Before I start this, I’d ask you go read this outstanding article by Graeme Wood in this month’s Atlantic Magazine- Link HERE.
Mr. Wood has obviously done a LOT of quality research, and has nailed down many of the salient points in this article. The truth is, they ARE Islamic and they ARE trying to enforce Sharia world-wide, that is their goal, a Caliphate is just the start.
Sadly, many organizations/institutions/governments have failed to recognize the depths that ISIS is willing to go to actually make that happen.
This map has been in various articles, and one thing this points out is…
ISIS does have, under the Mohammedan version of Islam, a Caliphate… That is the first step.
But lets take a closer look at the map… Look at the area in black versus the areas in grey- Controlled areas are very small and string like, and trace the major highways in Iraq and Syria. The support zones are much larger, and are in a lot of places nothing more than open desert, and in those areas there is no permanent presence. This makes one wonder how much enforcement of ‘pure’ Sharia is occurring there.
But these two quotes really caught my eye…
But Zarqawi and the state he spawned take the position that many other acts can remove a Muslim from Islam. These include, in certain cases, selling alcohol or drugs, wearing Western clothes or shaving one’s beard, voting in an election—even for a Muslim candidate.
So too are the heads of state of every Muslim country, who have elevated man-made law above Sharia by running for office or enforcing laws not made by God.
Now the interesting question is this; conjecture is that Obama is muslim. If so, according to the two quotes above, he is apostate even if he is a muslim. The penalty for apostate is beheading… So???
One can only wonder if this is why he keeps tap dancing around the radical Islam statement, trying to find a way to ingratiate himself back into the faith…
Especially in light of the latest statements out of the administration even after ISIS has called for attacks on the Mall of the Americas- DHS came out with an intelligence assessment circulated this month focuses on the threat of right-wing sovereign citizen extremist groups in the U.S. Full article HERE.
Really??? Are we down to that again?
