This is me putting on my fortune-telling hat. I’m watching Iran, watching Amadinejad playing with the UN, watching American apologists beating their breasts over the imagined wrongs done to Islam by democratic society and free peoples, and watching Islam making yet another push to own the planet.
Any strategist knows that diplomacy is one of the best and most deadly weapons for waging war.
So … this is how I say the playing board has been set up and is being set up, and what will happen in the near future. My little public demonstration of politicomancy.
Here are the playing pieces.
Starting in the seventies, (about the time that “students” [AKA terrorists] held American Embassy members hostage for 444 days) Muslim men came to the US using student visas with two purposes in mind. Get a useful western education, and marry an American woman. This is not because Muslim men loved American women, mind you, but because the children resulting from these unions would have dual citizenship. When the children were old enough to travel, many of these men kidnapped them back to their countries of origin, either with or without their wives. (There are American mercenary groups that specialize in going into these countries and rescuing the kidnapped Americans, but take it as a given that a lot of the snatched kids weren’t rescued.) The boys, American citizens, were indoctrinated into Islamofascism. A lot of them have grown up now. They’re American citizens, a lot of them will have found their way back to America, and they’ll be parts of sleeper cells scattered throughout the country.
At the same time, Islamofacsicm began tightening its grip through Sharia and terrorism, using repression and fear to suppress debate, on both Muslims (Malaysia, Iraq, Saudi Arabia) and non-Muslims (Denmark [2–slow link], Holland, Italy ) and practicing genocide on non-Muslims in Darfur, Sudan, , South Asia , Iraq , and planning the genocide of Israel [2, 3, 4].
It’s old stuff, new stuff—but one big plan. Islam is not a religion. It is a theocracy—a government/religion mix wherein no separation of church and state exists. Muslims are citizens of a supraterritorial nation, the Islamic Caliphate, which is a global entity, and which demands a loyalty that supercedes national loyalty. Islam as a theocracy has had one goal since its inception, and that goal, as set out by Mohammed in the Koran, is to convert all the world to Islam by any means necessary.
The pieces are in place. The useful idiots are busy keeping democratic nations from dealing with the problem of Islamofascism by claiming the problem is really caused by democracy. The President of Iran is buying time for the Iranian nuclear weapons program by lying to the UN, promising to offer an agreement.
Here are the rules of the game
I realize that most folks don’t know that in Islam, contracts with heretics (that would be everybody else on the planet) are non-binding.
Koran 9:3 “Allah is not bound by any contract or treaty with non-Muslims, nor is His Apostle.” Also translated as (9:1-3)
[9.1] (This is a declaration of) immunity by Allah and His Apostle towards those of the idolaters with whom you made an agreement.
[9.2] So go about in the land for four months and know that you cannot weaken Allah and that Allah will bring disgrace to the unbelievers.
[9.3] And an announcement from Allah and His Apostle to the people on the day of the greater pilgrimage that Allah and His Apostle are free from liability to the idolaters; therefore if you repent, it will be better for you, and if you turn back, then know that you will not weaken Allah; and announce painful punishment to those who disbelieve.”
Mohammed himself advocated over and over the technique of lying to infidels to get a good position from which to wage war and annihilate the enemy. (Read the Koran. You’ll discover all sorts of interesting things.)
So attempts as negotiating with Muslim diplomats is utterly pointless.
Furthermore, Islam in its rule-set is permitted the following (with the tacit agreement of Western Civilization, as demonstrated by the West’s refusal to draw persistent, clear links between Muslims and their actions):
- Freedom from adherence to the Geneva Convention;
- The Travelling Riot playing piece, which when played commits violence over real and imagined insults to Islam;
- The Useful Idiot Apologist playing piece, which when played declares that Islam is a peaceful religion;
- Total negation of human rights (as linked above)
- Acts of terrorism to subjugate masses, force the West to change strong playing pieces for weak ones (Spain and its coward vote following the bombing of a train), and clear spaces into which it can then invade without protest.
Western Civilization is bound to the following rule-set, however, and any deviation from Western rules will be set upon by Western Apologist Media and the Travelling Riot playing piece:
- Protection of individual rights;
- Protection of privacy;
- Protection of religion;
- Adherence to the Geneva convention;
- Being honest in treaties and agreements;
- Not saying mean things (The Pope, Theo Van Gogh, various cartoonists, anyone?)
