The Negligence of Western Leaders

Michael Copeland’s latest essay concerns the horrendous ignorance of Western leaders on the issue of Islam.

The Negligence of Western Leaders

by Michael Copeland

Western leaders have uttered a catalogue of statements about Islam, many of them with a traceable connection to the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • Islam is peace. — George W. Bush
  • Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism. — Hillary Clinton
  • Authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence. — Pope Francis
  • The Koran is a book of peace. — Mr. Justice Haddon-Cave
  • At the root of the crisis lies a radicalized and politicized view of Islam. An ideology that distorts and warps Islam’s true message. — Tony Blair
  • This is not our war against Islam. This is a war fought by extremists who pervert the true faith of Islam. — Tony Blair
  • There is NOTHING in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act. — David Cameron
  • …it is a poisonous ideology of Islamist extremism that is condemned by all faiths and by all faith leaders. — David Cameron
  • It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam. — Theresa May
  • There are LOTS of churches in Saudi Arabia! — Leader of Worcester City Council

Every one of these statements is wrong, wrong, wrong. Alas, many of them, repeatedly publicised, have become widely known and uncritically accepted.

George W. Bush was duped by the Muslim Brotherhood front group, CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. They had craftily invited him to a mosque to feed him the false narrative that “Islam is peace”. This untrue assertion, obligingly read to the camera from a script by Bush in his best person-to-person-sincerity mode, was widely parroted by other leaders for years afterwards — complete with reverential hushed tones.

It was, however, a deception all along. “Using deception to mask intended goals” is one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategies, as set out in their secret Explanatory Memorandum, captured in a police raid a few years later. Islam authorises deception in the cause of Islam: it has the Arabic name taqiyya. The “Islam is peace” lie was a masterpiece of strategic propaganda. It has run and run.

Hillary Clinton was closely advised by Huma Abedin, herself and her parents linked with Muslim Brotherhood operatives.

The utterances by Blair, Cameron and May (not one of whom is trained in Islam) very probably express the deliberate misinformation supplied by their “advisor”, smooth-talking serial liar Tariq Ramadan, grandson and devotee of Muslim Brotherhood co-founder, Hassan al Banna. This same Tariq “Us versus Them” Ramadan said to an audience of Muslims:

“Tell the infidels in public we respect your laws and your constitutions, which we Muslims believe that these are as worthless as the paper they are written on.”

Allow Lt. Col. Allen West to give the truth to Blair, Cameron and May:

“This is not a perversion. They are doing EXACTLY what this book says.”

The Pope is the Pope Without Hope, promulgating his fantasy version of Islam, a subject in which he has no training.

English judges and lawyers are chiefly remarkable for their wrong statements about Islam, the product of erroneous assumptions and lack of research into this subject, on which they, too, have received no training.

The honest gaffe that “There are LOTS of churches in Saudi Arabia” (where no churches are permitted), while made by a City Council Leader, is probably shared by millions of Westerners, who are not sufficiently interested in religion to research it. The public have a Learning Curve to climb.

That the public should have much to learn is one thing. For politicians, leaders and judges to propagate these untrue statements is much more serious: it is negligence.

  1. All those leaders never believed their own words. There only reason was to keep the peace and prevent civil war at all cost. Not realizing this war will come eventually.

    • When I look at these so called leaders I remember two movies and one book.

      1) The Veteran:
      Gerry Langdon: The organizing principle of any society is for war. The basic authority of the modern state over its people resides in its war powers. Today it’s oil, tomorrow, water. It’s what we like to call the GOD business: Guns, Oil, and Drugs. But there is a problem. Our way of life, its over. It’s unsustainable and in rapid decline. That’s why we implement demand destruction. We continue to make money as the world burns. But for this to work the people have to remain ignorant of the problem until it’s too late. That’s why we have triggers in place: 9/11, 7/7, WMDs. A population in a permanent state of fear does not ask questions. Our desire for war becomes *its* desire for war. A willing sacrifice. You see, fear is justification, fear is control, fear is money. You’re a brilliant soldier and I could still use someone like you.

      2) Sin City:
      Senator Roark: Power don’t come from a badge or a gun. Power comes from lying. Lying big, and gettin’ the whole damn world to play along with you. Once you got everybody agreeing with what they know in their hearts ain’t true, you’ve got ’em by the balls.

      3) World War Z:
      (Unfortunately I cannot find the Quote.) There a former secretary of the US Government tells the Reporter that you do not rule to solve problems but to make your constituents happy, collect a paycheck and stay in power to milk the Government. But at the end of the interview it is made clear that the former high ranking member of the former Government is now collecting human and animal refuse for use in biogenerators (refuse produces methane and that can be burned).

