Editors’ note: As we witness U.S. authorities and the establishment media trying to de-Islamize the Jihad in Boulder and to obscure the fact that the Jihadist perpetrator, Ahmad Al Issa, is a Muslim migrant ISIS sympathizer, some vital questions confront us: why does the Left consistently engage in Jihad Denial? Why is it so invested in denying the Islamic roots of Islamic Jihad?
This is, without doubt, one of the most pertinent questions of our time, especially now with the Boulder Jihad — and its tragic victims — hovering right before our very eyes. Frontpage Mag editors have therefore deemed it vital to run, below, an excerpt from Jamie Glazov’s book, Jihadist Psychopath: How He is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us.
The excerpt, which is Chapter 4 of the book (‘Jihad Denial’), explains why the Left must push Jihad into invisibility — and why it is so callous towards the victims of Jihad and Sharia.
This documentation equips us with the understanding of why Jihadists like Ahmad Al Issa are able to sow the destruction that they do today — and so easily. It also sets the foundation for our insight into why exactly the Left practices Jihad Denial — and what all the specious ingredients of that denial entail. These facts will all be unveiled in several published segments of Jihadist Psychopath in our forthcoming issues of Frontpage Mag.

[To read the chapter on what the Left actually is — and why it aids and abets Jihad — read Utopian Virus: HERE. The Virus in Power, meanwhile, explores how the Left took power in America — and why it had such an easy time doing so. Read it: HERE. The introduction crystallizes the general nature of Jihad Denial: HERE — while Chapter 1 details the Obama administration’s horrific record of trying to hide and camouflage the true sources of Islamic terror: HERE.]
The Left’s war on its own host democratic society is greatly enabled by its consistent and focused empowerment of that society’s enemies. As explained earlier, this is precisely why the Left sided with communism during the Cold War and why, today, it works collaboratively with Islamic supremacism within the Unholy Alliance in the terror war.1 Islamic supremacism has simply replaced communism as the Left’s ally against America and the West over the course of the past quarter-century.
The Left well understands that in order to facilitate Islamic supremacism’s assault on our society, it must suppress the ugly, discomfiting truth about this fascistic ideology and movement. Doing so is completely natural for the Left, which has routinely turned a blind eye to evil and to undesirable elements within adversary cultures, ideologies and religions for decades. When Western citizens recognize an ugly truth about an enemy society, it poses a tremendous danger to the Left because (1) the conclusion can be reached that Western society is better and, therefore, worth protecting and defending; (2) the nature of the actual threat the enemy poses and a way to counter that threat can be discerned; and (3) the importance of preventing adherents of the enemy ideology from coming to live on the host society’s terrain becomes plainly evident.
All of the above realizations are anathema to progressives, whose entire mission falls into ruins if citizens of their host society understand the evil of an adversarial system. The Left’s goal of destroying its own society, and of constructing upon its ruins a utopia of perfect integration, equality and sameness, simply crumbles if people take concrete steps to defend their own society from the enemy — which includes recognizing the destructiveness of immigration and refugee policies designed to import hostile populations.
Thus, we begin to understand why the Left is so unsympathetic to the victims of Jihad and Sharia — and why it consistently pushes them into invisibility. Their reality and suffering is bad news for the Left. When people witness the horrific ordeal of human beings tortured and murdered by the adherents of Islamic supremacism, they begin to see Islam for what it is. The Left is determined to stop this from happening, since its agenda cannot succeed if people understand the truth about the threat that they face. This is exactly why the Left engaged in Gulag Denial throughout the Cold War; denying the monstrous evils of communism was crucial for the Left’s war on its own host society, and for its effort to help communists conquer that society.2
And so we have Jihad Denial — the Left’s vehement effort to silence those who dare to tell the truth about Islamic supremacism. The Left has to keep Jihad Denial alive and healthy, so that its plan of building its Tower of Babel on the ashes of its host society can move forward.3 Most important for the Left is the tactic of disconnecting Islam from Islamic terrorism. As has been shown in Chapter 1, and as will be documented further in the ensuing chapters, the Left has succeeded brilliantly in this effort. Indeed, while controlling the culture and framing the national discourse on this issue, the Left has arrogated the moral high-ground to itself when engaging in Jihad Denial, posturing as though it is working toward a society of social justice and fairness, while it paints all Muslims as victims of Western transgressions — even during the height of an age that is replete with Islamic terrorism.
