The Coming of Sharia to Europe

 

The increasing terrorism across much of Europe, with a few choice exceptions where terror has not struck that include Poland, Romania, Finland, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Portugal, has not received any appropriate reaction from the victims. The United States also appears to have this disease, one which President Trump laughingly claims he knows the answer for, of mistaking Islamic terror for something committed by “lone wolves,” “psychotic maniacs,” “unemployed schlemiels,” or other similar title made to secure the public in the belief that “Islam is the religion of peace” and these are simply miscreants misrepresenting a noble religion. The people are being fed a load of political platitudes because the truth is something that the leadership cannot afford to face, as that would mean they would have to address a serious and straight-forward problem, the Western World is under attack.

Most leaders of the Western nations have been educated at some of the finest universities and had an upbringing which gave them some knowledge and the ability to read and they are surrounded by some of the brightest minds both political and military. Even if the leaders are ignorant of the true nature of Islam, their advisors, at the least, the military advisors and commanders who are all of rank and have studied military history, know all that they need know about Islam and its militant history. Knowing Islamic history means they have studies, especially the United States military leaders, of the Barbary pirates and the two Barbary Wars, the spread of the Arabs across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and their conversion of every peoples they conquered by threat of death (see map below). They all have likely read the Quran, if not before, since the troubles with Islam rose its viperous head once again across the globe and especially in the West most definitely had them studying it. The truth is known in London, in Paris, in Berlin, in Brussels, in Rome, in Madrid, in Washington D.C. and every other capital under assault. They know that their showing temerity, faintheartedness and ignominiousness they have shown themselves unworthy of the leadership positions they hold.

The leaders need to come clean and inform their public but once again they believe that they can stall the threat until they have left office and retired under strict and close security and be able to live the remainder of their lives in safety and comfort. Their people, on the other hand, will not have the security, the wealth or the comfort these spineless leaders will enjoy. Terrorism will escalate and escalate just as did the piracy by the Barbary Caliphs who slaughtered Western ships and took the survivors as their slaves or ransomed the officers back to their country of origin. They would also offer to spare any nation’s ships provided they paid the Jiyza, the tax owed by conquered non-Muslims for clemency of treatment allowing them to continue to live without being subjected to Islamic Sharia, Islamic Law. The Muslims saw the payment of the demanded bounty as weakness and would break their word regularly and demand additional payments and always in greater sums. The United States was the first to decide that war was preferable to submission to Islamic demands of supremacy. Their response was all the more credible as ending an intolerable situation as it was decided by the President most desirous of having an isolationist policy and nonintervention in the world’s affairs outside the United States border, President Thomas Jefferson. The Barbary Caliph thought mistakenly that after the War of 1812 and with a new President, President James Madison, that the United states was ripe for renewed piracy. Time has passed but some things do not change and Islam is one of those things. The time for Islam has remained post World War I after the fall of the Ottoman Empire and then the end of so-called colonialism which returned the lands to their Arab colonialists who had a previous history of well over a thousand years of being colonialist rule after their spread across MENA and subjugating close to enough lands to make a continent, the Arab continent. The Arabs love to claim victimhood of less than fifty years of European colonialist suppression but think their thousand plus years of oppressive colonialist occupation of MENA as perfectly natural. But there is much worse potentially coming to the world if things do not change and the Western world does not awaken from their stupor.

 

Islam has awakened and set their sights on those they believe they must conquer and force to submit to their supremacy just as the West had done so in World War I. For the most part, Islam ignored World War II with the exception of cheering that their longest and most feared enemies were the subject of persecution and were rounded up and murdered. The Mufti of Jerusalem of that time, Amin al-Husseini, spent the war in Berlin and the Balkans where he organized battalions who were used to round up Serbian Christians and Jews as well as Roma and slaughtered many of those they captured. These troops under the Mufti of Jerusalem were noteworthy for their cruelty and barbarity. Mufti Amin al-Husseini was reportedly at the Wannsee Conference where the final solution was decided and some credit him with pushing for the extinction of the European Jews and requesting that when the Nazis allied with the Arabs and Islam and conquered MENA that they apply the same solution to the Jews residing within. Truth of the matter is that the Nazis likely got the idea for the Holocaust from the Muslims and not the other way around as so many Western educators wish to claim. The Muslim forces throughout MENA are waiting for their infiltrators into Europe and the United States to weaken the will of the Western nations to fight. They see the “Islam is the religion of peace” statement adopted by virtually every Western leader as a sign that they are well on their way to conquering the West. They see the Western world as afraid of their attacks and too timid and small to return their strikes and stabs at their hearts. Has anybody noticed their attacks and where they choose to make their attacks? Every attack has been in a major city with the majority in Capital Cities. This is their desire to stab the West at its perceived hearts and its strongholds, and for the West it is the major cities. The choice is simple for the people in the West, is your civilization worthy of being defended or are you so tired and lazy that surrender to Islam and to Allah will suit you just fine?

