Decapitation and Capitulation - Taki's Magazine

The always politically incorrect Taki...
"Islam is not a peaceful religion, but a murderous one, and most Muslims wish us dead. The quicker we get used to the fact, the better off we'll be."

Our "ally", Saudi Arabia, honours the repellent Zakir Naik

The oleaginous Zakir Naik has been award a top prize for "services to Islam", by the equally repellent Saudi regime.
I'm a bit of a demon for punishment about this stuff, so over the years I have watched a number of YouTube videos of Naik preaching.  He's quick, smart, charming even (in his oily way), and certainly knows his Koran, which he quotes with facility.
He's also in favour of:

  • Killing homosexuals, 
  • Killing apostates from Islam, 
  • Waging terrorist against non-Muslims, 
  • Not allowing churches in Muslim countries, 
  • Having sex with slaves.  
  • He's also a 9-11 Truther, though that's maybe the least of his repellent views.

And yet, our so-called "ally", Saudi Arabia, seems fit to award their top prize to him.  For "services to Islam", no less.
And that's after they decided to imprison and publicly whip a critic itself, just days after the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
These two repellent characters, Naik and Saudi, deserve each other.  But do we deserve them?
Why, one would think that the Saudi regime held the US, the west, in contempt!

There Are 13 Countries Where Atheism Is Punishable by Death - The Wire

Surprise, surprise, all are Muslim countries.
And in all but one, you will also face the death penalty if you become an apostate, that you no longer believe in Islam.

Why the survey of British Muslim attitudes is so profoundly disconcerting - Comment - Voices - The Independent

Large minorities, majorities in some cases, don't think that Islam is compatible with western values and sympathise with Islamists.

'Jihadi John': The bourgeois terrorist - CNN.com

Again and again we see that Jihadi terrorists aren't the poor and disenfranchised. They're well to do. Middle or upper class.
Same with all the 9/11 and 7/7 terrorists. All were professionals with fine jibs.
What must happen for Obama and co to acknowledge this truth, which must be faced if we're ever to deal effectively with the threat?.

They sought paradise in a Scottish field — and found hunger, boredom and mosquitoes » The Spectator

Somehow I missed this in my favourite Speccie...
/Snip
"...designs for living always end in tears, or worse. From the Russian Revolution to Jonestown, programmes for human happiness come a cropper. It's best to muddle along as we are, not because human beings are morons or suckers, or traitors to the cause, but because life is meant to be messy, muddled, contrary, comic. In any event, when the balloon goes up, I have my plan ready. I shall hide in the stockroom at Morrison's (Strood branch), spending what's left of eternity scoffing their individual fruit pies."

It’s not Netanyahu’s fault that Jews in Europe are afraid » The Spectator

"Oh, you sap, you halfwit. How can you not see that what is happening now is of a different order entirely? The number of anti-Semitic attacks rising exponentially. Drongo jihadis opening fire on synagogues and Jewish shops — not on Israeli embassies, not on Netanyahu, but on ordinary Jews. Can you imagine the response from the politicians if these sorts of attacks had been committed by white Christians against Muslims? Or indeed by Christians against Jews? And yet when it happens to be Muslims murdering Jews there is no great furore about this fact; instead it is swept to one side: simply a case of 'extremists' versus 'ordinary people'. No, that is not what it is. But given their investment in multiculturalism, the politicians will not accept this obvious point. If our Jewish community gets the hell out to Sderot or Jaffa, it will be this wilful and cowardly blindness which has propelled them there."

UK: Muslim former Cabinet member gave official posts to Islamic supremacists

Cartoonists have a duty to fight these controlling taboo -- The Times

This is a terrific article by Daniel Finkelstein. I came across it in the weekend edition of the Japan News that I picked up here in Niseko, Hokkaido (where the snow is great, the skiing fine and issues of Islamic predations are far away...)
"Blasphemy provides oppressive elites and arbitrary courts with a vague law you can offend against even without knowing."
Finkelstein refers to an "invaluable book", Silencedby Marshall and Shea, which explains how blasphemy law has become the primary tool of control by oppressive regimes across the Muslim world.

It Doesnt Matter One Bit What Obama Thinks True Islam Is

It doesn't to Muslims what non-Muslims think is the "true" Islam. There are various versions practiced in the real here-and-now world. Which one succeeds - a more tolerant Indonesian version or a less tolerant Middle Eastern version - is a battle to be fought within Islam. Not by the President of the United States and his error-full dilutions on "true" and "distorted" Islam. Or any other western leader for that matter.

Could Islam have something to do with it?

Three British schoolgirls, 15 years old, have left for Syria to fight for the Islamic State (ISIS).
They are - or, presumably, were - straight A students at the Bethnel Green Academy, from upstanding middle class parents who are distraught at their actions.
But, but... Obama has been telling us that "violent extremism" arises from poverty, alienation, lack of opportunity, discrimination and so on. It has nothing to do with Islam, he insists.
These girls are none of the above, like so many others who have committed themselves to the Islamic State. They are not poor, lacked no opportunities, were not alienated.
These are bright girls. Don't we think they could have read up on the doctrines of Islam, as propounded by ISIS leader Abu Bakhr Al-Baghdadi, a doctorate scholar of Islam? Doctrines of Islam he writes about clearly and forcefully on the Internet?
Think that might have a teensy bit to do with it? Dunno, but surely worth exploring. But Obama has put off limits any such exploration to all in his Administration.
"Do NOT mention the Islam!" his resounding command.
