LOOK OUT! I Committed Blasphemy in Pakistan


John R. Houk

© March 15, 2019

I have mentioned that I operate three blogs:

 

  1. SlantRight 2.0

 

  1. NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR)

 

  1. Ubiquitous8Thoughts

 

The first is a Blogger platform. The second is a WordPress platform. And the third is an OverBlog platform (located in France under EU rules).

 

A couple of days ago I received an email from WordPress Support notifying me the government of Pakistan had contacted WordPress over one of my posts. The Support Team informed me they weren’t going to censor my blog but if I did not remove the alleged content the NCCR blog would be banned from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

 

Here is the content of the WordPress Support email:

It looks like I will not be travelling to Pakistan anytime soon. Pakistan actually shows the legal code my “Blasphemous” content breaks.

 

So, quoting the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority:

 

Pakistan Penal Code section 295- B and is in clear violation of Section 37 of Prevention of Electronic Crime Act (PECA) 2016 and Section 19 of Constitution of Pakistan

 

I found three PDFs from Googling portions of the law I am breaking:

 

 

 

 

Of particular interest to me was from “PAKISTAN Use and abuse of the blasphemy laws,” the penalty for breaking the Blasphemy law under the heading, “2.2 Sections of the PPC amended or added during Zia-ul Haq’s Islamization drive” which is on page 7 of the PDF referencing section 295-B:

 

Several sections were inserted in the PPC in the 1980s. Section 295-B was added in 1982; it made defiling the Koran a criminal offence. It reads: “Whoever willfully [sic] defiles, damages or desecrates a copy of the Holy Koran or of an extract therefrom or uses it in any derogatory manner or for any unlawful purpose shall be punishable with imprisonment for life.” [Bold text by Blog Editor]

 

In 1980, section 298-A was inserted in the PPC, by which the use of derogatory remarks “by words, … or by imputation innuendo or insinuation, directly or indirectly” in respect of persons revered in Islam, was made a criminal offence punishable with up to three years’ imprisonment. In 1986, defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad was made a criminal offence and the relevant section, 295-C added to the PPC (see below in detail).

 

Most alarming after examining further penalties heaped on is on page 8 of the PDF under the subheading, “2.3. The blasphemy law: Section 295-C PPC”:

 

In 1986 the penal code was amended by Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1986, which added the blasphemy law under section 295-C to the Pakistan Penal Code. It provided the death penalty or life imprisonment for the criminal offence of defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad. It reads:

 

“295-C: Use of derogatory remarks, etc. in respect of the Holy Prophet: Whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representations, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine.” [Bold text by the Blog Editor]

The Court directed the government of Pakistan to effect the necessary legal changes and added, “in case this is not done by 30 April 1991 the words ‘or punishment for life’ in section 295-C, PPC, shall cease to have effect on that date”. Decisions by the Federal Shariat Court are binding on the government under Article 203-D(3) of the Constitution. The Government has the possibility to appeal against such decisions to the Shariat Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court before any directive of the Federal Shariat Court takes effect. The government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not file an appeal against the decision making the death penalty the only punishment available for blasphemy. In July 1991, it announced that it had decided to amend section 295-C as directed by the court. A bill to that effect was placed before parliament in 1992. While the Senate, the upper house of parliament, unanimously adopted the bill in July 1992, the lower house of parliament discussed it at length but did not pass it. Opposition parties considered it to be too vague and …

 

Now that’s some Free Speech limitations for essentially speaking the truth and then receiving the death penalty. Pakistan’s law establishing all things Islam as supreme is not surprising since 97% of the population is Islam and of those 97%, a staggering amount are Sunni-Islam Muslims.

 

Considering the huge number of Muslims that undoubtedly accept Islamic principles in Pakistan’s rule of law, laws relating to Blasphemy are unsurprising. Just as Christian principles should be an influence in the rule of law in Western nations.

 

As far as I am concerned, Pakistan’s rule of law is a glaring example of why Islamic principles CANNOT BE ACCEPTED in the West as the rule of law, ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA WHICH HAS A BILL OF RIGHTS AS PART OF THE CONSTITUTION WHICH AFFIRMS CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS OF NATURAL LAW!

 

I responded to the WordPress Support thinking I would get some kind of reply affirming, rejecting or a mixed reaction my Free Speech stand:

 

Pakistan is in a sad state of Sharia censoring the citizens from Free Speech truth. I pray the WordPress powers that be and the blog platform’s legal team are more protective of Free Speech than Pakistan. On the other hand Pakistan is a sovereign nation and I suspect the Pakistan government is protecting its Muslim citizens (as you probably know Pakistan is overwhelmingly a Sunni-Islam majority nation) from getting upset. In Sharia, placing the prophet Muhammad in a bad light – even when factual – is a capital crime. A Pakistani Christian (**Asia Bibi) survived for nearly 9 years on death row accused of insulting Muhammad by implying Jesus was a greater person. After nine years and the failure of evidence from Bibi’s accuser, Bibi was released from prison nearly causing riots by the devout Muslim Pakistanis.

 

It’s sad but I can live with accommodating Pakistan’s request as pertaining to Pakistan. However, outside of Pakistan, I pray you honor Free Speech and not censor posts that are outside of Pakistan’s authority.

 

Thank you for your consideration and your work, [Blog Editor: The links related to Asia Bibi were not in the original email sent to WordPress Support. The double asterisks (“**”) near Asia’s name is to a recent link about Asia stuck in a secretive location in ill health and being refused medical attention. I want to bring attention to the plight of Asia Bibi and thus will posting her still horrendous treatment directly after my thoughts on Free Speech.]

 

No response or further action of notifications so far from WordPress.

 

I can live with my blogs being banned in a 97% Muslim nation. And I believe I will not be visiting Pakistan anytime soon … or ever.

‘Everyone is Worried’: Asia Bibi ‘Very Unwell’ in Pakistani Safe House, Being Denied Medical Care

 

Asia Bibi

 

By Will Maule, Faithwire

03-11-2019

CBN News

 

Asia Bibi, the mother of five who spent almost a decade on death row for a crime she did not commit, is reported to be in dire physical condition as she continues to be held in a safe house in the Pakistani city of Karachi. Bibi, 53, was acquitted of blasphemy last October after the Supreme Court ruled that the accusations had no evidential basis. Since then, Bibi has been granted asylum in Canada, but as yet has not been released from her home country.

 

What Is The Latest?

 

According to a source quoted in The Daily Mail, Bibi is “very unwell” and being denied medical care while holed up in a safe house with “low blood pressure.”

