Islamic Conquest: The Venus Flytrap Effect

Venus Fly Trap

The Venus Flytrap (or Dionaea muscipula) is beautiful to look at and has a sweet smelling nectar. Makes you want to get a little closer, a little more comfortable, right? But (humor me here), let's say you're the fly. Does your mind change at all? Or are you still gung-ho over crawling in to have a taste?

Given that we have the advantage of looking at the picture from an informed point of view and we know that the outcome would be certain death for the fly, we would have to answer as logically as possible : get out of dodge while you have the chance.                 
Now apply the same concept to Islamic Conquest in America. We know from history that since the time of Mohammed in 630 A.D., Islamic conquests have resulted in trophy mosque building and/or the conversion of non-Muslim places of worship to mosques. Take a look at Ka'aba, Umayyad mosque, Al-Aqsa mosque, great mosque of Gaza, Babri mosque, the list goes on and on with similar stories of conquest and self-crowning glory. The dome of the rock sits on Jewish holy ground. I found the great mosque of Cordoba interesting myself.      
Politicians, however, dodge this issue completely under the guise that Moderate Muslims are somehow victimized when anyone calls “foul” on terrorists. The problem with this is twofold.       
The first problem is Feisal Abdul Rauf. It would be passable if the guy himself were a Moderate Muslim, but he's not. On May 27, 2010 Rauf is quoted in an article saying that “The important issue is to establish the general fundamentals of Sharia that are required to govern. It is known that there are sets of standards that are accepted by [Muslim] scholars to organize the relationships between government and the governed.”           
Similarly, the Cordoba Initiative (the institute planning to build a mosque near Ground Zero and founded by Rauf in 2004) states that one of it's four principal program areas include a “Shariah Project” which “will enumerate the societal – as opposed to religious – obligations that Shariah requires of a nation governed according to Islamic principles.”

Second, terrorists do exist. Islamists terrorize. More often than not, pinpointing a terrorist organization or person working within the same parameters results in an argument unrelated to the matter at hand, that being the issue of Moderate Mulims. If pointing out potential terrorist activity only sparks that same tired debate over and over again, tell me, what does a torrorist look like, act like, believe in? Who can we call out on their actions? What exactly are we looking for? By stressing “religious freedom” to the extent that it interferes with basic American way of life, we essentially give permission to those who hate us to tear us down.

When is enough going to be enough? When are we going to stop being the flies and start doing the gardening and weed out the anti-American values that just don't belong? I encourage all free thinking people to start doing some research of their own. Fact-check everything you read. Learn what Islamic terms mean, like Jihad, Grand Jihad, Taqiyya and Sharia. Also, learn who the known terrorist groups are, such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, and Muslim Brotherhood. Don't get caught in the flytrap of “peace” speeches. It is known that many imams preach peace in English and terrorism in Arabic.
