"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
That is what Lt. General Matthew Dooley was teaching at the Joint Forces Staff College.It is therefore time for the United States to make our true intentions clear. This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction.
I had a notion today. I have been trying to figure out why the leadership of IS appears to be engaging in the type of activity that assures it's destruction. But I think I may have found a possible explanation

But I prefer Daniel Pipes' term, "Islamism," because it calls it for what it is:
Islamism is an ideology that demands man's complete adherence to the sacred law of Islam and rejects as much as possible outside influence, with some exceptions (such as access to military and medical technology). It is imbued with a deep antagonism towards non-Muslims and has a particular hostility towards the West. It amounts to an effort to turn Islam, a religion and civilization, into an ideology.
Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism :: Daniel Pipes
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Pretty simple: NO. Nor should any other government for that matter.
So....an Islamic leader can teach sharia law. But the Islamists cannot PRACTICE it, if it against the law.
