Do Most People Understand the Mindset of the Jihadists?

One reason I write about politics a lot on Scholar is that I feel there is a lot of information and a lot of ideas that need to be considered that are simply not available in the mainstream media due to their leftist agendas. As a result many voters and many political leaders don't have the perspective needed to solve this nation's problems--and, in many cases, the world's problems. There are many "solutions" that look good on paper or in the short term, but that would prove disasterous if carried out. And so I do my little bit to provide information and insight into truth and what is really going on out there in the world.

Today's feature is an article from The New Media Journal titled "Wake Up, America: Understand the Mind of the Jihadist" by David J. Jonsson. In his article, Mr. Jonsson explores the mindset of the Jihadist--what they are really after. He also discusses how we can counteract that--and why we need to. This is not about tolerance or intolerance--this is about human liberty. This is about protecting our agency, our will, our freedom.

Here is a quote from the beginning of the article:
The war on terror might be lost not on the streets of Baghdad but in the corridors of Congress. A divided America and Anti-Americanism serves our enemies well. Soon we may see a vote in Congress that says, "We can't stop the surge plan, but we don't support it." It is time for America to understand who the enemy is, the murderous ideology that is driving them and their strategy for success. This would be the Islamist's greatest fear.
It is important to understand that the goal of the Jihadists is – following in the footsteps of Muhammad to create the "Islamic kingdom of God on Earth." The primary goal is not primarily to conquer lands but to Islamize the world. The drive is to instill Islamic law (Shariah) into both Muslim society and the entire world, and ultimately to recreate society under their interpretation of the law. The strategy is to utilize the sword of Islam. The sword may include terrorism, but more importantly it is bringing together groups of people with a common hatred, which can cause the ultimate decline in will of the populous. This cabal has coalesced as the Leftist/Marxist – Islamist Alliance. As we will see pacifism, self-hatred, complacency and appeasement – deserve attention, equally important is the use of Islamic Finance to gradually make the West comfortable with accepting living with Shariah law.

The article is informative and contains links to further information. It is worth your while to read it carefully and think about it seriously. Human beings were not created to be oppressed and downtrodden.
