When it comes to the crunch, Muslims will follow Muhammad

The Extreme Moderates of Islam

Peter Smith Quadrant Online 19th November 2018

Case one: Hassan Khalif Shire Ali drove a truck loaded with gas bottles into Melbourne’s CBD on November 9. After the vehicle became engulfed in flames, Ali attacked passers-by with a knife. He killed café bar owner Sisto Malaspina, 74, and wounded two other men.

Scott Morrison said that the Islamic community must do more to stop extremism. “For those who want to stick their head in the sand, for those who want to make excuses, you are not making Australia safer. You are giving people an excuse to look the other way and not deal with things right in front of you … If there are people in a religious community, an Islamic community, that are bringing in hateful, violent, extremist ideologies into your community, you’ve got to call it out.”

Australia’s Grand Mufti, Ibrahim Abu Mohamed sharply rebuffed Morrison. “This bloody Prime Minister, instead of turning the heat on somebody else, he should answer us about what he did. He has spent billions of dollars — billions — on security services. And what is the end result? We have crazy people in the streets.”

Since 9/11, the Religion of Peace website records 34,150 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks. Over forty since the Melbourne attack. Lots of crazy Muslims around the world apparently.

Case two: Asia Bibi, a Christian, is in hiding in Pakistan after being acquitted of blasphemy. New prime minister Imran Kahn, you might recall he used to play the civilised game of cricket, has refused, under pressure of the rabid Islamic mobs, to let her leave the country pending a review of her acquittal. Her lawyer has already sensibly skedaddled. She spent eight years on death row, despite the intercession some years’ ago of Pope Benedict XVI, who, for his trouble, was sharply rebuffed by Pakistan’s prime minister at the time, Yousuf Raza Gilani.

In 2011, the governor of the Punjab, Salmaan Taseer, was assassinated by one of his police bodyguards. His ‘sin’ was opposing the blasphemy laws which had resulted in Bibi facing execution. The assassin was celebrated by the aforementioned mobs. Reportedly the British government has refused to offer Bib asylum in case it causes unrest among the same kind of mobs which now inhabit Britain.

What have these two quite disparate cases got in common? Yes, they have Islam in common; but it is more than that. They have in common a rejection of Enlightenment values; of civilised values. We like to pretend that differences can be worked through and resolved, but they can’t between people who have quite different value systems. Scott Morrison is whistling in the wind as was Pope Benedict.

Of course, we have a common assumption among our great and good that most Muslims are peaceable. Very few would ever think of terrorism. That is true. At the same time, it is a meaningless consolation.

Unfortunately, no matter how refreshing is some political comment on Islam, and Morrison’s was probably better than we have yet seen in Australia from a political leader, it will never go to the point. It will always be couched in terms of radical Islamists surrounded by all those vast numbers of peaceable Muslims who we need on our side to dob in the extremists.

Listen to conservative commentators. They all sing from the same songbook. There are a small minority of extremists and a vast majority of moderates. Common-sense died decades ago.

It’s as though large disparate populations of people could sustain fourteen centuries of the most godawful conquest, pillaging, violence, enslaving and butchery by just happening, by accident, to always have a small coterie of those rascally radicals within their midst. Someone in power in the West needs to get to the bottom of it. Let me help.

All Muslims are followers of an immutable canon which warps their minds and incites supremacism. True, many Muslims don’t read it or know what’s in the Koran and hadiths but, nevertheless, they anchor and inform their culture. Without it they are effectively in no-man’s-land. When it comes to the crunch, they will come home to Muhammed.

What to do about it? The only thing that can be done is to keep the problem outside the gates. There is no other remedy. Everything else is futile. Unfortunately, the gates have already been well and truly breached.

Still, closing them tight now is better than doing nothing. Will that happen? No, almost certainly not. Welcome to a giant civilisational suicide pact.

They have standards!

Most people are unaware of the consequences of the illegal mass immigration into Europe that lead to the changing face of Europe.
There are Western countries that do not even acknowledge that there is a lack of integration within the immigrant communities.
The Western world must close the borders before it is too late.

    Thanks to Robert Spencer to suggest some peace in the world. (and end “Islamophobia”)

    Muslim individuals and Muslims groups need to:

    1. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

    2. Renounce definitively, sincerely, honestly, and in deeds, not just in comforting words, not just “terrorism,” but any intention to replace Western constitutions (or the constitutions of any non-Muslim state) with Sharia even by peaceful means. In line with this, clarify what is meant by their condemnations of the killing of innocent people by stating unequivocally that non-Muslim civilians, including Israelis, are innocent people, teaching accordingly in mosques and Islamic schools, and behaving in accord with these new teachings.

    3. Teach, again sincerely and honestly, in transparent and verifiable ways in mosques and Islamic schools, the imperative of Muslims coexisting peacefully as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis, and act accordingly.

    4. Begin comprehensive international programs in mosques all over the world to teach sincerely, and again transparently, against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic supremacism.

    5. Actively and honestly work with Western law enforcement officials to identify and apprehend jihadists within Western Muslim communities.

      1. as the heading says:


        or koran or the hadiths or their imams

  2. Paranoid masochism and the hypocrisy required to cover it up is what defines psychopathy: First, the paranoia: you falsely and slanderously assert that everyone else is always out to get you, which choice “makes” (lets) you feel like a helpless victim all the time (self-inflicted masochism) which then lets one create false, hypocritical scenarios of NOT-blaming others, as long as they agree to go along (with your criminal lies) to get along (with you, the extortive criminal) in agreeing that you’re a perpetually helpless victim, “too.” So as long as everyone else in your newly-formed victim-identity gang also agrees that everyone else in the gang is an equally-helpless fellow victim, they get to avoid being labelled as part of the oppressor group you can now all vilify and extort (as “intolerant hateful racist bigot infidels,” etc.)!

    Islam simply takes this common human failing to the next level, giving it the imprimatur of deity as exemplified by The Perfect Example of Humanity for All Mankind, the prophit, Dirty Old Moe himself!

    And, while all criminals are hypocrites and vice-versa, not all criminals are gangsters (but it’s very unusual for them to not at least show a token support for one or more other criminal victimal gangs, as a sort of insurance excuse, just in case)!
