Muslim Roulette: Islam vs Muslims??

A is A. Islam is Islam. There is no such thing as ‘Good’ Islam vs ‘Bad’ Islam.

Islam is a totalitarian religion, but Muslims are individual human beings who may or may not practice their religion. One way I’ve been putting it recently is that your average Muslim is morally superior to Mohammad, they’re individuals who may or may not be a problem. It is Islam’s consistent practitioners — organized Islam — that is the problem.

There are active Muslims and there are passive Muslims, the faithful and the unfaithful within the religion, but there is no obvious way to tell the difference between them, which has its benefits for those who are committed to spreading Islam by any means necessary, since they can hide among their less devout co-religionists. Mohammed said “War is deceit” and his most devout followers have misled non-Muslims about the true nature of Islam to this day. When Islam, the very antithesis of peace, is sold to us by Muslims and Islamophiles as being the very definition of peace, and this Big Lie actually gains traction, it would have made Hitler blush. But even Muslims who have a moderate knowledge of their religion understand that Islam must be misrepresented to appear at all appealing to non-Muslims, so to that extent, they’re in on this Islamically sanctioned deceit.

But since the enemy is objectively weak, his major weapon against us is us, from our multiculturalism which the unicultural enemy exploits, to our crippling political correctness which ‘protects’ us from the truth we need to know and act upon, to our irrational tolerance of the intolerant. And then there are Muslims who are moderately Islamic, but who advertise themselves as “Moderate Muslims”, who have hijacked the normatively immoderate Islam, not by thoroughly repudiating the inherent violence within Islam, but by merely mouthing the words “Islam means peace”, and then allowing our desire to believe it to do the rest. The widespread usage of the term “Moderate Muslim” is a tacit confession of Islam’s extremism. When is the last time you heard the term ‘Moderate Christian’? ‘Moderate Jew’? ‘Moderate Hindu’? ‘Moderate Buddhist’?

But let me add this, after making it clear that Muslims are individuals who may or may not be following Islam: Most Muslims have shown us that in a conflict between Islam and the West, the majority of them will side with Islam. They’ve made it clear, in their indifferent silence and inaction in the face of the daily horrors committed in their religion’s name, that in the end, they don’t give a damn about anything except Islam and its reputation. I’ve read one too many accounts of Muslims whose first response after a particularly horrific Muslim terrorist attack was not to express concern with the victims, but to run to the rescue of Islam, the ideological source of the attack itself. There are rare Muslims who understand the horror of jihad and personally reject it, but they are naturally marginalized within the religion and are seen by Islam’s leaders as heretics and even threats to the religion’s spread.

“Education by Murder”, as Daniel Pipes writes of it. The price we’re paying for not knowing the full truth about Islam is too high, but it looks like it will take more death and destruction for the civilized world to learn about Islam and the evil at the heart of it before we are ready to ruthlessly act on our behalf against it. (In regards to Daniel Pipes, I appreciate his efforts against Jihad and I know that counter-jihadists don’t necessarily have to agree with every conclusion we as individuals arrive at, so long as the big picture is in sight…… but his unwarranted preoccupation with ‘Moderate Islam’ is a Pipes Dream, it is his subjective wishes overstepping reality. There is no such thing as “Moderate Islam”, no such distinguishable version of Islam that is organized around a group of Muslims who reject jihad. When a Muslim concedes the Islamic point that the Koran is the verbatim word of Allah, who is he to deem himself to be Allah’s editor?)

Muslims will only rethink Islam, will only consider transforming the religion into something that is has never been, when their desire to Islamize and destroy the non-Muslim world is trumped by their desire to survive and live in peace.
