If all else fails, read the instructions. They’re in the Koran.
Mohammad was not alone in his lice ridden cave. But as the old joke goes, you’re never alone with delusions. Whatever Moe was afflicted with in his fevered little criminal mind, it sure has spread. One mans mental illness projected over 13 centuries. Sadly the other reptiles found Mohammad way too cold blooded and well, a freaky bastard who just wouldn’t shut up and eat his flies and bugs. Legend has it that he devoured the lizards too, just as he said he would and just as a minority of the easy going gecko’s suspected all along.
"It wasn't meant to be a game!" Rollerball. 
In the original Rollerball film, a load of old rubbish from my teenage movie going years, there's a computer that holds all the world's knowledge. Must've been the size of Arizona. Oh that's right...it was the future. Yeah sure. It looked just like 1975, only neater. Apparently this computer had lost, and rather ironically I feel, the entire 13th century!
Yes, that century. If only we could. New York Times: "Norman Jewison's lumbering 1975 "Rollerball", a well-intentioned [why?] though heavy-handed assault on capitalism and sanctioned blood lust". [That's the movie, not Islamism.]
"...a movie that wasn't successful financially or artistically in the first place, then ''Rollerball'' fits the bill. The current version, however, like its predecessor, fails as entertainment...the sober-minded original was as graceful as a tap-dancing rhino, but it is just as boring and as obvious". [Gee, maybe they do mean Islam?]
My Father was a builder and I recall that the first sentence of the title of this post was originally printed on the top of certain paint tins. I thought it was kind of neat and curiously true of human nature. Sherlock Holmes liked to say that once the impossible has been eliminated, whatever is left, however improbable is most likely to be the truth.
Ok. Now dig this. I know the following is a link from the “All this and world war too” post, but it’s so good, so important, so vast, so profoundly researched, so extremely well annotated, as well as deeply, deeply scholarly and very much at the core facts of “the filth of Islam”, as Christopher Hitchens has rightly said, that I want to feature this. Take a week off to get through it all though. It covers almost everything but the dance cards for the Riyadh Fun Palace. No, really.
If it was compulsory reading at schools...wouldn’t that be interesting? Every day, Islamist geeks relentlessly state their case loud and clear, and it’s straight from their killer/pervert/paedophile/rapist/bandit/Jew hating Reptile King founder and his crude, turgid rather unreadable ravings. And relentlessly too, much of our clueless authorities, MSM, educators and Hell, most everyone, continue to not listen. Great, eh? And often not at all, to what millions of Islamist/Muslims are saying to us, what they mean and what they are empirically doing globally 24/7. Like, er, right now.
The Krazy Koran, like Mein Kampf but without the laughs, is the doctrine, document and the white paper that spells out everything you need to know explicitly in hellish and nihilistic detail. Thus, most of the MSM, educators, academics, military intelligence and government authorities have incredibly never read it! Maybe they’re waiting for the movie? It’s out. It’s called Obsession. No, really. Follow the, link kids.
Here’s my naff idea for a voice over: “Out of the 7th century comes a monster so strangely and immensely evil and deceptive, that only the mind of the Devil Mohammad, cast into the 9th Circle of Hell by Dante, could conceive of it. Islam: Coming to a cinema near you to burn it down”.
No go? So dig this excellent excerpt instead, by the fantastically scholarly Jeffrey Imm. His monumental efforts grabbed me as they should anyone. All hail The Great Imm!
“'Ere! It’s ‘im what done it!”
"Courage - of - our convictions... is more than just a phrase. It is an ethical challenge to generations of Americans past, present, and future. It is the fuel that burns the beacon of equality and liberty. America has a history of heroes that lived for and died for such courage - to stand as an example to those who would come after them.
Will our generation be able to rise to such a challenge, or will it find the burden of defending our values of equality and liberty too heavy? The choice to defend these values will be a costly sacrifice, but an even more costly sacrifice would be to fail to do so”. Jeffrey Imm.
A. The Islamic Supremacist Declaration of War on Equality and Freedom.
From a counter terrorist perspective, the Al Qaeda declarations of war against the United States in 1996 and 1998 are widely examined as a basis for a "war on terror." However, the Islamic supremacist challenges to equality and liberty have been occurring long before declarations of war by Al Qaeda or any other Islamic supremacist terrorist groups.
