On the campaign trail coming up to the 2012 election, Republican hopeful Herman Cain confessed to not knowing who was the president of, quote, “Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan.”

I had a soft spot for Cain, although in retrospect it was probably just solidarity with a fellow 1945 baby and math geek, and desperation at the awfulness of the other Republican candidates. I bet Cain still doesn’t know who is the President of Uzbekistan. I don’t either, and I can’t be bothered to look it up. Not all knowledge is worth the trouble of acquiring it.

New York City got a little taste of Uzbekistan last week, though, when a native of that country, inspired by radical Islam, deliberately, with malice aforethought, drove a truck along a Manhattan bike path, killing eight and injuring a dozen more.

The Uzbeki, name of Sayfullo Saipov, 29 years old, married with either two or three young children, came to the U.S.A. in 2010 on a Diversity visa. He’s worked as an Uber driver, perhaps having misread the word “Uber” in the job ad as “Uzbek.”

It’s well known, I think, that there is a desperate shortage of Americans that know how to drive automobiles, so it’s right and good that we import drivers from Central Asia to alleviate the problem. Otherwise vehicles would be left rotting in the garages.

Seriously, though, as I whined in my monthly diary the other day, for commentators like myself, who have been writing about the nation’s immigration follies for, in my case, nigh on twenty years, it’s hard to come up with anything to say that we haven’t said a dozen times before.

Mark Steyn, as imaginative and creative a writer as we could wish, has fallen back on just cutting and pasting from articles he wrote back in the first George W. Bush administration.

I can do even better than that. I have pieces pointing out the insanity of U.S. immigration that I published back when Bill Clinton was President!

Cut’n’paste from me, National Review Online, October 17, 2000:

This lunacy has even affected the Higher Journalism. The current (Sept/Oct 2000) issue of Foreign Affairs has a piece titled “Out-of-Control Immigration” by one James Goldsborough, bylined as “Foreign Affairs Columnist for The San Diego Union-Tribune.” Mr. Goldsborough takes us through all the idiocy of current immigration practice (there doesn’t seem much point to saying “law”), and gives a grim picture of the prospects for massive civil disorder if the economy takes a downturn and all those aliens suddenly have no jobs. After all this good sense, he concludes as follows:

If Congress and the next president do not come up with reasonable solutions along the lines proposed by the Jordan Commission, the field will be clear for the unreasonable solutions advanced by politicians such as Pete Wilson and Patrick Buchanan and discriminatory initiatives like Proposition 187.

Those “unreasonable” solutions and “discriminatory” initiatives include such measures as denying welfare services to illegal aliens and free public education to their children. Patrick Buchanan favors—oh, my God!—arresting illegal aliens and deporting them. [Links added]

I intend no disrespect to Mr. Saipov’s victims. I only want to make the point that the pros and cons of immigration issues are not difficult to grasp; but getting them into the public square for open, honest discussion is difficult. There are tens of millions of intelligent adults in the U.S.A., but discussion of anything to do with immigration is conducted at a moron level.

And, full disclosure: I cheated a bit there. My cut’n’paste from seventeen years ago dealt with illegal aliens—a topic that has been fairly openly discussed in respectable circles for twenty years or so—although even then, with the fair application of sensible laws pointed’n’sputtered at as “unreasonable” and “discriminatory.”

Mr. Saipov, though, entered the U.S.A. legally, via the Diversity Visa lottery. Legal immigration is still virtually un-discussable in our public square. There is almost nothing you can say about it without loss of respectability points—nothing, I mean, other than that immigration is a jolly good thing, it enriches and refreshes America, We Are A Nation Of Immigrants, and so on. Anything negative draws frowns, sneers, and accusations of bigotry.

Consider for example the suggestion that we should stop permitting Muslims to settle in the U.S.A., and ask foreign Muslims resident here to leave, with of course a decent interval to close out their affairs. We could also allow temporary exceptions for diplomatic or commercial purposes, or in the case of real, credentialed scholars, or persons who have performed dangerous and difficult services on behalf of our country, or wives and dependent children of citizens: the suggestion is that we decisively turn our faces away from entry of any other Muslims.

If you say that in the public square you are denounced for bigotry and hate; but that, like so much of our public language nowadays, is infantile. I favor the suggestion I just spelled out; but I don’t mind Muslims or Islam. I certainly don’t hate them or it.

I have argued this at length more than once. Here I was ten years ago, for example, also on National Review Online, after some exchanges with famous Islamophobe author Robert Spencer:

A fighting faith is of course a proud faith, and nothing pumps poison into the bloodstream like pride brought low. Inside every Muslim today there is a voice whispering:

“Our faith is so pure and true, our civilizations lasted so long and ruled so many, our God was so potent: yet here we are in the modern world, backward and poor except where accidents of nature have blessed us, our rulers corrupt, our culture mocked or ignored, our people squabbling among themselves, or fleeing the homelands to work as taxi drivers and menials in the great glittering cities of the infidels, those homelands themselves part-stolen by the wretched Jews. It’s all wrong, wrong, wrong! Grrrrr!!!

ORDER IT NOW

That’s the Islam we’re up against. I don’t myself believe we can do much to reform it. Muslims have to do that for themselves. Any helping hand we reach out will be spat upon. While they sort out their problems, though, I do thin k we should keep Islam at arm’s length, for our own safety. Keep ’em out; fence ’em off; send Muslim visitors home; keep a wary eye on Muslim citizens.

Leave them the consolations of their faith, though; stop trying to convince me that there is no good at all in that faith; and, if you’re the praying type, pray that the good will prevail at last.

Is that hateful? I don’t see it.

The title I gave to that piece was “Islamophobophobia.” I was expressing my mild aversion to Islamophobia, and to Islamophobes like Robert Spencer … who, by the way, I also don’t hate. He strikes me as a decent sort of chap, but with a bee in his bonnet.

Can’t we do anything about this childish usage of the word “hate”?

The policy I’m suggesting is of course discriminatory; but as I and everyone else on our side of the issue has been saying for years to anyone willing to listen, the entire point of immigration laws is to discriminate: to discriminate between people you want entering your country, and people you don’t.

Nobody thinks there are none of the latter. Even Open-Borders cranks would keep out, for example, known criminals on the run. At any rate, I assume they would. If they wouldn’t, they’re over the line from crankiness to madness.

I was arguing there—and wouldn’t retract a single word now, ten years later—that while the Islamic world is in the condition it’s in, while it’s afflicted with the common psychopathologies we see expressed in cases like Mr. Saipov, we shouldn’t give visas to any but a tiny number of Muslims.

That’s not hatred–that’s prudence. I certainly don’t hate Islam. To hate it, I’d need to have an informed opinion about it.

Robert Spencer does hate it, and does have an informed opinion. He’s read the Koran, in the original classical Arabic. Should I take him as an authority figure, and hate Islam along with him? I decline to do so, for reasons I spelled out at length when reviewing one of his books.

I decline to have an opinion about Islam. A thoughtful, responsible citizen is not obliged to have an opinion about everything. To have a properly informed opinion about Islam I’d have to read the Koran. I refuse to do so.

I have tried reading other people’s scriptures. I had a go at the Bhagavad Gita once—hoo-ee! I’ve tried the Book of Mormon, too. Sorry, and no offense to anyone—certainly not Hindus or Mormons—but life’s too short.

There is a Taoist bible, did you know that? Yes, the Taoist religion—not to be confused with Taoist philosophy, of course—the Taoist religion has a bible, the Daozang. It’s very big—fifteen hundred volumes, tens of thousands of pages. You can buy an English-language companion to it, with thumbnail descriptions of all those volumes. That companion book is a mere eighteen hundred pages long.

I have no plans to read the Taoist bible, nor even the companion book. I wouldn’t read it even if Taoists were blowing up people at marathons or pop concerts, or mowing down cyclists on bike paths. I feel no necessity to have an opinion about religious Taoism.

If Taoists were doing those horrible things, though, I would raise my voice in favor of U.S. immigration laws discriminating strongly against Taoists. Why wouldn’t I? That would just be a sensible prudence.

Not hate–prudence. They’re different things.

  1. People who hate Muslims are the Zionists who use the US and EU to wage all these Wars for Israel and globalist hegemony. But Zionists shroud their hatred for Muslims by pretending to care for ‘refugees’ and ‘immigrants’. Of course it’s the gentiles who are burdened with having to take in all these arrivals.

    Zionists hate Muslims and destroy the Muslim world but then accuse white gentiles of anti-Muslim hatred because increasing numbers of whites are saying ENOUGH with all these Muslim ‘immigrants’ and ‘refugees’. What a dirty game.

    A nation will fall without race-ism. (Race-ism meaning Belief in race as reality, racial differences, and need for ethno-racial consciousness.) Race-ism means being mindful of one’s own race, one’s own people, and one’s own nation. A people of a nation must favor their own kind and their own land. If not, others will take over, gradually if not rapidly. And the people of the nation will turn traitor(even as a sign of virtue) since anti-race-ism instilled them with a notion that they would be evil to be mindful of their own identity and interests on their own territory.

    When white nations were race-ist, whites looked out for one another. They circled the wagons and protected their own domain and heritage. But now that whites have been made anti-race-ist, they fear to assert their own identity and interests. Even the notion that “It’s Okay to be White” is denounced by white cuck elites and white progs. Without race-ism, a people inevitably turn cuck since they can no longer serve themselves. They must serve OTHERS. Those who keep their identity eventually win out over those who don’t. Since Jews, blacks, and Muslims keep their own identity, they will gain over whites in Europe and Canada.. and US.

    Also, race-ism makes a people proud and powerful. And only a proud and powerful people are respected by others. Why? Because they are feared. A people who are not feared are not respected. At most, they are pitied.
    White people were once feared and respected. But now that they are no longer feared, they are reviled. Why? Because all their past glory and all their wealth are denounced as ill-gotten, and white cucks nod along with apology.

    Because whites are denied pride, purpose(except to cuck), and unity, their power keeps fading with each passing year. Also, it is race-ism that prevents giving into temptations as all individuals are wont to do. Every individual is tempted with betrayal IF there is something for him or her. Collaborate with the enemy to get something for ‘me’. It’s like Fredo betraying the family in THE GODFATHER II to have something for himself. Without a strong sense of race-ism, so many people will betray their own people or collaborate with the enemy for self-gain, pleasure, thrills, or ‘narcissism of small differences’.
    Why did Jews remain Jewish even though they were tempted by betrayal all through the ages. The Covenant was race-ist in reminding Jews over and over that they must stick together, preserve identity, and put their own kind first. So, even as Jews-as-individuals were tempted to betray their own kind for self-gain, enough of them didn’t because Jewish race-ism emphasized group identity, unity, and purpose. Without such race-ist pressures, Jews would have betrayed their own kind as individuals and turned collaborator and faded as an ethnic identity.

    Patriarchy is also necessary for preservation of identity. Women are likely to just run off with OTHER groups that are more powerful. And young ones are restless and wanna try something ‘new’. This makes them more likely to go over to the other side, if only for excitement.
    Patriarchy imposes tribal elder male power over womenfolk and young ones. Jewish Patriarchy was instrumental in keeping the Tribe together. As Jews were often a weaker group vis-a-vis other groups, many Jewish women naturally wanted to run off with more powerful goy men. But Jewish patriarchs forbade this, and so, Jewish women had kids with Jewish men. Also, Jewish fathers made their Jewish sons stick to Jewish identity.
    Though Jews still have their race-ism and identity, the ebbing of Jewish patriarchy may prove to be fatal. Without patriarchal control over Jewish women, many are just turning slut, crazy, or jungle fever. So many Jewish women are turning out like Lena Dunham and Emma Sulkowicz. With crazy Jewesses like that, more Jewish men will marry Chinese women, and their Chewish kids will have that lame yellow gene and lack chutzpah. Also, without patriarchal power over Jewish boys, too many Jewish men are turning Animal House and making total fools of themselves like Anthony Weiner and Harvey Weinstein. Also, they marry shikses who either turn out to be bimbos(thus lowering Jewish IQ) or careerist & castrating harridans.
    In PORTNOY’S COMPLAINT, we are told of a cousin who wanted to go with a shiksa but the Father said NO, so, the cousin went nuts and smashed all the bottles or something. And then the father beat the crap out of him, but the cousin just took it and didn’t fight back even though he was much stronger than his pa. Patriarchy was still operative. Ultimately, the authority of the father kept the kid within the Jewish community.

    But with the fading of Jewish patriarchy, too many Jewish kids grew up with endless porny jokes about dongs and schwarz, and they ended up ridiculous. Israel still has patriarchy, and thank heaven for that. With so many Israeli Jews being decadent, the society will go nuts if there isn’t some kind of patriarchy to keep things under wraps. Consider that 70% of Israelis are for ‘gay marriage’, but it is banned by the patriarchy.

    In the West, the loss of race-ism has meant loss of white identity, pride, and purpose. So, even though whites still got money and status, they got no respect, and so, non-whites berate and demean them. Also, so many whites turn on their own kind and join with enemies of whites(esp blacks). This means white people will become weaker every year in demographic, political, social, and economic terms.

    It is no wonder that the fading of white race-ism is leading to the rise of Jungle and Jihad.
    Loss of white race-ism means that white men aren’t allowed to unite to defend white manhood and white pride. In the past, white men did just that. When faced with Zulu savages, white men all worked together to fight them like in the Michael Caine movie. And in the American South, white men united against black crime. Since a Negro could whup a whitey on a one-on-one basis, whites had to work together to catch the black thug rapist and hang him from a tree to send a message to other would-be-Negro thugs. Also, white race-ism kept Jungle Fever under control. Since white men worked together to keep the power and maintain racial pride, white women respected white men and had children with them. Also, as any white woman who went with a Negro was castigated or even criminalized, white womenfolk weren’t likely to betray their own race.

    But no more white race-ism means that white men must NEVER work together against blacks. But without group effort, white men cannot win against black men. On one-on-one basis, most black guys can kick white guys in the butt. Also, without white male pride and power over their women, white women are realizing that black men got more muscle, bigger dongs, and louder voices. So, with each passing year, many more white women give their wombs over to Negroes to be colonized. Worse, the Official Power encourages and promotes such Jungle Fever among white women and cuck behavior among white men. Notice that there is no cultural condemnation of cuck behavior. It’s just reported as some new social trend, like it’s cool or something.
    Blacks now sense white wussy and white pu**y. They see that whites are now addicted to jungle music and jungle power. Without white race-ism, white civilization loses out to the animal aggression and lust of Negro culture that offers thrills of domination, thug power, and funkiness.

    With the rise of such savagery, one would think there would be a moral and spiritual backlash. But due to demise of white race-ism, whites are loathe to invoke God and Jesus and social responsibility to denounce black savagery. If anything, even Christianity has cucked out to homos. A truly sad state of affairs.

    However, when a society is overcome with so much degeneracy and debauchery, the reaction must come from somewhere. Since it cannot come from whites, it is coming from the Muslims who are filling up parts of Europe and even Canada and the US. Since Christianity cannot do anything other than shill for Israel and worship homos and since white morality can only be about ‘white guilt’, the pride of morality can only come from non-white cultures. And it is Islam.

    So, it is Islam that is stepping in to denounce and destroy the debauchery. So, while Ariana Grande sings about how her mudshark white pooter is stretched out by black dongs, Muslim terrorist blows up her concert as an act of war against modern decadence and degeneracy. Barbarism of Islamic Morality wages war on Savagery of African Jivery. But instead of Muslims fighting Africans, both wage war on weak white decadence. Blacks wage war on whites by wussifying white boys and colonizing white wombs. Black guys beat white guys in sports and in the streets and turn white men into scared wussy white boys who turn white-uncle-tom and cuck out. And white girls offer their wombs to be colonized by black seed, and this is promoted by both the state and entertainment all across Europe and America. So, blacks wage sports and sexual war on whites.

