Wilders, Liberty & Totalitarianism

March 10, 2010

Dear FOX News,

While I appreciate your discussing Islam, I respectfully submit that unless you have studied the theo-political doctrine of Islam – the Koran, Sira (biography of Mohammed) and Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed), and its “divine” Sharia law you are very much out of your element in discussing Islam or Muslim behavior. Someone on your staff must immerse themselves in a study of the tenets of Islam, as totalitarian Islam embodies the greatest global and domestic threat to liberty, equality and peace.

Islam’s express desire is to bring the world, Muslim and non-Muslim, under sharia law. If Islam is weak for a period of time, the Islamic community will appear peaceful; however as it gains in numbers and strength the Islamic community will attempt to impose sharia. For examples see Islamic demands and actions in the United Kingdom, France, Kenya or Indonesia. Immigration is the first step in this slow conquest, followed by demands and intimidation, then intolerance, discrimination and violence.

A Muslim who strives in defense or support of Islam may engage, indeed is required to engage in or fund, armed or covert jihad. Islam offers infidels three options, first conversion – an invitation to Islam (Osama bin Laden did this in a letter to former President Bush), then subjugation under sharia (as the Copts are in Egypt today), or jihad war until you convert, accept subjugation or die (reference Sudan, etc).

When a man risks his life and that of his family to speak the truth, when a man stands for principles, for the centuries and souls it took to create systems of governance where liberty is allowed and personal freedom largely protected – you, an AMERICAN media news and opinion outlet should not decry that person for doing so. Perhaps you should pull up a chair and learn something, rather than be in line to squelch the life out of that canary…he is warning you, too, if you would only listen.

Sharia law condemns freedom, forbids equality, and denies traditional sovereignty; it is legitimate that we reject it. The call to sharia law in America is a call to overthrow the US Constitution. Jihad, whether state organized or by individuals must be recognized for what it is, the followers of Islam engaging in war to advance Islam and force the imposition of Islamic sharia law. Please educate yourselves; you may choose cultural suicide, I do not.

To liberty under the US Constitution,

A Matter of Ideology

March 9, 2010

The conflict between representative governance and Islam is not about freedom of speech or religion. It is about ideology. Islam is an ideology totally intolerant of non-adherents and both restrictive and discriminatory of its own believers.  This post is an evolution of a my previous thoughts on this subject.

I shall define “ideology” as a set of beliefs or precepts that form the basis of a thought process or political system, particularly one that is resistant to outside influence and nearly incapable of self-modification to adapt to changing circumstances.

I further define principled constitutional governance as a collection of ideas and standards that form a political system, informed by history and intended to meet the needs of the governed. This does not a hedonistic haven create, but rather establishes a framework for its citizenry to pursue their goals with the maximum liberty and minimal obstruction to the affairs of others. While this may also be termed an ideology, this system is contemplative and both aware of its surroundings and responsive to circumstances within its established framework.

Islam is an ideology that makes the attainment of Political Objectives a Religious Duty. The objective is to see the entire world under the “divine” (religious) law of sharia; to obliterate man-made law. So, Islam is both theological and political, a theo-political ideology – a rigid, totalitarian, intolerant, supremacist ideology. All this is found in the koran and sunnah, detailed in the body of Islamic sharia law and implemented in nations practicing Islamic jurisprudence.

We free nations can call Islam an ideology and we can talk about an ideology freely. However one cannot talk about implementing this ideology, about replacing our Constitutional government – for crossing that line is sedition. So, we can analyze Islam and sharia law, read about it and study its consequences in Islamic lands, its effects on Western “host” nations, however the second anyone talks about implementing sharia they are committing act of sedition against the sovereign nation they are in. Religion? Practice whatever you want as long as you leave ME, the Infidel out of it and keep your hands OFF my Constitution. Speech? Speak freely, but do not incite violence, genocide or insurrection.

Continued ignorance, accommodation, appeasement and ‘hopeful assimilation’ is aiding and abetting cultural suicide.
