The Decline and Fall of Islam

I saw a picture of a Muslim woman holding a sign protesting the "Innocence of Muslims" movie. The sign said "1.5 Billion Muslims stand with the prophet." Well, now they have falling demographics. So, their numbers have already peaked. With their collapsing numbers, this means their chances of spreading Islam by out-breeding the rest of the world are going to fail. With this not working for them, what is their fall back plan? I mean, Muslim nations are the most backwards nations in the world. So, the Islamic world is going to have to change or die-and they have staked their existence upon resistance to change. Hence, the Islamic civilization will die. Once America becomes energy independent-which will happen very soon-Muslims will no longer have oil power. So, suddenly decline will hit them like a ton of bricks. In reality, the Islamic world has been in decline since 1492. In the 1940s, suddenly, the Islamic world had vast sources of wealth with their black gold. The Saudi used it to spread fanaticism. With vast riches from oil, they have fooled themselves into believing that Islam is the world's "manifest destiny." But in reality, the more these people turn to extremism, the more misery and suffering they are going to bring upon themselves. Islam is not the answer. Muslims are going to learn this hard fact through a lot of pain that they are bringing upon themselves-through their failed culture. It is really sad to see the Egyptians and others vote in Muslim Brotherhood governments-they are voting for war, poverty, and suffering-which is all these regimes have to offer. Hopefully, after an economic collapse and seeing that these extremist don't have the answer the people will moderate. This was about to happen in Gaza-but then the Turks intervened-and what they are really doing is prolonging the peoples' agony. If it wasn't for the Turks, the Gazans would have gotten rid of Hamas, moderated and began negotiations of peace with the Israelis. But the outside forces keep the Gazans from positive change. So, what are the Saudis going to do when they start running out of money? I suspect they will try to hold on power at all costs. These are NOT benevolent dictators. Once they go broke, they will stop giving money to radical Muslim organizations and put all the money into maintaining power-or escaping with what remains of the wealth. All this terrorism is very expensive. Once the petro-dollars dry up-a lot of this violence will stop. However, then the people will get desperate. They pinned all their hopes on radical Islam-and they will not only be no better for it-they will be the worse! All the violence and what will they get for it-poverty, backwardness, and economic stagnation. They will have brought it all upon themselves!

After writing this I discovered similar conclusions written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, "As the latest wave of indignation sweeps across the Muslim world, we should not be despondent. Yes, this is a setback for the Arab Spring. Yes, it is bloody, dangerous, and chaotic on the streets. Yes, innocent people are dying and their governments are powerless. But this too shall pass. Utopian ideologies have a short lifespan. Some are bloodier than others. As long as Islamists were able to market their philosophy as the only alternative to dictatorship and foreign meddling, they were attractive to an oppressed polity. But with their election to office they will be subjected to the test of government. It is clear, as we saw in Iran in 2009 and elsewhere, that if the philosophy of the Islamists is fully and forcefully implemented, those who elected them will end up disillusioned. The governments will begin to fail as soon as they set about implementing their philosophy: strip women of their rights; murder homosexuals; constrain the freedoms of conscience and religion of non-Muslims; hunt down dissidents; persecute religious minorities; pick fights with foreign powers, even powers, such as the U.S., that offered them friendship. The Islamists will curtail the freedoms of those who elected them and fail to improve their economic conditions. After the disillusion and bitterness will come a painful lesson: that it is foolish to derive laws for human affairs from gods and prophets. Just like the Iranian people have begun to, the Egyptians, Tunisians, Libyans, and perhaps Syrians and others will come to this realization. In one or two or three decades we will see the masses in these countries take to the streets—and perhaps call for American help—to liberate them from the governments they elected. This process will be faster in some places than others, but in all of them it will be bloody and painful. If we take the long view, America and other Western countries can help make this happen in the same way we helped bring about the demise of the former Soviet Union. We must be patient. America needs to empower those individuals and groups who are already disenchanted with political Islam by helping find and develop an alternative. At the heart of that alternative are the ideals of the rule of law and freedom of thought, worship, and expression. For these values there can and should be no apologies, no groveling, no hesitation." This quote is from "Muslim Rage & The Last Gasp of Islamic Hate" in Newsweek, September 17, 2012. It looks like she is coming to a similar conclusion that I have. I was inspired by "How Civilizations Die (…and why Islam is dying too)" by David Goldman. This means that I will most likely live to see the fall of Islam. But, I think it will be a long bloody process-but like her I think it will take about 10-25 years and probably starting now. Regarding Ali's comment about "gods and prophets"-it is true when you are dealing with false gods and false prophets-as we are here.

Once Islam has collapsed, we will be able at last to have an honest conversation about it-and all the horrific things that they have done to Christians and non-Muslims for the past 1400 years. (Goldman says, "An educated twenty-five year old Iranian woman today probably grew up in a family of six or seven children, but will bear only one child." As of 2010, Iran's fertility rate stands at 1.7 children per woman. Decadence has enveloped the nation; drug use is rampant, and a sizable portion of the women work willingly as prostitutes. Paradoxically, this makes the Islamic world more dangerous, at least in the short term: "For in their despair, radical Muslims who can already taste the ruin of their culture believe that they have nothing to lose.") Millions have perished at the hands of Islamists for centuries. In the 20th century-over a million Armenians/Assyrians/Greeks were killed by Muslims in Turkey and three million Sudanese Christians in the Sudan. In Islam's last remaining decades, it is possible that millions more may die-but this time it could be millions of Muslims-killed by other Muslims and/or by war that Muslims have provoked through radicalism. So is it time for an epithet? "Islam: 610 A.D.-2042 A.D."

Ali has proven that it is in America's national interests to discard political correctness and begin implementing a strategy to save the Muslims and the world from the suffering that Islamism has brought, is bringing and will bring. We need to stop demonizing Western Civilization and start being honest about the historic and present evils of Islamic "civilization"-if that is what you want to call it. It is time for the Robert Spencer/Allen West approach. Unfortunately, the politically correct pseudo-Academic morons from the Ivy League Liberal extremist schools will oppose the Ali strategy tooth and nail-which will lead to more westerners and Muslims getting killed. Islam is going to fall. What we should be thinking is how we can minimize human suffering and death during the process.

When I was in Syria in 2001, a week before 9-11, I had a vision of the coming conflict and I felt that God told me that a war would soon begin in which Islam would end but at the end of it, although triumphant, America would only be a shadow of its former self. America would have a pyrrhic victory but Islam would be no more. Islam's fatal flaw is that it isn't a religion-it is a theocratic political system. That will be its demise.
