Calling Islam "Islam"
3 July 2010 Bosch Fawstin


Islam is a political religion; the idea of a separation of Mosque and state is unheard of in the Muslim world.


Western intellectuals and commentators refer to the enemy's ideology as:

"Islamic Fundamentalism", "Islamic Extremism", "Totalitarian Islam", "Islamofascism", "Political Islam", "Militant Islam", "Bin Ladenism", "Islamonazism", "Radical Islam", "Islamism", etc....

The enemy calls it "Islam".

Imagine, if during past wars, we used terms such as "Radical Nazism", "Extremist Shinto" and "Militant Communism". Those who use terms other than "Islam" create the impression that it's some variant of Islam that's behind the enemy that we're facing. A term such as "Militant Islam" is redundant, but our politicians continue praising Islam as if it were their own religion. Bush told us, "Islam means peace" -- after 2,996 Americans were murdered in its name. He maintained that illusion throughout his two terms, and never allowed our soldiers to defeat the enemy. And now we have Obama, who tells us, from Egypt: “I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear." Washington's defense of Islam has trumped the defense of America and this dereliction of duty could well be called Islamgate.

Quo Vadis, Redux. Can Islam be reformed? The Conservative Alternative. Old Testament vs Koran.


I sometimes imagine myself in the role of a latter day Roman contrarian, living in a time of my country’s certain dissolution on the eve of an invasion by barbarian hordes bent on loot and conquest. On one hand, will granting twelve million illegal, mostly Mexican aliens the right to vote and so skew the November election returns, secure for Democrats their continued occupation of Congress and President Barack Obama the freedom to “transform” the country? The Democrats have been put on notice by the electorate that they will be bounced, so will they resort to underhanded immigration reform and gerrymandering to ensure their hegemony?

On the other, will the country be inundated with hordes of Muslims, whose first allegiance is to the Islamic Ummah, whose creed regards the Constitution as an abomination? I would not be the first observer to note that illegal (and even many legal) Mexicans and Muslims harbor a peculiarly insular and ingrained xenophobia for their adopted country and a bizarre fealty for the countries they fled.

There is a synergistic linkage between submission to Islam, even to Christianity, and to Congress. All three institutions require, insofar as obeying the “law” is concerned, absolute and unquestioning obedience. These forces complement and buttress the other.

In Islam’s Koran -- and this is applicable to Christianity and Congress, as well -- there are no optional laws, proscriptions, and commands to observe or obey. It is all or nothing, either immediately, or in increments or stages over a lifetime. Once set in motion, however, regardless of the schedule, the observance and obedience cannot surcease unless the perils of submission are identified and the submission repudiated.

Forfatteren av den siste artikkelen kommer dessverre med noen ganske grove feilslutninger:
Can Islam be reformed?

Christianity underwent reformation over several torturous and bloody centuries. In the end, in the West, religion was largely separated from the state.
[...]
I think that many perceptive non-Muslim critics of Islam and some more thoughtful Muslims believe Islam can be "reformed." I do not think it can be "reformed" without killing it. Subject its doctrine to moral surgery to remove its belligerent, homicidal, racist, and rapacious elements, and what would be left but a creed as pacific as the Quaker or Amish? It could no longer be "Islam," but something else entirely.

Her impliserer han at å reformere Islam ikke er mulig, på tross av at det i stor grad allerede har skjedd. For å komme seg rundt dette faktumet henfaller han til "No true Scotsman"-argumentet; det vil si han hevder at de muslimene som er moderate rett og slett ikke er muslimer, slik at hele utsagnet blir en tautologi; en helt banal sannhet som ikke sier noenting. Denne sirkulære argumentasjonen har noen av dagens Islam-kritikere en forkjærlighet for, og det er svært uheldig.

Det som virkelig får alarmklokkene mine til å ringe, er dog det han sier under. Her må han ha røkt noe han ikke hadde godt av:
Deadness. That is what I see in Muslims here. Which is why I call them manqués -- human in form, but otherwise lifeless inside. Soulless and incomplete, from choice. Zombies who wish to feast on the flesh of the living.

Når noen begynner å hevde at meningsmotstandere ikke er mennesker, er det på tide å pakke sammen. Dette er menneskefiendtlig retorikk i lånte liberale klær.

