The Blindness of the Western Public and Society

 

The good news is there have been some recent indications that a remote few are waking up and the screaming core of those sounding the alarm has finally begun to gain some traction. The bad news is the other side has a near twenty year head start in getting their inroads into our societies and they have made great strides in controlling central institutions which will shape our future. They have implanted their operatives in libraries and specialized in approving and purchasing new books and magazines. They have infiltrated positions approving school books for social sciences, social studies and government studies classes. In all these cases they have blocked any books whose maps do not include Palestine and if possible they choose those who replace Israel with Palestine erasing the Jewish State entirely. They choose books which favorably speak of Islam as a modern and progressive religion which is understanding, open and pluralistic and has established communities where freedom of religion is practiced and women are protected and live lives with privilege and rights to control their own bodies.

 

They have also infiltrated politics at some surprising levels and places including a close aide and trusted advisor to one of the candidates for President of the United States who could become the leader of the free world in January of 2017 should they win in the November balloting. The infiltration of the influences of Islam is not restricted to a single party though it has taken a stronger foothold in one as theirs is a much more attractive medium for influence to grab hold if it is presented with the promise of greater control over the public leading eventually to totalitarian hold by the party most connected to this influence. This is what Islam has promised to all political parties in the West but for reasons which to many who understand Islam appears counter intuitive. The most leftist parties have been the ones adopting and inviting Islamic influences seeking the promise of future greatness and expansive power base leading to permanent controlling election results placing them firmly in control of every lever of power. This is the identical chimera which was the attraction of the socialist, may we even say communist, accepted levels of influence some might claim compromised their standing as representing a true American political view for the future. Trading your core principles to the highest bidder who promises a future of complete and unopposable political control for the foreseeable future is un-American in its own right. Any compromise of the Constitutional guarantees, especially the Bill of Rights, is an unacceptable position for any political entity which portends to represent the American public. As it has been established firmly by numerous academic studies, Sharia is absolutely incompatible with any democratic system of governance including a constitutional democratic republic which is the basis for the governance of the United States under the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights (first Ten Amendments to the Constitution which the states demanded before they agreed to ratification). Any political party compromising such rights and the basic underpinnings of the founding spirit of the United States should be rejected by the public immediately when such becomes evident. Unfortunately such a response from the public is completely dependent on the media reporting honestly, forthrightly, and giving in depth inspection and bordering interrogation of all involved routing out any and all suspicions of errant political influences, especially any foreign influences. This is also not happening for reasons not yet discernable other than much of the mainstream media having political views paralleling those of the afflicted party.

 

The growing influence of Islam is due to their intelligent and determined use of the freedoms of the United States and the cluelessness of much of the media. They report every insistence by the plethora of civic Islamic institutions complaints of Islamophobia and verbal insults of Islam almost weekly if not daily. These reports never follow up that there was no validity or guilt found when the complaints are investigated, though the media is ever ready to report the next cry of Islamophobia. Reporting these cries has become the new favorite cry of racism against the average American and the public at large and many in the media love nothing more than to sink their teeth into how uncouth and uneducated the average American can be shown to exhibit by which the media can then prance using their written lines to sound erudite and thus prove their superior understanding and higher reasoning and educations making them worldly and knowing and nothing brings this to the fore more than the racist label being thrown around. Islamophobia is just such a cry which portrays Americans as rabidly xenophobic, uneducated, narrow-minded and overly patriotically nationalistic. Such an opportunity for pontificating the overly judgmentalism and rejection of a strange and relatively new religion in the United States and to quote President Obama, “it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” This parallel was simply too juicy to be rejected by the holier than the society as a whole media. With such an echo chamber, is it any wonder that every askance glance or sideways look is immediately blown into a report of extreme insult to Islam and another extreme case of Islamophobia. Make no mistake, these screams are a well thought out plan to get preferential treatment and allow Islam to be considered a complete “hands-off” with respect to any suspicions or accusations allowing for all such occurrences to be ignored allowing Islam to have a dominant position against all other religions and interests, including those of preserving freedoms in America including freedom of speech and freedom of religion and mark our words, those are the first targets of Islam in order to make Islam the only religion, Allah the only god and Muhammad his messenger and perfect male role model.

 

Europe has had a somewhat more violence prone result from their allowing “refugees” from Syria to resettle in their nations. They soon find that these “Syrian refugees” are actually from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and other Islamic nations from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). These “refugees” are mostly unaccompanied males between the ages of fifteen and forty or fifty, fighting age single men without wives, children or any family as far as can be determined. Yes there are some groups where women and children are included and these rarities somehow manage to be the sole figures that many media photographers are able to find and often are treated as the standard representatives of the refugees allowing media to report a pretty picture of family struggles to survive the horrors of the different warring factions. Many of the presumed refugees claim their real reason for coming to Europe was to collect the generous government benefits and spread Islam conquering Europe, but do not wait for many of these interviews to be reported in your nightly news. Germany had an eruption of sexual harassment and attacks on New Year’s Eve 2015-6 at any number of main train stations in city centers. These attacks angered many Germans and not just as reported simply right-wing xenophobic fascist nationalist extremists but many from the general public as was evident from the size and appearance of the crowds protesting (see picture below).

Germany has not been the only place facing violence as France has had a number of terrorist strikes including a deadly well-planned and executed military assault on Paris striking a number of public venues including a night club, a soccer stadium and other spots across the city. Later in the year there was an attack on a small parish church in the Normandy where they murdered Father Jacques Hamel cutting his throat in front of parishioners during the mass service. We covered this in our article on this heinous act in the article How Many Innocents Must Die? There have been numerous other incidents of terror attacks throughout Europe as well as all the turmoil and wars stretching across the MENA nations. Where this will end is anybody’s guess and how it will end will depend on how the Western National Public reacts and whether they will believe their freedoms and rights are worthy of being defended or whether they will simply allow Islam to trample their freedoms, history and colonize them as Islam has already done in their conquest of the entirety of MENA and beyond with this simply what some have identified as Islam’s third offensive against Europe and Western values. The first two were stopped and pushed back, whether this assault will also be repulsed remains to be seen. With many politicians already capitulating if not joining the wrong side and much of the media not reporting these attacks and the claims of Islamophobia are all part of the same assault upon Western society, nothing less. Will the Western nations reaffirm their Judeo-Christian history and realize its centrality to their modern lives and freedoms and how without the continued Judeo-Christian identity and a return to their religious identities and renew their faith the probability is they will fall and Islam will triumph bringing their dream of world domination one huge step closer. Will the Western World renew their belief in Hashem or fall before Allah. The two are not equal or the same, they are not different names for the same Deity. Hashem, the Judeo-Christian Deity, is the G0d of Abraham, Isaak, and Jacob while Allah is the deity of Abraham, Ishmael and Muhammad. Very different even if that might appear a minor difference, it is not. Is the history of the Western World about to end and be subsumed by Islam where all previous history before the conquest by Islam will be voided and soon cease to exist being supplanted by a new Islamic history.

Islam and the Future of Representative Governance

 

There have been far too many public figures drinking so much of the Islamic propaganda Kool-Aid that there are those who have come to honestly believe that Islam is peace and compatible with representative democratic republic governance. They honestly believe that the world’s majority of the one and one-third Billion Muslims want to coexist with everybody else working to better the world through mutual respect and tranquility without any threats to our way of life. Even a cursory examination of the realities of the Quran, the two faces, the strange manner in which it is compiled with the shortest verse first and with them slowly ascending in size with the largest verse last so that the youth can work at their own pace learning by rote the shortest leaving the really long verses last and not compiled by date or subject. We wrote a short and concise description of the two faces, the early ones from Mecca and the later verses from Medina and the mood, situation and outlook which affected Mohammad’s outlook and authority in our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? The description touches on the basics but if visits are any indication, then it does fulfill that challenge. Should Islam actually achieve their goal of world conquest and unifying all Islam under one sole, unique and declared pure Quranic Code and the Earth’s population all under one Supreme Imam under Sharia, no elections, only religious courts and no varying religions with one religion, one result and no freedom as only submission to Allah through Allah’s representatives chosen by a council of elder Imams whose decisions are not subject to doubts or questions. Everyone will know and understand the Five Pillars of Islam It will be ‘What part of Submission do you not understand?’

 

 

Five Pillars of Islam
 

 

The most basic difference between the two is where Western governance allows for multiple choices, occasionally more than the two main parties though infrequently, Islam would make such a choice either a meaningless decision the Imam would instruct the congregants for whom to vote or the candidates would have been chosen by the clerical hierarchy thus making any vote meaningless; but even this situation would seldom arise as there would be no government as is understood in the Western World. In Islam the rules of law and the punishments are prescribed by the Quran and no other can exist except as to do as the clerics define actions on the Sharia.