 

“Everyone is very worried,” the source explained. “She won her appeal and was supposed to be out of Pakistan by now.”

 

Despite the fact that Bibi’s children are now safely in Canada, the Pakistani government has wanted to seek assurances from the embattled mother that she will not speak ill of her home country upon leaving. There is still no indication of when exactly Bibi will finally evade the clutches of the country that has caused her so much strife.

 

“Even though the government says she can leave, the army has all the power in this case,” the source added. “They are in control of her. They are fearful about getting a negative press if she speaks out about her experiences – but they will get an even worse press if she dies in protective custody.”

 

British officials recently stated that the Pakistani government has “confirmed that Asia Bibi is free to make her own decisions and to leave Pakistan,” but the realities of this case speak of a very different story indeed.

 

Many are calling on prominent church leaders, such as Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, to do more on Bibi’s behalf.

 

 

For now, Asia and her husband, Ashiq Masih, remain in Pakistan with little idea as to when they will be allowed to leave.

 

What Is The Background?

 

Bibi was initially arrested back in 2009 after supposedly entering into an argument with a group of women about a source of drinking water. The Islamist women accused Bibi of drinking from the same tap as them, to which Bibi allegedly responded, “Jesus Christ died for my sins. What did the prophet Muhammad do for you?” a remark which they believed offended their revered religious figure.

 

However, in the Supreme Court’s final judgment, it declared that the two sisters who accused Bibi “had no regard for the truth,” before adding that “the said semi-literate young sisters had a reason to level allegations against the appellant which could be untrue.”

 

The landmark judgment also noted that the prosecution’s presented evidence in the case “was nothing short of concoction incarnate.”

 

“Her conviction is set aside and she is to be relieved forthwith if not required in other charges,” said Chief Justice Saqib Nisar in the astonishingly bold ruling, as reported by The Guardian.

 

But the court’s statement went even further, implying that Bibi had been subject to clear-cut prejudice in her arrest and trial.

 

“It is ironical that in the Arabic language the appellant’s name Asia means ‘sinful,’” read the judgment written by Justice Asif Khosa, “but in the circumstances of the present case she appears to be a person, in the words of Shakespeare’s King Lear, ‘more sinned against than sinning.’”

 

The radicals, however, have remained bloodthirsty from the very day Bibi was arrested.

 

Prior to her acquittal, in Pakistan’s second-largest city of Lahore, hundreds of protesters gathered together and chanted “Hang infidel Asia.” Sickeningly, the hashtag #HangAsiaDefend295C was trending among the religious extremists on Twitter, with the “295C” referring to section 295-C of Pakistan’s penal code, which makes it a criminal offense to blaspheme against the Prophet Muhammad.

 

What Does The Blasphemy Law Actually Say?

 

According to the Penal Code itself, 295-B refers to the prohibiting of “Defiling, etc., of Holy Qur’an,” and 295-C is in reference to the “use of derogatory remarks, etc., in respect of the Holy Prophet.” Other violations not specific to Islam contained in Pakistan’s criminal laws include “trespassing on burial places” and “disturbing religious assembly.”

 

Those who have chosen to support Bibi’s cause have faced grave consequences. In addition to the threat against Bibi, her family and the justices involved in her acquittal, other prominent politicians have lost their lives in the pursuit of religious freedom.

 

In 2011, shortly after Bibi’s conviction, Punjab Governor Salman Taseer was brutally murdered for speaking out in support of the wrongly convicted Christian woman. Shot dead on the streets of Islamabad, his own bodyguard was found guilty of the heinous crime and, though sentenced to death himself, he has since become a cult hero with a large shrine in his honor erected on the outskirts of the capital city.

 

Just two months later, Christian politician and outspoken critic of the blasphemy laws, Shahbaz Bhatti, was also assassinated — shot dead by the Pakistani Taliban as he traveled to work.

 

Do continue to pray for Asia Bibi as she does everything in her power to flee Pakistan.

Big Eureka Moment. Population Success Story Now Defined as Doom


in-tolerance-name-imported-intolerance

Elsa Schieder sent an email as an update from the World Truth Summit. Elsa looks at the hypocrisy and misguided thinking of population control and Muslim Refugees in the West. It is something to ponder.

Big Eureka Moment. Population Success Story Now Defined as Doom

 

By Elsa Schieder

Sent from World Truth Summit

Sent 1/15/17 1:51 PM

 

I’m writing to you because I’ve had one of those big eureka moments, and I want to share it with you. What’s it about? The utter disconnect between the message on population from a few decades ago and now.

Here’s the idea in a nutshell. A few decades ago the message was that we must stop the population explosion or the world is doomed. Now the message is, the population in the West is stable or declining, so we must import millions upon millions, or the West is doomed. No civilization, we are warned, has ever survived population decline.

The verdict. Something rotten is happening.

Here’s more detail.

A few decades ago, we heard: The world is in crisis. There’s a ticking time bomb. What is it? The Population Explosion!! Soon we won’t have enough food and water. We’re running out of resources and space!!!

Urgently needed: population control. Fewer children per family. It’s irresponsible – it means doom – for people to have so many children.

Look at the world, the message went on. It took humans however long we’ve been around to reach a population of one billion. And now look at the population zoom upward. Two, three, four, five, six, seven billion! This must be stopped!

Everywhere I read about programs, worldwide, to lower the birth rate. Mobile vasectomy clinics in India. Birth control encouragement in Africa. China instituted a one-child policy – a horror because of the low status of females in China, leading to the murder of millions of baby girls, because the families hoped that the next child would be a boy.

In the West, the message was heard loud and clear.

Look around: many countries have a lower-than-self-renewing population rate – which, supposedly, was the goal. No famine. No epidemic. A slow population decline. Fabulous!!

But that’s not what we’re told now. Absolutely not.

Instead we hear the total opposite. What’s happening is a horror. The West is dying!! No civilization has ever survived a less-than-self-renewing population rate. Think of the Roman Empire. That’s what happened. Roman matrons refused to have many children. That caused the death of the Roman Empire.

Somehow the shenanigans of the Roman emperors – lots of murders, etc. – have become irrelevant. Also irrelevant, suddenly: the invading forces Rome had to contend with. In fact, suddenly everything is irrelevant except for those Roman matrons who had only one or two children each.

What can we do to stop the death of the West? Only one thing will do, we’re told: we must import masses of people. Millions upon millions.

Are these people who share the culture and/or general ideology? After all, isn’t the goal to keep Western civilization going?

