Understanding Political Islam

mosque-dome.jpgRobert Spencer points to an interesting encapsulation of and a new approach to the ideology of Islamic supremacism by Bill Warner in a FrontPage interview with Jamie Glazov. Warner is the director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam, whose goal is to teach the doctrine of political Islam through its books and a series on its focus.

This excerpt offers an example of one of the many differences between Western logic and Islamic logic. If you end up scratching your head and saying "Huh????," you're not alone:

All of Western logic is based upon the law of contradiction--if two things contradict, then at least one of them is false. But Islamic logic is dualistic; two things can contradict each other and both are true.

No dualistic system may be measured by one answer. This is the reason that the arguments about what constitutes the "real" Islam go on and on and are never resolved. A single right answer does not exist.

Dualistic systems can only be measured by statistics. It is futile to argue one side of the dualism is true. As an analogy, quantum mechanics always gives a statistical answer to all questions.

For an example of using statistics, look at the question: what is the real jihad, the jihad of inner, spiritual struggle or the jihad of war? Let's turn to Bukhari (the Hadith) for the answer, as he repeatedly speaks of jihad. In Bukhari 97% of the jihad references are about war and 3% are about the inner struggle. So the statistical answer is that jihad is 97% war and 3% inner struggle. Is jihad war? Yes--97%. Is jihad inner struggle? Yes--3%. So if you are writing an article, you can make a case for either. But in truth, almost every argument about Islam can be answered by: all of the above. Both sides of the duality are right.

According to Warner, the term "human being" has no meaning inside of Islam. There is no such thing as humanity, only the duality of the believer and unbeliever.

Warner goes on to warn that if we do not learn the doctrine of political Islam, our civilization will be annihilated just as Egypt's Coptic civilization was annihilated:

... unbelievers must know the doctrine of political Islam to survive.

... Islam declares that we are the enemies of Allah. If we do not learn the political doctrine of Islam we will end up just like the first victims of Islam--the tolerant, polytheist Arabs of Saudi Arabia who became the Wahabbis (a very strict branch of Islam) of today, the most intolerant culture on the face of the earth.

Unless Warner is very far off base and has no idea about what he's talking about, we'd all best be learning a hell of a lot more about political Islam then most of us do now. Our survival may well depend upon it.
