Insh’allah: Things that we will see very concretely in our future
[Photo description: Not just dog owners and homosexuals will be surprised, but women too will have to get used to changes]
Everyone speaks of Islamization. There is no daily news in which sooner or later Islam will not be mentioned. You think that is the high point of it all? Think again. Here you will read what will very concretely arrive in the future: From your dog to your wine reserves, all the way to your gay neighbor!
A guest entry by Barbara Köster
One word for you, Dear readers, in case that you don’t see a larger problem about Islam. I want to try and show you, which possibilities are becoming reality and what you are supporting if you support those that accept Islamization and even purposefully bring it here. You will have to decide if this is how you want to live.
To all house and apartment owners and renters:
You own your property unrightfully. Rightfully it belongs to Muslims. This also goes for all the things you own which you have looked at as your own property until now. For the practical transference of your alleged property to the true owners, time is merely not quite ripe yet.
To all single women:
You should get married as fast as possible, or you will have to move in with your parents, uncles or siblings. A woman living alone is a prostitute. Landlords are told not to let such women rent any apartments. Mixed communities of men and women that aren’t related to each other are also not possible in Islamic culture. Here, as well, sodomy is presumed.
To all single males:
You will also want to marry as quickly as possible. Unmarried men are not supposed to be visible in Islamic society. Marriage is a quasi-religious duty.
To all homosexuals:
You should know. For you, the death penalty is in store.
To all married people:
Marriage according to Islamic law is only between a man and a woman, wherein a man may have up to four wives. The principle of Islamic marriage is usufruct. The man acquires the right to use the sexual organs of his wife (wives). The concept of marital rape does therefore not exist. For the husbands only the picture of the prophet Mohammed stands: they represent the prophet to their wives. This is all about the power of order. For the wife, the example of Mohammed is not applicable, but the example of his wives is. It is about submission and obedience. The man-wife relationship is about super- and subordination. Family relations comes before marital relations. In Islam, the word family does not pertain just to the small, isolated nuclear family, which is seen as Western decadence, but the large extended family. While the family as a social entity is untouchable in Islam, the couple’s relationship in Islamic marriage is always vulnerable through the easiness with which men can enforce a divorce, through the use of masked prostitution such as the “temporary marriage”, or through the permission to take concubines.
To all fathers:
Childhood in Islamic culture is not valued. Children do not have rights; they are part of the general property. To set their own well-being behind one’s own, even to play with a child on a regular basis, garners you just as little respect as there is towards the child. Respect is given only to the father, and you have to work for it. You can command your children at your own discretion; the child has to follow you blindly, similar to the way it has to listen blindly to god. Children have to listen to all their elders and stronger ones. Even a grown man remains his father’s son and can only gain independent authority through his dominion over women and children.
To all mothers:
Child-rearing is the duty of the family and therefore yours as a woman and mother. But you will still have only a partial right to your children. In the case of divorce, your ex-husband may allow a son until the age of seven, and a daughter until puberty, to remain in your care, and afterwards they will live with him. The father is always the only legal representative. Organizations for the relief of families — such day care and kindergarten — are not necessary. They are even harmful, as they disturb the family network. Family is a norm that has to be fulfilled, and not just a word that describes familial relationships.
To all who live with care-dependent relatives:
The support of dependants falls into the responsibility of the family as well. An Islamic community generally doesn’t see itself responsible to take over family duties. It would be entirely conceivable, however, that welfare organizations, which until now were involved in elder-care and nursing homes, would be transferred over to Islamic charity foundations who then would exercise welfare and poverty relief according to their own ideas.
To all girls and women who love to ride bicycles:
Watch the movie The Girl Wadjda!
To all dog owners and those who wish to have a dog:
Dogs are unclean and therefore are not allowed to be kept indoors. Black dogs are to be killed.
To all vintners, beer-brewers, distillers and those who appreciate a well-rounded drink:
Alcohol is forbidden. The ban encompasses the manufacturing, sale and consumption of alcohol. Wineries, breweries, distilleries, wine-and-alcohol shops may receive an imminent visit from a Kalashnikov that will destroy inventory and ruin the owner. That’s how it’s done in Islamic countries. The consumption of wine is punished with a flurry of blows. In Iran it’s three strikes and you’re out, you can be executed on the third known instance of alcohol consumption. The destruction of entire cultivated landscapes on the Rhine and Mosel, and in the Pfalz, in Baden and in Franken — to name only a few of Germany’s largest winery areas — will only be a question of time. Tillage will become wild; terrace sites and cultivated plains will become suitable for the building of more settlements.
To all pig-breeders and those who have a love for ham and all things pork-related:
In Islamic food culture there is no Parma or San Daniele ham, no Serrano, Aragon and Pata Negra, no Westphalian, Black Forest, Tirol ham and bacon, no Lardo, bacon or any other kind of bacon-like product, no lard, no spare ribs or pork hock, no schnitzel, no salami or any other pork sausages. These foods are unclean. And nothing will ever change that attitude. Your business will have a bleak future.
To all vegans and vegetarians:
You way of life is not looked upon kindly in Islamic culture. The prophet said: Whoever doesn’t eat meat for 40 days, his character is wicked.” The number “40” is not to be taken verbatim, it merely stands for a longer period of time, but not for a very long time, otherwise it would say “40 years”.
