FOR the most part, those of us who are well versed – properly schooled, if you will – in the ins and outs of Islam and its inextricable attachment to blood understand why, tragically, countless non-Muslims are totally confused about Islam’s central and non-negotiable murderous dictates. Imperatives.
EFFECTIVELY, befuddlement prevails in the west, akin to “deer in headlights” syndrome. More specifically, the following “gems” add to the mental distortion, and they are courtesy of HUSSEIN Obama and his kindred spirits. Twisted.
1. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”
2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
3. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
4. “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
5. “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
6. “Islam has always been part of America”
7. “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
8. “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
9. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
10. “I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”
11. “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
12. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
13. “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
14. “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
15. “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”
16. “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”
17. “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”
18. “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”
19. “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
20. “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
OMINOUSLY, demonstrably, this inability “to see from there to here” creates for western leaders (both elected and non-elected) what amounts to “doubling-down” as a “tactical strategy.” Boxed-in. Locked-in. As such, it must be recognized how a preponderance of their (mis)schooling (in this particular arena) went so awry, that which will assist westerners in deconstructing their Arab/Muslim apologias. Invariably, this leads the reader to the tutelage of the late (non-lamented) prof Edward Said – may he burn in pagan moon-god Allah’s hell-hole!
IT is to this intended (mis)education process that those who should know better (mis)learned their lessons. To wit, they are incapable of handling the gravest threat to the west since World War 2 – Islamic-based terrorism! Just think of it this way: should anyone expect a person who is blindfolded to be able to save themselves, pointedly, never mind others, while walking down a gangplank into shark-infested waters? Hardly.
EVEN so, before readers can internalize how the west – with America, as its titular leader – got from there to here, know that the aforementioned non-lamented prof (a so-called “Palestinian”) bears out-sized blame for educational malfeasance. Wait and see. Of course, scores of others were (still are) in league.
IN tandem, it is along this site’s continuum of truth-telling that the leadership and self-appointed elite must also be subdivided into the following two categories: those who will always be ideologically predispositioned to viewing Islam as a “holy” religion, regardless of this and that heinous act of Allahu Akbar terror; juxtaposed against others who delve into this (more than thorny) subject matter without preconceived biases, genuinely, seeking to understand the maze-like labyrinth of the Arab/Muslim supranational collective, aka ummah.
IT is under this dangerous umbrella that the “unholy” prof reigned supreme, perched aloft at New York City’s Columbia U, a well-known leftist-driven and Arabist-embracing fiefdom! Yes, yours truly knows this Morningside Heights terrain all too intimately.
Columbia University’s English Department may seem a surprising place from which to move the world, but this is what Professor Edward Said accomplished. He not only transformed the West’s perception of the Israel-Arab conflict, he also led the way toward a new, post-socialist life for leftism in which the proletariat was replaced by “people of color” as the redeemers of humankind. During the ten years that have passed since his death there have been no signs that his extraordinary influence is diminishing.
According to a 2005 search on the utility “Syllabus finder,” Said’s books were assigned as reading in eight hundred and sixty-eight courses in American colleges and universities (counting only courses whose syllabi were available online). These ranged across literary criticism, politics, anthropology, Middle East studies, and other disciplines including postcolonial studies, a field widely credited with having grown out of Said’s work. More than forty books have been published about him, including even a few critical ones, but mostly adulatory, such as The Cambridge Introduction to Edward Said, published seven years after his death of leukemia in 2003. Georgetown University, UCLA, and other schools offer courses about him. A 2001 review for the Guardian called him “arguably the most influential intellectual of our time.”
The book that made Edward Said famous was Orientalism, published in 1978 when he was forty-three. Said’s objective was to expose the worm at the core of Western civilization, namely, its inability to define itself except over and against an imagined “other.” That “other” was the Oriental, a figure “to be feared . . . or to be controlled.” Ergo, Said claimed that “every European, in what he could say about the Orient, was . . . a racist, an imperialist, and almost totally ethnocentric.” Elsewhere in the text he made clear that what was true for Europeans held equally for Americans.