    As white nations become culturally junglized, Muslims attack this degenerate white society as the ‘sick west’. Muslims find the modern West to be utterly vile and debauched, but they fail to realize that black influence(as esp enabled by Jewish power) played a huge role in turning the West into a cesspool of neo-savagery. The Great Reversion of blacks to savagery has impacted all the West. So many white elites listen to reggae as their main music, and so many ‘white trash’ masses(and white middle class) are into rap thug music.

    So, blacks junglize whites, and Muslims denounce and attack a junglized white world.

    Now, if whites had race-ism, they would have united to keep blacks in their world. And as they would be a powerful and proud people, Muslims would respect them and think twice about waging terror attacks on them. But whites seem weak to both groups.

    Though blacks and Muslims couch their condemnation of whites in PC terms of ‘injustice’, what they really mean is ‘you weak’. Blacks don’t get morality. Blacks only understand power. They fear and respect Power. When they see weakness(no matter how good-willed and redemptive), they see it as pu**y. It’s like hyenas respect powerful lions. But if a wounded lion went to them and begged forgiveness for all the hyenas it killed in the past, the hyenas would just laugh and say ‘you weak’ and tear him limb from limb. This is why ‘white guilt’ won’t work. Black mentality only respects power. Blacks respected the old KKK more than today’s goody whites. KKK was fearsome. Blacks hated it but feared it and with fear came respeck, shoo. But no matter how nice whites today try to be, blacks just see weakness. When blacks scream and shout slogans about civil rights, they really mean ‘you weak!’
    And Muslims, despite their spirituality, are also into power. Islam is about justice and POWER. Muhammad was a warrior, and there can be no justice without power. So, when whites act nice and apologetic, Muslims just see weakness. They feel that such wussy pu**y people don’t deserve to rule or own anything.

    Unless whites being back race-ism, they are done for. Year after year, they will lose more and more.

  2. but I don’t mind Muslims or Islam.

    Well, it’s easy not to mind it when it’s thousands of miles away. Then you can pretend it’s all about romantic oases, genies in bottles and magic carpets.

    But when you find yourself surrounded by these culturally hostile bastards, it’s rather difficult to not mind it.

    Personally, I don’t mind confessing that I hate Islam, the religion. I can see nothing admirable or worth emulating in it. It’s a scourge on humanity. I don’t think you can find a more oppressive social force on the planet today. I’d certainly far prefer to live under a SJW tyranny than in a state like Saudi Arabia or Iran, any day.

    Hating Muslims themselves is more difficult. There are certainly times when I do hate them, but it’s not a constant feeling. And then I feel somewhat guilty when I calm down and remind myself that they’re people too, and it’s not really their fault for being raised in that faith, and most of the time they’re not that bad, and the ones who are racially closer to home – Bosnians, Albanians, even Turks – I often tend to like rather than dislike. (It’s mostly the accursed Arabs who tick me off, the way they congregate in large numbers in nightspots I like to frequent, looking for the slightest excuse to provoke a fight. But perhaps even this is only a temporary phase. From my own experience, they’re not as bad as they were twenty years ago.)

    I decline to have an opinion about Islam. A thoughtful, responsible citizen is not obliged to have an opinion about everything. To have a properly informed opinion about Islam I’d have to read the Koran. I refuse to do so.

    Come off it. You surely know enough to justify having an opinion.

    Also, this sort of thinking provides an opening for multiculturalists to claim that anyone with a negative opinion about Islam doesn’t yet know enough about it to have an opinion. Then no matter how much you study it, as long as your opinion remains negative, they’ll always respond that you still have more to learn; that when you “truly” understand it, you’ll come to appreciate it. That’s a mug’s game.

    All this said, I’m not sure Robert Spencer’s relentless attacks are the way to go. I think that just causes Muslims to dig their heels in even more. It’s better to criticize them, but also leave them a dignified way out.

    Now you’re getting at one of the foundational lies of the liberal dogmas of political correctness – the dishonest and intentionally smearing conflation of disapproval or dislike with “hatred”, and all that follows on from that.

    It can be found wherever the liars of political correctness gather:

    Don’t approve of the normalisation of homosexual behaviour? You “hate” homosexuals. You’re a “homophobe”.

    Recognise that jewish people have collective interests upon which their lobbies act, that they have disproportionate influence in the societies of the modern US sphere, and that their culture is inherently foreign to the basically Christian cultures of the US, UK and Europe? You “hate” jews. You’re an “antisemite”.

    Don’t think blacks are collectively identical to whites (except where they’re better on average, of course), and that everything and everything bad that happens to blacks and every bad feature of black cultures is due to historic and current white racism? Don’t think that more blacks is automatically an improvement, anywhere and everywhere? Then you “hate” blacks. You’re a “racist”.

    Don’t think women are collectively identical to men (except where they’re better on average, of course), and that everything and everything bad that happens to women and every drawback of femaleness is due to historic and current sexism? Don’t think that more women and more power for women is automatically an improvement, anywhere and everywhere? Then you “hate” women. You’re a “misogynist”.

    Recognise that islam is foreign to the basically Christian cultures of the US, UK and Europe, or that there are downsides to Islamic culture and mass muslim immigration? Then you “hate” islam and muslims. You’re an islamophobe.

    This is one of the core dysfunctions of modern US sphere cultures, and if left unchallenged for much longer it will keep enabling the radicalisation of minority groups and rationalisation of their aggressive violence and thuggery, and the suppression of necessary dissent against globalisation and against unchecked minority lobby power. Ultimately it will leave only revolution and civil war as possible alternatives to the defeat of liberty and of national survival.

    The question I ask is “what’s in it for us”? Why bring them into our societies, they hate us, most have a low IQ, they pray 5 times a day, [do you suppose that's not gonna throw a wrench in the capitalist day] they breed like rats, they cover their faces, they don’t integrate with other groups. Near as I can see the only thing they make is more Muslims, why do it? Let them live in their own countries and leave them alone, we don’t need them and they certainly don’t like us.

  5. I don’t hate Moslems, but I am realistic about how many of them hate me.

    Your list of acceptable Moslems was pretty good. I’d reduce the list by one. The West really has no need for more real or credentialed scholars. We are already heavy laden with persons devoted to books and tax-supported stipends.

    Islam is a triumphal religion. Adherents believe they’re destined to take over the world by any means necessary. That makes Islam inherently violent, even if some individual Moslems are at peace.

    Odd political footnote: Bobby Jindal, the former governor of Louisiana and unsuccessful POTUS candidate, noted that many Moslems have “come here to conquer us.” What a pleasant surprise for a politician to say something so bluntly honest. I don’t advocate reading the whole Tao bible. But we should, like Jindal, know enough to know who’s coming here to conquer us. And then we should say it out loud. Google the string, “bobby jindal Muslims conquer” and you’ll find tons of hits.

  6. Nice work, Derbs. But my impression has been, for twenty years now, since Ok City, that no matter how you slice it, from now on, every now and then, we’re gonna have to take a beatin’. They’re here now. Catch the ones you can and accept that once in awhile, NYC happens. Paris happens, Las Vegas happens. With that knowledge in hand, get out of the M.East, let China handle the Norks, express deterrence toward Russia, China and Iran for the behavior of their client-Norks and leave the Pacific.

    Every other path, doom.

    @Randal

    randal, agree 100%.

    Modern political rhetoric pretty much destroys nuanced patterns of thought and feeling that, I used to think, were the hallmark of reasonably educated people. Good grief!–what’s the point of education if it isn’t to cultivate a capacity to discern distinctions that make a difference?

    I’ve used the expression “cordial but wary” to describe the relations between Blacks and Whites in my northern (USA) industrial city before the tsunami of civil rights legislation. I’d fully expect that phrase would be regarded as “code” of some sort, and I’d be instantly dismissed as a “hater” who wants to “turn the clock back” if I were to use that phrase publicly.

  8. unit472 says:

    I think immigration should be handled in a manner similar to how nations deal with trade in goods and services. The US might allow free immigration with Japan, the EU even Mexico and China if those nations allow Americans equal access, including property rights, to their territory. I would have no objection if, e.g. Mexico or Japan, denied residency to American paupers or drug addicts just as we could deny residency to a Mexican derelict or criminal but if Juan wants to come to Texas buy property or open a business fine just as long as John from Texas can do the same in Mexico City.

    Reciprocity is the key here. If China wants any American moving to China to meet some educational or financial threshold fine but we can apply that same threshold to their nationals seeking to move to the US. Once that threshold is met then the immigrant would have the same legal and economic rights as anyone else in either country.

  9. Talha says:

    Wow – pretty balanced article on the whole.

    “It’s all wrong, wrong, wrong! Grrrrr!!!” That’s the Islam we’re up against.

    Bingo! That is the version Islam that is causing the problem. The one that is too spiritually immature to recognize that God grants worldly success to various people at various times throughout history, the one that doesn’t recognize that sometimes poverty is better than wealth, that being oppressed is always, always preferable to being on top if you’re just going to become the oppressor, that it might actually be a good thing to be left in the dust by post-modernity as it speeds along the tracks not thinking the bridge is out ahead*.

    That’s the Islam we’re up against (including Muslims actually, they’re butchering us left and right as well since we won’t get with their program). Missing one thing though that Mr. Dersbyshire always seems to suffer from which his lack of acknowledgment of the massive part played by foreign policies that have laid to waste a good amount of the ME and caused such tremendous population movement.

    Is that hateful? I don’t see it.

    Neither do I.

    He’s read the Koran, in the original classical Arabic.

    Mr. Spencer can neither read nor speak Arabic – to his credit, he has never claimed to be able to.

    I decline to have an opinion about Islam.

    OK – that seems a bit weird, but OK. One doesn’t have to read Spencer’s works – plenty of stuff out there from academic sources.

    we shouldn’t give visas to any but a tiny number of Muslims

    Seems reasonable; after all every country has a right to set policies who gains entry. Plenty would discriminate against letting in people of 70+ years to permanently settle since they are a drain on financial and medical resources. That doesn’t mean they hate the elderly (I mean, maybe they do, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that).

    A thought occurred to me; this seems like a reasonable approach to the subject and has potential to gain wider audience. The Spencer approach (which is tied to Israeli-firster organizations) tends to push the discussion into the unreasonable camp that can distract from the serious discussion about immigration. People in the center may not want to be associated with more extreme views. If it is the case that this is one of the intents behind the work that Mr. Spencer is doing – then it is an impressive feat of the Israeli-firster crowd to control and distract the windows of discussion on the parameters of both invade and invite.

    Well, no need to speculate about the answer, as he recently freely provided it to us.

    Here’s an excerpt from Wrestling with Derbyshire’s Law, a dialogue with Joey Kurtzman:

    Yes, indeed I was, and am, “afraid of offending Jews.” Of course I am! For a person like myself, a Gentile who is a very minor name in American opinion journalism, desirous of ascending to some slightly less minor status, ticking off Jews is a very, very bad career strategy.

    Thanks Geo – this would certainly explain why he is willing to talk about the “invite” portion of the “invade + invite” conundrum.

    He understands that – hmmm, what’s the best way to put this – someone else has him by the balls.

    I have to admit though, I was rather impressed that he doesn’t just simply support the Spencer nonsense. So it seems to me he that knows that kind of gutter discourse is intellectually beneath him, so it makes sense to me that an intelligent man like him would obviously get the “invade” part of the equation.

    But he simply can’t speak about it, because – well – someone will start squeezing and it’ll hurt*. He saw what happened to a long-standing figure like Ms. Helen Thomas for expressing her frank views.

    Good catch, appropriate. Tally it all up, the Jews have done thousands of times more damage here in the States than Muslims ever did. Meh, as the spread of racist, feminist liberalism spreads like a shit-stain across the land, campus and governments, I’m almost to a point where I don’t argue against how Muslims handle THEIR women to liberals anymore. Jews and Muslims are here, protect yourself best you can, forget ever catching them before they pull a bullshit stunt.. Mostly, you have to worry most about, apparently, the Jewish men and Muslims (and the Hollywood celebrities who defend them) raping your daughters and sons. Other than that, Jews and Muslims are just swell, the more the merrier..

    Kipling’s “The Stranger”

    [MORE]

    The Stranger within my gate,
    He may be true or kind,
    But he does not talk my talk–
    I cannot feel his mind.
    I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
    But not the soul behind.

    The men of my own stock,
    They may do ill or well,
    But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
    They are used to the lies I tell;
    And we do not need interpreters
    When we go to buy or sell.

    The Stranger within my gates,
    He may be evil or good,
    But I cannot tell what powers control–
    What reasons sway his mood;
    Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
    Shall repossess his blood.

    The men of my own stock,
    Bitter bad they may be,
    But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
    And see the things I see;
    And whatever I think of them and their likes
    They think of the likes of me.

    This was my father’s belief
    And this is also mine:
    Let the corn be all one sheaf–
    And the grapes be all one vine,
    Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
    By bitter bread and wine.

    My thinking is my thinking. But they’ve gone far too many bridges too far in ways they never did. I don’t think of Israel the same the last couple of years that I used to, but the Jewish domestic product in media, government and academia was always bent out of shape here. The two of them hand-in-hand recently however aren’t to skew Israel’s survival but rather to tip the scale in terms of greed and corruption of contractors and their many members on boards and stockholders. And we know who THOSE folks are now, don’t we? Their meddling in Syria likewise, including the insistence the past year that we involve ourselves in the mess in Syria to begin with are another tell..

    Harvey and all his domestic partners in the Democrat Party, plus the Israeli influence on an allegedly American citizen such as Harvey don’t help. Plus, with perverts like Woody, Weiner, EpStein, there are lots and lots of them out of the woodwork now, it’s clearly a depraved and indifferent crowd. Their behavior has certainly “evolved” the past umpteen months, and hence, my opinions. They don’t help themselves when they scurry to their rat holes while their religious brethren rape and pillage their waya through our institutions.

    Do you have evidence for this?

    You mean proving a negative – like they asked Saddam to do? I’ll do you one better; find proof that Mr. Spencer can read and understand classical Arabic (and no I don’t mean look up words in a translation dictionary – that would mean I can read and understand German and Greek) and I will personally send him an apology email and refrain from criticizing him here again.

    The man has:
    1) Published a book questioning the existence of the Prophet (pbuh) – something that is laughable in academic circles.
    2) Puts quotes around Palestinians:

    https://mobile.twitter.com/jihadwatchRS/status/823650702325088256

    3) Makes basic errors such as he can’t figure out when a “maa” is being used preposition for negation or as an interrogative noun in a sentence. States that the word “dhimma” means “blameworthy” – something not found in any of the three major Arabic lexicons I use. You can look it up yourself – download “Arabic Almanac” on iOS (specifically the three from Hans Wehr, Penrice, Lane). It is related to the root for “to blame”, but the word “dhimma” means a treaty or covenant, the breaking of which entails blame. The word he is trying to conflate the meaning with is the word “dhameem”. This is basic stuff – he is either making unprofessional mistakes that are laughable or he is lying – your pick.

    Again – I gave him credit for not ever stating that he knows and understands Arabic. He sometimes leads people on with certain statements to inflate what he knows, but I’ve never seen him come out and state he knows Arabic beyond the few phrases and words he concentrates on.

    Now, that doesn’t mean you can’t criticize Islam without knowing Arabic – that would be silly. I was just saying that others have made the claim that the man has read the Qur’an in classical Arabic – not the man himself.

    Luckily they seem to be losing at present, though it’s a real pity all the damage they’ve managed to do.

    Agreed – I think it is curtains for this particular strain, though its embers still seem to be burning here and there. One of the best things to come out of this is that even the Wahabbi scholars are now questioning their own tradition since they know these offshoots are coming out of their particular “brand”.

    If you want to have a very serious read on it, this trend was spotted by the late Shaykh Albani (ra) who is a figure that was respected (even in disagreement) by a large number of non-Salafi-Wahhabi Sunnis – well in the nineties:

    Why does Derbyshire think he does?

    Bro, I wish I knew.

