Author’s note: This is the second of a three part essay dealing with Islamic terrorism and what can be expected regarding Islam’s ultimate fate. These articles are written in memoriam of the 9-11 atrocity’s tenth anniversary and are dedicated to the 3,000 innocent Americans who were murdered on that fateful day.
Why Will it End?
Short answer ― Islam has “unhappy ending” written all over it.
Tragically, for Islam there is no possibility of a happy ending. It has often been said that the only peace which Islam ― famously known as “The Religion of Peace” ― offers anyone is the peace of the grave. Pakistan ― which means “land of the pure” ―provides the best evidence of this in that it is a prototypical Islamic nation intended to mirror the everyday rule of shari’a law. That country’s horrific level of almost daily slaughter and mayhem clearly demonstrates how ― even if Islam were to attain global ascendancy ― the violence and terrorism would never stop.
The Islamic concept of takfir (“impure”), literally assures this in that a more devout Muslim is religiously sanctioned for killing a less pure Muslim. This lack of purity could be interpreted as someone who does not pray all five times a day or consumes food during daylight hours over the course of Ramadan. The possible paths descending into Islamic “impurity” are as numerous as they are varied and it is an ironclad guarantee that Islam will always be torn by internecine violence.
Exacerbating this situation is the West’s collective inability to discern Islam in general and why there is so little hope for it. It echoes the ancient parable about a group of blind men describing an elephant.
The blind man who feels a leg says the elephant is like a tree trunk; the one who feels the tail says the elephant is like a rope; the one who feels the trunk says the elephant is like a snake; the one who feels the ear says the elephant is like a flag; the one who feels the belly says the elephant is like a wall; and the one who feels the tusk says the elephant is like a spear.
Much to the glee of Muslims everywhere, most Westerners are still a lot like those blind men and the pachyderm. Islam is so voluminous and just sufficiently varied enough that it seems to defy description. This is especially so for the less informed who can but bear shocked witness to the endless discord and bloodshed that pervades the Islamic world. Only after gaining an understanding of Islam’s core doctrines does one obtain adequate perspective such that the elephant finally begins to emerge. The 9-11 atrocity was Western civilization’s first dawning awareness that the Islamic elephant is like a spear.
Islam is all of the above elephantine descriptions. It is a veritable tree trunk of a totalitarian creed whose roots extend over a millennium deep into recorded history. It is also a rope by which unsuspecting cultures have hung themselves many times over were they so foolish or unsuspecting as to disregard Islam’s historic threat. Like the asp which Cleopatra drew to her breast, Islam has routinely slithered away from history’s spotlight as the cause of ruined civilizations, genocides, mass enslavements and untold human suffering which transcend anything Europe or America ever aspired to in their wildest dreams.
Islam also manifests as a flag around which this world’s criminal elements continue to rally under a banner of religiously sanctioned murder, rape, pedophilia, looting and thieving which, terrorism aside ― as if that was even possible ― fills police blotters and drains global coffers with an almost enviable consistency unmatched by all but the most accomplished career politicians. Like any wall, Islam continually and everywhere builds enclaves which exclude unbelievers within their own domains and barricades Muslims from influences both external and even the threat of internal “westernization” that just as often sees young Muslim women murdered by their own families in so-called “honor killings”.
Last but, most certainly, not least is the way that Islam is like a spear:
Islamic hijra has thrust Muslims deep within Western civilization only to see them infect every last institution with their steady subversion of Constitutional rights and basic liberties. Hackneyed cries of “racism” and “Islamophobia” ― as if a fear of Islam could ever be irrational ― are trotted out in response to every legitimate criticism of Islam; even as Muslims set about stifling free speech and freedom of expression around the world. At this spear’s sharp end are the over over 17,000 deadly terrorist attacks that have happened since the 9-11 atrocity.
Compounding all of this havoc are the Islamic “principles” of kitman and taqiyya. They amount to religiously sanctioned deceit and outright lying. As if this were not bad enough, the situation is further exacerbated by Mainstream Media’s adamant refusal to provide accurate and unbiased reporting about Islam’s seditious goal of toppling Constitutional democracies throughout the West.
Islam remains a predatory entity that has not been able to establish any self-sustaining degree of industry or technology for almost a millennium. It has relied upon piracy and looting for nearly the entire span of its existence. Even now the MME (Muslim Middle East) is heavily reliant upon foreign engineering and industrial facilities management in order to further develop and maintain its petroleum extraction operations. If the MME did not have access to this Western technology and was obliged to invent it from scratch, all of their oil would still be in the ground, even today.
One immense irony is that ― despite Islam’s aspirations for a global caliphate ― it is unhealthy for too many unbelievers to be converted into Muslims. Once this happens, the jizya (“poll tax”) can no longer be collected, nor can possessions, businesses or estates be confiscated so readily. There have already occurred phases in Islamic history where further conversion of natives living in occupied lands was discouraged as it interfered with the appropriation of wealth that is central to financing more jihad. It is also vital to remember that any refusal to pay the jizya is punishable by immediate death.
