That question appeared in my blog stats recently, and I thought it might be interesting to offer a few suggestions.
As I’ve noted before, “radical” Islam is normative Islam. One either follows the demands and teachings of Muhammad, the Koran, and the Hadith or one doesn’t.
Those demands and teachings are chocked full of violence, misogyny, and mayhem against anyone who would dare refuse to accept the “invitation” to convert to or obey the tenets of Islam.
There is no such thing as moderate or peaceful Islam, unless one is simply in abject rejection against the religion itself.
So, just how does a person, a city, a state, or country halt the growing cancer that is “radical” or normative Islam?
As with all cancers it first starts with acknowledgment that one has cancer. Denying its existence or presence in the human body is not going to help it get better.
Also, supposing that cancer can co-exist with the human body by somehow appeasing its existence will surely and only lead to certain death.
America, you and the world have Islamic cancer.
Second, there must be a diagnosis as to what stage the cancer has spread. That way the proper treatment may be administered leading to a cure.
Usually cancer diagnoses comes in four stages, with the last stage being terminal. Using that as a baseline, and taking into consideration what David Gaubatz wrote back in 2009 (Muslim Mafia) when he discussed the Five Stages of the Muslim Brotherhood takeover in America, I would speculate that America has Stage Three cancer.
Back then Gaubatz opined that the MB takeover had achieved a Phase III level, meaning that there was “Infiltration and Islamization of America’s political, social, economic, and education system, forming a shadow state within the state. Escalation of religious conversions to Islam. Manipulation of mass media, and sanitization of language offensive to Islam.”
In other words, Islam has spread beyond the mosque and family settings and is now affecting national policy which, in turn, is causing the host to suffer increasing community pain, suffering, and death.
Today, only four years later, the MB appears to have successfully progressed to Phase IV, which is “Openly hostile public confrontation over U.S. policies including rioting, and militant demands for special rights and accommodations for Muslims.”
Phase V is the “Final conflict and overthrow (jihad).”
The recent Boston bombings and the subsequent bureaucratic nonsense over food stamps, public assistance, and heavily subsidized education for the bombers, is a classic example of just how far Islam has come in turning the American system upside down.
So, America has cancer and it’s stage three. Now what? First, the good news: it’s not terminal—yet. Now, the bad news: it is going to be extremely painful to garner a cure and there is going to be all kinds of opposition, resistance, and strident accusations thrown around.
Countries like Britain, France, and Spain, et al, are all stage four Islamic cancer patients. Even America’s neighbor to the north, Canada, is teetering on the verge of passing from stage three to stage four.
Too many countries, though, have failed to do the proper self-examination concerning this cancer, and, sorry to say, it’s just a matter of time until they are history. The United States and Canada can learn from their neglect. The question is, will they?
A stage three remedy is going to require a complete revamping of the foundational worldview of all Americans, a heavy dose of common sense based on the fear of God as found in Scripture, and an excising of the cancer itself by cutting out the tumor.
The current foundational worldview of most Americans is predicated on relativism. Relativism breeds complacency and there is nothing that evil, such as “radical” Islam, loves more to help it breed than those who presuppose there is no such thing as absolute truth as demonstrated in right and wrong decision-making. That must change if America is to survive.
The only worldview that is objectively sustainable, as well as a supernatural antidote to the equally relative, but tyrannical form of “radical” Islam, is the Christian worldview.
Interestingly, most Americans claim to be Christians, even though they don’t think or live like one. Again, that must change, if America is to survive.
Common sense based in the fear of God found in Scripture is the next logical step up from having a Christian worldview. It simply means to wisely think God’s thoughts after him and then act accordingly.
If it is true that, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Prov. 1:7), and Americans want to know how to survive the cancerous onslaught that is “radical” Islam, then they better start finding out what God has to say about it, or they, too, will go the way of Europe.
Finally, the cancer must be excised. It must be cut out, in other words, or physically removed from the body.
A few years ago I proposed that Homeland Security begin profiling Muslims shortly after the underwear bomber tried to blow up a plane over Detroit. All kinds of cries accusing me of insensitivity of various kinds were the responses.
“You’re a bigot.” “You’re intolerant.” “You ought to be ashamed to call yourself a Christian.” “If that’s the kind of God you worship, I don’t want any part of it.” And so on and so forth.
Since that time America has experienced one terrorist act after another, the most recent being the Boston bombings. According to FBI reports, several planned attacks have been thwarted.
If America is going to excise the cancer, police and government officials are going to have to quit coddling the enemy, move into these hate-spewing mosques and militant camps that exist all across her land, and start arresting and deporting every Muslim sympathizer of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and any other organization (like CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, MPAC, OIC, MILF, MSA and the MAS, to name just a few) hostile to the nation of Israel and western values rooted in the Judeo-Christian ethic.
Also, every foreign student of Islamic persuasion will have one year to complete whatever studies they have embarked upon in American universities and colleges. Then they, too, will be deported for forced to leave. Other foreign Muslim students will be denied the privilege to study in America.
All government officials, like Keith Ellison of Minnesota, will be recalled and replaced by someone intent on upholding the Constitution of the United States, not subverting it with the subtle introduction of Shariah Law.
All Muslims serving in the military will be discharged, and those Muslims currently being held in custody, whether it be Nidal Hasan or those in Gitmo, will be expeditiously tried and executed.
Frankly, I think most Americans are fed up with how they have been catered to, given their crimes, and it’s time to do something about them.
Since our prison system is overflowing with those who have converted to “radical” Islam, they, depending on their crime, will also either be executed or deported to their Muslim country of choice. Moreover, they will be given the stern warning, if deported: Don’t come back or else.
Speaking of not coming back, America must secure its borders! No one should be coming across the border, especially to kill its citizens, uninvited or illegally.
The longer it remains negligent in protecting its borders, the sooner it will be that one of these Islamic “radicals” is going to sneak a nuke across and set it off in a major city. Then it will really be over except for the crying. But, it will be too late.
Now, bring on the hate mail, which I’m sure I’ll receive. How do I know? Because it’s happened before. But, if America really wants to deal with the “radical” Islamic cancer, these are just a few suggestions how.
It’s going to be painful. All kinds of contemptuous name-calling will occur which will be followed by death-threats and possibly even death itself. “Radical” Islam, though, will simply be rearing the same ugly head that it has raised before, going all the way back to Muhammad himself in the seventh century A.D.
Failure to admit that one has cancer, to diagnose its spread, and then offer the relevant treatment, regardless of how much it might hurt at first, will only lead to death: death of the nation, the state, the city, and the person.
America, you’ve been diagnosed with cancer. You know what stage it is. You now have a plan leading to a cure. What are you going to do about it?
My guess is probably nothing. Please prove me wrong.
