Only a God Can Save Us Now

Sympathetic, indifferent or corrupt, non-Muslims facilitate the march of Islam.

Those of us who believe that Islam is a “religion of peace” that desires to live in harmony with the West and is comprised mainly of “moderates” who pose no danger to our way of life are living in a fool’s paradise. Despite its bloody sectarian divisions, Islam is strong, durable, belligerent and determined to impose its faith-based imperium upon an infidel world through one or another form of jihad. Violent jihad is the child of short-term thinking; stealth jihad is an expression of long-term planning. The only difference between the incendiary and the vanilla, the “extremist” and the “assimilated,” is patience, for both adhere to the tenets and commands of the Koran and the Sunnah. “Moderates,” whether they know it or not, keep the faith intact, maintaining its longevity and social status; their militant brethren profit from both the informal and official approval that “moderation” ensures, staking out the terrain in which the radicals are able to operate unhindered. As I’ve written before, moderation is the sea in which the sharks swim. (The British website Liberty GB features a sober and persuasive article, “Ten Reasons Why Moderate Muslims Are Not the Answer,” which should be consulted by those who believe they are.)

A keynote speaker at the October 2013 Islamic Peace Conference in Oslo, addressing an audience of several hundred ordinary Muslim citizens, repeatedly made the point that “normal” Muslims hold to the same Koranic principles mandating abhorrent  punishments as do the “extremists,” concluding that this cultural and scriptural contiguity somehow proves that normal Muslims are not extremists. Go figure! What he actually succeeded in showing is that Islam is Islam and not the innocuous doppelgänger we ludicrously wish or assume it to be. It is from its very origins a conquering religion that has never ceased throughout its more than 1400 year history to pursue its constitutive and self-defining aims. Like the tide, it has advanced and receded many times over, but it is now poised to complete an inundation from which we in the West may not recover. And we have only ourselves to blame.

There are, broadly speaking, five categories of individuals who refuse to take the Islamic threat seriously or who claim that no such credible threat even exists, namely: (1) overt or covert sympathizers and allies; (2) those who have been bought off with fees, perquisites or substantial gifts of money or donations to a cause or institution; (3) those who feel secure and protected, imbued with a “gated community” mindset, convinced they are exempt from any possible menace (no mosque will ever be built in their neighborhoods); (4) those who have been intimidated into keeping a low profile; and (5) the indifferent or ignorant, the low information — no information majority uninterested in or oblivious to the wider issues that impinge upon the health of the culture or the well-being of society.

Such attitudes bear an uncanny resemblance to the prognosis spelled out for Western civilization in the cataclysmic vision of Oswald Spengler’s The Decline of the West. As historian H. Stuart Hughes explained in his study of Spengler’s thought, a new “Caesarism” or tyranny will proclaim itself in our time, “while the mass of mankind will look on in bewilderment, apathy or resignation, ready to accept without question” their depressing fate. “A new primitivism will begin to pervade all human activity [and men] will be ready to believe anything,” as part of a “second religiosity” that Spengler foresees.

What is so surprising about this? We as a nation are wrapped up in our electronic heroin - facebook - twitter - 24/7 pablum news 'shows' - talk radio etc etc - ipads ipods and iphones etc - and few mentioning the threat that islam is to us. When have you ever heard of anyone on the right or the left warning us of these dangers? Rush? Never heard him talking about this - Hannity? No. O'Reilly? He'll never see the threat in time - and working for a network with a minority owner (9% IIRC) that is a Saudi national thats never going to happen.

I'll email everyone in my address book a link to this article. I'll send this to my 40 year old daughter - she'll probably call me up to bit*h me out for sending her anything disparaging islam. She's done that before but it doesn't stop me from doing it. Funny thing - I sent her some emails that disparaged Christians a while back - never heard a word out of her! The progressives in Seattle have done their job well - brainwashing my daughter - someone I taught to think for herself and they've overcome that training! I guess the 'force' is strong in them.

Such is the state of the United States! A long slow decline is ahead and few seem to know - and fewer yet seem to care. I'll be dead before that happens - hopefully.

Well written David - grim but true. We are probably doomed.

Islam does not teach the same sort of compassion for the other that virtually every other religion including today's "secular humanism" teaches. Muslims murder and torture each other without compunction and their own ummah, "brotherhood" has no condemnation to offer. That's because they don't value individual human life the way Christian westerners do. It's not a concept in Islam, which means it's not a concept in Muslims "hearts and minds". Their hearts and minds instead understand what Allah teaches them in the Koran, namely, the Collective Will to Power.

When will our leaders understand this? And moreover understand that it is necessary in the end to treat Muslims in the way they themselves understand moral principles? Which ultimately means that they must be beaten back and vanquished and humiliated by a greater strength. That is clearly what they understand. Every move to win their hearts and minds only strengthens them, emboldens them to advance their own peculiar ethics of the world, which couldn't give a damn about "hearts and minds", as we understand the term. They will accept the shehada from anyone they can swindle and connive to recite it while at the same time are willing to kill anyone who leaves Islam. Whatever it takes to build the army of Islamic soldiers is what their ethics is about.

