Saving Western Civilization Demands that We Study Islam
~ Presenting a simple resource guide to gain a clear understanding of the REAL Islam

Why do Westerners need to study Islam? The answer is very simple.
If Islam were “just a religion,” studying it would not be necessary unless one simply wanted to learn about the religion.
However, Islam is not just a religion. It is also a political ideology that when put into practice results in loss of freedom, violence, and ultimately mass slavery of its populations. To many, this statement may seem “intolerant.” However, those who study Islam in depth, without apology for Islam, and those who study Islam’s historical record, will indeed find that Islam poses an existential threat to free civilizations.
This does not mean that “Muslims are bad.” That would be bigotry, because one must assess a person based on his or her character, heart, and actions, not based on race, color, or creed. Just to clarify, Muslims come from all races, and thus expressing discontent with Islam is not “racist.” It is also not “Islamophobic,” because it is not an “irrational fear” to be concerned about the loss of freedom under totalitarian ideologies. Islamophobic is a nonsense (but very clever) word, coined by Islamists to shut down criticism of Islam by impugning the mental state of those discussing it.
Many Muslims don’t study their own doctrines. Others ignore their doctrine, and just try to lead good lives. Many feel trapped by Islam, and in fact are Islam’s first victims—especially among women. Some support Islam’s goals, but don’t take direct action. At the end of this essay, there is a link to a fourteen minute video called By the Numbers, which reports on what Muslims around the world actually believe.
Thus, because of Islam’s political ideology, I believe that Westerners must study Islam. If we do not, preserving Western civilization with all of its freedoms and values will be very difficult.
I can say, based on my own experiences a number of years ago, and then later, as I independently studied Islam, based on the resources of many experts as well as the source texts, that the Western world suffers from vast ignorance about Islam.
I was in that category of ignorance.
If one doesn’t embark on at least an introductory study of these things, but instead only relies on Islamists or Islamapologists to tell them “the scoop,” they will be deceived. In this case, for the Western world as a whole, ignorance most certainly will be fatal.
Yet, too many Westerners have bought into Islamic propaganda that Islam is a religion of peace and that anyone who thinks otherwise is an Islamophobe.
Here’s an article by Raymond Ibrahim, an expert on Islam, that directly refutes the Islamapologists’ contention that Islam is a religion of peace:
