Last week I posted an article on the same topic, where I make the following points:
- A problem cannot be solved unless one actually understands it. But even that is not enough. One must have the will to carry out the solution.
- World conquest in the name of Allah is Islamic doctrine. Whether or not the rest of us are ‘at war’ with Muslims, Muslims, fundamentally, are at war with us. Whether we like it or not. It is an explicit and foundational aspect of the Islamic religion. Islam, is, by nature, a political animal, even as it has ‘religious’ aspects to it.
- Half-measures have done far more harm, historically, than thoroughly decisive actions.
- It is not enough to talk about defeating Islamicists militarily; the ideology itself must be defeated. But when confronting it militarily, it must be done decisively.
- Having ruled out half-measures, this means, in ultimate terms, bringing the false god, Allah, down.
- In order to call something ‘false’, one must believe there is such a thing as ‘truth.’ One cannot act decisively unless one firmly believes they are within ‘truth.’ Or, to put it another way, in order for the Islamic ideology to be defeated, something believed to be better and superior needs to be advanced.
- Currently, the world order is dominated by secular humanists. Their ideology will always be inadequate to the task. Islamicists take advantage of the intrinsic weaknesses of the secular humanist worldview. First and foremost, Islamicists believe that there is such a thing as ‘good and evil’ (and secular humanists and every non-Muslim is evil), while secular humanists are decidedly neutered on this score. Islam is not wrong in saying that there is a real good and a real evil, but what they consider good and evil is very wrong. Christianity offers a counter-weight that secular humanism is powerless to provide.
- This is not difficult to understand, but it is hard to accept. People are not going to like this solution.
Islam is a religion with a history that is a thousand years in the making and is not going to be overthrown in a year or even a decade. A characteristic of our current age is the expectation that seeds planted will bear fruit the next day. Gardeners know better. So do Muslims. They think generationally, while moderns move from fad to fad. If moderns embrace a significant cultural change and it does not end the world overnight, they figure the danger has passed. Some problems… some changes… bring about dangers that do not manifest until decades, even centuries, have gone by.
Given the stated Koranic goal of conquering the world for Allah, what we might perceive as ‘danger’ is to them an opportunity. Moderns play checkers. Muslims play chess.
It is important to understand that when I talk about Muslims, I’m talking about the people who actually believe and act as though the Koran is true. Merely self-identifying as a Muslim does not make someone a Muslim, just as self-identifying as a black person does not make a white person, black. (Sorry.) We can divide up the global Muslim population into three basic groups, which, importantly, exist in pretty much every ideology.
- There are the true believers.
- There are nominal Muslims.
- There are cultural Muslims.
As I said, these groupings exist for every ideological system.
- There are people who are Christian, through and through.
- There are people who lean Christian, take the label, and so on, but are not fully invested in it.
- There are people who, by place of birth, circumstance, or what not, live and breathe as though they are Christian, but don’t really believe any of it.
So, there are a billion Muslims, but a very large number of them do not pose a short term or long term threat. Indeed, there are probably a good many ‘cultural’ Muslims who might feel a certain affection for their homeland or culture, who wish very much that they did not live under Muslim rule.
This is what makes it so despicable when the international community (ie, Obama) does nothing when the Iranians rise up to protest their rigged elections, or the coalition allows Hussein (the other one) to wipe out the Kurds after the first Gulf War, or Obama does everything in his power to empower Islamic radicals (whether intentionally or not is irrelevant here; it has been the actual impact of his policies) in the so-called Arab Spring.
This is just the tip of the ice berg. Many examples can be produced.
Much of these horrific lapses with long lasting devastating consequences have taken place while ‘humanitarian’-minded secular bureaucrats stood by and dilly-dallied, hemming and hawing, perpetually unable to strike a definitive stance–precisely because their worldview is all shifting sand beneath them. Although, they may have been padding their wallets (eg., Oil for Food scandal).
I believe that at bottom, in the main, most people who have ever lived desire freedom and earnestly long for it. They have no intention of imposing their belief systems on other people. If left to their own devices, they would be happy to mind their own business. They wish people would leave their business alone.
But such people are vulnerable to those who possess tyrannical worldviews, especially of the ‘global conquest’ sort, and even more so where the ideology embraces ‘the ends justify the means’ as not just morally justifiable, but a real moral virtue.
Islam has within it explicit support for this perspective. It manifests most obviously in jihad, but is formally expressed in the doctrine of taqiyya. Taqiyya is the teaching that it is quite alright, even justifiable, nay, obligatory, to lie, in the cause of Islam. It is to Islam what Alinsky is to Progressives.
Moreover, because of Islam’s explicit political component, most familiarly known as Sharia law, the cultural (and sometimes nominal) Muslims are no match for the True Believer’s acceptance of some other important Islamic doctrines:
1., Allah is an angry, judgmental god, who is very hard to please. Even a good Muslim’s ‘salvation’ is very much in doubt. EXCEPT, there are ways to gain absolute certainty:
2. Certain acts will win for the Muslim absolute confidence that one will be shown mercy by Allah: Eg., making the Hajj and… Jihad.
You remember jihad, right?
So, entangled into the very fabric of Islam are more than one components that make the religion very dangerous in the hands of the True Believer in Islam, components that exist in other forms in other systems, but do not exist at all in other systems.
In other words, there are some ideologies where there is nothing to fear of ‘True Believers.’ Islam is not one of them.
In countries where Islam dominates the culture, even if you aren’t a True Believer, you’d better talk and act as if you are one, or you’re taking your life in your hands. And I mean, YOU’D BETTER.
