Non-Muslim Muslims and the Jihad Against the West

Pages: 1 2

Muslims who really care about Islam are part of an organized effort to spread Islam, and I sometimes refer to this collective effort by Muslims as “Organized Islam.” No matter the means involved, Muslims working towards a more Islamic world want the same thing the jihadists want. This organized effort includes Mosques, Muslim organizations, Muslim individuals writing books, blog posts, etc. And they all invariably engage in anti-Western, Anti-Israeli propaganda, at the very least.

I often hear that we should be working with the Muslim world. Working towards what? As Ayn Rand writes, “In any collaboration between two men (or two groups) who hold different basic principles, it is the more evil or irrational one who wins.” Any time we spend “working” with a culture that calls for our destruction, we are working towards our own destruction, consciously or not.

While it’s true that jihadists don’t represent most Muslims, they do represent Islam. But then why don’t most Muslims engage in jihad? Like in any culture, heroes are a small minority, and that goes for Islamic culture as well. The jihadists are Islam’s heroes; they are the ones most dedicated to following Allah’s commands and they’re celebrated in the Muslim world for it. They are also the only ones to whom Islam guarantees paradise. And their rarity was made even clearer when we learned that only the pilots of 9/11 knew it was a suicide mission. Our enemy knows that it’s tough to get even hardcore Muslims to sacrifice their lives for Islam, but they don’t want us to know that. Just as they don’t want us to know that behind their boast that they love death is the fact that they hate life.

And while Muslims who blow themselves up in order to kill non-Muslims are a small minority, Muslims who would explicitly condemn them are an even smaller minority. And while I think that Muslims are mere sheep to their Jihadist wolves, there are also too many Muslim cheerleaders for jihad. How many Muslims celebrated 9/11? Far too many. Even in my own lax Muslim upbringing in America, there was an omnipresent anti-Semitism and misogyny. Some members of my family admired Adolph Hitler, who I refer to as “Islam’s Favorite Infidel.” Regarding misogyny, the birth of a girl became a day of mourning for Muslim women in my family; they understood the suffering this girl would endure under Islam, even in America.

Though we say we’ve been at war for over ten years, we haven’t even begun to fight the war the way we should be fighting it. And those calling for a change within Islam during this war would be surprised at how much Islam can be changed through an honest war on our behalf. You can’t make a violent religion like Islam non-violent by argument, only by greater retaliatory force against state sponsors of jihad terrorism.

The future of Islam and the well-being of Muslims is said to be of importance to us. Post – 9/11, the defense of our culture, our values, our very lives has been optional, but our defense of Islam has been absolute. It began with Bush’s “Islam is peace” and it continues with Obama, who said in his Submission Speech in Egypt in 2009, in front of members of The Muslim Brotherhood, “I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” If only he felt the same about America.

We can’t be both for Islam and for ourselves. This enemy is fully on their own side and fully against us and they’ve made themselves believe that they’re the good guys and that we’re the bad guys, and our actions have done nothing but turn their hatred of us into an ever-deepening contempt. Before we see the enemy for what it is, we need to see ourselves for what we are. Only then can we, with full moral conviction, make them pay for what they’ve done and move us towards victory.

Our problem is not “Islamophobia”, but Islamophilia. It is this uncritical, uninformed, absolute defense of Islam by Western elites after 9/11 that I refer to as Islamgate. It’s a scandal for the ages that few involved would ever admit to being part of.

I care about the truth. I care about Western Civilization. I care about myself, my loved ones and my friends. I care about Iife. And that’s why I don’t care about Islam.

Our altruistic concern for the future and well being of the Muslim world has come at the expense of American lives and treasure. We’ve placed the well being of “The Muslim World” above our own self-defense. We’ve placed today’s Big Lie, “Islam means peace”, above the truth we need to act on. We’ve placed the lives of Muslim civilians above the lives of our soldiers, placing them in absolutely unnecessary danger in order to protect innocent (or even guilty) civilians. Our Rules of Engagement might as well be renamed the Golden Rules of Engagement, as our soldiers have been forced to treat the enemy the way we’d like to be treated. And the enemy takes full advantage of that, as they do of all of the policies our morally vain politicians have concocted. We need to shift the focus onto our own well-being at the enemy’s expense for a change.

We’ve tried everything since 9/11 except real war. War is the answer to Jihad.

So who cares about Islam? Muslims, Jihadists, Islamophiles, Leftists who naturally side with anti-American ideologies, guilt-ridden fellow travelers who think America is usually in the wrong, and religionists who believe any religion is better than none. But since Leftists and Islamophiles usually know very little about Islam, who truly cares about Islam? Those who are at war with us.

In the end, I care about Islam and the Muslim world as much as the Muslim world cares about America and the West. This is war. We can’t be on both sides. I’m not rooting for Islam or the Muslim world.

I’m rooting for us.

    Thank you for writing that. More essays of this nature need to be written by "recovering muslims" (a term I love), and as widely disseminated as possible.

    Never Forget, Never Forgive, Never Submit

    • old white guy

      taqiyya. one word that encompasses all so called muslims who say they are no longer muslims but still stick their arse in the air when they pray ro mecca. reject one verse from the koran and you are an apostate. death is your reward . there is no such critter as a moderate muslim. you either believe or you don't. I AM RIGHT.

    • aspacia

      I just viewed the Horowitz documentary regarding Obama and Israel. Included in this documentary there are numerous Muslim religious leaders, and children calling for genocide against all Jews. I suggest, you open your eyes, join Jasser to fight your violent brethren.

      I hope you realize your post is off topic regarding what I said.

      You sir are another Muslim apologist who will stand idly by while your brethren massacre infidels like me.

      • I_Marz

        My reply was to address specifically to word 'article', as Fawstin's piece does not constitute an article and secondly, though equally important, on propagating hate/war rather than peace & love…so I think I wasn't that much off topic.

        As for the Horowitz video, I hope you realize that IT IS a biased documentary again seeking to insight fear of Muslims & pity for Israel…in that sense it worked eh

        For every such documentary I can show one that show the opposite; Israelis teaching their kids to hate Arabs & even Christian camps in America doing the same…however the latter get less exposure.

        I spent the other night discussing with & reporting Utube account holders that propagate hate towards Christians…

        so no sir I do not stand idle in face of any injustice & fear/war mongering from anyone…

        however there are those who prefer to add gas to the fire, I would rather help put the fire out before it consumes the entire human race

        • aspacia

          Right, according to you logic all articles found in The New York Times must cite sources. Too funny, Friedman, Krugman and many well know writers either liberal or conservative often do not cites sources. You are picking nits.

          My claim revolves around fighting to win a war to win and the problems with the UN.

          The problems is you are not arguing against your brethren who call for genocide against all infidels. Why not focus on them if you have the courage, which I doubt.

          I would like to see these hate filled Jewish documentaries. If they are valid, which they probably are not, our liberal media would be all over these like flies on $h!t.

          Go into your mosque and tell your religious leader to promote peace and love to Jews and all infidels as Jasser does.

          I read and watch what your brethren in Egypt and the rest of the ME claim about Jews and the continual call for genocide. In the last 24 hours Ahmadinejad call for the genocide of all Jews: http://www.debka.com/article/21536/Why not fight this instead of wasting the time of patriotic U.S. citizens and Zionists.

  • Bamaguje

    The problem for Western leaders is what to do with 1.3 billion potential terrorists (Muslims) if they acknowledge Islam is barbaric, intolerant and inherently violent.
    Rather than deal with the scary nightmare, denial is preferable.
    So for the clueless politically correct non-Muslim leaders and lamestream media, its "See no Jihad, speak no Jihad and hopefully no Jihad would come upon us."

    • old white guy

  • MikeWood

    Beautifully and brilliantly expressed.

  • aspacia

    Excellent article. However, the U.S. has long been hampered by the UN and its bidding. We kept to the 38th parallel during the Korean War, which is still unresolved, ditto for Vietnam. Sure Gaddafi murdered 200+ innocents over Lockerbie, and others, but he did capitualate after Saddam's ouster.

    However, we do need NATO.

    My point is we have not, and probably will not fight a war for victory in the near future regardless of this necessity.

  • StephenD

    Confession:
    I dismissed you as a cartoonist with what I prejudged to be the limited intellect or interest of what a "comic book" could contain.
    Man, was I wrong!
    This is one of the best articles I've ever read on the subject. To me, this is exactly what is needed by ALL our policy makers and potential office holders. Our schools should have this as required reading.
    I salute you Mr. Fawstin and I can not and should not want to ever consider you in the same light as I had prior to this. My apologies ~ my lose to date.
    PLEASE get this to all media outlets, even those that may seem against you. You hold the truth here and that is one powerful motivator.

  • PaulW

    Wow, Bosch. As much as I love your graphic novels (which are quite powerful weapons against Islam in their own right), I think that your recent speeches and this BRILLIANT piece show that you are quickly becoming a true leader in the West's war against Islam!

    We MUST stop giving Islam a pass simply because it is a religion. Thank you for your bravery for telling the truth!

  • Sidney

    Totally brilliant article which i completely agree with and personally know to be true of Muslims. This man has 1.3 billion enemies plus sympathizers and comes out with this well packed bullet of education on what, next to knowing the true God, should be compulsory education. If one of these deluded individuals should execute him, he will have died as a true martyr, not a suicidal murderer.

    • I_Marz

      correction 2 billion! & he's still alive eh….you guys are too silly to take seriously

    Muslims who are standing by while the Muslims who take Islam seriously practice holy war against us are not just some inanimate lump, who won't eventually become a problem for the West; they are standing pat until they see which way the game is going to go, then they'll follow the main chance. If the war goes favorably for Islam, they'll become more serious Muslims, if the war goes favorably for the West, they'll do something to inform the West they're with us.

  • Brujo Blanco

    As long as we tolerate, arm, and finance our enemies we will suffer.

  • Khan

    Again a misinformed person. No wonder he left Islam because from his arguements he didn’t have a proper upbringing and Muslim brothers. Just like a abusive drunk father experience that the son takes his anger out when he’s older at the father this person takes his anger out on Islam. But it doesn’t mean every father is like such nor is Islam. Yet to be anti-Islamic or Muslim is a lucrative business for people like this man. Ignorance will not be bliss especially an article like this.