Any person, meanwhile, who dares to whisper any sobering truth about Islam is now immediately shamed and dehumanized. Labelled a racist, bigot and “Islamophobe” who supposedly hates all Muslim people and thinks that all Muslims are terrorists, this individual is caricatured as a mouthpiece of “hate speech” and an inciter of violence against Muslims. He is regarded as someone who needs to be silenced and, ideally, criminalized.4
One transparent example of this atrocious distortion that comes with Jihad Denial is the case of leading counter-jihadist Pamela Geller and the slanders leveled against her. Geller is perpetually cast by the Unholy Alliance as an “Islamophobe” and a “Muslim hater,”5 when in fact she is a noble humanitarian who is motivated not just by the desire to defend Western freedom, but also by an impulse to protect Muslim people themselves — especially Muslim women and young girls who suffer under the vicious barbarities of Islamic gender apartheid. Geller has, for instance, done more on behalf of Muslim women than have any of her slanderers. Emblematic of her efforts was her fight on behalf of Aqsa Parvez, a 16-year-old Muslim girl who was murdered by her Muslim father and brother in an honor killing in Toronto, in 2007. Geller brought attention to Aqsa’s case and had a memorial grove successfully built in the girl’s memory in Israel — after Aqsa’s family and other Unholy Alliance forces had made it impossible for Geller to do so in Ontario.6
Geller’s valiant efforts to bring attention to Aqsa’s fate were part of her overall campaign to shine a light on the shameful practice of honor killings and on the suffering of all Muslim women under Islam in general. Such efforts are symbolized by the page on Geller’s website titled “Honor Killings Grow in the West: Islam’s Gruesome Gallery,” which documents horrific cases in which Muslim women were subjected to honor killings and acid attacks.7 It is worth noting that the members of the Unholy Alliance who smear Geller are the ones who are actually engaged in the hatred of Muslim people, since their assault on this counter-jihadist inevitably exonerates the Islamic ideology that inspires and sanctions the oppression of Muslims themselves — and leaves millions of them helplessly ensnared by the shackles of Sharia. When the Unholy Alliance demonizes Geller, it actually exacerbates the suffering of Muslim people and depicts them as inferior, since it lowers expectations of how Muslims should treat each other and non-Muslims. This way of thinking holds Western societies to a higher standard of moral accountability, which confers an implied civilizational superiority on these societies and civilizational inferiority on Muslim societies. This is a dark form of leftist bigotry that is, with a few exceptions, never discussed in our media and culture.8
The Left used all of these same dirty tactics during the Cold War as well, labelling any conservative who tried to oppose communist aggression and infiltration as a “fascist,” “McCarthyite” and “Red-Baiter” (among other terms) — while making victims and martyrs out of many traitors who were in league with the communist enemy (i.e. the Rosenbergs, Alger Hiss etc.).9
Jihad Denial, therefore, is a powerful mechanism through which the Left advances its malicious goals. It assists the Left, for instance, in bringing Islamic supremacist populations to Western shores through Hijrah — the process of Jihad-by-immigration.10 By importing masses of people who hate America and seek to destroy its way of life, the Left succeeds in severely damaging the United States and making it more vulnerable to attack. This explains why President Obama worked so hard to flood the U.S. with Muslim refugees11 and why the Left is now so ferociously fighting Trump’s efforts to protect America from refugees who hail from terror-infested nations.12
By denying the true character and roots of Jihad and Sharia through Jihad Denial, the Left prevents an evil enemy from being exposed and, in turn, enables that enemy. And the Left has been extremely successful in this feat, having imposed Jihad Denial on Western culture to such an extent that we are now seeing the virtual surrender of our civilization in the face of Islamic supremacism. Indeed, the West is now perpetually bending over backwards in its effort to silence any truth-telling about Islam and, of course, to disconnect Islam from every Islamic terror attack. Anyone who tries to point out unpleasant truths about Islam is either demonized or silenced. Many people are simply too scared to say what they see and think about Islam, because they are terrified of being called racists and suffering the consequences of being tarred with that word — consequences that may include stigmatization, marginalization, getting fired from one’s job, being held back in one’s career, being criminally charged, and much more.13
All in all, what Jihad Denial has achieved is to make the real perpetrators the victims, and the victims the perpetrators. Patriotism is now considered hatred — while self-defense is regarded as an incitement to violence against innocents. As a result, the effort to defend Western civilization from Islamic supremacism has been largely paralyzed.
Our next step in evaluating this disaster is to explore how Jihad Denial works as a machine. It is vital to lay bare the main arguments utilized by Jihad Denial, since they are extremely calculating, deceptive, and destructive. In the next chapter, we outline and discredit the specious facades of Jihad Denial.
