Islam Can’t Change and Won’t Change

The following essay by H. Numan was originally published in Dutch at E.J. Bron’s website, and has been translated into English by the author.

Islam can’t change and won’t change

by H. Numan

Most of the time I fully agree with Geert Wilders, but not all the time. In this case I think Wilders has very few options. In nearly every interview he points towards ‘bad’ mohammedans, and rightly so. He always says they have to adapt to our values and cultures. That’s where he goes wrong. It doesn’t happen. They don’t do it, and worse: they will not do it. I’m pretty sure Wilders knows that better than anyone else. But what can he say? Even though he is 100% correct, every judge in Holland or Europe would condemn him. For whatever reason they can think of.

Let’s start with the koran and Mr. Mo himself. All religions reason in circles; the worst offender by far is islam. The koran is the word of god, dictated by the angel Gabriel to Mohammed. Who is also appointed to be the last prophet ever. How do we know that? Mo said so. What’s the proof for that? It is written in the koran. In other words, the koran is proof for the veracity of the koran. Mo’s appointment as last prophet is quite important. Because all subsequent prophets, for example Joseph Smith (Mormonism) or Ron Hubbard (Scientology) are automatically false prophets. It’s written in the koran that God himself didn’t want to work with prophets after Mohammed. Therefore anyone claiming to be a prophet must be false.

The entire religion is set up so it cannot be changed. Normal books are mostly written in chronological order. Not the koran. The surahs are ordered by length. Those verses were revealed to Mo over a period of 23 years. Very often in dreams, when Mo was in bad need of divine backup. A great example are the Satanic verses:

Mo had taken Mecca, which at the time already was the Lourdes of Sandland. Allah existed, but wasn’t the one and only god yet. It was one of the many gods that could be worshiped — for a small fee, of course — there. The Meccanos made a handsome dirham out of this business. Mo’s order to abandon the entire business except for Allah didn’t sit very well with them. They politely asked the prophet to really think long about it, perhaps sleep on it. Give his command the next morning, not right now. Supposing tomorrow his command would stand? Well, not a problem. They would behead the prophet, so he could discuss it in person with the great god himself. Sweet dreams! In the night Gabriel appeared and told Mo that the order was false. Allah hadn’t given the order. It was Satan. Therefore, no worries. Business as usual.

We see this happen lot with Mo: Gabriel coming to the rescue in a dream. Polygamy was common in that area, but usually no more than 3-4 women. When questions were asked why Mo kept a whole herd he told them he was given permission. In a dream. Same story when people wondered if Aisha wasn’t a tad too young to marry: “Allah told me I could”. In a dream? “Of course in a dream! You didn’t think the supreme being would bother to visit his humble prophet in the flesh, do you? Oh, before I forget. Allah also gave permission only to me. You can’t marry toddlers. Only prophets can. And I’m the last one. Sorry about that.”

The ordering of the koran is also a mystery. At least to anyone who is not a mohammedan, that is. The ordering is not chronological, but by length of surahs. That’s not a coincidence. The friendly chapters (surahs) were written when Mo lived in Medina and tried to be friendly. He had to; at the time he didn’t hold absolute power. As Mo was anything but friendly, those are the shortest verses. That changed completely when Mo conquered Mecca. Friendliness went out of the window immediately.

The Non-News From the Netherlands

The two videos below are brief Dutch news reports about the Easter Day bombings in Sri Lanka. Many thanks to C for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

This first video is from early on, when the news was still breaking. According to the correspondent in Sri Lanka, the attacks were the Christians’ fault, who somehow provoked the Buddhists to commit the atrocities:

Later on, when it became obvious that the bombings were carried out by Islamic terrorists, the reporters managed to discuss the news without saying anything at all:

The Sri Lanka Bombers Pledge Fealty to the Caliph of the Islamic State

The mainstream media in the West have been reluctant to mention Islam when discussing the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, which killed at least 359 people at churches and hotels. In fact, they have been loath to refer to religion at all, preferring to identify the victims as “Easter worshippers” rather than “Christians”.

Despite the fact that the incident had nothing to do with Islam or any other religion, a video has surfaced of the conspirators — at least some of whom were suicide bombers — pledging fealty to Caliph Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State.

