Why The Crusades Were Lost: Saint Louis’ Racism Against The Mongols!

July 9, 2017

Islam came to near annihilation in the Thirteenth Century as Franks and Mongols unified and took the Islamist capitals, Baghdad and Damascus. A little known episode. At the time, the overall Mongol Khan was a woman (another little known episode!) But she didn’t cause the problem. Instead Saint Louis’ jealous racism, and unbounded hatred of “infidels” made the difference.

Richard the Lionheart lived in France, where he was supposedly vassal to the king of France, Philip II Augustus his companion in arms (who left the so-called “Holy land” after a while, leaving his soul mate Richard, in charge). Richard may not have lost major battles. But, a century later, Saint Louis, Louis IX of France, did, and ruined France in the process.

It became clear nothing good was achieved by all this crusading. On top of that, the climate started to wobble. Instead, the French switched to the trading model with Islam (rendered possible by treaties consecutive to the Crusades). Immense fortunes were made (Jacques Coeur, born a commoner, became the richest man in France by trading with the Levant in the fifteenth century, and soon, master of the mint, and a most important European diplomat).

Arab chroniclers used the correct term, “Franki” (Franks) to qualify the Europeans trying to (re)conquer the Middle East from the religion of Islam, which had smothered it.

By the time the Crusades were launched, direct Muslim aggression against Europe has been continuous since 715 CE, a full four centuries (the word “Europe” was used first by the Franks in the context of the Muslim invasions). This continual Muslim attack was viewed, correctly, by all concerned, as the continuation of the war of Islam against Rome. (Naturally so, as the Franks so themselves as “Rome”. By 800 CE, the Franks had officially “renovated”, as they put it, the Roman empire…)

Painted in 1337 CE. Notice that the Franks are covered in armor, and the Muslims are not. Obvious technological superiority. The Romans already bought light steel helmets in Gaul! Muslim tech superiority is a lie. In plain view.

There is plenty of evidence that the Franks were more advanced than the Muslims in crucial military technology, as early as 715 CE. How could they not be? The Muslims were just coming out of savage Arabia, all the technology they had, was stolen, or, let’s say, adopted from others.

Four terracotta hand grenades, with “Greek Fire” inside, used by the defenders of Constantinople against the Turks. Greek Fire had many variants, some secret to this day. The Chinese developed dry versions, with salpeter, which turned into black powder later.

The Franks, who had been the crack troops of the Roman empire, as early as 311 CE, had better steel, better armor, better steel weapons, and giant war horses capable of wearing armor themselves. That’s why the Franks were able to defeat the Muslims, overall, in the first phase of the war with Islam, which was in Europe (711 CE, attack on Spain, until the counterattack on Jerusalem, 1099 CE).

This European technological superiority was obvious during the Spanish reconquista. An armored Spanish horse was like an intelligent, indomitable battle tank, which would charge again and again, rarely seriously wounded. By contrast, Muslim cavaliers wore little armor, their relatively small Arab horses were excellent but all too little (I used to ride my own very combative Arab stallion in Africa, which nobody else would, or could, ride… Its name, appropriately chosen, was Napoleon…).

Horse archers were not effective against heavily armored cavalry. They could bother it, but not defeat it. This is why the Mongols decided wisely not to attack the Franks again, after invading, suffering huge losses, Hungary, and Croatia. The Mongols debated what had happened to their ancestors the Huns, eight centuries earlier, in France (annihilation spared only political decision). The Mongols used rocket artillery.

Noah Smith wroteWhy Did Europe Lose the Crusades?“. Said he: “A little while ago, I started to wonder about a historical question: Why did Europe lose the Crusades? The conventional wisdom, at least as I’ve always understood it, is that Europe was simply weaker and less advanced than the Islamic Middle Eastern powers defending the Holy Land. Movies about the Crusades tend to feature the Islamic armies deploying fearsome weapons – titanic trebuchets, or even gunpowder. This is consistent with the broad historical narrative of a civilizational “reversal of fortunes” – the notion that Islamic civilization was much more highly advanced than Europe in the Middle Ages. Also, there’s the obvious fact that the Middle East is pretty far from France, Germany, and England, leading to the obvious suspicion that the Middle East was just too far away for medieval power projection.

Anyway, I decided to answer this question by…reading stuff about the Crusades. I read all the Wikipedia pages for the various crusades, and then read a book – Thomas Asbridge’s “The Crusades: The Authoritative History of the War for the Holy Land“. Given that even these basic histories contain tons of uncertainty, we’ll never really know why the Crusades turned out the way they did. But after reading up a bit, here are my takes on the main candidate explanations for why Europe ultimately lost.”

He pursue by fingering “lack of motivation” as the main cause of the loss of the Crusades. That is true, in part: Europe opened to the ocean. However, the Crusades won in important ways (opening up trade). But the Europeans also really lost, when it would have been easy to win.

Noah Smith’s analysis focuses only on the English (so to speak) aspect of the Crusades. He does not quite say that a rogue frankish army seized Constantinople in 1204 CE. And then he omits completely what happened in the Thirteenth Century (because Richard Lionhearted was then dead, and history is all about the Anglois?).

For politically correct reasons, some of them ten centuries old, some more voguish, allegations have been made of the superiority of Islam (or China, for that matter). These (often self-serving from racist self-declared anti-racists) assertions are not grounded in fact.

By 1000 CE, the Franks had the highest GDP per capita in the world, and its history. European technology was, overall, the most advanced. Europeans were stunned by how little the Chinese used machines and animals.  

The Arabic numbers were Greek numbers perfected in India, where the full zero was invented, and were reintroduced through central Asia. Out of the 160 major work of Antiquity we have, 150 survived in European monasteries, the universities of the time (and the ten remaining were saved by the Persians, initially).

The Middle East, long the cradle of most invention, has been clearly a shadow of its former self, ever since Islam established its dictator, intolerance and war friendly terrorizing culture of god obsession.

Crusades in the Middle east until 1204; The image Noah Smith uses, which misinforms the reality of what happened…

Europe didn’t “lose the Crusades”. Saint Louis did. Europe didn’t just decide the Middle East was hopeless, in all sorts of ways. Europe had got reopening of the Silk Roads from Saladin. Meanwhile in 1244, the Khwarezmians, recently pushed out by the advance of the Mongols, took Jerusalem on their way to ally with the Egyptian Mamluks. Europe shrugged (by then “Roman” emperors such as Frederick I Barbarossa had used a Muslim company of bodyguards… So there was strictly no anti-Muslim hatred and racism… contrarily to what happened with the Mongols, see below…) 

It is also true that Saint Louis, a weird mix of a dangerous religious fanatic of the worst type, and a modern, enlightened king, lost its entire army (to a woman, the only female leader Islam ever had!) in Egypt. Saint Louis was taken captive at the Battle of Fariskur where his army was annihilated. He nearly died, was saved from dysentery by an Arab physician (impressed Arabs offered for him to rule them). A huge ransom had to be paid, comparable to the French budget. Then Saint Louis died in front of Tunis, in another ridiculous crusade (1270 CE).  Louis fell ill with dysentery, and was cured by an Arab physician

The Seventh and Eight Crusades were disastrous military defeats

Saint Louis, a racist, was the direct cause of the survival of Islam. The Mongols, allied to local Franks had destroyed Baghdad (siege of the Abbasid Caliphate) and Damascus (siege of the Umayyad). The Mongols asked respectfully to make an official alliance with Christianity, and eradicate Islam.

Instead the Pope called Nestorian Christian Mongols heathens, and him and Saint Louis promised excommunication to all and any Frank joining the Mongols in war. Thus the Mongols attacked Egypt without Frankish help, and were defeated by the Mamluks Turks.

Dejected, the Mongols decided that they were Muslims (Islam has no pope, and the Caliphate had been destroyed by the Franco-Mongol alliance ) Under Timor Lame, they would carve a giant Mongol-Muslim empire all the way into India.

This is just a fraction of the common operations of the Franks and Mongols, when they were allied against the Muslims, destroying Baghdad, seizing Damascus. Saint Louis and his pet the Pope saved Islam by calling a halt to the cooperation. Mongols and Franks actually took Damascus together, and the commanders entered the conquered city, side by side…

The Spanish were more serious. They, Isabella, Ferdinand and their advisers, planned to pursue the reconquista by extirpating Islam from North Africa and the Middle East.

The extremely well-trained, battle hardened army was prepared, but then the Americas had just been discovered, and war with France for the control of the world in general and Italy in particular, became everything. Spain engaged in a war with France it took nearly two centuries to lose. The conquest of the Americas changed the world, though. The reconquest of the Christian empire from the Muslims was given up…

It could have been done: the Spanish occupied many cities of North Africa, including Algiers and Oran. Power was divided between Ottoman pirates (“Barbarossas”) and the kingdom of Tlemcen. In any case, in 1525 CE, while Cortez was conquering Central America, defeating among others, the Aztecs, pirates retook Algiers in the name of the Turk Selim 1. At the same time, Selim defeated the Egyptian Mamluks, taking control of the Levant, Mecca, and Egypt.

Islam, a pretty deleterious religion in its literal, Salafist form, survived. North Africa and the Middle East, previously long the world’s wealthiest place, is now the poorest and most war-ridden…

And the war goes on, the ideology of Salafist, literal Islam, being fundamentally antagonistic to civilization.

For the USA, the Iraq war has been an enormous victory: it boosted the price of oil for a decade, enabling the massive deployment of US fracking. Now the USA is again the world’s number one fossil fuel producer. Also French and US military forces are fighting from Mali to Afghanistan, maintaining economic and military control over an area still crucial for energy production (although it will soon become economically irrelevant, from renewable energy).  

All the regimes from Mali to Afghanistan, are, officially, friendly to civilization. So why does the war goes on? Because the ideology is islam is centered on Jihad, no holds barred. Thus Islam gives a ready ideology to those who want to make no holds barred. This is why the Turks converted to islam. Within a generation, they had invaded a huge swathe of Central Asia, and overran very old civilization: Georgia, Armenia, and the Oriental Romans (“Constantinople”).

Then Christian pilgrims going to Jerusalem were massacred (up to 10,000 at one time) by various Muslim potentates. Constantinople, having lost half of its territory, to the recently converted, ferociously invading Turks, asked the “Occidental” Roman empire to come to the rescue.   

In 1095 Pope Urban II called for the First Crusade in a sermon at the Council of Clermont. He encouraged military intervention for the so-called Byzantine Empire and its Emperor, Alexios I, who needed desperately to stop the westward invasion of the migrating Turks colonising Anatolia.

