Facing the Truth About Islam

Bruce Bawer is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center and the author of “While Europe Slept” and “Surrender.” His book "The Victims' Revolution: The Rise of Identity Studies and the Closing of the Liberal Mind" is just out from Broadside / Harper Collins.

There were “mere anecdotes” aplenty.  Amjad Mahmood Khan told unsettling stories about the persecution of his fellow Ahmadiyya Muslims in the Islamic world.  Marshall talked about the feminist Taslima Nasreen, who “had to flee Bangladesh for her life because her writings were accused of being ‘against Islam’”; about Nobel-winning novelist Naguib Mahfouz, who lives “under constant protection” in his native Egypt “after being stabbed by a young Islamist”; and about Ali Mohaqeq Nasab, “imprisoned by the Karzai government for publishing ‘un-Islamic’ articles that criticized stoning as a punishment for adultery.”

British barrister Paul Diamond discussed some of the high-profile cases in which he’s been involved – such as that of a Christian airline employee who was prohibited from wearing a cross on the job even though members of other faiths were allowed to wear religious symbols.  And Mark Durie, a linguist, human rights activist, and Anglican vicar in Melbourne, provided a rivetingly detailed chronicle of the notorious trial in Australia of two pastors for vilifying Islam, at the end of which the pastors were ordered never to “express their views about Islam in public” again and forced “to take out prominent advertisements…reporting the findings against them, at an estimated cost of over $50,000.”  (The pastors won on appeal, but while their Muslim accusers had been represented pro bono, the pastors ended up hundreds of thousands of dollars out of pocket.)

Can such conferences make a difference?  The fact that the audience stayed for hours to listen attentively to paper after paper made it clear that they were interested in what they were hearing; their visible and audible reactions to many of the “mere anecdotes” indicated that these stories, which have been largely ignored by mainstream media, were new to them; and the questions they asked at the end of the day showed that they had taken it all very seriously, that they were shaken by much of what they had learned, and that they didn’t want it to end with just talk.  What could be done about all this?

Well, one thing they could do is to use their own positions to draw attention to these matters and help bring the wall of PC silence and fearful self-censorship crashing down.  On the way to and from the caucus room, I passed the office of the courageous Representative Pete King of New York, whose hearings on the radicalization of American Muslims have brought to the awareness of Congress, and in turn the American people, the extremism of supposedly mainstream U.S. Muslim organizations and mosques and the danger posed by creeping sharia to American freedom.  Imagine a Congress with ten Pete Kings, a hundred Pete Kings – legislators who realize that taking seriously “mere anecdotes” about the consequences of the Islamization of the West means nothing more or less than taking seriously the lives of the people who pay your salary and whose constitutional liberties you’ve sworn to uphold.

One thing’s for sure: if we want to preserve freedom of speech in an age when celebrated writers and artists, military leaders and police chiefs, and once-great newspapers can be cowed by the fear of being called Islamophobes (or of having their homes or offices blown to bits), we need more anti-jihadist heroes like Pete King – and we need them, most desperately of all, in the corridors of government power.  Unfortunately, as that fiasco in Arlington so vividly underscored, our high-level public servants have tended to be among the smoothest and most accomplished of Islam’s appeasers and whitewashers.  Let’s hope that the “mere anecdotes” aired at the Cannon House Office Building on November 4 reached one or two influential people who can mount a real challenge to that disgraceful state of affairs.

  • Ahmed

    This is a deeply Islamophobic and racist article, which is lying on the Islamic faith. I'm an American Muslim but I'm just as American as you. There was a time when there were quotas on Jewish immigration and the number of Jewish students at academic institutions, and you are promoting hatred of the new bogeyman of America, Muslims. Muslims in America are here to stay.

    • Frank

      There is no such thing as Islamophobia. It is a made up term to shut anybody who dares to be critical of Islam in places where there are not enough Muslim to kill its critics.

      • jacob

        CONGRATULATIONS !!!!
        SHORT, SWEET AND STRAIGHT TO THE POINT….
        I watched yesterday ANDERSON's program at Channel 33, another whittewash
        simlar to TLC's…

        How come however, that nobody (save for somebody like Fox News SEAN HANNITY) never dare asking Muslims whether they have to take verbatum
        and fully everything ordered in their Koran and all other "holy" books and if
        so, do they fully accept that Jews are descendents of apes and pigs and
        must be exterminated, as well as people of all other faiths who refuse to
        convert to Islam.
        And whether, since as a rule, Muslims (and morons such as JOY BEHAR
        and WHOOPI GOLDBERG) blame all Muslim atrocities on their "extremists"
        whether all those dancing and giving out candy in the streets of QUEENS,
        NY on 9/11, while people were jumping to their deaths from the WTC
        windows, WERE ALSO EXTREMISTS ?????

