Human Efforts to Save Humanity – God’s Plan to Save Humanity


Enterprise - 100 YR Starship Warp Drive 2

I DVR-ed a National Geographic Documentary entitled “Evacuate Earth” and managed to finish watching yesterday. I believe the Documentary is about a year old being made in 2012. The scenario is: What will Earth’s human beings do if scientists detect a neutron star on a collision course to our little blue planet estimating its arrival to be about 80 years?

 

The reality is there a number of cosmic occurrences that might threaten life on planet earth. Some examples are the existence of large comets and asteroids, black hole formations, our Sun dying and probably other scenarios I can’t think of at the moment including a collision course with a neutron star. I found a concise description of a neutron star and its destructive force at Moon Project:

 

… Formed by the gravitational collapse of a massive star during a supernova, neutron stars are made almost entirely of neutrons and have a density 500,000 times greater than that of the Earth, all packed into a sphere with a diameter no larger than Brooklyn, New York. The density of such an object is roughly the equivalent of the entire human population crushed down to the size of a sugar cube! Like any star, neutron stars are moving against a backdrop of other cosmic objects and can be detected and tracked here on Earth, So what if we did detect one that was heading straight for us? Would there be anything we could do to divert or destroy it? The short answer?

 

No.

 

We can predict how long it will take to reach us and how close it will need to get for its effects to start to be felt but once we know those things, then what? Lets (sic) say we’ve found one that will reach us in 100 years, that means the countdown has begun and we need to start thinking about the logistics of moving 7 billion people from one planet to another. There wont (sic) be time to double-check and triple check that the conditions are perfect on a rocket that has never been designed before using current technology with people who don’t have the best reputation for getting on. Well, good luck to any one (sic) who thinks they can make that happen.

 

… (Taxi for Humanity: Where could we go and how would we get there when our time on Earth is up? By R. J. Morwood; Moon Project; 4/3/13 1:25 PM)

 

This is probably why National Geographic chose the neutron star scenario for their documentary. Such a collision with Earth would result in the utter destruction of the planet. There is only one possibility for the human race to continue to exist. Existence would depend on evacuating the Earth.

 

I was so fascinated by the NatGeo Documentary, it went through nearly 80 years of construction of this huge space ship built piece by piece by launching the parts in increments as they were made globally. They counted down to just before the neutron star obliterated the Earth. In the Documentary they showed it was possible to view the neutron star bringing Earth’s demise fracturing the planet into pieces in either disintegration or producing an outer space debris belt.

 

Imagine that drama from the space ship! The passengers are already aware that the Earth’s billions died horribly prior to the planet fragmentation. Add to that those billions of dead that undoubtedly included family and friends then they viewed the blue ball – their ancestral home – disappear into nothingness. That is a sad drama.

 

At the end of this post I will post the Youtube version of the entire Documentary of Evacuate Earth. But until some things caught my imagination. Principle of which is the selection process of the minimal minority to be saved dooming the majority billions to a death sentence of nature. The next thought was also very important to me because those thoughts deal with my faith as a Bible believing Christian. Let’s look at the sad near science fiction scenario of a neutron star causing a global effort to save enough of the human race to allow it to perpetuate – somewhere. Then I’ll touch on my Bible faith and a God-breathed scenario.

 

There are many of us bloggers that see nefarious happenings politically that points to a Left Wing conspiracy to control a New World Order and/or an Islamist Caliphate World Order by Islamic imperialists. I use the “and/or” because there might be a little disagreement about NWO scenario is preeminent or if the Leftists and Islamists are feeding off of each other to destroy the present global order and then the Leftists and Islamists going toe-to-toe on a bloody genocidal scale for victory.

 

So, what is the effect on these Conspiracy Theories if it is proven a neutron star is what will transform humanity rather than theological/political ideology? My guess is that Muslims devoted to the Quran will put their trust with their demon-deity (yeah I know Leftist Multiculturalists and Muslim Apologists are thinking bigotry rather than comprehending that Bible believers believe Christ is the ONLY WAY to God) Allah to show the neutron star will initiate the global Caliphate age against the kafir (aka infidel). My next guess is that secularist scientists aligned with Leftists will begin a plan build something and anything to allow selected human beings to get out of Dodge before the Earth’s High Noon.