Morality of all this? What people think they know about history has little to do with what really happened. The forces presently in conflict have been in conflict ever since Islam exists, as Muhammad wanted it. The Quraish, in Mecca, the dominant tribe Muhammad belonged to, didn’t trust Muhammad: he was an analphabet and an epileptic. To boot, Muhammad succeeded in life by marrying a wealthy business woman, and then switching from caravan trading, to caravan raiding.

Just before he died, Muhammad led the first attack against the Romans (who had not attacked him, and refused combat). War is the great arbiter of human destiny. The enormous Roman field army, horrendously led erroneously, was annihilated on its third day of battle at Yarmouk against the Arab Muslim army. Emperor Heraclius, a great general had not been present, he was in Alexandria.

War is a great arbiter, but it is also extremely fickle. Crucial battles are won, and lost, which should never have been won, or lost. Sometimes by sheer happenstance, sometimes from hubris, sometimes by having top generals with top armies not considering the worst imaginable case (as happened to the Romans when fighting the Arabs at Yarmouk, or with Yamamoto at Midway, or the French mid May 1940…).

To learn from history, it has to be learned in full. Civilization missed a chance to eliminate the Islamist war ideology when it aborted the natural alliance with the Mongols. But it’s not very surprising: the overall leader of Europe, then, was Saint Louis. Saint Louis invented the modern justice system, and put his mother, Blanche de castille, in charge of France for many years. So he could be viewed as non-sexist and all for justice. He is represented to this day, rendering justice below an oak. However, Saint Louis was also a savage. He really believed that unbelievers should be killed painfully. Interestingly, Saint Louis came to believe that the Muslims were believers: his fanatical rage was oriented towards Jews and those who, in Christendom, did not believe. So it’s entirely natural that, by considering the Mongols heathens, and forbidding a further alliance with them, he would, in the end, save Islam!

It’s not just that Saint Louis burned 12,000 Jewish manuscripts in Paris, in 1243 CE (5 years before he led the disastrous Seventh Crusade). Saint Louis wrote abominable descriptions of the atrocious ways in which he would kill infidels (I read it in the original texts long ago; however, I was unable to find a source today…)

We have Jihadists around, ready to kill the innocent nowadays, because Saint Louis was actually one of them!

Islam – Religion of Peace or Totalitarian Ideology?

July 1, 2017

PRESENT DAY ISLAM IS A LIE, SAID AISHA:
I lived my childhood in Muslim countries, from the age of two weeks. Islam was then never a problem, it was a very tolerant and tolerable part of the landscape. I never had a problem with the call to prayer, anymore than I had with church bells. Both of them could be heard, as the places I grew up in enjoyed diverse version of “Sufi” Islam. “Sufism” is actually immensely varied. In West Africa it meant not only women didn’t wear a veil, but were going bare chested.

Now things have completely degenerated: Saudi and emirates’ wealth, discreetly propped by divisive Western plutocracy, have imposed a variant of Islam which was basically unknown when not outright outlawed eight centuries ago in the places of higher civilization (Sultanate of egypt, Abbasid Caliphate, Persia).

This unamusing version comes straight out of the Qur’an written by Uthman, Third Caliph, which Aisha, the child-bride wife of the Prophet, condemned and went to war about because, she said, it was a pack of lies and fake representations of what Muhammad thought. Interestingly, Aisha fought Ali at the Battle of the Camel, so she is hated by the Shia, too. Thus Aisha condemned both Sunni and Shia Islams.

Picard, named after the Star Trek character, for his humanitarian logic, is a frequent commenter on this site and the author of the site “Defense Issues” has produced his own critical essay on Salafist Islam. (We are all severely criticizing, following Aisha’s notoriously free spirit!). This breath of fresh air is reproduced below.

Why This Site Shouldn’t Interest Most Americans

June 26, 2017

Very few Americans don’t believe in a God, or Life Force, Spirits and other Superstition (according to many polls, one of them reproduced below). I of course believe that all those who believe in superstition or divination are victims of a lack of introspection, resulting in a regrettable submission of (their) perception to domination. This the foundation of their political subjugation. It’s also the royal road to subjugation. Thus countries friendly to superstition and the religions attached to it, are typically submissive to mighty plutocracies.

And thus, as we see inequality rising around the world, it can be tracked to the imposition of the American “neoliberal” model, a modern ideology to impose the grossest traditional plutocracy!  Only 2% of North Americans do not believe in the supernatural: a god, life-force, spirits. This means that most North Americans are superstitious. In comparison, 11% of South-East Asians do not believe, in a god, life force, or spirit. One could say South-east Asia is five times less superstitious…. In France, a whopping one-third of the population don’t believe in a god, life force, or spirit. Thus the French are less ready to believe that plutocrats are benevolent, philanthropic spirits, under a merciful god… (The Market?)

The cult of all things religious has been reinforced top down in the USA since 1954, date of enthronement of “In God We Trust” (which displaced the Republican “E Pluribus Unum”).

For example, Americans are taught to venerate Pastor Martin Luther King. To esteem MLK is honorable, but his cult, at the exclusion of the cult of others, and not learning what exactly happened, arguably even more meritorious, is dubious. After all, President Eisenhower, an ex-general, and Earl Warren, head of the US Supreme Court, did the the heavy lift and courageous combat against segregation in the 1950s.  

***

Forget God and its “Pastors”: Presidents, Generals and Judges are who Order Progress:

Here is Earl Warren:

Segregation of white and colored children in public schools has a detrimental effect upon the colored children. The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law, for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the Negro group…Any language in contrary to this finding is rejected. We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.
—Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court

Much clearer than “I have a dream!”. To desegregate schools, Eisenhower sent the army. Conclusion: if you want to fight injustice, clear legal, republican thinking and the army, in other words, force, is what is needed.

This Is Why The French Revolution, Core to the United Nations’ Charter, Happened in France, and Not America!

MLK was made into a living god, a sort of Muslim-like “Messenger”. In truth he was part, and rather at the end, of a much more powerful wave he surfed on. Heroes may be useful, but the cult of the providential man prepares that of the “philanthropist” as plutocrats call themselves. (Just as in the Middle Ages plutocrats modestly called themselves, the “best”.)

Thus, when I criticize Islam, many Americans feel I defend the Bible (which is actually the source of Islam, something i know, but they don’t…)

The entire left of the world, not just the USA, suffers from searching for heroes, rather than clear thinking on the Republic. But this is precisely what the plutocratically owned media and the masters of public opinion, wanted. It’s the result of meta teaching, inculcating impotent forms of thought.

I should speak only to the French agnostics (but they don’t generally read English well enough to understand me, as a French professional philosopher once told me, thus he asked me to translate my thoughts in… French; a full-time job I couldn’t possibly do. Actually, I have no time to write a book. As Socrates implicitly pointed out, thinking per se is a full-time job… Socrates, going overboard, famously called writing “the semblance of truth”; that would make all of math, physics and now biology the “semblance of truth”… Although I do agree for Plato…)

***

Cult Of God, One & Only, Came From the Hydraulic Dictatorship Zone:

Verily, much of the roots civilization we use today appeared in what I call the Middle Earth (earliest writing is from there; although it was completely independently evolved in Mesoamerica). Egyptian civilization appeared 6,000 years ago, and the first city known in Anatolia, a few millennia before that.

However, the Middle East, central to the Middle Earth, suffered desiccation of the land, and then the minds, as it veered into . Thus it is natural that this physically sick region came up with a sick metaphysics. It is also of some import: it’s no coincidence that the Roman empire collapsed when Christianism was imposed to it, and countries such as Syria collapsed when Islamism was imposed to it (in the Seventh Century already!)

Some have noticed an analogy between “Ra” as in the theology of Egypt, AbRAhamism, and BRAhamism. This is not as ludicrous as it sounds. First, Abrahamism clearly arose in Egypt (as the Bible recognizes sneakily). Secondly Brahamanism, which gave rise to Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism itself came from the old Vedic religion, which, in turn, comes from the Middle East. Wikipedia says:

According to Anthony: “Many of the qualities of Indo-Iranian god of might/victory, Verethraghna, were transferred to the adopted god Indra, who became the central deity of the developing Old Indic culture. Indra was the subject of 250 hymns, a quarter of the Rig Veda. He was associated more than any other deity with Soma, a stimulant drug (perhaps derived from Ephedra) probably borrowed from the BMAC religion. His rise to prominence was a peculiar trait of the Old Indic speakers.[27]

The oldest inscriptions in Old Indic, the language of the Rig Veda, are found not in northwestern India and Pakistan, but in northern Syria, the location of the Mitanni kingdom.[40] The Mitanni kings took Old Indic throne names, and Old Indic technical terms were used for horse-riding and chariot-driving.[40] The Old Indic term r’ta, meaning “cosmic order and truth”, the central concept of the Rig Veda, was also employed in the Mitanni kingdom.[40] Old Indic gods, including Indra, were also known in the Mitanni kingdom.[41][42][43]

The preceding illustrates well the concept of the Middle Earth. It also means that 72% of the world’s population derives its metaphysics from Egypt, or thereabout). More or less (the Egyptian empire often encroached deep on the so-called Fertile Crescent, which is anchored in the West by Israel, Lebanon, Syria…

Ultimately, Egypt, soon after a remarkable attempt at monotheism (which promptly spawned Abrahamism), decayed. Why? Some will point at the invasion of the “Peoples of the Sea”, which Egypt, alone among the Great Powers, was able to defeat (at considerable cost).

***

Egypt’s Government Model Was So Obsolete, Its Civilization Became Senile:

However, shortly after, Egypt exhibited a lack of animal spirits and was durably overrun by Libyans, and then Assyrians, Persians…  Tellingly, it’s the very fierce Greeks and their uncouth students, the Macedonians, who freed Egypt.

What happened to Egypt? Long drawn out dictatorship, when the rise of new technology called for start-ups, basically Greece was full of startups. Startup city states…

True, Egypt got invaded by vast empires, modernized versions of itself. When the Persians came around and colonized Egypt, so they did because Achaemenid Persia was a multinational empire, ultramodern in many ways.

However, ultimately the tiny Athenian startup defeated Persia at Marathon, and then insolently landed an army to free Egypt (its mental benefactor) from Persia!

***

Puritanism Does Not The Best Minds Make, Deep Thinking Is Dirty:

Last week I went out with a number of friends of the Anglo-Saxon persuasion, aggravated by reactive vegetarian ethics. I was retrospectively surprised by the lack of animal spirits. How can one have artful, constructive mental intercourse without the blossoming of passion? It certainly can’t happen when all conversations are guarded. After all, that’s why the divinity was imposed: the divinity imposed a subdued mentality, a submissive morality, and, definitively, a lack of inquiry.  

