The Defrauded Friar


By Tabitha Korol

Fr. Michael Calabria, a Franciscan Friar of Holy Name Province, is director of the Center for Arab and Islamic Studies at St. Bonaventure University.  His extensive travels throughout the Islamic world and the subject matter of his broad list of speaking engagements and presentations appear to indicate that he has drifted from his original path.

The Founder of Calabria’s Order of Franciscans, St Francis, similarly travelled into Islamic Egypt during the Fifth Crusade, in 1219, to meet with Sultan Malik al-Kamil in a courageous, but naïve, attempt to evangelize. He had undoubtedly been shown the censored version of Islam and returned impressed with the frequency of Islamic prayers, their 99 names in praise of God, and their reverence of bowing to the ground, and he adapted the Order’s devotionals accordingly.  Unfortunately, he had not been told that devout Muslim spirituality was largely practiced under threat of the sword. In 1220, five friars were martyred in Morocco, and more were slaughtered in later centuries.  In 1291, Franciscans left the Holy Land when Acre, the last Crusader stronghold, fell.  Fr. Calabria is also bewitched by a mythical Islam.

He is scheduled to speak as an apologist for Islam this summer at the Chautauqua Institute, in New York State.  Founded as a Christian institution in 1874, there is a current Jewish presence, and the Institute’s Department of Religion began inviting a series of lecturers about Islam in the mid-1990s, with the aim of reaching its nearly 150,000 annual visitors.  Calabria will be yet another of many speakers invited to woo the unwary audience into esteeming the misrepresented Islam.

In past lectures and on his website, Calabria managed to compose a non-violent version of Mohammed’s hijra (journey) to Mecca and Medina, never divulging the Islamic leader’s beheading of as many as 900 Jews, sexual enslavement of the women and children, and demands of jizya (protection money) from the surviving Christians  The methods used by Islam to conquer the non-Islamic world continue unchanged to this day, with intolerance and invasion, rape, seizure and slaughter throughout Africa, into Europe and the Americas.  Yet, Calabria presents a sanitized picture of the prophet, and encourages Christians to offer hospitality and friendship to the alleged oppressed Muslims, and to guarantee their freedom and safety, united against injustices.   

Furthermore, he will repeat verbatim Islam’s own false claims of astounding achievements.  As I noted in my 2015 reply to aspiring presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s erroneous treatise about Islam on the Hewlett-Packard site, the self-styled “Islamic arches” were already Roman, Byzantine, Persian, Egyptian, Babylonian and Greek. The vaulted and hemispherical ceilings were invented by non-Muslim Romans.  The first numerical system was developed by Babylonians, 800 years before Islam.  The misnamed “Arabic numerals” were adopted from the Hindus, in India. Arab scientists were largely Jews who were forcibly converted.  Arabic philosophers and scientists were Jewish and Berber survivors of massacres.  Arab astronomers were inspired by the great physician, Isaac Israel of Kairouan; and the greatest of “Arab” scientists, Avicenna (980-1037), was probably of Jewish origin from Bokhara.  Their astronomers used instruments, such as the astrolabe, to facilitate world-girdling sea voyages, but created by a “remarkable Jewish genius,” Mashala of Mosul; their astronomical tables were created by the Jewish Joseph ben Wallar at Toledo, and by Judaic specialists, including Immanuel ben Jacob in Aragon.

The sincere, but deluded, Calabria asserts that Muslims played a positive part of American society for more than a century when, in fact, the part they  played was that of Barbary corsairs  These were Ottoman pirates known as the Scourge of the Mediterranean, whose raids and invasions had strangled world trade, caused economic disaster, and stopped shipments of papyrus to create a decline in writing, literacy and books written – the crucial cause of the European Dark Ages.  For centuries they had been capturing European merchant ships and holding for ransom or enslaving their crews.  When they began attacking American ships after the end of the American Revolution, and diplomatic talks failed, US President Thomas Jefferson, in 1798, formed the United States Department of the Navy in order to end the attacks, tributes and ransoms paid and to protect our commerce.  Such has been the real Islamic contribution to Western civilization.

Regarding slavery, it had been the Muslims themselves who forcibly kidnapped their co-religionists, as many as 11 million Black (Muslim) slaves, the men being trafficked for harsh labor, the women primarily for sexual slavery. Taken from their African homelands and sold into Europe and South and Central America for great profit (only 5 percent came to the United States), the traders were prepared to deal with the journeys’ high mortality rate (between 80 and 90 percent), and still be confident of sufficient financial gain.

Native-born American Muslims are mainly African Americans, many converted to Islam during the last 70 years  Although an estimated 10 to 30 percent of the slaves did arrive as Muslims, their adherence was suppressed on plantations, but the non-enslaved Muslims in North America were merchants, travelers and sailors, from the 16th and 17th c. Ottoman and Mughal Empires. Their increased number today is a result of the recent influx of migrants, following the Koranic commands of conquest by invasion (al-hijra) and breeding (al-wilada).  Nearly 96,000 became legal residents in 2005, with another 115,000 in 2009.  While world population may increase by 32 percent, Muslims are predicted to increase by 70 percent.  Their supposedly rich history remains undefined, their beneficial contributions to mankind undetermined, but Calabria remains convinced of an Islam that exists in the imagination only.  

Contrary to his ardent claim of Islam’s wellspring of contributions, the “Muslim genius” appears to be their unique ability to invade and feign victimhood, to insinuate their laws into the host country and protest discrimination, to force civilizations to relinquish their treasured mandates of truth and freedom, to convince a world of a non-existent history, to receive unending entitlements and support, and to contribute nothing beneficial and to destroy their host culture while declaring provenance over every field of endeavor.  Fr. Calabria has strayed from the original path and walks in the footsteps of Mohammed.

 

Muenster, Germany: Man Drives Van into Crowd At Popular Tourist Restaurant – Three Killed, German Officials Deny Terrorism…


An unknown man drove a van into a group of people sitting outside a popular restaurant in the old city center of Muenster in western Germany on Saturday, killing at least two of them before shooting himself dead.

According to the AP: “A leading German newspaper is reporting that authorities believe there is no terrorist motive behind the deadly van crash in Muenster and the driver is believed to be a middle-aged German man who had psychological issues.”

Via Reuters – […] The vehicle ploughed into people sitting at tables outside the Grosser Kiepenkerl restaurant, which is popular with tourists.

“At 15:27 (1327 GMT), a vehicle drove into the outside area of the restaurant … three people were killed, 20 injured, and six of those seriously injured,” a police spokesman said, adding: “The perpetrator killed himself in the vehicle.”

It was not immediately clear whether the perpetrator was among the three killed, or whether his death took the number of dead to four. A police spokeswoman said separately that there were at least three people dead.  (read more)

 

Necessity and Obligation


The answer to Sharia can be more Sharia.

The Reliance of the Traveller is a desk top Sharia text of great authority. Section c6.0, Dispensation and Strictness (another name for Necessity and Obligation), reads:

c6.2 Dispensation is when what is normally forbidden is made permissible because of a necessity or need.

Also in r32.1 we find: …necessity excuses on from any rule whatever…Section c7.2 also addresses that hardship can mean that an obligatory duty does not need to be performed.

The Arabic term for necessity and obligation is called Darura.

Noor Salman Jury Foreman: Despite Not Guilty Verdict “We were convinced she did know”…


Today, a Florida jury on Friday acquitted Noor Salman, the widow of Pulse nightclub terrorist Omar Mateen, for charges of being an accomplice in the attack.

