If Not Now … When?


Superman- Truth, Justice & American Way comic jk 2

Norma Zager uses just the right metaphors that should get Americans to at least generate some thoughts on the Western World’s most obvious common enemy – the believers of the purest-minded theopolitical ideology inherent in Islam.

 

Norma self-analyzed herself as to the reason her favorite comic book hero was Superman. She chose a valid yet a little different reason than I for Superman to be her favorite. As Norma pointed out Supes was born on another planet (Krypton for you non-comic book readers). For me this represents the American melting pot. America is a land of immigrants that have assimilated into one Anglo-based culture recognizing England as the Mother-Country. Former cultures honored – one culture upheld. Superman’s assimilation is represented by the experience I remember from childhood in that Supes stands for Truth, Justice and the American WayRed, White and Blue.

 

In reality Superman’s image has evolved (See Also HERE) according to the pressing needs of the times from creation to the present. I did comics from roughly 1963 right up to the end of eighth grade in roughly 1970. I grew up with Superman the consummate Patriot incapable lying, definitively knows the difference between good and evil, defender of the weak and an upholder of the Liberty and Freedom that this present day’s Conservatives understand. That is my Superman.

 

[I’m an Evangelical-Charismatic Christian that is extremely pro-Israel. So if you are in my same boat you will be interested in how the then teens Siegel and Shuster began their concept of Superman. Can you say two American-Jewish boys? They lived in an era when antisemitism was not only rampant but cool.]

If Not Now … When?

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”  Martin Luther King

 

 

Spending time last weekend at Stan Lee’s Comikaze among the superhero population, aside from the fun raised some important questions I have yet to answer.

 

First in my mind is why has my favorite superhero always been Superman with the plethora of choices from which to select.  Although I had never before given it much thought, believing it was because he was one of the first to arrive on the scene and capture our imaginations, on reflection I understand that is not the truth.

 

Truth be told, my adoration for Superman stems from the fact he is from another planet. Could this have been some deep seeded and early cynicism within myself that we on earth were not capable of saving mankind from itself?

 

It is entirely possible, for my attitude has not changed.

 

Despite the numerous times in history when Jews and Christians have come together to combat evil, we are now more than ever before at odds. Evidence of the success of such an alliance exists at the Garden of the Righteous at Yad Vashem (Jerusalem, Israel), for the many gentiles who saved Jews during World War II.

 

It is a fact that although many Christians have more openly and furtively supported Israel in the past ten years, there remains no alliance that is forged strong enough to combat the significant threat we face.

 

Sadly in a world that now allows murder and genocide to reign supreme, the voices raised to speak out against these atrocities are few.

 

When Christians were facing wholesale extinction recently in Iraq and in numerous other places throughout the continent, not even Christians stood and called for war against this evil.

 

The Pope, the world’s most prominent and well-funded religious leader, was silent until recently when he condemned the killings.  But words are not actions.

 

Of course I am not saying speaking out is not a good first start, but it does little to stop the kidnappings, beheadings and heinous crimes being perpetrated hourly against Christians.

 

With the creation of the modern Jewish State of Israel in 1948, Jews became protected. They were no longer a people wandering and visiting among nations. The strength and resolve of Israel has been a blanket of safety for Jewish people, and all cultures and religions likewise maintain a net of safety and freedom while living in Israel.

 

However the world is now facing its greatest threat. A holy war is raging and few acknowledge its existence. This Neville Chamberlain mentality has led to terrorism poisoning the fabric of the world and like a cancer, killing the healthy cells.

 

So what is the chemotherapy necessary to overcome this deadly virus, and has it metastasized too far to be eradicated?

 

The response to evil by world leaders has been so mediocre it is barely audible through the noise of death and destruction raging and killing across the world. So tepid are the waters of discontent, it is difficult to discern them at all.

 

So what can be done?

 

Many things, but they must be done aggressively and immediately if the poison is to be eliminated from the human spirit.

 

First, Jews and Christians must put their differences aside and realize they face a common enemy. I liken it to earth being attacked by aliens. We have all now become members of one team, like it or not.

 

Whatever petty quarrels exist between Jews and Christians are far less important than stopping the murders of children.

