The rope

The capitalists will sell us the rope
with which we will hang them.
-- Vladimir Lenin

Terrorist plots, sponsored by affiliates of The Religion That Must Not Be Named, have graduated from summer stock in the Middle East to a worldwide stage. Every Western nation is now struggling to come to terms with the promise of deliberate attacks on civilians; see here, here, and here. Tomorrow's news will bring another crop of such stories.

Yes, yes, for the umpteenth time: most Muslims are not terrorists. I am sure that many Muslims, both in their traditional homelands and (probably somewhat less) in their immigrant beachheads in the West, disapprove of the nutters who pursue jihad by blowing themselves and assorted bystanders into fragments. Right, we've got  that straight. It doesn't mean that Muslim colonists want anything less than Muslim domination of their adopted lands. They just prefer that it be done gradually, through population increase.

Why do Western countries roll over and offer their bellies to this insurgency (while making a big show of "security")? It's often said, and I agree, that the Left welcomes any force that will help bring down its hated capitalism.

Well, I'm capitalist-friendly -- it's a rum system, but slightly better than any other economic system I have ever heard of. But there's a dark side to it: business can't think beyond immediate profit. Faced with hispanic border jumpers or Muslim triumphalists, it knows only one response, like an animal that acts purely by instinct: Yay, a new market!
In the ballroom of an upscale hotel a short train ride from New York, advertisers, food industry executives and market researchers mingled — the men in dark suits, the women in headscarves and Western dress. Chocolates made according to Islamic dietary laws were placed at each table.

The setting was the American Muslim Consumer Conference, which aimed to promote Muslims as a new market segment for US companies. While corporations have long catered to Muslim communities in Europe, businesses have only tentatively started to follow suit in the US— and they are doing so at a time of intensified anti-Muslim feeling that companies worry could hurt them, too. American Muslims seeking more acknowledgment in the marketplace argue that businesses have more to gain than lose by reaching out to the community.
 Sell. Sell. Sell.

Sell your country. Your freedom. Your civilization. 

Enjoy your profits while you can, dhimmis.

But they have no theological grounds to object to jihad, so whatever objections they have are either unprincipled exceptions or the result of being more secular in outlook (cultural Moslems). Or they're simply engaging in taqiyya.

We can never know when Moslems are being truthful or when they're lying. Besides, it seems like whenever there is a jihadist attack in a Western country the response of the "moderates" is to demand more power for local imams and funding for mosques, so that the younger generations don't become "radicalized." The jihadists are the infantry and the "moderates" are the engineers, two parts of the same army.

The profound problem of Muslim immigration

The subversion against our societies is executed by relatively few immigrants. Most immigrants from Islamic countries do not come to the West in order tor transform free Western countries into semblances of the autocracies or theocracies they have fled from. They seek better living conditions, employment, a better future – but they do so without the intention to change their religion, and this is where things get complicated.

Retaining faith in Islam and Islamic scholars will lead the immigrants to tacitly support the subversive aims of Islamists who have also come to the West, initially as a relatively small fraction of millions of Islamic immigrants. These Islamic leaders and scholars use the Islamic teachings to destroy confidence in Western democracies, and they are astonishingly effective in achieving that aim.

Explaining how this seemingly irrational development can take place requires some history. This first and foremost means the life and conduct of Muhammad, the perfect example for the pious Muslim even today. The authority of Muhammad is absolute in Islam, be it in form of Quranic commands or the examples of conduct recorded in hadith collections, known in Islam as the 'Sunna'. Hijra, immigration, was a key element in Muhammads takeover of Yathrib, today known as Medina.

Unfortunately, the concept of Hijra is not limited in time or space to 7th century Arabia. The command as given is absolute, and remains an obligation on Muslims. One of many hadith quotes Muhammad for this:
I charge you with five of what Allah has charged me with: to assemble, to listen, to obey, to immigrate and to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah.

Thus, immigration is step four out of a five step plan. Sam Solomon elaborates:
So Hijra or migration is binding on all Muslims for numerous reasons; the most important being that migration is preparatory to jihad with an aim and objective of securing victory for Islam and Muslims either in another country or generally as a community.

And from Jihad Watch

The massive, catastrophic problem that is the presence of tens of millions of Muslims in Europe is finally dawning on the other citizens of that continent. Fitfully and unevenly, they are stirring themselves to find that they have invited a dangerous enemy into their home, who has no intention of leaving, or ceasing to act aggressively. Time will tell if this civilizational crisis will be solved by peaceful, lawful means, or the fate of Europe as a whole will mirror that of Kosovo--a province that as recently as 1900 was still majority Serbian and Christian. Indeed, with its ancient churches and monasteries, that region was the historic heart of the Serbian nation--the Balkan equivalent of Ile de France, Westminster, or Plymouth Rock.

Indeed, I think the real reason why NATO and the U.S. struck so hard at the Serbs in 1999 was to teach Europeans a lesson: When sharia comes, you will not be allowed to fight back. You are being displaced as the Serbs have been displaced. Attempt to resist, and this will be your fate. Of course, the real atrocities Serbs committed against Kosovar Muslims cannot be justified. Besides being evil, they were utterly futile; the battle for Kosovo had been fought decades before, and lost. The higher birthrate of Muslims was part of the story, but another part is too often forgotten: the role of the Communist Yugoslav government, which saw Serbian nationalism as a threat and sought to dilute it by purposely moving Muslims out of Albania and into Kosovo. (Read the melancholy story in Milica Bookman's The Demographic Struggle for Power--cogently reviewed here.)


I believe, that step by step, we are moving to a full scale war. The recent arrests of Jihadis in England, Denmark, Netherlands and the spate of deadly bombings of Christians in Nigeria and Egypt are simply enemy actions against those who they consider are our allies. Its to be expected.
