When the U. S. President, the Senate Majority Leader, the Speaker of the House, military leaders, and other so-called security experts habitually reinforce the false claims of enemies, one has to question the reputations they enjoy for strategic thinking. The most striking example is the way an obvious Perversion of Islam (PoI) is routinely characterized within the news media as “The Islamic State.” The current crop of journalists have demonstrated they are more than willing to give criminals the preferred identity, and the exaggerated sense of self importance they crave.
In contrast to the love that most latter day Muslims have demonstrated for this planet’s progress towards light and life, the only thing the PoI fanatics have to offer the world is an orgy of darkness and death.
These retardant forces do not represent an Islamic state any more than the Ku Klux Klan represents mainstream Christendom. Still, the name “Islamic State” has high recruitment value in targeting the most simplistic of our millennials. This makes Obama, Boehner, McConnell, Brennan, McCain, the Joint Chiefs, Blitzer, and Pelley among the most effective recruiters a jihad could have.
It has become clear that news anchors and directors are now far more concerned about productizing events than they are about journalistic integrity. Their news programs feature “strategic thinkers” that display such abysmal ignorance about the fundamentals of strategy, our information whirlpool has taken on the distinct smell of a dis-information cesspool.
In fact, the acronyms IS and ISIS have always been misnomers, and the notion of a unified Islamic state based upon a stasis in evolution is pure fantasy. While our most respected networks and newspapers are quick to insert disclaimers into presentations that are contrary to their corporate values, they have shown no such “discipline” with respect to self-deceived jihadists. Corporate values have not prevented them from blurring the line between actuals and potentials when they report on the aspirations of morally retarded and intellectually stunted jihadists.
The true Muslim will always remember what Allah says:
“Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth has been made clear from error. Whoever rejects false worship and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks. And Allah hears and knows all things.” [Sûrah al-Baqarah: 256]
Those displaying an animalistic addiction to violent extremes will always see the syringe as half empty. And then, there are those called the Children of God of whom it has been said: “Happy are the Peacemakers.” Throughout the panoramic of a great humanity, our philosophical and religious persuasions have amazing similarities. Just consider the cultural adaptations of the Golden Rule and, specifically, what Muhammad had to say along those lines.
