Islam: Imperialist Supremacist Ideology

Islam is an imperialist supremacist ideology that seeks to extend it rule and plunder subjugated populations. I’ve discussed this ideology on this venue over the past year—documented by this hyperlinked summary. And I’ve given several introductory books for those starting their study. However, Efraim Karsh, gives an excellent introduction in a single article published in the Wall Street Journal and Commentary Magazine. If this is an indication, his new book is surely worth reading. This article is perfect for those needing an introduction to the essential political nature of this ideology. Thank you, Prof. Karsh.

Efraim Karsh's article is excellent. I stumbled across it earlier today and filed it. I also sent it to several people interested in seeking out the truth.

Jason,

While the Karsh article is printing, just from the title, I keep entering a time warp.

The time is mid-1938. The place is Munich, Germany. Another fellow and country with an "Imperialist Supremacist Ideology," is squeezing cowardice from the Euro-sponges sent there to appease him. He is full of himself, of his folk, and his ideology. He threatens with all sorts of claims of technological advances, all designed to make the Euro-sponges pee in their pants. And they do.

When we were through peeing in our pants, we still had to fight him, his country, and his ideology. Because we appeased (pun intended), we caused a long and very costly war to restore what we had before this ideologue.

Parallels?

I agree. The thought of reestablishing the Islamic caliphate is central to Islamic beliefs. Personally, I don't think that they could stop fighting among themselves long enough to accomplish their goal.

Crusdaer: Personally, I don't think that they could stop fighting among themselves long enough to accomplish their goal.

I agree. But in the meantime, plenty of mayhem can be wrought.

I deliberately used words "Imperialist Supremacist Ideology" to bring to mind the parallel with the 1930. They are appropriate in both cases. Efraim Karsh, Tony Blankley, Bat Ye’or, and others are describing the situation appropriately in my opinion.

When I started the blog, I couldn’t find many articles that clearly described the threat of Islam. There were books, of course, but no brief articles. As I argued with people they couldn’t or wouldn’t believe what I was say. Nor would they invest the time to read the books.

I started to write brief summaries. When I found 6th Column I realized I wasn’t alone and I could save myself half the work by directing people there. AOW, Pastorious, Caroline, Katy, FreedomNow, AC ... and everyone who realized that JihadWatch or LGF was a meeting point of like-minded people created their own versions to target specific needs of readers who where skeptical. Now, I see our viewpoint expressed in several venues including some where I encountered great skepticism.

However, those of us who have been at it for years can take some satisfaction that we planted the seeds that are starting to sprout new friends. I still think people need help fine-tuning their understanding and learning to speak reasonably. Nothing hurts a cause more than a bunch of crazies disgracing the cause. But I’m heartened by the large number of reasonable people who have done their homework. If we see our differences as minor compared to the threat (as it was in WWII) we should do fine coming up with good options to deal with this one.

Bat Yeor is best read from the original. Reading Spenser or Alvin Schmidt quoting Bat Yeor is watering down the experience. Her book Eurabia was not as good as the Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam. If someone is serious about learning about Islamic history Bat Yeor is the place to start.

Muslims are terribly misunderstood. All these problems will be solved if we can only get more youth workers out into the underprivileged communities...


London bombers not terrorists - professor Apr 4 2006
By Kate Mansey Daily Post Staff

LONDON'S suicide bombings were not the acts of terrorists but just an extreme Muslim demonstration, a Chester professor has claimed.

The attacks that killed 52 people and threw the country into shock last July were part of a long history of demonstrations sparked by British Muslims, according to Professor Ron Geaves.

His controversial comments were made at a lecture given at the University of Chester that attracted dignitaries and members of the Muslim community from around the North West.

As part of his research, the professor's recent report looks at the history of demonstrations by British Muslims.

From the 1980s Salman Rushdie demonstrations to the anti-war protests surrounding the Iraq war, his work charts the changing nature of Muslim communities in Britain.


Prof Geaves said: "I have included, rather controversially, the events in London as primarily an extreme form of demonstration and assess what these events actually mean in terms of their significance in the Muslim community.


