Islam p 4
The Psychology of the Musulman
This book was published in French in 1922 and English in 1923. It will never be published again. In fact, there are many people who will find this book hateful to Islam and demand it not be available to anyone. We know who ‘those people’ are. But that has all changed. Read more>>
André Servier [was chief editor of La Dépêche de Constantine, a newspaper from the city ofConstantine in northeastern Algeria. Servier studied well the customs and manners of the North African people, becoming one of the few French intellectuals who studied in depth Ibn Ishaq‘s Sira. His studies included the Ottoman Empire and the Panislamic movement.]
André Servier was an historian who lived in French Algeria at the beginning of the 20th century.
Islam was not a torch, as has been claimed, but an extinguisher. Conceived in a barbarous brain for the use of a barbarous people, it was – and it remains – incapable of adapting itself to civilization. Wherever it has dominated, it has broken the impulse towards progress and checked the evolution of society.
Islam is Christianity adapted to Arab mentality, or, more exactly, it is all that the unimaginative brain of a Bedouin, obstinately faithful to ancestral practices, has been able to assimilate of the Christian doctrines. Lacking the gift of imagination, the Bedouin copies, and in copying he distorts the original. Thus Musulman law is only the Roman Code revised and corrected by Arabs; in the same way Musulman science is nothing but Greek science interpreted by the Arab brain; and again, Musulman architecture is merely a distorted imitation of the Byzantine style.
The deadening influence of Islam is well demonstrated by the way in which the Musulman comports himself at different stages of his life. In his early childhood, when the religion has not as yet impregnated his brain, he shows a very lively intelligence and remarkably open mind, accessible to ideas of every kind; but, in proportion as he grows up, and as, through the system of his education, Islam lays hold of him and envelops him, his brain seems to shut up, his judgment to become atrophied, and his intelligence to be stricken by paralysis and irremediable degeneration.
Islam is by no means a negligible element in the destiny of humanity. The mass of three hundred million believers is growing daily, because in most Musulman countries the birth-rate exceeds the death-rate, and also because the religious propaganda is constantly gaining new adherents among tribes still in a state of barbarism.
To sum up: the Arab has borrowed everything from other nations, literature, art, science, and even his religious ideas. He has passed it all through the sieve of his own narrow mind, and being incapable of rising to high philosophic conceptions, he has distorted, mutilated and desiccated everything. This destructive influence explains the decadence of Musulman nations and their powerlessness to break away from barbarism…
Islam is a doctrine of death, inasmuch as the spiritual not being separated from the temporal, and every manifestation of activity being subjected to dogmatic law, it formally forbids any change, any evolution, any progress. It condemns all believers to live, to think, and to act as lived, thought and acted the Musulmans of the second century of the Hegira [8th century A.D.], when the law of Islam and its interpretation were definitely fixed.
. . .
In the history of the nations, Islam, a secretion of the Arab brain, has never been an element of civilization, but on the contrary has acted as an extinguisher upon its flickering light. Individuals under Arab rule have only been able to contribute to the advance of civilization in so far as they did not conform to the Musulman dogma, but they relapsed into Arab barbarism as soon as they were obliged to make a complete submission to these dogmas.
. . .
Islamized nations, who have not succeeded in freeing themselves from Musulman tutelage, have been stricken with intellectual paralysis and decadence. They will only escape as they succeed in withdrawing themselves from the control of Musulman law.
“Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” (Quran Verse 2:216)
Muhammad was a peaceful man who taught his followers to be the same. Muslims lived peacefully for centuries, fighting only in self-defense – and when it was necessary. True Muslims would never act aggressively.

The Quranic deception doctrine of islam
(what muslims can do to raise Islam to reach its ideals realistically)
there is a major discrepancy between the perception of Islam in the world today and its reality. among those who are not Muslim and know nothing about Islam, it would be expected to find ignorance about its principles, ethics, tenets, etc. but even among the Muslims across the world in various countries there is no standard. why so much deviation?
actually this is not an article broaching the subject of why some Muslims are not following their religion or who is and who is not, but rather an attempt to address what I believe is the single most important issue facing Muslims today. we find ourselves victims of increasing suspicion and opposition from outside the community, and lack of self esteem and dignity from within.
the cohesiveness of the brotherhood is being corroded and a growing percentage of radicals are beginning to believe, perhaps in desperation and frustration alone, that the only answer is violence and extinguishing all non-Muslims in an attempt at world supremacy. worst of all, there are even factions attacking other Muslims whom they claim are infidels.
I would like to present what I believe are some practical ideas that can bring about a revival of Islam in the modern world and return it to a place of prominence.
first of all, any country which has a majority of Muslim citizens must be an Islamic state; it must implement Islamic law and economics. what message is sent to the rest of the world when Muslim countries themselves choose not to create an Islamic state and abide by Shariah?
second, existing Islamic states must correct any failures on their part of living up to their principles. within their boundaries, there must be no poverty, no corruption, no crime. Islamic states must be examples of perfection, free of error and above reproach.
third, Muslims who continue to live in countries as a minority of a certain significant percentage must become the ambassadors of Islam. they must be the means to educate non-Muslims and familiarize them with what it means to follow Islam. they will be making a great sacrifice in compromising their obligation to live under Shariah for a higher purpose. they must respect the authority of the government
where they live, yet be ready to refuse to comply with whatever is expressly forbidden by Islamic standards and accept the consequences for so doing. they must be carefully fulfilling the duties of tabligh in a discreet and sensitive way in order to foster understanding and respect. their duty is perhaps the hardest of all.
