The Muslim World is a World Where The Bad Guy Won

Bosch Fawstin is an Eisner Award-nominated cartoonist currently working on a graphic novel, The Infidel, featuring the anti-jihad superhero, Pigman. The first two chapters are now available in digital comic book form. Bosch’s first graphic novel is Table for One. He is also the author of ProPiganda: Drawing the Line Against Jihad, a print companion to The Infidel.


“The Muslim world” is a world where the bad guy won. It spends most of its time telling itself it’s good while damning the civilized world as evil, with full faith and no reason. But the comparative standard is getting to be too much for Muslims to deal with in a world where it’s becoming increasingly clear that Islam is not only our problem, but their problem — their greatest problem as a matter of fact.

Islam has crippled whatever ability Muslims might have had to compete with the civilized world, and the fruits of Western civilization reminds them of it every single day. The only way Islam can have its evil recognized as the unchallenged good in the world is for Muslims to obliterate its enemies, obliterate any and all moral standards, so that only the moral negation that is Islam is left standing. That will never happen unless we allow it to happen. This enemy fancies itself our would-be destroyer, but they’re only parasites feeding off of a West that is morally weak at this moment in history. In the words of Ayn Rand:

When men reduce their virtues to the approximate, then evil acquires the force of an absolute, when loyalty to an unyielding purpose is dropped by the virtuous, it’s picked up by scoundrels—and you get the indecent spectacle of a cringing, bargaining, traitorous good and a self-righteously uncompromising evil.

The Muslim world is counting on us to remain as morally weak as we currently are, because they know that if we began to show any kind of strength towards them, if we began to show a willingness to say the things that must be said, then we would be preparing ourselves to do the things that must be done. And that would be the beginning of the end of this thousand-year reign of terror begun by the bad guy who turned an entire part of the world into hell.

    Thank you Bosch for your courage and I wish we had a Bosch Fawstin in Europe. I, myself an immigrant, am worried about the future of Western civilization day and night. Europe embraced Communism and Nazism and now has adopted Islam as its ideology which is equal to Communism and Nazism combined and even worse. We have EU (much worse than the UN) destroying our freedom and democracy thanks to corrupt politicians and a population that no longer dare to stand for their values.

      David.

      Here in Britain, local council elections were held yesterday. It looks like 'our corrupt politicians' are being held to account and UKIP is surging.

      The worm is turning.

    The "religious" dogma of "moral relativism" has allowed the most repressive, regressive ideology – bar none – to co-op the west, pretending that they should ever be allowed a "seat" at the table of civilization. In fact, it is akin to allowing cannibals to be part of the "solution", as opposed to diagnosing them as the savages they are!

    This is not an exercise in hyperbole, not at all. The incalculable price of "moral relativism" – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/23/the-incalcula… …has brought us here – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/06/islam-barbari

      Adinak I like the image you gave. I just say Islam is like a gangrene. It needs to be amputated before its spreads further and kills its host.

    • Glennd1

      And you wonder why people call you a racist? Are you really dismissing the entire Muslim world, including it's culture and history of empire as "savage"? This is same tact that bigoted cur Pamela Geller uses – her game is to get Americans to conflate Zionism's struggle to conquer and occupy a chunk of Palestine with the Islamism that is rising against us. But that's nonsense. Backing Israel after '67 was the biggest mistake we've ever made as a nation. Most Americans don't know that the U.S. was highly critical of Israel's ethnic cleansing of 650,000+ Arab Muslims from their homes back in '48. In fact, the U.S. signed the first U.N resolution demanding the "right of return" for those Palestinians.

      Your bundling of everything together and then reducing Muslims to savages is classic propaganda. Someone once said you are former Mossad, what, are you just creating red meat for the trolls?

      • Defcon 4

        Then why don't you move back to whatever islamofascist cesspool strikes your fancy? Islamic states are all universally totalitarian cesspools where the kufr/infidel is persecuted and criticism of islam outlawed. Don't let the Mossad stop you, move to your islamofascist paradise now AHmed!

