“I believe the only way is to expose the Muslims to different cultures, different thoughts, different belief systems,” said Dr Sultan, who is completing her first book, The Escaped Prisoner: When Allah is a Monster. — from this article
Here is one of those details: those who are in a position to do so must work first to educate Infidels, so that a sufficient number of them in positions of power clearly understand the texts, tenets, attitudes, atmospherics of Islam. They must also be brought to understand why it is that efforts at appeasement and “integration” of Muslims into societies whose basic principles are flatly contradicted by Islam will fail.
And then, beyond the political and journalistic groups, and beyond those who are to protect and instruct us, there are ever-widening groups of citizens. These must make sure that in every encounter with Muslims, their new knowledge, and new implacable attitude, are not hidden from view, but self-confidently displayed.
What effect will this have on Muslims? It will madden many. So what? Many have already been taught to spread Islam, to subdue Infidels, to remove every obstacle to the imposition of rule by Muslims. And they are prepared to use what instruments at the time prove most effective. Furthermore, they have never been put in a position where they are forced to look at, or to confront, the history of Islamic Jihad conquest and the subjugation of non-Muslims. Make them do so. Force them to do so.
And make them look — because increasing numbers of Infidels will not for one minute let them forget — at the way in which the basic doctrines of Islam, and the figure of Muhammad, have worked themselves out in history. If there is despotism and corruption all over the Muslim lands, make sure they understand that it is Islam itself that locates political legitimacy in the will expressed by a whimsical Allah, as revealed in the Qur’an, and glossed — for most Muslims — by the Hadith and Sira. Make them look at the fact that there is economic paralysis in the Muslim lands, despite the ten trillion dollars received since 1973 alone by ten Muslim members of OPEC. The few Muslim states that have some economic development have it because, though Muslim, they have for a long time been living with the systematic constraining of Islam as a political and social force, as in Turkey. Or they might enjoy a relatively higher level of economic development because they have within their borders a sufficient number of non-Muslims who are able to provide the essential element for economic development, as in Malaysia, or to provide a kind of modernizing and civilizing effect on the local Muslims, or at least on some of them, as has happened because of the large Christian presence in Lebanon.
And do the same with social, moral, and intellectual development. Try to persuade Muslims to learn history, including the history of early Islam, and how it developed, and what was the real story of the Qur’an. In other words, subject Islam to the same treatment that Christianity and Judaism were subjected to by the practice of the Higher Criticism.
The most primitive people will not stand for it. But others will, and then they will begin to think. Some may have already begun to think, especially if they are non-Arab Muslims and can first have their minds opened a bit by appealing to their understanding of the role non-Arabs play within Islam. Some may already have begun to think if it has been pointed out to them how Islam is, and has always been, a vehicle for Arab linguistic, cultural, and other kinds of imperialism. Intelligent Persians, Indonesians, even some Pakistanis, will not be able to deny the truth of that assertion, and who knows? Some may, after examining all this evidence, find themselves in a mood to look back to their pre-Islamic pasts, national and personal.
But it starts with the Infidels, and what they know, or are capable of learning and understanding. The only way to expose the Muslims to different cultures, different thoughts, different belief systems, as Dr. Sultan recommends, is through the efforts of Infidels.