and fourth, Muslims who live as minority communities in countries which are either openly hostile or have shown unwillingness to tolerate or communicate, must leave and relocate. those who have not the means to do so must be helped by those who are financially able to share the expense. Muslims must take a stand for their beliefs and abandon those societies and ways of life that prevent them from living in an authentic manner. this not only leaves those who are bent on another path to make their own choices and reap their consequences, it tells the rest of the world that Muslims are first of all accountable to Allah. they may then live either in an Islamic state or as a minority among a tolerant society and join other Muslims in their own way by presenting an example of Islam to others.
as regards striving in the way of Allah, promoting and promulgating Islam is the foremost objective. if Muslims truly believe Islam is the best way of life for all humanity, then they would agree there is no need for violence. when given a clear demonstration of how it works, it will be sought after by everyone of integrity. in order for it to be readily accepted and embraced, the real need is for sincerity,
sacrifice and social reform. if we have faith in the divinity of the Islamic way of life, we need to exemplify that faith from the inside out. however, there is more that must be done where conflicts exist and persecution is an ongoing problem.
if any country openly persecutes Muslims, either within or without its borders, a state of war exists between that government and all Islamic states. it would be unfeasible to attack due to the risk of endangering its Muslim citizens and non-Muslims who are innocent. but there are other ways of waging war-economically for one. with the Gulf countries controlling most of the oil, they should be able to apply enough pressure to end persecution of Muslims worldwide.
and if within any country there are groups who use terrorist tactics against Muslims, either in or outside their own political borders, they must be identified and fought in all possible ways. they must be infiltrated and exposed to public condemnation. this would be a legitimate cause for the use of violence, but only as directed against confirmed enemy agents where there is no risk of endangering
if any non-Muslim government/state declares war against an Islamic state that has done it no wrong, all other Islamic states must join together to strengthen its defense. Similarly, if any Islamic state has declared war against a non-Muslim state for justifiable cause, all Islamic states must support its efforts in whatever way they are able.
and lastly, if any Islamic state goes against the tenets of Islam, then all Islamic states must take immediate action to correct it. ways this might be done are to sever political relations, publicly denounce its actions, exert economic pressure, and as a last resort, and only in the case of the crime of declaring war unjustly on any other country or persecuting any group of people, declare war against it.
there are a lot of loud voices from those who claim to be speaking for Islam but their words are in conflict with everything that defines Islam. the reason Islam is not the major influence in the world today is because no one sees it being applied as it is meant to be. in order to gain the respect it deserves from non-Muslims and Muslims alike, it must be first of all followed absolutely by Muslims the world
over. this is the responsibility of every Muslim, and there is a way for each of us to participate and take responsibility for change. being able to recognize one’s enemy is the first step towards defeating it. as is often the case, the enemy is inside rather than outside of us.we must conquer the divisiveness and hypocrisy and ignorance among us. that is the true jihad.
What Muslims want
The Constitution—or Islamic sharia law?
Here’s what Omar Ahmad, founder of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) believes:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America.”
“American Muslim leader urges faithful to spread word,” San Ramon Valley (CA) Herald, July 4, 1998.
Here’s what Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s Communications Director, believes:
“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future…”
Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 4, 1993
No wonder CAIR is fighting a desperate, and so far losing, battle against the co-authors of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Trying to Islamize America.
Jihad by demographics, outbreeding
From a Muslim (Sufi) leader in the U.K.
“The first and delightful command to the young Muslim men of Britain is this: finish with the lucrative trade of the Imams, I mean, the imported bride-market, and recognise that your strength lies in becoming the dominant presence inside a society that is in terminal decline. Marry out. Not only that, but take on the responsibility and generous gift of Allah, glory be to Him, to both men and women permitting families with from one to four wives.”

Muslims Criticize Al Qaeda For Waking Up Westerners To Muslim Immigration Jihad:
“Saudi preacher Sheikh Said al-Qahtani said on the Iqraa TV satellite channel, ‘We did not occupy the US, with eight million Muslims, using bombings. Had we been patient and let time take its course, instead of the eight million there could have been 80 million [Muslims], and 50 years later perhaps the US would have become Muslim.’
“But those same secular Westerners are not reproducing enough to replace their numbers while at the same time the Muslims are reproducing much more rapidly. Demography becomes destiny.”

[Excerpt] “One religious figure who appeared October 3 said Muslims have a duty to change America and to increase their numbers to 50% of the population from 2%. He recommended that Shariah, or Islamic law, be implemented in American courts.”
BY STEVEN STALINSKY October 19, 2006
Khutbah [Sermon] No. 37
“[…] O wise Muslims, the balance between increasing and decreasing human population is subject to Allah’s will, wisdom, estimation and to His knowledge.
As Allaah says, which means: “. . . And no female conceives, or lays down (her load), but with His knowledge. Nor is a man long-lived granted length of days, nor is a part cut off from his life but is in a book ….” (Fatir: 11). [35:11]
“[…] O Beloved brothers, if you want to know the truth about this, you should know that the high population of the weak and poor countries, especially the Islamic ones, terrifies them, as it has been clearly revealed in their documents. These documents indicate that overpopulation (of Islamic countries) threatens their interests and destroys their security. Included in what they have said, is that their countries’ icecaps melt under the heat of the sun due to the over population of ‘developing countries’. Some of them were more frank saying that, in the future, they will face the danger of “Islamization” (the spread of Islam). The calls of their writers and theorists have been so loud in warning of the imbalance of power between east and west, that they have announced that the productivity* of the Islamic countries is more than theirs by multiples, which will lead to the transition of power and authority within no more than a few decades, according to their estimations, statistics and percentages.
Yes brothers, their numbers and birth rates are decreasing so fast that they support families to increase the numbers of the new born. But this will not happen because they have legalized what Allah has prohibited, through His Messengers and His Books. They have legalized adultery, and homosexuality. Most of them become just one of two, either gay or lesbian.
