The more I read about Islam, the more concerned I have become about its threat to democracies everywhere. I truly understand how it is that the people in Islamic nations cannot question Islam for fear of death, but I cannot for the life of me see how an educated person can fall victim to this falsehood. I thank Anwar Shaikh for my awakening to Islam being an imperialistic doctrine, as opposed to a religion.

“Freedom Is Not Free,” and it takes vigilance to keep it free. In the past, I spent many hours contacting American Congressmen to get our country off dependence on Middle Eastern oil. Fortunately, America is now a major exporter of oil and gas.

There is no such thing as “Islam” one can reform and find a way to make moderate. There are numerous Islams. One and all are extreme and not in the least amenable to change. Remember that Islam claims it is the perfect eternal faith for mankind. Splits have occurred and will continue to occur in Islam. Yet a Reformation-style change has not happened in nearly 1400 years, and is not going to happen. Islam is carved in granite just the way it is. No change. Allah’s book is sealed.

There are, of course, not a few Muslims who are moderate in the way they practice their faith. These people, for the most part, are cultural Muslims. They don’t practice Islam the way it is mandated. They pick and choose. Therefore, “moderate Islam” is like being moderately pregnant. It is not possible. The only way to deal with the menace of real Islam, the jihadist variety, is to fully dismantle it.

Beginning with the Constitution’s adoption, America has been a republic. But the dominant trend over the last two centuries has been to call it a democracy. A woman asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government the Constitution was bringing into existence. Franklin replied, “A republic if you can keep it.” Democracy is the guardian of our liberty. Embedded in a democracy are provisions that can make it implode from within. Democracy also has its own guardian: a resolutely vigilant, proactive, and ethical citizenry.

What can be done? Is there a way of resisting and reversing the imminent coming Islamic assault on our most cherished right of liberty?

Here are some suggestions:

  • Become an active worker for liberty, instead of a passive, non-caring, devil-may-care nihilist. Many Europeans are already paying the price of non-caring complacency as Islam is rapidly gaining greater power, casting its suffocating pall on their lives.
  • Interact with Muslims in your locality and try to wean them away from Islam by pointing out how the Quran and the clergy are enslaving them in a defunct ideology of intolerance, backwardness, and death.
  • Use the political process, while it is still responsive to the demands and wishes of freedom-loving people, by supporting laws that guard freedom and reject those that infringe on liberty.
  • Actively support political candidates who are deeply committed to the tenets of freedom.
  • Run for office, any office. Encourage your friends and other liberty advocates to pitch in and help in any way they can.
  • Hold to account those politicians who sell themselves to Islamic advocacy groups and promote Islam. These for-hire politicians will do anything they can to keep their position, power, and benefits from the generous financial backing of Islamic groups.
  • Be an active educator by informing others about the creeping danger of Islam. Islam is seriously eroding the very foundation of liberty by various means. Powerful moneyed Islamic organizations threaten anyone who dares to criticize Islam with ruinous lawsuits (CAIR).
  • Contribute small or large money to causes and individuals fighting to preserve liberty. As the old saying goes, freedom is not free.

In short, liberty is your most prized possession, and democracy is the shield that protects it. Yet this shield of democracy is vulnerable and needs to be repaired and strengthened on a regular basis. I am calling on you, the individual freedom-loving person, to play your part in defense of freedom; not only for your sake but also for mine and all others who cherish this precious blessing of life.
