INCITEMENT: Islam’s Crusade Against the West
Paul Erdman, Market Watch, 8/08/05 http://www.marketwatch.com/news/story.asp?guid=%7B6096CB7D%2D85B9%2D47D5%2DADD4%2DF4359DD2A891 What should be apparent to all is that we are not dealing with a few thousand religious renegades led by the likes of Osama bin Laden. We are facing the wrath, overt and covert, of a sizable percentage of the Islamic world — which totals over a billion people. To think of them in terms of some sort of radical Islamic cult, as most of us have been led to do, is to demonstrate ignorance of the Quran, which is to Islam what the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are to Judaism and Christianity. The Quran explicitly states that one of the prime missions of Islam is the elimination of infidels in a process defined as a jihad, or holy war. As the world is on the verge of perhaps finding out, the definition of “infidel” is not restricted to Jews and Christians but includes Muslims, in this case the House of Saud, who have allied themselves with the West and thus turned their backs on the “true believers” of the world of Islam. In the United States it has become politically incorrect in intellectual and political circles to even think in terms of a War between Civilizations. Yet that is precisely what we are talking about here. The Quran is the root source of the escalating Islam terrorism.