    • StephenD

      Khan (or should I say Con), can you point out where what he said is wrong?
      Yeah…didn't think so.

      Tell me, when did you speak out concerning the FOGEL FAMILY MASSACRE?
      Yeah, you represent a worthwhile "religion" alright.

      Shouldn't you be off someplace marrying your niece or washing your feet to convince yourself you're doing what G_d wants you to do?

    • http://reasonversusmysticism.blogspot.com Burgess Laughlin

      Khan's argument commits the fallacy of ad hominem. That is illogical. To be illogical means having ideas disconnected from reality. And that is what Islam is, a worldview based on mysticism, not reason and reality.

      • Stephen_Brady

        Burgess, please note that I am not attacking you in this post. I wanted to clear up two points:

        The Ad Hominem Fallacy does not deal with "ideas disconnected from reality". Ad Hominems are a personal attack, when one cannot come up with a logical response to an argument, in debate.

        I only wish that Islam was a worldview based upon mysticism. However, the reality of Islam is that it is a secular worldview that makes use of religious beliefs to force adherence to secular authority. To that extent, it makes use of mysticism, but it is not based on mysticism.

      • I_Marz

        now this is where you are committing the same mistake as Khan. If you reseached Islam at all, you'll find that the Quran & Muslims believe in all prophets from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, to Mary & Jesus…ending with Mohamed and hence all three Monotheistic religions subscribe to the SAME God…mysticism not included ;)

    • tagalog

      You say, "Ignorance will not be bliss especially an article like this."

      What, do you have something planned for him? Is that a threat?

    • aspacia

      Oh, I guess the "magnificent 19" upper middle-class martyrs, and all the other 12+ million Muslim terrorists did not have a proper upbringing either. This, along with the numerous violent Imams preaching violence in the ME

      You are a worthless apologist. Fix you home before trying to fix our rather well-build, manicured homes.

      Most terrorists are well educated. Look at the doctors and engineers who actually commit terrorist acts.

      Your are the ignorant one who ignores the violence perpetrated by your brethren. Typical of a liberal you make excuses for bad behavior. What happens to those who behave badly in the ME?? Beheaded, maimed, flogged, stoned, gang raped in jail and other places.

      Just like millions of his brethren:

      EU: Half of Europeans say Islam is a religion of intolerance
      http://europenews.dk/en/node/50157

      The Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation published a study on intolerance and prejudice in Europe. The study "Intolerance, Prejudice and Discrimination" is available in German and English. I bring below the section relating to Muslims.

      After statistical testing, three statements were used to produce the anti-Muslim attitudes mean scale (Table 7, items 18 to 20). These cover the general impression that there are too many Muslims in the country, the charge that Muslims make too many demands, and broad-brush criticism of Islam as a religion of intolerance. Four further statements were surveyed in a random half of the sample. These cover a positive attitude that sees Muslims as an enrichment and the idea that there are great cultural differences between the majority society and Muslims, especially concerning attitudes towards women. We also surveyed the idea that Muslims generally support and condone terrorism.

      In most of the countries a majority believe Islam to be a religion of intolerance, with agreement just below 50 percent only in Great Britain and the Netherlands. In almost all the countries more than half of respondents said that Muslims make too many demands; Portugal was the only exception with about one third. The statement that there are too many Muslims in the country is affirmed by just over one quarter in Portugal and by about one third in France. In Germany, Great Britain, Italy and the Netherlands more than 40 percent of respondents complain that there are too many Muslims in their country, in Hungary about 60 percent.

      Interviewees were also asked to respond to four further statements covering perceived cultural differences and supposed affinity of Muslims toward terrorism (Table 7, items 22 to 25). Despite correlating closely with anti-Muslim attitudes these items represent separate constructs and were therefore excluded from the scale measure.

      The figures for those who say that Muslim culture is compatible with their own range from 17 percent in Poland and 19 percent in Germany to about half the population in Portugal and France. A majority of more than 70 percent of European respondents find that Muslim attitudes towards women are incompatible with their own values. Overall in the surveyed countries about one third think that Muslims treat Islamist terrorists as heroes, although somewhat fewer believe that terrorism finds moral support in the Muslim community (ranging from under 20 percent in Germany and the Netherlands to nearly 30 percent in Hungary).

      The scale created from the first three statements clearly illustrates the extent of anti-Muslim attitudes in the studied countries (Figure 5). It is conspicuous that Europeans are largely united in their rejection of Muslims and Islam. The significantly most widespread anti-Muslim attitudes are found in Germany, Hungary, Italy and Poland, closely followed by France, Great Britain and the Netherlands. The extent of anti-Muslim attitudes is least in Portugal. In absolute terms, however, the eight countries differ little in their levels of prejudice towards Muslims.

  • mrbean

    The tension between moderates and the Jihadists is unsustainable. What happens when theJihadist totalitarians push for expanding the scope of sharia a bit more? If sharia can govern banking and trade, for example, why not other aspects of life? Why not also institute Islamic punishments, such as beheading apostates? Having accepted in principle the ideal of sharia, moderates have no grounds to reject further means to that end. They can offer no principled opposition to the slaughter of infidels who refuse to submit, or of apostates who claim the freedom to choose their own convictions. In the face of the incremental or rapid advance of the totalitarian goal, the moderates are in the long run impotent. If Islam is the ideal, why practice it in moderation?

  • L8gr8usa

    This article has stated reality in cystal clear language.

    Unfortunately, neither political party has the will to take appropriate action. Also, the American population doesn’t get it for the reasons stated. Therefore, the problem will grow so great until western leaders are faced with taking “uncivilized” action. They will resign and flee.

    Thank you for all of your generous comments, I sincerely appreciate it. And I wish that the "Khan" Man a few posts above was right that telling the truth about Islam is a "lucrative business," because it's not. If you want to support the kinds of ideas expressed in this piece in fiction form, consider getting chapter one of my digitally serialized graphic novel, The Infidel, featuring Pigman. http://bit.ly/hWeSEB

    • J E Butlerson

      Mr. Fawstin. Excellent article! I've said many of the same things when arguing with dhimmis. But this article needs to be printed in the NYTimes, Washington Post and/or Times, and other papers and magazines where the truly ignorant about Islam (which is 99.9% of the US and Western populations) may see it and be given pause to consider, especially the Washington rulers who seem so ignorant of Islam and its goals.

      Please send this editorial in to as many papers as you can in hopes that some will print it and some others may then pick it up. For our very civilization's survival, your message must get out! Thank you for your courage and for taking the time to speak out as an ex-Muslim. Keep speaking out and informing.

    • I_Marz

      As a comic book writer and life long comics fan, in all honesty I find the Character Pigman…tasteless & uninspiring. Your art in general is hmmm plain and boring, I imagine your story lines & plots are equally weak! That's my professional opinion and excludes any personal remarks on your work.

    Dear Bosch This article is truly the best explanation I have read. I wish more of our westen PC's will go over it 2 or 3 times and deeply understand this cult. Thank you for writting such an informative piece.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    So there is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t.

    And those Muslims who don't aren't Muslims at all, but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    But that doesn’t mean we should consider these reluctant Muslims allies against Jihad. I’ve been around Muslims my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam. The problem I have with many of these essentially non-Muslim Muslims, especially in the middle of this war being waged on us by their more consistent co-religionists, is that they give the enemy cover. They force us to play a game of Muslim Roulette since we can’t tell which Muslim is going to blow himself up until he does. And their indifference about the evil being committed in the name of their religion is a big reason why their reputation is where it is.

    I disagree with this analogy because it is false and therefore wrong and because it is a direct result of PC multicultural conditioning. Yes, even ex-Muslim apostates can become blinded by PC multiculturalism.

    The reality is per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, EVERY MUSLIM ON EARTH has an obligatory duty in Islam to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme. Indeed, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for EXTREMIST MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, and the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for RADICAL MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, and the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for ISLAMISTS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, while at the same time granting an exemption and free pass to so-called MODERATE MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme. Instead, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty for ALL MUSLIMS ON EARTH to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme. No exceptions.

    Hence, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists. A few of them are violent jihadists, while most of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few that are not jihadists are not Muslims at all, but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    The problem that causes all the confusion is due to the fact that because PC multiculturalism pervades our society today, jihad is always conflated and morally equated with terrorism, despite the fact that jihad and terrorism are mutually exclusive and two entirely different manifestations altogether. As jihad, which is a product of Islamic civilization only, is holy fighting in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme and unlike terrorism can be both violent and non-violent. While terrorism, on the other hand, which as its name implies is always only violent, is a product of Western civilization only, and can be for any number of political causes. Indeed, terrorism in the Islamic world is considered to be un-Islamic and therefore blasphemous. Moreover, blasphemy, like apostasy, is a capital offense under Sharia.

    Thus, because jihad is always conflated and morally equated with terrorism thanks to PC multiculturalism that pervades our society today and because terrorism as its name implies is always only violent, it causes the many non-violent varieties of stealth and deceptive jihad to be able to take place today completely ignored, unopposed, undetected, and unacknowledged, and never mind the fact that non-violent varieties of jihad relative to violent varieties of jihad takes place astronomically far more prevalently. In fact, mass Muslim immigration to the West with all of its excess baggage is a form of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad to make Islam supreme via demographic conquest.

    Conflating and morally equating jihad with terrorism also leads to false PC multicultural myths becoming prevalent such as non-violent Muslims are so-called MODERATE MUSLIMS. However, the truth is that so-called MODERATE MUSLIMS, EXTREMIST MUSLIMS, RADICAL MUSLIMS, and ISLAMISTS are all the products of false PC multicultural myths, as again ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are either violent or non-violent jihadists, and the few that are not jihadists, like the writer of this article, for instance, are not Muslims at all, but blasphemous apostates instead that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    –continued below

  • ObamaYoMoma

    So while I understand that most Muslims are not at war with us, they’ve proven in their silence and inaction against jihad that they’re not on our side either, and there’s nothing we can say or do to change that. We just have to finally accept it and stop expecting them to come around, while doing our best to kill those who are trying to kill us.

