“Europe Still ‘Shocked, Shocked'”

24 May 2017

In her article titled, “Manchester: Europe Still ‘Shocked, Shocked,'”  Judith Bergman has this to say about reaction to this weeks’ horrific act of Islamist terrorism:

“After hearing of the Manchester terrorist attack, politicians once more communicated their by the now old routine of “shock” and “grief” at the predictable outcome of their own policies.

Most dumbfounding of all, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that she was watching the developments in Manchester “with grief and horror” and that she found the attack “incomprehensible”.

Every time a European leader publicly endorses Islam as a great faith, a “religion of peace”, or claims that violence in Islam is a “perversion of a great faith”, despite massive evidence to the contrary, they signal in the strongest way possible that with every devastating attack, the West is ripe for the taking.”

 

Angela Merkel finds it “incomprehensible,” really?  Don’t believe it for a minute. She is among the chief architects of this horror, and of the ones that came before, and the others that will without doubt come after it.  She and all the other cultural marxists in western governments, business, and academia have for decades now been pursuing four discernible goals: Derision of Western culture, Deconstruction of the family, Delegitimizing of Christian belief, and Destruction of the very possibility of self-defense.

There is nothing incomprehensible about this or any of the other horrors.  No, everything is going as planned.

    Amazing the liberal media is more concerned with the fake Russian President Trump story then the RADICAL ISLAMIC SLAUGHTER of young girls at a concert. Is it just me or is half the country really this stupid?

    The cultural relativism on display is nonsense. Islam has a problem, and it has had a problem since its very inception. It is at war against itself and against whatever people it comes across. It slaughters in the Philippines. It slaughters in India. It slaughters in Myanmar. It slaughters in Nigeria. It slaughters in the Sudan. It has done these things from the beginning, and it is all right there in the Quran, let alone the hadith.

    A phobia is an irrational fear. The left thinks we are afraid of people who practice Islam, and that we have no cause to feel this way. They are wrong on three different counts. It is not fear we feel, but anger. It is not the people we are angry at; it is the ideology. And it is not irrational; it is based on a knowledge of both the tenants and the history of Islam. Their defense of Islam is what is irrational. Their belief that we can peacefully coexist with an ideology that demands everyone either convert or be killed. Their ignorance of the violent history of Islam, going all the way back to Mohammed himself. Their refusal to recognize the rise in violent crime, sexual assault, and of course, terrorism, following an influx of these poor, persecuted, peaceful refugees. How many people have to die, how many women have to be raped, how many reporters, trying to show how misunderstood these people are, have to be attacked before the media will accept that there is a fundamental problem with Islam. Not “radical” or “extremist” Islam, ISLAM.

      I don’t know if you’ve read much history, but Christians have been pretty good at killing each other too. And they have been no strangers to rape and mayhem. In fact, pretty much any poverty stricken and densely packed population will have elevated rates of pretty much any crime you care to name. I actually agree that Islam is problematic. But so was the Spanish Inquisition, the English Civil War, the French persecution to the Hugonots, and the near extemination of Native Americans.

        I have read great deal of history, as well as theology. I’ve even read the Qur’an. Have you?

        There is plenty of violence and hatred towards the other present in the world. Adherents of any religion can be rightly accused of engaging in it. Whether this violence is ordained by their religion, or just springing from the hearts of violent men is the key question.

        I defy you to show me a verse in the New Testament that incites violence. It can’t be done. Those who want to claim Christianity is as violent as Islam are forced to rely on historical events. In doing so they confuse history with theology, conflating the temporal actions of men with the teachings of the religion. The history of Christianity, which includes violence, is being conflated with Islamic theology, which commands violence.

        Even in the Hebrew Scriptures, the Old Testament, much of which was abrogated or fulfilled,depending on one’s point of view, by Jesus, all the historic violence committed by the Hebrews and recorded in the Old Testament is just that,history. It happened. God commanded it. But it revolved around a specific time and place and was directed against a specific people. At no time did such violence go on to become codified, or standardized, into Jewish law. In short, biblical accounts of violence are descriptive, not prescriptive.

        The Islamic violence that we witness almost daily in the news may seem, to a rather ill informed observer, to be similar to the violence of the Hebrew Scriptures. However Islamic violence and hatred toward those outside their faith has been standardized, prescribed, in Islamic law and applies at all times. Thus, while the violence found in the Qur’an has a historical context, its ultimate significance is theological. Consider these verses from the Qur’an, verses often referred to as the “sword-verses”:

        “Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way.” Qur. 9:5

        “Fight those who believe not in God and the Last Day, and do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden – such men as practise not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book – until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled” Qur. 9:29

        The renowned Muslim scholar Ibn Khaldun, who lived in the 14th century, refuted any notion that Islamic jihad is about defensive warfare, or, as some want to suggest,internal struggle. He said this:
        “In the Muslim community, the holy war [jihad] is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and the obligation to convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force … The other religious groups did not have a universal mission, and the holy war was not a religious duty for them, save only for purposes of defense … They are merely required to establish their religion among their own people. That is why the Israelites after Moses and Joshua remained unconcerned with royal authority [e.g., a caliphate]. Their only concern was to establish their religion [not spread it to the nations] … But Islam is under obligation to gain power over other nations.”

        Perhaps you should read a little more history yourself, and theology as well.

    The backlash is coming, though not fast enough. But it’s coming.

    How many Muslim individuals are in Europe and the US? A very few get their heads screwed on wrong and create a tragedy. As an American, we see Muslims do mass shootings. Of course, we see good old boys do the same thing because their ex got a restraining order, they were fired, or their dog told them it was a good idea. We kill an average of 90 people per in autos, and another 90 in general gun violence. So yes, I may get killed by a Muslim radical. However, if I do get shot, it is more likely that the shooter is my fellow American. And there would be a 90% chance it is somebody I know. I think demonization entire groups because of a tiny minority is a fundamental failure to analyze the threat. And going nuts when you are more likely to die in your own bathtub seems a bit overboard. In fact, you are probably playing the radicals game.

      The radicals are not a small, isolated, fringe movement. They are not, as you suggest, just a few who have their “head screwed on wrong.” Radical Islamists control territory, ISIS being the most extreme example, as well as Al Qaeda during its residencies in Afghanistan and Sudan. They are committing acts of unspeakable barbarity. They have tens, possibly hundreds of thousands of volunteers, and larger numbers of sympathizers. And the leaders of western nations have thrown open the borders to allow these Islamists to bring their evil acts into Europe.
      Your comment above contains some very muddled reasoning, and some incoherent comparisons.

    Our principal challenge isn’t defending ourselves against Moslem terrorists; our challenge is confronting the decades of cultural rot that has corrupted our society from within: we’re living in a house that’s about to collapse because the beams and floorboards have been eaten away.
    Our real enemy isn’t the alien hordes at the gate, or even the murderous aliens among us, but the people who opened the gate and welcomed them in – and who even now, respond to the killing of our children with Lennonism – who call the straightforward analysis of events “islamaphobia” – who call us Nazis.
    These are the real enemies, and we’re as reluctant and unable to deal with them as the Left is to deal with the terrorists – because they’re our neighbors, our friends from college and even our relatives. We enable them by our tolerance just as they enable the terrorists with theirs.
    We don’t have the moral or intellectual right to cavil about the Left’s insistence that accommodation of jihad is open mindedness as long as we follow the same policy with our neighbors the Simpsons and our cousin Jojo.
