I’ve written dozens of articles and broadcast many podcasts on the topic of Islam. For those who have read and listened to mine and others, you can be sure you are far better informed on the subject than virtually all other non-Muslims throughout the world.
We’ve learned about the Five Pillars of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, Sharia, the Caliphate, the Mahdi (the Twelfth Imam) and jihad. We understand by listening to well-known Islamists such as Anjem Choudary that Muhammad had prophesized that Islam “will one day dominate the whole world, such as that Allah (SWT) showed him the east and the west and the authority of the Ummah (Muslims) was over the whole of it, i.e. over the whole world including the USA, Russia, China, India etc.” We know this is not idle propaganda – they really believe this to be true and are battling everyday to achieve it.
Islamists like Choudary preach that “Muslims must believe in and try to realize through their daw’ah (propagation of Islam) and through the establishment of the Khilafah (the Islamic State) whose foreign policy will be jihad to remove all obstacles in the way of the implementation of Islam (i.e. the sharia) everywhere – that a Muslim must not obey, submit or follow anyone or anything other than Allah in his life. This means that democracy is anathema to Islam…”
Knowing all these things, one can only conclude, by their own words, that Western democracy is utterly incompatible with Islam. Whether they are radical Islamists like ISIS and al-Qaeda, who attempt to conquer by force, or supposedly non-violent groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Hizb-ut Tahrir, who seek to conquer the West by way of Civilization Jihad, the end is still the same – the replacement of democracy and republicanism with theocracy. read more
