  1. The first Jew hater was Satan. Islam is undeniably Satanic. How anyone can read the Koran and not see the great evil in it, escapes my understanding. Now that the West is virtually hollowed out by secularism and the other poisons of our age, Islam fills the void. I can see that Islam will be the glue that enables this prophecy to be fulfilled:
    “And it hath come to pass, in that day, I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone to all the peoples, All loading it are completely pressed down, And gathered against it have been all nations of the earth.”

    • This is the result of what began 150 (1867) years ago when Higher Criticism challenged the content of the Bible and asked “Did God really say that?”

      Then it was 100 (1917, Thomas Dewey et al) years ago when the Progressives asked, “Did God really mean that?”

      Then it was 50 (1967 and I will never forget what freshmen in a Catholic High School spouted when the teacher brought up the 6th commandment) years ago, during the ‘summer of love’ when it was asked, “Do all those rules apply to me?”

      The result is a hollowed out shell of what was Christianity in the West. To wit, those of us who have remained faithful to the Word of God and its teachings are hated by our ‘brethren’ and called out as bigots, homophobes etc. because we do not ‘run in the way of Cain’ as they do.

      Nature abhors a vacuum, and this one Islam has obligingly filled.

        • We should all be thankful that Madrid kept drag queens out of the Epiphany parade for one more year….

          …but god forbid anyone suggest the LGBTs are recruiting, nope, that never happens, only a homophobe would suggest such…

  2. “A Declaration of Peaceful Intent”.
    A simple declaration for muslims to sign to be against violent verses and so against radicalization in this age.

    Would be very interesting if others could evaluate if this can be legally valid?, does it need to be improved?, and would it be useful in our Courts and law?

    Supporting legal points by Harry Richardson, which could be very useful in our western courts.
    “Harry Richardson explains The Declaration of Peaceful Intent as a Stat Dec.”
    Its legality and effect.

    • None of the above will sign a
      “A Declaration of Peaceful Intent”.
      And we know their intent !

      Imams, muslim immigrants, refugees, will they sign the “Intent”
      If they prove to be unwilling to sign, then is it because the believe in the intent of those verses, meaning they also believe they are the most important abrogating verses.

      Could this be done by a guest or host on a tv show, to another ‘believing’ guest?
      Many of the public will see all the prevarication !
      What will many of the public (non believers) figure is happening ?

      Afterall the ones that present this declaration non aggressively, will “give enough rope for a prevaricating muslim to hang himself.” and yet can easily show other religions will have no problem to disallow any violence in their religous books.

    • This is a very, very good Declaration!
      Questions: how much should be witnesses?
      Should they be armed? What kind of weapons?
      Is it necessary to first nuke the Mecca for this?

    • If a mosque was to be built in your area, surely it would be fair, publically or in a court of law to ask that the muslim leaders in the community sign a “A Declaration of Peaceful Intent”.
      Even better still to get many individuals of that ‘masjid’ to sign.

      If they sign and then in any way renege, then it is their personal creditabilty, proving that a muslim’s word is worth nothing, and that they follow true islam.

      If they will not sign, then it proves that islam is islam, and there is no moderate islam. That will then be weighed up in the granting of “permissiom to build”?

      • Our police state has not yet decided on the direction. Sometimes they withdraw a previously issued permit for the construction of mosques.
        At the same time, any criticism of Islam is mercilessly suppressed in the press. The looted warehouse is set on fire, as is the plundered country. I think they will set fire to an Islamic factor.
        My great-grandfather fought with Basmachi in Central Asia and they cut off his head in 1923. I’m afraid that the same fate can happen to me 100 years later, but already in central Russia.

      • “A Declaration of Peaceful Intent”, can be seen as a reasonable proposition.
        It may not be whether a muslim signs or even abides or does not sign.

        I was thinking that it is to give an avenue in black and white, like an affidavit, for Western Courts, to be able to use that as a means to tighten up, to get through the rubbish that is thrown up by human rights etc..
        That is that proscutors, or even just the public can make lawful claims in court, to simply show a breach of intent.