No. Shared culture and/or ideology are utterly irrelevant. All that matters are numbers.

Why do we need the numbers? Because there will be millions upon millions of old people needing care. So we will need lots of younger people who can do it.

But is attention given to screening for people who will be ideal care-takers of Western people too old to take care of themselves? Absolutely not. It isn’t part of any criteria I’ve ever heard of.

In fact, as we all know, there isn’t even adequate screening against people who may endanger the West through acts of jihad terrorism, let alone screening in favor of people who will be excellent care-takers of aging Western seniors.

But at least, is there lots of screening of incomers in favor of those suited for jobs that Western citizens are not numerous enough to do, or are unwilling to do?

We do have some statistics. The employment rate of immigrants and refugees from different countries and religions varies (when such statistics exist). The lowest employment rate, in country after country where statistics are available, is among Islamics – incomers, and also second and even third generation. In other words, Islamic incomers are likely to be draining the economy rather than adding to it. So they are, on average, making it harder for people in the West rather than being helpful to keep the West functioning. Yet they make up a huge percentage of incomers.

There’s more than one eureka in all this.

Eureka one: it makes no sense, when we have succeeded in doing what we were massively encouraged to do – to lower the birth rate in order to lower the population – to condemn us for doing this and to claim our civilization is doomed because of this horror.

At the very worst, if it were to be discovered that population stability or increase were beneficial even at a time of a huge human population, one would think that sending out this message powerfully to citizens would be the appropriate response.

In fact, I don’t see that the West – or the world – is doomed if the population goes down. I think it makes sense to encourage smaller numbers of children, and have the population decline that way, rather than through war, famine, epidemics or government programs (like the Communist programs in Russia and China which led to the starvation of millions).

Then, eureka two. The proposed remedy is much more likely to doom the West than population decline. Having millions of incomers whose ideology is against Western values is no way to save the West. Quite the contrary. It endangers the West.

Finally, I come to something which is not a eureka. There are clearly strong forces working against the West – like Islam and the politically correct – or no one would recommend the intake into the West of people adhering to an anti-Western ideology.

Any more thoughts on the eureka re the shift from screams of horror about the population explosion, to screams of horror about population decline? I doubt if anyone in the West had any idea about Islam when there was emphasis on birth control. I also doubt that Islamic forces were behind the emphasis.

A guess. Perhaps, instead of the lowering of the birth rate being hailed as an amazing success, it has been repackaged as doom. Who might be behind this? It could be those who are for Islamic takeover.

Anyway, this is yet another wake-up call. Something has been defined as a fatal problem (population control) when it is actually a success. And something dangerous, potentially fatal (Islamic incoming, whether as immigrants or refugees) has been sold to the West by Islamics and the politically correct as the one and only solution to something which is not a problem.

As I said, eureka.

As always, all the best to all who care and dare,

Elsa

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.

Oil Independence: Our Modern Day Slingshot


David slays Goliath with sling

ACT for America takes the logical stand that oil dependence from Muslim dominated nations are dollars in Islamic terrorists’ pockets. Oil cash is likely not the only source of terrorist income. For example, Islamic charities in the West claiming the Moderate moniker actually are quite supportive of Islamic terrorists often via stealth measures. Nevertheless, ending oil dependence from Muslim nations would cause a big hit in the pocketbooks of Caliphate-minded transnational terrorists.

Last week, I attended a special event on Capitol Hill:  The Jewish Heritage Commission’s and AISH International’s “Celebration and Presentation of the King David Award”.

Since 1994, the King David Award has recognized men and women who have made dramatic contributions to American society and Jewish heritage.  Marc Goldman, a good friend of ACT for America, was one of this year’s award recipients.  Marc is an accomplished businessman, involved in multiple charitable activities, and is a steadfast patriot who has devoted much of his life to protecting both Israel and the U.S.

I attend many events on the Hill, and I certainly hear a lot of speeches.  Marc’s words, however, were particularly inspiring.  He reminded us that just as God provided a slingshot to defeat Goliath, He has provided the free Western world a slingshot to defeat its current-day enemies.

What did he mean?  Here is a small excerpt from Marc’s speech to help explain:

 

Today’s Western Civilization faces a much bigger threat than David did.  Nuclear weapons – our enemies have them and have promised to use them against us.  There will be no recovery if they do, so there is no time to waste. We must overcome our complacency. So what do we do?  God gave David the slingshot.  What slingshot has he given us and how do we use it?  

It turns out we do have a slingshot, a very effective one.  If we just have the will, courage and faith as David did, we too can use it.  The slingshot we have is to end oil dependence…. This slingshot will be the shot heard around the world. And we can emulate the example that King David set for us, our enemies will scatter and we will make the world a better, safer, and even cleaner place and then we can begin to bring peace, love, and harmony to all of God’s children.”

Achieving oil independence (specifically allowing consumers transportation fuel choice) in order to stop terror funding, has been an issue on which ACT for America has been working for years.  Only when oil is no longer a worldwide strategic commodity will our modern-day enemies lose their petrodollar-purchased terror weapons.

Take action on this bill now. You can help. You can make a difference.

Stripping our enemies of the ability to fund terror through oil money is the only real “silver bullet” to defeating worldwide jihadi terrorism.  Utilizing solely our domestic oil certainly is a step in the right direction, but it won’t solve the much larger problem: Enemy nations setting the world-wide price of oil and then using the proceeds to fund terror. Working together, we can stop this.

Thank you for all that you do.

The Rape of Europe is Approaching America by Prof Paul Eidelberg


What go wrong Muslim Refugees -REALLY

I discovered a November 2015 video documentary (about 19 minutes) about what Muslim refugees and Muslim immigrants are doing to the nations of Western Europe. That means someone in Europe recognized the problem of Islam in Europe before the rash of Islamic terrorist attacks and Islamic rape jihad finally has become undeniable in European nations.

 

If you watch this video and are a fellow American, this is what you have to look forward to in the United States of America if Obama and the Democrats – and God forbid an elected new Dem Party President in 2016 – continue their multiculturalist designs to dilute America into something unrecognizable!

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106-43 BC

You are witnessing what will be shown to future generations as the reason for the fall of an Empire.

At current immigration levels and disappearing birth rates native Europeans are destined to become a minority in their own countries within decades. This is already the case for many of Europe’s largest cities.

Europeans have effectively lost their right to exist as cultures and nations in their own homelands and are facing extinction.

Millions of young Muslim men leave behind their family, pay thousands to criminal traffickers to reach the land they have been promised by European politicians illegally.

