Islamic propaganda is hardly new. Islam has been presented to the West as peaceful and loving for decades, but it has always been and continues to be a false view of Islam. Ever since the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, and the sight of Palestinians and other Muslims celebrating the destruction of the World Trade Center and the damage to the Pentagon, Islamic apologists have had to take an even more aggressive effort by their well-oiled propaganda machine to continue to present Islam as a peaceful religion.
As well, out of either blind or willful ignorance, moderate and liberal Christians are more than happy to jump on the bandwagon, even to the point of Pastors inviting Muslim teachers to present a loving version of Islam to their flocks, and blame the violence on a few fringe radical groups. And their efforts are working. And this is unfortunate.
Islamic apologists are popping up all over the media from cable news to YouTube for the express purpose of explaining suicide-bombers who detonate their explosices in crowded marketplaces, as well as all the other innumerable horrific acts committed under the banner of Islam, as not being the “true spirit of Islam”. All the while, Muslims continue to hoist their religious banner in justification of their crimes, proudly proclaiming that they are acting in obedience to their faith. No, not all Muslims are terrorists who go to sleep at night and wake the next morning thinking of all the ways that they can rid the world of non-believers. But there are enough of them amongst the approximately 1.3 billion Muslims in the world that it should cause us more concern than we are warranting because like Christianity, Islam is a meme. It is a virus of the mind, a mental disease that is highly infectious and when you add ideologies that support acts of violence and doctrines that call for world domination, you end up with the physical manifestation of unconditional obedience to a twisted, barbaric philosophy that we know as terrorism.
Yes, September 11th, 2001 shocked the United States into realizing just how horrific the Islamist robots can be, but Americans, by and large, have grown indifferent since then, mainly because the continuing violence is happening in other places. The only reason the problem if Islam has been reignited surrounds the controversy of the Park51 Islamic Community Center that is planned for a site a couple blocks from where the World Trade Center once stood.
In spite of what the Islamic apologists are spouting at every available opportunity, Islam is not interested in the premise of freedom that the United States was founded upon. A true Muslim does not and cannot believe in freedom of choice. They are unconditionally submissive to the will and decree of their god, Allah, and as their holy book clearly stipulates, they are commanded to impose their archaic, ancient and inhumane theocracy on the whole of humanity and they absolutely will not stop until every human being on the face of the earth has been either converted, subjugated or annihilated. To believe anything else is just plain ignorance.