At the end of the video the terrorists recite “Allahu Akhbar” in unison, which intelligence analysts believe to be an Arabic phrase that means: “We fear unemployment, are concerned about climate change, experience social marginalization, and feel discriminated against.”

Many thanks to Ibn Al-Malek for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Indian TV News Report on the Islamic Terror Attacks in Sri Lanka

English is the common tongue in polyglot India, which means that Indian newspaper and TV reports are often accessible to the rest of the Anglosphere. That’s particularly useful during a major news event in the region, such as yesterday’s terrorist bombings in Sri Lanka.

In this case it’s even more useful, since unlike major media outlets in Europe and North America, this Indian TV station is not at all politically correct. The clip below was part of the early live coverage of the bombings, before the full scope of the attacks was known, and the reported number of casualties was not yet over a hundred. Yet the reporters give the names of two of the suspected suicide bombers (Mohammed Coefficient: 50%) and discuss a possible affiliation with the Islamic State.

And this station is a CNN affiliate — didn’t they get the memo??

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

Carnage in Sri Lanka and Panic in Munich

Just before I went to church this morning I saw the news reports about the Islamic terror attacks in Sri Lanka. I didn’t have time to put together a post, but I recommend the reports at Vlad Tepes, which include dozens of videos (although at least two of them have been taken down by YouTube since Vlad posted them).

There were eight separate bombing attacks, four of them against churches celebrating Easter Mass. 207 people were reportedly killed, and at least 450 others wounded. The perpetrators are allegedly members of a new Islamic terrorist organization. Seven people have been arrested so far, but some of the explosions were caused by suicide bombers who will never be brought to justice on this side of the veil.

Alternatively, you can read about what happened in The Guardian or The Washington Post.

Vlad also has a report on an unrelated attack on a Croatian church in Munich. A bearded culture-enricher entered the Easter service, shouted “Allahu Akhbar”, and detonated several powerful fireworks. The congregation fled in panic, and 24 people were injured in the melee.

Multiculturalism Claims Another Victim

Multiculturalism claims another victim

by H. Numan

Something big in the news in Thailand and Germany: a female German tourist was brutally raped and murdered on the lovely island of Koh Chang in Thailand. The victim was Mariam Beelte, 27. Her body was discovered under a pile of stone. Her rapist and murderer was a Thai man, Ronnakorn Romruen, 24. He has admitted his crime. He was strongly under the influence of methamphetamine, which has been confirmed by tests. In other words: he was high as a kite. He’s currently under arrest and may very well face the death penalty. The latter is not reported in Germany.

Yesterday I spoke with a German friend who asked me if Thailand has become more dangerous over the last five years. Because that is being reported by the Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda the German media.

No, it hasn’t. Not noticeably so. Much unlike Western Europe, which is fast going doing the drain. I haven’t been there for a long time — and very much hope to not be there for a long time to come. Far too dangerous, far too dirty and generally very unsafe. Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome or Madrid. It doesn’t matter. Those cities are highly unsafe now. However, multiculturalism is the cure for all problems, so that cannot be it. Therefore, Thailand must have become much more unsafe. And that is widely reported.

Before I moved to Thailand 25 years ago I read anything I could find about it. So I would understand the country I was moving to. Travel guides, books written by people living there, history books, anything. Most of them warned travelers to be very careful. Thailand, they said, was a very safe country provided you stay on the beaten track. Leave that well-trodden path, and you’re on your own. Women in particular were cautioned never to travel alone, and especially not in remote areas.

Nothing to do with Thai men in particular, mind you. All travel guides included this caution. A woman traveling alone at night on a deserted beach wasn’t asking for trouble, but screaming for it. Thailand, Spain, Portugal, Africa, even boring old Germany and Holland — anywhere. A woman alone shouldn’t travel off the beaten path. That’s simply asking for trouble.

And then came multiculturalism. Together with its evil sister extreme feminism. Women can do anything they want. Provided it pays well, and the top positions only. Otherwise we aren’t really interested. Only white men do nasty things. They are the source of all evil — down with the male patriarchy! All cultures are equal, people are generally good, friendly and nice. The world is your unicorn.

