What happened in Pakistan on the first day of the year is no different from what’s been happening: routine killings by Islamic terrorists. BBC reports: “At least 88 people have been killed by a suicide bomb attack at a volleyball court”, which it says brings up the last three months’ total death toll of Islamic terrorism to around 600. Of course the BBC being what it is – biased – identifies the criminals as militants instead of Islamic terrorists. Never mind who denies Islamic terrorism – even this – and never mind how vociferous the denial. But Samuel Huntington’s observation is being corroborated daily, across the world. He wrote, “Islam‘s borders are bloody and so are its innards. The fundamental problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilisation whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power.” (Ref. The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of the World Order.)
Like the rest of the world, India is also a victim of Islamic terrorism. In fact, India draws exceptional fire from Islam primarily because India is a shining example of Islam’s failure to conquer the idol-worshiping kafirs. But for real bloodshed, one has to look at Pakistan which should be referred to as Pakistan, TC ( something like Washington, D.C.), short form for “Pakistan, Terror Central.” Pakistan is TC because it not only manufactures the greatest amounts of Islamic terrorism, but aside from exporting Islamic terrorism (much of it to India), its domestic consumption of Islamic terrorism is quite significant. Yes, India also consumes some of its home-grown Islamic terrorism but because Pakistan is more Islamic (100 percent) than India (around 20 percent), Pakistan suffers more from Islamic terrorism.
Islam’s borders, as Huntington wrote, are bloody. Mark Steyn writes (Dec 29th 2009Wall Street Journal): “The Muslim faith, whatever its merits for the believers, is a problematic business for the rest of us. There are many trouble spots around the world, but as a general rule, it’s easy to make an educated guess at one of the participants: Muslims vs. Jews in “Palestine,” Muslims vs. Hindus in Kashmir, Muslims vs. Christians in Africa, Muslims vs. Buddhists in Thailand, Muslims vs. Russians in the Caucasus, Muslims vs. backpacking tourists in Bali. Like the environmentalists, these guys think globally but act locally.“
Pakistan is an Islamic state and its population is nearly 100 percent Muslim. Yet the bloodshed. That’s what Huntington meant when he wrote about Islam’s bloody innards. Shias killing Sunnis and vice versa. Half the Islamic population (females) are oppressed by the other half (males) – and this has religious sanction.
The world is pretty rapidly descending into a hell brought on about by an ideology. Humanity had the guts to oppose Nazism and communism. It appears to have lost the appetite to survive. The historian Arnold Toynbee noted that “civilizations die from suicide, not murder.” I see that happening to the Indian civilization in front my very eyes. Every day I note the main stream media glorifying the ideology that has wreaked havoc on the Indian civilization for centuries. Europe is giving up on the enlightenment that it gained at great cost without a struggle – barring the odd little symbolic moves to ban scarfs or the construction of new minarets.
It is still not too late. We should look at what’s happening in Islamic states such as Pakistan TC, and note that even if the whole world were to become Islamic, the wholesale murder and terrorism will not stop. It will only intensify till the collapse of human civilization. We have to fight back. We have to save ourselves from The Religion of Peace. There is no other option.