Three years after the defeat of the Nazi supremacists, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly advocated a Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) on human rights, freedom, and equality. In addition to abstention by Communist totalitarian nations, the Islamic supremacist Kingdom of Saudi Arabia refused to support such a resolution on equality.
In 1981, the Islamic supremacist Republic of Iran effectively issued a Sharia-based declaration of war on such ideas "when its representative affirmed that the UDHR represented a secular interpretation of the Judeo-Christian tradition which could not be implemented by Muslims; if a choice had to be made between its stipulations and 'the divine law of the country,' Iran would always choose Islamic law."
The Islamic supremacists leading Iran were more forthright in their position than Saudi Arabia; they stated clearly and unequivocally that equality and Sharia were clearly incompatible. In the midst of the Cold War, few truly appreciated this as the Sharia declaration of war on equality and freedom that it was.
In 2000, a year before the 9/11 attacks, the 57 nation Islamist supremacist organization, the Organization of the Islamic Conference, officially resolved to support the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam as an alternative document that says people have "freedom and right to a dignified life in accordance with the Islamic Shari'ah" -- an exclusionary ideology only for Muslims that denies freedom of religion and many other fundamental human rights of equality.
In 2001, nearly two months before the 9/11 attacks, the European Court of Human Rights determined that "the institution of Sharia law and a theocratic regime, were incompatible with the requirements of a democratic society."
Throughout the world on a daily basis, as analysts pore over the details of violent groups and their tactics, the details of terrorist finance, and the details of battlefield theatres, the anti-democratic stories of Sharia repression are widely ignored by many as the war of ideas with Islamic supremacism are not fully understood even today”.
B. "All Men Are Created Equal" Versus Sharia.
Tacticians believe the war is between Al-Qaeda and the West, the Taliban and the West, Hezbollah and the West, between Shiite and Sunni "extremists," or between terrorists and those who advocate non-violence. But this tactical view of world war only sees snapshots of individual theaters of violent activity and propaganda. The true aspects of the war remain a clash of ideological views, not merely individual political demands or battles.
Many in the United States and United Kingdom government leadership positions definitely do not want debate on this clash of ideological views, because they rightly fear that this will lead to more, not less confrontation. The historical mistake that they make is the assumption that such confrontation is something we don't need and something we can avoid. American leaders who fear such confrontation ignore the historical lessons of how other supremacist ideologies were fought and defeated.
The root of the real war is the ideas of equality and liberty versus Sharia and an Islamic supremacist form of societal control. Little is written about this war, which has numerous fronts around the world -- violent and non-violent, with propaganda fronts, economic fronts, demographic fronts, legal fronts, educational fronts.
It is really what happens in this war of ideas, not in the individual battles in Iraq, Afghanistan, or elsewhere that will be the deciding factor in our victory or defeat. But to understand this war of ideas, and understand the application of history in fighting supremacism to dealing with Islamic supremacism, we must understand the dual aspects of freedom and how they remain the greatest weapon in America's arsenal.
While Islamic supremacists view their growing population as their greatest weapon, America has its twin towers of freedom -- liberty and equality - which combined provides the greatest weapon on Earth against supremacism. Liberty and equality are the twin towers of America that can not and will not fall as long as American retains its commitment to its national values. America has proven the value of these hard-won ideological weapons against supremacist ideologies repeatedly throughout our history.
Liberty alone is not enough to fight supremacism. Liberty is only half of the equation of freedom; equality is the other completing half of freedom that provides the values to truly challenge any supremacist ideology -- the values of America that all men and women are created equal. We learned that nearly 90 years after America's creation, and we fought to rectify this with a dual commitment for equality as well as liberty.
In the larger, strategic war against Islamic supremacism, it is America's unique historical experience in the war of ideas against other supremacist organizations that our leaders must examine in finding answers and strategies in fighting Islamic suprematism today.
...Sometimes the correct thing to do in terms of tactical measures is not the right thing to do in terms of defending American values. When America is only viewed as a nation-state of citizens, it is easy to view tactical measures as the appropriate focus. But America is more than merely the geo-political nation state of the United States of America - it is an idea, it is a principle, for many it is a dream -- of equality and liberty. When Americans don't stand by the courage of their convictions, it doesn't just hurt America - it hurts the world.
Every oppressed person that looks to America as a beacon of hope in a dark world is mocked when we fail to stand tall. They are mocked to look at "their America" -- as corrupt and weak as "everyone else.
