VIDEO — Geert Wilders: Stand for Freedom!


Geert Wilders

Geert Wilders is one of my Counterjihad heroes in exposing the dark side of Islam’s theopolitical ideology. He leads the Dutch Party for Freedom (Dutch acronym: PVV), a political party in the Netherlands which their Left Wing and Multiculturist politicians fear, hate and loathe. Why? Wilders represents the political stand in Europe that understands that Islam is a religion that will destroy Western Civilization if allowed to enter unrestrained via immigration. Adherents to Islam demand that the host nation they conform and acquiesce to the tenets of Islam which demands a life led under Sharia Law not only for adherents but also that non-Muslim Westerners conform.

 

Wilders understands that the Sharia minded Muslim enclaves that have risen in the Netherlands is a threat to all things Dutch in that society. Unfortunately for Wilders and Dutch nationalists, such thinking spoken out loud have been criminalized not only in the Netherlands but the entire European Union (EU) of nations – incidentally the recent Brexit vote in the United Kingdom (UK).

 

With that intro of Geert Wilders I stumbled upon a Wilders video (about four minutes) courtesy of the Gatestone Institute email alert.

Counter-Jihad Writing is Expose Islam Rather than Hate Muslims


What the West Needs to Know about Islam

John R. Houk

Anders Breivik was recently convicted for his mass murder in Norway. There is no doubt Breivik created his delusional agenda by acting out from Counter-Jihad writers. That is a fair enough analysis. On the other hand it is an unfair conclusion to blame Counter-Jihad writers for Breivik’s mass murder.

 

Counter-Jihad writers do not expose the dark side of Islam to incite hate but rather to incite understanding and caution.

 

Why do non-Muslim Westerners need understanding and caution in relation to Islam?

 

It is Because Islamic Culture and Islamic Sharia Law is not compatible to Western Culture in concepts of Liberty and Freedom. This is especially the case with the United States of America which has Liberty and Freedom encoded in the Constitution’s First Amendment which touches on Religious Freedom, Free Speech, Free Press and the Freedom to Protest and to freely redress grievances to the government.

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

 

So acceptance of Islam by Left Wing Multiculturalists is a path to destroying Western Culture as Muslim demand more and more acceptance of Islamic Supremacism inherent in their holy writings and Sharia Law.

 

Well that is my two-cents. Fjordman has some thoughts which I am cross posting from the Gates of Vienna. I am not going to include the Norwegian language version which can found at the end of the English version of Fjordman’s thoughts.

Western Superiority


Muslim 5th Column America

 

John R. Houk

© March 30, 2012

 

If you do not fear political correctness allow me to put a question to you. But first let me set up the question.

 

Western society is roughly represented by European culture and its influence in North and South America. In the case of the evolution of Liberty and Freedom one can narrow the nations of Western Culture to the ones that have been the most successful in providing a strong representative government that employs some level of liberal (i.e. “liberal” in the classical sense rather than the Socialist/Marxist/Leftist sense) democracy for its citizens. In my estimation this is Western Europe, America and many other nations formerly of the once immense British Empire such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada to name a few. Of these nations I believe I can say that we can narrow this even further to the United Kingdom, America and France. These three nations have made huge contributions to the concepts of modern Liberty. And of course being the American Exceptionalist that I am, I can safely say one nation stand above all others in modern Western culture and that is the United States of America. All of the Western world pays homage to the historical contributions of Greek, Roman and Judeo-Christian influences in developing Liberty.

 

There is the Asian culture that is best represented by India, China and Japan in one way or the other. In modern times India and Japan have adopted many Western institutions of representative government that has blended in with their Asian culture. The Peoples Republic of China (commonly aka Red China or Communist China) has adopted the Western philosophy developed in Germany and Great Britain by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels into the ancient Chinese culture. Chinese Communism is a continuation of Chinese authoritarianism disguised as a peoples’ movement when it is still a top to bottom despotism.

 

Then there is a culture that can attribute its thinking to the theopolitical thinking established by the man known as Mohammed (or Muhammad or other variations). That religious cult is known as Islam. Unlike the West that merged Judeo-Christian principles with Greco-Roman principles, Islam’s Mohammed developed a society of monotheism in which culture is theologically and politically integrated that all society submit to the Allah created by Mohammed that all people must submit to under the guidance of religious-political leaders. Liberty as is known in the West is not comprehended because the whole goal of submission is to comply or die. The closest thing to Liberty in the Islamic world is freedom that does not insult or violate the Quran, Hadith, Sira and Sharia Law.

 

So here is the question: Which is the superior culture – Western or Islamic?

 

Are you brave enough to make an actual informed choice without being blinded by political correctness?

 

Okay, I am not afraid of political correctness. The superior culture is Western culture!