Let those materialists be cursed and humiliated […]”
*i.e., birth rates.
From the Sunday Herald Sun [Australia]. (Excerpts below)
“And in a popular DVD selling locally, a foreign sheik exhorts Muslims to take control of Australia by out-breeding non-believers.
British-based Sheik Abdul Raheem Green forbade Muslims from having fewer than four children so Australia would become an Islamic state.
[...] Many CDs and DVDs there feature London sheik Abdul Raheem Green, who is on an Australian Government watchlist. On one he tells his audience to Islamise Australia through a Muslim baby boom.
“The birth rate in the Western countries is going down. People are more interested in their careers . . . they don’t want to have babies,” Sheik Green says in one DVD.
“So don’t you think, Muslim brothers and sisters, we’ve got a bit of an opportunity here? They’re not having babies any more. So what if, instead, we have the babies?
“In Canada one in three or one in four children being born is a Muslim.** What does that do to the demographic shift of a Muslim population in 20 years’ time?
“To say I’m going to have two or three children and that’s it — that’s not allowed. The way we overcome the people is through our numbers.””
Demographic Jihad, Part 2
“33 Id. According to Ayatollah Mutahari: “The specific task of women in this society is to marry and bear children. They will be discouraged from entering legislative, judicial, or whatever careers may require decision making, as women lack the intellectual ability and discerning judgment required for these careers.” Id

” [...] “Western countries have problems, and since they have a negative population growth, they are worried and scared that if our population grows we may dominate them,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a father of three, said Sunday, urging Iranians to have more children to boost the country’s population, local newspapers and news agencies reported
“[...]President Ahmadinejad said the West fears a high Iranian birthrate as some countries believe Iran “would eventually dominate them.”
“[...]“It is said that two children is enough. I oppose this,” he told legislators Sunday, according to the ISNA news agency. “Our country has a lot of capacities. It even has the capacity for 120 million people.”

Erdogan tells Turkish families to each have at least three children
“(ANSAmed) – ANKARA, NOVEMBER 17 – Experts disagree with Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan’s statements that each family in Turkey should at least have three children to overcome the adverse effect of the gradual decrease that will occur in the country’s growth rate over the next 30 years, daily Hurriyet writes.”
Excerpt from an article on Muslim demographics
If the west’s population is top-heavy, (i.e., the ratio of youth to elderly is low) that of Muslim populations is the opposite. For example, today more than half the population of Algeria is under the age of twenty and this situation is similar elsewhere. These young populations will reproduce and perpetuate the increase of Muslims on a percentage basis well into the next millennium.
North America and Europe have increasingly aging populations and one of the most disturbing social issues of the new millennium will concern a more efficient means of disposing of the elderly. (For example, witness the new euthanasia laws in the Netherlands, and the ongoing debate in many countries about this issue.) Medical advances can assure an average life span in the high seventies, although active life spans have not grown as fast. In the early 1900s, a westerner could expect to spend an average of the last two years of life as an invalid. Today, that figure is seven years. As Ivan Illich has shown, medicine prolongs life, but can not prolong mobility nearly as well. Aging populations with their increased healthcare costs are considered a more extensive socio-economic burden to society. For example, the UK Department of Health recently announced that a new prescription drug for Alzheimer’s Disease was available on the National Health Service – but its cost meant that it was only available to a small minority of patients.
An aging population tends to be introspective and sluggish, whereas a young population is more likely to be vibrant and energetic. This may or may not bode well for many countries and that will depend on whether their political structure is fragile or not.”
More Islamic triumphalism in Europe:
“We’re the ones who will change you,” Krekar told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in his first interview since an uproar broke out over cartoons deemed offensive to Muslims.
“Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes,” Krekar said. “Every western woman in the EU is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries are producing 3.5 children.
“By 2050, 30 percent* of the population in Europe will be Muslim.” Krekar, who’s been supported by the Norwegian government since arriving as a refugee from northern Iraq in the early 1990s, now faces deportation after violating the terms of his refugee status and being deemed a threat to national security.””

Analyst Predicts Muslim Majority in Russia Within 30 Years. By Meredith Buel
Washington (Feb 26, 2006). Link: voanews.com
“For 25 years Paul Goble worked for the U.S. government as an expert on minorities in the former Soviet Union.
He has been closely tracking what he describes as a huge demographic shift in Russia, a shift he says will have a major impact on the nation’s relations with western countries.
“Within most of our lifetimes the Russian Federation, assuming it stays within current borders, will be a Muslim country,” he said. “That is it will have a Muslim majority and even before that the growing number of people of Muslim background in Russia will have a profound impact on Russian foreign policy. The assumption in Western Europe or the United States that Moscow is part of the European concert of powers is no longer valid.”
Goble, currently the Vice Dean of Social Sciences and Humanities at Concordia-Audentes University in Tallinn, Estonia, says when the Soviet Union collapsed, most western countries looked at influencing Russia from a European perspective.
He says, however, Muslim countries viewed the opportunity for migration and the spread of Islam from the Caucuses or the newly created states in Central Asia.”
The article excerpts below summarize the population changes in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh
[Source: hvk.org; thanks to JW poster Infidel Pride]:
” [...] The census must also be viewed in the context of India’s neighbourhood. In 1941, Hindus and Sikhs jointly constituted 19 percent of present-day Pakistan, but fell to one percent by 2001. In 1941, Hindus were 29 percent of present-day Bangladesh, but declined to 18 percent in 1961, 14 percent in 1974, 12 percent in 1981 and 10 percent in 1991. Dhaka’s sustained ethnic cleansing of the past few years can only have accelerated this trend. The conclusion is inescapable: the region is being Islamized. This has obvious implications for national identity and security.”
