Recently, and not-so-recently, in Frontpage Magazine online, Rabbi Shalom Lewis tried to warn us of the global dangers posed by “radical islam,” as detailed here.
But in doing so, the Rabbi commited the exact same cognitive errors he accuses others of: calling the enemy of mankind “radical islam.”
Terorrism is “FUNDAMENTAL” to islam, so by definition it’s not “RADICAL!”
First, the Rabbi said (correctly, concerning the German race’s involvement with the nazi crime-creed:)
“Not all Germans were Nazis – most were decent, most were revolted by the Third Reich, most were good citizens hoisting a beer, earning a living and tucking in their children at night. But, too many looked away, too many cried out in lame defense – “I didn’t know.” Too many were silent. Guilt absolutely falls upon those who committed the atrocities, but responsibility and guilt falls upon those who did nothing as well. Fault was not just with the goose steppers but with those who pulled the curtains shut, said and did nothing.”
But then he made a BIG mistake, conflating crime-creed (islam) with race (mostly Arab):
“Let me state that the overwhelming number of Muslims are good Muslims, fine human beings who want nothing more than a Jeep Cherokee in their driveway, a flat screen TV on their wall and a good education for their children, but these good Muslims have an obligation to destiny, to decency that thus far for the most part they have avoided. The Kulturkampf is not only external but internal as well. The good Muslims must sponsor rallies in Times Square, in Trafalgar Square, in the UN Plaza, on the Champs Elysee, in Mecca condemning terrorism, denouncing unequivocally the slaughter of the innocent. Thus far, they have not. The good Muslims must place ads in the NY Times. They must buy time on network TV, on cable stations, in the Jerusalem Post, in Le Monde, in Al Watan, on Al Jazeera condemning terrorism, denouncing unequivocally the slaughter of the innocent – thus far, they have not. Their silence allows the vicious to tarnish Islam and define it.”
In other words, while he’s correctly saying, “Not all Germans were Nazis,” he IS also, quite erroneously saying, “Not all muslims are muslims!”
Were his eyes open, he’d have correctly said:
“Not all Germans were Nazis, and not all Arabs are muslims.”
But Rabbi, I must add:
ALL NAZIS WERE NAZIS, AND ALL MUSLIMS ARE MUSLIMS!
On the positive side, I did especially appreciate his “We must wake up and smell the hookah” quip LOL!
(My usual favorite, similar one has always been: “Wake up and smell the fatwah”)!
Unfortunately, he falls into the trap he describes for others:
“We cannot be lulled into inaction for fear of offending the offenders. Radical Islam is the scourge and this must be cried out from every mountain top.”
HE is afraid of offending the offenders by calling this evil what it is: normative, not “radical,” ISLAM.
Further, he errs when he asks, rhetorically (but mixed in with other, wrong category examples:) “Should a church be built in the Syrian town of Ma’arra where Crusaders slaughtered over 100,000 Muslims? “
IN that case: YES! Because those muslims were invaders who knew their “holy hijra” emigration was conquest.
He continues in his error:
“Despite all the rhetoric, the essence of the matter can be distilled quite easily. The Muslim community has the absolute, constitutional right to build their building wherever they wish. I don’t buy the argument – “When we can build a church or a synagogue in Mecca they can build a mosque here.” America is greater than Saudi Arabia. And New York is greater than Mecca. Democracy and freedom must prevail.”
Most Emphatically: NO! There is no comparison at all, no “moral high ground” to be gained by allowing the holy mobsters to build their triumphalist crime-dens amongst our children, while denying us the chance to educate.
Further, re: “Can they build? Certainly. May they build? Certainly. But should they build at that site? No — but that decision must come from them, not from us. Sensitivity, compassion cannot be measured in feet or yards or in blocks. One either feels the pain of others and cares, or does not.”
That’s the EXACT same as asserting that “They can and may commit their crimes against us, but their decision to stop committing them must come from them, un-influenced by us. A criminal should be allowed to continue his crime rampage until he decides to stop, and so we have no moral right or obligation to protect the innocent!”
Then he brags about being a member of the ACLU, cementing his libtarded, self-hating masochist credentials.
It’s obvious that he hasn’t bothered to read the Qur’an’s 500 pages, and so still presumes islam a religion.
So of course he quickly veers off-topic into the false “nationalism” is the cause of the conflict trope:
“In the Six Day War, Israel was the proxy of Western values and strategy while the Arab alliance was the proxy of Eastern, Soviet values and strategy.”
Well, again, NO, actually! When Israel was first bought freed in the past Century, the Soviets supported her, long before American Jews got on board.