 

However, this alliance cannot solidify unless Christians also acknowledge the bad blood amongst themselves.  The Christian world is as divisive as the Sunni and Shia sects in Islam. There is no ability to join together and unite against a common enemy when they see other Christians as enemies.

 

Then the Muslims must also speak out in a louder voice.

 

Meetings between Israel and the Saudis filled me with a renewed sense of hope. At last I believed the leaders of Arabia have seen the light and the wisdom of putting hatred aside to battle a common evil.  This excitement was short lived however when I realized Saudi schoolbooks and policies still preach hatred and condemnation of Jews.

 

This outward façade of working together, of joining in battle, is far too weak to sustain any strength of resolve.

 

Ancient hatreds are powerful and embedded deeply in the psyche of a nation and cannot mend overnight, especially when they are still perpetrated among the masses. Only by removing all emotion can we hope to succeed and save ourselves.

 

Teaching children to hate and kill Jews will not build a united army against a common enemy. Although the only hope for the world is to overcome hatred and separatism, no one has yet been able to cut it out of the body.

 

Even in the United States where all live freely to practice their religions, race baiters continue to preach hatred where none exists to line their own financial coffers and political agendas.

 

If it happens in the U.S. shall we be surprised it remains a large part of the Middle Eastern mentality?

 

I don’t wish to sound hopeless, so I must believe that walking the walk will follow talking the talk and ultimately become the norm.

 

If it is no longer true that my enemy’s enemy is my friend, we are lost.

 

We must join together, for whatever commonalities we can conjure, to battle this new evil before it overtakes the world and destroys humanity.

 

Jews and Christians more than any other religions share much in common. This is the time for them to solidify their efforts to battle for good in an evil world.

 

If not now, when? After we have all been eradicated and the last voice of reason croaks out a regret from his deathbed? “We should have done more together…we were fools to put petty differences ahead of humankind…” cough – cough – cough and silence.

I am a Neoconservative Christian Right blogger. I also spend a significant amount of time of exposing theopolitical Islam.

1 thought on “If Not Now … When?”

  1. “If it is no longer true that my enemy’s enemy is my friend, we are lost.” ” my enemy’s enemy is my friend” fails the most elementary logic tests. It was never true. Arabs have a saying: “Me against my brother, us against our father, us against our cousin, us against a stranger, us against a Jew.” Shi’ia and Sunni hate each other’s existence but will join forces against Jews and Christians. We have no allies among the Syrian rebel forces. Equal and inferior relationships between Believers and Kuiffar are explicitly forbidden in multiple ayat.

    Every damned Muslim on the face of the earth is our existential enemy, no exceptions. If we can not get that clarified, we can not survive as free people.

    Jew & Gentile, Atheist & Agnostic, monotheist & pagan must recognize the fact that every damned Muslim on the face of the earth is our existential enemy; regardless of our religious and political rivalries, whether we be Capitalist, Commumist, Fascist or Socialist Islam is the common foe.

    We must set aside petty differences and concentrate on the fact that every damned Muslim wheresoever dispersed over the face of the earth deems us the enemy of Allah, therefore his enemy to be killed if not converted. No exceptions.

    Exactly what Goddamn part of “fight them until”, “fight those who… until” & “fight those of the disbelievers nearest you” is impossible to comprehend? What part of “the caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians” and “The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslims” do you not understand?? Is there some element of “I am commanded to fight with the people until they testify that Only Allah has the right to be worshipped” that you can not figure out??? Is there some arcane and esoteric element in “disbelief is an evil which must be removed from the world by death or Islam” that eludes you???? What part of “Destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels although they be not the first aggressors” is too complex to understand?

    “Jihad is ordained for you”: its the law, mandatory, not optional. “Fight them until”: its offensive; aggressive, not defensive. Muslims are commanded to aggress against anyone who rejects Islam, to subjugate people with scriptural religions and kill pagans. They are threatened with eternal damnation if they refuse and promised eternity in a carnal house if they participate. What will they do if they believe? Will a believer choose to go to Hell?

