OP-ED: ABOUT THE ISLAMIC TOTALITARIANISM
An ideology that wants to radically change the existing nature of a state into a theocracy to be dominated by one religious worldview
An ideology that wants to change the structure of a diverse civil society into a society to be dominated by one religious worldview
An ideology that wants the daily life and the behavior of each individual to be dominated by one religious worldview
is a totalitarian ideology, as was the Communist ideology inspired by the political philosophy of Marx and Engels.
Islamic totalitarianism is a totalitarian ideology inspired by the Quran but it is not a religion.
It divides and fragments the Muslim communities around the world.
The primary “collateral victims” of the fight for power of Islamic totalitarianism are Muslims, who in many countries adhere to an historically peaceful Islam.
Christians are a second category of “collateral victims” of Islamic totalitarianism in Muslim majority countries.
Diverse civil populations in countries where Islam is not professed by a majority are the third category of “collateral victims” of Islamic totalitarianism.
The Islamic totalitarian virus infecting the software of the ummah must not infect humankind. An antidote must be administered.
Combating Islamist totalitarianism with ideas, with words and in practice is legitimate. It is obligatory. It is the self-defence of states, of non-Muslim societies and minorities, and of individuals.
Combating groups and individuals, such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic universities such as al-Azhar, which promulgate Islamic totalitarian ideologies is a must. This is not Islamophobia. It is a fight for human dignity for all, for equality for all and for human rights for all.