 

The Muslims might have the money, but the scientific community will have the support of government money, natural resources and great minds used to teaming up for solutions. Not that Muslims don’t have great minds. After all AQ Khan developed nuclear weapons for Pakistan and has leaked nuke info to violent prone Muslim rogue nations. In this modern age most Muslim great minds living in Islamic dominated nations think more about Islamic theopolitical philosophy and weaponization. This is not exactly a team playing combination to save Earth’s brightest and fittest to begin survival and re-population of the human race on an Earth-like planet.

 

It is my opinion, all political correctness aside, it will be the Western nations, prominent scientists of Israel and Asians representing China, Japan, South Korea and India that will decide the survival of the human race. This leads to another conundrum. Those that select the people to be saved will likely be the scientific community, political powerhouses that are influential on government purse strings and the more intelligent of the rich and famous. There is one thing I can guarantee about such an elitist selection committee the common man that is the backbone of successful economies will not be selected.

 

This will leave seven or so billion people among divided national borders left to choose how they will deal with such a transition. You do realize the scenario at this point is a Leftist utopian’s dream concerning depopulation to save humanity. Instead of systematically euthanizing hundreds of millions of people to make feeding the people easier and to be easier on planet Earth’s ecosystem, simply leave billions of people behind to die at the hands of a neutron star.

 

Most people have a natural survival instinct even if they don’t resources. That is why a lot of bloggers believe if an economic collapse occurs followed political chaos in nation-states that every-man-for-himself rioting and violence will be the new lawless social structure. If political chaos predictors are accurate about an economic collapse scenario, just think how things could turn ugly when the global population realizes that there is an Evacuate Earth plan that does not include the general population. I suspect attempts to thwart government control will turn into civil strife, civil war or just downright revolution to change the power structure with no actual end-game in mind if there is success in revolting against current regimes.

 

The reality is that the political regimes in control will have the military power to suppress and/or contain revolutionary civil strife to territorial areas away from the construction from whence the components for a starship are being built then sent to outer space for assembly. I am willing to bet the power of united elites will hesitate to use armed extreme prejudice to protect the escape plan. Which brings me to another wondering thought. I wonder when the military rank and file will realize that most of them will not be boarding a completely assembled starship to escape death from a neutron star.

 

This is when a number of lower rank officers will organize against the ruling elites to achieve an inclusion impossibility. I say impossible because this not Noah’s Ark created by the supernatural hand of God. This is a large space Ark that will only so-much room to take what is need to survive an interstellar trip with the uncertain hope of finding a planet to colonize. Unless national military personnel are willing to make a sacrifice for the greater good, I have serious doubts an interstellar spaceship Ark will find completion. The result: the end and extinction of the human race with nothing left to indicate intelligent life existed in portion of the unfathomable cosmos.

 

And yet with all the scenario guessing the U.S. via the route of government agencies are spending money to develop technology for interstellar travel. America’s most famous super-secret agency – Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) – has been working with NASA in a 100 year program to study and implement space travel.

 

We exist to make the capability of human travel beyond our solar system a reality within the next 100 years. We unreservedly dedicate ourselves to identifying and pushing the radical leaps in knowledge and technology needed to achieve interstellar flight, while pioneering and transforming breakthrough applications that enhance the quality of life for all on Earth. We actively seek to include the broadest swath of people and human experience in understanding, shaping and implementing this global aspiration.

 

 

When we explore space, we garner the greatest benefits here at home. The challenge of traveling to another star system could generate transformative activities, knowledge, and technologies that would dramatically benefit every nation on Earth in the near term and years to come.

 

 

Travel to the stars will require: the development of revolutionary non-chemical technologies to generate, harness, control and store enormous quantities of energy safely; radical advancements in closed-loop life-support systems and sustainable habitats; new insights into human development, health, behavior and training; quantum leaps in agriculture, communication and handling massive data sets; advances in robotics, automation, intelligent systems, and manufacturing techniques; as well as deeper, robust understanding and innovative approaches to social structures, education, economics and finance, legal frameworks, politics and international collaboration. READ ENTIRETY (take the NEXT GIANT LEAP FORWARD; 100 Year Starship)

 

The BBC has an article about DARPA’s 100 Year Starship program and a principle formulator of the program Dr. Jack Sarfatti:

 

Stellar pipedream?

 

But the 100YSS is not a fringe activity started by a bunch of dreamers. It has the backing of two high-profile US agencies – the space agency Nasa and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), the US military agency that helped create the internet and satellite-based navigation. Darpa has a track record for these kinds of seemingly impossible technologies: in recent years it has sponsored attempts to develop a hypersonic aircraft and driverless cars.