    Actually, that is a very false dichotomy and therefore a very false perception caused again by the impact that PC multiculturalism has on our society. Again, because jihad is always conflated and morally equated with terrorism, which as it names implies is always only violent, the many non-violent varieties of jihad, which again relative to the violent varieties of jihad takes place astronomically far more prevalently, are completely ignored, unopposed, undetected, and unacknowledged.

    Thus, in the writer's mind and in the minds of most non-Muslims as well, if a Muslim isn't visibly violent then that Muslim is not a terrorists, and never mind the fact that terrorism is a Western manifestation only that in the Islamic world is un-Islamic and therefore blasphemous, which is a capital offense. However, in reality since ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists, either violent or non-violent jihadists, those silent and inactive non-violent Muslims in essence are really NON-VIOLENT STEALTH AND DECEPTIVE JIHADISTS. Therefore, in stark contrast to what the writer says, they actually are at war with us, as they are waging non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad against us.

    If an individual Muslim is personally peaceful, it’s not because of Islam, it’s because of his individual choice, which is why I often say that your average Muslim is morally superior to Mohammad, to their own religion.

    Actually, again I'm sorry to say that this is a very false dichotomy and therefore a very inaccurate perception caused once again by PC Multiculturalism that pervades our society and in especially the tendency to always conflate and morally equate jihad with terrorism. The more accurate perception is that ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists, a few of them are violent jihadists, while most of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few of them that are not jihadists are not Muslims at all, but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    The very rare Muslim who helps us against Jihad is acting against his religion, but that doesn’t stop some among us from thinking that his existence somehow means that he represents more than himself.

    Such a person is not a jihadist and therefore not a Muslim at all, but a blasphemous apostate instead that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    And his advisor on Islam, David Forte, told Bush exactly what he wanted to hear, that “Nothing this evil could come from religion.” But 9/11 did come from a religion. Whatever else 9/11 was, it was an act of faith.

    No, not really; that's totally incorrect. 9/11 was an act of jihad. Indeed, Islam requires all Muslims to totally, completely, and unconditionally submit to the will of Allah. As a matter of fact the word Islam in Arabic means submission and the word Muslim in Arabic means one who submits.

    Thus, unlike in faith-based religions where adherents are perfectly free to question and even challenge the text and tenets of their respective religions and even free to leave their respective religions or convert to another religion altogether should they so desire, in Islam, on the other hand, because the freedom of conscience is forbidden, those same actions, blasphemy in the first case and apostasy in the second, are capital offenses.

    Indeed, what faith-based religions punish blasphemy and apostasy via the penalty of death? The answer, of course, is none of them do. Irrefutably proving at the same time that Islam is not a faith-based religion as it masquerades as being to dupe the societies it intends to subjugate into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia to make Islam supreme.

    Thus, if Islam is not a faith-based religion, then what exactly is Islam? It's a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology very similar to other totalitarian ideologies like Communism. Indeed, Islam just like Communism seeks world domination, and the end result of Islam, exactly like Communism, is totalitarianism and lots and lots of misery.

    And Bush saying “Islam is peace” shortly after 9/11 gave the enemy a gift they couldn’t have foreseen. Here was the one man who was charged to defend America from their attack and here he was defending the very ideology that motivated the attackers.

    While it’s true that jihadists don’t represent most Muslims, they do represent Islam

    No, that is not true, and again that is a very false dichotomy and a false PC multicultural myth. Again, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are either violent or non-violent jihadists. Again, because of PC multiculturalism that pervades our society and the resulting tendency to always conflate and morally equate jihad with terrorism, which again as its name implies is always only violent, this writer like most non-Muslims in the world today as well, has been conditioned to completely ignore non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists. Thus, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists, either violent or non-violent jihadists in stark contrast to what the writer wrote above.

    But then why don’t most Muslims engage in jihad?

    Again, that's totally false and incorrect. They do engage in jihad, either of the violent variety of jihad, such as the 9/11 jihad attacks, or in the non-violent stealth and deceptive varieties of jihad, such as in mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of demographic conquest to make Islam supreme.

    Finally, the incredibly disastrous and misguided “War on Terror” must be scrapped ASAP, because terrorism is a Western manifestation only that in fact is considered to be un-Islamic and blasphemous in Islamic society and punished via death. In its place, we must adopt a new saner strategy to contain the growth, spread, and expansion of Islam. Otherwise, we will lose this war so fast it will make your head spin.

    Mr. Fawstin, thank you for taking the time to write this clear and thorough article. While I might disagree on details of terminology, I think you have worked from facts of reality and drawn logical conclusions about the essential situation and what needs to be done by the West.

  • Bill

    It is very interesting. I love this article. I am a history professor who is sometimes called upon to teach world religions. Before 9/11 I had pretty much relied on the texts I got from the publishers with regard to how I taught about Islam. After 9/11, I decided to study it for myself in some detail. The more I have studied, the harsher my evaluation of Islam has become. Islam's own books and its most intense advocates are who turned me against the religion. Most other religions stress a fundamental Golden Rule mentality of some sort related to the treatment of others. Those who commit acts of violence against innocent strangers are going against the highest values of those religions. Not so with Islam. In Islam those who do not commit acts of violence against innocent strangers are the ones who are failing to live up to its highest ideals. This is a terrific and truthful article which deserves a much wider dissemination.

    One of the best explications and analyses of “moderate” Islam I have ever read. Mr. Fawstin has earned the accolades of all those who value their freedom and wonder why it’s threatened by “Organized Islam” (aka CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, MSA, et al. ad nauseum). “Moderate” Muslim silence about the violent actions of their co-religionists constitutes a sanction of that violence. And Muslims who believe that Islam can be “reformed” are deluding themselves

  • John

    I loved this, but didn't know quite was being prescribed. The description of the religion feels dead on. But is he saying we should simply commit genocide against Islam? That's a lot of people to take out. What, a billion? Or that we should deliberately assault their viewpoint, and drive comedy at it, and ruin it, like we did to the communists, using radio and other means to disrupt and demoralize their useless viewpoint and crummy religion? If that's what he wants, I didn't hear him say that.

    • curmudgeon

      regarding your question: does not 1400 years of islamic genocide give you some hint? as long as islam exists, genocide will exist. so far, the genocide has all been muslims genociding infidels, and that will continue to be the case. are you not even vaguely aware that syria was one of the earliest christian counries? tunesia was an early christian country. turkey was a christian country. pakistan was hindu and buddhist. afghanistan was buddhist. iran was zooroastrian. the people of the above mentioned religions did not wake up one day and say, i believe i will convert to a religion in which every vice is a virtue, and in which every virtue is a sin. no. they were either killed, or enslaved, and the method was not oratorical, but rather the sword. if you dont wish to be enslaved, you best stop being so concerned for the welfare of the genociders, and start being concerned for those being genocided, and that, sir, is us.

    Please delete "homophobia" from the socalled negative attributes of Islam….This serves to make Islam more appealing to non Muslims who are appalled at the forcing of homosexuality on our society and in our schools….Of course the best course would be to find a cure for the biological abnormality of homosexualtiy, but at this time some people find Islam worth a look only because of its attitude toward homosexuality. They don't seem to realize Islam also brings with it a lot of rather negative baggage, so well described in the above essay.

    • kafirman

      Homosexuality is a violation of something very basic to human nature: natural law.

      The Muslims are more correct in their punishment of homosexuality than the West is in celebrating this sexual perversion.

      The Genius of the US is The Declaration's founding of a nation based on "nature and nature's God." Because the US is now celebrating sexual perversion, the USG no longer serves to "secure these rights."

      As Alan Keyes tell us, if our unalienable rights come from God, then our rights and our laws must be done with respect to our Creator.

      To abandon natural law is to abandon the foundation for political freedom and to usher might-makes-right statism.

  • John_Kelly

    The most despicable and vile people on planet earth are not necessarily the sycophantic, psychotic, perverted, hate driven, terror espousing followers of Mohammad but the political and media elites in the Western World who compromise by turning a blind eye as it may destroy their careers if they factually criticize this religious ideology spawned in the pit of hell.

    While the media is currently in a feeding frenzy over Jerry Sandusky the former Penn State assistant football coach facing 40 counts of molesting children, they are conveniently BLIND to the history & track record of the greatest and most perverted sexual deviant in history, Mohammad the so called Prophet.

    The proof of these accusations is readily available as one only needs to read the Quran & the Hadith.

    Mohammad’s took his youngest bride Aisha when she reached the ripe old age of 6 and consummated the wedding when she was a mature 9 years old. NO Islamic teacher will deny this.

    Hmmmm isn’t that called Pedophilia?

    When Mohammad raided Kheibar he raped a beautiful 17 year old Jewish woman named Safiyah only hours after slaughtering her family and torturing her husband to death. NO Islamic teacher will deny this.

    The Quran & the Hadith are replete with the adventures of Mohammad that make Charles Manson look like Mother Theresa.

    Funny how Muslims make such a big deal about never eating “Pork” when Mohammad was the most deviant, despicable PIG to ever live.

    Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow, Al Sharpton and all of you insipid, limp-wristed, gutless, “media prostitutes” why aren’t you spineless hypocrites searching out the TRUTH ABOUT ISLAM and shouting the warning from the rooftops.

  • LindaRivera

    American, European, British, Canadian, Australian and other Western leaders are actively aiding and abetting the Muslim goal of global Islamic conquest by taking in massive numbers of Muslims into our countries. Conquest by demographics. Muslims have very large families in order to conquer hated infidels. As Muslims state: "The wombs of our women will give us victory".

    It was immoral and ABNORMAL for President Bush to declare, "Islam is a peaceful religion", right after our cherished 3,000 were slaughtered without mercy by the followers of Islam. And to make such a shocking statement after Muslims in America and countries around the world celebrated the suffering and cruel murders of our 3,000.

    And to make that DECEITFUL declaration after THOUSANDS of Palestinian Authority Muslims CELEBRATED with great JOY the intense pain, agony and murders of our 3,000. PA Muslims danced in the streets, passed out sweets and fired into the air. Muslims, Americans are forced to finance with their taxes and REWARD with a Muslim terror state implant in little Israel bent on Jewish genocide.

