Jihad and the "Reconciliation" with Islamic Supremacism (Part Two of Two)

Jeffrey Imm

3. The European-Left Bandwagon of Surrender to Taliban

Such calls for "reconciliation" with the Islamic supremacist Taliban organization have also been recently promoted by leaders in the United Nations, UK, France, Denmark, by political commentators in the UK and European press, and by left-wing commentators in the United States.

A primary source of the surrender bandwagon has come from "our ally" the United Kingdom over the past several years, as the UK has an aggressive policy in "counter-radicalization" and "regionalization" of Jihadist threats that refuses to recognize Islamic supremacism. UK Security Minister West, senior UK law enforcement, and government individuals have called for talks with Al-Qaeda. So it should be little surprise that there would be a push for negotiations with the Taliban from the United Kingdom.

Muslim Group Condemns LBP “Censorship”

By Kris Graft

"AIFD stands against any form of censorship in the marketplace of ideas whether imposed by government or by corporations intimidated by the response of militants or those with an inappropriately sensitive level of political correctness."

 Last week, Sony delayed one of the biggest games of the year when it recalled Media Molecule-developed LittleBigPlanet on fear that in-game music that contained words from the Koran would incite anger among Muslim gamers.

Jihad and the ‘Reconciliation’ with Islamic Supremacism (Part One of Two)

Jeffrey Imm

American military leaders are calling for talks with the Islamic supremacist Taliban in Afghanistan, as part of some type of political "reconciliation" with Islamic supremacists in Afghanistan to promote "peace." Such military calls for "reconciliation" with Islamic supremacists in global theaters of war complement the increasing calls for "engagement" with Islamic supremacists by individuals in the counterterrorism and foreign policy communities. Both groups use terms that sound appealing to an innately peace-loving America. However, such efforts at "reconciliation" and "engagement" are ultimately calls for surrender in the war of ideas against Islamic supremacists – by legitimizing the infiltration and influence of Islamic supremacists in dealing with Jihad.

More dangerously, such calls for "reconciliation" and "engagement" fail to grasp that as Islamic supremacists gain more legitimacy, they will gain more influence and members. By failing to confront the ideology of Islamic supremacism and therefore empowering it, efforts by advocates of "reconciliation" and "engagement" will help Islamic supremacist organizations grow. Jihad is based on Islamic supremacism and views America as a natural obstacle to their goals for a global Islamic caliphate. Therefore, such efforts at "reconciliation" and "engagement" will ultimately help to grow more Jihadists for future attacks on America. Instead of bringing "peace" and defending America, the sponsors of "reconciliation" and "engagement" are going to help the Islamic supremacist enemy grow stronger by proving the Jihadist argument of America's "weakness" in defending its values.
