A case for promoting the Caliphate

Ever since World War I and the dissolution of the Turkish Caliphate which oversaw what was left of the Umma (Muslim world community) not under the immediate dominion of Western colonialists, the Occident has made a point of fragmenting the Umma into as many competing nation-states as possible, run by clone-like, tin pot dictators and split between Sunni and Shia creeds of trifling relevance to a vast majority of Muslim moderates.  Left to their own devices, freed from the rule of psychopathic fanatics, they would rather intermarry than fight, and do business with each other than share mutually assured misery (as they must do these days in Iraq, Bahrain, Pakistan, Syria, etc., etc.).

It has been the Occident’s stated goal to transform these states, (deliberately engineered for internal instability and perpetual contention) into the Muslim Eurozone of stable, democratic, secular equivalents.  Thereby replacing the thousand years et demi of global war between the Christian and Muslim worlds with a new era of peace and mutual acceptance.  Or so the theory goes, in spite of the obvious preference of the Occident’s military-industrial, Judeo-Christian fundamentalist and/or fossil fuel warlords for more instability, more fear and hatred, more warfare expenditure, forever or until all the lights are shot out.

In practice, all this carefully orchestrated mayhem has gone abaft agley: more and more Muslim states anti-Western, less stable, more tyrannical and heavily armed (now nuke-tipped) over which the Occidental powers have less and less influence.  Straight down the crapper with no way out, assuming we insist on sticking to this course of action.

The militant Muslim minority cutting the firewood for this Occident-set firestorm consists of Al Quaeda, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood and fundamentalist sponsors of more and more violent and fanatical terrorist organizations whose spectrum of primary talents seems to stretch from drug dealing, kidnapping, bank jobs and extortion to the mass execution of blameless Muslims.  Their only real strength seems to be that they cannot be extinguished by military means available to the West, short of planetary thermonuclear sterilization.  On the contrary, the more military pressure applied against them, the stronger they get, since their recruitment of regiments of unemployed young idealists depends on heroic war stories in their struggle against the hated West.

When you face a Judo opponent so massive that your best foot-sweep will not budge him, it is time to figure out some fancy new footwork to upset his balance until he trips over his own feet.

What better way to pull the fangs of Muslim radical groups (which cannot be stopped otherwise) than grant them their wish?   What better way to consign them to the dustbin of history, than to confront them with all the problems of ruling a complete Muslim Umma made up of international, cosmopolitan, well-educated, ecumenically-minded people willing to live and let live with the West, provided Westerners stopped murdering them by the million or more per decade (as it has, consistently for the last hundred years).

So rather than rant and rave about The Muslim Threat; rather than shriek for more obsolete, chaos-inducing tactics that have several times proven worthless in the near and distant past; give those militants the one challenge their hyper-violent incompetence could never handle: actually ruling a large community of non-fanatics, one that looks forward to justice, freedom and abundance in the here and now, and will settle for nothing less.  Let the Umma accomplish that which the Occident has never been able to: de-fang Muslim fanaticism and institute the House of Peace, once and for all, where the House of War has always prevailed in the past.

This is a general recommendation: one that would take a full decade of careful, sub rosa negotiation, preparation and cooperation.  The details involved will be incredibly complicated and perilous, but less insurmountable than the bloody mess we have on our hands today.