Thus it’s no accident that the French, long at the forefront of the battle of ideas against the obscurity of stupor, are the ones most aware that all past superstition is just that, superstition without foundation, as reckoned by its own definition.

And these are not words without foundation: in the Twelfth century, Pierre Abelard reinvented Classical logic (and went further). In the Fourteenth century, another Parisian, Jean buridan (Johannes Buridanus), went even further with the Cretan Paradox (rendered famous by Kurt Godel). Buridan also invented the hard part of Newton’s laws (three century before Newton). Actually Buridan anticipated not just Newton, but also Riemann’s force theory (used by Einstein and Al. in the Theory of Gravitation aka “General Relativity”!)

Both Abelard and Buridan were involved in colossal struggles, fights to death, with the catholic Church. Buridan had refused to enter the faculty of theology, so that he would not have to take an oath to the god of Abraham. Abelard fought Saint Bernard to death. Saint Bernard was then the most important, and most fanatical Catholic. At the time, it looked as if Saint Bernard sort of won. But history showed he lost. Buridan’s work were outlawed by the church, under the penalty of death, except in far eastern Europe, where they were taught to the young Copernicus.  

During the period 1100 CE to 1700 CE, Christianism caused an unending succession of terror, major wars, crusades, holocausts and massacres throughout Europe, and from there, the world. How come Europe didn’t collapsed as Rome did? First Europe was governed mostly by a plutocracy which was severely related and intermarried. They killed the poor a lot, themselves, much less. And actually that plutocracy was firmly in command, in secular command.

For example a fanatical Catholic such as Saint Louis put his mother, Blanche de Castille, ex-ruling queen, in charge several times as he made war through the Middle East (and letting himself be made a prisoner by the one and only female ruler that Islam ever had, in Egypt!). So he let a woman in charge, but he also had organized a modern justice system, now copied everywhere, including the USA.

Rome collapsed, because emperor Theodosius, around 390 CE unleashed the office of “Inquisitor” he had just created, against the “Heretics” (“those who made a choice”). Inquisitor, heretics: two terms, dripping with blood and terror, bathing in fire, imposed by Roman Catholic emperor Theodosius. By 400 CE, the empire was collapsing so much that the bishops put the Franks in charge of three provinces.

The Franks were Pagans

Hopefully, they still are!

And will stay that way! Maybe Americans could join their forefathers the Franks, and realize that, if they want paradise, they can get it only on Earth. Let me rephrase this a bit: If one wants paradise, one has to work hard, because one can get it only on Earth! It means in particular that on eschews the seductions of the rule of hell (plutocracy), and better start with free universal healthcare, as those who believe it’s their task to create and make a really Good God!

Abuse of Muslim Women Ignored By Western Leadership, and Why

June 22, 2017

The tolerance of inhuman, hard core Islam is symptomatic of the venality of elites and their “elected” servants, who we have to endure, all around the world. That’s not very surprising: the very principle of letting a few thousand people (“elected” or not) decide the fate of the biosphere, and, in particular more than seven billion people, is intrinsically demented and immoral.

Pseudo progressives claim “all religions have to be respected”, but then why not religions ordering human sacrifices? Answer: they do, because hard-core Islam does order human sacrifices of the many types of people the Qur’an orders to kill.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali (@ayaan) and Asra Q. Nomani (@asranomani), are authors (and in the case of Ayaan, an ex-Member of the Dutch Parliament) who were born into Islam, and got mutilated and abused as a result. The New York Times allowed them to write an “Op-Ed” (a vicious notion, as if the usual editorials of the New York Times had no opinion!))  Ms. Nomani is a co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, once a Dutch MP, was hunted out of Europe by murderous Islamists and various lethal fatwas. Authorities there proved unable and unwilling to protect hurt from rabid Islamists. Whereas there are very few Muslim from most fanatical Islamist region in the USA (yet!), where she took refuge, there are orders of magnitude more in Europe.

The New York Times blocked my comment on this excellent editorial (showing its duplicity: it claims that my comments are blocked by editors at the New York Times, but Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a friend and does not block me in social networks, far from it!). The true reason for the NYT blocking me? Because those posing as “liberals”, who are part of the elite, are more often than not, not “liberal” at all, but simply, venal, corrupt, greedy!

Gender equality is a fundamental human trait. Any ideology ordering otherwise should be unlawful to preach, especially to the youth. Not all variant of Islam are sexist: they are outliers in the “Sufi” tradition, for example in West Africa. However mainstream Islam is deeply sexist, women being literally at best only a fraction of men.

That present day “liberals” refuse to see this means that they are just taking orders from the powers that be (the ones which got them elected to start with). A basic triangular conspiracy exists between oil-producing monarchies, international finance and elected politicians. It was set in stone when president Roosevelt met with Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, king of Saudi Arabia, in 1945.

The attitude of present day “liberal” leaders relative to Islam is revealing of their general attitude relative to the elites and the mighty: they join them rather than contradict them. Their positions arise from greed for their personal power, rather than principle for humanity.

****

(Part of) Text from Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani below:

The so-called “left”, or self-described “liberal” elite, verily, an elite of leeches, has never read Voltaire, or Montaigne. All it read is that Wall Street and Saudi Arabia have all the money. Compare Ayaan’s saying with Voltaire’s own:”One must crush infamy!”

June 22, 2017

… “Senator Harris took her seat in front of us as a member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. We were there to testify about the ideology of political Islam, or Islamism.

… just moments before the hearing began, a man wearing a Muslim prayer cap had stood up and heckled us, putting Capitol police officers on high alert. We were girding ourselves for tough questions.

But they never came. The Democrats on the panel, including Senator Harris and three other Democratic female senators — North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan and Missouri’s Claire McCaskill — did not ask either of us a single question.

This wasn’t a case of benign neglect. At one point, Senator McCaskill said that she took issue with the theme of the hearing itself. “Anyone who twists or distorts religion to a place of evil is an exception to the rule,” she said. “We should not focus on religion,” she said, adding that she was “worried” that the hearing, organized by Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin, would “underline that.” In the end, the only questions asked of us about Islamist ideologies came from Senator Johnson and his Republican colleague, Senator Steve Daines from Montana.

Just as we are invisible to the mullahs at the mosque, we were invisible to the Democratic women in the Senate.

How to explain this experience? Perhaps Senators Heitkamp, Harris, Hassan and McCaskill are simply uninterested in sexism and misogyny. But obviously, given their outspoken support of critical women’s issues, such as the kidnapping of girls in Nigeria and campus sexual assault, that’s far from the case.

No, what happened that day was emblematic of a deeply troubling trend among progressives when it comes to confronting the brutal reality of Islamist extremism and what it means for women in many Muslim communities here at home and around the world. When it comes to the pay gap, abortion access and workplace discrimination, progressives have much to say. But we’re still waiting for a march against honor killings, child marriages, polygamy, sex slavery or female genital mutilation.

Sitting before the senators that day were two women of color: Ayaan is from Somalia; Asra is from India. Both of us were born into deeply conservative Muslim families. Ayaan is a survivor of female genital mutilation and forced marriage. Asra defied Shariah by having a baby while unmarried. And we have both been threatened with death by jihadists for things we have said and done. Ayaan cannot appear in public without armed guards.

In other words, when we speak about Islamist oppression, we bring personal experience to the table in addition to our scholarly expertise.

Yet the feminist mantra so popular when it comes to victims of sexual assault — believe women first — isn’t extended to us. Neither is the notion that the personal is political. Our political conclusions are dismissed as personal; our personal experiences dismissed as political.

That’s because in the rubric of identity politics, our status as women of color is canceled out by our ideas, which are labeled “conservative” — as if opposition to violent jihad, sex slavery, genital mutilation or child marriage were a matter of left or right. This not only silences us, it also puts beyond the pale of liberalism a basic concern for human rights and the individual rights of women abused in the name of Islam.

There is a real discomfort among progressives on the left with calling out Islamic extremism. Partly they fear offending members of a “minority” religion and being labeled racist, bigoted or Islamophobic. There is also the idea, which has tremendous strength on the left, that non-Western women don’t need “saving” — and that the suggestion that they do is patronizing at best. After all, the thinking goes, if women in America still earn less than men for equivalent work, who are we to criticize other cultures?

This is extreme moral relativism disguised as cultural sensitivity. And it leads good people to make excuses for the inexcusable. The silence of the Democratic senators is a reflection of contemporary cultural pressures. Call it identity politics, moral relativism or political correctness — it is shortsighted, dangerous and, ultimately, a betrayal of liberal values.

The hard truth is that there are fundamental conflicts between universal human rights and the principle of Shariah, or Islamic law, which holds that a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man’s; between freedom of religion and the Islamist idea that artists, writers, poets and bloggers should be subject to blasphemy laws; between secular governance and the Islamist goal of a caliphate; between United States law and Islamist promotion of polygamy, child marriage and marital rape; and between freedom of thought and the methods of indoctrination, or dawa, with which Islamists propagate their ideas.

Defending universal principles against Islamist ideology, not denying that these conflicts exist, is surely the first step in a fight whose natural leaders in Washington should be women like Kamala Harris and Claire McCaskill — both outspoken advocates for American women.

We believe feminism is for everyone. Our goals — not least the equality of the sexes — are deeply liberal. We know these are values that the Democratic senators at our hearing share. Will they find their voices and join us in opposing Islamist extremism and its war on women?”

According to Aischa, child-bride of Prophet Muhammad, the Qur’an as written by the Third Caliph, Uthman, was extremely sexist. Less sexist version of Muhammad’s message were destroyed under the order of Uthman, who ended assassinated as a result. Aischa fought with an army for her anti-sexist views, but, differently from European women, she was defeated at the famous “Battle of the Camel”.

Straight out of Qur’an and Hadith:

To divorce a wife, a Muslim man can just say “Talaq, talaq, talaq” That’s called the instant divorce law. It was controversial even in Muhammad’s times, and Muhammad criticized it. However, according to the Hadith, the Prophet practiced it. Even the New York Times recognizes this instant divorce law is a problem today, all the way to India.

All the more as, according to Hadith, “irrevocable divorce” does not allow for any sort of allowance or remittance.

The Qur’an Surah An-Nisa, 34 defines the relations between husbands and wives. Quran 4:34 reads:

Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and beat them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.

