Islam Is Islam
I am persuaded that there are no modifiers to Islam. Radical Islam is redundant. Islam started with thievery, murder and slavery. It advanced to assassinations and conquests. Churchill and T. E. Lawrence both understood that it is not a religion at all.
Churchill wrote in 1899 in The River Wars
How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.
We are going to have to face the fact that democracy and Islam are not in any compatible. We are going to have to eliminate Islam to have peace.
This last July I returned to the subject
The Religion Of Peace and Taqiyya
It's been a year since I posted Islam is Islam. I said then there is no need to add modifiers such as Radical to the word Islam. Here is my thinking a year later.
Those living in peace have the time to form bonds of love. There has never been peace in Islam, so they don’t know how to love. But hate! Oh God can they hate. They have a deep, deep resentment of anything that might jolt them from their delusions of grandeur and show them for what they are - a decadent savage people controlled by a religion that denies them of all human ambitions. Except for the few of them cruel enough to command them as one commands a mob of sheep.
The Koran has many things besides punishment and rewards. It gives instruction about fornication, adultery, alms, murder, corruption, insults, divorce, persecution, wet-nursing, backbiting, gambling, infanticide, heathenism, inheritance, how to sleep, menstruation, intercourse, orphans, eating in others houses, prayer times, ownership of horses, sucking, prohibition of alcohol, retaliation, satans, treatment of slaves, thievery, usury, cunning, omens, diets, food laws, prayers of the evil, sexual abstinence, raising the dead, sexual dishonor, eunuchs, regulations for keeping concubines, evil spirits, why Mohammed must be believed, vanquishing the Greeks, veiling the face, cattle, idolatry, breaking bonds with kin, avarice, ritual washing, head shaving, rules for pilgrims, treatment of enemies and women refugees, lewdness, pregnant camels, rain, perversity, plots, and counterplots.
The Koran is a source for how those in a tribe should behave with one another and with other tribes. There is nothing in it like the golden rule. There are no prescriptions like the Ten Commandants. Islam was founded on murder, theft, rape and slavery. When Mohammad led a raid on a neighboring tribe and they came back with a lot of booty, he said it showed they were true believers and that Allah had blessed them for their faith. The Koran sanctions the use of violence. Islam is many things, but it not a religion that promotes a positive culture. What kind of perverse society, religion, culture is it that breeds volcanic hatred?
The Koran is laced with hate for Jews. Perhaps because Mohammed was not able to convince Jewish tribes to follow and support him. He attacked them, killed all the men and made slaves of the women and children. Islam is unable to live in peace with anyone, including other muslims. Blood feuds between tribes last for decades and longer. Violence is not confined to inter-tribe rivalries, it’s Shia against Sunni, it’s all Muslims against the infidels.
All those ‘...ite tribes you have heard about such as Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, etc. They are still around, some with different names but with legacies and hates going back over two millennia.
Mohammad declares that ”Allah is the most accomplished liar and deceiver." From this Mohammad sanctions deception as a means to establish a world-wide caliphate. It’s called Taqiyya and it is the Muslims' license to lie to infidels in order to camouflage Islam's holy war strategy (jihad) to conquer the world. Deception is considered a good work and good works must be done consistently and repeatedly to earn salvation with the except of the greatest work of dying while fighting non-Muslims. I think understanding this is key to understanding that Islam will never be peaceful.
When Obama refuses to call terrorism by salifists what it is, he is lying. He is sympathetic to the Islamic State.
Of the trillions of dollars received in payment for oil, a western person might wonder why none of it has been used to invest in say manufacturing to provide jobs for when the oil finally runs out. It is because Islam creates a culture that does not promote doing anything for themselves? Any work is best done by servants and non-muslims. The Koran instructs that believers are here awaiting paradise. There is nothing they can do but endure and hate.
Why? The answer, in a word, is “liberty.” Something foreign to Islam. Liberated people are ingenious. Slaves, serfs, subordinated women, people frozen in a hierarchy of lords or bureaucrats are not.
Western thought is not encouraged. No western literature is translated into Arabic. It is a closed society. It’s difficult for a non-Muslim to get a visa to Saudi. They have contributed nothing to human betterment for centuries, unless you consider the assassin and the terrorist as human gifts.
If peace is not possible, what’s to be done with the infestation of Muslims we already have in the western world? Should we continue to allow any to enter the US even as tourists?