Conversely, there is a twin principal to jizya known as hijra which derives from the Arabic word for “migration” or “flight”. In this case, it is a that strategy involves flooding Muslim immigrants into those Western nations which cannot be overcome militarily. Displaying a regular pattern of behavior, these new arrivals ― in strict accord with Islamic law ― refuse to assimilate or integrate and form exclusively Muslim enclaves while gradually instituting shari’a law whenever possible.
This form of demographic warfare is commonly known as “stealth” or “soft” jihad and it is the strategy of choice for many within Islam who seek to conquer the West. In fact, there are Muslims who condemn the late Osama bin Laden for having prematurely tipped Islam’s hand with the 9-11 atrocity along with other subsequent terrorist attacks in Bali, Madrid, Beslan and London; preferring, instead, the gradual overthrow of indigenous cultures through demographic displacement.
This is nothing other than a process of colonization and it is reflected in how non-Muslims are routinely driven out of these enclaves through threats of violence, boycotts and extortion. Furthermore, when a sufficient population density is attained, even visiting non-Muslims are subjected to physical assault and threats of violence should they stray into one of these “no-go zones”. Due to Islamic polygamy, such population densities arrive far sooner than typical demographics for the host nations involved.
Once established, there begins a process of draining financial support from local or central government. This is in addition to criminal predation upon surrounding neighborhoods in the form of robbery, theft and extortion. Due to purdah ― the confinement and isolation of Muslim women ― typically there is a surge in the pimping, sexual assault and rape of non-Muslim women in areas around these enclaves. Minors are especially vulnerable to this because of how Islam regards Mohammad’s marriage to his six year-old child bride, Aisha, as a model of perfect conduct. Central to any understanding of Islam is that this entire process is one of obtaining tribute (jizya) from unbelievers.
This tribute is regarded as being their automatic due in that Muslims consider themselves to be the world’s Master Race. A proper understanding of Islam cannot be had without recognizing this one central point. Augmenting this process of encroachment are other criminal activities such a drug dealing and establishing businesses with the strict aim of underreporting income to evade taxes. All of these activities result in a disproportionate consumption of taxpayer monies even while shirking anything remotely approaching their own fair share of contribution to the tax base. Again, this overconsumption of taxpayer monies is regarded as a form of extracting tribute and nothing else.
To illustrate just how corrosive this process of hijra is, we shall examine the huge influx of “refugees” arriving at Italy’s tiny island of Lampedusa. To date, more than 50,000 have landed, the vast majority of them being Muslims of North and Central African origin. A little “cocktail napkin” math will quickly demonstrate the impact of these “immigrants” and their colonization of Europe.
Without including the cost of erecting or furnishing shelters for these 50,000 individuals, just the processing cost per person easily approaches €1,000. This processing cost, multiplied by 50,000 suddenly gyrates into €50 million. Remember, no food costs, utilities, security or health care expenses are factored into maintenance of the refugee centers. This is just the paperwork costs, including the salaries of those bureaucrats who process these “refugees”.
Once released into the Schengen Agreement countries of Europe, these individuals are free to apply for social benefits, subsidized housing and also to receive medical treatment. In some countries such subsidies easily approach €30,000 per year. If 50,000 “immigrants” receive just €30,000 per year in combined benefits that sum represents €1.5 billion in social service outlays annually. This disregards the fact that such newcomers are often chronically unemployable and ― as is too often the case with Muslims ― voluntarily illiterate, refusing to even learn the host country’s language so as to reduce any chance of assimilation or integration.
None of this addresses the gigantic outlays related to apprehending, prosecuting and incarcerating the criminal elements amongst these “refugees”. Throughout Europe, Muslims are disproportionately represented in rape, violent crime and imprisonment statistics. The expense of this criminality reaches into extra billions of Euros per year and does not cover property damage, victim rehabilitation and other ancillary expenses. Nor does this speak to the same criminal practices and consequences resulting from ostensibly legal immigration into Europe by tens of millions of Muslims over the past few decades.
Another relatively hidden yet devastating factor lies in how Muslims remain the world’s largest group that practices consanguineous marriage, typically to first cousins. Studies in Great Britain reveal that Pakistani immigrants ― some of the most dedicated practitioners of consanguineous marriage ― are up to thirteen times more likely than the general population to have children with recessive disorders. Due to this preference in marriage practices, Muslims experience some of the highest birth defect rates in the entire world.
Try to imagine the disproportionate drain on taxpayer funded hospitals and outpatient services that these deformed, retarded and immunologically compromised children pose to Western societies. Again, this is merely one more way of extracting tribute from an already financially hemorrhaging West. Far more sinister are studies that indicate how these retarded children often are prime candidates to be used in carrying out bomb vest attacks in MME countries. How soon before that tactic is adopted here?