This echoed a theme of 1960s radicalism that was forged in the movements against Jim Crow and against America’s war in Vietnam, namely that the Caucasian race was the scourge of humanity. Rather than shout this accusation from a soapbox, as others had done, Said delivered it in tones that awed readers with erudition. The names of abstruse contemporary theoreticians and obscure bygone academicians rolled off pages strewn with words that sent readers scurrying to their dictionaries. Never mind that some of these words could not be found in dictionaries (“paradeutic”) or that some were misused (“eschatological” where “scatological” was the intended meaning); never mind that some of the citations were pretentious (“the names of Levi-Strauss, Gramsci, and Michel Foucault drop with a dull thud,” commented historian J. H. Plumb, reviewing the book for the New York Times”)—never mind any of this, the important point that evoked frissons of pleasure and excitement was that here was a “person of color” delivering a withering condemnation of the white man and, so to speak, beating him at his own game of intellectual elegance….continue reading Said’s fabricated and bastardized historical narrative, that which has poisoned generations of students and many of their profs!
YES, know thy world history well. Indeed, this is a mandatory prerequisite – at least, it should be – in order to recognize when it is being flipped upside its head. Revisioned.
ALL of which brings us back to the scourge of Islam, despite the jive-talking “intellectuals” (mainly, but not exclusively, disciples of Said) via their back-benching cover of its bloody roots. Yes, the continuous and onerous shell game of “blame and shame”, that which is totally directed at westerners, albeit, in a professorial way!
IN this regard, let’s place our (western) cards on the table, and sans any sophisticated sophistry re the aforementioned scourge of Islam. Period.
IT is not for nothing that soldiers for Allah, from “cradle to grave”, are shedding infidel blood on a global scale. Still yet, to understand the roots of their behavior, a few Islamic cultural “norms” must be exposed, and that’s even before Koranic underpinnings are explored.
(Islamic militant stands over Shurgawi’s bloodied corpse and holds the soldier’s head aloft. Crowded around him young boys, some of whom gaze with interest at the body, while others pose for photographs)
ISLAM’S CULTURAL/FAMILIAL “NORMS”:
- How many understand the psycho-sexual components of Islamic doctrine, duly described by Dr. Nancy Kobrin, a psychoanalytic expert on Islamic suicide terrorism? If not, time is of the essence: “The Psychological Roots of Islamic Terrorism.”
- And, even though one can fill book after book with the unfathomable (that is, by non-Islamic standards) ecstatic reactions (both male and female) exhibited by Allah’s Muslim Terrorists when infidels are slaughtered on behalf of Allah, there are enumerable “motherly” ones (read: non-anomalies) which stand out for obvious reasons.
- Concomitantly, is it any wonder that Islam’s kiddies are ripe for terrorizing others, in so far that pricing sex with them is a cultural “norm”, again, even before Koranic underpinnings are understood? Phew.
RESULTANT, ISIS’s bloody swathe must be viewed through its underlying theological roots, and not for what non-Muslims wish it to be, that is, a “distortion” of Islam! Know that it IS the absolute literal interpretation of this “holy” religion. Inestimably, millions upon millions of Muslims adhere to said immutable doctrine. Simply, it is the return to a seventh-century lifestyle and legal dogma, in the expectation of ushering in the Islamic-driven apocalypse. Incontestably. In the interim, their main goal is the reestablishment of the Caliphate through the submission of one population after another, consequentially, conquering massive swathes of territory.
INDEED, for example, when Islamic State leaders exhort to their followers to “stone the enemy”, “poison their wells”, destroy “infidel crops”, etc., these are Koranic-based instructions based upon the “laws of jihad.”
INSTRUCTIVELY, see: Crush Your Enemies!
IN reality, ISIS is as tied to Islamic doctrine as pigs are to their sh-t. Inextricably. Emphatically, when apologists opine that ISIS distorts the “peaceful” tenets of Islam, that it is “not Islamic”, it is comparable to what liars, fools, or knaves are wont to do – but on steroids!
AND anyone who still believes that making nice-nice with Allah’s Muslim Terrorists – be they so-called “refugees” or what not – will buy them respite from the terror, well, stop hallucinating. It ain’t gonna happen. Never and never!! Mind you, the type of behavior described within The Rebel video (linked above) is just a teeny tiny taste of what they have in store for their infidel western neighbors. Again, millions upon millions ascribe to the Koran’s literal interpretation. Understood?
