Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald discusses the unsteady state of civilization in Europe and elsewhere:
ISLAMABAD “” Taliban in tribal areas have warned male doctors against carrying out ultrasound tests on female patients.
In a pamphlet from the “˜North Waziristan Mujahideen”, they demanded that female doctors be appointed to carry out the procedure.
“We will award punishment in accordance with Islamic laws if any male doctor is found to be carrying out ultrasound tests on female patients,” read the pamphlet pasted on the main streets of Miranshah, according to media reports. — from this news item
One wonders what poor, wretched Afghanistan is doing with such top-of-the-line fruits of Infidel science and technology as ultrasound.
The demand itself is only a variant on the demands being made all over Western Europe, where Infidel taxpayers are paying for a grotesque series of entitlements for those who arrive, who do not admire or even like them, who wish them ill, who wish to change their laws and ways and who openly look forward to inheriting, through the magic of demographic change, their lands, their buildings, their institutions, their weapons, their everything — taking possession of them because the indigenous peoples have forgotten how to defend themselves, have forgotten that they are in the right, and they too have a legacy to protect, however unsatisfactorily they have done so so far. Part of that protection is to recognize that legacy, and not to idly cast it aside for the synthetic and infantile offerings that now pass for “culture” in the Western world.
Pediatricians in Italy have told me how Muslim men insist upon doing all the talking in office visits, the women silenced, even though, of course, it is the mothers who are in the best position, spending all their time with the children, to describe symptoms or changes in health. Surgeons have told me about Muslims demanding either female surgeons for female Muslim patients, or that male surgeons turn their backs while performing such surgery, and giving commands to female assistants. Men routinely show up with their wives, in order to serve as chaperones and interpreters and go-betweens. This, of course, causes more confusion. More time is spent trying to figure out if something is lost in the transmission. And so it goes, through the entire health service. The expense, the disruption is immense. Imagine the waiting-room, where a Muslim male glowers over his herd of females, and then they all move, as one group, into the small office where patients normally disrobe and put on hospital garb, or perhaps directly into the doctor’s office. Try to imagine — or don’t imagine, talk to the Infidel doctors in France, Italy England, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Spain, Germany. Ask them about the disruption, the craziness of it all, the greater expense in time and money.
Go ahead. Find out about the practice of medicine in Western Europe today, and Muslim patients (not clientele, for the bills are paid by Infidel taxpayers). Then having investigated what the consequences are for Infidel doctors (surgeons, pediatricians, radiologists, emergency-room doctors) of the belief-system, the tenets and attitudes of Islam, then find out what is happening in public schools, as a result of the adherents of that same belief-system.
Read, for example, the reports — some long suppressed — of inspecteurs, prepared for the Ministry of Education. Talk to teachers in big-city French schools, and even in small cities, even now in villages. Find out what the presence even of a single large Muslim family can do to wreak havoc in a small school, to its order and its curriculum.
Find out what subjects Muslim students refuse to study in history. So far the list includes World War II (and the Holocaust), the French Revolution and the Declaration of the Rights of Man, the Enlightenment and the Encyclopedists, and the Kings of France and their accomplishments. That’s not to mention all the writers — notably Montaigne for his skepticism. “Que scais-je?” meets, and yields to, “Allah knows best”, Voltaire to “Mahomet,” and there is so much more of this sort of thing — writers whom Muslim students simply will not read and will not allow the hapless teachers to teach.
It’s a mess, the schools and the hospitals, and so much else.
And it is all completely unnecessary. We, the inheritors and possessors of civilization, do not have to succumb to the bearers of a primitive and unpleasant faith. We don’t owe them this.
We do owe, however, Spinoza and Hume, Shakespeare and Dante, Michelangelo and Balthus.
