Presently, fanatical Islamists are lashing out with mad fury. The “infidel” world has been complicit in the surge of Islamism through its mistakes, complacency, and greed.

Some academics even engage in willful misinformation and deception when it suits them. Terms such as “Political Islam,” or “Radical Islam,” for instance, are contributions of our intellengtsia. These terms do not even exist in the native parlance of Islam itself, simply because they are redundant.

Even a cursory study of Islam and its charter—the Quran—will clearly reveal that it is a radical political movement. It is the socialist leftists and paid-for-media and politicians who sanitize Islam and misguide the populace by saying that the “real Islam” constitutes the main body of the religion; and, that this main body is non-political and moderate.
