence would prove unmanageable and would tear apart the fabric of European life. The worst part is this first wave is just a precursor for the tsunami waiting in the deep ocean of potential refugees and planted terror functionaries and cell leaders which will come in successive waves already set-up and planned. This entire operation conceived in some back room where the deciders of the fate of millions of Europeans checked their obligations to their nation’s people aside and undertook an ill-advised plunge at the direction of those with the sole intent of bringing the next major conflagration down on Europe. What has become evident is this was a means of forcing Europe to either act in a manner which none have a stomach for, a war of civilized world against the abrasive assault of barbarism or surrender of the society to the ravages of the undeterred hooliganism. The difference is these hooligans do not settle for painting graffiti or other minor criminality, these hooligans are more the ilk of those from European history of a time of Musketeers but without any fear or gentrification even possible. These are marauders who know no limits and are not deterred or cowed by words or threat of arrest as they do not plan on being deterred, arrested or stopped anyway short of in response to overwhelming force. The measures which we now need be unleashed will in and of itself be of such a shocking level, many Europeans would rather suffer the slow long death of their civilization and culture than fight to retain them. That is the entire bet lain out before Europe and her people, do what must or surrender their fate. This is where creeping Sharia takes off the restrictions and demands Europe surrender to what the Islamic world claims is their inevitable future.

That leads us to the question, will Europe survive or simply be the next civilized society to succumb to barbarians who have breached the gates. The real sadness is that the gates were not breached but rather opened wide in a sign that the leaders have no stomach to defend the realm. Now we will witness whether the liberal progressive there is no difference between our culture and their culture can realize the truth and then actually act. Demonstrations and demands that the political class do what they are tasked to do will be of no consequence as your political class had already surrendered you and your children’s and grandchildren’s fate and future to the Islamic demand for their surrender. They have reflected and completely acquiesced to the liberal progressive mantra that there are no real rights or wrongs, all customs and rules of conduct by one group cannot be weighed as better or even more favorable than any other and there is no difference in the transformational societal ethic of European Judeo-Christian based civil rule of law society which is a full two centuries of hard-fought development which led to democratic rule, the rule of law over the rule of men, libertarian rights of the individual, respectful norms of expectations and rise from serfdom through a long, arduous and sometimes excessively violent reforms. The Islamic world had yet to have its Reformation, its Renaissance, its Revolutions taking them out of serfdom, out of authoritarian rule, out of the darkness of a class based existence where might is the only right and suppression by force the only civilizing reality. The leaders of Europe have invited in en-masse a devolutionary force which if left unchecked will return Europe to the stage where one’s right to a civil life was subject to their ability and willingness to use force to establish that right or surrender to a protector.

 

That takes us to delving into the reasoning which can be the sole reasoning for allowing this invasion to such an influence, shock-truth. Shock-truth can be defined as the introduction of an influence or threat so severe that people are forced to make an uncomforting choice between dire actions or complete surrender to a protective enslavement. This could be the final scream of the progressive dreamers of a society ruled by the will and influence of those more noble and knowledgeable than the commoner and who sit atop a power structure which assures them of compliant subjects who have no recourse, or at least none that they are willing to allow. The people of Europe have a simple choice to make, do they wish to return to the days of lords and ladies, kings and queens, barons and baronesses or do they desire the rule of law where all are subject voluntarily to the laws of the lands, government is of, for and by the people and society is ruled through self-control over brute force. The thing which many in western society have forgotten or possibly, with the education system so dumbed-down that history has never been taught, never known is that the polite and law abiding society in which they used to live was accomplished by a series of conflicts, demands, revolutions, and a level of self-imposed, self-control and the agreement that nothing less was ever to be expected or permitted in the societal structure. The secret to modern Western society is that the self has an investment in the society, the self is permitted certain rights which are closely linked to certain responsibilities and for these rights these responsibilities must also be observed. The majority of the people which charged through the open gates and into the most gentrified climes of Western civilization, namely Europe and potentially coming to the United States and a sizeable number already allowed into Canada, have not had their society take the intermediate steps in which the rule of men is slowly and step-by-step introduced and made the way things are done. The Western society is based on contracts between individuals and government where the people demand to be completely in control of their lives and to live respectfully with regard to one’s neighbors. Knowing that each individual cannot be permitted complete autonomy, we will use driving a vehicle as our example, thus ignoring center-line marking which restrict their movement from swerving down the road on whichever side of the marking demarking direction of travel as they please deciding their first half of their trips to drive on the right side and after noon drive on the left side. Instead we have agreed to surrender that small freedom to make driving less perilous. With the progression of time the cities grew and there were more vehicles so a new idea was discovered, roads wise enough to allow for multiple vehicles to share the road side-by-side going in the same direction in addition to the aforementioned centerline agreement. This worked kind-of well but it did increase collisions as people had no restrictions and simply stayed on their side of the centerline but otherwise used the widened road as they pleased. This led to another agreement and we surrendered the freedom of swerving on our side of the centerline to restricting ourselves to lane markers and life became that much more ordered. Then came speed limits, turn signals, seatbelts, gasoline tax and in the not too distant future once electric cars rule the roads, mileage taxes as the government is going to take their slice of your driving freedom no matter what we wish individually. If we were to gather and as a group demand there never be a mileage tax, then that as the will of the people would win out.

 

The new influx of people do not understand that concept and instead believe that one is to do as they please until forced to restrain themselves and as soon as those restraints are not present returning to taking all they can by individual right of force. They have not developed the limiting constraints of total freedom. Initially, when introduced to a society where self-restraint is the rule of interactions, those raised with the concept of take what you can, when you can, wherever you can and do not allow anybody to tell you different for that if they do not back their demand up with overwhelming force and you believe you are the stronger, then ignore them and rebuke them with force if they do not understand your rights over their rights. These differently civilized believe in what we call the rule of the jungle, there are predators, then, and there is prey, how they view the people of Europe. The next step is easy, as long as the predator is of sufficient strength and power they feed on the prey but if the prey possesses massively superior numbers or size on their side the predator might decide to seek lesser prey on which to feed. Simple example is even a lion will choose to take down and eat a gazelle or antelope but hesitated when facing a herd of Cape Buffalo or a bull elephant. At the other extreme a lion will not challenge or even attempt to resist giving up their kill if a troop of hundreds of baboons challenge them over who gets the prize, the kill and who goes away still hungry. The leaders of Europe have allowed in a large and extremely aggressive troop of baboons, actually a number of troops of baboons and even our appointed lions, the police, are cowed and afraid to approach and restrain the troops as they run marauding and destroying the savannah where buildings grow as grasses and European lives are being destroyed. The lions can and will protect the sheeple but only if the sheeple can become more like cape Buffalos than sheeple. Up until now the standing rule in Europe was endeavor to persevere and otherwise to ignore the “little” inconveniences of the refugees as they became more acclimated to European society and the rules of the playground. Well, surprise, surprise; these refugees, or at least a large segment of those who came with them, have decided that the entirety of the playground is their game and they are the alpha-predators and Europeans simply do not matter as they are the Dhimmi, the kafir, they are those who Allah does not protect and thus if they do not protect themselves, then Allah’s will is for them to be subjugated by the true recipients of Allah’s will. Read their societal guidebook, we know it as the Quran but for all intents and purposes their guidebook may as well be the recently republished Mein Kampf which apparently had been purchased in unprecedented numbers such that it makes one wonder who are purchasing Mein Kampf and what are their plans for utilizing it.

Mein Kampf, the Quran, for those who are not of the defined chosen ones have no rights, no recourse, no hope unless they find a champion who will save them. Often these champions prove to be a bigger problem and bring greater ruination in the society when the results are measured. Simply look through history and it is replete with stories of the ruination brought by saviors. The French Revolution brought disorder and mass slaughters and the French needed a savior. Enter Napoleon Bonaparte and the disorder was ordered and then came the fall of France. The Romans needed somebody to repair their aging and slowly sinking society and enter the Caesars as a god-like status and absolute ruler banishing the Senate and any pretenses and Rome’s fate was thus sealed. The Czars had become too demanding and the Russian economy was negligent if not completely absent so they needed a savior. They attempted a form of democracy which was not given the necessary time and enter Lenin with “The Plan” and we know where that led for millions and millions of people and the ramifications’ ripples are still bouncing within the walls of Russia. Sure there have been saviors whose plan appears to have worked, the Founding Fathers of the United States, but they were a committee of as unlikely saviors as one could imagine, a group of gentrified aristocrats intent on forming a government of the people, of the masses for they know that the people as a whole have more ability to rule themselves given the correct tools.

But even the “Great Experiment in self-rule” which was, and for the time being still is, the United States still survives though many of its basic principles have been and are under assaulted and when any one branch of their governance breaks, the end will be in sight even if the visibility is clouded by the smoke and mirrors which will be used. There will come those who offer the promises of great changes and deepest hopes though both will be undefined, and in that lack of clarity lays the greatest lie of them all, the lies we tell ourselves that everything is fine, there is no threat, no problem, no reason to get all flustered and heated over, it will work itself out. Will it this time? Is this imported and continuing importation of this other which is not us, does not understand us, does not assimilate and become another part of us, will we prevail or will this be the blow that takes the timbers out from beneath us? These are your question Europe and as you decide, so likely will the rest of the Western World and the few who hold out will either be the sole hope for the future or eventually sink into the mire as it is being permitted to subsume all we hold dear, whether we know what it is or where we are guaranteed such. There is no surrender so pitiful as the one given without a fight for that is the voluntary subjugation. Is that the point that the Western World has sunk. Perhaps the only way to end this editorial, this excuse for commentary is to quote a giant amongst men who was treasured and reviled by his peers but he will always be respected no matter one’s loving embrace of his council or hateful spite begrudging him any credit he may be due, Samuel Adams will forever be the patriot for it was he who laid out so clearly the choice of his time, and it has now come to be our choice in our time. We know here where our feet will make that final stand when this is the time of decision. Samuel Adams explained it as such,

 

 

“If ye love wealth better than liberty,
the tranquility of servitude
better than the animating contest of freedom,
go home from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or your arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you,
and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”

The forces are cementing their positions readying for a battle for the heart of the Middle East. ISIS has firm control of areas spanning Syria and central Iraq where they are facing the Kurds holding their own to the north supported by Iranian and United States efforts. Iran has given the Kurdish fighters some needed light weapons and the United States has provided crucial air support especially in Kobane. To the south ISIS faces Iranian and Iraqi forces supported by Iranian and United States air power yet still appears to be complacent cementing their positions and slowing their assault as their forces are approaching their limit until they are able to amass additional recruits to augment their ranks. ISIS should not be underestimated as they possess some potent arms and are mostly lacking in air power, barring a solution it is this lack of airpower which may sink ISIS in the end. It is very difficult to mass forces for attacks on positions when you do not control the skies over your heads leaving massed forces vulnerable to airstrikes.

 

Iran is utilizing a number of outside forces to extend their control. They have Hezballah fighting to assist their tenuous hold onto Syria by Bashir al-Assad and Lebanon. The IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) are assisting in Syria as well as fighting ISIS within Iraq where they enjoy air support provided largely by the Iranians as well as coalition bombings headed by the United States. In Yemen Iran has been supporting the efforts of the Houthis who recently forced the government to resign as they took complete control over the nation’s capital and captured the former President of Yemen. This development will deliver a strike on United States plans of using mostly drones to target mostly al-Qaeda leaders in southeastern Yemen. These forces are currently facing a direct challenge from the Houthis armed and directed by Iran who aim to take control over all of Yemen placing Iranian control over the mouth of the Red Sea and controlling the southern access and departures from the Suez Canal through the mouth of the Red Sea. Such control would also blockade the southern Israeli port at Eilat. This would augment the Iranian threat over the Straits of Hormuz through which much of the world’s oil flows.

 

Two of the richest targets lie within Saudi Arabia and will be well defended. These two main assets are of wildly different influences. The obvious are the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, the birthplaces of Islam. The others are the equally obvious oil fields clustered largely in the north eastern provinces of Saudi Arabia. It is through their control of these supplies and their high potential for output that the Saudis also control the going price of a barrel of petroleum. Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family recently suffered from the loss of their monarch, King Abdullah, who was replaced by King Salman who was often referred to as the Warrior Prince. This may prove to be an auspicious timing of placing a more militant leader on the Saudi throne just as they are facing threats from the northern and southern borders.

 

Then there have been rumors emanating from Ankara, Turkey where President Erdogan has been making innuendos to his taking a more permanent role perhaps in the nature of a monarch or sultan where he would rule absolutely through his power equal to that of the legislature and other offices in Turkey. The designs of President Erdogan to assume higher and permanent power in Turkey have been well known as have his delusions that from such a position he would be empowered to reform the grandeur and control of the former Ottoman Empire. Additionally, President Erdogan has been playing a duel game when it comes to ISIS. On the one hand, Turkey belongs to NATO and as such must support the efforts to contain and ultimately degrade and destroy ISIS which the Turkish government has done so very reluctantly. On the other hand Turkey has permitted ISIS to utilize Turkish crossings into Syria through which to resupply ISIS forces as well as run their recruitment within Turkey and thus provide them with access to a border crossing which permits the flow of manpower in and out of ISIS occupied Syria.

 

The other force is probably the most interesting force in all of the lands of Islam. We are referring to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi who recently addressed Al-Azhar University in Cairo signaling his desire to have a reformation of Islam to facilitate making the religion more accepting of modern standards and allowing for separation between state powers and religious powers. His address to Al-Azhar University, probably the central and most well accredited of all universities which teach and define Islam to the rest of the Muslim world. His speech along with a video excerpt can be found in our article titled “The Islamic Reformer in Egypt.” Should President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi succeed in his call for a reformation of Islam being undertaken it could prove to be one of the greatest reformational redefinitions of religion since the Protestant Reformation of Christianity, a change which made way for the flourishing of science and an eventual coexistence being formulated whereby each took responsibility for their own ideas and ideals while permitting the other the freedom to do so. The ensuing blossoming of scientific research and discoveries would be known as the Renaissance. What a similar reformation to Islam might bring is almost beyond imagination. If such a change in Islam and the practice of such beliefs as were in effect during the Golden Age of Islam such could change the face of the world.

 

This is where the struggle for the heart and soul of Islam is being fought and much of the world is simply sitting on the sidelines ignoring the potentials before them. It is not often that the world is offered up such potentially defining a moment as sits before us today. Islam very well could take a huge stride towards modernity if only the correct forces could take control in the near future. We are guaranteed that should ISIS or Iran become the preeminent force in Islam and define the path for Muslims for the next thousand years we will see nothing change and Jihad will continue to mean first and foremost the conquest of the world for Islam, bringing wars and terrorism to every nation bordering Islam or having a significant Muslim community making up over twenty percent of the population. Should the Saudis become the leading force in Islam the pace of reformation would be painfully slow, but there would be potential for eventual changes necessary for Islam and the modern world of science to flourish and be in harmony. But there is greater hope if only the world will heed and echo the cry from Cairo.

 

The one ray of true hope comes out of Egypt and currently consists of one man’s cry from within the darkness demanding that the lights be allowed to once again shine over Islam. That cry comes from Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi who is challenging the leading Imams to answer his plaintiff cry for the modernization of Islam. What is fascinating is that the ideas President el-Sisi is demanding are also a call for Islam to return to reclaim its place as a home leading the world for scientific research, medical breakthroughs, poetic and prose literature, mathematical formulas and other academic pursuits as were the norm during the Golden Age of Islam. President el-Sisi desires for Islam to reclaim their place as the leaders in cultural development and scientific discoveries. The change that President el-Sisi champions can only be made possible by a change of heart from most of the Islamic leadership, the Islamic teachers and Imams throughout the Muslim world. President el-Sisi made his first speech at the preeminent Al-Azhar University which is the leading institute of learning in all of Islam. If there is any reality to the mantra we hear constantly after every Islamic terrorist assault that “Islam is the religion of peace,” then the call by President el-Sisi is the answer and call behind which this reputed majority could stand and bring about that transformation to an honest religion of peace the world has been waiting. Missing this opportunity and the struggle for the heart of Islam will be won by Isis, the Mullahs of Iran or whoever proves to be the most violent force. Islamic leadership, and this includes the Mullahs of Iran and the hate filled preachers who hold the current heart of Islam. Every major change throughout history began with that one singular, plaintive cry from out of the darkness for change and the turning on of the light which would only forever grow brighter eventually reaching even the most remote corners of the recesses from amongst the kingdoms.
