(Conservative tribune) The “war on terror” is more than just a catchy, Orwellian term designed to gin up support for big government surveillance and a crackdown on personal liberty.
In fact, the term is aptly descriptive of the cultural and ideological struggle between Western civilization and radical Islamic jihadists.
The overwhelming majority of terrorist attacks that have occurred since the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon have been carried out by those who subscribe to the radical Islamic ideology, which commands its followers to kill infidels, or non-believers.
This fact is starkly evident on a billboard that has popped up recently, which purports to show the number of attacks that have been carried out in the name of jihad since 9/11.
It is unknown exactly where this billboard is located.
With the prevalence and resurgence of radical Islamic terrorist groups during the Obama administration, that number will surely continue to rise.
Because of President Obama’s failed foreign policies, Al-Qaeda has emerged from the caves the U.S. drove them into a dozen years ago, and they now controls more territory than ever before, through a system of loose affiliations.
One of Al-Qaeda’s progeny, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, has created a fundamentalist Islamic Caliphate and is steadily launching attacks in all directions as they seek to expand their territory throughout the Middle East.
Added into the mix are the numerous attacks launched against Israel by the radical Islamic groups Hamas and Hezbollah, along with attacks against Christians and Jews in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood. Add in attacks carried out by Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, and many, many other terrorist groups around the world, and it becomes obvious who is really waging a “war of terror.”
As the sign says, it is not Islamophobia to point these facts out. It is Islamorealism.
It is time for Western society to realize that, like it or not, we are engaged in a cultural struggle with radical Islamic ideology, and any toleration of that ideology will result in “cultural suicide” for the West.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter if you are under no illusions about who the real enemy is in the war on terror.
