What the obsession with the Ukraine war really says about Americans.

True religion is an ongoing act of conscience while false religion evades the internal accountability and externalizes it into political causes.
All we have to do, then, is decide which is the "true religion". The trouble is, "resolving" this contentious issue has led to centuries of bloodshed!

"According to the dominant narrative—as upheld by mainstream media and Hollywood, pundits and politicians, academics and “experts” of all stripes—Islam was historically progressive and peaceful, whereas premodern Europe was fanatical and predatory."

SPIKED article: The left-wing case against identity politics

Interesting article although, as I regard Edward Said's concept of "Orientalism" with its supposed "othering" of non-Europeans as a load of claptrap spouted by a resentful west-hating Arab Christian dhimmi, I cannot logically endorse Brendan O'Neill's concept of "neo-Orientalism"

Of course, the UK has one or two Muslims of Pakistani origin. However they are all moderate sharia-rejecting Muslims who believe the practice of Islam should be confined to ritual and dietary observance like prayers, fasting and the like. Yes indeedy, the UK has somehow managed to combine untrammelled Muslim immigration with ensuring that only moderate Muslims enter the country and not people who might get murderously enraged if they think their prophet had been insulted either in reality or a dream.

Jordanian Islamic Scholar Said Radwan: Al-Andalus (Spain), Crimea, East Turkestan, Other Places Are Islamic Lands, Just Like Palestine; They Should Be Under Islamic Rule

FULL ARTICLE

Unfortunately such Islamic iimperialist claims on other people's countries are routinely endorsed and encouraged by historically illiterate western progressive commentators who have swallowed wholesale the claptrap put about by too many western "historians" (who have spent too much time being impressed by Islamic geometric ornamentation rather than critically assessing historical records) that Islam-dominated lands of past centuries - particularly Muslim-occupied Spain - were prototypes of the harmonious "multicultural" societies they moronically hope to create through open borders mass Muslim immigration.

This continued aggressive intent by the "Muslim World" to "take back" non-Muslim lands that were only "theirs" in the first place through the doctrine of "might is right" is sufficient moral justification, on grounds of self defence, for past western invasion and occupation of the hostile Islamic entity's core territories like Algeria, as well as the creation of the state of Israel as a Bulwark against those inspired to attack their non-Muslim neighbors on the false premise of a divine mandate supposedly given to a seventh century Arab trader known as "Muhammad".

SPIKED Article: "This was an act of Islamist terrorism – stop pretending otherwise"

From article:
The killer was motivated by a warped ideology that loathes democracy, freedom and Jews, and worships violence and death. Ali even told the
And that ideology is called ISLAMISM

Unfortunately the author is not averse to a bit of "pretending" so as to avoid facing unpalatable
facts:

They are supposedly chomping at the bit to go after Muslims and are incapable of distinguishing between a religion (Islam) practised by millions of law-abiding Brits and a political ideology (Islamism) that has claimed dozens of British lives in recent years.
That the practice of Islam "by millions of law-abiding Brits" does not go beyond eating halal, praying and other rituals does NOT mean that is all Islam is about. Furthermore, Muslim parents who put their female children in hijab are enforcing a piece of Sharia law on them. They are carrying out the Quranic command to "enjoin the right and forbid the wrong" (Quran 22.41) ie enforcing the dresscode of Allah on their girl children like it is enforced on females in general in shariah states. In other words it is a political act as well as a religious one.

In Europe and North America there is a tendency among ethnic minorities, whatever their differences, to see themselves as united in common historical and present-day victimhood at the hands of racist white people. This collective self image is of course supported and encouraged by white leftists. In France "people of color" are eager to join countries like the UK and US in likewise dividing the French population into non-white victims and white victmizers.

The trouble with all this is....

Any white leftists reading this care to answer the question posed by Hatun Tash (a Person of Color) of why she should respect Muhammad?

For my part, I respect Muhammad as much as Muhammad respects me. So how much does Muhammad respect me? Well, in verse 7.716 of his fake divine revelation Muhammad likens rejectors of Islam like me to dogs. That's how much Muhammad respects me.

If any leftists out there , for whatever muddleheaded leftist reasons, want to respect Muhammad despite him calling you hellbound dog analogs that is YOUR problem. However, don't demand that the rest of us join you in your craven self-abasement.