        It may also be another angle to get through to the public, just what islam is about, in that there are violent verses. If muslims sign, then it acknowledges that there are evil and violent verses.
        Lets see if muslims cause problems, then it can be publically used, that the signatures, on record of those muslims oppose those koranic violent verses.

        It may also push another division in islam, like al quaida attacking hamas, for not being true muslims. 🙂

        We need as many tools, angles, and ways, to oppose islam, to wise up our public , to even wise up muslims, just what is in the koran.

        Then it is their decision, and I hope that it makes it a more difficult for judges to misunderstand, misinterpret, taqiyya, mentality, fudged by defence systems, just what is in the koran, and what a muslim follows.

        Thanks ECAW as “compels” or “intructs” muslims to violence. A legal person may better determine what is the best, workability in terms of law.

        “Harry Richardson explains The Declaration of Peaceful Intent as a Stat Dec.”
        Its legality and effect.

      • First and foremost, why were they even allowed to put up their good for nothing mosques in the West?
        Secondly, even if they do stay “peaceful”, their intention of putting up mosques in infidel land, besides dominating it with foul Islamic agenda, is for their Muslim descendants to take over and claim that any land that has their mosques in it belong to them! They, in their insane quest to push for more mosques, do have an ulterior motives in making us nonbelievers homeless.

    • What good is a pledge when Islam promotes lies and deceit as acceptable to accomplish its end goals…. the ends justify the means?

  3. Only greasy islamophobes (Robert Spencer’s term) could spread this kind of misinformation about the great Abrahamic religion: we educated people know from our previous presidents, CNN and CAIR that Islam means peace.

    Did I express properly the Zeitgeist of 21st century with respect to Islam?

  4. Let me bring a bit of complexity to the discussion.

    The small religious Jewish community in Iran is not only tolerated, but is protected. Physically, they are safer than Jews in many West European countries because the Iranian regime perfectly understands the jihad mindset and does not tolerate it internally. I don’t know how the protests will affect the Jewish community in Iran, but it probably wouldn’t be beneficial for them to be identified politically with the regime,

    During the Dark Ages, up to the time of the Crusades, Islam was in some ways more tolerant of science and technology than Christian countries. This stemmed from the dependence of the Catholic Church on indulgences and prayers as cures. The church actually saw scientific medicine as a rival for offerings of money and other items of value.
    Law of Civilization and Decay

    Does this make Islam less dangerous? No. It makes Islam more dangerous. If Islamists were simply the crazy ISIS fighters, they might be vicious, but quite containable. The real Islamic threat is the educated, lavishly-funded subversives worming their ways into our educational, political and community structures.

  5. ‘Yusuf al Qaradawi, Egypt, Adviser to Muslim Brotherhood’

    To get an idea of the betrayal or unbelievable naivety at the heart of the British establishment consider this:

    “the British government paid for Yusuf al-Qaradawi to attend a conference in Turkey to discuss the future of European Islam”.

    Martin Bright’s extremely important pamphlet exposes “Whitehall’s love affair with radical Islam”.

    Whether naivety or something more sinister the end result is much the same, elements of the British establishment nurture Islamofascists.

    Similar things have happened within the US State Dept.

    The former UK ambassador to Egypt, Sir Derek Plumbly, was one of the few to speak out, saying appeasement will not moderate the Muslim Brotherhood but his voice has gone unheeded.

    Bright’s pamphlet was published 12 years ago, in the last few we have seen Christian Bishops from Syria refused visas to enter the UK, while advice was issued to presume active Muslim Brotherhood members would be eligible for asylum, so if anything the situation has worsened.

    It’s bitterly ironic the Muslim Brotherhood’s stated agenda of infiltrating Western institutions to bring them down from within, is almost irrelevant, when they have been invited in and even funded by the same institutions.

    • I recall the photos at the time of Morsi meeting with Catherine “Europe and the Arab world share a common history and a common destiny” Ashton.
      Morsi looked like the wolf that had the cream, if you can excuse the mixed metaphor.
