Some seventy years on from the coalition of evil that almost – almost – succeeded in the genocidal disappearance of every Jewish person on the planet, together with the attempted world-wide establishment of a Nazi/Islamic Jihadist Muslim global Caliphate, those same forces of evil are yet again on the bloodthirsty warpath as outlined and commanded in the evil book known as the “glorious(!)” Qur’an. Once again, the West is at the gates of Vienna.
Two of England’s finest Prime Ministers had something to say about the dangers of Islam, some times referring to the heinous ideology by the name of its demonic founder. First up, Sir William Gladstone. As the attached illustration proclaims, he called the Qur’an an “accursed book” and once held it up during a session of Parliament, declaring: “So long as there is this book there will be no peace in the world.”
The text of the Qur’an has not changed from the late 19th century to the early 21st. What has changed is the prevailing attitude toward the book. Now it has become a manifestation of bigotry and hatred to see in the Islamic holy book anything but peace and tolerance. But the text of the book remains the same. If it was an impediment to peace in Gladstone’s day, it is now. If it is an uplifting exhortation to peace and tolerance now, then it was in Gladstone’s day as well; and we’re still at the gates of Vienna.
Next up, Sir Winston Churchill, and his take on the threat of (as he termed it) “Mohammedanism”:
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.
It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step, and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it (Islam) has vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
At the gates of Vienna.
In a piece today in American Spectator, Jeffrey Lord delivers a stern warning as to what We The People are facing, especially in light of a leader and administration which seemingly refuses to believe how evil and disingenuous this barbarous ideology truly is. One may well encapsulate the entire situation from this excerpt from one of the outstanding commenters (“Travvy”) on the thread:
You still don’t get it. He’s not sleepwalking to Armageddon. He IS Armageddon. He’s the Key. The Green Light. The accelerant. He’s The One they’ve been waiting for.
“And I saw The Beast rise from the Sea (the world of politics). And he was given a MOUTH to speak Haughty and Blasphemous words.”
He’s a Muslim, sitting on the Throne of this Century’s Holy Roman Empire. A creature who’s name shall not be spoken (by the Media) as to why it was okay for him to get Judges to UNSEAL his Political Opponent’s SEALED RECORDS, during his Campaigns for Illinois State Senator, and, again, for his U.S. Senate Campaign, but nobody can see what he’s hiding. He is the Catalyst for everything that is going on in the Middle East. It was Him that left Iraq UNPROTECTED, after the War had been won.
It was Him who threw Mubarek under the Bus, as to pave the way for the installation of his Muslim Brotherhood Buddies’ Leader – Morsi. The same Muslim Brotherhood that is Embedded in this Administration’s Intelligence Agencies, and at Homeland Security. It’s him who has a Muslim Convert heading up Central Intelligence. Him, who has an Iranian as his Chief Special Advisor. It was Him that took out Qaddafi (who wasn’t a threat to anyone) and installed AlQaeda.
Like any agent of Evil, he goes by many names: Barack Hussein Obama / Barry Soetoro / and by the name that Hezbollah has bestowed upon him: Abu Hussain…The Deliverer. How is it, that he doesn’t even BLINK, when Flies crawl across his face, IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER? Does he not feel them? Or, is it something else? And, who’s got flies around, in the middle of Winter?
He is running cover for the Iranians, to allow them to Finish what they started. He has KNOWN about the Inbreds at ISIS/ISIL for OVER A YEAR, yet he has done nothing, so they might Finish what they started.
He Bankrupts our Country with his Spending. His policies toward Race and Income, serve to Divide Us and turn us against each other. His Economic Policies are driving Jobs and Money out of the Country. He works to Unilaterally Disarm our Strategic Defenses. Everything he does weakens the only Country on the Planet that’s keeping TOTAL EVIL from consuming all of mankind.
And, NONE OF THIS is by accident. He’s not Stupid or Incompetent. He’s The One they’ve been waiting for. The One foretold in the Book of Revelation. Why is that so hard to come to grips with?
Even a Blind Man with a Blind Guide Dog could see it.”
At the gates of Vienna.
Now on to Jeffrey Lord:
Barack Obama is at the Gates of Vienna. But America is not at war with Islam! Got that? As a matter of fact, all those ISIS (or ISIL) people cutting off heads in those videos? They aren’t Islamic at all, according to President Obama:
“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim….ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”
Never mind that the beheaders have dropped the “In Syria” or “In the Levant” and simply refer to all their accumulated turf — now the size of Great Britain — as just “IS” as in “Islamic State.” Or that they may have as much as $2 billion in stolen assets.
Who lives in the kind of fantasy that believes a self-proclaimed Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam? The atheist Sam Harris has noted this presidential assertion, agog.Writes Harris at his blog in a post titled “Sleepwalking Toward Armageddon”:
“As an atheist, I cannot help wondering when this scrim of pretense and delusion will be finally burned away — either by the clear light of reason or by a surfeit of horror meted out to innocents by the parties of God. Which will come first, flying cars and vacations to Mars, or a simple acknowledgment that beliefs guide behavior and that certain religious ideas — jihad, martyrdom, blasphemy, apostasy — reliably lead to oppression and murder? It may be true that no faith teaches people to massacre innocents exactly — but innocence, as the President surely knows, is in the eye of the beholder. Are apostates “innocent”? Blasphemers? Polytheists? Islam has the answer, and the answer is “no.”
Harris makes a point of saying: “In drawing a connection between the doctrine of Islam and jihadist violence, I am talking about ideas and their consequences, not about 1.5 billion nominal Muslims, many of whom do not take their religion very seriously.”However, he goes on to point out that:
a belief in martyrdom, a hatred of infidels, and a commitment to violent jihad are not fringe phenomena in the Muslim world. These preoccupations are supported by the Koran and numerous hadith. That is why the popular Saudi cleric Mohammed Al-Areefi sounds like the ISIS army chaplain. The man has 9.5 million followers on Twitter (twice as many as Pope Francis has). If you can find an important distinction between the faith he preaches and that which motivates the savagery of ISIS, you should probably consult a neurologist.Understanding and criticizing the doctrine of Islam — and finding some way to inspire Muslims to reform it — is one of the most important challenges the civilized world now faces. But the task isn’t as simple as discrediting the false doctrines of Muslim “extremists,” because most of their views are not false by the light of scripture. A hatred of infidels is arguably the central message of the Koran. The reality of martyrdom and the sanctity of armed jihad are about as controversial under Islam as the resurrection of Jesus is under Christianity. It is not an accident that millions of Muslims recite the shahadah or make pilgrimage to Mecca. Neither is it an accident that horrific footage of infidels and apostates being decapitated has become a popular form of pornography throughout the Muslim world. Each of these practices, including this ghastly method of murder, find explicit support in scripture.