      • StephenD

        Frank, I'm trying a new term: "Islamoloather." I am not an Islamophobe because I don't fear Islam. I am an Islmoloather because I LOATHE Islam.

        • johnnywoods

          I like that Stephen. I think I will use it too. johnnywoods a confirmed "Islamoloather".

        • Anamah

          Would you please tell me the meaning of loather???

          • Den

            It means 'hater'

    • BIG IRISH

      new bogeyman? maybe you can explain why there have been almost 20 thousand acts of islamic terror since 911…name one peaceful islamic country…islam has been nothing but violent since its founder mohammed (pissbeuponhim) invented this ideology in his vile, moronic, pedophiliac, insane mind…here to stay?…TOO BAD!

      • randy

        the catholic church is full of pediphiles

        • Thorn

          The Catholic church is no better than Islam. Both are abominations.

    • Jayson Rex

      Ahmed, you are an optimist: Muslims are NOT here (in America) to stay. As soon as the Supreme Court will confirm that Islam is NOT a religion but a totalitarian ideology all Muslims will have to leave US. They will nove, together with the "palestinians" to, say, Saudi Arabia somewhere between Mecca and Medina. By the way, when you leave US, don't forget to take your tent and some food for your camel. And don't beat your wife until the day you reach Rihad. OK?

      • aspacia

        Jayson, the SCJ's will not do this. Remember that Satanism is guaranteed by our Constitution. The KKK and Nazis are not outlawed as well.

        • Thorn

          Believe me, Satanists and the KKK are kinder than Islamic lunatics.

      • Anamah

        Just a minute Jayson… If the Muslim is an American respecting everybody rights, why should that person leave the country? That is wrong…. I am thinking on good, normal people who happens to be Muslims but normal people not practicing the hysterical religion and without any kind of prejudice against others. Do you agree about that?

        • Thorn

          No because at the core it's the same Islam. The "good, normal" Muslims are loaded guns just waiting to go off.

        • wolfy ghalkhani

          Muslims are sort of behaving themselves at present. but as their numbers continue to grow, they will show their true colors. Driving through our country's inner city and seeing the Wahabbi black converts walking the streets in droves should make any decent American shudder. they are Islam's future army and they will kill any 'infidel" they come across. How do I know this because they have told me straight to my face. ( I work as a community health nurse in philadlephia).Islam is a threat to our constitution and the common good of the people, and therefore should not be allowed to grow and fester. Take a look at the Coptics in Egypt. That is our future if we don't get rid of these lizard eaters now and forever.

        Ignorance is bliss.

    • SAsha

      • MRobs

        Amen sister!

    • ObamaYoMoma

      I'm an American Muslim but I'm just as American as you.

      Not really…per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam – you are a jihadists. Indeed, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists. A few are violent jihadists, while most are non-violent jihadists, and the few that are not jihadists are not Muslims at all but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam should be executed.

      Therefore, mass Muslim immigration to the West must be banned and reversed ASAP and Islam abolished.

      • Anamah

        I must admit you says the truth…Sadly the Koran is terribly offensive and sadistic. Beginning with the guy Mohamed wasn't really a normal man. It is hard to understand what kind of people can take him seriously.

      • Poplu

        I think al of you don't know the true meaning of Islam. You don't even know the meaning of Jihad and start talkign about something which someone explain and manipulet the meaning of it.

        I hate those people who killed inocent people in the name of Islam which is strictly prohiobited in Quran. If Islam is bad for your culture and country, why this religion is the fastest growing relegion in the world?

        • ObamaYoMoma

          I think al of you don't know the true meaning of Islam.

          Let's see…Islam in Arabic means submission and Muslim in Arabic means one who submits. Indeed, each Muslim is required to submit totally, completely, and unconditionally to the will of Allah. Thus, in stark contrast to true faith-based religions, in Islam the freedom of conscience is forbidden, which means that Muslims aren't allowed to question or challenge the texts and tenets of Islam and they are also not allowed to leave Islam or convert to a true faith-based religion as well, as blasphemy in the first instance and apostasy in the second, are capital offenses. Proving irrefutably at the same time also that Islam is not really a faith-based religion. In reality, Islam is really a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology masquerading as being a faith-base religion 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.