Also from the article, India’s Hindu population has been declining while its Muslim population has been rising:
“Since [India's] independence, Hindus as a community have been declining in percentage terms. In 1951, Hindus comprised 85 percent of the population. By 1961 itself they had fallen to 83.4 percent; they were 82.7 percent in 1971 and 80.5 percent in 2001. In sharp contrast, the Muslim community stood at 9.7 percent of partitioned India’s population in 1951, but rose steadily to 10.7 percent in 1961, 11.2 percent in 1971 and 13.4 percent in 2001. The missing censuses of Jammu & Kashmir (1991) and Assam (1981) hardly detract from this trend.”

By the way, it’s not just CAIR leaders calling for the imposition of Islamic law in America. Here’s what Muzammil Siddiqi, former President of ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and a former leader of America’s MSA (Muslim Students Association), wrote in 1996:
“It is true that Islam stands for the sovereignty of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and Allah’s rules are not limited to the acts of worship, they also include social, economic and political matters…
We must not forget that Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction.”

And can we be so narrow as to just refer to jihad as a holy struggle—how moronic, and simple can we possibly be about the determinations of the dar al harb of which we are all confronting Mr. Brennan?
Here are just a few of the forms that jihad can take, no doubt you can think of others:
BOMBING JIHAD – The objective is not only to cause death and destruction, but also to force the kuffars to waste vast amounts of money and military manpower on security , thus furthering the Economic Jihad.
CENSORSHIP JIHAD – The Islamic belief system is primitive, tribal and illogical and cannot withstand the light of rational analysis. All criticism of Islam must be shut down especially within universities.
CONTAMINATION JIHAD – Jihadists contaminate food to be served to kuffars with their faeces and urine
CORRUPTION JIHAD – The objective is to undermine kuffar public confidence in institutions such as the police , medical profession and immigration service.
DEMOGRAPHIC JIHAD – The objective is for Muslims to gain power by breeding faster than other sections of the population. Muslim women are breeding machines who produce vast numbers of children, and now that polygamy has been legalised Muslim men are free to import up to four wives each.
EDUCATIONAL JIHAD – Muslims are seeking gradually to remove non-Islamic subjects from the school curriculum and to Islamify schools by introducing Muslim observances and revisions of history.
ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL JIHAD – The objective is to weaken the economies of kuffar nations and if possible get control of their major assets. Sharia finance requires kuffars to mortgage their countries’ infrastructure to Muslims.
HUMILIATION JIHAD – Islam is a culture obsessed with honor/shame and domination/subjugation. Islam will therefore look for any opportunity to degrade and humiliate the kuffars, such as the popular ‘jihad-snuff videos’ where kuffars are made to beg for their lives and then ritually slaughtered anyway.
IMMIGRATION JIHAD – Muslims are illegally swarming into Western Europe. Once established they bring in their very extended families by ‘chain-migration’ so that before you know it one Muslim has brought in his entire village.
INFILTRATION JIHAD – Similar to Corruption Jihad except that the objective is to infiltrate institutions in order to make them useful to Muslims.
INTIMIDATION JIHAD – Muslims are quick to take offence at the slightest provovation, even something so trivial as an ice cream wrapper. This makes the kuffar eager to appease their demands to avoid trouble. Of course appeasement only gives rise to further demands – give an inch and they’ll take a mile.
LITIGATION JIHAD – Offended Muslims are very keen to sue kuffars on the slightest pretext. The objective is not necessarily to win the case but to harass the kuffars and force them to spend vast amounts of money on their legal defence, eg the security-probing
Flying Imams who sued the passengers who reported their suspicious behaviour to the authorities, the
hijab-wearing Muslima who didn’t get the hairdressing job and Mark Steyn sued in a Canadian kangaroo court for telling the truth about Islam.
NARCO JIHAD – Muslims are the major suppliers of heroin. This trade supplies funding for jihad and helps destroy kuffar society. The drugs are also used to lure kuffar children into Islamic paedophile rings.
SEXUAL JIHAD – Rape and paedophilia are and always have been essential weapons in jihad. Kuffar women and children are booty to be enjoyed by their conquerors. Paedophile abductions of kuffar children by Muslim pimps have become commonplace.
STREET JIHAD – Young kuffar boys, usually alone or in small groups, are set upon and viciously attacked by much larger groups of older youths and men. These crimes are usually hushed up by the media eg Kriss Donald castrated, blinded and burned alive; Henry Webster skull smashed in three places and permanently brain-damaged, and many more only reported in the local press.
ISLAMISTS CANNOT WAGE all out war on the U.S. and expect to win. But they have a religious duty to try to wage jihad in some way and eventually conquer all countries, including the U.S. There are more devious ways to conquer than straightforward war, however. In the excerpt below, from an article by Anis Shorrosh, author ofIslam Revealed, shares what he sees as the Islamists’ 20-year plan to conquer the U.S. As you can see, many of these things are already being done.
1. Terminate America’s freedom of speech by replacing it with statewide and nationwide hate-crime bills.
2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities who promote Islam as the religion of African-Americans while insisting Christianity is for whites only. What they fail to tell African-Americans is that it was Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves. In fact, the Arabic word for black and slave is the same, ”Abed.”
3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.
4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office to bring about favorable legislation toward Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting.
5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the Internet as possible by buying the related corporations or a controlling stock.
6. Yield to the fear of the imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of America – black gold. America’s economy depends on oil and 41 percent of it comes from the Middle East.
7. Yell ”foul, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime, Zionist, un- American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran” anytime Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena.
8. Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with Islamists who can articulate a marvelous and peaceful picture of Islam. Acquire government positions and get membership in local school boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical field, research and pharmaceutical companies. (Ever notice how numerous Muslim doctors in America are, when their countries need them more desperately than America?) Take over the computer industry. Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect planners of Islamization in a discreet way.
9. Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via:
* Massive immigration (100,000 annually since 1961).
* Use no birth control whatsoever – every baby of Muslim parents is automatically a Muslim and cannot choose another religion later.
* Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them (10,000 annually). Then divorce them and remarry every five years – since one can’t legally marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in America.
* Convert angry, alienated black inmates and turn them into militants (so far 2,000 released inmates have joined al-Qaida worldwide). Only a few ”sleeper cells” have been captured in Afghanistan and on American soil.
10. Reading, writing, arithmetic and research through the American educational system, mosques and student centers (now 1,500) should be sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy. There are currently 300 exclusively Muslim schools in the U.S. which teach loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution. In January of 2002, Saudi Arabia’s Embassy in Washington mailed 4,500 packets of the Quran and videos promoting Islam to America’s high schools – free of charge. Saudi Arabia would not allow the U.S. to reciprocate.
11. Provide very sizable monetary Muslim grants to colleges and universities in America to establish ”Centers for Islamic studies” with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher-education institutions.
12. Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, seminars, local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam, when in truth, Islam hijacked the terrorists.
13. Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance towards Muslims in America who are portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries.
14. Nullify America’s sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize Americans with reports of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls.
15. Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not America’s justice system.
16. Open numerous charities throughout the U.S., but use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.
17. Raise interest in Islam on America’s campuses by insisting freshman take at least one course on Islam.
18. Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by Internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the faith and engender news in the media.
19. Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them by hook or crook.
20. Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the U.S. by spotlighting their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and ethic groups in America.

The Hadith of Bukhari gives all of the tactical details of jihad. A simple counting method shows that 3% of the hadiths are about the inner struggle, whereas, 97% of the hadiths are about jihad as war. So, is jihad the inner struggle? Yes, 3%. Is jihad the war against kafirs? Yes, 97%. (reference)
It is clear that talk of “the inner struggle” being “Jihad Akbar” is false. This is in keeping with the tenets and philosophy of taqiya. Thus, statements such as this are outright lies.
“There is the religious jihad, the greater jihad–the inner struggle against personal problems. The war jihad is the lesser jihad.”
The truth is far more unpalatable.
“Very little of the Koran is devoted to how to be a Muslim, the religion of Islam. Instead, the majority of the Koran is about kafirs, non-Muslims. Kafirs are the worst of the creation. Allah hates kafirs and plots against them. Kafirs can be tortured, murdered, robbed, raped and enslaved. The Koran is fixated on kafirs, as was Mohammed.”
What our forebears said about Mohammedanism:
Winston Churchill, written when he was a mere 24 years old:
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”
Or Lord Tebbit:
The Muslim religion is so unreformed since it was created that nowhere in the Muslim world has there been any real advance in science, or art or literature, or technology in the last 500 years – Lord Tebbit
Or William Eaton from 211 years ago:
Considered as a nation, they are deplorably wretched, because they have no property in the soil to inspire an ambition to cultivate it. They are abject slaves to the despotism of their government, and they are humiliated by tyranny, the worst of all tyrannies, the despotism of priestcraft. They live in more solemn fear of the frowns of a bigot who has been dead and rotten above a thousand years, than of the living despot whose frown would cost them their lives… The ignorance, superstitious tradition and civil and religious tyranny, which depress the human mind here, exclude improvement of every kind… – William Eaton, US Consul to Tunis, 1799
Or Andre Servier:
“Islam was not a torch, as has been claimed, but an extinguisher. Conceived in a barbarous brain for the use of a barbarous people, it was – and it remains – incapable of adapting itself to civilization. Wherever it has dominated, it has broken the impulse towards progress and checked the evolution of society.” – Andre Servier, 1922
And Theodore Roosevwelt from 1916:
“The Greeks who triumphed at Marathon and Salamis did a work without which the world would have been deprived of the social value of Plato and Aristotle, of Aeschylus, Herodotus, and Thucydides. 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 the 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. 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.” – Theodore Roosevelt 1916
And THIS from William Gladstone:
“They [Muslims] were, upon the whole, from the black day when they first entered Europe, the one great anti-human specimen of humanity. Wherever they went, a broad line of blood marked the track behind them, and, as far as their dominion reached, civilization disappeared from view. They represented everywhere government by forces opposed to government by law.” – William Gladstone – former British Prime Minister.
And A. Carlebach from 55 years ago:
“These Arab Islamic countries do not suffer from poverty, or disease, or illiteracy, or exploitation; they only suffer from the worst of all plagues: Islam.
“Wherever Islamic psychology rules, there is the inevitable rule of despotism and criminal aggression.
‘The danger lies in Islamic psychology, which cannot integrate itself into the world of efficiency and progress, that lives in a world of illusion, perturbed by attacks of inferiority complexes and megalomania, lost in dreams of the holy sword.
“The danger stems from the totalitarian conception of the world, the passion for murder deeply rooted in their blood, from the lack of logic, the easily inflamed brains, the boasting, and above all: the blasphemous disregard for all that is sacred to the civilized world…their reactions — to anything — have nothing to do with good sense.
“They are all emotion, unbalanced, instantaneous, senseless. It is always the lunatic that speaks from their throat.
“You can talk ‘business’ with everyone, and even with the devil. But not with Allah…
“This is what every grain in this country [eretz Israel] shouts. There were many great cultures here, and invaders of all kinds. All of them — even the Crusaders — left signs of culture and blossoming.
“But on the path of Islam, even the flies have died.
“We pile sin upon crime when we distort the picture and reduce the discussion to a conflict of border between Israel and her neighbors…The heart of the conflict is not the question of the borders; it is the question of Muslim psychology…..”.