 

But even those might pale next to the goal of sending a manned spaceship to the stars. And the agency’s willingness to embrace unconventional ideas and people – like Sarfatti – means the project divides opinion. For its backers it is a visionary blueprint for interstellar travel. For the naysayers, it is a crackpot idea with no hope of even getting off the ground.

 

For those who might consider a starship something of a pipedream, David Neyland, the head of the Darpa office in charge of the 100YSS, points to the agency’s ability to spur innovation in unexpected areas, an ability that has proven critical to its success.The iPhone in your pocket is powered by cellular radio technology that came out of communications research Darpa did back in the 70s and 80s,” says Neyland. “So it is that unintended consequence of technology research that we are hoping to inspire.” READ ENTIRETY (100 Year Starship: An interstellar leap for mankind? By Sharon Weinberger; BBC – FUTURE; 3/22/12)

 

Although scenario of Earth’s destruction by NatGeo will probably not happen with a pleasant end for humanity, the NatGeo prediction of interstellar travel is actually plausible bringing science fiction into the realm of science fact. This Dr. Sarfatti is actually exploring physics concepts of a Star Trek-like warp drive, once believed outside the realm of reality by serious physicist theorists. The 100 Year Starship project even has the first female astronaut in spaceMae Jemison Wikipedia/NASA heading the project – Mae Jemison. There is another reason that I believe the NatGeo Evacuate Earth scenario will not occur.

 

Here’s the thing. I have faith in the God of the Holy Bible. God’s plan is to save all humanity from the fate of Satan to be contained to the Lake of Fire in Hell for eternity. The difference between the Bible and Quran is that the Bible gives humanity opportunity after opportunity to make a free choice to be Redeemed by the Redemptive act of Jesus Christ on the Cross and the Lord’s bodily Resurrection from the dead as the glorified fully human and fully God. Allah’s plan is to send some supernatural being along with a fake Christ to militarily force humanity in the present to time to convert to Islam or die.

 

The God of the Bible plan is that God Himself as the Second Person of the Trinity will lead both Angelic armies and the armies of the Believers in Christ to defeat the nations following the human Anti-Christ, the human False Prophet and the Beast under the direction of Satan. Even in defeat the nations will have a chance to call Jesus Lord and in the thousand year reign of Christ. At the end of the Thousand Years humanity will have its last chance to be with God or be with Satan just released from Hell’s chains to tempt humanity one last time. After which all Fallen Angels, all Satan loving humans and Satan will be sentenced to the Lake of Fire after the Last Judgment. (Read Revelation 20)

 

Is there a threat to the existence of the Earth Biblically? The answer is ‘yes.’ It is a ‘yes’ even though humanity survives the Earth’s destruction. New Heaven - New Earth

 

All Things Made New

 

21 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John,[a] saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

 

5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me,[b] “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

 

6 And He said to me, “It is done![c] I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things,[d] and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving,[e]abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

 

The New JerusalemNew Jerusalem - Pat Wagner

 

9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me[f] and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g] 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h]Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

 

21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

 

The Glory of the New Jerusalem

 

22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,[a] for the glory[b] of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved[c] shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.[d] 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.[e] 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes[f] an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. (Revelation 21: 1-11; 21-27 NKJV)

 

And just as an addendum to all those that do not believe Jesus Christ – fully man and fully God simultaneously – is the Son of God that Resurrected after He was Crucified by sinful men to save ALL sinful men who choose life in Christ Jesus the Deliverer and Savior by believing the Good News rather than the lying influence of Satan.King Jesus Holding Hour Glass Measuring Time Left

 

The Time Is Near

 

6 Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the holy[a] prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.

 

7 “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”

 

8 Now I, John, saw and heard[b] these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.

 

9 Then he said to me, “See that you do not do that. For[c] I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” 10 And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous[d] still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”

 

Jesus Testifies to the Churches

 

12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”[e]

 

14 Blessed are those who do His commandments,[f] that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But[g] outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

 

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

 

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

 

A Warning

 

18 For[h] I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add[i] to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away[j] his part from the Book[k] of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22: 6-19 NKJV)

Deciphering Iranian decision making and strategy today


Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (4th R) stands with Army commander General Ataollah Salehi (3rd R), Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Hassan Firouzabadi (4th L), Revolutionary Guards commander Mohammad Ali Jafari (3rd L) and Defence Minister Ahmad Vahidi (2nd L) during a graduating ceremony for Iran's army landforce academy in Tehran November 10, 2011.