DAWN.com, September 29, 2010: UNITED NATIONS: Kings, emirs and presidents from Muslim nations have made pressing appeals to the United Nations for the West to clampdown on attacks on Islam which they warned is a growing threat to international security. In speeches to the UN General Assembly, leaders said that “Islamophobia” was causing a growing Muslim-West divide and one top Arab minister put the international community on guard against a “civilization clash” - West warned that Islam insults risk ‘civilization clash’

The "Islamophobia" Weapon

Innlegg Panther 15 Okt 2010, 19:45

http://www.capitalismmagazine.com/war-peace/islamic-jihad/6101-The-Islamophobia-Weapon.html

15 October 2010 Robert Spencer

How the Organization of the Islamic Conference and its allies are using charges of “Islamophobia” as a weapon to advance the jihad.


It is not at all established that “Islamophobia” really is growing. In fact, the FBI has recently released data establishing that hate crimes against Muslims are comparatively rare. But if there is any actual suspicion of or negative feelings toward Muslims in the United States, it is solely and wholly the responsibility of Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood jihadist; Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Christmas underwear jihadist; Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who killed one soldier and murdered another in a jihad shooting outside a military recruiting station in Little Rock, Ark.; Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square jihadist; Khaled Sheikh Mohammed and Osama bin Laden on 9/11; the London jihad bombers of July 7, 2005; and so many others.

Yet Ihsanoglu, with an evasion of responsibility that is characteristic of Islamic supremacists, pretends that non-Muslims are growing more suspicious of Muslims and Islam not because of this, but because of some gratuitous bigotry. This is a tried and tested tactic, designed precisely to divert attention from Islamic jihad attacks and to shame and discredit those who would dare stand up to jihad (both violent and stealth) and Islamic supremacism in the West.

Without any reference to the pandemic of jihad violence either in the U.S. or worldwide, Ihsanoglu referred instead to a “pandemic of Islam vilification” in the U.S. and Europe, and declared: “We need an all inclusive effort of OIC member states to stem this menace. That is why I firmly believe that this question of Islamophobia should figure prominently on the agenda of all OIC member states whenever they deal with their Western counterparts.”

What Ihsanoglu and the OIC want Western states to do is limit the freedom of speech regarding Islam and jihad. In 2008 he issued a dictatorial warning: “We sent a clear message to the West regarding the red lines that should not be crossed” regarding free speech about Islam and terrorism. And he reported success: “The official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues. They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.”

According to the survey, majorities in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and Nigeria would favor changing current laws to allow stoning as a punishment for adultery, hand amputation for theft and death for those who convert from Islam to another religion.

20 January 2011 Robert Spencer

What would it take for you to commit mass murder in the name of Allah?


Would you do it for money? For love? Out of a sense of justice? Out of a sense of religious duty?

Absurd as they may seem, these are serious questions, for as jihad mass-murder plots are being uncovered in the United States more frequently than ever, those accused of perpetrating them, and several Islamic groups, increasingly are charging entrapment: that overzealous FBI agents pushed poor innocent Muslims into taking part in a jihad plot that otherwise would never have existed.

And so it was [on Tuesday, December 18, 2010], when a 21-year-old convert to Islam, Antonio Martinez (who now calls himself Muhammad Hussain), faced a federal grand jury and was charged with attempted murder of members of the U.S. military (which he sees as an enemy of Islam), along with attempting to set off a weapon of mass destruction.

The newly minted Muhammad Hussain's defense attorney, Joseph Balter, declared that his client would "vigorously contest the charges," and was considering claiming entrapment. The same possibility has been raised in the case of Mohamed Mohamud, a Muslim in Portland, Ore., who tried to murder those who had gathered for the city's Christmas tree lighting ceremony.


These increasingly common charges of entrapment should be seen for what they are: yet another attempt to divert attention from the ugly reality of Islamic jihad activity in the United States and around the world, and to place the responsibility for jihadist misdeeds upon non-Muslims -- specifically the ones who are trying to thwart the jihadists' plans. After September 11, 2001, we were assured again and again that the vast majority of Muslims in the United States and worldwide were peaceful, and sincerely condemned such violence perpetrated in the name of their religion. Yet more than nine years later, we still have yet to see a sincere and effective effort within mosques to expose and report those who hold to the beliefs that led to those attacks.

Instead, we get more finger-pointing. And that means we will also get more jihad.

The Myth That Muslims Are Being Victimized In America Today

Innlegg Panther 23 Jan 2011, 17:34

http://www.capitalismmagazine.com/war-peace/islamic-jihad/6240-the-myth-that-muslims-are-being-victimized-in-america-today.html

23 January 2011 Robert Spencer

That anything remotely resembling the epidemic Muslim persecution of Christians is happening to Muslims in America is a sheer fantasy out of the fever swamps of the Left.

"Attacks on the American Muslim community and on Islam rose to an unprecedented level in 2010." So claimed Nihad Awad, national executive director of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in an end-of-the-year fund-raising appeal. The hard-Left TPMMuckraker site claimed that in 2010, "America saw perhaps its worst outbreak of Islamophobia since the attacks." The secretary general of the 56-state Organization of the Islamic Conference, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, asserted recently that "Islam and Muslims are under serious attack, and Islamophobia is growing and becoming more rampant and dangerous by the day."

But is it true?

One might get the impression from all this that Muslims were huddled in their homes, cowering in the darkness as roving bands of Islamophobes marauded outside, throttling any hapless Believers who dared to stray outside. Meanwhile, rogue judges, sputtering with hate, sentence Muslims to onerous stretches in the pen for the mildest of offenses, and law enforcement officials harass and intimidate law-abiding, patriotic citizens for the crime of sporting what Juan Williams piquantly referred to as "Muslim garb."

One would think that on the streets of Toledo and Des Moines, Muslims are being grabbed on their way to mosque, forced to choke down pork chops wrapped in Koranic verses, and then sent on their way -- only to find their mosque firebombed and hordes of angry Christians ringing its charred foundation, chanting obscene limericks making fun of Muhammad.


CAIR knows well that victimhood is big business: Insofar as CAIR can convince the public and law enforcement officials that Muslims are being mistreated in America, CAIR can claim protected victim status for Muslims, and use that to deflect unwanted scrutiny and any honest examination of how jihadists use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and supremacism. That's most likely why the claims of pandemic "Islamophobia" have become so common from CAIR and its allies and dupes. They want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they can use them as weapons to intimidate people into remaining silent about the jihad threat.

It is false that attacks on the American Muslim community have risen significantly; it is true, however, that jihad attacks by members of the American Muslim community have risen significantly. That should be enough to end Islamic advocacy groups' spurious victimhood posturing, self-pity, and demands for special accommodation. But it won't be.

Islam Plus Democracy Equals Islam

Innlegg Panther 17 Feb 2011, 19:49

http://www.capitalismmagazine.com/war-peace/islamic-jihad/6266-islam-plus-democracy-equals-islam.html

16 February 2011 Edward Cline

Strip Islam of its appeal to collective superiority – the creed of the second-hander – rip out Sharia law, and what would be its appeal? Why not just join the Amish, or the Mennonites, or the Scientologists? Islamism is Islam, and cannot be reformed. It can only be repudiated and abandoned. The trouble is with religion per se, and not its assimilative capacity with “democracy” or with any other political system.

In a February 9th interview of Middle East expert Daniel Pipes by Yosef Rapaport, “Analyzing the Turmoil (in Egypt),” Pipes reveals that while he has an intimate and comprehensive knowledge of Islam and Mideast history and affairs, he is sadly and dangerously ignorant of political philosophy. Pipes’ blog site also carries commentaries by guest columnists who echo his fallacies. In this interview, Pipes offers his views on the prospects of Egypt becoming a “democracy.”

One can appreciate Pipes’ assessment of Egypt and the “regime change” there, and certainly respect his appraisal of Islam and the Mideast, but I shudder every time I encounter an otherwise intelligent and knowledgeable person employing the term “democracy” so carelessly. It is as though Pipes (and many, many others) had never read what the American Founders and Framers had to say about “democracy.” They feared and loathed democracy. Democracy, they saw in history, was always an overture to tyranny of one kind or another. Democracy was and remains mob rule. The purpose of the Founders and Framers was to establish an individual rights-protecting republic, one that would be proof against the whims and fashions of mobs, majorities, and power-seeking politicians.

Democracy, for example, is a state or local government banning smoking in private restaurants and bars, because some group with political pull wanted it that way; or Obama patronizing millions of people who want lower health-care costs and endorsing socialized medicine legislation; or state or municipal governments banning plastic (or paper) bags in supermarkets to curry favor with environmentalists. The instances of “democracy” in action are legion, and they all depend on the employment of government force and the diminishment of individual rights.

Democracy is not just about “free elections.” What would people vote for in these elections? What would be legitimate issues that could be voted on, and what would not be legitimate issues? Democracy makes no distinctions between these things. Regarding “democracy” a kind of stable political environment that sort of promotes freedom and does not require armies of police to regulate it – such as in the U.S. – is a rather sloppy concept of “good” government. Democracy cannot be equated with limited government. Democracy means unlimited government.

But “free elections” in a politically backward country such as Egypt usually means the last election, replaced with farces such as the “free elections” in Iran. The only country in the Mideast that has “free elections” is Israel.

An email with photographs of pro-Islamic protesters in England displays the following signs and slogans of the protesters:

"Freedom Go to Hell"

Now that's interesting. These pro-Iranian and pro-Islamic dictatorship protesters want freedom to do what they please. They want freedom not just to advocate and practice their religious beliefs, but also to prevent those with different (or no) religious beliefs from having any freedom at all. How can you condemn freedom so unequivocally while at the same time depending on it to do what you want? The protester should make his sign more honest. It should read: "Freedom for Me, Destruction for Anyone Who Disagrees With Me."


"Slay Those Who Insult Islam"

Why so sensitive, dear Muslim radicals? You claim that an all-knowing and all-powerful force -- "Allah" -- is on your side. Why are you so threatened by any hint of even perceived disagreement or lack of faith by the infidels? Isn't your god figure more powerful than that? Doesn't your god figure, and his believers here on earth, have far more important things to worry about than whether a cartoon published in a still-free country implies a mockery or disagreement with Islam? Get a life -- or more precisely, get an eternal life. You claim to already have one. Why don't you get on your way, and give the rest of us who value life on earth a chance to be left alone? If it’s eternal life you want, then go for it. Kill yourselves now. We surely don’t want to stop you.

The Symbiosis Between Islam and Multiculturalism
23 March 2011 Edward Cline

Without the “conditioning” of men’s minds to uncritically accept multiculturalism in the broader culture – in schools, in business, in art, in language, in advertising – Islam, for one, would never have had a chance to become the formidable enemy it has become.

We begin with a brief description of the origins of multiculturalism by Lewis Loffin, in his article, “The Nazi Roots of Multiculturalism,” about the deleterious effects of multiculturalism. He wrote:

The origin of multiculturalism (a secular/leftist belief system) lies with two Nazis, Martin Heidegger and Paul de Man. National Socialism is also another leftist belief system. Their philosophy became the basis of Deconstructionism, an irrational belief system that rejects facts for feelings. The French philosopher Jacques Derrida (1930 - 2004) introduced the term, but he was influenced by Heidegger.


Mark Steyn, an irrepressible critic and opponent of Islam and champion of the West, noted during a panel discussion:

“You can’t be ‘multicultural’ in Saudi Arabia.”

He might have added: nor in Iran, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Somalia, the Sudan, Morocco, Algeria, Gaza, the West Bank, and Turkey.

What did he mean? He meant that Islam is a head-to-toe political/theological totalitarian ideology that commands universal submission and uniformity in all that it surveys, from one’s diet and personal relationships to one’s political views.

Slowly the peril is sinking into the heads of policymakers and some politicians. German Chancellor Angela Merkel broke ranks last year and declared that multiculturalism was a failure. France’s Nicolas Sarkozy and Britain’s David Cameron soon after said, “Me, too.”


Muslims are not the only collectivists who have been “liberated” from the responsibilities of individualism and the non-negotiable demands of reason. But they are the most dangerous in terms of their being passive or active vessels of a totalitarian ideology that will destroy by exploiting the corruption instigated by multiculturalists, or by continuing naked violence whose cause the multiculturalists do not wish to examine, because that would be “judgmental.”

Your average Muslim is morally superior to Mohammad, they’re individuals who may or may not be a problem. It is Islam's consistent practitioners -- organized Islam -- that is the problem.

A is A. Islam is Islam. There is no such thing as 'Good' Islam vs 'Bad' Islam.

Islam is a totalitarian religion, but Muslims are individual human beings who may or may not practice their religion. One way I’ve been putting it recently is that your average Muslim is morally superior to Mohammad, they’re individuals who may or may not be a problem. It is Islam's consistent practitioners -- organized Islam -- that is the problem.

There are active Muslims and there are passive Muslims, the faithful and the unfaithful within the religion, but there is no obvious way to tell the difference between them, which has its benefits for those who are committed to spreading Islam by any means necessary, since they can hide among their less devout co-religionists. Mohammed said “War is deceit” and his most devout followers have misled non-Muslims about the true nature of Islam to this day. When Islam, the very antithesis of peace, is sold to us by Muslims and Islamophiles as being the very definition of peace, and this Big Lie actually gains traction, it would have made Hitler blush. But even Muslims who have a moderate knowledge of their religion understand that Islam must be misrepresented to appear at all appealing to non-Muslims, so to that extent, they’re in on this Islamically sanctioned deceit.

Islam's Viral Stasis

Innlegg Panther 04 Jun 2011, 11:09

http://www.capitalismmagazine.com/culture/religion/6439-islam-s-viral-stasis.html

3 June 2011 Edward Cline

Islam fosters cultural, political, and economic stagnation because individualism is an anathema to it. An absence of freedom of speech inculcates minds that lack any measure of intellectual vigor in any realm of human action, whether in politics, science, or art.

Two recent, contrasting analyses of Islam – or rather, of the Islamic “mindset” that governs the behavior of Muslims – help to identify the problem with the ideology. One is “Why Muslim cultures lag behind,” by “Anti-Jihadist” on Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch. The second is by Daniel Greenfield on Sultan Knish, “Will Islam Destroy Itself?” Both articles discuss what can be described as Islam’s state of stasis, or moral, political, and cultural stagnation. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary best indicates the phenomenon:

Stasis: a: a state of static balance or equilibrium; stagnation b: a state or period of stability during which little or no evolutionary change in a lineage occurs.


That Islam fosters stagnation in its adherents’ cultures is an observable given. Islam has not changed in any fundamental respect since its founding in the 7th century. It has simply been refined in its details and interpreted to govern all human action, regardless of race, region, or nation. Christianity and Judaism underwent changes that made them tolerant of secular, exo-religious values, such as freedom of speech. Men who saw no value in stagnation, who wished to exercise their minds and be free to act, waged a long and bloody conflict with religious and political authority in the West, and won. If the Church claimed it ruled men to save their immortal souls, men replied that their souls were not the Church’s to save.

Islam cannot cede such an argument. There are no doctrinaire loopholes in the system. It is all-encompassing, and allows no exceptions to its rule. To be “saved” by Islam is to submit to it without reason and in every particular. Your “soul” is Allah’s to save or to condemn.


I agree with Greenfield that Islam must at some point disintegrate and self-destruct. But that may not happen until it has made too many inroads in a Western culture that denies its own exceptionalism, a culture that once upheld reason, individualism, and freedom as its distinctive and empowering virtues. Islam must first succeed in corrupting the spirit of its enemies before it rots itself. Islam is a parasite; it can make progress only by grace of the timidity of its adversaries and the mindless, obedient plain song of its billion-plus collect. It derives its strength from the weakness and cowardice and compromise of its enemies. If Islam succeeds in conquering the West, it can only die with it. The most rabid of its advocates know this. They are death worshipers. A Dark Age is the only cultural environment they will feel comfortable in.

Islam is otherwise impotent.

Islam the Alien

8 July 2011 Edward Cline

Islam is such a unique, unprecedented peril that one ignores it at one’s own peril.

For me, most science fiction stories have a credibility problem. But the one branch of it whose premise I have always rejected is that alien life could be both malevolent and technologically advanced enough to embark on interstellar conquests. Films such as Predator and Independence Day – just two of the more popular instances of the genre among many – portray aliens stalking man as a species of game or subjugating or extinguishing him. The premise that projects the possibility of these creatures is that a preeminently hostile, anti-life-form could somehow apply reason to create spaceships and sophisticated weaponry.

However, life-forms so malevolent would never rise from the rank swamps that bred them to go zipping around star systems and blasting planets to atoms. Malevolence is not a progenitor of innovation or creation. It is fundamentally a parasite and can thrive only on a passive or willing host. Reason is not an attribute or a handmaiden of evil. Evil in fact can only exploit the products of reason, but never originate them. Evil men or evil aliens may exhibit intelligence, but not reason. They can exploit what reason has caused to exist, but never bring it into existence

Ugly predators and slimy aliens that can invent cloaking devices and disintegrating rays are possible in imagination only because of a fantastic, and possibly even fatal, fallacy. Their creators – and their fans – assume that reason is not the natural antithesis and enemy of anti-reason, but a morally neutral faculty that can ally itself with anti-reason in campaigns of conquest and death.

Not so coincidentally, the fallacy also explains the left’s hostility to freedom and capitalism. Capitalists, they say, have the freedom to employ reason to create things, and then use their profits to establish power and enslave everyone.
