The terrorist acts of 9-11…and since then, around the globe…have made most people in the West aware of the term Jihad. The attacks of 9-11…and the 25,500+ deadly Jihad attacks since 9-11…are what’s considered Hard Jihad. These are sudden, violent and lethal attacks that are meant to terrorize a people/nation into submission to Islam (which, BTW, is what Islam means,to submit).
BUT there’s a more pernicious form, a non-violent form, of Jihad that is more of a threat to freedom than the kind that wakes you up to danger like a fire alarm…and it’s already rooting itself in our midst…
The non-violent form of Jihad, or Soft Jihad, utilizes:
— Lies, revisionist history/indoctrination (as in the case of school textbooks).
— Lawfare — (The Lawfare Project) which signifies “‘the use of the law as a weapon of war’ or, more specifically, the abuse of Western laws and judicial systems to achieve strategic military or political ends.”
— Islamophobia – a faux term created by Islamists to verbally whip infidels into line. Dissected the term means: fear of Islam based upon ignorance…AND this weapon is drawn ANY time someone reveals the TRUE nature of the ideology of Islam. It’s used as an assassin’s blade to slay the character of the messenger…much like the term racist.
— Cultural Marxism, which denies the biological reality of gender and race and argues that gender and race are “social constructs”. YET, Cultural Marxists support the race-based identity politics of non-whites. This is one of the weapons used against the West, despite the fact that Islam can be found in every culture, nation and in every skin hue on the globe…including Caucasian.
Most Americans (and our cousin across the Pond) are understandably too busy working and taking care of our families to realize the designs these tyrants have on our way of life. And tragically, we are saddled with politicians who are too busy plotting their next political victory, to even care about the constituents they are paid to serve …and so they acquiesce to this demographic for future votes.
Soft Jihad can be compared to the boiling frog (“The Mechanisms of the Slippery Slope“)…a great caveat for people to be aware of the most incremental change, which if gone unexamined will cause eventual suffering of undesirable consequences.
Islam’s Soft Jihad is not a friend of free people. And the only way to prevent it from gaining victory over YOUR freedoms is to push back with the truth about this ideology, bullying its way across freedom…like any other fascist dogma.
Will it take work? Maintaining any virtue does. Let’s hope we’re all up to the task, to do our part…because, as John Adams once said:
“Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.”
Shalom through strength…