Iran should be a nation everyone should keep their mind on. The next global conflict will likely emerge either because direct military between Iran and Israel or indirect Iranian Middle Eastern meddling exporting its Shi’ite revolution to the Shi’ites outside of Iran which would include aiding Sunni Islamists in acts of terrorism against Israel and the USA.

 

Michael Rubin has written a lengthy article that could be expanded into a book analyzing Iran’s very UnWestern political system and it Foreign Policy related to that political system. Iran’s political system is tied to radical Shi’ite ideology which includes the concept that the hidden 12th Imam will appear to cement the old Khomeini Revolution into a global manifestation of Shia Islam.

 

I am cross posting Rubin’s article at SlantRight 2.0 or you can read it directly from the American Enterprise Institute (AEI).

Euro Collapse and the New World Order


Euro-EU

 

John R. Houk

December 5, 2011

 

I always love a good Conspiracy Theory read. The best Conspiracy Theories are those that utilize actual facts rather than speculated assertions or just outright fiction. One such Conspiracy Theory is based on actual Socio-Political Theory of the collapse of the Eurozone’s Euro currency. Academics, Economists, Politicians, Globalists and Believers in National Sovereignty have become extremely concerned of the stability of the Euro. American Conservatives know the reason for Euro problems is because of the Socialist-Democratic-Entitlement society the European Union has developed over the years of the elitist dream of the One European Government often equated as the United States of Europe. The fine line between Conspiracy Theory and Political Theory is the reality of predicted outcomes. The outcome will have history paint the picture of how a theory is labeled.

 

I found a post by Danny Jeffrey of Freedom Rings 1776. Jeffrey is convinced the Euro will come to an end then delves into the reasons for the unraveling as an indictment against Globalism and moving toward a New World Order.

 

The Conspiracy Theory worst case scenario of a Euro collapse runs something like social unrest will overtake Europe. To restore order some kind of centralized authority must step in to return social order. There are three big powers in the EU of which two are members of the European Central Bank (ECB) which is somewhat like America’s Federal Reserve. Those big three are the United Kingdom, France and Germany. Social unrest will separate the UK out of a continental European power struggle. This leaves France and Germany. Perhaps France and Germany will somehow share power in restoring order to Europe. My Conspiracy Theory guess is France and Germany will eventually carve out economic zones roughly pertaining to Western Europe and Eastern Europe. It is likely Russia have something to say about that economic influence in Eastern Europe. For a short while France, Germany and Russia will be a triumvirate of economic stability in Europe. Eventually Russian paranoia and German National Interests will clash. France will either join Germany against Russia or France will protect its National Interests by courting a UK alliance. At this point this sounds like old European distrust and jealousies coming back to haunt Europe all because of the collapse of the Eurozone. Then there is one more element that will probably realign old European squabbles into yet another global affair.

 

That element is the rise of purist Radical Islam that is slowly spreading through what the West has perceived as Moderate Islam. I have no prediction on how Islam will play out in global chaos or war but I know it won’t be good. Islam might be the excuse global elites utilize to use the United Nations mechanisms set up by Agenda 21 to begin a New World Order under Leftist ideology to control individuals on a global basis. OR someone wakes up enough to be an influence to confront Islam with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

 

That wake-up call of course would be American voters giving the Left the boot and restore Constitutional Original Intent people to govern via the Branches of Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Unless America realizes the foundation of our Founding Fathers that made America exceptional, then the world is doomed to a conflict between an Agenda 21 and Islam with Communist China joining in on the side that best benefits the Chinese National Interests.

 

Now how is that for a Conspiracy Theory, eh?

 

Political Theory is not quite as dramatic as Conspiracy Theory. If the Euro collapses, conventional wisdom would be that the governments of the EU will turn to France and Germany to reform who can sit on the Board of Directors of the ECB meaning nations that can’t pay their bills will longer be a part of the economic process of the Eurozone. Those nations given the boot from the Board of Directors of the ECB will have to decide whether to return to a national currency or submit their economies to the banking policies of a reformed ECB. China, India and America thus will have a stake in backing up a reformed ECB to stabilize the global economy. The result: The world slides into a global chaos SLOWER than my Conspiracy Theory scenario or years more of a status quo globalist economy under current National Sovereignty situation of the world’s nations with America trying to keep its primary status as the world’s Capitalist profit/loss market economy.

