Our Indian correspondent The Kafir examines the Islamic understanding of violence as a divine mission, and the reinforcement of that mission by every successful act of Islamic violence.
Islam, Violence, Kafirs, and the Future of Civilisation
by The Kafir
Starting in the year 2006, Ali Sina of Faith Freedom International and Javed Ahmed Ghamidi, a Pakistani scholar of Islam and one of its renowned clerics, debated Islam via email for the next couple of years. Javed Ahmed Ghamidi did not directly respond, instead his associate, Dr Khalid Zaheer, an associate professor of Islamic Studies and Ethics at Lahore University of Management Science (LUMS), responded on his behalf. The responses were written by Khalid Zaheer in consultation with Javed Ahmad Ghamidi. The whole debate is available in pdf form at the faithfreedom.org site for free download, and in book form at Amazon.
Javed Ahmed Ghamidi responded (through Khalid Zaheer, of course) to the charges against Islam by Ali Sina in the usual fashion of Muslims: by dismissing them, or by simply bringing up something similar about other religions.
But the most interesting point Javed Ahmed Ghamidi/Khalid Zaheer made was in response to the continuous pressing by Ali Sina to provide a single irrefutable piece of evidence of Islam’s divinity. The evidence they came up with was that Muhammad predicted the annihilation of the Meccans who were challenging him, and their annihilation did occur, also at the hands of Muhammad.
We kafirs have not paid much attention to this belief of Muslims: that Muhammad’s military victory over pagan Meccans proves the divinity of his prophetic mission. The fact that the two scholars of Islam could come up with this claim as the only evidence of the divinity of Islam, when challenged by an equally knowledgeable person like Ali Sina, tells us that this belief is almost universal among Muslims. The universality among Muslims of this belief will also become clear in the following paragraphs.
This belief has some very serious implications for us kafirs. If the victory of Muhammad in his war with kafirs is proof of the divinity of Islam, then it follows that every victory of Muslims over kafirs secured by any means reinforces this belief. Therefore, not only the does the war have to continue until no kafirs are around, because the war of Muslims with kafirs is divine, and divinely ordained (Quran 2.216, 2.191, 8.39, 9,.29, 9.111), but every victory, every advancement, every surrender/concession by kafirs only reinforces the belief of Muslims that they have to continue the war. Every retreat in any sphere by kafirs only indicates the path toward the final triumph of Islam. Every act of violence against kafirs by any Muslim is then just an offering to the divine, the obeying of the divine command. And every concession by kafirs after such acts of violence is some more affirmation of the divinity of Islam.
That is, every victory of Muslims in a war against kafirs, irrespective of the apparent and immediate cause of war, and every act of violence that causes suffering of kafirs, reinforces the belief that caused the war/violence in the first place, whetting the appetite of Muslims worldwide for more wars, and more violence.
Conversely, every crushing defeat of Muslims at the hands of kafirs shakes their belief in the divinity of their mission, forcing them to lie low for a long time. The defeat of Muslim army in the Battle of Tours in 732AD so demoralised them that they never again attacked Europe from the South. The defeat of Muslims in the first attack on Constantinople in 674-678 AD so demoralised them that they did not return to attack it again for the next 700 years, until 1453AD.
And the defeat of Muslims at the gates of Vienna in 1683AD so broke them that they did not return to invade Europe until the second half of twentieth century, accelerating the invasion only in the second decade of the twenty first century.
The low-level, random, but constant violence of Muslims in Europe that rages non-stop nowadays must be seen in this light. The violence for the Muslims is divine, and the increased submission of kafirs to sharia after every act of Muslim violence is just confirmation of the divinity of the violence.
Low-level, random, but unceasing violence needs one very vital enabling circumstance: the Muslims need to be living in kafir villages, towns, cities, countries. What Mrs Merkel and all the Western leaders, current and of the last fifty years, have wrought is that they have imported hordes of Muslims into Western society, making the Muslim-on-kafir violence possible. Militarily, the kafirs are now overwhelmingly strong, making an attack on kafirs by a regular Muslim army suicidally difficult. So the Muslim world changed tactics, and the idiotic, dumb, and stupid Western ruling elite happily provided the means to make the tactic possible. The tactic adopted by Muslims now is the low level, random, but unceasing violence.
It is impossible to comprehend how the West could ignore its own scholars, even statesmen like Churchill and the American founding fathers, about the real character of Islam and its followers, and could allow mass immigration of Muslims into its societies.
Islam is a militia of Muhammad. Every Muslim is a soldier. He may not be violent right now, but he has same potential for violence right now as the Muslima knifing some policeman right now in some European city.
How could the Western leaders ask their own disarmed citizens to live with a militia that has weapons like murder by any means, rape, looting, and mob violence in its arsenal?
No army can be effective against a militia of the size of Muslim population in Europe; that, too when the leaders ruling Europe refuse to deploy it, even refuse the need to deploy it, even deny the war itself, even deny that there is any militia. No police can keep the peace when faced with such a ruthless militia of such enormous size, in which every citizen, male or female, is a peaceful citizen and a potential killer at the same time, with no means to tell what he is at any given moment.
Add to this the fact discussed in the beginning of the article: that every act of violence by a Muslim brings to every Muslim mind not revulsion but the joy of belonging to a group on a divine mission. And it is evident that the things can only get worse.
Kafirs are doomed, if the script is not broken immediately. The size of Muslim militia in comparison with the kafir population will only increase, if not by immigration, then by higher birth rates. Muslim violence will thus only increase. More Muslim violence will only reinforce Muslim belief, prompting more Muslim violence. Muslim violence thus will create ever more Muslim violence.
As given in the examples above, Muslim defeat demoralises Muslims like nothing else. But an invading army can be defeated. How do we defeat an invading militia, without turning every street into a battle zone, without treating every Muslim as a soldier at war?
The Leftists ruling the West don’t know what they have wrought. They have put before kafirs only two choices, both equally ugly and horrendous: either be exterminated, or go after every Muslim, and drive the Muslims out of kafir societies, to the last person. Complete physical separation.
We may debate till the end of time. But these are the only two choices available to us kafirs of the world. The more we delay the action, the uglier will be the end: our end on this planet, or the end of the Muslim presence in our countries.