          You don't even know the meaning of Jihad and start talkign about something which someone explain and manipulet the meaning of it.

          What do you mean I don't know the meaning of jihad? Jihad in Islam is the sixth and most important pillar of which Islam stands, as the sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for EVERY MUSLIM 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 for just 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 for just extremist Muslims to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, while at the same time giving an exemption and free pass for so-called moderate Muslims to fight jihad in the cause of Allah. Instead, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty for ALL MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah. No exceptions.

          Therefore, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists. A few of them are violent jihad, while most of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few that aren't jihadists aren't Muslims at all but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam should be executed.

          I hate those people who killed inocent people in the name of Islam which is strictly prohiobited in Quran.

          With all due disrespect dude, that is taqiyya, as the sword verses that were issued just shortly before your pedophile Prophet kicked the bucket, abrogates, that is supersedes and replaces, any and all Koranic verses they conflict with and contradict via the doctrine of abrogation, which holds that when two or more verses of the Koran come into conflict with each other, the latter issued verse abrogates the earlier issued verse, and the doctrine of abrogation is universally accepted by all major schools of Islamic jurisprudence in both Shi'a and Sunni Islam. Indeed, maybe you can get away with duping gullible useful idiots on some leftwing websites, but it won't fly over here dude. Nice try though.

          If Islam is bad for your culture and country, why this religion is the fastest growing relegion in the world?

          Uhm….let me guess, because Muslim males use their four wives as baby factories for the purpose of demographic conquest to make Islam supreme. Then when the oldest wife gets to the point where she can't produce any more babies, she is divorced and disgraced, and then sent back home to be replace by probably a child bride sold into sexual slavery by her father.

    • Frank Meyer

      You are showing absolute ignorance about Islam. Muhammad was a pedophile who married a girl at 6 and bedded her at 9. Do you beleive seriously that is normal regadless of what century you are in. Sick perosn in my book lady, and we do not want sick religious, political, and military wackos in our mist. We have enough home grown fruitcakes to deal with.

      There is no such thing as moderate Islam.

      • Anamah

        But we have American Muslims… So? I think the solution can be changing the textbooks of Islamic Schools and Mesquites. The books must be normal books without any kind of antisemitism or hate against other religions or ideas. I do not understand how that has not been banned already. Is like to make study children Mein Kamp! Both kind a sick morbid literature, the indoctrination of the same disease.

    • MRobs

      You are a Muslim – that says it all. Muslims are the new bogeymen because you have made yourselves bogeymen. Look at all of the Islamic countries on the planet – nothing but 3rd world cesspools that contribute absolutely nothing but carnage to the rest of the planet. Muslims are savages because that is what they are taught from birth. Your so called religion promotes every perversion known to man. Get your head out of your a$$!

      Islam calls for the dominance over non-Muslims, so non-Muslims should oppose it. Muslims across the country are calling for Sharia Law. The threat is real, and it WILL be fought. All withing the law, of course.

      PHOBIA MEANS FEAR ~ WE FEAR MUSLIMS BECAUSE OF YOUR TREACHERY AND STEALTHY INFILTRATION INTO OUR GOVERNMENT AND EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE .
      BLASPHEMY ~ REJECTION OF THE ONLY TRUE GOD, JEHOVAH AND HIS HOLY SPIRIT. INFIDEL ~ A NON BELIEVER IN JEHOVAH . ALL MUSLIMS ARE INFIDELS AND BLASPHEMERS . WE KNOW THE AGENDA OF ISLAM IS TOTAL CONTROL AND DOMINATION OF AMERICA AND TO RAISE THE FLAG OF ISLAM OVER OUR CAPITOL AND WHITEHOUSE – BUT WE WILL NOT ALLOW THAT. ALL MUSLIMS CAN CONFORM TO OUR RULES , LAWS AND TRADITIONS OR GET THE HELL OUT .

        Well said, americanadvocate.

    • Asher

      Maybe Ahmed would like to explain this verse Sura IX. 4..Immunnity Medina verse 4 And when the sacred months are passed, kill those who join other Gods with God wherever ye shall find them; and seize them besiege them and lay wait for them with every kind of ambush: but if they shall convert, and observe prayer, and pay the obligatory alms, then let them go their way, for God is Gracious and Merciful… Compare this to Jesus who said, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your father in heaven…..I chose a loving God, not a hateful–destructive God.

