A western Dream and Ummah's Nightmare
about the “moderate Islam”, Fiamma Nirenstein, [an Italian journalist who writes from
for the daily La Stampa] claims that in some Islamic societies moderation is in fact a reality;
or at least, we can start to see a significant number of “moderate
Muslims and moderate Islamic communities”. To back up her claim she
television program on polygamy that is hosted by a woman. This, and some
other isolated episodes give the illusion of the existence of a moderate
Islam, compatible with our society and our secular thought and democracy.
There is a common misconception among those who don’t know Islam
that Islam can be reformed and that a “moderate Islam” can be
achieved. The reality is, however different. Moderate Islam is a myth and
a nothing but a western illusion.
Muslims do not exist. Such an idea presupposes rejection of some or all
Islamic tenets. Anyone who rejects, or wishes to reform even one single
teaching of the Quran is considered to be a renegade and an apostate.
is not a religion with spiritual or ethical precepts. It is rather a
political system that aims to conquer the world. It avers to be
irrefutable, eternal, and universal. Thus a Muslims is obliged to believe
in all Allah’s teachings. Without Islam, a Muslim would be lost, would
be deprived of any identity and will lose his sense of belonging. Being a
member of the Islamic Umma gives him the strength, the confidence, a sense
of superiority that otherwise he wouldn’t have.
promised the Muslims an orgiastic life after death with virgins with big
eyes and fair skins, perpetual erection, rivers of wine, luxurious palaces
and plenty of carnal pleasures. He instilled in them the illusion of being
superior to others by virtue of their beliefs and that they would be a
victorious people, led by Allah and supported by angels and Ababil birds.
This is an irresistible bargain. A Muslim would never barter this
orgiastic eternal future to conform to the laws of a secular society. What
we, as westerners, consider “modern civilization”, for Muslims is Kufr,
shirk and Haram.
reason upon their religious and political ideologies. It took centuries
before we could liberate our societies from religious domination, it is
therefore unthinkable that a theocratic and totalitarian society like the
Islamic Umma with a draconian book such as the Quran as their book of
guidance can reach the same objective in a short time.
for Fiamma Nirenstein
“moderate Islam” means mainly the recognition of the State of Israel
by all Islamic states and to stop Palestinian suicide bombers.
For the west it means to defeat international terrorism, the Jihad.
While for Muslims, “moderate Islam” means to reject Allah’s
orders; in other words, to apostatise.
Westerners consider those Muslims who do not blow themselves up, don’t
slaughter the infidels, or stone their women as “moderate”. On
the other hand, these same “moderates”, support Palestinian suicide
bombers, justify the decapitations of innocent contractors and the stoning
of the adulteress. I’ve never seen Muslims demonstrating against capital
punishment for apostasy, against stoning, against the beheadings or the
kidnapping of American or western civilians.
are not concerned about the opinion of others about them and these
barbaric acts perpetrated by their brethrens. Their thought is structured
in such way that they accept such these barbaric teachings. They consider
it right and natural to do whatever Muhammad or Allah commanded them to
would be interesting to ask the “intellectuals” and the so called
“moderate Muslims”, such as Tarik Ramadan, what they would do if their
daughter married a Christian or an atheist or even worse, a Jew. What
would they do if she decided to convert to any other religion or if she
publicly declares her homosexuality? Would
they still remain calm and “moderate”?