Those warnings disappeared from the guides. Because those ‘liberated’ women felt restrained by it. They couldn’t do what they wanted — which probably is getting shag… silly. Traditional values are so old fashioned. If a woman wants a tattoo, she expresses her individuality! Forgetting that when everyone gets tattooed is more a kind of a uniform and the very opposite of individuality.

Ladyboys — What You Don’t Know

The following essay by our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan is a somewhat different reprise of a topic he posted on a couple of years ago.

A note from the author on the photo below: “Both people are reporting for the draft, but the monk has a much better chance of having to serve (shows in their faces).”

Ladyboys — what you don’t know

by H. Numan

This is a very popular topic among our extremely progressive f(r)iends: there are no genders. Gender is just a concept. You feel you are a woman? Well, that makes you a woman!

Sheer ranting nonsense, of course. There are only two genders: male and female. Mother nature works with just two genders. At least, in mammals. Plants and many non-mammalian species have a few more options. We humans aren’t plants, even if you feel you are. That makes you completely bonkers, but that’s a different topic.

In Thailand there are a lot of ladyboys, which makes me to a very limited extent a bit of an expert. So let’s look at how it works in Thailand, and by extension in most other nations.

Let’s start off with men who feel they are women: transgenders, as they are known in the West. We have a lot of them in Thailand. It was one of the first things that struck me as totally different when I arrived here. Nobody even blinks an eye.

I happen to live next door to the most prestigious mall in Thailand. The perfume and beauty departments employ lots of those kathoeys. That’s the Thai word for ladyboy. If you visit Thailand, consider visiting Alcazar Cabaret in Pattaya, which is world-famous. Almost as good is Calypso in Bangkok. I really recommend both.

All the girls you see — and they are truly stunning — are men. No women participate in these shows. Don’t worry, nothing naughty happens on stage. It’s not suitable for very young children, but if your kids are over 12? Go for it! They will love it.

I met an older ladyboy who is a famous TV star. We even had two of them working in my company. No big deal here. Some schools build special bathrooms for them. In university they wear (when allowed) girl’s uniforms. Sometimes in high schools too. In Thailand all students wear uniforms, from kindergarten up to and including university. I wonder what our progressive college brats think about that one: wearing a uniform in university. Or getting report points for behavior and properly being dressed. Not something that would go down well in Berkeley, I assume.

I’m actually surprised progressive activists never point out Thailand to show how well a society can function with transgenders. Which shows they don’t know anything about it. If there is one country were transgenders are almost fully accepted, it is Thailand. By far the majority of transgenders are men. There are a few girls who dress and behave like boys (we call them toms or tomboys), but not a lot.

But there is a very dark side to being a ladyboy. Something you almost never hear about. That is the suicide and mortality rate. More than 40% of all ladyboys commit suicide. I’d say from personal experience the suicide rate is far higher than 50%. Nearly all ladyboys I met in the past are long dead. Those who didn’t commit suicide very often died of diseases.

Democracy? A Little Bit, Perhaps

As a follow-up to his earlier post, H. Numan provides more details on the history of the monarchy and democracy in Thailand.

Democracy? A little bit, perhaps.

by H. Numan

In my last article about Thailand someone asked a good question: is Thaksin a communist? To put your mind at ease: no, he isn’t. Far from it. More the exact opposite. Not only that, but communism is strictly forbidden in Thailand. So why then do his adherents wear red? There is a simple reason for it: the monarchists wear yellow, and red nicely contrasts with that. Now, that’s too short for an essay. So I’ll explain how it works in Thailand. It’s a very young democracy, after all. I’ve been here for the last 25 years and not all is what you think it is.

We have to go back a little bit, to 1932 when the absolute monarchy was abolished and ‘democracy’ installed. Who were those revolutionaries then? Mid-rank royals and military officers who felt they had to wait too long for their share of the pie. Until 1932 all important appointees were members of the royal family, or mostly nobles closely related to it. Promotions based on merit were extremely rare in those days. The level below the top felt left out and wanted to do something about it. So they proclaimed a ‘democratic’ revolution.

