For ISIS "and those similarly motivated," insists retired Marine Lt. Col. James G. Zumwalt in an essay published by Family Security Matters, "a rational world should recognize but one `final solution' exists – their extinction."
For Zumwalt. "those similarly motivated" is an expansive category, which includes not only "al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Taliban, the mullahs of Iran, Somalia's Shababb, [and the] Khorasan group," but also their Muslim victims. On the basis of murkily sourced atrocity accounts and propaganda videos of dubious provenance, Zumwalt concludes that the victims of ISIS exhibit a "Muslim death wish" by supposedly allowing themselves to be killed without seeking "to overpower their captors."
"The message to take from Muslim victims unwilling to save themselves to pursue their promised afterlife should be clear: their murderers will never be convinced to stop killing," asserts Zumwalt.