    • wolfy ghalkhani

      There is no such creature as an American Muslim. Muslims have no love of nationality its all about the Ummah, and only America stands in the way of the Ummah's complete subjugation of the world's people. So, don't try to pass off your BS on people like me. You are the hater.
      Ban Islam and save America.

    • US Patriot

      Ahmed, nobody fears Islam, we despise it. Coincidentally, you are not as American as the rest of us. Sorry, but you can't have two ideologies, Islam and Democracy; the two are mutually exclusive. Therefore, if you say you are Muslim, by default you are not American; you are Muslim. Sorry my man, you chose wrong!

    Thank you Kohana for stating the truth and only the truth about islam. I speak to people every day on the evils of islam. I show them the current news from around the world revealing islams criminal activities. It is a criminal diabolical evil inhumam disgusting and vile religion. Absolutely 0 muslims are to be trusted. They are ALL in the plot to kill the infidel and take over the world. They want to suffocate the life out of EVERY last non moslem.

    • johnnywoods

      Freedomrider, you are so correct since Muslims are permitted by their stupid religion to lie to infidels, that means all of us non-muslims. So in fact you trust a Muslim at your own peril. I trust none of them.

    • Asher

      There are so many resources who have exposed the truth about Islam, the public is much more aware of Taqiyya, (which is deception and lying which is deemed obligatory in the Koran to defeat the Infidel and the Jew, and the hatred that Islam feels for anyone who does not accept their false religion. ) Truth will continue to flow whether they intimidate or cause hardship for America. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayers, but the face of the Lord is against those who do Evil."

    A few years ago,when my precious granddaughter was ready to fly back home,I could go to the gate and stay with her till she got on the plane.Now I have to stay in the ticketing area and miss the last hour with her. I used to get my ticket and walk to the gate without having to go thru an x-ray and remove my shoes and metal objects. Can anyone tell me which religion's teachings and obedience to them caused these conditions to exist?

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Our federal government, which has been hijacked by the Leftist useful idiots of the jihadists, is bankrupting the country and usurping the freedom and liberties of the American people in order to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. Not to mention also that we are on the verge of hollowing out our military, again in order to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. I bet you never dreamed in a million years you would live long enough to see the day that would happen in America. Well, like me you were wrong.

      To me it's simple, outlaw Islam and ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. No Muslims living in America equals no jihad attacks. Indeed, if there were no Muslims living in America as a convenient fifth column prior to 9/11, there would have been no 9/11 jihad attacks. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure that out.

      Thus, ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration and then dismantle the useless Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, and the National Intelligence Directorate. Then apply the money we save to the deficits. Indeed, we are literally going bankrupt today, again to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, and its being done without our consent or our permission.

    of not moving its embassy to Jerusalem because of fear of offending the Arabs,
    since according to the rewritters of history, seems Jerusalem is part of MECCA,

    I would say Mr. Bawer, that it is time for you to run for office. I would love more of you in official capacity to at least give America a chance. Where do we sign up to get you on the ballot. You should be in Congress.
    Seriously, if you get something going to this end you may count on my support.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Imagine a Congress with ten Pete Kings, a hundred Pete Kings –

    Why would I want to imagine that? Congressman Pete King's hearings became hijacked by the Muslim Brotherhood and those hearings are noted especially for the misinformation about Islam that was espoused. Even Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller spoke out by writing articles expressing their disappointment because the King hearings were hijacked by Muslim Brotherhood operatives like Congressman Keith Ellis and used as a vehicle to spread misinformation.

    Indeed, there is no specific so-called radicalization process whereby a previously so-called moderate Muslim, which in itself is a false political correct myth, suddenly becomes morphed into a so-called radical Muslim, and then as a result starts murdering non-Muslims while hollering Allahu Akbar. That's a figment of imagination and another false political correct myth.

    The reality is per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, which makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for EVERY MUSLIM to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists. A few are violent jihadists, while most are non-violent jihadists, and the few that aren't jihadists aren't Muslims at all, but blasphemous apostates instead that per the dictates of Islam should be executed.

    Thus, the problem is because PC multiculturalism pervades our society, jihad is always conflated and morally equated with terrorism, which as its name implies always involves violence. However, jihad and terrorism are mutually exclusive and two entirely different things together. For instance, jihad can be both violent and non-violent, while terrorism is always violent as its name implies. Yet because Jihad is conflated with terrorism, which is always violent, it allows the many non-violent varieties of jihad to take place in our society totally unopposed and unacknowledged.

