An infidel interprets Islam
David Frankfurter
About the Author
 

The British PM, Tony Blair, made a significant foreign policy speech on Monday (November 13, 2006), at the London Lord Mayor's banquet.  He outlined his "whole Middle-East strategy".   After stating Israel/Palestine "is the core", Blair drew a direct line to Teheran.

 

"Iran is being confronted over its nuclear weapons ambitions... [T]hey are using the pressure points in the region to thwart us.  So they help the most extreme elements of Hamas in Palestine; Hizbollah in the Lebanon; Shia militia in Iraq.  That way, they put obstacles in the path to peace, paint us, as they did over the Israel/Lebanon conflict, as the aggressors, inflame the Arab street and create political turmoil in our democratic politics."

 

Blair's solution to the nuclear threat, global terror and and the Israel-Palestinian dispute is simple: appeal to moderate Islam.  His introduction was the base. "In this century, a new and unconventional enemy has appeared:  a global terrorism, based on a thoroughly warped misinterpretation of Islam, which is fanatical and deadly."

 

My question is this:  Where is this moderate Islam?  Why is an "infidel" explaining that global terrorism is a warped misinterpretation of Islam? Shouldn't it be Muslim's speaking for (not to mention protecting) their own religion?  Where are the masses of Muslims who are leading or at least joining the war on terror? And I don't mean lapsed or secular Muslims - I mean religious Muslims.

 

My studies of comparative religion in high school and the memory of the Muslims I met at university create a dissonance between what I thought was Islam, and what I see today.  On the other hand, the Islamist vision of dominating the world as the sole religion has been openly and clearly declared, and is being brought to implementation stage. It is not dissimilar to the vision of the Crusaders, which led to the pogroms of the Middle Ages.  Not too different to the Catholic vision that created the Inquisition.  And I guess that its political edge is parallel to the vision of the 1,000 year Reich.
