Fighting Back PCism
Natasha, sent me an email and among other things she asked:
|What should someone like me do with the information on Islam you provide? The message of your site is that there are no gradations in Islam and accepting Islam in your midst is diminishing yourself to dimmitude I have Muslim friends and colleagues. We don’t talk about religion or politics much. If something happens like recently with Theo van Gogh or some attack they will say they oppose these kinds of things but then you would say that they are lying and they know they are lying. So what then? Do you propose I break off my association with them unless they get rid of their religion?|
Unfortunately the solution to this problem is not that simple. You are absolutely right, your friends, like most of the Muslims want to live a normal life and do not care very much about religion. But the problem is that they belong to a very dangerous cult. The fact that they are good people does not diminish the fact that Islam is very evil. They can’t wash their hands and pretend since they are not doing the killings they are not to be blamed. If you want to stop Islamic extremism you have to stop Islam. The terrorists have an unlimited supply of new recruits. They come from normal average Muslims much like your friends. Once they make that step and become terrorists, the lines of communication are cut off. They become killing machines. At that moment the only way to deal with them is to kill them or they will kill you. However, there is no a clear line dividing the terrorists and your good friends. They are all Muslims to varying degrees. Some practice it and some do it less. But they all believe in the same religion and at anytime any Muslim may decide to become a practitioner.
The only time we can reach them is before they make that transition and that is where your friends are. We have to make extremism less appealing to the Muslim youth. The only way to do that is to make Islam look unattractive. You can’t fight Islamic Terrorism without fighting Islam. The Islamic Terrorists are not motivated by an extraneous philosophy. They are motivated by the pure Islam. As long as people believe in Islam there is always a chance for them to become terrorists. All they have to do is to read the Quran and they will be ready to kill.
When the westerners convert to Islam, this confirms Muslims in their faith and they turn to terrorism. The reverse is also true. If a great number of Muslims leave Islam, it will make the Muslim youth doubt Islam and the terrorists can find fewer fools to recruit. Islam is sustained only with hypes and terrorism by intense hate. A hate that is capable of driving a young man to commit suicide for the most absurd causes.
We have to realize that there is no solution to this wave of terror. The only solution is to attack Islam itself and force the Muslims to leave it in huge numbers. Muslims must be told that Islam is not what they think and that the true Islam is that of the terrorists.
So it is very important to lead a huge mass of Muslims out of Islam. However, we have a big obstacle in front of us. This big obstacle is political correctness or PCism and good people like you who do not want to hurt the feelings of the Muslims. They protect the Muslims and defend their rights to believe in this cult of terror and shield them from any criticism. What these people do not understand is that even though the average Muslims are innocent, they are part of a machinery of terror called Islam. It makes no difference if they scream, “This is not the real Islam” and “My Islam is peaceful”. They can’t redefine Islam. The definition of Islam is made in the Quran and it’s very clear and that is how the terrorists understand it.
If Muslims do not know the real Islam, they should be told. But then they must make their minds whether they want to remain Muslims and support that cult of terror or leave it and join the fold of humanity.
Islam teaches religious apartheid and promotes violence against non-Muslims! So, what does precisely a “peaceful Muslim” mean? Does it mean a non believing believer`? A peaceful Muslim makes as much sense as a round square. It is an oxymoron.
If Millions of Muslims start leaving Islam; the entire Muslim world will be shaken and a much overdue soul searching among the Muslims will begin. Once this discussion begins, it will end in the fall of Islam and the extremists will lose their legitimacy, because Islam loses its legitimacy.
We can’t fight terrorism and endorse its ideology at the same time. This is cognitive dissonance and that is why we are not making any headway in our war against terrorism.
When the Nazis started persecuting and killing the Jews the majority of the Germans had nothing to do with it. But they said noting and they let the holocaust happen. They were either afraid to speak out or they were ignorant of what was going on. The murderers were only a small minority. But that small minority had the backing of an entire nation. So although the Germans were good people, they were guilty of complacency. Ideally, they should have revolted and denounced Nazism. But because they did not, sixty million people perished.