The king at that time was King Prajadhipok or Rama VII. All Thai kings of the Chakri dynasty take the title Rama with a number. King Bhumibol was Rama IX, the current king is Maha Vajiralongkorn or Rama X. Rama VII was already setting up a more democratic government, but very slowly. Too slow for the revolutionaries. After the revolution the king went to England for medical treatment and once there he told them what they could do with the monarchy. Specifically, to stick it into something I won’t mention here.

Once the Pandora’s box was opened, coups became quite regular. It’s a bit like the old Roman Empire in the year of the four emperors, 68 AD. When people realized emperor was just a job, anyone with enough ambition tried to become one. There have been many coups and coup attempts in Thailand. So many that Wikipedia has a whole section dedicated to it. Almost all of those coups were committed by people who wanted as much of the pie as possible. And most if not all claim to do it for the good of the land and the people, as usual.

Once a coup has been committed one of the first things the (usually) generals did was rewrite the constitution. We’ve had bicameral parliaments, unicameral parliaments, parliaments with limited power, almost unlimited power — anything you can think of, and a lot more. The current constitution is the 24th. Every constitution is a bit like the soap powder commercials: New! Improved! Now with more anti-corruptors! With extra democracy added!

I moved to Thailand in 1994, when democracy seemed to take hold. There had been a coup in 1991; the military installed a hugely unpopular civilian government which was thrown over by a civilian uprising. That’s the famous moment king Bhumibol ordered the military, government and revolutionaries to the palace and told them to stop it. The king had so much authority that the government resigned immediately and a democratic government was installed. Well, it wasn’t democracy finally taking hold, but more a quiet period in between.

Meanwhile, Back in Bangkok

As long-time readers know, H. Numan is not just our Dutch correspondent, he is also our Bangkok correspondent. In the latter capacity, he sends this much-needed update on the latest political goings-on in Thailand.

Meanwhile, back in Bangkok

by H. Numan

I haven’t written about Thailand for a long time. There’s a good reason for that: we had several military coups. Generals generally don’t like to be criticized, and ours are no exception. As both the Baron and I can’t afford legal fees, better be safe than sorry. Also, his late majesty King Bhumibol died. His successor is king Maha Vajiralongkorn, his son. King Bhumibol reigned from 1950 to 2016; that’s 76 years. His reign was the longest ever in Thai history, and one of the longest rulers of all time. The new king is therefore no spring chicken. At 64 he is the oldest ruler of Thailand ever to ascend to the throne. Currently queen Elisabeth II of the United Kingdom holds the title of longest-ruling monarch.

Now, about that criticism generals and kings don’t like: Thailand has the strictest lèse-majesté laws, not on this planet, rather in the entire solar system. Any criticism can — and must — be prosecuted by the authorities. The punishment is 12 years in jail, for each offense. Offenses can be cumulative: someone liked 6 ‘wrong’ pictures of the king on Facebook a couple of years back, and got 6 x 12 = 72 years. Under Thai law the sentence can be reduced by half by the court if the suspect cooperates, which he did. So this chappie only has to serve a mere 36 years for liking something incorrect on Facebook. It’s also an excellent way to get even with people you have a quarrel with: when you submit a charge of lèse-majesté, the police must investigate it by law, even if they know it’s a trumped-up charge.

The generals were quite keen on using the lèse-majesté laws to get opponents off the streets. The last coup happened in 2014, and is about to be ended with ‘democratic’ elections to be held on the 24th of March. Strict censorship is still in place, but a bit relaxed. So I don’t have to worry too much about getting 12 years or more in jail. Let’s update you folks what’s happening in the land of the smileys:

Living in Thailand I am amazed how the Thais can get away with just about anything. We have had a full-blown mohammedan uprising in the three southernmost provinces bordering on Malaysia since 2004. Sometimes the terrorists expand their activities outside those provinces. The two most infamous of those attacks were the one at the Erawan shrine in 2014, and the Mother’s Day bombing on 12 August 2015, almost to the day a year later. Those two were by far the worst terrorist attacks ever in Thailand.

The Mother’s Day bombing was a series of bomb attacks in Bangkok and the southern part of Thailand with, 17 victims. The attack on the Erawan shrine — which is, incidentally, within easy walking distance of my house — was the worst attack ever, with over 20 victims.