Of course, these wise men of old would be regarded as racists and bigots by those nutty professors who do so much to weaken the West.

Islamic Science & Technology
The claim that ‘Islam encourages the development of science and technology’, is a classical example of Taqiyya , ie a statement which is known to be the opposite of the truth. If Islam is such an enlightened and modernistic religion, how is it that Muslims are so notably underrepresented among Nobel prize winners? Why does the Islamic educational syllabus consist of little else but rote memorization of the Koran and training for Jihad? ( MAD1, MAD2 ). Could it be because any familiarity with post-Copernican cosmology, or indeed with rational habits of thought in general, might lead even the most brainwashed madrassoid to question the divine origin of the Koran? ( SCI1, SCI2, SCI3, SCI4, SCI5, SCI6, SCI7, SCI8, SCI9, SCI10, SCI11.)
Islamic science and technology
Islamic backwardness in science has fortunately been a major benefit to civilization, for as Winston Churchill noted ‘ were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science – the science against which it had vainly struggled – the civilisation of modern Europe might fall’.
Churchill wasn’t referring to academic physics and chemistry, but rather to the practical applications such as the Maxim gun, which sent the Mahdi’s followers to paradise in such numbers that Allah had to introduce virgin-rationing.
Meanwhile, as the Mahdi’s martyred followers were getting to grips with their disappointments, back on planet earth in the Sudan, innumerable women and children were (for the best part of a century) spared violation, mutilation and slavery.
We must never forget Churchill’s warning. If the civilized world should ever lose its pre-eminence in science and engineering, then the primitive tribal forces of rape, pillage and fanaticism will prevail. Hitler was defeated by allied supremacy in aircraft design, radar and cryptography. Let us hope that science and technology will similarly prove decisive against the barbarians, as the developing clash of civilizations moves inexorably towards Armageddon.
Islam’s contribution to world culture – snuff movies and videos of beheadings.
Islam is an underachieving culture which has made no contribution to civilization for the past 500 years. This does not just apply to science and technology, but also to the arts. How many Muslim sculptors, painters, composers or dramatists can you name? The one exception to this general lack of creativity is the new cinematic genre of snuff-videos of Kafirs being beheaded, showing now at a mosque near you.

“Kill in a good way”
This is the verse which OBL used to instruct Mohammed Atta how to kill the air hostesses before crashing the hijacked airline into the WTC:
“Verily, Allah has enjoined excellence (ihsan) with regard to everything. So, when you kill, kill in a good way; when you slaughter, slaughter in a good way; so everyone of you should sharpen his knife, and let the slaughtered animal die comfortably.” (Sahih Muslim)
Islam commands the Muslims to practise Ihsan (excellence) in everything they do. Allah mentions in the Quran:
إِنَّ اللّهَ يَأْمُرُ بِالْعَدْلِ وَالإِحْسَانِ وَإِيتَاء ذِي الْقُرْبَى
“Verily, Allah enjoins Justice, and Ihsan and giving help to kith and kin” (Surah Al-Nahl: 90)
All the things that cause Muslim “extremism”- Hugh Fitzgerald
Martel Sobieskey/New Media Journal
One thing is certain, Islam is not a religion by anything Americans believe one to be – not even close. In fact, Islam is the antithesis of what we deem to be religious. Above all, Islam is a totalitarian political machine of blood thirsty conquest which zealously advocates the downfall of the U.S. government. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world…” because he was 100% non-political. In extreme contrast, Mohammed and the Koran bellicosely command your kingdom is my kingdom, surrender or die! Let’s be to the point. It is sheer madness, exceedingly irresponsible, criminally negligent, and strategically suicidal to continue granting religion status to an absolutely aggressive and implacable ideology that demands the destruction of our government and all other religions.
It is well past time, the truthful facts be told about Islam. Our leadership and intelligence community have lied and lied again, referring to Islam as a religion of peace. If Islam is to be categorized as a religion – then it must be called what it truthfully is – a religion of war. Unfortunately our leadership has become so inept, they have chosen to be in denial of this obvious fact, and entertain fanciful notions – that by calling a “blood thirsty tiger” a “bunny rabbit” it will magically transform into one.
This means, we now have America’s Sugar Plum Fairy National Security Policy: All of the Islamofascists can be won over by simply labeling them “friends”. How dare we even utter the word enemy, which might upset them. We now have a national security mantra: Islam is perfect! Islam is perfect! Islam is perfect!
The purpose of this article is to introduce that Islam’s religion status is undeserving, that it should never have been granted in the first place, and that its religion status should be immediately rescinded.
Why? Because Islam whether you call it moderate, militant, main stream, traditional or radical is a relentless foe inherently programmed to conqueror its host nation. Fail to understand this point and Islam will continue “trashing” civil liberties, shedding bloody pandemonium, wreaking havoc, litigating as warfare, demanding special privileges, and instigating anarchy until its host country suffers irreparable harm if not outright defeat. Such is the virulent modus operandi being used by Islam in England, Spain, India, France, Thailand, Holland, Bali, Lebanon, Denmark, Sweden, Philippines, Russia, America and elsewhere.
Perhaps, this is why Dr. Paul Williams author of “The Dunes of Doomsday” so truthfully and valiantly states in Chapter 1 “Refusing to Identify the Enemy”:
“The enemy is Islam. Not a fringe group within the body of believers…Not radical Islam as if a faction can be separated from the “mainstream” Islam. But Islam itself, as expressed by the life and teachings of Muhammad…”
An Imposter Religion
To put it bluntly Islam’s religion status should be rescinded because it is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a Trojan horse, an imposter religion that has arrived on our shore with malicious intent, deathly determined to replace our constitution with the Koran, and turn America into an Islamic nation controlled by Sharia law. Robert Spencer in his excellent book, “Stealth Jihad” (How Radical Islam Is Subverting America Without Guns or Bombs), explains how so-called moderate Islam is having greater success at invading America than its counterpart militant Islam. Shockingly, one may rightly conclude that America is now being conquered without Islam even having to fire a shot. Have we really become that docile, self complacent and pathetic? The answer is Yes!