— Qur’an 4:34, [5]

Some of the relation of Islam with sexism is nearly hilarious. Here is a Hadith showing how much of lala land Islam is: Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Zam’a: The Prophet said, “None of you should flog his wife as he flogs a slave and then have sexual intercourse with her in the last part of the day.”

However, a bit of discipline is good for the ladies:

— Sahih al-Bukhari, 7:62:132 see also Sahih al-Bukhari, 8:73:68

In Sunni Hadith, violent sexism rules, and is reiterated ad nauseam. here is an example: Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife. — Sunan Abu Dawood, 11:2142

The unending litany of verbal and “Sharia legal” abuse hurled at women in Islam sacred texts is properly astounding. It goes against human nature so deeply that any civilization submitting to it can only fail.

***

We Already Knew This, But A Slightly Different Angle Is Instructive:

Making women uneducated and submissive make them stupid, and thus, so for their children, and the grown-ups who follow, insuring a vicious circle of less than optimal intelligence and culture. Thus Islam’s sexism is self-reproducing, and self-defeating.

Islam is not just in contradiction with the present (“Western”) civilization, and the United Nations Charter (whose foundation is basically:”All Persons Are Created Equal”). Any preaching otherwise should be outlawed. Islam is also in contradiction with human ethology itself, the core of human strength, as human sexual equality is a genetic given.

But so, of course, is plutocracy. In Islam, plutocracy sees an enemy of its enemy, humanity. So they are friends!

[The integral version of the text above from Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Arsa Nomani was published first in the New York Times under the title:“Kamala Harris, Speak Up. Don’t Be Silent on Women’s Rights.” I spent an hour trying to persuade the New York Times to publish my comment, it replied by interfering with my computer, erasing text. Then the New York Times changed the title to “They Brushed off Kamala Harris, Then She Brushed Us Off.” So, according to the New York Times, the text of the two ladies above is not about women’s rights anymore, but all about ladies “brushing off” each other.

A fight for human rights oppressed by a misogynistic ideology has been replaced, in its title, according to the New York Times, by cat ladies fighting for supremacy. Thus the New York Times manipulate minds, one moody detail at a time… All the comments are also doctored, selected, to present a biased view of what We The People are thinking. British tabloids have used that method for decade, hence Brexit. The New York Times is ever more brazen in its practice of it.]

Another Day, Another Islamist Attack: Outlaw The Preaching!

June 19, 2017

Ah, for a respite from heavy philosophizing such as pondering consciousness and the associated unconscious… We can trust the barbarians to provide us with what they passes for entertainment in the desert, namely, mayhem… (Desert raiding by nomads a la Muhammad, attacking traders and peasants, is even older than civilization…)

A French Islam practitioner attacked the Gendarmerie on the Champ Elysees. The assailant, complete with explosive, assault gun, etc. was badly burned and died at the scene (the Gendarmerie is part of the army, not the police, and is heavily armed).

Literal Islam, as depicted literally in the Qur’an, and, worse, the Hadith, is incompatible with Western civilization. This is not being insulting, unfair or racist to say so. It was explicitly designed that way by Muhammad. Muhammad expressed himself very clearly: he thought the Jews and Christians had failed to enact the Bible literally. He also wrote that the Greeks, Romans and Persians, with their empires, had prevented the Arabs to raid, for a full millennium. With Muhammad’s new religion, this was all going to change: demographics and Jihad would be cranked up. 

Core Of Western Civilization Under Siege. Notre Dame is not just a cathedral built nine centuries ago. It was also where what came to be known as the “UNIVERSITY” was located, for many centuries before that. By law the Cathedral Of Paris had (the best in Europe) secular teaching in Europe, already by the Seventh Century. It was an obligatory mandate, a law imposed ordered onto all religious establishment by Salian (secular) law.  When the old cathedral was demolished and replaced by the present one, the mandate went on.

That Islam is a war machine against Greco-Roman civilization  (and even against the related Persian Sassanid civilization) is the incontrovertible fact, made plain in the sacred texts of Islam. It’s written black on white. Ultimately, there are thus only two outcomes: 1) Literal interpretation and preaching of Literal Islam is outlawed, and the law against preaching murder of most of the population is enforced. Or, 2) Western civilization is destroyed (as Muhammad intended explicitly to do, and that’s why he personally led the first attack against the Roman empire).

This is simple, and it should not be very hard to understand to those with independent thinking capability. Those who have not spent, let’s say one hundred hours reading the full Qur’an and the most significant parts of the Hadith, should not be considered cogent enough to disagree stridently with this (and most Muslims have not read the Qur’an, let alone the Hadith; they only know some deceiving passages which carefully avoid the gist of the message of the Messenger…) The Qur’an for example, orders “a rain of stones” on homosexuals. On this particular subject, the Qur’an quotes Lot, in the Bible’s Old Testament.

And so on. Most people nowadays belong to categories of people which the Qur’an orders to be “thrown in the fire”. The Hadith 41; 685, repeated many times in different variants, says that: …”Allah’s Messenger… : The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will FIGHT against the Jews and the Muslims would KILL them…” Next time you consider Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights, and its influence beyond that, remember this… 

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2015/01/16/thought-crime/

It is possible to construct variant of “Sufi” Islam which are fully compatible with Western civilization (as found historically in Senegal). Those should be encouraged, promoted. But they have been swamped by Literal Islam, deadly enemy of civilization.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/islam-religion-of-fighting-says-caliph/

Preaching hate crimes should be considered to be a grievous crime, especially when targeting children. It does not matter if it is in the name of the Arab God, or the Aztec God Huichilobos. Preaching, or teaching hatred should be punished by very long prison sentences, and expulsion (when possible).

Notice that ordering to kill many categories of people, as the Qur’an orders to, is tantamount to order human sacrifices of most of the population. In the Roman Republic, religions ordering human sacrifices were outlawed into inexistence. So there we have a legal precedent, more than 2,000 years old.

This was in answer to an article in the Economist, typical of the cluelessness of journalists :

Why Europe’s Muslims do not chant in unison, as its politicians would like

The messy politics of European Islam

Erasmus, Jun 18th 2017

IN THE realm of European Islam, nothing is going quite to plan. In the perfect scenario of the continent’s mainstream politicians, the law-abiding majority of Muslim citizens would be coming together now in a massive, thundering condemnation of terrorism. That in turn would create a renewed social consensus, paving the way for the defeat of terrorism in its latest, horrible forms, as it has been perpetrated in places like Nice, Brussels, Berlin, Manchester and London.

Reality turns out to be messier…

[Prime Minister] Theresa May threw out a sharp-tongued challenge to British Muslims in the aftermath of the murderous attack that began at London Bridge on June 3rd. The problem, the prime minister declared, is ideological and cultural, rather than simply a challenge for the police and security services. In her words,

There is…far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out across the public sector and across society. That will require some difficult, and often embarrassing, conversations`…The whole of our country needs to take on this extremism, and we need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities but as one truly United Kingdom.

… [Hundreds of british Imams reacted…] But look closely at the prayer leaders’ declaration, as published by the Muslim Council of Britain, and you will see that they are far from following Mrs May’s hymn-sheet. The first batch of imams to sign the “no funeral” statement added some important qualifications:

The statement should not detract from the seriousness of oppression and persecution occurring around the world, especially to Muslims, whom we remember in our prayers by day and night…It should also not detract from deeply unfortunate statements issuing forth from some quarters, which seek to implicate the entire Muslim community and the religion of Islam, or insinuate that one system of values is ontologically superior to another.

Their message to Mrs May and her government might be paraphrased as something like: “If you want a broad conversation about ideology and culture, even an embarrassing one, let’s have one. But it won’t be the sort of conversation that you want or expect. You want to talk about imams with hardline ideas about gender, sexuality and self-segregation by Muslims, because you think all that is a gateway to terrorism. Well, we want to talk about Muslim grievances, including those over British foreign policy.”

In France, meanwhile, some lines of communication that used, for better or worse, to connect mainstream politics with Muslim community groups seem to have failed. One of the most widely organised Islamic bodies in France had hitherto been called the Union of Islamic Organisations of France (UOIF). It recently vowed to rename itself the “Muslims of France”. It is regarded as being ideologically close to the Muslim Brotherhood abroad, which it denies. During the 2012 presidential poll, it backed François Hollande, the successful Socialist candidate.

This year, Marine Le Pen, a far-right presidential candidate, repeatedly alleged that the UOIF and her centrist rival Emmanuel Macron were somehow linked in a disreputable pact. The charge completely failed to stick, or to prevent his victory, but it did force its targets onto the defensive. The Muslim organisation urged people to go to the polls but made no recommendation; and, in contrast with previous years, secular politicians stayed away from the organisation…

Staying away will not be enough. The essence of the problem has to be addressed. Neither the Bible, nor the Qur’an should rule the Republic. And serious death threats should be treated as such.

Republics are best at eradicating threats. Ah, yes, but the Republic is closer to a plutocracy in all too many ways, nowadays, and that’s the crux of the matter… The media are held by plutocrats and the meta teaching of plutocrats is how, not to think (so one won’t bother them). Then they can be like Amazon, telling you everything you need, and even feeding you (Amazon just bought “Whole Foods” for 14 billion dollars).

To make it easier on plutocracy, some in the French government announced that it was OK for Google not to pay tax. And I actually talked to a high level Intel engineer at a party in Atherton, California, 48 hours ago, and he told me, and others, that he didn’t see why large companies should pay tax. He added he didn’t believe in conspiracy theories… My answer discombobulated him, deeply, and he physically left the party. I guess I am a party pooper…

Islam: Religion Of Fighting, Says Caliph!

June 10, 2017

[Those who are tired of my all too learned discourses, should go directly to the smart, yet simple, video linked below; and suffer through the first minute of half deserved “conservative” rant, before the interesting part.]

Strange Disease Of Islamophilia Condemned By Youth, At Last!

The admiration for, and lies about, Literal Islam, is the miracle which keeps on giving. To world plutocrats.

Islam took over what had been, for millennia, the richest, most innovative and most civilized part of the world, and turned it into the poorest, dumbest, and most war-torn wastes, until oil was found. Any question?