Dubbed by the media as “refugees”, they cross through 6-10 safe countries to reach wealthy nations like Germany or Sweden where they hope to receive a better life at the expense of the taxpayer.

Only a fraction of them are Syrian, as they enter unfiltered, without any documents and without any legitimate right to claim asylum. Women and children are rarely seen, except in the cherry-picked sob stories of the media.

Any indigenous resistance of Europeans who refuse to hand over the countries of their ancestors to often radical and criminal Muslim foreigners is labeled “hateful”, “racist”, even “Nazi”.

The level of cultural, moral and political subversion with egalitarian and Marxist ideologies has reached levels the KGB would never have dreamed of. Equality and tolerance are lies that serve none but a few.

The Left, mainly orchestrated by Zionist interests [Blog Editor: Uggh, even as this video poster decries anti-Islam as not being racism, this guy blames Jews for the flow of Muslim refugees who hate Jews, Christians and Westerners in general. THAT BUG ME!], is destroying our countries from the inside. Patriotism, the most basic and fundamental trait of any nation that wants to survive, has become something to be ashamed of.

Feminism has destroyed family values and birth rates. Healthy nationalism has been replaced with a culture of guilt, self-hatred, apathy, degeneracy and pathological altruism. We are told to embrace “diversity”, in reality this simply means instead of just being a global minority, Europeans are supposed to become a minority in their own countries as well. No civilized society can keep up with the birth rate of third world immigrants, especially when the main goal is integration rather than assimilation. Parallel societies breed poverty, crime and radicalism.

Multiculturalism has never, at any time in human history, worked anywhere. If you believe otherwise, you’re delusional. In fact, it’s the primary reason for every major conflict.

The crimes committed by the EU against the European peoples are directly in violation of the 1948 UN genocide convention, Article II: (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Because of this injustice, far-right parties everywhere in Europe are gaining astonishing amounts of support, becoming the biggest parties in some countries.

Any European that does not rise up to defend his country from foreign invasion because he’s too scared of words does not deserve it.

We are still at a point where you will not get imprisoned for your political opinion in most European countries, but this will change very soon. Do not be apathetic, do not be weak. Be someone that can be proud to call himself European.

Nazis and Muslims…..


Be the judge= Nazism & Islam

The Waking Giant cross posted an article by Alain Wagner that draws an awesome analogy of political correctness hypocrisy contrasting society’s view of Nazism and Islam. Good Read!

Nazis and Muslims…..

 

Posted by twg2a PitBull

The Waking Giant

 

Nazis versus Muslims
by Alain Wagner

 

I regularly receive a newsletter written by a female friend who is a professor of philosophy in Canada. Her most recent newsletter dealt with the apparent discrepancy between how “Joe Public” viewed Muslims versus how Nazis were perceived, and what it revealed about the nature of the modern psyche.

 

The case of the Nazis

 

In the mind of the overwhelming majority of people today, all Nazis without exception are directly linked to the Final Solution, to the slaughter of the Jews, the Gypsies and of homosexuals and ultimately to the extermination camps. Nobody in their right mind would dare to suggest it might have been the fault of a few Nazi extremists whose actions gave a bad name to a political set of ideas which might have otherwise been viewed as quite respectable. All Nazis are tarred with the same brush: all shared the same ideology, the same set of beliefs, all had a hand in it and all were guilty of a horrendous crime.

 

My friend rightly reminded her readers that the Final Solution was only fully conceptualized and implemented in the year 1942, that the Nazi regime kept a tight lid on their plans, and that the existence of a police state made it very difficult for information to be circulated. There was at that time no Facebook on which to post video-clips of SS soldiers herding the inmates into the death camps, and no Internet to publish photos of grinning torturers in the process of putting their victims to death.

 

It is therefore perfectly plausible that a good number of Nazis weren’t in the know and remained ignorant of what was happening in the extermination camps masquerading as concentration camps.

 

This does not mean that they were either philo-Semitic or great lovers of democracy, but it does render the equation of Nazi = Holocaust rather moot, as not all Nazis were party to the extermination plan. It is, therefore, within the realm of possibility that amongst those opportunistic individuals who joined the party to further their social or professional standing, not all were monsters.

 

The conclusion drawn is that not all Nazis were killers and that, had they been privy to the real darkness at the heart of their ideology, many would probably have turned away in disgust and revulsion.

 

We might have called these “moderates” or “reformed-Nazis”, whilst the rest of them, those who could quietly contemplate unspeakable horrors and still remain faithful to the Nazi party were complicit in the crime, far past any possible redemption and as guilty as they come.

 

Muslims and a case of double standards

 

The way Muslims are perceived is exactly the other way round. Even though all Muslims, including each and every Taliban and each and every killer from the Islamic State, belong part and parcel to the same ideological core set of beliefs, (i.e. Islam), which is characterised by the worship of the same Book (the Koran), the same man as an example to follow (Mohammed), the same common law (sharia), we are told in no uncertain terms that we must not on any account let some rotten apples spoil the whole bunch.

 

To be totally honest, I do agree with this point of view. I always like to remind people in the audience when I am giving a lecture that generalisations always lead to falsehoods and unjust prejudices, and that one mustn’t conflate what people think and what they are. Individuals are not equivalent to their ideology, and ideas aren’t people.

 

What made me think long and hard is the difference in treatment when we start comparing the Nazis with our current set of Muslims: we are ordered to not lump all Muslims together, or as the French put it “Padamalgam”[1], which freezes our powers of thinking and then forbids us to question those Muslims who are currently living in our societies in accordance to their obedience to Islamic doctrine.

 

Likewise, this injunction to “never ever lump together” aims to force us to automatically absolve any Muslim who has not committed a violent act from any guilt by association, even moral guilt.

 

Ideology does not equal the man; nonetheless adherence to it remains a conscious, deliberate act which engages individual responsibility

 

I obviously do not mean to suggest that all Muslims are terrorists or supporters of the Islamic State, or that they they [sic] may have killed somebody or are planning to at some point in the future. What we must ask ourselves is this: in the name of what exactly are we suppose to refrain from asking these people whom we are told are our fellow citizens, to clarify their position as to their obedience to Islamic ideology? An Islamic ideology which, as anybody who is honest enough would be hard pressed to deny, all criminals who slaughter, rape and enslave in the name of Islam have shared throughout history.

 

We also owe it to ourselves to ask in whose name we should accept without any further questioning those “This is not Islam” retorts, which are an insult to our intelligence and a slap in the face of tangible reality, whenever heinous crimes and intolerable behaviours are indulged in in the name of Islam.

