Preserving the Gray Zone

Pages 54 - 66 give us a glimpse of why making generalized attacks against muslims is an ineffective tactic in the war against the Islamic state; in fact, marginalizing non-millitant muslims in western nations plays right into their stratagem. You see, the islamic state wants to eliminate what they consider 'the gray zone', which is the aggregate of muslims that are independent of the self-proclaimed caliphate (in their own words). They want to restructure the world in to two camps: the islamic (iman) and the kufr. They directly admit this thrice: twice on page 62 and once on page 66.

'The presence of the Khilafah also magnifies the political, social, economic, and emotional impact of any operation carried out by the mujahidin against the enraged crusaders. This magnified impact compels the crusaders to actively destroy the gray zone themselves, the zone in which many of the hypocrites and deviant innovators living in the west are hiding (62).'

'The muslims in the west will quickly find themselves between one of two choices, they either apostatize and adopt the kufri religion propagated by Bush, Obama, Blair, Cameron, Sarkozy, and Hollande in the name of islam so as to live amongst the kuffar without hardship, or they perform the hijrah to the islamic state and thereby escape persecution from the crusader government and citizens (62).'

'Muslims in the crusader countries will find themselves driven to abandon their homes for a place to live in the khilafah, as the crusaders increase persecution against muslims living in western lands so as to force them into a tolerable sect of apostasy in the name of islam before forcing them into blatant Christianity and democracy (66).'

Doing stuff like this will only hurt our cause and strengthen the islamic state. I'm not saying that islam is a peaceful religion or that jihadists aren't true muslims. All I am saying is that we should drop the generalized anti- muslim rhetoric and align with muslims who are against the islamic state until the islamic state is obliterated.
