Islam 101, I'm an Islamophobe in the same way that I am a Naziphobe, and so should you be if you have any sense.

BY: ManoftheWest

The first and most important thing to be said about Islam is that it is totally incompatible with Western Civilisation. Islam cannot, under any possible circumstances ever be compatible or consistent with Western Civilisation – the very notion that it can is, literally, impossible and anyone who maintains it is either:
  • Hopelessly ignorant of the history, doctrines and practice of Islam, or
  • A liar who intends you, your family and everyone you know harm.
Let’s start by disposing of one of the most widely promulgated, yet most obviously absurd falsehoods regarding Islam, which can be summed up as follows: “Islam is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists who pervert the true, peaceful teachings of Islam; the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful.”

“Islam is a religion of peace” – No, it’s not. The most cursory exercise of rational thought should be enough to bury this lie:
  • With the possible exceptions of Mexico and North Korea, the most violent and dysfunctional countries in the world are all either Islamic or have a sizeable Muslim population.
  • There are Islamic wars of aggression and terrorist campaigns going on right now in: Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Somalia, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Nigeria, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Chad, Zanzibar, Thailand, Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Chechnya, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Xinjiang.
  • Almost all terrorist groups in the world are explicitly Islamic. Nobody is being delayed for hours at airports, having their nail clippers and shampoo confiscated and then being felt-up by bored security personnel because militant Methodists have a tendency to hijack planes.
  • In both war and terrorism (in Islam it’s all the same) Muslims clearly, plainly, explicitly and consistently explain and justify their actions with orthodox Islamic doctrine. Try naming any Christian counterpart.
  • In all the current Islamic wars and terrorism, the victims are other Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Animists, Secular States and Atheists. The one thing that all these different conflicts have in common is Islam.
  • Individuals, organisations and governments are afraid to debate or discuss the unsavoury nature of Islam because Muslims have shown time and time again that they will murder people who do. This is unarguable by any honest person. Further, the de facto implementation of sharia through “hate speech” laws in the suicidal West and the almost universal cowardice regarding speaking honestly about Islam for fear of being thought a “racist” or “islamophobe” or, at the least, “not nice” means very few people are ever exposed to rational, factual, evidence-based discussion of Islam.
“Islam is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists” – No, it’s not and, no, it hasn’t:
  • Look again at the list of countries where Muslims are waging war against anyone not Muslim or not sufficiently Muslim; that’s a lot of manpower. It’s, also, an awful lot of very different countries in which to find the same “tiny minority of extremists”.
  • As stated above, Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hizballah, ISIS, Islamic Jihad, Palestine Liberation Front, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, etc, etc, (it’s a VERY long list), ALL state categorically that they are beheading, bombing, shooting, stabbing, raping, kidnapping and selling infidel children into sex-slavery for the greater glory of Allah and back it up with numerous scripturally and (in Islamic terms) theologically correct references from orthodox, mainstream Islam. They do not cite fringe, lunatic interpretations of Islamic teaching but the original sources – the Koran, Hadith (the sayings and doings of Mohammed) and the Sunna (the life of Mohammed).
  • Lee Rigby’s cowardly murderers quoted directly from the Koran on camera no less than 22 times after hacking him to death and attempting to decapitate him to ‘explain’ and ‘justify’ their act; shortly after, the world renowned Islamic scholar and Koranic exegete, David Cameron, informed us piously that, “There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act”
  • Bearing that last point in mind, the Jihadists (those who actually do the beheading, bombing, etc) are following exactly the same teachings with exactly the same interpretations as the, so-called, “moderate Muslims”. So, the only difference between “moderate Muslims” and “a tiny minority of extremists” is the means they choose to employ, they both share the same end, i.e. total global conquest.  The linked article below expands on this vitally important point: http://www.meforum.org/3802/moderate-islam
“Islam is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists who pervert the true, peaceful teachings of Islam” – No, it’s not. No, it hasn’t and, no, they don’t:
  • The vast majority of Westerners know absolutely nothing about Islam and yet come out with idiotic statements like the one above all the time. How many people who make these factually incorrect, vacuous, politically correct statements are even slightly familiar with the Koran (in more than one translation), The Hadith Qudsi, Hadith Sahih Bukhari, Sirat Rasul Allah and the Umdat al-Salik?  Answer: Usually, none.  What very few Westerners know or understand is that, unlike the Bible, the Koran is not organised chronologically; the chapters, Sura, are arranged from the longest to the shortest. It was written in two sections, the first written in Mecca, the “Meccaniya” when Mohammed had only a handful of followers and no real influence.  It is in this section you will find most of the ‘peaceful’ verses of the Koran. Having said that, the famous and often quoted, “Let there be no compulsion in religion” 2:256, was written shortly after Mohammed arrived in Medina but before he had established his power-base.
  • The second section of the Koran was written in Medina, the “Mediniya” when Mohammed had rapidly become a powerful military and political leader. This section contains almost all the violent verses outlining Islam’s permanent mission of divinely sanctioned global conquest and the subjugation of all non-believers worldwide.
  • The key point about this dual nature of the Koran’s contents comes to light once you know about the doctrine of “Abrogation” (al-nāsikh wal-mansūkh). This doctrine is just one of many features that make Islam truly unique among world religions.  Put simply, abrogation means that Allah can change his mind, issuing a command – through Mohammed, naturally – that, literally, is the exact opposite of a previous command. The “revelation” made later supersedes and abrogates the previous “revelation”…….forever.
  • ALMOST ALL of the violent, supremacist verses in the Koran come after the Meccaniya and, thereby, abrogate them, forever, especially Sura 9 verse 5, known as “The verse of the Sword”, which is regarded by most Islamic scholars as either the last or next to last of all Allah’s “revelations” to Mohammed: "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them." 
To explain:“slay” means kill. “idolaters” means anyone not Muslim. “wherever you find them” means just that i.e. all non-Muslims everywhere. “take them captive” means kidnap and use as slaves. “lie in wait for them in every ambush” means to pre-emptively use sneak-attacks. “if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them." means, “if they convert to Islam, let them go”.  Throughout Islamic history this verse has been interpreted as an open-ended commission to conquer the whole world for Islam, it is still interpreted that way today and accepted as such by all schools of Islam, Sunni or Shia.  And we can see this verse being obeyed to the letter by Muslims all over the world every single day.  Because of the ‘jumbled-up’ assembly of the Koran, the violent and ‘tolerant’ verses are mixed together, leaving the average non-Muslim, with no knowledge of the Meccaniya, Mediniya or the doctrine of abrogation, unable to make any sense of it at all.
“Islam is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists who pervert the true, peaceful teachings of Islam; the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful” - No, it’s not. No, it hasn’t. No, they don’t and, no, they aren’t and, even if they were, it would be irrelevant:
Bearing in mind the point made earlier, the Jihadists (those who actually do the beheading, bombing, etc) are following exactly the same teachings with exactly the same interpretations as the, so-called, “moderate Muslims”.  So, the only difference between “moderate Muslims” and “a tiny minority of extremists” is the means they choose to employ, they both share the same end, i.e. total global conquest. We can see that “peaceful” Muslims can only be one of three things:
  • Muslims who choose (at present) to use non-violent means to achieve a position where violence will be successful later on the way to world conquest.
  • Muslims who are ignorant of the basic teachings of Islam.
  • Muslims who choose to ignore the basic teachings of Islam and are, therefore, no longer Muslims.
There have been a very large number of polls taken of Muslim populations all over the world; the results are remarkably consistent. Averaged out across all countries, between 15% and 25% of Muslims actively support warfare and terrorism in the cause of Jihad. In officially Islamic countries, that figure is far higher. There are approximately 1.6 billion Muslims, that means between 240 and 400 million Muslims actively approve of and support Jihad. 240 million is almost four times the population of the U.K., 400 million is greater than the total population of the U.S. Yes, that is a ‘minority’ of the world’s Muslims, but does that make you feel any safer? The German population at the start of WWII was around 80 million – the total population of the Axis Countries (Germany, Japan, Italy) was around 174 million in 1939.
Just look at history; every totalitarian movement that has ever existed was propelled by “a tiny minority of extremists” and enabled by a vast “peaceful” majority:
  • The Jacobins and the sans-culottes were a tiny minority; the vast majority of French were peaceful.
  • The Nazis were a tiny minority; the vast majority of Germans were peaceful.
  • The Bolsheviks were a tiny minority; the vast majority of Russians were peaceful.
  • The Chinese Communists were a tiny minority; the vast majority of Chinese were peaceful.
  • The Bushido military cultists were a tiny minority; the vast majority of Japanese were peaceful.
  • The “vast majority of peaceful Muslims” are, at best, irrelevant and, at worst, the enablers of the, anything but, “tiny minority of extremists”.
The following video is an interesting exchange (it is in English but with French subtitles) 