Islamic Caliphate is Coalescing


Islamophobic & Proud

John R. Houk

© March 1, 2011

 

I always get in trouble for this thought: Islam is evil. This three word thought elicits vulgar comments from Muslims and outrage from Left Wing multiculturalists with the accusation of Islamophobe meant as an epithet and not a compliment. In honesty I have often given Muslims devoted to a theological principle of worship with the desire to better oneself via their monotheistic deity the benefit of the doubt. The benefit is a faith of inner peace. The doubt is Islam is just as much political as it is theological. This means there is a direct link between the governing authority and a focus on faith in the religion of Islam.

 

In my Christian faith, residing in America as well as being a Conservative, I am a huge believer of religion being an influence on governing the State, BUT NOT the State having any influence on any religion. The American Left has warped 20th century Constitutional thought into Judicial Activism believing in the propagandized myth of Separation of Church and State. This means that religion must not have any influence in the affairs of governing as well as the government not having any influence in religious practice. The problem for America with the Leftist vision of religion and State is that the moral foundations of our past are being eroded by the Leftist replacement with Secular Humanism which emphasizes Moral Relativity. Moral Relativity means the values of society are purely measurable by what humanity defines as moral. When humanity defines morality there is no constant standard. Biblical Morality is a constant standard based on the Word of God. The lack of a constant standard by its nature means there is little restraint on the proclivity of human nature to act selfishly. Selfishness in human nature left unchecked leads to an ever evolving descent toward wickedness.

 

Today in the name of First Amendment Free Speech there is a pervasiveness of pornography; family disunity via divorce; children are disrespectful of authority to the point of social dysfunction that leads to violence in schools, pervasive teen drug use, despicably abhorrent bullying that incites violent retribution or suicide; theft is so prevalent that one is thought a fool if they don’t loc their doors and more.   

 

The absence of a distinctive difference between temporal governing and religious practice in Islam means that the governing authority must comply with Islamic Law and that the governing authority has the duty to enforce society to follow Islamic Law. This leads to a concept of Islamic Supremacism in which Muslim and non-Muslims have severely curtailed civil rights. For the devoted Muslim this may not be bad news; however for the more secular minded Muslim and the non-Muslim civil rights and civil liberty is extremely hampered which is REAL bad news for a person who violates the governing principles of Sharia Law.

 

It is the theopolitical nature of Islam that makes Islam evil. This is especially so in America in which our nation’s whole foundation is based on the Declaration of Independence which emphasizes the concepts of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. America’s Constitution insures explicitly various rights of Liberty and Freedom which are unalienable. From the Founding Father perspective these unalienable rights are created in humanity by God Almighty Himself. In America life is about choice that does not break the law. In Islam life is about submission to Allah and the deity’s prophet Mohammed.

 

American representative democracy and Islamic culture are as divergent as night and day. Islam can take no other view other than the American way of life is evil. The Liberty implicit in American culture has no choice but to view Islamic culture as evil. The unfortunate circumstance in America is that American Liberty allows Leftist doctrine and Islamic theopolitical thought to be freely expressed even if it eradicates American Liberty. 

 

To switch gears a bit allow me to express some concerns that is going on in the Muslim Maghreb and Middle East.

 

The little Muslim nation of Tunisia exploded into a grassroots move to end the government of their dictator. This move in Tunisia spread through the Muslim world as a wild fire. The irony is the apparent Muslim populist movement is very reminiscent of the Bush Doctrine Neoconservative idea that democracy is an infectious way to live if given the opportunity to attach to any nation in the world. After Iraq and Afghanistan began to regard American invasions as an occupation rather than as a deliverance from despotism, the Bush Doctrine took a major dent. Even Neoconservatives began to be disillusioned with democratic nation building. We Neocons believed that the democratization of Germany and Japan after WWII could be a repeated experiment on any form of despotism. The thing is Germany is from the Western tradition. Although Japan has no roots in Western influence, if one examines Japanese history there are surprising similarities between Japan’s feudal past and Europe’s feudal past. It could be that the feudalism of Japan was a precursor making Japan pliable to adapt Western style democratic institutions.