Well, some had questions. As the president of Senegal, Abu Diouf, said, Saudi style, Salafist Wahhabi Islam is “not my religion”. This is why 100 severely different versions of Islam were created. In opposition to Salafist Islam. However, Salafist Islam is now propelled by Arabian oil (and Wall Street, and Washington power standing behind since the 1930s: the swamp Trump talks about is full of oil…) 

The Caliph has spoken. In Some Ways, The “Islamist State” Is More Honest Than Main Stream Intellectuals In The West

A young and slick Utuber looked into ‘Avallone Hunter’,  looked into Islam, and made a good job at it. He particularly got it right on “moderate Muslims”, who, according to the Qur’an are hypocrites, thus to be killed. Anyway, the video is good, once you pass the gratuitous attack and passing conflation of “progressives” with their opposites, at the beginning of the work (I am a progressive, so I didn’t appreciate that!)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d8GDo49QKY

Do not despair of youth: they learn. Showing in great numbers, contrarily to habit, and expectations, the less than 24 years old just helped Theresa May, the plutocratic fanatic UK PM, lose her majority in the UK Parliament. The youth in the UK is pro-Europe and anti-xenophobic. They know more, and have a more appropriate mood than their elders. Alleluia! Terrorism will go away, once the youth is aware of why it appeared in the first place.

The “West” by the way, is the descendant, in more ways than one, some cultural, some genetics, of that richest, most innovative, and most civilized part of the world, which I call not the Middle East, but the Middle Earth, because it is what it is.

Italians are partly, genetically, Iraqis: Mesopotamians migrated over to the north shore of the Mediterranean, with their bio-engineered grain and know-how, bringing themselves and agriculture. 5,000 years before Greek civilization. This migration was recently genetically traced through the islands of the Aegean. Much “Greek” math was Egyptian, Sumer cities, 5,000 years ago, started the alphabet, and “Europa” was a Phoenician Princess (who travelled over to present day Europe; actually she would have been kidnapped…)

Considering the logic of Islam, it’s easy to see why all the gold it touches turns to poisonous mercury. Islam is an essentially hypocritical faith, saying science has to be pursued, but then “disbelievers” have to be killed. That’s, at best, absurd: how can one develop science without disbelief? How can want to develop science without feeling that creation, as it happened, is not perfect, but, instead, requires thorough explanation?Doesn’t Islam say we should stick to revelation, as transmitted by Mr. Messenger, an epileptic analphabet hallucinating in the desert?

Islam seems to have aimed at making into a capital offense all and any behavior that would not make Muslims reproduce like rabbits, to feed those vast armies of conquerors and jihadists. So women are supposed to be baby machines, and any man not inclined to engross them, within strict guidelines, is a traitor.

This all happened in the lifetime of one person. The Ferocity Of Islam Insured Fast, Gigantic Conquests, Before Resistance Could Be Mustered. After the tremendous defeats of Islam at the hands of the Franks, Islam was broken, never to grow again until very recently… (Except for the conquest of Turkey, and the slow drip into Africa…)

Islam is the war religion par excellence, and Adolf Hitler admired it for that.

The irony, of course, is that the Islam superstition, by separating men and women, is intrinsically homosexual: after, men are supposed to be with men, and women, with women. Actually, it’s even better than that:  women are supposed to be out of sight. So Muslim men intrinsically only love to have around other men, they have androphilia (men loving men).

The ferocity with which homosexuals are killed in Islam is precisely because Islam is so homosexual. It’s both a lie and a lifeline. An attempt to disguise what is going while avoiding the accusation of sodomy by the West which helped to destroy the Aztecs.

Violence in Islam is no accident, coincidence or consequence. It’s intrinsic. Violence, the violence of armies, is what made Islam possible. In a few years, Islam conquered the largest empire the world had ever known. Precisely because those who (claim to) die for Allah are promised paradise.

The question then becomes: why did such a monster superstition become an object of adoration on the part of so many intellectuals in the West?

Because many intellectuals in the West developed a hatred for civilization, shortly before or coincident and causally related to Stalinism, Nazism, Fascism and Maoism… Much of the anti-colonialist struggle, however justified, resorted to hating civilization all together… Although it’s civilization which had made it possible in the first place!

Many intellectuals became rich, powerful and influential this way. Hating civilization became their business model. And in Islam they found an ideology which had been created to hate the “West”, the Greco-Roman empire, and also the other civilization, the Persian Sassanid empire. Muhammad led the first attack against Rome. Within ten years, Persia was destroyed and the richest parts of the Roman empire had been conquered by the Islamists.

Muhammad didn’t see it: he died by surprise, in great pain, screaming on his deathbed in Mecca, for days, that he had been poisoned. By fellow Muslims.

That’s the drawback of a lethal, dictator friendly religion: it kills a lot.

So many Western intellectuals loved Islam, because Islam hated the “West”, and they, themselves, made a (dishonest) profession of hating the “West” (which fed them so well). The hater of my enemy is my friend, some say, forgetting about crocodiles, which show that the eater of their enemy is not really friendly. So did Hitler love Islam, and hate the “West”. In general, plutocrats hate civilization, so they are natural enemies of Islam.

The Qur’an orders to follow dictators as if they were god, as long as they are Muslims… Consider:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2008/10/02/god-hates-democracy/

US oilmen and sneaky British imperialists saw, as early as the 1930s, that they would gain by instrumentalizing Islam. So here we are. All Islam propaganda goes through Western fibers and satellites.

The problem of Islam is thus way larger than just Islam. Yes, Islam is the religion of desert raiding, it was established that way by a caravan raider. Yes, Islam is ideal for brutal military conquerors, and dictators, thus many of these, from the Turks to the Mongols, adopted it. But Islam is more than that. Islam is an ideology, one of many, of the sort which serve a much bigger species of monsters, always devouring civilizations. Islam is the tool of something maximally monstrous: unchained, free ranging plutocracy.  

Let’s finish on a lighter, enlightening note on how public opinion gets durably molded. I just saw a Suisse Romande report on what happened in 1971, when six high level reporters and producers were fired from TSR (called RTS now), the state (and only) French-speaking TV in Switzerland.

The present Swiss TV, RTS was able to access the documentation of the time, and interviewed both the leftists and the police officers, or their superiors, involved at the time. Basically what happened is that there was a “political police” in Switzerland (it was secret that there was a political police). So important TV personalities and producers were followed by the secret police and information was gathered anonymously (as Google, Facebook and company are doing now). Patterns were established: some were living with someone else while not married, some were heard saying things which were deemed to be revolutionary. In the end the secret police sent a list of six persons, asking them to be fired. The TV TSR did so. TSR accused the six of “subversion and sabotage“. It was alleged that they had relations with foreign powers (Cuba).

The six fired alleged defamation (in truth they were simple middle class, with nearly no rebellious spirit about them, and no connection with organizations or foreign powers). There was a trial for defamation; the chief of the federal police (equivalent to the FBI) came and said the TSR was justified, so the judges sided with the TV channel. All of this happened because those six wrote TV shows disturbing to the political class. (They more or less won in appeal, because the Federal police chief was unwilling to reveal a secret police was spying on the citizenry). However those six and others connected to them were excluded from TV, and thus wide influence, for the next thirty years… These sorts of manipulations is happening all over the world, making sure that We The People think and feels just what the ascending plutocracy cares about (like sport teams scores).

To this day, one of two principals in this affair, Rene’ Schenker, says that he cannot tell what happened, because if he did, justice would have to re-open an inquiry. The other principal obeying orders from above says that: “Yes, we fired with canon at flies“.  This is still happening. Look at the New York Times: it bans all my comments, one of many media to do so. The idea is that my ideas and observations should not be known. Probably thousands of others are in the same situation (interesting commenters have disappeared at the NYT). However, the New York Times enjoys privileges (say sits in attendance at the White House). Thus a propaganda system is established: Islamophobia is racism, Obama is a great progressive, etc… If Islamophobia is racist, any analysis of why Islam, that enemy of the Middle Earth, re-appeared, coincident with the supremacy of oil and Wall Street, and the discussion of the deal with Abdulaziz Ibn Saud in 1945, is excluded. And so on.

Last week, I read some extracts of the Qur’an to good, left, progressive, socialist, rabidly pro-Clinton voters, sensitive souls who cried when Trump got elected instead. It was a little experiment, but I was surprised by their overwhelming incredulity. They were astounded, they were aghast, they couldn’t believe it, their gaping mouths went into huge Os. They were so astounded, they thought I was making it up, and they came over to read the Qur’an by themselves. They had never did it before, but they though they knew Islam… Strange times, indeed… All too many people do not even know what it is to know. They feel they know, what they couldn’t possibly know… except if they believed fully whatever the authorities want them to believe.

Orders To Kill Non Muslims Are Found Early In Qur’an

June 5, 2017

One can’t understand Islamist fanaticism, without understanding Christianism, its prologue and paradigm. On the face of it, Islamophilia is the sort of mood we didn’t have since Roman Emperor Constantine, under the skeptical eye of his Frankish shock troops, imposed his Christianophilia on the gigantic empire. How? Christianism has it that non-believers should be killed. That was made into law by Roman emperor Theodosius in 390 CE.

See: Luke 19:27: Don’t Ask What God Can Do For You, Ask Who You Can Kill In His Name?

From this, this lethal stupidification, the empire would collapse within a generation (by 400 CE). Later, the Franks would acquire full power, re-impose tolerance. Christianofascism would return to the core of the (Franco-Germano-Roman) empire only in 1026 CE, when, for the first time in five centuries or so, half a dozen people got executed for heresy. Soon the Christians would kill millions, probably dozens of millions, from Ireland to Jerusalem. Now the Islamists execute non-believers (a sort even the Christians would not kill; heretics and non-believers were two different notions!) Islamists execute Islamists all over Western Europe. Whereas it started with six or so in 1026 CE, the Islamists have killed and wounded thousands in two years, in Europe:

Extermination of civilians for all to see…

Why do (some) Muslims kill non-Muslims with so much gusto? Because they read the Qur’an, and this is what is ordered there. And it’s not restricted to the Verse of the Sword (Surah 9, verse 5). A Palestinian friend, Lalo Dagach, who believes that Islam is a huge problem, for so-called “Muslims”, and progress in general, took three pictures from just the first, and most pacific, chapter of the Qur’an. I reproduce those pictures below. For a full complement, consider “Violence In Holy Qur’an“. (You will see that homosexuals should be stoned; And remember the Hadith is much more violent, even observing that all Jews have to be called before Last Judgement!)

There are orders to kill non-Muslims as early as the first chapter of the Qur’an, the Surah 2, called “The Cow”:

Need I say More?

