About Islam - Western Leaders Are Either Ignorant, Liars, Or Fools...
Opinion Editorialist for
‘THE BOTTOM LINE’
When it comes to the connection between Islam and violence against non-Muslims, one fact must’ be embraced: The majority of those in positions of leadership and authority in the West are either willfully ignorant/blind, or they are liars or fools, or, all of the above. No other alternative exists.
I’m not pointing any fingers or anything, but if you look closely, you might find at least two examples of those in the above picture.
The reason for this raw uncharitable assertion is simple: Islam was once a faraway, exotic Eastern religion, today we hear calls for, and see acts of, violence committed in its name—or the name of its demonic deity “Allahu Akbar!”—practically every day and practically everywhere in the world. And many of us still have “ears that hear and eyes that see.” Or’ maybe not so much!
It might be because we haven’t read the Quran! But few, including many so-called moderate Muslims have ever read the Quran to discover what it really says…
It’s no secret: Muslims from all around the world and from all walks of life—not just “terrorists” or “ISIS”—unequivocally and unapologetically proclaim that Islam commands them to hate, subjugate and kill all who resist it, including all non-Muslim “infidels or Kaffaar’s.” This is the official position of several Muslim governments, including America’s so-called closest “friends and allies,” like Saudi Arabia and Qatar; it’s the official position of Islamic institutions of lower and higher learning—from Bangladeshi schools to Egypt’s Al Azhar, the world’s most prestigious Islamic university; and it’s the official position broadcasted in numerous languages on Islamic satellite stations that air into Muslim homes around the world. They’ have read the Quran and so they lie! It’s what the Quran tells them to do…Read it and discover the truth.
In short, there is just no excuse today for ignorance about Islam—especially for those in positions of leadership or authority. Yet it is precisely they who most vehemently, stubbornly and blindly deny any connection between Islam and violence. Why? It’s because they haven’t read the Quran!
You have instead, listened to the evil witch, MY PRETTY!
One of the most recent examples took place on July 18 in Germany. An axe-wielding Muslim so-called moderate refugee attacked a number of train passengers and critically injured three. And even though an ISIS flag was found in his room, and he called for the slaughter of any Muslim who dares leave Islam, and he yelled “Allahu Akbar”—Islam’s unequivocal war-cry of death to the Kaffaar—authorities claimed“ it was too early to speculate about the motives of the attacker.” Maybe that’s the problem, stop speculating and start paying attention to the FACTS. Or don’t we do that anymore? They’ haven’t read the Quran!
Catholic Bishop Friedhelm Hofmann of Wuerzburg, where the axe attack took place, was bewildered: He said, “One is speechless at such a moment. This fact cannot be understood.” Instead of being vigilant around Muslim migrants, he suggested, “Maybe we need to help the unaccompanied young refugees even more, and help them to overcome their own traumas.” He’ has not read the Quran!
About a month earlier in Germany, this same scene played itself over and over: while screaming “Allahu Akbar” and “infidels must die,” another Muslim man in another train station stabbed to death one man and injured three others. Still, German authorities “found no evidence of Islamist motive.” They…haven’t read the Quran!
In neighboring France—which has “Europe’s largest Muslim minority” and is also (of course) the “most threatened country” teetering on the precipice of becoming an Islamic State—this sequence of events (a Muslim attack in the name of Islam, authorities claim difficulty in finding “a motive”) is becoming pervasive. On July 19, a Muslim man vacationing with his pregnant wife and children stabbed a neighboring woman and her three daughters for being “scantily dressed.” Of course scantily dressed in Islam is any female not clad in a tent called a Burqa. The youngest girl, 8, was in critical condition with a punctured lung. And the authorities again were confused as to what possible motive could this Muslim Jihadist terrorist have for this kind of behavior??? Read the bloody Quran!
Although this is a common occurrence throughout the Muslim world—many Muslim women don the hijab precisely because they know the consequences of not doing so in public. They have read the Quran!—and although French television was bold enough to say that the man, named Mohamed B, 37, “may have acted out of religious motives,” local mayor, Edmond Francou, said he preferred “not to speculate about the motive of the attack.” There is that word again SPECULATE. To speculate or not to speculate that is the question. Read the Quran that is the answer.