In the following video a Muslimah points at a Bible and says "I don't believe in this". This is her right, as I am sure she would agree. Unfortunately, we know from experience that many Muslims are not so accepting of the right of non-Muslims to openly express our disbelief in the Quran. Indeed, in Muslim majority countries (eg Pakistan) pointing at the Quran and saying "I don't believe in this" could very easily get a person savagely killed. Given the teachings of Islam it is easy to understand why Muslims feel at perfect liberty to deny the cherished religious beliefs of non-Muslims but have such difficulty in accepting the right of "Kafirs" to do likewise vis a vis their own religion of Islam.

However, it is unfortunately necessary to remind leftists and other political "progressives" that the freedom to openly deny or otherwise "offend" the beliefs of the followers of religions other than one's own should not be the sole privilege of Muslims.

Bukhari is a liar?

Well, he was compiling the "sahih" hadith 200 years after Muhammad's death and he did it in Bukhara hence the name which is today's Tajikistan.

The hadiths are pure fabrications. the 'ishnad' are probably also made up after 200 years.
isnād, (from Arabic sanad, “support”), in Islam, a list of authorities who have transmitted a report (hadith) of a statement, action, or approbation of Muhammad, of one of his Companions (Ṣaḥābah), or of a later authority (tabiʿī); its reliability determines the validity of a hadith
Islam is based on a collection of different religions, mainly pagan, Jewish, Christian, Sabean, Zoroastrian, and a mixture of others Muhammad (if he even existed) came across and created his cult from all those.

Also, Islam did not start in Mekka, and not in the 7th century as the SIN (Standard Islamic Narrative) claims.

The perpetrators were the Abbasids from today's Iraq in the 8th-9th century.
They then retrofitted Islam to the 7th century to Mekka.

Say what western leftists? Why don't we lay on free planes from Nigeria to fly in unlimited numbers of its Muslims into our countries? After all who but a farrightracistislamophobe would be concerned that we could be letting in considerable numbers of people like THIS GUY and many more who share his views and are willing to act on them? Moreover, even if one or two do slip in among the vastmajorityodmoderatemuslim seekers after a better life who follow the dominant shariah-rejecting pacifist lovey-dovey Sufi creed, we can easily bring in legislation to stop people from saying the sort of hurtful provocative things that goaded Muslims into an entirely justified murderous rage against the Christian student named in the above linked article who, after all, was simply an Aunty Tom who chose follow the religion of the white colonialists instead of Islam, which is the true religion of all self-respecting People of Color!

The racist hatred of black people that drove the perpetrator of the recent Buffalo supermarket mass shooting is of course not confined to the creature that carried out this despicable atrocity. For every white racist individual who carries out such an act there will be many more white racists who secretly approve of what they have done. Even if there are white racists don't actually approve of such murderous expressions of anti-black hatred their dislike of non-whites will prevent them from feeling any human sympathy for or genuine outrage on behalf of the victims of this atrocity and others like it.

FRONPAGE Article: "Don't Mention Christian Persecution"
Those MEP groups that voted against the proposal included the vast majority of the European United Left, the Greens, the Social Democrats, and the Renew Europe group—in a word, and to use American parlance, the “Left.”
The left - which indeed includes the yellow-bellied "Greens" - do not, of course, wish to acknowledge or promote anything, however factual, that will call into question their portrayal of Muslims as the world's No1 Victim Group, and certainly not anything that might cause the unwashed masses to view Muslims as the world's No1 PERPETRATORS of murder and mayhem. The left's sacrificing of the truth is the first step to them sacrificing their own native non-Muslim populations to their god of "multi-culturalism" and untramelled Muslim immigration.

SPIKED Article: How PC fuelled the grooming-gangs scandal
Spoiler! :
How PC fuelled the grooming-gangs scandal

The authorities were so terrified of being called racist they let serial abusers off the hook.

A new review into allegations of historic child sexual exploitation in Oldham, Greater Manchester has provided yet another grim entry in the never-ending grooming-gangs scandal.

It’s all so outrageously familiar. Vulnerable young girls were drugged and sexually abused by gangs of largely Asian – or, more accurately, Pakistani Muslim – men. And the gangs did so with seeming impunity, as police and the local authorities effectively looked the other way.

How many times have we been here over the past few years? Rotherham, Oxford, Rochdale, Derby, Telford, Newcastle, Huddersfield… Some of the details vary. For the fast-food joints in which Rotherham’s predators sometimes lurked, read shisha bars in Oldham. But it’s the same dispiriting story of Pakistani Muslim men exploiting and raping girls mostly from white working-class backgrounds, while the authorities look on uselessly, refusing to investigate too deeply for fear of appearing racist – or, in the case of Oldham, for fear of providing ‘an opportunity for far-right racist elements to capitalise politically’.

