Jihadists are seeking destruction of secular world

SYRIAN-CIVIL-WAR-07

According to The Australian, the success of the jihadist group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham in creating a proto-Islamic state in Iraq, confirms an unmistakable message — Islam, as it is conceived by a quarter of the world’s population, seeks the destruction of the secular world and the imposition of Islamic rule.

To believe otherwise, such as that recent events are the fault of the West arising from a botched invasion of Iraq, is thoroughly delusional.

In broad terms, we can respond in one of two ways. The first option, another military intervention, would again prove a waste of blood and treasure. For the social and cultural destiny of Islam lies in totalitarian or authoritarian religiosity and no volume of drone strikes or boots on the ground can turn this around.

In 100 years or so, Islam may embrace the values of the Enlightenment and accept the separation of church and state. But perhaps Islam never will.

The ISIS is a terror organisation comprised of murderous fanatics from a number of Arabic nations, as well as Iraqi Sunni extremists. It is not at all representative of the majority of the Iraqi Sunni population who, contrary to a common belief in the West, do not have a history of animosity towards their Shiite countrymen.

Please let’s not talk about civil war; call the conflict for what it is a battle by a democratically elected government (albeit a poorly performing one) against ruthless al-Qa’ida offshoot terrorists who regard all Shiites as apostates to be slaughtered at will, in line with some warped interpretation of the Koran.
