The Bogeyman of Islam


Allah is greater than any other Bogeyman!
Allahu Akbar!
Few things set me off more than an utterly stupid, politically correct statement about Islam; it causes me to tear out what little hair I have left, it causes me to cuss a blue streak and employ a lexicon of purple language, it transforms me into Harvey Wallbanger because it’s so perilously irrelevant. A Harvey Wallbanger, for those unfamiliar with cocktail argot, is a drink, a Screwdriver topped with Galliano

The mascot — named what else but Harvey Wallbanger — was a bleary-eyed, big-footed dude who surfed, skydived, life-guarded and even ran for president, always wearing a vacant expression of distress.

Dumb, cautious statements about Islam also leave me bleary-eyed and big-footed, as well. Here is Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May on the terrorist attack on London’s Parliament and on the citizenry in general, as reported by Fox News:

British officials did not release the attacker's identity or confirm a link with the Islamic State group, though May did say it would be wrong to describe the attack as "Islamic" extremism.

"It is Islamist terrorism," she said. "It is a perversion of a great faith."

Come again? You mean that after countless bombings, stabbings, beheadings, rapes, attacks on Western art, all in the name of the great Islamic Bogeyman in the Sky, Allah, the attacker was “perverting” a “great faith”?

The empty Nerf balls rattling around in George W. Bush’s head are also ricocheting around Theresa May’s. He claimed that on 9/11/01 the hijackers and killers had hijacked a great religion.

"Islam is a vibrant faith. Millions of our fellow citizens are Muslim. We respect the faith. We honor its traditions. Our enemy does not. Our enemy doesn't follow the great traditions of Islam. They've hijacked a great religion."

Islam cannot be “perverted.” It is naturally perverted, by Western standards of moral values and behavior. Islam “vibrates” with death. It worships death. Its adherents dream of death. It is not “extreme,” no more than Nazism or Communism were  “extreme.” They were what they were and did not counsel “moderation.”  They were already “radical.” Islam is Islam. A Bogeyman is a Bogeyman.  As is Islam.

As I noted in A Complete Way of Death”:

Lopez and Lyons score Petreaus on his politically correct verbal soft-shoe about Islam, pointing out that he overlooks or chooses to ignore the fact of the Global Jihadist Movement (GJM), and that Islam is fundamentally not “religion of peace” that was “hijacked” by “extremists.” Jihadists, they write,

…are carrying out the core principles of Islam as specified in the Quran, Shariah and the hadiths.

 Anyone who has bothered to peruse the Koran, Sharia law, and the hadiths, will acknowledge that this is a true statement. I maintain a folder devoted exclusively to violent Koranic verses; there are over two hundred of them I could easily cite here. The core principles reside in those verses and they are taken literally by jihadists of the Sunni and Shi’ite branches of Islam – as they were meant to be taken and which do not leave any room for subtextual interpretation. Those verses do not represent a guide to becoming flower children, but rather to becoming conquerors and killers.

Britain Against Islam has published these politically correct talking points and excuses for Islam that we can expect to hear ad nauseam in the coming days and weeks:

We all know the protocol by now -
1. This has nothing to do with Islam.
2. The guy was a mentally ill 'lone wolf'.
3. Those who object to points 1 and 2 are racist bigots.
4. Change Facebook profile to flag of inflicted country.
5. Light some candles, hold a vigil, and go on a peace march.
6. Wait for the next slaughter to happen.
7. Repeat.

That being said, The New York Times reported this morning, March 23rd:

LONDON — The Islamic State claimed responsibility on Thursday for the deadly attack outside the British Parliament, as Prime Minister Theresa May described the assailant as a British-born man whom the country’s domestic intelligence agency had investigated for connections to violent extremism.

The London police identified him on Thursday afternoon as Khalid Masood, 52, who had a long criminal history but no terrorism convictions. He had been living recently around Birmingham, England, where the vehicle used in the attack was rented. The police released few other details about him…..

Barely an hour after Mrs. May finished speaking, the Islamic State group issued a statement on the messaging app Telegram, declaring that the attacker was a “soldier” who “carried out the operation in response to appeals” to fight Western powers involved in military operations in the Middle East.


Altruism can only succumb to Islam
Will it ever dawn as a supernova in the minds of Theresa May and her reality-challenged cohorts that it won’t matter if Britain is involved in military operations against ISIS in the Middle East? Islam wants to destroy Western civilization and then lord it over the ruins.

Yesterday, March 22nd, Katie Hopkins on the Daily Mail had a few words for all those refugee welcomers, multiculturalists, and reality-resistant politicians like Theresa May.

They lay in the centre of London, face down where they fell. Stabbed by a knife, rammed with a car, flung, broken, into the Thames, life bleeding out on the curb…..

This place is just like Sweden. Terrified of admitting the truth about the threat we face, about the horrors committed by the migrants we failed to deter — because to admit that we are sinking, and fast, would be to admit that everything the liberals believe is wrong.

That multiculturalism has not worked. That it is one big fat failure and one big fat lie.

President Erdogan of Turkey said there is a war being waged between the crescent and the cross. But he is wrong. Because the cross is not strong. We are down on bended knee, a doormat to be trodden on, a joke only funny to those that wish us harm.

The war is between London and the rest of the country. Between the liberals and the right-minded. Between those who think it is more important to tip-toe around the cultures of those who choose to join us, rather than defend our own culture.


A Christian Lamb and an Islamic Wolf
I will say this about the weak cross of Christianity. It is not strong enough to combat the lethal blows of Islam. The blows are lethal because altruism is our current moral gold standard; Islam’s “victories” are by default. If Christ had emerged when Islam began to rise, he would have been slaughtered by Mohammad’s “soldiers.” There would be no “turning the other cheek” for Christ, except when a Muslim took a knife to his neck and severed his head.

I will say this here: no religion is “great,” especially not if it holds a Bogeyman in the Sky as the final moral arbiter and arranger of existence, as all the major religions do.

There is no radical Islam. There is only one Islam, which its adherents follow more, or less, faithfully.