      Sorry if I am a cynic.

  2. It never occurs to Copeland year in, year out that US and US vassal politicians are not negligent “for lack of training” about Islam at all. Why does he take statements by them at face value?

    Because on the one hand, the religion of the closest importable people into the EU – in the face of falling White replacement births – to boost gross GDP (bond coupons, interest income, new building starts, mortgage and hire purchase debt, retail sales) happens to be Islam.

    On the other, radical Islam is most useful to weaken Russia and China in the eternal Great Game of geopolitics, as they have subvertible Muslim and/or ethnic minorities: Uighurs, Baluch, etc.

    As a senior Iranian military man said, the USA does not want to defeat IS, it just wants to keep it under control. Gen. Flynn, ex-head of DIA said to Al Jazeera in 2015 that Obama had wilfully created IS as an anti-Assad force.

    Who knows if Obama was reading off an Israeli script co-written at AIPAC.

    • But what does Islam do to Europe?
      You write: ” radical Islam is most useful to weaken Russia and China in the eternal Great Game of geopolitics, as they have subvertible Muslim and/or ethnic minorities: Uighurs, Baluch, etc. ”

      The Suburbs of Paris, the banlieus are 99% muslim. The entire southeast of France is under the control of the muslim gangs who fight each other with AK-47. And the Police does not dare to interfere.

      Bruxelles-Molenbeek is a muslim citypart where one of the assassins of the Bataclan could hide for what? 6 months and nobody reported him because he did his religious duty and killed infidels.

      The Ruhr area, the former industrial heart of Germany and various parts of Berlin and Bremen are under control of muslims.

      We are vulnerable and if the situation between Greece and Turkey heats up Erdogan could use These 5th columns to send Europe into a civil war.

  3. Re: “That the public should have much to learn is one thing. For politicians, leaders and judges to propagate these untrue statements is much more serious: it is negligence.”

    Negligence is far-too-lenient a term. These leaders are guilty of criminal misconduct, perhaps even treason. Certainly the ones who knew the real face of Islam, but hid it willingly anyway. If you are going to term it “negligence,” then at least please apend the word “criminal” to it as a prefix. There is a very big difference between being incompetent, naive or remiss on one hand, and on the other, committing a deliberate criminal act against one’s own people. Oh, which reminds me of another useful word for these turncoats and fifth-columnists in our midst – Quisling.

    For those unfamiliar with the term, Norwegian native Vidkun Quisling collaborated with the Nazi occupiers of Norway during the Second World War, to such an extent that his perfidy became part of the lexicon of treason. One who willingly betrays his own nation and people as did the Norwegian traitor, are termed “Quislings.” After a brief postwar trial whose outcome found him guilty of numerous charges, including high treason and murder, Quisling was executed by firing squad.

    Lest the gentle reader think that this punishment is too lenient for those who have let our ancient Islamic enemy inside the gates of our civilization, bear in mind that the blood of every common European man, woman or child who falls to an act of jihad committed by a Muslim – is on the hands of the modern-day collaborators – Merkel, May, Macron, Juncker, and so many more.

    • This is the reason why these leftist Jews end up in camps, gulags and slaughtered in mass numbers. The problem is, it takes the rest of the Jews with them that have nothing to do with Marxism.. That is why they have Israel, so they don’t get put in camps and gulags.

  4. Following the logic by the dear leaders cited above, it stands to reason, that alcohol has absolutely nothing to do with alcoholism…

  5. It is so interesting that most muslim scholars and “islamophobes” agree on islam’s true message, but Western leaders that know close to nothing about islam have a different opinion.

    Just ask Baghdadi, the austere muslim scholar.

  6. ‘Emirates Minister: “The day will come when we will see more Muslim extremists and terrorists in the EU given the passivity and political correctness of its leaders, who believe they understand the Middle East and Islam better than we do. It is pure ignorance. “ Exactly why none of the oil-rich Arab Gulf States will take in any Muslims pretending to be refugees.’

  7. All those “Leaders” in the West have most likely NEVER, EVER read the Quran or any other Islamic “Scriptures” like the Hadith and others.

    Let’s ask a simple question;
    Would you go to a Baker to have your Appendix removed?
    NO?
    I wouldn’t have thought so.

    Then how can people believe anything those political Con Artists are saying?
    And researching Islamic Scripture is much easier than a Appendix Operation any day.
