Like many of my fellow Americans, I am outraged … seething at the response, or lack thereof, from our President (et al) to the happenings in the Middle East. Please do not for one second believe the lies propagated by the media in coordination with the State Dept that this violence GLOBALLY is a response to a minuscule film expressing the views of one man. It is NOT! The fact that it simultaneously occurred in several nations on 9/11 should tell a reasonably intelligent person this. I doubt I have all the facts straight – perhaps none of us do, since the media refuses to do its job, but this much I DO know … We are being duped and manipulated. By whom? To what end? This is an EXTREME game of Super Politics, and you and I and the victims in Libya are among the pieces in play.It is such a joke that our President has received the Nobel “Peace” award … un-freaking-believable! But please do not for one second believe this President has failed. He has accomplished EXACTLY what he intended – or what his “handlers” intended. He has set the American people against one another, driven dividing walls between us by race, by faith, by our dreams for the future. He has all but destroyed the most affluent, productive economy on earth! But most significantly, he has broken our will … or has he? This remains to be seen.
We must also understand that we are crippled in our understanding of what is happening in the Middle East. Our minds do not function the way theirs do because we have experienced FREEDOM! To us, freedom means choosing our own way of life, our own goals, our own beliefs, our own education, our own spouse (singular). For the most part, freedom in the USA means living the way we please. To a Muslim, however, freedom means something altogether different. FREEDOM means freedom from the Laws of man. Think about that! It means freedom FROM the Laws of man (Constitution) and freedom to live by Sharia Law – Allah’s law which happens to be in contradiction to God’s Law according to the Judeo-Christian tradition.
the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness: to uphold the justice of a cause.
rightfulness or lawfulness, as of a claim or title; justness of ground or reason: to complain with justice.
the moral principle determining just conduct.
conformity to this principle, as manifested in conduct; just conduct, dealing, or treatment.
the administering of deserved punishment or reward.
On the other hand, to the Muslim, justice is according to Shariah – a totally different standard which will never COEXIST with ANY other form of Justice. Let’s get some historical context.
“Muslims have flocked to the West for the last several decades in the hope of finding a better life. But while they left corruption and poverty behind in their home countries, they are now experiencing the evaporation of the illusions they entertained about the ideal life they had expected to find in the West. Instead of seeing the success of their “Dawa”, and seeing increasing numbers of Westerners embrace Islam, or at least come to appreciate its beauty, they are now being marginalized and villianized as the specter of a new Cold War, where rampant “Islamophobia” is making their lives increasingly difficult in general.
“How did this happen? How did they not see this coming? Should they have stayed in their home countries? Was there something wrong with their “Dawa”? Or, is this just a temporary situation, and Westerners will eventually see the beauty of Islam as long as Muslims continue what we they are doing and try hard enough?
“The fact is, Muslims are suffering from many forms of great ignorance that prevent them from not only recognizing what their true duties as Muslims are, but of understanding exactly what is happening around them.
“How did this come about? For centuries Muslims lived under unified rule, led by successive empires, primarily the Abbassids and eventually the Ottoman Turks. Also, centuries of pious effort were exerted to codify the message of Islam into a legal system apt at governing the affairs of large civilizations. This system is known as Shariah and in Sunni Islam is divided into four mutually compatible schools, called Mathhabs.
“This Islamic legal system was the result of great vigilance with regards to the creeping influence of corruptive ideas, which would sometimes splinter into various movements and sects. However, as long as there was a political power in place, these splinter groups could be kept in check, and the sanctity of orthodox Islam proclaimed as the dominant one.
Now the article from which the above is taken goes on to apologize for the corruption of Islam and promise its restoration. In the meantime, however, the government of Islam is wreaking havoc throughout the world which, if you think about it, is pretty darn significant. It points out that Islam is not just a religion, but a “legal system apt at governing the affairs of large civilizations.” This exempts it from protection under the US Constitution! It is NOT a religion to be protected, but a usurping government system to which we must be alert!
“No meaningful dialog on Islam is possible without clearing the obstacles silencing the opposing view.
1. Intimidation inherent in challenging an ideology clearly mired in terrorism and issues.
2. Stubborn denial of conscience and strong prejudice against even considering ugly hypotheses.
3. Shunning of inductive reasoning that observes evident yet unpleasant associations.
4. Disinformation and unawareness of historical and other relevant facts.
Blasphemy, fatwas and defamation aside, this topic is so taboo that the few who dare raise it must either remain anonymous or fear for their security. The case against Islam is so suppressed that it is conspicuously absent from the debates. In fact, apologists so totally dominate the discourse that they have convinced the public that the politically correct media are anti-Islam for just reporting the ubiquitous violence perpetrated in its name.
(2) Denial of Conscience
Most people think they are intellectually above average (a collective impossibility), fair and open-minded. Yet most lack the courage to respond to even the most abject injustices [e. g. the classic four ghost-clad women following their husband] and failures of “alternate” cultures. Instead, they rationalize. “Our misunderstanding”, “different values”, “followers gone astray”, “usurpers sullying the good name”, etc. Few are willing to ponder, let alone admit, if a philosophy could still devastate today (call it 1913 or 1938 syndrome), especially if it were a religion, the theological sanctioning of a society. Never mind that virtually all must be false anyway, as humans create gods, not vice-versa. True open-mindedness consists of contemplating all premises and weighing the evidence, not of refusing to draw conclusions no matter how strong the case.
(3) Shunned Associative Thinking
Reasoning involves deduction and induction (the basis of the scientific process: modeling and inferring from observations, relations and patterns). The prevailing mind-set proscribes induction, since it exposes and measurably confirms the reality of ethnic behavior [e. g. Russians generally prefer Vodka; Germans beer]. Not all ethnic behavior is benign, but the unpalatable is dismissed as oversimplifying, generalizing, and stereotyping.
(4) Disinformation and Unawareness of the Past
That the general consciousness fails to identify the single most murderous force ever testifies to its sheer power. Much of history is sanitized to please it (witness W. Bush hailing Islam as a “Religion of Peace” just after, in its name, thousands of his citizens were crushed alive, and Negationism, the harmony-seeking whitewashing of Muslim atrocities in India, where the largest genocide ever occurred). This cleansing of the truth is insidious. It creates a sinister fantasy and undermines credibility.

“To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible,” Clinton said at a meeting with Moroccan officials in Washington. “It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and provoke rage. But as we said yesterday, there is no justification — none at all — for responding to this video with violence.”
