Fitna had an overwhelming affect on me. I can't explain why. I've seen all of the images before, forced myself to watch the beheadings, listened to the hateful sermons. I read MEMRI every day. I write about it every day. But somehow, putting it all together, all the words and the voices and the images into this one relentless venue hit me right between the eyes and I will never be the same again. The enemy has spoken and I have heard them.
I have read the Qur'an, every awful page, and I've read a lot of other Islamist literature besides, but most importantly I've listened to our enemy speak and I've read their private letters and now, finally, I have gone over the edge. I've been approaching this precipice for weeks now, maybe months, but I always drew myself back at the last moment. What kept me back was my doubt, my doubt and my hope. I was still unsure of myself. Maybe there was still some way, some way that this horrible death cult could still somehow be integrated into our vital Western world of freedom and independent thought. But, it should be quite evident by now to even the most delusional liberal pacifists amongst us that Islam has no intention of being "integrated" into our liberal Western Society; it is bound by Allah to conquer and subdue this infidel world of ours, not meld into it. And anyone or anything that stands in the way of this divinely-ordained mission must be destroyed.
Fitna has pushed me over the edge and I can't come back even if I wanted to. I'm done with thinking about it. Islam is pure evil, that's all. Islam is the enemy. Islam is beyond repair or redemption or reform. Either we defeat Islam or we will perish. There is no middle ground, no room for compromise. Good Muslims are as irrelevant to this great impending confrontation as were good Nazis in 1933.
Unless we fight back they will win. Simple as that. They will either kill us or subject us to sharia law. No more time wasted in meaningless discussions with Islamist apologists over my alleged misinterpretations of the horrible Qur'an, no more trying to find common ground with our moderate enemies. I am not a fool. I do not misinterpret your actions, and your actions speak louder than your words. All I am interested in now is in defeating you and salvaging our beautiful but embattled civilization from your onslaught. For me, the time for debate has just passed. It passed with Fitna.