Technically the attack on the Erawan shrine wasn’t done by our own home grown mozzies, but by Uighurs. A few weeks before Thailand extradited 200 of them back to China. The Uighurs didn’t like that and took revenge. Uighurs are, by the way, also muslims, but from China.

Those two attacks made international headlines, but the day-to-day violence since 2004? Rarely. Don’t underestimate it. Since 2004 more than 7,500 people have died due to mohammedan violence. That’s more than both intifadas and the Northern Irish civil war combined.

It’s a real mess down south. Teachers and government officials are regularly targeted. So much so that teachers get guns, ammunition, training and severance pay from the government. A full army corps is necessary to keep some semblance of law and order. Without any attention whatsoever from the international media…

The same goes for corruption. The generals who committed the last coup in 2014 said they did it to combat corruption. Now, we had a funny little incident that show how sincere they are. Vice Premier General Prawit Wongsuwan was seen wearing a very expensive watch. Someone discovered he hadn’t declared that watch when he took office. So people started paying attention what he was wearing. It turned out he had a whole collection of very expensive and undeclared watches, about 24 of them. Not to mention undeclared expensive diamond rings as well.

Geert Wilders: Grant Asia Bibi Asylum in the Netherlands!

December 1, 2018

Parliamentary Questions from Geert Wilders, Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) to the Prime Minister of The Netherlands regarding granting asylum to Asia Bibi

1.   Are you willing to grant asylum in The Netherlands to Asia Bibi, the brave Christian girl from Pakistan who is threatened to be killed by radical Muslims?
2.   If yes, can you let your positive decision be known to her, her representatives and the Pakistani government?
3.   If no, why not, and isn’t it a bloody shame that while you allowed hundreds of thousands non-western immigrants and asylum seekers — many of whom Muslim — into the Netherlands and have often granted them asylum (among which are many fortune seekers, terrorists and Salafists), there is no room for a brave Christian girl who did nothing wrong, but fears death for so-called blasphemy against the fake prophet Mumammad?
4.   Shouldn’t you send all those fortune seekers — which you should not have allowed into our country — out of country as soon as possible and grant a true refugee such as Asia Bibi asylum in The Netherlands?
5.   Can you answer these question before Tuesday December 6, 11 am?
 

Another Stampede Through the Balkans

The following article about the new migration wave passing through the Balkans did not appear online, but only in the print edition of Kronen Zeitung (Krone Bunt supplement) on September 30, 2018.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation:

Refugee Wave

The recent arrivals have in part increased more than a tenfold. This time the largest group of migrants comes from Pakistan. ORF Balkans expert Christian Wehrschütz was on site for a local investigation.

Another Stampede Through the Balkans

Both the small town of Velika Kladuša and the town of Bihać [both in Bosnia-Herzegovina] are still hot spots on the Balkan route, as these municipalities lie near the border with Croatia, and about 100 km [63 miles] from Slovenia. On the outskirts of Velika Kladuša there are emergency tents set up on bare earth, and “inhabited” by about 250 people. Meals are provided by the Red Cross, which is funded by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The IOM has sufficient means to set up a winterproof reception center, but lacks a location and governmental authorisation. However, the IOM has rented a hotel to better accommodate families arriving there. The journey continues with the help of smugglers and mobile phone navigation systems, moving on towards Italy and other EU countries.

In general, the burden placed on the states of former Yugoslavia by the new Balkan route from Greece via Albania and Montenegro to Bosnia and Herzegovina remains considerable. For example, Bosnia alone registered around 12,000 migrants in the first seven months of this year, ten times more than the year before.

Visa liberalisation acts as a magnet for illegal migration

The largest group by far comes from Pakistan. According to the border police in Ljubljana, 6,000 illegal border crossing were thwarted by mid-September. This is a significant increase over the same period from the previous year, of only 1,200 illegal border crossings. Slovenia has documented around 1,000 illegal border crossings per month since May of migrants coming from Croatia. All this despite 6,000 border control officers’ being deployed to protect the 1,200 kilometres of external borders of the European Union. One third of the illegal border-crossing migrants in Slovenia are Pakistani. The 400 Iranians who were also caught crossing the border illegally are most likely a consequence of the visa liberalisation agreement that Serbia made with Iran last year.

