Jihad Watch Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald reflects on recent Muslim complaints that they are unfairly suspected and discriminated against: “We Muslims living in America are getting sick of this crap.”
There is no Muslim contribution to the American polity, not to the entire edifice of the American political system. The Shari’a flatly contradicts, in every way, the American Constitution. The economic views encouraged by Islam — a combination of relying on booty from the conquered Unbelievers (attacked purely for that booty, beginning with the inoffensive Jewish farmers of the Khaybar Oasis), and on jizyah (or disguised “jizyah” as in the Bumiputra system in Malaysia, or the way in which non-oil Muslim states such as Egypt have managed to extract from the endlessly naive Western world tens of billions of dollars in Infidel aid, repaid not with gratitude but with ratcheting up the level of hate), and with a heavy dose of inshallah-fatalism, is completely the opposite of American notions of self-reliance, individual effort and achievement.
In social matters, Islam is as absurdly reactionary — “honor” killings, the oppression of women, the Total Reliance on the Authority of Books Concocted between the 7th and 9th centuries (Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira) possibly in Arabia, possibly to its north, in present-day Iraq, Syria, or Jordan. which, as an ideal to be encouraged, even if it is hardly the whole story — as it is possible to be. That some people who claim to be Muslims still function in the modern world is a tribute only to their ability to ignore much of Islam.
In intellectual matters, no sculpture, no painting of living creatures save for Mughal miniatures, that were despite, not because, of Islam, no music (hence the attacks in Algeria on those singers of Rai), no real science (weapons technology — ah, that’s a different thing).
And yet this primitive system, simply by dint of the utter foolishness, sentimentality, mental laziness, and above all ingratitude of the inhabitants of the Western world for what they have inherited as a civilizational legacy, could by force of numbers — sheer overbreeding — and Da”wa appeals to the psychically and economically marginal (always ready to try on anything that may Explain The Universe and Get Back at The System) — conceivably prevail.
Look at how, in the last two days, all sorts of newspapers have fallen all over themselves with pictures of Muslims sweetly celebrated the Eid al-Adha — in North Dakota, for god’s sake, not to mention elsewhere. The word seems to have gone out to the American press: Make Islam Look Good.
And since what is Bad about Islam are the actual tenets, and those, assimilated into the brain, cannot be shown in pictures — though the murderous results of Islamic beliefs, and the results, too, of Islamic practices over 1400 years, can be seen in the reduction of ancient Mesopotamia, and its once-entirely non-Muslim population to what is now an almost entirely Muslim population — like what you see? would you like America or Europe to turn into that, over time? it won’t take 1400 years, but less than a century to throw out all of Western civilization because “we all want the same thing” and “we all share the faith of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar” and…oh good god, fill in the rest of the nonsense yourself, culled from the paper, or some idiotic NPR news program, or something on the Lord Haw Haw broadcasts from the BBC, where the likes of Judy Swallow or Robin Lustig, marionetted from above by the sinister John Simpson (#3 at Bush House), have created a special BBC house blend of anti-Americanism, antisemitism, and therefore, of course, islamophilia, that has by degrees helped to mentally disarm tens of millions of listeners.
No, it is we Infidels who are getting “sick of this crap.”