    I’ll throw you a freebie to show you what I’m talking about. So I came across this article where he is talking about the “verse of the sword” (9:5):

    http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/262306/muslim-offers-10000-anyone-who-can-show-quran-robert-spencer

    He goes through his whole spiel for a bit giving his opinion on this and that which I simply ignore – because, really no Muslim cares what he says. But then the first Muslim scholar he actually is cites Imam Ibn Juzayy (ra), by stating:

    On the contrary, Ibn Juzayy notes that it cancels out peaceful verses; he says that it abrogates “every peace treaty in the Qur’an,” and specifically abrogates the Qur’an’s directive to “set free or ransom” captive unbelievers (47:4).

    But that’s silly – here is Imam Juzayy’s commentary on the verse, right here:

    http://altafsir.com/Tafasir.asp?tMadhNo=2&tTafsirNo=15&tSoraNo=9&tAyahNo=5&tDisplay=yes&UserProfile=0&LanguageId=1

    The part about the “every peace treaty in the Quran” is completely absent. Now I even looked ahead a few verses and back a few. There is a comment later on talking about how a portion of this verse cancels the Treaty of Hudaybiah. Now the thing is, Imam Juzayy (ra) was an Andalusian Maliki scholar and his exact words are:
    فاقتلوا المشركين } أي: مَن لم يكن له عهد}
    “{Kill the polytheists} – Meaning: The one for whom there is no pact”

    It is literally the opposite of what he is saying it says!

    Then this thing about abrogating “setting free or ransoming”. Now it does actually mention that, but what he leaves out is the entire discussion Imam Juzayy (ra) is making clear. It starts at the bottom where he mentions:
    واختلف علماء الناسخ والمنسوخ في هذه الآية على ثلاثة أقوال

    “And there is a difference of opinion among the scholars on the abrogating and abrogated in this verse upon three opinions”

    And then Imam Juzayy (ra) outlines the three:
    1) That this verse is actually abrogated by the directive in 47:4 to set prisoners free or ransom them (which means killing them is impermissible) – and he notes who held this opinion (Imams Hasan al-Basri [ra] and ‘Ata [ra])
    2) The opposite of this – that the imperative to set prisoners free or ransom them is abrogated (meaning you have no choice but to execute them) – and he notes, this opinion was held by Imams Mujahid [ra] and Qataadah [ra] – so, yes, this is actually in the text – no doubt about this
    3) That both verses are in effect and that the leadership has the option to set free, ransom or execute based on what they deem the best decision based on circumstance – and he says (وعليه عامة الفقهاء) “and upon this is the mass of the jurists”

    This is not the first time I’ve seen the man try to pull a fast one. Sure ignorant people are fooled by his shenanigans, and that’s fine. They have every right to support him and pay for his snake oil just as much as hiring an idiot mechanic.

    I don’t know if anybody takes him seriously in academic circles – I mean, he would get ripped apart in peer review.

    In reality, I do not fabricate quotes or references. You’re looking at the wrong source, a source I did not cite. Here is the source for my quotation that Ibn Juzayy says that Qur’an 9:5 is “abrogating every peace treaty in the Qur’an”:

    https://bewley.virtualave.net/tawba1.html

    Ibn Juzayy on 9:5: “(kill the mushrikun wherever you find them) Abrogating every peace treaty in the QurÕan. It is said that it abrogates, “by setting them free or ransom.” (47:4) It is also said that it is abrogated by it and so setting them free and ransom are permitted. (seize them) means to capture, and the one taken is the captive.”

    Hey Mr. Spencer,

    You’re looking at the wrong source, a source I did not cite.

    I’m looking at the very source – that is the source text for Ibn Juzayy’s tafsir – it’s all there in the original Arabic.

    Ms. Bewley is an absolute master translator – I have her translation of the Shifaa of Qadi Iyad (ra). I’m glad you cited her – I would recommend her work to everyone. I’m not sure what she is doing on this particular passage, but it is obvious she is not doing a word-for-word translation; she seems to be summarizing.

    So for instance, you left out the crucial part Ms. Bewley adds, which is that “it is also said that it (9:5) is abrogated by it (47:4) and so setting them free and ransom are permitted“. So why are you telling only part of the story? I mean, I gave a translation of all three viewpoints Ibn Juzayy (ra) outlines and I admitted that you accurately depicted the second opinion – and only that one. Why are you only partially quoting your own source? Furthermore, look at the third point Imam Ibn Juzayy (ra) points out in his tafsir – he makes it plain what the majority of the scholars have decided on.

    I have to admit, I am a bit surprised that Ms. Bewley didn’t report the whole text. But in essence, I agree with her and this is the opinion of the majority of the Maliki school that these verses refer to the pagan Quraysh and the treaties with them are done with (after a certain time) – the differences on which tribes it is talking about are also outlined by Imam Ibn Juzayy (ra) right here:

    http://altafsir.com/Tafasir.asp?tMadhNo=2&tTafsirNo=15&tSoraNo=9&tAyahNo=7&tDisplay=yes&UserProfile=0&LanguageId=1

    Bani Damrah or Quraysh or Khuza’ah

    The Hanafi opinion is that these only refer to the pagans of the Arabian peninsula from the original Arab tribes.

    The Shafi’i opinion is well known and is as you stated from Imam Suyuti (ra) – it refers to polytheists everywhere.

    All of these can be referenced by either the works of “takhsees” or “tarjeeh” from the various schools – like commentaries by Imams Sarakhsi, Nawawi, Ibn Ishaq al-Jundi (ra).

    What you want to do is make it look like to people that the Shafi’i opinion is the opinion of Islam instead of the fact that it is a minority opinion and that historically the majority of Muslim sovereigns have run their lands (and foreign policies) by the Hanafi and Maliki schools of law – Abbasid, Ummayyad, Ottoman, Mughal, even lesser known ones like Sokoto). Furthermore, name me a single living Shafi’i scholar in our time that says we should run things like this. Because, at the end of the day, you can write as many books as you want – but where the rubber meets the road, it’s the men with the beards and turbans that have studied this tradition for well over 5 decades that the Muslims listen to.

    What you want to do is cite our scholars when it agrees with what you want (you have to of course, it’s not like you can magically derive the rules or opinions of abrogation out of thin air) – but you want to ignore their writings when they disagree with you. Your are in an epistemological bind and have to hope your audience is too ignorant to be able to discern.

    Now you made an excellent point in the article, which was:
    “but I wonder how you would explain to a young member of the Islamic State (ISIS) or al-Qaeda that Allah’s command to strike terror into the enemy of Allah doesn’t mean that they should behead, or blow up, or otherwise terrorize unbelievers”

    Congratulations – that is the problem right there. Both you and the foolish young men of Daesh think they can simply bypass our scholars and derive rules all by themselves by looking at the source texts. As long as this mentality exists among our youth, this will continue to happen – as Prof. David Cook (who does know and translates Arabic texts) explained (listen for 5 minutes):

    So why don’t you advise, like Prof. Cook does, that the best way to make sure someone doesn’t become a radical is by learning traditional Islam at the feet of traditional scholars? When’s the last time, say, a young student of the Maliki school and adherent of the Shadili Order blew himself up on a bus or plane or subway? Thought so.

    And as did Prof. Bernard Lewis:
    “The various types of action which we call terrorism are not only not encouraged, they are expressly forbidden by Shariah, by the Muslim holy law.”

    Saying “Allahu Akbar” before running over grandmothers is as valid as saying it before downing some vodka.

    Who can remain objective about the tradition, even though he considers too much Muslim immigration to be an existential crisis for the West:

    And then you state in your article that Imam Ibn Kathir (ra) says “slay the unbelievers wherever you find them”, but it is obvious from the Arabic and even and English translation that this doesn’t refer to unbelievers in general, but polytheists – I can’t think of a single scholar that believes that – where did you get that quote from?:

    http://www.qtafsir.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2581&Itemid=64

    One thing, again, Ms. Bewley’s is an English translation (and apparently summary) – you seem to be stuck in sourcing translated works like Shaykh Nuh’s “Reliance” and such. The site I have made reference to has nearly a hundred various tafsirs in their original Arabic and include some of the most reliable ones from men like Imams Bazdawi, Qurtubi (ra), etc.

    So tell us – have you ever passed a formal class in classical Arabic? Just so we can put this all to rest. Again, you can criticize Islam without it – I have no problems with this, but let’s get this out on the table.

    I stand by the accuracy of my work.

    I’m sure you do – you get paid well by Israeli-firster organizations. Now, that’s not to say you don’t get it right once in a while – you do. You usually just never present the whole picture – which is how people who don’t know better buy your stuff.

    kindly post them here or email me

    I’d think of emailing you if I thought it would make a difference. This is your bread and butter, sir – I hardly think you are going to change your tune. Your livelihood depends on you churning out the goods – I do this in my spare time since I manage an IT team.

    Look, both of us are biased when it comes to this material – let’s just be out and open about it. I am a traditional practicing Sunni Muslim that has studied with multiple Hanafi muftis and you are a researcher that gets paid (well, I might add*) by Israeli-firster organizations to run character assassinations on a religion so that they can get the upper hand over the “Palestinians” (as you like to call them) and help turn US policy into a platform for Neocon interests.

    As far as posting on your site – no thanks – that’s your home court advantage. I’ve seen what happens to Muslims who post there – they get drowned out by tsunamis of “taqiyyah”.

    I’m here posting at UNZ, you know where to find me. A word of caution though – bring up your love for Israel here at your own peril.

    Peace may God guide you and yours and keep you in safety in this life and the next.

    So the match doesn’t really make sense in a Venn diagram sort of way; it’s like asking Catholics vs those who eat hamburgers.

    Honestly, Whites ran the Muslim world fairly efficiently for a good long time. Many of the Ottoman elite and definitely sultans were successively children of concubines from White populations (Polish, Venetian, etc.). At a certain point they were basically around 90% or more White. And the Bosnians supplied a lot of the officer and front line cadres for the defense of places like the Levant.

    People (not you) keep on bringing up Whites vs Muslims – and I’m like; Dude, we don’t care – stop projecting your issues on us!

    By the way, one of the best articles written by an African American scholar (Shaykh Abdullah Ali) that came to the defense of Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, when he made a provocative statement regarding BLM and the SJW/Liberal Muslims pounced on him – some highlights:
    “Can a White Man Be Proud of His People?

    Another area of concern related to Muslim activists is the push for cultural Marxist egalitarianism. It is not that one should be opposed to equal opportunity for all members of society. It is just that Islam promotes meritocracy rather than “sameness” and “equal representation” for the sake of equal “representation.” According to this cultural paradigm, it is “good” to celebrate and take pride in what is unique about one’s own culture. This seems the case, at least, for any person who is not “white.” White people, on the other hand, due to their historical domination of others are forbidden from publicly expressing pride about European civilizational contributions lest they be declared a racist or white supremacist. This concern is shared by nativists like Richard Spencer. But Spencer, however, regurgitates the pseudoscientific racist assumptions of the 19th century French aristocrat Arthur De Gobineau who pioneered the Aryan master race theory. Those blinkered notions aside, what legitimate wrong could be claimed about a white man or woman feeling pride about the achievements of their ancestors if it does not result in cultural domination?

    Talha:

    So in your very lengthy reply, you grant that my citation was accurate, but claim that it was inaccurately accurate, or some such. Your claim that my quotation was partial is refuted by the fact that I discuss 47:4 at length here (and elsewhere) in all its particulars:

    https://www.jihadwatch.org/2008/09/blogging-the-quran-suras-47-muhammad-and-48-victory

    I’m quite familiar with altafsir.com and used its material extensively in compiling my “Blogging the Qur’an” series as well as my book, The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran, as even a cursory look at either or both of them will attest. I highly doubt you have read even a page of either one, or of any of my other books.

    Your claim that I have ever represented Ibn Juzayy’s statement or anything else as what all Muslims believe is false. I have never made any such claim, and I challenge you to substantiate your assertion that I have.

    In any case, you falsely accuse me of misquoting and misrepresenting material, and when you were exposed as making a false claim, you grant that what I wrote was accurate, and then batter us with windy off-point material and videos of Bernard Lewis. That’s all very well, but I must confess I’m rather busy.

    Again: I stand by the accuracy of my work. And again, despite your false claims that I will not do so, if you can point out anything false in anything I have written, I will examine it, and retract it if it is shown to be false. The falsity of your previous claim about my citation, however, does not exactly inspire confidence that you know the first foggiest thing about my work.

    Hey Mr. Spencer,

    This is all fine. Look – we are presenting our sides for the audience at large here. You are not going to find succor in an ignorant audience of Evangelicals that clap for your claims here.

    I highly doubt you have read even a page of either one, or of any of my other books.

    I haven’t – I avoid propaganda. I also haven’t read Mein Kampf or the Protocols of the Elders of Zion or… I like to stick to academic works like those of men like Rudolph Peters, Olivier Roy, Majid Khadduri, Robert Hoyland, etc. People who get published at Princeton, Cambridge, etc. Not “Bombadier Books” who publish the likes of frauds like Kamal Saleem:

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/03/kamal-saleem-former-terrorist-islamophobia/

    Seriously, you must have been a bit embarrassed to publish a book questioning the historic figure of the Prophet (pbuh) right? Please at least admit that. I mean, if I even wrote an article about Elvis being alive, I’d hang my head in shame if someone brought it up.’

    I have never made any such claim

    OK – I’ll take your word for that – and will retract this assertion. So we both agree that Islam can hardly be pinned to minority opinions as being the Islamic stance on something, right? Will you admit that for something to be claimed as “Islam” it should at least have a consensus opinion or a super majority behind it? If so, then you already know that the killing of women and children (even on the battlefield) has been prohibited by consensus – it is backed by hadith that reach a tawatur status. You know this, right? And you know that no school says it’s OK to be treacherous to a security agreement once a Muslim enters or resides in non-Muslim lands and harm them.

    So if people like Daesh want to break with 14 centuries of consensus, how is that any more legitimate than Muslims breaking from 14 centuries of consensus on drinking wine? It’s a simple question.

    Now, if you want to make the case that Muslim extremist groups can legitimately break with consensus and still be considered normative, then I suggest you hold a joint conference with them in what’s left of Mosul or Raqqa.

    Oh – oops! Looks like they’re killing their own “scholars” that disagree with them:
    “The dispute concerns the group’s position on takfir, or excommunication—namely, the excommunication of fellow Muslims—and al-Bin‘ali was on the losing side. On May 17, 2017, the Islamic State’s Delegated Committee, its executive council, issued a memorandum setting out the official stance on takfir, and for al-Bin‘ali it was too extreme. Two days later, he refuted the memorandum in a letter to the Delegated Committee, and twelve days after that, he was killed. More such refutations by Islamic State scholars followed, and in at least one other case the result—death by airstrike—was the same…The latter was waging war on “the scholars,” which was to say al-Bin‘ali and his allies. Al-Bin‘ali’s death, he muses, was no accident: al-Bin‘ali and the other scholars who opposed the memorandum were arranged to die in airstrikes, their coordinates being leaked to “the crusaders.””

    http://www.jihadica.com/caliphate-in-disarray/

    Better hurry! Man, this really sucks for your narrative though, right? I mean, once Daesh is gone (fought and defeated by other Muslims), there goes a massive part of your story. And sucks for Israel too:
    “Ya’alon: I would prefer Islamic State to Iran in Syria”

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/yaalon-i-would-prefer-islamic-state-to-iran-in-syria/

    you falsely accuse me of misquoting and misrepresenting material

    You completely misrepresented it – and I showed everyone that you did not mention the second important portion of what Ms. Bewley wrote. The record is here for everyone to see. And again, where did you get that quotation from Imam Ibn Kathir (ra) using the word “unbelievers” instead of “polytheists/pagans”? I’ll retract this assertion too if you provide proof. Either way, if you use altafsir.com than you have the source text – there is no excuse:
    وقوله { فَٱقْتُلُواْ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ } أي من الأرض، وهذا عام

    http://altafsir.com/Tafasir.asp?tMadhNo=1&tTafsirNo=7&tSoraNo=9&tAyahNo=5&tDisplay=yes&UserProfile=0&LanguageId=1

    He leaves the term as is; “mushrikeen” and proceeds to mention (since he is a Shafi’i) “meaning; in/from the world, and this is general (ie. not restricted)”. He never turns around and replaces the word with “kafireen”.

