The Rise Of Islamic Militants And The End Of The World
Right from the time of Osama Bin Laden up till this time, the world itself and the fight against terrorism has never remained the same.
His action against the United States was like an eye opener to many around the world to the possibility of hurting the world most protected country. People that had been brewing violence in themselves saw this act as an eye opener and a license to Wreck similar havoc to the world.
United States might not be hit with a similar attack next time and because it is difficult to repeat it, these militant decided to start from their homes – hoping that (their god willing), they would conquer their homes and surrounding countries then make the United States their final destination.
It is believed that the total conversion of the United Stated to Islam marks the victory for the conquest to convert the rest of the world to Islam.
The United States is always on their toes when it comes to matters like this. This is why they are the only country leading the battle against curtailing the excesses of these Militants.
I want to hail them and encourage them to continue in their quest because God is with them. This does not mean that I support the United States in all their policies, but I believe that God placed them on top for this reason.
If not for them, the war against Christians and other faith by these extremists would have been half way completed.
The scary part of these Islamists is that because they feel they are doing the work of God, they are willing to lay down their lives. The lack of the fear of death is what makes this battle a tough one to deal with.
Regular soldiers will always fight, run when the enemy is advancing because he who fights and run lives to fight again. But for these Islamic militant, it is in death that you are crowned a hero. They attack their target with so much anticipation for death as it will give them so much joy to die in service to Allah.
I see Islam as a religion of peace and peaceful Islamic clerics will always testify to this. Where these Islamists are getting their ideas from I don’t know.
Other powers that be in world politics are so busy fighting over territories and Islands, ignoring the potential threat these people pose by their championing for a caliphate around the world.
I think it is by the time they had converted half the world and their countries become next target that they would then begin to see the real picture.
Let us take a look at the issue of Ebola and its take on Africa.
Whenever you listen to the news you hear the United Nation talking about poverty in Africa and what they intend to do about it. It was all about talk and responses to these issues was slow.
The rest of the world ignored Africa because they felt it was not their immediate concern. Poverty was high, so was diseases and outbreaks. Then came Ebola.
People died and before the vaccine that worked came out, thousands were gone. The western countries did not respond until their citizens began contracting that same deadly disease and dying of it. This was the time they now opened their purses and brought out their money to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus because it was obvious that if it was not stopped in Africa, there is no amount of preventive measures put on by them that would prevent their citizens from contracting the disease.
Take a look at the picture. First they ignore Africa and when Africa was hit hard, it overflowed into their countries. The real reason why Ebola spread that fast was nothing because of poverty – a topic the world has ignored for a long time.
Now let us come to the issue of Islamic militancy in Africa. I will say that it is still at its tender age because African leaders are doing their best to combat this menace. History is repeating itself as once again the rest of the continents are ignoring this issue.
The battle has spread and Africa and the Middle East are the primary targets. Should Islamist prevail in Africa, there is no preventive measure put up by the rest of the world that would prevent them from being hit.
Underrating Africa and its influence on the peace the world enjoy is very dangerous. Though it seems like they are not contributing actively to the war against terror but Africa is a strategic position and a sensitive nerve. If it is hit, the world is bound to feel it.
My advice to world leaders is that they should participate actively to the battle against terrorism in Africa now that it is still tender and manageable. I might not be making much sense now but I know I would should my predictions come to pass – though I do not pray so.
The battle has been ignored for so long and the United States were the ones crying out before now while the rest of the world ignored them. Now it has grown to the stage of younger generations being inspired by the messages these militant preach thereby joining them in their battle in Syria and the rest of Iraq.
Though I think that it is now getting the attention it deserves but it is still not enough because the battle against poverty, hunger and terrorism should be the first agenda of the world and United Nations before any other topic.
The battle in the Middle East is just a distraction; Africa is the real deal and the main point for the expansion of the caliphate. If the world is blind to this, then it is only a pity. Since the violence wrecked by Boko Haram in Nigeria and Al-Shabab in Kenya is not enough a signal for them to take definite action to wipe out these cancers now that it has not spread, I don’t know what else will wake them up.
I think I will stop here for now.