Those who disbelieve will have great torment“. It’s also possible to disbelieve while believing one believes, by deceiving God, the believers, and oneself. God has put disease in their hearts. “Agonizing torment awaits for them“… This is in page 5 of the Holy Qur’an… It’s not like it’s hidden somewhere obscure…

More of the same

“Fire is prepared for disbelievers, whose fuel is men…” This is in page 6 of the super Holy Qur’an…

This on page 7 of the Holy Qur’an…

By the way, The Cow, which we are quoting here, is considered to be a very pacific, innocuous and docile part of the Qur’an, and it is…

What of this calling to cull all Jews? Hadith 41;685: …”Allah’s Messenger… : The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will FIGHT against the Jews and the Muslims would KILL them…”

Teaching, preaching, presenting all this as the ultimate reality should be viewed as thought crime. When directed at children, it should be viewed as the worst corruption, bar none. Amen. That does not mean that it should be proscribed as fiction. No, not at all, quite the opposite. As fiction it should prescribed, not proscribed.

Make no mistake: I love the Qur’an. I also love the original movie “Alien”, where a space monster eats astronauts. I love the Qur’an more, because it’s substance is much richer. More things happen: Allah gets advice from Djinns, debate with Shatan (Satan = Pluto = Hades). We humans, Allah tells us, “should not ponder these sort of things because Allah knows, and you do not.” Allah also makes those who talk too much drink molten lead, and enjoys deluding humanity. Apparently, once enough humanity has been deluded, there will be plenty to “skin alive, and then regrow their skins, to be able to skin them again”…

There have been problem gods before: contemplate the Aztecs Huichilobos. Huichilobos encouraged Montezuma and his successor to resist Cortez forcefully. At some point 66 Spaniards captured in battle were sacrificed on top of the tallest cue of Mexico, in full view of the Spanish army. There, on top of that double headed giant extremly tall pyramids, the Spaniards were forced to dance, before their living, beating hearts were torn out. The destruction of Mexico (that was the name of the city) was caused by the belief in Huichilobos (and the priest who were the Messengers of his orders). Cortes and his captains insisted that Mexico was being destroyed, stone house by stone house, canal by canal, just because the Aztecs kept on listening to that devil of Huichilobos.

The Spaniards filled the canals with the house debris, so that they had fields of fire and flat ground for the armored cavalry. Civilization can’t be denied, especially when enraged.

The annihilation of Mexico itself created a precedent of annihilation which enabled (some of) the Spaniards, later to annihilate other nations of Mesoamerica which had not been aggressive towards the Spaniards (that was viewed as a war crime at the time in Spain). Violence breeds violence.

Five Arabic speaking nations are starting tomorrow a sort of economic blockade of Qatar, accusing it to foster terrorism through financing of terrorist networks, including Al Qaeda and the Islamist State. The nations taking sanctions are Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen…

The blockade is total: Saudi Arabia revoked the licence of Qatar Airways, Qatar citizens have two weeks to leave Saudi Arabia. People in Qatar are rushing supermarkets to store food. Most Qatar food comes through Saudi Arabia. (Amusingly, and tellingly, Qatar has huge investments in France, something long harshly criticized therein…)

Very good, and a good consequence from Trump’s visit. However, as I have pointed out forever and a day, for many years,  the present Islamist resurrection was a tool deployed initially by British imperialists and especially US oilmen and their Wall Street accomplices. To this day, most of this propaganda passes through media (fibers and satellites) exclusively controlled by western plutocracy. There is the choice, and thus the Achilles Heel…

But first the Western thinkers need to understand that Islamophilia is an attempt to make us all brutish and stupid… (Not to say that British, or Western plutocracy is not insufferable and brutish; but please notice that plutocrats are not those being assassinated…)

Another Islam Attack

April 20, 2017

Why to use the neologism “Islam attack”? Because one talks of a “heart” attack. One does not talk of heartist attack. Killing the unbelievers, pagans, polytheists, apostates, homosexuals, unfaithful, and those who sleep around is ordered in the Qur’an, it is intrinsic to the Qur’an, it’s the most significant part of the Qur’an, and the absolute proof of this is that the calls to murders of the Qur’an formally abrogate the calls to peace and love therein: please read it before converting…

So Mr. “Mohamed”, shouting “Allahu Akbar”, after the police grabbed him in Fresno, before he could reload, killed four white people two days ago. (In both Paris and Fresno, California, police intervened quasi-instantaneously, limiting the number of dead; Fresno has a gunshot detection system, a sort of sound radar for gun firing… However this means we live in terror; I was actually personally threatened 2 days ago, while with my family, and left the area ASAP… In what I view as a terror incident…)

Some commenter on this site, an exiled French French hater called Francois Luong, told me it was “uncouth” to read the Qur’an, and to quote it. Islam was a religion of peace, that’s all he needed to know. To think otherwise, to think one could quote the Qur’an, was “racist”.

Well, facts are facts. Hitler used to call Nazism a religion of peace, anxious to help minorities (not kidding; OK, it’s Himmler who dared to say that Nazism was a religion). Those who defend an ideology, however criminal, will present it as most attractive. And the more murderous a religion, the more attractive one will try to present it. This was true for Stalinism, as it was to Jonestown cult.

Paris Islam attack, April 20, 2017. Recognized by Islamist State. Those who tell us to “respect” Islam, are the ultimate terrorists. Islam does not have to be respected anymore than Christianism ordering to bring the unbelievers in front of Jesus to kill them. By the way, the Qur’an refers explicitly to Lot in the Bible for the killing of homosexuals (“with a rain of stones“)

Mr. Luong, the pseudo-intellectual above, a self-declared “poet”, considers himself to be, and calls himself, on the Internet, a “terrorist”. Methinks that, as long as this sort of violent nihilistic discourse is tolerated on the Internet, the fight against terrorism, and not just Islam terrorism, will be a leaky ship. One cannot condemn uneducated losers to drift towards violent terror, when haughty pseudo-intellectuals thinks it’s fashionable to preach activities conducive to violent Islam all over the Internet. (Luong made a campaign against me, contacting my contacts, in media or academia, calling me “racist”, “colonialist”, etc., and urging them to block me and vilipend me. He told me he had to say all these lies, because I “had to be stopped”, and that was the only way to do it. Thus, reading the Qur’an and quoting it, has to be stopped… even through unlawful defamation; in the EU, or the USA, defamation to injure someone is unlawful…)

Attacks in Paris weaken the French Republic, thus its socialist, egalitarian tendencies, hence reinforce the Republic’s natural enemy, already obvious in the 1930s: international plutocracy. Some of these plutocrats were decorated both by Stalin and Hitler, and were the highest authorities of the so-called “democratic” party of the USA (I am alluding to the Harriman Brothers here; but not just them!).

To find the criminal, find to whom it profits most.

Ironically, before the dictatorship of Muhammad, in Mecca alone there were 360 basic deities, and that does not count the Moon, and three main goddesses. Not at all like Islam, at first sight (although symbols such as the Moon, the Kaabah, a sacred meteorite, were kept). Yet, at second sight the most important character of the pre-Islam Arabic religion was preserved: blood, and thew spilling thereof. Too many gods, and they drank too much blood. Indeed, both in the Sixth and Seventh centuries in Arabia, huge wars were all about religion, about pre-Islam religions!

Thus the mood of religious mayhem pre-existed Islam, it was strong even before the birth of Muhammad. What was going-on? Clearly religious bellicism was all about unsophisticated birth control, and carried-on in Islam. This explains both the aggressivity of fundamentalist Islam, and why Islam tends to stay stuck to desertic regions.

When Islam got to sub-Saharan Africa, among the herders and peasants of the Sahel, much more pacific, than savage desert raiders, hard-core desert Islam was transmogrified. “Sufi” Islam was invented by the sedentary peasants, and thrived… More modern and less bloody characters than Muhammad/Mahomet/Mohamed became the most important prophets.

“Sufi” Islam prospered, until the flow of Wahhabist oil driven, Wall Street plutocratic driven propaganda in recent decades.

Hirsi Ali: Fight Violent, Post-622 CE Islam.

April 9, 2017

Voltaire: Crush Infamy!

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Islam’s Most Eloquent Apostate, Warns That West Is Wrong About The Nature Of Islam’s Threat. The West’s obsession with ‘terror’ has been a mistake, she argues. Dawah, the ideology behind Islam Terror, is the broader, and truly fundamental threat. (This is the position I held for more than a decade.)

***

Ever More Muslim Crazies Are Embracing Ever More Hardcore Islam:

Anybody who reads the basic “Recitation” (Qur’an) of Islam in full, unabridged, unmanipulated edition, knows that it apparently very explicitly said there that those who fight, or kill (otherwise undefined) “unbelievers” and “pagans” will go to “paradise”. More and more angry Muslims are discovering this truth about Islam, long occulted by those who sciolistically pretended that Islam was just “a religion of peace”. Hence the continual attacks, which, themselves are just a symptom of a deeper problem (consider Turkey’s drift towards crazed tyranny, one political manipulation at a time, to see what I mean…)

Just in the first two weeks of Spring 2017, there were deadly or potentially lethal Muslim plots and attacks in England, Belgium, France, Sweden, Norway, Egypt (excluding the war theaters of Iraq and Syria). Attacks killed or gravely wounded dozens (more than 45 Christians in, or in front, of churches, were killed in Egypt alone on April 9, 2017; one attack aimed at killing the Coptic Pope, was thwarted by police, massacring eleven dead, and much more gravely wounded). It does not have to do with an ideology called “terror”: there is no such a thing, whatever the Kenyan thought. On the other hand, there is something called “Islam”, and it has everything to do with those attacks. Ms. Ali now explains this with a detail similar to the one I have used for more than a decade (I am a partisan of the original Islam found in Senegal). 

The Fifth Person Killed In The London Fanatic Muslim Attack Of March 2017. Romanian Architect Andreea Cristea Fell In the Thames (behind her) Thrown There By the SUV Driven By English Born On Muslim Jihad Against Unbelievers. She Died After More Than A Week’s Agony In A London Hospital. A Similar Attack Followed In Stockholm Within Days

***

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, born a Muslim in Somalia in 1969, is Islam’s most eloquent apostate: As a Somali Muslim woman she was submitted to extreme abuse, including genital mutilation. She escaped to civilization, and was accepted as a refugee there, later to be elected as a MP. However, European authorities did not take her security as well as necessary. Famous Dutch citizens and intellectuals (Leo Van Gogh, an example) were cruelly assassinated by Muslims, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali had to flee to the USA (there are at least ten times more Muslims in Western Europe than in North America).

Ms. Hirsi Ali is a research fellow in Stanford and was interviewed there for the Wall Street Journal by another researcher, Mr. Varadarajan, a research fellow in journalism at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. I liberally quoted Hirsi Ali’s answers in what follows.

