Civilizational War

THE CIVILIZATION OF ISLAM

One of the clearest lessons about Islam is found in the Sharia. The largest part of the Sharia is devoted to regulating the life of Muslims down to the smallest detail. There is no aspect of life that is not regulated-sex, food, art, business, education, prayer, manners, speech and how to think and not to think. There is no aspect of life that is outside the power of Sharia-religion, politics, ethics, culture are included. The Sharia is the operating manual for a complete civilization. Islam is complete within itself and needs nothing from the outside.

The Sharia has one other quality that is as important as the totality of its scope. The civilization of Sharia is not just different, it contradicts our civilization.

Inside Islam justice, religion, politics, law, human rights and compassion do not mean what they mean to us. All of these ideas are based on the principles of submission and duality as found in the Sharia.

OUR CIVILIZATION

Our civilization is based on the principles of the Golden Rule and critical thought. We do not always fulfill the principles, but they are the ideals we strive for, and can be used for debate and self-criticism to correct and improve our culture.

Our principles lead to the ideals of critical thought, self-criticism, equality of all peoples before the law, freedom of thought and ideas, freedom of religion, public debate, separation of church and state, liberal democracy and a free-ranging humor.

These are beautiful ideals and they are worth keeping and striving towards. Do we meet them? No, but what is more important they contradict the Sharia. It is one thing to fail to achieve these ideals, but it is entirely another to see them disappear as a public option under the impact of Sharia. Sharia law limits critical thought, self-criticism, equality of all peoples before the law, freedom of thought and ideas, freedom of religion, public debate, separation of church and state, liberal democracy and humor.

CIVILIZATIONAL WAR

Part of the genius of Islam is the totality of Sharia, which includes a concept of war that attacks the host civilization at every aspect of its being. In modern times the military power of Islam is weak, but this is more than compensated by its ability to attack along legal and cultural lines under the guise of being a religion.

As Sharia is applied to a society, the host civilization is annihilated in each and every manifestation of culture. This annihilation is demonstrated by a peculiar fact about the history of Islamic countries-part of it is missing. Afghanistan used to be a Buddhist civilization. We see its remnants in ruins and fragments such as the Bamiyan Buddhas that were destroyed by the Taliban. Who knows the Buddhist history of Afghanistan? Practically speaking, it does not exist. Who knows the history of how Turkey, North Africa, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq went from being Christian to Islamic?

We don’t know the history because of the total annihilation of the past cultures by Sharia law. As time goes on customs, law, art, literature, and ethics of the host culture are replaced by Islamic values under the application of Sharia. The result is that there is nothing left of the history before the implementation of Sharia law.

There is a second aspect of this annihilation-the dhimmitude of the Kafirs (non-Muslims) remaining inside Islamic society. If you talk to Christians who are left in Islamic countries, they are an abused people who are unable to fight back after centuries of suffering and degradation under Sharia law. They are not supported by other Kafirs and are left to suffer under the oppression that will eliminate their few numbers. Whatever memory they have of the past is ignored by those who should be defending them.

If we are to go down the Sharia road, history teaches that it has always led to an Islamic mono-culture. In the end, there is no such thing as a little Sharia.

    Finding a chink in the armor of Islam is not easy. It has been designed over centuries to prevent any change. I must confess that I like Newt Gingrich’s recent statment that there should be no ground zero mosque until there are churches and synagogues in Saudi Arabia. Time to draw a line in the sand.

    In response to Carmen. I am a Latter day Saint or “Mormon”, and I would like to advise you and many others out there, that “Mormons” are not polygamists. Yes that was practiced by eary members of the church but it has not been practiced for over 100 hundred years. I appreciate your comments, but you should be better informed before making accusations.
    I love the web site. Lot of useful information that I don’t feel is biased or afraid of the Islam like the media and society. I wish more journalists would take similar stances and really read the history of Islam before defending it in the western world. Thanks

    You say”Polygamy is illegal here”
    True. But unluckily is it permitted for “religious reasons”. Mormons, for example, are polygamic. And for what I know, Great Britain is sort of aknoledging arabic poligamy,as long they don’t marry in Europe. If they go and marry their second or third wife in their countries, they not only are allowed to have how many wifes they like,but they also get the government money for each wife. Don’t know how you call it in english. In italian they are called “assegni familiari”. So, we ought to assert the law, and stop the stupid mormons as well!
    Oh, BTW I am italian, and am really enjoiyng all your compliments… Thanks a lot. I am only worried because the decree has not passed the second screening yet. And, with things going as they are, there might be difficulties. But I also think that Europe has understood, and we are standing up to them. No Minarets in Switzerland, no burquas in a few countries already,Sarcouzy is sending away the nasties back to their own countries. Italy ha manged to stop the immigrants illegal boats. We are moving on. We will manage. it won’t happen without a fight, but we will. Cordoba house? To mean they ruled in Europe? But Europe kicked them out, in the end. Don’t not forget it, Rauf!!

    Why would anyone want to be in this religion. I am a woman but the very fiber in me cannot understand why anyone could live this way. Do any women or men in this country want this kind of DE-EVOLUTIONARY MINDSET. Good Lord it’s bad enough listening to the political parties hypocritically ‘Out God’ each other but BE FORCED to understand God through the eyes of 7th Century Morally Bankrupt people is unthinkable. Where do you begin to bring these people ‘Mentally’ in to this century?
    GOD SAVE US FROM THESE HUMAN ATROCITIES- TS

    Most Westerners don’t have a clue as to the comprehensive scope of shari’a.

    I’m hoping (Vain hope?) that all of this to-do over the Ground Zero Mosque will encourage Americans to find out what shari’a really means.

    “The Sharia has one other quality that is as important as the totality of its scope. The civilization of Sharia is not just different, it contradicts our civilization.”

    &

    “As Sharia is applied to a society, the host civilization is annihilated in each and every manifestation of culture. ”

    Two wonderful observations (also truth) are expressed brilliantly.

    May be we can add Maldives to Afghanistan.

    Sharia possesses all the tricks to disguise its totalitarian agenda…there is taqiyya (sacred prevarication), kitman (dissimulation), maslaha (changing the rules in the public interest of Islamic supremacism) and the wonderful tool of hisbah (clerical police). Hisbah is the enforcement agency of Sharia using bully squads to make people submit to Islalmic dominance. Hisbah can be official or unofficial, vigilante street justice. Both are permitted by Sharia.

    What makes Sharia advance (similar to roots that crack a large stone) is the brilliant, built-in FLEXIBILITY of it.

    If it can go straight ahead, Sharia goes to the right, if not right, then left, if not left then over or under.

    Sharia’s brilliant duplicity is opposed to the slow-moving, open process of Western law.