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "And you wonder why people call you a racist?"

        What's your theory? Articulate your full case please for critics of Islam showing "racism." I'd like to hear this theory for once.

        "Are you really dismissing the entire Muslim world, including it's culture and history of empire as "savage"?"

        Nope. We're describing an ideology that has the potential to drive any adherents to savagery. That doesn't make each one a savage per se. What do you call a code that demands removing the hands and or arms of thieves, a code supposedly that applies to all mankind for all time? That's the very definition of savage.

        PC adherents want to redefine everything and at the same time they promote Darwinism want to pretend that we're all just the same morally. People that promote these ideas usually can't even articulate the full justification coherently. Well I can, and that's why I know how bogus it is.

        It has ZERO to do with racial distinctions. It's the opposite of racism because it correctly identifies savagery is being inspired by malicious ideologies. It is truly anti-racist and we are the only true anti-racists. Calling us racist is sick and incoherent and shows a complete lack of understanding of your own rhetoric.

        I'm sure you're a sincere guy. I've met a lot of people like you. You're simply wrong and you haven't been exposed to the coherent arguments that would rectify the fallacies that drive your beliefs.

        Some of the rhetoric of the "Islam-o-phobes" only sounds like "hate speech" and racism because they're angry and not careful enough, and you've been programmed to respond to what Chris Matthews calls "dog whistles." This is yet another way to lay accusations at the feet of people who you don't understand. Rather than seeking illuminating discourse, you argue as if YOU CAN"T POSSIBLY BE WRONG. You're only wrong on approximately 95% of the things you say.

        "Most Americans don't know that the U.S. was highly critical of Israel's ethnic cleansing of 650,000+ Arab Muslims from their homes back in '48. In fact, the U.S. signed the first U.N resolution demanding the "right of return" for those Palestinians."

        And see where that went. Now you want us to blame Israel because that didn't happen and yet again, you're wrong. All you do is cite Israeli actions completely without any context as if their legitimate defense is really by Israeli design. Poor poor Palestinians. They didn't even refer to themselves as Palestinians then.

        The people with legitimate claims were and are treated fairly. You can't show otherwise. So what are you whining about? Oh yes, back to repeating propaganda.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        PS – The war started by Islamic jihadis against Israel has never ceased. Ever. It's been a continuous war. You want to present the intransigent aggressors as victims. That calls your thinking in to serious question. That's pretty much what we do.

        So many of you are so aggressive verbally that the reasonable people get angry too, and then you look for ways of describing their anger as "racism."

        It's a sad joke. We're descending in to savagery too. And you're not helping the side that wants true progress by the way.

        Quit calling them "Palestinians". The so-called "Palestinians" are not an ethnicity. They are an invented people (Newt Gingrich is right). The concept of a "Palestinian people" did not rise up until 1964 when Arafat, with backing from the Soviet Union and the KGB (as well as from the Naser dictatorship in Egypt), created the PLO. The fiction of a state of "Palestine" was made in Moscow. That's the reality.

    Simple acknowledgement….Our country and its future is at stake. The next 3 years will be a test,unlike anything most of us have ever experienced. Our country is being dominated by a low lying filth. We are morally and spiritually assaulted daily. Christian push back and Conservative values are really all we have to hold on to.This assault isn't spur of the moment…its been a century in the making. What our leaders have allowed to take hold here is unforgivable. I'll never forgive them. I think our Lord is going to want answers.

    No. It will never happen because God Almighty will never allow it to happen. Even a cursory glance at the Talmud, Torah or Bible demonstrates that He jealously guards His Holy Name. He has demonstrated repeatedly that His patience with humanity is not infinite in this regard.

            It is up to moral men to solve the problems that they have been granted dominion over. The problem of Islam is going to be Divinely solved because God spoke it so.