If the above seems like an unfair video to produce, perhaps because it occurs in the ‘wild west’ where the radicals are clearly in control, then you may want to take a gander at some of the videos we have of what transpires in the more ‘civilized‘ Saudi Arabia. Or jump to this one. Note the presence of uniformed agents of the country.
With such considerations bouncing around in our head, let us consider one of the foremost pragmatic and practical steps that we can implement if we wish to ultimately defeat Islam:
Numero Uno: do not allow Islamic culture to spread beyond its current reach and decisively turn it back, whenever and wherever you are able, effective immediately.
If this means that Muslim refugees need to be held back from re-locating to places where Islamic culture does not yet hold sway, then, as much as it pains me to say it, so be it.
[Because of truly infantile people on the web, I need to add that this does not mean we do not show them compassion or try to tend to their needs. It does mean that Islam is to ideology what Ebola is to disease; one does not knowingly bring someone who is infected with Ebola into your midst. The soft-headed notion that surrounding the Islamicist with secularists will somehow cure the Islamicist has produced more fatalities in the West than Ebola has.]
It is not just because they are Muslim, per se, that you have to do this. The ‘cultural,’ and a fair number of ‘nominal’ Muslims, would probably get along ‘ok.’ You have to do this because of taqiyya and jihad, and the absolute fact that the True Believers have expressly stated that they will use such migrations to infiltrate new lands, with the explicit and express intent of bringing those lands under Islamic rule.
The daft inevitably will make the argument that they are unlikely to have any success any time soon. Any time soon. See my paragraph beginning, “Islam is a religion with a history…”
The other reason we have to do this is because the people in charge are almost all, to the man, secular humanists who cannot see the categorical difference between refusing to bake a cake and cutting off a man’s head in the street. They can’t recognize genuine evil because they do not understand the real nature of people (eg, the fact of ‘sin’) and the power of ideology. They really believe those poor chaps at Charlie Hebdo had it coming, that they had only themselves to blame. That the massacre was legitimate, per John Kerry.
A bit like Biden saying he wouldn’t judge the Chinese for implementing the One Child Policy, one of the gravest ongoing human rights travesties ever known to man.
These are the ‘humanitarians.’ These are the people in charge of ‘vetting’ the refugees.
There is no hope that any time soon, grown-ups will take charge of our bureaucracies. In the meantime, every day that they are in charge, we are in peril.
The incompetence… or is it delusion… of people like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and Barack Obama, is compounded by the absolutely known fact that the ‘True Believers’ will use this process (any process, really) to get into a country… and then bide their time.
From the link a couple of paragraphs above, was this excerpt from a document detailing the overall ISIS strategy (evidently, in ISIS’ own words)
Yes, my friends. They are pleased with enclaves of ‘cultural’ Islam to hide within, and ultimately use as a staging ground for expanding their ‘land/territory.’
Remember, unlike many religions, in Islam, taking ‘land/territory’ is part and parcel of the overall intent of the religion.
Thus, given enough time (and they are patient… so it could be decades or even centuries), they will come for you.
Thus, preventing such a base of operations from taking root in your community may not have any immediate impact on your own life or livelihood, but you have to have the brains to think ahead, a bit. If not you, what about your kids or your grandkids, or your great-grandkids?
There are many signs in the West already that the impacts are being felt. Chances are, if you found this post at all, you already have seen some of those signs.
One of the problems is that the secular ‘humanitarians’ are pretty much in charge, everywhere. This includes the media. That means that a lot of the horrific stuff that is going on does not get reported. It goes against the narrative, which, at root, excludes the reality of real, genuine evil.
For example, honor killings.
Honor killings are not simply random, cultural artifacts. They are derived from and logically and naturally flow from certain facets of the Islamic religion.
In another case of “they deserve what they get,” there was the case of the Christian evangelists assaulted in Dearborn, as the local police stood by and watched.
That wouldn’t have been my approach, but in this culture, which in the main has endeavored to advance liberty, freedom, and yes, even justice for all, the evangelists had the right to expect the police to protect them.
Of course, the evangelists knew exactly what to expect from the Muslims, which is why they were there.
One thing is for sure, Muslim missionaries would never get that kind of treatment from a Christian crowd, and, in the off chance that they did, sad to say, if current trends continue, the full weight of the law would be unleashed on the Christian. (eg, ‘buffer zones‘, which after decades of unconstitutional abuse, are finally being rolled back).
And don’t even get me started about what Islam believes a person’s obligation should be towards the Muslim who becomes a Christian, versus what Christians believes they should do to the Christian who becomes a Muslim.
The point of this comparison is to illustrate that there are things intrinsic to the Christian ideology that are categorically different than the Muslim one.
Christians might get fired up, but they are not likely to actually fire you up, if you get my meaning. Certain things will happen automatically and inevitably based on the composition and make-up of the culture. We don’t have to use our imagination to fathom what kinds of things happen when Islam dominates the culture. An ounce of research does the trick.
The question is whether or not you have the presence of mind to come to grips with reality as it really is, rather than hoping against all the evidence, that Muslims in the West will create a culture that honors life, freedom of religion, or democracy itself.
So, step one: do not allow Muslims to have a cultural foothold. Interact with them at arms length, and even help them. And dear God, if they themselves try to stand up against the True Believers, such as what we saw in Iran, and in several other places, don’t leave them hanging out to dry.
Much more to say, but this will have to do it for this installment.
