“Attention People of Earth!” is usually a phrase heard in a science-fiction movie, spoken by the ‘President of Earth’ or an invading alien bent on world domination. Well, this isn’t a sci-fi movie; it is reality.
A cry of world domination is being shouted at us today by those who perpetrate terrorist acts in the name of Islam and declare Islamic caliphates. The call of Islam is world subjugation to Allah. There is no room for others or coexistence (Koran 9:29). Need proof? Just look at the post-apocalyptic conditions that currently exist under the self-declared Islamic State in northern Iraq; with the stated intent to bring the same to the rest of the world.
In stark terms, approximately 1.7 billion followers of Islam believe that the end game is total domination of the rest of Earth’s people. We call those who are acting in this way “radical” or “fundamentalist” Muslims; yet it is the core belief of the Islamic religion. It doesn’t matter ̶ French, British, Chinese, Christian, Hindu ̶ we all must be subject to the will of Allah. If you are a Muslim of any stripe, these are the teaching of the Koran and its interpretive writings. This is not the ranting of this author. It is the teachings of many eminent experts in the field of Islamic Studies.
This is just a short quote from an article by Dr. Moshe Sharon, a professor of Islamic History at the Hebrew University: “Now let’s move to the essence of Islam. Islam was born with the idea that it should rule the world. Let’s look, then, at the difference between these three religions. Judaism speaks about national salvation – namely that at the end of the story, when the world becomes a better place, Israel will be in its own land, ruled by its own king and serving God. Christianity speaks about the idea that every single person in the world can be saved from his sins, while Islam speaks about ruling the world. I can quote here in Arabic, but there is no point in quoting Arabic, so let me quote a verse in English. “Allah sent Mohammed with the true religion so that it should rule over all the religions.” The idea, then, is not that the whole world would become a Moslem world at this time, but that the whole world would be subdued under the rule of Islam.”

We live in different parts of world, we are proud members of different cultures, and we are products of different histories. But, for the most part, we all believe in the basic tenet of freedom – freedom of thought, freedom of expression, and freedom of religion. In a nut shell, this is what is being attacked. This is what the enemy, at their own admission, is trying to take away from all of us.
Attention People of Earth! We don’t have to go back that far in history to see that appeasement (an expectation that those who don’t hold to the same value system as you will respect negotiated agreements) doesn’t work. After all, Hitler spelled out his plan for world domination in Mein Kampf for everyone to read. We didn’t listen then. We tried to negotiate and 60 million people died in World War II. And today, yet again, we still expect everyone to play by the same rules.
Speaking of rules and shared values, the Geneva Convention was (and still is) a great framework to address conventional world and regional conflicts. Key Articles cover uniformed combatants, treatment of prisoners, and protection of civilian populations. However, according to Muslims, Islam is above all other religions. And Shariah is the only law. Therefore, radical Islamists don’t play by our western ideals as expressed in the Geneva Convention.
Attention People of Earth! So what is the plan? How can we defeat this threat of world domination? Conventional government actions (such as surgical bombing of IS, no fly lists, “we’re keeping tabs on suspects”, etc.) have failed to stem their successes of attacks and recruitment. Where are Bruce Willis and the cadre of action heroes, or super heroes for that matter, when you need them?
So, I ask again, does anyone have a plan as to how to combat this blatant attempt at world domination at the expense of everyone’s freedom?
Actually, someone does have a plan. And he’s actually already successfully implemented it. He is Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. What he did was institute a straight-forward two-step plan and added a third “call to action.”
First, and most importantly, President el-Sisi outlawed radical Islamic organizations, like the Muslim Brotherhood. Second, he followed through and crushed them; utterly and completely. Third, he made a speech this past New Year’s Day (that has gotten very little western news coverage) calling for a religious revolution within Islam because, in his words, radical Islam is “antagonizing the entire world.” (Link: http://www.raymondibrahim.com/from-the-arab-world/egypts-sisi-islamic-thinking-is-antagonizing-the-entire-world/)
Attention People of Earth! It is time to raise your voices. Demand from your regional and world leaders a plan to effectively deal with current declared war for world domination at the expense our freedom. (Psst. One place to look for a model plan is Egypt.)
Attention People of Earth! As we mourn and march with the victims and people of France, can you hear the war cries for world domination?
Attention People of Earth! Are you listening?
Attention People of Earth! There is no time to waste.
