Islam — the ultimate umbrella organization for violent malcontents

Turban Bomb

As was to be expected (and all of you predicted), the media is rushing to indict . . . America for having failed to give two Chechen immigrant brothers the love they needed.  Because of this, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26 years old, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19 old, became disaffected losers longing to kill.  Or, as their uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Maryland, told reporters: “This has nothing to do with Chechnya.” Instead the Bomb Brothers were “losers — not being able to settle themselves [in America] and thereby just hating everyone who did.”

There’s your narrative:  this was just like Columbine all over again.  Islam was merely a religious bagatelle attached to two young men who would have been ticking time bombs regardless.  And most importantly as far as the Left is concerned, there’s no indication that these boys acted under al Qaeda’s guidance.  They were truly Americanized in that they were self-starters, arriving at terrorism due to their own disaffection and diligence.

To which I say, who cares about al Qaeda?  al Qaeda does not have to be involved in every attack before the bombing can be labeled as bona fide Islamic terrorism.  al Qaeda is just one head of the hydra.  It’s not the beast itself.

The problem is Islam — by which I don’t mean the garden-variety faith that millions of people practice as a party of their ordinary, non-hate-filled lives.  That’s a housebroken version of Islam, and I highly approve of it.

No, the problem is the very core of Islam — its Jihad element — which is a magnet for disaffected people.  The chicken and egg debate (i.e., which came first, Islam or disaffection?) is irrelevant.  The only thing relevant is that Islam comes last, right before the bomb explodes.  Whether Islam breeds terrorists or just provides an attractive justification for malevolent people doesn’t matter.  There it is, sitting like a big ticking egg, just waiting to go BOOM!

I’ve quoted my cousin, the former prison minister (Christian), dozens of times here, but I think it’s important to say again what he once wrote in an email to me:

It is not a contradiction to be a Muslim and a murderer, even a mass murderer. That is one reason why criminals “convert” to Islam in prison. They don’t convert at all; they similarly [sic] remain the angry judgmental vicious beings they always have been. They simply add “religious” diatribes to their personal invective. Islam does not inspire a crisis of conscience, just inspirations to outrage.

The core of Islam, which is built around Mohammad’s demands that his followers go forth and kill, both creates and attracts killers.  Until we address and de-fang Islam, there will always be “disaffected,” “lone wolves,” who just “coincidentally” have as their last words “Allahu Akhbar.”

    The Left wants to kill you before you are born, after you are born, and if that doesn’t work, enslave you.
     
    Your other choice in life is to be killed by Muslims or converted into a second class servant.
     
    This world has oh so many interesting options in life.

    I am inclined to give the Uncle a pass for his heartfelt narrative.  He was doing what anyone in their right mind would do in such a circumstance – put as much distance as possible between him and a family member who just committed mass murder in his now home country.  
     
    I could not agree with you more that al Qaeda is merely a symptom, or at times a veneer, over religiously inspired violence coming out of the Middle East.  I think where most people become confused is in trying to decide who are the house broken Muslims, to use your terminology, and who are the pool of Muslims from which violent individuals arise.  
     
    The answer is glaringly obvious – and indeed, after multiple wars and over two decades of violence directed at our nation by these people, it should be something every American from 10 to 100 ought to know.  It is from Wahhabi / Salafi Islam exported out of Saudi Arabia.  It infects every person it touches and, indeed, even other forms of Islam which it seeks to influence and, ultimately, replace.  Chechnya was ground zero for the Wahhabists in the 90′s, and I will be amazed to find anything other than the Wahhabist ideology as the guiding force behind the brothers Tsarmaev.  Indeed, early indications from youtube postings by the brothers would seem to show that, in fact, they were being influenced by Wahhabist clerics and teachings.
     
    We as a nation do no service to ourselves or to practitioners of Islam, including Wahhabi Islam, by covering this up, treating it as a truth never to be spoken.  When Bush held sway, I am convinced that he opted to gloss over this because of Saudi influence in the oil market.  With Obama in power, I am convinced the left glosses over this because it does nothing to advance their favored narratives and because they would happily make common cause with Islamists to advance their own cause of gaining and retaining power.  At any rate, the only solution to this problem begins with clearly identifying it.  That will not happen until the geo-political state of our world changes.  Until then, expect much more violence as we allow Wahhabi Salafi Islam to metastasize in the dark of ignorance.

    America can’t even solve its own problems right now. It’ll be a long time before people can recognize the truth about foreign enemies, when they don’t even know the truth about their own country.

    I’ve said this before, and I’m sorry about it, but there are no “housebroken” Muslims.  If part of the definition of being a Muslim is that you’re required to believe in that book, then there are no housebroken Muslims.  If belief in the book is the key, there are zero “good” ones, nor are there any “bad” ones: they are all the same.
     
    I have read their book.  I strongly suggest anyone who thinks it’s possible to separate out the “good” from the “bad” go and do likewise.  It is vengeful, blood-soaked, murderous – and even weird.  (“Yo – Ali!  Lah says gimme your 9 year old daughter.”  “Oh, really?  OK Moe, here she is.”  These are adults talking?  Really?) 
     
    We really need to grow up and disabuse ourselves of this notion that there can be Muslims who aren’t poisoned by Islam.  Otherwise this problem they represent is going to haunt the world until everybody but them is extinct.

    There’s a flurry of discussions on the Internet cautioning everybody about distinguishing between militant Muslims and good Muslims.
     
    The problem for me, as jj points out, is that if “housebroken” Muslims existed, at best they’d be the equivalent of Good Germans. They might abhor the depravities done in their name, but they would hardly rise up against them. Most Muslims, like most titular Christians and Jews, are lukewarm about their faith. However, unlike the practitioners of their sister monotheisms, “moderate” Muslims who speak up usually end up dead or severely maimed.
     
    They have no defenders nor abettors anywhere. The UN is dominated by mouth-breathing Jew haters (in other words, orthodox Muslims), and the left will only cast its lot with the most vile forms of Islam. So the idea that hosts of meek and tame Muslims will finally have their fill and oust the Wahabists, Farrakhans, and Iranian mullahs is a pipe dream.

    Charles Martel (and jj) write:

    I agree, but with a caveat: I don’t blame the vast majority of Muslims.  They’re just like the vast majority of everybodyL They will simply get along to go along with whoever is “in charge”.  You can call this vast majority of people sheep, but all they’re really doing is living uneventful, unexamined lives, following the path of least resistance.
     
    But the unthinking Muslim masses do so with an Islamic belief system that urges murderous violence more than most philosophies or religions.  And those who are “in charge” these days are, unfortunately, committed believers in violent jihad and terrorism, universal sharia and dhimmitude for all unbelievers.
     
    I agree we cannot hope for Islam to reform itself.  The reformers lack the will, they lack the influence, and most importantly, they lack the money.  The Saudis have seen to that, exporting violent Wahhabism/Salafism throughout the world via billions of dollars and a variety of institutions, and mosques and imams that preach this virulent, dangerous form of Islam.  They are ascendant, and the reformers cannot stop them.
     
    It will be up to the unbelievers to stop them.  At this point we lack a clarity of focus and a refusal to identify the enemy.  And we lack the will.  Fortunately there is a lot of time.

    If we did not depend upon Mid Eastern oil, their funds would dry up, over a generation or so, and they’d go back to being desert-dwelling goat, um, botherers. They were in the 19th century, and had been, for the most part,  since Lepanto. The Turks, such a menace at Lepanto, and briefly, at the gates of Vienna in the 17th century, had become the Sick Man of Europe.The Muslim dependence on oil revenue is probably the reason behind efforts to block American energy independence. Most of the Third-World regards Western environmentalism as a scam. They just think it is an imperialist scam, rather than a Marxist one.
     
    The Third World is, really by its definition, Guardian dominant.  They think of empires as Guardian (tributary) empires, and can not comprehend the difference in Commercial empires, which do not grow richer by impoverishing anyone else, but through trade, which, if it is free, i.e. non-coercive, enriches both parties.
     
    Don’t understand the terms ‘Guardian’ and ‘Commercial’?  Read Systems of Survival, by the late Jane Jacobs.

    “So the idea that hosts of meek and tame Muslims will finally have their fill and oust the Wahabists, Farrakhans, and Iranian mullahs is a pipe dream. ”
     
    That’ll be a more realistic goal when Americans can oust their own fascist and socialist elements. If we can’t even do it backed by arms and the US Constitution, how are a bunch of poor, illiterate, sheep herders going to do it.