Unfortunately at that time, most Europeans used to think like you. They thought not all Germans are bad and they did not want to be too harsh on them. They thought by appeasing the Germans they will soften their hearts and win their friendship. This misguided policy of appeasement, emboldened the Nazis and then the war became inevitable.
Let me make this very clear. Islamic terrorism will not go away unless and until Islam is undermined and a big number of Muslims start leaving it. This won’t happen unless Muslims are pressed to make a choice.
An addict will not quit his addiction unless he is faced with some urgency. He must be told to quit or else. If everyone around him is protective of his right to continue with his addiction and the dangers of his vice are not discussed lest this may offend him, he will never know that what he is doing is wrong and he will not quit.
You asked, “Do you propose I break off my association with them unless they get rid of their religion?”
You must be supportive of Muslims as human beings but at the same time very firm against their adherence to their cult. Good people should not tolerate Islam just as they would not tolerate racism, sexism, or any form of apartheid. You must make them realize that you love them, but Islam is evil and their mere adherence to Islam is a validation of terrorism. They denouncing of terrorism by words is not enough, they must reject it completely by rejecting Islam. It is their responsibility to investigate the truth about Islam and it is not acceptable that they follow a terrorist of the seventh century merely because they have been told he was a perfect man. Today’s terrorists are following this man’s example and your friends support them by calling themselves Muslims. They must feel the pressure from all sides. They must realize that the entire world rejects Islam. Muslims can’t have it both ways. They either must side with humanity or be branded as the enemy.
You said they condemn terrorism. Show them the verses of the Quran upon which the terrorists act and ask whether they condemn those verses too.
The peace of mankind depends on millions of Muslims leaving Islam. They won’t do that as long as they do not feel the urge and are pampered and protected by people like you. Do you see your responsibility here? Do you realize now that you are part of the problem?
When a surgeon takes a scalpel and cuts through the flesh of a patient, it is not out of malice. If he does not operate the patient will die. But you tell me forcing people to leave Islam is cruel! You rather see the constant beheadings, child massacres, bombings and the Armageddon than hurt the feelings of your friends. This is called PCism and it is the biggest hurdle to peace. Because of you they will not wake up and thanks to you the ignorance is perpetuated, their misery never ends and many lives will be lost.
Good intentions are not enough. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. This is a time when we have to put aside our emotions and make rational decisions. The murderer of Pim Fortuyn was an animal rights activist. He thought Fortuyn was racist and he wanted to protect the underdog. People with good intentions but little understanding often do more harm than good. “Ignorance is the mother of all ills” said Socrates.
We are facing the destruction of this planet and no one even notices what the problem is. The problem is not poverty, it’s not lack of education, it’s not lack of opportunities, it’s not land, it’s not Wahhabism, and it’s not America or Israel . The problem is Islam. The problem is this cultish and fascistic sense of “brotherhood” that Muhammad inculcated in the minds of his benighted followers that shuts off the rest of mankind. So if a bunch of Muslim terrorists are humiliated in Abu Ghraib, All Muslims take it personally and want revenge but when hundreds of children are massacred in Beslan they remain silent. If a Palestinian is killed, they all want revenge but if hundreds or thousands of Jews, Spaniards or Americans are massacred their stone cold hearts feels nothing. This is fascism and it does not exist anywhere else. The rest of us see ourselves as humans first and then anything else. Muslims see themselves as Muslims first and since Islam is an anti human doctrine, their humanity has become a causality of their barbaric faith.
Islam is cancer of humanity. This cancer must be removed. The therapy can be painful; but if you do nothing this cancer will kill us all.
In another question you said that the Dutch government has decided to expel 28,000 asylum seekers irrespective of their religion or race and that some of them are Chinese, East Europeans or ex-Muslims who had nothing to do with the murder of Theo Van Gogh.
This is another sad mishap of the sick PC mindset. The Dutch authorities are too chicken to just kick the Muslims out. So they sacrifice everyone just to not give the impression that they are discriminating against a certain religion. This is cowardice to say the least. It is time that the people of the world single out Islam and put the blame where the blame is due.
