As Europe Yields To Islamofascism, Is U.S. On The Same Path?

Herb Denenberg: The Advocate As Europe Yields To Islamofascism, Is U.S. On The Same Path? By Herb Denenberg, The Bulletin 02/13/2008

The once mighty, the once invincible, the once courageous and brave-beyond-belief Britain is in the process of surrendering to Islamofascism without firing a shot. Here are the latest examples indicating how far along that process has gone:

British government ministers have declared that Islamic terrorism will no longer be so described. In the future, Muslim fanatics, murderers and suicide bombers will be referred to as pursuing “anti-Islamic activity.”

This new language, turning the truth on its head, was announced by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith. She said that these Islamic murderers and terrorists were behaving contrary to their faith and are not acting in the name of Islam.

In her statement, she said, “As so many Muslims in the U.K. and across the world have pointed out, there is nothing Islamic about the wish to terrorize, nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief. Indeed, if anything these actions are anti-Islamic.”

Other phrases that are not be used by people at the top of the British government are “war on terror” and “Islamic extremism.” The director of public prosecution has also chimed in by saying that phrases that liken London to “a battlefield” will no longer be used. This perversion of language would even embarrass George Orwell.

The British government seems to be excusing and apologizing for those blowing up Britons in the name of Islam and Allah, and they are doing it without even being asked. One conservative member of parliament, Philip Davies, said that no Muslim constituent had ever complained to him about the term “Islamic extremism.”

Mr. Davies went on to explain, “Whenever anyone refers to Islamic terrorism, they are not saying all Muslims are terrorist. Everybody knows what people mean is terrorists doing it in the name of Islam, misguidedly. If the government spent less time worrying about this and more time worrying about things such as having effective border controls, we would be getting somewhere.”

Here is another step in the path of surrender to Islamofascism: The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, recently called for the recognition of Islamic law in Britain. He said, “We have to think about the rule of law in a society of overlapping identities.” The Web site http://www.thisislondon.co.uk reported, “He declared that sharia and parliamentary law should be given equal legal status so the people could choose which governs their lives. This raised the prospect of Islamic courts in Britain with full legal powers to approve polygamous marriages, grant easy divorces for men and prevent finance firms from charging interest.”

His critics rightly said this is sleepwalking to segregation and encourages segregation rather than integration. The archbishop has a formula to assure not the unification of Britain – but its disintegration.

The archbishop said it would be possible to develop “a scheme in which individuals retain the liberty to choose the jurisdiction under which they will seek to resolve certain carefully specified matters so that power holders are forced to compete for the loyalty of their shared constituents. This may include aspects of marital law, the regulation of financial transactions and authorized structures of mediation and conflict resolution.”

One critic put it this way, speaking of the archbishop: “He’s one of the most influential Christian prelates in the world, and he is supposed to be standing up for Christianity. What he’s doing is abandoning his own religion. If people come to this country, they should be prepared to compromise their own traditions to fit in with the host country.” Another critic, an MP, said, “Freedom under the law allows respect for some religious practice. But let’s be absolutely clear: All British citizens must be subject to British laws developed through Parliament and the courts.”

These two developments suggest that Britain has lost confidence in its own laws, culture, values, history and traditions. And it suggests it lacks the confidence and strength to resist the coming onslaught of Islamofascism. Kenneth Clark, in his book Civilization, noted, “It is lack of confidence, more than anything else, that kills a civilization. We can destroy ourselves by cynicism and disillusion just as effectively as by bombs.”

This calls to mind one of the great points made in the book America Alone by Mark Steyn, whose work also appears in The Bulletin. He tells the story of a British general in India, when it was still controlled by the British Empire. This general was confronted with suttee, the Indian custom of burning on a funeral pyre, by the widow of a man who had just died. He told the Indians, “You have your culture and we have ours. You can build your funeral pyre, but next to it we will build our gallows.” That kind of confidence in the British culture has been replaced by a kind of cowardice and lack of confidence, reflected in these case studies.

If you read America Alone, Londonistan by Melanie Phillips and While Europe Slept by Bruce Bawer, you’ll be convinced that Europe is lost to Islamofascism and that soon, in Mr. Steyn’s words, it will be “America alone” to defend freedom. These two case studies, described above, show how far the British have gone from the spirit and tradition of Winston Churchill to sniveling and surrendering cowards that have lost their center and their way.

One of the world’s most renowned and respected scholars of the Middle East and Islam agrees with this grim view. Prof. Bernard Lewis says that the Muslims “seem to be about to take over Europe.” He says that Islam is about to become the dominant force in Europe because the Europeans have abdicated the battle for cultural and religious control in the name of political correctness.

Mr. Lewis makes it clear that what is at stake is not just the form of prayer or whatnot. He is concerned about the growing Muslim power in Europe along with its rising support of extremist and terrorist movements within Islam. Mr. Lewis says that Europe has not fought the threat, and has just given up.

This development is of great concern not only because of the importance of Europe in the free world, but also because many believe the United States are on the same track toward Muslim domination, just at a less developed stage than Europe.

Ms. Phillips writes, “The [British] government had quite simply handed over policy on extremism to the extremists. This was no accident but a deliberate policy of riding the Islamic tiger. Asked why the government was using radicals in this way, [then British Home Secretary Charles] Clarke replied that it was to demonstrate to the Muslim community that democracy entailed engaging with a range of views rather than blowing up one’s opponents.

“Clarke appeared to think that he could use dialogue with the Islamists as a kind of role-play, which would have no effect on government policy but would show that talking was the ‘British way.’ This was hopelessly naïve. It took no account of the fact that it raised the profile of such radicals and gave them credibility and thus even more clout within their community. Above all it showed that, like so many others, Clarke did not grasp that religious ideology rather than bombs was the principal weapon in the war.”

Mr. Lewis explains how and why Europe is giving away its culture, religion and values. He says, “Europeans are losing their own loyalties and their own self-confidence. They have no respect for their own culture.” He says that Europeans have “surrendered” on every issue related to Islam in a mood of “self-abasement,” “political correctness” and “multiculturalism.” Some observers of the American scene say that is exactly what is in the process of killing us. Yes, America is also awash with deadly self-abasement (anti-Americanism), political correctness and multiculturalism.

The Cybercast News Service reports, “Members of Congress are seeking more information regarding the firing of a top terrorism expert at the Pentagon following reports that he was dismissed for being too critical of Islamic law. Earlier this month, the Pentagon Joint Staff told Stephen Coughlin, a specialist on Islamic law at the Pentagon, that his contract would not be renewed in March. The firing apparently resulted from pressure by pro-Muslim officials working in the Department of Defense, according to numerous news reports.” This story was broke by intelligence analyst Kenneth R. Timmerman, author of Shadow Warriors.

Emanuel Winston, a respected Middle East analyst, wrote that this is more than a bad personnel decision: “There is every indication that Islamists have deeply penetrated the organs of the U.S. government. An expert on Islam in the Pentagon [the aforementioned Coughlin] was recently fired due to pressure by Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England. This dismissal was provoked by Hesham Islam, a personal aide to England. Heshem Islam was born and raised in Egypt. He is reported to be heavily involved with the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA), which has been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terror funding case involving the Holy Land Foundation. Strange things are happening at the Pentagon and intel agencies but not so strange as what is called the Arabist U.S. State Department. Recently, according to John Bolton, former American ambassador to the U.N., the State Department sent several of its pro-Arab staff into the Pentagon and 16 American intel agencies to initiate their own policy.”

This whole problem and process has been aggravated by the incessant anti-American journalism of the mainstream media, and the virulent anti-American scholarship and pronouncements coming from so many of our colleges and universities. And this trend will be further aggravated if political power shifts leftward – to politicians and a Democratic Party that appear to lack the will to fight and win the war on terror and the war against Islamofascism. It is no exaggeration to say that the ongoing political campaign may well determine whether civilization as we know it will survive, and whether America – alone or not – can fight and win the war against Islamofascism that has been thrust upon it.

Those with questions about the direction of the Democratic Party and the left should look more closely at its driving force. David Horowitz, author and founder of the online newsmagazine FrontPageMag.com, has written many important books, but this may be his most important: Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left.

He writes, “This is a book about the political left in America, its problematic allegiances with Islamic radicals, its influence on the Democratic party, its opposition to the war In Iraq and its impact on the war on terror.” A more comprehensive and less diplomatic summary statement might go like this: The American left – including the driving force of the Democratic Party, most of the mainstream media and most of our major colleges and universities – have become irrationally critical of America, its military and its foreign policy. They have also made alliances with or lent support to our enemies and have damaged our ability to defend our shores against radical Islam and other sources of terrorism. They are one of the reasons we may, in Kenneth Clark’s words, lose the confidence it takes to maintain and defend our civilization.