      The only explanation I can derive from several years of asking God WHY He let Mo exist and create Islam is that it is the vehicle of the Antichrist and the end time showdown between good and evil on a planetary scale. There really is no other explanation. Even communism/marxism was only created in the 1940s and most of the world has figured out it was a bad idea. Not so for Islam. And if you study the tenets of Islam and if you know your Bible, the fingerprints, MO, motives, rewards, style, all point directly to Islam being engineered by Satan. That means that Islam will continue to grow and spread until God decides the last chapters of Revelation need to actually happen. Joel Richardson recently wrote Mideast Beast which gives scriptural and historical evidence that the AC is Islamic and the Woman who rides the Beast is Saudi Arabia. I may not agree with every point he makes, but its a good read. The American church is dreadfully NOT prepared for the persecution that is coming. And we have ignored the daily deaths of Christians all over the Islamic controlled lands. Shame on us.

      • Looking4Sanity

        It has long been my logical conclusion that Islam was Satan's answer to Christ's “Final Solution”. It took Lucifer better than 600 years after Christ's resurrection to come up with a strategy to derail Jesus' sacrifice. Islam is what he settled on. You can't blame him for trying…it's his job! Fortunately, I've read the book and I already know how it all ends. So does Satan, and that's why he's flaming. His only consolation will be the idiots he's been allowed to suck in over the millennia…and they are LEGION!

        I knew a Hilda once. She married a Jewish abortion doctor who worked for the State (it was his second marriage and her first). They were VERY wealthy. She once stood on my porch and blasphemed the reputation of Christ. Her husband died of cancer the next year. Shortly after that and she went blind from macular degeneration before she also died of cancer five years later. She was barren and they left no heirs to their estate.

        I only knew one other woman named Hilda. She ran a country store and acted as a front man for her brothers moonshining business, providing him with a tax dodge for his corn and sugar purchases. Ironically, she fell victim to diabetes and was consumed one limb at a time, but not before she went blind. The doctors cut her up one piece at a time until there was nothing left to save. That's been my experience with people named Hilda.

        Good luck with that!

  • PhillipGaley

    But of course, "the bad guy wins": In every act of expressive character, adherents to Islam depict themselves as in tow to a criminal ideology, and not a religion, at all, . . . Islam does not rely on any sort of spiritual uplift because its doctrines are open to inquiry, but it does rely upon enforced patterns of behavior—and as is to be noticed be-heading or stoning of their own, or in child-suicide bombers among the—resulting in total disregard for human life, and this, extending even against their own otherwise innocent among them, . . . an ideology devised by "bad guys", for the utility and maintenance of "the bad guys", . . .

    Looking4Sanity: If you expect Muslim gangs to show up with box cutters, knives and clubs to rape your daughters, slit your throats, confiscate your property, and send your sons to a jute mill to work as slaves until they drop dead, what are you going to do? Throw a Torah or a Bible at them? Say at prayer at them? Your God Almighty has permitted all sorts of horrendous natural catastrophes, and permits Islam to advance over the bodies of uncounted millions. More people have died over 1,400 years of Islamic depredations than ever were killed by earthquakes, tidal waves, or other natural phenomena. If your Almighty God has “demonstrated repeatedly” that his patience isn’t infinite, when has he ever drawn the line and said, “No more!” Never. So much for his “Holy Name.”

    • DDay66

      G-d is not AAA, there 24 hours a day for you to call on to come change your flat tire while on the side of the road. G-d will provide you with a jack and a tire iron, and it is up to the people to change the flat tire. G-d doesn't prevent natural disasters to keep us safe, he creates the good of the human soul that performs extraordinary tasks, some might call miracles, to help themselves and their fellow man. This world is one big test, and G-d doesn't interfere just as your grade school teachers didn't give you answers during your final exam. G-d has placed an obstacle and test in front of us all called Islam and it is up to each and every one of us to pass the test.