    The rulers of Iran are Twelvers; they believe that the chaos of Armageddon will bring the return of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi, who will team up with their version of Jesus Christ to kill the remaining Jews & Christians and conquer the entire world. When they get the BOMB they will use it. If we do not nuke them off the face of the earth first, they will hold us to nuclear blackmail if not immediate destruction.

    The rulers of Pakistan are slightly more pragmatic, awaiting the day when they achieve first strike capability and superiority. But the less pragmatic, more dogmatic rebel forces who will soon conquer them are not so reluctant to launch. There is a book I want you to read, particularly pages 58…60. Download it here:

    http://wolfpangloss.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/malik-quranic-concept-of-war.pdf#page=50

    That book is a Pakistani Army strategy manual. It outlines the relevant ayat and ahadith. It tells you what they are up to. The link will expose page 60 with the key to victory.

    I quoted some phrases from Islam’s canon. To see them in the wild, read the Koran, Sahih Bukhari, Reliance of the Traveller and Hedaya. To see the full quotes with links to source texts, read these compiled blog posts which you are welcome to embed in your own blog posts.

    Islam’s Mercenary Mission displays and links to the numerous ayat & ahadith which prove beyond any shadow of reasonable doubt that the purpose of Islam was Moe’s personal emolument through pillage and extortion.

    What’s Wrong With Islam & Muslims? displays and links to the numerous ayat, ahadith & fiqh which prove beyond any shadow of reasonable doubt that the method of Islam is martial.

    It is claimed that there is no justification in Islam for terrorism. Find out the terrible truth here, with full quotes from and links to Koran, hadith, Sira & Tafsir.

    The laws of Jihad are included in Reliance, Risala and Hedaya. I quoted Hedaya above. The source pages of those quotes are shown in these files. War must be carried on at all times by some party of the Muslims. We may be attacked without provocation. Jizya is a substitute for destruction. The ostensible and real purposes of Jihad are clarified. Getcher clues here:

    This long file contains the full quote from Reliance o9.8 and a link to the source, which will let you scroll to 9.9. Note that the links to Crusaders Armory are broken by a domain change from .co.cc to .tk.

    Bottom line: given the lack of political will to nuke Islam off the face of the planet, Destruction of Iman is the only possible solution. We must induce mass apostasy. If you have a blog or web page not hosted by Blogger, then embed this trailer for “Innocence of Muslims”.

    The validity of the conceptual content of the video is documented here:

    http://islamexposed.blogspot.com/2012/09/innocence-of-muslims-true-or-false-you.html

    Islam hinges on the character, morals & veracity of one man : Kauthar, who gave himself the title of ” the honored one”; Muhammad. Moe the baby F’er! Imran Firasat dramatized the story with an animation. I documented its veracity. Watch it and read the details here:

    http://islamexposed.blogspot.com/2014/07/muhammad-and-aisha-prophetic-pedophillia.html

    Moe was a rapist. He attacked people on false pretexts, killed the men, raping and enslaving their widows and children. Doubt me? Read the multiple ahadith which tell the story.

    http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/bukhari/005.059.512.html
    http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/bukhari/004.052.143.html

    To discover the terrible truth about the torture death of Safiya’s husband, read Tabari, if memory serves, the story is told in Volume VIII.

    Moe was an extortioner, dictating and dispatching extortion letters to his intended victims. Ibn Sa’d included many of them in his sira. This one is exemplary in its explicit statement of intent.

    http://www.soebratie.nl/religie/hadith/IbnSad.html#01.2.73.3

    Moe was demon possessed; Allah is Satan. Doubt me? Don’t ‘cuz I have the evidence to prove it. Read it all here: http://islamexposed.blogspot.com/2014/11/islam-is-demonic.html

    Far from being the greatest and best of men, Moe was an Arrogant AssWhole! Who should be married to Mary, Mother of Jesus, in Paradise? None but Moe!! The story is in Hayat ul-Qulub, Vol. 2. When Khadija was on her deathbed, Moe told her to bear greetings to his wives in paradise on arrival. Mary was one of them.

    Put the fatal facts in front of Muslims. Rub their snouts in those facts. Cause the Sira to be dramatized in a full length feature documentary and distributed globally. At least two screen plays have been written, ready for production. Get it done!!!
