The Real Lesson of Charlie Hebdo

by Roger Kimball

….According to Anjem Choudary, France is responsible for the deaths of those 10 journalists and 2 policemen because it allowed Charlie Hebdo to “provoke Muslims.” It thereby, he suggests, “placed the sanctity of its citizens as risk.” His conclusion? “It is time that the sanctity of a Prophet revered by up to one-quarter of the world’s population was protected.”

My conclusion is a bit different. I believe it is time that the insane and murderous ideology of Islam is recognized for what it is, by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. USA Today got a lot of push back for publishing  Choudary’s drooling apology for murder. I am glad that they did, for it reminds us in vivid terms exactly the sort of thing we in the so-called liberal West are up against.

Liberal regimes have always suffered from this paralyzing antinomy: Liberalism implies openness to other points of view, even those points of view whose success would destroy liberalism. Tolerance to those points of view is a prescription for suicide. Intolerance betrays the fundamental premise of liberalism, i.e. openness.

Of course (may I say “of course”?), there is a sense in which the antinomy is illusory, since any robust liberalism, i.e., a liberalism buttressed by a core of conservative backbone, understands that tolerance, if it is to flourish, cannot be synonymous with capitulation to ideas that would exploit tolerance only to destroy it. The “openness” that liberal society rightly cherishes is not a vacuous openness to all points of view: it is not “value neutral.” It need not, indeed it cannot, say Yes to all comers. American democracy, for example, affords its citizens great latitude, but great latitude is not synonymous with the proposition that “anything goes.” Our society, like every society, is founded on particular positive values—the rule of law, for example, respect for the individual, religious freedom, the separation of church and state.

Islam in its current configuration denies those values. Perhaps the “revolution” that President al-Sisi hopes will eventually take place and carve out a place for Islam among the civilized religions and political systems of the world. Until that day, however, the sane response to Islam is not to pixelate images that Muslims find “offensive,” as The Daily News just did, to its shame. Nor is it to redact news stories in the hope that they will not (as Anjem Choudary put it) “provoke Muslims,” as The New York Times just did, to its shame. Were I (per impossible) editor of The New York Times, I would run those cartoons of Mohammed on the front page of the paper every day for a month. The sane response is to say No to any form of Islam that does not accommodate itself to the animating principles of liberal Western society. That means no to polygamy, no to murdering people who apostatize from Islam, no to stoning adulteresses, no to murdering homosexuals and Jews, no to treating women like chattel, no, in short, to the entire rancid menu of insanity that is contained under the rubric “Sharia.”

Aristotle observed that without courage, one cannot reliably practice the other virtues, because courage is necessary to meet the existential challenges of life. We in the West have grown pusillanimous about our foundational principles and have retreated to a vacuous pseudo-tolerance that is without foundation because it is without animating convictions. As I write, there are reports that the Kouachi brothers have been cornered and killed outside Paris. At the same time, news is coming in that another Muslim, who killed a policewoman yesterday and two hostages today, has also been killed by French authorities. It’s a start.  But the West will never be free from the murderous incursions of the sick atavism that is Islam until it rejects the timid ideology of political correctness and multiculturalism. It is just too bad if wackos like Anjem Choudary are “offended” or “provoked” by satirical cartoons. They can stew all they like in their wounded self-aggrandizing fantasies. Once they act upon them, however, they have rejected the social contract that makes civilized life in a liberal democracy possible. Having done so, they should themselves be rejected.

Ostracized by Cowardly West, Charlie Hebdo Faced the Islamists Alone

“Je Suis Charlie,” you say? Not when it mattered.

by MIKE MCNALLY

….Yesterday, much of the traditional media doubled down on its shameful behavior by again refusing to show the cartoons. Many web outlets, including The Daily Beast, Buzzfeed, and PJ Media, did publish them. One of the first newspapers spotted keeping its head below the parapet was the UK’s Telegraph — its website pixellated out a drawing of Mohammed in a photograph of a Charlie Hebdo cover. The New York Daily News  followed suit. CNN ordered its staff not to show the cartoons. The major networks refrained from doing so. The Associated Press claimed its policy was to “refrain from moving deliberately provocative images,” a policy which, it was quickly pointed out, hasn’t prevented it from selling photos of Andres Serrano’s Piss Christ.

Those organizations that bothered to offer an excuse fell back on the “offense” line, but it hardly needs saying that they’ve never felt compelled to extend the same courtesy to Christians or Jews.

The double standard can in part be explained by the fact that the liberals who dominate the U.S. media, and Britain’s globally influential BBC, believe that Islam is to be respected because it’s broadly the religion of brown people and victims of Western oppression, while Christianity can fairly be ridiculed because it’s the religion of white people and Western oppressors. And don’t, of course, get them started about the Jews.

But mostly, it comes down to the fact that journalists of every political hue have long been wary of provoking Muslims because they fear they’ll be murdered, while they know they have nothing to fear from Christians or Jews beyond strongly worded statements and perhaps a boycott.

Yesterday’s horrific events have borne out that calculation. While the talk now is of solidarity, it’s notable that in those self-regarding newsroom group shots that were doing the rounds last night the journalists were holding up “Je Suis Charlie” posters, but not Charlie’s cartoons. Because the next news organization to take a high-profile stand against Muslim extremism will find themselves every bit as alone and unloved as Charlie Hebdo did….

Paris: City of Darkness #Charlie Hebdo

by EDWARD CLINE

Had the French government adopted a consistent policy of protecting the freedom of speech, nothing like today’s attack on the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, would ever have occurred. Muslims and Islam would not be so visible in France had the government also put out the unwelcome mat to Muslim “refugees,” as most European and American governments have. With the Muslim “refugees” and “asylum seekers” came Islam, on one hand, the cruddiest “religion” on the face of the earth, and, on the other, a totalitarian system of slavery and submission, applicable to Muslims and infidels alike.

To British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey is attributed the memorable line, “The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time,” at the onset of World War I. The lamps have been going out in Europe for decades as the invitation to invade (aka, “immigrate”) was broadcast by European governments to any and all Muslims who sought refuge or asylum from living under their own creed in various pest holes in the Middle East and Africa.

These hordes came expecting to abide by their decrepit creed and also benefit from the various European welfare systems and a higher standard of living. And they came expecting the host countries (think of all European Muslim populations as parasites thriving off their hosts) to submit and defer to Islam in all cases and instances, from food served in restaurants and schools to public dress to Christmas decorations.

Dutch politician and champion of freedom of speech Geert Wilders paraphrased Grey in a speech before his 2011 trial for violating Dutch “hate speech” laws.

The lights are going out all over Europe. All over the continent where our culture flourished and where man created freedom, prosperity and civilization. Everywhere the foundation of the West is under attack….

The lights are going out all over Europe. Anyone who thinks or speaks individually is at risk. Freedom loving citizens who criticize islam, or even merely suggest that there is a relationship between islam and crime or honour killing, must suffer and are threatened or criminalized. Those who speak the truth are in danger….

France has banned the burqa in public, and intervened militarily in Mali, but its overall stance against the depredations of Islam has been haphazard, piecemeal and ineffective. Regardless of the kneejerk actions taken by the French government, Paris’s lights have been dimming steadily over the course of generations (you can thank Existentialist thinkers like Jean-Paul Sartre for setting the moral and intellectual tone). So have the lights in every European nation been dimming. The country that tolerates the burning of nearly 1,000 cars every New Year’s Eve is not a country that has much of a future. Its anemic, desultory policies to combat the Islamization of France are pathetic…

‘Muslims Love the Messenger Muhammad More Than Their Parents, Children and Even Themselves!’

By DAVE SWINDLE

…Question: Why do Muslims get so bent out of shape with challenges to their prophet (apart from the obvious answer of the Koran commanding death for those who do)? An answer: the historicity of Mohammed will not stand up to scholarly scrutiny. Islam has to threaten everyone with death who would reveal that the Koran is a Pagan imitation of monotheism that plagiarizes and reinvents Christian and Jewish ideas. One of the ideas that most irritates stealth Jihadists is the one argued in Robert Spencer’s Did Muhammad Exist? An Inquiry Into Islam’s Obscure OriginsIn a nutshell: Islam is just a made-up religion manufactured as a way to try and unify the Arabian empire.

…Is this blog post “hate speech”? Yes, it is. We need to start defending both the right and the necessity to hate evil. I hate the myth of Mohammed and all the pain it has brought for Muslims, Jews, Christians, atheists, and Pagans throughout history. We have to stand up and say that if we truly love Muslim people — as the God of the Bible calls us to do — then we need tohate the ideas that are oppressing them. Love people and love God, do not love ideas and images.

If you truly love people then you must hate evil ideas. When freedom is attacked, as it was again today, this is the call and the mantra we need to rebut it with:

rebellion to tyrants

Garland Texas ISD to host Islamist conference to fight Islamophobes

Texas school district to host Islamist conference to fight Islamophobes.

Click here to send your email voicing concern to Garland Independent School District officials.

The Curtis Culwell Center is hosting a conference titled “Stand with the Prophet in Honor and Respect” that calls out “Ready to defeat Islamophobia?” according to the Sound Vision Foundation, “a not for profit organization serving Muslims.”   This event is scheduled for Saturday, January 17, 2015 @. 5:00 pm.

The Curtis Culwell Center is a Garland Independent School District property.

The Sound Vision Foundation’s web site states in part:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Ready to defeat Islamphobia?

This is not an event. It is the beginning of a movement. A movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message. Salla Allahu Alaihe wa Sallam.
 
This benefit will raise funds to establish a Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community, which will develop effective responses to anti-Islamic attacks, as well as to train young Muslims in media.”

 

Here are the conference speakers:

Imam Siraj Wahhaj (according to The Clarion Project)

  • Wahhaj was listed as an “unindicted person who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
  • Wahhaj supports the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law) governance, including its criminal punishments. “Islam is better than democracy.  Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what?  It will happen,” he has preached.
  • In September 2013, the NYPD justified its surveillance of Masjid at-Taqwa by pointing to evidence of terrorist and criminal activity there. The assistant imam is suspected of using the mosque to raise money for terrorist groups.
  • Wahhaj has been a Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America since 1997 and was a member of the North American Islamic Trust’s Board of Advisors from 1989 to 1993.
  • For much more information on Imam Siraj Wahhaj go to The Clarion Project

Abdul Malik Mujahid (one who wages jihad), (according to CreepingSharia) said “Qital [killing] is an essential element of Islam. And sometimes you don’t like it. Qital is ordained upon you, though it is hateful to you, but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you….And one example is, now we have 60 or so Muslim countries, and not a single one of them wants to go for Qital and Jihad for Bosnia. Qital is ordained upon you though it is hateful to you.”

It is truly disappointing that a Garland Independent School District property is hosting an event that is aimed at fighting against honest, God fearing Americans who have legitimate concerns about the Islamist movement in America.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to voice concerns to Garland Independent School District officials about this event.

Impregnating America with Muslims: Consequences to Our Society

Part1: Muslims carry an entirely opposite world view on women’s rights, religious rights, free speech and religious choice.

This past week, December 16, 2014, an Australian-Muslim named Man Haron Monis held 17 people hostage in a downtown Sydney restaurant.  He killed two before being killed.  Politically correct media reported on his “insanity” and being a “lone wolf”, but in fact, Islam drove his actions toward violence.

In the Koran; Chapter 4 vlawfare1erse 89: “They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.”

The Koran specifically states, “Convert or kill all non-believers.”  Mohammed, an illiterate and savage tribal warlord, who inspired Islam, beheaded and be-handed anyone who opposed him.

In the 21st century, Muslims disrupt every Western country they inhabit. It’s the nature of their “beast”.  Muslims lead with violence when they don’t get their way.  Once they get their way, they lead with more violence to their own.  One look at the Middle East and Africa shows endless violence toward others led by Islamists.

In order to be faithful to the Islamic religion, Muslims ultimately must degrade and kill all other people who follow any other religions.  Islam means “submission.”   Once all others submit to Islam, peace will occur.

Unfortunately, once Islam dominates, no one enjoys free speech, choice of religion, choice of thought, women’s rights and/or any chance at a free society.