A few days earlier another “Allahu Akbar” screaming Muslim Jihadist killed 84 people in Nice. Yet according to French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, the killer’s “motives [were] not yet established.” Asked if he could at least confirm the attacker’s motives were linked to jihadism, he said, “No.” He’… has not read the Quran!
The media giant Reuters, went so far as to write an article blaming France for its own terrorization. Well good for Reuters…I did that 11 years ago.
Turning to the United States, one finds the same brain-dead response, Why is that’, you might ask? Because we have the same Jihadists terrorist Muslims who read the same Quran! Most recently a Muslim man went into a homosexual nightclub in Orlando Florida, and killed 49 people. Despite the fact that ISIS regularly kills homosexuals and that the killer—who “recited prayers to Allah during the attack”—and pledged his allegiance to ISIS, “Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that the investigation is still ongoing, and a motive has yet to be established.” She has not read the Quran! Or’, she lies!
And don’t forget that “the FBI was confused about Mateen’s motive,” In the Boston Marathon Bombing! In the weeks and months that followed the bombing, investigators attempted to understand the two brothers’ motives. The FBI has not read the Quran.
Earlier this year, Edward Archer, a convert to Islam, shot and wounded Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett. He later explained his motive: “I follow Allah. I pledge my allegiance to the Islamic state. That is why I did what I did.” Yet after showing a surveillance video of Archer in Islamic dress shooting at Hartnett, Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney emphatically declared: “In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen….It is abhorrent. It is terrible and it does not represent the religion or any of its teachings. This is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers. It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.” Oh Yeah! He has diffidently not read the Quran!
One can go on and on. From California alone: Despite the evidence that the Muslim couple that massacred 14 people in San Bernardino was motivated by Islamic teachings of jihad against the hated “infidel,” Obama claimed “We do not know their motivations.” He as read the Quran and does what it tells him to do…lie!
Chris Hayes and MSNBC were also “baffled” in their search for a motive. He has not read the Quran!
Despite the many indicators that the Muslim student who went on a stabbing spree in UC Merced was described as a “devout Muslim,” had an ISIS flag, and praised Allah in his manifesto—“local and federal authorities insisted that Faisal Mohammad, 18, carried out the vicious attack because he’d been banished from a study group.”
……….Riiight………….What’s a study group?
They haven’t read the Quran!
Despite the fact that a man named “Jihad” (which should be a red flag) went to an El Monte police station, where he “used the words claiming this is ‘jihad’ several times” while making a bomb threat, police “so far are scratching their heads, and saying they don’t have a motive.” They haven’t read the Quran!
Most politicians—practically every Democrat but also a majority of Republicans, with the notable exception, and that is Donald Trump—make the same ignorant claims. Because they haven’t read the Quran!
This begins with your Muslim. President Barrack Hussein Obama who insists that the Islamic State “is not Islamic.”What is it then Obama’, the girl scouts? Of course the fact that he is a Muslim one would expect that. He calls for the “rejection by non-Muslims of the ignorance that equates Islam with terror,” and classified the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence,” despite the overwhelming evidence that it was jihad perpetrated again by a Muslim shouting Allahu Akbar. He has read the Quran! So He lies…
And then there is Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who admonished us to bear in mind that “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people, and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” She may not have read the Quran! But lies anyway.
Republican leaders like John McCain gush about how “unequivocally, without a doubt, the religion of Islam is an honorable and reasonable religion. And ISIS has nothing to do with the reality of Islam.” He has not read the Quran!
So-called “Conservative” talking heads like Bill O’Reilly flippantly dismiss jihad as “a perversion of Islam, we all know that.” He says. Well he knows that because a lying Muslim told him so. He’ has not read the Quran!
Read what the Quran says about how to treat Christians, Jews and all non-Muslims:
Quran 8:12 “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and every finger of them.” As far as Jihad is being interpreted as a “Personal Struggle”. Ask yourself what that struggle is. You will find it in the Quran as the Islamic struggle for World Domination and subjugation of all people under Sharia. It is no coincidence that Islam is no different than Nazism, Mein Kampf, written by Adolph Hitler, also means “My Struggle” with the same evil ideology.