…Incredibly, in the minds of some, the Taliban are being viewed as "multi-faceted" and individuals available for negotiation, and rehabilitation back into political governance. Could you imagine suggestions that the Nazis or the Ku Klux Klan were multi-faceted and that attempts should be made to bring such supremacist ideologies into "mainstream" political parties? Yet this is precisely what has been suggested for the Taliban in Afghanistan by members of the United Nations and western political leaders.
The root of such dysfunctional behavior is the unwillingness to discuss the ideology behind the Taliban's actions. "Islamic supremacism" (or the westernized term of "Islamism") and its basis in Sharia are not a topic for discussion in western debate.
Per my recent writing on Pakistan, the growth of the influence of Sharia throughout the nuclear weapons-armed Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the efforts of the Taliban to enforce such Sharia law by gunpoint, beheadings, and bombs is also largely ignored by much of the news media and by civil liberty activists. Debate on Sharia is now officially forbidden in United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) public hearings, as recently addressed.
-- Where once bombings and killings by white supremacist organizations were condemned by an informed American public and media, now such bombings and killings by Islamic supremacist organizations around the world go widely unnoticed and unreported, unless they happen in Iraq.
-- Where once marches and rallies were held calling for action against white supremacists, now marches and rallies are held calling for inaction against Islamic supremacists, including calls to release from prison Islamic supremacists associated with terror groups.
-- Where once white supremacist groups were excoriated as bullies, now much of academia, the media, and many individuals in American leadership apologize for Islamic supremacist groups around the world as victims, regardless of who is killed or maimed for the furtherance of such a supremacist ideology.
-- Where once we challenged white supremacist segregated schools, now American leadership chooses to ignore Islamic madrassas that teach hate and violence, including ones in the United States funded by the Islamic supremacist nation of Saudi Arabia.
-- Where once we alienated nations that advocated supremacist ideologies, now American leadership recognizes nations such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan that advocate or support Islamic supremacist ideologies as "allies."
-- Where once we sought to destroy the remnants of Nazi Aryan supremacism in defeated Germany, now American leadership allows so-called non-violent Islamic supremacism to continue to grow and gain influence in Afghanistan and Iraq.
-- Where once the media and the creative world publicized the plight of Jews trying to escape Nazi supremacism, now there is a concerted silence by most of the media and the creative world on the plight of those who leave Islam trying to escape from death punishment as "apostates" in Islamic supremacist nations.
-- Where once academia viewed white supremacists as ignorant social outcasts, now today's academia invites representatives of Islamic supremacist organizations as members of forums on homeland security.
-- Where once leaders of America's news media attacked the savage nature of white supremacist ideology, now leaders of America's news media refuse to acknowledge the existence of Islamic supremacism, and the Washington Post and New York Times allows Islamic supremacist representatives of Hamas to publish articles in their newspapers.
… Supremacist ideologies, by their very nature, are at de facto war with equality. Failure to defend the ideology of equality is a de facto victory for supremacism.
So in an effort to reinvent old policy, today's UK has gone to a "War on Criminals" mode (since they won't use the word "Jihadists"), continuing to avoid recognizing the threat of Islamic supremacism as an ideology, and continuing to tolerate Islamic supremacist organizations (such as Hizb ut-Tahrir), while using terminology and public relations efforts (such as training Bobbies on Sharia) to convince British Muslims not to accept "extremism" or to support "criminals."
In fact, this "new policy" is not much more different from the "old policy" on Islamic supremacist ideology, except that if Islamic supremacists make direct, public, and prosecutable threats, then they can expect to be arrested, at least until they are turned loose again.
This "new strategy" by UK is not intended to confront Islamic supremacism as an ideology at all, which is why the chorus of denial on Islamic supremacism find it so attractive. It is only intended to discourage and temporarily disrupt Islamic supremacist terrorist plots from being actualized on a rolling basis. What the UK government fails to appreciate is that it can't simply keep its ship of state afloat by endlessly bailing water as the hole in the bottom continues to grow larger.
So with every new Sharia court established in the UK, with every new instance where British courts accepts Sharia, with every new pronouncement that Sharia law should be accepted, with every new comment that the Taliban and Al-Qaeda should be negotiated with, the empowerment of Islamic supremacism continues to grow as an ideology that can affect change within the United Kingdom.
While the UK government believes that such "tolerance" and "understanding" of Islamic supremacism defuses violence, it fails to understand that weakness in its national values encourages others to gravitate to stronger, more defined values, such as Islamic supremacism".
