For now…Yes, for now the Muslims spread throughout the world are like meek lambs, undoubtedly laughing up their sleeves at the westerners in their search for peace and union with them. We aren’t saying this with our head in the clouds; rather, our feet are firmly planted on the ground after having examined certain exhortations of the Koran. We all know that this is the sacred book of Islam, the literal and eternal word of Allah and his prophet Mohamed, to whom every Muslim owes absolute fidelity.
The migratory explosion that we assisted principally in 2015 reminds us of the story of the Trojan War. After ten long years of siege on the city of Troy, the Greeks were unable to conquer it. Using the symbolic figure of a horse — which was one of the symbols of Athena, the goddess of war, and by legend also a sacred figure for the Trojans — the Greeks constructed a wooden image of great dimensions. After hiding their best warriors within it, the rest of the Greeks soldiers pretended their return to Greece. Seeing the image of the horse, the Trojans did not know what to do with it, but finally decided to carry it into the city in order to praise the goddess Athena. At night, while the entire city slept, the soldiers emerged and began to destroy the city from within, opening the doors to the rest of the army that had hidden on the nearby island of Tenedos, while waiting for the favorable moment of the invasion. In this manner, Troy fell into Greek hands.
Unlike the Trojans, there is no wooden horse to deceive us, but rather a false interpretation of love and mercy. Could this end up being just as the famous horse was for Troy? We should remember that there does not exist two groups of Muslims, moderate or fanatic ones, as some would like us to believe. Rather, there are only Muslims – those faithful to the teachings of Allah who exhorts them, for example, to not wane before the enemies: “so do not waver and call for peace while you have the upper hand” (Surah 47:35). If, far from preaching universal love, the Koran incessantly preaches the superiority of the Muslims over all of the other peoples and religions — to whom they must deal out a harsh and unmerciful treatment — this is the same attitude of Allah toward those who despise his admonitions.
On the other hand, we also recall the words of Jesus to the beloved city of Jerusalem: “As he drew near, he saw the city and wept over it, saying, ‘If this day you only knew what makes for peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes. For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides. They will smash you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation’” (Lk 19:41-44).