    So will you make a change to your article? Will you stop telling people it says “unbelievers”? Thought so.

    I must confess I’m rather busy.

    Same here – I’ve got four kids to raise for the demographic jihad. Takes time and patience to practice my mad taqiyyah skillz. That’s why I stick to academic works that have been peer reviewed.

    I stand by the accuracy of my work.

    That’s cool – I like my dad better than your dad. How exactly am I supposed to respond to this?

    You still have not stated clearly, do you or do you not understand and read Arabic at a fluent level – have you ever taken a formal class on it? This should take ten seconds to answer.

    Read through that blog post of yours. Much better, far more accurate than that other article. So this is good, this is the kind of thing you should write more of. And since you are capable of it, why do you resort to the other silliness?

    You may want to mention that indeed people like Daesh and al-Qaeda execute prisoners of war in contravention of international norms. The other Muslim countries are signatories to these agreements and are morally obligated to uphold them by the Shariah; thus the option of killing of war captives is interdicted. If Western countries start to return to the days when they executed war captives then, of course, Muslim nations will have no reason to abide by this restriction other than at their own discretion. It is in the interests of all involved that we make sure everyone adheres to the current international protocols on warfare.

    As for groups like Daesh and al-Qaeda and other fringe groups that refuse to abide by international agreements; the solution is simple – give their fighters no quarter since they grant no quarter to their captives. It’s a fairly straight-forward issue.

    Peace.

  46. @Robert Spencer

    Mr. Spencer: First, I am a big fan of yours. Your work on Islam is the best out there. Also, your bravery in confronting Islam head-on (and leftists, i.e., in Iceland) is a modern day version of Charles Martel, Don Juan of Austria and Queen Isabella of Spain and their bravery in dealing with Islam.

    I have read Talha’s responses to you. His comment no. 45, a warning to you, is a perfect example of the evil and degeneracy of Islam. But there is also another factor when dealing with people like Talha. Talha is from Pakistan, a country where the average IQ is 84. Talha is brighter though, at least an IQ of 100, placing him in the talented 10% of his nation. But Pakistanis fall under the Asian category. Caucasians are the highest IQ people, Asians are second and blacks are last.

    I know you are a practicing Greek Catholic, which I believe is aligned with the Roman Catholic Church. I was a cradle RCCer, but left the RCC because I don’t accept black/Asian priests-popes. In dealing with the Islamic problem we must first separate biology from beliefs. Caucasians, Asians, blacks have distince biological markings. But beliefs can be held by anyone, i.e, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam etc.

    The West (Western Europe in particular) cannot save itself until it deals with the issues of IQ which are directly tied to race. The RCC is the biggest problem because as the “universal church” its duty is to convert the world and accepts all peoples as equals. This is the first problem. The second problem comes from the cowardice of the RCC and the present pope to state that Islam is a Christian heresy. This was a common belief and stated by popes before Vatican II. The USA Conference of Bishops should be stating this, but the RCC has been taken over by homosexuals so this issue will not be addressed.

    Talha is engaging in his usual spiel – but again, his biological degeneracy is a contributing factor to his religious degeneracy so he unable to think coherently and logically. I have engaged with him before and told him he is inferior to Caucasians. That is a biological fact.

    The first step in dealing with Talha types is deportation and repatriation.

Here on unz.com it seems that only Cockburn and the Russian writers know and use the word takfiri. It is really only the takfiri who are our enemies.

    You used the word “diversity.” Diversity has to be defined. There is a difference between biology and beliefs. Christianity and Islam are belief systems – there is nothing biological about them.

    But the believers, adherents of these belief systems can be seen objectively to differ in physical appearance. Most Muslims are blacks/Asians. There is diversity among blacks/Asians but one thing is for sure, they are not Caucasians and thus, not Western.

    IQ is a clear, biological empirical truth that can be measured. Caucasians have the highest IQs, then Asians, blacks are last.

    Might be all next to the question of what defines future society.

    Is it group differences, or individual quality assessments.

    Does it mean redefining hierarchical priorities to “other” values as IQ, character traits, as floating on top of prepositions in the pool for health, mental and physical, looks, strength and anything else?

    Does above need to impact as a first the elites, or is it at all important to consider the masses of humans colonizing a dying planet?

    Could it be that a match of a jew and a white women and a “big dick”(as an also) negro, over the span of a few generations and opening up to eugenics in a positive sense, give a future to humanity? Is the clue rather voluntary selection, of dating reading a cheat-sheet of what a person has as a genetic potential for the critical values?

    All other selection criteria have after all failed, it can be given as true that jews, and whites, and some Asians have in the short term been doing better then others, but the derivatives of long term negative impacts for any group exceed the short-term progress, what might be called progress by a current definition: more money, more comfort, more power over others, solutions that crumble when opening the context of say ten thousand years.

    The psychology, the sociology, the criteria of what constitutes power, are off, now a-n-d then, the only difference is the level of assessment that can be applied now as compared to then. This includes race, “good but not good enough”, rewriting the paradigms is an evident requisite.

    As far as muslims, christians, jews, blacks and shapes and flavours of Asians, they all have their “bends”. Different times require humble reconsideration of a large number of variables, probably too many for an individual to convolute into an authoritative diagram. Again the future might be in “quality” human, not based on racial differences but by pooling the best, the genetically superior, the interaction between these and artificial intelligence. To be defined: as far as a level of writing algorithms influenced by current human psychological predispositions, to turn them into somewhat independent running processes, we might even corrupt the promise of artificial intelligence into a multiplication of backwardness.

    The point: individuals, pool creation, redefining elites, and drop the mass psychosis of human-global as irrelevant, a survival systemic, urgency a-n-d relevancy?

    Mr. Spencer,… I must admit I’m not much of a fan of yours, but then I’m not much of a detractor either.

    As is my wont, I did a little background search on Mr. Spencer to learn more about him. It appears he and his partner in crime, Pamela Geller, so inspired Anders Breivik with their writings that Breivik quoted them over 250 times in his online compendium.

    Here’s an excerpt from William Saletan’s article Christian Terrorism: If Muslims are responsible for Islamic terrorism, are Muslim-bashers responsible for the massacre in Norway?

    In a manifesto posted online, the admitted killer, Anders Behring Breivik, praised Geller. He cited her blog, Atlas Shrugs, and the writings of her friends, allies, and collaborators—Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch, Islam Watch, and Front Page magazine—more than 250 times. And he echoed their tactics, tarring peaceful Muslims with the crimes of violent Muslims. He wrote that all Muslims sought to impose “sharia laws” and that “there are no important theological differences between jihadists and so-called ‘peaceful’ or ‘moderate’ Muslims.” He reprinted, as part of the manifesto, a 2006 essay by “Fjordman”—a blogger whose work appears frequently on Geller’s site—which argued that “radical Muslims and moderate Muslims are allies” and that because Islam teaches deception, no Muslim who claims to be moderate can be trusted.

    http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/frame_game/2011/07/christian_terrorism.html

    And here is what that Islamic Radical, Abe Foxman, had to say about Spencer’s and Geller’s work:

    Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called Spencer and Geller American anti-Muslim writers because their writings “promote a conspiratorial anti-Muslim agenda under the pretext of fighting radical Islam. This belief system parallels the creation of an ideological—and far more deadly—form of anti-Semitism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.” He continued, “we must always be wary of those whose love for the Jewish people is born out of hatred of Muslims or Arabs.”

    Hey Cato,

    My impression is that there is even more diversity among Muslims.

    To a certain degree yes, and to a certain degree no.

    The beliefs of Muslims (meaning creed) is actually amazingly uniform across the Sunnis and on core principles, we actually don’t differ much from Shias. It is quite extraordinary since we’ve never held synods or councils or had the equivalent of the sanhedrin to figure out what is orthodox and heterodox. It kind of bubbled up by itself through (world wide) debates in the medieval period.

    As far as jurisprudence or praxis, then there has been wide leeway and there has been a general respect for difference of opinions on these matters. The only thing that mattered was; is the person making a juristic opinion qualified to do so. And that determination was made by his peer jurists (just as a board of doctors or lawyers confers a degree to people of their trade and how top surgeons are ranked by their own peers). For instance, in the class I currently take with a Hanafi mufti, we study the Hidayah of Imam Marghinani (ra). It is a comparative juristic work which shows the Hanafi schools ruling on matters and proofs for how they are derived. Almost every other page the text shows what the divergent opinion of Imam Shafi’i (ra) is on a matter and how he is mistaken, but always puts (رحمة الله عليه – May God have mercy on him) after his name.

    The takfiris break with all of this. For them, there is only one way to interpret Islam and it is theirs. Anyone else is not only wrong, but they are excommunicated. As you can see in the video by Prof. Cook, these people won’t even recognize giants in our tradition like Imam Nawawi (ra) as baseline Muslims. In their eyes, there are practically about 20 million Muslims in the world maybe – max. The fact that they would pull off suicide bombings in the middle of Ramadan in the city of the Prophet (pbuh) shows the depth of their delusional thinking:

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-36706761

    And you can see how they even deal with their own scholars that they disagree with in that jihadica.com (an awesome resource by the way to find out exactly what these takfiri groups are up to and writing about) by setting them up for assassination.

    This kind of thinking goes all the way back to the first takfiris that arose at the time of the Companions (ra) – they were calling Ali ibn Abi Talib (ra) – the fourth caliph, cousin of the Prophet (pbuh), and jurist of the highest rank – an apostate and killed him.

    It is a kind of psychosis and spiritual disease and the fruits of it are obvious; here they run over people with trucks, in Muslim lands, they blow up trucks among kids waiting for ice cream.

    I can certainly understand the concern of people in the West in wanting to prevent them from entering even if it means other harmless people are also barred.

    Hmmm – the silence in response to a simple yes/no question (asked three times now) is…deafening.

    Arabic is not a language somebody simply trips into. And the classical form requires a special effort to learn because, though it is like modern standard Arabic, people simply don’t talk and write like that any more except for people in circles of religious knowledge*. On top of that there are terms that are jargon and nomenclature of that field. For instance, a “pointer” or “class” mean something different in the mind of a programmer than for the masses.

    I consider myself only a student of the language, even after 10 years of study; I’m constantly looking up new words (it’s why I’ve got three Arabic lexicons on my smart phone). But then again, I’m not touting myself around the country as a “scholar of Islam”.

    Peace.

    *My sister-in-law went to Egypt to study the language after she converted and came back after like 8 years of study and now teaches at the university level. However, there are terms I’ve casually asked her about and she has never come across them.

    I don’t think Robert Spencer has a bee in his bonnet nor do I think he hates Muslims. When I was only vaguely familiar with his work I thought he might overstate things a bit, but recently I bought several of his books and have almost completed one. He argues very dispassionately and persuasively about Islamic doctrine and the threat that it poses to the West and how damning information is being concealed about “moderate” Muslim organizations in America and other parts of the world. I haven’t detected any malice in his work thus far.

    I’m not saying he has all the answers or that he’s right in all of his claims, but people really shouldn’t arrogantly dismiss him unless they’ve examined his body of work instead of relying on ad hominem laced press releases from CAIR, ADL and other groups who have their own political agendas. If someone can come up with a cogent point by point refutation of major claims made by Spencer then I might take them more seriously.

    The other thing is that Spencer has never shied away from debate with Muslims and Western liberals and seems to gave gotten the best of most of his adversaries judging by youtube videos I’ve viewed. Ironically, it was an Icelandic left winger in Iceland who poisoned Spencer when he was speaking in that country and not a Muslim.

    My only gripe is that Spencer points out the saltier verses in the Koran and Islam’s other foundational texts but not the Jewish Talmud. Or that only Islam poses a threat to the West but not Jews and Judaism or that Jews do not mistreat Christians.

    It appears he and his partner in crime, Pamela Geller, so inspired Anders Breivik with their writings that Breivik quoted them over 250 times in his online compendium.

    Don’t forget that for all the supposed anti Muslim hate Brevik imbibed he targeted a summer camp for young self hating Norwegian liberals and not Muslims. As I recall this was because Brevik judged them guilty of high treason to Norway and the West for bringing Muslims into Norway and I found it hard to disagree with his reasoning.

    He could have exacted a very bloody toll on Norwegian Muslims if he chose to do so.

    Mr. Spencer does not have to speak or read Arabic to pass judgment on the Koran. As a Catholic, I did not need to read Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic to read the Bible. I relied on a good translation.

    I have read the Koran. It is a farrago, dog’s breakfast of pasted together items from the Old and New Testaments and Arabic pagan beliefs. What the Koran says about Jesus is heretical, so it is easy to judge its contents just from this.

    Is this the geokat we know and love, or some sort of false flag?

    I think my comments make it abundantly clear how I view the work of the ADL and its former director, Abe Foxman. I cited him this time because even he is not willing to endorse Geller’s and Spencer’s writings. I have no issues with talking truth to power. I just don’t think Geller and Spencer are doing that. I think their work is aimed at fomenting conflict between Christians and Muslims, for the benefit of the Jewish state. They would like to see the Crusaders once again cleanse the holy land of these infidels so that Israel is made Greater Again. I just don’t buy into that line.

    My views are pretty straightforward:

    1) the Diversity is Our Strength meme pushed by the ADL and Abe Foxman is a crock of sh*t. It was mfged to make the diaspora feel less threatened by a society that was too homogeneous for their liking. They could almost hear the hoofs of Cossacks on horseback crossing the American plains to commit more pogroms. The sooner European and European-derived countries realize this policy is designed to hasten their undoing, the better – i.e., the US and other Western countries need to repeal asap the non-restrictionist Immigration Acts that The Lobby helped to put in place.

    2) The Lobby’s argument that there is a natural alliance between Jews and Christians (hence the widespread use of term Judeo-Christian) against the Muslims is also a crock of sh*t. This was all mfged to get The Dumb Goyim to support the phony GWOT and take out 7 Muslim countries in 5 years to enhance the security of the villa in the jungle, period.

    That said, you can rest assured that I will never deviate from pointing out the devious intent underpinning these two policy prescriptions. That you can take to the bank.

    I wouldn’t call him a hack exactly

    No, not exactly.

    Depends on one’s definition of a “hack”. I gave him props for one of his blog posts; I thought it was probably 90-95% accurate. Sure, I would have concentrated on other themes of the chapters like patience in adversity and not being niggardly with one’s wealth – but hey, those aren’t themes that he wants to concentrate on so that’s fine. Still, on the stuff he does mention – it’s fairly accurate – so kudos to him. It’s interesting, he mentioned Shayk h Bulandshahri (ra) – I think one or two of my teachers may have studied under him or under one of his direct students. I was a bit shocked though, because I thought his tafsir was only printed in Urdu (I’m thinking, I know he doesn’t know Urdu??!!), but lo and behold, there is an English translation (pretty cool):

    https://nmusba.wordpress.com/2013/02/06/illuminating-discourses-on-the-noble-quran-tafseer-anwarul-bayan-5-vols-set-by-shaykh-ashiq-ilahi-madni-r-a/

    So he is just a hack when he wants to be – he’s quite capable of being more accurate, even with just English material at his disposal.

    Now as far as being a hack for Israeli and Neocon policies; 100% bought and paid for and fully certified.

    But again, as I mentioned in my earlier comment – I give him credit for never claiming to know Arabic. And give him credit again for (if anything) staying silent on the subject.

    Brevik… targeted a summer camp for young self hating Norwegian liberals…

    Hey, KenH. Think about how these young Norwegians became self hating liberals. Where did the “Diversity is Our Strength” meme come from?

    While The Lobby “Norweigian Style” may not be as effective as its “Swedish Style” counterpart, I do know they are active in Norway (see the Norwegian Centre Against Racism).

    Take a look at this 5 min. video:

    Or just read this article, Norway is TOO WHITE! According to the President of the Jewish Community in Oslo:

    “The Norwegian people have very little experience dealing with minorities” So we have a BIG “job to do” in bringing minorities to them, according to Ervin Kohn (Twitter).