 

As much as you hear an Islamic apologist extol the bliss of the peace of Islam, a walk the news – even the Leftist oriented MSM that is in denial about Islam and peace can’t help but report the horrendous act of violence that occurs today in nations dominated by Islam. Of the MSM tries to sugarcoat Islamic violence by poverty and Western exploitation; however if you think about it that is a lame apologist load of crap. Poverty and exploitation occurred in Latin Americans at the hands of stronger Western nations. Today, do you see Latin Americans rioting in the streets and demanding the death of people that have turned from Christianity to Marxism or to crime? If anything it is Latin American Marxists and Crime Lords that are perpetuating violence in contrast to Judeo-Christian ethics.

 

Simply put – as much as anyone claims that Islam is peace – Islam is violent, murderous and completely lacking in Liberty and Civil Rights.

 

So does Western culture have something to protect? YES!

 

Does Western culture as a people and as nations desire to destroy Muslims to retain their heritage? NO!

 

Does Islamic culture as a people and as nations desire to destroy the people that stand with Western culture? YES!

 

A case in point is the recent burning of Qurans in Afghanistan. Did the coalition military led by America destroy Qurans to intentionally insult Islam and Muslims? You are an idiot if you believe this. The Qurans that were torched were first of all defaced by Islamic terrorists that used the Qurans to pass coded messages while imprisoned. When the Islamic terrorists were caught the Qurans were destroyed in the Islamic prescribed way because it is unholy to write in a Quran.

 

But it was the kafir that burned the Qurans. The Islamic terrorist propaganda spread the hatred and rioting among the populace proceeded and even American trained Afghan soldiers began shooting American soldiers because the Qurans were burnt by kafir. This is a mere example of the violence that erupts in Islamic society when Islam, Mohammed or Muslims feel insulted by non-Muslims. To get your fill of Islamic idiotic violence a good website to visit is TheReligionOfPeace.com.

 

Islam is the enemy of Western culture even if there are Left Wing Multiculturalists that are in denial of this fact. We have a Western culture to protect to protect! Shed off the chains of political correctness in the West and be sure that any part of Islam in the West that works to destroy the West must be dealt with. This is the case even if it goes against the grain of embedded religious tolerance in our minds.

 

David J. Rusin writes about the need for the West to gain pride in our Western Heritage. In regaining Western pride the Islam that is in our culture can be prevented from using our religious tolerance laws against the West to bring down the West.

I Believe a Clash of Civilizations between the West and Islam is Inevitable


Israel Belongs to Jews

John R. Houk

© February 22, 2012

 

Here is an essay by Obadiah Shoher that questions the theme of a Clash of Civilizations causes animosity between cultures that are divergent in what is important. Shoher believes the bloodiest wars of recent history have been wars of inter-homogenous cultures. For example WWI was the battling primarily between the Brits, France, Russians and America versus Germany, Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire. Actually Shoher didn’t choose war and you can see why. The inter-cultural thing was between five European powers that included the Muslim Ottoman Turks. Shoher’s central theme can easily be re-worked though. After all the Ottomans were of a divergent culture that joined two European powers against the initial allies of Britain, France and Russia. The then weak Ottomans had a National Interest thing going in that if Russia prevailed on its front, the next target would be the Ottoman Empire because Russia was considered the religious spokesperson for the Orthodox Church and there were a significant amount of Greek Orthodox Christians residing in Western Turkey at the time of WWI. Not to mention it would be quite the feather in the cap of Russia if Istanbul was retaken and given its original name again; i.e. Constantinople. The Muslims would be kicked out of the Christian built Hagia Sophia that was desecrated and converted into a Mosque by conquering Ottoman Muslims in 1453.

 

Shoher’s primary example of a homogenous culture fighting amongst themselves is WWII. It was a war between Europeans that stretched the globe. Again it may be argued that Japan had an Asian culture that clashed with European culture; however if you examine Japanese history there are amazing similarities of phases that included something comparable to European medievalism and Japan was quicker to modernize their culture than other Asian cultures making Japanese Asian culture competitive with European expertise in industrialization and scientific advancement.

 

The fault I find with Shoher’s hypothesis that a Clash of Civilizations is a non sequitur to wars in his focus on the environment of people rather than that which people believe. The level of passion that people have for what they believe is where the clash occurs.

 

Here are some examples

 

The internecine religious wars of Europe were a clash between the beliefs of Protestantism and Roman Catholicism.

 

Eighteenth century revolutionary wars within the American Colonies clashing with Britain and within France were clashes of New World thinking and Old World European thinking. The former established the American experiment in personal Liberty from the whims of government and the later much bloodier revolution established the evolution of Secularism over Christianity in European governments.