    For instance, mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme is a form of non-violent jihad that is totally unopposed and unacknowledged today, and the proof is in country after country and anywhere and everywhere mass Muslim immigration is taking place in the world today, the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants are forming Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia and flat out refusing to assimilate and integrate.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled that the light is finally starting to come on for many people. However, I would not credit Congressman Pete King as being an anti-jihad hero, as his hearings have been used as a vehicle to spread misinformation more than anything.

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    i s l a m IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    i s l a m strives for world domination.

    The q u r a n commands m u s l i m s to exercise jihad.

    The q u e r n commands muslims to establish s h a r i a h law.

    The q u e r n commands m u s l i m s to impose i s l a m on the entire world.

    i s l a m is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    i s l a m IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    i s l a m wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    s h a r i a h law is a law that controls every detail of life in a i s l a m i c society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the q u r a n is the call to j i h a d.

    J i h a d means a lot of things and is a r a b i c for battle.

    i s l a m means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    i s l a m and freedom, i s l a m and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

  • The concerned

    Friends, I am a Christian who was born & raised in Middle East among the Moslems. I think I know a little more about islam than average American. Our liders are constantly telling us that Islam is a religion of peace. That is absulutly fals. Just think how the Islam religion spred from a small town in to the middle & far east. It was not beeing spred by the word of love and compationate like Christianity. There were no disiples going hongry & poor to travel thru out and spred the word of love. Islam spred with the force of sord & killing & forcing people to accept it or be kiled. So dont tell me that this is peace.

  • Stuart Parsons

    Islam's own sources, Quran, Sunnah and the Sirahs of Ishaq, Tabari and kathir reveal that Muhammad MURDERED all who spoke out against him and with the support of his delude booty and sex motivated followers, he lied, plotted, tortured, kiled, robbed, ransomed and raped his way to absolute political and religious power. If you are a Muslim, might I respectfully recommend you read your 'religion's' own source material.

    Islam is Muhammad's great delusion. He received no messages from his imagined Allah. The Quran is not the revealed words of a genuine god, it is principally the words of the narcissistic Muhammad.

    There can be no doubt that Islam is a far greater threat to the future well-being of mankind than Fascism or communism ever were.

    • johnnywoods

      Mohamed got his so-called revelation of the koran from Gabriel. I am a little suspicious of his Gabriel who states that "Allah has no son" because the Gabriel who announced to Mary the birth of CHRIST called HIM the Son of the MOST HIGH. Hmmm seems to be a little contradiction here. Or maybe Mohamed`s "Gabriel" was a fake as is his god allah.

      Regrettably, many Muslims can't read and, since the Qur'an can only studied in Arabic, the literate members of the ummah have no idea what is in it as well.

      Tyranny is the child of ignorance.

    To Ahmed,

    The suffering of Europeans who live in DAILY FEAR-victimized by immigrant Muslims is dreadful. We don't want anyone to suffer such cruelty!

    Sweden is being destroyed. A low intensity civil war has already started. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QILt8mnZnMs

    When you click on the above link, the following is from the heartbreaking caption underneath:

    Sweden has imploded and there is nothing we can do about it until the next election. The crime and violence is out of control braking European records and the police resources are being cut back.

    There is a low level civil war ongoing that is affecting hundreds of communities. All of them have a large number of recent immigrants that came from north africa, arab and muslim countries. Most of them them have no understanding or tolerance for western cultures.

    Most of them have no basic understanding of local rules, traditions or culture cannot read or write, have never seen or used a bicycle, elevator, or thrashshute. In addition to this they have paid a large sum of money to be smuggled into sweden and be able to live on the social welfare system.

    The social system is collapsing under the pressures from the hundreds of thousands of immigrants that like a tsunami flooded our country in only 20 years. The effect is noticed in every part of the country, crime and the fear of violent crime is present everywhere. Social services are reduced and slipping away as asylumseekers get the best service before the swedes. The welfare offices are delaying all payments for weeks and months since they run out of cash.

    Swedes are no longer tolerating the disaster that our politicians have forced upon us. The fastest growing political parties are those who want to end the insane policies of radical extremist massimmigration that ultimately in the very near future will result in swedes becoming a minority.