 

Disingenuous excuses must stop and responsibilities must be assumed

 

Why, exactly, should we carry on accepting the premise that Muslims are ignorant of the tenets of Islam, that they cannot know its content? Is the objective and unchanging [2] doctrine of Islam and the behaviours that are allowed or proscribed by it totally unknowable?

 

Of course not! What do you think they teach in Islamic universities? How would their imams otherwise know and teach their own doctrine?

 

The political, discriminatory and violent nature of Islam is a solidly established fact. What a relentless process of disinformation aimed to sell us as a “religion just like any others” finally revealed its true colours to all unbiased observers: Islam is, at its core, a totalitarian ideology.

 

The “spiritual dimension” found in this ideology should not divert attention from its true nature; specific mystical belief systems, books, supreme leaders and the project of a type of society for the entire humanity were also to be found in Nazism and the Chinese brand of communism.

 

Why should we continue to accept, as a given, that those Muslims living in our countries must not be under the obligation to learn the contents of the Islamic doctrine, in the light of what is happening in the world today, and then draw the obvious conclusions: should they abide by it or not?

 

The Muslims currently living in Western societies cannot, in any way, shape or form, be compared to the Germans of yesteryear. They can freely access the history of Islam and its long retinue of horrors and unspeakable crimes, or read books describing sharia law or the life of the man they are supposed to model their lives on.

 

In contrast with the Germans who lived in a police state, they are free to reject without risk a creed whose tenets are antithetical to human freedom and dignity.

 

It would be quite condescending as well as patronising to view those Muslims who live in the West as being incapable of getting hold of the proper information and of making a responsible choice.

 

The West offers Muslims the amazing opportunity to free themselves from the shackles of Muslim ideology and become free human beings, respectful of the natural rights and freedoms enjoyed by their fellow citizens.

 

Who would then carry on insisting that Muslims cannot freely choose their own destiny, decide where their loyalty lies and assume responsibility for the choices that they make?

 

Why do we insist on humouring them so as to not offend their supposed sensibilities, and why do we carry on treating them as though they were irresponsible, illiterate, or slightly retarded children?

 

Today we share our society with people who may or may not adhere to an ideology that’s extremely violent, discriminatory and destructive of our way of life. Knowing where these people stand is now a question of survival.

 

And in view of the consequences that necessarily follow this ideology when it is put into practise in the real world, why exactly should we be satisfied with being shrugged off, with getting an ambiguous reply accompanied with the usual protests about a so-called stigmatisation of their faith?

 

Adherence or non-adherence to Islamic ideology and to sharia law must no longer be a question unasked and unspoken. This question, left unasked, is the breeding ground which will beget chaos and the tearing asunder of our society. And today, people die for this on French soil.

 

To finally ask the question that has, up till now, been left unsaid is to force a choice, and so choosing means to renounce one of the choices.

 

It means either:

 

Disown those who adhere to Islamic ideology, to sharia law and the inevitable violence and oppression that follow in their wake,

 

Or

 

Abandon the idea of being part of Western societies, which are based upon respect for liberty and the freedoms enjoyed by all citizens.

 

There can be no compromise, no meeting part way, no grey areas: that time has come and gone.

 

Our duty to keep our societies safe gives us the right to ask Muslims the following question: “Where do you stand: for or against sharia law?” We mustn’t let ourselves be fobbed off.

 

The Muslims living among us must give a clear reply, in words and in deeds, acknowledging that they reject once and for all sharia law and all that it entails. Failure to do so would necessarily mean that they endorse the horrors committed by Islam and should thus rightly be considered as today’s Nazis

[Blog Editor: When “twg2a PitBull” cross posted this article the notes were not included on The Waking Giant. For me that was a bit annoying since the reference note was to a word that I did not have a clue as to its meaning – “Padamalgam”. In the process of Googling the meaning I discovered the blog Gates of Vienna had posted this Alain Wagner article of which was probably the original English translation for the very original was in French.

 

By the way before I came upon the Gates of Vienna version on Google I found a somewhat detailed explanation of Padamalgam on a website called Know Your Meme. Although I’m still posting the notes after these editorial thoughts I thought those of you as ignorant as I might be interested in the details of the word:

 

Padamalgam

 

Updated about a year ago by Tomberry.

Added about a year ago by Tomberry.

 

About

 

Padamalgam is an internet slang, contraction of the French sentence pas d’amalgame which means no conflation in English. Initially used to convey mockery and criticism of the perceived overly political correctness from the French mainstream media when reporting on acts of violence committed [sic] by people of a specific social background and religious orientation, namely Islam, the term has then been embraced by various islamophobic groups on social networking sites.

 

Origins

 

Among the earliest blog posts coining the term is an article from Les enfants de la zone grise [1], issued on May 5th 2010 and titled “Grande peur des non-pensants”, arguing that the French media were quick on dismissing any argument in favor of a causal relationship between acts of violence comitted [sic] by muslims and Islam itself under the pretense of not wanting to promote conflating or denigratory comments against them.

 

Spread

 

While the slang didn’t get as much notability online in the years 2010 and 2011, It began to spread on March 21th 2012 when it was converted to an hashtag [10] and posted to Twitter, following the Toulouse and Montauban shootings [2] (shown below).

 

Tweets of Padamalgam photo

Tweets of Padamalgam photo

 

On that same month, many articles and blog posts [3] [4] were made reusing the slang in order to mock the media and the government on how they covered the event by first claiming the attacks were done by a neo-nazi before revealing the real culprit was muslim Mohammed Merah. The Huffington Post also parodied this sentiment of “political correctness”, in a cartoon presenting a spokeperson [sic] stating that no conflation should be made between the shooting and Japan because the killer was riding a Japanese-made bike[5] (shown below).

 

HuffPo drawing of Padamalgam on the 2012 Toulouse shooting

HuffPo drawing of Padamalgam on the 2012 Toulouse shooting

 

As a matter of fact, many French right-wing groups took this new slang on their own to highlight perceived threats coming from Islam [6].

 

The 2015 shootings

 

The hashtag #padamalgam got a resurgence in popularity following the 2015 Charlie Hebdo shooting as well as the 2015 Copenhagen shootings [9]. Many tweets were very critical of the fact muslims were the perpretrators [sic] of both attacks. Some users even made parodie images of medicine tablets with the name padamalgam as pills that enable people to be oblivious to a perceived increase in attacks only perpetrated by muslims. Newspaper Le Monde commented on the phenomenon[7] and its islamophobic tone, highlighting the tweets as well as several facebook pages [8] made after the name.

