Thomas Mann observed, “Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.”
As Kipatrick relates, the West is being attacked from within by secular Marxism and Atheism; in alliance with resident Moslems some 15 million in North America, and 45 million in Western Europe. The exogenous threat posed by Islam to Western Civilization in the political-military sphere is – with the great exception of a nuclear Iran – rather minimal. However, the internal threat by a Moslem 5th column in alliance with the brain-dead theology of cultural relativism and political Marxism, is indeed a vicious threat to survival.
“Civilizations die from suicide, not murder”, wrote the eminent historian Arnold J. Toynbee. Predictions of the suicide of the West have been around now for a long while, but that doesn’t mean it’s never going to happen. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and it didn’t fall in a day; but its fall—when it did come—seems to have had something to do with its becoming what we would now call an “entertainment society”.
The viral disease of pop culture is a manifestation of a deep cultural weakness and self-loathing. There is precious little in pop culture that is intelligent or relevant. Yet games, sports, shows, the travails of entertainment gods and goddesses enthrals the mass. How sad. The relativism, self-hatred, superficiality of pop culture has infected all societal institutions, rendering Western Civilisation either meaningless, or worse, a stain of darkness and evil when compared to the 'glories' of non-Western 'cultures'. And, as Kilpatrick rightly comments, the church or churches in the West are far too often ignorant and complicit in allowing this stealth Jihad, this cultural Marxist obsession to destroy the West, to occur.
We live in a world of 'me', where the me is now god. An 'evolved' god to be sure, derived from walking fish, the clever mouse, the curious lemur, according to the 'meist' theology of evolution. 'I used to crawl and sniff, therefore I am'.
“Without theism, men tend to gravitate toward “meism”; and judging from the destructive fallout of the sixties and seventies, meism is inimical to the social order: people who live only to gratify themselves in the moment are generally disinclined to have children or to care for them if they do have them.”
Meism leads to family breakdown, illiteracy, widespread ignorance of true history and civilizational development; and apathy. If you are just a bunch of molecules knocking around by chance what point is there to life ? What purpose ? And if the god of chance created you; there can be no morality; no standards; no ethos. Why not simply kill off your competitors, your neighbours and steal and plunder in the name of 'survival of the fittest' ?
This is certainly the attitude of Islam or the cult of submission. Kill, dominate, control.
“Submission is not just a significant concept in Islam; it’s the main concept. And Western leaders still seem unable to understand that the more the West submits, the more submission will be required.”
Appeasement just means that the crocodile, as Churchill commented, might eat you last.
Muhammad said, “I have been commanded to fight against people, till they testify that there is no god but Allah.” Islam is, in effect, an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims.”
Islam, as Kilpatrick rightly claims, is not a religion. It is a fascist political cult dedicated to destroy all non-Moslems and their belief systems. Period. Read the Koran. Most of it is a screed against unbelievers with cries to kill them and torture them.
“The first task for the West must be to reclassify Islam as a political system with religious aspects rather than a religion with political aspects. Islam is an alternative form of government in competition with Western governments that seeks to weaken and, ultimately, replace them.”
Mosques are not churches but hate-speech centers:
“80 percent of mosques in America conveyed a supremacist vision and provided their members with anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, pro-sharia, and pro-jihad literature.”
Maybe the politically-correct buffoons might want to read the Koran and attend one of these hate-fests.
Christianity is the opposite of Islam. Islam or the cult of submission is thus the anti-christ and anti-Christian political movement dedicated to its destruction. Never in history have 2 different world-views existed with one – Islam – a fascist cult renamed by the big-brains as a 'religion'.
“Islam spread by the power of the sword, Christianity spread because of its powerful message of sacrificial love.”
And wither the Church ? Too many witless idiots in the Church propose that Islam is a religion; that there are bridges which can be built between the 'faiths'; that 1400 years of Jihad, murder, slavery, female and unbeliever subjugation is really just an anomaly; and that most Moslems are 'moderates'. What nonsense. What a bunch of cowards.
“For Christians not to speak out about wife-beating, forced marriages, genital mutilation, and honor killings is a failure of charity, as well as a failure of courage. Christians are supposed to stand up for the downtrodden, the oppressed, and the abused.”
Indeed Christians are supposed to defend the undefended. 20.000 daughters slaughtered every year by Moslem families. Christians, animists, Jews, Buddhists and others attacked, murdered, raped or exiled by Moslems each month, each year, each decade....yet what do we hear ? Inter-faith dialogue is better than 'confrontation'. That is a code word for faineance. Being a coward in the face of a fascism just makes you an accomplice to murder.
