Western Dhimmitude is Enabling Bloody Jihad

Jan 8, 2015

Imagine if the Christian religion were responsible for some 250 million deaths over a 1400 year period. Imagine if the New Testament brimmed with passages commanding the death of the unbeliever. Imagine if we had daily headlines of bloody terror attacks done in the name of Christ by devout Christians.

Imagine mass slaughter of the innocents on the streets of New York, Boston, London, Paris, Sydney and other Western cities by armed militant Christians. Just how would our ruling elites and mainstream media be responding by now?

parisDo you think they would say, ‘Well, we can’t judge the whole bunch by a few bad apples. We must be tolerant. We cannot be judgmental. We must look within to see what we have done to cause all these Christian attacks. They were surely unstable people to begin with, and acting as lone wolves. This clearly has nothing to do with Christianity.’

Um, no. We know exactly how they would be responding. They would demand that Christianity be banned, that the Bible be banned, that churches be closed down. They would condemn Christianity and Christians en masse for being a bloody, evil death cult.

Yet when we have exactly all this happening, except it happens to be done by devout Muslims, we live in denial, hide our heads in the sand, make Islam out to be a great and noble religion, turn the terrorists into the victims, and make every excuse in the book for them.

The duped dhimmis in the West in other words are just as responsible for these daily terror attacks as are the attackers themselves. By defending the attackers and blaming the West instead, they are simply enabling and encouraging plenty more such attacks.

I have already had an absolute gutful of the clueless wonders in the lamestream media repeating their diabolical mantras about “Islamophobia” and “racism” and “xenophobia” being the root cause here, and how we must tolerate Islam, and how this is simply the work of a deranged lone wolf, etc, etc.

The dhimmis at our ABC for example have been running these lines ever since the 12 Parisians were murdered by Islamic jihadists. Hardly anyone is even using the ‘I’ word. Fox News is one of the rare exceptions here, willing to speak of “Islamist executioners”.

But most of the MSM has been morally repugnant here, and they seem to be acting as agents of Islam. There is no other way to describe their treasonous actions. CNN for example actually attacked the satire magazine Charlie Hebdo for “going over the line” in offending Muslims.

Hey, CNN, let me bring you back down to planet earth. Charlie Hebdo was proud to be an equal opportunity offender. They were provocative and attacked everyone, whether Christians, Jews, or anyone else. And guess what, all these groups who were regularly attacked by CH did not find the need to purchase assault weapons and gun down the editors, the police and others.

Why is it that only one religion in the world – a political ideology really – seems so intent on killing every last man, woman and child who dares to differ, who dares to disagree with this death cult? Why have Christians or Jews or Buddhists not bombed CH?

And the Associated Press said “We Won’t Use ‘Deliberately Provocative’ Images,” referring to the Mohammad Cartoons which Charlie Hebdo was willing to bravely run. Hey, stooges at the AP, I got news for you: claiming your religion means killing all infidels and waging holy war against all non-Muslims is being provocative, not showing a few lousy cartoons.

And remember that Obama and other world leaders were also keen to attack CH for running with these cartoons, claiming they were “offensive”. Well, I find these useless leaders offensive. Give me some satirical cartoons any day of the week over bloodthirsty murdering jihadists.

Every media outlet in the West, if they had the slightest bit of guts, should be running these cartoons in solidarity with their murdered brothers in Paris. But no, these clowns are doing all they can to claim these attacks are somehow our fault, and we are to blame for any jihadist attack.

As Mark Steyn comments:

My Wednesday appearance on The John Oakley Show was dominated by the breaking news from Paris of this morning’s murderous assault on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Unlike so many of the supposedly “edgy” “satirists” on this side of the Atlantic, congratulating themselves on their transgressive “bravery” at one back-slapping awards ceremony after another, the editors, writers and cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo were genuinely brave – and paid for it with their lives.
I did not know at the time I spoke to John that among the dead was Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier, the editor of Charlie Hebdo and a great cartoonist in the French style. Two years ago, he said: It may seem pompous, but I’d rather die standing than live on my knees. He did. He was an heroic figure, and he paid for it with his life. But he wasn’t being in the least bit pompous, merely stating what ought to be far more obvious to far more people.

As I say, the dupes in the media and our ruling elites are actually collaborators with the jihadists. And as such, they ought to be punished with similar severity to those with the fingers on the triggers. Those throwing the bombs and those defending these miscreants are really cut from the same cloth, and are both to be condemned.

A new novel just released by award-winning French author Michel Houellebecq, called Submission, deals with a near future in which France is controlled by sharia law, with a Muslim President ruling the country. His is a work of fiction, but it really should be put in the non-fiction section of bookstores.

With over 5 million Muslims in France, this country, as I have documented so often already, is well under way to becoming a Muslim nation under sharia law. This is not fiction, but reality coming soon to a nation near you. And with dhimmi tools running most Western countries and media outlets, it will likely happen far faster than this French novelist imagined.

