Let’s not pretend we haven’t been at war with Islam for the past 1000 years though, right? Truth is the militant sections of Islam will always be attempting to terrorise the west, it’s the offspring of growing up in a literal warzone.
Can we wage war on a political ideology? You can try, but I’d imagine it’d just lead to more extremists. The change has to come from the Muslim community itself, I mean look what what happened last time we decided the Middle East needed some freedom.
Some of the tenants of Islam are just so backward and idiotic to any westerner, and what’s more shocking is the same people who fight for things like women’s rights and the such are the same people who staunchly defend Islam as if they are blind to the fact women are second class citizen in Islamic communities.
Leave the backward side of Islam alone (Arabian Pennisula), and let’s hope western Muslims create a freer, more palatable breed of Islam whilst they are over here. There’s no redemption or hope for those born and raised in Qatar let’s be real. Keep backward thinking Islam where it belongs, somewhere in the desert thousands of miles away from the free world.
