The Irony of an Islamic Terrorist Attack
Islamic Terrorism: There can be no victory
Whenever we talk about Islamic Terrorism our greatest fears come forward.
What if an Islamic terrorist detonated a nuclear bomb on a major American city?
This horrific scenario sends chills down the collective American spine.
The death and sorrow would be almost unbearable for the American
psyche. But ironically it would have far worse repercussions for Islam
worldwide. Here’s what would happen worldwide if such an atrocity
First,within hours of the attack there would not only be random
murders of Muslims in the U.S.A. but worldwide as well. After
a few months the death toll could come to a global tally in the
millions. It doesn’t end there either. In this situation there
could very well be a political movement to not only end
Muslim immigration to our country but also a mass deportation
of all Muslim U.S. citizens. This extreme public policy decision
would not only be justified by fears of future attacks but also
on the protection of these people from discrimination
and revenge attacks.
In geopolitical terms,the fragile peace established in both India
and Israel with their Islamic adversaries would be extremely
difficult to sustain in this post nuclear scenario. It is very
likely war would break out in both of these regions leading
again to the death of many Muslims.
The hatred and discrimination against Muslims would be so intensified
by a nuclear attack that many Muslims may give up their faith and
even more people would be strongly discouraged from converting to the
Furthermore it is not fantastical to conceive that a global
movement might arise calling for the restriction of all Muslims
to one part of the world so as to prevent another attack.
In conclusion we know now that a successful nuclear attack
would not be a victory for Islam but would seriously threaten
its overall existence. Radical Islamists should remember the old
saying “be careful for what you wish for because you might get it”
In the end this may be what ends Islamic terrorism and brings
peace to the world: the terrorists realizing that massive,nuclear
attack will not only lead to their personal demise but potentially
the demise of ALL Muslims on planet earth.
