The latest essay by our Israeli correspondent MC compares and contrasts the two modern totalitarian ideologies, Marxism and Islam, introducing the concept of “distributed tyranny” to describe the Islamic approach to totalitarian control.
Ways and Means
When the end justifies the means, then the way to proceed is not governed by external considerations such as honesty and integrity. This being so, both Islam and its sponsors on the Left can lie, cheat and murder their way to power.
Islam, the self-styled ‘religion of peace’, is actually a religion of submission, something completely different, but it suits the style of both socialists and Islamists to allow the semantics to deceive as many as are gullible.
Here in Sderot, these two religions of HATE come across loud and clear, missiles and mortars bridge the gap between Gaza and Sderot. With the IDF trying to play catch-up and not target civilians at the same time, this is especially difficult when the difference between civilians and fighters is intentionally blurred, and whilst the socialists lay their deadly poisonous lies across the journalistic landscape.
Hamas targets our children, when the missiles come over, it is nearly always at school time. But then Hamas has a stated aim of killing all Jews, no matter where or why. Whilst this is a legacy of the close relationship between the Palestinians and the Nazis so typified by Haj Amin al-Husseini, it is also supported in the Quran (alongside the killing of ALL Christians). However, whereas the Christians have adopted dhimmitude, the Israelis have chosen to fight back.
A rather refreshing view of the real history comes from the Trotskyist 4th International: “How the Jews Were Tricked: 4international in an Historical Series is Answering the Antisemites of Today”
Sometimes the Left can be startlingly honest.
I sometimes get the impression that the war in and around Israel tends to be encapsulated and divorced from the same struggles going on in Europe, USA and Australasia (along with Burma, China, Nigeria, Kenya and Russia to name but a few). But the big difference is that in Israel the shooting war started early on.
Israel is the proving ground for Jihad, the suicide bombings started here and spread over the rest of the world, the targeted murders too moved out from Israel.
But it was in Israel too that the ‘dhimmism’ started, land for
submission peace deals becoming a play on words. ‘Salaam’ in Arabic is very different to ‘Shalom’ in Hebrew, they are as different as Allah is from Yahovah, whose laws are set in stone. Allah is the ventriloquist’s dummy of Mohammed, producing ‘convenient’ laws at just the right moment, but only through his designated mouthpiece (Mohammed). At the basis of Islam is this circular reasoning.
Allah is a god who cannot protect himself, and requires barbaric acts of men to defend him. He is a god who proclaims a death sentence on all who fall from the faith, and has human henchmen who act as judge, jury and executioner.
As for women:
“Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur’an” (Tabari: IX.113)
Since women are domestic animals, logically the old stock can be replaced by new one, as Tabari and Ibn Ishaq recorded.
— From “Unmasking Mohammed” by Sujit Das
The Islamic concept is of women is as ‘Halal meat’, and there are some hadith which make vile reading concerning Mohammed’s attitude to women, attitudes that Muslim males are encouraged to emulate.
This gives the socialist sponsors of Islam some severe headaches — feminism or Islamism? So far, the choice has come down on the side of Islamism; Islam is capable of providing the chaos of proxy war, the ‘sturm and drang’ that feminism cannot abide but that is so necessary for ‘change’. Feminism emasculates males, but Islam promotes absolute male superiority. Feminism has rendered our society unable to defend itself, so the masculinity of Islam is met by feminist acquiescence and appeasement. This in turn causes disintegration of society, the chaos of a seventh century bandit and desertification culture mixing with twentieth century ‘polite’ society has the effect of pouring water into concentrated sulphuric acid and resulting in a spitting, seething corrosive mess, exceedingly dangerous to all exposed flesh.
This socialist action is provocative and much as socialism is wont to do, but socialism has already proven itself unable to ‘ride the tiger’. There is no reason on earth why a dead tyrant should be any more controllable than the more usual socialist ‘live’ tyrants. Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot and the other cultic tyrants rose to absolute power, but then consolidated that power by killing those who brought them to power in the first place. Islam however brings us a new concept, that of distributed tyranny.
No longer is power held centrally; there is no focal point to this particular tyranny. It is the tyranny of soldier ants, each ant with a malignant search-and-destroy instinct deriving from the earliest nurture. A life built around Quran, sunna and hadith is a life that has become devoid of the milk of human kindness, much like a life built around the works of Marx, Engels and Lenin.
But whilst individuals fail, not so the Ummah.
Islam is a lifestyle built upon power, sex and wealth, each of which can be a profound motivator in the life of a male. The cost of achieving power, sex and wealth is to lift the sword in jihad — no sword, then no power, no sex and no wealth.
The aim of Islam is to subdue our countries, kill the men and take their possessions, make sex slaves of their women and children and impose a bent law regime (shariah) to uphold Muslim male superiority and preserve the status quo.
Socialism, once more grossly overestimating its own virility, wants to use Islam to evolve the ‘new man’, the modern serf, a system where they, the socialists, are the new aristocracy, and along the line sometime, they will have to deal with Islam.
… The foundation of leftist thinking goes something like this:
“I am more clever than most people. Therefore I am probably more clever than you are. Because I am probably more clever than you are (my IQ is 110), then I am more likely to be right. Therefore you must be wrong so I can ignore your opinion. (You must therefore do as I dictate because I obviously know best what must be done.) If you do not do as I say, then you must be harassed and cajoled, bullied and bashed until you do, and I will enjoy the bullying and the bashing anyway.”
The idea of ‘useful idiots’ is attributed to Lenin, but viewed from my side of the fence, these useful idiots are playing an extremely dangerous game, when one is too ignorant to understand the difference between a domestic cat and a leopard, then the consequences of playing ‘kitten’ are unpredictable.
Leopards are killing machines, and they kill primates, just like us. They have been doing it for thousands of years and they are well adapted to it. They will lie in wait, maybe up a tree, take the victim by surprise, bite its head to smash the skull, whilst clawing its body with the hind legs.
The ways and means of leopards make no compromises, they don’t change their spots — until, that is, the hunters come.