In general, visa liberalisation is a magnet for illegal migration — not only in Serbia, but also in Bosnia and Herzegovina (via Turkey) and in other countries. The border control officers of the EU border protection agency Frontex are already present at the airport in Belgrade. Frontex is also stationed at the airport in Tirana, in order to make illegal migration from Albania into the EU more difficult. Frontex and Albania will sign a status agreement in early October. As a result, Frontex will be given executive powers in this Balkan state and will no longer be merely observing and advising. Such agreements were also signed with Macedonia and Serbia. Currently Frontex has 124 officers in the Western Balkans deployed at so-called coordination points.

The Balkans is also a focal point of Austrian police cooperation with sixty officials who are working with thermal imaging cameras at various borders. A support team was also present at the Albanian-Greek border during the summer. There, a special vehicle was used that can read mobile phone data to determine the nationality of migrants, routes, and as cash flows to human traffickers. To receive payment for their services, human trafficking organisations use virtual currencies as well as the so-called hawala system. Money is deposited by someone and a code agreed upon. If a trafficked person reaches a certain part of the route, or if a trafficker fulfils part of his task (forging documents, providing transport), the code is transmitted and the money is transferred. Such codes are also sent via mobile phones, which can be detected. Human traffickers also use apps that indicate shipping traffic on the North African coast. The rescue ships of aid organisations have become “part of the business model of smugglers” in a sense, because the “dilapidated dinghies” are deployed when such a ship is nearby.

New Information About the Danforth Shooting in Toronto

Back in July we reported on a mass shooting at a café in the Greektown district of Toronto by an allegedly mentally disturbed young man named Faisal Hussain. Mr. Hussain killed two people and wounded thirteen more before killing himself.

At the time there wasn’t much publicly available information about the gunman except for the usual sanitized boilerplate put out by the authorities and dutifully passed on by the Canadian MSM. It was obvious that information was being suppressed, and we were not being told everything the authorities knew about Faisal Hussain.

However, an official police document has now been made public, albeit in redacted form. In the following video Ezra Levant of Rebel Media analyzes this document in detail:

Stephen Coughlin on the Quranic Concept of War

During last week’s OSCE/ODIHR conference in Warsaw, the Counterjihad Collective organized a side event entitled “Why Does Europe Hate Speech?” The following video from the event shows a talk given by retired Maj. Stephen Coughlin on the Muslim Brotherhood’s long-term plans for jihad — both kinetic and non-kinetic — which are even now bearing fruit, both at the OSCE and elsewhere.

In his talk Maj. Coughlin discusses, among other things, The Quranic Concept of War, a book that was written in 1979 by the serving Brigadier General S. K. Malik when he was chief of staff of the Pakistani army.[1] President Zia ul Haq declared the book to be his country’s military doctrine.[2] The Advocate General in Pakistan, a man named Brohi[3], affirmed that it was law.

So it’s a significant book, and well worth paying attention to.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading this video:

In his book Gen. Malik writes:

So spirited, zealous, complete and thorough should be our preparation for war that we should enter upon the ‘war of muscles’ having already won the ‘war of will’. Only a strategy that aims at striking terror into the hearts of the Enemies from the preparation stage can produce direct results and turn Liddell Hart’s dream into a reality. (p. 58)

He also says, “We do not even start the fighting war until we have already assessed that the war has been won. We have already made the enemy surrender mentally.”

From pages 57 to 58, he includes the four following quotes from the Koran to make his point.[4]

I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. (Qur’an 8: 12)

Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers. (Qur’an 3: 151)

And those of the People of the Book who aided them, Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts, so that some ye slew, and some ye made prisoners [the women and the children]. And he made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which ye had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things. (Qur’an 33: 26-27)

Let not the unbelievers think that they can get the better (of the Godly): they will never frustrate them. Against them make ready your strength of the utmost of your power, including steeds of war to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah any your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. (Qur’an 8:56-60)

Based on the above citations from the Koran, Gen. Malik concludes:[5]

TERROR struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means; it is an end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet and merge. TERROR is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we wish to impose upon him.

Thus his conclusion is that the Quranic concept of war is terror, with four quotes from the Koran to back up his argument. His final sentences at the end of the same chapter are very important:
