| Raymond Ibrahim: The Muslim Will vs. the Western Way
| Wednesday, April 20, 2016
|Jihad Watch : In the ongoing struggle between Islam and the West, one important
fact is regularly overlooked: one civilization has the will to triumph,
but not the way; the other has the way to triumph, but not the will. Some who dread Islam do not seem to understand this.
They think that
Islam is an irresistible force to be reckoned with; they see Muslim
migrants as hordes of violent men invading Europe; they call on Western
men to make a stand, resist the onslaught, save their women and
children. To be sure, this portrayal is historically valid: for one thousand
years, Muslims repeatedly invaded and conquered portions of
Europe—terrorizing, massacring, raping and enslaving in the name of
Allah—and were only repulsed by force of arms.
Today’s situation is far less dramatic and epic; it’s actually quite
pathetic. Muslim terrorists, rapists, and ISIS-sympathizers are not
entering the West against its will but because of it. In other words, the West is 100% responsible for this “invasion.” Consider it by analogy. What if zoos began to maintain that it’s a slanderous stereotype
to say that lions by nature prey on zebras? Zoos start introducing
lions into zebra enclosures.
The inevitable happens: although well fed,
some lions continue chasing and mauling zebras. Surely only a great
fool would blame such carnage on lions—who, after all, are merely being
lions—while ignoring those who insist on placing lions with zebras in
the first place. In the end, the relationship between Islam and the West is understood by the dichotomy of the will and the way. The West has the way—including the military and economic might—to utterly neutralize Islam, one way or the other.
Yet it doesn’t even have the will to preserve itself. Ban Islam’s presence from the West—which is doable, provided the will is there—and Islamic terrorism on Western soil ceases. It’s that simple.
Conversely, Islam most certainly has the will to eliminate the West, though it currently doesn’t have the way (minus those ways the West gives it)….
