No Islamic Country Can Ever Hurt the West?

Lulled into complacency, many have forgotten the lessons that our ancestors learned when faced with the monster that is Islam. Perhaps they were never told, for that which passes for instruction on history or world cultures mostly overlooks the unpleasantness of conquest along Islam's "bloody borders." Today's headlines and stories often overlook the fact that the perpetrators of violence, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, are Muslims acting against non-Muslims in the name of Allah. Hugh Fitzgerald, at Jihadwatch.org, reminds us of how entire civilizations were sucked up a lost in the maw of Islam and how, even today, our contemporaries and our countrymen are suffering even after assurances that there is nothing to fear.

We’re often told that the defense against global jihad is disproportionate, and its advocates fear-mongers, because “no Islamic country can ever hurt the West."

Really? What about Islamic "groups" then? What about communities of Muslims, living in the West, working actively to transform that West, now by noisy demands, and now by ostentatious displays of sweet reason, and by a sudden great attachment to the beauties of "pluralism" and "dialogue" -- as on display in the taqiyya-kitman of the "new, improved" Islam that those Bright Young Muslim Things hold out as having so much promise, and that Tariq Ramadan, in his sinister way, is now flogging as well? "Dialogue," "pluralism" that is at the heart of Islam -- oh good god, spare us this nonsense.

Islam has been "hurting the West" for 1350 years. It took over what was once a central part of the Christian world -- Mesopotamia, Syria, Egypt, the rest of North Africa. It took over the ancient homeland of the Jews, and apparently they who had endured the rule of Romans and Byzantines found the Muslim overlords so oppressive that many of them had to leave the Land of Israel -- which is why eventually 90% of the world's Jews ultimately came to live under Western Christendom, terrible as its own intermittent persecutions may have been, rather than live in the "paradise" of Islam.

Islam has been "hurting the West" ever since Muslims conquered Byzantium and destroyed its civilization -- though the flight of Greek scholars to the West, it is true, helped to spark the Revival of Learning.

Islam has been "hurting the West" of Christians and Jews, and "hurting the East" of Hindus and Buddhists, for as long as it has been in existence.

"No Islamic country can hurt the West"? Madrid, Beslan, New York, Washington and a thousand plots and subplots uncovered in recent years suggest otherwise. But the hundreds of billions of dollars now being spent to defend against the Jihad, to monitor radiation levels in mosques, to protect synagogues and churches, Jewish and Christian schools, outspoken political figures (how much does it cost the Dutch state to protect Geert Wilders and Ayaan Hirsi Ali?), parliaments, subway systems, railroad stations, airports, bus stations, chemical plants, oil refineries, and on and on -- all because of the existence of Believers in Islam -- does that not inflict economic damage, as Bin Laden and others have expressly noted with such glee, on the Western world?

And what of the vast sums being expended now in Iraq, in a vain hope that "democracy" will remedy the situation, just as naive Israelis used to believe that making the desert bloom and bringing prosperity to one corner of the Middle East would serve as a "Light-Unto-the-Nations" as well, instead of as a horrifying example to Muslims of their own backwardness -- which was contra naturam, for by all the laws of Allah it was right, it was proper, it was just, that Islam "is to dominate and not to be dominated."

    Interesting article. Brace yourself for the accusations of racism, anti-islam, you might be called a zionist or even a crusader.

    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PASSAGES FROM THE BIBLE AS IT HAS IMPLICATIONS ON THE WAR AGAINST TERROR/ISLAM and the claim of Israel that god gave them the land. If the child is an infant than the Judeo-Christian version becomes null and void and we are wasting our time and resources i.e. we could save trillions of dollars and create a more peaceful world rather than fighting against Islam the religion of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all).

    The passages are central to islam/chritianity/judaism.


    GENESIS 16:16
    And Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ish’mael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ish’mael to Abram.
    GENESIS 21:5
    Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

    At Genesis 22 Abraham had only 2 sons others came later. The Quran mentions that it was Ishmael that was sacrificed hence the reference in genesis 22:2 your only son can only mean someone has substituted Ishmael names for Isaac!!

    BY DOING SOME KINDERGARTEN ARITHMATIC USING ARABIC NUMBERS (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)
    NOT ROMAN NUMERALS (I, II, III,IV,V,VI,VII,VIII,IX,X)
    NB no concept of zero in roman numerals.

    100 - 86 = 14

    ADD 3 YEARS FOR ISSAC’S WEANING

    THAT WOULD MAKE ISHMAEL 17 YEARS OLD IN GENESIS 21:14-21
    BUT IT IS A DESCRIPTION OF AN INFANT.

    PLEASE GIVE A STRAIGHT FORWARD REPLY

    GENESIS:21:14 - 21

    So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-Sheba. When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes. Then she went, and sat down over against him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, “Let me not look upon the death of the child.” And as she sat over against him, the child lifted up his voice and wept. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Fear not; for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him fast with your hand; for I will make him a great nation.” Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the lad a drink. And God was with the lad, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow. He lived in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

    AS THE DESCRIPTION OF ISHMAEL IN GENESIS 21:14-21 IS THAT OF AN INFANT IT CAN BE ASSUMED SOMEONE HAS MOVED THIS PASSAGE FROM AN EARLIER PART OF SCRIPTURE!!! AND HAVE GOT THERE KNICKERS IN A TWIST.
