Aside from the President, most Americans recognize the dangers of radical Islam. But not as many recognize the dangers of Islam itself, or how close those dangers are to Western society.
As reported by Sky News,
A private Muslim school in Yorkshire is promoting an extreme form of Islam, claiming that Jews are engaged in a global conspiracy… Mufti Zubair Dudha, [the school’s] founder and head, is a respected cleric from the orthodox Deobandi sect which is thought to control half of all mosques and madrasas in the UK.
Leaflets and newsletters… say all mixed-sex institutions are evil, warn Muslims not to adopt British customs, ban the watching of TV, and tell women not to go out to work and to be fully covered before leaving the house.
In a section on jihad [Mr. Dudha] tells Muslims they should be prepared to “expend… even life” to create a world organised “according to Allah’s just order”.
Teaching children that women shouldn’t work or go out into public uncovered? TV is banned? Be willing to die to create a theocracy for Allah?
This isn’t a story about childhood indoctrination by ISIS in Syria or Turkey. This is mainstream Islamic teaching in the United Kingdom. English speaking, tea and crumpets, God save the Queen United Kingdom.
Ted Cruz was right when he said we have to acknowledge what we’re fighting. It’s time we discuss the fundamental teachings of Islam itself, because we’ll never beat an ideology we refuse to even recognize.