Three Excellent Books - highly recommended for those who truly want to understand Islam rather than just mindlessly soak up the ill-informed garbage put out by Cameron, Obama and indeed the Pope on the subject.

If you are serious about understanding Islam and the satanic hold that this false religion has over its adherents, the following books are "must reads": 1) Answering Islam: The Crescent in Light of the Cross - this book is a must for anyone concerned about defending the Christian faith.  Dr Geisler and his coauthor, a former Muslim, give a thoroughly comprehensive and lucid examinations of Islamfirst; 2) Twenty Three Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammadthird - this book is written by Ali Dashti, a Muslim scholar and a former minister in the Iranian government.  The book was considered so dangerous that it was smuggled out of Iran with orders for it to be published after his death; 3) Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)second - This book is for those who prefer their whisky straight.  Robert Spencer has raised "telling it like it is" to an art form.

THE HERESY OF NICENESS (With acknowledgement to Mundabor for the inspiration)

Some readers have asked whether I might be hurting the cause by being so outspoken.  This I acknowledge to be a legitimate concern.  The short answer is that we have tried being nice for forty years, yet we are now in a far worse situation than when we started.  So, there is not a scrap of evidence that being nice works.

The longer answer is that I believe one should tell the truth even if, in the short term, this would appear to be counter productive.  One could legitimately say to Christ, "Apologise for flogging the money changers from the temple, show more sensitivity to animal lovers, and stop insulting the self-serving cabal within the leadership of your church, and you may do more good."  Superficially you would be right: Christ could have avoided crucifixion and carried on preaching for another decade or two.  But in the long-term would it have been good advice?  Absolutely not!  I believe that telling the truth will always, in the end, prove the better option, however distasteful some find it.

This self-serving Modernist cabal infesting our hierarchy are not just a bunch of funny clerics with a philistine penchant for pop-hymns, or socially awkward shepherds who always manage to embarrass us by making the wrong joke at the wrong time. Their role as our shepherds gives them enormous power; this, in turn, has empowered them to cause immense damage to Catholicism, and this they most certainly have done. We cannot refuse to talk about them simply because the only things we could say would not be “nice”.  We can’t allow these post-Conciliar Judases to go on spewing their traitorous rubbish, and assist them in their destruction of the faith of Christ's little ones with our silence.

The duty of a Christian to Christ comes before the worldly, yet understandable, desire to be nice. Silent niceness does not save souls, the works that come from faith do. We can’t just say: “I refuse to talk openly about clerics who are destroying the Church, because it would conflict with my duty to be nice”.  Niceness is not a religion!  When heresy invades our chanceries, niceness should go out the window.   If you wake up to find an intruder in your house, your first duty is not to be nice!  Your first duty is to defend your wife and children from harm and remove the intruder from your home, violently if needs be.

Those who criticise me usually see all the problems as clearly as I see them.  They see the sabotage and lament the devastation of the Lord's Vineyard as deeply as I do.  They see the open treason.  They see the anti-Catholic poison spewing openly from our chanceries.  Well, then, this is clearly not the time to be silent, or nice. This is the time to be militant and for calling a spade a spade.

The way we comment on blogs and in magazines matters, as well as our conversations with colleagues in the office, likewise our conversations with fellow Catholics after Mass.  Those who hear us may go home and remark to their wives or husbands or children, about what they heard said of these wolves in sheep's clothing.  So the next time your bishop says something stupid (the day after reading this, probably), the statement of the good Catholic guy at the office or on the church porch will immediately be recalled.

The way we talk with our friends and acquaintances, and with our relatives matters.  It matters because, if enough of us take the gloves off and demand our Church back it will, in time, shift the perception of Catholic of these post-Conciliar Judases away from indifference or even that some of them are “the best thing since sliced bread” to the far more truthful “These men are the Sons of Satan!”.  Furthermore, it will also help your soul, because to fall silent in the face of evil in the name of niceness will not earn you any brownie points on the Day of Judgement!

Many of our bishops are openly in bed with the enemy; if your bishop is in bed with the enemy, he is a traitor, and he is the enemy.  You can’t just sit around and say nothing.  If your bishop is in bed with the enemy for the sake of his own self-aggrandizement, he must be called out for what he is: a worldly attention whore, a faithless idiot, and an enemy of Christ and His Church. 
  
Forget niceness. When your mum told you that, “If you don’t have anything nice to say it’s better not to say anything at all”, she did not mean you to be silent in the face of great evil.

In summary, there are only three options in the face of this evil: 
1. Silence, which would be a sin against charity, both to our fellow sheep and to the wayward shepherds themselves. How can the sheep guard themselves against being led into error by errant pastors? How can the errant pastors come to the realisation they have betrayed their own flock and are in dreadful danger unless they repent and return to the straight path?
2.Lying, which would be climbing onto the descending escalator to Satan’s reception desk to stand alongside the enemies of the Church, the clerical charlatans and Episcopal Judases themselves.

3. Telling the truth.  Telling the truth in the face of the massive silent (and not so silent) apostasy of so many of our shepherds at this hour will inevitably and unavoidably mean being brutal, there just is no nice way to tell a man he is a faithless traitor.  
I choose to tell the truth.

P.S. Just as at the time of the Arian crisis, God will ensure that the faithful remnant are not left orphans, there will always be some good men, some St John Fishers in the hierarchy.  We must seek out these men and give them our unwavering support, and remember them in our prayers and daily Rosary.

St Bibiana, CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALIST, pray for us!

St Bibiana was a young woman of Roman nobility who lived in the Fourth Century. The wicked Roman emperor, Julian the Apostate, executed her parents and sister for being Christians, and then turned Bibiana over to the owner of a brothel named Rufina. Rufina, a pagan, was very skilled in recruiting and tricking girls into the sex trade, but Bibiana never wavered or faltered. Bibiana, you see, was a CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALIST. When it became clear to Rufina, and then Julian, that they would get nowhere with Bibiana and that she would never, ever compromise on the FUNDAMENTALS OF CHRISTIANITY by either acknowledging in even the smallest way the pagan “gods”, or in matters of pagan sexual mores ( unlike some of the participants in the recent synod from Hell), Julian had Bibiana tied to a column and flogged to death with a metal tipped whip.

The above, elsewhere on the Web, moved a Vietnam vet to write the following: "I confess that had not heard of St. Bibiana, but I know of a Roman Catholic who walked that walk. In the Mekong Delta in 1970, the VC would kidnap villagers to use them as porters or prostitutes. One girl who was kidnapped would not cooperate with the VC. She fought them, bit, scratched, kicked, screamed and made a general nuisance of herself. You see, she was a Roman Catholic. She would not cooperate with them in any way. The VC finally brought her back to her village and hung her on the barbed wire perimeter. It was the dry season. The VC disemboweled her near an ant hill. She cried out. Every time a villager went out to rescue her he was shot at or shot. A soldier finally put her out of her misery from within the compound. I wish I knew that girl’s name, but I know the exact spot where she died because the village erected a memorial to her."

Dear St Bibiana and the Vietnamese lass mentioned above whose name is known to God, in an age when bishops and even cardinals bow before the gods of pagan sexuality and the bizarre gender agenda of the Zeitgeist, pray for us, the faithful remnant.

This ad is a deeply moving work of art

Most ads are banal and forgettable.  A few are very funny.  But this ad is a deeply moving work of art, and those responsible for it are to be congratulated.  It is a tribute to what Christ can achieve in the most desperately awful circumstances.

BISHOP ATHANASIUS SCHNEIDER ON THE SYNOD ON THE FAMILY


Editor’s note: I've said before "God will not leave us orphans."  At a time of widespread apostasy among our bishops, God will rise up men to lead the faithful remnant.  Could providence have given us a clearer sign than the name "Athanasius"?   The following interview with Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Mary in Astana, Kazakhstan, was published in the Polish magazine Polonia Christiana.

1. Your Excellency, what is Your Excellency’s opinion about the Synod?  What is its message to families?

During the Synod there had been moments of obvious manipulation on the part of some clerics who held key positions in the editorial and governing structure of the Synod. The interim report (Relatio post disceptationem) was clearly a prefabricated text with no reference to the actual statements of the Synod fathers. In the sections on homosexuality, sexuality and “divorced and remarried” with their admittance to the sacraments the text represents a radical neo-pagan ideology. This is the first time in Church history that such a heterodox text was actually published as a document of an official meeting of Catholic bishops under the guidance of a pope, even though the text only had a preliminary character. Thanks be to God and to the prayers of the faithful all over the world that a consistent number of Synod fathers resolutely rejected such an agenda; this agenda reflects the corrupt and pagan mainstream morality of our time, which is being imposed globally by means of political pressure and through the almost all-powerful official mass media, which are loyal to the principles of the world gender ideology party. Such a synod document, even if only preliminary, is a real shame and an indication to the extent the spirit of the anti-Christian world has already penetrated such important levels of the life of the Church. This document will remain for the future generations and for the historians a black mark which has stained the honour of the Apostolic See. Fortunately the Message of the Synod Fathers is a real Catholic document which outlines the Divine truth on family without being silent about the deeper roots of the problems, i.e. about the reality of sin. It gives real courage and consolation to Catholic families. Some quotations: “We think of the burden imposed by life in the suffering that can arise with a child with special needs, with grave illness, in deterioration of old age, or in the death of a loved one. We admire the fidelity of so many families who endure these trials with courage, faith, and love. They see them not as a burden inflicted on them, but as something in which they themselves give, seeing the suffering Christ in the weakness of the flesh. … Conjugal love, which is unique and indissoluble, endures despite many difficulties. It is one of the most beautiful of all miracles and the most common. This love spreads through fertility and generativity, which involves not only the procreation of children but also the gift of divine life in baptism, their catechesis, and their education. … The presence of the family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in their modest home hovers over you”.

Bp Bruno Forte (Pope Humble the 1st's pet homophile and arch-manipulator of the Synod from Hell) has been defeated in the Italian Bishops' Conference

Archbishop Bruno Forte of Chieti-Vasto
(Rome) The Italian Episcopal Conference has elected a new Vice President.  The president of the Italian Episcopal Conference is the Pope himself, but he does not exercise this office; the new strong man is the new Vice President, Bishop Nunzio Galatino.

The Vice President is elected by the General Assembly of the Bishops' Conference.  Archbishop Bruno Forte of Chieti-Vasto (a pupil of Carlo Maria Cardinal Martini) whom Pope Francis had designated to the Special Secretary of the Synod of Bishops on the family, was front-runner. Archbishop Forte had been the author of the controversial Relatio post disceptationem, around which there has been heated controversy within and outside the Synod Hall.  He had also infamously resisted Benedict XVI 's corrected translation of the words of consecration "pro multis" to "for many" instead of "for all".

The "duel" in the Bishops' Conference

Bishop Nunzio Galatino
Besides Forte, Bishop Meini of Fiesole ran for the office of Vice President.  For the more famous Forte, the "duel" should have been  a walk in the park, especially since he is Pope Francis "blue eyed boy": no bishop could seriously doubt what Forte had written in the interim and final report of the Synod, had not been approved by the Pope.  Nevertheless, in the first ballot Forte failed to reach the necessary quorum.  In the runoff, the fact that Forte had fallen from favour became abundantly clear.  Only 60 votes were cast for him, but 140 votes were cast for Bishop Mario Meini of Fiesole: 30 per cent for Forte, 70 percent for his challenger!  The electoral defeat makes Forte papal appointment as chairman of the Bishops' Conference almost impossible .

It is too soon to acclaim this as good news for the Church; it's almost certainly not, because so little that comes out of Rome at the moment is.  However, genuine Catholics can surely be allowed to celebrate the defeat of one more worldly, faithless liberal.