All of this represents an unparalleled Islamic encroachment upon Western civilization unknown since the Moorish occupation of pre-colonial era Spain. This invasion by Islam will continue unabated until the West manifests sufficient political will to reject how Muslims march under false religious colors. Long ago, Europe threw off the shackles of emerging Christian theocracy. How then, is it that Islam’s own brand of hideously blatant theocracy cannot be named for what it most clearly is?
If there is no separation of church and state, it’s not a religion, it’s a state.
Theocracy of any stripe is the penultimate enemy of human liberty and freedom. Among all forms of governance it has the absolute worst historic track record and is unrivaled for its death tolls. Why so few are willing to rip the mask from Islam’s putative status as a religion and label it as the tyrannous political ideology that it obviously is remains one of the most puzzling questions in recent years.
Equally astonishing is the almost total lack of acrimony being show towards Islam despite innumerable terrorist atrocities and its near total violation of human rights as we know them. Mainstream Media’s own conspiracy of silence regarding this constant affront to civilization allows Islam to punch well above its weight and duck the sound drubbing that it so richly deserves. The neglect of this much needed retaliation bodes ill for, not just the West, but Islam as well.
The longer that this farce is allowed to play out, the higher that the stakes become. No better example of this exists than the imminent acquisition of nuclear weapons by Iran. Should this be allowed to happen, it will go down in history as the single greatest strategic military blunder of this new century. Regardless of its Shi’ite swaddling, Iran is the modern face of political Islam replete with sponsorship of international terrorism, genocidal doctrine, abject gender apartheid and the destruction of jahiliyya (pre-Islamic) antiquities. Iran embodies Islamic theocracy writ large and is a pluperfect example of what to expect from any nation that thoroughly embraces political Islam.
Furthermore, there is no possible way for Islam to accept the West’s primacy of manmade law. It flies in the face of shari’a which has been handed down by Allah and cannot be countermanded. More so, any such acceptance of democracy would diminish the dominance and validity of shari’a law, something which has always been punishable by death. Furthermore, the prosperity of Western civilization represents a direct threat to Islam. Difficult as it is to imagine, the benisons of modern industrialization are regarded by some within Islam as being toxic to jihad and Islam’s aspirations of establishing a global caliphate.
There are even Muslim religionists who declare that prosperity is bad for Islam. Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda both viewed the comfort and stability of Western-induced prosperity as a potent distraction that could make Muslims stray from the path of jihad.
What [deceased second in al Qaeda command] Al-Ayyeri sees now is a “clean battlefield” in which Islam faces a new form of unbelief. This, he labels “secularist democracy.” This threat is “far more dangerous to Islam” than all its predecessors combined. The reasons, he explains in a whole chapter, must be sought in democracy’s “seductive capacities.” This form of “unbelief” persuades the people that they are in charge of their destiny and that, using their collective reasoning, they can shape policies and pass laws as they see fit. That leads them into ignoring the “unalterable laws” promulgated by God for the whole of mankind, and codified in the Islamic shariah (jurisprudence) until the end of time.
The goal of democracy, according to Al-Ayyeri, is to “make Muslims love this world, forget the next world and abandon jihad . “If established in any Muslim country for a reasonably long time, democracy could lead to economic prosperity, which, in turn, would make Muslims “reluctant to die in martyrdom” in defense of their faith. [emphasis added]
This is one of the few reasonable explanations for why Muslim majority nations continue to be among the most undeveloped and technologically backward lands on earth. Poverty and deprivation are used as levers to drive jihad. Envy and jealousy are converted into hatred in order to blame the West for Islam’s manifold shortcomings. If further proof is needed, a cursory glance at Israel tells the entire story. It, too, was once arid and under-populated but in just a handful of decades has become an agricultural paradise, technological powerhouse and bastion of functional democracy amid a sea of Arab tyrannies.
As Winston Churchill noted about Islam, “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” This is why it is foredoomed to failure. Islam’s obsession with, and glorification of, death is just one signifier among many that herald its eventual demise. The harsh penalties and frequent resort to amputation or capital punishment all serve to belie Islam as “the religion of peace”. The vast majority of genocides, conflicts and outright wars being fought today are because of Islam and MME borders that literally drip with blood. Also few, if any, Muslim majority nations are not on record as severe violators of human rights.
The reputation of Muslims as predatory criminals and intensely parasitic occupiers all combines into a damning indictment of Islam. Its presence on earth only promises increased conflict, more atrocities, new genocides and unwarranted diversions of wealth that could better serve far more deserving causes. Finally, Islam is assembling too many enemies too fast to where they cannot be expected to keep pursuing their own petty quarrels instead of addressing the overarching threat of jihad. The complete and total inability of Islam to coexist with any legitimate faith or other culture presages a day when its numerous victims will band together in pursuit of an ultimate victory.
That is why it will end.
