IN 1993, HARVARD PROFESSOR OF POLITICAL SCIENCE SAMUEL P. HUNTINGTON PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS, BASED ON HIS 1992 LECTURE AT THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE, ENTITLED “A CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS.”
IN 1996, HE PUBLISHED HIS EXPANDED THESIS IN A BESTSELLING BOOK, THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS AND THE REMAKING OF WORLD ORDER.
Unfortunately, the political classes in the United States and Europe paid little attention to his work and thesis. The need for cheap oil, the lust for cheap-labor profits, and the emerging dominance of multiculturalist philosophies and rabid forms of diversity-engineering and political correctness blinded Europe and America to the true nature of Islam that had been much better understood by previous generations of cultural and political leadership.
Islam can only be defined by its sacred doctrinal standards—the Koran and the Hadiths (traditions) and Sira (life example) of Muhammad—and measured by its true history. It cannot be redefined according to political correctness standards and whitewashed history no matter how much liberal academic and media blather and Muslim Brotherhood bribery attempt to portray Islam as a religion of peace and tolerance.
It is basically an aggressive totalitarian ideology wrapped around a core mixture of religious borrowings expediently amended by Muhammad and including a number of heretical Jewish and Christian tales.
In the not too distant past, Western religious and political leaders had a firmer grasp on the truth than the fairytale version of Islam that now endangers the U.S., Canada, and much of Europe. In a 2004 raid on a Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Virginia, the FBI uncovered a strategic plan to deceive American leaders on the nature of Islam, destroy American Constitutional government by “Civilization Jihad,” and impose Sharia Law on all.
We are in a Clash of Civilizations and are very near losing it by making immigration a sacred cow, by which ignorant and depraved politicians are pouring millions of Muslim immigrants into the West with little thought or conscience regarding their belief and commitment to the Islamic doctrines of Supremacy, Sharia Law, Jihad (Holy War against all non-Muslims), and their likely catastrophic consequences. Increased terrorism is but a small but certain part of the risk.
The sacred doctrines of Islam call for its religious and political dominance in every nation.
Relentless deception and agitation leading to violent Jihad and the overthrow of all competing religious, government, and judicial systems are obligatory to the faithful followers of Muhammad.
Islamic Law (Sharia) embraces every facet of Muslim life and the lives of non-Muslims who come under its dominion. We have also foolishly extended the meaning of religious liberty to absurd politically correct levels endangering millions of lives and the religious freedoms of everybody but Muslims. We must not take leave of our senses to accommodate sacred cows or unrealistic social expectations.
Here are just a few of the warnings left to us by revered leaders of the past.
Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus of the Roman Catholic Church, born 1927. Pope 2005-2013.
“Islam has a total organization of life that is completely different from ours; it embraces simply everything…There is a very marked subordination of woman to man; there is a very tightly knit criminal law, indeed, a law regulating all areas of life, that is opposed to our modern ideas about society. One has to have a clear understanding that it is not simply a denomination that can be included in the free realm of a pluralistic society.”
Edward Gibbon, English historian (1737-1794), author of: The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
“Instead of a perpetual and perfect measure of the divine will, the fragments of the Koran were produced at the discretion of Muhammad; each revelation is suited to the emergencies of his policy or passion; and all contradiction is removed by the saving maxim, that any text of Scripture is abrogated or modified by any subsequent passage.”
Sir William Muir, Scottish historian, scholar, and translator of Middle Eastern languages. (1819-1905).
‘The sword of Muhammad, and the Koran, are the most fatal enemies of Civilization, Liberty, and Truth, which the world has yet known. Some, indeed, dream of an Islam in the future, rationalized and regenerate. All this has been tried already, and has miserably failed.
The Koran has so encrusted the religion in a hard unyielding casement of ordinances and social laws, that if the shell be broken the life is gone. A rationalistic Islam would be Islam no longer. The contrast between our own faith and Islam is most remarkable. There are in our Scriptures living germs of truth, which accord with civil and religious liberty, and will expand with advancing civilization. In Islam it is just the reverse. The Koran has no such teaching as with us has abolished polygamy, slavery, and arbitrary divorce, and has elevated woman to her proper place.”
Theodore Roosevelt (1858 – 1919) was the 26th President of the United States (1901 – 1909)
“Christianity is not the creed of Asia and Africa at this moment solely because the seventh century Christians of Asia and Africa had trained themselves not to fight, whereas the Muslims were trained to fight.
Christianity was saved in Europe solely because the peoples of Europe fought. If the peoples of Europe in the seventh and eighth centuries, and on up to and including the seventeenth century, had not possessed a military equality with, and gradually a growing superiority over the Mohammedans who invaded Europe, Europe would at this moment be Mohammedan and the Christian religion would be exterminated.
Wherever the Mohammedans have had complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared. From the hammer of Charles Martel to the sword of Sobieski, Christianity owed its safety in Europe to the fact that it was able to show that it could and would fight as well as the Mohammedan aggressor… The civilization of Europe, America and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization, because of victories through the centuries from Charles Martel in the eighth century and those of John Sobieski in the seventeenth century.
During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king, the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Muslim conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today, nobody can find in them any “social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influences are concerned.
There are such “social values” today in Europe, America and Australia only because during those thousand years, the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do — that is, to beat back the Muslim invader.”
President John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) simply said, “The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Muhammad is the prophet of God.”
John Calvin (1509-1564), a French theologian highly influential in the Protestant Reformation in Europe and the religious and political philosophies of American colonists including the “founding fathers,” said that Islam “substituted an idol for the true God.”
Methodist founder John Wesley (1703-1791) spoke of Muslim rage, fury, and revenge and called them “destroyers of mankind.” America’s most renowned theologian, Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), thought there was a possible connection of Muhammad and Islam to Revelation 16:13-14 concerning the end times.
Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, is concerned about Muslim immigration and wants a temporary halt to it. Democrat Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton is calling for open-door immigration and more Muslim immigration in particular. The Clintons and the Clinton Foundation have received substantial millions in donations from Muslim governments. But where do our Congressional candidates stand on Muslim immigration? As usual, most are avoiding the issue. Congressional issue avoidance could prove fatal to our liberties.
