Disturbing Dhimmitude And Incompetence On The Part Of The US Government

As most of you probably do not know, the cartoonist, Molly Norris, who started the Facebook page and event “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” is no longer with us. (I wrote about it here.) Oh, she is still alive, but she has been forced by Muslims to change her identity, quit her job, and move to an undisclosed location under a new identity. And, to make matters worse, she had to pay for this! As pointed out by Robert Spencer in “The Jihad Against A Seattle Cartoonist“:

“On the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI,” the Seattle Weekly explained, “she is, as they put it, ‘going ghost’: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program–except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab.”

This is an absolute travesty of justice, and a complete failure of the government of the United States. After all, what is the purpose of a government? Contrary to the increasingly popular opinion that government exists to take from the producers and give to the poor, lazy slobs who refuse to take responsibility for their own lives and finances, the primary purpose of a government is to protect it’s people. What makes the case of Molly Norris even more appalling is the fact that the Imam Rauf, the Islamic scoundrel who is trying to rub 911 in the face of every non-Muslim American by building a triumphalist Mosque on the site of the 911 atrocity, is getting police protection by the New York City police department according to the above referenced article by Robert Spencer. And, an even more atrocious miscarriage of justice is that

Gainsville, Florida authorities have announced that they plan to bill the abortive Koran-burner Terry Jones $180,000 for security costs for the Koran-burning event that he ultimately called off after a blizzard of international publicity, all negative – despite the fact that they never bothered to warn Jones beforehand that he would be footing the bill.

We are loosing the battle against Islam and Sharia Law. While burning a Koran is a silly thing, it should also be a harmless act. It is a symbolic act. By both burning Korans and publishing cartoons, freedom loving people are saying that they do not feel any special reverence for the Koran, Mohammad, or Islam. And, that is as it should be. The Koran is just a book. Would people riot if someone decided to burn a copy of “Mein Kampf”? I think not. And yet each is just the ravings of a of monomaniacal lunatic.

If Muslims, anywhere in the world, choose to act as infantile barbarians every time they feel that someone has insulted them or their pedophile founder, they need to “get over it.” To the extent that they behave badly, they need to be punished, just like any other criminals who burn, riot, rape, or murder. The West, if it is to survive, needs to realize that Islam is NOT just a religion, but, more importantly, it is an ideology and a system of government. The Dutch Parliamentarian, Geert Wilders, who is under constant police protection after making the film “Fitna” (see it in my sidebar), made a great speech in Germany over the weekend. He explained this difference between Islam and other religions.

Today I am here, however, to warn you for looming disunity. Germany’s national identity, its democracy and economic prosperity, is being threatened by the political ideology of Islam. In 1848, Karl Marx began his Communist Manifesto with the famous words: “A specter is haunting Europe – the specter of communism.” Today, another specter is haunting Europe. It is the specter of Islam. This danger, too, is political. Islam is not merely a religion, as many people seem to think: Islam is mainly a political ideology.

This insight is not new.

I quote from the bestselling book and BBC television series The Triumph of the West which the renowned Oxford historian J.M. Roberts wrote in 1985: “Although we carelessly speak of Islam as a ‘religion’; that word carries many overtones of the special history of western Europe. The Muslim is primarily a member of a community, the follower of a certain way, an adherent to a system of law, rather than someone holding particular theological views.” The Flemish Professor Urbain Vermeulen, the former president of the European Union of Arabists and Islamicists, too, points out that “Islam is primarily a legal system, a law,” rather than a religion.

The American political scientist Mark Alexander writes that “One of our greatest mistakes is to think of Islam as just another one of the world’s great religions. We shouldn’t. Islam is politics or it is nothing at all, but, of course, it is politics with a spiritual dimension, … which will stop at nothing until the West is no more, until the West has … been well and truly Islamized.”

These are not just statements by opponents of Islam. Islamic scholars say the same thing. There cannot be any doubt about the nature of Islam to those who have read the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith. Abul Ala Maududi, the influential 20th century Pakistani Islamic thinker, wrote – I quote, emphasizing that these are not my words but those of a leading Islamic scholar – “Islam is not merely a religious creed [but] a revolutionary ideology and jihad refers to that revolutionary struggle … to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth, which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam.”

Ali Sina, an Iranian Islamic apostate who lives in Canada, points out that there is one golden rule that lies at the heart of every religion – that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. In Islam, this rule only applies to fellow believers, but not to Infidels. Ali Sina says “The reason I am against Islam is not because it is a religion, but because it is a political ideology of imperialism and domination in the guise of religion. Because Islam does not follow the Golden Rule, it attracts violent people.”

A dispassionate study of the beginnings of Islamic history reveals clearly that Muhammad’s objective was first to conquer his own people, the Arabs, and to unify them under his rule, and then to conquer and rule the world. That was the original cause; it was obviously political and was backed by military force. “I was ordered to fight all men until they say ‘There is no god but Allah,’” Muhammad said in his final address. He did so in accordance with the Koranic command in sura 8:39: “Fight them until there is no more dissension and the religion is entirely Allah’s.”

According to the mythology, Muhammad founded Islam in Mecca after the Angel Gabriel visited him for the first time in the year 610. The first twelve years of Islam, when Islam was religious rather than political, were not a success. In 622, Muhammad emigrated to Yathrib, a predominantly Jewish oasis, with his small band of 150 followers. There he established the first mosque in history, took over political power, gave Yathrib the name of Medina, which means the “City of the Prophet,” and began his career as a military and a political leader who conquered all of Arabia. Tellingly, the Islamic calendar starts with the hijra, the migration to Medina – the moment when Islam became a political movement.

It is vital that we make this distinction between a normal religion, like Christianity, and a totalitarian political ideology like Islam. Islam must be stopped in its tracks and destroyed as a political ideology, way of life, and system of laws if civilization is to survive.