      • Hilda

        Dday66, it’s not God that’s testing anyone; it’s Muslims who are testing Western Civilization, to see how far they can go. And it’s the weakness and evasion of people like you and Looking for Sanity who embolden Muslims. Instead of thinking and understanding that it’s nothing to do with God but rather ideology, civilization vs. barbarism, life vs. death, you want to blame some invisible, non-existent Satan and plead to a non-existent God to save you from Islam. Good luck with that.

        • DDay66

          Well Hilda, as someone who served three tours within the last 12 years and after 23 years in the military, or in other words someone who has literally fought those barbarians you just talk about, having G-d on your side isn't a bad thing. But what is bad is jumping down the throat of people on the same side who happen to enjoy the freedoms they want to strip from you like the right to believe or in your case the right to believe in nothing and attack verbally those of us who believe in something.

          So sorry I am not as trendy and hip as you and not on board with the "G-d doesn't exist" bandwagon.

      "If your Almighty God has "demonstrated repeatedly" that his patience isn't infinite, when has he ever drawn the line and said, "No more!" Never."

      Once he does, there won't be a second time. It's not a trivial matter. How many times have you died already? But you still take it seriously. Now imagine how serious it would be for every life to end on Earth.

      The God of the Bible wants people to come to home. Those that are obedient are rewarded in the afterlife, not where you can see.

      I think what upsets you is the fatalism that some times results from that. But that's not legitimate either. The Bible does support self-defense especially for the sake of others. Absolutely.

      Christians should defend their homes and nations for the simple reason that it extends the opportunities to evangelize (and also in pursuit of justice within our domain). Praying for the end means praying for the end of any opportunities for others to come to Christianity. Certainly Christianity teaches us to value life. Not at all costs, but generally the values in the West regarding life are largely derived from the Bible.

          "Many times. Rome, Greece, the Aztecs, the Incas, the Mayans, the Etruscans, the Amorites, the Hivites, and a host of others."

          But not globally unless you want to count Noah. But those who do count Noah aren't the ones asking the questions.

      "If you expect Muslim gangs to show up with box cutters, knives and clubs to rape your daughters, slit your throats, confiscate your property, and send your sons to a jute mill to work as slaves until they drop dead, what are you going to do? Throw a Torah or a Bible at them?"

      I wouldn't hesitate for any fraction of a second to kill a belligerent while defending an innocent in any situation that called for it. If they had a knife and there were no others, I might not go for a kill shot. If there was more than one, I'd kill them until I was 100% sure I could control the risks without doing that.

      It wouldn't be thrilling to do it. But I wouldn't feel "sinful" afterwards either.

    Looking4sanity. I’d remind you of 6 million Jews who were no doubt brought up to think that same God was going to honour his promises of protection to Abraham and Moses. Did he? No he didnt, and those poor people suffered the most outrageous act of barbarism when he stood idly by. You are talking pants, with the greatest of respect. Your argument isn’t with me on this. It is with history. And continue to adopt that same ” god will look after me” head in the sand attitude about this threat and you may well be risking the same outcome.

    • DDay66

      G-d isn't superman, and never did He make a promise that he would swoop down from the Heavens and rescue us whenever we are in trouble. Every life event is a test and each test has its reasoning, even something as horrendous as the Holocaust. 6 Million Jews died in the Shoah, and after the Shoah, the Jewish nation was reborn. It doesn't end the pain of the 6 million who were slaughtered; those people will remain in our memory for ever. But today over 6 million Jews live in Israel. We are also blessed with great stories of heroism that came from the same event with stories of the Partisans who refused to go quietly. It may seem like a small consolation, but in the end the evil of the Nazi regime was destroyed, a world became just slightly more united, at least to the point that most of us seem to agree with one ultimate concept, NEVER AGAIN!

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        The Almighty had done that for the children of Abraham many times.

