A Jihadist is simply an honest Muslim. When you take the Quran, Hadith, and Sunnah seriously, you will be radicalized and become a Jihadist. Thankfully most Muslims don’t take these texts that seriously!
Estimates by researchers are that there are between 150 million to 300 million radicalized Muslims in the world who could commit terrorist acts. There are a further 500 million Muslims who are theologically conservative and give tacit approval for Jihadists. They support sharia law, dhimmitude for non-Muslims, so-called blasphemy laws (punishable by death) – for those who insult Mohammed, so-called apostasy laws (punishable by death) – for Muslims who convert to another religion, women treated as second class citizens, mandatory wearing of hijab, niqab, burka, etc. for women. Many donate to Jihadist groups, or they give material support in some other way.
So the vast majority of Muslims globally are either radicalized or hardliners who could potentially be radicalized. This destroys the politically correct narrative that Islam is a religion of peace (no other religion has as many acts of terrorism committed by its adherents, whether total number of attacks, or number of attacks as a percentage of the total number of adherents). And that the number of Jihadists and radicalized Muslims is relatively few.
It is also a verified fact that the greatest persecutor of Christians globally for the past 1,300 years has been Islam. Islam is also the greatest persecutor of Christians today, and accounts for the vast majority of Christians raped and murdered.
By any metric Islam is a fundamentally evil and Satanic belief system. It’s theology is more akin to a political ideology than one of religious underpinnings. It has a veneer of theology, the bulk of Islam’s holiest and most sacred texts (the Quran, the most respected Hadith, and the Sunnah), implore its adherents to be violent, misogynistic, and hateful towards non-Muslims.
Islam’s sacred texts directly command faithful Muslims to conquer the world for Islam, by the sword mind you, and establish a global caliphate. Jihad in service of this goal is commanded of every single Muslim.
It is clear that Muhammad, and then his successors, Caliph Abu Bakr, Caliph Umar, and Caliph Uthman all attacked the surrounding nations offensively for the purpose of spreading Islam. These were not as is claimed by the historical revisionists, defensive wars. They were offensive wars whose goal was to force the victims to submit to Islam or be “crushed.”https://myislam.dk/articles/en/richardson%20r15-islam-and-the-goal-of-world-domination.php
Ibn Khaldun, the famous 14th century Islamic historian and philosopher in his classic and most notable work, the Muqaddimah says of jihad:
In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the (Muslim) mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force. Therefore, the caliphate (spiritual), the royal (government and military) authority are united in Islam, so that the person in charge can devote the available strength to both of them at the same time.Ibn Khaldun, The Muqaddimah, trans. by Franz Rosenthal (New York: Pantheon Books Inc., 1958) Vol. 1:473
Here is an excellent article on the sacred texts of Islam established jihad and the command for global domination of the kafir (a non-Muslim person, aka infidel).
One has to only look at real Islamic history to see its lust for global domination and the conversion of all non-Muslims to Islam, and death to those that would resist. Islam was not only conducting offensive warfare in its first few centuries. As late as the 17th century, Islamic armies were trying desperately to conquer Western Europe. If not for the defensive wars led by the Christian powers then all of Europe would have fallen to Islam. And there wouldn’t have been a United States of America, certainly not as a Christian nation.
Most in the West have grown complacent and are oblivious to the dire threat Islam poses. Religious freedom is unheard of in Muslim majority nations, so is freedom of speech, freedom of the press, academic freedom to criticize Islam. The Trojan horse of Islam was imported into Western Europe (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, etc.) by naive socialist governments. This happened in the past 50 years. Islam could not conquer Western Europe militarily, but thanks to spineless and deceived politicians they may well succeed in conquering it through massive immigration and high birth rates. All they need is time.
We in America, and the rest of the West, that hasn’t succumbed to massive Muslim immigration must fight to keep Islam out of our countries. Studies have shown once a Muslim population reaches 5% in a country it will quickly advance to 10%. And when that happens it’s almost inevitable that given enough time, within a few generations Islam will be a sizeable minority and eventually it will establish itself as a majority. Much like a cancer virus, Islam must be prevented from gaining a foothold in the first place in Christian nations.
And while Muslim birth rates are soaring, the birth rates in most Western nations are now so low that they aren’t at replacement levels. Meaning more people are dying than are being born to Christians in the West. So the Christian population is not growing enough to sustain itself as the majority. In 1950 the Christian majority in America was over 90%, today. Today it is down to just 65%!
We who are Islam realists (not so-called Islamophobes, as some would say), who see the existential threat Islam poses to Christendom (the Islamic Middle East used to be the Christian Middle East before Muslims brutally conquered the Christian nations in strictly offensive warfare) are trying to warn the world to wake up before it’s too late. In the last century, we already saw the genocide of Christians by Muslims (the Ottoman Empire’s massacre of 1.5 million Armenian Christians). We must act before another genocide occurs. This jihad through birth rates and immigration is known as stealth jihad.
Islam is currently the world’s second largest religion, only Christianity has more adherents. But Islam is growing twice as fast as Christianity, due to mainly extremely high birth rates of Muslim women, and also conversion of people to Islam. In fact, Islam is now the world’s fastest growing religion.
Muslims can have many children, they can takeover cities, even countries, they can kill Christians, but we have the final victory. Every knee will bow before Jesus! The so-called Muslim Mahdi (Savior) is actually who we Christians know will be the Antichrist. Christ shall utterly destroy him, and all children of darkness. Every single Muslim will be defeated by Christ at His great and terrible Second Coming! They will burn in the Lake of Fire for eternity along with all the other unbelievers!
