A huge crowd of Malaysian Muslims on Friday burnt a Zionist regime’s flag and an effigy of American President George W Bush during protests over Zionists’ atrocities in Gaza.
The ralliers marched from a mosque after Friday Prayers to the British high commission and then to America’s embassy, both in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
They shouted “Long Live Islam”, “Down With ‘Israel'” and “Down With Infidels” before setting the Bush effigy and flag on fire in front of America’s embassy, which was heavily guarded by Malaysian police and two water cannon trucks. — from this news item
Non-Arab Muslims need to have brought home to them the real nature of Islam as the “Arab National Religion” (as Anwar Shaikh titled one of his books), and to realize that within the universalist claims of Islam is the justification and promotion of the most successful imperialism in history, that of Arab imperialism — linguistic, cultural, and political — for which Islam serves as a vehicle.
What do Malaysians have to do with Jews rebuilding their commonwealth on land they scrupulously bought, or inherited (the state and waste lands, which make up nearly 90% of the total)? These are lands that had passed from the Ottomans to the government of Mandatory Palestine, which was set up by the League of Nations for the express purpose of establishing a Jewish National Home — leading naturally to a state, the state of Israel.
Why are Malaysians agitating on behalf of the local Arabs, who were carefully renamed, after the Six-Day War, the “Palestinian people”? Do the damn research yourself: try to find in any of the U.N. records, or anywhere else, a single mention by a single Arab of the “Palestinian people” before the Six-Day War, and then ask yourself why. And now, why should non-Arab Muslims, the Turks or the Iranians, or for that matter the Malaysians (at least one Malaysian intellectual has complained about the growing arabization of Malaysia), become little Arabs, assuming Arab names or lineages or dress or anything? What an act of self-humiliation, civilizational immolation! Why should this be endured?
And why should non-Arabs upon whom Islam was foisted any longer endure the natural suspicion and hostility that all Muslims will, and rightly, feel from an aroused Infidel world? Why not give up on Islam, the “Arab National Religion,” or at least attempt to create a non-Arab version that will throw out all the parts of it (the dhimmi status for non-Muslims, the duty to participate in the Jihad so as conquer Dar al-harb and incorporate it into Dar al-Islam) that were obviously created to justify and promote conquest by the Arabs of richer, more advanced, more settled communities of Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians?
Why should Malaysians agitate for the “Palestinians”? The Malaysians clearly know nothing about the Jewish connection to “Palestine,” and nothing about the invention of the “Palestinian people.” They do not know that that people was invented so as to exploit the naivete of so many in assuming “hmm, there’s ‘Palestine’ and over here are some people called the ‘Palestinian people’ so I guess the place must belong to them. Case closed.” It is that shallow and that effective.
One can understand why some Arabs who see right through Islam would nonetheless, out of an identification with “Uruba” or “Arabness,” and a civilizational piety — after all, if Islam is not so wonderful, then the value of that Islam as the “gift of the Arabs” to the world is called into question, and so are the givers — refuse to distance themselves or express to Infidels, or in public at all, their doubts about Islam.
But nothing should stop from criticizing Islam those whose ancestors were converted, either by force or by compulsion of another kind — that is, by forcing non-Muslims to endure a status of humiliation, degradation, and physical insecurity until, over time, a great many converted. Most of the Muslims in Pakistan and Bangladesh and India itself are surely the descendants of Hindus or in some cases, Buddhists or Jains, who could not stand the oppression inflicted by the Muslim rulers.
“Death to Infidels”? “Death to America”? “Death to Israel”? What puppets of Arab marionettes, reaching and manipulating more than a thousand years beyond the grave, to make these Malaysians dance to an Arab belief-system’s tune.
How embarrassed, how humiliated, they should feel, those non-Arab Muslims. Some must.
