Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald discusses Western officialdom’s attitude toward Muslim immigration to the West:
“5 most dangerous words in the English language with regard to Muslim immigration to the West:
–From a posting here
“Maybe”? “Peut-etre, mozhet byt’, forse?” On the basis of a “maybe” the Western world, after all that it has learned so far, and all that it continues to learn, and all that it will be learning, about the nature and history and tenets of Islam, should rely on a “maybe”?
Maybe this herd will not contain an animal with Mad Cow Disease, or “maybe” only there will be only one. “Maybe” only 1 out of every 10 Muslims in the West will actively support terrorism, and “only” 2 or 3 out of ten be passive supporters. “Maybe” only 8 out of 10 will, by their presence, by their politics, by the demands they make, by the weight of their activity, by the practice of their taqiyya-and-tu-quoque, by their affability, geniality, and friendliness that continues so long as Islam itself is not attacked, indirectly support and aid the jihad. And of course, if Islam is perceived as being attacked, then an entirely new being, a wounded and enraged creature, can often be observed, when a moment before one had thought one was talking to a thoroughly westernized, thoroughly assimilated and advanced member of the same society, or the same planet.
No, those peoples who wish not to succumb through demographic conquest and the aggressive pursuit of Da’wa within Infidel lands have begun to familiarize themselves with Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira. After all, these sources cannot continue to have their contents hidden, cannot continue to be presented only in the versions that the apologists wish to have presented, with their steady mountebank’s patter intended to divert attention from and offer in a misleading guise all those passages in Qur’an and stories in the Hadith (in the accepted compilations of al-Bukhari and Muslim) that contain so many unpleasant and often horrifying facts (horrifying to Infidels). Of course, the Sira, the sacralized biography, of Muhammad, al-insan al-kamil, uswa hasana (in the Qur’anic phrase), that Model for All Mankind, offers such horrors in abundance.
No, we have no desire, no wish, to bet our futures on this “maybe.” Especially in light of the behavior of many Muslims already, wherever they may have originated, and however long they may have remained within the Infidel lands where they have somehow been permitted to settle, live, and find jobs, yet not to confront or to jettison Islam itself. Indifference and ignorance have permitted them to aggressively attempt to hide the nature of Islam and to spread this belief-system that is so inimical to free and skeptical thought, as well as to artistic expression — a belief-system that has been so obviously threatening to Western ways, Western laws and customs, Western mores.
“Maybe”? What Infidel, whatever he know thinks should be done, would in Western Europe now deny that the presence of large numbers of Muslims has created, for Infidels, a world that is far more unpleasant, far more exspensive (due to the costs of monitoring that Muslim population), and far more more physically dangerous than it would otherwise be? And if that presence makes the lives of those Infidels ever more unpleasant, ever more expensive, ever more physically dangerous, then there will be obvious consequences.
We have no way of distinguishing the true “moderate” Muslim — i.e., the “Muslim-for-identification-purposes-only” Muslim, from the other kind. Also, we have no way of guaranteeing that any particular seemingly “moderate” Muslim (even if this “moderation” is carefully and not carelessly defined, and even if that “moderation” is in fact real and not feigned) will not, for all sorts of often quite narrowly personal reasons, undergo a transformation and become an “immoderate” Muslim. Think of “Mike” Hawash, that successful Intel engineer, making his way to western China in the weeks after 9/11, in order to join Al Qaeda and the Taliban to fight his fellow Americans. And then there is the problem of the children and grandchildren: the experience in Europe shows that only a few jettison Islam altogether. Some, less intent on making a living and showing gratitude or at least lying low, find their solace in a more fanatical Islam. This is the well-known “my son the fanatic” problem, which was once merely a funny movie, and turned out to be art anticipating life — with a murderous vengeance.
Risk everything on a “maybe” given all that has happened, and all that we know about the tenets, the attitudes, the atmospherics, of Islam, and about the tremendous sense of loyalty to Islam that Muslims, even those “moderates,” immediately feel when they sense any criticism of it?
Don’t be silly. How stupid do you think we are?