***

Watch Your Tongue: Islam May Fatwa You To Death:

Ayaan can’t go anywhere, at any time of day, without a bodyguard. Indeed, Ali is soft-spoken, perfectly logical, cogent, she is the most dangerous foe of Islamism in the Occident.

Hirsi Ali has multiple fatwas on her head.

Fatwa is one of the greatest beauty of Islam. A fatwa is a decree by a Muslim, any Muslim. A fatwa can even be proffered by a Muslim, in the name of Islam, proclaiming that someone has to be killed: no need to be a Muslim priest or something like that, because Islam proclaims it has no priests (avert your eyes from Mullahs, Ayatollahs, Muftis, Marabouts, Imams, etc.). Fatwa literally meanshe gave a formal legal opinion on“. Thus anyone who believes he has Islamist legal training can proclaim a fatwa.

Thanks to the Fatwa Principle, any Muslim low life can hope to get anybody killed. Islam is the great equalizer: any sharp critique standing above can be destroyed (this effective capability to exterminate all and any serious intellectual is why, although the greatest empire ever for a millennium, in possession of all the Greco-Roman inheritance it had stolen, and most of india, Islam  generated nearly no discovery on its own). 

Theo van Gogh (1957–2004), a relative of the world-famous painter Vincent van Gogh, was a famous Dutch film director who collaborated with Ayaan Hirsi Ali to produce the short film Submission (2004). Theo was assassinated the same year by Mohammed Bouyeri, a Moroccan-Dutch Muslim, in a particularly gory murder. The assassin planted a knife in the dying Theo’s chest, pinning this way a letter explaining that Ayaan Hirsi Ali was next.

***

Reform Islam Thoroughly; Senegal Did It:

Ali used to declare Islam to be incapable of reform,while also calling on Muslims to convert or abandon religion altogether. That was incorrect: some need the crutches of superstition. Moreover, and more importantly, Islam, as practiced in West Africa, especially Senegal, was fully compatible with the Twentieth-First Century, even more so than the most advanced Christianism (I was raised in the middle of that completely open-minded Islam)

Now Ali believes that Islam can indeed be reformed.

Ali has been trying to introduce notions such as “Mecca Muslims.” These are the faithful who prefer the gentler version of Islam “originally promoted by Muhammad” before 622 CE. That was the year Muhammad fled to Medina and his religion took a militant and unlovely turn towards violence.

At the same time, Ms. Hirsi Ali urges the World to look at Islam with new eyes. She says Islam is “not just a religion, but also as a political ideology”. To regard Islam merely as a faith, “as we would Christianity or Buddhism, is to run the risk of ignoring dawa, the activities carried out by Islamists to keep Muslims energized by a campaign to impose Shariah law on all societies—including countries of the West.” 

Islam Terror Not Subjugating Ayaan Hirsi Ali Yet. Genitally Mutilated As A Child, But Mentally Unbowed, Blossoming Above The Abusive Brutes

***

Dawah, the Propaganda Of Hard Core Islam,

Ms. Hirsi Ali explains, Dawah is “conducted right under our noses in Europe, and in America. It aims to convert non-Muslims to political Islam and also to push existing Muslims in a more extreme direction.” The ultimate goal of Dawah is “to destroy the political institutions of a free society and replace them with Shariah,  a never-ending process. It ends when an Islamic utopia is achieved. Shariah everywhere!

Up to 622 CE, Muhammad had to be nice: he was living in Mecca, and the dominant tribe of the Quraish (to which he belonged!) was not amused by his antics of epileptic analphabetic under the influence of a Christian monk, his cousin, threatening Mecca’s religious tourism with his home-made religion. So in 622 CE the self-described “Messenger of God” fled to Yattrib (now Medina), and spent the next decade living off war and raids on Meccan caravans, or the Roman empire.

As a result all the Qur’an written after 622 CE is mostly about the virtues of the morality of a hard-core desert raider: lie, kill, terrorize, go to heavens. And also proclaim these virtues to be the highest, thus introducing the notion of “abrogation” of the earlier Meccan verses by the post-622 CE verses. So, for example the famous Verse of the Sword (Surah 5, verse 59), which orders to kill apostates (like Ms. Hirsi Ali), unbelievers, pagans, abrogates (renders moot, overrides) the pacific verses about tolerance, not imposing religion, etc.

Here it is, just as a reminder:

“And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”

That verse is accompanied by an entire flotilla of similar verses, supporting it. The Verse of the Sword, had it be written when Muhammad was in Mecca, would have brought Muhammad’s immediate execution (as dangerous terrorist). As it were, Muhammad was condemned to home arrest, under the penalty of death. He escaped by having his son-in-law and cousin Ali put on Muhammad’s characteristic mantle, and go to Muhammad’s bed disguised that way.

In the end, Muhammad’s tyranny did not escape punishment. At least so thought Muhammad. The self-described “Messenger of God” fell ill by surprise, at the age of 62. In bed for days, he died, screaming he had been poisoned.

***

Focus On Islam, not Terror, Says Ali; Comparing Algeria and Senegal:

Ms. Hirsi Ali observes that the West made a colossal mistake by obsessing with “terror” since 9/11.

In focusing only on acts of violence, we’ve ignored the Islamist ideology underlying those acts. By not fighting a war of ideas against political Islam—or ‘Islamism’—and against those who spread that ideology in our midst, we’ve committed a blunder.

Actually the mistake was made much earlier than that, and, like all deep mistakes, it was made by the French. Full stop, let’s back up? That would take us back, deep in history. During the Franco Algerian civil war, everybody focused on the violence (of both sides). Nobody focused on the problem of Islam itself. Indeed, how come the Jews of North Africa had become perfect French and the Muslims not?

The fundamental mistake was made by the French who honored an agreement made with Abdel Kader, early in the context of the conquest of Algeria: Abdel Kader surrendered, but only if the French state agree to never touch Islam.

No such an accord was signed in Senegal (where the French state interfered massively with Islam).

***.  

“What the Islamists call jihad is what we call terrorism,”

Adds Ayaan Hirsi Ali, “and our preoccupation with it is, I think, a form of overconfidence. ‘Terrorism is the way of the weak,’ we tell ourselves, ‘and if we can just take out the leaders and bring down al Qaeda or ISIS, then surely the followers will stop their jihad.’ But we’re wrong. Every time Western leaders take down a particular organization, you see a different one emerge, or the same one take on a different shape. And that’s because we’ve been ignoring dawa.”

As Mr. Varadarajan it in the WSJ:

Ms. Hirsi Ali wants the world to get away from this game of jihadi Whac-A-Mole and confront “the enemy that is in plain sight—the activists, the Islamists, who have access to all the Western institutions of socialization.” She chuckles here: “That’s a horrible phrase . . . ‘institutions of socialization’ . . . but they’re there, in families, in schools, in universities, prisons, in the military as chaplains. And we can’t allow them to pursue their aims unchecked.”

America needs to be on full alert against political Islam because “its program is fundamentally incompatible with the U.S. Constitution”—with religious pluralism, the equality of men and women, and other fundamental rights, including the toleration of different sexual orientations. “When we say the Islamists are homophobic,” she observes, “we don’t mean that they don’t like gay marriage. We mean that they want gays put to death.”

Islam the religion, in Ms. Hirsi Ali’s view, is a Trojan horse that conceals Islamism the political movement. Since dawa is, ostensibly, a religious missionary activity, its proponents “enjoy a much greater protection by the law in free societies than Marxists or fascists did in the past.” Ms. Hirsi Ali is not afraid to call these groups out. Her book names five including the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which asserts—and in turn receives in the mainstream media—the status of a moderate Muslim organization. But groups like CAIR, Ms. Hirsi Ali says, “take advantage of the focus on ‘inclusiveness’ by progressive political bodies in democratic societies, and then force these societies to bow to Islamist demands in the name of peaceful coexistence.”

***

Multiculturalism Is The Useful Idiocy Islamism Uses:

Ali’s strategy to fight dawah evokes parallels with the fight against Stalinism. Islamism has the help of “useful idiots”—Lenin’s concept—such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has denounced Ms. Hirsi Ali as an “extremist.” She sees that smear as a success for dawah: “They go to people like the SPLC and say, ‘Can we partner with you, because we also want to talk about what you guys talk about, which is civil rights. And Muslims are a minority, just like you.’ So, they play this victim card, and the SPLC swallows it. And it’s not just them, it’s also the ACLU. The Islamists are infiltrating all these institutions that were historic and fought for rights. It’s a liberal blind spot.”

Western liberals, she says, are also complicit in Islamist cultural segregation. She recalls a multiculturalist catchphrase from her years as a Somali refugee in Amsterdam in the early 1990s: “ ‘Integrate with your own identity,’ they used to tell us—Integratie met eigen identiteit. Of course, that resulted in no integration at all.”

***

Use The Same Methods Against Islamism As Against Stalinism:

Ms. Hirsi Ali wants the Trump administration—and the West more broadly—to counter the dawa brigade “just as we countered both the Red Army and the ideology of communism in the Cold War.” She is alarmed by the ease with which, as she sees it, “the agents of dawa hide behind constitutional protections they themselves would dismantle were they in power.” She invokes Karl Popper, the great Austrian-British philosopher who wrote of “the paradox of tolerance.” Her book quotes Popper writing in 1945: “If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”

I ask Ms. Hirsi Ali what her solution might be, and she leans once more on Popper, who proposed a right not to tolerate the intolerant. “Congress must give the president—this year, because there’s no time to lose—the tools he needs to dismantle the infrastructure of dawa in the U.S.” Dawah has become an existential menace to the West, she adds, because its practitioners are “working overtime to prevent the assimilation of Muslims into Western societies. It is assimilation versus dawa. There is a notion of ‘cocooning,’ by which Islamists tell Muslim families to cocoon their children from Western society. This can’t be allowed to happen.”

***

Force Islam To Respect The Right Of Children Not To Suffer Brainwashing:

Mr. Varadarajan asked whether Ms. Hirsi Ali is proposing to give Washington enhanced powers to supervise parenting? “Yes,” she says. “We want these children to be exposed to critical thinking, freedom, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the rights of women.” She also suggests subjecting immigrants and refugees to ideological scrutiny, so as to deny entry, residence and naturalization to those “involved with, or supportive of, Islamism.”

