Militant Islam, the Ideology that Time Forgot
by Bill Levinson
SEPTEMBER 20, 2011
We use “ideology” rather than “religion” to avoid confusing this Dark Age death cult with a legitimate means (including civilized versions of Islam) of relating to God, or a legitimate framework for relating to other human beings. The title was inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “The People that Time Forgot.” The concept of a tribe or people that time forgot is a convenient device for populating an action-adventure story with primitive and violent savages who capture civilized people for purposes like human sacrifice and cannibalism. Militant Islam does not however leave much to the imagination.