Here is the board, the set up, and moves to the current position
All things being equal, here’s how the current board is going to play out. Iran will delay any useful action to stop it from acquiring usable nukes, and will either elicit a non-nuclear first strike at a n Iranian target from Israel, or will put its nukes into the hands of Hezbollah or another arm of the Iranian “not-us” military, and will lob a nuclear first strike at Israel. If it does the first, then Iran will respond to Israeli non-nuclear self-defens with nukes. Either way, the world media will register stunned disbelief that Iran has nukes, and has used them. Israel—what’s left of it—will pound the shit out of Iran, perhaps using a nuclear response, but probably not. Either way, ANY response from Israel will engender cries of “Israel aggression” from the rest of the Islamofascist world, who will deny Israel’s right to self-defense and promptly declare their own wars. The UN will censure Israel for overreaction, the majority of European nations will refuse to become involved, the US will waste time trying to get the UN to build a mutinational coalition to act against Iran (and such other countries as join it in its attack of Israel.
And in the US, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and western democratic nations in Europe, the sleeper cells will wake up, the radicalized mosques will activate long-held guerrilla strategies, and we’ll find ourselves fighting Islam both at home and abroad.
THEN the American population will wake up and realize that we have a genuine problem. THEN we’ll pull together as a nation, as Americans, and stop distracting ourselves from real issues with partisan bullshit. THEN we’ll act together, cohesively and with a single focus.
THEN, a lot of people are going to die unnecessarily because we are not dealing with Islamofascism NOW.
Which, of course, raises the question, how should the western world deal with Islam now?
Here is one workable endgame with DEMOCRACY WINS as the finish.
We need to start by dumping our condescension, changing our outdated ways of dealing with nations, fixing our perceptual problems, and treating Islam as what it clearly states that is (and has unswervingly stated since its inception in the 7th century AD, and not as what we wish is was.
The West—and by the West, I mean all nations that, grouped together, make up Western Civilization, (Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Western Europe, and the US, as well as some Central and South American countries, and a number of small and vulnerable scattered democracies)—needs to listen to what the majority of Muslims world-wide are saying. That Islam is a nation.
The West is currently crippled by the perceptual problem of defining Islam as a religion instead of as a nation. This is because all westernized nations recognize property ownership and hierarchical governments as the sole working models of government, and are therefore bound by a definition of nations that consists of four things:
- Countries contained within geopolitical boundaries;
- Established and recognized heads of state;
- Recognizable bureaucracies with which we negotiate, and recognizable armies defined by uniforms, hierarchies, and codes of conduct.
- A recognized national capitol.
We are, for this reason, incapable of effectively dealing with theocracies.
Islam is not a religion, but a theocracy, with a capitol (Mecca), an established government/legal system (the mullahs and Sharia), military (primarily guerrilla/volunteer, but also inclusive of the militaries of those Islamic states recognized by the West as belonging to “real” nations), leader (Mohammed), state religion (Islam), and national goal (conversion of the entire world). The word of Mohammed is conveyed through mullahs, Islamic scholars, and to deal with them, the West has to recognize that there is no one living leader of Islam, and deal with each mullah and his followers on a tribal, case-by-case basis.
Islam does not recognize the sovereignty of any other nation, because its leader, Mohammed, claimed that Allah himself claimed the whole of the world as his own and set Mohammed and his followers to the task of converting every human to Islam. Citizens of Islam owe their allegiance to Allah over that of any national government. This goal has not changed since it was set in the 600s AD, and while its success as a nation has waxed and waned, it has never changed either its goals or its methods of obtaining them.
Currently, the Islamic Nation is experiencing an incredibly successful expansion, primarily because the West defines Islam as a religion—a spiritual movement—and the west protects religions. So the West is at a loss with how to cope with the problems Islam is causing within the borders of Westernized nations as well as around the world. The Nation of Islam, which exists across borders and in almost all traditional nations in the world now, numbers one billion citizens. That’s significantly more than the population of the US, or Great Britain, or any other single western nation.
Islam declared war on the West, and in the last hundred years or so, because Islamic technology and wealth fell behind, the response of Western Civilization was, “Aw, isn’t that cute.” It shouldn’t have been.
By shifting our perceptions and recognizing Islam as that which it repeatedly declares itself to be—a theocracy—we become able to devise ways of dealing with the problem of Islamic world conquest. Nation by nation, we need to separate the part of Islam that is spiritual (and protect those Muslims who wish to worship Allah in the spiritual kingdom while acknowledging the sovereignty of the Earthly governments which they inhabit over matters of state), from the government part of Islam. We need to remove the government part of Islam from within our borders—those mullahs who preach conquest and those Muslims who deny the authority of the sovereign nations in which they live and who declare that all people must bow to Allah.
As a government to government problem, Islam is solvable. Western Democracy knows how to deal with sedition, attempted coups, and other government issues. Perception, and honesty about what we wish were true versus what is true, are the keys to the solution.