 

Twitter insight omitted

 

The Gates of Vienna post had photos which I am omitting. Below is first the explanation on the English translation and origin which will be followed by notes 1 and 2 of Alain Wagner’s article.]

Nazis Versus Muslims

Gates of Vienna

March 19, 2016

 

The following article by Alain Wagner of Vérité, Valeurs et Démocratie was originally published in French at the VV&D website. Many thanks to Nathalie for the translation.

 

NOTES:

 

  1. Phonetic transcription of “Pas d’amalgame” = No conflation, never lump together

 

  1. 75% of the content of sharia law is common to all schools of Islamic law, the differences having to do with minor points only.

Brussels: What We Can Learn From Today’s Attacks


Yesterday I posted “Why Islam Sucks”. Today I woke up to the news that Islamic terrorists set off two bombs in Brussels – one at Zaventem airport and another at Brussels’ Maelbeek metro station. As of this moment there is uncertainty if one or more were homicidal suicide bombers. I even heard that a bomb might have been placed in a suitcase at the airport. Also as of this writing thirty-four people have died from the two bombs. It is predicted the death toll may climb higher.

Islamic terrorist Trojan Horse to EU

Has anyone noticed that the uptick in Islamic terrorist incidents in Europe seems to coincide with the influx of Muslim refugees fleeing war in Syria-Iraq due to Daesh (aka ISIS, ISIL or IS)?

 

Below the Clarion Project analyzes what we have learned from these Islamic terrorist attacks to date.

Brussels: What We Can Learn From Today’s Attacks

Today, terrorists attacked Brussels both the airport and a metro station in the center of the city. Here’s what we can learn from the attacks.

Europe is reeling from the latest terrorist attacks, this time against Brussels, now confirmed to be a terrorist attacks.  Three blasts have been reported so far, two in the Zaventem airport and one at the Maelbeek metro station some 500 meters from the European Parliament.

 

Here are three takeaways from this most recent tragic attack.

 

  1. This Fight Impacts Everyone

 

The attack in Brussels follows Saturday’s attack on Istanbul by an Islamic State suicide bomber that killed four. Countries attacked so far this year by Islamist terrorist either working for groups or in lone wolf attacks (and remember it’s only March) include:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s attacks on 26 countries across North America, South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and East Asia in just three months. This is a problem everywhere. It is no longer possible to argue it doesn’t impact you or that there is nothing you can do about it.

 

  1. Terrorism Works If You Let it

 

This one is difficult to internalize. Terrorism operates by creating an outsized reaction to a highly publicized event. It works to create “terror” in a population by stripping citizens of their feeling of safety, inculcating an atmosphere where people feel they can be attacked anywhere and at any time.

 

Societies respond with security measures designed to protect the citizenry and these can at times be heavy handed and worsen community relations, driving more people into the arms of terrorist groups. Public confusion and panic exacerbates the problem. One of the aims of groups like the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is to create a backlash of anti-Muslim bigotry and thus instigate a war between Muslims and everyone else. Chaos, hatred and confusion is the favored working environment of terrorists and Islamists since it enables them to advance their goals under the cover of the fog of war.

 

Muslim and non-Muslim groups working together against terrorism and the Islamist ideology which spawns it (as distinct from the religion of Islam) in a firm, calm and unified manner is therefore essential to a counter-extremism strategy in civil society.

 

  1. This will not stop until the ideology is defeated

 

The countries that have been attacked do not share a cohesive foreign policy platform or common causes except being opposed to the ideology of Islamism.

 

This Islamist ideology, which seeks to conquer the world and implement sharia governance under a theocratic Islamist caliphate gives people who are drawn to acts of violence an outlet for their grievances and an opportunity to justify crimes on an international scale.

 

In addition to the military steps needed to tackle violent groups, an international civil society effort to correctly label, deconstruct and intellectually discredit the underlying ideology that justifies such heinous acts will bring an end to the international wave of violence committed in its name.

Reliving the Fall of Rome?


Elsa Schieder from WorldTruthSummit.com

Intro to ‘Reliving the Fall of Rome?’

Intro by John R. Houk

Intro date: 6/22/15

Updated: 6/22/15 4:10 PM CT

 

Elsa Schieder Ph.D. is a Liberal/Progressive academic from Canada. The appellation of the word “Liberal” usually means she is the enemy as far as my political spectrum goes. However I have to say she is a Liberal I admire.

Dr. Schieder (I believe she prefers Dr. Zee) is one of the few Liberals that gets it about the threat of Islam (she would probably prefer Radical Islam) to Western Civilization. The reality of life is that all sides of the Western political spectrum should be concerned of just how anti-Western and in my perspective Anti-Christian and Anti-Jewish.

Dr. Schieder is a busy gal. I know her from the World Truth Summit is a forum for prominent Counterjihad writers to expose Islam. She is also a bit of a poet (which is beyond my barbarian expertise), a Blogger, a critical thinker (Idea Emporium) and probably more pans in the fire than I know.

I’m on Dr. Schieder’s email list. Her 6/21 email has observations about the West in which I wholly agree. She entitles it “Reliving the Fall of Rome?” After you read I think you may agree a better title would have been from her own words – “Brain Wreck”.

Dr. Schieder precedes her thoughts with some poetry to music videos relating to peaceful unity, the idiocy of Islamic hatred and a somewhat ethereal poem about YOU being the wild card to effect global chaos. However I am more interested in her thoughts about reliving world leaders allowing the destruction of the fabric of society. Thus I am placing the videos at the end rather than the beginning.

Reliving the Fall of Rome?

By Elsa Schieder PhD

Sent: 6/21/2015 6:15 AM

Sometimes I feel I’m living through the fall of Rome. More on that in a bit. First, something that’s not on the idea side. 3 songs – one on what we’d love to have (The Garden), one on what we’re up against (Too Many Heads Off), and one on the role of the joker (The Joker is Wild). So 3 songs, and then back to Rome, Nero and the present.

Sometimes I feel I’m living through the fall of Rome. I remember reading about Nero fiddling, and about huge spectacles held to keep Roman citizens happy – gladiators killing each other, Christians thrown to lions.

And now I’m living through stories in the news that make no sense to me, with my care for facts – American blacks rioting and a president siding with the rioters when a white cop shoots a black thief, though there is massive evidence that the cop was more than fair. Islamic State – beheadings, sex slavery, ongoing suicide murdering – and the ongoing denial by many people in the West that Islamic State, which quotes from Islamic texts, is Islamic. The stories are just too insane.

