“Half the work that is done in the world is to make things appear what they are not.” –E.R.Beadle
Recently there was a terrorist attack in London, England. Police confirmed there were five dead and forty injured. The attacker, a devout Muslim, was shot by police, but not before he stabbed to death one of the officers on the scene. In a statement to the British public, the Muslim Council of Britain announced, “We condemn this attack,” but that “it is still too early to speculate on the motives” – as if there were any question as to what were the terrorist’s motives. As if those motives did not exist in the Muslim world.
We now expect after every Islamic terrorist attack to hear the disclaimer that it had nothing to do with Islam, and that the peaceful message of Islam was “hijacked” by the terrorists. The Western world is by now becoming inured to the slaughter of innocents by Muslim madmen. And more often than not, the victims of this slaughter are Muslim. That this is happening under the gaze of an insouciant Western world says everything about why Muslim fundamentalists are invigorated and believe a universal Islamic caliphate is a tangible objective. But it says even more about how delusional the Western world is for believing that the encroachments upon our democratic freedoms was not a direct consequence of accommodating the Islamic supremacists who walk among us.
It has been discovered that the Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr, an invited guest of the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in Montreal’s Saint-Michel neighborhood, delivered a sermon there in which he quoted a verse from a hadith demanding of Islam’s faithful, “O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” The CBC reports that “the president of the Muslim Council of Montreal, Salam Elmenyawi, wants to know why the imam was invited.” Apparently the Muslim Council of Montreal is not privy to the many anti-Jewish verses in the Quran and its hadiths. Apparently this same Muslim Council of Montreal had no prior knowledge of Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr’s scheduled appearance, or of the type of anti-Jewish message he must certainly be famous for. CBC reports that Imam Ziad Asali of the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects was “mystified” as why this particular imam was invited “to come and give a sermon and spread this hatred in Montreal against any community.” Apparently here is yet another Muslim organization unaware of Islam’s anti-Jewish rhetoric. Let me guess: the Quran’s definition of Jews as “the sons of apes and swine” is not really anti-Jewish. Perhaps the Quran is referring only to Jewish Zionists, because we all know how particularly evil they can be.
Imam Asali reassures “infidel” Canadians that for any cleric to “use the themes of the Prophet to spread hatred is actually something that is disrespectful towards the Prophet himself.” Forget how disrespectful (and injurious) such themes are to the Canadian Jewish community; he wants us to overlook that and be more concerned about how such themes are “disrespectful towards the Prophet himself.” The imam went on to say that there are “mosques in Montreal that embrace a more extremist message.” Really? This tells me that the AICP is not concerned with Canadian “extremists,” only Jordanian “extremists.” Perhaps Imam Asali is suggesting that non-Muslim Canadians should also not be concerned with Canadian “extremists” in our midst, but only with Jordanian “extremists.” Canadians are to carry on as if there were no terrorists living among us.
Tacitus wrote, “Candour and generosity, unless tempered by due moderation, lead to ruin.” There is not a more definite description of political correctness than this. The Western media, the collective that gave birth to the very idea of political correctness, exalts itself as the sole authority on what is to be deemed good and what should be condemned as evil; all other points of view be damned. Therefore, all Muslim immigrants are good, border security measures against possible Islamic terrorist infiltration bad; CNN faultlessly honest, Breitbart and Fox racist and xenophobic; Islam “hijacked”; jihadists merely misunderstood, their detractors nothing but shameless populists and Islamophobes.
The New York Times, in a recent article about Muslim refugees avoiding official border stations and crossing into Canada from the United States illegally, said this can be “freighted with emotion, happen quickly and can seem almost procedural, occurring over and over every day in recent weeks.” No mention of the fact that many Canadians are furious about this totally unacceptable situation – a situation condoned by a globalist Prime Minister who is more concerned with his personal appearance than with the security and deteriorating national identity of the country and the citizens he has sworn by oath to protect.
The list of contradictions between the real world and the world fabricated by those who work tirelessly every day to “make things appear what they are not” is long. This force of untruth is growing stronger every day. It was “us” against “them” long ago, only nobody seemed to notice. Now both sides of this conflict are completely entrenched, one side for good, the other for evil; one side for democracy, for freedom, the other for tyranny and fascism. In his recent Front Page Mag article, “The Civil War Is Here,” the ever-prescient Daniel Greenfield writes: “The left is a treasonous movement. The Democrats became a treasonous organization when they fell under the sway of a movement that rejects our system of government, its laws and its elections. Now their treason is coming to a head. They are engaged in a struggle for power against the government. That’s not protest. It’s not activism. The old treason of the sixties has come of age. A civil war has begun.”
