How Mainstream Islam Threatens Jewish Existence
Whether one considers the masses of Muslims flowing into Europe as (primarily economic) refugees, proud hijra colonists “quietly” Islamizing the continent, or both, these newly arrived votaries of Islam express an unabashed Islamic Jew-hatred. Germany’s failed attempt to mollify this Muslim immigrant animus toward Jews by “sensitivity” visits to Nazi-era concentration camp memorials demonstrates its deep-seated intractability.
The spectacle of brutality on display at Sachsenhausen did not awe [Syrian Muslim] Jamo, a former photographer who had known daily violence in Syria. No matter the direct perpetrator of the violence Jamo had witnessed, the greatest cause of conflict in the region, he said, was Israel…“The Arabs think what Hitler did was a good thing, because he freed them from the Jews.”
As I will elucidate under three subheadings [(I) Canonical Islam is Rife with Jew-Hatred, and Mainstream Islam’s Most Authoritative Theologians and Institutions Actively Promote This Bigotry; (II) Mainstream Islam’s Inculcation of Canonical Islamic Jew-Hatred is Mirrored by the Pandemic of Global Muslim Jew-Hatred; (III) Non-Muslim Religious and Political Leaders—Including Jews—Remain in Abject Denial About the Direct Causal Link Between the Mainstream Inculcation of Canonical Islamic Jew-Hatred, and the Pandemic of Global Muslim Jew-Hatred], the evidence is overwhelming, and irrefragable, that contemporary mainstream Islam foments the global scourge of annihilationist Islamic Jew-hatred in a simple, powerful manner: invoking Islam’s most important canonical sources, and their most authoritative interpretations.
But who best represents “mainstream Islam”? By Islamic consensus, The Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre [RISSC] in Amman, Jordan, has defined, and further epitomizes, the phenomenon. The major aims of this mainstream Islamic organization, which each year puts out the "The Muslim 500—The World’s 500 Most Influential Muslims", per its 2007 Charter, are:
- “to protect, preserve and propagate traditional, orthodox, ‘moderate’ Islam as defined by the international Islamic Consensus on the ‘Three Points of the Amman Message’ arrived at over the years 2005-2006.”
- “to spread knowledge of the ‘Amman Message’ of November 2004 and the principles it contains in so far as these best represent traditional, orthodox, ‘moderate’ Islam.”
- “to establish, propagate and publicize the religious and legal positions of traditional, orthodox, ‘moderate’ Islam on key issues relevant to life in the modern world.”
The RISSC’s 2017 iteration of “The Muslim 500” maintains that traditional Muslims (96%) and “fundamentalists” (3%) comprise 99% of the world’s Muslims, while modernists represent ≤1%. The biting dismissal of the ≤1% “modernists” and their “scant knowledge of traditional Islam,” explodes a comforting fiction about “reform,” and “reformists”, long propounded by delusive Western apologists, across the political spectrum:
Islamic modernism is a reform movement started by politically-minded urbanites with scant knowledge of traditional Islam. These people had witnessed and studied Western technology and socio-political ideas, and realized that the Islamic world was being left behind technologically by the West and had become too weak to stand up to it. They blamed this weakness on what they saw as 'traditional Islam,' which they thought held them back and was not 'progressive' enough. They thus called for a complete overhaul of Islam, including—or rather in particular—Islamic law ( sharia ) and doctrine (aqida). Islamic modernism remains popularly an object of derision and ridicule, and is scorned by traditional Muslims and fundamentalists alike.