31-year-old Mrs. Salman was found not guilty of all charges relating to her providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization and obstruction of justice.  On June 11, 2016, her husband attacked the club killing 49 people.  After the jury found Mrs. Salman not guilty the jury foreman released the following statement:

ORLANDO – […] “I want to make several things very clear. A verdict of not guilty did NOT mean that we thought Noor Salman was unaware of what Omar Mateen was planning to do. On the contrary we were convinced she did know. She may not have known what day, or what location, but she knew. However, we were not tasked with deciding if she was aware of a potential attack. The charges were aiding and abetting and obstruction of justice. I felt the both the prosecution and the defense did an excellent job presenting their case. I wish that the FBI had recorded their interviews with Ms. Salman as there were several significant inconsistencies with the written summaries of her statements. The bottom line is that, based on the letter of the law, and the detailed instructions provided by the court, we were presented with no option but to return a verdict of not guilty.” (read full statement)

“Known Wolf” Attack – Palm Beach Teen Stabs Family During Sleepover – Claims Islamic Faith Made Him Do It – One Dead, Two Seriously Wounded…


A 17-year-old named Corey Johnson claimed his Muslim faith commanded him to fatally stab a 13-year-old boy during a sleepover and severely injured another 13-year-old along with his mother who was stabbed more than a dozen times.

Palm Beach Florida authorities said the attacker confessed to the killing, attempted killings, and the motive of Islamic Jihad.  After killing one teen and stabbing two more people Johnson barricaded himself in a room when police arrived. He was taken into custody at about 8 a.m. by the city’s SWAT team.

According to local media “Interim Chief Clint Shannon said Jupiter police, Palm Beach County School District police and the FBI previously investigated Johnson for “alleged violent tendencies” that they received through “intelligence gathering” in the northern part of the county.”  He recently dropped out of school.

Palm Beach – […] Corey Johnson, 17, was arrested Monday after he reportedly confessed to stabbing the three people while he spent the night at a friend’s home in the gated community off PGA Boulevard.

He faces one murder and two attempted-murder charges in the stabbings. The FBI also is investigating the attacks.  […] Johnson, who police said recently withdrew from William T. Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, told authorities he woke up at about 4 a.m. Monday at his friend Kyle Bancroft’s home. He decided to kill Kyle’s mother, Elaine Simon; Kyle’s brother, Dane, 13; and Dane’s friend, Jovanni Sierra, 13, while they slept, he said.

Johnson and Kyle watched violent jihadist videos Sunday night, they said. Johnson stabbed Jovanni Sierra and slit his throat with a knife he had brought with him to the house.

Johnson said he read the Quran before going to the house. He turned to the Muslim holy book “to give him courage to carry out his intentions,” according to an arrest report.

[…] As Mrs. Simon walked to the top of the stairs, Johnson lunged at her with a knife and stabbed her. She told city police she’d known the teen for a decade. Authorities said she was stabbed at least a dozen times and fell down the stairs.  13-year-old Dane ran to protect his mother. He was stabbed more than two dozen times, police said. (more)

WATCH:

The Game Plan of C-Span


March 12, 2018

By Tabitha Korol

C-Span has a dedicated propagandist program that reaches millions of viewers.  It works on the basis of having the viewing audience call in, vilifying Israel or world Jewry, for all the world to hear, while the host broadcasters remain silent and blameless.  The accusations go unopposed, the lies unchallenged, the slander uncensored, and the audience has digested a full dose of uninterrupted, unexpurgated hate speech against Israel, with defamation of the US for our friendship with the sole middle-eastern democracy that shares our values.  So Islam and the left, the enemies of Jews and Christians worldwide, have their own kind of Lord Haw-Haw, the Fascist mouthpiece of World War II, protected from all censure.  The callers should be screened out and the hosts should be ethical and better informed to disallow the vilification and falsehoods.

Here are just a few of about one hundred damaging comments by callers in 2017, to which the journalists were either silent, ineffective or in agreement.

  • 12/23, “Israel attacked the USS Liberty to get the US into a war with Egypt; I really don’t think that it is a really good ally.  Who knows whether they (Israel) coaxed us into war with Iraq and Syria.”  This is a persistent false accusation.  Numerous inquiries and reports have concluded that the Israelis could not properly identify the ship in international waters and had reason to fear an Egyptian attack.  It was human error.  Israel apologized for the harm, and paid millions in compensation to the US government, as well as to the wounded and to families of the men killed.
  • 12/06, “Truman took the European Jews and set them right on top of the Palestinians, now that is our problem today.”  The historical connection and legal rights, by international law, of the Jewish people in all of Palestine were defined in 1922 by the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine, the name used by the Romans.  The identification, “Palestinians,” was fabricated in 1967 after the Arabs lost their aggressive war against Israel; the myth of an ancient Arab link to the land was created to undermine Israel and is part of their world jihad, holy war, and al-hijrah, conquest by migration.
  • 11/09, “The best way to stop terrorism [in the world] is to get control of Israel.”  Islamic terrorism is mandated in their scriptures and terrorists have carried out more than 32,651 deadly terror attacks since 9/11 to date, March ’18.  The persecution and killing of Muslims by other Muslims is a severe problem throughout the world.  Israel is the only country in the Middle East where Muslims live in peace and thrive, and this caller has given voice to making Israel the problem.
  • 05/10, “Basically what we’re doing over there in the Middle East is taking care of Israel – we are in like a proactive war for Israel. They do absolutely nothing as far as the Coalition is concerned and we give them money and arms and they still don’t help us.”  America does not protect Israel; the annual aid helps Israel purchase weaponry for its own defense, much made in America, keeping our manufacturing humming and our workers paid, and it is far less costly than deploying US troops to protect other US allies.  Considered the “policeman of the world,” Israel provides us with invaluable intelligence to fight terrorism, combat-tests weapons and makes beneficial modifications. We benefit from their superior innovation and creativity, frontline of defense, cutting-edge technology in agriculture, cyber-security, medicine, military, and in water technology to Third-world countries and California; they deal with Islamic countries so we can concentrate on North Korea.  Israel’s First Responders helped us track the Boston Marathon bombers; helped with California and Texas floods, Mexico and Haiti after their earthquakes, Japan after their tsunami, and provided post-trauma training to Parkland community members.  Our biggest high-tech companies depend on a strong, independent Israel.
  • 04/20, “Hamas, Hezbollah, these are the people who are Palestinians just trying to get their country back. It’s not a difficult situation at all.  My opinion is – it is not Israel, it’s occupied Palestine. China has North Korea.  Russia has Syria. We have Israel.”   There is/was no “occupied” or “country” of “Palestine”; it was a pejorative name given by the Romans against the Jews. There was never a government, constitution, monetary system, language, culture, art, architecture or literature unique to Palestinian people. The Arabs identified as The Arabs identified as southern Syrians until they assumed the name Palestinians after losing their aggressive war in 1967, to create for themselves a bond to the land. A Jewish kingdom existed in the land between 1050 and 930 BCE and a Jewish presence for 3,000 years.  The Balfour Declaration (1917), San Remo Conference (1920), the League of Nations (1920), carved out the Palestine Mandate for the Jewish homeland; Israel was established as the Jewish state (1948) with Jewish majority on purchased, settled land, with full civil, political and cultural rights to all its minorities.
  • 04/07, “But the United States didn’t have any problem with Israel killing 3,000 people in Gaza. I mean, we have also to look at our own government where we’re poisoning our own people in Michigan.”  Where are the bodies to support this outrageous statement?  These are blatant lies and defamation against Israel and America, said out of sheer ignorance, with no one to refute the malicious condemnations.
  • 03/04, “I am strongly opposed to Israeli policy towards Palestinians.  Why is it I am constantly labeled as anti-Semitic?”  Palestinians who live peacefully within Israel are treated equally to other Israeli citizens under the law, but Palestinians are teaching hate of Jews; encouraging stabbing and throwing stones and bombs at Israeli targets; demanding land to which they have no DNA connection, archaeological or historical evidence of attachment as have the Jews.  Palestinians, like other Arabs, are pursuing jihad just as Muslims are overtaking many of Europe’s countries.  The caller is justly labeled anti-Semitic for demonizing and delegitimizing Jews within their own country, but not condemning the Muslims who are invading and attacking the people of other countries.
  • 03/03, “[Israel’s Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu hated President Obama. I don’t think it was because of him being President. It was because of his color. That is one thing we have to deal with.”  Israel is home to Jews of every country of origin and color skin, from Africa, China, and more.  Israel rescued dark-skinned Ethiopian Jews to Israel, in Operation Solomon.

C-Span has repeatedly aired events that denigrate America and Israel, such as Noura Erakat of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in September, known Louis Farrakhan in November, and propagandist Salam Al-Marayati of the Muslim Public Affairs Council in December. They primarily concentrate on resistance to Jews in Israel and the West Bank (Judea, Samaria), and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from their historic homeland.  The Cable-Satellite network continues to air Palestinian propaganda films as factual, and hosted Palestinian panelists who spread anti-Israel propaganda.

C-Span is wreaking harm against Israel and America by providing the venue for the fueling of hate against these keepers of the world’s moral clarity and tricking the uninformed to support the aspirations of totalitarianism to their own detriment.  How does such an organization take it upon itself to work against the very survival of democracy and their own descendants!  If C-Span and Time Warner Cable cannot stop their unprofessionalism and hate mongering and police themselves, perhaps it is time for Congress to step in.

 

Rape is Sunna, Not a Sin


In Islam, Kafir women taken as slaves in jihad were raped with Mohammed’s approval.  Koran: 4:24  “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those whom your right hands (sword hand) possess.”

According to Islamic doctrine, rape & sex slavery is not a sin. Rape of the Kafir is permitted by Mohammed and Allah in the Koran, enshrined in Sharia law. Under Sharia, Kafir women can be raped and there is no penalty. Islam is the only political system in the world that includes rules for rape and war. Rape is a tactic of jihad.

Apologists like to argue that Koran 4:24 only applies to times of war. In Islam, the natural state between Islam and Kafir world is war, dar al harb, not peace. Peace, dar al Islam, comes only after Sharia is implemented and there is 100% submission.

More Islamic reasons condoning rape–Islam divides the world into two camps: 1) the believers in Allah and Mohammed his prophet, who are the best of all people and 2) their enemies, the rest of humanity, or Kafirs. Islam is so concerned with Kafirs (non-Muslims) that the Koran describes in detail their treatment. Kafir is considered the lowliest of all beings, filthy, defiled and hated by Allah. They can be deceived, robbed, beat, raped, and murdered by Muslims.

There are constant ongoing rapes by Muslims against Kafirs around the world. This is another example of the continuous 1400 year history of jihad. These crimes are political statements with ramifications for all other cultures, especially Western civilization. The most disturbing aspect of the Islamic rapes of Kafirs is not the act itself, but the Kafir dhimmi response of cowardly submission by ignoring those rapes.

Kafir with a Capital K


I came to my study of Islam late in life, but I had studied religious text all of my life starting being a teenager. I’ve studied Torah through Orthodox Synagogue. I’ve studied the New Testament a fair amount. I’ve studied Buddhist Sutras, I’ve studied the Bhagavad Gita, I’ve studied a lot of religious texts, and then I came to Islam. Islam was very different, because it was so concerned with the non-Muslim. You see, when you read Buddha’s Sutras, it’s concerned with how to be a Buddhist. It doesn’t concern itself with non-Buddhist.

Now here’s the problem – not only did Islamic doctrine concern itself with the Non-Muslim, the treatment of the Non-Muslin was terrible. There were two treatments of the Non-Muslim – one is religious in that they went to hell, but the other is political, what happened to them in life today. So we need a special name for the non-Muslim, because non-Muslim is a neutral term, and yet the non-Muslim is not treated neutrally. They can be enslaved, tortured, raped, lied to, deceived, plotted against. These are not neutral things, these are political terms and they’re very harmful.

Now the Koran has a word for the non-Muslim. It’s called Kafir. K-A-F-I-R. Now, like everything else in the Koran, the meaning slightly shifts over time. At first the word Kafir just means someone who is not grateful, or who covers the truth. But as time goes on, finally the non-Muslim, the Kafir, can be destroyed in Jihad. So there’s a progression of different meanings the Kafir but in the end the Kafir can be harmed. And that’s the reason I don’t like being a Kafir. Now you all know I like to measure things, and so one of the things I measured was how much of the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith are about the non-Muslim. The answer – fifty one percent.

That is, most of Islamic doctrine concerns itself with the Kafir, which is a political problem, not just a religious problem. Now then, the Koran uses lot of different words for the non-Muslim that are religious. People of the book, pagan, polytheist, Jew, Christian apostate, infidel, but all of those who did not submit to the Sharia suffered a political consequence, which was some form of harm – death, torture, execution, assassination. These were political ends.

Now, Muslims like to tell us, we’ve seen, the people of the book, Christians and Jews, they’re not really Kafirs. They’re brothers in the family of Abraham. Let’s see how these brothers in the family of Abraham are treated. Do you think the Jews that they were executed, as people of the book, felt any different than the pagan who was executed? No.

The political consequence is the same. Submission of some form or another. There are different classes of Kafirs in the Koran. We have atheist, polytheist, deist, idolaters, and then Jews who believe in revelation but don’t believe in Mohammed’s revelation. But in the end, everyone’s a Kafir who does not believe in the Shahada. The Shahada is ‘There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.’

I view Islam as a political system, and the Sharia extends to all other religions, which is a political thing. They must all submit and run their lives according to the Sharia. The Kafir is a political class. Unfortunately, historically, their victims stand and suffer alone. That is, the Buddhists suffer and who knows about it? The suffering of the Africans under Jihad involved in slavery, who knows about that? The Hindus know about their own suffering, but they don’t really know about the suffering of the Christians who were in what was originally called Asia Minor, or what is called Turkey today. So, although the people suffer, they suffer alone. And I want to use the word Kafir to show that they all are the same political class.

Now I’m coming to one of my main points. Any time I make a video about religion that includes Christians and Jews, I get hate mail about that. People hate the Jews, they hate the Christians, they hate the Jesuits, they hate the Catholics, they hate the Protestants. Here’s the thing, go ahead and hate ’em, but know this, you, the hater, you’re going to suffer the same political result as the Jew, the Christian and everyone else.

Get the picture. You may not like other religions, but in the end, whether you’re an atheist or not, you’re going to suffer the same political consequences. This is the reason I want to use the word Kafir – to unite us politically. We’re all the same in a political class. Now then, how do you know that if you use Kafir as the right word?

And by the way, I use Kafir with a capital K, because I use it to mean a special meaning – all those who suffer under Islam. Here’s how you know you’re using the right word. You know who doesn’t want you to use that word? Muslims. You see, it’s their little dirty word that’s a secret. Now, we have a word in the English language that we can’t use and we call it the N-word. Well, Kafir is the K-word in Islam. So, Muslims hate it, which is the proof that we need to use it.

In the Arabic, the plural of Kafir is Kuffar, K-U-F-F-A-R. But I don’t use that. I want to use the English plural Kafirs, plural with an S, because I want the word to become adapted and used. We must understand that all Kafirs are the same in the end. So, therefore, we need to use the same word for each other. Thank you.

A Refresher Talk on Political Islam


Hello, I would like to talk to you about Islam, but in particular, I would like to talk to you about political Islam and explain to you why the religion of Islam is of no concern to you, unless you’re a Muslim. But let’s ask a more basic question, is there some way that we can use rational, fact-based reasoning on Islam? Because notice carefully that the current methods are very subjective. How do people learn about Islam? Well, they go to an expert and this expert hopefully is a Muslim and then they tell ’em what Islam is, but notice something, you get the answer about what Islam is, depending on who you ask, if you ask a Jihadist, you get one answer, if you ask a professional engineer at work, you get another answer, so this method is subjective and I want to propose to you, that there is a completely objective way to answer all questions about Islam.

Now then, the most important question to ask about Islam is, what is Islam? No, it is not a religion found in the Quran, well, a little of that’s true, but actually, Islam is a complete way of life, it is a complete civilization, it is a religion, it’s a political system, it’s a culture, it’s a civilization and there’s no act so small as a human being, that Islam doesn’t have something to say about it.

So, what is Islam? Well, let’s begin with what every Muslim knows, there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger, this is called the Shahada and where do we find Allah? Well, we find Allah in the Quran, but there’s something peculiar about the Quran, it does not contain enough information to practice the Five Pillars of Islam. However, there’s a trapdoor built into the Quran and it’s the 91 verses, that say that Muhammad is the perfect pattern of a divine life.

So, where do we find Muhammad? Because if we’re going to imitate Muhammad, we need to know Muhammad. Muhammad is found in The Sira, his biography and in the Hadith, his traditions. So, Islam is the doctrine found in the Quran, the Sira and the Hadith, if it is in the Quran, the Sira and the Hadith, it is Islam, equally important, if something is said to be Islam, but it can’t be found inside the Quran, the Sira, and the Hadith, it is not Islam. So, Islam is Muhammad and the Quran or Muhammad and Allah, so if you’re speaking with the voice of Muhammad or the voice of Allah, then you’re talking about Islam.

Now there’s something sort of peculiar about this, the Quran and the Sira, the Hadith are mostly about the non-Muslim, the kafir, someone like myself and possibly you, the part that deals with the kafir is, I call it, political Islam, why? Because the Quran is defined as being completely outside of the religion, so if you’re not a Muslim and the Quran is concerned with you, it is not because you’re a Muslim, but because you’re just a human being. Now then, ways to talk about religious Islam, you’ll notice that it involves Paradise and Hell, whereas the political Islam is about how to treat the kafir.

What does the Quran say about the kafir? That the kafir is lower than an animal, filthy, cursed, mocked, can be enslaved, tortured and deceived and, yes, even raped. My most unfavorite part of the Quran is the part, 12 verses that say that a Muslim is never the true friend to the kafir.

Now then, if you’re going to talk about Islam, we have to talk about the tricky part, which is the confusion, because everyone’s heard this, everyone’s heard a good thing about Islam and a bad thing about Islam and so the question comes up, what is the real Islam? Well, the clue is this, it’s found in Muhammad’s career, after he became the messenger of Allah, he preached the religion of Islam for 13 years in Mecca and converted about 150 people, then he went on to Medina, where he became a politician and a Jihadist. Now then, Muhammad preached the religion of peace and converted 150 people, but as a Jihadist and a politician, he was a complete triumph, so what is Islam?

Well, it is the religion of peace and the verses of Jihad, so that’s what it is, it is both items, there’s two Qurans, the Meccan Quran, which is very religious and the Medinan Quran, written later, which is all about Jihad and politics, let’s be clear, there is no Jihad in Mecca, but 24% of the Quran written in Medina is about Jihad, Jihad is a systemic doctrine, it’s not about a verse or two, so Islam always has two meanings and this is very convenient, because it gets what it wants.

Now then, let’s talk about Jihad a bit, because it’s confusing, Jihad is not Holy War, Jihad comes in four flavors, Jihad of the Sword, Speech, Writing and Money, now let’s be clear, Jihad is not meaning war, it means struggle. Jihad uses pressure in all areas, food, migration, headscarves, education and the fact that you’re not allowed to criticize Islam, so Jihad is pure political Islam, Jihad is political action, designed to install a new civilization, based on Islamic principles, Sharia principles.

So there is an objective way to talk about Islam, as long as you’re listening to one of two experts, Muhammad or Allah, Islam is both a religion of peace and the politics of Jihad, which one is the real one? They’re both equally real. The religion of Islam is only important to Muslims, but the politics of Islam are important to all peoples, my advice to you is don’t discuss Muslims, but instead, talk about Muhammad and Allah.

We’re involved in a civilizational war, our civilization is based on critical thought and a unitary ethic, the unitary ethic is that all people should be treated as equal, Islam does not have those two principles, it has the authoritative thought, instead of critical thought and it practices dualistic ethics, instead of unitary ethics, the ethical system depends on who you are as to how you’re treated.

We can and must defeat political Islam, the religion of Islam is of no consequences to you, unless you’re a Muslim, this is a war of ideas and civilizations and there can be no compromise, our very existence depends on us asserting our ideas and our ideals. Thank you.