    Kohn is the President of The Jewish Community in Oslo and the Deputy Director at the Norwegian Center Against Racism.

    The question is, since when did Norwegians decide they needed an organization to solve the “problem” of racism in their country? After all, isn’t Norway a homogenous country?

    Not for too long, if Kohn has his way!

    https://redice.tv/news/norway-is-too-white-according-to-the-president-of-the-jewish-community-in-oslo

    Bottom Line: no need to go wiping out young self hating Norwegian liberals. What is needed is a concerted effort to alert the youth of all European and European-derived nations to stay away from the Kosher Kool-Aid – i.e., diversity is not our strength… it is our demise!

    The Shafi’i school did come into power for a while in parts of the Levant and Egypt (Ayyubids, Mamluks, etc.) – but no polytheists around that area, so the rule pretty much simply stayed on the books.

  94. John Derbyshire – you should, before anything, educate yourself about Islam and I suggest that you turn to those who have really made an effort to understand it. Particularly impressive is a series called Understanding Islam by Chris Hewer – a Christian – on Ahl al-Bayt or read the transcripts of his talks. You could benefit from reading the studies of the late Professor Annemarie Schimmel. You may also read those whose very belief informs them of its beautiful reality, following the advice of Saint Ambrose – credo ut intelligam – believe so that you may understand. In that category I suggest you read first of all “The Vision of Islam” by Sachiko Murata and William Chittick, both professors, as well as the writings of Professors Syed Hossein Nasr and Hamid Algar. This is sufficient to truly understand the Reality that the religion of Islam reveals.
    Enjoy!

    Surely one can conclude that Islam in common with the other Abrahamic religions which enjoin faith in a creator god who cares about and instructs us from time to time is at its heart obvious nonsense. Clearly that deity didn’t care enough about his creatures to make sure they were all instructed in the unique truth. If you do exert yourself enough to grasp that near truism you not only have an opinion about Islam but you would probably want to put some effort into developing a universal secular morality.

    Then, after I left the South, another crazy, radical, fundamentalist Christian stages a murderous terrorist attack on the Planned Parenthood clinic just down the highway from me in Colorado Springs.

    I don’t think a Muslim has conducted a terrorist attack within 1000 miles of me. I might be wrong about that, I haven’t plotted every attack on google earth to make sure of it.

    Sweet! So I’m cool with not talking about Islam and its doctrines if everyone else is – doesn’t that sound reasonable? After all – this was an article about Muslims, what is and is not Islamic doctrine, and people claiming to write about it.

    is not of the slightest concern to the intelligent person pursuing Truth

    Sure – I get it, it’s taken the West a lot of effort to get where it is; patriarchy is almost on its last legs, getting laid is pretty easy to come by, “muh blasphemy” is recognized as a human right, gay pride parades are ubiquitous in practically all major cities. It’s actually pretty impressive – I don’t believe any other people have progressed this far on so many issues. And a large Muslim population is likely going to throw a monkey wrench in all that – I feel your pain.

    Excuse me for a moment as I make a quick PSA…
    “Truth” you hearing this! You better run, bro – this guy says a bunch of intelligent people are after you! They gonna lynch yo’ Black *ss! And they ain’t interested in religion stopping them neither!

    Take your religion and your disputatious disposition back to your home and work it out with your enemies/friends/neighbors.

    Look this isn’t the schoolyard OK. If I told you – “You better stop eating pork, kafir!” – would you do it? Like I have told others – if you live in the West, there is no need to get riled up – there are legal means to deal with the situation. And these are not shouting at people over anonymous boards. You guys should spend your time doing the following:
    1) Contact your representatives and outline why Muslims should be stripped of citizenship and forcibly relocated to Muslim lands.
    2) Come up with a single-issue organization that votes as a bloc on only one thing; legal relocation of Muslims from the West – forget abortion, foreign policy, economic trade pacts, welfare, etc. Make every representative know they will be graded and publicly made known. I would suggest working with the NRA (the preeminent one-issue group) to get tips on how to proceed – you will likely have a good amount of overlap:

    Would you consider, Priss, that what you call racism – belief in one’s people – is a byproduct?

    It is sort of like self-esteem – one cannot pluck it out of thin air.

    Jews, Muslims, even Chinese – all ground their self-belief in seeing themselves as servants of a higher power, manifesters and vehicles of divine values.

    HBD, genes, survival of the fittest – only white people have attempted to ground their self-belief in materialism.

    Ironicaly, racism may not be capable of being based on frank selfishness.

    What a delicious irony!

    A people may only be able to believe in itself when it sees itself as a vehicle of higher values!

    Racism may not be capable of a materialistic basis.

    Certainly, it is striking that white self-belief – white racism – began to decline when whites ceased seeing themselves as bearers of higher values, and became frankly materialistic.

    Your prophet Darwin has failed you, Priss, and has brought ruin upon your people.

    And yet whites cling loyally, with infinite stupidity, to the prophet that has brought them to ruin.

    The attempt now to erect white self-belief, white racism, on a Darwinism basis – with all its talk of genes, HBD, and evolution – what could be stupider?

  120. Inside every Muslim today there is a voice whispering: [psychological warfare garbage deleted]

    What absolute rubbish.

    It may interest the forum to know that for “every Muslim” “the whisperer” is none other than “the father of lies [John 8.44]“. There is even an entire Sura in the Quran about the “whisperer”.

    Which is interesting, as the author of that quaint wishful thinking apparently has inside info as to what the devil is whispering. Must be a minion of the said father of lies. Which reminds me of that guy who yesterday published the “leaked” directive from the entity’s government to its embassies …

    So don’t worry cupcake: if a Muslim notes any “whispering” “inside”, that Muslim will immediately recite the noted Sura. And guess what? It works!

    Most mass murders committed in the US are not committed by Muslims. I don’t see John Derbyshire calling for collective punishment in those other cases unrelated to Muslims. For Muslims – he calls for collective punishment. I suppose you could argue that in other cases committed by native-born Americans, there is no obvious collective to blame and call for the collective punishment of. However, the left’s call to abolish gun rights for everyone are a form of call for collective punishment. John Derbyshire doesn’t call for that kind of collective punishment either, and I don’t think he supports it. So what are the criteria for when to apply collective punishment?

    It may interest you to know Priss that in the Quran Muhammad (SAWS) is called “The Gentile Prophet”. The specific term used is ‘ummi’ which typically is translated to as “unlettered”. (The Israelites — not to be confused with the tribe of Judah or the Khazarian horde — were given “holy letters” via Moses (SA)).

    I also disagree regarding those who hate Muslims. It is not Muslims per se but rather The Quran that infuriates the demons. So any who adheres to falsehood hates that book, and none more than “the enemy” of mankind.

Just like the left’s call to ban arms (or arms of certain kinds) to everyone is a form of collective punishment, but not the most severe of punishment. Collective punishment is a call to punish people who are not directly guilty of the crime and have not committed a crime.

They kept invading and killing to get their hands on the treasures of their royal peers, so why not the Jewish bankers? Some kind of voodoo magic?

    You touched on the main root problem:
    it’s not like you can magically derive the rules or opinions of abrogation out of thin air) – but you want to ignore their writings when they disagree with you. Your are in an epistemological bind

    Abrogation means that pre-Medina doctrine is abrogated, it is “less” than post Medina. (When Mohammed was in Mecca, his teachings were the “peaceful phase.)

    Until Islam deals with Abrogation, then it cannot be taken seriously. Reform in Islam requires grappling with the problems inherent in Abrogation. In Christianity, a similar construct, called super-cession has new testament supersede old testament. The more violent and retrograde old testament, is put away and completed.

    Islam is thus opposite of Christianity, the more violent retrograde aspects of Islam are enshrined by abrogation. Takfiri behavior is is entirely in alignment with abrogations precepts.

    Imam’s then have enormous power to pick and choose passages, to then get the response they want. There is an element of deception also, since the Koran is not in chronological order.

    This coupling of Imam power, abrogation and political Islam i.e. Sharia – can be a deadly combination.

    Islam’s followers like Suffi’s CHOOSE to ignore the more psychopathic/evil aspects of Islam, but that is NOT DOCTRINE. Suffis keep the crazy aunt in the basement, but she may break out any time.

    Excerpt from How Sweden Became Multicultural:

    To gain a better understanding of the fundamental change Swedish politics and society has undergone we must acquaint ourselves with the newspaper debates that began in 1964. It’s also important that we understand the man who was at the centre of the process that transformed Sweden. His name was David Schwarz*, the father of Swedish multiculturalism.

    * David Schwarz came from a Jewish family and was born in Poland in 1928. During the Second World War he was interned in four different concentration camps: Buchenwald, Nordhausen, Dora, and Bergen-Belsen. Like many other concentration camp interns he suffered from typhus and tuberculosis but Schwarz was luckier than many others and was placed in a sanatorium in Germany and later Italy where he resided until 1950. When the Italian sanatorium closed Schwarz was sent to Sweden where he was treated at various facilities until 1954.

    Second, to affect changes in Christian realms that would encounter resistance from the Church or population, it was and remains convenient to have Jews as the front.

    Why don’t you look at the book and see? Every verse has been translated by a venerable translator such as Pickthall, who converted to Islam. Its placement in the standard Qur’an is noted as well as the evidence supporting its placement in the chronological arrangement of this book in reverse order. In other words, the violent verses of the Medina years appearing before the earlier, abrogated, relatively peaceful verses of the Mecca years. And the abrogated verses are crossed out, with information given on the abrogating Islamic authorities. The normal order is the longest surat first, followed by the shorter and shorter ones, with no chronological or thematic connection, and the result of this is that it makes no sense to the casual reader.

    Muslims are not free to interpret it as they like. There are four accepted schools of Qur’anic interpretation and jurisprudence in the Sunni branch and another for the Shi’a. There are fourteen hundred years of Islamic jurisprudence, with meticulously reasoned justifications for every conclusion given. Muslims must adhere to the letter of the Qur’an and hadith. There are many mandates which a non-Muslim would find morally unacceptable, and there is no way to get past this. It is unfortunately the case that a billion and a half people have decided to support this ideology. There is no room for private interpretations which differ from the mainstream view.

    Look, if you say we made it up, then start and finish with that. It is silly to hash over details. We made the whole thing up; there is no abrogation, there are no Madinan verses and Makkan verses, etc. It all came actually at Tabuk (assuming that occurred) and then we just did whatever we wanted with it. You can’t trust what Muslim scholars write, they just lie about everything.

    Your argument is akin to calling your star witness to the stance (the Islamic tradition, as formulated by the Muslim scholars – unless you think Martians came up with these exegetical terms) to buttress your case and then, when the witness is cross examined and undermines your position – you turn to the jury and say, “Obviously, ladies and gentleman, the man is a liar.”

    I suggest investing some time into Greek logic (I was fortunate enough to take a course during my computer science studies at UCLA) and then coming up with a cogent, epistemologically sound argument. Otherwise it is a waste of both our time. I don’t feel like looking up medieval texts in Arabic so you can dismiss the arguments off hand as taqiyyah awesomeness.

    Muslims must adhere to the letter of the Qur’an and hadith.

    So right on the proverbial tin (Sura al-Baqarah), the Quran states unequivicocally that it has no flaws but it will only benefit a specific set of people. The membership criteria for inclusion in this set is spelled out. There is no guess work, and very little room for “interpretation”. You’re either in this set (in which case it will be ‘guidance’) or you are not.

    Since it says, right there in the very beginning, that it is of benefit to a constrained set of “readers”, you may wonder if its NOT-”benefitial” to those who do not meet the membership criteria.

    There is many a reciter of the Qur’an whom the Qur’an curses. — Hadith

    Hah. So it turns out that reading the Qur’an may not be such a good idea — curses — for some people.

    Is it possible that these are those who do NOT meet the very clear and specific criteria spelled out in the 2nd Sura of this scripture?

    As for ‘comprehending’ the Qur’an, it also says:

    None may approach it but the Purified.

    What we’re going through is class warfare. Your inflamed ethnic sensibilities, per design, are preventing you from seeing what is happening. I assure you, on this planet, on the very tippy top of the pyramid, White European(-descent) men rule. And they intend to continue to rule.

    You belong to the no longer necessary middle class, so you have no invite and will not be getting the memo spelling things out.

    The very fact that a White politician is cheerleading the disempowerment of Whites should be your clue. Your second clue can be the fact that feminization of the male is directed at all men, not just White men.

You have this bizarre fixation on Italians, Greeks being black. You once commented that the Irish are black/Asian. They are not. You are projecting your own rejection in the West on a person who is accepted. Where I live there are many Italians and many look like Robert Spencer. They are Catholics. they sometimes get mistaken for Jews (they have told me this) but tell people they are Italian and Catholic. I mistook some for Jews and they said this. Robert Spencer is a deacon in his church. Besides your race issue, I’m sure you Muslim past is causing frustration.

    Crime ? What crime?
    Every country has the right to say “NO” to someone, anyone, who wants to immigrate to that country.
    Muslims, or anybody else, who is not allowed into US is no worse off staying in their own country.
    They are (potentially) not better off not being in the US, but they are no worse off.
    So what so-called ‘punishment’ are you talking about?
    Not being rewarded is being ‘punished’ under Islamologic?

    If you have a Muslim prayer gathering and discussion of Quran in your house, and some Christian proselytizers find out about it and decide to show up uninvited, and you don’t let them in, are you quote ‘punishing’ them? Of course not: your house, your rules.

    Same with US.
    Is not allowing Muslims as a group into US discriminatory? Sure is.
    Unfair to Muslims? Most likely.
    So?
    No foreigner has an inherent right to immigrate to US.
    Nevertheless, the 1965 Immigration Law prohibits immigration discrimination based on religion.
    If US can’t find loopholes to ban most Muslim immigration, then maybe _all_ immigration ought to be stopped until further notice.

    The people holding that march were being deliberately provocative and insulting in what looks to be a Muslim-majority neighborhood. How do you expect people to react? I mean seriously? The younger hot heads of that community (like other communities) will take the bait.

    Let’s take East LA. If you had a group of Whites brandishing American flags with megaphones walking through the streets saying; “All you stinking, wet-back beaners ruined this neighborhood!” About how well do you think it would go?

    Take immigrants out of it. Have the same people go to a part of Detroit and say; “This used to be a nice respectable White area before you niggers and your whores moved in here!” Suspect they would be greeted with free baskets of fried chicken and bean pie?

    Or even go in an area with back to back trailer parks and start yelling; “You know, this place was a nice place to live until all you White trash started moving in!” Then see what happens.

    Not so – depends which Shiah we’re talking about. Some Shiah, we Sunnis wouldn’t consider Muslim due to very deviant beliefs. But I’m not talking about extreme groups.

    You know this.

    I was quite deliberate in my wording:
    “and on core principles, we actually don’t differ much from Shias”

    Which core necessary beliefs for faith do we differ on? The Oneness of God, the authority and preservation of the Qur’an, etc.? Do we both not pray? Facing the qiblah? Do we both not fast from sunrise to sunset? In Ramadan?

    That is why you will find even Shiah among our hadith chains (very few, but they are there) and they even refer to our scholars; Imam Taftazani (ra) was a giant of Sunni creed and a master jurist and logician the – Shiah refer to his works when teaching rules for deriving law.

    And if you talk about the Zaydis, they’re a mix of Sunni and Mu’tazili with some Shiah thrown in.

    My teacher of Qur’an in So Cal had a little Shiah boy as a student whose father would drop him off in the early morning for prayer. The boy’s father instructed him not to pray behind the imam (due to differences in rules) so he would – pray off to the side. And yet, the boy was learning Qur’an memorization from my teacher.

    beliefs regarding the descendants of Ali and Muhammed are completely at odds

    At odds? Yes – 100%. “Completely”? Hardly.

    Which traditional Sunnis don’t regard the Ahl ul-Bayt and the Shiah Imams with honor? Sunnis don’t consider them to be free of mistakes like Shiahs do, but they were very well regarded as both pious spiritual guides and jurists. Imam Shafi’i (ra) got in trouble for his love and his poems about the Ahl ul-Bayt. Which Sunni doesn’t respect Imams Jafar as-Sadiq or Musa al-Kadhim (ra).

    The fact that the Ummayads and Abbassids were after them had to do with them being perceived as a political threat. Ottoman/Safavid wars were also much more about politics – many Safavid soldiers were quite Sunni.

    And yes, the traditional scholars from both sides discourage each other from marrying one another due to some of the differences about the early Companions (ra), and certain legal practices. The muftis I’ve learned under still consider it a valid marriage.

    Contrast this with, say, Ahmadiyyahs. If you look at them, they look and practice just like Sunni Muslims of the Hanafi school. But because of a fundamental differences in belief, we don’t accept them as Muslim.

    In the current wars, it’s the extremist Wahhabi-Salafi types that are always looking for a fight. There are also a few extremist Shiah elements also, but I’ve seen that their scholars have them under way better control – because they are pretty solid about getting guidance from their ulema. At times, I wish Sunnis were more like that in that respect.

    Talha, I always appreciate your knowledgeable comments and the calm way in which you conduct yourself. When I referred to diversity I actually meant something broader than the denominations or schools of jurisprudence. Islam has many adherents focused on “works,” who, much like Orthodox Jews, focus on ritual acts, such as eating only things that are halal, performing salat, etc. Within Christianity, there are a few denominations that might be somewhat focused on works (the Orthodox and Catholics with their sacraments), but most of us are in the path of St. Paul, and focus on “faith”. Islam has many adherents who resemble Christians in this respect. Very few of the Muslims I know go to mosque, most don’t do salat at home, and many consider the dietary restrictions irrelevant, yet they clearly have a strong belief in God and are trying to live life as godly people. So when I say that Islam is more diverse than Christianity, I am saying that it spans a wider spectrum across works and faith.

    Yes, I know about this. This is the Black Madonna of Częstochowa. I grew up with many Eastern Europeans, mostly Polish Catholics. The legend of this icon is that invaders slashed it and tried to burn it, but it could not be destroyed. It is not black because of race. There are other black Madonnas but these are black because of age or candles lit around them. Mary was a Caucasian, like Jesus.

    But I am glad you pointed this out because the RCC is busy rewriting RCC history. There is a cable RCC channel EWTN. There is an evil, mendacious Jesuit named Mitch Pawca who is doing this. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago, he mentioned this black Madonna and implied she was black African. The kicker is Pawca is Polish and knows the truth. But most people don’t. I do. Also, he talks about St. Augustine being African, i.e., a black African. St. Augustine was a Caucasian. Hannibal was a Caucasian. Today’s North Africans are black because after Islam conquered North Africa it imported many black slaves and through polygamy and concubinage the original North Africans were destroyed.

    I follow the archdioceses of Chicago and New York. Dolan and Cupich support homosexuals and these dioceses will be closing in a couple of years. In the Chicago archdiocese there is a movement to canonize a black priest named Augustus Tolton. The bulletin would run a photograph of him. It looked like a mug shot. So now they created an icon which shows a brown skinned man with indeterminate features.

    Also, cuck pope Frannie has made it easier to be declared a saint. Over 95% of RCC saints are Caucasians (the original peoples of the Middle East and North Africa) or Europeans. The blacks/Asians don’t like this, so the RCC now has affirmative action sainthood.

    Even though I am a post-Vatican II Catholic, I was lucky to have attended traditional Catholic schools that managed to teach the truth. These few schools are gone. The RCC is now a homosexual, Freemasonic, multi-culti grand lodge. Diversity has destroyed it.

    Fortunately, we have the Orthodox churches which are racial/ethnic. This is the only way to preserve the faith.

    If you live in the USA, do you live a mostly white area? I live in an area “vibrating with diversity” and can make very good judgments about races.

    As to the rest of your comment, yes I totally get what you are saying and would agree. My teachers of both jurisprudence and spirituality (sometimes the same persons actually) have taught me that the outward shariah consists of the works (and prohibitions) of the body and the inward shariah consists of the disciplines (and prohibitions) of the spirit – like getting rid of lust, greed, pride, envy, etc.

    On a related note, it seems you have traveled in the Muslim world and did some missionary work there, correct? I read a review a while back of a man who had done the same across various countries in the Muslim world. He was not a big fan of Islamic doctrine and was frustrated that Muslims were quite resilient (or stubborn depending on viewpoint) on their faith, but he mentioned that – uniformly – the people he came across were very friendly and generous – especially in the more rural areas. If you were in similar circumstances, does that sound like your experience as well?

Does there need to be a penetrative act or some similar thing, and do there need to be a certain number of witnesses, for a prosecution, and what would be the subsequent penalty? Obviously this is immoral per se in Muslim moral theology. I thought of making a comment on the subject on Sailer’s thread but probably won’t.

    Are you seriously denying that Abrogation is not central to Islam? Are you denying that Abrogation is NOT operative.

    You have no argument, because the evidence is available for all to see. Imam’s can issue fatwa’s at any time, and their “Legal Argument” is bolstered by Abrogations tenents..

    These “scholars” know chronology of events, and which “ayats” they can conjure to get the effect they want. I am pushing right on the central nerve of Islam’s defect, and you know it. This is why your response is mealy mouthed and does not address the problem.

    To abrogate means to abolish, do away with, or annul, especially by authority.

    This is a key term in studying the Quran. There are some peaceful, tolerant verses in the Quran. But the violent, intolerant ones have abrogated them. The Quran itself explains what to do with conflicting verses. If two passages conflict, it says, the one written later is better than the one written earlier. The earlier passage has been abrogated by the later one

    You and other Islamic scholars cannot answer these charges because they are demonstrably true. Islam requires reform, and it must begin with the abomination that is abrogation.

    A lot (I mean A LOT) of the law is open to what is called ta’zir for anything not fixed by the shariah:

    http://www.oxfordislamicstudies.com/article/opr/t125/e2363

    That is discretionary punishment and any society can decide on what they feel is best according to circumstances: the punishment can range from death to something as mild as (I kid you not, since I have read it) a very stern look from the judge.

    Same thing with the amount of evidence needed; need eye witnesses? Or is circumstantial evidence enough? Video footage? Lot of room to work with here.

    These are the kinds of things legislative bodies can decide on and the people can give voice to; with ulema presiding over the review process to make sure nothing violates Islamic law – for instance a law condemning a person to torture by blowtorch for swindling the elderly out of their retirement money.

    A man exposing himself – hmmm – well, I’m open to discussion, how would you like it handled?

    Imam Shāfi¿ī, founder of one of the four great schools of jurisprudence, said:

    It is not allowed for anyone to give a Shari¿ah explanation (fatwā), except one who knows the Holy Qur’ān completely including what verses are abrogated and by which verses they were abrogated, and which verses resemble each other in the Qur’ān and whether a chapter was revealed in Makkah or Madina. He must know the entire corpus of the Hadith of the Prophet (s), both those which are authentic and those which are false. He must know the Arabic language of the time of the Prophet (s) with its grammar and eloquence as well as know the poetry of the Arabs. Additionally, he must know the culture of the various peoples who live in each different nation of the community. If a person has all such attributes combined in himself, he may speak on what is permitted (ħalāl) and what is forbidden (ħarām). Otherwise he has no right to issue a fatwā.

    Mecca (Makkah) and Medina are the rough dividing time line for Abrogation.

    Hey MEFOBILLS,

    Are you seriously denying that Abrogation is not central to Islam? Are you denying that Abrogation is NOT operative.

    I’m doing neither – of course naasikh and mansookh is a central (and probably the most complicated) of the sciences of the Qur’an. It would be ridiculous to deny it.

    Imam’s can issue fatwa’s at any time

    No. One has to be a qualified mufti to do so, but assuming one is…uh yeah – that’s kind of in their job description. Winning hot-dog eating contests isn’t.

    To abrogate means to abolish, do away with, or annul, especially by authority.

    Or to modify; as in make addendum to, make exceptions for, etc. Look at the verse in question again and Imam Ibn Juzayy’s explanation on it – he compared two verses and pointed out the various opinions on it; some said the first cancels the other, others said the reverse, but the majority of the jurists stated that both verses are in operation.

    And that is the way with many verses. When scholars mention abrogated, there is a whole range of opinion on what that means and exactly which verses it refers to – this is a good starting point (unless you simply dismiss it as taqiyyah):

    http://seekershub.org/ans-blog/2010/11/06/jihad-abrogation-in-the-quran-the-verse-of-the-sword/

    If you want to define the term abrogation as you like, that’s well and good for me. If you also only want to look at the words of scholars that fit your narrative and ignore everyone else, that’s fine too. Not a single Muslim I can think of defines it based on what non-Muslims have to say about it. The tradition is completely insulated from outside input; our religion, our party, our rules. If you want to define the terms of a religion come up with your own.

    The best place to go to find out the end result of the discussions and debates are to simply go to the various schools of jurisprudence and see what they ruled on a particular matter. And all of them state clearly that Islam is not a pacifist religion (neither is this what I would ever argue because it’s a stupid and ahistoric stand to take); Muslims can and are allowed to wage war in the right circumstances and also can and are allowed to make peace treaties – I can’t think of a single school that says otherwise. Wisdom is in knowing when to do what.

    I also can’t think of a single Muslim scholar of note that wants to overturn the current international non-aggression framework. If you do, name them and we can discuss.

    Islam requires reform

    That’s your opinion – we simply disagree. In fact, you assume only cuddly, cute things like gay rights and females leading prayer comes out of reform. The carnage in the Middle East is “The Reformation”. When you break with 14 centuries of legal tradition, you flip a coin and hope only the “progressive” side comes out on top. Read history and see how nice and happy The Reformation was in Europe.

    “Irish” is an American word, along the same lines that “St. Patrick’s day” is a lot bigger in Boston than it is is Dublin. The Gaelic term is “Erie”, like the lake.

    For instance “Erin go Bragh” means “Ireland Forever” in Gaelic.

    This has nothing to do with “Jew” with means “from Judah” which was one of the twin kindoms of OT days (Israel being the other).

    “Jewish” means “like a person from Judah”, which is technically “Yehewda” as there is no “J”sound in Aramaic.

    So basically, “Jewish” means, “those people who are supposed to be like us, but talk funny (because they’re from somewhere else).

    I hope everyone is paying attention to this important post. This is not a boy scout religion. There are very heavy requirements for being able to issue a fatwa – it is not a joke. It takes years of dedicated study. Any legal pronouncements coming from those that are unqualified should be rejected without further discussion.

    My own teachers, who are younger muftis in the Hanafi school, will often ask and defer to their teachers when issuing legal rulings in order to minimize the risk of a mistake.

    God didn’t find it that important.

    Exactly – it’s not like He doesn’t know what He created.

    “And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge.” (30:22)

    “Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather he looks at your hearts and actions.” – reported in Muslim

    As I was mentioning on another thread; what I’ve been taught – this life is contingent reality (a bit like these huge virtual reality games that kids play nowadays with people plugging in from everywhere). It’s a testing ground and sealed environment. Your soul gets plugged in at some point and time into an avatar and circumstances you can’t choose and you are asked to make the best of it – keeping in mind that you are being tested at every moment. Eventually, you get unplugged and you can’t take a thing with you (including your wealth or your own body – race starts and ends with test, it has no intrinsic value) and then get graded on results. Eventually the whole system will get tanked once the last test-takers have entered the fray.

    All this talk of empires and demographic replacement and wealth distribution is interesting, but one’s own participation ends once they close their eyes for the last time – that’s when we wake up to Reality.

    Abrogation is MOST CERTAINLY OPERATIVE in Islam, despite your hand waving and dissimulation.

    This is what Islamics do when cornered, they make excuses and want to change the subject. Or, they list their particular sect and pretend it doesn’t “do that.” It doesn’t matter what your “teacher” says, or what your exceptions are. Doctrine is the guiding principle of the entire corpus of the religion.

    Also, you give yourself away with an ad-hominem that I would be Ok with gay rights and that I am cuddly toward women. What the hell is that? That is you pulling a straw man from your febrile imagination.

    High Civilization requires Logos. Logos is natural law. The sort of Law that comes from the middle east, especially Talmud and also Koranic, is not logos. It is not rational, it is dogmatic.

    Yes, the West is now post Christian, and has slid into the sewer, but that sure as hell doesn’t make Islam smell Rosy by comparison. The psychopathic constructs are in Islam, and they are enshrined by Abrogation.

    Or, they list their particular sect

    It doesn’t matter what your “teacher” says, or what your exceptions are.

    No, not to you, that would ruin your narrative that Islamic doctrine coincides with your presuppositions. No difference of opinion is allowed. Only the scholars you cite are correct whether or not they form a minority opinion; any “scholar” or “teacher” I cite is just a sect that can easily be dismissed.

    Doctrine is the guiding principle of the entire corpus of the religion.

    More lessons – splendid! I don’t know what I’d do without you setting me straight. And, of course, you get to define exactly what that doctrine is.

    Jesus was not black, but if he was proven black (or Asian), I would not be a Christian.

    Jesus was a Jew. But He and the Jews of His time are not related to today’s Jews. Today’s Jews are a very mixed race. There may be some Semitic DNA but not enough to justify their claims. I’ve read about their Khazar ancestry. I look at today’s Jews as strange people who become convinced that they are the chosen. The RCC and the Zioevangizers are the ones who feed this myth. But since these people want to be Jewish, fine, then they must all live in Israel. Today’s Jews have high intermarriage with blacks/Asians so this further muddles their DNA. One reason the RCC, Freemasons and Zioevangizers support Israel and the rebuilding of the temple is that they believe this will cause Jesus to return. The temple will never be rebuilt. The last person to try this was Julian the Apostate. An earthquake stopped him. An earthquake will stop any attempts today to rebuild it.

    You are correct that institutional Christianity will come apart. This will be because of the IQ/race differences. The different races will have their own churches. The pope is irrevelant. Right now there are Muslims praying in Paris streets. All cuck pope Frannie has to do is quote Matthew 6:5-6 about praying in public. But the homosexual, Freemasonic pope, bishops and priests will not say this. We truly are at the end of time. The post-Vatican II world is a complete break from the past. Before Vatican II, the world was still a difficult place to travel. But ever since the mid-1960s, cheaper travel and now the internet have shrunk the world. The world has been settled, IQs measured, and races delineated. I don’t believe there is life any where else in the universe. First, as a Christian, the Crucifixion and Resurrection are things that cannot be replicated. But if there are other beings on other planets, maybe the reason they cannot contact us is because they have low IQs.

    The most objective truth is IQ, which leads to race differences. This will be the new measure of people.

    You certainly should read (or at least skim) Mein Kampf, at least. Far from “propaganda” (or at any rate no more propaganda than is contained in – necessarily – every biographical piece by an active politician), it’s a primary source on the thinking and personality of one of the most important and influential players in global politics.

    It’s reasonably well written and does contain many striking insights, plus a lot of tosh (as do all such books), and some pretty turgid bits. But imo you’re going to struggle to understand the history of WW2 (and therefore much of the basis of subsequent events right up to today) without it. The ongoing demonisation of Hitler (I make no assertion here as to whether and to what extent such demonisation is justified) and the ongoing use of his name, his views and his actions to drive modern politics and even military strategy, means his personal relevance has not faded nearly so much as that of many of his contemporaries.

    Hey MEFOBILLS,

    You are the one who challenged the definition of abrogation, and are now changing tune.

    No, I simply didn’t want to engage with someone who was going to dismiss my arguments out of hand. And I was correct in my initial assumption so I’m actually just using your comments to get my points out there fro everyone else to see. I never disagreed with you about the concept of abrogation – I disagree with your myopic description of the term.

    Now, if you don’t care what men like Imams Zamakhshari (ra), Shah Wali-ullah (ra) and others, even Imam Suyuti (ra) – who was both a Shafi’i exegete and (importantly) a first class jurist – then there is not much to talk about. If you want to dismiss the conclusions of huge schools of jurisprudence like the Maliki and Hanafi as mere “sects” – that’s also fine with me.