 

Being Americans, Bush Agenda supporters did not take into consideration that theopolitical Islam would trump civil rights and liberty. Muslim lands have had the curse of a stagnant culture stuck in their successes of the Middle Ages. Also Muslim lands have had the blessing of intense indoctrination of theopolitical Islamic Sharia Law that has made Islam entrenched in the minds of its adherents. The cultural path of Islamic indoctrination enabled each generation of a conquered people to be more and more devoted to Islam. This mind entrenchment thwarts all non-Islamic political ideologies and thwarts the success of an alternative religion from effectively competing with Islam. Alternative political ideologies and alternative religions are not only dealt with harshly by Muslim clerics, but entrenched minds of the populace will take it upon themselves also to deal harshly with alternative concepts.

 

The indoctrinated entrenchment of the Muslim mind makes it a group of people that have a love affair with the concept of a global Caliphate. One might tell you that a Caliph would have the same significance as the Roman Catholic Pope. The Pope today is considered by Catholic adherents as the head of the Church on earth. Today that is translated as the spiritual head of the Church. An Islamic Caliph has more than spiritual attributes. In Islam the Caliph represents a successor to Mohammed. A Caliph must carry out the directives of the Quran, Hadith and Sira. These directives go beyond a concept of a spiritual leader keeping the Ummah (Global Community of Muslims) on the spiritual path of Allah as espoused by the prophet Mohammed.

 

Mohammed made it clear that it is the duty of Muslims to bring Islam to the whole earth. If Islam is rejected then it is the duty of the Muslim conquerors to create conditions that makes the choice of converting to Islam easier. Those conditions include brutal temporal conquest, rejecters of Islam monotheists may choose to retain their faith BUT ONLY if there is an agreement to follow Sharia Law, polytheistic rejecters of Islam do not receive a choice of a dehumanized Sharia life or if the combined rejection of Islam and Sharia is the choice then choice as far as the Quran, Hadith and Sira is concerned is to advocate death.  Polytheistic rejecters of Islam were cut no slack by historical Caliphs of spiritual/temporal power. The polytheists’ choice was simpler: Convert to Islam or die.

 

Islam ran into a snag of convert or die in the conquest of India. The polytheistic Hindu population was so huge even in the 7th and 8th century AD that somebody realized that if all the Hindu rejecters of Islam were slaughtered then there would be nobody left to pay tribute called jizya. Still the slaughter and enslavement of the Indian Subcontinent was an immense genocide of the most heinous brutality of conquest to that date in history. After a jizya system was eventually set up for Hindus, Muslim rulers still felt obligated to please Allah every so often to terminate groups of Hindus’ lives by the will of Allah.  

 

This picture of the past is important in this present day.

 

I foresee a great danger to Western Civilization with the grassroots Muslim uprisings across the Maghreb and the Middle East. Regardless of what you hear about a comparison of grassroots and democracy having a chance in these Muslim lands elucidating the hope that Western democracy will now finally have its opportunity, do not believe it. Islamic theopolitical doctrine and Western concepts of Freedom and Liberty simple are not compatible.

 

If these Muslim grassroots uprisings are successful I assure you their Islamic indoctrinated mind will eventually look to the Quran, Hadith and Sira for direction in a united Ummah. What do you think a united Ummah entails? A united Ummah would demand a Caliphate. What has been the objective the Muslim Brotherhood (and offshoots), Wahhabis, Salafists, Deobandis (SA Here) and the like including al Qaeda sympathizers? That objective is a reformist return to the purity of Mohammed and the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs which is the establishment of a Caliphate to once again move to force the issue of converting to Islam.

 

Check out these thoughts from Andrew C. McCarthy on the grassroots uprisings and the potential of a Caliphate:

 

The caliphate is an institution of imperial Islamic rule under sharia, Muslim law. Not content with empire, Islam anticipates global hegemony. Indeed, mainstream Islamic ideology declares that such hegemony is inevitable, holding to that belief every bit as sincerely as the End of History crowd holds to its conviction that its values are everyone’s values (and the Muslims are only slightly less willing to brook dissent). For Muslims, the failure of Allah’s creation to submit to the system He has prescribed is a blasphemy that cannot stand.   

 

 

As I recounted in The Grand Jihad, Churchill’s views were not eccentric. A modern scholar of Islam, Andrew Bostom, recalls the insights of C. Snouck Hurgronje, among the world’s leading scholars of Islam during World War I. In 1916, even in the dark hours of Ottoman defeat, he marveled at the grip the concept of Islamic hegemony continued to hold on the Muslim masses:

 

It would be a gross mistake to imagine that the idea of universal conquest may be considered as obliterated. . . . The canonists and the vulgar still live in the illusion of the days of Islam’s greatness. The legists continue to ground their appreciation of every actual political condition on the law of the holy war, which war ought never be allowed to cease entirely until all mankind is reduced to the authority of Islam — the heathen by conversion, the adherents of acknowledged Scripture [i.e., Jews and Christians] by submission.

 

Muslims, of course, understood the implausibility of achieving such dominance in the near term. Still, Hurgronje elaborated, the faithful were “comforted and encouraged by the recollection of the lengthy period of humiliation that the Prophet himself had to suffer before Allah bestowed victory upon his arms.” So even as the caliphate lay in ruins, the conviction that it would rise again remained a “fascinating influence” and “a central point of union against the unfaithful.”

 

Today, the OIC is Islam’s central point of union against the unfaithful. Those who insist that the 1,400-year-old dividing line between Muslims and non-Muslims is ephemeral, that all we need is a little more understanding of how alike we all really are, would do well to consider the OIC’s Cairo Declaration of 1990. It is the ummah’s “Declaration of Human Rights in Islam,” proclaimed precisely because Islamic states reject the 1948 Declaration of Human Rights promulgated by the United Nations under the guidance of progressives in the United States and the West. That is, the leaders of the Muslim world are adamant that Western principles are not universal.

 

They are quite right about that. The Cairo Declaration boasts that Allah has made the Islamic ummah “the best community . . . which gave humanity a universal and well-balanced civilization.” It is the “historical role” of the ummah to “civilize” the rest of the world — not the other way around. (The OIC and the Caliphate; Andrew C. McCarthy; National Review; February 26, 2011 4:00 A.M.)

 

“OIC” is the abbreviation for Organization of the Islamic Conference. It is crystal clear that the OIC is the foundation for the dreams of a global Caliphate. There will be a galvanizing of Islamic instruments beginning to call for the return of Islamic purity. Those instruments can be seen in Hasan al-Banna’s founding of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in the 1920’s and a Muslim Sheik’s embracement of a little known group in the Arabian Peninsula named by the West after Muhammad bin Abd al Wahhab (1701 – 1791). Hence there is term Wahhabism. I understand Wahhabis do not necessarily appreciate the appellation and prefer the term Salafism. The MB and Wahhabism were both puritanical yet they were distinct. Nasser’s crackdown on the MB in the 1960s led much of their group to flee. The Saudi King offered refuge. At this point the MB and Wahhabism seemed to have a mutual infusion. This is important because the MB vision has been a Pan-Arab move toward a Caliphate. Wahhabism was pretty much confined to the Arabian Peninsula focusing on a return to the purist Islam of Mohammed’s days.

 

The MB-Wahhabi infusion brought a Pan-Arab Caliphate vision to nation that then began to finance the spread of Salafist theopolitical ideology in the Muslim World (dar al-Islam) and to the non-Muslim world (dar al-harb – significantly Western nations).

 

So let’s recap my thoughts a bit.

 

There is an inspired grassroots movement among Muslims in the Maghreb and the Middle East to change despotic governments. The West has viewed this grassroots movement as an opportunity for democratic institutions in the Muslim world. The reality is Islamic Culture and Western Cultural democratic institutions are totally incompatible and cannot coexist successfully. Salafi movements of which the Muslim Brotherhood is the best known in the West (there are others) have the objective of a return to purist Islam and a return of the theopolitical Caliphate. The OIC is plugged into the Muslim Brotherhood in a Pan-Muslim objective as well as extending Muslim influence toward non-Muslim lands. The OIC is as much theological as it is political.

 

All this points to the OIC as being the platform of establishing the Salafist dream of a Caliphate. Multicultural idiots of the West are big on telling their constituents that the West (especially America) is not at war with Islam. Yet Islam across the Sunni-Shia divide has called America the great Satan. This is an indication that Islam is at war with Western principles because America is the embodiment of Western Freedom and Liberty.

 

Please tell me, someone in the West or America is wise enough to prepare for the inevitable coming conflict between the Secular West (with a Judeo-Christian heritage) and the theopolitical agenda of Islam’s move to a Caliphate?