        I don't know why the shoah was allowed, but I do know the face of evil would do it again!
        We have to resist evil, and islam is that evil right now.

          Closeness to God isn't dependent on a time, or 'the days of…'
          After pentecost we have the Holy Spirit for guidance. That may be one of the largest differences between Christians and Jews after the acceptance of Jesus.

          And it's up to us to decide who controls us and guides us individually.

    • Edward Cline

      Thank you, Chris, for seconding me. I swear, the minds of fundamnetalist Christians like DD66 are as hard to penetrate as those of any random Muslim.

        I don't see fundamentalist Christians

        - hijacking planes and flying them into buildings
        - stoning girls to death over Family Honor slights
        - kidnapping and beheading people – like Daniel Pearl
        - placing bombs on passenger planes like Pan Am 103
        - shooting people while in the trunk of a car – Beltway Sniper
        - Shouting Allah Akbar as they murder children

        Ed, I am a Jew and I am hardly fundamental. It's the fundamental atheists like yourself that divide us when you demonize people who have an understanding of spiritual beliefs.

        • Hilda

          Ar'nun, you divide yourself with your evasion and mysticism. Stop praying and wishing and start thinking and acting. Having spiritual needs does not excuse anyone for not thinking and using reason. If by bigot you mean someone who is intolerant of mystics and evaders, then I'm a bigot too.

    • Edward Cline

      DD66: Your "reasoning" is very revealing. Apparently, six million Jews had to perish so that Israel could be born. That is the typical ethic of an altruist. Pain, suffering, and death must precede before God allows something good to happen. That's "merciful"? That's as "merciful" as Allah, and you know how many millions have been butchered in his name before something "good" happened. What sadists these deities are.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        What relative morals do you use to decide what God is sadist?

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "Your "reasoning" is very revealing. Apparently, six million Jews had to perish so that Israel could be born. That is the typical ethic of an altruist. Pain, suffering, and death must precede before God allows something good to happen. That's "merciful"? "

        If you're omniscient and omnipotent, you can ensure that everything is just in the end. Justice is mercy.

        You don't have to accept it in order to understand it coherently. I"ll grant you that few people take the time to explain it coherently.

        I'll also say that connecting the holocaust with the birth of Israel is mere theory that can't be found in the Bible. The Bible only says that the Jews will regather again in Israel after being dispersed. It says a whole lot more than that, but nothing that can be used for a concrete claim about the historical events that we're talking about.

        Just remember that justice is eternal in the Bible. It's not a promise of justice according to the majority of people including those who don't believe. And neither does it mean that suffering must come before mercy. The most common theory about suffering is that it's some times necessary for people to suffer for them to learn crucial lessons. Suffering doesn't please God. He hates it. But suffering here in theory is the lesser evil relative to missing crucial lessons.

        Think of how important it is to know that fire burns. What if you never felt the pain of a burn? It would be harder to learn that lesson. Many lessons are far more complicated than that.

        Of course I don't have all of the answers, I'm just explaining to you some of the ideas presented in the Bible for those that carefully examine the texts looking for coherency and harmony of ideas.

      You don't understand what the Bible actually promises. Hint: It's not a promise of everlasting life on Earth.

    Western Civilization is not in decline, by allowing for women and gay rights, we are embracing the equality and freedom that makes Western Civilization that has ever existed. Low native birthrates aren't a sign of a civilization in decline, they are signs of a civilization in advancement. Our culture is now so great that we don't force our women to marry early and do nothing except to bare children, but allow them into society and the workplace. Compare that with the Islamic Civilization, which is so backwards that the only way they can possibly take over is if they marry their women as children and force them to have a dozen children. This backfires more often then we can imagine. It looks like the Muslims are winning due to their higher birthrates, but in reality, those high birthrates are the act of a Civilization that knows it is already dead, and is driven to desperate, pathetic gambles to try and win. They have more children, but that is all they have, and the 'culture' that they bring of bigotry and persecution can never overpower the greatness of Western Civilization.

