Salim Mansur – one of the handful of Islamic 'moderates' who will defend the West

Professor, writer, and Muslim reformer, on the poverty of Arab culture.

by Ferdinand III

Mansur is a Pakistani refugee who fled the Muslim slaughter of 3 million Bangladeshis in the early 1970s. He found civilization and opportunity in Canada. A former Marxist who as an adult, grew out of his adolescent addiction to government, state power, coercion and a hatred of the modern world, Mansur could best be characterized as a conservative humanist – a man who supports freedom, the individual and human potential. He is one of the handful of Muslims who understands that Islam needs to undergo a Western styled reformation to save itself – and millions of others – from its death cult. What he says about the Arab world is therefore of interest.

Mansur is traveling through Camus' North Africa, a land conquered in the 7th and 8th centuries by Arab Muslims who form an ethnic minority. His observations on the poverty, the misery, the negativity and seething resentment embedded in Arab dominated North African culture is obvious to anyone who has travelled in the region. The Arab world is dead. There is no chance at reform unless as in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Western powers use military force to remove the obnoxious regime and cult, distorting and destroying civilian, moral and educational life.

As Mansur relates, even a celebrated 'intellectual' magazine like 'The Economist' gets it wrong – which is not surprising. This is a news rag which after all supports Obama, GlobaloneyWarming and believes that Islam is a religion:

“A recent issue of The Economist devotes 14 pages to the Arab world's current realities under the front-cover heading: "Waking from its sleep." I have a copy at hand, and I ask some people around me what their opinion is. Most shrug their shoulders dismissively. One venerable elder, having seen much, offers the view that France provided the best years of North African history, and that what followed was and is plunder and misrule of the powerful over the weak.”

Arab history is nothing but a plunder of the weak by the strong and fanatical. Islam and the Arab moon cult was spread by war and the allure of booty, women and civilized life in urban centres far from the impecunious Arab peninsula. It was not spread by group hugs and happy faces.

“The lack of democracy across the Arab world means a culture functioning without accountability. It also means people are adept in blaming others for their circumstances, and living a life of denial as the means for coping with the absurdity of their situation.”

The Arab death cult has never been interested in freedom or individual responsibility. Read the Koran. Islam is a systemic exploitation of the singular person, for the benefit of the cult. Submit, obey, communalize, do not think independently, and follow rules and rituals. That is the demand of the Koran. Hate the enemy – be it the Jew, the Christ follower, or some kaffir addicted to modernity.

“Here in North Africa, the civilizational breeze from Europe provides for a thin facade of modernity over the drab reality of a dysfunctional political economy. Here Islamism, or political Islam, is the nostalgic expression of many Arabs, undone by false pride and fanaticism.”

Arab culture has nothing in common with Jewish or Western culture. Judeo-Christianity is filled with ethical statements, injunctions about gratitude and self-worth; and ideas about responsibility and individuality. The Arab Mein Kampf has no such corollaries. Arab culture which created the Koran and the Meccan moon cult, has never cared about women, children, life or hope. It is fixated on blood and death.

“But embracing modernity and democracy whole-heartedly will require fundamentally reforming Islam, as Europe did with Christianity.”

And that will never happen.

“The Economist has it wrong. The Arab world is not waking, rather it prefers sleep-walking as a means of avoiding excruciating decisions necessary for the fundamental reform of its culture.”

The Economist and most Western media outlets have always been utterly wrong about Islam and about the Arab world. Arabs squat on 3.000 year old Jewish and Christian territories. It is the Arabs who slave trade, mutilate women, stone women, honour kill girls, launch rockets against Jewish day care centres, blow up less fundamentalist Muslims in Iraq with car bombs; and pour out blood to 'purify' the world for their moon deity.

Arab culture is a mockery of human existence. A system of hate, violence and pre-modern barbarity.