"The word terrorism is a political word which always seems to be used to demonise people."


The academic, whose lecture was entitled Twenty years of fieldwork: reflections on "reflexivity" in the study of British Muslims, said: "The title refers to the personal transformation that has taken place over the last two decades in which I have moved from a position of academic neutrality to one of active engagement with the Muslim community in Britain."


Prof Geaves is also pioneering the UK's first ever Muslim Youth Work degree programme.


From next year, Muslim students can gain professional youth work credentials at the only course of its kind.


It is thought that the course, to be based in Warrington and run through the University of Chester, will be copied by academic institutions elsewhere in the country as a measure to engage young British Muslims.


Prof Geaves said: "This is part of a reactionary move. People are saying 'What can we do about this situation'.


"Youth work has a part to play in terms of making sure youths don't become despondent, particularly in areas of low unemployment and bad housing." Prof Geaves has been at the University of Chester's Department of Theology and Religious Studies since 2001.


Dr Ruth Ackroyd, department head, said: "I am delighted to have Professor Geaves as a colleague in the department.


"His wide knowledge of different Muslim communities, not only in the UK, but also in the Indian sub-continent, has brought to his students a rich sense of Islam as a first-hand, lived experience rather than simply text-book learning.


"His range of contacts is also an important asset in forging strong links with faith communities as we develop our new professional degree programme in Muslim Youth Work."

Mustafa Kamel: Shall I just shorten your name to "Camel," to make it easier on both of us?


Well, Camel, YOU need an enema, maybe two. Why? Muslims are not in the slightest misunderstood except by those too g.d. lazy to buy and then read a few books or surf the great websites. YOUR PROBLEM, DEAR MUSLIM, IS THAT YOU ARE FULLY UNDERSTOOD, AND THAT CHAFES!

To "Mustafa Kemal":

Some days my producing brain runs away from my receiving/understanding brain. This happened with your comment, or so it seems. By the time I got to reading your comment, I was up to my eyeballs in alligators and thoroughly disgusted with all things Muslim. I threw a bomb, not a comment. In the cool of the evening, I had a blinding flash of the obvious: "Mustafa Kamel" = Ataturk, with a slightly different spelling. I had not run into your comments previously, but I will be on the lookout henceforth.

Best,

Interesting article. First he starts with the statement that there was "worldwide violence" over the cartoons. Of course all but the most doctrinaire rethugs know that is the pure stinky cheese. So this guy has tipped his hand early.

Then he goes on to frame the attitude of the entire Islamic world as corresponding to the rants of one of the most extreme participants in the Israel/Palestinian nutcake parade. Boring.

I enjoyed his bit on the Ottoman empire and his apparent astonisment that when countries got out of line they were treated poorly. Damn, you'd have thought he was talking about England developing the world's first concentration camps for the Boers or the French torture of Algerians during the Algerian war.

Islam invented violence and jason seems to have the tunnel vision necessary to believe that. It's pretty funny.

I read your comment that you haven't had any Islamic fanatics calling for your head yet.
I think the problem is that they don't understand English well enough without the pictures to understand what you're talking about.

I think you’re right AC. No Islamic critics. I’ll have to be content with occasional bird-droppings … as we just saw.

Crusader,
I think the problem is that they don't understand English well enough without the pictures to understand what you're talking about.

And maybe they search "cartoons of Muhammed," or something similar.

Jason, I was reading some of your comments over at AOW's blog. I was wondering what type of business you had if you don't mind me asking?

lmao, another lame ducky response. I don't believe I've read in any serious blog that Islam invented violence.
Most knowledgeable people will agree that violence and Western civilization have gone hand in hand long before the birth of Islam.
The problem is that while violence is still part of Western society, there is a shift towards democratic procedures while Islamic countries haven't evolved since their inception.

Islam doesn't allow for such free thinking.

100% pure truth.

Unlike the Holy Roman Empire, they never had an enlightment or renaissance, they never made the transition to the modern world. As a result, they can/will not stop their expansionist efforts.
