Western Civilisation

Join Gab (@StFerdinandIII) Western Civilisation was and is superior to anything Islam has developed.  Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam.  Raising the alarm about the fascism called Submission since 2000.

The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise, #3, by Dario Fernandez-Morera

Mass murder, supremacist codes, rapes, beheadings and an inquistion were apparently 'enriching'.

by Ferdinand III

As the Black, Black-Muslim, Arab-Muslim, Pakinstani-Muslim invasion of Western states proceeds and accelerates, it is of course ‘racist’ (Muhammad’s cult is not a race of course), and ‘phobic’ (scepticism borne out of reality is not a pathological disorder of course), to resist the colonialization of majority-White states.  It is strangely however, ‘patriotic’, ‘rational’, ‘enlightened’ to support the continued majority status of Black, Muslim, Asian-denominated states.  Curious that.  Multi-culturalism, the grand failure it has been, is apparently, only necessary for majority-White states. 

 

In the context of rewriting history into a sequence of lies and distortions, the self-proclaimed ‘tolerant’, ‘intelligent’, ‘humanist-rationalist’ groups declare that Arab-Muslim Spain, conquered by Muhammadans by 719-720 AD, and under Muslim occupation until 1492, encompassing a large peninsula comprised of Romano-Christians before the invasion, which witnessed almost annual displays of war, slaughter, rape, supremacism, racism and pogroms against Christians, Christian culture and Jews, was certainly a paradise of civilisational greatness, perhaps the apogee of multi-cultural enrichment; this mendaciously named Andalusia was the paragon of society cohesion and coherent advancement, this modern post-Enlightenment cult claims.  Of course, these assertions are fantasy, and none of this narrative is true, as this excellent book by Morera outlines.

 

Morera devotes an entire chapter which everyone should read, on ‘The myth of the Ummayad tolerance’.  The Ummayads were the first Arab-dominated Caliphate of Spain post their invasion and destruction of the Visgothic-Romano Christian kingdom.  As one Muslim historian Ibn Hazm happily states, the Ummayads were ‘the most afflicting to the enemies of Al-Lah’, meaning the most intolerant of Christians and Jews.  As Morera states, ‘The celebrated Ummayads actually elevated religious and political persecutions, inquistions, beheadings, impalings, and crucifixons to heights unequalled by any other set of rulers before or after in Spain’ (p. 120).  These are facts you won’t hear about or see in films.  Morera mentions many episodes, with a few summarised below, unlikely to be referred to by academics or in their reality-distortion material and lectures.

 

-Upon conquering Cordoba, the Visigothic-Catholic capital, Muslims set about demolishing St. Vincent’s Cathedral, the main cathedral of worship, to build a Mosque, built by Christians and Jews.

 

-Abd al Rahman I the first Ummayad Caliph, not only destroyed St. Vincent’s but hundreds of other shrines and Churches of the ‘polytheist’ (trinity-believing) Catholics across Spain, often building mosques on the same location.

 

-War was an annual Umayyad event to spread the Jihad (even into southern France and Switzerland), and arrest the interminable intra-Muslim, intra-Arab tribal quarrels and rebellions.  The Umayyads were enthusiastic savages, carrying out indiscriminate slaughter of innocents, and those taken prisoner, both Christian and Muslim (rebels).  Severed heads en-masse, were sent back to Cordoba for display, after every raid and war.

 

-The Umayyads imposed brutal punishments and controls on Christians and Jews, named Dhimmis under Sharia barbarism.  Blasphemy against any aspect of the Muslim occupation, the cult’s founder Muhammad, or Umayyad rule in general, was greeted with a death sentence.  This included any public pronouncement (viewed as proselytization) of the Christian faith, or apostasy from Muslims who either left the cult, or were insufficiently pious (fanatical) enough.  Apostasy in Muhammadanism is punished by death.

 

-Christians were yoked under a heavy regime of taxation (called Jizya), in which male Muslims paid no taxes, but Christians produced the revenues needed to finance the state, the Muslim armies and the occupation.  Muslim public buildings and mosques were likewise financed with Jizya and built by Christians as unpaid slave labour. 

 

-Abd al Rahman III instituted Europe’s first inquisition, against Muslim heretics, Jews, and Christians.  The purpose of this inquisition was to punish anyone who dared to stray from, question, or ‘misinterpret’ the Koran, Hadiths and Sharia pronouncements.  The intention was to form what is today called ‘an extremist’ but entirely true and accurate interpretation, across all of society, of the ‘laws’ and rules from the Koran and Hadiths.  Such a program was common across all Muslim states, across all centuries, and was not unique. 

 

-Starting in at least the 9th century, Muslim crucifixions of Christians and heretical Muslims (apostates) became common, as well as public beheadings.  In 797 in Toledo for example, the entire ‘unruly’ Christian elite of about 700, many of whom had ‘converted’ (by force) to Muhammadanism were crucified.  Similar episodes occurred in Cordoba and elsewhere.  It also was common if Muslims suffered defeat in battle (eg. 929 AD in Leon), that the Muslim caliph would crucify his own soldiers for failing to defeat the polytheists.

 

-During the late 10th century, the last Umayyad Caliph, al-Mansur, calling himself the ‘Victorious’ launched 60 jihadic raids against Christians in Spain which included rapes, sex trafficking and burning books and Christian sites.  Al-Mansur burnt Zaragoza, Osma, Zamora, Leon, Astorga, Coimbra, and even the holy city of Santiago de Compostela.  In 985 he burnt down Barcelona and enslaved all who did not die.

 

-After sacking Santiago de Compostela, al-Mansur ordered Christian slaves to carry the great bells from the tower to Cordoba.  These bells were melted down and turned into lamps for the mosque in Cordoba, itself built by Christian slaves from Castile.

 

The Umayyads occupied Spain as a dictatorial power for almost 300 years.  As an occupying power they demonstrated an extreme lack of tolerance and multi-cultural sensitivity.  Hundred of thousands of Catholic Christians were slaughtered in war, or indiscriminate Jihad.  Hundreds of thousands were taken as slaves including female and young boys as sex slaves. Churches, bridges, libraries, documents, shrines, metal work, artwork, were consigned to the fire.  Entire cities depopulated and desecrated.  The ‘legal system’ carved society into 2 parts; one for the Muslims, a second for the non-citizens, non-entities called Dhimmis or non-Muslims.  Punishments for disobeying Muslim ordinances, supremacist-legal codes, or apostasy and blasphemy were death by beheading, decapitation, or torture. 

 

It is remarkably ignorant, deceptive, insipid and contrary to factual evidence, that academics or anyone else would cite medieval Spain as a paradise of inter-faith cooperation and cultural enrichment.