    In Berlin, Germany, Turkish Muslims celebrated the 9/11 murder of innocents by sending up hundreds of bottle rockets into the air. We will also never forget that thousands of PA Muslims celebrate in the streets whenever a Muslim terrorist blows up amongst our Israeli brothers and sisters.

    Muslims PROVE with their great JOY, DELIGHT and CELEBRATION over the mass killing of Non-Muslim innocents that Islam is NOT a religion of peace. It is not even human.

  • LindaRivera

    Our leaders BETRAY every non-Muslim on earth by supporting global jihad with a victory mosque at Ground Zero. Throughout Islamic history, Islam has built mosques at the sites of their military conquests and victories. The 9/11 mosque is a symbol of Islamic victory.

    We must not dishonor our beloved 3,000. We must not dishonor this great nation with a triumphalist mosque at Ground Zero.

    Our leaders' eagerness in seeking to honor Islam where our beloved 3,000 were murdered by Muslims sends a powerful message to every Muslim terrorist on earth that Islam, and they personally, will be honored with a victory mosque at the place where they mass murder American innocents. Every Muslim terrorist on earth must surely be lining up so that they too, can be honored with a victory mosque.

    We would not be in grave danger of global Islamic conquest and the total loss of all of our freedoms and human rights if it were not for the terrible betrayal of our rabidly pro-Islam, anti Free World leaders who eagerly submit and surrender to Islam.

    Simply put if you are a Muslim you have no good intent towards any non-Muslim
    and will do what you can to cause the non-Muslim to submit to Islam. When the
    numbers are right and Muslims are strong enough in lands they colonize the
    move is put on to institute Sharia Law as the law of the land and force all who
    live in that area to submit, eventually destroying those who refuse to bow down
    or creating a living slavery to the whims of the Islamists. The best approach is
    to not let this start, never let them gain a foothold and to let them know we do not
    want anything to do with them ever. To late, leftists have brought them here and
    fools accept them unaware of what will come later on. We know what they will
    do, what they have done and that we are at war, the war being what they carry
    with them and their creed like lice on a rat. Deportation and Crusade against this
    evil is always called for if survival from slavery is to be maintained……….William

    everybody who lived in the totalitarian state understands this man. People from USSR lived abroad as the western people but returning home they again became" Muslims"- Soviets.

  • kafirman

    "Non-observant Muslims are not our problem, but neither are they the solution to our problem. Our problem is Islam and its most consistent practitioners."

    Not so fast. As Mosab Hassan Yousef notes, the Muslims who are friendly to the West, are perhaps more lethal than the bin Laden types (who follow in the example of Mohammad).

    The milque-toasty Westerned Muslims serve to put a moral veneer over the evil of Islam. Instead of defining Islam by the Koran, Ahadith and Sira, Multiculturalism defines Islam in terms of the Westernized Muslims who haven't been unskinned of their humanity like the true Muslims.

  • http://hesperado.blogspot.com/ Hesperado

    As I wrote in a recent essay on my blog in response to Fawstin's essay:

    After his provocative opening salvo, "My name is Bosch and I'm a recovering Muslim" — Fawstin writes in his very first paragraph:

    … fortunately for us, Islam hasn’t been able to make every Muslim its slave, just as Nazism wasn’t able to turn every German into a Nazi. So there is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t.

    The remainder of his essay is chock-full of incoherencies, insofar as, interwoven among gymnastically flexible contortions otherwise, they effectively contradict the purport of the two sentences quoted above — assuming, that is (as Fawstin goes on to make clear), that his hypothetical category "Muslims who don't take Islam seriously" apparently reflects a vast worldwide demographic sufficiently numerous and widespread to make a difference to the danger which Islam activated by Muslims poses to our societies. (For, it they don't make a difference, why mention them?)

    Other than unsubstantiated claims to support the viability of that hypothetical category, Fawstin offers only anecdotal evidence:

    "I’ve been around Muslims my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam."

      Although I didn't post on jihad watch, I also didn't buy Fawstin's incoherent mush. Nevertheless, I think his heart is in the right place. However, like most people today, unfortunately he seems to be blinded a tad by PC multiculturalism.

    Correction to my previous post: The initial quote of Fawstin is only the one paragraph —

    "… fortunately for us, Islam hasn’t been able to make every Muslim its slave, just as Nazism wasn’t able to turn every German into a Nazi. So there is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t."

    What followed in my comment above are then my words and analysis.

  • http://hesperado.blogspot.com/ Hesperado

    I am unsurprisingly amused by the comment of "John" above my comment. The fact that people like "John" can seriously think Fawstin comes anywhere close to advocating "genocide" shows that no matter how cautiously asymptotic a person is (as Fawstin is in spades, claiming that most Muslims are harmless), there will still be idiots like "John" around to construe them as being, effectively, blatantly genocidal maniacs.

  • Blaze Pascal

    Just as we cannot rely on the Muslims around us, who are remaining neutral, so we must not appear to be attacking those Muslims. Thus, it is a good idea to declare that we are against "the jihadies" or "the fanatics" and not against the neutral ones. This is a little takia of our own we can play.

  • Mary

    Exactly. Islam requires ALL Muslims to support jihad, either financially (Muslims charities can only help Muslims and Muslim "causes" such as jihad), violently, or passively (e.g., walking away when a U.S. soldier is about to walk on an IED). Moderate Muslims are merely passive. There may be Muslims trapped in Islam under penalty of death who are in good faith, but eventually the decision for or against Islam comes about. The original (not rewritten by Mohammad 600 years after Jesus) Bible quotes Jesus as saying, "Whoever is ashamed of ME AND OF MY WORDS in this faithless and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels." Mark 6:38 [emphasis added]

    Non-Muslims in desperate need of escaping Muslim severe persecution are being attacked at asylum centers by Muslim asylum seekers. These Muslims are waging jihad as soon as they enter a hated infidel nation. They should NOT receive asylum as THEY are the attackers and persecutors.

    Dutch Reporter: Immigrants Seeking Asylum in Europe Linked to Security Problems, Intimidation of Christians, Jews
    by IPT News • Dec 9, 2010

    Christian asylum seekers have been subjected to intimidation, even violent attacks by other Muslim asylum seekers. One Iraqi Christian woman was forced into hiding after several Muslims attacked her and threw her from her bike. Another Christian asylum seeker was thrown down a flight of stairs. In another case, a Muslim couple which converted to Christianity was threatened and intimidated by Muslims inside an asylum center.

    In fact, a survey taken of 28 of the 59 asylum centers in Holland showed that about one third of Christian asylum seekers are the victims of physical violence. 75% of those surveyed said that they knew asylum seekers who have been subjected to discrimination because they are Christian or formerly Muslim.

    Jews have also been the victims of persecution by these immigrants to Europe. http://www.investigativeproject.org/blog/2010/12/

    AFGHAN CHRISTIANS IN DANGER AT HOME AND ABROAD
    11/21/2011 – 8:59 a.m. CST

    For Obaid, the menacing calls were not the first time he felt threatened since arriving in India. "Our community is a persecuted and rejected community," he told me last April. "We left behind all our belongings in Afghanistan just to save our lives by leaving Afghanistan. Here in India, we are receiving no legal and physical protection from the UNHCR Office or Indian government. We are harassed, attacked, insulted and persecuted by Indian Muslims and Afghan Muslim refugees in this city."

    The persecution of Afghan Christian refugees is sometimes ignored by the very agencies that are mandated to protect them.

    …Hundreds of Afghan Christians, like Obaid, remain on the run from religious-based persecution that targets them at home and abroad. "In the modern world, where we have NATO, the UN, human rights commissions, and governments which claim they fight for democracy and give protection for those who are persecuted, I cannot find a place in this world where I am protected," Obaid lamented. http://www.thecypresstimes.com/article/Christian_

    Christian refugees, no
    Exclusive: Pamela Geller reveals fact
    that U.N. decides who U.S. will accept

    Christians are in imminent danger across the world, and yet they are being refused refugee status, while Muslim refugee immigration goes on unimpeded.

    U.S. policy regarding refugee resettlement would shock most Americans if they only knew. The United Nations picks who gets to come to the U.S. as a refugee. The mandate of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is to determine which of the world's huddled masses comes to the U.S. as humanitarian refugees. And predictably, this U.N. body is favoring Muslims. Christians from Muslim lands are being refused refugee status.

    …Whole Muslim communities are imported into the United States. When they get here, they are supported by social services…

    …But this lottery is not open to non-Muslim refugees. Back in October 2008, Muslim U.N. employees were "discouraging" applications for resettlement from the desperate Christian Iraqis.

  • Beth

    "We need to shift the focus onto our own well-being at the enemy’s expense for a change" (agreed)

    Speaking for Christians: true followers of islam are not enemies…..they are strangers. We are to pray for our eneimies (who is my enemy? Mic 7:6, Mat 10:36) – but not for strangers (Jhn 10:5).

    this is important

    islam calls the Lord of the Christians an abomination and all of His eye-witnesses liars, by one lone acusser who wasn't even there with them, offering no proof but his own say-so….who preaches beheadings and crucifixions of all who don't bow to him. We are not to pray for them…so they need to be called what they really are – Strangers. (strangers who love to murder)

    And for all those who support them…are murderers also. If you support a murderer – you are one. (Just telling it like it is)

    • I_Marz

      Thats contradicting…praying for enemies not strangers? Good people pray for all…for we're all good children.

      I hope you turn your anger/hate towards the real enemy, Satan, who wishes us all, equally, harm and eternal damnation…no? and to his followers; the Illuminati, skulls & bones members, the Bohemian group all whom are high ranking officials, business men, media members mostly in the US. Who spread hate and profit from wars and bloodshed and do all this right under our noses & with our consent because they appear as saviours! Wake up and smell the REAL danger.

      As for Christ; we truly believe Christ is God's messenger as mentioned numerous times in the Quran, a prophet like Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon ending with Mohamed (peace be upon them all as we do not differentiate between any of the prophets). However, we DO NOT believe he is God reincarnate or God's son…that is paganism & a great misdeed against the Lord to make such claims…

      And they say: The Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a son. (88) Assuredly ye utter a disastrous thing (89) Whereby almost the heavens are torn, and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall in ruins, (90) That ye ascribe unto the Beneficent a son, (91) When it is not meet for (the Majesty of) the Beneficent that He should choose a son. (92) There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave. (93) Taken from Maryam Chapter 19.