The Sham of Moderate Islam
Does this mean that even so-called moderate Muslims are hostile to America? It certainly does. Moderate Muslims support the conquest of America with fervor equal to that of the militant Muslims. They cunningly play the role of the “good cop” in their good cop, bad cop charade deceiving we gullible Americans. In fact, the “two hands” of Islam aspire to choke the life out of America. One hand is called militant Muslims; the other hand is called moderate Muslims. These “two hands” work together, in their Koranically mandated asphyxiation pogrom, of strangling America into submission. This point cannot be overemphasized.
In 1974 Algerian President Boumendienne made a prophetic statement to the United Nations General Assembly:
“One day millions of men will leave the southern hemisphere of this planet to burst into the northern one. But not as friends. Because they will burst in to conquer, and they will conquer by populating it with their children. Victory will come to us from the wombs of our women.”
How accurately prophetic he was. Today, one can see no assimilation by Muslims in their host nations and they frequently exhibit open hostility turning entire cities into Moslem enclaves which the police are reluctant to enter. In addition, their birthrate is four times the European average creating a large cash deficient within the social welfare system. It is hardly an exaggeration to say, the Moslem immigration is like a “swarm of invading locusts” devouring everything in their path.
Dutch Politician Geert Wilders, having suffered firsthand the “devouring” of his nation by so-called moderate Islam, unflinchingly states in his article, “The Islamization of Europe”…“There is no Moderate Islam”. The United States, like all besieged western democracies, must heed Geert Wilders warning if they wish to protect themselves. Clearly, the safe harbor of religion status enables the “two hands” of Islam to launch clandestine raids upon their host nation, sapping at its vitals from within.
A Road to Hell
The severity of the moderate Islam invasion is thoroughly understood by Islamic experts like Amil Amani. In his article, “A Bridge to ‘Moderate’ Islam Is In Fact a Road to Hell.” He emphatically warns there is no such thing as moderate Islam and to call it so is an oxymoron, a contradiction. Specifically he states:
“Since moderate Islam is oxymoronic, any moderacy in Islam is in fact incompatible and in conflict with essential Islam, its power structure and its controlling proponents…Islam is not personally or spiritually relevant. It is political, which is why it may never separate itself from government. Adherence is not a matter of voluntary devotion, but of the law, and violators are severely punished, including capital punishment…”
Another enlightened expert who has personally witnessed that moderate Islam is a road to hell is Brigitte Gabriel. In her book, “Because They Hate” she gives a clarion call describing how the ruse of moderate Islam turned her home country of Lebanon into a “living nightmare.” She states:
“We were renowned for our hospitality, good heartedness, and generosity, just as America is known for the same qualities today. Sadly, those same qualities were the cause of our destruction…We did not realize that the intolerant Islamic side of our culture was gaining strength on the back of our western openness and pride in diversity.”
Most likely, Brigitte Gabriel would agree that providing religion status to Islam, believing main stream Islam to be moderate, was a major contributor to the destruction of Lebanon. The key point is that so-called moderate Muslims are as fiercely intolerant as militant Muslims, but are more skillful at concealing their agenda and deceiving their host nation until the time is right for them to strike. Brigitte Gabriel tells how usually peaceful Muslim neighbors who had befriended them for decades all of a sudden rose up to kill non-Muslims.
Such murderous intolerance is fully entrenched within Islam. The so-called moderates fully support these murderous attacks in their “hidden hearts”, rarely paying even lip service to the contrary. Their silence has been “deafening.” Why? Because they dare not challenge the inviolate precedents set by their prophet which would be a capital offense. For example, in 623 A.D. Mohammed was infuriated with the female poet Asma Bint Marwan for criticizing him, and sent his henchman to kill her and her five children. They ripped the infant from her breast and hacked it to pieces before her very eyes. They then made her watch the murder of her other four children, before raping and stabbing her repeatedly to death. After the butchery Mohammed told his henchman, “You have done a service to Allah and his Messenger.”
The killing of persons who criticize Islam has never abated and perhaps is even more alive today than in the 7th century. A few years ago in the U.S. an Egyptian Christian, his wife and two children had their throats cut for challenging Islam, mistakenly believing our free speech laws would protect them. Nearly every day one hears of some gruesome murder, decapitation, or other violent crime committed by contemporary Muslims who are emulating the example of their prophet.
The Heart War
99.9% of all Muslims have a deeply held secret agenda (wish) that Islam will conquer their host country and turn it into an Islamic nation such is their indelible religious conditioning. This obvious fact has been completely neglected, ignored, avoided and shunned by the leadership of western democracies to their great detriment, including America.
Fortunately we have one Islamic expert who is trying to awaken our leadership and his sleeping counterparts in the defense department and intelligence community. He is truly a “shinning star” and a person of insightful wisdom who should be promoted to the highest positions. Major Stephen Collins Coughlin has written a 333 page thesis entitled, “To Our Great Detriment”. On pages 171-175 he provides a quote that reveals the concealed heart of so-called moderate Muslims. The Caliph (Pope) of the Ottoman empire spelled out what has always been the irrefutable law for all Muslims without exception:
“The heart war – and that is the lowest form of the war. And it is that the Muslim should believe in his heart that the infidels are enemies to him and to his religion, and that he should desire their disappearance and the destruction of their power, And no Muslim can be imagined who is not under obligation to this degree of war. Verily, all the people of the faith are under obligation to this amount without any question whatever, in whatever place they may be…”
Permit me to make a grim prediction: Any country that continues to provide religion status to Islam believing that moderate Muslims will save the day has been “sucker punched” and is guaranteed to suffer great havoc and disruptive chaos. The proof is undeniable, look at the mayhem Islam has inflicted upon all western democracies over the past 20 years. The self destructive formula is simple: provide religion status to the sham of moderate Islam and your country will suffer great devastation.