He continues: “As Israel, imperfect as she is, resists the onslaught, many in the Western World have lost their way displaying not admiration, not sympathy, not understanding, for Israel’s galling plight, but downright hostility and contempt. Without moral clarity, we are doomed because Israel’s galling plight ultimately will be ours. Hanna Arendt in her classic Origins of Totalitarianism accurately portrays the first target of tyranny as the Jew. We are the trial balloon. The canary in the coal mine. If the Jew/Israel is permitted to bleed with nary a protest from the “good guys” then tyranny snickers and pushes forward with its agenda.”
Sorry, but again, NO. Truly, Jews are the first among infidels in the Qur’an, but bemoaning habitual Jewish victimology won’t cut it as far as “moral clarity” goes, when one ignores the real enemy: ISLAM itself, not “islamist fundamentalist radicalist extremist militantists” which only implies “islam-ish, (but not really!)”
The Qur’an clearly and specifically tells muslims the Bible is wrong and also that all Christians and Jews are infidel criminals who worship a false god, and who must therefore be extorted, enslaved, and murdered for their “crime” of not being muslims.
So, if and when you consider islam to be a religion, you must agree with it’s main tenet: that God is a violent murderer who wants his muslim tribe to violently conquer the world by extorting, enslaving, and murdering all the non-muslim humans, right?
Bottom line: If you decide to believe in “allah,” you have declared yourself a criminal, and so must be arrested, indicted, tried and convicted. Your confession of “faith” in your crime-god will help us to do so.
It’s depressing and amazing how much he continues to miss the point, while almost getting it:
“How do we convince the world and many of our own, that this is not just anti-Semitism, that this is not just anti-Zionism but a full throttled attack by unholy, radical Islamists on everything that is morally precious to us? How do we convince the world and many of our own that conciliation is not an option, that compromise is not a choice? Everything we are. Everything we believe. Everything we treasure, is at risk. The threat is so unbelievably clear and the enemy so unbelievably ruthless how anyone in their right mind doesn’t get it is baffling. “
As a further sad example of his own blindness, he blithely continues with adding the following proud fallacy:
“I was no great fan of George Bush – didn’t vote for him. (By the way, I’m still a registered Democrat.) I disagreed with many of his policies but one thing he had right. His moral clarity was flawless when it came to the War on Terror, the War on Radical Islamist Terror.”
I think that, if he is able to think this through at all, he’ll find he is afraid of pitting his Rabbi status endorsing and selling Judaism against “another great world religion” because then people could claim it was a mere “conflict of superstitious religious opinions” open to subjective relativistic interpretations, and thus cancelling out any moral authority he might initially have had by seeming to be denigrating another “religion.”
But we cannot, as he noted, worry about offending the offenders’ sensibilities, and this is a false meme:
Criminal muslims are full of victim-blaming fallacies; like all criminals, slander is their weapon of choice.
We cannot EVER dissuade them from using such fraudulent lies, no matter how we try to Reason with them.
One, they pretend WE are slandering islam/muslims, “because” of our Judeo-Christian faith!
But the facts are, that the Christian faith demands slander of nobody!
Since Christianity came long before islam, there is nothing specifically anti-islamic in the Bibles.
There is only one line in the Christian bible about how Jesus saw the proto-islamic ‘faith’ of the Syro-Phoneocian Woman, in Mark 7:24-30 / Matthew 15:21-28: He called it “dogfood.”
To me, islam is dogSHIT, but there’s nothing in the Bible that forces me to say that out of “faith” except maybe the part of Isaiah that says God only wants us to Reason with Him, to use our own reasoning, and NOT to have any false “faith” LOL!
Finally, islam isn’t a religion (at all, much less one “of peace!”) so to notice that the Qur’an clearly and specifically tells muslims the Bible is wrong and also that all Christians and Jews are infidel criminals who worship a false god, and who must therefore be extorted, enslaved, and murdered for their “crime” of not being muslims, has NOTHING to do with any pre-conceived/pre-judicial “religious” viewpoint, it’s just FUCKING OBVIOUS.
And yet this poor benighted Rabbi continues giving credence to the enemy’s main trope:
“Our parents and grandparents saw the swastika and recoiled, understood the threat and destroyed the Nazis. We see the banner of Radical Islam and can do no less.”
Subconsciously, I think he knows the reality, because his final, rhetorical question did not refer to “imams:”
“During WWII and the Holocaust was it business as usual for priests, ministers, rabbis? Did they deliver benign homilies and lovely sermons as Europe fell, as the Pacific fell, as North Africa fell, as the Mideast and South America tottered, as England bled? Did they ignore the demonic juggernaut and the foul breath of evil? They did not. There was clarity, courage, vision, determination, sacrifice, and we were victorious. “
Perhaps he remembered that the Arab and Turkish muslims were on the side of the Nazis?
“Today it must be our finest hour as well. We dare not retreat into the banality of our routines, glance at headlines and presume that the good guys will prevail.”
