Self-Taught Revolution- ISLAM
THE RELIGION OF PEACE??
THE RELIGION OF PEACE
When jihad came to the US on 9/11, we knew almost nothing about Islam. Our teachers, law enforcement, media, and military knew nothing about Islamic doctrine, except at the National Geographic level.
Those who were supposed to be the educational pillars of our civilization, the professors and intellectuals, told us that Islam was the religion of peace and that we were the problem. The classical scholars were apologists for Islam.
Then a revolution happened. Self-taught scholars began to write books and blogs. This new knowledge had a novel feature: their books were written for the common man to read. Previous scholarship from the academy was written for other tenured professors to read.
There was another new feature of the self-taught scholarship—it was about the foundations of Islam—the Koran and the Sunna of Mohammed. Academic scholarship about Islam is based on opinions from complex experts that make watching paint dry seem exciting.
All discoveries and creations are self-taught. No one taught Benjamin Franklin that lightning was electricity, he was self-taught by doing experiments.
Today, if Trump understood the self-taught revolution against Sharia, he would harness the talent that has withstood the onslaught of the Muslim Brotherhood without any support from government. Think of what could happen if people such as Robert Spenser and other warrior scholars were given access to federal law enforcement, military, State Department, and intelligence agencies.