And then there is the massive influx into Europe and the States of people whose Islamic ideology favors destroying every ideology but theirs, destroying any ideology that is pro male female equality, pro-democracy, pro the acceptance of other religions.

It makes no sense. If this were a dream, I would tell myself to wake up.

Instead, a huge part of me just cannot believe that what is happening could possibly be happening.

Another part asks: how does one stop this? What more can I do to turn the tide?

Quite an expression – to turn the tide!! Quite something to even think of doing.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about BrainWreck – the wrecking of people’s brains in the West. It goes with something I’ve thought and written a lot about – Think or Sink: We Think or the West Sinks.

How to deal with wrecked brains – like the brains of the politically correct? Like the brains of those who refuse to look at the content of Islam and instead intone “all cultures are equal”? In fact, do we deal with such brainwrecked people? Or do we concentrate on people with un-wrecked – or anyway, relatively unwrecked – brains?

Something to think about.

By the way, how do you like the term, brainwrecked – rather than the milder term, politically correct? Does the term resonate for you?

Here’s my viewpoint. I understand the value of using terms people know. I also understand the value of using a new term for something different.

Politically correct is the term for a mindset. Brain wreck is a term for something different: what’s needed inside the brain for a person to be politically correct. Inside the politically correct: a brain wreck.

And finally, before ending, an announcement: I’m going to try something new. A short Wednesday video – 5 min max. Why Wednesday? It’s mid-week. Far away enough from the weekend before, and the weekend coming. My guess: people may have a few minutes. The goal: to give something not just to watch, but to share.

And now, all the best to all of us who care and dare,

Elsa

PS. More on brainwrecked brains. Here’s a great short video on the content of Islamic texts and the Islamic response: . Once again, inside the brain, a brain wreck.

PPS. By the way, if you like any of the songs, please share. My sense: something is blocking our having a music of our own. And of course, if you like any of the ideas, please also share those.

And finally, something new.

Meet Fjordman: Europe’s Most Infamous Anti-Islamist Writer

The Conservative Citizen

 

“The civilization of Europe, America, and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization, because of victories stretching through the centuries from the days of Miltiades and Themistocles to those of Charles Martel in the eighth century and those of John Sobieski in the seventeenth century. During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any ” social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence and the decaying native Christian churches are concerned. There are such “social values” today in Europe, America, and Australia only because during those thousand years the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do, that is, to beat back the Moslem invader. It is of course worth while for sociologists to discuss the effect of this European militarism on “social values,” but only if they first clearly realize and formulate the fact that if the European militarism had not been able to defend itself against and to overcome the militarism of Asia and Africa, there would have been no “social values” of any kind in our world today, and no sociologists to discuss them.” -Theodore Roosevelt, “Social Values and National Existence”, Papers and Proceedings of the American Sociological Society

 

The writer and author Peder Are Nøstvold Jensen, better known as Fjordman, is a European treasure and a near extinct rarity unfortunately. I have admired and followed him for many years.

 

He’s been an inspiration to me personally as a writer and essayist. In fact, his book Defeating Eurabia was the catalyst for my own book No Apologies which will be released on Amazon for the Kindle this spring.

 

Fjordman has paid the price for having the courage to stand up for what is right and true. It is incredible, that in today’s Europe, one can hardly dare to stand up ones culture and country without undergoing intense scrutiny, harassment, and sometimes even persecution from the authorities. Not to mention risking death at the hands of the Muslims hordes who those same authorities have allowed to overrun the borders and flood the continent in their millions.

 

The goal of European and Western survivalists — and that’s what we are, it is our very survival that is at stake — should not be to “fix” the ideology of Multiculturalism but to be mentally prepared for its collapse, and to develop coherent answers to what went wrong and prepare to implement the necessary remedies when the time comes. We need to seize the window of opportunity, and in order to do so, we need to define clearly what we want to achieve. What went wrong with our civilization, and how can we survive and hopefully regenerate, despite being an increasingly vulnerable minority in an often hostile world? – Fjordman

 

There was once a time when the countries and nations of Europe fought ferociously and bravely against the various barbarian waves that sought to conquer it. Those days are apparently only mere memories now in the minds of those who read dusty history books and no longer part of the mentality of a civilization that is under unending racial, cultural, and religious assault. One would think that the literal descendants of the vast hordes of fierce warriors who vigorously attacked and eventually helped destroy the great and once powerful Roman Empire would learn from what occurred in their own past, on their own continent, by their own forefathers.

 

It is heartbreaking to watch the slow and steady suicide of a once proud and powerful race, people, continent, and civilization. They have become utterly, and possibly fatally, infected with the deadly diseases of progressivism; multiculturalism, atheism, socialism, tolerance, diversity, and political correctness. Europe has been stubborn in clinging to these discredited ‘isms’ that undermine the very foundations of the very things that once made them great and powerful Peoples and Empires.

 

The two great European civil wars of the last century seems to have so weakened and disillusioned the cradle of Western Civilization that the infection of progressivism was able to get a stranglehold on its victim. It hasn’t yet let go yet as it has swept from country to country across the continent with barely a whimper of dissent from the population.

 

Fjordman is an admirable exception to that rule and has for many years been a forceful voice for the preservation of European civilization and against the Islamization of Europe. After the 2011 Norway attacks by Anders Behring Breivik (see Is Anders Behring Breivik the Nordic Che Guevara?) Peder was ‘outed’ as Fjordman (a dangerous thing in Europe), lost his job, came under intense scrutiny from the government, and had his personal computer confiscated by the police. He is currently in exile from his native Norway and has paid the price for speaking out for the truth.

 

If you are not acquainted with the writings of Fjordman and his essays then I humbly suggest you take the time to explore his passionate and intellectual defense of Europe, common sense, and the preservation of Western Civilization. An up to date collection of his writings, the Fjordman Files, can be viewed here.

 

A little bit about my future plans. At the time of writing, I am completing the manuscript for a book that will be partly about the Breivik case. I have chosen to call it Witness to Madness. This will probably be self-published and should be in circulation at Amazon.com and other venues … most likely as both an ebook and as a printed paper book. At the time of writing I have surpassed 51,000 words that have already been edited and largely proofread. I am editing an analysis of Breivik’s so-called manifesto that will not be published in advance online, but will be exclusive to the book. When this is added within a few days, the word count for already edited material will be about 70,000 words.