    • Infovoyeur

      Alas, a well-meant but dangerous view. Cultural maturity in humane values, which as you say the West greatly has (tho not perfect), is no match for sheer FORCE. Item: isn't the only reason Europe is not now Islamic, is that in 1683, at the gates of Vienna, European military forces were STRONGER than the invasion forces?… Item: isn't the only reason that Hitler did not in 1946 or 7, bomb New York City with drone-delivered nuclear weapons, is that WE GOT TO THAT POWER FIRST?….. Item: the drive toward a Global Caliphate is diamond-hard in resolution and dynamite-powerful in execution… If I am mistaken in this stand, which I hope is "civil" in tone, please suggest this to me, also civilly–I am honest about asking this. (BTW yes "the West is Best," as Ibn Warrack titled his book–not perfect, not that other cultures aren't good, but it's better than totalitarian dictatorial tribal savage barbaric etc. systems…)

      Well son you had better be prepared to fight for your western civilization because it is going to come to that no matter how much you wish for peace at any price and putting a COEXIST sticker on your prius isn't going to cut it, only force of arms will preserve our way of life.

    • Nabquduriuzhur

      No nation has survived endorsing homosexuality. Homosexuality is not a right. It does not belong in the same category as rights for women.

      Women's rights were about equality.

      No one is harmed when women have rights. Quite the contrary. Unlike today's feminist who tears down her house with her own hands, women historically have been a civilizing influence in nations.

      Homosexuals victimize others. They hurt themselves. They hurt others. The violent crime rate among them makes that clear.

      When nations lost their morals, they disappeared from the world stage. From failure within or invasion or both.

      The Bible calls it the time of trouble for a reason.

      I think putting it off and doing our part to explain why our version of the One True God is the correct one, that's a smart thing to do. It's also the great commission. Go and tell what God has done for you.

      islam, when they tell their story it's at the point of the sword. I don't want to see the bad guys win this.

      • Looking4Sanity

        I am going to disagree with that sentiment in the gentlest terms possible. I think that "putting it off" and "doing our part" are two completely separate issues. Aside from the fact that I doubt whether we can, in any way, put it off…the last words of the Bible are these:

        Revelation 22:

        20: He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. *Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
        21: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

    The West would be just like the Mohammedan world, or at least on the way to being like it if the Nazis had won.
    Where Hitler failed to deliver on his '1000 year reich' the Mohammedans have achieved it plus another 300 some years.

  • KathleenP

    I realized this and stopped trying to "understand" or "respect" Islam when I learned that their prophet had married and had sex with a 9-year-old child (actually, in some accounts she is described as being 8 years old, which is probably more likely as according to the lunar calendar children are considered 1 year old a month after birth). That pretty much did it for me.

    • digdigby

      Actually the 'Prophet' married Aisha when she was six years old but did not penetrate her till she was nine. As the venerable Khomeini taught, a man can even have sexual pleasure with an infant girl but cannot penetrate her. This is why the Arabs are known for the practice of 'thighing'. What is that? You don't want to know. I love when traditional Christians talk about making 'moral common cause' with Muslims because they are so 'modest'.

  • Smote

    How can anyone 'respect' a religion that preaches that if a woman is raped it is her fault? The moon-god worshippers treat their camels better than they treat their women.

    • grayjohn

      They have better sex with the camels too.
      No one who is civilized can accept it. It's not really a religion anyway.

  • Nabuquduriuzhur

    Unfortunately, it's common for people who do the right to be marginalized. Or they are simply ignored.

    Although this primer on what Socialism is has been the most popular bit on my site for some time:

    I tried to send it to Front Page, but it was ignored. (Which doesn't make much sense, given its contents and the number of articles I've had published.)

    Micelion,
    The prophet of Islam said "I have been victorious through terror"! He was bragging and he won and Muslims all over the world are still suffering…