There is no way of avoiding the reality that the adults in this world are going to have to act like adults and step up and slap, and in a big way, Muslims who have made of their own societies the equivalent of "Lord of the Flies" and who now threaten to overrun every more advanced society with their mayhem. We're going to have to come to terms with this reality. Either that or it's simply going to be cruel for all of us, with no kindness in sight, and possibly no one left to come and rescue us off an Island from Hell that in our passivity and cowardice we allowed to be taken over by moral pygmies.

"Radical Muslim" is redundant.

Only a fool or someone who is intentionally ignorant or someone who is brain-washed or someone who is a liberal—wait, the word “liberal” is a synonym for each of the first three categories—does not realize that Islam is at war with America. Actually, they are at war with the world. They know that if America falls, the rest will too. Any Muslim who is not a strong believer in Jihad is the same as a lukewarm (or fake) Christian. He is not following what his Book says.

For the past 30 years, Europe has allowed itself to be infiltrated and infested
with Muslims, because of very lax immigration laws and political correctness.
And now this infestation is coming to America.
In twenty years, there will be enough Muslims in America, who along with
their stealth jihadism will have enough voting power to place Muslims into
local, state and federal government. And it will only get worse from there.
We shall need more than a God to save this once great nation.
We shall need a spiritual, patriotic 21st Century American Revolution.
Good luck, America.

I despair as well David. But eventually things will come to a violent head, and European Christendom will chose existence over annihilation. Woe be to those enemies of European Christendom....because the old order of Diversity and Mutlicutluralism will be over and the plethora of minority groups who road the Left to power and brought this misery upon European Christendom will find that they wont be rewarded for their treachery.

Without going through each and every consequential error, Islam is not faith-based and, is not a religion: although it operates under an ostensible appearance of religiosity, it fulfills each aspect of the definition for a pagan, criminal ideology: not in any way is Islam faith-based; for, the Moslem accepts that, he is to die and at that time, beg the Allah character for a lifetime of forgiveness and acceptance, but yet, to not know what Allah's whim of that moment might be.
Also, not in the slightest is Islam constituted in doctrines which may be inquired into, nor does it suffer individual interpretation or application, but rather, it is perpetuated by constraint through patterns of conduct which are forced upon the unknowing neophyte; then, exactly as any batch of paganism interprets all things to resolve upon corporeal conclusions, as the ancients did in using phallic models for gate handles for example, in the idea of the 42 virgins as reward for martyrdom, or also, upon the fact that, the Allah character is attracted to the sound of the Moslem's voice in the chants, Islam also, is of pagan delight—it is but one of many such pagan ideologies.

As an aside, the Mormon doctrine which says: “As you are, G0D once was; and as G0D is, so you will be.” is but one of their teachings which show The Latter Day Saint group as constituted in a return to pagan ideology for source material, instruction and conclusion.

And further, to sum in a word, a pagan ideology cannot undergo reformation because, the constituent element--corporeal existence being the sum of all things, but that being eliminated, the actualizing entirety of the thing itself would be dissolved, . . . it would be no more.

In the silent atrocity of child-brides, in the foolish and weak-minded nonsense proffered concerning why they must cover the women from head-to-toe, in their allowance of violence upon women, and in lack of punishment upon a woman having been forced, because, “Satisfaction for a man is a woman’s duty”, Islam involves and maintains itself in institutionalized sensuality.

But for all this and more, my question would be: In it’s cruelty, the more mature among them teaching mayhem and suicide to their own children, in chopping and hacking heads and hands off, burying alive, stoning, throwing acid—and, done under the rubric of a so-called sense of honor—appearing most clearly described as self-actualizing invention by bad men and for the use and caprice of bad men; in Moslem nations’ inbreeding from the practice of 1st cousin marriage—as one study from Denmark shows—producing triple the rate of birth defects, and low IQ conjoint with emotional instability so that, Islam can exist only as parasitic upon larger and whole societies, that or else—as with any criminal enterprise—immediately must it descend into grinding poverty, . . . But just when there shall have been sufficient record of criminal and otherwise anti-social activity and mayhem, the world round, to have the nasty thing recognized in law as criminal / terrorist—assets seized, wiretaps, etc., the damnable thing stomped out, every mosque an ash pit no less than five feet deep, so that, as the prophecy goes, the False Prophet shall then have been cast into The Lake of Fire—you know, do our part to make the world safe for freedom of choice, and for women and children—but when?

Islam would not be prospering in the West except for the Fifth Column---our glorious elites, specially those of the Left. Neither Islam nor the Left has any moral code that is binding. The Islamic concept of 'taqqiya' is common to both In short, the Democratic Party, its allies and clients, is the greatest threat to the survival, they very existence of our country and any semblance of civilization. It is them or us. Will a Crusade against both Islam and the Left ne necessary? I cannot now see any alternative. Deus lo vutt!

the West as we have known it in recent history is probably doomed.

Boy, I was feeling pretty good today until I logged in and see that Solway is up to his old tricks of telling the truth and the like.

I wonder how Robert Spencer sleeps at night. He knows what Solway writes about here better than anyone alive. Does he stare at the ceiling and fret, or does he let out a sigh of resignation and doze off?

Well, if the worst does happen, and the United States is taken over by a totalitarian Islamic Government, then there's always the option to fight to the death, because dying on your feet is still better than living on your knees.

The 2nd Amendment (and the unalienable right to self defense which it confirms) , also, will be both necessary and of great assistance. Semper Fi.