 

In an Quranic governance any elected governance would be simply adding a layer of people who have been vetted by the real power, the leading Islamic clerics such that any candidate who is permitted to seek such power must be vetted by the leading clerics such that the only candidates in any election have already proven themselves to be truly an extension of the religious order and as any law is passed by the governance must then be vetted for its final form by an assembly of experts whose power is absolute such that any candidate permitted to run for office in the so-called, open and free elections are simply a rubber stamp extension of the clerical regime which is selected and not elected and where the true power lied in reality and thus one would be under a clerical dictatorial governance and no truly elected governance can exist under Sharia, the basic legal structure of any governance in a true Islamic State.

 

Within Islam there is no provision for any State or governance outside of the Sharia. Many in the Western World refer to Sharia as Sharia Law because they see Sharia as a set of man-made religious codices which are to be interpreted such that they fit within the legal framework of the State while there is no such need for such an interpretation in an Islamic State as Sharia is also the legal code for the State and the religion becomes the State. Judaism and originally Christianity had recognition for a State governance which may disagree with religious text; the most glaring example is in the case of women choosing whether or not she desires to have a child and her avenues permitted by law for her to choose from in this area. The original answer to the question posed to Jesus over which tax should be considered as legal for the State to take as versus what religious demands which were man-made institution of taxation when his reply was said to have been, “To Caesar what is Caesar’s and to Hashem what is Hashem’s” noting that one has obligations to the state just as he has obligations to Hashem and one is obliged to keep the laws of man up until they break the laws of Hashem as put forth in the Commandments in Torah, which happened all too often as if the States were making laws directly the converse of Halacha and Jewish Laws. Examples of such which have started once again in Europe and even the United States are laws against circumcision calling it a mutilation of genitalia; Shechita, the laws of Kashrut; laws against teaching Torah; and other such laws which are all too often passed in order to force all Jews to become criminal in their daily behavior. Islam under Sharia goes one step further in that it denotes those worthy of such to be Dhimmi which is a class of lower citizenry who are not permitted to be before the courts except as a defendant who is not even given the right to speak before the court in their own defense even before sentencing, and the alternative of conversion or death. Even should one be classified as a Dhimmi and pay the Jizya, a special and often onerous tax non-Muslims must pay, there will come that day when such status is revoked and then it becomes convert or death or often both where you convert and then are summarily executed for your sins against Allah while a Dhimmi. As is obvious from the last section, Sharia is a complete governing set of rules which all followers of Islam are instructed to spread throughout the lands and defined lands which must become Islamic as any land where any Muslim’s foot, does not require both feet, has graced with its treading. For those unfamiliar with some of the degradations and dehumanization even of their own progeny, here is a quote from a recent statement made by Palestinian Authority Minister of Women’s Affairs, Haifa Al-Agha, who stated, “Minister of Women’s Affairs Haifa Al-Agha…noted the Palestinian woman’s uniqueness, which differentiates her from the women of the world, as she receives the news of her son’s martyrdom with cries of joy.” This was how she was quoted in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the PA official newspaper as translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) and reported in Arutz Sheva thankfully as this made it more easily noted without viewing the dozens of PMW articles released each day (we reserve reading those on a slow news day along with CAMERA and MEMRI).

 

Islam will become triumphant even where there exist Constitutions or complete bodies of law given sufficient time. In any democracy or republic where the will of the people is used to elect their representatives or directly make the laws, the Muslims will be patient, if we are lucky, and simply bide their time meanwhile bringing in relatives and having large families and intermarrying which under Sharia any person who marries a Muslim the children must be raised under Islam and become good little Muslims. Muslims will ignore the laws of the land and take more than one wife, often a non-Muslim so as to deplete the number of women available to have children in other or no religious upbringing, and once back in their Muslim neighborhoods there is no law of the State, there is only Sharia. Once the woman is brought to meet the family they will never see the outside world again without great amounts of planning and sheer luck (for a gripping story of one woman’s struggle to reach what she would have called humanity as she had married a charming Muslim man and went to meet his family in Afghanistan and then the horrors began An American Bride in Kabul: A Memoir by Professor Phyllis Chesler and an excellent book to read and take a taste of a world many of us do not believe can exist in the modern world.) Many people in the Western society have absolutely no idea of exactly what Sharia is. They mistakenly and at their own peril believe it is all about religion and can exist within a governance and not be in conflict and believed by its adherents to supercede the laws of the land and that could not be further from the truth. The truths are viciously and nerve-gratingly the opposite of all you have known.