  • For once, atheist Richard Dawkins is right:
    “No, all religions are NOT equally violent. Some have never been violent, some gave it up centuries ago. One religion conspicuously didn’t.”
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/01/07/atheist-richard-dawkins-has-a-message-about-islam-in-the-wake-of-frances-deadly-terror-attack/

  • In 2005, Garry Trompf, the retiring Sydney university professor whose chair was within the religious studies department, said: “When I work on religion and politics, I find that Australian intellectuals have been caught napping”” (Aust. 7/12/05).
    Trompf was a rare scholar of religion and politics.
    The MSM and intellectual elite who champion tolerance, one of the pillars of the Enlightenment, are reaping what they have sown in relegating religion to the crackpot bin, or ironically, delusional fantasy.
    They are among those whose knowledge of deception is limited. The hour is getting late, but it’s not so that they can’t declare their error of judgment and reappraise the encroaching global Caliphate as an idea couched in religion and politics, whose violent agenda is an outreach that threatens to destabilise the West.

  • Mark, that’s a good comment, but let’s remind readers that it was forced out of him begrudgingly when he was challenged to follow the evidence.

  • Its what happens when one “religion” (and I use the term advisedly when it comes to Islam) happens to be dominated by one particular race of people. Opposition to the religion therefore appears to be racist. In a morally-relativist world, where spiritual discernment is scarce and spiritual confusion reigns supreme, political correctness will dictate what the commentariat will say. We,in the west, have stopped the teaching of history (or at least replaced it with a leftist revision of it) can be told any old rubbish because we don’t know any better. These ethnic groups which seen to dominate Islam, seem to find it easy to convince the a gullible west that they’re being “oppressed”. It suits the progressive and academic narrative of our institutions of learning and public broadcasting, while issuing the Islamist cause with a blank cheque to commit any number of atrocities without censure.
    And to say that these attacks are not associated with any organised terrorist organisation and are “lone wolves” neglects to acknowledge that, no, they’re not alone and they are a part of a massive organisation. Because they act under their own volition doesn’t make the source of their inspiration any less culpable. The same writings which inspire the “moderate” also inform the extremist.

  • You know Bill some idiot will bring up the crusades, witch burnings etc that happened centuries ago and talk as if they are still going on today……………I guess they are like Rip Van Winkle and have not realized that most other religions have evolved into civil society!

  • @John
    Compelling atheists to recognise truth is a start.

  • I was watching the commentary of CNN regarding the killings in Paris. It made me want to pick up a gun and shoot at the TV. Rather than condemning the killings and discussing the role of Islam as the motivating force, the brain dead journalists were comparing the killers to the “far-right” in France who wish to ban Islam and islamic immigration and saying the latter were just as much a threat!! We need a modern-day Nuremberg trials so liberals in the press can be shot and executed for their treason over the years.

    The French people’s reaction to the killings is laughable and totally meaningless. They should all get on their knees and consecrate France back to Christianity, the ONLY solution to the Islamic cancer gripping France and Europe

  • Talking heads everywhere keep asking what solution is there to the problem of Islam. That solution is not reforming the religion or arming the “moderates” – the only solution is the eradication of this religion. Not only because of its physical threat to humanity, but because it is utterly false. What’s the point of a reformed religion that is still utterly false in its doctrines and teachings? Because it is utterly false, Islam will still continue to kill and persecute Christians whatever it morphs into.

  • Yet the likes of Newsweek can only print anti-Christian hate pieces like this right before Christmas;

    “They wave their Bibles at passersby, screaming their condemnations of homosexuals. They fall on their knees, worshipping at the base of granite monuments to the Ten Commandments while demanding prayer in school. They appeal to God to save America from their political opponents, mostly Democrats. They gather in football stadiums by the thousands to pray for the country’s salvation. They are God’s frauds, cafeteria Christians who pick and choose which Bible verses they heed with less care than they exercise in selecting side orders for lunch. They are joined by religious rationalizers—fundamentalists who, unable to find Scripture supporting their biases and beliefs, twist phrases and modify translations to prove they are honoring the Bible’s words.”

  • Just a thought, Bill. This may already be happening, perhaps on a random basis, but I wonder if our security officials should be monitoring the sermons preached at the major Muslim mosques, such as Lakemba Mosque where jihad may be encouraged in our nation, to then be carried out by impressionable followers of Islam.

  • There are calls for unity in France, that society stands foursquare not with the victims of Islam but the Muslim population who, poor dears, must be feeling vulnerable at the moment. My heart pumps custard.

    This is exactly the same reaction you described Bill in your article, concerning the murder of Ms Dawson and Mr Johnson in the restaurant in Martin Place Sydney
    https://billmuehlenberg.com/2014/12/17/jihad-and-backlash-baloney/

    In this case, it will not be the 10 journalists and two policeman who are the victims but the Muslims who will be worried about a backlash from the rest of France.

