Trump’s White House adviser Steve Bannon, and Breitbart, share the same worldview as ISIS and Al Qaeda. According all of them the “Muslims” are at war with the “Christians” and the Western world as a whole. The enemy, all Muslims or all Christians are evil they claim.
Trump’s, senior adviser, Steve Bannon, believes that there is a war between Islam and the Christian world. The Muslims hate Christianity, he claims. He also believes that there will be a war between “the Chinese” and the U.S.A. within a few years. The reason is that the Chinese, too, fear Christianity.
“You have an expansionist Islam and you have an expansionist China,” he claims. “They are motivated. They’re arrogant. They’re on the march. And they think the Judeo-Christian west is on the retreat… The one thing the Chinese fear more than America … they fear Christianity more than anything.” (source)
The Muslims wants to de-christianize the USA, conquer it and turn it into “Islamic States of America.” That was the topic of a proposed movie he wrote the manuscript for in 2007. This is something he has repeated often in his speeches. The “Christian West” is in “war” and “struggle against Islam“.
Breitbart and ISIS
If you look at Breitbart, which Bannon headed for many years, they have published many, many articles claiming that “Muslims” or “Islam” is at war with the “Christians.” It is one of the central themes of Breitbart.
“The central role that Islam plays in the war on Christians”. (source)
“Where Islam reigns, Christianity is dying… Such anti-Christian activity by Muslims… Despite the effort to eradicate Christians in the Muslim world, all we hear from their Muslim persecutors and naïve non-Muslim supporters of Islam are wails of “Islamophobia”—just by questioning Islamic dogma’s impact on human rights. An Islamic crusader mindset seeks to make Christians extinct.” (source)
By claiming that “Muslims” and the whole of Islam is at war with the “Christians” they share the worldview of ISIS.
ISIS too generalizes about its “enemy.” Breitbart claims that all Muslims, and Islam as a whole, are evil. ISIS uses the same method and describes all Christians, and Christianity as a whole as evil.
“The Crusaders can read into why Muslims hate and fight them, why pagan Christians should break their crosses… In essence, we explain why they must abandon their infidelity and accept Islam”. (ISIS magazine Dabiq 15)
The “Muslim Conquest of Italy”
Breitbart and ISIS have another thing in common. ISIS wants to conquer Rome and Italy to “break down Christianity.” Breitbart has published an article where it makes the same claim, but of course it is “the Muslims,” not only ISIS, that wants to conquer it.
In 2015 Breitbart published this article: “The Coming Muslim Conquest of Italy: Will We Have to Ransom the Treasures of the Vatican from ISIS-Type Vandals?” (Please note that Breitbart does not differ between ISIS and “Muslims.” They are the same for them.)
The author (Virgil) talks about the flow of immigrants to Italy from Africa, “There’s an African invasion of Italy… going on every day in the Mediterranean, as much of the population of Africa (home to 1.1 billion people, about half of them Muslim) seeks to transplant itself to Italy”, Virgil claims.
Virgil asserts that the “Muslims” will destroy the Christian heritage in Italy and Rome. He asks:
“What will be the psychic toll if and when the Muslims of Italy start defacing or destroying the cultural and artistic treasures of their new home? It’s worth noting that the cultural destruction practiced by ISIS in the Middle East is not a new phenomenon; the Muslim impulse to destroy or transform Western creations is, indeed, long-standing…
If you read through the propaganda of ISIS you find that they have exactly the same worldview as Breitbart but in reverse. True friends think alike!
There is a war between the Muslims and Christians, and Italy has to be conquered and the churches destroyed, ISIS claims.
“We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.
So mobilize your forces, O crusaders. Mobilize your forces, roar with thunder, threaten whom you want, plot, arm your troops, prepare yourselves, strike, kill, and destroy us. This will not avail you. You will be defeated… We fight you with it. So die in your rage… And those who have disbelieved – unto Hell they will be gathered}…
You will pay the price as you are afraid of travelling to any land. Rather you will pay the price as you walk on your streets, turning right and left, fearing the Muslims. (ISIS magazine Dabiq 4)
What a coincidence. Breitbart and ISIS think alike!
Not all Muslims, just a few
Contrary to the claims of ISIS and Breitbart Muslims generally don’t hate Christians and Christians generally don’t hate Muslims. Those that hate are the extremists. Those that believe there is a war are few, and even fewer want a war.
The proponents of co-existence and peace among Muslims base their worldview on the Qur’an directly.
“To you be your religion, to me be mine.” (The Quran)
“There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion.” (The Quran)
This is an idea that both ISIS and Breitbart hate. They don’t want understanding and tolerance.
It is the haters that claim that all Muslims, or all Christians, are evil. It is the haters that claim that all of Islam or all of Christianity are evil. Steve Bannon and Breitbart have more in common with ISIS and Al Qaeda than normal peaceful Muslims have.
