Vive la Resistance: A Call to Arms!

20100812_CAIRstripesby SHARI  GOODMAN:

During World War II, in an effort to combat Nazi totalitariansm, men and  women of good will in France formed a resistance movement against the Nazis.  They came to be known as the Resistance fighters who bravely fought against the  tide of the Nazi invasion. Today, once again there is a new growth of  totalitarian supremacist ideology in the name of Islam and it is presently  receiving protective status under the guise of religion; yet, today its  legitamacy is derived on our own soil. The definition of “Islam” is submission  and while we may state that we are not at war with Islam, Islam has declared war  on us.

Mein Kampf (My Struggle) was the instrumental book that incited Germans to  wage war against the Jews and incited millions in surrounding countries to  submit to its supremacist totalitarian quest for world domination. Not unlike  Mein Kampf, we now have on American soil an Islamic doctrine (Quran) that  commands its practioners to wage war against all non-believers until Islam  reigns supreme. “Slay the pagans(Christians) wherever ye find them and seize  them, confine them, and lie in wait for them in every place of ambush” (Surah  9:5) and “So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief) and  all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).” (Quran: 8:39) These are just a few of the many passages littered throughout Quranic  doctrine with the call for Jihad. Unlike Judeo/Christian doctrine, the violence  in Quranic doctrine is instructional violence without a specific time frame.  Those of us in today’s Resistance Coalition have been referred to as  Islamophobics, bigots, racists, and hatemongers, but in an upside down world it  is we who are combatting the hate spewed by a doctrine that places all  non-believers in what is referred to in Islam as Dar Al Harb (the House of War).  Yes, the Quran segrated the world into Dar Al Islam (the House of Islam) and Dar  Al Harb, reserved for all non-Muslims.

For the first time in American history we are providing a sanctuary to a  doctrine that seeks our demise. The Quran which commands each Muslim to slay the  unbelievers wherever they may find them is housed in every mosque. There are now  over 2000 mosques funded by Saudi Arabian oil money throughout the United  States. The colonization by the Umma (prosletyzation) is encouraged and financed  by oil money and it matters not one iota that not all Muslims are Jihadists. It  is a threat and affront to our existence and liberty that we give sanctuary to a  dangerous doctrine that calls for our submission at best and slaughter at  worst.

Condescending Arrogance Combined With Ignorance

Citizen Warrior:

IN AN ARTICLE in the Huffington Post, Nancy Graham Holm wrote one of the most idiotic articles I’ve seen in awhile, and she did it with an appalling degree of arrogance. The article is entitled, Three Questions to Ask Geert Wilders About Anti-Islam Hate Speech. Her point is that when Geert Wilders talks about Islam, he only causes problems and doesn’t help anything.

Holm takes it for granted that limiting (or God forbid, STOPPING) Muslim immigration to a Western nation is such a ridiculous notion it is not even worth arguing about. Wilders has suggested in many times, and with good reason, but she dismisses it as an idea unworthy of consideration.

She first says that some Muslims out there are so “short-fused” that they “would rather kill and be killed than tolerate Wilders’ brutal humiliation.” When I read that, it startled me. I am in the middle of reading Unbroken right now, the true story of an American captured by the Japanese in World War II. He was deliberately starved for years, tortured, brutally beaten almost every day, and intentionally humiliated. THAT was brutal humiliation. A politician talking about the hate-filled passages of Islamic texts may be insulting, but “brutal humiliation” goes way overboard. That was in her first paragraph.

It gets worse.

Her grasp of Islamic doctrine is basically non-existent, and yet she writes about the issue with a condescending arrogance that defies comprehension. She mentions an opinion piece Wilders wrote wherein he suggests outlawing the Koran in the Netherlands. “Mein Kampf” is outlawed, says Wilders, because of its Jew hatred. If the Dutch are to be consistent, then, the Koran should be outlawed.

Nancy Graham Holm, of course, thinks this is “provocative” and clearly believes the allegations are preposterous. Of course, she doesn’t have a clue about the work of Bill Warner, who simply counted up how many incidents of Jew hatred are in Islamic texts and Mein Kampf. What did he find? There is far MORE Jew hatred in Islamic texts than Mein Kampf, so Wilders has a point and Holm should be embarrassed. Check out the proportions:

Another provocative thing Wilders said was that Muhammad was a “barbarian, a mass murderer and a pedophile.” According to Islamic history, and using our modern definitions of barbarism, mass murder, and pedophilia, Wilders is simply stating a fact. She is assuming it can’t possibly be true (or that facts that some would consider provocative should not be spoken in public, in which case Holm should be silent because she is definitely provoking me).

I agree with her about one thing, though. It would be a terrible thing to say if it weren’t true. However, she could easily discover for herself that Wilders is speaking accurately. The information is available in every bookstore. The information is not difficult to find at all. It is not a secret. And it can be found in Islamic texts themselves, not mean non-Muslims writing about Islam in order to denigrate it.

It sometimes feels as if I’m in a crazy world where someone can write an article ABOUT Islam without knowing the first thing about Islam, all the while criticizing someone who knows a lot about Islam, and criticizing what he says about Islam! And all this published in a well-known, well-respected, mainstream magazine, who no doubt have fact-checkers on staff. How does this happen? How is it possible? Have I fallen into a rabbit hole and don’t know it?

Holm writes, “Geert Wilders does not acknowledge the profound reform movement that is under way in contemporary Islam.” I have been studying and writing about Islam for ten years. While I am aware of some Islamic reformers, characterizing it as a “profound reform movement” is stretching it. The problem, which Holm is apparently unaware of, is that “reforming” Islam means to deny or reject a substantial amount of basic Islamic doctrine such as the 527 unabrogated passages in the Koran advocating intolerance or violence toward non-Muslims, or the 91 passages telling Muslims they must take Muhammad as an example (a “beautiful pattern of conduct“), which means a reformer who would wish to create an Islam that is no longer a threat to non-Muslims would have to seriously edit the Koran or seriously edit the Sunnah and Hadith, which are mostly about Muhammad’s egregious example. And such editing is strictly forbidden since the Koran is the word of Allah.