Exposting the ‘Islamic State Apartheid’

Exposting the ‘Islamic State Apartheid’
http://www.islamicstateapartheid.com

Welcome to IslamicStateApartheid.com
This organization has recently been founded by a group of York University students from different races and backgrounds who are disgusted by the oppression and apartheid taking place all over Islamic States.
Our goal is to expose Islamic State Apartheid and to begin the liberation of the oppressed!
The American Heritage Dictionary defines apartheid as:
A policy or practice of separating or segregating groups
Islamic State Apartheid can be divided into four categories:
1: Gender
apartheid
2: Sexual Apartheid
3: Religious Apartheid
4: Political
Apartheid
In Islamic states, women are separated from the same class as men- can’t even leave their own homes without male relatives.
In Islamic states, gays are separated from society if discovered….and most likely killed. In Islamic states, other religions are segregated and cannot attain the same rights that the state grants to the Islamic religion. In Sudan, the genocide against the Christian population is being condoned by the government of this Islamic state.
In Islamic States, people who speak out against the state are separated and segregated from the rest of society and imprisoned.
All of the above is APARTHEID! If you do not agree then you are denying the oppression of millions of these people.
BUT WHAT CAN I DO YOU ASK…
1) Read this website and make yourself more knowledgeable about the apartheid practices taking place in Islamic states!
2) Sign up for our mailing list to find out about our events in your city or schools!
3) Buy cool merchandise from our store! All proceeds go to executing campaigns!
4) Donate money to our cause! We need $ to keep up the fight!

BEHIND THE LINES:
Our Take on the Other Media’s Homeland Security Coverage

Over there: Disparaging any manhunt for al Qaeda leaders as pointless, Pakistan’s president said Tuesday that Osama bin Laden is less of a threat to his regime than the Taliban running roughshod over part of his country, The News notes — while AP has an administration official venting dissatisfaction with the quality of info it’s getting about jihadis operating in Pakistan’s volatile tribal area. Extensive intel has allowed coalition forces to push al Qaeda out of numerous Iraqi provinces, but a top commander stays cautious, “saying the terrorist group’s ability to re-emerge is constant,” The Washington Times tells. Afghanistan’s president warned the World Economic Forum in Switzerland yesterday that the whole world could suffer from the “wildfire” of terrorism engulfing his region, The Voice of America mentions.

Over here: “Sleeper cells are walking around the infidels’ land using different cover methods
and white names that don’t attract American internal security’s attention, but . . .
it’s al Qaeda’s lone wolves that disrupt [the FBI’s],” The Jamestown Foundation quotes a jihadi Web posting.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has backed off on its defense of two Muslim college students caught driving with explosives and a how-to video on bomb-making, WorldNetDaily relates. Concerns about the safety of serving Muslim military personnel arose after it emerged that their personal details were among those of 600,000 people held on a filched Royal Navy laptop, The Sunday Times tells. Releasing updated guidelines, British university leaders agree to inform the police of any extremist behavior by students or visiting speakers they suspect may lead to terrorism, The Guardian reports — while AP has U.K. police offering to train the academics.

Holy Wars: “How does a single individual go from standing on a
street corner to flicking a switch and blowing himself up? The question is superficially simple. The
answers are not,” The Observer explores in a two-partseries.
Jihad doctrine;
Shariah (Islamic law); designs for a global caliphate through jihad (terrorism) and the spread of Shariah (Islamization): We pretend they are not factors in the free world’s experience with Islam,” a Washington Times columnist waxes wroth. “Nowadays, quite a few Islamic religious leaders issue fatwas against Westerners—or moderate Muslims—thus energizing the people against other nations, in a battle resembling the one between light and darkness in Manichaeism,” a Worldpress.org essay asserts. A Palestinian resistance group gaining strength on the West Bank “sounds like Hamas — or even al Qaeda — but doesn’t support suicide bombings or secret militias,” The Christian Science Monitor profiles.

I have been following with embarrassment and shame the case of Gillian Gibbons and her class teddy bear. To construe that naming a child’s toy Muhammad is an insult …

The actions of the Sudanese government and people in this regard have the effect of portraying Muslims as being small-minded, overly touchy and paranoid, ready to perceive insult where none is intended, and, more dangerously, given to resolving all differences through violence. It is not Gibbons who brings shame to Islam. It is the reaction of Muslims to her action that brings shame to Islam.