In Oldham there are particularly miserable twists to the tale. The report reveals how Shabir Ahmed, the ringleader of the grooming gang in Rochdale, worked for Oldham council, including as a welfare-rights officer, between 1988 and 2006 – despite claims of sexual abuse being levelled at him for several years. Indeed, in 2005, one of his victims, then an adult, notified Greater Manchester Police of a serious allegation of child sexual abuse perpetrated by Ahmed. The police and later the council failed to respond properly to this and other allegations. In the words of the report: ‘There were serious multiple failures by both Greater Manchester Police and Oldham Council to follow the procedures in place to investigate the threat [Ahmed] presented to children.’

Which is one way of putting it. In May 2012 – six years after a serious allegation was made – Ahmed was found guilty of two rapes, aiding and abetting rape, sexual assault and trafficking for the purposes of sexual exploitation. He was sentenced to 19 years’ imprisonment. He was found guilty of 30 more rape charges in June 2012, and given another 22 years inside.

What if the police had responded seriously to the allegations made against Ahmed? They could have intervened far earlier than they eventually did. Perhaps they could have protected some of his later victims from the misery that was to come.

But then, in officialdom’s eyes, Ahmed was the wrong type of perpetrator. As revealed in 2020, in an independent review into how sexual child exploitation was dealt with in Greater Manchester in the 2000s, the police were only too willing to shelve investigations into grooming gangs. They were worried about the ‘many sensitive community issues’ they faced, given the alleged perpetrators’ religious and ethnic background – they feared ‘incit[ing] racial hatred’. That report concluded: ‘The authorities knew that many [victims] were being subjected to the most profound abuse and exploitation but did not protect them from the perpetrators.’

And not only was Ahmed the wrong type of perpetrator, those being abused were the wrong type of victim. They weren’t articulate middle-class women with media careers, the sort of people the #MeToo movement was motored by. They were working-class girls who often lived in and out of care. As a result, their complaints to the authorities were simply not taken seriously. This is made painfully clear in the Oldham report in the case of ‘Sophie’, who was sexually abused aged 12. In 2006, she went to Oldham police station to say she had been raped by, in the words of the report, an ‘Asian man’. The police dismissed her, telling her to come back when she wasn’t drunk. She was then taken away from the police station by her abusers, who proceeded to subject her to multiple sexual assaults.

It is obscene what has happened in Oldham, Rochdale, Rotherham, Oxford and beyond, from the almost unimaginable horrors to which these young girls were subjected to the cruelty, depravity and often sheer evil of the perpetrators.

But in some ways the response from the authorities and the police is even more disturbing. They knew what was happening, as countless whistleblowers have since revealed. And yet all too often the authorities put perceived racial sensitivities above the protection of those who ought to have been in their care. These girls were the victims of the gangs themselves, of course. But they were also the victims of the politically correct cowardice of officialdom.

This is what needs to be tackled – the elite’s wilful refusal to face up to a distinctly un-PC reality in society’s midst. Some in positions of power and influence have tried to do this. Think of Rotherham’s Labour MP Sarah Champion, who wrote a piece for the Sun on the problem of Pakistani grooming gangs in her constituency. The response of the then Corbynite Labour Party was telling – Champion was forced to step down from her position as shadow equalities minister.

Too often, this is what happens when you speak too loudly about the scandal of grooming gangs. With the accusation of Islamophobia and racism hanging heavy over your head, you’re ostracised and made suspect. And the problem of grooming gangs is then allowed to fester – allowing bad actors on the far right to hijack the issue and use it to smear all Pakistanis.

Then the next miserable report or review comes along and reveals the same problems and the same failings. This has got to stop. If not now, then when?

FRONTPAGE Article: The Only Rape Where Victim-Blaming Is Okay
Yet, even in this, Islam can turn to those “progressive,” godless elements that dominate Western society for cover. For, just as “the Left” has worked long and hard to portray Islamic intolerance, violence, and terrorism as the West’s fault—because of the crusades, because of colonialism, because of cartoons, because of Israel, because of freedom of speech—it now adds and legitimizes Islam’s worldview concerning Western promiscuity to the list of reasons that “provoke” Muslims to attack.
Spot on! To any "progressives" reading this: SHAME on you!!!!
