Time to Fight Back in the Holy War of Islamism
"Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah," proclaims the terrorist group Hamas on its Al-Aqsa TV station. Bosnian Muslim soccer fans joined a pro-Palestinian demonstration whose chants included "Kill the Jews." Here is a video in which a Palestinian imam brandishes a knife and exhorts his followers to stab Jews, and here is another in which an Islamist in Fort Lauderdale calls for Jews to go back to the ovens.
The treatment of Christians in Islamist-dominated nations is meanwhile well known. ISIS is painting the Arabic letter nun, for Nazarene, on Christian homes the way Nazis once put yellow Stars of David on Jewish-owned homes and businesses. Islamists throughout the Middle East and Central Asia are beheading and crucifying the Christians they don't use as slaves. Islamists in London meanwhile praised Osama bin Laden and said they would take European women as war booty.
Europe is inexplicably importing even more Muslims who proclaim openly that their ideology gives them the Allah-given right to kill, rob, rape, and/or enslave those not like themselves, including the wrong kinds of Muslims. Germany is even evicting its own citizens from their apartments to make room for them. You can take the Muslim out of the Islamic State but you cannot take the Islamic State out of the IS Muslim, as shown by the honor killing of a rape victim in Germany. The Obama Administration meanwhile wants to import hundreds if not thousands of school shootings, Fort Hood massacres, Boston Marathon bombings, and 9/11s waiting for times and places to happen.
Militant Islamists have declared open war on the entire civilized world, which gives us both the right and the duty to destroy their entire ideology and, if Islam cannot reform itself, the entire Islamic religion. The instant you (the Islamist) use your Koran, your prophet, and your deity to menace us with physical harm and/or violation of our human rights, the inherent right of self-defense entitles us to destroy all three. This does not mean a Koran-burning or cute pictures of Mohammed, but rather the deployment of effective arguments to get your followers to walk away from your system in disgust, and possibly rip you to pieces for deceiving them.
If this seems unfair to decent Muslims, remember that an oncologist must often remove the healthy parts of a diseased organ along with the cancer. The risk of doing otherwise is simply too great. Millions of Muslims throughout the world already practice a civilized religion that retains the positive and constructive aspects of Mohammad’s original creation while discarding the negative and violent ones. These Muslims are our friends, and the mufsidun or evildoers would kill them for being the wrong kinds of Muslims as readily as they would kill us for being Jews or Christians. There is nothing, however, to stop a Muslim Martin Luther from creating an Islamic faith as different from Islamism as Protestantism is from Catholicism as the latter was practiced during the Middle Ages.
If the prospect of destroying Islam sounds unrealistic, remember the following: (1) Martin Luther's effective use of the newly-invented printing press came close to destroying the most powerful religious institution of his era, and would have done so had the Church not also adopted the new propaganda weapon. (2) Islamists and their stooges, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, are demanding that social media avenues such as Facebook censor derogatory remarks about Islamism. (Before Mark Zuckerberg acts favorably on this, he needs to ask how many users, and therefore how much revenue, he can expect to lose to the competing social networking services that will spring up to fill the gap.) Islamists are also demanding "hate speech" laws to criminalize negative material about Islamism, which shows unequivocally that they know they will lose an open exchange of facts and ideas. Now let's put this into practice.
A Behavioral Choice is not a Race
The Left's standard reaction to condemnation of militant Islam is to accuse the critics of racism and hate speech. The ADL, for example, accuses people like Geert Wilders and Pamela Geller of "anti-Muslim bigotry." This tactic is similar in principle to those of mounted lancers in the horse and musket era, and it is equally suicidal against an opponent who knows his work.
The prospect of being run through with a lance, with perhaps a thousand pounds of man and horse behind it, is instinctively terrifying. George S. Patton Jr. said of this, however, "The only moment of danger is when the point of the lance comes within the first reach of the fully extended saber. If, at that moment, the swordsman lunges, forcing the lance to the outside, he is safe and the lancer is at his mercy." A lance relies almost entirely on psychological intimidation while a saber in the hand of a mounted swordsman who knows how to use it kills. The Earl of Uxbridge put it as follows in Sharpe's Waterloo: "Once you get past the lance point, it's like killing rabbits."