Ironically, Ms. Hirsi Ali would modernize the “communism test” that still applies to those seeking naturalization. “I had to answer questions when I applied for US citizenship in 2013: ‘Are you, or have you ever been, a communist?’ And I remember thinking, ‘God, that was the war back then. We’re supposed to update this stuff!Potential immigrants from Pakistan or Bangladesh, for instance, should have to answer questions—‘Are you a member of the Jamat?’ and so on. If they’re from the Middle East you ask them about the Muslim Brotherhood, ‘or any other similar group,’ so there’s no loophole.”

***

Comparing Defanging Violent Fascist Islam To  21st-Century McCarthyism,

“Is just a display of intellectual laziness,” Ms. Hirsi Ali replies. “We’re dealing here with a lethal ideological movement and all we are using is surveillance and military means? We have to grasp the gravity of dawa. Jihad is an extension of dawa. For some, in fact, it is dawa by other means.

The U.S., Hirsi Ali believes, is in a “much weaker position to combat the various forms of nonviolent extremism known as dawa because of the way that the courts have interpreted the First Amendment”—a situation where American exceptionalism turns into what she calls an “exceptional handicap.” Convincing Americans of this may be the hardest part of Ms. Hirsi Ali’s campaign, and she knows it. Yet she asks whether the judicial attitudes of the 1960s and 1970s—themselves a reaction to the excesses of Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s—might have left the U.S. ill-equipped to suppress threats from groups that act in the name of religion.

Mr. Varadarajan asked Ms. Hirsi Ali if there’s any one thing she would wish for. “I would like to be present at a conversation between Popper and Muhammad,” she says. “Popper wrote about open society and its enemies, and subjected everyone from Plato to Marx to his critical scrutiny. I’d have liked him to subject Muhammad’s legacy to the same analysis.

“But he skipped Muhammad, alas. He skipped Muhammad.”

***

Sharia is mental fascism so grotesque it enforces sciolism most efficiently, just as the plutocracy needs it:

Popper “skipped” Muhammad, because he was not a first-rate philosopher in these matters. He was greatly paid and honored by the powers that be to agitate against Communism, Socialism, and all these horrors which could ambush plutocracy.

Actually the notion of “open society” was discovered not by Popper (as I long thought, having read just Popper) but by Pericles’ second wife, the philosopher Aspasia.  Voltaire was not second-rate. He wrote a play called “Muhammad or Intolerance”. The play was an attack against Christianism disguised as one against islamism. Guess what? The play cannot be played anymore, lest it offends so-called “Muslims”.

Behind Muslims are hidden the Feudal arrangements of Arabia.

Behind the Feudal arrangements of Arabia are those of Wall Street, US plutocracy, and its Deep State entanglement .

The Gold Man government, Government Sachs…

***

Plutocracy Was Discombobulated by The Betrayal Of Trump, But It’s Regaining Control Fast. Promoting More Puppets:

And now look at the Trump administration: Goldman Sachs is crawling all over it. Not just this, but the Assistant National Security adviser is an agent of Goldman Sachs, for all to see. She didn’t make formal studies beyond college, giving her a suitable inferiority complex, but she used to earn millions a year at Goldman Sachs, having served well politicians in Washington:  Dina Powell after her first political internship concluded, took a job with Dick Armey, the Republican Majority Leader in the U.S. House of Representatives. Armey later said, “We immediately recognized her brains and her ability, and then her charm, and finally, I think somebody noticed she was gorgeous, too. Armey’s was one among a number of remarks that various governmental officials have made regarding not just her professional abilities (out of nowhere) but also her physical attractiveness (undisputable). OK, Dina speaks Arabic. Somebody speaking Arabic earning millions a year at Goldman Sachs: it looks good, in this system, this wonderfully vicious loop, this spiral down the abyss, where Arabia is a province of New York financiers…

It’s not just Obama who got selected for his looks and sciolistic brains…

Respecting literal Islam is a way to sciolism, superficial knowledge, superficial wisdom, superficial everything. All the virtues we need to enjoy plutocracy. That’s why we have so much of it. Once again, for all to see.

Instead, here is the optimal way: let’s do as the Senegalese used to do: forget the bad teaching of Muhammad which are many, and keep only the good ones, the ones oriented towards progress.

Further Horror From Sick & Depraved Superstition

March 22, 2017

Theresa May, British PM, less than two hundred meters away, spoke of the “sick and depraved attack“. Well, sick and depraved Qur’an, that is. Learn to distinguish cause and effects.

Indeed, another Islam attack, this time in London. Around 30 dead or wounded on the famous Westminster Bridge and Parliament next door. The problem with these Islam activities is not just the number of death and wounded, but that democracies have to learn to live under constant threat, deploying enormous means to insure safety, while, at the same time, master thinkers paid by the Islamists themselves tell us that we are racist if we fear Islam. Just, if we have a fear (“phobia” in Greek), we are racist. If we fear death, we are racist, whereas Islamists are not racist, because they don’t fear death? That’s what those distinguished thinkers paid by the Islam potentates and those who serve them, to serve themselves even better, want us to believe.

Many times in the Qur’an, a very short book, are variants of the following passages presented as orders from Allah, the so-called “god” therein:

Kill the idolaters wherever you find them, and capture them, and blockade them, and watch for them at every lookout…” (Qur’an 9:5).

Quran (3:56)“As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Quran (8:12)“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”  

Learn the madness: It’s racist to fear that the believers are ordered to kill you

Sometimes the Qur’an recommend to burn the idolaters, sometimes to make them drink molten lead, sometimes to crucify them, sometimes to cut their hands, feet, heads, or to remove their skin, or to submit them to a rain of stones (that’s for homosexuals), and so on and so forth.

All this was enacted. The Fourth Caliph, Ali, master thinker of Iran and Shiites in general, was partial to burning his enemies alive. Ali the pyromaniac sadist is much admired by more than 100 million devoted deranged.

***

When confronted to all this violence, Islamists always say this: the Qur’an refer to specific situations, while other parts offer universal spiritual principles. To understand the hyper violent passages of the Qur’an, we must take into account the historical circumstances at the time of its revelation.

That’s of course complete BS. Nobody knows the exact circumstances: there is no historical order in the Qur’an. Instead the chapters (Surahs) are ordered according to decreasing length.

And the fact is the book of horrors present its revelations as general principle, not giving any specifics of the circumstances (go read the book of horrors if you don’t believe me) .

Worse: the most violent verses were written in the last two years of Muhammad’s life, when he became dictator of Mecca, after persuading the Meccans to not fight him to death. Once the Meccans had let him rule over them, Muhammad changed his music, and having baited the Meccans with the soft verses of the Qur’an, switched, and hooked them hard with the vicious, lethal verses.

One should therefore not be surprised that Muhammad died suddenly, screaming he had been poisoned. At least a poisonous cockroach, well done? Well, some of Muhammad’s message was OK, like enslaving girls, rather than killing them.

***

Another lame line of argument of the Islamists is to bleat that similar violence is in the Bible. Of course: Muhammad’s entire point is that Jews and Christians did not respect the god of Abraham enough. Abraham was a famous would-be child killer, who made a religion out of the will to kill one’s own children.

Anybody who preaches to children the Bible textually and literally should be sent to prison for a long time.Same with the book of horrors we are presently excoriating.

***

By Killing Unbelievers, Islamists get their ticket to paradise:

Quran (19:70-72) – “And surely We are Best Aware of those most worthy to be burned therein. There is not one of you but shall approach it. That is a fixed ordinance of thy Lord. Then We shall rescue those who kept from evil, and leave the evil-doers crouching there.” No person will avoid going to hell, but Muslims will eventually be pulled out.

Quran (4:95) – “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. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward.” Allah distinguishes Muslims from one another based on their willingness to fight and die in Holy War. Non-violent Muslims will not receive as high a reward as the Jihadis.

Quran (8:15-16) – “O ye who believe! when ye meet the Unbelievers in hostile array, never turn your backs to them. If any do turn his back to them on such a day – unless it be in a stratagem of war, or to retreat to a troop (of his own)- he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell,- an evil refuge (indeed)!” Not only does Muhammad lay down the principle that a Muslim can serve time in Hell, but they may find themselves there for neglecting to kill unbelievers when directed to do so.

Quran (9:39) – “If ye go not forth He will afflict you with a painful doom…” It isn’t enough to believe. Muhammad is telling his soldiers (who do not want to fight) that they will be sent to hell if they do not join the battle.

Quran (3:169-170) – “Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah: And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve.” Martyrs go directly from life to paradise, where they wait for those who must first go through the Day of Judgment.

And it’s not just the Qur’an of horrors. The other two great sacred books of Islam join in ordering even more and more detailed horrors (a little known one is that all the Jews have to be killed, see Hadith 41… Before the Final Judgment can proceed…)

Hadith and Sira

Sahih Muslim (20:4678) – It has been reported on the authority of Jabir that a man said: “Messenger of Allah, where shall I be if I am killed?” He replied: “In Paradise.” The man threw away the dates he had in his hand and fought until he was killed (i. e. he did not wait until he could finish the dates).

Sahih Muslim (20:4649) – The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘All the sins of a Shahid (martyr) are forgiven except debt.

Sahih Bukhari (52:46) – I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The example of a Mujahid in Allah’s Cause– and Allah knows better who really strives in His Cause—-is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.”

Abu Dawud (14:2515) – I asked the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him): Who are in Paradise? He replied: “Prophets are in Paradise, martyrs are in Paradise.”

***

Islamist intellectuals in the West, paid by plutocrats from oil and kleptocratic finance are the root of the problem:

Indeed Islamists are paid handsomely by the Feudal warlords of the Middle East and their oil men and financial co-conspirators (the oil money has to get recycled somewhere). So, all over the West, pseudo-thinkers roam, generally paid by “institutes” and “media”, claiming that to disrespect Islam is racist (those well financed institute and media themselves paid by those who have interest that Islam, the Middle Ages . Actually, it’s the obverse which is racist, making it so that a book of horror is revered by one billion.

As long as the heads of the Islamist state hydra keeps spewing its intellectual venom, the state of Islamism will perdure. And that head is in the West. Quite officially so since the Great Bitter Lake conspiracy.

To cut off Islamism, we have to cut off respect for the book of horrors. Just as we did for the Bible. Or “Mein Kampf”. i admit that, The Bible, like “mein Kampf” is an interesting book (OK, it is much more entertaining than “Mein Kampf”, with its rains of stones on homosexual, children tortured to death, just because their dad irritated the god of Abraham, the guy who wanted to kill his son to lease his boss, etc.).

Islamism is just a symptom of plutocratization, with its own merits, as far as plutocrats are concerned, one of them being to divide us, by preaching to us that we are wrong to be afraid of death at the hands of Islamists…
