Citizen Warrior: ‘My Friend is a Muslim and He’s Really Nice!’

SOMETIMES WHEN you’re talking about Islam, someone will tell you something like this: “My cousin is married to a Muslim man and he’s a really great guy.” And they will say it like that’s the end of the argument. They pronounce it as if their statement obviously cancels and disproves everything you’ve said about Islam. Here are some possible responses:

1. I can see that you are defending your friend, so let me be clear that I’m not attacking your friend or anyone who calls himself a Muslim. I’m talking about Islamic doctrine. I’m talking about what a devout Muslim is supposed to do, according to Mohammad, and what millions of Muslims in fact do.

2. Is he a practicing Muslim or a Muslim in name only? If he is a practicing Muslim, jihad is obligatory. But keep in mind, jihad means struggling toward the political goal of the dominance of Islamic law. Violence is only one of many ways to work toward that political goal. Also, if he is a practicing Muslim, he cannot be friends with you, according to the Qur’an. He can pretend to be your friend if it serves the goals of Islam, but if he actually feels affection for you and really considers you a friend, he is doomed to burn in hell according to the Qur’an.

3. That’s good (that he’s a really great guy)! But the Muslims following the doctrine still need to be stopped, and one very important thing that needs to happen in order to stop them is for non-Muslims to be educated about what is in the Qur’an and the Hadith. Our fellow non-Muslims need to be made aware of the game plan of the enemies dedicated to destroying our way of life. By trying to stop people like me from educating non-Muslims about Islam, you are actually helping Islamic supremacists with their political goals…

The bottom line

It is not about evaluating the character of each and every individual who was raised in a Muslim family, which would be an impossible task. It is certainly not about anyone’s racial or national origins. Instead, it is all about the dangers of Islamic doctrine.

Islam is an enemy totalitarian political ideology that seeks to rid the world of everything outside of itself. As such, it is inherently evil and undeserving of existence. Destructive ideologies must be counteracted, not only on the battlefield, but also in the marketplace of ideas. We can do this only by familiarizing ourselves with what the ideology is all about so that we can refute it. We must also offer a better ideology and world view in its place; namely, our own Judaeo-Christian civilization and our tradition of freedom and respect for individual rights.
