    Yep and a long taught standard of Biblical hermeneutics is not to automatically equate a description with a prescription.

        You are aware that the Christian faith is based on the belief that Jesus "accomplished all" through his death and resurrection, yes?

            If we regard IS as a State, it is at maximum war readiness, a key purpose of the State is to fight a war.

            We are starting to hear talk of 'war' with radical Islam by the French but no Euro State is geared up to a war time level. We are winding down from Iraq and Afghanistan. For now we appear content to let the locals fight it out, whatever the rights and wrongs of that. Perhaps this will change. It depends how other events play out.

              The latest issue of ACG, March 2015 (V. XII, No. 1) has an excellent special article and Ralph Peters' commentary focused on this.

              • Five must-read books on Islamic supremacism and the global jihad

                In light of the France attacks and subsequent re-awakening in Europe and America to the existential threat posed by jihadists, we thought it apt to share some relevant book recommendations.

                What follows are five titles that provide a cursory understanding of the size and scope of, and goals, tactics and strategies employed in the global jihad, the theo-political Islamic supremacist ideology that backs it, and lessons for the West from history on both how to counter it, and the consequences if we are to fail to do so.

                • Greece arrests over Belgian 'plot'

                  Greek police have arrested several people over alleged links to a suspected terror plot in Belgium.
                  One of the men is alleged to have been in contact with the cell in Verviers, Belgium, where a shootout with police left two suspects dead on Thursday

                  • The ignored historical Nazi-Islamic supremacist alliance

                    EXCERPT:
                    In a recent article titled “Why Hitler Wished He Was Muslim,” the Wall Street Journal draws our attention to two books that reflect the historical Nazi-Islamic supremacist axis.
                    Given the goings-on in Europe, we thought these to be poignant titles adding necessary context to a continent that appears to be a potential powder-keg.

                      Not ignored, just viewed as largely irrelevant when framed in larger historical events.

                      • Select excerpts from the above article link;
                        ....
                        Apparently Hitler believed in the congruence between the values and principles espoused by Islam and his vision of Nietzsche’s “Übermensch”:
                        ‘It’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion,” Hitler complained to his pet architect Albert Speer. “Why did it have to be Christianity, with its meekness and flabbiness?” Islam was a Männerreligion—a “religion of men”—and hygienic too. The “soldiers of Islam” received a warrior’s heaven, “a real earthly paradise” with “houris” and “wine flowing.” This, Hitler argued, was much more suited to the “Germanic temperament” than the “Jewish filth and priestly twaddle” of Christianity.
                        Of David Motadel’s “Islam and Nazi Germany’s War,” the Journal writes:

                        …Muslims fought on both sides in World War II. But only Nazis and Islamists had a political-spiritual romance. Both groups hated Jews, Bolsheviks and liberal democracy. Both sought what Michel Foucault, praising the Iranian Revolution in 1979, would later call the spiritual-political “transfiguration of the world” by “combat.” The caliph, the Islamist Zaki Ali explained, was the “führer of the believers.” Made by Jews, led by Jews—therewith Bolshevism is the natural enemy of Islam,” wrote Mahomed Sabry, a Berlin-based propagandist for the Muslim Brotherhood in “Islam, Judaism, Bolshevism,” a book that the Reich’s propaganda ministry recommended to journalists.
                        ....
                        Haj Amin al-Husseini, the founder of Palestinian nationalism, is notorious for his efforts to persuade the Nazis to extend their genocide of the Jews to the Palestine Mandate. The Mufti met Hitler and Himmler in Berlin in 1941 and asked the Nazis to guarantee that when the Wehrmacht drove the British from Palestine, Germany would establish an Arab regime and assist in the “removal” of its Jews. Hitler replied that the Reich would not intervene in the Mufti’s kingdom, other than to pursue their shared goal: “the annihilation of Jewry living in Arab space.” The Mufti settled in Berlin, befriended Adolf Eichmann, and lobbied the governments of Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria to cancel a plan to transfer Jews to Palestine. Subsequently, some 400,000 Jews from these countries were sent to death camps.

                        On these matters, we also highly recommend the late Barry Rubin’s “Nazis, Islamists, and the Making of the Modern Middle East.”
                        ....
                        Lt. Gen. Ion Pacepa, the highest-ranking Soviet Intelligence officer to ever defect told us in an interview in connection with his “Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism:”
                        ...
                        The KGB boss described the Muslim world as a waiting petri dish, in which we could nurture a strain of hate-America. The Muslims had a taste for nationalism, jingoism and victimology. We had only to keep repeating, over and over, that the United States was a war-mongering, Zionist country financed by Jewish money, with the goal of taking over the whole world.

                        The KGB community threw millions of dollars and thousands of people into that gigantic project, as described in our book.

                          So yes irrelevant in the extreme.

                              • Hitler loved violence and conquest as few others have. If he did say he loved Islam for its better fit with violent Nazi ideology, this would seem relevant to a debate on how intrinsically violent Islamic ideology is,especially before its contact with western laws and values.
