You see, Muslims believe that Islam is the perfection
of religion for man for all time. They call it ad
deen al kamal, the perfect religion. People, in their eyes, who have
not yet submitted to the will of Allah, are in a state of pre-Islamic
chaos, a state known to them as Jahiliyyah!
To Muslims, all Muslims, the whole world is classified in two parts: that
part of the world which has submitted, and is therefore in the Islamic
state, known as Dar al Islam,
and that part of the world which has yet to submit, and is therefore in a
pre-Islamic, chaotic, jahiliyyic state, known as Dar
al Harb, or the House of War!
The House of War is the part of the world which has
yet to be taken over, and must at some point be taken over in the future.
We, I am sorry to inform you, are in the House of War. So we can expect
anything at anytime.
Some people would ask why we were able to go for
quite a long time without problems with Muslims. The answer to that is a
simple one indeed. First of all, there were relatively few Muslims living
in the West, so the ones that did live here were not powerful. Secondly,
Muslims living in the Islamic world were, for the most part and for many
years, poor by anyone's standards. This all changed with the Oil Embargo
of the 70s - a time when the price of oil on the world markets soared. As
a result of this, the Islamic world became rich and empowered. Money is
power; and it talks loudly! In recent years we have seen evidence aplenty
of Islam being on the move. I tell you now: If we do not find a way of
clipping its wings here in the West, we shall lose our democracy, and we
shall be in deep, deep trouble.
So the trouble we will have with Muslims will not
come only from without, but in the future we can expect trouble from the
Muslims within. The millions of Muslims living here in the West will not
integrate, because it is not in their worldview to do so. It is also
forbidden them by their very own Prophet Himself, the Prophet Muhammad. He
forbade Muslims even to befriend infidels. He also exhorted them to kill
us. And he certainly told them that they should live separate lives, and
dress and behave differently, so that they could easily tell themselves
No Western politician is going to be able to change
these facts. For facts they are indeed. Moreover, as Islam will grow here,
their numbers will become greater and greater, and they will be able to
use our democratic system to outvote us and introduce their form of
government based as it is on their beloved Shariah,
or quranic laws! How do you propose we shall be able to stop them? We
shall be outnumbered, and as the outcome of democratic elections depends
on the number of votes cast, we shall be able to do nothing about it! This
time will come quicker than we might think, because so few babies are
being born to infidel families.
The only thing left for people to do, will be to
fight. Inevitably, at some point, civil war will ensue. If the political
process fails people, then this will be all that will be left for them:
civil war, guerre civile, Bürgerkrieg, call it what you will.
But one thing I can assure you, no politicians' sweet
talk, posturing, or manvring, will get us out of this one without
conflict at some point in the future.
You see, one of the biggest problems for the West is
its devotion to the concept of freedom of religion. This is a lofty
concept and ideal indeed; but this devotion blinds people to one important
reality: Islam is not just a religion, but a political system also.
Indeed, it is more of a political system than anything else, and it is, in
addition, a political system diametrically opposed to our own. It abhors
freedom of choice, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of
anything that we so cherish! The only thing one is free to do in Islam is
become a Muslim, and submit to the will of Allah!
These two systems are totally immiscible, and
unfortunately, we have imported this immiscibility right into the heart of
the West! To our own great disadvantage, and to the disadvantage of our
long-term peace and security. What, I ask you, will the Americans do when
the ever growing Muslim population in
starts wanting to tinker with the Americans' beloved Constitution? When
Muslims will see their way clear to supplant the Constitution with Shariah law?
Questions like these are the ones we should be
grappling with NOW. To wait until the time comes would be foolish indeed.
Wake up to the harsh realities of life in the
twenty-first century! We've got some collective thinking to do if we wish
to save ourselves from darkness! Perhaps we shall, indeed, be forced to
think about having to re-classify Islam as a political system first and
foremost, a political system immiscible with our own, and one whose
advance needs to be forestalled. This may be one of our only sensible
alternatives. Since to give complete, unhampered freedom to Islam to grow
here in the West is tantamount to digging our own graves!