Consider an analogy: What if zoos began to maintain that it’s a slanderous stereotype and you’re a bigot and a lionaphobe if you say that all lions by nature prey on zebras! Even though that is what is says in the lion book. So Zoos start introducing lions into zebra enclosures. Of course the inevitable happens, although well fed, some lions continue chasing and mauling zebras. Surely only a great fool would blame such carnage on lions—who, after all, are merely being lions—while at the same time ignoring those who insisted on placing lions with zebras in the first place.
In the end, the relationship between Islam and the West is understood by the dichotomy of the will and the way. The West has the way—including the military and economic might—to utterly neutralize Islam, one way or the other. Yet it doesn’t even have the will to preserve itself. Ban Islam’s presence from the West as Donald Trump suggested—which is doable, provided the will was there—and Islamic terrorism on Western soil ceases to be problematic.
What is the matter with these PEOPLE???
What is to be made of all these claims from our so-called “leaders” that fly in the face of all intelligent reality? Only immensely deranged or immensely deceitful people can claim that a Muslim who cites the Quran and calls on Allah is not acting in the name of Islam. Or are they just mentally, psychologically and/or spiritually blind? If so how did that happen?
Take your pick, but there are no other alternatives folks. (Note: When I make this argument, some ignorant people invariably rebut me by saying that there are other alternatives—that such people are too “craven”, that they’ve been bought and paid for, etc. But all these motivations nonetheless fall under the lying category, don’cha see.) Well…I hope you do.
I really don’t believe that anyone, who is still in touch with reality, and whose driveway still goes all the way to the road, could possibly deny that this is what is happening. Unless of course you are a Muslim and then you deny everything. The controversy shouldn’t be what, but WHY is it happening? If we can’t get passed the what, we certainly can’t get to the why and the solution to this problem, can we???
Regardless of the source of the narrative that defends Islam—stupidity, willful blindness, or deceitfulness—the same ignorance prevails and the same damage is done. Remember, Islam is not threatening the West due to its own innate capabilities, but because the West allows it. This is why America will become just another Islamic State. We will have enabled it.
Thus the real battle revolves around getting the West to see reality—a battle which involves rooting out the liars and fools from government, media, education, and other positions of influence—an admittedly herculean task, considering that the lie is now the narrative and truth is evil, intolerant, and bigoted.
I am convinced though, that logic and reason alone is not going to change minds or solve the terrorist problem either in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe or in the U.S.
THE BOTTOM LINE: So where did this inability to discern the truth in general begin and why? How do we get back to reality? Where is the undo button???
Beginning with the schools, 1962 was the beginning of removing God from Government and the public forum. Any major change always begins with education, or in this case, indoctrination. Robotically programming those little heads full of mush to tolerate, apologize for, and accept Islam as just a peaceful people that are just getting a bad rap from those nasty Christian right wing extremists. A little like getting the Zebras to accept the Lions as peaceful and harmless, what good would that do? It would only lead to annihilation of the Zebras. Need I say more?
Those little heads full of mush born in 1962 are now 54 years old and are now the leaders of the world in some fashion or another. Moreover their recording machines are now on playback, functioning as robots they reflect what they have been programmed with.
Without some kind of foundation in the knowledge and understanding of the one who created you and freely gave you all the rights and freedoms that we now enjoy, the indoctrinated robotic generation looks with dependency to the government for the answers. This being part of their programming they have never learned to think for themselves.
Oh it’s really that simple my friend.
And then the most important part is that this religions war with Islam, is a spiritual war. Literally a war between Good and Evil. Moreover, for 52 long years, public access to a spiritual relationship with God the Creator has been denied, leaving the new generation of politically correct programmed robots without the ability to spiritually discern the truth, ignorance abounds and deception is easy and enablement is the song of the day and destruction is the result.
One can argue until the U.S. becomes an Islamic State as to how we got here. But the proof would be in the putting as they say. That’s what I say…
Here is what God says: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (God in Second Chronicles 7:14 of his Book.) The people of America were once called by His Name! And we defeated our enemies and we prospered and lived free from fear and oppression.
One would think logically and reasonably, if we reversed course, and once again return to a Godly society we could once again live as a free blessed people in pursuit of happiness.
I’m just sayin…
For related reading, read a piece on the Jeremiah Project.
And a note to Christians: Get a Quran and a Hadith and read it. And no! Satan will not come along with it. They are just words in a book, you really will not be struck dead by the devil. Or’ go to Hell. You might have nightmares though…
Thanks for listening my friend!
