You Cannot Speak With Allah
In light of what is happening in our world today, here is an article written in 1955, which is a photograph of reality and prophecy. Then there was no PLO, no Al Qaeda or “radical Islam” …there was and there is Islam, which has not changed since and will never change. Attaching names and attempts to divide the Moslems to moderates and extremists simply humorizing the Muslims! And that Dr. Azriel Carlebach analyzed with clarity and sharpness and incredible insight of the reality and what the future holds in store. No further word is necessary.
Dr. Azriel Carlebach (7 November 1909-12 February 1956) was a journalist and publicist in the time of the Yishuv, prior to the establishment of Israel, and in the early days of the state of Israel and served as the editor of the newspaper Yediot Aharonot and later founder and was the first editor of the newspaper Ma’ariv.

“It is not the matter of borders the source of the conflict between us and the Arabs, rather the Islamic psychology. The Arabs are the sons of Islam, and with it, along the concept of the worldview, you cannot talk. With Islam you do not live next door in peace.”
Clear and simple truth is that between the Moslem world and the culture of the Western world there is not one common word, and there was not and could not be any understanding. This does not aim at religion, that any religion can be good or bad, according to what its believers will fulfill or overlook its moral principles. It means the influence of Islam on the society life, the sense of the world and the relationships with all other people.
… Fifty – sixty generations one after another were educated in Islam to rape the human nature – not to use the power of thinking, no tot want individual rights, not to lust, not to demand, not to stand tall. In the Moslem world the dim will rules, the dark, the unexplained of Allah. A pedantic and capricious ruler, hidden and sickening …this is the core of the Islam religion – not to ask. A person undertakes this faith in what he says: Allah el Allah”, not in what he is convinced from an idea, but in what he accepts for himself as a tyrant.
Such faith by its very nature cannot be spread through intellectual persuasion or supreme moral, this is the work of the mind and body – and can only be distributed by physical force. And therefore they need to wage a constant holy war against the “non-believers” and bring them into the fold of the right faith with the force of the sword of el-Islam-Allah that loves blood … Never there is greater danger in itself, but the finger on the trigger. And a small bomb in the hands of one madman can destroy an entire philosophers’ Community.
The danger for the West that is buried in Islam is vastly greater than that of Communism. Because within the Communist religion there are multiple educated nucleus than within the Muslim religion. With Communism one can talk about the basics of give and take, because of its materialism it considers also reality, measuring forces, formulating requirements, considers proposals according to feasibility.
All these data do not exist in Islam. Muslims had never agreed on anything, whatever it is, even among themselves … and they cannot materialize anything – not only in the matters concerning Israel; the entire mighty Muslim world could not make an agreement on one common postage stamp. Their reactions – on anything – have no relevance to common sense. They are all emotional lacking calculation, transient, baseless … with all you can talk “business”, even with the devil, but not with Allah …
… We did – and continue doing, unforgiveable and silly mistake, if we help the world to paint in front of it Arabs who do not exist at all and who are our the wishes of our imagination. And we add insult to injury when we distort the image and reduce the argument of the border conflict between Israel and her neighbors.
Above all – it is not compatible with reality. Not a matter of the borders is the source of the conflict, but Islamic psychology. If our neighbors were Westerners, if they were Protestants – long ago we would have lived with them in peace as the Norwegians and Swedes do. Or if they were even Catholics – our relationship could have worked out the way they had between the French and the English in Canada, and in many South American countries among themselves. But here we are trying for fifty years, in all the possible ways to reach dome kind of an agreement, and never appeared on the horizon even as a shadow of hope – which means that the matter does not lie in the actions and the facts and fears.
It lies only in the fact that the Arabs are sons of Islam. And with them, in our worldview, you cannot talk. No matter who, no matter what, with Islam you do not live next door in peace.
And besides – presenting the problem as a conflict between two similar sides equips the Arabs with weapons of argument that is not theirs. If the argument with them is really political, then there it cuts both ways. Then we appear as who had come to a land that was all Arabic and we occupied it and have put ourselves as a wedge, and we loaded on them refugees, and we pose danger to them with our military, etc., etc. – and a person can justify one side or another. In other words, in this play, rational and political problem, it becomes understandable to the European minds – against us.
The Arabs claim claims that are even acceptable by Western opinion in an ordinary legal battle. But in reality, who knows better than us, that this is not the source of their hostile position. All these political and social concepts are never their concepts.
Conquest by the sword, in their eyes, in the eyes of Islam, is not at all wrong; contrary, it is considered privilege and proof of superior ownership. Concern for refugees, dispossessed brothers is not in their thoughts, Allah expelled, Allah will take care.
A Muslim politician never for excited about such (unless catastrophe endanger his personal status). And if not for the occupation and if not for the refugees – they would have opposed to us just in the same effect. About what we debate with them based on Western concepts – we dressed savages with European justice gown. And that way – instead of alarming the nations of the world, we anesthetize them.
This is the basic of our mistake, and in my opinion, the secret of out isolation and failures.
That we, we cry about the stab in our flesh – not the abyss that is open for peace in the world. That we ask for a bandage for the bite we suffered, and we do not warn: Here rotates between all your legs a mad dog!
Parable what is it like? – If, when Hitler came to power, we would have said that he is indeed the case of anti-Semite, but usually he is the founder of wise and respected religion that one must not fear it – and our hands are extended to him in peace, and then, we desire to arrange between us the private petty accounts, and thereafter contact him for peace covenant with him, help him to develop his teachings and spread his influence …
We are sinners not only in our struggle, the existence of this country and the lives of our sons and daughters, we are sinners to the entire world if we do not address the simple truth, that lies in the heart of all of us, including the Government spokespersons, when they call statements of peace – the truth is that the enemy is the spirit of Islam.
Islam is not only our enemy because we are sitting here by incident. It is our enemy even if we sat in the north Pole. Because it is the enemy of all free people. It is the enemy of fertile mind, all good heated initiative, every creative idea. It is the archenemy of every Jew, every Christian – and every Muslim. All of which will be put in his hand, whether a wooden sword or steel tank, or water pitcher – becomes a threat to fellow human being.
It did not ever contribute or will contribute anything for good; it did not produce even one human image that marched the world forward, in any field whatsoever; it is the darkness, the reaction, it is the prison to 500 million tortured people, it is the landmine, the inherent obstacle to peace the world.
So long we do not make effort and instill in the free world’s mind this knowledge – we will always be the first victims of our lack of knowledge.
YOU CANNOT SPEAK WITH ALLAH: DR. AZRIEL CARLEBACH (1909-1956) A PRESCIENT COLUMN FROM 1955***** SEE NOTE PLEASE
But wait, there’s more:
A. Carlebach about 70 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.
My own is this:
Arabs, (Muslims) are not the sons of the desert. Arabs are the fathers of the desert.
