The Problem of Islamophilia

Bosch Fawstin has written an honest and enlightening essay on what Islam means to its true followers. I've excerpted a couple of paragraphs here.

"Non-Muslim Muslims and the Jihad Against the West"
My name is Bosch and I’m a recovering Muslim.

That is, if Muslims don’t kill me for leaving Islam, which it requires them to do. That’s just one of the reasons I’ve been writing and drawing against Islam and its Jihad for a number of years now. But fortunately for us, Islam hasn’t been able to make every Muslim its slave, just as Nazism wasn’t able to turn every German into a Nazi. So there is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t.

Another problem with Muslims who aren’t very Muslim is that they lead some among us to conclude that they must be practicing a more enlightened form of Islam. They’re not. They’re “practicing” life in non-Muslim countries, where they are free to live as they choose. But their “Islam” is not the Islam. There’s no separate ideology apart from Islam that’s being practiced by these Muslims in name only, there’s no such thing as “Western Islam”.

There is much more. The author describes the problem facing our nation as "Islamophila." This is the uncritical, uninformed, and absolute defense of Islam by Western elites, and the criticism of those who dare to inform themselves and others. Recently the Obama administration ordered the removal of any mention of Islam in FBI anti-terror training materials. This same administration classifies the Ft. Hood massacre as just "workplace violence." These are clear examples of giving in to political correctness and refusing to face the truth about Islam, and the danger to our freedom it presents.

Bosch Fawstin gives a perspective that may be eye-opening to many. Even normally patriotic Americans are often afraid to speak the truth. The problem is Islam and Islam is at war with us.
