Last week The Propagandist’s Editor Jonathon Narvey wrote, “In the question of whether Islam is at war with the West, The Propagandist has always taken a consistent line: No. A religion cannot be at war with anything. We are not fighting Islam.”read the rest at The Propagandist
In my first column for The Propagandist, I propose that Jonathon is incorrect.
Recently elected Congressman Allen West (R- Florida) pointed out that “The War on Terror” is a misnomer. Terror is a tactic, not an enemy. The analogy West used was that World War 2 was not a war on “Blitzkrieg,” it was a war against Nazis. West characterizes the current conflict as one with extremist Islam. I fear that Congressmen West’s characterization was too mild. Conservative Islam, which is the prevalent form of practiced Islam, is at war, not only with the west, but with liberal Muslims who seek change to their religion.