The atrocities that are currently taking place in Sudan are not only an insult to Islam but to all humankind. My brothers and sisters in Islam would be better served by raising their voices against the travesty that is Darfur. A nation that encourages the genocide of its people and that allows innocent men, women and children to be massacred is the real enemy of Islam

Islam and Islamofascism

November 9, 2007

Islam and Islamofascism Larry Houle – 11/8/2007The term Islamo – Fascism gives tremendous creditability to Islam. It perpetuates the myth that Islam is a wonderful religion of peace and love that has been hi – jacked and perverted by a few bad apples of evil Islamo – Facsists, Islamic militants, jihadists, Wahhabism, radical Islam, Islamists. There has been no hijacking. There has been no perversion. These demented souls are following exactly the teachings of the Koran and in the footsteps of the Prophet – Muhammad.The reality is that Osama bin Laden is a true Muslim – a holy man of the book who is following exactly the teachings of Islam as recorded in the Koran.

By not exposing the true nature of Islam, those who use the term Islamo – Fascism etc are elevating Islam to an equal footing with Christianity and other world religions.

WHY ISLAM IS ISLAMO – FASCISM

Islam is a barbaric, sexist, violent ideology (not a religion) that worships a pagan god (Allah) and women are oppressed under Islam.

THE CRIMINALITY OF MUHAMMAD

How could any person be ‘proud’ to follow a man who was a pedophile, endorser of clitoridectomy, slave trader, rapist, polygamist, punched his child bride and endorsed whipping/beating women and ploughing them like fields, stoned women to death, flogged his slave women for fornication while he had sex with slaves himself, propositioned women and passed them round to friends, denied women equal inheritance, or equality under the law etc forever and abused and denigrated them in every way–not to mention his general sadism to others, mass murder, beheading captives, massacres, terror, torture, owning slaves and raping them, looting and pillaging, amputations, flogging, thievery, lying, hate, megalomania— unending horror.

All Muslims believe the Koran is the Eternal divine word of God – the Eternal laws of God. All Muslims believe that God authored the Koran and a copy of the Koran is in heaven. The Koran remains for all Muslims, not just “fundamentalists,” the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places forever; its ideas are absolutely true and beyond all criticism. To question it is to question the very word of God, and hence blasphemous. A Muslim’s duty is to believe it and obey its divine commands without question.

Following are some of the close to 1000 Islamo – Fascist teachings of the Koran that are not sins against God, are not crimes against God but are THE LAWS OF GOD.

SLAVERY AND RAPING AND KILLING SLAVES ARE LAWS OF GOD FOR ALL ETERNITY

4:24 And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned, so that ye seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock, not debauchery. And those of whom ye seek content (by marrying them), give unto them their portions as a duty. And there is no sin for you in what ye do by mutual agreement after the duty (hath been done). Lo! Allah is ever Knower, Wise.

“All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. You can’t have sex with married women, unless they are slaves obtained in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like).” 4:24

If some one kills your freeman, you must kill one of their free men, if some one kills your slave, you must kill one of their slaves, if some one kills your woman you must kill one of their women.

2.178 O true believers, the law of retaliation is ordained you for the slain: The free [shall die] for the free, and the slave for a slave, and a woman for a woman.

23.1-6: Successful indeed are the believers, Who are humble in their prayers, And who keep aloof from what is vain, And who are givers of poor-rate, And who guard their private parts, Except before their mates or those whom their right hands possess, for they surely are not blameable.

LOOTING AS AN ETERNAL LAW OF GOD AND SHARING 1/5 OF THE PROCEEDS FROM LOOTING AND SELLING SLAVES WITH GOD

Quran-8:41— “And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer,- if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things.

Quran-33:27- “And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which ye had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things.” [Merciful Allah asked Prophet Muhammad to confiscate entire properties of the surrendered Jews]

100% OF BOOTY WAS MUHAMMAD’S IF NO VIOLENCE WAS INVOLVED

However if the victims surrendered without any fight, all the booty belonged to Muhammad.

59.6 Allah gave all the booty (Fai’) to His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) if the unbelievers surrendered without fight.