 

To test that last thought, the fact that the Muslims will set up a mini-state under Sharia and completely ignore the laws of the land in which they reside, all one need do is talk to people you know or can get an introduction to meet who take commuter light rail, buses or other above ground mass transportation what it is like as they pass through an almost completely and strictly Islamic area of the city where the Sharia is the law of the land. These unfortunates get to experience something akin to Professor Chesler got to feel the entire twenty-thousand-ton load of oppressions, degradations, subjugations and generally dehumanizing treatment which is why we suggest her book as after reading that and perhaps then following her editorial works one can get a taste, a glimpse behind the curtain. There are other memoirs written by people who got to witness the world beyond Islam and tell of their harrowing escapes and the complete awe and gratitude they have for the lives we all take pretty much for granted, there are two more books we recommend;

 

Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Because They Hate by Brigitte Gabriel

Europeans Youths Leading Western Return

Probably the least covered story due to Media’s preconceived notions blinding them from seeing a trend which is in its early stages as well as their willful blindness to anything religious are signs of a resurgence of morality and returns to religious belief in G0d even if the rejection of organized religious institutions had been retained. This has been evidenced recently with Jewish youths coming to protect the Synagogues from the assaults by anti-Israel rioting demonstrators who had overwhelmed the marginal force put up by police to prevent these demonstrations from turning violent and break containment in order to attack Jewish stores and Synagogues. Similar evidence has been seen at retreats with religious themes and counter demonstrations countering anti-Christian demonstrators. This silent revolution of sorts is a predictable reaction to the attacks on Judeo-Christian society which have been on the rise throughout the West, particularly in Europe. This prediction came up over a decade ago in discussions with friends on what could be expected to occur in Europe and the West in response to the growth, increased presence, and escalated forcefulness of Islam as the numbers of Islam grew and their actions became more aggressive as their numbers grew as a percentage of populations. This return to religious belief was predictable as a reaction of the youth against their parents’ desertion of religion over the past number of decades and a result of seeking answers in a different direction than the one taken by their parents. But what future might this portend?

 

This return to religious foundations will reinstate the possibility for a return to civil and social assistance to address societal safety nets which potentially could have the people insist that government be driven from being the sole domain of government and instead be returned to groups of individuals who would eventually form new churches and organized religious establishments free from the current systems which have driven the flight from religion in the current adult populations. Where this will ultimately lead is difficult to predict as the youths returning to religion are doing so in an age where an association of like believing people can span a large area geographically and remain tightly connected through electronic media and social networks. Their networks could also work as a means to establish a loosely coordinated international set of religious groupings which might control larger grouping numbers, virtual congregations and larger religious institutions, which would rival or supercede any traditional religious institutions, possibly approaching or exceeding the population of the Catholic Church or any of the Protestant Synods etc. This could lead to a religious revolution and potentially leading to a unification of the Christian religious institutions into a unified church where these new religious cyber-institutions through their growth and interactions could resolve differences which today set the individual religious institutions against each other preventing their combining their congregations and efforts thus leaving them in opposition instead of building and merging bringing more unity. These new religious networks would provide just such a unifying of the separate religious factions which might even produce a unified version of the Bible which incorporated all of the similarities and managed to mediate the differences between the existing numerous translations of the original writings. Such a result would strengthen the unity and permit a merging of the separate faiths thus increasing religious unity and forming a unified belief system allowing for increased strength through unified belief structures and definitions of principles. This may be the power that resolves some of the difficulties currently facing modern society and allows for an answer to some of the threats and challenges facing our current nations and communities. This could be just the solution which will reinvigorate our moral core in our societies which will return a special meaning which appears to be so lacking in so many places and interactions in our society. This could bring a rebirth of compassion, understanding and a morality which allows for a closer relationship between the otherwise disparate societies and civilizations at different places technologically, financially and seemingly spiritually bring people across the globe closer as they will have developed a mutually accepted core definition for the meanings and values in life, and with these shared values they will have developed a unified language through which they can exchange and share through their shared faiths and human values, things which today work more to separate too many of us and our societies. Perhaps the future really is going to be bright and promising.