 

Strictly speaking, this would be long enough to publish a full-length book if I so choose. However, I wish to include a bit more material before I publish, partly about how I experienced the Breivik case — including my meeting with Norwegian police — partly about Breivik’s psyche and the trial, and finally a section about the mass media and dishonest journalism. I have the option to include even more material than this, for instance about Islamization and Western appeasement.

 

I will wrap up the book at some point this fall and have already hired a proofreader.

 

Thereafter I will complete the manuscript for my book The Curious Civilization, which was already 90% finished at the time of Anders Behring Breivik’s massacre…. I hope to find a regular publisher for this title from the start, so it won’t be in circulation for some time yet.

 

After that, I will complete a book about Islam, and why I don’t think it can be reformed.

 

I have plans for several more books, too, possibly one about the self-destruction of Sweden and its model of the welfare state; maybe one about the EU, or about what went wrong with Western civilization.

 

In the long run I have serious plans for a huge brick of a book of a thousand-plus pages about European accomplishments over the past 40,000 years, from beer to Beethoven. This ambitious project is going to take me several more years to complete, however. It won’t be in circulation any time soon. –Fjordman

Dajjal and I are both Politically Incorrect


 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali quote on true Islam

 

John R. Houk

© January 7, 2015

 

Dajjal (in a nice way for my old online buddy) makes his case for his stand that Muslims should be obliterated since I somewhat disagreed with him in the post, “Save Western Civ. With Total Unconditional Victory”.

 

For clarity’s sake my stand was against obliteration and for a WWII style war until there is an Unconditional Surrender of Muslim dominated areas and then use a harsh form of despotism to retrain the minds of Muslims away from the Quranic teachings of Islamic Supremacism by any means. I should have gone further.

 

Muslim conquerors transformed the lands they conquered (primarily Christian and Hindu but others too) and forced the suppression of non-Muslim religions to amend their practice to not insult or contradict Islam. The penalty for refusing the rules of Islam for non-Muslims was death. Those that did submit were treated like scum with frequent humiliating and sometime violent circumstances to be endured. After hundreds of years in the conquered Christian areas, the former majority chose Islam rather than the debilitating life of a non-Muslim Christian.

 

My idea of despotism was the same treatment of Muslims that Muslim rulers and armies did to their conquered. I am certain the politically correct crowd would link my thoughts as almost as bad as Dajjal’s obliteration solution. I have reached the point of “I don’t care anymore”. The ideology spewed by the Quran, Hadith and Sira are inherently evil in respect to non-Muslims.

 

The Western World has developed a secularist mentality toward religion which appears to me to actively diminish the Christian faith. BUT my fellow Christians you should know this about Islam. The Islamic religion’s revered writings deny the centrality of your Christian faith. Specifically Islam denies Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that the Lord was Crucified and that He arose bodily after three days in a tomb to sit at the Right Hand of the Father. For that matter denies that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is ONE God manifested as three persons. We Christians call that the Trinity. Muslims call it polytheism. In a Muslim dominated nation if you stand up for Christianity being Truth, you would be guilty of blasphemy which could lead the State to sentence you to death. If a Muslim nation does not officially sanction the Quranic punishment for offending Islam with Christian truth it is likely the authorities will look the other way as Muslims take the law into their own hands and slay you for blasphemy.

 

Ergo, even if Islam were actually a religion of peace (which it isn’t) it would still be a specifically antichrist religion.

This is why total victory must lead to total political authority even if political despotism is used harshly in unWestern-like ways.” -John R. Houk 2/6/15

 

The Crusaders made a fatal error: they neglected to eradicate Islam in the territory they conquered.

 

The US Navy made a fatal error in the Barbary Wars: they neglected to eradicate Islam from Libya & Morocco.

 

The colonizing powers made a fatal error in the lands they colonized: they neglected to eradicate Islam from them.

 

Shrub made a fatal error in Afghanistan & Iraq. Can you guess what it was?

 

In an existential conflict, victory consists of the total extinction of the aggressor. Anything short of total eradication is less than victory, ensuring eventual defeat.

 

When fighting a grass fire, you first suppress the fire, then you cool and rake the hot spots so there is no ignition source to rekindle the fire after you leave. The same strategy must be used in fighting Islam.

 

You cannot defeat Islam without destroying their Iman [***] or their lives. They must cease believing in Allah, his imperatives, threat and promise or they must cease drawing breath. A little fire left behind will rekindle and spread. Put it all out!

 

[***Blog Editor: I am never sure if Dajjal means “Iman” or “Iman” with this word. He did provide me an explanation once but sadly I don’t remember what that explanation was.

 

Most understand that an “Imam” is an Islamic religious leader.

 

I think though that Dajjal is actually referring to “Iman” in the context of this sentence. This is the meaning of “Iman” from what I could discover:

 

The Six articles of Islamic faith

 

Iman is generally outlined using the six articles of faith:

 

1.       Belief in Allah

 

2.      Belief in the Angels

 

3.     Belief in Divine Books

 

4.     Belief in the Prophets

 

5.      Belief in the Day of Judgment        

 

6.     Belief in Allah’s predestination

 

Of these, the first five are mentioned together in the Qur’an[9] and by  Muhammad, while including a corollary of belief in Allah – the good and evil of fate ordained by God – has referred to all six together in the following manner in the Hadith of Gabriel:

 

“Iman is that you believe in God and His Angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Hereafter and the good and evil fate [ordained by your God].”[10]

 

Another similar narration ascribed to Muhammad is:

 

Ibn Abbas narrates that the Angel Jibril once asked the Prophet: “Tell me what is Iman?” The Prophet replied: “Iman is to believe in Allah, the Day of Judgment, His (Allah’s) Angels, Books and Prophets and to believe in life after death; and to believe in Paradise and the Fire, and the setting up of the Mizan (scales) to weigh the deeds; and to believe in the Divine Decree, the good and the bad of it (all). Jibril then asked him: “If I do all this will I be with Iman?” The Prophet said: “When you have done all of this, you will be having Iman.”[11]

 

It is also assumed that the essential Iman consists of the first 3 items (Belief in God, Prophets, and the Hereafter).[12] (The Six articles of Islamic faith; Wikipedia; This page was last modified on 31 January 2015, at 07:48)]

In the case of Islam a little forced reformation is in order to change Mo’s ideology into something closer resembling a Judeo-Christian heritage.” –John R. Houk 2/6/15

 

“None can change his words.” “No change let there be…” Islam cannot be reformed internally or externally. Mission impossible!

When in doubt about the meaning of any ayat, Corpus Quran offers several useful tools, including a word by word translation from the Arabic.
