NOT ONLY ARE Jihadis killing people around the world in impressive numbers, but they are also invading democracies, demanding and gaining concessions from non-Muslims, and slowly encroaching on democratic freedoms with the end-goal of establishing the repressive form of law known as Shari’a. Obviously, this must be stopped. The situation is urgent and your help is needed.
But you’re not a soldier. You don’t work for a counterterrorist organization. What can you do? There are a surprising number of practical, effective actions you can take to become a Citizen Warrior right where you are:
6. Read the Qur’an.
12. Contribute news items to Concessions to Islam.
13. Contribute stories of citizen warrior heroes to Citizen Warriors.
Don’t try to do all of these. You’ve got to be smart about this, and that includes keeping your motivation level high, getting enough sleep, and having a life. Feeling overwhelmed by things that must be done is not good for your motivation and it can impair your ability to persist.
So choose one or two of these things that most interest you, and get to work on it. You can always come back to this list later if you want to do more.
Also, I urge you to share this list with people you know who want to do something about “terrorism” but don’t know what. Let’s defeat the Jihadis and Islam’s relentless encroachment with our effective actions.