      Go ahead challenge your beliefs and read the whole chapter that gives account of Christ's birth & tell all, challenging ones beliefs is the only way to the truth…go ahead Beth, this is a dare :))

      P.S in eye witness accounts, who do you mean? John, Mark, Luke and Mathew where NOT alive during the time of Christ…this is a well known FACT, ask your priest even. As for the Bible, though God inspired yes (the Psalms & Gospel also mentioned in the Quran) is at end of the day man made; over 3000 years and an estimated 400 contributors. Eventually compiled (selected) by Emperor Constantine 300 years after the death of Christ when he wanted to unite the Roman Empire under one religion to save it from disintegrating. Arm yourself with knowledge my sister lest you be misguided!

      Nonetheless, I remain hopeful & will continue to pray for you and everyone.

      Salam (peace)

      • Beth

        No, it is not contradicting I_Marz. Let me give you a good example as to why. Should we pray for those who call the Son of God an abomination to succeed?

        The Judgement was already given (and not by me)…..

        Jhn 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

        I will not pray for the teachings of…

        Koran…

        Mass Murder……………………………009.005 – 033.061
        Gang Rape………………………………033.052
        Beheadings……………………………..047.004
        Crucifixions………………………………005.033
        Robbery…………………………………..008.041
        Telling lies to non-muslims………….003.028
        Cutting off hands and feet…………..005.033
        Treason……………………………………008.067
        Racism…………………………………….005.041

        To pray for those who are advicates of those teachings would be a prayer of abomination…..No?

        You see I_Marz, the Lord of the Bible does not FORCE people into bowing to Him. He gives us all the free choice of doing so or not doing so….unlike your god of the koran.

        That's why there is an appointed time called – the Judgement.

        Hbr 10:30 For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me [not man]

        To pray for the wicked who have clearly made their choice to support darkness who believe it is their duty to carry out evil wicked acts…is an abomination. They are strangers I_Marz….at least – they are for me.

        Because…..

        if the teachings of beheadings and crucifixions aren't (plain and simple) pure evil?…..where does that leave the ones who are supporting such crap?

        it leaves them with no excuse….and no prayers.

        In fact…it makes them responsible for the ills of this world. I have never prayed for them…and I never will. They are strangers to me…those who see no wrong in such teachings. They are strangers to me…..because they are of a mindset that I don't understand…nor do I ever want to understand.

        They have made their own conscientious choice to support evil. I will not FORCE them to change their minds. But, neither will I pray for them.

        Beacuse….Hbr 10:30 we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me

      well again I'm sorry you feel this way & for you as well. I guess only time will tell & by that time it would be too late to change your misguided views, at a time when even Jesus will not stand by you and your beliefs in him;

      5:116 And behold! God will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God.?"

      5:117He will say: "Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say, to wit, 'worship God, my Lord and your Lord'; and I was a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up Thou wast the Watcher over them, and Thou art a witness to all things.

        In no way…..would Jesus EVER defend the teachings of beheadings. I think that is the part that you are not 'getting' I_Marz.

        • I_Marz

          Be-headings are NOT our teachings & we don't support them Neither does Mohamed, Muslims Nor Islam! Its NOT in the Quran and is NOT practised, stop believing the lies/media!

          However, with that said…do believe in the death penalty?

          • Beth

            In the koran:

            047.004 Therefore, when ye meet '''the Unbelievers''' in fight, smite at their necks. Behead them! and the Muslims are commanded to initiate the fight} 002.216 – 009.039 – throughout the earth} 004.101 – 004.100

            This is why we hear reports of muslims beheading others….because of the teachings of the koran. You may not carry out such an evil act I_Marz …but then one should ask…where does that leave you upon examining the following:

            004.095 Not equal are those believers who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons… those who strive and fight hath He distinguished above those who sit at home by a special reward.

            002.216 Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing [war] which is good for you and that ye love a thing [peace] which is bad for you?

          • Beth

            I am not the one who calls your prophet a liar I_Marz. But you do by denying the words of your koran. I just simply put forth his words for all to judge for themselves.

            005.047 Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed

            And so – I shall.

          • I_Marz

            If you're going to quote the Quran then do so objectively & DO NOT omit things;

            5:47 (Asad) Let, then, the followers of the Gospel judge in accordance with what God has revealed therein: for they who do not judge in the light of what God has bestowed from on high-it is they, they who are truly iniquitous!

            47:4 (Picktall) Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either mercy or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain.

            SEE you just quote/see what you want to subjectively & denying the truth/virtue within…be FAIR/HONEST;
            1. of course in war there would be killings DUH!
            2. The time for MERCY/ Ransom!
            3. Until the war lay down its burdens = ends = peace/ a truce!

            4:95 (Picktall) Those of the believers who sit still, other than those who have a (disabling) hurt, are not on an equality with those who strive in the way of Allah with their wealth and lives. Allah hath conferred on those who strive with their wealth and lives a rank above the sedentary. Unto each Allah hath promised good, but He hath bestowed on those who strive a great reward above the sedentary; –

            STRIVE NOT FIGHT!!!!!

            and yes its true we were expected to fight for Islam & God, why is that so strange! What do you call the Crusade wars against Muslims…was that NOT ordained and sanctioned by the Pope & Church!? OR WII approved by the Pope & Church as well! So its just alright for you to fight , make inquisitions, deadly missions, crusades, war for oil & NOT alright for us to fight?!!! thats an egocentric, delusional way of thinking…no wonder America is hated so much…not just Muslims, I'm travelling in Australia now & they don't stand the US at the moment! so yes, we will fight those of transgress against them for we are FEARLESS unlike your army that fights with drones and hide behind the technology! I would rather not fight but if the fight comes to us we don't back down.

            here;s what really blows my mind; (a) many historians don't believe in the historical Jesus as there is NO real evidence to him (b) Jews called him a liar/fraud and tried to kill him (c) Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto & atheist don't give a damn…right?!! While (a) Mohamed is the ONLY person to support him (b) Quran is the ONLY other source to mention him (c) Muslims are the ONLY ppl that believe in JC!!!! So how come all teh hate towards us…its divide and conquer tactics of the devil!

            Open your eyes…Mohamed is the last of teh prophets, Islam is the final instalment of the religions, The Quran is the final testament & last chapter

            It is a fact that the koran preaches slaughtering of infidels.

            It is a fact that ht ekoran preaches beheadings and crucifixions.

            There is NO defense, no excuse, no justification for those teachings….no matter if you were able to put forth numerous writings that teach the contrary.

            And that's the difference between the New Testament and the Koran. The New Testament does not contradict itself:

            Rom 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

            Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

            After that……….there are NO MORE laws given in the New Testament.

            I prefer that my children grow up in a society that knows and accepts the teachings of the New Testament. Since the OIC has 57 nations that abide by the laws that you prefer…..maybe you should consider moving to one of those nations. Because you obviously are not able to see the wrong in the teachings of beheading…….an exceedingly wicked act.

            There is no middle-ground here Marz – not when it comes to violent teachings.

    Christians stole north america as they murdered the natives. Makes islam look like saints.

    • Durin

      What does this have to do w/ the article?

      Bosch claims that there is a threat today, so you claim that a different group was a threat to some other group in the past. You’ll have to do the math for me to show how this relates to Bosch’s points.

    • tom

      randy,
      You are a bit naive to assume that this huge continent would remain undiscovered and pristinely intact for the native indians forever. Rejoice and be glad that it was the Christians who discovered and (according to you) "stole" North America, because of which we are enjoying freedoms for all, yes even for the native Indians.
      Did you even stop to think what would happen if the hordes of Arabia ventured in this direction? you would not be having this discussion but rather be home beating your wives, because allah commands it, or subjucating and taxing infidels.

      Islam destroys cultures and and replaces them with the barbaric Islamic Arab one.

      Read carefully what allah prescribes should happen to infidels like us:

      [9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

      I'll bet you wouldn't think Islam was so "saintly" if you were a Copt living in Egypt right now … or would you?

      Please explain why you think they should be legal.

  • TantoSays

    Excellent work! Two points that I would like to make:

    I have often used the words Islamists and political Islam in my writings when communicating with American citizens. I wholeheartedly agree with your definitions of what Islam is, but there was such a chasm in understanding that using these words as a bridge allowed Americans who treasure the 1st Amendment to accept your words in the context of religious freedoms.

    People had to reconcile their feelings about freedom to worship before they could open their eyes to the evil that you detail so well. Separating religious Islam from political Islam is a tool to move the learning process forward incrementally for people that started at the point of total ignorance about Islam.

    To fight the war that is coming (yes, the real war has only just begun), we need all of our citizens brought to the point where they can fully understand and support the concept that we can identify and fight the evils of Islam while allowing Muslims in America to worship. Otherwise we will be a nation divided at a time that unity is required.

    My second point is that we have to solve the problem globally if the threats are to be eliminated in the long term. We cannot kill 1.4 billion people as a solution, so we have to work to support Muslims in the reformation of their religion and let them do the job of cleansing their ranks of jihadists.

    We use the term 'Separatists' to define people who want to follow the peaceful parts of the Qur'an, worship their god, remain Muslim, but discard all of the evil portions of Islamic writings and history. We have to give them the way out and then support their efforts. Using 1.3 billion followers to identify and neutralize the other 100 million is smart warfare; while we actively destroy the leaders and the active networks in the short term.

    The way out is to encourage them to reform their religion to bring it current with modern times, and separate out the political and violent portions and identify it as part of their past.

    Here is the cover that they need to pull it off: acknowledge that other major religions have had to resolve the same issues with interpretations of their writings and history but moved past it and matured along with society. We have been there, done it, and now it's your turn.

    The world has a long road ahead of it dealing with this issue. Your work is so key to the effort because you have the credibility of having lived it from the inside. Every perspective that moves our country and the world towards understanding the threat and underlying ideology, is critical.

    I write with a team that works to identify these and other issues in an incremental but constant effort to open people's minds to the dangers of Islam, socialism, and overreaching government that infringes upon personal freedoms. Sometimes we have a little fun by using sarcasm and humor, but everything is designed to reach average Americans and get them to wake up. You can check us out at http://mywtfblog.com

    I look forward to following your work as your tell such an important story.

  • I_Marz

    While I respect Bosch's right to express his opinion, the more intelligent reader would quickly realize this is NOT an article by any sense of the word! It lacks credibility for failing to quote any source, sight or document any official document, doctrine, events or historical facts. This reads more like ramblings of a paranoid individual propagating hate, racism and bigotry. Its ironic he mentions the Nazis so often when his 'article' sounds all too familiar like Hitler's speech against the Jews during WWII. This is indeed disturbing to say the least that educated people would support such an opinion…a path to the dark side indeed. Rather that spreading hate and mistrust, I as Muslim, Canadian Third Degree Master Mason & a comic book writer am working to spread a message of acceptance, respect, love and unity…for we are NOT our brother's enemy! Humanity's true enemy is Satan who seeks to destroy us by means of 'divide and conquer'…pitting us one against the other! Open your eyes, minds and hearts my friends lest you be blind, arrogant and hateful…

      Taught in your Koran I_Marz …

      Can you understand how hypocritical it is for you to say "….am working to spread a message of acceptance, respect, love and unity" and then you defend those teachings?

      Can you not see how messed up your position is?

      • I_Marz

        obviously it is you you who is messed up (to use your own words)…blinded by hate and crippled by fear! Unfortunately I cannot help you no one can… but you Beth should you decide to 'unlearn' what has been crammed down your throat & start with a fresh clean mind, then the truth will show itself. I just pity you but will pray for you as well…

        • Beth

          "crippled by fear"

          No I_Marz….for if I were truly "crippled by fear" I would not be putting forth the facts.

          Do not pray for me I_Marz….l will not pray for you. I don't pray for strangers…who believe in commands that promote beheadings, gang rape, crucifixions and like brutalities.

          Should I pray for you?…..would that mean barbaric teachings should spread? Yep, I believe such prayers – mean exactly that.

          Jhn 10:5 And a stranger will they (true Christians) not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

          1Jo 5:16 There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

          I'm not your 'average' so-called 'worldly Christian' I_Marz.

          So, no….I will not pray for you. I will abide by the Christian Scriptures FIRST and NOT by what this world preaches.

          You have YET to address THE BRUTALITY that is taught in your own koran (a common theme by the corrupt…because they have no answer).

          Taught in your koran…

          Mass Murder……………………………009.005 – 033.061
          Gang Rape………………………………033.052

          Treason……………………………………008.067
          Racism…………………………………….005.041

          Those are the teachings you are defending I_Marz….are they not?

          And let me add, please, those are the sickest teachings that were ever bestowed upon mankind……No?

          Will you EVER give an answer to the facts laid befor you I_Marz? (I think not…but, please, prove me wrong)……

          You have YET to address THE BRUTALITY that is taught in your own koran

    "I am speaking to those who, though not stupid or evil, are wallowing in prudence and doubt. And to them I say: "Wake up, people. Wake up!!" —you don't understand or don't want to understand that a reverse–Crusade is in progress. You don't understand or don't want to understand that if we don't oppose them, if we don't defend ourselves, if we don't fight, the Jihad will win. And it will destroy the world that for better or worse we've managed to build, to change, to improve, to render a little more intelligent, that is to say, less bigoted—or even not bigoted at all. And with that it will destroy our culture, our art, our science, our morals, our values, our pleasures."

    “Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it…have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations are vanished from the earth! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind.”
    —-John Wesley (1703-1791) England, Methodist leader and renown theologian

    ”[Islam] is essentially an obstructive, intolerant system. It has consecrated despotism; it has consecrated polygamy; it has consecrated slavery. It has declared war against every other creed; it has claimed to be at least dominant in every land. When it ceases to have an enemy to contend against, it sinks into sluggish stupidity and into a barbarism far viler. It must have an enemy; if cut off from conflict with the infidel, it finds its substitute in sectarian hatred of brother Moslems…”

    "The true Islamic concept of peace goes something like this: "Peace comes through submission to Muhammad and his concept of Allah" (i.e. Islam). As such the Islamic concept of peace, meaning making the whole world Muslim, is actually a mandate for war.

    “In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adams's capital letters)… Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant… While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and goodwill towards men."
    —John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) Sixth President of the United States

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia [rabies] in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. …The fact that in Mohammedan law [sharia] 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 Moslems 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.”
    —Winston Churchill (1874-1965) British Prime Minister

    “Today [1950], the hatred of the Moslem countries against the West is becoming hatred against Christianity itself. Although the statesmen have not yet taken it into account, there is still grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return and, with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power.”

    “Qur’an… an accursed book… So long as there is this book there will be no peace in the world.”
    —William Gladstone (1809-1898) Prime Minister of Great Britain 1868 – 1894

    “Will not perhaps the temporal power of Islam return and with it the menace of an armed Mohammedan world, which will shake off the domination of Europeans — still nominally Christian — and reappear as the prime enemy of our civilization? The future always comes as a surprise, but political wisdom consists in attempting at least some partial judgment of what that surprise may be. And for my part I cannot but believe that a main unexpected thing of the future is the return of Islam.”

    “The Greeks who triumphed at Marathon and Salamis did a work without which the world would have been deprived of the social value of Plato and Aristotle, of Aeschylus, Herodotus, and Thucydides. The civilization of Europe, America, and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization, because the victories stretching through the centuries from the days of Miltiades and Themistocles to those of Charles Martel in the eighth century and those of John Sobieski in the seventeenth century.”

    “During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king, the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any "social values" whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence. There are such "social values" today in Europe, America, and Australia only because during those thousand years the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do – that is, to beat back the Moslem invader.”

They live by the bow, the sword and debauchery, finding pleasure in taking slaves, devoting themselves to murder, pillage, spoil,and not only do they commit these crimes, but even — what an aberration — they believe that God approves of them.

    "I studied the Kuran a great deal … I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammed. As far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world, and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion infinitely more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress."

    "The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force".

    “Islam was not a torch, as has been claimed, but an extinguisher. Conceived in a barbarous brain for the use of a barbarous people, it was – and it remains – incapable of adapting itself to civilization.

    "ISLAM HAS A TOTAL ORGANIZATION OF LIFE THAT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM OURS; it embraces simply everything. There is a very marked subordination of woman to man; there is a very tightly knit criminal law, indeed, a law regulating all areas of life, that is opposed to our modern ideas about society. ONE HAS TO HAVE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING THAT IT IS NOT SIMPLY A DENOMINATION THAT CAN BE INCLUDED IN THE FREE REALM OF A PLURALISTIC SOCIETY."
    —-Pope Benedict XVI

    "Islam, more than any other religion human beings have devised, has all the makings of a thoroughgoing cult of death. As a matter of doctrine, the Muslim conception of tolerance is one in which non-Muslims have been politically and economically subdued, converted, or put to sword. The penalty for apostasy is death. We would do well to linger over this fact for a moment, because it is the black pearl of intolerance that no liberal exegesis will ever fully digest. There are other ideologies with which to expunge the last vapors of reasonableness from a society's discourse, but Islam is undoubtedly one of the best we've got. The truth that we must finally confront is that Islam contains specific notions of martyrdom and jihad that fully explain the character of Muslim violence."
    —-Sam Harris, September 20, 2006, Liberal American author, philosopher and neuroscientist

    "Islam deserves criticism on account of the logical consequences of its dogma, namely, that the murder of fellow human beings is to be rewarded with sensual pleasure in a hedonistic 'Paradise'- a concept born in the fantasies of an Arab rebel some fourteen centuries ago. The religion of Mohammed is a dangerous system when the teachings and example of the 'prophet' are believed and followed."
    —-Richard Dawkins

    "…But care is taken not to say how Islam expanded, how countries 'passed into [Muslim] hands.'…Regarding this expansion, little is said about jihad. And yet it all happened through war!…the jihad is an institution…that is to say it is a part of the normal functioning of the Muslim world…The conquered populations change status (they become dhimmis), and the shari'a tends to be put into effect integrally, overthrowing the former law of the country. The conquered territories do not simply change 'owners.'"

    "…my correspondence with liberals has convinced me that liberalism has grown dangerously out of touch with the realities of our world — specifically with what devout Muslims actually believe about the West, about paradise and about the ultimate ascendance of their faith.
    "On questions of national security, I am now as wary of my fellow liberals as I am of the religious demagogues on the Christian right. This may seem like frank acquiescence to the charge that "liberals are soft on terrorism." It is, and they are.
    "A cult of death is forming in the Muslim world — for reasons that are perfectly explicable in terms of the Islamic doctrines of martyrdom and jihad. The truth is that we are not fighting a "war on terror." We are fighting a pestilential theology and a longing for paradise.
    "It is time we admitted that we are not at war with “terrorism”; we are at war with precisely the vision of life that is prescribed to all Muslims in the Koran. This is not to say that we are at war with all Muslims, but we are absolutely at war with millions more than have any direct affiliation with Al Qaeda, We are at war with those who believe that death in defense of the faith is the highest possible good, that cartoonists should be killed for caricaturing the prophet and that any Muslim who loses his faith should be butchered for apostasy… Unfortunately, this religious extremism is not a fringe phenomenon.

The idea that Islam is a “peaceful religion hijacked by extremists” is a dangerous fantasy—and it is now a particularly dangerous fantasy for moderate Muslims to indulge.
    "Given the degree to which religious ideas are still sheltered from criticism in every society, it is actually possible for a person to have the economic and intellectual resources to build a nuclear bomb — and to believe that he will get 72 virgins in paradise. And yet, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, liberals continue to imagine that Muslim terrorism springs from economic despair, lack of education and American militarism…Sawing the heads off of civilian contractors, humanitarian workers, and journalists is not “resistance” to oppression. It is the work of men who left their hearts in the 7th century.
    "I don't know how many more engineers and architects need to blow themselves up, fly planes into buildings or saw the heads off of journalists before this fantasy will dissipate. The truth is that there is every reason to believe that a terrifying number of the world's Muslims now view all political and moral questions in terms of their affiliation with Islam. This leads them to rally to the cause of other Muslims no matter how sociopathic their behavior. This is solidarity born of religious delusion, and it must end—or a genuine clash of civilizations will be unavoidable. This benighted religious solidarity may be the greatest problem facing civilization and yet it is regularly misconstrued, ignored or obfuscated by liberals.

    "Our life here is truly hellish. Fortunately, my soldiers are very brave and tougher than the enemy. What is more, their private beliefs make it easier to carry out orders which send them to their death. They see only two supernatural outcomes: victory for the faith or martyrdom. Do you know what the second means? It is to go straight to heaven. There, the houris, God's most beautiful women, will meet them and will satisfy their desires for all eternity. What great happiness! This is Islam, an absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, a rotting corpse which poisons our lives."

    "The Islamic conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history.

    "A very important factor which is making it almost impossible for Hindu-Muslim unity to become an accomplished fact is that the Muslim cannot confine their patriotism to any one country. I had frankly asked the Muslims whether in the event of any Mohammedan power invading India, would they (Muslims) stand side by side with their Hindu neighbours to defend their common land or join the invaders. I was not satisfied with the reply I have obtained from them – 'under no circumstances is it permissible for any Mohammedan, whatever be his country, to stand against any Mohammedan.' "

    "Over a billion people believe in Allah without truly knowing what Allah supposedly stands for or what he really demands of them. And the minority that do understand continue to be Moslems because they have redefined their morality and ethics to fit within the teachings of Islam, which are floridly lacking in morality. They therefore redefine what is good and evil in order to fit their lives into what is preached by Islam, instead of examining Islam to see if it fits within the good life. Backwards thinking, imposed by a backward religion."
    —- Bertrand Russell (British philosopher, historian, logician, mathematician, and pacifist)

    "The object of jihad is to bring the whole world under Islamic law. In an Islamic state, there is in principle no law other than the shar'ia, the Holy Law of Islam. The idea that any group of persons, any kind of activities, or any part of human life is in any sense outside the scope of religious law and jurisdiction is alien to Muslim thought."

    "All religions are exclusive, but Islam is quite notably so, and immediately it developed into a state which seemed to be all of a piece with the religion. The Koran is its spiritual and secular book of law. Its statutes embrace all areas of life…and remain set and rigid; the very narrow Muslim mind imposes this nature on many nationalities and thus remolds them for all time (a profound, extensive spiritual bondage!) This is the power of Islam in itself… The very reason and excuse for existence, the holy war, and the possible world conquest, do not brook any other form. The strongest proof of real, extremely despotic power in Islam is the fact that it has been able to invalidate, in such large measure, the entire history (customs, religion, previous way of looking at things, earlier imagination) of the peoples converted to it. It accomplished this only by instilling into them a new religious arrogance which was stronger than everything and induced them to be ashamed of their past."

    "In the case of the Mohammedan world, religion has seemingly affected every detail of life with its prescriptions and requirements…[N]o other religion, as it conquered new territory, has so completely and quickly wiped out even the culture of the conquered people and imposed upon their total life new ways and customs, often a new language, as has the Mohammedan religion…Islam can truly be described as totalitarian. By a million roots, penetrating every phase of life, all of them with religious significance, it is able to maintain its hold upon the life of the Moslem peoples."

    "Its [Islam's] governments are not governments. It makes life barren and empty. It encourages a savage pride and cruelty. It makes men tyrants or slaves, women puppets, religion the submission to an infinite despotism."
    —-James Freeman Clarke, American abolitionist, theologian, author of “Ten Great Religions—An Essay in Comparative Theology”, 1871

    "There is no such thing as Islamophobia. Bigotry and racism exist, of course—and they are evils that all well-intentioned people must oppose. And prejudice against Muslims or Arabs, purely because of the accident of their birth, is despicable. But like all religions, Islam is a system of ideas and practices. And it is not a form of bigotry or racism to observe that the specific tenets of the faith pose a special threat to civil society. Nor is it a sign of intolerance to notice when people are simply not being honest about what they and their co-religionists believe… It is not at all clear how we should proceed in our dialogue with the Muslim world. But deluding ourselves with euphemisms and pandering to the religious sensitivities of Muslims is not the answer. There is much about Islamic culture that should appall us. The treatment of women in Muslim communities throughout the world is unconscionable. All civilized nations must unite in condemnation of a theology that now threatens to destabilize much of the earth. Muslim moderates, wherever they are, must be given every tool necessary to win a war of ideas with their coreligionists. Otherwise, we will have to win some very terrible wars in the future."
    —-Sam Harris, September 20, 2006, liberal American author, neuroscientist

    The Muslim conquests, down to the 16th century, were for the Hindus a pure struggle of life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and the populations massacred, with hundreds of thousands killed in every campaign, and similar numbers deported as slaves. Every new invader made (often literally) his hills of Hindus skulls. As a contribution to research on the quantity of the Islamic crimes against humanity, we may mention that the Indian population decreased by 80 million between 1000 (conquest of Afghanistan) and 1525 (end of Delhi Sultanat).

    This is not intense debate…this is intense hate!? I pity you people with such dark hearts…then you have the nerve to call Islam/Muslims violent when you can think/write such horrid thoughts? I'm glad you're but a minority in the world & will, because of your narrow perspectives, remain as such even dwindling in number! That's better than any victory a sword or a gun can achieve ;) peace y'all

      you’re not really reading the qur’an.. i have.. i’m an ex-muslim, and i wholeheartedly agree to what this article says.. if you’re brave, you would read not just some portions of qur’an that you like, but also portions that you don’t like. read all of it again.. and while you’re at it, also read hadith completely, not just hadith that you always considered good…
      ..peace..

      • I_Marz

        Well you're twice mistaken my friend…I read the Quran several times, as well as the Bible as I was previously an atheist and a none believer. I don't ever refer to the hadith as its after all, man made, much like the Bible though both perhaps are God inspired. What I get from both scriptures, the most prevailing message "do unto your brother…" and that we are all each others keepers. All true Muslims adhere to this message & most EDUCATED people know thats a FACT! So I suggest if you are truly seeking wisdom, go back and read the Quran again and see all the beautiful, peaceful advise within. After all, ALL monotheistic religions are from the SAME God…no?

    Magnificent job! This is the strongest and finest article I've read by Bosch Fawstin so far. It also subtly frames the argument well, and made me rethink a few minor points. He's a powerful and impressive cultural warrior. The forces of evil and illiberalism better watch out! :-)

    I especially like the way he notes non-activist Muslims are "not on our side either," and that it is "the very rare Muslim who helps us against Jihad." Other good points are "behind their boast that they love death is the fact that they hate life," and "post-9/11, the defense of our culture, our values, our very lives has been optional, but our defense of Islam has been absolute." This article also accurately states that "our problem is not 'Islamophobia' but Islamophilia," and highlight "today's Big Lie, 'Islam means peace'." Finally, among the many other well-written and rather coruscating observations, this piece observes "We've tried everything since 9/11 except real war. War is the answer to Jihad."

    That said, as a true radical and firebrand, there are a few tiny points I would slightly take issue with.

    Firstly, I think it's more accurate and helpful to identify them as "non-activist Muslims," rather than non-Muslim or non-practicing Muslims. The obvious problem with these guys is that even the nicest and best among them are a continuous objective threat to become "religious" and turn activist.

    Second, the article didn't point out the concrete and practical need to hammer and bomb the leadership of the dictatorships of Pakistan, Iran, and Saudi Arabia, among others. The nukes of Pakistan are an especial menace.

    Third, it didn't didn't point our the need for, and efficacy of, loud, energetic propaganda and an intellectual war against the philosophy of Islam. This would cost little in money and lives, and could win the War On Islam all by itself, and quickly. All those Muslim tyrannies need to be swamped in pro-Western liberal and anti-Islamic radio, t'v', and internet education.

    This high-quality piece inspires other lightly-differing, nuanced ideas and bullet points as well. Maybe about the value of deportation and immigration control, as well as the philosophic and cultural protection mainstream Christianity lends to Islam.

    Still, a truly outstanding article in a major publication!!

  • ObamaYoMoma

    <l>My name is Bosch and I’m a recovering Muslim.

    In other words, you are a blasphemous apostate, that must be executed per the dictates of Islam. Indeed, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists. A few of them are violent jihadists, while the vast overwhelming majority of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few that are not jihadists like you, for instance, are not Muslims at all but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    <l>Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t. </l>

    Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslim [apostates] who don’t aren’t.

    <l>I’ve been around Muslims my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam. </l>

    Most of them? According to what empirical evidence? Your singular perception and assumptions? Yeah right. Sorry, but that's not good enough. Indeed, without empirical evidence to support your personal observations no one in their right mind can believe what you are claiming.

    <l>The problem I have with many of these essentially non-Muslim Muslims, especially in the middle of this war being waged on us by their more consistent co-religionists, is that they give the enemy cover. </l>

    Here's your problem Bosch, even Muslim apostates like you living in the West can become blinded by PC multiculturalism to a certain degree over time. As what you are naively mislabeling as being non-Muslim Muslims are actually non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists.

    Indeed, jihad, in stark contrast to terrorism, can be both violent and non-violent. As a matter of fact, non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad relative to violent jihad occurs astronomically far more prevalently today than does the violent varieties of jihad. Yet because jihad, which can be both violent and non-violent, per the dictates of PC multiculturalism is always conflated and morally equated with terrorism, which as its name implies is always only violent, the non-violent stealth and deceptive varieties of jihad as a result occur today completely completely under the radar unopposed, undetected, and unacknowledged. In other words, because your perception has been impaired to a certain extent by PC multiculturalism, you consider violent jihadists to be terrorists and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists to be those non-Muslim Muslims you are sounding the alarm about.

    Thus, to a degree because you are a Muslim apostate and have a lot of experience with interacting with Muslims, you are at least aware of the problem. However, you need to tweak to a certain extent your understanding of the situation to cancel out the ill effects of PC multiculturalism on your perception. As a matter of fact, the many varieties of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad being employed by the Islamic world today relative to the violent varieties of jihad are actually far more detrimental in the long run to the future security of the West than the violent varieties.

    In addition, the faction of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists relative to the faction of violent jihadists is astronomically far larger. Further, the non-violent stealth and deceptive faction of jihadists see violent jihad attacks – like the 9/11 jihad attacks – as being extremely counterproductive and potentially harmful because it invites unwanted close scrutiny, attention, and focus on Islam.

    For instance, the most prevalent form of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad employed by the Islamic world against the West today that occurs completely unopposed, undetected, and unacknowledged, thanks to PC multiculturalism that pervades and infects our society, is mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage to the West for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest, and violent jihad attacks like the 9/11 jihad attacks, which inevitably invites unwanted close scrutiny, attention, and focus on Islam, could potentially lead to Islam being outlawed in the West and mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage being banned and reversed. Which would deal an extremely severe blow to the Islamic world's stealth global jihad.

    Hence, the first and foremost priority needs to be education to make Americans aware of the true reality of Islam as opposed to the current false PC multicultural paradigm whereby Islam is believed to be a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists that is being crammed down everyone's throats by both political parties and the so-called MSM, which, by the way, includes Fox News.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    So while I understand that most Muslims are not at war with us, they’ve proven in their silence and inaction against jihad that they’re not on our side either, and there’s nothing we can say or do to change that……While it’s true that jihadists don’t represent most Muslims, they do represent Islam.

    Actually, that perception is completely false, thanks again to the impact that PC multiculturalism has had on your perception of the world. The reality is per the dictates of the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH have an obligatory duty in Islam to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme. Indeed, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for RADICAL MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, and the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for EXTREMIST MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, and the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for ISLAMIST MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, while at the same giving an exemption and free pass to MODERATE MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah. Instead the sixth and most important pillar makes it an obligatory duty for ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme. No exceptions.

    Hence, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists. A tiny minority of them are violent jihadists, while the vast overwhelming majority of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few of them like you, for instance, that are not jihadists are not Muslims at all, but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    Islam wasn’t hijacked by a “small minority of extremists” on 9/11, it was hijacked by a very small minority of moderates whose embarrassment in being associated with such an immoderate religion leads them to engage in moderate truth telling about it, proving their irrelevance as allies.

    Actually, the existence of moderate Islam, peaceful Islam, radical Islam, and extremist Islam, just like the existence of peaceful Muslims, moderate Muslims, radical Muslims, extremist Muslims, and Islamist Muslims are all false PC multicultural myths. In reality there is on MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX ISLAM and MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS.

    –continued below

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Following 9/11, the only thing George W. Bush knew about Islam was that it was a religion, and that apparently was a good enough reason for him to exonerate it as he did…“Nothing this evil could come from religion.” But 9/11 did come from a religion. Whatever else 9/11 was, it was an act of faith. But then why don’t most Muslims engage in jihad?

    Actually, the word ISLAM in Arabic means “submission” and the word MUSLIM in Arabic means “one who submits.” As a matter of fact, Islam is not a faith-based religion, since Islam requires total, complete, and unconditional submission to the will of Allah.

    Thus, unlike in true faith-based religions where adherents are perfectly free to question and even challenge the texts and tenets of their respective religions and to even leave their respective religion or even convert to another religion altogether if they so desire, in Islam, on the other hand, because the freedom of conscience is forbidden, those same actions, blasphemy in the first instance and apostasy in the second, are capital offenses.

    Indeed, what true faith-based religions also punish blasphemy and apostasy under the pain of death? The answer, of course, is none of them, irrefutably proving at the same time that Islam is not a true faith-based religion.

    Therefore, since Islam is not a true faith-based religion as it masquerades as being, what exactly is Islam? The answer is Islam is a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology that masquerades as being a religion to dupe the gullible societies it intends to eventually subjugate into a very draconian from of Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme.

    As a matter of fact, Islam is far closer to Communism than it is to being a religion, as just like Communism, Islam seeks world domination, and the end result of Islam, exactly like Communism, is totalitarianism and lots and lots of misery.

    Hence, it is imperative that Islam be outlawed in America and mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, which is really non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme, be banned and reversed ASAP.

    As a matter of fact, Muslims never ever migrate to the West or anywhere else for that matter to assimilate and integrate, but instead to eventually subjugate and dominate via the eventual imposition of Sharia for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme.

    In fact, anywhere and everywhere mass Muslim immigration is occurring today in the world, just like clockwork the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants flat out refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form segregated Muslim enclaves that in time eventually morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia as fifth columns and in direct contravention to the laws of the states in which they reside. Indeed, the government of France a few years ago identified 758 Muslim no-go zones in France alone.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    And Bush saying “Islam is peace” shortly after 9/11 gave the enemy a gift they couldn’t have foreseen.

    Indeed, instead of proclaiming Islam to be a Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists in response to the 9/11 jihad attacks that killed 3,000 innocent Americans and to also pander for Muslim votes, GWB should have outlawed Islam and banned and reversed mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage ASAP, as common sense dictates that zero Muslim jihadists living in America as a fifth column equals zero jihadist attacks in America.

    Then to make matters far worse, GWB used the 9/11 jihad attack like a Dhimmicrat on steroids as a crisis to justify doubling the size, scope, and power of the federal government via the creation of the very intrusive Patriot Act, the gargantuan and totally useless Department of Homeland Security, the extremely invasive TSA, and the humongous and completely incompetent National Intelligence Directorate, ostensibly to protect the homeland, but in reality to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage via the creation of a false sense of security. Indeed, each Muslim immigrant we allow into America incrementally increases the probability of violent jihad attacks and at the same time also facilitates stealth demographic conquest. Thus, the truth is we are really more vulnerable to violent jihad attacks today than we were before 9/11.

    Then inevitably the first time the economy headed south in 2008, predictably federal budget deficits and the national debt both skyrocketed through the roof. Yet, no one in the Republican Party and the Dhimmicrat Party today are proposing that we outlaw Islam and ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage as a way of getting our financial house back in order.

    Thus, we are considering massive budget cuts, massive tax increases, and even implementing draconian cuts to our military today that will inevitably open the door for the forces of totalitarianism to become predominant in the world, and we are doing all of this contemplating unfortunately to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. Not to mention as well, can anyone point to another immigrant group besides Muslims that cost nearly as much to accommodate?

    Indeed, it couldn’t be any more obvious that the Republican Party and the Dhimmicrat Party today are really two sides of the same completely incompetent Leftwing coin.

    In addition, instead of implementing a new American strategy of containment to contain the growth, spread, and expansion of Islam, GWB launched a new war on the Western manifestation only of terrorism, which indicates that GWB was more than just a few cards short of a full deck, which, by the way, inevitably turned into the two biggest strategic blunders ever in American history that caused thousands of American troops to be either killed or maimed and at the same time trillions of dollars to be wasted all for nothing.

    Meanwhile, instead of the RINO Republicans accepting and acknowledging their responsibility for creating the two biggest strategic blunders ever in American history, they are instead trying to lay the blame for their inevitable failures on Obama. Indeed, this country is like a soap opera.

    Am deeply grateful for this comprehensive article from the horse's mouth which confirmed all my suspicions and assumptions and clarifies the whole issue. The only salvation for the world will be mass apostasy by the world's Muslims which, of course, is a dream. The alternative will be another Crusade that may reduce the global population by 25%. A good example of taqiyya in the comment columns is the response by I_Marz who simply copied and pasted the same b.s. over and over again in response to various comments, heavy-handedly exercising the Hitlerian theory that a lie big enough and told often enough will be accepted as truth.

    This is, very likely, the best essay ever penned about Islam. This should be the preamble to every book published in the West from now until the final defeat of Islam.

    The only way that Nazism was defeated in Germany was because it was discredited and scrubbed out of Germany’s institutions, legal codes and social mores. Same with Shinto.
    Alas, this was not done after the fall of Communism in Russia. And to all those countries that were liberated since 9/11. No wonder that they are all crawling back to their old head-chopping/stone-throwing/acid-throwing habits of yore.

      No, I’m afraid you missed the first main point of this excellent essay.

      MOST Muslims are moderates.
      But there is no such thing as “moderate Islam.”

      Islam the religion, Islam the ideology of monotheistic conquest — that is a product of the Muslim scriptures: the Quran, the Hadith and the Sunnah. Muslims, the people, are a product of many different influences — including Islam. Most Muslims are moderate and peaceful, and their sin against the non-Muslim world is mainly one of omission: that is, they don’t oppose or speak out against shariah law, against the tyrants and the jihadists.

      Maybe the moderate Muslims stay silent because they know that the scriptures of their religion mandate shariah law and violent jihad, and they don’t want to oppose the Quran and become infidels themselves. (Apostasy is punishable by death in Islam. So is heresy, at least any significant heresy.) Maybe they fear persecution from other Muslims, or maybe they even fear persecution from non-Muslims if the truth about the violent nature of true Islam were better known.

      There could be many reasons for their silence; but none of them is an adequate moral excuse. Sadly, moral cowardice is a pervasive human condition, a sickness of the psyche or soul that is not limited to Muslims.

      “Don’t judge the Muslims that you know by Islam,
      and don’t judge Islam by the Muslims that you know.”

It’s a good place to start doing research on many things, because you can often find links and references there. But you need to be judicious in reading wikipedia, and sort the wheat from the chaff.

    Its inbreeding also causes mental and physical defects.

    Go to Anti-Cair for starters. Whitehead keeps abreast about what this group is doing and who is acting against them.

    Sure, we have bad apples, but you have many more in your brethren: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=musli

    What about the Israeli who had his eyes spooned out while he was still alive. What about all the videos of Muslims literally mob attacking one or two Jews and literally ripping them apart.

    Stop the Straw Man game, reform your violent brethren and leave us alone.

    I'm not anyone's brother, least of all yours. It's a shame you decided to live in the free secular world. Wouldn't you be more comfortable in the god-addled, male supremicist, Muslim one? Of course you've already been infected with anti-Muslim values –as indicated by your stated respect for the right of others to speak their opinions –followed immediately by your assertion that anyone who isn't stupid agrees with you. But I'm sure you're trying.

    And no. No unity for me, thanks. I prefer individual liberty.

    Fair enough…to each his/her own & that's all the effort you deserve from me!
