Islam Needs an Intervention

September 22nd, 2013 - 10:21 pm

So back to the question of how to stage this intervention.  This is extremely difficult, but I am going to take a flyer with some suggestions. I invite all to respond.  (And, yes, I know, rounding up all the Muslims in the world for an intervention like your Cousin Phil is a tad inconvenient, but think metaphorically.)

1. Most importantly, start being honest.  Say that Islam itself is the cause of all this atrocious violence and must be corrected, must have a fundamental reformation of the religion. Keep talking about the reformation — keep demanding it of them — all the time.  Why have you not joined the modern world?  Why do you oppress women? Urge them to reform and never stop.  No more euphemisms about “religion of peace” or “work place violence.”  If you kill for Allah, you are evil, immoral and sick.  You don’t kill for anybody’s God.

2.  Make clear that Sharia law is absolutely incompatible with democratic U.S. values. We will not have it here because it is fundamentally misogynistic and intolerant of other religions, against many of the principles of our Constitution. Ban it in the USA.  If you want Sharia law, stay in an Islamic country. Do not come here.  In other words, force Islamic law to change if they want entry to this country.

3. Set up special schools in American values for Muslim children who do come.  Make them listen to American Constitutional values and explain to them why freedom of religion and equal rights for women are not only important, but essential.

4.  Speak publicly against multiculturalism. All cultures are clearly not the same.  Some are repressive.  Islam is repressive and intolerant of others.

5. Ban the use of the veil as they have in France.  The oppression of women is not permitted in America.

6. Treat the Muslim Brotherhood as what they are — an Islamofascist organization, not an incipient democratic one. Organizations like that will never change if you believe, or play along with, their lies.

6. Take foreign policy out of the hands of the State Department, which simply enabled the situation we have today, and start a new outreach organization willing to tell the truth.  (Yes, I realize this last one will take an intervention on our own government, but I warned you, this wasn’t simple.)

Obama has only one response to Islamic terror: it doesn't exist.

He holds that it's: 1) the work of extremists not jihadists; 2) workplace violence; 3) lone individuals, not real Muslims; 4) just something Bush caused, Blame him!

So, I expect Rouhani to get th glad-hand from Obama!

An "intervention" -- ? Surely you jest, Mr. Simon. Islam is wholly founded on precepts of violence and enslavement in the name of God. That's not a minor cognitive or perceptual error that can be cleansed from an otherwise organically sound entity. It's core rot. It demands complete extirpation, and given a few more provocations, that's what it will receive.

"Islam Needs an Intervention"

You may need an intervention; I may need an intervention; Islam needs to be utterly destroyed.

Mr. Simon, it appears that you do not know the truth about Islam. There is no help for Islam, it cannot be reformed; total destruction of Islam is the only answer. Nuke Mecca, and nuke Tehran. Do it today. Forcibly deport anyone claiming to be a Muslim, and any immigrants from Islamic countries. Do it today!

Not an intervention, because they do not want to reform. There will be no reformation until they are staring into the abyss. Even then, they may not reform.

We must defeat them. How do we do that without killing a billion people? We isolate them as far as possible. We buy their oil from them as necessary, but go full speed ahead developing all non-Muslim energy resources. As a previous commenter said, when the oil runs out they are finished. The only thing that makes terror attacks possible for them is the oil money. Run them out of oil and attack their financing nets wherever we can. Stop any migration to the West. No foreign aid. If they attack us, we hit them quickly and put maximum hurt on the countries the attackers came from. Outlaw sharia law and shut down any mosques where violent jihad is preached. The Western world is based on tolerance, trust, and free trade. Islam is totally incompatible with that. It has no place in the West unless it can reform, which I see no chance for.

Those Muslim countries without oil are economic basket cases. Look at Egypt. They can't even feed themselves. That will be the condition of all those Muslim dominated countries when the oil runs out.

Yes, it will take a long time. 25 years, maybe longer. Remember that's what we did with the USSR and China. Isolated them (actually they isolated themselves) and let them go broke. It took 40 years, but it worked.

Remember way back when Ann Couter suggested that the best way to deal with Islam, was to conquer all the Muslim lands, and forcibly convert them to Christianity. All "our betters" were horrified and lost no time in telling the world how "wrong" she was to even suggest that. Odd she doesn't seem so "wrong" now. Since the Muslims are so in love with jihad, I think it's time we held one in the opposite direction. Think of what would happen if they held a terrorist attack at a mall in Virginia, say outside of the Naval Base at Norfolk. Are you willing to bet on the discipline of a "boomer" crew that finds out the families have just been wiped out?

The recommendations in this article make sense. But I dont buy the we are the brothers keeper and we must intervene idea. We tried that in Iraq and Afganistan. It cost us immense blood and treasure, and they both ended up mostly hating us. Its not our job to civilize them, they must civilize themselves. I would use the concept of coventry. What it means is we place them outside the realm of civilization, and dont deal with them unless they attack us, no commerce, no foreign aid, no cultural contact. No immigration from their nation allowed unless the immigrants are willing to publically state that they renounce jihadist Islam, sharia law, and any other offensive traditions of that nation. And if they attack us, then we attack back twice as hard. If they ask why we do this, we reiterate the points in this article, and state we will deal with them only after they have reformed themselves and become a civilized people. Any individual muslims, or any Muslim nation, willing to recognize the evils of present day jihadist Islam and renounce them, and vowing to attack and jail any jihadists in their midst, and protect the rights of Christians, Jews, Women, and non-violent Muslim heritics as much as we do in the USA, we can deal with, all others are treated as barbarian kingdoms, outside the realm of civilization.

The perfect "intervention" comes in two sizes. 7.62, and 5.56

The prophet Elijah dared the priests of Baal (the moon god, btw) to a showdown.

1 Kings 18:27
At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.”

Actually, Elijah was saying, 'Maybe he's on the crapper, guys'.

36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 37 Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”
38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

Give 'em plenty of notice, and let the fire fall on the kaabah stone in mecca.
They just might get the hint.

But I will remind those people — and myself — that in our tradition we are our brother’s keeper.

Our brother's keeper or not, if the brother becomes unmanageable and a danger to himself and others, it's time to shut him away. I'm not one to advocate slaughtering a billion people, but the only way to get Islam to become part of the 21st century is to force ... no "encourage", that won't work ... but to force Muslims to accept civilized standards of behavior. Unfortunately, that entails pain.

"They are indeed in deep need of an intervention. The question is how to do it."

Erase Mecca. Give them something to really whine about.

If I was Israel, I would publically announce that if the Muslims ever get close to success in driving Israel into the sea, Israels final act before their nation perishes will be to nuke the Kaaba.

Except for backsliders and atheists among them, Muslims are not my brothers and I am not their keepers. In fact, I am the 'son of monkeys and pigs' that many of them would like to see treated as Danny Pearl was, or the three guys beheaded in Waltham, MA 'allegedly' by the Tsarnaev brothers. And if you are a Christian like the firefighter in Toronto who was just murdered in Toronto within the past ten days or so - same story. This is not what brothers, or sisters, do to one another. I had two sisters, one is still with us, and though we don't see eye to eye on many things, neither of us is interested in beheading the other - no matter what. Muslims are not our brothers, they can't be treated with intervention, and the sooner you, Roger, drop the liberalism lurking beyond the self-applied 'right-winger' label, the more value you will provide all of us.