To all lottery players and other players and gamblers and such organizations:
Gambling is forbidden.
To all employees of insurance companies:
Insurance is counted as gambling, and is therefore forbidden.
To all bank employees:
You will be further educated in Islamic banking.
To all female doctors and nurses:
You are allowed to only treat girls and women. Women are people that look like women and not those who feel like women.
To all male doctors and nurses:
You are allowed to only care for boys and men. The deciding factor here, too, is appearance.
To all hairdressers and massage therapists and physiotherapists:
You are allowed to only treat or attend to members of your own sex.
To all phychotherapists:
Your profession is considered fairly exotic in Islamic culture. Psychoanalysis wasn’t invented and developed by Muslims. Islam doesn’t think much of introspection; instead it looks for the external enemy. Let’s see if you’ll be able to make a living among people with this attitude.
To all church employees:
It is expected of you to behave even less conspicuously than before.
To all monks and nuns:
Your position is forbidden in Islam. Monasteries are not worth being protected. The accumulated wealth, including all church real estate, would definitely be very welcome in an Islamic charity foundation.
To all female judges:
In Islam women are not allowed to practice law. You will be let go.
To all judges:
The current constitution will be under further pressure. Rights and justice are essential fields in Islam that it will want to occupy. The goal — Shariah and an Islamic legal system, first only for Muslims but later for all — is something that’s never far from focus.
To all teachers, students, and those studying:
There will be a strict separation of the sexes enforced during teaching events. The curricula will be Islamized. The curriculum of the Islamic State, for example, looks like this: Memorization of the Koran, reading, writing, basic math. For boys a militaristic education is added. For admission to higher studies (college, universities) it is mandatory to have committed the Koran to memory.
To all curators and visitors to art museums:
There won’t be so many exhibitions to see anymore. Statues are forbidden. Pictures of people as well.
To all gallery owners and art dealers:
Maybe a transfer over to Islamic art will help.
To all musicians, singers, concert goers and music dealers:
Composers such as Bach, Händel, Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart, Mahler, Schönberg are unknown to Islamic culture. Opera and symphonies, instruments such as the organ and the piano, also do not belong to the Islamic culture. It’s seen as righteous to destroy musical instruments. The female singing voice endangers morale. Music and singing are only tolerated as long as they don’t disturb the senses. The highest art form in Islam is the recitation of the Koran. it virtually is the “music” of Islam.
To all dancers and those who love to see dance:
Ballet is not Islamic. Dance is forbidden. It’s clear when one looks at the ban on mixed genders in public spaces and the ban on stimulating the senses through music and movement (dance). There will be no more opera balls; they’ll be a thing of the past.
To all athletes and sports fans:
Sport is pagan. Olympic games are idolatry. This attitude was — for instance — also held by the church father Tertullian, which again is an example of Christian life under Islam. The Olympic games were indeed held in honor of antique gods.
To all poets, writers, dramatists and readers:
The lyric is held in high esteem in Islamic culture, but only in Islamic language. The novel is, despite the Egyptian recipient of the literary nobel price Nagîb Mahfûz, still foreign to Islamic culture and is rejected by many religious authorities because novels create fictional worlds that divert attention from Allah. Science fiction is especially seen as presumptive and blasphemous, because only Allah knows the future. Instead of writing novels and reading them, it is suggested that one stay busy with reading the Koran.
To all fashion designers:
Fashion for women in the typical western style will only be worn in a controlled family environment or in a purely female company. You should therefore cancel your drafts and offers. Men’s wear, too, will change. Ties will disappear (especially because of their crucifix-like outline), and especially those made from silk, because silk is haram for men.
To all perfume makers:
Alcohol is forbidden as a basis for perfume. You should start to learn how to manufacture perfumes based on oil.
In conclusion, to all men:
The decadence of lacking the will to power over women has come to an end.
And to all women:
Because an emancipated woman goes to hell, it is therefore the duty of the community to save you from emancipation. True emancipation is modesty; modesty is freedom. Also prohibitions and patronization are true emancipators. Imprisonment is granted for protection. Disobedient women are not women.
I thank you for your attention!
The author just recently published a book titled: The misunderstood Koran: Why Islam has to be reformed.
Vera Lensfeld wrote about the book in “Achse des Guten”:
“Since Merkel’s opening of the borders over one million Muslims have entered Germany. This number grows daily. By the time I have finished writing this text, multiple hundreds of Muslims will have arrived here. In the meantime “Integration” is praised to us as the cure-all, the magic bullet for the continuously increasing problems with unregulated migration. Green politicians such as Caudia Roth even want to throw integration into turbo mode. Frau Göring-Eckardt claims that refugee homes are operating “under our rules of living together”. Both, of course, have no clue what they’re talking about. In our refugee homes Christians and women are shamelessly oppressed and bullied. Whoever wants to know what’s in store for us should maybe try to familiarize themselves with the situations in refugee homes. Concerning the illusion of integration for millions of Muslims, all responsible politicians, journalists, ‘Welcome’-culturalists and tutti quanti (all their ilk) should familiarize themselves with the Koran and Islam. I can recommend a great book, written by Barbara Köster: The misunderstood Koran. Why Islam needs to be reformed.”