 

Do you understand what surrender to Islam and surrender to Allah will mean? Here is a small hint for those totally unfamiliar with Islam. Women will have no rights and will be worth half that of any man. Women must be accompanied by a male relative in order to leave the house. No movies. No Music. No dancing. No other religion than Islam. No atheism. No agnosticism. No freedom of choice. No alcoholic beverages. But there are new things which will take their place. Praying five times a day. Homosexuality punished by being thrown off a roof or cliff. Men had better grow beards. Women must dress conservatively and depending on the local Imam, full burkas required. Everything required in life is within the Quran. Education means memorizing the Quran. Ramadan fast lasting a lunar month which changes the time of year it arrives, but one only fasts during the daylight hours. Everyone must travel to Mecca if at all possible once in your lifetime called making the Hajj. There are many other items which can be added to the list of do’s and don’ts but this should suffice for now. So, decide what you want, Islam or facing the threat which is right in front of your face.

Which World Controls the Future?

 

There are basically two worlds, the technological, industrialized, computer, information, advanced world and the world still back far enough in development that world conquest is their big challenge. That is the face of the complexities in today’s world and it is very uncertain which world will prove to be the more solid and most able to survive persevering over the other one. One is sending robotized scientific probes to the planets, their moons, asteroids, comets, studying the Sun and searching the vast cosmos for other inhabitable planets close enough to Earth-like that they could serve as a second home for mankind and other interests. The other is planning on how they will conquer the entire world and force everyone to follow their religious rules and follow the customs of Islam serving Allah and basing their entire society on the Quran and likely Sharia as the law for all the Earth. These two worlds could not be any more opposite in the future they see for humankind. One is reaching for the cosmos and beyond while taking medicine into new frontiers conquering ageing and making discoveries that will feed the planet and make previously undrinkable water safe for consumption. The other places science aside except in how it can produce more efficient weapons with an emphasis on advance weapons systems, nuclear warheads and the missiles on which to mount them to target the Great Satan, the United States as well as the capitals of Europe and Israel. The contest between these two worlds may come down to the developed world actually understanding the aims of the other world and understanding that they really and honestly believe that conquest of the world and subjecting to Islam is not only possible but their raison d’etre. Where will the future take us?

The idea of world conquest by Islam is nowhere near a new idea. This had been the idea since Muhammad gathered his armies in Medina taking that city and followed it with the conquest of Mecca. Muhammad initiated the expansion of Islam and the Arab Empire, which has made them, the greatest colonialists in all of human history (see map above). Their expansion was finally halted in the battle of Tours by Charles “The Hammer” Martel in October 741 A.D., a mere hundred and twenty years after Muhammad began his conquests in the Arabian Peninsula ending the westward conquest in Europe. On the eastern fronts, Islam ran into three forces, which prevented their conquering further lands. At the eastern end of Europe was Constantinople which initially came under attack in the year 330 A.D. and held the Islamic forces in check eventually falling when the Muslims used siege cannons which finally gave the following Ottoman Empire the ability to break through the massive and all but impregnable walls in 1453 (see picture below). The Islamic forces were also stopped after their conquest of approximately one-third of India on their initial thrusts and then over the next eight-hundred years the Islamic forces pillaged their way across all of India into Burma destroying entire cities razing them to the ground slaughtering the entire populations. The conquests in Asia reached their peak until in 1255 when the Mongol Great Khan Mongke placed his brother Hulagu Khan in charge of an army whose goals were to conquer Persia, Syria, and Egypt, as well as to destroy the Abbasid Caliphate. This began the great attacks by the Mongols, which took a heavy toll on the Muslim Empire. In the end, the Muslim faith took roots in the Mongol society, which finally ended their warfare.

The second assault on Europe was made after the conquest of Constantinople by the Ottomans who ran into difficulties in virtually every front. In Rumania, they faced Vlad the Impaler, Vlad Dracula. He was a ruthless foe who would impale prisoners on pikes along the roadway, which the Muslims would be forced to utilize and other measures of brutality which spread fear within the Islamic ranks. It was rumored that even one of the Islamic leading generals refused to attack Romania claiming that Vlad the Impaler was far too insane and brutal and he would not place his men in danger of such brutalities. The Ottomans were turned back twice at the gates of Vienna. The more famous of these battles had the Polish King Jan III Sobieski reach an agreement where his neighbors would respect his borders while he and his entire military relieved the siege of Vienna. The Grand Vizer Merzifonlu Kara Mustafa Pasha began a siege of Vienna on July 14, 1683, and Polish King Jan III Sobieski led the largest cavalry charge in history: 20,000 mounted Poles, Germans and Austrians and Sobieski himself led the charge with 3,000 Polish Hussars relieving the sieged city of Vienna on September 12, 1683. World War I brought an end to the Ottoman Empire as they allied with Germany and Austria-Hungarian Empire against the Allied Powers consisting of Britain, France, Russia, Japan, Belgium, Serbia, Greece, Montenegro, Portugal and Romania. Late in the war, the United States joined the war making an immediate impact assisting in facilitating a quicker end to the conflict. The European Allied nations took control for a period of the nations across the Ottoman Empire that stretched across the Middle East to Iran and across Northern Africa. These lands were divided into individual nations by the European victors using rather arbitrary determinations, which have contributed to many of the problems in these countries today. (The nation that controlled each of these new nations and the dates in which they left are on the map below.) The Muslims are feeling that they were cheated of their proper empire and currently there are different leaders who view themselves as the proper leader who should lead the new Caliphate.

The Saudi Royals, Turkey President Erdogan, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei all believe they should be the next leader of the Islamic Caliphate. Then there is another issue, whether Iran and Shia Islam should be the true Islam for the future or whether Sunni Islam will prove superior as it has the greatest numbers at eighty to ninety percent. Then inside Sunni Islam, there are different types with the Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia, the Muslim Brotherhood that includes Turkey President Erdogan and most of the Imams at the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt. Finally, there is the Islamic State and their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who claims that he is the rightful Caliph. Saddam Hussein also had claimed he was the new leader and finally there is some claiming they are the Twelfth Imam known as Muhammad al-Mahdi. The one thing that will slow Islam is their inability to settle on a singular leader or even a single version of Islam. Currently, the Iranians are working towards becoming a hegemonic power in the Middle East and extending Shia Islam into Saudi Arabia where the north eastern and oil rich areas of Saudi Arabia already has a Shia majority population. The Sunni-Shia divides by some of the nations are; Turkey 80% Sunni and 20% Shia; Lebanon Sunni 24.5% Shia 47% with Christian and other 22%; Syria (before war) Sunni 73% Shia 14.7% Christian 9.3%; Saudi Arabia Sunni 52%, Shia 25%, Wahhabi 23%; Iraq Sunni 32.5%, Shia 63%, Christian and other 4.5%; Iran Sunni 11%, Shia 87%, Christian and other 2.5%; Egypt Sunni 87%, Shia 3%, Christian 10.25%; and Kuwait Sunni 61%, Shia 39%. The truth is that there are subsects beyond the more basic and simple Sunni and Shia divide which mostly what comes under discussions in the West, but the entirety of the complications of Islam are far more complicated. This may be the redeeming feature as witnessed in Syria. The initial divide is between Bashir al-Assad who is Alawite, which is basically a form of Shia and thus supported by Iran, the preeminent power of Shia Islam, and through Iran, Hezballah, the Shia terror groups from Lebanon, which has recently become the Lebanese military. Then there are the Kurds who despite being Sunni are targeted by all forms of Islam, especially Turkey and President Erdogan. The Kurds defend their area as best they are able and have had success against the Islamic State. There is the Islamic State which is Sunni, then the al-Qaeda aligned groups who are also Sunni and these two groups are enemies as they swear allegiance to different leaders and who you follow is the second level amongst Islamic forces. The Sunni are far more fractured than are the Shia, which actually may serve to permit Shia to slowly make gains and become dominant; especially should Iran become a nuclear power and through this become dominant. Should Iran actually use nuclear weapons, they may turn many Sunnis to switch and choose to join Shia Islam as in Islam you follow the strong horse and such acts would make Iran the strongest horse. As far as their target, it could be anything from Saudi Arabia to Egypt to Israel or the United States.

