If we want to defeat the poison that has took hold in radical Islam, we have to first acknowledge that this exists and engage in an open and blunt conversation about the state of Islam worldwide, while pushing away our fear of repercussion for being politically incorrect.
Narrator Raheel Raza elaborates on this in “By The Numbers – The Untold Story of Muslim Opinions & Demographics,” a documentary produced by the Clarion Project.
By The Numbers argues that segments of the Left, along with Islamic groups – such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) – are attempting to quash any open conversation about Islam, creating an environment where combatting the spread of these dangerous ideologies becomes increasingly difficult.
Ryan Mauro, a National Security Analyst for the Clarion Project told Breitbart News regarding the group’s new documentary on radical Islam:
“It’s time for an honest conversation about the threats of radical Islam, without fear of reprisals from politically correct enforcers. That conversation begins now at Clarionproject.org/numbers
“The Clarion Project is where America comes to have an open, honest conversation about one of the most important issues of our time: the growing threat of radical Islam, and how it affects us all,” he added.
There are three spheres of Islamic radicalization, the documentary explains, providing a visualization of the categories described by author and philosopher Sam Harris.
The first circle, “Violent Jihadists,” are members of terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Hamas. They are the smallest, but most lethal and radical part of the sphere.
“Islamists” are the second part of the sphere. They seek the same end-game as the violent jihadists, but would rather use the political system to do so. The documentary cuts to Sam Harris, who explains what kind of people are part of the Islamist group.
“They are just as convinced of martyrdom and paradise and wanting to foist their religion on the rest of humanity, but they want to work within the system. They’re not going to blow themselves up on a bus. They want to change governments,” Harris says. “They use democracy against itself.”
The Muslim Brotherhood’s short-lived reign in Egypt is a perfect example of the tactics utilized by Islamists to rise to power, the Clarion Project film explains.
The Brotherhood, which calls for the imposition of Sharia law, became the ruling power in Egypt after they won an election in the midst of revolutionary chaos throughout the country. They were later deposed as a ruling authority after millions of Egyptians took to the streets demanding the resignation of President Mohamed Morsi.
Al Qaeda and Hamas were created by the Brotherhood, the video explains, showing the interconnectedness between the violent jihadis and the Islamists.
“Fundamentalists” represent the largest circle within the spheres of radicalization. These are the Muslims who hold views that radically contrast western values. The documentary shows that a vast majority of fundamentalists support the killing of people who leave the Muslim faith. Additionally, according to polling, it shows that most find honor killings of unfaithful spouses as “justifiable.”
By The Numbers finds that hundreds-of-millions of Muslims fall within one of these three categories, citing Pew polling to make this conclusion.
This brave woman is making a difference in the world by speaking the truth despite it likely leading to her being a target.
What she’s saying might be very obvious to some of us, but the fact that she is speaking out and saying it to the public is what makes it so significant. Additionally, the fact that she is a Muslim woman speaking out against Islamic terrorism means that brainwashed progressives won’t automatically tune it out.
Instead of fighting one another, we need to be working together. We need to redirect our efforts to become heavily focused on speaking the truth, having honest and straightforward conversations with one another, and completely ridding the world of political correctness.
Both conservatives and liberals don’t want terrorist attacks to continue threatening our civilization. We need to stop pointing fingers and start working as a team.
The U.S. government is not going to save us; We The People have to save ourselves.
We can’t afford to be politically correct. The future of our nation and the rest of the world can only afford to have the truth spoken and listened to with open ears and an open mind.
