    Islam and the Radical West

    The political orthodoxy of the left is the gateway drug to jihad.

    But the influence of the Awlakis of the world can’t fully account for the mind-set of these jihadists. They are also sons of the West—educated in the schools of multiculturalism, reared on the works of
    Noam Chomsky and perhaps Frantz Fanon, consumers of a news diet heavy with reports of perfidy by American or British or Israeli soldiers. If Islamism is their ideological drug of choice, the political orthodoxies of the modern left are their gateway to it.

          I would agree to extent with this article. Here is what is really going on (some on the 'right' could fall into this category, as well.)

          2nd Corinthians 4:4
          The god of this age (Satan) has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

          Jesus The Messiah stated in Luke 13: 1-5
          Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2 Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

          John 14:5-7
          Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7If you really know me, you will know[b] my Father as well.

            I'm uncomfortable trolling religious scripture regardless of the religion.
            But I will, if you force me to.

                  Then clearly you must be atheist? (Your choice) however the Bible is a valid source and reference, not opinion, as many give here with no validity to back them up. I am not sure from where any here get their moral standing from? Which with moral-relativity the 'standard of the day' that means it all the same, supposedly. (Which of course only works in the West, the rest of the world does not care nor wastes time in such nonsense.)

                      You want answers to the problems of this age, then when they are given, you get upset. So, what do you really want?

                      This life is short and tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Eternity is, well for eternity. Clearly many need a different perspective.

                        Still have not found a clear reason to why the left wing is in support of these movements. I find the relationship precarious, since both ideologies are vastly different. For instance, remember Vittorio Arrigoni? He was a Italian activist in Palestine who got kidnapped by Salafist and murdered on camera. Here is a prime example of how the left actively demonstrates to help a foe. If one understands the entomology of Islam, we discover that the left's love for freedom is incomparable to the strict observance of a structured society. In this specific case, Arrigoni was kidnapped by Salafist, my guess because he was a infidel boosting for Palestinian nationalism. Extreme groups such as ISIS, IJ, ect do not advocate nationalism as its putting the idea of man before Allah, which seeks a unified caliphate. Which btw why Hamas can't make nice with the PA or Israel.

                        ​But I will never ever understand supporting a group that has no problem honor killing you for being an infidel.

                          Because internationalism is a major component of the Radical Left, which built its political dogma over rejection of any form of imperialism - which, kinda naturally, led them with an inferiority complex with any kind of social movement or rebellion originating from Third World countries, especially former colonies. The RL is incapable of denouncing ISIS if it isn't by painting it as the byproduct of Western imperialism, it is incapable of denouncing Islamism as a political movement because they can't stand the very thought of sounding racist, and it is incapable of denouncing "revoloutionary" violence because it is an integral part of their psyche, and of their dogma : in their mind revolutionary anti-capitalistic violence is just per se, hihly desirable as it will be the only way to break free of the current society's chains, and will be limited to real culprits anyway.

                          This being said, the radical left is just one of many political movements who think along the exact same line : what happens to my fellow, like-minded people is heinous crime, what happens in defense of them is, well, just legitimate defense and therefore doesn't count. That is part of our being selfish bastards, be that the act of God or Mother Nature.

                            The problem socialist/communist thinking has with political Islam is, that it shouldn't exist.
                            Marxism emerged in a time when religion, while more common than today, was largely seen as a thing of the past.
                            "Opium for the masses", so Religion was just seen as a tool, not as a motivating force in itself.
                            So while Marxists can recognize capitalists using religion as a tool to keep the masses in line, the idea of a dynamic political religious movement is so utterly alien to marxist thought and historical materialism that it simply cannot exist, so it has to be explained away with the standard explanations.
                            Which is not suprising in itself as political Islam arguably only came to be in the mid 20s with the Emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, so arguably political Islam is a younger ideology than Marxism.