All this leads to some commentary about the developed world and what will be required for it to remain the dominant force in the world. First and foremost, the United States will be required to be a force in the world and Europe will need to change direction and find their core beliefs to prevent their perishing under a swarm from Islamic immigrants. Their scientific progress must continue and even accelerate and then be used to raise the standard of living throughout the rest of the world. They will need to set aside more funding for their militaries as only through strength can they avoid Islamic efforts. The remainder of the Christian world needs to take assistance, learn about good governance from the more successful Christian nations, and thus strengthen the Judeo-Christian ethic throughout the world. Space need become a dedicated and central effort with efforts to place permanent bases first on the Moon and soon thereafter Mars and ever further throughout the Solar System. Space is the high ground, which cannot be argued over as whoever holds space holds the highest of mountaintops. Technology is the developed world’s greatest weapon and sharing all of these technologies would be foolish. Once Islam has found a leader brave enough to actually return them to the original Quranic verses from Mecca and away from the verses written as a warlord in Medina, then with Islam taking a form where it is willing to coexist with other religions and not insist on being the superior and only religion, then the world might be capable of finally coming together. There are a fair number of Muslims who currently are working toward just such a goal with one being Egyptian President Sisi. These efforts should be supported when and where possible while the supremacist forms of Islam need be opposed and eventually eradicated if all Islam insist that they must rule the world and force all to do their bidding.

 

Coexistence is the key. The basis of this coexistence would be built upon a new material, which will be forged biological entities, to cooperate; otherwise they are separated and kept aside from all others until they are willing to coexist. The material, which makes sure that all people are willing to coexist and work together, is a living metal which will isolate any supremacist entities which refuse to cooperate with all others. These are the enforcement of coexistence and the enforcers of practical coexistence. Anything uncooperative will be sanctioned by this material until it learns cooperation and coexistence. In this society, the materials themselves will be the police and the enforcers of proper behavior.

End the Election Madness by Asking a Single Question

Israel and her people will have another opportunity to mark a bold path going forward with guarantees of security with the election coming next month. Israelis need to make this election different than many of the recent elections where the Israeli people had no real alternatives with choices between various shades of the same political beasts. It appears that in many ways it will not make a huge difference whether Labor, Likud, or any of the other parties as almost every leader stands on the status quo of Oslo and its ruinous promises. The time has come to retire the old guard of the political elite who have shown an inability to lead Israel into the world standing alone if that is what is required to put an end to the deadly mirage built upon Oslo. Israelis have been mistreated by the politicians into battered people syndrome made to accept that they must allow the world to judge their right to exist instead of standing for Israel first against those who would compromise their future. For those who will decry such a stand as a dangerous and unwinnable road are simply not among those who deserve to lead Israel as the world will trample over the rights of Israel to exist as an equal among nations for as long as her leaders bow and scrape before the demands of jealous world. It is well past time that Israel makes decisions which serve Israel and her people and not have to first beg permission of a world turned heartless to her future.

The first question which must demand be answered by any person vying to lead the people of Israel is will you guarantee that Jews will never again be forced from their home or off their lands simply to appease the demands of a world full of hostile haters of Israel and the Jews. It is no coincidence that as Israel has become more despised and damned by the rest of the world that anti-Semitism has also blossomed and spread throughout this same damning world. The hatred of Israel goes hand in hand with the hatred of the Jewish people and ending such hatred begins with Israel standing fast and proud refusing to ask forgiveness and permission to take actions considered the normal right of any nation state. Jews must no longer yield to the recriminations and absurd demands that they not build homes and neighborhoods around her eternal capital, Jerusalem. The time is now to place as Prime Minister a new generation of politician who is not corrupted by the old views and old restrictions fearing the whispers of other leaders and the various world organizations. This is the challenge that the Israeli public needs to answer in the coming elections, if not this election, then may it not take long for this awakening to come to fruition.

Israel has wasted decades in the appeasement of Oslo, and through Oslo, she has bent before the pressures and denunciations of a world which, if permitted, will always side against Israel and will eventually rule her to perish from among the nations of the Earth. Israelis must no longer stand in the shadow of the edicts of her enemies, which are legion. Israel must stand tall and cast her shadow and defend her right to define her own destiny free of the nefarious denunciations which will forever be cast in her path as obstacles with intent of her eventual demise. Israelis need to elect leadership which will serve the needs and dreams of the Israeli people and serve their ends and daily demands. No longer need Israel ask permission as Jews have been forced to do for almost two-thousand years of exile living amongst often precarious conditions and uncertain futures. Israel is now the sole hope for the Jewish people and as such owes all Jews as well as her people to demand the respect and dignity as at a minimum an equal among the nations. So, ask of the leadership of the various parties if they will honor the right of Jews to live freely in their own lands. Ask if they will represent Israel even should it mean standing against an ill tide of repressions that the world surely will cast their way. Elect a leader who has the strength of David, the wisdom of Solomon, the dedication to Eretz Yisroel of Ze’ev Jabotinsky and the righteousness of Rabbi Akiva. Oh, what a blessing it would be to find such a leader in this, a time of great peril for Israel.
