Cotabato (AsiaNews) — The voice of those who do not know Islam “is becoming louder” and hate texts published by those who “barely understand the Koran” are appealing to Muslim youth more and more.
The conviction that this phenomenon should be “countered by all possible means” has prompted the Guardians of the House of Opinion — a group of muftis in the south of the Philippines — to write 55 sermons that will be read in mosques across the country throughout the coming year….
The mufti said the decision to write the sermons was taken because “there is nothing in common between Islam, which stands for peace, harmony, order, justice and compassion, and acts of hatred, vengeance and evil committed by a fringe of Muslims.” — from this article
If copies of these khutbas can be obtained, then one will be able to see just how they do it: what they avoid, and what they willfully misconstrue, and what they use to divert attention from the essence of Islam.
And if those copies can be obtained, they should be published online, so Infidels can point out just how removed they are from the reality of mainstream Islam. They did the same in Turkey, for 80 years. They managed, by systematically constraining Islam as a political and social force, to make Turkey what it is today. That is to say, they made it into a country that has indeed created a “secular” class. That class, however, constitutes at most a fourth of the population, and is under constant threat by the Turks who, despite every effort, and all those pre-fabricated khutbas written in a ministry of religion especially devoted to constraining Islam and monitoring the mosques, have remained loyal to the true, that is the menacing Islam, with which we are all, alas, now so familiar.
Or we can skip our own punching of holes in these efforts, and wait for Muslims to do it themselves. It will not be hard to do. You only need a Qur’an, copies of Bukhari and Muslim, and the Sira in any of the authoritative, for-Muslims-only versions. That’s all. And the futility and hopelessness of the project will be clear.
No matter how many times the mantra is repeated that “moderate Muslims are the solution,” it remains untrue and unprovable. That the West needs to find ways to divide and demoralize, and thereby weaken, the camp of Islam is true. But it is not the “moderates” facing down the “immoderate” Muslims, with those “moderate” Muslims being given every assistance, and we Infidels doing nothing, saying nothing, about Islam that might “offend the moderates.”
No, the real divisions within Islam that need to be exploited are those between:
1) Sunnis and Shi’ites (Ibadi Muslims hardly count). It is to the advantage of Infidels that this sectarian conflict in Iraq continue, widen, and have spill-over effects in neighboring countries, which will undoubtedly feel they must send “volunteers” and money and weapons to aid their coreligionists in Iraq. It is no different from the Iran-Iraq War — which, from the Infidel point of view, should have gone on forever.
2) Arab and non-Arab Muslims. An independent Kurdistan might serve as a heartening example to other non-Arab peoples — especially the Berbers in Algeria and elsewhere in North Africa — who might observe the Kurdish example, and, deeply resentful of Arab cultural and linguistic imperialism, the most successful in human history, insist on re-berberizing themselves. How many of those who bear Arab names in Algeria, or who think of themselves as Arab, are in fact Berbers forcibly converted long ago, who need to rediscover their own individual and collective history and to come to regard Islam, which intelligent people born into Islam will seek reasons for fleeing, as mainly a vehicle for Arab supremacism?
3) Oil-rich Arabs and Muslims, and the other Arabs and Muslims, who right now obtain vast sums and every other kind of assistance not from fellow Muslims, but from Infidels. All Infidel aid must stop, and Arabs and Muslims without oil wealth encouraged to go to the Saudis, the Kuwaitis, the Qataris, the people of the Emirates, and ask them to help fellow members of the Umma. Either they will be turned down, or they won’t. If they are turned down, they will be furious. If they are not turned down, they will still be angry, because whatever they are given will, they feel, not be enough. They will resent the rich members of the Umma for squandering what should, some of those Arabs and Muslims will start to insist, be part of the collective wealth of the whole Umma. And the givers, the Saudis and others, will also resent those they are giving money to, and there will be constant mutual recrimination and resentment — which can only be good for Infidels. And of course, every dollar sent to Egypt or Jordan or “the Palestinians” for staples, will not be money available to spend building mosques, and maintaining them, and paying for propaganda and well-financed systematic campaigns of Da’wa, or for those traitorous Western hirelings to be found all over the West, doing the Saudi bidding.
These are the three potential divisions within the Camp of Islam that the Pentagon and the State Department, and Congress, and the press, and the television, and people who pay for all of that, to focus on.
Here’s an idea. Let there be a contest. Let it be announced. Let the prize be big. Not as big as Richard Branson’s $25 million offered to the person who can come up with the best idea for saving the world from further environmental damage. Let it be offered for the best set of proposals on how to contain the worldwide Jihad. Let’s set the prize at, say, $5 million.
That’s big enough.
Oh, I claim the first annual one, based on about a thousand postings setting out precisely those things that must be done, at this very website.
Where shall I pick up my check? Now I can discharge other duties, sweetly, and put it all in book form.