    An example of the disaster is Trollhättan, Kronogården. Klockaregården is a carehome for elderly. Its surrounded by armed violent immigrant gangs, they shoot at the home, caregivers and elderly fear for their life but nobody will help them.

    Read political bloggers writing about the crisis:

    "Two pastors for vilifying Islam, were ordered never to “express their views about Islam in public” again and forced “to take out prominent advertisements…reporting the findings against them, at an estimated cost of over $50,000.” (The pastors won on appeal, but while their Muslim accusers had been represented pro bono, the pastors ended up hundreds of thousands of dollars out of pocket.)

    It is the leaders of Western nations who are deliberately and maliciously DESTROYING our freedom! Our leaders have brought massive numbers of Muslims into our countries and then our courts and leaders cooperate fully with the devout Muslim goal of destroying the freedom of intensely hated non-Muslim infidels. Our courts and leaders bow down low to Islam's god and demand that non-Muslims submit and surrender to Islam – PUNISHING non-Muslims for exercising what is supposed to be our right in Western countries – freedom of speech.

    The pastors told the TRUTH about Islam and were severely punished in Australia.

    It was for freedom and freedom of speech that the many brave heroes of the world wars fought and died and gave their lives for. Western courts and leaders spit on the graves of our heroes. And regard our freedom as something to stomp on.

    Islam is a festering boil in America and it must be lanced. Hopefully next year
    a new government will address the true problems of America and deportation
    of undesirables should be on the top of the list. Those who have subborned
    treason by way of undermining the American government and economy must
    be held responsible and dealt with severely………..For the non-American
    invaders, your days should be numbered and deportation will be the best
    thing you can hope for………………………………………………William

    • randy

      Non-american invaders? You must be talking about Christians who murdered and enslaved the true north americans when they were stealing the continent.

    • randy

      All white people should leave.

  • jewdog

    This growing awareness is encouraging. The fact is, Islam as a major political presence has only made itself felt in the last few years, and it takes time for a mass of people to learn about something hitherto ignored. Just look at how long it took to get a handle on economics and monetary policy after the Crash of 29, and there's still a long way to go. And it wasn't until Pearl Harbor that the menace of fascism was widely understood.
    Guys like Bruce Bawer just have to keep at it – and never give up, never, as Winston Churchill would say.

  • steven l

    The problem is not the Islamists of the world but the"left of the world" that joins anyone against the "right of the world".

  • Suzanne

    We are a brain dead nation. Anyone who didn't get it after 9/11 is insane.

    • randy

      Why did 911 happen. Was it all the meddling around the world that the U.S does?

  • kafirman

    Although catalyzed by 9/11, the migration of knowledge of Islam is slowed by the demographics of "reality" TV, soap operas, pornography and the other Opra genres. This migration of knowledge of Islam works from the ground up. Bush's infamous declaration, "Islam is a religion of peace," was the anti-thesis of scholarship and leadership. In the ten interleaving years, a core of porn resisters who have studied Islam have become educated and vocal. It is this nucleus on which the hope of this once great country lies. As Islamic atrocities pour through a media unshackled by the elite, slowly the boots on the ground types are gaining knowledge about Islam's war on civilization. The leaders are on the lowest totem. The highest totems have almost no leadership. Not even Peter King is openly questioning the wisdom of granting 501(c)3 status to an organization which promotes sexual slavery (e.g., Koran 4:3) and religious apartheid (Koran 9:29). But the boots on the ground are agitating for real leaders. While Vijay Kumar was defeated, Allen West was victorious. Indeed FPM's excellent authors and commentators are one of forces of bring the leaders to the highest totems.

    A most facts-intensive post! Thanks, Bruce. Looking forward to also reading Bat Ye'or's criticism of "the Arabization of Jesus and the de-Judaization of the Bible to serve the Palestinian cause." [http://inside.fdu.edu/fdupress/03071704.html]

    Her premise is cemented by a Christian pastor in England, Paul Wilkinson, in his expose on the new unholy alliances in Christendom which will eventually serve the cause of the Islamist-driven destruction of the Jewish state. If we don't wake up. The second betrayal is coming — it is called "Christian Palestinianism." Please read more (as you have the time) @ http://www.slideshare.net/miscott57/christian-pal

    [Bravo, Front Page! Check this item which was observed on the surprising web.]

    Islam will "purify" Jews and Christians !

