I Have Cassandra Syndrome

By: - November 11, 2020

I hope that I am mistaken and that time will prove me wrong, but being a student of history, my knowledge tells me differently.  My prediction is that as a result of the 2020 election, the United States of America and the world are heading into what will become one the most contentious dark periods.  The statements coming from the Islamic nation of Iran are broadcasting what is to come.

“The situation in the U.S. & what they themselves say about their elections is a spectacle! This is an example of the ugly face of liberal democracy in the U.S. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is absolutely clear, the definite political, civil, & moral decline of the U.S. regime.”  -Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

After four years of the Trump administration’s policies that beat back the hopes and efforts within the Islamic quest for world dominance, the American population has begun to pretend that there is no longer a threat from the Islamic world.  Since the 7th century the leaders of Islam have preached the writings of the Koran with its direction to bring the entire world under the Islamic religion.  That desire and quest has not changed, nor will it, until the end of time.  What has changed is that with the election of 2020 the leaders of the Islamic world have been given a “moral high ground” to rally their followers.

To the “western mind” the idea to “live and let live” seems so rational.  For the “Islamic mind” that is an impossibility.  In the Islamic mind, Allah (God) creates all things, life being the most important, and determines the correct actions by which mankind should behave and live, the basis for Islamic law.  The “liberal democracy” and “moral decline” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei refers to are those subjects that were presented so boldly during the 2020 election cycle.  Many of the subjects are seen as abhorrent offensives against Allah.  A true believer of Islam cannot tolerate a country that condones such behavior.  Therefore, to please Allah they must take action, jihad, to bring us into compliance under Islamic law.

It is my belief that we will now face a renewed, revived and strengthened jihadism.  A good percentage of the American population will refuse to believe what I and others know and are saying about the situation.  We can only hope that either I (we) am wrong or that our government beyond the elected political officials are well prepared for what Islamic jihadists will bring forth.

Cassandra Syndrome: The term originates in Greek mythology.  Cassandra was a daughter of Priam, the King of Troy.  Struck by her beauty, Apollo provided her with the gift of prophecy, but when Cassandra refused Apollo’s romantic advances, he placed a curse ensuring that nobody would believe her warnings.  Cassandra was left with the knowledge of future events, but could neither alter these events nor convince others of the validity of her predictions.  From Wikipedia