When the Left bleats "racism," it similarly bluffs and intimidates with a weapon that relies entirely on intimidation rather than substance. The parry and lethal repost are simple: "A behavioral choice is not a race." Islamists come in all colors, and most of the troublemakers throughout the Middle East are Caucasians. The savages who are hanging gay people and stoning women to death in Iran are genuine Aryans or Indo-Europeans.
An Ideology is not a Religion
Islamism also gets away with (literally) murder because most of us are raised to respect the religious faiths of others, but an ideology is not a religion. Islamism is simply Nazism with a crescent rather than a swastika and, before anybody invokes Godwin's Law, here is the proof:
- Both ideologies define their members as superior: the Herrenvolk or Master Race, and the Dar-al-Islam or House of Submission.
- Both ideologies define non-members as inferiors: Untermenschen or subhumans, and kafirs and infidels.
- Both ideologies claim the right to kill, rape, rob, and/or enslave those they deem inferior. Islamism adds that kafirs and infidels, including the wrong kinds of Muslims, are part of the Dar-al-Harb or House of War. If Islamists want war, we need to give it to them until their ideology is no more socially acceptable than Nazism.
- Nazism and Islamism both claim the right to rule the world. "Islam will dominate the world." The Palestinian Mickey Mouse clone Farfur says, in fact, "We are setting with you the cornerstone for world leadership under Islamic leadership." This sounds very familiar. Anjem Choudary adds similarly that Islam will dominate the world.
- The Nazis used the Hitler Youth to indoctrinate children, while the Palestinian TV show Pioneers of Tomorrow (starring Farfur) indoctrinates children to hate infidels and become suicide bombers.
- The ideologies behind Nazism and Islamism are described in Mein Kampf and the Koran respectively.
The only significant difference between this video and this one seems to be that the Nazis are far more disciplined, and are wearing caps or helmets instead of towels on their heads. Islamism and Nazism differ significantly in only two respects: (1) Aryan women are members of the Master Race while women in fundamentalist Islamic countries are chattel property like livestock, and (2) Hitler never raped a nine year old girl (so far as we know).
Target the Religious Foundations of Islamism
Evangelist Jack Chick, who learned the effectiveness of cartoon leaflets from the Chinese, has some excellent, factual, and objective material. One does not have to believe in Chick's theology to use it to demolish Islamism's religious foundation. Here are some other key arguments:
- Jesus died for Christians, Muslims died for Mohammad. In India, by the way, Vishnu died for Hindus, Muslims died for Mohammad. Mohammad obviously created his own religion to get his deluded followers to murder and die for his personal benefit.
- Why is Islamism the only "religion" that has to use violence to convince people to join and compel them to stay? If Islam is really superior to Christianity, why does Islam have to persecute and kill anybody who witnesses for Jesus? What do Christians have to say that the mullahs and ayatollahs are afraid their minions might hear?
- The Koran defines Allah as the greatest of deceivers, as in the Father of Lies. What other modern religion worships a god who lies?
- Islamism promises shahids or martyrs a giant whorehouse in the sky where Allah provides them with beautiful women. A good PsyWar cartoon might therefore add the caption "Allah, as defined by Hamas and ISIS," to a public domain picture of a pimp.
- If Allah is all-knowing and all-powerful, and his followers are the Master Ideology, why do infidel nations such as the United States, Japan, and Israel have much higher standards of living than even oil-rich Islamic nations? Why do Palestinians live in squalor while Israelis, who are equally poor in natural resources, have one of the most advanced societies on earth? Why are the world's 1.5 billion Muslims so underrepresented among Nobel Prize winners? If Muslims ask these questions of their leaders, they will discover quickly that their leaders have no answers.
The bottom line is that the things that happened in Germany during the 1930s are happening again throughout the world, but this time with a Koran rather than a swastika. The civilized world needs to stop this agenda, and stop it hard.
