(+ Vive Jesus! (Live Jesus!) +)
Thank you for posting this.
IMHO, the West will never come to terms with radical Islam until it understands the motivations behind it.
Qutb is the founder of this movement and as its principal author, his words resonate with the current crop of Radicals that threaten us now.
What amazed me the most Pyro, was his assertion that viewing 1940s America revealed its decadence. He would have fallen over in shock if he were to see the Western World of today.
I have grave suspicions however about many of the assertions he makes. For instance, a Western Woman tried to seduce him on the ship? Yeah right, I'm sure they were falling all over thenselves for his studly bod. Additionally, the idea that British intellegence would under any circumstance reveal their long term plans to an admitted Radical and likely foe seems ludicrous.
I do thank you for posting this, knowledge is power. And like any good soldier, I like to know my enemy.

(Anyone else play Day of Defeat?)
Islam will always be dangerous, because revival is an ever present phenomenon of religions. In revival, followers attempt to emulate their religions' founders.
In Jewish revival, Jews emulate Moses, living by the law, and trying to get to the Promised Land.
In Christian revival, Christians emulate Christ, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and evangellizing the masses.
In Islamic revival, Muslims emulate Mohammed, and seek to conquer and drive out the infidel, butcher indiscriminately, plunder their neghbors, take their woman as they please, and enslave whom they will.
Peaceful Islam is the aberration.
The root of any and all forms of islam is in satan
Mohammed wrote the koran under the influence of a demon by his own admission..he was tricked by one of his wives and his own pride into changing his mind...
The fruits of Mohammed and his belief in Allah being the same God as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are fairly evident in history..death
By their fruits you will know them...and their dogma
Moderate islam is the trojan horse of the pure form
Jesus refered to himself as "living water..the water that eliminates all thirst" He and He alone is the wellspring of all life...
Mohammed and Islam denies this..all Islam denies this...even the moderate form
Moderate muslims are often kind hearted, decent, hard working tax payers..in a secular society and even a Christian one this is all that is required..and should be
Jesus said that he who is not against us is for us..
As long as islam is not against Christ in an open ovet manner ..it is ok...this doesnt alter the fact that its a false religon that will ultimately deliver its followers into eternal damnation...but to allow them to live among us is ok as long as they are not against us...
And perhaps this way many will be allowed by Jesus to see the truth and come to saving faith in Christ...
If they plot in secret in their mosques or teach death to US citizens Jews and Christians in their Islamic training centers than it would be in the interest of national security to stop them
To give the wahhabi lobby -CAIR access to the pockets of our politicans is also cultural suicide imo..