    But, I admit, your argument is air tight – if you only count the opinions of the scholars that agree with your assumption and dismiss the opinions of “scholars” who disagree with you, then you win! Congratulations! Man did I get my backside handed to me again!

    the all knowing Allah has to substitute better things…. making it up as he goes

    I don’t see why this is so difficult to understand. For instance, the Arabs used to drink like Irishmen so the prohibition on alcohol was slowly revealed. At first, they were only supposed too not come drunk to the prayer, eventually – when their faith was strong – the prohibition was complete. Same with prayer rules; at the beginning, it was completely valid to move around or talk during the prayer, but once the Muslim community became used to the rules, slowly and slowly, all these allowances were removed until you get to the very formal prayer that you see today.

    The principle of abrogation is quite evident in the Christian tradition. New Testament trumps the rules of the Old, even though the same God revealed them. Different times + different people = different rules. Sure, men like James the Just argued that the Mosaic Law was still in effect and churches like the Ethiopian Orthodox still abide by kosher laws, but for the most part the rules of the Mosaic law are abrogated for Christians. Furthermore, anyone who is part of the Reformation churches has also implicitly abrogated the Catholic Latin tradition.

    So abrogation is quite a rational concept.

    actual Islamic history is not that pretty

    No – like Christian history – it’s not…ask the Mayans.

    You assume I’m #3

    Only God knows you for who you are. I can only judge based on my interaction with you. You might be a swell guy to play basketball or video games with, but your knowledge of Islam is, ahem, lacking somewhat.

I will likely never invest time into going through the whole thing, but I’m willing to give it some attention due to the fact (as you pointed out) is was mover in history.

    I have to be frank; though WW2 does fascinate me and I have read up on things like Operation Barbarossa, D Day and even the exploits of Rommel in North Africa – it has never occupied my mind that much. Which is why I tend to stay out of any discussions on it. The European continent seems to historically be a place where every few decades or so, a massive continent-wide war erupts for various reasons. Go back a few decades and it’s WW1, then go back to Napoleonic Wars, then to back to 7 Years War, then…

    It’s like a dormant volcano right now and I hope it stays that way.

    “You’ve stated you’re Turkish, anti-white, atheist and a jihad sympathizer.”

    A person cannot, with any logical consistency, be an ***atheist*** AND a ***jihad sympathizer*** at the same time, since the meaning of jihad is “holy war against infidels and unbelievers”. If this jackass is really stating that he is both simultaneously, then either:

    - He is an idiot, OR;
    - He is a schizoid individual, OR;
    - He is a typical Islamo-Turkic liar and mountebank, whose every utterance about these issues is unadulterated bullshit not to be taken seriously, OR;
    - This is an indication of the present internal situation of Turkey and Turkish society ruled by the regime of the Islamic psycho-tyrant Erdogandog, where, in order to be able to state that you are an atheist (or even strongly secular) without being murdered or other bad things happening to you, you need to follow up immediately with stating that you are a “jihad sympathizer”, in order to mollify the fanatic maniacs. Which just goes to show you how far down the rathole today’s Turkey has descended, from the forward-looking secular republic set up by Ataturk 94 years ago.

    THANK YOU PARBES!!!! You are correct in that Anonymous is a combo of your last 2 points. I’ve been going back and forth with this “Turkish, anti-white, atheist and a jihad sympathizer” for several months. He always posts very oblique comments. But several times he ranted against Italians and Greeks saying that they’re black, that the Irish are black and Asian, and that spic chicks married into the Dutch and Swedish royal families. Robert Spencer is Jewish. Complete nonsense. He would spout racial purity nonsense that makes the Stormfronters look like big-time race mixers. Finally he revealed himself in a comment he made to Talha. I asked again, who, what are you? And he told me what he is. Also, he would not believe that I was a girl. Now I see it is because he is a Muslim and we know how women are treated in the Islamic world.

    I used to wonder why Unz Review would allow them to post. But I am glad they did. They have allowed me to go back and forth with the likes of an Anonymous and Talha. There are Jewish commentators but they will not comment with me. I always ask if a commentator is Jewish, Asian or involved with Asians. It gives a good idea of the kind of person with whom I am dealing. Ron Unz is Jewish. This is not an anti-Semitic jab, just a fact. Jews will always side with Muslims/blacks/Asians. Jews/Muslims; trad RCCers/liberal RCCers; neocons/progressives are flip-sides of the same coin. We Westerners have our own degenerates, i.e. John Derbyshire. But what has been most revealing from my exchanges is the cowardliness of the cuck RCC/Zioevangizer male. This is the root of our problems. I read John Derbyshire’s columns at VDare and they then wind up on the Unz Review. This man is a perfect symbol of Western male degeneracy and cowardice. I hope you read my comments to him above. I get flak from commentators who try to blame the Jews for everything. No, the Jew will only do what the RCC/Zioevangizers allow him to do. The West cannot be saved until we deal with the RCC/Zioevangiers. Islam is a Christian heresy. Until cuck pope Frannie announces this, the problems in Western Europe will not be solved. Everything Talha babbles about is meaningless drivel because his belief system is based on a heresy. Also, “universal brotherhood” and “universal church” are the 2 most evil, oxymoronic beliefs. This is why I always ask a RCC commentator if they accept black/Asian priests-popes. If they do, they are in the Derbyshire category. I have given historical examples of what happens when people miscegenate, i.e., ancient Egypt and ancient India. I will fight to make sure the West is not destroyed like as these great, ancient civilizations were destroyed.

    The only way Derbyshire can redeem himself is he said, that yes, I married a woman from an inferior race (Asian) but she is grateful for an evolutionary advantage. Asian genes are recessive and will disappear but only if there are only a few Asians. We have too many Asians in the USA and the West. They must go. He could do this at an AmRen conference, with his wife and Chinese offspring present. Then his Chinese wife could make the statement, that yes, I am grateful that a white man saved me from China and gave my children and evolutionary racial advancement. His offspring could raise their hands in agreement. But this will never happen because Derbyshire believes the English and Chinese are equal races!!! The Chinese hate Westerners. His wife and daughter voted for Obummer. Derbyshire has imported problems into the West.

    I listen to and read RadioAryan and the Daily Stormer. There is some good stuff out there, but they believe in national socialism. They admire North Korea, Iran.

    Taqiyyah-laced Islamic apologia is not “intellectual discussion”. At least, not in the modern world; and definitely not when squirted in the faces of non-Muslims.

    The so-called Muslim medieval “golden age of science” is a misnomer. There never really was an original, Muslim “golden age of science”. What is erroneously called that, was in fact largely a re-hashing, copying and partial transmission of certain limited, selected portions of the works of pre-Islamic (mostly Graeco-Roman) civilizations that had existed in the same rough geographic space, by a VERY SMALL NUMBER of interested Muslim scholars – and even that, was soon terminated by the fundamentalist fanatics who abhorred Rationalism, Science, and the works of infidels. And in any case, all of that was exceeded and superseded many, many times over by mid-to-late-medieval and Renaissance Europeans, a short time afterwards.

    It seems that your knowledge of history and your intellectual capacities are at the mediocre level.

    Mohammed’s Koran is a must-read as it emphasizes the importance of abrogation in interpreting that vile document. Other must-reads are Sahih al Bukhari and Reliance of the Traveler, the Shafi manual of Islamic jurisprudence. The latter is particularly valuable as it was recently certified by scholars at al Azhar University (the MIT of the Muslim world) as being a faithful translation of Islamic law. Chapters O (Justice) and P (Enormities) provide all you need to know about how Muslims view the Infidels.

    Talah,

    Keep trying… good effort.

    In Christianity it is SUPER-CESSION. What supercedes the old testament is new testament.

    New testament puts away, completes and makes old testament a dusty guide. It is not the same concept as abrogation.

    Worse, the Koran is written in an opaque way, where only the “insider” predator Imam’s can then make use of the verses as needed, at that time. The Imam’s are the only ones with the authority. Abrogation gives the Imam the power to pick and choose situationally dependent.

    In Christianity was supersedes the old testament is decidedly less retrograde and psychopathic. In Islam post Medina is held up by abrogation, and it is decidedly more retrograde and psychopathic the Meccan theology. Do I need to quote the psychopathy, or are you sufficiently up on your studies?

    The two methods Super-cession and Abrogation are similar but also different in important ways. Super-cession means a more complete break. Abrogation means that the two are still valid, but one is more valid than the other. The later is more valid than the previous. I gave you the Koranic injunction, and now that you are back-peddling maybe you will listen to reason.

    Upon Abrogation, the entire edifice of Islam pivots. The war-like post Medina construct has been continuously at war against dar -al-harb.

    India is not racially homogeneous, huge regional differences, also some caste-based differences. Pakistan’s population has more east asian (Mongol, Turkic, from the Mughal Empire, or however we are supposed to spell it in english now) than any part of India, except the far nth. east (diferent type of east asian, close to Burmese and Bhutanese).

    To forestall idiot comments on this increasingly silly thread, yes, in the nth. east of India, Bengalis and most Bangladeshis (and the so-called Rohingya, would-be invaders of Burma) share the same phenotype, not east asian, they also have the same speech patterns and (largely) language.

    Taqiyyah, dissembling, a forked tongue, worshipping a perverted Arab desert brigand who lived 1400 years ago as your god-figure,

    Taqiyyah means that everytime Talah signs off with “Peace” he really means the opposite. Or, we cannot know, since deception is a core concept in Islam.

    Judaism also has deception as a core principle, with their Kol-Niedre prayer.

    Any religion that has to be sneaky, underhanded, and use deception is a man-made construct, it is not of God.

    Next time he signs off with “Peace” just remember, he really means war. (Or, at least we cannot know what he really means, and hence he and his co-coreligionists cannot be trusted.)

    Remove Kebab – it is the best solution to the problem. There is no compromise available. No high trust civilization can survive if its citizens adhere to deception as guiding principles.

    Russia has found a compromise with Chechen’s, but that is only a temporary – a hudnah. The Chechen’s now know they will be hunted down if they get out of hand.

    It may be too late for the west though, as it has been thoroughly rotted out from the inside with a lot of help from our Satanic ((friends)).

    Hey MEFOBILLS,

    New testament puts away, completes and makes old testament a dusty guide. It is not the same concept as abrogation.

    It is; it is just a complete abrogation. We are still not agreeing on baseline terms. So this is likely not going to get anywhere.

    The Imam’s are the only ones with the authority.

    Well technically a qualified scholar (since an “imam” is a pretty loose term that can be used to apply to anything from a simple prayer leader to a scholar of Islam to the caliph). But, yeah – I thought that was clear with me agreeing with the quote you posted from Imam Shafi’i (ra). I TOTALLY AGREE – the qualified scholars of Islam are the ones that are able to derive legal rules from the source text.

    Abrogation gives the Imam the power to pick and choose situationally dependent.

    Actually abrogation limits and points the scholar in a particular direction. And there are differences of opinion on which verses (and hadith) abrogate or qualify which ones and to which degree – and therefore the resultant differences in rulings.

    decidedly more retrograde and psychopathic

    Thanks – that is an opinion – that I will file where I file other opinions.

    Abrogation means that the two are still valid, but one is more valid than the other.

    Most of the time, more valid – yes. Agreed.

    post Medina construct has been continuously at war against dar -al-harb

    Correct – because hostility was the assumed relationship between nations in the pre-modern era (unless there was a specific treaty or pact in place) and might be again if the current (post-WW2) non-aggression international order (that Muslim nations are signatory to) breaks down. It is in everyone’s interest to keep things as is. If the world returns to the time of the British and Spanish Empires, we return to the Ottoman and Mughal – no harm, no foul.

    That was the world the medieval Muslim scholars – faithfully and intelligently – produced rulings for.

    It is funny that you are here lecturing me when it is obvious that (post-WW2) that the majority of aggression between nation states has been directed from the West into the Muslim lands. Our piles of bodies stack far, far higher than yours (even taking into account all of the dead from terrorism).

    So – if the New Testament supersedes the Old – what does that mean? Are you saying Christians should be pacifist? Then why aren’t you all disbanding your navies and armies and living like the Amish?

    difficulty accepting instruction from somebody else.

    I don’t, almost all of the muftis I have studied under are younger than me. But taking religious instructions on Islamic sciences from non-Muslims is invalid, as is hadith transmission, etc. Like I said – our religion, our party. You can opine all you like and non-Muslims are welcome to listen to you, but the old men (and sometimes women) that have sacrificed their entire lives in preserving and promoting this religion are the ones that count for us.

    It is statistically possible that you are NOT the smartest person in a given population.

    Oh I’m definitely not the smartest guy in the population. My wife is constantly reminding me of this. Again, as I said to the other person, please have mercy on us mentally challenged people – remember, what would Jesus (pbuh) do?

    MEFOBILLS: The most important way to deal with Islam is to have cuck pope Frannie announce it is a Christian heresy. Robert Spencer does great work, but as you can see it’s just back and forth. Robert Spencer will state a Koranic verse, and sura this and hadith that. Talha and Anonymous will come back with some counter arguments. Robert Spencer, a Catholic, needs the RCC to support his work. But this will not happen. And, of course, besides theological issues, the RCC has to deal with racial differences. But as I commented above, the RCC is in the process of Africanizing the RCC. It was going to be a black/Asian process, but China got in the way. The RCC was also looking to China to increase their base (more money), but the Chinese government stepped in took control of Chinese bishops. The Chinese government appoints RCC bishops. The Vatican didn’t like this and they said they made some deal to give the Vatican control, but it didn’t work out. China has severed ties with the RCC.

    The human animal is defective. That is why they are not disbanding.

    We CAN critique the wetware, the programming that goes into human brains. Islam is faulty wetware, and this can be proven scientifically, especially by the amount of psychopathic passages, and crucially by abrogation..

    In other words, a faulty creature has faulty wetware. That is why Islam is a time bomb waiting to go off. It has triggers built in.

    Most religions try to tame the savage beast that is man. Most religions try to lift up man, not tear him down. Talmudic Judaism, and Islam both do the opposite. They cloak their motives with crocodile smiles, preaching peace, but the opposite is the case – deception.

    In the modern era the west has been destructive in a capitalist rush to acquire the earths goods.. I maintain that the west has its mind colonized by a super parasite, and does not act in its own best interests. It is not religion that causes western man to war, but greed.

    I remind you, that in the expansive phase of Islam, it raped and pillaged and killed its way to subjugate masses, so you have no moral high ground.

    Hey MEFOBILLS,

    Most religions try to tame the savage beast that is man.

    Which is what Islam does precisely by regulating warfare. War is part of the human condition; thus – as Prof. Bernard Lewis pointed out in the video I posted – Islam has very defined rules for combat and – importantly – its limitations. As he mentioned; women, children, old, infirm, and non-combatants (there are differences of opinion when it comes to military-aged men) are off limits – even in siege warfare one can’t simply to postal and just raze the town to the ground. These rules have been outlined from the earliest writings on the subject. Did all Muslims follow this? Of course not – as you said; the human animal is defective. If that’s your cop out (especially with a religion that is purportedly pacifist), that’s ours too.

    Most religions try to lift up man, not tear him down.

    If you want to overlook all other aspects of Islam such as encouragement of charity, filial piety, traditional family, honesty is trade, etc. not to mention spiritual practices like prayer (some of us actually like communing with God five times a day) and fasting – that’s well and good, but why should we? You have a myopic view of the religion and want to judge it by a specific aspect of it
    (warfare) – which is actually completely marginal aspect as far as we’re concerned. I pulled off the Mukhtasar of Imam Quduri (ra) and checked; of about 700 pages of this wide ranging legal compendium, only around 20 are dedicated to various aspects of jihad.

    I’ve come across many converts in my life and not one became Muslim because of the concept of jihad. However, they were content that there were reasonable rules of conduct and (importantly) that the ulema of our age are simply on board with the current international protocols of interstate conduct. I asked you a simple question; name me the institutions or our traditional scholars that are asking to break down the current laws and return to the medieval era. If it’s as clear as you say it is, you should be able to come up with a list of 10 within minutes. Thousands of ulema around the world denounced Daesh shortly after they raised their flags. The only ones insisting that we Muslims must abide by rules in a 13th century Shafi’i fiqh manual in the time of international criminal courts, embassies, etc. are people like you and our Salafi-Wahhabi extremists (who think people like Imam Nawawi [ra] are apostates – LOL!). Neither of whom we have much regard for listening to.

    For example; the island of Bali is in the Indonesian archipelago and is full of Hindus with a measly population of around 4 million of them (less than 2% of the population). Indonesia is mostly run by the Shafi’i school and has always been. According to fatwa of that school, the Hindus should be running for their lives – their men killed and women and children enslaved since they are polytheist. But the ulema have simply adopted the rulings of the Hanafi and Maliki schools in that regard as have the majority of governments.

    It is not religion that causes western man to war, but greed.

    OK – religion should be stopping him – why isn’t it? This is a legitimate question because you can virtue signal about pacifist doctrine, but it doesn’t help the thousands upon thousands that have had their cities laid to waste. We have our extremists and you have yours – please get yours under control while we do the same, because apparently some haven’t gotten the pacifist message and their body count far exceeds these pin prick terrorist attacks in the West:
    “What’s also sad is that many in the audience at the church applauded right after Johnson said he wants to nuke Syria. In fact, ‘the crowd roared with applause,’ according to a report in the non-partisan Roll Call publication that covers Capitol Hill.”

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2005/03/02/texas-republican-congressman-quot-nuke-syria-quot/

    The Catholic Church especially resisted usury up until the middle ages.

    Yeah – you guys dropped the ball on that one. We are desperately trying not to do the same.

    I remind you, that in the expansive phase of Islam, it raped and pillaged and killed its way to subjugate masses, so you have no moral high ground.

    Look, this is comic book history because I can say the same sweeping statement about Christian history. As with Christian history which covered centuries and multiple empires, one has to ask details; which empires, which armies and which time? The Rashidun Caliphate had an impeccable record for Late Antiquity standards (they did not rape and pillage) and they form the basis of our praxis – the rest are judged by whether or not they lived up to those ideals or not. Many Muslim conquering leaders and armies were sorely lacking in standards and they will be called to account in front of God for their actions. I even recognize that Crusader states were not monolithic; some fought with high standards of conduct and some were absolutely wretched butchers (not even having the decency to spare fellow Orthodox Christians). The Dutch were far better than the Spanish who were pretty brutal. If I can make distinctions, others can be mature enough to do the same.

    So we can go round and round about how Muslims invaded Europe and then Europe invaded the Muslim world and on and on and play this silly game of your atrocity is bigger than mine – or we can thank God that we have a reasonable (even if imperfect) international framework and try to make things work.

    It will be the death of the west

    I’m a reasonable guy. As I started on the beginning of this whole thread; Western nations have every right to make rules as their populations like. No more immigration? Fine. Kick out Muslims? Fine. Let’s just keep it legal – I’m not begging to stay, if a majority of my fellow citizens want to ship me and my family back, that’s fine. I outlined a game plan to make it happen. There is also another another option that is far less drastic than stripping Muslims of citizenship and forcible removal – remember, this is not theory, this is not a video game – you will have to get buy out from the public at large. You can try to amend Article #6 of the Constitution and make sure a religious test is required for seeking office. That way you can restrict Muslims from holding government positions. If you can’t get this done, I hardly think you can seriously think of forced removal programs – gotta walk before you can run.

    Of course you’ll have to drop the virtue signalling and lecturing about exact equal rights under a secular democracy, but, hey, we don’t care about that so why should you?

    internecine war

    Again, you hardly need Islam for that. The West is quite capable of pretty bloody results without Islam; see WW1 and WW2 for example. And in the 1990′s we all watched Yugoslavia fall apart and then read about how both Catholic Croats and Orthodox Serbs committed war crimes against each other. War is Europe’s continental sport – the fact that the border between Germany and France has been quiet for so long is not normal, it’s a historic anomaly. As I’ve said to others; maybe it’s a good thing if Muslims get kicked out – it’s been a hell of a long time since Europe had one of its good ole lay-waste-to-each-others-cities fests. Maybe it’s time for us to clear the field before the referee blows the whistle.

    I’m starting to read more about Indian history. This is because of Savitri Devi. Also, I read a book, The Secret History of the World by Mark Booth. It’s about the occult but gave me a new perspective. Also, India has an Aryan past. Malaysia does not so they don’t matter. Ancient Egypt is fascinating because it was built by Caucasians. Present day Egypt is gone because the people are black. Yes, Islam forces conversion by the sword and it was a good thing for the British to take over India. Present day India may be an imperfect democracy but it is a much better country than China.

    For me, my commenting is focused on IQ because this is the best way to shift thinking. We know what destroyed ancient Egypt and India, mixing with blacks/Asians. First we need separation. The problem in the West is that the RCC/Zioevangizers refuse to see the truth. If your IQ is 89 or less, there is no hope for you. And most people with low IQs are black/Asian. IQ is the starting point for all conversations to save the West. Then we can point out what happened to ancient Egypt and India, and the best way to avoid what happened to them. Also, people need to prod the RCC and have it announce that Islam is a Christian heresy. If they refuse, it is time to close down RCC churches. The RCC will be of no use.

    We can dream right? In fact he is a great figure for our contemporary situation in that he led by example (and left us a legacy) of how to deal with rebels and especially the uncompromising ones like the Kharijites. Much of the rules regarding rebellion derive from him.

    When the Kharijites pronounced him an apostate, he refused to do the same to them, saying simply: “They are our brothers who transgressed against us, so we fought them for their transgression.”

    Even on his death bed, he told his sons to not execute his assassin (as per qisas) unless he actually died from the attack.

    Oh sure – as a matter of placing your belief on it – absolutely. It’s shooting from the hip or believing in a “hadith” with no verifiable chain of transmission.

    As a matter of speculation, well – why not?

    Well, because it doesn’t actually tell you very much, and the whole thing is largely a fluff piece. Nothing wrong with fluff as long as the fact that it is fluff is kept firmly in mind.

    As to Church dogma, there is no obligation so far as I know to believe anything in any detail about the physical appearance of Christ. However, a strong presumption exists that the Shroud of Turin gives a fairly accurate portrait. It conveys of course no information (except for DNA which is I think problematic) about skin coloration, but if one is really interested in this sort of thing we do have synagogue portraits of contemporary Jews (and possibly grave portraits in Alexandria? I never really looked into it) which do not so far as I know show a really wide range and so should give a general idea.

    I would imagine that to be the case. It’s essentially interested in spiritual salvation and he was a very, very spiritual messenger. People are trying to retrofit an essentially spiritual belief onto an increasing materialistic society – it seems bipolar to me.

    Wow – did they really recover DNA from it??!! Like enough to do a gene sequencing? That would be pretty awesome! Any links to this info?

    No, I don’t think so. Here’s a starter, fairly recent: http://www.shroud.com/pdfs/kearse3.pdf . Also see http://www.shroud.com/faq.htm#6 which is not dated. It does appear some sequences were obtained but mostly what was established was that there was too much contamination to determine anything. That whole site (www.shroud.com), maintained by Barrie Schwortz, seems generally reliable for shroud-related stuff, though I’m not much qualified to judge.

    edit:
    How accurate or confident are people about the shroud?
    In general and at least in my case there is a very strong presumption of its authenticity, which seems to be borne out by the scientific work done. It’s not an article of faith though.

    WW1 was promoted by the Usurious parasites as discussed before. The West is not Christian, it is State Sponsered Usury. This state sponsered Usury was not a Western Creation, it was an usurpation. Yugoslavia was a manipulation by the ((usual)) suspects. Remember the U.S. brain is parasitized. A proper West would have sided with Orthodox Serbs, and not Bosnian Muslims. Consider also that the Khazar neo-cons have a distaste for Russia. Allowing in this immigrant group starting in 1880 was a disaster, in the same way letting in Islamic hoards is a disaster in the making.

    Hungary had a Constitutional Kingdom that lasted a 1000 years. They struggled to keep Islamic hoards at bay though. During that thousand year period was a time of flourishing civilization for them.

    Islam isn’t going away, it is an aggressor. Islam is in “eat them from the inside” mode now, not overt arms.

    Here is a deception quote.
    Consider Abdelwahab Houzi, a Salafi jihadist preacher in the Catalan city of Lleida who adheres to the radical Wahhabi sect of Islam. He recently declared: “Muslims should vote for pro-independence parties, as they need our votes. But what they do not know is that, once they allow us to vote, we will all vote for Islamic parties because we do not believe in left and right. This will make us win local councils and as we begin to accumulate power in the Catalan autonomous region, Islam will begin to be implemented.”

    Hey MEFOBILLS,

    Look, you can blame Jews all you want, but if you have and institutional failure in keeping adverse or different ideologies from taking over the ship of state/finance then that is a systemic failure and that is YOUR FAULT. You cannot virtue signal over being a civilization that lets everyone at the table and allows everyone exact equal opportunity and then complain when someone takes over and pushes it in a direction that you don’t approve of – it is inane. If some group keeps gaming the system (for which you defined the rules) in contradiction to your interests, then you have a bad system. Choose one or the other; either stop tooting your horn and change the system or stop whining that someone plays the game better than you – it is unbecoming.

    We get flak for having rules that do not allow non-Muslim minorities to attain past a certain level of position in the government and the military – but you are bearing witness to the wisdom in our approach. Anybody can have full franchise in our lands – all they do is convert and full enfranchisement is immediate, irrespective of race or ethnicity – why? Because they are on board with the spiritual program and our worldview.

    A proper West would have sided with Orthodox Serbs, and not Bosnian Muslims.

    You are thinking of Kosovo. I was talking about Yugoslavia’s initial collapse. Forget the Muslim side – why were the Catholic Croats and Orthodox Serbs committing war crimes against each other? If you understand this, then you can understand why something similar happened with Sunnis and Shias after the collapse of the Iraqi state.

    They struggled to keep Islamic hoards at bay though.

    And then they eventually integrated Bosnian Muslims as one of their elite military units:
    “The Bosniaks, who were seen as an elite group within the k.u.k. Army and who – with their strange uniform and fez headgear – attracted much attention from the various formations of the Austro-Hungarian Army, are the focus of the book…Feared by their enemies, respected by their comrades for their fighting spirit, the Bosnian-Herzegovinian troops were a reliable component of the Austro-Hungarian Army until the end of the First World War.”

    http://www.naval-military-press.com/emperor-s-bosniaks-the-bosnian-herzegovinian-troops-in-the-k.-u.-k.-army.html

    “The trustworthiness of the Muslim Bosnian soldiers in the first world war – the 2nd Bosniaken won more medals for bravery than any other unit – further dissipated the old terrors.”
    The Enemy at the Gate: Habsburgs, Ottomans, and the Battle for Europe

    Islam isn’t going away

    No, it is not. Once the Salafi-Wahhabi problem starts dying down they’ll stop taking up all the air time and attention and we can get serious as the Sufi Orders start kicking in. Man, the breathing room will be nice!

    Islam is in “eat them from the inside” mode now, not overt arms.

    Listen, I’ll be frank. I’m not here to try to “take over”. I’m here because my parents brought me. I really don’t know if I would have gone through the effort to come here myself because they came for economic opportunities, but that is simply not my priority in life. But I do feel blessed to live in the US and hope the best for it and its people, even if I get kicked out – the Earth is vast, God will provide for me elsewhere.

    I have about 30+ years left in me and then I’m checking out of this place to move on to the next world. The biggest concern I have is in ensuring my children have a solid foundation on their faith – it is far more important than whether they make it big in the world or not and I am investing money and effort into teaching them the religion. I have four kids, and they will likely have three or more inshaAllah. It’s not that traditional Muslims like myself have any crazy designs to take over – I honestly avoid politics and the last man I voted for was Ron Paul. My spiritual teacher completely doesn’t even care or encourage us to get into politics or vote – he changes the subject. He just wants us to fix ourselves and be good to our neighbors and our local communities. It’s just that if we simply do the things normal, functional human beings have been doing for centuries – we’ll end up on top by default because everyone else is dysfunctional. Not because we aimed for it, but because everyone else is simply not making faith and family their priority. I forget who said this, but it basically sums it up; “The future belongs to those who bother to show up.”

    As for those Muslims who are coming in and causing problems and harming the citizenry of their host country – you have my permission to go full Shariah on them. There is no need to coddle criminal Muslim elements or treat them with kids gloves – punish harshly, rinse, repeat.

    a Salafi jihadist preacher

    Seriously, bro? Are you going to tell me you haven’t read a word that I’ve been saying? For the love of…I hope other people have been reading it, because it took me a while to type it out.

    I am about as happy regarding Salafi-jihadis taking over as you are – I belong to a Sufi Order, I’m not even sure they consider me a Muslim.

    Like I said before – if you truly, seriously feel we are an existential threat that will end the West (or US) as you know it – then what the hell are you doing wasting time with me on the Internet??!! Get up – start making calls, start organizing and push for a change to Article #6. That should be your priority above and beyond any other political issue – period. Are you going to wait until we are like 10% of the population or something? Otherwise this is just foolishness.

    Peace.

    Atilla,

    You need to read more, and visit places, but admit I never visit India,

    If going there, and eating outside big hotels and boring western fast-food chains, big chance of exotic gut infections, one friend who was going there on the way to England, picked up so many diseases and parasites, she was so ill by arrival in London, and collectinp such a variety, they were treating her as a research subject at the London tropical disease centre, gratis.

    I am not liking RCC Pope Francis at all, nor JPII (his writing, though, good, his role in Cold War attack, no-), but RC in Japan is alright to good in general. Not in the senses of western rubbish now.

    I think I’ve done ok. I went to the University of Vienna. I speak German and Spanish. I’ve been to several countries in Western Europe 3 times and I managed to go to Russia once. I’ve been to Mexico. I went to Israel for Christmas. I would like to travel more but I only have so much money. I want to learn more languages but I’m going through tough times right now. I read as much as possible, but again I only have so much time. Hope springs eternal, i.e., winning the lottery so that I don’t have to worry about money.

    But a couple of things I do know from my travels. The West is best. Caucasian Christians/neopagans are the best. An IQ of 90+ is the only way to understand world. The ultimate enlightenment will come after death.

    Mohamned,

    desire for prepubescents, what a joke the whole is, Islam is, at its root, satanic.

  281. @Che Guava

    I didn’t detect any insults.

    Savitri Devi is a little odd, but still interesting. Another fascinating woman is Madame Helena Blavatsky. She did things at a time when while life was difficult for men, it was even more difficult for women. I read about the occult because that is one way of dealing with our present problems. There is a book “The Secret History of the World” by Mark Booth which gives a good history of the occult. When I read it, it cleared up many mysteries about the world and helped me to understand my Christian faith better.

    Neo-pagans who practice white magic are not Satanists. Satanists though are just Democrats – they believe in gay marriage, changing genders and other nonsense. My starting points for any conversations and how to find out what people really think is: I believe in IQ and evolution and my Christianity and politics are based on the first two. Also, I don’t believe in universal brotherhood. This evil, oxymoronic belief is what is destroying the West. This is the basis of Freemasonry and the universal church.

    We will reconquer Western Europe. Here is a youtube about Christmas in Hungary.

    Good point, iffen!

    I did not mean that as a pejorative, rather as a qualifier. Some Evangelicals are certainly ignorant and you can dupe them pretty easily. Some Evangelicals know quite a bit about Islam and have invested the time to look into it as an academic pursuit. Some pastors have had their flock come to openly and honestly dialogue with qualified Muslim scholars to ask them; well, what do you guys say?

    One of my favorites is Dr. James White who has both debated and had dialogues with Muslims. He has even debated other Christians, including Mr. Spencer, about using unprincipled gutter tactics to define Islam as one likes it. He has gotten a lot of flak about that.

    So, yes, I should have put some qualifying note in there or something because that could have been unnecessarily offensive. Thanks for the correction. :)