    Islam, part of the Living River of History, can affect even the 2012 US election!
    The "headwaters" of this River was Adam, according to Judaism, Christianity, Islam etc .
    In the OT (Deut. 28), "tributaries" wanting to join the River will be blessed while "distributaries" who want to flow away from it will be cursed. Those wishing to totally separate from the fresh Living River will end up as polluted, dying "oxbow lakes."
    In the OT we see Israelites repeatedly flowing away from God, then repenting and returning to Him; we also see heathen "oxbow lakes" creating their own "gods" and being allowed by God to plunder and kill the erring Israelites.
    Then, at the right time, the Living River took on new life with the arrival of the Promised One who offers "living water."
    In the 7th century Islam, drawing from both OT and NT, chose to be a distributary away from this River. Many scholars have viewed it as the final Antichrist: note "scourge" (Isa. 28), "Assyrian" (Mic. 5), "Euphrates" (Rev. 9) etc.
    God will allow this "scourge" to temporarily persecute and even kill apostate Jews (JINOs) and Christians (CINOs). Jews, especially in "entertainment," seem more expert in apostasy than Christians since Jews have been at it 2000 years longer than Christians have – but Christians apparently want to catch up to the Jews!
    It's apparent that others will join Islam in its end-time inquisition; its great oil wealth can captivate many leaders and already we are seeing apostate American leaders being bribed into turning against true American patriots.
    Those who ignore (or try to dilute or destroy) the God-ordained Living River of History will be swept down it to an ocean made by their own never-ending tears of agony and despair!

    Chez,

    It is important for American's and freedom loving people of the Western Culture to know what we face. Little Cain is from Saudi Arabia, and like his brethren is dangerous. His language is mild compared to what I have read and watched in ME media.

    That said, his post should be a wake-up call, and possibly deportation back to his homeland. Oh, he is on Facebook.

  • pagegl

    Chez, please do not let one cretin drive you away.

    What HC said was tremendously egregious, but, the leftist mind, in my experience, regards such things as collateral damage that is acceptable for the cause. Consider that he exposed himself for what he is. I decided to quit responding to his posts because it is clear to me that he is way more radical than he would have us believe and any reasonable information, no matter how well supported, isn't going to make any difference to him and his ilk.

    For my ulterior motives I would hate to see you leave; I do like to read your posts.

  • StephenD

    So you know, I've been posting since

    "I LOVE that no one is responding to Herman "killing Jewish kids is morally legitimate" Caintonette.
    Invalidation is what he deserves here on FPM."

  • Mike Elmore

    Chez, how are his rants any worst than what Islam really represents, just a different twist. We need this kind of crap to remind up that there are people that do believe this and have the divine mandate to say it. More important, we need your posts to to show what BS it is. Don't do it, between you and Daniel Greenfield I'll have less to look forward to in the morning..elmore

  • WilliamJamesWard

    The prevaricator is true to the end of his name tonette (cheap plastic flute).
    When one leaves there is another to take the place, some more odious than
    others and Herman is quite clever mazing around truth to come up with
    inherent distortion and outright lies. He should be mostly ignored but not
    completely, not to the extent of leaving the field, please reconsider.
    Regards, William

    Actually, the communist movement was strong during the Depression, and it did call for an end for our government and Constitution.

  • Najeeb

    @ Kohana – (I absolutely support any decree that keeps Muslim immigrants out of this country). There is nothing you can do about it!!! Can you?!?!?! . It's the will of Allah for Islam to supersede everything and everybodyelse in this world. Know the truth and you'll be saved.

  • Thorn

    I agree, kohana. If we have to we'll hose down the entire country with pigs blood to keep the invaders out.

  • StephenD

    Najeeb, I blow my nose at you. I scrape my shoe on your plate. I fart in your general direction. I clean your goats hind quarters before you can "do it" with it (I know that will mess you up ~ you need it to smell just like your momma for you to get a stem). There, that is your "superseding” of me by your Allah. What's the problem? Doesn't he work for you too? If Islam is above me where are you? Maybe you aren't a part of it after all. Maybe you're just a tool. You want my opinion? I think folks like you are living proof that Arabs F**ked camels.

    At least, I hope that's not what he means, though it's not clear either way. If he does, then indeed he is foolish..

  • johnnywoods

    He said I was being "idiotic" so I responded in kind. I also stand by my statement about allah. Read the history of Mohammed and the evolution of Islam and see where the name "allah" comes from. Allah was the moon god, hardly qualifying to be a real God.
