This is a timely reminder what our democratic representatives who are supposed to be doing the will of the people are willing upon the people exactly what they don't want: Islam.
Semitic Monotheism - it is so strange I cannot believe anybody would take it seriously
except millions are deluded - I mean this Middle Eastern mental aberration how does it capture millions globally? What is wrong with these people? I am stuffed if I know
Interesting article. In essence, if I interpret correctly, it means as long as multiculturalist philosophy / politics dominate, Islamification will continue unabated. It's hard to argue with the thorough referencing.
What happens next? It seems obvious that in a system where "all cultures are good" vs "only our dominating culture is good", there is risk for the second winning. Which would be bad.
But can liberals give up their multiculturalism, which many times seems knee-jerk, vilification of "white christian male heterosexual" for something more nuanced, thoughtful, and effective at embracing humanitarian goals without being (or seeming) ethnocentric? In the article, the idea of Western prosperiy and education as a way to "convert" or retain young Muslims, seems ineffective. The article also seems, to me, to argue that neoliberalism (Im not sophisticated about academic political terminology - maybe Im wrong) is a major cause of the problem. If we cant and dont accept the Right Wing, with their many expressed knee-jerk bigotries and embracing of scapegoating and exclusion, but we also cant and dont accept the left wing with their political correctness, in-fighting, and potentially self-immolating politics, whee does that lead us. Is there a third or fourth or fifth way?
the fifth most definiely --- no more --isms of any sort: political ideological identity obsessions and minority exceptionalism---we are in this together so why get divided over whatever some politicians gets fevered up pushing an agenda we did not choose---