MURDERING INFIDELS AS AN ETERNAL LAW OF GOD

9:50 When the sacred months have passed away, THEN SLAY THE IDOLATERS (unbelievers) WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TAKE THEM CAPTIVES AND BESIEGE THEM AND LIE IN WAIT FOR THEM IN EVERY AMBUSH, then if they repent and keep up prayer [become believers] and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them

9:29 Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the people of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay the jizya [poll tax] with willing submission, feel themselves subdued.”

5:36 The punishment of those who wage war against God and His Apostle, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

Quran-8:17—It is not ye who Slew them; it is God; when thou threwest a handful of dust, it was not Thy act, but God’s…..” (Allah said, the killing of surrendered soldiers were done by the wish of Allah)

Quran-8:67—“It is not fitting for an Apostle that he should have prisoners of war until He thoroughly subdued the land….” (Allah insisting Prophet to kill all the prisoners, and should not keep any surrendered prisoners alive until He (Prophet) occupied entire Arabia .”

Quran-33:26- “And He brought those of the People of the Book [Jewish people of Banu Qurayza] who supported them from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts, some of them you slew (beheaded) and some you took prisoners (captive)”

APOSTATES SHOULD BE EXECUTED

4:88-91 Why should ye be divided into two parties about the Hypocrites? God hath upset them for their (evil) deeds. Would ye guide those whom God hath thrown out of the Way? For those whom God hath thrown out of the Way, never shalt thou find the Way. They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of God (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them;

THE OPPRESSION OF WOMEN ARE ETERNAL LAWS OF GOD

Koran sura 5.6 (repeated in sura 4.43 –re removing pollution before praying) And if ye are sick on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet or ye have contact with women and ye find not water, then go to clean high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it

“When it’s time to pray and you have just used the toilet or touched a woman, be sure to wash up. If you can’t find any water, just rub some dirt on yourself. 5:6

Qur’an 4:43 “Believers, approach not prayers if you are polluted (had sex, farted, attended call of nature or touched a woman).

2:223 Likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will;”

65.4 You can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age.

65.4 For those who have no courses (premenstrual underage girls i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months.

WOMEN ARE ½ HUMAN BEINGS AND STUPID CREATURES

4:11 God (thus) directs you as regards your Children’s (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females

4:176 They ask thee for a legal decision. Say: God directs (thus) about those who leave no descendants or ascendants as heirs. … if there are brothers and sisters, (they share), the male having twice the share of the female.

4:14 Women have very little intelligence—their own testimony is inadmissible in rape cases; in other matters their testimony is half to that of a man

MEN CAN MARRY UP TO FOUR WOMEN: MUHAMMAD CAN HAVE UNLIMITED WIVES

Men can marry up to four women if they treat them equally; unlimited forcible concubines permitted

In Islam, not only are men allowed to practice polygamy, but they may also capture women in war and use them as sex slaves. This is considered morally legitimate according to the Quran. In other words, non-Muslim women have no right to be free from the horror of slavery and serial rape by Muslim military men.

4:3 Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice.

Muhammad can go beyond the four-wife restriction, can treat his own wives and sex slaves unequally

33:50-52 O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom God has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large);

EVIL PARADISE

An evil Paradise of big breasted, big eyed Hurs to be sexually molested for all eternity as a reward for those who slay and are slain in the service of God.

9:111 “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden ( Paradise ) will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain”

“As for the righteous (Muslims)…We (Allah) shall wed them to beautiful virgins with lustrous eyes” – Q 44:51-54

BRUTAL AND INHUMANE INJUSTICE OF GOD

“Lewd” women should be punished with life imprisonment

4:15 If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence of four (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or God ordain for them some (other) way.

It is unclear what “lewdness” actually means. This verse is so open-ended, almost any woman could potentially be accused of lewdness and sentenced to a life of house arrest, except ultraconservative women who never do anything to offend strict Muslim men.

Stealing should be punished by amputation of hands

5:41 As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from God, for their crime: and God is Exalted in power.

When a person has no hands, they probably cannot earn a living anymore, so they will end up as a beggar on the street. That doesn’t seem very beneficial to society. Also, before medical sanitation and anesthesia, amputation of the hands was in many cases the equivalent of a death sentence.

Adultery and fornication must be punished by flogging with a hundred stripes.

24:2 The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by God, if ye believe in God and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment.

This verse leaves no other option for Muslims who believe in the divine origin of the Quran. It specifically says they must not have mercy on people who have committed adultery or fornication, and that this brutal punishment of 100 lashes is “prescribed by God.” However, since other verses in the Quran specifically allow men to have sex slaves, the horrible crime of serial rape against a non- Muslim is allowed.

IS IT RATIONAL – IS IT A REASONABLE HUMAN THOUGHT

Does anyone truly believe that God would have as His Prophet for His one and only true religion a criminal – Muhammad and teachings of slavery, rape, murder etc. Is this a rational, reasonable human thought that God would be a criminal involved in these evil criminal acts.

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His followers (believers) in His one and only true religion to require His believers to murder unbelievers after giving them a warning to convert or pay a submission tax. Is this rational ? Is this reasonable?

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His followers (believers) in His one and only true religion who slay and are slain in His service to ascend to an evil Paradise of big breasted, big eyed virgins (Hurs) that they can sexually molest with eternal hard ons for all eternity in the presence of God who teaches you how to engage in orgies, group sex. Virgins that re-generate as virgins after each sex act. Is this rational ? Is this reasonable? How can you be normal and believe that by fulfilling Kornic teaching 9:111 (quoting again) – “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain” you will go to this demented sexual whorehouse of God and not directly to hell and damnation.

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion with such an evil sexually depraved Paradise . Is this rational ? Is this reasonable?

Is it a rational, reasonable human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His followers (believers) in His one and only true religion to enslave the unbelievers, breed and sell them. Is this rational ? Is this reasonable?

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His male followers (believers) in His one and only true religion to rape unbelievers and gang rape them. Is this rational ? Is this reasonable?

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His followers (believers) in His one and only true religion to marry up to 4 women and His
Prophet to marry as many women as he desired and own and rape his slaves. Is this rational ? Is this reasonable?

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion were women are evil, vile creatures – ½ human beings. Is this rational ? Is this reasonable?

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His followers (believers) in His one and only true religion to require His believers to share the booty gained from the looted property of the unbelievers and from the sale of slaves with God Himself. Is this rational ? Is this reasonable?

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His followers (believers) in His one and only true religion to amputate hands or flog to death (100 lashes is death) for robbery or adultery.

Is it a rational human thought that God would create a religion that allowed His followers (believers) in His one and only true religion to murder freemen, slaves and women in retaliation for someone killing one of their freemen, slaves, and women.

We can go on and on.

THE ANSWER IS ABSOLUTELY NOT. IT IS NOT RATIONAL. IT IS NOT REASONABLE. THERE IS NO SUCH CRIMINAL GOD.

Islam was the invention and creation of Muhammad. There was no Allah. The Koran is the teachings of Muhammad and not any God. By not exposing the truth of Islam, and trying to be politically correct and not be labeled as a racist or Islamaphobic , these people utilizing these terms are doing us all a grave disservice. By perpetrating the myth of a hijacking and perversion of the teachings of Islam, they are granting Islam – legitimacy.

Islam is totally and completely bogus – a sham and a fraud.

P.V. Exclusive: IslamoFascism Awareness Week – Dennis Prager Stuns Them at UCSB

By Evrviglnt | October 26, 2007

Dennis Prager ready to speak.I made the drive up the coast tonight to see Dennis Prager speak at the University of California Santa Barbara. He was invited by the College Republicans, and he did not disappoint. This week is an emotional one for the college left – the bubble they live in has been punctured by an army of eloquent conservatives fanning out throughout the country to unveil a sensitive topic – Islamofascism. The crowd that packed Girvetz Theatre was amazingly behaved, and much of the credit for that has to go to Prager – he charmed the crowd into submission, and a wry smile came to his face when the last questioner of the night complained that she “didn’t like being manipulated.”

His speech centered on the values America must believe in to beat radical Islam, The crowd was well behaved. and the first 25 minutes were spent prying the word fascism from the scabbard of the Bush haters. There was a palpable angst in the room as he pounded home the message that Islamofascism was the description of 10% of the Islamic community (which was still 100 million, he said), not every Muslim, and to insist that Islamofascism Awareness Week was simply a “smokescreen” for an all out assault on Islam was purposefully simplistic. He then took the opportunity to lecture the students on just how insular the university environment was. They only heard one side of any issue most of the time, and that in terms of wisdom, they were just large kindergartners, a critique that sent nervous laughter around a room full of puffed up kinder-llectuals. Continuing, he said that this controlled environment led to a distorted understanding of morality, and ultimately the West needed to believe in its moral system if it was ever to stand up to extremist Islam. The dwindling influence of Western values on immigrants in Europe was a testament to this kind of impotence. He wrapped up the hour long soliloquy with a message to the Muslims in the audience. He said that liberalism was no friend to the cause of moderate Islam. The left had let millions of Muslims die in Afghanistan, and would do the same with those being murdered in Iraq and in the Sudan – history proved that. Today’s Left befriended them now because it was politically advantageous to do so. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is how they saw things – they hated Bush, Muslims should feel victimized by his war against Islam – it was a match concocted by the jaundiced. Normally the left should be outraged by the sexism, oppression and homosexual intolerance found widespread in Wahhabi Islam, but they were silent in the face of actions that ought to horrify them. Hatred of President Bush had frozen the moral compass that traditionally led the idealistic liberal.

When he was done, they rushed to the mics.The question and answer period was an hour long and it sure felt like it. Dennis Prager sailed through it, shifting from pointed argument to playful bantor regardless of the hostility rising from the interrogator; it was fun to see those that obviously despised his message chuckle at his word play. But the challenges were predictable. When the lines formed after the speech, every green shirt in the crowd looked to be standing with notes in hand (green was the color of dissent). The first question came from a Muslim student – he railed against the fascist label and insisted Israel and America were the fascist aggressors in a world otherwise peaceful. The next man at the mike was a disheveled suit waving a book emblazoned with the title “The Israeli Lobby.” He said he would follow Dennis around until he interviewed the authors on his show about the fact that Jews were running American foreign policy and that Jews like Dennis formed a “fifth column” loyal only to Israel. Dennis took it well, but called the man an antisemite for such ignorant views, which so enraged the man that the police officers who were at every exit slowly moved to surrounded him. Someone yelled “Don’t tase him, bro!” and everyone laughed. Then Dennis yelled “Tase him, tase him!” and the laughter doubled.

Students were hung up on the Islamofascist moniker – in their minds there was onlyThese two Hamas tools were groaning all night. one fascist in the world today, and he was sitting in the white house. They wondered why Dennis was trying to slander the whole Islamic religion, and why he dismissed the Israeli hunting of innocent Palestinians and the support by Christians of Bush’s war on Iraq as not equal to the “overhyped” reports of Muslim violence in the Western media. Dennis demolished such relativistic notions of morality, explained that he viewed the Iraq war as a moral war, and explained again the import of unhinged reactions by Muslims over a cartoon whereas Christians endured a crucifix drowned in urine with only calls for a boycott. Moderate Muslims needed to take back their religion, he repeated, and groans erupted as the green bandannas around the room shook their heads in disgust. When another dismayed student bemoaned our loss of support from the international community, Dennis slammed the international community as a moral vacuum, having done nothing in situations of such depravity that failure to confront them proved utter corruption or cowardice. The crowd was buzzing when he announced that in those cases where evil ran rampant, the only ones to step up were decent countries willing to pick up arms and confront it, and that included America, and that was why America was superior to so many other countries. Such appeals to ‘jingoistic militarism’ had peaceniks gritting their teeth, but the rest of us applauded his words.

Prager answered all the questions he was asked.There was the obligatory global warming nutburger who found yet another chance to remind everyone that we’re all gonna die, and the antisemite burst through his J.C. Penney suit once again over a pointed remark by Prager about the prospects for peace depending upon Palestinians stopping the indoctrination their children with morning cartoons teaching them to kill the Jews, who “were the offspring of monkeys and pigs.” Aside from a few shouts and fists raised above heads as if in celebration of ‘Hamas power,’ the students at UCSB were great and the night came off without a hitch.

After reading Blackfive’s review of David Horowitz at Michigan, I really wondered what we expected to accomplish this week confronting Islamofascism. Was it enough to bring to a intellectually stale university environment the news that there is an evil portion of Islam running rampant, and that decent people ought not to fear grabbing for their weapons in defense of freedom? This war against extremism is in many ways a defensive war against a brooding, calculating enemy, and it’s difficult to see the sacrifices made by our bravest being diluted by media bias or clever insurgent public relations. Ultimately we need Muslims to resolve the murderous streak that runs through their religion, we can’t do it for them. Moderate Muslims must take back their religion. Having speakers like Dennis Prager remind us all that the Western values of freedom, respect and tolerance are worth inculcating is an important first step.
