Grownups - well, those who actually think without the assistance of the Left in Hollywood or the leftist media - have wishes, and/or hopes at this time of year. Maybe for the health and well-being of their family, or a change of living arrangements, or an alternate mode of transportation... or perhaps a gift card for some luxury we can't normally afford. And that's fine... at least you're not asking me to pay for your safe space where you can clutch your participation trophy.
But I actually have a wish for something that will make the Left's safety pins explode off their diapers: I'd like to see a world without Islam.
Now, I didn't say a world without Muslims; most Muslims are either secular, agree with the actions of jihadists or are afraid to oppose them. Not all Muslims are the problem.
But... the ideology of Islam is the problem.
It's based upon the Quran (supposed words of Allah to Mohammed his prophet) and the Hadiths (the ways of Mohammed, Allah's prophet). Those who follow these books and precepts devoutly (e.g. ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Shabaab, etc.) are a problem to anyone who desires free will, democracy and wants to remain that way.
Everything about this ideology, from its inception, is corrupt. Here are some of the facts (note to snowflakes: take 6 to 12 easy, natural breaths, with a small paper bag held over your mouth and nose, before reading below):
• Muhammad, the founder and self-proclaimed prophet of Islam, was a bloodthirsty conqueror
• Muhammad and his followers robbed, captured and killed to support their 'religion'
• Quran 33:21 says that Muhammad is the excellent example for Muslims to imitate
• The Quran, Islam's holy book, exhorts Muslims to commit violence against/ kill unbelievers (Quran 9:5) who refuse to accept Allah
• Quran commands Muslims to fight against "People of the Book" - Jews and Christians - and subjugate them (Quran 9:5)
• Quran supports suicide bombings (Quran 9:111)
• Islam has great disdain for women, seeing them as filth, whores and chattel (suras 2:222, 223; 4:43; 4:24; 4:25; 5:6; 23:5,6; 33:52; 24:34; 70:29-30, 35)
• Islam teaches that homosexuality is punishable by death (Quran 7:80-84) (suras 15:74, 27:58 and 29:40)
• Jihad is not an inner, peaceful struggle, it is the duty of every Muslim - "The theology of jihad denies the unbeliever equality of rights and dignity"
And this just scratches the surface of this hydrophobia-producing creed that loathes anyone who won't join its ranks. There's not one factor about this autocratic, demonic dogma that doesn't find its joy in bringing destruction and death to all who dissent.
OK, since it's true we can't eliminate an idea like Islam, we can keep it whimpering in a cave somewhere. The West was able to keep these rabid marauders docile for centuries with a whack of a big stick. They haven't had their collective snouts cracked in decades.
Perhaps our President-elect will bring a big stick with him on January 20th... I hope so, because as far as I'm concerned, a deferred Christmas wish fulfilled will be happily received.
Shalom through strength.