Never before in human history has a nation’s leadership and intelligence community been so easily duped, confounded, played for fools, infiltrated and manipulated by enemy propagandists and apologists. Our leadership has become so pusillanimous in the face of Islamic bullying and brow beating, they have become their lackeys, aiding and abetting the invasion of the very nation they are suppose to protect. The situation is critical. The demoting of Islam’s religion status will turn the tide and send a clear-cut message to Islam that the dust of Allah is no longer befogging our vision enabling them to conqueror us.
From a reader:
Not all Muslims are evil; not all Muslims take control of jetliners and crash them into
buildings; not all Muslims routinely “circumcise” women so that pleasure will be denied
them; not all Muslims condone beheading or stoning; not all Muslims are taught/forced
to hate all non-Muslims but all Muslims who believe in the Koran must follow rules 1
through 34 in order to be considered a true believer, therefore in this instance, at least,
it appears only fair to say that if it looks like a pig, squeals like a pig, has a curly tail like
a pig, well it just has to be a pig, with all due respect to the animal kingdom.
Krauthammer’s “Take” on Islam and Wilders is the Wrong Take
Last May, I blogged about Charles Krauthammer’s fundamental ignorance of mainstream, classical Islamic Law—evident in a naïve column he wrote discussing Hamas’ “truce offer,” which was oblivious to over a millennium of Muslim jurisprudence, the precedent being Muhammad’s temporary “treaty” of Hudaybiyyah.
My essay from this Wednesday (3/10/10) , and another recent essay on the abuse of the terms “Islamism” and “Islamist” , and a piece (from 2/22/09) which clarified Geert Wilders’ arguments about a “Koran Ban” under existing Dutch Law, address Krauthammer’s latest uninformed, incoherent musings on Geert Wilders and Islam, which aired Monday evening (3/8/10) on Fox News.
Please see these replies to Krauthammer’s misguided remarks on Fox News by Mark Steyn, Paul Mirengoff, and Roger Simon, as well as these particularly trenchant rebuttals (here, and here) by my colleague Diana West.
And below are comments on Muslim attitudes, and Islam, including a remarkably prescient warning from 1925, which the author Aldous Huxley—who actually spent time living in Muslim North Africa—left for the seemingly impenetrable Krauthammer and his ilk to learn.
From Religion and Temperament (1948)
Mohammedanism…is hard, militant, and puritanical; it encourages the spirit of martyrdom, is eager to make proselytes, and has no qualms about levying “holy wars” and conducting persecutions. Some centuries after the prophet’s death it developed the Sufi school of mysticism—a school whose strict Islamic orthodoxy its theologians have always had some difficulty in defending.
From a Letter to Norman Douglas, June 26, 1925
One winter I shall certainly go and spend some [more] months there [in Tunisia], about the time of the date harvest—tho’ I have no doubt that the site of the Arabs picking and packing the dates would be enough to make one’s gorge turn every time one set eyes on that fruit for the rest of one’s life. How tremendously European one feels when one has seen these devils in their native muck! And to think that we are busily teaching them all the mechanical arts of peace and war which gave us, in the past, our superiority over their numbers! In fifty years time, it seems to me, Europe can’t fail to be wiped out by these monsters. Intanto…
From “In a Tunisian Oasis” (1936)
Talking to an Islamically educated Arab is like talking to a pious European of the fourteenth century. Every phenomenon is referred by them to its final cause—to God. About the immediate causes of things—precisely how they happen—they seem to feel not the slightest interest. Indeed, it is not even admitted that there are such things as immediate causes: God is directly responsible for everything. “Do you think it will rain?” you ask pointing to menacing clouds overhead. “If God wills,” is the answer. You pass the native hospital. “Are the doctors good?” “In our country,” the Arab gravely replies, in the tone of Solomon, “we say that doctors are of no avail. If Allah wills that a man die, he will die. If not, he will recover.” All of which is profoundly true, so true, indeed, that is not worth saying. To the Arab, however, it seems the last word in human wisdom. For him, God is the perfectly adequate explanation of everything; he leaves fate to do things unassisted, in its own way—that is to say, from the human point of view, the worst way.
It is difficult for us to realize nowadays that our fathers once thought much as the Arabs do now. As late as the seventeenth century, the chemist Boyle found it necessary to protest against what I may call this Arabian view of things. “For to explicate a phenomenon,” he wrote, “it is not enough to ascribe it to one general efficient, but we must intelligibly show the particular manner, how that general cause produces the proposed effect. He must be a very dull inquirer who, demanding an account of the phenomena of a watch, shall rest satisfied with being told that it is an engine made by a watchmaker; thought nothing be declared thereby of the structure and coaptation of the spring, wheels, balance, etc., and the manner how they act on one another so as to make the needle point out the true time of the day.”
The Arabs were once the continuators of the Greek tradition; they produced men of science. They have relapsed—all except those who are educated according to Western methods—into pre-scientific fatalism, with its attendant incuriosity and apathy. They are the “dull inquirers who, demanding an account of the phenomena of a watch, shall rest satisfied with being told that it is an engine made by a watchmaker.” The result of their satisfaction with this extremely unsatisfactory answer is that their villages look like the ruins of villages, that the blow-flies sit undisturbedly feeding on the eyelids of those whom Allah has predestined to blindness, that half their babies die…