    Talk to any of the useful idiots who call for social cohesion and solidarity with Islam about the psychopathic and paedophile character of Mohammed and they stuff their fingers in their ears. They just will not have it. One can only put this determination to become blind and deaf to a mixture of Stockholm syndrome supernatural power.

    But France is now paying for following the ideology of Jean Jacques Rousseau who made Freedom an absolute above the Biblical Truth and Justice of Jesus Christ. The French talk instead about the great goddess, Freedom of expression, and yet silence anyone who cries for the human right of the unborn baby to life, or the right of a child to have a mother and father, or the right of children not to be corrupted by homosexual perversions.

    What terrible hypocrites. God is not mocked. They reap what they sow. And we too are under the same judgement of God. The tail is now wagging the dog. Deuteronomy 28:43-45

  • (They would demand that Christianity be banned, that the Bible be banned, that churches be closed down. They would condemn Christianity and Christians en masse for being a bloody, evil death cult.)

    They are already working on it, and they do condemn all Christians for the crusades, the inquisition and the paedophile priests.

    Mind you, the lame stream media are all part and parcel of the world wide death cult. those who are supposed betters are just using the jihadists as their brown shirts, letting them do the dirty work, while they sit back and try to distance themselves from it (in the minds of the viewers that is).

    obumma gave the jihadists free reign when he said “the future does not belong to those who insult the prophet of islam”. well their victims now have no future, do they mr fake president?

  • To Damien Spillane:
    Here is creation.com’s rebuttal to that Newsweek nonsense and their suggestion on what to do:
    “We would encourage readers to contact Newsweek and point out their lack of journalistic integrity.”

  • Fear is the real issue hear, FEAR! People are scared to speak out here because to say it how it is or what you think or feel will get you insulted, intimidated, attacked or killed. When your dealing with a people who have a belief that is so strong & they are prepared to die for it, that can make them formidable opponents. We in the west with our comfortable lives & our civilised values have become too complacent & that has been our undoing as this problem will i think get worse.

  • David,
    Liberty after the french revolution became a quasi-divine authority- an ultimate to appeal to in the absence of God.
    it appealed to the pursuit of liberty as the justification for violence and oppression.The end of liberty was held to justify the means of terror.
    As the famous words spoken by Madame Roland before she was guillotined- “Oh Liberty, what crimes are committed in thy name”. You say-
    “The French talk instead about the great goddess, Freedom of Expression”. When a society rejects God it transcendentalizes the alternatives- ideals such as liberty and equality, which , without God cannot exist. These quasi-divine authorities are not open to challenge, yet, it was freedom to express concern of the future of France under Islamic rule which was attacked and to silence. Where should their anger be directed- not a those who bear the truth but those who will attempt censorship at the point of a gun.

  • Phillip, Francis Schaeffer in his excellent book, “How Should We Ten Live ?” Chapter 8, entitled, ” The Breakdown In Phillosophy and Science,” quotes Jean Jacques Rousseau .

    Schaeffer writes,

    Theoretically this individual freedom ( liberty) would be perfectly reflected in the “general will” through the ‘Social Contract’. The utopianism of this concept was shown by the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, during which the purification of the general will meant not only the loss of freedom for the individual but the reign of the guillotine. Actually, one did not have to wait for the Reign of Terror to see the problem. It was already in Rousseau’s own writing .

    Rousseau’s concept of autonomous freedom clashed with his own presentation when he moved from the individual to society. In the ‘Social Contract’ (1762) he writes, ” In order that the social contract may not be an empty formula, it tacitly includes the undertaking, which alone can give force to the rest, that whosoever refuses to obey the general will shall be compelled to do so by the whole body, This means nothing less that he will be forced to be free.”

    Yes, liberty from God’s laws, the freedom of a wild beast, the freedom to give full reign to one’s lusts, impulses and ambitions.

    In place of the guillotine, the French have the Muslims butcher’s knife.

  • Dr Bill Warner’s Why We Are Afraid: A 1400 Year Secret is one of the best quick but detailed rundowns of the history of Islam’s violent conquering.

    I don’t think he’s a Christian but the information herein is a real must for everyone with open eyes to Islam:

  • Thanks Jason, but not at all helpful in my view. One might as well have argued that the West should have stayed out of the internal struggles of Communism. Or Nazism. In all three cases, we have had political ideologies trying to take over the world. Of course the West should be involved in such matters.

  • I can’t add much to the comments here, but I’m glad there are a few places like this where the truth and common sense hold sway.

  • Hi Bill and readers.

    Re: the article in-question Albert Mohler provides this excellent commentary addressing the worldview differences between the Western elite and Islam:

    And Damien Spillane, you might like Rev Mohler’s response to the Newsweek article to which you make mention:
