Western Civilisation

Until the advent of materialism and 19th c. dogma, Western Civilisation was  superior to anything Islam had developed.  Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam.  Proof of this resides in the 'modern' world and the unending political-economic and spiritual poverty of Muslim states and regions.  Squatting on richer civilisations is not 'progress'.  Islam is pagan, totalitarian, and irrational.

Islam and Democracy?

Jihadists and Islamic fascists are skilled at abusing democracy.

by Ferdinand III


Weimar Germany fell to the Nazi's due to many reasons, including economic stagnation; extreme nationalism; a victim narrative; apathy and ruthless, terrorist tactics. The singular innovation of the Nazi party was to attack its enemies using the ferocious 'brownshirts' or terrorist militia, whilst controlling democratic elections. Islamist jihadists and fascists are adept at using the same methods with the same skill to subvert pluralism; quiet 'moderates'; and develop a terror state.


The real world as well the philosophical world of Islamic doctrine makes this obvious. Islamic thinkers and leaders, those truly committed to an Islamic state, have no interest in pluralism of any variety. Islamic states are one party affairs with no democratic, party, or religious diversity or opposition. They are creations which find corollaries with the polycratic governance of a totalitarian state with the added power of a melded ‘church’ and state complex, something even the Nazis did not achieve.  Consider some real-world examples.


Saudi Arabia: This great 'ally' in 2022, recently executed 81 people for the crime of criticising Sharia (barbarism not Law).  This country has no political parties whatsoever. None. Islamic Sharia law apparently solves all disputes, agitations, problems and mundane things like dissent, opinion, and choice.


Algeria: Is a state riven by war between a secularist-Muslim government and Islamic terror groups. In 1991 the FIS or Islamic Front de Salut [rather an odd name, roughly meaning, the front of good Islam], won more than 50 % of the popular vote and declared that it would ban all other parties. The secular government and military disallowed the election, which led to a civil war in which probably more than 100.000 people are dead. An offshoot of the FIS, called the GIA, is a radical and very powerful Salafist [meaning roughly 'the way of Islam'] sect, which has declared that all political parties must be eradicated. Nice.


Sudan: In 1989 the radical Sufist-Wahabi sect the National Islamic Front seized power, abolished political parties, and instituted a terror regime. Darfur and the slaughtering of non-Arabs or darker skinned Muslims by the Arab dominated NIS is the logical result. Yet no one in the media describes Darfur as a Muslim killing ground where Arabs are eradicating non-Arab people.  South Sudan is a new country, created by Sudanese Christians and non-Muslims to protect themselves against the Jihad.  Fake News will never mention this.


Egypt: Though the radical Egyptian Brotherhood is officially banned, it captures dozens of seats in various elections; and stated that it would seize power and suppress all political parties. It has been waging a low-level civil war against the government and civilians, including tourists, for decades.


Pakistan: Many radical Islamist parties exist and have recently been rioting and dissenting from since 2001, persecuting Christians and those insufficiently pious Muslims. As with parties in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia and Nigeria, these Wahabbist parties have declared that political pluralism is incompatible with a true Islamic state.


Iraq: Sunni radicals under various banners have a controlling influence in the Iraqi parliament. The Sunni Salafists have repeatedly declared that a democratic system is incompatible with the goals of Islam and have promised a Talibanic style of governance, compatible with a pure interpretation of the Koran.


Somalia: The Islamic court militia of Somalia declared in 2006, that a Sharia law regime was the only acceptable form of government. Non-Muslims are simply ostracised and demonised in Somalia, attacked, raped and sometimes killed.


Iran: The Islamic Revolutionary Guard abolished all political plurality in 1979. Elections are held in Iran, but votes can only be cast for regime approved Islamist parties.


Lebanon: Hizbollah [party of Allah or god], controls most of the country outside of Beirut. It is an Iranian financed terror group dedicated to eradicating Israel and establishing a radical Baathist state in Lebanon allied with Syria. It is a great example of Nazi tactics – use a terror militia to dominate a country and kill dissenters, whilst creating a parallel political and social system to take over the nominative state. In creating a parallel state Hizbollah enjoys military and political primacy.


Al Qaeda: Radical lunatics within the Al Qaeda network which is decimated but still lingering; have constantly declared that elections are un-Islamic and political parties unnecessary. In this Wahabbist view, only Sharia Law and Islamic conformity are necessary for society.


Hamas: Backed by Syria and Iran, Hamas constitutes the main power in 'Palestine' or Arab held territory of Israel. Hamas of course wants Israel's complete destruction. In order to achieve this, they must first wage and win their internal civil war with 'moderate' Fatah faction. Fatah only wants to annihilate Israel through demography, whilst Hamas prefers a military genocidal solution. Hence Fatah is moderate.


Turkey: Current Prime Minister Erdogan is the head of the Virtue Party – by all accounts an Islamist party with a secular agenda. The great debate in Turkey is over the real objectives of the VP. Given the pronounced propaganda in schools and on state media, which exhorts Islamist ideals, it is rather clear that Turkey is moving away from secularism, towards the Islamist ideal of a totalitarian-Koranic premised governance.


These are real world examples. In the real, ie. non-UN, non-EU world, Islamism, or radical fascism is a mutable and growing force. The radical Muslims are adept at using democratic processes and whatever opportunity is presented to them, to subvert plurality and freedom.


In Western Europe there are some 40 million Muslims growing by more than a million per annum.  For Muslims, the ‘faith’ and society are not independent.  There is no life outside Sharia.  The entire governance structure is monolithic.  Most of these Muslims in Western Europe now and in the future, adhere to some interpretation of Sharia based-Muhammadanism.  More than a few believe that they will conquer Europe and the UK through procreation and a fanatical commitment to the Al-Lah or moon idol, overcoming the atheist apathy and turgid sloth of the native populations.  Given the examples listed from around the world, the Jihad to establish a singular and ‘total’ Muhammadan rule is on-going, violent, real and ignored at civilisation’s own peril.