 

WWII like so many wars originating on a European scale was a clash between nations desiring to protect their national sovereignty from Hitler’s Nazi ideology believing that Germanic/Nordic culture was the master race desiring a European empire.

 

The Cold War was a clash between the concept of American Liberty and Capitalism with Soviet godless Communism.

 

Nazi genocide of Jews sealed the deal of a Jewish State that had been promised from 1917 that coalesced in a war of Jewish survival clashing with Islamic Supremacism in 1948.

 

There is a good global argument that European exploitation in nations that desire the rule of law to be based on Sharia Law caused a sense of non-Muslims taking resources from areas that are steeped in Islamic Supremacism. Resource exploitation is bad enough; however in the mind of the Muslim such exploitation extends to insulting the superiority of Islam over non-Muslim beliefs. Initially this European exploitation reawakened a Pan-Arab unity movement to expel European control of Muslim Middle Eastern and Muslim Maghreb (North Africa) areas. The existence of Israel was viewed as part of that European exploitation because in the mind of theopolitical Islam, once Islam has dominated an area it is blasphemy to surrender land to the control of non-Muslims even if that land is a non-threatening sliver of land in comparison to the rest of Muslim world that views itself with an Arab legacy.

 

Early Pan-Arabism was actually secular minded with Sharia Law as the foundation for the rule of law. However, in the early days of Pan-Arabism shortly after WWI and the Ottomans lost control of Muslim people that considered themselves as Arabs, there began a movement to look back on the purity and example of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed. This movement is what we describe as Radical Islam today because of the insistence to follow the dictates of the Quran, Hadith and Sira concerning lifestyle and relations with non-Muslims.

 

The irony for Pan-Arabism is that the constant invasions of independent Israel that resulted in constant losses, the secularist portion became divisive in an Arab unity movement. These constant invasions resulted in the mutual displacement of Arabs in independent Israel and Jews that had lived for centuries in the Muslim Middle East and the Muslim Maghreb. Arabs fled Israel believing the bloodlust of invading Arab armies assumed they would be returning after the Jews were wiped off the earth. Jews did not flee their Middle Eastern and Maghreb homes; rather they were expelled because of the humiliation of tiny Israel beating the snot out of the invading armies. These expelled Jews were forced to leave with the clothes on their back leaving possessions and property behind ala Nazi policy minus the Concentration Camps.

 

Shoher would have us believe that the conflict between Jewish Israel and the surrounding ocean of Muslims is a conflict based on homogeneity. I disagree. Modern Israel has a culture based on the evolution of the European rule of law which in turn is based on the influence of ancient Greece, ancient Rome and Judeo-Christianity. Israel is a secular State that is established as a safe haven for Jews that had their origins in the Land of Israel way before Mohammed was born.

 

My conclusion is there is a Clash of Civilizations between Western Culture (more so with American Culture) and Islamic Culture. It is inevitable the culture clash will lead to confrontation unless a transformation movement happens widely inside Islamic Culture or (God Forbid!) Western Culture so weakened by secularism begins to allow Islamic Cultural tenets to be infused into the West.

 

Obadiah Shoher believes that his concept that Israelis and the Arab-Muslim people are not so different because they are homogenous that a violent war will ultimately take place. He does not say this but the 21st century bloody war between Israel and Jew-hating Muslims could very well be a nuke war.

 

I DO CONCUR with Obadiah Shoher’s ultimate conclusion between Israel and the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. The best way for peace within Israel is to transfer Arab Jew-hating Muslims out of all the land controlled by Israel. That would be Judea-Samaria dubbed the West Bank by once occupying Jordan and the retaking of the Gaza Strip to include those that launch rockets into Israeli cities.

 

I believe such a transfer exacerbate a final Clash of Civilizations. It is time to place a chink in the armor of Islamic Supremacism to end the Islamic terrorism that occurs on Western soil in the name of Allah and Mohammed’s example.

Islam Is Not Part of Our Civilization


Burka and Stripes

 

Is Western culture perfect? No. Is Western culture superior to other cultures? Okay, I am biased at this point because the answer is yes. Although there has been a huge degradation in moral ethics in the West due to the onslaught of Secular Humanism and Moral Relativity upon the influence of Christianity in the West, it is from the West that the world has experienced some of the best modernization to improve a person’s quality of life.

 

One of my favorite anti-Islamist writers Bill Warner has written that the foundation of the West is the development of critical thinking and the Christian Golden Rule. Critical thinking is related to reasoning with measured objectivity. The Golden Rule is related to treating others as you would have them treat you.

 

Warner correctly asserts that Islam is based on authoritative thinking and dualistic ethics (e.g. two contradictory things are correct). Although a public figure like Warner would not wade out to what I am about to say, here it is: In comparison to Western Culture, Islamic Culture is evil. Read Warner’s assessment and you will see I am correct.
