Islam At the Crossroads: War or Peace?

Islam stands at a crossroads. The Islamic State presents Muslims with an opportunity to put Islam on a peaceful footing, denounce Jihad, establishing the long awaited Reformation. The trend however is going the other way. Silent consent. They have no choice.

Sep 2, 2014: Brother Rachid addresses President Obama about the Islamic State and Islam; he explains how IS is imitating the prophet Muhammed in every detail. The Islamic State represents Islam.

Amidst all the carnage caused by Al Qaeda and Islamic State related terrorist groups, Muslims actually have the unique opportunity to cleanse their religion of all the connotations and associations with violence and cruelty. All they have to do is denounce the Islamic State and forsake the legitimacy of Jihad as a path to further the causes of the world Caliphate. The shoe however appears to be on the other foot.

Supported by the usual Western apologists a movement has sprung up to ideologically separate Islam from the epithet Islamic (as in Islamic State), enabling them to distance themselves from IS without having to denounce their methods and aims.

What we shall see is that -- apart from the countries existentially threatened by IS, i.e. Iraq, Syria, Iran and the Gulf states -- no Muslim country will actively come out against the Caliphate. This is because IS is entirely consistent with Islam and the teachings of Mohammed, and every Muslim in the world knows this.

Furthermore, any change to the doctrine is forbidden. This is why nothing will change and the Jihad on the Dar Al Harb will continue unabated until we realise there is no other option but to root out the masters of terror.
