Islamists Have Declared War On Us
Reading the Spectator yesterday I realised that the general reporting of the press in this country has been hiding the truth from the public: Islamists have declared war on us. I know I could write Islamists have declared war on civilisation, but that’s not quite accurate, because if one subscribes to their viewpoint wherever one lives then one is exempt from their hatred (not that it bothers me). We need to recognise that fact, because even if their beliefs are laughable their actions are anything but. They follow the most extreme version of Islam and are determined to wage war as if we are living back in the 7th century. They have made pronouncements calling on Muslims throughout the entire world to attack those they claim are oppressing them. As their list of grievances is endless you will not be surprised they have set their minds on conquering as many people as they can. Rome is to fall under the jackboot of fundamentalist Islam, as is Spain, and many other places with whom one would assume they could have no quarrel. The ‘Caliph’ of the ‘Islamic State’ – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – has made the following pronouncement:
“Muslims’ rights are forcibly seized in China, India, Palestine, Somalia, the Arabian Peninsula, the Caucasus, the Levant, Egypt, Iraq, Indonesia, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Ahvaz, Iran, Pakistan, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria and Morocco, in the East and in the West [pretty comprehensive, but what about Antartica?] …. So raise your ambitions, O soldiers of the Islamic State! For your brothers all over the world are waiting for your rescue, and are anticipating your brigades.” The world is divided into ‘two trenches’, “the camp of Islam and faith, and the camp of disbelief and hypocrisy”. “The time has come for you to free yourself from the shackles of weakness, and stand in the face of tyranny, against the treacherous rulers – the agents of the crusaders and the atheists, and the guards of the Jews ….” “This is my advice to you. If you hold to it, you will conquer Rome and own the world, if Allah wills.”
Now before you start saying what a nice bloke he is and how you would like to present him with a new bomb vest, I should mention that he is not without admirers in this country. Behold, Breitbart London has discovered a few of his adherents shamelessly recommending we pursue the path of evil and self-destruction in the heart of the capital: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/08/12/ISIS-agitators-London. Ah, where would we be without multiculturalism!
I know there are a lot of readers out there who will say all religions are the same and that the events of 3,500 years ago described in the Old Testament are just the same as those today, however I would like to mention that Christianity begins with the New Testament and that Jesus very specifically defines what the unchanging law for Christians is to be:
Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him and saying,
“Master, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said unto him, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Gospel of Matthew, chapter 22, verses 35-40).
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know ye are my disciples, if ye have love to one another.” (Gospel of St John, chapter 13, verses 33-34.)
The brutal savagery of the Old Testament was common practise among ancient peoples – whether Egyptian, Assyrian or Babylonian. In war one sought to destroy all one’s opponents, even including their wives and children. Though ancient peoples had a habit of exaggerating their military achievements and boasting of completely exterminating their adversaries even when many remained alive, the homicidal intention was real. And it is that type of intention that has been brought into the present day by the soldiers of the ‘Islamic State’. Nevermind that the rest of the world has moved on in 3,500 years, they still believe that is the way to the truth – when of course it leads them all to Hell. Accordingly, they have been beheading children and adults, cutting children in half, raping and then enslaving women, crucifying their opponents, forcibly converting people at the point of a sword on the pain of death, and generally terrorising the population as all good demons are apt to do. I’ve not put links to these barbarities – there are actually thousands of images on the internet which will confirm what I say – as I think they are disrespectful to the dead, and too horrific to be viewed on an unrestricted website. Links are at the end of this article for those that want a sanitised view of the conflict. The horrific photographs of the slain can be found in many places on the internet without too great a prompting from myself. They are the actions of the damned, and they condemn their perpetrators to the utter destruction that will surely come to them.
The Islamists in Iraq view the words of the Koran as being the Word of God, which must be obeyed at all times. There is no space for ambiguity, for historical perspective, or adaptation to changing times. They choose from the numerous violent passages it contains and claim they are following divine guidance:
Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing… And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.”
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
Muslim (1:30) – “The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”
We are faced with unmitigated, murderous fanaticism. Britain is a home to all religions, and to atheists and agnostics. There is no legal discrimination between them. A person can say anything they like, when they like, within reason. But these ‘believers’ seek to destroy everything Britain stands for. Freedom, tolerance, intellectual curiosity, the rule of law, the rights of women, individualism and scientific rationality, are to be put to the sword if these Islamists come here. We must recognise them for who they are, and their doctrines for what they are: Islamists are the new Nazis and must be fought at every opportunity until they are utterly defeated and subdued. If, as it seems will be the case, they will not surrender, then they will have to be destroyed, even as the servants of the Third Reich were destroyed. We will need to arrest, prosecute and deport criminals; we will need to prevent them from airing their obnoxious views; we will need to suppress their supporters, and we will need to close every single avenue they can possibly go down to infiltrate the life of this country. There is no alternative. As they have said, we are at war.