Nevertheless, he seems to be a “religions salesmen,” defending all similar-seeming creeds and thus ensuring and safeguarding his authority and pension, in stead of being a truly religious person, one prone to telling the hard truths even if it meant self-sacrifice.
Judeo-Christianity does not motivate people to proactively defensive acts, only to reactively irresponsibly palliative ones. People drag their butts into the churches and synagogues once a week, enduring the drone of the sermons, in penance for their subconscious guilt and to deflect their own moral responsibilities onto the preacher. They drop a few dollars into the collection plates, and thus ritually assuage their consciences, much in the same way as they defer their responsibility to think and act for them selves onto those they elect and pay to do their thinking for them. In a way, defering to any and all forms of moral authority is really criminal negligence.
But in reality, and in general, no force or police or laws or idolatrous authorities are necessary among free citizens who can and will govern themselves, while the opposite is: no amount of force or police or laws or idolatrous authorities are enough for a people who CANNOT – or will not – govern themselves.
Interestingly, the next, sister-article starts off right where the first left off:
“I remembered Joseph Conrad’s sadly, cynical observation – – “The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary. Men alone are quite capable of every wickedness,” and sadly it felt right.”
But then – DAMNIT, BEAVIS! – HE MAKES THE EXACT SAME MISTAKE AGAIN:
“But what disturbs me is where are the other 950 million Muslims who are not terrorists? Who are not bomb blasting, acid throwing, zealots? Where are the other 950 million Muslims who tuck their children in at night with a lullaby, who are okay with Christians and Jews, crave a peaceful world and wish nothing more than a tasty bowl of hummus and a friendly game of Shesh Besh with a neighbor?
I want to believe they are out there for their sake and for ours. I want to believe they weep in pain over the desecration of their faith. I want to believe that we have partners who dream the dreams we do and wish upon the same star.
I want to believe – – but where are they?
A silent partnership is no partnership. Sin is not just in the act of commission – it is also in the act of omission.
Most Germans were not Nazis – but it did not matter.
Most Russians were not Stalinists – but it did not matter.
Most Muslims are not terrorists – but it does not matter.”
WRONG! WRONG!! WRONG!!! AGAIN, A THOUSAND TIMES: WRONG!!!!
ALL MUSLIMS ARE POTENTIAL TERRORISTS, EXACTLY LIKE THE POTENTIAL ENERGY STORED UP IN THEIR BOMBS!
TERRORISM IS THE NORMATIVE, “MOST PIOUS SACRAMENT” OF ISLAM ITSELF!
IF IT IS TRULY “FUNDAMENTALIST,” (AND IT IS!) THEN BY DEFINTIION, IT’S ALSO IMPOSSIBLE FOR IT TO BE “RADICAL!”
Edmund Burke’s powerful warning, that “All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing,” won’t amount to anything when the OFFICIAL QUR’ANIC DEFINITION OF GOOD AND EVIL is reversed from what we have been fallaciously led to believe holds universally true for all creeds and breeds of humans!
Islam is NOT about universally objective standards of good and evil; in stead, it’s ALL about subjective double-standards of pre-posterous, victim-blaming slander, where all the non-muslims in the world must be extorted, enslaved, and murdered simply for their “crime” of not being muslims – even though they also insist that their “allah” has most deliberately caused their (our) infidelity!
Even that word, ‘infidel,’ is backwards slander, for Muhammad’s creed came AFTER our Judeo-Christian one; so how can we have always been “unfaithful” to something which is relatively new?! Backwards muslims pretend their islam is the world’s original religion, and ours is the corrupted degraded and ultimately false form of it.
SO we have all been pre-emptively objectified as “the worst of creatures, as apes and swine, as lower than braying donkeys, lower even than demons who have converted to islam,” OFFICIALLY right in their “holy” Qur’ans!!!
So, according to their book, prophet, archangel and deity, we must convert or be murdered by them.
Islam OFFICIALLY sentences all the world’s non-muslims to “Death by Muslim!” for our “crime” of not being them! Sure, until their global conquest is achieved, there’s a grace period where we get to buy our way out of the last bit, by self-enslaving our selves to them, paying a 50% tax to fund their world conquest war effort, but that temprary escape clause, too, will expire immediately upon the instant of their final victory!
THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO TO CHANGE THAT, AND IGNORING THAT FACT WON’T MAKE IT GO AWAY!
When “our leaders” blather on about how “islam is a great world religion of peace!” they hope to pretend that their wilfully self-blinded ignorance is a virtuous example of allowing islam to remain innocent until proven guilty, but their having failed to read the mere 500 pages of the Qur’an is evidence of criminal negligence, abdication of their oaths of office to protect their citizens, and dereliction of duty. They are traitors.
The Rabbi, then blithely continues with his falsehoods, concerning the fate of Europe:
“The continent that gave birth to Western civilization, the continent that defined high culture is crumbling before our very eyes. Because of well-intentioned tolerance and an undisciplined pluralism, Europe is returning to the dark ages. By most estimates, Europe will be unrecognizable by the middle of this century – crushed by a demographic tsunami. The birthrate of the Brits, the French, the Dutch and the rest of the EU is well below ZPG. The Muslim community’s birthrate is prolific. The danger, however, is that Europe has not been a melting pot, assimilating new Muslims. And these new Muslims, for the most part, are not interested in respecting the great democracies of Europe. They want Sharia law and Islamic culture to be ascendant and with their birthrate, the ballot box and their disdain for the West, in time, they will get it.
The element that is surging and redefining Europe are not the democracy respecting Muslims” …
HEY, RABBI! THAT’S BECAUSE THERE ARE NO “DEMOCRACY-RESPECTING MUSLIMS,” ANY MORE THAN THERE WERE EVER ANY “DEMOCRACY-RESPECTING NAZIS!”
“… but those who are rampaging in nearly every capital. They are preaching hate for Jews, for Christians, for Israel, for America, for the entire Western world. It is not our grandfather’s Europe and it will not be a Europe our grandchildren will recognize.
For the record, Europe is being flooded not by freedom loving, tolerant, assimilating Muslims who wish to share in Western freedom, in Western tolerance, in Western culture but rather by violent Islamists, extremists who reject every value we treasure.”
AND THAT, TOO, IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FREEDOM LOVING, TOLERANT, ASSIMILATING MUSLIM, ANY MORE THAN THERE WAS EVER A FREEDOM LOVING, TOLERANT, ASSIMILATING NAZI.
Islam is inherently a form of SEDITION – because it never agreed with the Christian notion of separating secular (road-paving, taxation) and religious realms (render unto Caesar) and went with “Render The World Unto Muhammad!”
So it doesn’t believe in national sovereignty, preferring global theocracy (‘ummah’) ruled by the Caliphate government!
Islam is ONLY a crime syndicate, and the only “religious” part in it’s where they say: “God told us to commit these crimes!
Muslims are never national citizens; they regard all national sovereignties as temporary, man-made false idols which must all be eventually destroyed and replaced with the one-world global muslim Ummah, to be ruled by their theocratic caliphate, and their duty is to wage offensive war to extort, enslave, and murder all the non-muslims. Terrorism is an inherent, not an incidental, nor in any way a “radical,” component of islam.
NO MUSLIMS ARE “PATRIOTS” OR NATIONALISTS OF ANY KIND!
No self-determined muslim believes in any sovereign national governments nor countries at all, ever!
Sharia is allegedly the perfect law of allah, based directly on the Qur’an!
So it always applies to all humans everywhere!
SO WHO NEEDS ANY – EVEN “ELECTED” – MAN-MADE GOVERNMENTS TO CREATE LAWS WHICH DIFFER FROM SHARIA?!
Recall the Ayatollah Khomeini’s words during his 1980 speech in Qom, the Shi’ite spiritual hub:
“We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land burn. I say let this land [Iran] go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.”
So, since islam is a subversive anti-national and anti-legal entity, why on earth are any of its “muslim” members ever afforded any legal standing to promote their criminal treasonous sedition, before any of our courts of law?!
Allowing foreign (sharia “law”) courts to exist in your country is to enable those foreign governments to govern in your country; it’s obviously TREASON.
The Rabbi CONTINUES TO PRETEND “Not all muslims (nazis) are muslims (nazis!):”
“I say it again loudly, slowly and clearly – we are at war, here in America as well, with radical Islamists.
We have been attacked repeatedly and yet we continue to turn away. We euphemize the enemy. Disguising his identity and his intent.”
Speak for your self, pal!
It’s sadly laughable how he twists the facts and reverses the truth:
“we dare not make the mistake that all is well and that Islamic terrorists are simply violent criminals.”
NO! All is well enough, at the moment, that if we were to finally announce that islamic terrorists ARE indeed really ALL only violent criminal extortionists, blaming a sick version of a “god” for their criminal desires, the global threat of islam would be over within a year, at most!
“For us, WWII lasted 4 years. It has been 13 years since 9/11. 35 years since the invasion of our Iranian embassy and like it or not, we are still at war with radical Islam. Declaring we are not at war with radical Islam does not make it so.”
Actually, IT IS SO!
WE ARE NOT AT WAR WITH “RADICAL ISLAM:” ISLAM ITSELF HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT WAR WITH ALL OF US!
I simply think it’s obvious that this Rabbi hasn’t bothered to read the Qur’an, yet – it’s the ony way I can see for him to have correctly observed all the resulting symptoms of islam (intolerant, offensive and violent jihads everywhere) and yet still be able to pretend to suppose to himself in public that islam itself must’ve somehow been “hijacked” or “misunderstood” by evil people.
But in fact, the Qur’an itself officially commands the muslims’ violent behaviour:
