Islam and the West

There is much ignorance on this subject these days, even history seems not to have reached the social justice warriors who want to welcome Muslim refugees no matter what their intentions or attitude towards our culture. Central to this is the Crusades, used frequently by deranged jihadis still stuck in the 8th century mindset, and beset with misconceptions and lies that fuel the liberal-left guilt attitude to Muslim immigration to the West.

‘Misconceptions about the Crusades are all too common. The Crusades are generally portrayed by liberals as a series of holy wars against Islam led by power-mad popes and fought by religious fanatics. They are supposed to have been the epitome of self-righteousness and intolerance, a black stain on the history of the Catholic Church in particular and Western civilization in general. A breed of proto-imperialists, the Crusaders introduced Western aggression to the peaceful Middle East and then deformed the enlightened Muslim culture, leaving it in ruins. For variations on this theme, one need not look far. See, for example, Steven Runciman’s famous three-volume epic, History of the Crusades, or the BBC/A&E documentary, The Crusades, hosted by Terry Jones. Both are terrible history yet wonderfully entertaining.

So what is the truth about the Crusades? Scholars are still working some of that out. But much can already be said with certainty. For starters, the Crusades to the East were in every way defensive wars. They were a direct response to Muslim aggression­an attempt to turn back or defend against Muslim conquests of Christian lands.

Christians in the eleventh century were not paranoid fanatics. Muslims really were gunning for them. While Muslims can be peaceful, Islam was born in war and grew the same way. From the time of Mohammed, the means of Muslim expansion was always the sword. Muslim thought divides the world into two spheres, the Abode of Islam and the Abode of War. Christianity­and for that matter any other non-Muslim religion­has no abode. Christians and Jews can be tolerated within a Muslim state under Muslim rule. But, in traditional Islam, Christian and Jewish states must be destroyed and their lands conquered. When Mohammed was waging war against Mecca in the seventh century, Christianity was the dominant religion of power and wealth. As the faith of the Roman Empire, it spanned the entire Mediterranean, including the Middle East, where it was born. The Christian world, therefore, was a prime target for the earliest caliphs, and it would remain so for Muslim leaders for the next thousand years.’
‘[…] the warriors of Islam struck out against the Christians shortly after Mohammed’s death. They were extremely successful once the most heavily Christian areas in the world­quickly succumbed.’

Similar to the lie that white Europeans invented and ran African slavery, when it was actually Muslim Arabs, white liberals are still thrown into confusion and guilt by the very mention of slavery [still practised in Muslim countries like the Saud dictatorship], and the young ones are so ignorant they start from imagined white guilt, which is exploited by those with an agenda, whether Muslim or just non-white.

With the mixing of Islam with Western democracy there’s a major problem; human birthrate is roughly 50% male/female. Muslim males are allowed to have more than one wife, and old, established, rich men often have several wives, some as young as 12, leaving none available for those younger males, who are forbidden from marrying kuffirs. Result; sexual frustration. Result, too few female muslims for young male muslims to ever marry except outside the religion, so prevalence of rape of non-Muslim females, made more likely by Qu’ran sanctioning rape of ‘Kuffirs’. If ever a problem was set to blow up, this is it.

It’s not Islamophobia to talk or write about this, a phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something, and there’s nothing irrational about fearing the effect Islam is having on our previously developing, tolerant and civilising society. Notice it’s the only religion this epithet is used with [originating with Muslims wanting to silence criticism they are unused to]. There’s no Buddhophobia, Hinduphobia, Shintophobia etc. but then they’re just religions, Islam isn’t, it’s political, expansionist and colonial, as it has always been.
